Hip hip Hooray! Brawl Minus 4.2's release is one day away! So, what is the answer to all your problems? Read this changelog to find out! CHANGELOG Spoiler: Changelog Spoiler: Global/Codes Strap Screen and game intro no longer specifies which version you are playing. This information can still be found on the title screen and on the description of VS. Mode Updated Minus Artwork for R.O.B., Wario, Olimar, and the Fighting Alloy Team (Artwork by Pin Clock) All characters invulnerability during ledge attacks goes away the frame the attack comes out instead of the frame before. In Minus many characters such as Wario have attacks that easily cover the ledge and ledge attacks would lose to them. Now they will at least trade or clank. Event Matches #4: Cleaning House in Skyworld Is now Pit vs Dark Pit, and clearable #24: The Aura is With Me Lucario now has 999% damage on all difficulties Spoiler: Characters Spoiler: Falcon ALRIGHT FIRST PLACE no longer plays when he wins BOOST POWER Charge now works by holding B instead of mashing B Letting go of B at any point during the charge means a failed charge Total Charge time reduced Spoiler: King Dedede Spotdodge now comes out Frame 4 Grabs Standing grab now has no I-Frames Dash grab's grabbox is moved from frame 7 > 9 and is now active for 3 frames instade of 10 Pivot Grab now has no I-Frames and comes out Frame 6 rather than 4 and is out for 4 Frames instead of 6 Spoiler: Diddy Kong Dash Attack Only cancels on hit Fair KBG on all hits reduced from 122 > 100 Sweetspot on foot BKB 30 > 40 Sourspot removed Fthrow KBG decreased from 100 > 90 Usmash KBG 70 > 85 Fsmash Shield cancel changed to grab cancel Trajectory on all hits standardized to 40 Banana Pull Grounded FSM 2x > 3x Air FSM 3x > 2x Being able to move and pull bananas should not be as fast as standing still and pulling bananas. Spoiler: DK Meteor Cancel moved to Frame 25 Special Fall Removed all hitboxes Giant Punch Charges faster on ground rather than air Shoulder hitbox of Punch is now a sour spot KBG 80 > 50 but hitbox was increased to balance it out 3 > 4 Increased dash cancel frames 1 > 3 Spoiler: Falco Is once again Force Choked after losing a match Foes are no longer worth the trouble Spoiler: Fox uAir COME ON! Again! Spoiler: Ganondorf Bair Hitbox comes out 1 frame earlier to match the animation Landing lag reduced from 22 > 11 Gerudo Dragon New GFX added Gandouken Added invincibility on 2 frames to allow Ganondorf not to be grabbed with the Super Scope in his hand Spoiler: Ike Side Taunt Once again changes voice clip based on Eruption Charge Fair Auto cancels frame 27 Dash Attack Is now a Multi-hit Eruption Ike once again declares that his foes won't get any sympathy from him on full charge Quick Draw Now retains momentum on hit Removed attack cancels 5x FSM added to endlag Auto-cancels upon landing during the attack portion Spoiler: Bowser SideB Damage: 8>10 Kbg 0>50 Spoiler: Link Bombs are now Combo Bombs Spoiler: Lucario DownB Lucario learned Focus Energy! Pressing and holding down-b, Lucario will calm himself and focus his aura. This boosts his power to 1.2x default, making his moves hit harder and do more damage. In addition, some of his moves evolve into completely new versions. Naturally, executing these moves will break his concentration and he will need to Focus Energy again in order to use them. SideB: Hold B when using this move with Aura to use Close Combat, a much stronger command grab that uses up his Aura abilities! Up-b: When Lucario is boosted by Focus Energy, Lucario can use his power speed to use Extreme Speed a second time when started from the ground. This does not deplete his Focus Energy charge, so keeping double extreme speed is up to you not using the other moves to deplete it. Down-b: When Lucario doesn't have Focus Energy stored, this move is how to initiate the charging process. When lucario does have a Focus Energy charge, this move because Double Team; an instantaneous kick from either direction that the player can choose. This move has the potential to kill at higher percents, and can be used to get Lucario out of tricky situations. Careful though, as with these power comes the cost of expending Lucario's stored aura; Meaning in order to use it or your other boosted abilites, you will need to recharge. Spoiler: Luigi F-Air Moved hitbox active frames one frame back (8-11, from 9-12) to match animation Spoiler: Mario Nair KBG on sweetspot: 100 > 80 fAir GFX on arm improved Fireball Now only throws 2 fireballs on the ground instead of the air Aerial Fireball only puts out one fireball Run cancel added after the second fireball comes out Mario having this ability in the air made for a way too powerful offensive pressure, which became even more powerful with 4.0b's increased gravity. Now Mario still has good pressure, as well as a safe Fireball on the ground, but has to choose between his fireball options in the ground and air. Spoiler: Marth Dancing Blade Marth will no longer shout LESS DANS. Did you know Marth has had the same voice since the Fire Emblem OVA in the early 90s, and his clips have been reused since Melee?
