How do you learn all this?
By noticing and keeping track of course.:)
Are there any other combos or moves you know? Sometimes when battling CPU's, like Warrior of light, they use HP attacks and stuff I never can figure out. Ugh, like Cervantes in Soul Calibur broken destiny.
You have to try combos a lot to know what works with what. But usually when a character is down during your combo, press jump and either hp or bravery attack hits the, especially successful, well charged bravery is likely to spawn x burst
Oh, okay. Well, maybe I'm thinking of skills then. How do you equip them?
What I do is bring up the menu and press confirm twice to access its skill set, and either mash every buttons to hell til I get my wanted skills equipped at random, or use cloud ocr and figure it bit by bit from there. very hard i'd say. I mostly do the former.
So, you bring up the menu in the battle, or on the character select screen?
In the case of dessidia, in battle map (not the battle screen), in the case of Duodecim, both normal and battle map.
So, only in story mode? How do you use them in battle mode then? That's mostly what I do in Duadisim, since story mode there is pretty hard for me. I got through a few things, but am pretty stuck now.
Another tutorial! This time, on customization.
Okay, y'all. Get your Windows 10 up to date, and your fingers on Insert+R, and your toes on your game pad, because we're about to learn how to make your main character awesome!
So, you know those sounds you hear after the end of battles? They mean things, Important things. Okay, only one of them, really, the level up sound! Press Insert+R to get a good sense of what they all mean, by pressing it after you hear a sound.
When you learn something you want to use, use customizations to use it. On the battle screen, one down from story mode in the main menu, which is after the title menu... the one with FF main music playing. If you're in story mode, I think you press it right when you're in the story submenu as well. Could be on the map though. From now on, though, because i play duodisim and can't really do story there, I'll focus on battle mode.
From the main menu, press down one, and confirm. using OCR, you'll see, in Duodisim, that you're on one on one battle. In regular Dissidia, you'll have to press down twice, as once is Arcade mode. Now, press triangle. You'll be in your character select screen, so use OCR or muscle memory to select your character. I recommend getting as used to using OCR as possible, because we'll be using it a lot for picking out skills. Skills? Come on man, just get to that part, you say? One step at a time. I've had to suffer through learning all this on my own, well okay besides the triangle part, Reddit helped with that, so shall you deal with my long windedness.
When you select your character, you'll be asked if you really, really want to view the stats for that character. Just press confirm again, and you'll be off.
The next screen contains the categories for upgrading your character. Skills, equipment, assists, you can even downgrade your character's level, if you yearn for a simpler time. Choose abilities.
Now, you're given a list of skill categories. These range from active, skills which work on button presses, to more passive skills. Choose one of these categories, although note that farther down the list, there are options to reset skills to default and such, so please use OCR to your advantage. Really, its free and built into Windows 10, and all you have to do to use it is press NVDA+R. If on an earlier version of Windows, Cloud OCR works.
For fighting skills, choose either HP or BRV (brave) in that list. You'll know its that list because it'll only have two items. The list does not wrap when holding down an arrow key. In the list of possible skills for attacks, note that these skills are more like radio buttons than check boxes, you must first choose a slot, immediately after choosing HP or BRV, then choose a skill for that slot. The first option in the skills list is always "none" which takes out any selected skill in the list. Choose a skill for the first slot, examining the effects with OCR after each press of the down arrow, pressing confirm to choose. Press cancel to back out of that slot, choose another, fill it, and do the same for all possible slots. Press cancel from the slots section to go back to choose the other, HP or BRV. Do the same there, skills there are also radio buttons, and there is the "none" option at the top of the list of skills. After all slots there are full, come back to the list of categories. Now, let's look at more passive skills. There are groups of these too, although I don't quite think these are actual slots. You actually can choose more than one skill here, like check boxes, but some skills cannot be used together, and you'll be told so. For example, air dash and onmi air-dash cannot be used together. I recommend just sticking with air-dash, dashing towards your opponent. It is here that you can choose to automatically activate ex-mode, and automatically input ex-burst buttons, allowing ex-bursts to be accessible! After completing both categories of passive skills, exit the skills screen. The equipment screen works about the same, so go through it, using OCR every step of the way. The last thing I'll cover is the assists screen. Here,, you choose an assistant character to pop in and help you a little in battle. They'll only do one move, and you can enable auto-assist back in the skills menu to help with summoning them. Choose a character just as you normally would, and you're off. Now, exit the customization screen. OCR will show "now saving", and you'll be back where you were before customizing. If you get stuck backing out, just wait a while for it to save, OCR as good for letting you know this too. So, apart from story mode, Dissidia Duodisim has now been shown to be pretty much completely accessible. With OCR of course.
