____________________________________________________________________

 The names of the stages are taken from the Nintendo Killer 
Instinct Players Guide (page 5, see Work Cited section for more info), 
because I can't think of a better way of naming these stages.  I don't 
want to be a plagiarist, so I'm stressing this beforehand. 

* = only seen in 2-player mode, Tournament Mode, and Practice Mode
This means you won't see these stages on 1-player mode.

Up and Quick Punch:  Ice Temple
Up and Medium Punch:  Skull Chamber *
Up and Fierce Punch:  Ice Statue *
Up and Quick Kick:  Castle Rooftop
Up and Medium Kick:  City Rooftop
Up and Fierce Kick:  Desert Rooftop

Down and Quick Punch:  Desert Bridge
Down and Medium Punch:  Palace Interior
Down and Fierce Punch:  Lava Bridge
Down and Quick Kick:  City Street *
Down and Medium Kick:  Castle Interior
Down and Fierce Kick:  Industrial Complex

And of course, the Sky Stage code... *

Sky Stage Code:  Both players hit Down and Medium Kick when 
choosing your character.  Don't know if it has to be simultaneous 
(in the arcade, you didn't have to be) or if you have to hold it down 
until the fight screen appears, but I do it anyway to make sure.  
There is no audible or visible sign that you've enter the code right, 
but this code should work.

There are some stages you can't choose ( i.e. Jago's Tiger Shrine 
Stage or TJ Combo's Gym), and I'm not sure if they are 
choosable at all.

Any new codes you found?  Send me e-mail at the address 
at the end of the FAQ.  If it works, I will give you credit for helping 
me by adding your name to the FAQ.

Game Genie Code Section...

This is Orlando Fernandez's Game Genie FAQ.  Everything is intact, and
if you have any questions about his codes, e-mail him (not me, I don't
have a Game Genie).

SPECIAL NOTE:  You must additionally use Galoob's published master code
3C61-D4DF for any of these codes to work.

KI Soundtrack...

The complimentary CD is very well done, and features lots 
of remixed songs from the original arcade game.  Some are almost 
exactly the same, and some are remade and sound even better.  It also 
has two original songs not in the arcade.  Also included is the 
Humiliation track, which isn't too hard to find.  Very well done by 
Rare, and hopefully more video game companies will start making 
more soundtracks for their games.  I think it would do
very well here as it does in Japan, where video game soundtracks are 
abundant.

Nintendo Killer Instinct Players Guide...

Well, I have made a little review on this book too, to help people 
decide if this book suits their needs.  The players guide is very nice, 
with very helpful tips and information on playing KI for SNES.  The 
guide covers all the characters' basic moves, Danger Moves (ending 
moves or "fatalities"), Combo Breakers, Humiliations, Air Doubles, 
Ultra Combos, Ultimate Combos, and lots more.  Some cool new pics 
of the characters are in here, too (if you like looking at new pics of 
KI characters).

Also in there are listings of combos for each characters' section in 
4 different categories (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Elite) 
that are easy to understand.  There is also a combo chart section that 
shows what you can do to open a combo, what you can stick in between, 
and what you can end the combo with.

At the end of the book is the section, "Psycho Combos", which 
has all these rad combos that are either flashy or unbreakable combos.  
For example, the infamous C. Thunder "Slowdown" combo is in there.

The only drawback I saw in this guide is that it doesn't tell you how to 
get the most hits out of an Ultra Combo to get the most amount of hits 
possible.  I guess it's up us to find out.

I would recommend this book, especially if you want to get better at 
the Arcade version of KI.  I've used this guide to help me play Spinal 
at the arcades, and I've improved tremendously (with that, and having 
KI at home to practice with). You'll improve on KI in no time with this
book.
