I. Basic Stuff

I.1  What is this document?

     This document is an English language informational resource for the 
Dreamcast version of SoulCalibur, a 3D fighting game by Namco.
     In this document, I'll be covering codes, secrets, details, 
clarifications, and other such information which may be of interest to 
SoulCalibur fans.  This is a Secrets FAQ (side note: I'm using "faq" 
herein with its more colloquial definition of "document of organized 
information", rather than its more traditional definition, which implies 
organizational headings in the form of questions...), and not a moves list 
or strategy guide, btw, so I won't be including a complete moves/combo 
list, or detailed character strategies, or anything like that in this 
document...
     This document was written for the J version of SoulCalibur, but it 
seems likely that at least some of the information contained herein may 
apply to other versions of the game as well...
     SoulCalibur (DCast, J) basic info:
        1 Disc (T-1401M)
        1-2 Players
        Works with: Arcade stick, VMU (12 blocks), PuruPuru Pack, VGA Box,
                    DCast Modem.


I.2  What is SoulCalibur?

     SoulCalibur is a weapons-based 3D fighting game by Namco.  It's the 
sequel to SoulEdge, though a lot about the game system has changed.  The 
most significant difference (imho) is probably that the Critical Edge 
technique is gone, as is the weapon damage/disarm system.  Second to that 
(imho) is probably the introduction of the 8-Way Run system, and arenas of 
different shapes/sizes.
     Anyway, for more information about the game and the game system, you 
should probably consult something more along the lines of a moves/strategy 
FAQ than a Secrets FAQ... =)


I.3  Notation and stuff

     Unfortunately, it appears that the game manual actually refers to the 
buttons by their DCast controller designations (which can get quite 
confusing (and even counterproductive) for anyone with a custom button 
configuration)!  Just for the record, in this document (and probably 
outside of it as well), I shall be referring to the buttons by their game 
designations (G A B K).
     (Side note: The "Command Display" option in the Game Options section 
of the Options Menu is set to "Dreamcast" as its default (sigh); for the 
reasons touched upon above (as well as some others that haven't been), 
I *strongly* recommend that you change this option to "Arcade".  If you 
haven't done so already, do it now, before you forget.  *Now*!  ;) )

     Anyway... in order to stave off any potential confusion, here follow 
some of the standards of notation I'll be using in this document...

       G          Guard
       A          Horizontal attack
       B          Vertical attack
       K          Kick attack
       u/d/l/r    up, down, left, and right (respectively) on the
                    d-pad/stick
       +          at the same time as
       ,          then
       =          a quick "then" that links commands yielding a single
                    action
       /          or
       x(y)       press y while holding x
       dcA/dcB    the A and B (resp.) buttons on the DCast controller
       X/Y        the X and Y (resp.) buttons on the DCast controller
       L/R        the L and R (resp.) triggers on the DCast controller
       C/Z        the C and Z (resp.) buttons on the DCast arcade stick


------------------------
II. Characters and Stuff
------------------------

II.1  Hidden Characters

     There are nine hidden characters that can be released as playable.  
Once you have all nine, your character select screen should be arranged 
like this:

       Top Row:  Hwang, Yoshimitsu, Lizard Man, Siegfried, Rock,
                 Seung Mina, Cervantes, Edge Master, Inferno, (Random).
       Bottom Row:  Voldo, Ivy, Sophitia, Mitsurugi, Kilik, Xianghua,
                    Maxi, Nightmare, Taki, Astaroth.

     Here's how to release the hidden characters:

II.1.A  Hwang through Cervantes (7 characters)
------
     Each time Arcade Mode (any difficulty or settings; continues don't 
matter) is completed (i.e. beat Inferno (Stage 8)) with a character who 
has not previously completed Arcade Mode (you can check completion records 
in the Records section of Options Mode), either a new character or a new 
stage will be released.  Seven characters and three stages can be released 
in this manner, in the following order:
        Hwang (and Random select)
        Yoshimitsu
        Lizard Man
        New Stage (Water Vein (Yoshimitsu stage))
        Siegfried
        New Stage (City of Water (Siegfried stage))
        Rock
        New Stage (The Colosseum (Rock stage))
        Seung Mina
        Cervantes

II.1.B  Edge Master
------
     Once the game (Arcade Mode (any difficulty or settings; continues 
don't matter)) has been completed at least once with seventeen different 
characters (this can even include Inferno, if you've used the unlock 
resource download file (see Inferno section for more information) to 
release Inferno), Edge Master will become available as a playable 
character.
     Edge Master will *randomly* choose a fighting style at the beginning 
of each round, with the following exceptions:

       playing Edge Master:
          vs. CPU Kilik (Stage 7), Arcade Mode (or Time Attack Mode) game:
             In 1/1 round matches, player E.M. will always use Hwang's
             style.  In longer matches, player E.M. will use Hwang's style
             on the first round of every match after the first (i.e. if
             you've continued against Kilik (during the game in question)
             at least once).
          vs. CPU Inferno (Stage 8), Arcade Mode game: On the first round
             of the first match, player E.M. will use Nightmare's style.

       playing Kilik:
          vs. CPU Edge Master (Stage 7), Arcade Mode (or Time Attack Mode)
             game: In 1/1 round matches, CPU E.M. will always use Kilik's
             style.  In longer matches, CPU E.M. will use Kilik's style on
             the first round of every match after the first.

