    DISCLAIMER: THIS FAQ/WALKTHROUGH CONTAINS SPOILERS.  NONE OF THEM ARE MARKED,
    YOU CANNOT SKIP THROUGH THEM.  BE FOREWARNED!!! ALSO, THIS IS NOT, I REPEAT,
    NOT A SPEED FAQ.  THIS FAQ FOCUSES ON DETAIL AND EFFICIENY WHENEVER POSSIBLE.
    
    NOTE: This is written for normal mode.  Easy mode doesn't need a guide as
    much, but there are more items, like in the BUNKROOM there is more ammo.
    All items give double the ammo, I think, and everything is easier to kill.
    I played through it once and had maximum handgun ammo for both characters at
    the end of the game.  Enough said.  Hard mode... in future I may add info
    on hard mode, but if you've gotten that far, I'd believe you to be self-
    reliant.  So far, I've seen no first-aid sprays.
    
    In the game, easy saves are labelled in green, normal saves in white, and
    hard mode saves in red.

    =  01: VERSION INFO  =
    ======================
    
    v 0.8
    Not a public release.  It was completed 6/25/03, and contained walkthrough,
    puzzle solutions, and boss strategies.
    
    v 0.9
    Not a public release.  It was completed 6/28/03, and contained the intro,
    transcripts, unanswered questions, FAQ, and contact info.
    
    v 1.0
    First public release, completed 9/24/03.  Added TOC / disclaimer, version
    info, tactics, enemies, weapons, item list, future updates, and, final notes.
    Yippee.
    
    v 1.01
    
    Forgot a few small things.  Added a little to tactics and put in a section
    for the rewards for beating the game quickly enough.  Other edits were
    numerous and small.
    
    v 1.02
    
    Oops.  I hadn't anticipated for someone accidentally sending Billy through
    a part where I had suggested Rebecca in the walkthrough, and got my first
    frantic e-mail asking if they had to start the game over.  Fixed that by
    adding a way around it just before where the characters would have split.
    This way takes longer, and I don't endorse it, but it works.  This section
    is labeled and can be found easily by using the find function and searching
    for BILLY METHOD.  Added some people who are being given props for hosting
    this.  Also the COMPLETED thing in the the TOC is now more of an UPDATED
    thing.  With plentiful 0s.  Wooha.  (Minor touch-ups elsewhere).
    
    v 1.03
    
    Ack.  A minor update indeed, though I promise to get to the Leech Hunter guide,
    except the herbs seem to change with your costumes, so it could prove to be a
    time-consuming endeavor.  There have been a number of questions added to the
    FAQ, some of them may spark debate though I don't mean to drag up old arguments.
    There have also been a few minor revisions based off some oversights mentioned
    to me in e-mails, they are small, but entirely legitimate.  Also, it's worth
    noting that I'm currently working on a guide for the GameCube incarnation of
    Resident Evil: CVX.  That'll be done sooner or later, hopefully sooner.  231k.
    (Edit: Yeah, it's done.)
    
    v 1.1
    
    Months, and SEVERAL completed guides later, I've come back to this.  File
    transcripts are now in uniform format with every other guide I've done (also
    cleared up a bunch of spelling errors that no one called me on), AND I finally
    got bored enough to clear Leech Hunter, all five ways.  Other things have been
    changed too.  Completed 10/19/05, 279k.  Still, probably not the final release.
    The location names have been feeling a little clunky to me, and I think that
    there's more to be said about weapons and enemies.

    =  02: INTRODUCTION  =
    ======================
    
    "JULY 23, 1998
    Raccoon Forest 20:17
    
    'A mid-western town in America: Raccoon City.'
    
    'A solitary island far off in the sea: Rock Fort Island.'
    
    'An island that would become the second Racoon City: Sheena Island.'
    
    'There are still many unanswered questions about these seemingly unrelated yet
    intensely traumatic events.'
    
    'Though it is believed the international enterprise, Umbrella was somehow
    involved, little is known as to the origin of this faceless corporation.'
    
    'When was it established...?'
    
    'By whom?'
    
    'And how was the T-Virus created?'
    
    'To uncover the truth, we must delve deeper into the events which transpired in
    the beginning... before the mansion incident...'"
    
    ...............................................................................
    Resident Evil 0 sets out in an attempt to answer these questions, and others
    raised about Rebecca Chambers' involvement in the series, by explaining what
    happened before the larger-scale outbreaks in later REs.  Originally, the game
    was planned for the Nintendo 64, and it was strongly hinted through RE2's
    Ex-Files that Billy Coen would be involved somehow.  This game, like all RE
    games have, answers a few key questions while introducing new characters and
    concepts (and enemies), while raising a few more questions of its own.
    ...............................................................................
    
    "2 HOURS LATER
    Above Raccoon Forest
    
    'It began as a simple investigation of some bizarre murders in the suburbs of
    Raccoon City.'
    
    'Nothing in our training could have ever prepared us for the nightmare that
    ensued.'
    
    'We never stood a chance...'"
    
    =================
    =  03: TACTICS  =
    =================
    
    In all RE games, your ultimate goal is survival, but there are certain things
    that will make your survival a lot easier.
    
     -----------------
    |KNOW THE CONTROLS|
     -----------------
    
    As a default, the controls in RE are:
    
    CONTROL STICK: Character movement
    
    C-STICK: Partner movement (hard to control, will immediately return to CPU
             upon release, only if in same room)
    
    A: Action.  Open doors, pick up items, examine things on screen, climb objects,
       get down from objects, select (in item screen),  fire (with weapon ready)
    
    B: Run (when used with control stick)
    
    Y: Item menu toggle
    
    X: Character switch (in game and in item screen)
    
    Z: Map
    
    Start: Toggle between solo and team movement
    
    L: Change target / realign shot (with weapon readied)
    
    R: Ready weapon
    
     -------------
    |CONSERVE AMMO|
     -------------
    
    This generally can be ignored in easy mode, but for normal mode and hard mode,
    this is more crucial.  Plan ahead, or read ahead in the guide.  If you aren't
    coming back to an area and you can run from an enemy, don't bother with them.
    Also remember this in cases where risk outweighs reward.  Even if you can't
    outmaneuver an enemy, if you aren't coming back then you can at least knock
    them down and complete your task while they're getting back up.  Later in the
    game, with weapons like the sub-machine gun, it may be smarter to tap the A
    button instead of holding it down, to fire in short controlled bursts.
    
     ----------------
    |HEAL RESPONSIBLY|
     ----------------
    
    The health spectrum for RE0 is generally as follows:
    
    GREEN:  100-76% health
    Everything is fine and dandy.
    
    YELLOW: 75-51% health
    Some damage taken, but otherwise fine.
    
    ORANGE: 50-26% health
    Starting to show signs of fatigue.
    
    RED: 25-1% health
    Danger area.  Could die from any attack.
    
    POISON: Varies
    Slow, but noticable decrease in health.  Remove quickly.
    
    Unlike in previous RE games, your movements are not significantly hindered
    until you reach ORANGE.  Thus you can put off healing, while still being able
    to get around your enemies.    RED is also not quite the same as in other RE,
    you do not clutch your side and limp from place to place, but your movement is
    much like it is in ORANGE.  Keep in mind that your quick turn movement is also
    slowed once you take enough damage.
    
    HEALING CHART:
    
    GREEN = 25% restore
    GREEN + GREEN = 50% restore
    GREEN + BLUE = 25% restore and antidote
    GREEN + RED = Full restore
    GREEN + GREEN + GREEN = Full restore
    GREEN + GREEN + BLUE = 50% restore and antidote
    GREEN + RED + BLUE = Full restore and antidote
    BLUE = Antidote
    RED = Useless, on its own
    FIRST-AID SPRAY = Full Restore
    GREEN CHEMICAL = Antidote
    
    Poison status should not occur often, considering there are only five total
    creatures in the game capable of performing such a feat.  However, heal this
    effect from you as soon as possible as the consequences can be rather nasty.
    If you've used up all of the four blue herbs in the game already and have
    STILL somehow managed to get poisoned, here's a neat trick:  Find green
    capsule and use the green chemical instead.  While all the other chemicals
    are useless on their own, in theory, this works, and it doesn't even take
    up item space.  This could potentially be very useful in the Leech Hunter
    game.
    
    I generally recommend carrying at least one herb around at all times.
    
     ------------
    |AIM PROPERLY|
     ------------
    
    All creatures in this game move on a field, not in linear tracks.  Therefore,
    you should realign your shot by hitting L when your weapon is up (using R).
    This helps not only when zombies are wandering about, but it's all but crucial
    in boss fights like the centipede and the giant bat.  It not only guarentees
    that your shot will hit, but it also realigns with the enemies weak or central
    area, making your shot hit harder.  Don't ignore your ability to aim up or
    down either.  While you will hit a lower enemy when shooting straight ahead in
    this game, it is far more efficient to shoot down at them.  Same applies to
    higher enemies, or enemies with higher weak points.  By shooting up with your
    shotgun at a close zombie, you can decapitate him instead of firing more
    shots into its gut.
    
     ---------
    |USE RANGE|
     ---------
    
    Some weapons are designed to fire certain distances, and others have the same
    power from any distance.  For that reason, avoid putting yourself in danger.
    If you're using a handgun, don't wait for them to get too close, but if you
    have a shotgun (which also has the potential for knockback), maximize the
    power by waiting a little.  With the grenade launcher and the molotov, be
    certain you'll be able to hit your target with the range you've alloted.  Be
    wary of obstacles as well, particularly when using the molotovs, your aim
    can be blocked more easily than you would think.  Remember that to shoot
    faster, continue tapping the A button instead of holding it down.
    
     ----------------------------
    |KNOW THYSELF / THINE PARTNER|
     ----------------------------
    
    While either character is capable of using the hookshot, in other areas of
    the game you have to use one character over the other.  Rebecca can mix
    chemicals in her unique mixing set and can combine herbs, but is weak in
    strength and stamina.  Billy can move large objects, aims better in combat, has
    better stamina, and can use the (mostly useless) lighter, but cannot mix herbs
    or store any sort of chemical.  Know that when choosing who to send into any
    situation.  Don't be afraid to send one in alone if you're only running around
    an enemy.  In combat, work with your partner, not against them.  It's more
    effective to shoot in an alternating pattern rather than both simulataneously
    firing.  Using effective weapon combinations can also ease the pressures of
    battle.  Keep in mind that after the battle is done, if your partner is out of
    ammo in their gun, the CPU will automatically reload if they have the ammo to
    do so.  This can save little intervals of time throughout the game, but as we
    all know, the little bits of time add up in the end.
    
     ----------------
    |KNOW THINE ENEMY|
     ----------------
    
    Whether you're running from an enemy or fighting it, be aware of its attack
    patterns.  Certain enemies (zombies, particularly) can be faked out and
    tricked into lunging at where you were while you run away or prepare to stun
    them out of their attack.  If you can think faster than your enemy, you won't
    always have to attack faster.  As a final note, it doesn't fit anywhere else,
    in RE0 if you are attacked when going through a reload animation, the game
    will still recognize that you have reloaded.
    
     ----------
    |PLAN AHEAD|
     ----------
    
    Know what pieces go where and try to minimize menu time.  RE0 comes equipped
    with a USE function when you pick up your items.  Combine items this way,
    saving yourself time and inventory space.  And if you have to reload soon and
    already have your inventory open, or you need to reload faster than an enemy
    will give you a chance for, do it using the inventory.  This can save time and
    possibly health.
    
    Also, avoid carrying around unnecessary items.  By this, I typically mean blue
    herbs (you have to work to get poisoned in this game) and ink ribbons, which
    can be found near any new typewriter anyway.
    
     -----
    |GOALS|
     -----
    
    With any ranked game, you're obviously going to aim for a high rank most of the
    time.  The higher and faster, the better.  If you want to know what times will
    grant you which rewards, consult section 07 REWARDS to figure out what you're
    getting yourself into.  Time yourself, if need be.  Keep track of how long it
    takes to do certain things, and don't forget to save.  If you save and it takes
    longer than you wanted to in one part, you can reload and take another run
    through it.  Beats playing through the whole game again.
    
    NOTE: You can only get rankings by beating the game in NORMAL MODE or higher.
    
