    Intro to Noise |
    ______________;
    
    Noise plays an important role in Megaman Star Force 3.  Its effects allow
    Noise Changes to occur and new cards to be obtained.  The power of Noise can
    only be harnessed when the ability Ace Program (or Joker Program for the
    Red Joker version)
    
    
    -The Noise Gauge-
    When the ability is equipped, the Noise Gauge appears in battle.  Normally
    the Gauge is at 0% when the battle starts.  The percentage can be raised in
    different ways depending on the battle you are in.
    
    In regular virus battles, only overkill non-elemental damage raises the
    Noise Gauge.  In these cases, stronger attacks are more effective in raising
    noise.  So using a 200 damage non-elemental attack on a 40 HP Mettaur will
    raise the Noise Gauge by 160%.
    
    In boss battles, raising Noise is different.  Only non-elemental attacks
    hitting the boss will raise the Noise Gauge by half the damage of the attack.
    So a 100 damage attack hitting a boss will raise the Noise Gauge by 50%.
    
    During Player vs Player battles (PvP) raising the Noise level is also
    different.  Only attacks that hit using the Mega Attack, which is targetting,
    raises the Noise Gauge by half the attack power.  The attack can be of any
    element just as long as it hits.  Another way to raise the Noise Level in PvP
    battles is through the use of Mega and Giga Class cards.  Mega Cards adds 20%
    to the Noise Gauge.  Giga Cards add 30%.
    
    
    -The Effects of Noise-
    At 0%, Noise does nothing.  At 50%, your Noise change will go into Vibrant
    Form and you gain some abilities from your Noise.  Anything over 100% noise,
    unlocks the effects of Noise.  However, the Noise Gauge quickly goes down when
    it is above 50%.  If you reach 50%, it won't go below it unless you are hit
    with your weakness in your Noise's Vibrant Form.  When the Noise Gauge is over
    200% and you enter the Custom Screen, you can gain access to your version's
    Finalized Form and a temporary folder from the Star Force Meteor Server,
    Meteor G.
    
    When the Noise Gauge is over 100%, the Gauge turns red.  You should also
    notice some physical effects of Noise.  Certain irregularities occur when the
    Noise Guage is over 100%.  These effects should be positive to the player.
    Any attack can pierce invisible.  Pulling attakcs push; pushing attacks pull.
    The noisy appearance also makes it hard to see certain panels.  Random panels
    will get covered up and it won't be possible to see the panel type.  If you
    end a battle with the Noise Gauge over 100%, you can start the next battle at
    50%. This rule does not apply in PvP battles.  Also, the Noise Gauge turns red
    at 200% in PvP battles.
    
    
    -Illegal Card Data-
    Finishing a battle with over 100% noise will change the results and cards
    you get.  The card you get can be completly unrelated to the enemy you fought.
    This is called Illegal Data Acquisition.  The card you get from this are not
    added to the library and have their name in teal.  Just because they're
    illegal doesn't mean they're bad.  This expands the range of cards you can use
    and introduces a wider variety of cards, including cards from the previous
    Star Force games.  The data you get depends on the enemy you fight.
    The harder the fight, the better the data you get.  Better means a higher
    level of a certain card.  So fighting a group of Mettaurs might earn me a
    Dance Fire 1.  But fighting some Black Hole viruses could give me a
    Dance Fire 3.  Bosses usually give better cards than viruses after battle.
    Bosses have versions which determine the rarity of the card you will get.
    V3 bosses start giving Illegal Card Data.  Omega-level bosses give the best
    cards such as X-level Mega Cards and rare Giga Cards.
    
    The chain of card rarity goes like this:
    Viruses > PvP > R Bosses > V3 Bosses > Omega Bosses
    
    It doesn't matter which boss you fight because only the version determines the
    reward.  V3 bosses can drop Giga Cards too, but not as often as Omega bosses.
    
    When you can get Illegal Card Data, it is possible to get more than one card
    in the results screen.  This is possible when you beat the battle with an
    S-Rank and a Noise Level of over 300%.
    Getting an S-Rank is different depending on the battle you fight.
    
    In virus battles you must make a double or triple delete to get an S-Rank.
    In boss battles, you must beat the battle below 30-ish seconds.
    In PvP battles, the same rules apply as boss battles.
    
    Common to all battle types is one thing.  Damage.  You must avoid flinching
    to get a higher rank.  Super Armor helps with this.  Getting paralyzed will
    also lower your rank.  Countering the opponent helps to raise a low rank.
    
    What you get from the battle depends on chance.  You can get Noise Frags at
    the minimum, but a harder boss will generally drop less Noise Frags and more
    X cards.  Omega-level bosses include Rogue ZZ and Sigma bosses as well.

