Last Blade 2 Manual?

Post by Brash »

I just bought Last Blade 2 this morning for my PsVita and I am looking at some of the settings and am confused by a few. Is there a "game manual" somewhere that goes over all the stuff, especially with what your emulation options do? I tried pressing the ps home button on the vita and clicked on the manual there but it just shows general terms and conditions but nothing that explains anything in the game or game settings.

Well, for one thing it would be nice if the general game manual for the main part of the game would be nice.. you should scan the old neo geo manuals and convert it to digital.
Then there should be descriptions for all your emu settings.

the settings i am confused on is:

1. In game settings, what is "Mask Mode"? and what does it mean to have "Flash" set to On verses Off? And in video settings what is "Flicker Filter"?


2. When creating online matches to host i am not sure what the training and story mode do differently than standard create. If i create a match in one do people have to specifically search that to find me or will it show to them any and all matches created?
I just want to maximize my chances of finding people.

3. If i create a match where i change some default settings, like turning blood on, does that mean that players with blood off cant be matched to me?

4. If i turn blood on, does it force the other players to see blood? In other words, to avoid a desync, Are they forced to play at my graphics settings of i am the host?

5. I am using the PsVita version and after I change settings around it tells me it saves them.. but when i close the game down and come back to it all of my video settings are forgotten when i relaunch the game. Is that normal?

1. The first two settings terms come directly from the original game. We would have chosen more descriptive terms if we'd been allowed. :)

Mask Mode = hide your health bar so that you can't tell how much damage each has taken.

Flash = reduce the amount of full screen flash effects.

Flicker Filter = this is a new one. The original Neo Geo used to create the illusion of semi-transparent shadows by flashing a solid black shadow on/off on alternate frames. The flicker filter, when on, will blend the frames together to eliminate the flickering and make the shadows look 50% transparent. The downside, is it affects everything, not just shadows, so the characters' motions become a bit blurred too.

2. The training/story modes are just choices for what you play locally while you wait. It doesn't affect your matching options.

3. Everyone sees everyone hosting a match. Your settings choices are listed on the right side of the "Search Results" screen. You can get more details on what they mean by selecting "Help" while highlighting your desired match.

oh okay.

as for #5, it might be fixed because I re-did all my settings again and rebooted the game and it remembered that time.