    =================
    =  04: ENEMIES  =
    =================
    
    ZOMBIES
    
    The bread and butter of this and every other RE game.  These fellows, with the
    exception of the unique zombie, are rather slow and easily outmaneuvered.  They
    have two major attacks, biting you and vomitting.  The puke does minimum damage
    and isn't used often.  Biting does more noticable damage, sometimes knocking
    you down a level.  Button-mash and flail the control stick around when they
    grab you to avoid too much damage.  Zombies die when they fall to the floor and
    blood pools underneath them.  They are smarter than other enemies in that they
    may fake death so they can gnaw on your leg as you pass, in which case you will
    eventually stomp them to end it.  Point down and plug them if they don't look
    dead enough.  For small groups of zombies, the handgun is ideal.  After you
    knock them down, they get back up while holding their head down, which is a
    great chance for a brain shot.  For larger groups, you can either do a straight
    blast with a shotgun or wait until they come too close and point the shotgun up
    to decapitate all of them.  You'll find naked zombies, like in all RE games,
    at the end of the game.  These zombies are considerably more resistant to all
    types of damage.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    CERBERUS
    
    Zombie dogs.  Not common, but still a threat.  They can't run below your shot
    if you point straight out as much as in previous game.  They have three attacks
    they use against you.  The first is to run at you and jump, tearing a piece off
    as they go and then turning to run away again.  The second is to grab your arm
    and pull on it like a chew toy.  The third is to dive at you and knock you on
    the floor as you try to fight them off.  Like in all RE games, you can do a lot
    more damage if you knock them out of the air like this.  These dogs have a
    considerably larger jump distance than they did in previous games, so don't
    underestimate them. If you are caught by one, use the same evasive
    button-mashing as with zombies.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    LEECH ZOMBIES
    
    A zombie comprised of leeches and shaped like a humanoid, usually Dr. Marcus to
    start out.  Usually after fighting one for a while, it will change its
    appearance to a less human looking shape, at which point it will become much
    faster and less predicatable.  As a humanoid, its major attack is to whip at
    you with its rubbery arms.  When it does this, it will often tilt its head to
    the side, so run when you see that.  This attack does considerable damage.  As
    a leech monster, it has this same attack, but it will not give you any warning.
    Its other attack as a monster is to grab you and spray acid on you (as it seems
    to try to eat you).  All you can do then is button mash and hope for the best.
    This also does a lot of damage, and it recovers quickly from being shoved off,
    so you'll likely have to do it multiple times.  If you kill one of these with
    conventional weapons, you'll have to rip off no less than two chunks from it,
    and when it is reduced to just the legs, it will puff up and explode, usually
    bringing you to critical damage if you're nearby.  For this reason, use acid
    and fire (explosives) when you are fighting them as much as possible, since
    they merely sink to the ground and disintegrate if you do this.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    LEECHES
    
    Usually the remnants of a leech zombie, though in later areas they are
    scattered all over in no real pattern at all, unless a leech zombie or some
    such thing was dropping them.  Early in the game, these things can be rather
    vicious and will often climb on top of you.  They do small amounts of damage,
    so just throw them off like you do everything else and you should be fine.  To
    kill these things, you'll usually step on them as they're below you, though it
    is possible (though wasteful) to shoot them.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    PLAGUE CRAWLERS
    
    A new enemy, large creatures resembling irate grasshoppers or locusts (the
    lone locust of the apocolypse, er, sorry).  They have three primary attacks.
    One is to run up to you and slash at your leg.  Another is to dive on top of
    you like the cerberi do and try to eat your face.  The third attack is one I
    didn't even see until I played through a few times, but they can do a flying
    headbutt into your gut for a small amount of damage.  You can shoot them out of
    this attack much like with the cerberi, and do a greater amount of damage than
    you normally can.  The leg slash is by far their most dangerous attack.  To
    kill them (they are incredibly hard to avoid or ignore), aim down at them with
    a shotgun or hunting gun if they get too close.  Two shots usually does it.
    Otherwise, fire away with your gun, but do be aware that they can do a lot of
    damage quickly, especially since they usually come in groups.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    CROWS
    
    Also, a common Resident Evil sight.  Their only attack is to divebomb you and
    claw at your head as you try to fight them off.  Usually they are somewhat
    docile unless you do something stupid (say, shoot them, like I do) to rile
    them up.  If you must kill them, use the handgun and plug away when you have a
    clear shot, but otherwise, it's a waste, just run away from them.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    SPIDERS
    
    Unlike common spiders, these are grotesquely large and have no interest at all
    in web making.  They are, however, capable of climbing up walls.  Their two
    attacks are to spit poison at you, which will do gradual damage until you clear
    it, and to charge at you, rear up, and attack your legs.  They can also drop
    poison on you from above while climbing the walls, so be conscious of that when
    you run underneath them.  To dispose of them, you would usually want to use a
    shotgun blast or two, or regular grenade rounds.  There are only five of them
    in the game, though, and if you don't feel like killing them, they aren't worth
    it.  They are easily outmaneuvered.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    ELIMINATORS
    
    Despite their clearly threatening name, elimimnators are medium sized monkeys
    that aren't all that troublesome.  According to one of the files, they are
    mostly blind, and find their enemies based off of sound.  Unfortunately, most
    of the time when you run into them you do not have the luxury of stealthy
    movement.  They can also jump to incredible heights and spring off walls as
    they chase you.  This is also how they attack you, jumping at you and slashing,
    though I assume they could jump on you as well.  With their speed and damage
    capabilities, it's really best to kill them as soon as you can.  Use the
    shotgun or regular grenades to take them out.  After they fall, if they are
    truly dying, they'll push themselves up a little and let out one last cry.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    HUNTERS
    
    An RE favorite.  In RE0, these fellows strongly resemble men in frog suits.
    The hunters have also been toned down a little, they don't work well in groups
    and sometimes are oblivious to your presence even after you kill their buddy.
    They are, still, just as fast and dangerous.  They can slash you or jump and do
    the same for medium damage, or if you are already rather wounded, they can
    decapitate you entirely with one fell swoop.  These hunters aren't quite as
    defensive as they are in other REs and seem to have trouble avoiding shots.  To
    kill them (you WILL want to), use your grenade launcher (any rounds) or your
    magnum.  Another method of dealing with them is a little less safe, and should
    probably be reserved for Leech Hunter only.  If you have both characters with
    their handguns equipped, you can stand at a distance and fire one round after
    another, timing it so you're firing when your partner isn't.  Hunters are
    knocked out of their attacks rather easily in RE0, which is why this works.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    BATS
    
    These are new creatures to the RE series, but they only appear with the Giant
    Bat boss at the beginning of Disk 2.  There also seem to be an infinite number
    of them so there's no point in killing them unless to temporarily clear out
    some unnecessary targets.  They will swoop and tear at you like crows, but are
    significantly weaker than their counterparts.  You can't avoid hitting them
    easily, but they're torn to shreds in every hit.  Ignore them, either by
    realligning your shot manually or automatically.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    LURKERS
    
    Giant frog creatures.  By far, the most dangerous of the new enemies.  Luckily,
    they only appear in the very last part of the game.  These things will grab you
    with their tongue, then drag you over, possibly knocking you unconscious in the
    process, and eat you.  No amount of button-mashing can save you from this, near
    as I can figure, you're as good as dead.  Run, as soon as you see one, and
    don't stop running until you get to a door or a ladder, but if you must kill
    them, use the magnum and be done with it quickly.
    *******************************************************************************

    KNIFE
    
    The butter knife of RE2 is long gone.  Unfortunately, this one still sucks.
    Unless you are running out of ammo, which you really shouldn't be (and even
    then, it's not terribly difficult to dodge until you can find some more),
    ditch this and forget about it as soon as possbile.  Except when playing hard
    mode.  I only recommend using this in tandem with a partner who has a gun.
    They knock 'em back / down, you slash them at a distance.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    HANDGUN
    
    The primary weapon for most of the game.  Holds 15 rounds, and fires with a
    good range.  A very reliable weapon, plenty of ammo, and continues to have its
    uses until the end.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    CUSTOM HANDGUN
    
    More dangerous than the handgun, as the number of headshots increases
    dramatically.  Apparently, it also focuses on the weakpoints of other enemies
    with more often, reducing ammo consumption overall.  If it comes down to
    ditching one of the handguns late in the game, you have to keep this one.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    HUNTING GUN
    
    Your first taste of shotgun weapons.  Doesn't have a great range, but has
    decent power in close encounters.  Fires and recovers at a slow rate, and
    also doesn't reload quickly.  On top of that, it only holds two shells.  Ditch
    this as soon as you find the shotgun.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    SHOTGUN
    
    The big brother of the hunting gun.  An overall improvement, it seems to have
    slightly better range, reload time, and recovery, with a noticable increase in
    power from before.  Can now hold seven shells, which makes large scale battles
    a lot less intense.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    MOLOTOV COCKTAILS
    
    These puppies can do a decent amount of fire damage to a group of enemies, but
    it takes so long to throw them that you really won't want to use them on
    anything that can attack fast or frequently.  The only place that they really
    shine is when used against leech zombies, where they should always be the
    weapon of choice.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    GRENADE LAUNCHER
    
    A "versatile" weapon equipped with three types of ammo.  In previous games,
    what ammo you used in what situation would dictate whether you survived or not.
    In this game, the ammo seems to have the same power all around, just different
    animations.  The exception to this is the power of fire on leech zombies, but
    you still get the same basic effect from acid.  Not nearly as useful as it was
    before, and item space really doesn't allow for it anymore.  What was once a
    necessity is now just a little luxury, and a bit of a pain at that.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    MAGNUM
    
    The big gun.  This can take out most things in one shot, and has a decent
    recovery and reload time.  Ammo for this isn't easy to find, though, so save it
    for hunters or bosses whenever you can.  Otherwise, you'll be in serious danger
    later on.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    SUB MACHINE GUN (SPECIAL)
    
    This is much like the assault rifle in RE3.  While it is more efficient at
    mowing zombies down, it also eats ammo very quickly.  I don't think that this
    would be a big problem, though, since in Leech Hunter it's easy to unlock extra
    ammo for it (I just haven't done so yet).  Another way to get around that would
    be to fire in short bursts and hope for the best.  Overall, it provides an
    interesting alternative to handguns with the potential for more.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    ROCKET LAUNCHER (SPECIAL)
    
    The Rocket Launcher, is basically a glorified afterthought.  Every RE game has
    one, why shouldn't RE0?  That said, it looks like the grenade launchers found
    in previous games and behaves like a magnum.  Shot to the gut makes a head pop
    and a little fire spurt out, but nothing impressive.  Weak.  Strongest weapon
    in the game, and nice blast radius, but very weak on appearance.  It fires
    quickly, but prepare yourself for knockback as you fire.
    *******************************************************************************
    
    MAGNUM REVOLVER (SPECIAL)
    
    You have to go through the semi-arduous task of grabbing 90-99 leech charms to
    unlock this, but it rivals the Rocket Launcher on a lot of levels.  The
    hand cannon fires a lot quicker, produces the same effect (head popping), and
    the only drawback is the kick on it, which you'd suffer with either weapon.
    It seems to have a bit of range to it as well, and you can usually pick
    something off even without a direct hit.

    *******************************************************************************
    Part One: THE ECLIPTIC EXPRESS (TRAIN)
    "The door to safety is shut.  There is no turning back..."
    *******************************************************************************
    
    NOTE: At the end of this section, you will lose access to the train.  If you
    want an item in the train before this happens, but don't have the space to
    carry it at that time, pick it up, then leave it somewhere else.  Trust me.
    
    **BLUE CAR**
    
    After watching (or skipping, as the case may be) the intro you'll end up in
    this room.  Turn to your left (your left being your character's left, and
    directions will be given like this) and head through the door at the end.
    
    **BROWN CAR**
    ENEMIES: THREE ZOMBIES
    
    As you enter a cut scene will start, and you'll find yourself in the middle of
    the room.  There will be one ZOMBIE where you were headed and two behind you.
    Take out the one behind so you can use the extra space, then take out the other
    two.  It's early in the game so these ones are easier.  Continue to the door in
    the direction where you were originally headed and where the single ZOMBIE was.
    