       Practice Mode:
          In Practice Mode, Edge Master will always use the same style as
          his opponent.

     Edge Master has the same moves as the character whose style he uses, 
with the following additions:
        Kilik style:
          (8-Way u/d) A,A,A
        Seung Mina style:
          (8-Way u/d) A,A,A
(note: In the game-internal moves lists, an E.M.-specific move will be 
listed in yellow (instead of white), marked with a yellow Pac-Man icon 
immediately preceding the move name, and will be found at the *end* of the 
list of the appropriate move type)

     Some random Edge Master notes:
      - It appears that Edge Master can use the style of any character
        (yes, including Cervantes) in the game except for Inferno.
      - It seems that Edge Master won't say anything to Kilik before their
        sub-boss battle, unless E.M. is using Hwang's style.
      - If player E.M. wins against Kilik (Stage 7), using Xianghua's
        style, he *won't* in fact get the SoulCalibur when Inferno
        appears.
      - If player E.M. wins against Inferno (Stage 8), using Maxi's style,
        he *won't* collapse during his win pose/quote.

II.1.C  Inferno
------
     After Edge Master has been released as a playable character (you 
don't necessarily have to have finished the game with him), finish Arcade 
Mode (any difficulty or settings; continues don't matter) with Xianghua, 
using her 3rd costume (metal model, and/or custom weapon select can be 
used, even... as long as they're being used with her 3rd costume, of 
course), and Inferno will become available as a playable character.  For 
details on obtaining Xianghua's 3rd costume, see the Mission Mode section 
of this document (short form, easiest method: earn 130 points and purchase 
pictures 002, 006, 015, and 039).
     The playable version of Inferno actually looks different from the 
Arcade Mode (and Time Attack Mode) CPU Inferno (possibly for hardware 
reasons; even with a single fiery-Inferno on-screen, it's possible 
(especially during replay, when you have control over the camera view) to 
get certain visual aberrations...), in that the playable version will have 
a solid body (though its weapon(s) will be on fire).  The P1 "outfit" is a 
reddish color, while the P2 "outfit" is bluish.  Hmmm... P2 Inferno has a 
neck, but P1 Inferno does not... ^^;
     Inferno will *randomly* choose a fighting style at the beginning of 
each round, with the following exceptions:

       playing Inferno:
          vs. CPU Nightmare (Stage 7), Arcade Mode (or Time Attack Mode)
             game:  In 1/1 round matches, player Inferno will always use
             Nightmare's style.  In longer matches, player Inferno will
             use Nightmare's style on the first round of every match after
             the first (i.e. if you've continued against Nightmare (during
             the game in question) at least once).
          vs. CPU Inferno (Stage 8), Arcade Mode game: On the first round
             of the first match, player Inferno will use Nightmare's
             style.

       playing any character:
          vs. CPU Inferno (Stage 8), Arcade Mode game: CPU Inferno will
             use Nightmare's style on the first round of every match.
          vs. CPU Inferno (Stage 8), Time Attack Mode game: CPU Inferno
             will use Nightmare's style on the first round of every match
             after the first.

       Practice Mode:
          In Practice Mode, Inferno will always use the same style as his
          opponent.

     Inferno has the same moves as the character whose style he uses, with 
the following additions:
          B=u
          K=u
          K=u,G
          K=u,B
          K=u,B,G
(note: In the game-internal moves lists, an Inferno-specific move will be 
listed in orange (instead of white), marked with an orange Pac-Man Ghost 
icon immediately preceding the move name, and will be found at the *end* 
of the list of the appropriate move type)

     Some random Inferno notes: 
      - It appears that Inferno can use the style of any character (yes,
        including Cervantes) in the game except for Edge Master.
      - I think the only place "fiery" Inferno is used is as the CPU
        opponent (Stage 8) in Arcade and Time Attack modes.  It looks like
        in all other places, the CPU Inferno will be the solid (playable)
        version.
      - If player Inferno wins against Nightmare (Stage 7), using
        Xianghua's style, he *won't* in fact get the SoulCalibur when CPU
        Inferno appears.
      - If player Inferno wins against CPU Inferno (Stage 8), using Maxi's
        style, he *won't* collapse during his win pose/quote.

     An alternate method of releasing Inferno as a playable character is 
simply to download the Inferno unlock resource file from the Download 
section of the SoulCalibur Dricas page, located at:
   http://calibur.dricas.ne.jp/calibur/
     (Note: This unlock resource file was designed for the J version of 
SoulCalibur; I don't know if it will work with any other version of the 
game.)
     The file will take 2 blocks on your VMU.  However, being that it's an 
"unlock resource" file, after you've used it to unlock Inferno (just load 
the game, with both your SoulCalibur save and the resource file on your 
VMU; if Inferno hasn't already been released, you should get the standard 
"Inferno is now playable" message right after the game loads), and have 
saved that unlocked status to your save file (just pass an auto-save 
point, or manually save your game), you won't need the resource file 
anymore, and can simply delete it.
     Note that some Japanese VMU file download processes *will* check to 
see what browser you're running, so if you get a "Forbidden" error on a 
download or download page, you may have to use the browser from a Japanese 
game (Dream Passport, DP2, DP3...), or, more specifically, the browser 
from that specific Japanese game (in this case, the J version of 
SoulCalibur).
     [side notes: If you need help configuring Dream Passport for your 
ISP, consult a Dream Passport FAQ.  If you need further assistance, e-mail 
the author of that FAQ.  Do not e-mail me with any such queries/requests, 
because in all likelihood, unless you're a close personal friend, I 
probably won't have the time to even respond to your e-mail, let alone 
actually help you out.  ^^; ]

     The Inferno unlock resource file will unlock *only* Inferno, so if 
you want to release any of the other characters, you'll have to do that in 
the standard way.  =)  btw, Inferno seems to choose his style *only* from 
the currently playable characters, so if you release Inferno (via the 
unlock resource) before all 17 main characters (i.e. everybody besides 
Edge Master and Inferno) have been released, Inferno will actually have a 
smaller repertoire of styles to choose from.  ^^;

II.1.D  On getting all the characters
------
     For anybody who wants to release all the characters quickly, here's 
what's probably the easiest way of releasing all the hidden characters, 
from initial play:
       1. Complete first mission (12.1) in Mission Mode (60 points).
       2. Finish Arcade Mode with 17 different characters, releasing Edge
          Master; since the first Mission Mode mission has been completed,
          each Arcade Mode completion will earn you 10 points, bringing
          your total up to 230.
       3. In the Art Gallery (Museum or Mission Mode), purchase pictures
          002, 006, 015, and 039.  This will cost you 130 points, and
          will, among other things, release Xianghua's 3rd costume.
       4. Finish Arcade Mode with Xianghua, using her 3rd costume.  This
          will release Inferno.


II.2  Sub-bosses

     In Arcade Mode (and Time Attack Mode), your Stage 7 opponent is 
pre-determined, according to your character.  This is your character's 
"sub-boss".  Before the sub-boss match, instead of the characters' normal 
pre-match "ready" sequences, there will be a special pre-match sequence 
with the two characters (some of these are always the same, I think, but 
some do have variations...).  Note that the sub-boss battles don't always 
occur on the sub-boss' stage...
     Here follows a list of the characters' sub-bosses (do note that three 
of them do change, once the new character is playable...), and the stages 
the sub-boss battles occur on:

        Character      Sub-boss        Stage

        Voldo          Ivy             City of Water
        Ivy            Taki            Water Vein
                        Cervantes       Odalisque and Adrian
        Sophitia       Nightmare       Ruins of Ostrheinsburg Castle
        Mitsurugi      Taki            The Inundated Castle (WINTER)
        Kilik          Nightmare       Ruins of Ostrheinsburg Castle
                        Edge Master     The Pure Training Spot (EVENING)
        Xianghua       Nightmare       Ruins of Ostrheinsburg Castle
        Maxi           Astaroth        The Edge of Chaos
        Nightmare      Sophitia        Ruins of Ostrheinsburg Castle
        Taki           Nightmare       Ruins of Ostrheinsburg Castle
        Astaroth       Maxi            Indian Port

        Hwang          Maxi            Remain in the Desert
                        Seung Mina      The Chinese Temple (AUTUMN)
        Yoshimitsu     Nightmare       Ruins of Ostrheinsburg Castle
        Lizard Man     Astaroth        The Colosseum
        Siegfried      Mitsurugi       The Colosseum
        Rock           Lizard Man      The Edge of Chaos (DARK)
        Seung Mina     Hwang           Turkish Labyrinth
        Cervantes      Taki            Odalisque and Adrian
        Edge Master    Kilik           The Pure Training Spot
        Inferno        Nightmare       Ruins of Ostrheinsburg Castle


II.3  Outfits and stuff

     Note on using Random Select: Random select is compatible with the 3rd 
outfit code, weapon select, and metal model, but for some reason, will 
*not* adjust for the P1/P2 outfit toggle (it's possible to toggle between 
P1 and P2 outfits while on the Random Select box, but...).  So unless you 
use the 3rd outfit code (and get a character with a 3rd outfit), a Random 
character will always use the default outfit for whichever side it's on 
(P1/P2)...

II.3.A  Outfit selection
------
     Every character in the game has at least two outfits:
        P1 outfit: default for P1 side
        P2 outfit: default for P2 side
     (side notes: When choosing your Practice Mode *opponent*, the default 
outfits will be reversed, in comparison to your Practice Mode character 
(your opponent is on the other side)...  Also, even on the P2 side, the 
default character outfit will be the P1 outfit for some of the Museum Mode 
stuff (Exhibition Theater, Character Profile... and Opening Direction too, 
I think))

     Here's what each button does on the character select screen 
(functions are assigned to fixed buttons on the DCast controller, btw):
        dcA    Select character
        dcB    Cancel (where applicable)
        X      Select character
        Y      Outfit toggle (between P1 and P2 outfits)
        L/C    Weapon toggle (P1/P2/E.M.)
        R/Z    Metal Model select (hold key down when selecting character)
        START  Options menu (character select screen)
     (Notes: In mirror matches (same character on both sides), both 
characters cannot use the same outfit.  Weapon Select and Metal Model 
features have to be earned in Mission Mode (see the Mission Mode section 
of this document for more details).)

II.3.B  3rd outfits
------
     Some characters have a 3rd outfit.  Well... only five characters, 
actually: Siegfried, Xianghua, Sophitia, Maxi, Voldo.  Siegfried already 
has his 3rd outfit upon becoming a playable character.  The other four 3rd 
outfits, however, must be earned in Mission Battle Mode (see the Mission 
Mode section of this document for more details).
     To select a character's 3rd outfit, use the outfit select key (Y) as 
a shift key, instead of a toggle (i.e. hold the key down while selecting 
your character).  So: Y(X) or Y(dcA).

