    I performed all the super moves and pro moves but still didn’t get my trophie. I need this last one to get the platinum!!! which mode am I supposed to do them in? vs. mode? arcade? practice mode? I did them in vs. mode but I got nothing for it. Am I supposed to do it against the computer in arcade? Do I have to do them all at one time before leaving arcade mode? How do I get that last trophie?

    What made you choose pale yellow for your font color here? For awhile I thought I had to guess what moves went to which character… then I noticed a slight discoloration. An eyeball headache later I deciphered some names.

  11. admin .

    @Squinty:
    Our theme used to be a completely black background, so the font color was better presented then. Thanks to your comment, we realized the mishap and amended the situation.

    Thanks for the heads up!