    **HALLWAY CAR**
    
    Head forward and take the first door on your right.
    
    **BROWN PASSENGER ROOM**
    
    There are some HANDGUN BULLETS next to the bed, and a FILE on the desk.  Parts
    of the file will hint at how to handle an upcoming boss, as well as the PLAGUE
    CRAWLERS you'll be introduced to later, and generally most insect based
    enemies.  Grab both of these and leave.  (Also, there is an INK RIBBON in the
    coat pocket of the jacket, but there isn't a whole lot of point in stocking up
    on these.)
    
    **HALLWAY CAR**
    
    Take the next room on the right.
    
    **TRAIN SAVE ROOM**
    
    RE vets will recognize this as a place of safety based off the music.  There's
    a FILE on the bunk and GREEN HERB next to it.  There's aslo an INK RIBBON on
    the desk near the entrance, but I wouldn't save just yet.  Leave.
    
    **HALLWAY CAR**
    ENEMIES: TWO CERBERI
    
    Turn right around the corner and down to the end.  There you should find a
    locked door and a dead body holding a TRAIN KEY (examine it to turn it into the
    DINING KEY), now we need to go back to the BLUE CAR and use it on the door on
    the other end.  A cut scene will follow, you'll be introduced to Billy Coen,
    he'll leave and Edward Dewey will crash through one of the windows, after a cut
    scene, a CERBERUS will jump through the window after him.  Take it out, then
    continue on.  Another CERBERUS will jump through the window, but you should
    make quick work of it.  If you check Edward's corpse, he'll have some HANDGUN
    BULLETS.  Make your way back to the BROWN CAR.
    
    **BROWN CAR**
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    You can make short work of these two stooges or run right through since they're
    on the sides.  It's up to you, I'm a little trigger happy, personally.
    
    **BLUE CAR**
    ENEMIES: ONE ZOMBIE, IF you wait too long
    
    Short cut scene with your radio and Enrico on the other end.  Use the DINING
    KEY at the door, and go through.
    
    **LOWER DINING CAR/KITCHEN**
    
    Another cut scene with Billy.  He'll block the way back to the BLUE CAR.  If
    you try to go around the staircase, you'll find that the door is automatic and
    won't open, so grab the FILE (which will also explain that) and go up the
    stairs.
    
    **DINING AREA**
    ENEMIES: ONE LEECH ZOMBIE
    
    There isn't anything to pick up here immediately.  Walk forward a bit and
    you'll be treated to yet another (bizarre) cut scene.  What just happened,
    you'll figure out later, right now focus on the LEECH ZOMBIE.  You'll come to
    know this music all too well...
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |+[SUB-BOSS: LEECH ZOMBIE]+                                                   |
    |Pretty simple to beat, keep shooting at him until he cocks his head to the   |
    |side, then run fast in the opposite direction and continue fighting after    |
    |you've avoided the blow.  Between ten and fifteen shots will do him in, but  |
    |make sure you keep at a safe distance or else he'll use his rubbery arms to  |
    |tear you a whole set of new ones.  However, you don't NEED, to fight him, you|
    |can just run towards the stairs and it will have the same effect.  Just fight|
    |him for practice, if you think you need it.                                  |
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Another cut scene will start, Billy and Rebecca will agree to work together,
    but the leeches will return to the Man in the White Robes, and the train will
    start up again.  It wouldn't be a mystery otherwise.  You'll get a FILE after
    all that.
    
    Ditch Billy's KNIFE, it's mostly useless.  Now that you've joined up with your
    partner, you'll have to choose who you want to ditch for the time being.  Put
    them at lead (they'll be referred to as the PARTNER character, though) and
    agree to split up, then run down to where the LEECH ZOMBIE was and go up the
    ladder, in keeping with the advice the previous file gave you.
    
    **DINING CAR ROOF**
    CHARACTER: PARTNER
    
    Make your way up to the end (you can't run or quick-turn up here) and around
    the hole, you'll find some cables that need reconnecting, do so and you'll have
    another cut scene (this makes even less sense, and is never explained, but
    maybe the gel is just the leeches shapshifting) and you'll get knocked down
    that hole.
    
    **DUMB WAITER ROOM**
    CHARACTER: PARTNER
    
    There's a TRAIN KEY (CONDUCTOR'S KEY), some HANDGUN BULLETS, and a GREEN HERB
    here, but sadly, the door is jammed.  Send the CONDUCTOR'S KEY down the dumb
    waiter and switch to your other character.
    
    **DINING AREA**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Your partner's on the other end of the locked door, but you can't get through
    either, so go down the stairs.
    
    **LOWER DINING CAR/KITCHEN**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Turn the stairs and go down the path you didn't head down before, the door will
    slide aside and you'll be in the kitchen.  Turn right around the corner and the
    dumb waiter is at the end.  Take the CONDUCTOR'S KEY and head back to the CAR
    HALLWAY.
    
    **BLUE CAR**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES (ONE, IF you waited for / removed the other last time)
    
    Deal with the ZOMBIES as you see fit and head to the end.
    
    **BROWN CAR**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    ENEMIES: ONE ZOMBIE
    
    There's a new ZOMBIE here, which means if you didn't kill the two ZOMBIES the
    last time, there will be three to deal with.  Make your way to the other side.
    
    **HALLWAY CAR**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Run past the two doors we've been through before.  You may have noticed another
    locked door past the luggage heap last time.  Well, now you have the key.
    
    **CONDUCTOR'S OFFICE*
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    There's a MAP to your immediate right and a RED HERB and a GREEN HERB in front
    of you (you can mix them if you're Rebecca, Billy can't seem to figure them
    out), you might want to put off the herbs for a while.  Head left and there's a
    FILE on the floor.  In the closet nearby, there is the BRIEFCASE, but again,
    put that off.  Now go back to the wall with the MAP and press the shiny red
    button.  A ladder will pop out...
    
    **TRAIN BAR**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    There isn't much of interest here, so walk around the bar and you'll hear a cut
    scene with some kind of animal screaming.  It doesn't matter quite yet, so run
    down to the end through this long room (you'll learn to recognize such rooms as
    Boss Rooms in the future).
    
    **UPPER BROWN CAR WEST**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Grab the ICE PICK off the table next to you.  You may be thinking about running
    back to the LOWER DINING CAR/KITCHEN to send it through the dumb waiter, but
    put that thought aside for a moment and go down the hall through the door to
    your right.  But first make sure you have enough room in your inventory, three
    to four spaces, specifically.
    
    **HUNTING GUN ROOM**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Take the HUNTING GUN to your left on the couch, this will be crucial soon.
    Take the HANDGUN BULLETS and the SHOTGUN SHELLS (highly recommended) too, and
    the FIRST-AID SPRAY, if you need it (I doubt it).  Ignore the INK RIBBON on
    the floor.
    
    **UPPER BROWN CAR WEST**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Make your way to the TRAIN BAR.
    
    **TRAIN BAR**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Run forward for a bit and the strange screeching will start again, so will the
    cut scenes.  BOSS TIME!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |+[BOSS FIGHT #1: SCORPION]+                                                  |
    |+[DIFFICULTY: VERY EASY]+                                                    |
    |This guy isn't too hard, but I warn you, it'll take all of your newfound     |
    |firepower and a few handgun blasts before it decides to lay down and die.    |
    |Just like the PASSENGER'S DIARY hinted at, the key here is to stay close to  |
    |it, point down, and fire a blast in its face, but wait for it to come to you.|
    |It attacks if you go on the offensive, so there's no point in coming to it.  |
    |Your blasts will shock it backwards, keeping you safe anyway.  Just beware   |
    |that from time to time, it covers its face with its claws and charges at you.|
    |If it begins to do that, just quick turn and get out of there because your   |
    |shot won't do as much when it's covered.  Continue the pattern until it dies.|
    |On occasion, it'll do some claw swipes at you when in close range. It can    |
    |also impale you on its tail if you're too low on life, but that shouldn't    |
    |happen.  Once you kill the scorpion, the music will change, but stay away    |
    |from it until it is lying completely on the floor.  It can still do damage to|
    |you when it's flailing around.                                               |
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Ditch any excess SHOTGUN AMMO, should you have any (don't worry about it, it
    won't matter).  After the fight the TRAIN BAR is mostly wrecked.  Run towards
    the opposite end, taking the PANEL OPENER as you go, and take the ladder back
    down to the CONDUCTOR'S CAR.
    
    **CONDUCTOR'S OFFICE**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Heal up here if you didn't grab the herbs before.  Ditch the HUNTING GUN, you
    won't need to come back for it either, trust me on this.  Open the closet to
    get the BRIEFCASE (check out the poster, "Go to travel on the Next World", I
    dig it) and go back to the LOWER DINING CAR/KITCHEN
    
    **HALLWAY CAR**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Still nothing going on in here.  Save if you feel like it (first door on the
    left on your way back).
    
    **BROWN CAR**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Surprisingly quiet.  Continue onward.
    
    **BLUE CAR**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Nothing going on in here either, move on.
    
    **LOWER DINING CAR/KITCHEN**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Run to the end of the kitchen and use your PANEL OPENER on the floor to your
    right on the other side of the refridgerator.  You know the routine, send
    your ICE PICK through the dumb waiter and switch characters.
    
    **DUMB WAITER ROOM**
    CHARACTER: PARTNER
    
    Take whatever else you need from here.  Remove the ICE PICK, then use it to
    unjam the door.
    
    **DINING AREA**
    CHARACTER: PARTNER
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    You don't need to exterminate the zombies from here because you won't be back.
    Head down the stairs.
    
    **LOWER DINING CAR/KITCHEN**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Join up with your partner and rearrange your ammo so it's relatively even
    (usually I give about 30 more to the main character).  Go through the hole you
    opened up.
    
    **ANIMAL CAGE CAR**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: TWO CERBERI
    
    The CERBERI will break out as soon as you get in here (near as I can figure the
    dogs were being transfered to the Umbrella facility).  Blast them, since
    there's no real way to get to where you're headed otherwise.  There are some
    SHOTGUN SHELLS, a FIRST-AID SPRAY, and a GAS TANK waiting for you when you're
    through (though I'd ignore the SHOTGUN SHELLS and the GAS TANK, for now, and
    the FIRST-AID SPRAY unless you need it).  Go to the other end of the car and
    you'll find something on the floor near one of the cages.  Pick it up using the
    character that has the BRIEFCASE, it's the GOLD RING.  Combine it with your
    BRIEFCASE and move out the door at the end.
    
    **HOOKSHOT PLATFORM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Ah yes, the HOOKSHOT, it takes up two item spaces so you'll grow to hate it
    soon.  Make some space for it with the character that has the BRIEFCASE, your
    inventory should look like this.
    
    INVENTORY:
    HANDGUN
    HANDGUN BULLETS
    BRIEFCASE
    NOTHING
    NOTHING
    NOTHING
    
    Now take the character WITHOUT the BRIEFCASE and move them over to the switch
    nearby.  Pull it, but DON'T MOVE!  Immediately switch to your other character
    (the one WITH the BRIEFCASE) and have them take the HOOKSHOT.  You'll receive a
    FILE explaining how to use it and where to go next.  Regroup, and leave.
    
    **ANIMAL CAGE CAR**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Pick up the SHOTGUN SHELLS, if you want, they make one part soon a bit easier.
    Also pick up the GAS TANK.  You'll only have to see this place once more...
    
    **LOWER DINING CAR/KITCHEN**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: ONE ZOMBIE
    
    As you're coming through here a ZOMBIE will jump out of the fridge.  This
    bugger is a bit more difficult than the other zombies, but with both characters
    firing he should find the floor rather quickly.  In the fridge, you'll find
    some EMPTY BOTTLES which you can combine with the GAS TANK to create the
    almighty MOLOTOV COCKTAILS.  Leave through the opposite end.
    
    **BLUE CAR**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    Nothing should be of notice here aside from the ZOMBIEs, but you'll find an
    interesting sight in here next time...
    
    **BROWN CAR**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Next to the entrance is a broken window, if you look through it you'll find
    part of a ladder, but you can't reach it on your own, so use the HOOKSHOT to
    get up there...
    
    **BROWN CAR ROOF**
    CHARACTER: THE ONE WITH THE BRIEFCASE AND HOOKSHOT
    
    Make your way across and you should find a hole in the roof, jump through.
    
