other:  oppcr    do when opponent is crouched
        behind   do when opponent's back is turned
        (H+P)    escape command for throws
        (H+P+K)  escape command for holds
                 (not all throws and holds may be escaped)


common commands:
f,f       Dash
f,F       Run
b,b       Backstep
H+P+K     Danger-Zone cancel.  Pressing within 15 "frames" of hitting
           Danger-Zone ground will cancel the explosion and launch.
           Pressing more than once will nullify your input.
rising:
 do nothing   Rise in place
 H,H,...      Roll to side and rise
 U,H,H,..     Roll to background and rise
 D,H,H,..     Roll to foreground and rise
  add D to the end of any of the above to rise to a crouch.
 B            Backroll and rise
 D            Backroll and rise to crouch
  add K to the end of any of the above to kick upon rising.


Strike>Throw>Hold System:
     All non-movement or pounce commands may be divided into three
groups, Strikes, Throws, and Holds.  If both players input their
command at the same time, a paper-rock-scissors style system is
employed to determine who wins.  Strikes will overcome throws.  Throws
overcome holds.  Holds overcome strikes.  If both players enter
commands of the same type, (i.e. both enter hold commands) they will
push each other back with no damage.


Note about canned combos:
     Like Virtua Fighter, Dead or Alive has a number of canned combos,
for example PPK.  But for some characters these combos can be started
with several different moves like P, u,P, f,P, etc. so to list these,
some commands you will see have a star next to them, these are the
possible "starting" moves.  The combos which can flow out of these
will start with a star as its first command, this means to use a
starter in place of the star.  For example, Hayabusa has these combos:
*P                  h     10       High Straight Fist
*P                  h     11       Reverse Backfist  (back turned)
*ub,P               h     10       RyuueiTou
.*,P                hh    12       .RenDan
. *,P,f,P           hhm   18       . RenTougeki
. *,P,K             hhmD  30       . ShuuRendan
.*,K                hhS   30       .Straight, High Kick

     To illustrate this, the commands may be drawn as this tree:
     P ------\                 /--- f,P
              |    /--- P ----+
 P(turned) ---+---+            \--- K
              |    \--- K
   ub,P -----/
 |__ starter ___|____ remainder ______|

     Any of the three moves in the starter section (marked with a * in
the command list) may be used to start the combo.  From there the
remaining commands may be entered as the tree permits.  The possible
combos in this tree are:
     P,P            P(turned),P         ub,P,P
     P,P,f,P        P(turned),f,P       ub,P,f,P
     P,P,K          P(turned),P,K       ub,P,P,K
     P,K            P(turned),K         ub,P,K

2. TRICKS & MISC.
     Since many Dead or Alive machines are converted Virtua Fighter 2
  machines (Sega licensed their Model2 board to Tecmo for this game)
  some may still retain the VF2 decals.  If this is the case keep in
  mind that the "Guard" button is now "Hold".

Outfit selection:
     When selecting your character, pressing up for the top-row and
  down for the bottom-row characters will let you select their outfit.

Win pose selection:
     Pressing H+P, P+K, or H+P+K during the replay will let you select
  the win pose.  A perfect win will give a fourth pose.

Challenge Message:
     When fighting the CPU, pressing the start button will change the
  "Fight With Me" message color to green.  No useful purpose for this.

Burst Mode:
     Holding H+P+K while starting the game will turn the entire ring
  into a Danger Zone.  This is an operator setting and may not work
  on all machines.

VTR Replay:
     Pressing H+K before the replay (after winning a round) will make
  an icon appear in the lower-right corner of the screen.  Pressing P
  will "rewind" the replay animation.  This replay may be used only
  once per game.

RAIDO:
     Raido is time released about 2-3 weeks after the game's
  installation.  His picture will appear next to Gen-Fu's.
