Time for a new thread, the old one is getting way too long.
Where can I buy this game?
Try these online shops:
http://www.himeya.com/ - (No longer lists the game on their web store. Left listed in case this changes.)
http://www.paletweb.com/ - Restocked and now have both MB and MBR
http://www.akibado.com/ - Can be cheaper – these guys search for your item and try to get the cheapest price. You save a ton on shipping if you request multiple things at once, as well.
You need BOTH Melty Blood AND Melty Blood ReACT to be able to patch up to Final Tuned.
Where can I download this game for FREEEEEEEEEEEEEE?
Watches Vman’s head explode
(Seriously, this isn’t the kind of place for those requests. SRK doesnt support it and neither do the companies that make this stuff.)
Where can I download the Patches?
Final Tuned (2.501B): http://mirror.fuzzy2.com/meltyblood/
How do I install the patches?
Install in this order:
Melty Blood -> MB: ReACT -> MB:Final Tuned 2.501B
After installing Final Tuned, my in-game key configuration is all screwed up! What gives?
Try deleting the cfg.cfg file in the Melty Blood ReACT folder.
** After patching, I can’t run the game! What gives? **
Make sure you do NOT overwrite or delete _path.dat in the melty blood game folder.
What is the changelist for Final Tuned?
What are the differences between AC mode and PC mode? Which should I choose?
Mainly the control schemes.
Throws done with 4 or 6 C.
Heat activation done with 222D.
Shortcut keys have no use.
Throws done with 4 or 6 A+D.
Air throws can be chained after heavy attacks.
Heat Activation done with A+B+C.
Has A+D key for throw, A+B for dash, A+B+C for activation
However, AC mode is far superior.
Due to the games poor throw detection, it’s possible to whiff throws on airborne opponents in PC mode while intending to hit them with a C attack as antiair. It’s also impossible to perform an air C into air-throw in PC mode which forces you to use lower damage combos for some characters.
Where can I find out more about the characters/story?
What are the Damage Ratings for each character?
85% Hisui, MHisui
90% Aoko, Arc, Akiha, Ciel, Kohaku, Nero, Shiki, Sion
100% Miyako, Nanaya, Neko Arc, Satsuki, VeSion, Warc, White Ren
110% AkaAkiha, Ren, Warakia
Was current as of 2.009. I’m not 100% sure if they are the same in FT, but they are close.
Where can I find a movelist for this game?
Try Kalciane(Bellreisa)'s faq under Melty blood: ReACT on gamefaqs. Somewhat outdated but accurate enough.
What is Melty Blood: Act Cadenza?
It’s the arcade version of the game, with several differences from Final Tuned which I won’t get into in this post.
Where can I find Vids for this game?
www.globetown.net/~yukinose/muvi.htm (usually highest quality skillwise among these)
http://page.freett.com/whiteark/ (some problems w/ this one)
(Information not all from me: Most of it is Courtesy Bellreisa, Linalys, Xenozip, Master Chibi, Ikusat, Veteru, Vman, and multiple other contributors.)