II.3.C  Sophitia, Mina, and Xianghua, ummm, supplementary color codes
------
     (note: From what I've been able to gather, the following codes do 
*not* work in the North American version of this game...)

     As it turns out, after choosing Sophitia's or Seung Mina's P1 or P2 
outfit, or Xianghua's P2 outfit, you may also select the color of the 
panties she wears with it.  Alas, yet more fan service...  Anyway, here 
are the codes and colors:

   After you've selected your character (Sophie/Mina/Xianghua), press and
   hold one of the following while the next (i.e. first) level is loading:

          A   - purplish-pink
          B   - purplish-blue
          K   - black
         A+B  - light blue
         B+K  - light red
         A+K  - light green
        A+B+K - light yellow
       (default = white)

     (note: the G button doesn't seem to do anything for any of the codes)

     Additionally, if you also hold up on the d-pad (or whatever you're 
using), you'll get a stronger version of the color; similarly, if you hold 
down on the d-pad, you'll get a weaker version (exceptions: black and 
white).  Left and right on the d-pad don't seem to have any effect on any 
of the above codes.

     The above codes work for all modes of the game, with the following 
exceptions/clarifications:
        Battle Theater - codes will not work
        Opening Direction - codes will not work
        Exhibition Theater - codes will work only on P1 side
        Character Profiles - codes will work only on P1 side
        Team Battle Mode - enter code before *Sophie/Mina/Xianghua's*
                           first battle
        Mission Battle Mode - enter code before each mission battle
     Also note that (as far as I've been able to tell) in Vs. Mode, the 
above codes will only work the *first* consecutive time you select the 
Sophie/Mina/Xianghua costume you've chosen.  So if you select one of these 
characters for the second (or third...) time in a row, the above codes 
won't work (you're stuck with what you selected the first time)... unless 
you also change her costume (keeping in mind, of course, that the codes 
will not work for Sophie3, Xianghua1, and Xianghua3).

II.3.D  Weapons
------
     After the Weapon Select feature is made available (see the Mission 
Mode section of this document), you can select which weapon you want your 
character to use (note: there's no restriction against both characters in 
a match (mirror match, or a match involving Edge Master and/or Inferno) 
using the same weapon):
        Weapon 1P: P1 outfit default weapon
        Weapon 2P: P2 outfit default weapon
        Weapon E.M.: Edge Master (P1 or P2 outfit) default weapon
     (note: the P3 outfits default to the P1 weapon)
     Use the L trigger (or the C button on the DCast arcade stick) to 
toggle through these three weapon choices.
     The weapon your character uses does not, as far as I know, affect 
damage (or damage resistance), speed, or range...

     The SoulCalibur: In Arcade Mode (and Time Attack Mode), Xianghua 
obtains the SoulCalibur just previous to her battle with Inferno (don't 
skip the "Inferno appearance" sequence if you want to see this).  Xianghua 
will then use the SoulCalibur (instead of whatever weapon she was using 
previously) in her battle against Inferno.  Using the SoulCalibur does 
not, as far as I know, affect Xianghua's style, damage (or damage 
resistance), speed, or range.  The SoulCalibur cannot (as far as I know) 
be selected or used at any other time.

II.3.E  Metal Model
------
     After the Metal Model feature is made available (see the Mission Mode 
section of this document), you can play a shiny metallic version of 
whichever character/outfit (this doesn't affect the weapons, though) you 
choose.  Simply hold the R trigger (or the Z button on the DCast arcade 
stick) down while selecting your character (i.e. R(X/dcA) or Z(X/dcA)).
     There are two versions of the Metal Model: gold and silver (hmmm...).
It appears that the P1 side always defaults to silver, and the P2 side 
always defaults to gold.  I haven't found any way to choose one over the 
other (besides playing on one side or the other), but if anybody discovers 
anything, do let me know...
     (Side note for those familiar with the arcade version of SoulCalibur: 
Predator-invisibility doesn't seem to be available in the DCast version of 
SoulCalibur (possibly because of hardware-related reasons); I suspect that 
Metal Model (which was not available in the arcade version of the game) is 
the replacement feature for the DCast version...)


II.4  Quotes and poses and stuff

II.4.A  Pre-match poses/quotes
------
     Each character appears to have two pre-match "ready" sequences 
(pose/quote done before the first round of a match).  However, I haven't 
found any way to specifically choose one or the other.  Hmmm... =/
     Note that the sub-boss battles get special pre-match sequences, which 
are usually different from the normal "ready" sequences.

II.4.B  Win poses/quotes
------
     It looks like each character in the game has at least 7 win pose/ 
quotes (exception: Lizard Man), and up to a maximum of 10 (exception: 
Sophitia).  The 10 commands are: G, A, B, K, G+A or A+B+K, G+A+B, u, d, l, 
and r.  Hold one of these down before your character's win pose screen, 
and you'll get the corresponding win pose/quote.
     Note: l and r, for some reason, don't always seem to yield the same 
win pose/quote.  Each command will yield one of the two win pose/quotes, 
however.  If anybody figures out a way to consistently get one or the 
other, do let me know...
     Holding down any of the other button combinations (G+B, G+K, A+B, 
A+K, B+K, G+A+K, G+B+K, G+A+B+K), or not holding anything down, will 
result in a win pose/quote randomly chosen from the first five (G, A, B, 
K, G+A/A+B+K).  (Side note: Holding G+A+B+K down to get a random pose/ 
quote, btw, is *not* recommended (if you're using the standard four 
buttons for those four keys), because of the danger of accidentally doing 
a soft reset... ^^; )

     Note on sub-boss and Inferno battles (Stages 7 and 8): There seem to 
be pre-assigned win pose/quotes for the winning round of sub-boss and 
Inferno matches.  I have not compiled data for these, but do note that 
some characters may have more than one possible Inferno win pose/quote, 
and that at least some of the sub-boss win pose/quotes are affected (i.e. 
whether they will occur or not) by the match length option (Game Options, 
Options Menu).  Oh, and if the sub-boss wins, he/she may have a specific 
pose/quote as well...

     Here follow win pose/quote notes for all the characters (besides Edge 
Master and Inferno).  The quotes are numbered in the order they appear 
(top to bottom) in the Voice section of the Character Profiles section of 
Museum Mode...

(Notation notes: For the sake of brevity, I'll be abbreviating "G+A/A+B+K"
 as "GA/ABK", and "G+A+B" as "GAB"...  Also, "var." means the pose is a
 variation of the noted pose; of course, some variations are subtler than
 others...  (m1),(m2),etc. means a quote missing from the Voice collection
 in the Character Profile...  x.1/x.2 means the first or second half of a
 quote, respectively...)

Sophie notes: I've actually found 18 (!) different win pose/quotes for 
Sophie!  Unfortunately, the single command conundrum is thus significantly 
worse for her.  Even the diagonals on the d-pad seem to have some unique 
effects...  Anyway, here follows listings of the 10 unstable win pose/ 
quotes I've found, and the commands I've managed to get each with (Key: 
pose var., quote #, command(s)):

       G var.   3     ul             B var.   6    dl/dr
                6     ur                      7    dr

                10    dl/dr                   4    ul/ur/dl

Further Sophie notes: Hmmm... I've actually gotten the GAB, the G'3, and 
the A'4 pose/quotes from a "manual" random command with Sophie.  I may   
have to do some further testing with Sophie, at some point...

III. Mission Battle Mode Stuff
------------------------------

III.1  The Locations

     In Mission Battle Mode, there are 20 locations total (17 normal, 2 
special (hidden), and 1 unstable (Chaos)).
     I've numbered the 17 normal locations from left to right (note: since 
locations 11 and 12 are in very nearly exactly the same vertical line, 
I've taken the liberty of assigning the lower location to be 11).  Here 
follow representations of the three map screens (from left to right), with 
approximate representations of the 17 normal locations, the 2 special 
(hidden) locations, and the points (those that I've seen) at which Chaos 
can appear (marked with a period instead of an asterisk, so as to remain 
fairly unobtrusive in these map representations):

     (side note on location * (Chaos): Chaos (i.e. Gap of the World), once 
available, will *always* appear on whichever map section you look at.  It 
will randomly choose a location (from those marked above) each time you 
look at a new map section.  Chaos is easy to spot, however, as it shows up 
as what appears to be a burning hole in the map...)

     In case anybody's interested, here's how the 17 normal locations, and 
the 1 unstable location, correspond to the Stages in the main section of 
the game:

        1   Odalisque and Adrian                Cervantes stage
        2   The Valentine Mansion               Ivy stage

        6   Ruins of Ostrheinsburg Castle       Nightmare stage
        7   Corridor to the Sanctuary           Sophitia stage

        8   Turkish Labyrinth                   Seung Mina stage

III.2  The Missions

     In Mission Battle Mode, there are a total of 82 missions, which I've 
organized according to the following designations:
        23 Level 1 missions (including Chaos1)
        18 Level 2 missions (including Chaos2)
        34 Extra missions
         7 Special (hidden) missions
     For each mission, there is a standard point value you'll get if you 
complete it on your first try (i.e. 1/1).  In general, for each subsequent 
time you complete a mission, its point value will decrease a bit (up to a 
specific minimum value for each mission, I think).  Similarly, it appears 
that for each time you fail a mission before completing it, its value will 
actually increase a bit (probably up to a specific maximum).
     (side note on mission failures: Even though the game keeps track of 
mission failures, I don't think having failed a mission will actually 
affect anything in the game (at least, I haven't found anything yet).  If 
you want to be on the safe side (or just want to keep your mission records 
looking nice), however, you can always reset and reload after any failed 
mission...)
     (side note on colosseum missions: Simiarly, I'm fairly certain that 
defeating all opponents on all the colosseum (location 4) missions (which 
I've actually managed to do with Cervantes) will not actually affect 
anything in the game.  Well... aside from giving you a pretty hefty sum of 
points, that is... =) )

     Here follow some charts showing the difficulty ratings and standard 
point values for each mission (grouped according to mission type)...
     (notation note: If a mission value is followed by a "}", that means 
the subsequent missions (of that class, at that location) will not be 
available until after that mission has been completed)

III.2.D  Special (hidden) missions
-------
Special Missions: (7 missions, 750/1450/2150 pts. total init.)

     (Special Mission notes: The Special Mission locations are not marked
      on the Mission Mode map, but if you pass by one with the pointer,
      the game will give you the chirp that indicates a location; see the
      Mission Mode Locations section of this document for approximate
      locations of the Hidden missions.  The point values of the Special
      Missions actually change!  Basically, all Special mission initial
      point values (i.e. for the first time you complete the mission)
      increase by 100 after mission *.1 becomes playable, and increase by
      another 100 after *.2 becomes playable...)

III.2.E  Quick reference chart
-------
     And finally, for quick reference purposes, here's a chart that just 
lists the standard point values for all the missions, all in one chart:

III.3  The Art Gallery

     The Art Gallery section (in Mission Mode and Museum Mode) isn't just 
about earning a bunch of pretty pictures; this is actually where you earn 
most of the "extras" in the game!
     Certain pictures in the gallery, when purchased, will also release 
certain extras in the game.  There are six categories of extras you can 
earn, which I'm designating as follows: (the non-FULL CAPS categories 
affect only Mission Mode (and the Museum Gallery), btw)

        new Gallery
        new Mission
        NEW STAGE
        NEW FEATURE
        EXHIBITION THEATER
        PASSWORD

     The pictures which release extras, however, are *not* all assigned to 
a particular extra on a one-to-one basis (more often than not, they are 
assigned, rather, to a particular category of extra).  In four of the six 
categories (new Gallery, NEW STAGE, NEW FEATURE, EXHIBITION THEATER), 
items are released in a particular order, regardless of the purchase order 
of the art in that category...

III.3.A  Cost and extras list

     Here follow charts listing costs and released extras for the art in 
each Gallery:

     (note on Gallery 15: Gallery 15 will appear after 322 pictures (i.e. 
all pictures in Galleries 1-14) are viewable (i.e. after purchasing 265 
(Galleries 1-12) pictures).  The Slideshow feature will also appear in the 
Art Gallery at this point...)
     (note on the Slideshow feature: When you run the Slideshow, it 
appears to choose a random picture to start, then progresses, in order 
from there, to loop through all available pictures (even any Gallery 15 
pictures you have)...)

     And if anybody's wondering what the totals come out to:
        All Galleries  (338/51080) (86/6960)

     So it looks like if you complete every mission once, and every Extra 
mission a second time, even if you earn the minimum number of points 
(32540 + 24480 = 57020), you should have more than enough points to be 
able to purchase all the pictures...

So if you're just trying to release all the extras, you can actually skip

     Each Password is attached to a specific picture, as follows:
        "PASSWORD" pictures  (6/320)
           044   50      STAGE OF HISTORY
           071   30      POWER OF DARKNESS
           110   30      AGE OF APOCALYPSE
           154   50      EYE OF EVIL
           214   80      SOUL OF HERO
           247   80      TERROR OF NIGHTMARE
     Enter these passwords on the Namco webpage (http://www.namco.co.jp/), 
in the Dreamcast SoulCalibur Password Page:
        http://www.namco.co.jp/home/cs/dc/soulcalibur/password.html
     As of current writing, all passwords are active.  Passwords were 
supposed to remain active until (or perhaps through) Dec/2000; judging 
from the fact that the password page and passwords are currently still 
active, however, things have apparently been extended for at least a 
little while longer.  =)

     Note also that there are two additional PASSWORDS which may be earned 
via the downloadable VMU mini-games located at:
   http://www.namco.co.jp/home/cs/dc/soulcalibur/minigame/index.html
     There is a Xianghua Text Adventure (mostly text, some pictures, and 
occasional choice points, where you're generally given 2 or 3 options to 
choose from) and a Mini-game 3-Pack (a Voldo "trampoline" game, a word 
(un)scramble game, and a "cannon" game).
     The Xianghua Text Adventure will require 99 blocks, and the Mini-game 
3-Pack will require 98 blocks on your VMU (of course, I think you can only 
have one mini-game on your VMU at a time...).  Note that some Japanese VMU 
file download processes *will* check to see what browser you're running, 
so if you get a "Forbidden" error on a download or download page, you may 
have to use the browser from a Japanese game (Dream Passport, DP2, 
DP3...), or, more specifically, the browser from that specific Japanese 
game (in this case, the J version of SoulCalibur).
     [side notes: If you need help configuring Dream Passport for your 
ISP, consult a Dream Passport FAQ.  If you need further assistance, e-mail 
the author of that FAQ.  Do not e-mail me with any such queries/requests, 
because in all likelihood, unless you're a close personal friend, I 
probably won't have the time to even respond to your e-mail, let alone 
actually help you out.  ^^; ]
     Getting "ENDING 1" in the Xianghua Text Adventure will earn you the 
password from that mini-game.  And getting above a certain pre-determined 
level or score in *any* of the three games on the Mini-game 3-Pack (each 
has a specific condition) will earn you the password from the 3-Pack 
(there's only one password).  Here are the passwords earned from each:
     Xianghua Text Adventure   KISS OF ANGEL
     Mini-game 3-Pack          GEAR OF MADNESS

III.3.B  Earning points from other game modes
-------
     You can actually earn points from game modes other than Mission 
Battle Mode, as follows:

     For finishing Arcade Mode or Time Attack Mode:
        10 pts/completion    after mission 12.1 has been completed
        20 pts/completion    after mission *.1 has been completed
        50 pts/completion    after mission *.2 has been completed

     For every 10 wins (in a single game) in Survival or Extra Survival:
        10 pts/10 wins       after mission 12.1 has been completed
        20 pts/10 wins       after mission *.1 has been completed
        50 pts/10 wins       after mission *.2 has been completed

III.3.C  In-view commands
-------
     The following commands are available while viewing a picture in the 
Art Gallery (functions are assigned to fixed buttons on the DCast 
controller, btw):
        dcA      Toggle title/caption
        dcB      Exit to picture select
        X        Zoom in
        Y        Zoom out
        L/C      View previous picture in current gallery
        R/Z      View next picture in current gallery
        u/d/l/r  Move picture u/d/l/r.

