Re:Discussion Rule Variants

* Senrigan (Clairvoyance): Each player can see the tile that he/she will draw on his/her next turn if nobody calls a pon/chi/kan. So if somebody does call, does it mean it is sometimes possible for one player to know some of the tiles in another player\'s hand? I believe so; if you count out the tu...

Re:Discussion Rule Variants

A couple I\'ve heard of that haven\'t been mentioned yet: * Wareme: Whoever is sitting behind the broken tile wall wins and loses double. * Doukasen: When someone wins a hand, whoever is sitting behind the tile wall the last tile was drawn from wins and loses double. * Open Riichi: Upon declaration ...

Re:Saki and Riichi?

Did I apply that correctly? And lastly, I can\'t find any definition of what the start/return are supposed to be in the ema riichi rulebook. Do most people use 25000/30000? Close, you added up the other three players\' scores incorrectly in the last step. (-11) + 3 + (-21) = -29. So C\'s final scor...

Re:Saki and Riichi?

There are 2 things I don\'t understand though: 1. Is there any particular reason for setting tiles sideways on your hand? 2. The tally they show after a complete game (the thing where saki manages to get +/-0 4 times in a row), how do you calculate this? 1. If you mean the tile set on top of the re...

Re:Cheaters on Jan Ryu Mon?

If you\'ll excuse the double post, I think I figured out what might be responsible for the trend of one player dominating at each table. A tip to would-be cheaters: If you\'re going to have two people colluding to discard tiles that the other wants to call, it might make it a little less obvious if ...

Re:Yakuman Club

What sort of special ability do you get? Well, Flandre\'s special ability is to dramatically increase your chance of drawing wind tiles (probably around 50%, maybe more) for the rest of the hand, as long as there are still wind tiles left in the wall. Not the most useful of the specials most of the...

Re:Yakuman Club

Not mine, but I found this video of a MJ4 replay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RY6zdBe4AwI Tsuuiisou + daisangen + suuankou tanki-machi. Triple yakuman by MJ rules (suuankou tanki-machi is only a single yakuman), would be a quadruple yakuman by Fight Club rules. I also pulled off a triple yakuman ...

Re:Another Ron2 Mystery

I haven\'t actually tried Ron2, but that\'s most likely your kyuu/dan rank. Kyuu ranks are usually written with Arabic numerals followed by the \"kyuu\" kanji, and dan ranks usually have the kanji for the number followed by the \"dan\" kanji. For a kyuu rank, the lesser the number, the higher the ra...

Re:Mahjong Fight Club ...... English Guide

As a minor note, the kanji on the \"agari\" button actually says \"hou\", as in Tenhou, Chiihou, and Renhou. From left to right, with kanji in parentheses when they differ from the smaller text above them: Chii / Pon / Kan / Agari (hou) / Tsugi e (tsugi) I\'d translate \"tsugi e\" as \"to next\", as...

Re:Mahjong Fight Club ...... English Guide

Here\'s my best attempt at the options screens. Also, I\'ll bold the default option. If I think it has unlockable options, I\'ll mark them with an asterisk. I\'ll list all the ones I have unlocked for them, but I don\'t know which ones are available initially, nor if I lack any. Page 1: (unknown kan...

Re:Points question

A yaku is a pattern or criteria which, if met, is worth han.
For example, toitoihou is a yaku, which is worth two han.

Re:Mahjong Fight Club ...... English Guide

Yeah I need to get hold of screenshots for the options/custom rules pages first. Then I\'ll add them and then we can get to work on them. I can translate the rules/options pages; I\'ve got my copy of MFC DS with me right now. Custom Rules: Note: I\'ll list options with the default first, then in or...

Re:Mahjong Fight Club ...... English Guide

In my game I seem to be affiliated with Suzaku at the moment. There aren´t any "missions" so far - I just get a purple "fight orb" each time I win a game, then when I have enough orbs I advance to the next Dan (rank). Yeah, MFC affiliates you with one of the Four Gods depending on your play style w...

Re:Mahjong Fight Club ...... English Guide

Asks you for the rules to play with (I dont know the options so I select first box) The first box is Fight Club Rules, which you select for a ranked game. The second box is for custom rules. If you select custom rules, the "confirm rules" box is replaced with a "rules settings" box, which takes you...

Re:Mahjong Video Games -

My copy of MFC PS3 came with an e-Amusement Pass card with a serial number and 2D barcode on the back. I figured it was for something like this. Actually, Konami\'s been doing that for console ports of their e-Amusement arcade games for a long time; they\'re usually not for coping your data over, b...