    **BLUE PASSENGER ROOM**
    CHARACTER: THE ONE WITH THE BRIEFCASE AND HOOKSHOT
    ENEMIES: ONE ZOMBIE
    
    Kill the ZOMBIE since you're in tight quarters.  There should be a KNIFE by
    where you land, keep away from that useless thing.  Near the closet you'll find
    the JEWELRY BOX, open it up to get the SILVER RING, you should combine this
    with the BRIEFCASE, then examine it to get the BLUE KEYCARD.  Now you can get
    to the DRIVER'S COMPARTMENT of the train!  Exit the room, but before you do
    there will be a cut scene, don't worry about it....
    
    **UPPER BROWN CAR EAST**
    CHARACTER: THE ONE WITH THE BRIEFCASE AND HOOKSHOT
    ENEMIES: Bunch of stupid little LEECHES
    
    Squish the LEECHES if you feel like it, they make a satisfying crunch.  Turn to
    your left and continue down that way, you should find a GREEN HERB, so use it
    if you need it.  Go down the stairs.
    
    **BROWN CAR**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    Regroup.  After you start moving, two ZOMBIES should pop up.  Kill both of
    these jokers because you're going to have to come back through here pretty
    quickly not long from now.
    
    **HALLWAY CAR**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Head off to the save room if you feel the need.  Also grab the HUNTING GUN if
    you took the SHOTGUN SHELLS from the Cage Car, and load it up.  Not necessary,
    but can be a help.  Use your BLUE KEYCARD at the panel on the end, then toss
    it.  You'll get a cut scene that will explain a few of the train's quirks.
    Before you head on, I'd recommend rearranging the slots because you'll have to
    split up next.  I recommend giving the extra space to Rebecca because she'll
    get an extra cut scene if you use her.  Whoever you pick, your inventory should
    look like this...
    
    INVENTORY:
    HANDGUN
    HANDGUN BULLETS
    MOLTOV COCKTAIL
    HUNTING GUN (if you picked it up)
    HUNTING GUN (if you picked it up)
    NOTHING
    
    **DRIVER'S COMPARTMENT CORRIDOR**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    The two military types you saw just before in the cut scene should be dead on
    the floor here.  Creepy.  Move on to the next room.
    
    **DRIVER'S COMPARTMENT**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    A cutscene will show you of the impending doom you're facing (I swear, RE
    characters have more trouble with train rides).  Now you'll have to pick which
    character you're going to have stay behind.  So if you want the extra little
    cut scene, leave Billy.  After that's finished with, run over to where your
    other character is and near the floor is some HANDGUN BULLETS, there's also
    another box of HANDGUN BULLETS hidden under a desk next to that.  Be absolutely
    certain you take the MAGNETIC CARD next to your other character, without it,
    you'll have a long, painful trip in store.  Oh yeah, you have three and a half
    minutes.
    
    **DRIVER'S COMPARTMENT CORRIDOR**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    As you run through here, the military types will come back to life.  It isn't
    worth it.  RUN.
    
    **HALLWAY CAR**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    ENEMIES: ONE ZOMBIE
    
    You'll find both the dead train employee and Edward strangely abesent from
    here.  As you pass by the save room, you'll spot the train employee (ZOMBIE),
    so gun him down and go through.
    
    **BROWN CAR**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    ENEMIES: FOUR (!) ZOMBIES
    
    Holy crap!  This sort of thing wouldn't happen in the RE:REmake...  Anyway,
    it's hard to get through here so you'll have to clear some kind of path, in all
    honesty the more zombies you kill the better.  Use a combination of MOLTOV
    COCKTAILS and HANDGUN shots/HUNTING GUN blasts to make your way through.  I
    told you those would come in handy.
    
    **BLUE CAR**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    ENEMIES: EDWARD DEWEY ZOMBIE, ONE ZOMBIE
    
    Rebecca will get her cutscene if you took her.  Edward is a bit harder than the
    typical zombie, he'll take a few more shots to go down and may get back up
    after you've felled him.  You'll be able to tell when he's dead because the
    fellow he was snacking on will step up and come after you, but you could easily
    be on the opposite side of the room by then.
    
    **LOWER DINING CAR/KITCHEN**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    It's safe through here...
    
    **ANIMAL CAGE CAR**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Here too, although if you got munched on a bit too much I'd use the FIRST-AID
    SPRAY, the next part can be a little tricky...
    
    **HOOKSHOT PLATFORM**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Here we find one of the famed RE puzzles.... so move to your right and swipe
    the MAGNETIC CARD over the brake control...
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + [BRAKE CONTROL PUZZLE]                              +
    +                                                     +
    + There are three possible puzzles that I've seen.    +
    + I'll try to give you the solutions least complex.   +
    + 0/36 --> 9, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3               +
    + 0/67 --> 4, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7               +
    + 0/81 --> 9, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8               +
    +                                                     +
    + Following your success, you'll check in with your   +
    + partner.  They will have one of the choices above   +
    + that you didn't get, although their monitor has a   +
    + hole in it, so you won't see the sum as you add it. +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Following this you'll get another cut scene, the train will grind to a halt and
    you'll be flung from it, after another scene you'll wake up and meet with your
    partner.
    
    All in all this whole section should have taken 30 to 45 minutes.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    Part Two: MARCUS MANSION (TRAINING FACILITY)
    "Are the faint sounds of footsteps those of survivors?"
    *******************************************************************************
    
    **TRAIN WRECK ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: FOUR ZOMBIES
    
    There's no direct corrolation between the number of ZOMBIES you left alive from
    the train and the ones appearing here, so you can't alter or prevent this
    encounter.  The close quarters here can make things a little edgy so you might
    want to run to the other end of the room and stand your ground there.  Every
    item that you picked up at one point or another on the train will be scattered
    across the floor here in some way or another, so you can grab your HUNTING GUN
    if you don't have it and load up on SHOTGUN SHELLS to make this fight a lot
    less taxing on your healing supplies.  You'll probably want to take every item
    (yes, including that accursed HOOKSHOT) except the KNIFE (or two) before
    you leave so you won't have to make the trek back.
    
    **MANSION SEWER TUNNEL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Every RE game has a tunnel like this, but unlike most, there aren't any enemies
    here, so you can run to the opposite end and climb up the ladder in peace.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: NONE
    
    You'll bust out of a ladder chute here and get a cutscene that should explain a
    good portion of what's going on.  After this, drop the HOOKSHOT either in front
    of the painting or in front of the statue, you won't be needing it for a little
    while now.   Down in the lower part of the hall, there's a typewriter, along
    with some INK RIBBONS (but don't save here, not yet at least), some (much
    needed) HANDGUN BULLETS, a GREEN HERB, and a RED HERB.  Take what you need from
    here and head to the left up the staircase in front of the painting and take
    the door in front of you, slightly to the left.
    
    **BLUE STUDY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: FOUR(?) CROWS
    
    Things are quiet in here for the time being, so run forward and take the FILE
    off the table.  Turn to your left and go to the wall and you should find a desk
    after the camera angle changes.  Inside is the CRANK HANDLE, but as soon as you
    take it there will be a short cutscene and the CROWS I warned you of will fly
    through the window.  It would be a waste of ammo to kill them, so run out of
    the room before they try anything.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Head to the left and continue along the upper part of the floor.  You'll come
    across a statue, obviously something puzzle related, but it's insignificant for
    now, so take the double doors next to it.
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    This place, too, reeks of an impending puzzle, but again there isn't much you
    can do in here for now.  Turn to your right and head down that way, then left
    when you reach the wall.  At the end there will be some SHOTGUN SHELLS and a
    typewriter, complete with INK RIBBONS.  If you haven't saved yet in the game,
    (and if so you probably wouldn't be needing this) you might as well here.
    Ditch whatever else you have, all you should need is your guns, your ammo, and
    the CRANK HANDLE.
    
    Go to the other side of the room and take the first door that you see.
    There's a FILE along the way on a desk, if you want it.
    
    **ART HALLWAY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    Turn to your left.  You'll notice the two ZOMBIES further down the hall, so
    take them down (new style of ZOMBIES too, as old as this place is, these must
    be recent victims...).  Take the double doors by where the ZOMBIES were
    lurking.
    
    **LIBRARY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    In front of you on the desk will be the MAP for this section.  To your right
    you'll spot the shiny on the table, but don't take it just yet.  (There are
    also some INK RIBBONS in the area ahead of you by the computer, but who cares?
    Still, the fact that there is a computer here at all aludes to some kind of
    presence here.)  Go to the other side of the room and you'll find a hand
    operated elevator and a slot to use the CRANK HANDLE in.  Give Rebecca the
    HUNTING GUN and have her equip it, as well as the SHOTGUN SHELLS and a decent
    ammount of HANDGUN BULLETS, then move them to the elevator platform and have
    Billy use the CRANK HANDLE to raise her to the upper level.  (For reference,
    Rebecca can't operate the lift, so Billy has to)
    
    **CLOCK ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: TWO PLAGUE CRAWLERS
    
    There will be a puzzle here later, in a long standing tradition of RE clock
    puzzles.  As you walk forward, one of the PLAGUE CRAWLERS will drop from the
    ceiling.  Smack it around with a hunting gun blast or two, but don't waste too
    much ammo on it, as you'll need some later.  When you turn left and try to move
    on, another will drop down.  Deal with this critter in a similar manner.  Next
    to you on the table should be some much needed HANDGUN BULLETS.  Enjoy.
    
    **BALCONY**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: FOUR CROWS
    
    You can plug the CROW in front of you immediately without any danger of
    missing.  Getting the rest of them is generally wasting ammo unless you have a
    clean shot, so don't bother.  Along the part where the balcony juts out, there
    will be a GREEN HERB and a RED HERB, use as needed, then go through the door at
    the other end.
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    There's going to be a minor puzzle here, as well as a boss, but both will come
    later.  For now, head forward and to the right (that would be Rebecca's
    right)... there will be a staircase leading down.  Unlock the door on the
    right, then switch to Billy.
    
    **LIBRARY**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Now go out the way you came in...
    
    **ART HALLWAY**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    ENEMIES: ONE ZOMBIE
    
    There's a little lost zombie wandering down by where you need to be going
    (which is back to the MANSION MAIN HALL), take care of him if you want, but he
    doesn't pose much of a threat.
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Go through the double doors on the right leading to...
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Turn to the left and go around to the other side of the upper hall, the part
    opposite the BLUE STUDY.  There's a door there that will lead you to the lower
    part of the BIG CAGE ROOM, right where Rebecca should be standing.
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Bet you're just itchin' to find out what's behind the other door in this little
    hallway.  Well, you'll see why I set it up like this in a second...
    
