SC3 cheats & secrets

Although it is fun using the standard characters, some people like using custom-made characters. This is why SC3 includes the new mode "Custom Character Creation", or Create-A-Soul.

So, what is Create-A-Soul? Well, it allows you to create a very, very customizable character. Everything from  clothes and armor down to the color of their eyes and lips is customizable. Your character will have a personality, voice, fighting style, and you get to choose it all.

character occupations
After you choose male of female, You choose a job for your character.
The character you create will have an occupation, which is basically their role in the game. Each occupation determines the fighting styles and weapons your character can choose, so choose the style you like best.
These are the jobs:

Your character's personality isn't determined by a set of preset personalities, but rather by what he or she wears. The more grim and evil-looking the outfit, the more evil-oriented the person will be. Likewise, the more bright and happy the outfit, the more good-oriented the person will be.
In Create-A-Soul, you will notice two meters under the character's photo. These are important. The top meter is the Good-Evil Meter, while the bottom is the Light-Dark Meter. Certain outfits will push the meters towards one end of the meter. The top meter will determine if your person is good or evil. If the meter is pushed more into the blue, your person is a good guy. If it's more into the red, the character's evil. If it's about in the middle, the character is neutral.
The bottom meter determines personality. If it's in the blue, the person is bright, cheery, and sorta preppy (eewwww). However, if it's in the red, the person is dark, mean, and often seems Gothic or emo (except for the part about cutting themselves and whining while the do it. F*cking whiners) If it's in the middle, the character has a normal personality. You can have the top meter in the blue, and have the bottom in red. This will make them good but with a dark personality, and vice versa. Try different outfits for different combinations.

    Standard Character Color Edit
    This isn't part of Create-A-Soul, but you can customize the colors of characters such as Nightmare and Mitsurugi. When choosing a character, pressing L1 or R1 (or was it L2 or R2?) will change their costume. When you edit the character's color, hit the button until you get to a costume that says "Color Edit". This is the character's new, custom colored outfit. It's definitley a good way to change Xianghua's crappy *shudders* PINK outfit.

    There are only two flaws to this mode: voices and body build. There are only four voice options for each gender, so custom characters and most of the special characters sound the same. Also, it doesn't have a body build option. So characters will all look the same. (aww, no character with a Mariah Carey body......) Hopefully, this will be fixed in SC3 Arcade Edition or the possible Soul Calibur 4.
