    "What?  Another FAQ?"
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    There was a demand on the Message Board for a list of Bonus Moves for the
    Historic Mode matches, and I had access to the Giant Gram 2000 Perfect Guide.
    I figured it was a perfect way to practice my Japanese reading comprehension
    and give people what they wanted at the same time.

    might tweak the layout a little.  All constructive criticism is welcome.

    straightforward.  I hope.  See above.

    Many grateful thanks to Don Becker and BigUnit420, for the original Historic
    Mode FAQs.  Without their work, I would not have been able to complete Historic
    Mode matches, which encouraged my enthusiasm to buy the Giant Gram 2000 Perfect
    Guide, which is directly responsible for this FAQ.
    
    Similarly, I have to thank Professor Rev for the Move List and menu
    translations, which has been unparalleled help, both in translation and in
    gameplay.
    
    Sadly, I have not seen or heard from these Message Board regulars for quite a
    while.  If any of you have an issue with anything I have one here, please get a
    hold of me.
    
    Many thanks also go out to Sega for producing yet another quality Dreamcast
    title.
    
    And, finally, my thanks to those GameFAQs Message Board regulars who encouraged
    me to write this up, and send it in.