    Noise Change Info |
    _________________;
    
    Sometime during the main story, you get your first Noise Change.  The Noise
    Change you get then and the Noise Change you get after that depends on the
    way you fight.  Randomly on the Wave Road, instead of encountering a normal
    battle, you face a WARNING battle.  It could be a boss or a virus.  If it is
    a virus battle, you have a chance to change your current Noise Change.
    You can always cancel the Noise Change you encounter.  If you change your
    Noise to a new Noise, you will get a message from the Meteor Server.
    The next time you get that Noise Change you won't get a message.
    You can also switch back to your previous Noise, effectively allowing you
    to having more than 1 Noise.
    
    At National Astro Wave 1, you can find a Noism that is willing to switch you
    back to your previous Noise except Rogue Noise.  Only 2 Noise Changes can
    be "kept" at once.  If you had Virgo Noise and switched to Cancer Noise, you
    can only alternate between the two, not farther back.
    
    At the start of a battle with 0%, Noise Changes are in Noise Form.
    You will have a non-elemental body and your regular charge shot.  The Noise
    Gauge locks at 50% and that's when you are in Vibrant Noise Form.  You get
    your Noise's abilities.  These abilities include your charge shot and
    Noise Force Big Bang attack from a counter.  However, if you are hit with
    your elemental weakness, not only do you go back to your regular Noise Form
    but your Noise Gauge goes back to 0%.  Vibrant Noise is better because you
    get the abilities from your normal Noise Form and from your Vibrant Noise 
    Form.
    
    All Noise Changes have an element, a weakness, a Charge Shot and abilities in
    both normal Noise Form and Vibrant Noise Form.  There are 5 unique
    Noise Force Big Bang attacks (NFB) that each Noise gets in its Vibrant Form.
    Also after fighting several battles with a certain Noise, you can get an
    Ability Wave after battle.  These are usually better than the variations you
    find elsewhere in the game and is a one-time-only thing.  There is a counter
    that keeps track of how many fights you have with one Noise.  You can do some
    fights with one Noise and come back and finish it later if you switch to
    another Noise.  Each ability generally takes about 100-250 battles.
    
    The version you have also plays a role in the Noise Change you get.
    Below I will describe in detail all Noise Changes categorized by the version
    they "belong" in or are more common in.  You can get all Noise Changes in
    both versions.

    Gained Abilities:
      -Super Armor/700        (250 battles)
    
    Strategy:
      -Taurus Noise is great at offense.  The +50 attack bonus can easily
        be used effectively.  Having a +Grass Panel ability should make
        the Heat Cannon create up to 4 Grass Panels that could be used to
        multiply the attack of fire cards.  The +50 attack bonus turns into
        +100 creating a very powerful attack.  Unfortunately there are no
        good rapid fire attacks so the attack bonus goes almost to waste.
        But Super Armor is a nice bonus and Atomic Blazer is the strongest
        NFB and can easily be doubled to 800 damage!

    -Rogue Noise-
    __________________________________________________________
    
    Rogue Noise is unlike all the other Noises.  This Noise can only be obtained
    by having no Real Brothers registered.  That includes Opponent Noises.
    You must have empty brother slots and get into a WARNING battle for a
    Noise Change.  Rogue Noise is easily available to both versions and is a very
    powerful stand-alone Noise.  However, if you decide to change Noises from
    Rogue Noise or add a Brother, you will lose Rogue Noise!  The only way to get
    it back is to find another battle and hope to get the change again.
    Even the Noism in Astro Wave 1 won't change you back.  Be careful.
    
    
    Element:
      -None
    
    Weakness:
      -None
    
    Charge Attack:
      -Double-strength Buster Shot
    
    Abilities:

      -EM Barrier at the start of the second turn and on.
        Protects against one attack.
    
    Vibrant Noise Abilities:
      -Non-dimming, non-elemental attack cards paralyze on hit
      -Break opponent's Lock-On in PvP battles
    
    NFB:
      None
    
    Gained Abilities:
      -Reflect/50             (100 battles)
      -First Aura/400         (200 battles)
    
    Strategy:
      -Since Rogue Noise has a very generous power-up to sword attacks, it is
        ideal to use many sword attacks.  The best choice would be the
        Sword Fighter series because these are fast, rapid sword attacks that
        can easily pile on damage and raise Noise.  A folder based mainly on
        non-elemental attacks and swords would be the best way to go for
        Rogue Noise.  However, being forced to fight alone it would be
        slightly harder to fight effectively using other elements or
        support from others.  This also means you will have very low Link Power.

