Block usually happens by pushing away from your opponent when being attacked, and the unused down diagonals are available both with and without the button - there are 16 different combinations of directions and button states - only maybe 6 or so of those are needed to move the player - the remainder can be used for various attacks. -- Robin Harbron macbeth@xxxxxxxxxxx http://www.tbaytel.net/macbeth -- Archives (includes files) at http://www.biglist.com/lists/stella/archives/ Unsub & more at http://www.biglist.com/lists/stella/stella.html Don't post pirate BINs to Stellalist.
