ACA NEOGEO ART OF FIGHTING

Do not pause in Hi Score Mode. It will not allow you to unpause and you will have to restart from the beginning!

Start off by choosing Hi Score Mode.

Choose Ryo.

If you have played another fighting game before, you will most likely know the generic ranged attack command. If not, it is cn_downcn_downrightcn_rightcn_S (cn_downcn_downleftcn_leftcn_S if you are facing to the left).

What you will want to do, to complete this game, is use that 2 or 3 times (however many times your power bar under your health allows). Then, jump kick them by jumping towards them and pressing cn_R2 over and over again until you win. Your goal is to earn 40k points, then lose. If you pull off a perfect victory for a round, you will earn over 40k points at once. It's pretty simple to reach 40k as long as you beat the first fighter though.

Once you hit it, just let whoever you're fighting defeat you. An old school high score initial screen will appear, press cn_right to turn the first initial into A and mash cn_R1 until it asks to post your high score online. Say yes. This will unlock:

HI SCORE Player

Quit to the main menu.

Time for the easy, but longer, part.

Choose Japanese Version Original Mode. Then, press cn_X to get past the controls screen.

Immediately pause. Choose game settings. Raise round time to 99, lower difficulty to level 1, and raise "1 stage" to 5 round. Press cn_Ocn_Ocn_X to back out of the menu and save your changes. Press cn_L1 at the menu to 'insert a coin'. Now, use the method from before (but only worry about the first round perfect). You just need to reach 200k points, but the fights will be easier and you will gain more time points. Get as many perfects as you can, but you will still most likely need to do the bonus round after fighting the fatty. Choose the ice one in the middle, then mash cn_R1 as fast as possible for thousands of extra points. By now, you might only need a tiny bit of points. So, just continue with the jump kicks to get enough points against the third enemy. Once you hit 200k, let yourself die and fill in your initials. Then, press cn_X to submit your score online.

Throughout all of that, you will unlock:
