========================================================================
1.                          INTRODUCTION
========================================================================

 Well, everyone pretty much knows about Shen Mue. It's probably the 
biggest game in the Dreamcast's short history. Developed by the legendary 
AM2 and Yu Suzuki, it's a game that's in a genre all it's own. F.R.E.E.
Full Reactive Eyes Entertainment...no, I don't know what it means either^_^ 
Regardless, Shen Mue is unquestionably one of, if not THE most beautiful 
game(s) ever created. I don't just mean the graphics either, the entire 
Shen Mue experience is a beautiful thing.

 The story follows Ryo as he searches for the Chinese Mobster Souryu who 
killed his dad over an ancient artifact. Ryo must find out what the deal 
with the mirror is and why his father was killed over it, and also seek 
revenge against Soryu. Chapter 1: Yokosuka sets up this premise, but with 
plenty of Chapters to come, you don't solve everything in this game. Still, 
Shen Mue has a chance to be a huge franchise for Sega(or CRI^_~). 

 I've written this FAQ to help people in playing the game, but please note 
that this Guide is very basic and only details events that will move the 
story along. You may want to spend a few days just messing around and 
checking out the game. There's nothing wrong with that^_^ Shen Mue is very 
detailed and there's alot to do. Please note that alot of the game is time-
oriented though so you may miss a character or they'll be in a different 
spot than I list if you spend time doing other stuff.  Above all else 
though, have fun! I know I sound like a broken record, but this game is 
meant to be experienced, not just played through. Don't race to get through 
the game the first time you play it as you'll miss out on alot of the beauty 
and work that went into creating this masterpiece.

NOTE: I removed most of the explanations for the extra stuff(cat, tomato 
mart) from this document because I'm going to make a seperate FAQ for them, 
this FAQ will include info about the 4th Pass Port disc as well. I did this 
to save time and space in this document, since I'm writing it in SimpleText 
I have a limited amount of space.
 
==========================================================================
2.                              CONTROLS
==========================================================================

The controls for Shen Mue are pretty easy to come to grips with. I've 
listed seperate controls for the different gaming modes:

Exploration(Main mode):

D Pad-Move Ryo around. Up makes him move forward, left/right make him turn 
in 45' increments in that direction, and down makes him do a 180' and face 
the other way

Analog Stick-Move Ryo's head. Let's you look around without actually moving.

A Button-Action button. Talk to people, open doors, pick up objects, etc.

B Button-Cancel button, put down objects, skip conversations, etc.

X Button-Memo Pad. Brings up the Memo pad to look at the clues you've 
gathered

Y Button-Brings up System Window, kinda like in the old RPGs

L Trigger-Move/Run button. Hold L to walk forward instead of having to hold 
Up on the D Pad. When possible Ryo will jog/run depending on how hard you 
hold the button down

R Trigger-Zoom In/Lock On. Hold R to change to a first person view and see 
what Ryo sees, if an object can be picked up or examined the view will Lock 
On to that object, hit A to pick it up and the D Pad to look at it(if 
possible).



Free Battle:

D Pad-Move Ryo, used with buttons for moves
Analog Stick-Not used
A Button-Kick, use with D Pad and X for more moves
B Button-Throw,use with D Pad for more throws
X Button-Punch,use with D Pad and A for more moves
Y Button-Dodge,use with D Pad to dodge in different directions
        -Also works as the "reversal" button for most moves
L Trigger-Run, use with X and A for moves
R Trigger-Performed assigned move(see menu descriptions)



Quick Time Event(QTE):

Tap the appropriate direction/button when prompted on screen

========================================================================
3.                         MENU DESCRIPTIONS
========================================================================

 Many people have been asking for a section that explains the various menus
in Shenmue. Well, here ya go^_^ The Main Menu is the one you see when you 
first turn on the game, the System Window is the window that displays your
inventory and stuff during the Exploration periods of the game(hit Y), and 
the End of Day menu is what you see every night in Ryo's bedroom.

4.                          DISC 1 WALK THRU
========================================================================

 Note: These are the steps that will advance the story, if you follow them 
to a T you'll breeze through the first disc in a few game days, BUT you'll 
miss out on a lot of Shen Mue's charm and the beautiful worlds that AM2 and 
Yu Suzuki have created. My advice is to revel in the game a bit,play some 
arcade games, and slots, and stuff. Just walk around for awhile and pick 
stuff up before you go zipping through the story.

Also note that there are plenty of items and such to find, but I haven't 
included them yet. This is a bare bones FAQ for now but more will be added 
as I play, and get help from you friendly folks^_^

Onward!

 *-END OF DISC 1-*

=======================================================================
b.                        DISC 2 WALK THRU
=======================================================================

Disc 2 is longer and tougher than Disc 1 but it also has some of the 
coolest moments in the game. You'll be left with some free time more 
often than in Disc 1 so if you've been neglecting to enjoy some of the 
extras in this game, you'll get a few chances on this Disc.

