 i. Notes From Zero
	If you use any of this information anywhere else, please give 
	me credit. Also, it would be good if you could send me a link 
	to your site/faq, and I will include a link to your site/faq.
	The rumor about a press release by Tecmo about secrects was shot down. 
	A Tecmo operator (I believe that is her title) named Michelle has broke the news 
	that they are waiting for Tecmo of Japanto release codes/tricks/secrets to them.
	This tells us that either Tecmo U.S. had no part in the programming, and most 
	likely only the translation and the distrobution. We will just have to wait and see
	Sorry for the many errors in the last version. This version removed many of these 
	errors. THanks for all those who submitted information. The credits are located at 
	the end of this document.
	Do not buy Prima's Guide To DOA2 if you are looking for secrets, because
	it has none!

	The Rumors and talk of Kasumi's "Bunny Suit" have not been backed or
	been confirmed at all, so I am pretty sure this code is pure rumor.

	Due to the multiple e-mails about the bounce trick, I have removed it from this FAQ,
	so you can all stop arguing(to me) whether it works or not.
	I will be releasing complete F.A.Q. for Kasumi, so look for that soon. You should check 
	out the "K Files" in section iii for some neat stuff about Kasumi. 

	Please E-Mail and Instant Message The New Screen Name,
	Do Not E-Mail and Instant Message, for it will be no 
	longer used for this FAQ.

	That's all for this update, see you next time.


	If You Would Like To Submit Anything, To This F.A.Q., Please E-Mail Me 
	With The Subject Of "FAQ Submit"

 1. Alternate Costumes

	To select your characters alternate costume, just press up/down (Depending 
	on which row your character is on) and then select your character normally.
	Note: The "School Girl Outfit" code reported by IGN is NOT NEEDED. To select 
	the school girl outfits, choose the 3rd outfit for Ayane and the 4th outfit for Kasumi.

	FAQ, Please Give Me Credit.

 2. Secret Characters

	The Known Characters Are Tengu, The Game's Boss. It Is Currently Unknown
	On How To Get This Character Enabled. 

	Note: Roland is the "True Love"of Leon in his story mode. This is the reason for the 
	inclusion of the name Roland in the credits. I think that Tecmo would have been more 
	carefull enough to hide the names of any secret characters which are not enabled.  

3. Total Run Time Trick

	If You Leave The Game System On At The Option Screen, The Total Run Time 
	Will Keep On Growing. Having The Time At A Certain Number/Length May Unlock 
	New Secrets. 

4. Female Art

	Pop you DOA2 Dreamcast game into your computer and open the "Bonus" folder. 
	The following files are inside:
	 <<Name>>    <<Description>>
	Ayane1.bmp   (Ayane Standing)
	Ayane2.bmp   (Ayane Sitting) 
	Helena.bmp    (Helena Standing Near A Window) 
	Kasumi1.bmp (Kasumi Laying Down) 
	Kasumi2.bmp (Kasumi Laying Down On Her Back) 
	Leifang1.bmp  (Leifang Standing) 
	Leifang2.bmp  (Leifang Standing, Arms Back) 
	Tina.bmp        (The Awesone Tina Armstrong Poster, As Seen In The Game, It's Great!)  

5. Hidden FMV

	To view the hidden FMV, you must be first playing as Ayane in story mode, and when you 
	get to the battle against Kasumi you must K.O. her in the ice pit, and she must land approx 
	10ft away from you. If you do this correctly, you will then watch the fireball FMV from the 
	intro movie. We can only hope there are more secrets like this in the game.

6. Black Kasumi 3rd Costume

	To see this alternate colored suit, just start the story mode with Kasumi wearing her 3rd 
	costume. When you get to the pre-battle FMV with the Kasumi clone and the actual battle, 
	she will be wearing a black version of the 3rd costume. It is not known how to select this 
	costume for actual play.

