1/7/2013: CenturyBlade here, popping in only SLIGHTLY fashionably late for ACS Wikia's 2nd birthday party. I'll be honest, when I first started this thing, I didn't think for a second there that it would turn into this. So many people have poured so much time and effort into this project that I started more or less as a "Why doesn't this already exist?" kind of thought. I really expected somebody to show up and call me a noob because something like this already exists. Little did I know I gave this already dying game a boost harder than ever in the Western community. Now that ACS3D has been released, the whole goddamn thing is going to start over again, and I couldn't be more ecstatic about it. I'm sure somewhere on this thing lies a post that I made regarding what I'd do if and when the next ACS came out, and I'm pretty sure I said back then that I'd most likely create an entirely new Wikia and just kinda let this one meet its inevitable death. However, I see that it's only been a week since the release (thanks NO-ONE BTW FOR LETTING ME KNOW ABOUT THE RELEASE :( ) and you all have put in so much work already that I can't really upturn it now. So we'll keep it like this. Great work everyone, and once again I can't thank you enough for keeping my project alive. Without you, ACS Wikia would've died long, long ago. I still don't believe it's been 2 years since this thing's inception.

P.S. I also cleaned up this page a bit.  Just some discussions from way too long ago, pretty much.

1/1/2013: ACS 3D has just been released.  We need to sort out what pages needs to be updated and stuff so please put all your ideas and suggestions here for now. Thanks!

Minarie (talk) 15:13, January 1, 2013 (UTC)

8/2/2011: I would like to ask all major contributions to be updated in their respective progress tables below so that we can easily track what needs to be done and what is already finished. If you want to contribute ideas to ACS Wiki or if you have any questions about the game, please post it on the Forum in the Community Tab. Thanks!

  1. CenturyBlade: Creator/Founder of ACS Wikia. (A.K.A. Ninja Boss).
  2. DivineKratos: Publisher of Arte Exhibition video material used throughout the Wikia.
  3. LGameTales: I have the intelligence on in-game artes and character functions. If you have a question regarding such, I'll be sure to answer it for you.

ACS Wikia Policies[]

There are only two policies so far and it's very simple actually:

  • Be kind to your fellow users: The english ACS community is really small but a nice bunch of people. I don't think there will be any problem here.
  • ACS Hacking discussions: As Anibache requested, there will be no discussions in this Wikia on how to hack ACS. All posts about hacking will be deleted by the admins immediately.

ACS 3D[]

Main ACS 3D Page[]

Installation Guide[]

Beginner's Guide/Menu Translation[]

Playable Character Pages[]

Command/Arte Lists[]

Skill Lists[]



Playable Characters[]

Please document here, in the progress table, what kind of information a playable character page currently needs. A character page is rarely ever "complete", because somebody always winds up finding something new, however, there is a difference between a page that hasn't even been started yet and a page that has information on everything besides the Super Mega Ultra Chaos Mode and that character's most overpowering or infinite combo. Please document those differences here.

With that said, currently, if a character has their full Command List, Intro, Facts, General Tips & Usage, Arte Breakdown, Combos, and Story Mode information posted, it will be marked "Complete". The Battle Strategy section is only optional, you may place information there if you want but it will not be part of the progress table. Please use the Shing Meteoryte page or any other page in the progress table with the note "Standardized" as a guide in making playable character pages.

NOTES ON COMBOS: When adding combos to Character Pages, you should also add Combo Particles/Segments. These are small 1-3 arte combos what can be used in certain situations (these are much more useful then long combos). For example, Combo Resets or OVL resets (in this case they would be comboing out of an OVL not on the wall).

Cameo Support Characters[]

Please document here, in the progress table, what kind of information a cameo support character page currently has and needs. Normally, a cameo support character page will be marked complete if they have and Intro, Photo and an Arte Breakdown w/Commands. Please use the Cless Alvein page or any other page in the progress table with the note "Standardized" as a guide in making cameo support character pages.

Minarie 08:06, August 2, 2011 (UTC)

I would like to ask that somebody change all of the Cameo Character's names from the English ones to the Japanese ones, to complement the fact that we (and by we, I mean Anibache) are using Japanese names for the Playable Characters.

Secret Bosses[]

Please document here, in the progress table, what kind of information a secret boss character page currently has and needs. The Wikia has yet to decide on a format for secret boss characters. Please feel free to edit it as much as you want, format suggestions are highly appreciated.

Are we also listing each Boss character's artes? So far, all the "Strategy" categories are unfinished, and Neried seems to have a "Moves" subcategory under "Al Facts". Which one would be more appropriate if I were to start working on Alexei?

LGT (talk) 11:45, August 5, 2011 (PST)

Sorry I haven't been paying much attention to the secret characters page, I'm still pretty busy with standardizing playable character pages (Currently practicing/studying Sophie to improve her page). We should first finish at least one secret boss page as a standardized format. Here are some of my ideas on what we should put (in this order) you may remove some if you think it's too much trouble:

  • Intro (Bio)
  • Character Facts (Replaces AI Facts and Fallacies)
  • Artes Breakdown
  • AI Behavior and Combos
    • Short Range
      • Ground
        • Attack Pattern 1 etc.
      • Aerial
        • Attack Pattern 1 etc.
    • Mid Range
    • Long Range
    • Others Behaviors (May be removed if none exists)
  • Strategy
  • Appearance in ACS (Similar to a story mode section)

Minarie 20:30, August 5, 2011 (UTC)

Seems fine, though, what would be the difference between "AI Behaviors / Combos" and "Strategy"?

LGT (talk) 18:35, August 5, 2011 (PST)

AI Behaviors / Combos would contain the information on the AI's attack patterns, how and when they execute them. It's more on enumeration of what the AI can do.

Strategy should contain information on which AI Behavior/s should the player exploit/watch out for in fighting to defeat the Secret Boss. It should also contain tips on how certain AI behavior should be treated or countered.

Here's are some examples:

In the AI Behaviors Section:

  • When a player is in mid-range from Dhaos, and the player is also in mid-air at the same time, the attacks/actions/combos Dhaos will use are usually Explode or Ray both with equal chance of occuring.
  • Dhaos unleashes his Overlimit Lv1 when the player is in mid to close range (both on the ground) from him or when he is being pressured with multi-hit attacks in close range. He will have Unmarked Penetrate status until his Overlimit expires.

In the Strategy Section:

  • Ray/Explode AI pattern should be exploited by always jumping while trying to approach Dhaos. Have him use Ray or Explode, block and then counter attack.
  • If Dhaos releases his Overlimit:
    • Get away from him as much as possible. Stay in long range from him and then jump in mid-air and stay afloat using artes. Dhaos will always just stay put when you do this. Wait for his Overlimit to expire then approach his mid-range and exploit his Ray/Explode AI pattern once more.
    • Use a mystic arte with a long animation to empty his OVL Gauge.

I hope i was clear with my examples, don't hesitate to ask me questions if something is still unclear.
