1. If you play X mode, does that mean the 80% diamond is gone and the diamond still only does 50% (but with the possibility of the 100% trick)? 2. I can find plenty of info on the multipliers for power gems, but not so much info on chains. Anyone have any math on this? (My main question involves how worth it it is to not directly explode a large power gem, but to instead put the crash gem on top of a normal gem of a diff color, and then explode that diff color instead, so the power gem gets exploded as the second part of the chain). 3. I play on the PS3 version, and there's wicked bad input lag. Is this fixed on the 360 version? 4. Are there any good sources for high-level videos? I've searched youtube and got some, but most of them seemed to be of the arcade verison. 5. Okay, 5 isn't really a small question, but Jobber, you gave some very nice explanations for how to fight against Ken and Ryu's pattern. How in the world do you fight against Akuma's pattern, though?