IV. Miscellany
--------------

IV.1  The replay camera

     For rounds that your character wins, you will actually have control 
over the replay camera, as follows (functions are assigned to fixed 
buttons on the DCast controller, btw):
         up/down      Rotate camera vertically
        left/right    Rotate camera horizontally
            X         Zoom in
            Y         Zoom out
          dcB/Z       Toggle focus from one character to the other


IV.2  Practice Mode replay

     In the Practice Mode replay (press START during Practice Mode, and 
select the "Start Replay" option), the camera can be controlled just like 
during normal replay.  The replay will loop indefinitely (I think), until 
you exit by hitting the START button (Practice Mode will then reset back 
to starting conditions).
     You can also speed up or slow down the replay, as follows:
        L    Slow replay
        R    Fast replay
     Either hit or hold a trigger to change the replay speed; speed will 
reset back to standard when the replay loops back to the beginning.  These 
codes will not work with the Arcade Stick, since it does not have an R or 
L trigger.
     Note: You can hold the R trigger down while doing the other replay 
commands (zoom, rotate, etc.), but holding the L trigger down seems to 
cause the following difficulties: zoom in, zoom out will not function; 
camera angle rotation will get stuck on whatever d-pad command was being 
entered when you started holding L.  The character focus toggle seems to 
work fine, though, when holding L.

     Practice Mode replay bug (non-fatal): Do one of the following throws 
in Practice Mode, and then Replay it.  Press START (to exit the replay 
loop) *during* the throw move, and when things reset, the thrown character 
will start acting, uh, kinda weird (stumbling/dancing around, and stuff; 
the weirdness will last until the character is hit, or a command is 
inputted for him)...  These are the cases for which this occurs (I've 
actually tested every character combination, so the following list should 
be complete):
        Taki throwing Astaroth    (any Taki throw)
        Voldo throwing Astaroth   (any Voldo throw)
        Astaroth throwing Voldo   (any Astaroth throw)
        Cervantes throwing Voldo  (any Cervantes throw)
        Cervantes throwing Rock   (any Cervantes throw)
        Cervantes throwing Kilik  (any Cervantes throw)
     (note: Cervantes' standard (from front) G+B throw is somewhat 
temperamental (based upon when you interrupt it), for activating the bug; 
in general, moments when he's actually damaging his opponent with it seem 
to work better than moments when he is not...)


IV.3  The Character Profile view

     In the Character Profiles section of the Museum (see the Mission Mode 
section of this document for info on how to release the Character Profiles 
feature), once you've selected a character, you'll actually have some 
degree of control over the view, as follows (functions are assigned to 
fixed buttons on the DCast controller, btw):
        left/right    Rotate camera horizontally
            X         Zoom in
            Y         Zoom out
           L/Z        On/off toggle for on-screen text box


IV.4  The title screen(s)

     There are actually four different title screens in the game.  The 
following are the conditions required for each:

        1) Initial Title Screen
           (no conditions; initially available)
        2) Edge Master and Weapons
           - All (19) characters playable
        3) 16 Characters & the SoulCalibur (b/w)
           - All characters playable
           - Complete Gallery (338 pictures)
           - All Missions playable (including Special Missions)
        4) 16 Characters & the SoulCalibur (color (gold/purple))
           - All characters playable
           - Complete Gallery (338 pictures)
           - All Missions completed (including Special Missions)

     (note on title screen 2: This is a b/w version of picture 068 in the 
Art Gallery...)
     (notes on getting title screen 3: To make all Missions playable, 
minimally, all you have to have done is: completed missions *.2, S2.1, 
S2.2, S2.3, and S2.4.  While it's not technically necessary to have done 
any of the Extra missions, completing most or all of the Extra missions 
will help greatly towards the Complete Gallery condition...)


IV.5  BGM Test

     The BGM Test (music player) option (located in the Sound Options 
section of the Options Menu) has a total of 30 tracks (whose complete 
runtime is around 43'15").  The music player doesn't start with all 30 
tracks, however.  These are the tracks it starts with initially: 1-12, 
21-22.  The rest of the tracks can be released as follows:
         13    release Stage: Remain in the Desert
         14    release Stage: Water Vein
         15    release Stage: City of Water
         16    release Stage: The Colosseum
         17    release Stage: Turkish Labyrinth
         18    release Stage: Odalisque and Adrian
         19    release Stage: Gap of the World
         20    release Slideshow option in Art Gallery
         23    release Opening Direction option in Museum Mode
        24-30  finish Arcade Mode (any character, any settings)


IV.6  The VMU screen

     There are, as far as I know, only four things the VMU screen is used 
for in the DCast SoulCalibur:
        SoulCalibur logo        default
        Save icon (Ivy)         while saving
        Load icon (Xianghua)    while loading
        SD character            during battle


IV.7  Auto-save

     SoulCalibur has an auto-save process.  However, this auto-save 
feature cannot be turned off (of course, if you want to prevent an 
auto-save, you can always just pull your VMU out (but don't do this while 
the VMU is in the process of loading or saving, of course!).  Do note that 
there is also a manual SAVE process in the Memory Card section of the 
Options Menu, as well as in the main menu in Mission Battle Mode.  The 
auto-save points are fairly prevalent within the game (the game usually 
auto-saves when you exit a game Mode, and after each time you complete a 
game (like Arcade Mode), for example; keep an eye on the VMU screen (or 
watch for the in-game "now saving" screen) if you want to spot the 
auto-save points), but if you want to be sure, you can always just do a 
manual SAVE...


