here (http://www.dk-soft.com/maribato.html)

Looks really fun, but seems to only have a demo out right now. If someone could figure out the controls and so forth, could you please post?

okay... here's what I've figured out so far..

controls by default are the four arrow keys and Z, X, and C.

for the menu, Z is accept and X is cancel.

My PS2 pad adapter has some problems with this game, and I had to unplug it to get any of the controls working right.

You can only select two characters in the demo, Yumi and Yoshino.

EDIT: Direct link to the demo is here (http://dksoft.sakura.ne.jp/maribato_trial101.EXE). (about 91 megs, but slooooooooooooooooooooooooow)

Wow this is so cool. I'll definitely get it when it comes out (hopefully). I can't dl the demo though, it's slowww. BTW, is this a tag team battle?

(Is it just me or does that swordslash Rei does look like something stolen from MB's Nanaya Shiki's 236B?)

Hehehe! That's one of the funniest things I've seen in ages! What sort of mind thinks up a marimite beat-em-up??

baik!

looks like most of the staples will be in there; i see graduation ceremony fan attack and rolling racoon attack!!!! lol :D

kinda hard to imagine these temperate-natured girls going at it, though. :p

Aw, that's so much fun, and so silly! I love the way they call one another's names when you switch. Is this in any way official? I MUST have the full version!

We should probably try to work out special attacks.

If z=light, x=heavy and c=switch, all I've managed so far have been the simple special attacks like D,F+heavy, D,B+heavy and the super-versions which are (for Yoshino and Yumi) D,F,D,F+heavy.

But I wanna turn Yumi into a panda! Anyone figured that one out yet?

Slow? Not to me. I'm using Freshdownload (a download accelerator), and it's coming in at 80kBytes/sec for me (perhaps it helps that I'm on ADSL at 768kbps, and I'm near Japan).

in the html files that come with the demo there's a move list for both yoshino and yumi.
there's 2 supers, d,f,d,f+Heavy and f,b,d,f+heavy

Does anyone know how to make this demo use a game controller like the MS Sidewinder Gamepad in the actual gameplay? The menu portion recognizes my controller, but when I start the game, the controller is no longer working and the game only responds to the keyboard.

I now have the full version of the game. (Was the 2nd person to buy a copy. Was waiting in the queue from midnight just for this. ^^;; ) I'll post a review later, once I've had a chance to properly play it.

Prelim Verdict:
Is it a fun little romp? Yes
Is it the next Melty Blood, Eternal Fighter Zero or Queen of Heart? No.

The game really suffers IMO from a lack of characters and a lack of depth. Having only 8 characters (Of which you'll be using 2 at any one time), and only two buttons for attack doesn't give you very many options to begin with, and the AI's not exactly the sharpest pencil in the box. It was probably worth my 2000 yen just to see them turn Sei into a Zangief character through the glomps though. ^^;;;

Now if only we'd been allowed to use some of the more minor characters from the series, outside the rose families, or the new 1st year students. The expansion for next comike perhaps?

I'm serious. She's a pure grapple character, and her main special attacks are direct rips from Zangief, right down to the 360 degree rotation to pull it off.

XD I hope she at least moves faster than Zangief.... Grapplers are nice, but those 360 moves....ugh... *goes back to playing Vice*

Archaic
2005-01-01, 08:02
She's got the shortest range jump of any character I've used so far, so I wouldn't say she's all that faster than Zangief sadly.

*Imagines Sei doing Zangiefs running grab (360 K)*
Whoa...
*dies from laughter*

Archaic
2005-01-01, 23:28
The running grab is easier to do than that, thankfully. It's the spinning clothesline that takes the full 360 move.

Archaic
2005-01-02, 06:23
The trend for ripping off characters from other fighting games continues almost wholesale through the rest of the character list. The below are just those I've identified for certain. King of Fighters characters, all of them.

Sachiko = Athena
Shimako = Mai
Eriko = Terry? Iori?
Youko = Whip?

Wow, this thread brings back some memories...

Which game exacty are you talking about? MariBato, the original game referenced in this thread, or the one referenced in the post above yours?

In any case though....they're both doujin games. You won't find them for sale in stores outside of a few secondhand otaku stores in Japan. The print runs were highly limited, so if you don't have a copy, your best chance is to find someone who does online, and get them to burn you an ISO.

Oooo Shizuka-sama and Shiori is whipping Shimako and Noriko! I'd so love to get my hands on MariBato. Last time I tried this stuff was... Queen of Hearts (wow, how long ago is that?).

Google Image search (http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=%E3%83%9E%E3%83%AA%E3%81%B0%E3%81%A8&btnG=Search+Images&gbv=2) gives some pretty interesting screenies:-)

2007-03-29, 05:37
I've been playing it a bit, too, but it tends to freeze often so I didn't play that much. I've tried to add touko but it didn't work, of course, I'd love to have Shiori and Shizuka! (i like shizuka a lot!) Is there a trick to add the characters ?
(whoever did the game really made it well, the characters are well done and their attacks brilliant!)