    **ART STORAGE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: TWO PLAGUE CRAWLERS
    
    This is where you find the benefit of having two characters fight PLAGUE
    CRAWLERS as opposed to one.  Rebecca can blast each with a hunting gun burst
    and Billy can meanwhile be shooting either of them.  If one of the characters
    is pinned by a crawler, the other will shoot at it, and damage will be
    minimized for both sides.  A lot easier than in the CLOCK ROOM, isn't it?  On
    the couch you'll find a GRENADE LAUNCHER... in the fireplace a bit further
    ahead you'll find some SHOTGUN SHELLS.  Don't forget to take the WHITE STATUE
    on the table.  Leave as you came in.
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    There's a boss fight coming, so I recommend switching the items around:
    
    BILLY'S INVENTORY:
    GRENADE LAUNCHER
    GRENADE LAUNCHER
    HUNTING GUN
    HUNTING GUN
    SHOTGUN SHELLS
    HERBS (whatever you've got, if you have any)
    
    REBECCA'S INVENTORY:
    REBECCA'S HANDGUN
    BILLY'S HANDGUN
    HANDGUN AMMO
    WHITE STATUE
    EMPTY
    EMPTY
    
    Switch to Billy and equip the GRENADE LAUNCHER.  Now go up the stairs and go to
    where the cranks were.  Split up there, then operate the crank, DON'T MOVE,
    then switch to Rebecca.  Use her to descend the ladder into the empty pool,
    then grab the FACILITY KEY.  A cut scene will start and you'll find that a
    certain centipede is less than happy with this.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |+[BOSS FIGHT #2: CENTIPEDE]+                                                 |
    |+[DIFFICULTY: EASY]+                                                         |
    |I don't like this battle.  Doubt many people do, but the key here is to stay |
    |away and only shoot the centipede when it's facing you.  It has a set pattern|
    |it runs around in... it first runs around next to the cranks and comes out on|
    |the other side of the pillar, where it waits for a few seconds.  This is the |
    |time to shoot, but after a blast or two it will start running again (if it   |
    |shakes a bit after you shot it, you hit it where it counts).  At times, the  |
    |centipede will rear up and start shaking Rebecca around, though it might not |
    |always (in which case you can shoot immediately).  Don't shoot at it again   |
    |until a few seconds after it's done, if you want your shot line up properly. |
    |Periodically, one of your shots will make the centipede drop Rebecca, but    |
    |this doesn't seem to have much effect on the battle, aside from maybe        |
    |indicating the ammount of damage the it has taken. If it starts to shake     |
    |after the first shot, don't shoot at it again because it doesn't seem to do  |
    |any damage. Stay away from it at all costs, as the feet and tail can hurt you|
    |pretty badly if you aren't careful.  It will go forward, circle around the   |
    |pillar on the outside near the knight door, then come around again next to   |
    |the pool and stop again.  You should be backed up to where you're close to   |
    |the staircase, but can still see the centipede.  Move in as it stops, the    |
    |shots are more likely to count if you're closer, just make sure you stay away|
    |from the claws.  As you do more damage to it and it's close to dying, it will|
    |slow down noticably and won't stop in its tracks anymore when it's circling. |
    |After this, if you take too long to kill it, the centipede will crush and    |
    |kill Rebecca.  Otherwise, its pattern is infinite.  I don't know if there's a|
    |time limit on it before Rebecca dies (excluding when it slows down) or what, |
    |but staying as far away from the feet and tail as you can manage here is key.|
    |It should take all of your grenade shots plus about six hunting gun bursts to|
    |fell this beast, though it can take a little less if you're good.  You can   |
    |usually come through this battle unhurt.                                     |
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Examine the key Rebecca has... it's the FIRE KEY, for use on the red doors.
    
    Go back down the stairs, use the door on the right.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Remember the statue in front of the door leading to the CONFERENCE ROOM?  Use
    the WHITE STATUE on it so you'll have one less thing to carry.  Also drop the
    GRENADE LAUNCHER, since without ammo it's of no use to you.  Head down the
    stairs and take the double doors on the typewriter side of the room.
    
    **DINING ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: FOUR ZOMBIES
    
    There are two to your left (use the HUNTING GUN), one coming towards you from
    the front, and another coming from the right.  After you kill the one on the
    right, go over to find some HANDGUN BULLETS.  Continue along this path and open
    the Red Door using the FIRE KEY.
    
    **KITCHEN**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    There's an EMPTY BOTTLE and some LIGHTER FLUID here.  Give the LIGHTER FLUID to
    Billy and combine it with his LIGHTER.
    
    **DINING ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Go over to the door on the other side of the room that you saw before.  Don't
    worry, the zombie won't be getting up yet.
    
    **BOILER HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Hang a right and take the door at the end.
    
    **FACILITY STORAGE**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: THREE ZOMBIES
    
    I recommend using up any shells you have left in your HUNTING GUN here.  There
    will be one ZOMBIE in front of you and two to your left as you progress.  Have
    Billy pick up the BLACK STATUE for his final item, then turn left, drop his
    HUNTING GUN to pick up the almighty SHOTGUN.  Have Rebecca pick up the GAS TANK
    and mix it with the EMPTY BOTTLE to get some MOLOTOV COKTAILS.  It's good to
    have some enhanced firepower again, and we'll need it soon.  Take the ladder
    up.
    
    **NARROW BALCONY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: FOUR ZOMBIES
    
    Yes, they are trying to kill us.  As you walk forward the ZOMBIE that you pass
    will start to rise.  In addition, three more ZOMBIES await around the corner.
    Aren't you glad you have that SHOTGUN?  Take out the one behind you first so
    your other character doesn't get too badly hurt, then move around to get the
    other three.  By now, you're probably hurting pretty badly, but there are two
    GREEN HERBS on the side.  Keep moving on...
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    We've come full circle here and ended up near the Knight Door.  If you have any
    RED HERBS nearby to combine the GREEN with, do it, drop the GAS TANK, then run
    to the end and take the door on the right again.
    
    **ART HALLWAY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    First, go to the end and use the FIRE KEY, then discard it.  Go in.
    
    **BROWN STUDY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    It's a little dark in here at first, but no worries, you're safe here.  Take
    whichever character has open item space and put them on lead.  Go around the
    corner and push the table until you hit the end, then jump over, hit the light
    switch, and start pushing the table to the left until it's directly underneath
    the moose head.  Climb on top of the table and examine the head to get the IRON
    NEEDLE (key piece in the clock puzzle).  There's also jackpot full of goodies
    to be found in here, on the other side of the table you will find some HANDGUN
    BULLETS, SHOTGUN SHELLS, and a FILE.  Go out the way you came in.
    
    **ART HALLWAY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Now back to the LIBRARY.
    
    **LIBRARY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    You should have three empty inventory slots total.  Have one of your characters
    grab the MICROFILM A on the desk to your left, then have Billy light the candle
    next to the door.  It will unlock.
    
    **LIBRARY ANNEX**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    Two researcher type ZOMBIES will be munching on one of the commandos.  That's a
    little curious... anyway, kill them since there's little room to maneuver here.
    One the shelf as you move on are some GRENADES.  Switch to Billy, turn to the
    right and jump up onto the ledge.  Use him to push the bookshelf to the right,
    then take the item you find.  It's the BOOK OF GOOD.  Examine the pages and
    open it to recieve the ANGEL WINGS.
    
    **LIBRARY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Out to the ART HALLWAY again.
    
    **ART HALLWAY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    TUrn right and go to the end...
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Back out the double doors... though save here, if you feel like so inclined.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Time to ditch some items.  Put the BLACK STATUE on the scales, then have your
    character with the ANGEL WINGS take the WHITE STATUE (make sure they have an
    open item space), combine it with the wings to get the STATUE OF GOOD, then
    replace it on the scales.  Most of the puzzle is now solved.  Put the GRENADES
    in your GRENADE LAUNCHER as you pass by, but drop it again, you won't need it
    quite yet.  Head to the left and back through the door leading to...
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Up the stairs and around the corner out to...
    
    **BALCONY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: CROWS
    
    Again, don't shoot unless you have a clear shot, which you probably will on the
    way back anyway.  Back to...
    
    **CLOCK ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Move over to the clock and use the IRON NEEDLE.

    + Remember the code written at the end of the NOTICE  +

    + to the right three times and the hour hand to the   +
    + left four times.  Unlike previous RE puzzles, you   +
    + need to OK it and exit, it won't just switch on and +
    + admit to being solved.                              +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    This will unlock a door next to the lower entrance to the BIG CAGE ROOM on the
    second floor of the MANSION MAIN HALL and a door at the end of hallway you
    haven't visited yet on the first floor of the MANSION MAIN HALL.  Head to the
    former first.
    
    **BALCONY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: CROWS
    
    There could be one sitting on the railing again, blast it if you're trigger
    happy, then continue on.
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Down the stairs and to the right again, we won't be revisiting this place at
    least for a little while now.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Turn left and start going along the upper walkway, you should find the door you
    unlocked.
    
    **MEETING ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: FOUR ZOMBIES
    
    There are a whopping four ZOMBIES in here, three ahead of you and one will come
    around the corner to your right.  There's no easy way to get around them here,
    so kill them all before you move on.  Grab the FILE in front of you, then go
    over to the fireplace (complete with fire, curiouser and curiouser) where
    you'll find MICROFILM B and some more SHOTGUN SHELLS.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Go back down to the first floor, then take the door on the trapdoor side of the
    floor.
    
    **FIRST FLOOR LONG HALLWAY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Take the door at the far end of the hall, as it was unlocked by the puzzle.
    The door prior to that will lead to what may be the first BATHROOM in RE
    history (that's where they got some of the box shots, speaking of which, what
    ARE they fighting in the right shot?) and will yield a GAS TANK and a GREEN
    HERB, but you'll have to fight a LEECH ZOMBIE for it, so there isn't much point
    (but if you need that herb, use the MOLOTOV, it makes things that much easier,
    but I don't recommend it, as you'll take damage and will need those MOLOTOVs
    later on).
    
    **OPERATIONS CONTROL ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    Again, there's no simple way to get around killing the ZOMBIES here.  The first
    will be near the wall facings you as you enter, the other will be on the
    opposite side of the room behind a desk.  By the time you waste the first one,
    the other should be nearby.  After you're done, head around the desk to get a
    double box of some (perhaps) much needed HANDGUN BULLETS.  Insert MICROFILM A
    and MICROFILM B into the projector.  You'll see an overlay of the CONFERENCE
    ROOM with corresponding numbers for the desks.  You'll recieve a MO DISK (it's
    not RE without it) and a photo FILE of the projection.  You know what this
    means.
    
    **FIRST FLOOR LONG HALLWAY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: ONE LEECH ZOMBIE
    
    You'll reach the end of the hallway, when suddenly, DRAMA!  You'll find this
    fellow as you turn the final bend, but DON'T FIGHT HIM, there's no need to
    waste ammo and herbs here when you aren't coming back.  RUN PAST.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Finally... now go back up to the CONFERENCE ROOM.
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Combine the GAS TANKs if you absolutely had to get the other one.  Use the MO
    DISK on the podium in front.  You'll get a code such as "47" or "0A".  It's
    puzzle time again.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    This will unlock all of the knight doors previously seen in such places like
    the CONFERENCE ROOM, the MAINSION MAIN HALL, and the BIG CAGE ROOM.  Now you
    have even more to explore.  Let's tackle the closest one first.
    
    **NARROW HALLWAY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    More undead researchers... the first one is to your left as you enter, the
    second is around the corner and down the hall.  Take the first door on your
    right.
    
    **CHESS ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Pick up the HANDGUN BULLETS to your right.  To your left, around the table, are
    some NAPALM GRENADES for your launcher and a pile of useless INK RIBBONS.  But
    what's this?  A giant chessboard...
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + [CHESS PUZZLE]                                      +
    +                                                     +
    + Go around to the other side of the desk and look at +
    + the board as an example... you'll see that the black+
    + king has been put in checkmate.  The trick here will+
    + be to match up the pieces to the board, but you can +
    + only move the White King without setting off a gas  +
    + trap.  Push the White King down three, then right   +
    + one so it hits the edge, then up two to where it    +
    + touches the other White Rook.  Something will click,+
    + and the other chessboard will slide away.           +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Pick up the BOOK OF EVIL from its hole, examine it in the same way to get the
    BLACK WING, but wait, there's more here... you'll pick up the MARCUS DIARY 1
    FILE as well.
    
    **NARROW HALLWAY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    If you must know, behind the other door there's the INFIRMARY with a FIRST-AID
    SPRAY, two BLUE HERBs and two zombies guarding them.  There's also a FILE in
    there next to the left bed by the cabinet, detailing the answers to a
    mini-puzzle coming up that I'll explain anyway, but if you're into getting all
    the files. Full-healing items are sometimes hard to come by anyway, you can if
    you want.  If you do go in, however, use the green capsule to get some GREEN
    CHEMICAL in Rebecca's mixing set.  Go back out the way you came.
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Out the double doors again, we won't be visiting again for a little while, so
    clear out as many items as you can from here and save if you have to.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Combine the BLACK WING and the BLACK STATUE to get your STATUE OF EVIL.
    Replace it, and Marcus' portrait will slide down revealing a new path.  This
    time you will want to take the GRENADE LAUNCHER and give it to Rebecca, you
    need a little firepower from here on out...
    
    *******************************************************************************
    Part THREE: UNDERGROUND (FACILITY BASEMENT)
    "There is still evil in this place..."
    *******************************************************************************
    
    **UNDERGROUND HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: THREE SPIDERS
    
    Shoot down the spider in front of you with your SHOTGUN (if you don't want to
    just go through), but run around the rest of them to the very end.
    
