               Extra Files Guide (N64/Dreamcast versions)

                         March 2nd, 2000

In the Nintendo 64 (and I believe the Dreamcast) version of Resident 
Evil 2, there are several new files and/or notes to read. Because of 
this, I felt it was necessary to point out their locations, and their 
message if you don't feel like starting a new game to find them. When 
you collect these, they will appear underneath the "EX" file in the 
pause menu, "EX" supposedly standing for extra.

 1.  Dario's Note
 2.  David's Letter
 3.  Op Instructions
 4.  Umbrella Memo
 5.  Journalist's Note
 6.  Jill's Note
 7.  Robert's Note 
 8.  Brad's Note - NEW -
 9.  Jill's Report - NEW -
10.  Raccoon City Pamphlet - NEW -
11.  Mercenary's Log - NEW -
12.  Mother Virus Report - NEW - 
13.  Credits Section
14.  Legal Information / Contact Information


I'm quite sure this is not all of them, so if anyone finds one I missed 
or overlooked, feel free to send it in and I will give credit to you. 
There certainly are plenty more spaces left in the "EX" options menu, 
that's for sure...


Location: When making your way to the police precinct in one of the 
          first scenarios (Leon 1, Claire 1), you will find yourself on 
          a wrecked bus. At the front, where the driver is, you will 
          find a suitcase. Search it to find this...

#FILE 05/16

   I can't help but wonder if anyone will read these words, but writing 
them will help me maintain my sanity if nothing else.

   After I've become a meal for those undead monsters, will the G.I.s 
responsible for sealing off the town laugh upon discovering my corpse? 
So is this how it's supposed to end? I don't want to die, I'm just not 

   My wife, daughter, mother....My entire family has been killed. But 
none of that matters anymore. Right now, my life is the only important 
thing. That's all that matters.

   I never would have pictured my end to be like this. I had so much 
left to do. Rather than becoming a salesman, I should have tried my hand 
at being a novelist. It's what I've always wanted, but my mother would 
only tell me 'you have a long way to go.'

                   Why did I ever listen to her?

   But this looks like the end for the great Dario Rosso, novelist 
extraordinaire. Cut down before his prime...


Location: Inside of the detective's office (has several fans, and the 
          door that requires the Heart Key to open) search the largest 
          table, and you will find it eventually.

#FILE 07/16

My sanity is at its end...I still can't believe this is happening. We 
lost another man yesterday. Meyer; one of our better marksmen. He saw me 
panic once we were overrun by the zombies, but he came back to save me.

When the time came to return the debt, I ran.

I can still hear him calling out my name. I can still hear the screams 
coming from behind. The sound of his fleshed being ripped from its 
bones. I was afraid...terrified...

It's the 27th. The fight to stay alive continues. I took out several 
zombies who managed to break through the barricades. Now I'm cutting 
through the chill with whisky, unloading my Mossberg on anything undead. 
That shotgun's become a close friend of mine. I've blasted many a zombie 
into fertilizer with it.

We've lost 13 mean as of yesterday, in three hours we'll bicker over 
trivial things in the meeting room. It's a total waste of time. When I 
finish this bottle, my old friend Mossberg will be turning one last body 
into fertilizer.

Peace at last.
I can hardly wait...


Location: In the sewers, depending on the scenario you will have to 
          retrieve the Wolf Medal from the clutches of several 
          disemboweled bodies. Search some more around the gruesome 
          sight, and you should be able to easily find this file as 

#FILE 03/16

Orders for Special Agent Hunk are as follows: 

Penetrate Umbrella research facility located outside of raccoon city. 
Recover G-virus sample from Dr. William Birkin. You are authorized to 
use any means necessary to secure this sample.

Upon recovery, sample is to be delivered to Loire Village. Failure on 
this mission is NOT an option.

French Division
R&D Facility Head Manager
Christine Henri


Location: The Umbrella Memo is in the room in the east area of the 
          underground lab that requires the lab card key. It is also the 
          room where you need to get the base vaccine in Claire A. 
          (thanks goes to rebelxb@aol.com for this)

#FILE 11/16

Dear Dr. Birkin,

   It has come to my attention that we are currently experiencing a 
shortage of APL-14. To counteract this problem I am asking you and 
several other labs to donate five cases of APL-14 to our facility 

   For your information, we have discovered, that our base of the South 
Pole, in Antarctica, is primarily responsible for this shortage. 

   We are currently taking steps to prevent this from happening in the 
future. And don' worry, the Ashford's reputation is now irreparably 

   Your quick response is greatly appreciated.

September 15


Location: In the brown hallway that leads to the room where you received 
          the Cog Wheel, there is a green door. Go inside, defeat the 
          licker if you must, and continually search the desk. Bingo...

#FILE 12/16

   As I write this, my hands shake with both anger and fear. The 
civilians of the town have been blockaded by the military. And though I 
sigh for the survivors of the town, I still feel that it's the best 
decision. They cannot take the chance of the disease spreading any 

   I am going to make it my top priority to discover what has causes 
this incredibly dangerous incident. So far, I have only concluded that 
the disease is not airborne.

 6.  "JILL'S NOTE"

Location: Inside the S.T.A.R.S office room, search the desk near where 
          you received Chris' diary. Voila!

#FILE 08/16

   It all began as an ordinary day in September. An ordinary day in 
Raccoon City. A city controlled by Umbrella.

   No one dared to oppose them. That and the lack of strength would 
ultimately lead to their destruction.

   I suppose they had to suffer the consequences of their actions, but 
there would be no forgiveness afterwards. If only they had the courage 
to fight...

   But it's true that once the wheels of justice begin to turn, nothing 
can stop them. Nothing.


Location: In the gunshop, search the counter in front of the broken 
          glass casings. You can clearly see it before even reaching it 
          (thanks goes to Kevin -- nivek81@hotmail.com -- for this one)

#FILE 04/16

   How could this have happened Barry? The town's been overrun by 
zombies and has literally become a nightmare on earth.

   As you know, my concern for this town us as great as your own. I have 
waited for your arrival on the assumption you were still in the area, 
but the threat of my shop being overwhelmed by zombies has become too 

   I've already distributed the majority of the weapons and ammunition 
to the town's survivors, including the Raging Bull you special ordered. 
I hope you understand, given the circumstances.

   At any rate, I have no intention of pointlessly sacrificing my life 
and will be retreating to Stone Ville.

   If you get this message, meet me there. We'll go fishing...

 8.  "BRAD'S NOTE"

(Thank K JOHNSTON <mysti@escape.ca> for this one)

Location: In the "B" game, make your way to the front of the police 
          station, where you would normally find the Brad Vicker's 
          zombie if you were to make it there without picking up any 
          items in the "A" game. Now, there is a small piece of paper 

#FILE 10/16


   It's that monster in the black suit again! Why does that thing keep 
chasing me?! What did I do? This must be someone's sick idea of a joke.

   If I knew things were going to end up like this, I would have left 
the S.T.A.R.S. team a long time ago. But whining won't help me now. I 
know I'm finished...

   Oh...In my hometown Delucia, I bet the flowers are in bloom. If I 
could only see them once more before I die...

          square crank. 

#FILE 01/16

July 24, 1998
Raccoon Forest:

   The following documents were obtained at a sanitarium owned by 
Umbrella Corp.:

       "Umbrella Bio Organic Weapon Publicity Material"
                 Dev.  Code:  MA-39  Cerberus
                 Dev.  Code:  MA-121 Hunter
                 Dev.  Code:  Fi-3   Neptune
                 Dev.  Code:  T-002  Tyrant

   In addition to the above.  It is believed that several other B.O.W. 
were created by means of accidental infection.

   During the course of the tests.  It was discovered that the contagion 
is not limited to human beings, and may pose a hazardous risk to plant 
and animal lifeforms.

   Effective means of controlling this contagion have yet to be

City Guide No. 12
-A Brief Look-

   Hello and welcome to Raccoon City!  As you will notice, our city is a 
clean and private town dedicated to families. Raccoon City has partnered 
with our friends at Umbrella Inc., in order to generate unprecedented 
growth and stability.  Umbrella Inc.  is a highly regarded and well
funded organization that cares about its employees.  They have helped to 
create many public facilities to make this city a safer place for 

  As we look to the future, I will continue to support Umbrella Inc. in 
terms of new business developments.

