The Game Engine

Super Meter System

Changed from Darkstalkers 1 to a more "common" style meter system, super meter no longer depletes when not in use.
You can whiff moves (normal and special) to gain meter, but getting hit does NOT give you meter (it does in VSav/DS3).
You also gain a minute amount of meter for blocking attacks.

Special Notes

While a Double KO or Draw usually requires one more round be played in other games, here it counts as a win for both players. This means if one person has a victory in Round 1 and the 2nd is a draw/double KO, that person wins the match (if it's best 2 of 3).

Projectile Battles:
When two projectiles (eg, fireballs) clash, they "fight" for dominance instead of just cancelling each other out. Which one wins is based on strength of attack used and timing of it's launch.:
-"Weaker" projectiles lose to "stronger" ones (eg, LP fireball losing to MP and so on), unless the weaker one is thrown after.
-Projectiles of the same strength thrown at the same time will cancel each other out.
-ES'd projectiles will go through normal ones, and EX projectiles override any other type of projectile.