    **OBSERVATION ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Pick up the FILE in front of you.  Maybe that's where Billy was headed...
    anyway, there's a typewriter and some INK RIBBONS here, if you want to, along
    with a MAP of the facility basement next to it.  There's also a GREEN HERB and
    a BLUE HERB.  Go out the other door.
    
    **CHAIN ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    I suppose no reputable research facility is complete without a place to shackle
    your test subjects to, but we've come to expect this sort of creepiness.  Go
    around the corner to find an open air shaft.  Give Rebecca a boost to get in...
    enjoy the lame dialogue.
    
    **TORTURE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Switch back to Billy, if you want to save a little time.
    
    **CHAIN ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Exit this place.
    
    **OBSERVATION ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    If you had gone on with Rebecca's segment, there would've been an eliminator
    waiting to kill you here, but if you're doing it this way, they haven't been
    released yet.  Just move on through.
    
    **UNDERGROUND HALL**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    ENEMIES: SPIDERS
    
    Ignore the spiders because you most likely won't be coming through here again
    (unless you really want some ammo, explained later).
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Move down the stairs again and take the double doors by the typewriter.
    
    **DINING ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    ENEMIES: ONE ZOMBIE?
    
    You're going to want to take the door by where the corpse is.  Under normal
    circumstances he'll revive as the undead, but sometimes, if you've gone through
    the rest quickly, he won't until the next time, or sometimes not at all.
    
    **BOILER HALL**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Hang a left and go down the glowing side of the room.  Eventually, you'll come
    to the boiler and a wall of steam.  Switch to Rebecca.
    
    **TORTURE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Nor would any self-respecting laboratory be without its very own torture
    chamber. Turn right at the end and pick up the FILE.  Go back to the blinking
    light and use the power panel.  Yes, the power puzzle from RE2 is back, but I'm
    not making a special section for it.  Flip the switches UP UP DOWN UP UP to
    complete the puzzle.  You'll hear some whirring.  The door to the TORTURE ROOM
    will unlock, along with the other door in the UNDERGROUND HALLWAY (this leads
    to the MONITOR ROOM, though not part of the walkthrough, a room with TWO
    ZOMBIES, three boxes of HANDGUN BULLETS, a GAS TANK, and a box of SHOTGUN
    SHELLS.  It also has a connecting door to the TORTURE ROOM, but this is
    insignificant), and the boiler will steam a little... after a cut scene, an
    eliminator will attack Rebecca and she'll fall down a pit.  You'll see another
    cut scene with William Birkin and Albert Wesker, seems there's a self-destruct
    device.  Guess it's time for Billy to come to the rescue...
    
    **BOILER HALL**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Now we're back in the saddle.  There's two GREEN HERBs here, a RED HERB, and a
    BLUE HERB.  You probably won't need them now, so run down the stairs.
    
    **STATUE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    ENEMIES: THREE ELIMINATORS
    
    Ignore the ELIMINATORS for now.  Run to the end, hang a right past that door,
    and take the door at the end.
    
    **UNDERGROUND STORAGE**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Billy will rescue Rebecca in a cut scene, some things about Billy's background
    are explained through a series of additional cut scenes.  Save if you want.
    Leave Billy here if he's been too badly hurt and go back to the BOILER HALL for
    medical supplies.  I'll assume it didn't come to that.
    
    **STATUE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: THREE ELIMINATORS
    
    Take the ELIMINATORS out with your SHOTGUN or your GRENADE LAUNCHER, there's no
    better way it seems.  Pick up the HANDGUN BULLETS you missed as you come by
    (it's only a five spot, go figure).  Go back to the statues.

    The grate over by the Cougar will lift up.  Follow it onward and take the first
    door on your right.
    
    **RUINED BEDROOM**

    There's an EMPTY BOTTLE on the table.  Go to the fireplace and pick up the
    UNITY TABLET.

    Down the stairs and to the right.  You'll find the spiders, but pay them no
    heed if you don't have to.  Take the first door you come to on your right.
    
    **WATERFALL STORAGE**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: TWO PLAGUE CRAWLERS
    
    Save some time and use the GRENADE LAUNCHER on them.  On a box in front of
    where they were, you'll find the LOCKER KEY.  Take it.
    
    **SUBTERRANEAN HALL**

    Run to the door opposite you.
    
    **BATTLE CONTROL ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: None, yet.
    
    Run up the stairs and find two boxes of HANDGUN BULLETS, some SHOTGUN SHELLS,
    and some MAGNUM ROUNDS tucked away in the corner next to the shells.  Use your
    LOCKER KEY to open the locker nearby and you'll get the DURALUMIN CASE.
    Examine the side of it to find a code, "385", for example.  Enter the code on
    the case and hit A when you're done.  You'll get some HANDGUN PARTS.  Since
    Billy is a better shot, combine these with Rebecca's gun to get a CUSTOM
    HANDGUN.  Switch all the HANGUN BULLETS to Billy and give him the UNITY
    TABLET.  Rebecca should have her HANDGUN, the GRENADE LAUNCHER, and the MAGNUM
    ROUNDS (if you have too much stuff, forget these, it's only one).  Examine the
    control panel and press the left button.  Split up.
    
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Go down the stairs to the right until you get inside the cage mechanism.  Pick
    up the ACID GRENADES and wait there.
    
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Examine the control panel.  Press the center button.
    
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Move past the lowered grates and wait in front of the next one.
    
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Use the Right button, then do the center again.
    
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: TWO HUNTERS, soon.
    
    Move into position in front of the shiny at the end.  There's a red button
    nearby.  You know what that means, but first, put in the ACID GRENADES.  The
    HUNTERS will drop down, so kill them quickly.  Grab the FACILITY KEY, examine
    and it becomes the WATER KEY.  Now there will be more fun back in the mansion.
    After you kill them and go back to the entrance, the grate will open.  Reunite
    with Billy and get out.
    
    **SUBTERRANEAN HALL**

    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    If you want to make some more MOLOTOV COCKTAILS, go for it.  You MIGHT want to
    take the GAS TANK with you so you can make more if needed.  Also, ditch the
    GRENADES and the MAGNUM ROUNDS, you won't need them for a while.  Take the
    door at the top of the right staircase.
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**

    the door near you.

    Cue sinister music.  Immediately take the door on your right.

    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: ONE LEECH ZOMBIE
    
    Turn right to find him.  Use the ACID GRENADES to take him down before he

    **LEECH ZOMBIE HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: ONE LEECH ZOMBIE
    
    Now we're ready to take him down.  Use your MOLOTOVs on this guy.  Hopefully he
    won't kill you, heh heh (and hopefully you have some healing items saved).
    Take the door on your right.
    
    **PIANO BAR**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    You'd expect there to be some EMPTY BOTTLES here, alas, there are not.  You'll
    find a piano.  Split up and move Rebecca to the discolored patch of wall, then
    have Billy play the piano.  Switch to Rebecca and move in.  Grab the MAGNUM
    ROUNDS (an actual eight spot this time) to your right as you enter, then take
    the EMPTY BOTTLES (hey, there were some after all), and the BATTERY.  The
    powers that be aren't too happy you removed it, so play the piano again to
    appease them.
    
    **LEECH (ZOMBIE) HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH

    Crunch them underneath, but if you're hurting don't underestimate them.  Take
    the door on your right.

    Take the door to your immediate right.
    
    **RUINED MEETING ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    One ZOMBIE will come from each side.  After you're done, turn to the right and
    into the crevice.  Use the VISE HANDLE on the workbench to get the OBEDIENCE
    TABLET.  Run forward from there to find some SHOTGUN SHELLS in the corner, then
    exit.
    
    **DIM HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Time to go to the other door at the end of this area.
    
    **RUSTED ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    You'll find a FIRST-AID SPRAY in front of you, most excellent.  If you turn to
    the right you'll find some HANDGUN BULLETS on the counter.  In the glass
    chamber you'll find a GREEN HERB, a RED HERB, and some more EMPTY BOTTLES.
    
    **DIM HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: ONE LEECH ZOMBIE
    
    (insert expletive here).  Push through and get to the other door since you

    Safe, but never for long.  Go through the other end.
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: FOUR PLAGUE CRAWLERS
    
    Now we get to find out what that strange chattering is.  Pick up your UNITY
    TABLET and move up the stairs, slowly.  As you get to the top, you'll be
    noticed by the FOUR, yes, FOUR PLAGUE CRAWLERS.  I recommend setting your
    partner to wait at the bottom of the stairs, then running up and luring them to
    about eye level as you're standing on the stairs.  That way you can fire at
    them without them being smart enough to attack you.  Always a bonus.  Go
    through the knight door you previously overlooked.
    
    **OBSERVATORY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Pick up the HANDGUN BULLETS to your right, then run around and go down the
    ladder at the end.  You'll find a panel at the bottom with three strange slots.
    Put in your UNITY TABLET and your OBEDIENCE TABLET.  I suppose there would be
    one more...
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Down the stairs again...
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**

    if you want, and ditch the MAGNUM AMMO with ther rest.
    
    **MANSION ENTRANCE**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Turn around the corner to your left.  Beyond the shaft you'll find a slot to
    put a BATTERY in.  Use the lift, then switch to Rebecca and split with Billy.
    Jump behind the box on the lift and push it out, eventually positioning it
    below the pillar with the shiny on it.  switch to Billy and regroup, then have
    him climb the box and grab the OBEDIENCE TABLET.  Now we can get out of this
    hole.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Now you're ready to get out of here.  But you need to take the HOOKSHOT with
    you, and unfortunately, you have 13 slots worth of items you'll want and 12 you
    can hold (assuming you consolidate ammo and aren't taking INK RIBBONS or
    HERBs).  Guess you'll have to make multiple trips.
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Back to the knight door.
    
    **OBSERVATORY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    After you use the OBEDIENCE TABLET, you need to switch to DISK 2.  The
    telescope will sink down a level.  When you go back to pick up your items, that
    door will lead you to...
    
    **NARROW BALCONY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: TWO ELIMNATORS
    
    You come out right where the balcony jutted out before.  ELIMINATORS are
    nuisances,as you well know, so deal with them accordingly.  The door on the far
    right will lead you back to the CONFERENCE ROOM, you can navigate the rest from
    there...
    
    **OBSERVATORY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Take your newfound exit to...
    
    
    All told, the entire mansion (above and below ground) can take from an hour and
    fifteen minutes to an hour and half at a good pace.

    **BRIDGE AND LAB ENTRANCE**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Run across the bridge.  Try to leave any dropped items in plain view when you
    start unloading.  When you try to open up the CHURCH you'll find it locked.
    Give one of your characters (BILLY, perhaps, since he's stronger) the SHOTGUN,
    SHOTGUN SHELLS (IF you have only a few shells already in the gun), and the
    HOOKSHOT, nothing else (you CAN give them the GRENADE LAUNCHER if you have
    spare grenades already in it, but it isn't necessary.  Sub out the HOOKSHOT
    and come back for it later if you do).  Split up and have your partner run
    into the gazebo at the right, have them stand on the panel inthe upper left
    corner.  Send your main character into the CHURCH, and leave your healing
    supplies at the door.
    
    **CHURCH**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    There isn't much here, except references to how the religious figures are just
    a wee bit creepy.  You can drop your HOOKSHOT at the front for extra space,
    you'll likely pick up two things in the next room.  To the right of the
    altar there's a door.
    
    **CHURCH OFFICE**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    Here we find SHOTGUN SHELLS and NAPALM GRENADES (always useful in church,
    especially during sunday school) as well as some INK RIBBONS to accompany the
    typewriter.  You might want to save here.