  Please enjoy your stay in my lovely city.  Thank you.

Michael Warren
Raccoon City Mayor


(credit goes to Mr. Cactus <WalknCacts@aol.com> for this one)

Location: Start a "B" game. In the streets, before getting any items or 
          keys, you will find a hotdog stand in the background. Walk up 
          to it and search near the glimmering item. Ta da!

#FILE 6/16
  September 1st,

   Following six months of intensive training, my body's edge had 
returned. I was a good soldier, but they ordered my execution with no 
reason given. I was tortured and forced to give a false confession.

   But on the morning of my execution, a miracle happened. The company 
had helped me out, giving me a second lease on life.

  September 15th,

   I ended my vacation short and returned to the HQ office. It looks 
like my UBCS unit's been called into action. Umbrella maintains its own 
paramilitary unit to counter corporate terrorism and V.I.P. abduction. 
In addition, they have nightmen who specialize in handling problems 
caused by illegal operations. 

   I'm currently a member of the latter.

  September 28th,
   Dawn's here, but we're still slogging through this nightmare. There 
are no provisions of any kind here. The undead walk the streets feeding 
upon the flesh of the living.

   Given the choice again, I would rather have been executed. Death row 
was a heavenly asylum compared to this place. 
   I've chosen to pull the trigger myself, in the hope that my dead body 
won't come back to life.


Location: In the "B" game, go to Umbrella's secret laboratory, to the 
          room with the G-Virus vaccine sythensither. On one of the 
          tables is a small, tan envelope: pick it up (beware, you'll 
          need to pick up a typewriter ribbon in the process).

#FILE 13/16

   The Mother Virus was first discovered by Ozwell E. Spencer. And it 
was him, who founded Umbrella Inc.. As time passed, Spencer's research 
was succeeded to Dr. J. Marcus. However, Dr. Marcus abused his power and 
had to be fired.

   Following Dr. Marcus came Dr. William Birkin. Dr. Birkin's 
experiments delivered many outstanding results including the T-virus. It 
is presumed that he will be finishing work on the more powerful G-virus 
in the near future.

   Currently, research on the Mother Virus takes place at our 
laboratories all over the world. In the near future, we hope to discover 
many new viruses.

This FAQ can only appear on the following sites:

- GameFAQs <www.gamefaqs.com>
- Cheat Code Central <www.cheatcc.com>
- GameSages <www.gamesages.com>

Why? Because those are the only three sites that can keep my FAQs 
updated. GameFAQs gets away with murder, though, on account of the fact 
I send my FAQs there myself. Gamesages is GameFAQs sister site, so they 
share information. Cheat Code Central is great, because they always seem 
to have the most updated version without me having to tell them. Great 
job, guys and gals. 

I just hate it when people have outdated versions of my FAQs, because I 
get loads (e.g. 100+) of e-mails telling me to "update my FAQ" even 
though it IS updated, or they ask a question that has been answered in 
the new versions, or make additions that are already there, etc., etc. 
I've had problems with this with other FAQs, and I'm taking steps (e.g. 
this note) to put an end to it! 

Here are a few "do's" and "don'ts". Webmasters! Take note...


Post this FAQ on your site directly. The only sites that this rule DOES 
NOT apply to are GameFAQs, GameSages, and Cheat Code Central, as shown 


If you are a webmaster of a site that wants to post this FAQ, what do 
you do? As you read above, you can not post it directly. Instead, link 
to the page at www.gamefaqs.com that lists all the FAQs for this game. 
Why GameFAQs? Because I said so. To clear up some confusion, you can not 
link to the URL if it ends in ".txt" or ".doc", you just can't use that. 
If it ends in anything else, such as the page where it lists all the 
FAQs for a game, you can link to THAT, but not to the actual FAQ. I'm 
only repeating myself, but I had to because some people have to be told 
something twice. If you have any questions on linking, notify me. To 
answer the most common question I'll get, you can not link to any 
GameFAQs URL that ends in ".txt" or ".doc" because it's in GameFAQs' 
legal section. So there. 

This FAQ cannot be used in magazines, guides, books, etc. or in any 
other form of printed or electronic media involved in a commercial
