^ Yeah, when you consider the books and the ledges you realize that, for a guy who is supposed to be an awesome martial artist, Ryo has a serious balancing problem. The big Shenmue III secret will be that Ryo has vertigo.

I have not taken karate since I was 13 and I am still better at balancing than ryo. I can walk across a beam without even my hands out. Course practiced it since I was a kid.

Balancing ..*shudders* that crap always pissed me off when I ran through it the first time.

Im not a big headed personbut i can do it running without dropping a book. Ive gotten used to it over the years, plus i have no patience and i want to get out of Scarlet Hills to go exploring and having fun.

Hardest thing i would say for me to do after 6 years is play the Guilin section and run right through it like i did for the first few years. I never talked to Shen Hua, i never looked around at the scenery and i didnt listen to the music and feel the atmosphere. Now i never holdin the right trigger. I walk every inch from getting off the boat at Langhuishan, all the way to the caves. I chat about everything thats possible, and its became my favourite part of Shenmue II by leaps and bounds. That demonstrates to me, how great Shenmue II is as a long term game. You can appreciate something new 6-8 years on thats always been there. I have the game menu up to freeze the time, and i have the music playing constantly asim on the Dojo.


Amazing.

- The hidden Lucky Hit scroll on Dragon Street.
- A flawless shift of carrying crates.
- Getting the slot machine certificate thingy with one coin.
- Defeating any arm wrestler that charges $60 or more - seriously, you need three hands for that shit.
- Playing through to get the bad ending because I don't have the patience.

I`m pretty sure some of those arm wrestler matches are impossible depending what stage you are on. There's a video with someone using autofire on an emulator and still losing lol

Is autofire like cheat that "presses" the buttons for you per se?

And I have never beat the arm wrestlers in question either.

It totally drains your energy when you've tried to take a stab at it more than a couple of times. Maybe there's a hidden RPG thingy for those high end arm wrestlers, like the duck race. :lol:

I have zero trouble with any of the fighters, be it street fighter, Eileen, Izumi or Master Baihu, so there's nothing wrong with my reflexes. Something dodgy is going on.

Yes, you can make the keys press automatically at very high rates. Here's the vid

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_mPVtWtcvA[/youtube]

they say something about crate moving having an effect in the video comments

It's possible to beat all wrestlers at their first, maybe second stages. Don't be surprised if anything after that is impossible lol. I wonder why they made it so? Are they trying to highlight Ryo's weakness?

Wow, yeah, it does not look like he was meant to win in such a hard match in the first place.

when a controller comes with autofire you just press for example A key and as long as you keep pressing the key the game will send the A key multiple times very fast.
A Macro is a program that press combination of keys for you. For example if you press B button you will make a fatality in mortal kombat or a move like hadouken.
Anyway I don't think is possible to cheat in arms wresling in shenmue because of the QTE event. The autofire will mess the QTE.

I manage to defeat them all with just my dreamcast controller. They are easy just put controller on a hard surface and use your index finger instead of your Thumb finger.
I think metal gear solid from psx when you been tortured and you have to press the key is hard too. I beat it legit also.
Anyway beating the Jaimaican guy is harder. Anyone here manage to beat him when he gets serious?
He start betting for 500$ and he lands bulleyes 100% + time bonus!!
So even if you land 100% bulleye he will beat you because he of the time bonus....