    Cut scene?  Well, I guess it has been a while...

    |Are all bosses easy?  So far, yes.  I don't recommend using anything more    |
    |than the SHOTGUN on this fellow, it needs to be a little closer anyway to hit|
    |it with the GRENADE LAUNCHER (and those NAPALM GRENADES are too valuable, but|
    |if you have some ACIDs or GRENADEs left, hey, go for it).  The primary       |
    |difficulty you'll have with it is that it's a moving target.  So how do you  |
    |compensate?  After you've targeted him and started aiming up, hit L every    |
    |once in a while to realign your shot with where it's flying.  Shoot it when  |
    |you have a clean shot or it gets too close to you.  After the first few      |
    |shots, it will call out some of it's minions and targetting becomes a little |
    |more difficult.  If you want to shoot the little bats to fix that, go for it,|
    |I usually ignore them, they only come back anyway.  As for the giant bat's   |
    |actual pattern, it tends to circle a bit, then swoop down and claw at you.   |
    |Periodically, it will pick you up, lift you to some height, then drop you.   |
    |There's no real defense for the attacks, but if you shoot when it's close it |
    |will keep away for a while.  Six to twelve direct hits with the SHOTGUN will |
    |end the battle.                                                              |
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    As you're leaving, you'll spot a hole in the roof.  If you already used up the
    SHOTGUN SHELLS you picked up in the office, and didn't bring in the LAUNCHER
    (unless you reloaded it after using the rounds), you should have enough space
    to pick up the HOOKSHOT again.  You know what to do.
    
    **CHURCH ROOF**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    There's a ladder off in the distance.  That's your destination.
    
    **BACKYARD**
    CHARACTER: MAIN
    
    You'll find yourself on the other side of the gate.  There's a circuit breaker
    nearby, so flip it in, so pick it up.  There's also a RED HERB near the gate.
    
    **BRIDGE AND LAB ENTRANCE**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Recollect your items.  Unfortunately, you still need the HOOKSHOT (cuss, if it
    helps).  Take all the junk you can with you and head down the elevator (and
    elevator cut scene) to...
    
    **RUINED HALLWAY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    ANOTHER lab?  Well, it is only the second disk.  Start dropping your items off
    in here.  For Rebecca, keep the HOOKSHOT, her HANDGUN, HANDGUN BULLETS, and the
    GRENADE LAUNCHER (with whatever ammo, preferably NAPALM).  Leave the SHOTGUN,
    MOLOTOVs, SHOTGUN SHELLS (if you have em) and Billy's handgun with him (but no
    ammo, just trust me on this, but make sure he has a good ammount of ammo still
    in his gun, enough to kill one ZOMBIE).  Go through the only door you can.
    
    **REFERENCE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Split up.  Have Billy go forward and to the right, you'll find a typewriter
    (complete with INK RIBBONS) and a chute.  Send Rebecca to the left, pick up the
    FILE, ignore the corpse (for now), and use the HOOKSHOT when you reach the end.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BILLY METHOD
    
    If you sent Billy up instead of Rebecca, you aren't trapped.  Capcom wouldn't
    be that cruel.  It just makes things take a little longer.  Go through things
    as follows and send the LEECH CAPSULE down to Rebecca once you get it.  After
    you defeat the LEECH ZOMBIE in the RUINED HALLWAY, you'll find a red capsule
    which you can use to get the RED CHEMICAL.  If you already had the GREEN
    CHEMICAL in your MIXING SET, then you can quickly combine the two to create the
    STRIPPING AGENT and no time is wasted.  If you didn't, you'll have to go back
    to the INFIRMARY to use the green capsule there.
    
    The directions are:
    
    RUINED HALLWAY, use elevator to get to --> BRIDGE AND LAB ENTRANCE, cross the
    bridge to --> OBSERVATORY, take the opposite door to --> NARROW BALCONY, take
    the
    upper right door to --> CONFERENCE ROOM, take the knight door to --> NARROW
    HALLWAY, then go to the far end of the hall to get into the INFIRMARY.
    
    This walkthrough DOES NOT plan for Billy going up into the labs because it
    ignores the INFIRMARY as being otherwise unnecessary.  It's quicker to go as
    I've outlined.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    **GREY LAB**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: ONE LEECH ZOMBIE
    
    Drop the HOOKSHOT, you won't need it for a little while.  Pick the FILE on the
    chair for a helpful hint on an upcoming puzzle.  There's also a GAS TANK here
    on a shelf, take it, as you'll find some bottles soon.  By this I mean DON'T
    equip the GRENADE LAUNCHER, you'll need it for something else soon. Make your
    way around the corner to the right.  There you'll find your LEECH ZOMBIE, the
    buggers, as you well know, are sensitive to MOLOTOVS, so on the shelf on the
    left side of the screen, there are some EMPTY BOTTLES, so now you have some
    MOLOTOVs (and a spare GAS TANK).  Make them and use them.  Past where the
    LEECH ZOMBIE was you'll find a mechanism you can operate to get a LEECH
    CAPSULE.  As Marcus Diary 2 hinted, you can't open it yet.  Pick up the LAB
    MAP on your way out of the room.
    
    **DOOR HALL**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Push the button to your right.  Now the RUINED HALLWAY isn't so small, but
    Billy will have a new friend to deal with.  Ditch your GRENADE LAUNCHER here
    for now.  Hang a left around the corner and take the door you find at the end.
    
    **BLUE LAB**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: ONE ZOMBIE
    
    The one on the floor isn't quite dead yet.  Fix that, then pick up the SHOTGUN
    SHELLS and the FILE (important for a puzzle). Past the corpse that isn't a
    ZOMBIE, you'll find a red capsule, use it to get the RED CHEMICAL in your
    MIXING SET (if you went to the INFIRMARY in the mansion, you should already
    have some GREEN CHEMICAL in there.  Mix them to get the STRIPPING AGENT).  Go
    through the other door.
    
    **OPERATING ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: THREE ZOMBIES
    
    There are two next to you and one coming around the corner (notice the Umbrella
    insignia on the arms).  After that, put the SHOTGUN SHELLS in the chute and
    send them to Billy.  Around the first corner you'll find a FIRST-AID SPRAY, and
    around the second, a FILE.  If you didn't use the green capsule in the mansion
    before, then put some chemical in your MIXING SET now, combining that with the
    RED CHEMICAL to produce the STRIPPING AGENT, which you then combine with the
    LEECH CAPSULE to get the BLUE LEECH CHARM.  Go back to the chute and switch to
    Billy.
    
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    It's entirely possible that you'll find a corpse next to you.  This would be
    the commando corpse you saw before.  That would be why I told you to leave that
    much ammo.  Grab the SHOTGUN SHELLS from the chute.
    
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Send down the BLUE LEECH CHARM.
    
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Pick up the BLUE LEECH CHARM.  Leave.
    
    **RUINED HALL**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    ENEMIES: ONE LEECH ZOMBIE
    
    He's right around the corner next to you.  Use your MOLOTOVs or (worst-case
    scenario) SHOTGUN.  Heal up when you're done.  There's a GREEN HERB and a RED
    HERB around the corner, but Billy can't mix herbs so there's little point.  At
    the end of the annex to the hall, there's a door that you can use your BLUE
    LEECH CHARM on to unlock.
    
    **CURIOUS STUDY**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Around the corner inside the desk you'll find some HANDGUN BULLETS.  On the
    other side of the room you'll find an INPUT REG. COIL.  Pick it up and you'll
    find a photo, which will be followed by a cut scene.  Go through the other
    door.
    
    **ART ANNEX**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    The first zombie is wandering around as you enter, but the second won't move
    until you try to pick up the GREEN LEECH CHARM to your right on the statue.
    After you've got it, leave.
    
    **CURIOUS STUDY**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Back out the other end.
    
    **RUINED HALL**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    On to the REFERENCE ROOM again, on your right after the second turn.
    
    **REFERENCE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Send Rebecca the GREEN LEECH CHARM.
    
    **OPERATING ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Take the charm and put it in the door in this room that you couldn't open.
    
    **MORGUE**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    One of them is lying on the floor, half in a box, another will crawl towards
    you.  Dispose of the crawling one, but you can avoid the other one entirely.
    Pick up the item at the end to get the STERILIZING AGENT.  Right of here there
    are two boxes of HANDGUN BULLETS.  Leave.
    
    **OPERATING ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Go back to the...
    
    **BLUE LAB**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Use the STERILIZING AGENT on the panel in front of the gas chamber.  After it's
    done, head inside.
    
    **CHAMBER/BLUE LAB**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    Begin shooting down immediately.  The ZOMBIE will try, then fail, to get up.
    Our other friend will come via the corpse outside, so fire at him when he
    comes.  Grab the BREEDING ROOM KEY.  You can also add some more RED CHEMICAL to
    your MIXING SET since you'll need it later anyway.  Go out the door on the
    right.
    
    **DOOR HALL**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Go to the door at the opposite end and use your key.
    
    **BREEDING ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: TWO HUNTERS
    
    This is why you brought the GRENADE LAUNCHER.  Around the corner here you'll
    find both ready to tear you apart, so fry them.  Pick up the FILE that was at
    the corner (which explains both things past and gives a taste of things to
    come) and run to the end.  In the left cage next to the divider you'll find
    the DIAL.  Take it.
    
    **DOOR HALL**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Back to the door at the end...

    Send the DIAL down to Billy.
    
    **REFERENCE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Pick up the DIAL and go back out.  Make sure you have the INPUT REG. COIL with
    you too.
    
    **RUINED HALL**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Remember the door with the circular hole in it?  Put the dial in...

    **CABLE CAR TERMINAL (LAB)**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    There will be a cut scene.  Turn left and go forward until you find the switch
    on the wall, use it.  This will move a ladder over so Rebecca can get down here
    from the room she didn't go through upstairs.  You can pick up the OUTPUT REG.
    COIL here, then you might as well.  Send Billy up the ladder.
    
    **CONTROL PLATFORM**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    
    Go towards the door on the opposite end.  Use the EMPTY BOTTLE and the GAS TANK
    to make some MOLOTOVs, heal with the GREEN HERB if you need to, and save if you
    have to.
    
    **OPERATION ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Take the door next to you.
    
    **BLUE LAB**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Last time through here...
    
    **DOOR HALL**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    You might want to take the first door on your left just to switch and combine
    items.  But what you really have to do is turn the corner and go back into...
    
    **GREY LAB**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Pick up the HOOKSHOT, and the GAS TANK if you want it.
    
    **DOOR HALL**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Back through the second door on the right...
    
    **CONTROL PLATFORM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Ignore Billy.  Go down the ladder.
    
    **CABLE CAR TERMINAL (LAB)**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Down in the corner here opposite the door you'll find a hole where you can use
    your HOOKSHOT to get through.
    
    **CONTROL PLATFORM (ROOM)**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Finally, you can ditch that godforsaken HOOKSHOT for good.  Unlock the door and
    meet up with Billy.
    
    **CONTROL PLATFORM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    As usual, the two parts will be interconnected now.  Pick up the SHOTGUN SHELLS
    near the locker in the control room.  Ditch all of Billy's extra items.  Know
    that very soon he'll be leaving temporarily and anything he has will go with
    him, so know that when you leave this stuff with him it's gone, but it will be
    back.  I'd recommend leaving the SHOTGUN and its supplies with him, along with
    his HANDGUN, a healing item, and a GAS TANK (and if you don't want that, then
    give him the GRENADE LAUNCHER, but it's not as useful from here out, and it
    takes up too much space).  Put both COILS in the mechanism, then go back down
    the ladder.
    
    **CABLE CAR TERMINAL (LAB)**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: ONE LEECH ZOMBIE, but not quite yet.
    
    I'd recommend making some runs back and forth to get your items before
    continuing.  Also mix up the RED and GREEN HERBS that you now have at least one
    pair of, if you haven't already.  When you're ready, try to open the doors to
    the car.  A cut scene will occur, leaving an ELIMINATOR to knock Billy off the
    platform and a LEECH ZOMBIE to fight you.  It knocks out one of the coils,
    making life all that more spooky.  Kill it with your MOLOTOVs, heal as needed,
    and go up the ladder again.
    
    **CONTROL PLATFORM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: LEECHES
    
    Pick up the OUTPUT REG. COIL that's surrounded by the leeches and use it on the
    terminal again.  Go back down the ladder.
    
    **CABLE CAR TERMINAL (LAB)**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Usually in terms of items it will end up like this:
    
    INVENTORY:
    HANDGUN
    HANDGUN BULLETS
    MOLOTOV
    MAGNUM ROUNDS
    FULL-HEALING ITEMS
    EMPTY
    
    You CAN move your extra items into the car, but you don't really need them from
    here out (and in terms of the HOOKSHOT, not at all).  You'll want the empty
    slot as you'll soon see.  Go into the car.
    
    **CABLE CAR**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Near the controls you'll find a dead soldier holding a MAGNUM.  You know you
    want it.  Start the car, and get out when it stops.
    
