Tekken 5 PS2 Customization

Introduction

As you may or may not know, Tekken 5 introduces fighter customization to the Tekken series, which is similar to the feature within Virtua Fighter 4. In this article, I will discuss the customization feature of the Playstation2 version of Tekken 5. Hopefully this will clear up any questions that some people may have about the customization feature.

Customizing your fighters

You are able to customize your fighters at any time from the Customize menu. While in this mode, you can edit your custom name, purchase items, and customize your fighter’s appearance. There is only one profile allowed per memory card. This profile will hold info for all selectable fighters. Select “Edit Player Name” to select the name of your profile. Select “Character Customize” to customize your fighter with items and colors that can be purchased.

The different box colors for items are:
Red = item has not yet been purchased
Light Blue = item is currently equipped
Green = item has been purchased, but is not currently equipped
Dark Blue = color of the “UNEQUIP” Box

In Customize Mode, you can zoom in by pressing R1 and zoom out by pressing L1. Pressing both R2 and L2 resets the position of the fighter back to the default position. Moving the right analog stick rotates the fighter. And pressing the select button removes all of the menus so that you can get a better view of your fighter.

Earning Money

The money that you earn can be used to customize your fighter. There are different ways to earn money in Tekken5. This section explains the amount of money that can be earned in the different modes.

————
Story Battle
————

The first time (and only the first time) that you beat the “Story Battle”
mode for a fighter, you will earn 100,000G. Do this for all 32 fighters
and you would have earned a total of 3,200,000 G. This is the best way
to begin. After you have passed the game with every fighter in “Story
Battle”, then go on to “Arcade Battle”.

————-
Arcade Battle
————-

You earn 800G for fighting a fighter of a lower rank than your fighter.
For defeating fighters at your level, you earn 1000G. For defeating
fighters at a higher level, you earn 1000G + 100 * (number of levels
opponent is higher than you). Whenever you fight against a Warlord or
higher, add 1000G to the total earned.

For example: A 5th Kyu defeating a 9th Kyu will earn
1000 + (100 * 4) = 1400G

After passing “Story Battle”, you will most likely be spending most of
your time in this mode trying to earn money.

Within “Arcade Battle”, you also have a chance to get something known as
“Tekken Roulette”. After a win, you might get a chance to multiply your
winnings for that match by 2, 3, 5, or 10. You will know that you’re
going to get a roulette if you see a red flashing light above your life
bar. “Tekken Roulette” appears randomly and may appear consecutively.

———–
Time Attack
———–

You earn 25G per win for every match, except against Jinpachi. When
you defeat Jinpachi, you earn 50G. The amount of money earned is
the same as in the Arcade version of Tekken 5. This method is the worst
way to earn money.

————-
Survival Mode
————-

For your first five matches, the amount of money that you earn
increases by 100G for each match.
For example: for 1 win you receive 100G and for 5 wins you receive 500G.

After that, your earnings will only increase by 100G for every 5 wins.
For example: 5-9 wins = 500G, 10-14 wins = 600G.

This method is okay to earn money. On average, you don’t earn as much
per match as “Arcade Battle”, but you can earn “Survival Mode” records
in the process. So far, the most that I’ve earned for a match is 1200G,
which is earned after obtaining 40-44 wins.

——————–
Tekken: Devil Within
——————–

The blue orbs that you collect count as money. You find these after
every enemy that you defeat. Also, you may find some in objects
throughout the level that can be destroyed. However, the money is
only added to your total after completing the level. If you enjoy
replaying “Devil Within”, then this is another good method to earn
money. But, keep in mind that you only earn your money after passing
a level, which may take a while.

You can earn up to forty 500,000G items for free when you play the “Tekken: Devil
Within” mini-game for a second time after you already completed all levels.
There are 8 items scattered within each level for you to find. To obtain
these items, you have to collect the red symbols that resemble the tattoo on
Jin’s arm.

Fighter Rankings

Every so often, you will be given a “promotional chance” match to improve your fighter’s ranking. If and only if you win this match, your fighter will advance to the next ranking. You will start off as a “Beginner” and can be given a promotional chance for any match that you fight, until you reach the “1st Dan” ranking. The rankings follow the order:

Beginner
9th Kyu – 1st Kyu
1st Dan – 5th Dan
Shihan
Expert
Master
Virtuoso
Champion
Legend
Sage
Warlord
Conqueror
Deity
Tekken Lord

There is also a chance for a demotion. This may occur if you lose constantly, after obtaining the 1st Dan or higher rank.

Tekken Roulette

In the “Arcade Mode”, you will randomly get an opportunity to try your luck with “Tekken Roulette”. This feature will randomly pick a multiplier (2, 3, 5, or 10) that will be multiplied by the winnings from the match that you have just completed. The pictures below are from the arcade version, but you can get an idea about how the PS2 version works.