Note that I don't list the break-up of days since it doesn't really matter, 
just do what you can in a day and then start where you left off during the 
next. And remember, enjoy yourself!
=============

-Cutscene of Warehouse Area

-Enter Warehouse District to the left

-Cutscene with thugs roughing up some guy, QTE with the thugs

 past the fishing guy

 8 is on the left at the end

-This part is quickly becoming known as the "Metal Gear Solid" portion of 
the game, you have to sneak your way past the cops to the other Warehouse 8, 
if you get caught you lose a day and if you mess up too many times a 
homeless guy will give you a map. You won't need it if you follow my 
instructions though^_^
 
-When the cop closest to you turns his back, run to the right and duck in 
 the small area with the "10" door

when he shows up move away from the edge because he gets REALLY close. I 
usually run to the corner of the crates and wall and wait until his 
footsteps start fading away

 on the left

**--END OF DISC 2--**

=========================================================================
c.                           DISC 3 WALK THRU
=========================================================================

Disc 3 is without a doubt my favorite, there's just so much you do and the 
scenes are really dramatic and cool. Disc 3 has a nice blend of action and 
story, and you get a job! What an easy job too, I'd take it any day.
Also of coolness, the Forklift races each morning are a blast, and you get 
a prize from Mark(you'll meet him)depending on how you do. Let's not forget 
the 70 man battle, sheer and utter amazment is all I can say!

Note: Once you start working the game gets into a sort of pattern: work, 
story, work for awhile. Unless noted, once the work is over and the Walk 
Thru starts the next line with "Next Day" that means that nothing eventful
happens between the last step and the next day. You can do whatever you want 
with this time.

Enough Talk!
======================

Mine happened around 2:30

the rest of today to do whatever

District today because you're going to need to know it for the majority of 
this Disc. I give some directions, but they aren't that detailed

-Return home when ready, dream sequence that night with Shenhua again

-Next Day, side note: If you've taken care of the cat throughout the game it

-Quickie QTE to save Shou

-Now you and Shou fight together and take on 70 guys! This is one of the 
 best parts of the game, you can make your way to the left then right. Feel 
 free to abuse the running jump kick(L then A) to take out as many guys as 
 quickly as possible. At certain points the action will pause when a 
 "sub-boss" makes his entrance in the fight.

-(The 70 Man battle will be discussed in further detail in the Extras FAQ)

-After everyone else is dealt with the Boss will come down with a couple 
 henchmen, you're on your own here
-Take out the underlings first
-This guy likes to grab up close, but usually his kicks are real slow so 
 you can deflect them then grab him for good damage. The Tornado Kick you 
 learned from Tomu is useful as well. I'll give more tips in the Extras FAQ

-QTE with Terry, then  cool scene of Shou beating him up and you getting 
 info from him

-Long scene of you leaving home, then Dobuita

-Learn a move from Chintaijin(back+X, then back+X, A)
  -Practice move with Shou

-Free Battle Chai

-Cutscene of Ryuusatsu

-QTE with Chai

**--Now watch the ultra cool Shen Mue ending--**

CONGRATULATIONS! YOU"VE JUST PLAYED THROUGH SHEN MUE: CHAPTER 1, YOKOSUKA!

Of course now that you've beaten the game you can go back and do all the 
things you neglected to do when you where racing through the game with this 
document^_^ Luckily I'm making an Extras FAQ just for that purpose!

7. ABOUT THE AUTHOR
========================================================================

  This is just one of a few FAQs I've written, all of which are 
available at GameFAQS. A few my FAQs are on various other websites
(usually with proper creditO_o) as well. I hope this or any of the other 
FAQs I've written help you in some way, or allow you to enjoy a game 
more than before, or maybe just get a good read out of it. 

  If you have any questions about this game, or any other I've 
written a FAQ for, feel free to drop me an E-Mail. BUT keep in 
mind a few things:

1. Please don't ask when the next revision will be out, or if I 
can send it to you, or if I can help you with a part not covered in the
FAQ yet.  I don't really have a set schedule for these things, and you 
can pick up the FAQ(s) at GameFAQs. 

2. Please don't ask about something already covered in the FAQ. 
Usually once a FAQ comes out I'm swamped with E-Mails and skip 
ones that are covered in the FAQ. 

3. Don't mail asking for codes, I don't have a Gameshark or keep 
track of cheat codes or anything.

  Other than that, I try to answer every single E-Mail I get and 
am usually pretty good at getting back to people quickly, but 
sometimes I lose letters in my computer or forget to keep them as 
new. If I don't answer in a week or so it's safe to say I won't
be getting back to you, sorry.

 Well? Sounds like it deals with Shen Mue, eh?^_^

Sega News Group: rec.games.video.sega
 As far as VG Newsgroups go it's the best, still subject to flames and 
stuff but not horrible like the Nintendo and Sony NGs.