IV.8  Soft reset

     The standard DCast five-button reset (A+B+X+Y(START)) will "soft" 
reset the game back to the title screen, unless done anytime (I think) 
during Attract Mode, in which case it will exit you entirely out of the 
game, and back to the main DCast menu.  So be careful not to do a soft 
reset during Attract Mode!  (unless you actually want to exit the game, 
that is...)


IV.9  Attract Mode stuff

     For those of you who are interested, here's the order of events in 
Attract Mode, if you don't do anything and just let the game cycle 
through:

        OP sequence
        Title screen
        Character battle and profile
        High score screen
        namco screen
        Character exhibition (kata)
        Title screen
        Character battle and profile
        High score screen

     After that, attract mode will cycle back to the OP sequence again...

     Here are some more detailed notes:

        OP sequence - Attract mode will switch between your custom OP
           sequence (as specified in the Opening Direction section of the
           Museum) and a quasi-random (all character slots seem to be
           random, except for the "A girl in the wind" slot, which seems
           to randomly select only from the female characters) OP
           sequence, starting, of course, with the custom OP.

        Character battle and profile - The character being profiled will
           always start on the P1 side; the battle opponent appears to be
           chosen randomly.  Attract mode will go through the character
           battle/profiles in the following order: Kilik, Xianghua, Maxi,
           Mitsurugi, Taki, Voldo, Sophitia, Nightmare, Astaroth, Ivy,
           Seung Mina, Hwang, Yoshimitsu, Rock, Lizard Man, Edge Master,
           Siegfried, Inferno, Cervantes.  For each character, all
           available outfits will be cycled through, starting with the P1
           outfit.  So for a character with 2 outfits, it will take two
           battle/profile demos to complete the outfit cycle, while for a
           character with 3 outfits, it will take three.

        High score screen - Attract mode will go through the high score
           screens in the following order: Arcade, Time Attack, Survival,
           Extra Survival.

        Character exhibition (kata) - Attract mode will go through the
           character kata in the following order: Kilik, Xianghua,
           Maxi(1), Mitsurugi, Taki, Voldo, Sophitia, Nightmare, Astaroth,
           Ivy, Seung Mina, Hwang, Yoshimitsu, Rock, Lizard Man, Edge
           Master, Siegfried, Cervantes, Maxi(2).  The outfit cycle
           process is the same as for the character battle and profile
           demo (see above).

     Attract mode character exhibition (kata) stage variations: Under 
certain conditions, instead of a character's standard stage, the variation 
of that stage will be used instead, for the attract mode kata.  Here are 
the characters and conditions (date/time conditions (based on DCast system 
clock/calendar (as opposed to the VMU), I think)), for each attract kata 
stage variation:
        Mitsurugi    December-February    The Inundated Castle (WINTER)
        Kilik        September-November   The Pure Training Spot (EVENING)
        Xianghua     September-November   The Chinese Temple (AUTUMN)
        Astaroth     3:00pm-3:15pm        The Edge of Chaos (DARK)
        Hwang        7:00pm-4:59am        Remain in the Desert (NIGHT)
     Note: In attract mode, Edge Master's stage will be the stage for the 
character whose style he's using.  I haven't checked to see if Edge 
Master, when using one of the above styles, may also appear on a stage 
variation, under the above conditions... though I suppose it is possible 
that he might. (shrug)


IV.10  Screensaver function

     Yep, there's actually a screensaver function in the game!  Well, 
okay, all it does is darken the screen a bit.  And it only works in 
certain sections of the game.  But anyway... here are the areas I've found 
the screensaver to work in: Mission Mode map screen, and anywhere in the 
Art Gallery besides the Slideshow.  Activation time is 5 minutes (of idle 
time).
     (Side notes: The screensaver is probably just the DCast system's 
default screensaver function, which I think will not activate if the 
system actively reads from the disc (which SoulCalibur does, in order to 
play BGM).  And in case anybody's interested, CD spin stop activation time 
is 1 hour (of idle time).  Like the screensaver, I think this will only 
work in certain parts of the game (in the Options Menu, for example), 
though...)

     There is also a screensaver in the web browser (Dream Passport 2) 
included with the game (note: the U/C version of SCalibur does not have an 
Internet option, so probably has no browser).  The screensaver seems to be 
based upon the SCalibur character portraits (i.e. the pictures shown 
during the VS. screens), and will apparently choose one at random, and 
take it through one of a few simple screensaver effects.
     Once you're running DP2 (you don't necessarily have to be connected 
to your ISP), screensaver activation time is 5 minutes (of idle time).  
Approximately every five minutes thereafter, the screensaver will reset, 
choosing a new character portrait, and possibly a new effect to run...