Though I don't know whether this is illegal, strictly, but I believe the ordinary copyright NOT exists in this case. because after all, maribato is doujin thing. (basically, doujin has no copyrights) and official site is already down. this means the fact nobody can buy it already. so I think this should belong to marimite fans...
a bit persistent? well... :eyebrow:

I argue ostensibly this is not my file. :D

so anyway, don't blame me by above reason.

Sometimes, I amaze myself over how computer illiterate I can be.



This is fun.

I found a way to do 100% life combo with any 2 characters outside of anyone too slow (Rei, Sei, Kanako, Shimako, Shiori). Turns out, each character has about 3600 hp.

Without the infinite combo, I've gotten 2100 by pairing two supers together and a small combo. With one super, I've hit 1700 with a small combos. With no supers, I've hit 1200.
(edit: Make that 2500 with 2 supers and 2200 with 1 super. Yeah, I'm really bored.)

This game's better made then I expected.

Max number of hits you can get it around 217 since your opponent dies from that.

Btw, going by strength, Rei > Sei > Kanako > Shimako > Shiori > Sachiko> Noriko > Eriko > Shizuka > Yumi = Yoko > Touko > Yoshino. I did this by doing a 3 different 2-hit combo(standing light, crouching light and standing heavy) and recording the damage and averaged it up. Not a 100% perfect test, but meh.

Strongest super is Rei's "Reduction Area"(hello google translator) if it hits 2 times which only happens in the corner right next to the opponent for 1015. Otherwise, Eriko's ... "凸は出ているかしら?" ...whatever that is, hits for 830. I THINK Yumi's "peroperokiyandei] murder case"(hello again, google) CAN hit 3 times for 1000+, not counting the two earlier potential hits. I was combining it with Rei's super, ended up with 5 hits and 2100 damage.

One last thing. If you didn't know, you can scroll through different color of your character from the character selection screen by pressing C.


Has anyone figured out how to pick two of the same character yet? The demos suggest that you can.
edit: only possible as player 2 in training mode

I've been noticing that the comp have been 'teleporting' out of my air combos disallowing me to finish with a special. Does anyone know how to do this?
edit: Apparently, by pressing either buttons while receiving an attack in the air.

Does anyone know how to trigger more special battle openings? Only one I know is if you have Sachiko as lead and Yumi as backup.

Also, can it be changed so that you fight both characters til they're both down? So far, the only way to do this is to defeat one as they change out.

Btw, Sachiko is a monster. I beat the entire game with just her by herself and rarely did she ever lose half her life.


More fun info.

All of the original characters can only air dash and land, besides Sei, who can't air dash at all. The newer characters can cancel their air dash into an additional jump.

Touko has the best air dash. It seems to be the fastest and she seems to beable to dash as many times as she wants as long as she's still in the air. I've pulled off 15 air dashes without touching the ground.

Kanako can follow her first air dash into the additional jump IF the initial dash is backwards.

Shiori can follow her first air dash into the additional jump no matter what way her initial dash was. She can perform an additional air dash as long as her initial air dash is backwards.

Shizuka's additional jump is harder to pull off and tricker to time, but it's possible. Again, only if the initial jump is backwards. Additionally, she is not able to perform an additional air dash after the additional jump.

Oddly enough, Rei's ground dash backward is the fastest dash in the game .

Everyone has a max of 2 vertical jumps.

Hey, I ran that "Maribato" file, and followed the instructions to the letter. I mounted the image, installed it without checking the first box, because that seems to just install audio files and such with no executable file, then installed the character add-on disc, then copied and pasted the patch into the main directory. When I run my windows system in english the game crashes after the first character of the title appears on the menu. Running my system in Japanese mode seems to make it work a little better, but whenever I get to the character select screen (which shows all the characters it' supposed to) it still crashes. I've tried everything, can anyone walk me through step by step on how to install it; perhaps I missed something?

Archaic
2007-06-18, 21:51
Before I try downloading that, can anyone tell me exactly what's in it? I've already got original discs for MariBato and MariBato+, as well as copies of some of the patches (think the latest I have is 302), but was there anything which came out after that?

I used to have kind of the same problem, and I stopped trying...then I got the version revive4563 posted and it was ok, have you tried it?


revive4563 >> That's awesome, I'll dl it, these command list are great, thanks a bunch !

edit :
So far, I've only been able to play with version 1 and 2 but when I install the 3rd to have more characters, the game doesn't function (game crashes as soon as it starts)
Per chance, you wouldn't know what could be the cause ?


edit 2:
Yes, we've installed the patch too, we tried also without the patch, the result is the same wether or not it is applied

We figured out that some sound file must be missing, and so if we validate the screen title BEFORE the RI of Maribato appears, we can get the menu and configure etc... but the game still crashes once we're at the character selection menu

hmm....were ver3.02 patches applied? if it is so, sorry but, I have no idea... at least as for me, it works without any problem on XP(SP2).
After all, this is doujin thing so it might be extremely Japanese Windows domestic... though there might be some solutions.

Hello, I know this is pretty old thread. But I just dled maribato from the link. And after a litle work found out how to fix the problem! There are two files missing that are deleted when you install version 3.0 so all you have to do is find them and put them back. I don't remember which ones though. I just copied version 1.3 or whatever it is then said no to all the write over file stuff. Then the game will work with the newest characters!
