Did anyone work out how to activate/win a grapple in this game?

Despite my reviews of the MVS and Mega Drive versions, where I claim the grapples are pure luck, I could be wrong... On the other page did you see Glowsquid's post with a link to a 1 CC playthrough? That link would definitely be the best place to start looking for answers.

I see a reoccurring theme in old Japanese arcade games: they're meant to be played a very certain way to perform optimally (for example the 1 CC KOTM2 playthrough). That video, which I am just watching myself, is awesome. However, what seems totally mind blowing and super secret from our western perspective is certainly old news to Japanese arcade goers from back in the day. I am almost certain there were developer leaks and/or clear walkthroughs (for KOTM2, for example) in Japanese game magazines weeks or days after a release. It is interesting to play with an old school Japanese gamer because he/she will show weird secrets and effective strategies in seemingly frustrating situations. Grin

There's no strategy. The player who made that video started a thread on NeoGeo.com: he says he reverse-engineered the game, and found the game randomly decides who wins the grapple each frame.

OK. Does this mechanic also apply to the Mega Drive and SNES ports?
