MBAC arcade single player messages?
« on: August 27, 2007, 07:24:52 PM »
So I came across this at Akihabara Channel today:

"I actually found out something new while playing Melty Blood today. When you press the start button while you are playing 1 player, the words above your life bar changes from “Beginner practicing,” “Practicing combo,” “Testing out stuffs,” “Accepting challenges,” “Strong challengers are welcome!” and “Challengers, please be nice”."

This is the first I've ever heard of it so I was wondering if anyone here was aware of this feature as well?

I'm assuming it changes depending on how much you suck/kick ass.

First Max Tune, now Melty Blood has personal titles. :psyduck:
At a time like this... I WISH I HAD A DIGITAL CAMERA!

The more beautiful and pure a thing is... the more satisfying it is to corrupt, isn't it?

I think it has to be Arcade mode.
At least, I think it also works on PC. I can't remember.

Karp mentioned this a little while back.

In Arcade mode, hit F5 first(pause menu), then hit the shield button to cycle through those messages.  It makes more sense in the Arcade, since it'll let any onlookers know if you are interested in being challenged.  In the PC version, it makes a little less sense since I don't know of any way to interrupt a match.

Agreed. It is supposed to mimic an arcade's function where you can tell onlookers whether you are interested in fighting or not and at what level.

Say, Ryuusoul, do you know if the Japanese (more specifically, Ecole/Type Moon) are even aware of the US Melty scene? Mint and Tokido are aware that we had a Melty tournament on the side at Evolution, but I don't know how far word would really spread about us.

<linalys> no he hasn't

This makes me curious about the Japanese etiquette for challenging in the arcade. What's it like? Would I get the gaijin treatment for challenging and beating someone who appears to be a beginner? Are you supposed to ask before challenging?

I generally do two things regardless lol:
1.)Watch the opponent. If he doesn't look like a scrub, then:
2.)Ask if I can challenge him/her.

Of course, if he's a friend, then all bets are off. :V The same kinda applies when I play Max Tune, except I make a very special exception for fishers (people who race severely underpowered cars just to add to their win count) and just go in and put him in his place. Sadly, I'm not that good that I would make that exception in MB, lol. :emo:

Unfortunately, these challenge messages won't mean a thing to me, since I can't read Moon. :psyduck:

So there's really no difference between challenging in the US or Japan?
What you described is basically what I see (and what I do too) with US players in arcades.

He was talking about his own challenges.