    -Noise Force Big Bang Attacks-
    __________________________________________________________
    
    There are 5 unique Noise Force Big Bang attacks you can get by landing a
    counter hit while in Vibrant Noise Form.  1 per element and 1 non-elemental
    NFB.  There are White Cards that have a NFB in them but these are usually
    very weak versions.  These very powerful attacks can easily turn a battle
    around if you happen to get one.

    Multi-Noise Form
    __________________________________________________________
    
    Each Noise has its own unique abilities but if you have Real Brothers
    registered through Wi-Fi or got an Opponent Noise through random Wi-Fi
    battles, you can combine the powers of your current Noise Change with
    a friend's Noise Change in a Multi-Noise Form!
    
    There is a tutorial in the game but I'll go over it quickly.  When you have a
    Brother Card or Opponent Noise and it is turned on in the folder, then when
    you get it in battle you have the choice to use their Roulette.  The roulette
    lets you use one of your friend's White Cards and sometimes one of the Mega
    or Giga Cards their using.  Seleting Multi-Noise will let you use their
    Noise Change with yours by combing powers.
    
    Suppose you are Corvus Noise and Multi-Noise with Ophiuca Noise.  Now in
    battle the two powers are combined and your Noise Gauge turns to 50%.
    
    Corvus x Ophiuca
    This new form puts Ophiuca Noise's abilities on top of your current.
    So now you have immunity to Black Holes, HP bugs, Poison Panels, Blind and
    Confusion.  Normal attacks also confuse enemies.  While abilities stack, 
    attacks don't.  Your Charge Attack and NFB change to the Noise you
    Multi-Noised with.  In this case, the Charge Attack is now Wood Shot and the
    NFB is Elemental Cyclone.  Even your weakness changes which is very important
    depending on your sitiuation.  Also, using another Multi-Noise will change
    your form to your current Noise x the new one.  Plus it also makes the Noise
    Gauge 50%.  There's no Triple-Noise so use what you have wisely!
    
    On Wi-Fi, if you defeat an opponent with a Noise, you will get their Opponent
    Noise in the results screen.  You can only have up to 6 Opponent Noises saved
    at the same time.  Opponent Noises are saved in your items collection.
    Push A on it to register it in your BrotherBand.  These work like any other
    Brother.  In battle, you can Multi-Noise with it or use their White Cards.
    Unfortunately, you can't check what White Card set their using without trying
    it first.  Sometimes you can even get their Mega or Giga cards in the roulette.
    Of course, real Brothers are always better because you get Link Power.
    Opponent Noises do not update and do not affect the person you got it from.
    Rouge Noise does not drop Opponent Noise cards.

    Finalized Form Info |
    ___________________;
    
    Unique to both versions is the Finalized Form.  This form isn't formally
    explained in the game and most of it is left to the player to figure out.
    
    When you reach over 200% Noise and enter the Custom Screen, a pop-up appears
    letting you know taht you can access the Meteor Server.  Doing so puts away
    your current cards and presents you with powerful new Meteor Server cards.
    Each version has a different variety of cards and no cards turn gray or
    hide under other cards.  Picking OK will remove your current Noise's
    abilities and replace it with your Finalized Form.  Both forms have different
    abilities and last for 3 turns.  You must use this carefully and when the time
    is right because your Noise Gauge goes back to 0% when you Finalize.
    And Finalizing is only allowed once per battle.
    
    Depending on your Noise percentage, you will get to access a different level
    of the Meteor Server before Finalizing.  The higher the Noise, the better the
    cards.  Max is Level 11.
    
    200%-249%    Level 1
    250%-299%    Level 2
    300%-349%    Level 3
    350%-399%    Level 4
    400%-499%    Level 5
    500%-599%    Level 6
    600%-699%    Level 7
    700%-799%    Level 8
    800%-899%    Level 9
    900%-998%    Level 10
    999%         Level 11
    
    It is possible to reach 999% Noise without cheats.  And it is even possible
    to go beyond that.  The Gauge will freeze at 999% if you go over it and so
    you can use the cards of Level 11.  It is important to note that even if you
    reach a certain Noise percentage in your Finalized Form that your folder
    won't update itself.  So sometimes it's smart to hold back for better cards.
    
    The cards you get vary if you're using Black Ace or Red Joker.
    Here is what each form tends to get in its Meteor Server folder.
    Higher Noise, better cards.  That includes GA cards and NFB cards.

      Elemental Cyclone
      Dyna Wave

    All finalized forms have no Charge Attack and and get their
    Noise Force Big Bang through a counter.  Because the previous
    Noise's abilities are not effective, your element is none.
    Buster is changed to a rapid buster with maxed levels.
    There is a 3 turn limit.  After the third turn, you return to your
    normal Noise Form with 0% on the Noise Gauge and your folder where
    you left off.