7. Rumor Mill/Frequently Asked Secret Questions
	Note: These are rumors, and other puzzling questions! They may or may not be true. For some of 
	the things that have been proven false, visit the Dead Tricks section below this one. Please don't 
	e-mail me rumors! I only take them from random sources on the net like message boards, and from 
	certain questions about a specific subject.
	>>Bikini Outfits<<
	(About) An Alternate Costume For Kasumi That Is A "Bunny Suit". 
	(Zero's Take) Very Possable. Tecmo Created Those Promotional Bikini Photos With The Characters 
	3D Models, So Why Not Have Them Selectable? Not Much Movement Needs To Be Programed Into 
	A 2 Piece Bikini :)
	>>Tengu And Roland<<
	(About) Secret Playable Characters, Tengu The Gemas Boss, And Roland, Leon's True Love.
	(Zero's Take) I Can Understand Tengu, But Roland Is A Long Shot. But Since Their Models 
	Are In The Game, Why Not Have Them Selectable.
	>>Tina's Runway Outfit<<
	(About) The Outfit Worn By Tina After Beating The Story Mode With Her.
	(Zero's Take) It's In There, So They Should Be Able To Use It In Battle. It Is More Complex Than
	A Standard Costume, But Not Too Complex. 

	>>Helena's Opera Dress + Her Mother's Character<<
	(About) The Outfit Worn By Helena In The Story Mode, And Her Mother, Who Appears In That Scene.
	(Zero's Take) This Opera Dress WOuld Be Quite Complex To Program In With Realistic Movements, 
	And Doesn't Seem Fit For Fighting. Although It Would Be Cool To Defeat Your Friends With A 70 
	Year-Old Lady, I Think The Programmers Left That One Out.  

	>>8yr Old Tina + Bass 3rd Outfit<<
	(About) The Young Tina Seen In Bass' Story Mode, And His Outfit That He Is Wearing In That Scene.
	(Zero's Take) I Would Love To Defeat All Of My Friends With An 8 Year Old Girl, And Bass' Threads In 
	That Scene Are Much Better Than The Cowboy Outfit(In My Mind). I Can Only Hope They Programmed 
	That In. Or Imagine A 2 People Character? Bass Could Throw Young Tina At Your Opponent, And......
	Oh Nevermind.

	>>Kasumi's Ending (Complete)<<
	(About) The Full Ending Ment To Be Seen At The End Of Story Mode.
	(Zero's Take) Seeing How She Is My Favorite Character, I Was Sure Dissapointed With Her Ending. Once 
	I Saw The After Credits FMV, I Instantly Sarted Thinking Of Ideas Behind Why The Ending Was Like That, 
	And How Might Another Ending Be Unlocked? The Fireball FMV Only Got MNe Going Even More.

8. Dead Tricks

	* Beating The Game On Very Hard Mode With The Total Run Time Equal To Or Greater Than 30hrs And Never
	 Loose A Match And You Will Unlock New Costumes.
	(Many People Have Wasted Their Time On This And Have Succeeded And Gotten Nothing. Originally 
	Posted By A Person At Message Board As A Joke)
	* Setting The Age To The Reversed Age Of Your Character And Beating The Story Mode Without 
	Continuing Will Unlock New Costumes.
	(Simple Proof - Ayane + Kasumi's Ages Are N/A, So There Are No Way To Reverse Them. Helena Is 21(12) 
	And Jann Lee Is 20(02). The Lowest The Age Setting Goes Is 12. You Could Not Enter These Character's 
	Ages Backwards)

	* Beating Tag Mode With All Possable Character Combinations Will Unlock New Costumes.
	(After Doing This, No Hidden Costumes Are Enabled. I Have Personally Wasted My Time On This One)

9. Odd Sightings

	In The Spiral Level, The TV Screen Shows Pictures Of The Original Intro From The First DOA.

	In The Demon Church Level, No Matter Which Window Someone Is Knocked Out Of, You 
	Allways Land In The Same Place. 

	Bass Is "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan, No Doubt About It.

	The Rope Blocking You From Walking Down The Mountain Has Small "Ofudos" Attached To It, Which 
	Japanese Holy Men Used To Fend Of Evil Spirits, Thus This Would Contain Tengu In That Stage. This  
	Asks The Question How Does He Appear In The Demon Church In Ein's Story Mode? This May Be A 
	The Opera House And The Spiral go on FOREVER!