    All told this section will take from half an hour to forty-five minutes.

    **CABLE CAR TERMINAL (FACTORY)**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Where could we possibly be?  There are two GREEN HERBS nearby.  Take them or
    leave them, but you won't likely have space, so start going up the stairs.  You
    can't open the door on your left, so head up the next flight to where you can
    open the door.
    
    **PLATFORM TERMINAL (UPPER FACTORY)**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Bet you didn't expect to see this place again.  Ditch an item, most likely your
    healing one, then take the lift down, running around until you get to the door.
    
    **CAMERA ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: TWO HUNTERS, but not yet.
    
    Go around to the end to pick up the FACTORY KEY (UP KEY, after examination).
    You'll find no freaky Mr. X lurching toward you here, but you will see a tyrant
    in a capsule.  Forshadow?  You bet.  Equip your MAGNUM and leave, you'll find
    the hunters on your way out but they aren't much to worry about anymore.
    
    **PLATFORM TERMINAL (UPPER FACTORY)**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Again ride the lift to the top, and go through the door you haven't been
    through yet.
    
    **PANEL ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Here you should find a MAP, some HANDGUN BULLETS, some GRENADES (probably
    irrelevant), and some INK RIBBONs with a typewriter to save at.  Use the UP KEY
    on the terminal next to where the HANDGUN BULLETS were.  It will summon the
    platform.
    
    **PLATFORM TERMINAL (UPPER FACTORY)**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Pick up your dropped item and operate the control panel on the platform to go
    down.
    
    **PLATFORM TERMINAL (LOWER FACTORY)**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    This also looks familiar... but you won't be able to search your surroundings
    too well.  Leave the MOLOTOVs on the other side of the gigantic rubble heap by
    the platform, just trust me on this.  Run towards what looks like an elevator
    on the other side of the platform, a cut scene will occur, some plot holes will
    be filled, opening some bigger ones in the process (ouch).  Pick up the shiny
    to get the ELEVATOR KEY.  Now you can use the working elevator on the other
    side of the room.  Use the key on the glowing panel, you'll get a cut scene and
    find something unpleasant climbing down the rubble next to you, which will
    proceed to slash a panel, locking you in with it.

    |Ugh.  And in such close quarters too.  Make sure you have your MAGNUM handy, |
    |you should still have the extra rounds too.  The simple strategy here is to  |
    |circle the TYRANT and shoot while he's turning to catch up with you.  NEVER  |
    |CROSS HIS LINE OF SIGHT WHEN YOU CIRCLE HIM.  He'll only charge and attack   |
    |you.  Each shot you get on him that counts for something will end up stunning|
    |him, so don't fire at him when he's knocked back a little.  Also, you can    |
    |only seem to hit him from the front, so when he's turning towards you, you   |
    |can't him him.  You can't shoot him either when he's crouched down and about |
    |to charge you, so another strategy would be to wait until he does that and   |
    |run out of the way of the attack, then move back in front of him to shoot him|
    |in the chest, but with this strategy, you have to make absolutely certain you|
    |have enough room to run away without him slashing at you (this is my         |
    |preferred method).  If you stay out of range and fire when you can, you'll   |
    |easily defeat him.  Ten MAGNUM ROUNDS should do the job, and you can probably|
    |defeat him without getting hit.                                              |

    what?), pick up anything you really need from there.  FACTORY LEVEL 2 will take
    you to a narrow platform where you will find some MAGNUM ROUNDS next to you,
    some HANDGUN BULLETS on a nearby barrel, a HUNTER down the catwalk around the
    corner, and a GREEN HERB with a RED HERB at the end, which leads back to the
    cable car by which you arrived at the factory.  It's a nice tade off, and if
    you used up the healing item fighting the TYRANT then you can get it right back
    at the price of one MAGNUM ROUND.  Level 3 is where we started, there's no need
    to revisit. Level 4 is your true destination, and you'll get a cut scene along
    the way.  Exit.
    
    This section should take no more than ten minutes.

    Rebecca will spot Billy clinging to some rocks in the water, but something big
    will hit him and knock him off.  Suppose it's time to chase after him.
    
    **POWER ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    There's a GAS TANK to your right.  If you run ahead from here you'll find the
    lift isn't working.  Head around the corner, there's a typewriter here and some
    INK RIBBONs, along with some HANDGUN BULLETS.  Note the grid like puzzle nearby.

    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: THREE ZOMBIES
    
    I don't get this.  This is several months prior to the fall of Raccoon City...
    so why are there so many zombies here?  The first one is opposite you, lying
    against the wall.  The next will come across the catwalk, the third is beyond
    him.  Next to one of the control panels you'll find some EMPTY BOTTLES.  On the
    other side you'll find a GREEN HERB and a RED HERB.  Take what you need, or
    mix, as the case may be.
    
    **PIPE CATWALK**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: ONE LEECH ZOMBIE
    
    As the camera angle changes, you'll find a LEECH ZOMBIE running around the
    corner towards you, so have those MOLOTOVs ready.  Beyond him there's a door
    with a hole in it, but you can't make it through just yet.
    
    **POOL BAR**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: ONE ZOMBIE
    
    The ZOMBIE is in an obvious position once you enter.  Beyond him are some EMPTY
    BOTTLEs for the rest of your GAS TANK and a MAP on the wall.  Go around the
    pool table and down the stairs.
    
    **FORKLIFT ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    You might see something shining on the ledge, but you can't do anything about
    it for now.  Hang a right, you'll find a door along with a RED HERB and a GREEN
    HERB.
    
    **WATER CONTROL ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Wander around here and you'll see a HANDLE on the other side of the room that
    you can't reach.  Near the entrance there are some SHOTGUN SHELLS, but you
    don't have the SHOTGUN back yet so there's no point.  Just go through the door.
    
    **STAIRS**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    ENEMIES: LEECHES
    
    Squish the leeches and make your way around to the bottom.
    
    **DRAINAGE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: ONE LURKER
    
    Immediately there will be a cut scene where you'll reunite with Billy and find
    a heap of skeletons.  Exit through the first door you see on your way back, the
    other can't be opened yet.  Don't hang around too long, though, or else a
    LURKER will jump out of the water.
    
    **STAIRS**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    More stairs, more leeches to crunch...
    
    **WATER CONTROL ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Split up.  Move Rebecca to the control platform and have Billy take his SHOTGUN
    SHELLS as well as the ladder down into the pit.  Once again, it's puzzle time.

    + You need to get the wooden boxes to line up at the  +

    **FACTORY BOILER**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: SIX (yes, SIX) NAKED ZOMBIES
    
    Around the corner to your right you'll find two wandering around and one
    playing dead on the floor.  Also here is a box of HANDGUN BULLETS.  On the
    other end are the other three wandering about.  Dispatch them and climb the
    ladder if you need HERBS, a FILE, or RED CHEMICAL.
    
    **UPPER FACTORY BOILER**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: ONE ZOMBIE
    
    Run forward and pick up the FILE off the dead body.  Turn the corridor a few
    times and you'll find a RED CHEMICAL capsule to use if you for some reason
    didn't refill it in the BLUE LAB, and the ZOMBIE nearby.  Complete the circle
    and you'll find two GREEN HERBS.

    There's some HANDGUN BULLETS on the floor here.  Next to the bed are some
    NAPALM GRENADES to ignore and on the bed are some INK RIBBONs for use with
    typewriter.  There's a FIRST-AID SPRAY on the other side of the room, along
    with a GREEN HERB and a RED HERB, take what you can just in case.  Pick up the
    FILE next to the door before you head on through.

    and you can't use the gondola.  Continuing to the left you will find some
    SHOTGUN SHELLs and a FILE next to them. Clear over on the opposite end of the
    room, there's a lift.  Before using it, equip Rebecca with her MAGNUM and Billy
    with his SHOTGUN.  Make sure both characters are standing on the lift or else
    you'll be separated.

    |Just 'cause these suckers never really die anyway.  The surroundings don't   |
    |make it any easier to circle him either.  I'd control Rebecca for this one   |
    |since she has less stamina.  There's a really simple way of dealing with him |
    |and that's by shooting him with either the MAGNUM or the SHOTGUN and then    |
    |running around to the other side of him as he growls and winces in pain (for |
    |better results, don't run around the claw side).  He'll try to turn around   |
    |and as soon as he does you should blast him again with your weapon of choice.|
    |He'll do his thing again, and you can repeat the process as much as you care |
    |to with little difficulty (or such was my case).  Even though he's the big   |
    |badass of the RE series and is supposed to be tougher the second time around,|
    |it isn't too difficult to get around him without being hit.  When he finally |
    |falls down, he'll struggle a bit, but won't get up, and the music will die.  |
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Beyond where the TYRANT popped out, there's a button on the wall to push, which
    will drop a ladder...

    Walk forward a little and you'll find the MOTHERBOARD sitting on the floor.
    There's nothing else up here, despite creepy music, so just turn back.
    
    **EQUIPMENT ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Give Rebecca the SHOTGUN and SHOTGUN SHELLS (or the GRENADE LAUNCHER, if you
    kept it), then transfer the MAGNUM and some HANGUN BULLETS to Billy, then split
    up, making sure Rebecca has the MOTHERBOARD.  From this point on, feel free to
    ditch Rebecca's HANDGUN whenever, since she won't be using it anymore.  Make
    her take the lift up.
    
    **GONDOLA ROOM**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA

    Use the glowing panel and turn the lever so it changes the configuration of the

    The CRAWLER will charge you as soon as you enter.  After you've blasted it,
    move forward and you'll find more ACID GRENADES, again, useless.  Use the blue
    capsule nearby and combine that with your red chemical to get SULFURIC ACID.
    Then grab the INDUSTRIAL WATER on the other counter combine it with the
    SULFURIC ACID to get BATTERY FLUID in your mixing set.  Unlock the nearby door,
    this leads back to the DRAINAGE ROOM.  Go down the stairs instead.
    
    **CRAWLER STORAGE**
    CHARACTER: REBECCA
    
    Fun... so this is where they're keeping the buggers.  There's something on the

    At the end of the first part, you'll find two GREEN HERBs here, so heal up or
    just make certain that you're at full.  Climb down the ladder and run across.
    The LURKER will jump out of the water, just keep running, it can instantly kill
    you whenever it wants to.  Take the ladder up and through the door.
    
    **GENERATOR ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BILLY
    ENEMIES: TWO NAKED ZOMBIES
    
    To your left are the NAKED ZOMBIES, a box of SHOTGUN SHELLS, and a door you
    can't open.  In front of you is a box of HANDGUN BULLETS and a door you can
    open.  Get rid of the ZOMBIES as you'll be back here sooner or later to go
    through that door.  In the meantime, go through the door in front of you.
    
    **CRAWLER STORAGE**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    ENEMIES: TWO PLAGUE CRAWLERS (but not just yet)
    
    Meet up with Rebecca again and go over to where the shiny was on the shelf.
    You can give Rebecca a boost and have her pick up the EMPTY BATTERY, combine
    that with her BATTERY FLUID in the MIXING SET to get a HI-POWER BATTERY.  After
    she gets down, the CRAWLERS jump out of their tubes to come mess with you.  The
    HANDGUN/SHOTGUN duo works quite well here, nothing to worry about.  Go back up
    the stairs.

    Billy will pick up the KEYCARD.  At this point, if you want to, get all the
    healing items you think you'll need, then come back and go down the way you
    came.  Just know that if you do some running around now, there are going to be
    enemies again in the places you've already cleared.
    
    **WATER CONTROL ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Last run through here!
    
    **STAIRS**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Last chance to squish leeches!
    
    **DRAINAGE ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Back through the other door.
    
    **LARVA STORAGE**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Down the stairs, again....
    
    **CRAWLER STORAGE**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Now we're getting somewhere... go through this door.
    
    **GENERATOR ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Go around the generator and to the door at the end.  Use the KEYCARD, enter.
    
    **FENCE PASSAGEWAY**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    The traditional calm before the storm... at the end you'll find some MAGNUM
    ROUNDS.  Equip the MAGNUM for Billy and the SHOTGUN for Rebecca.
    
    **MARCUS ROOM**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    A cut scene will occur that fills most of the plot holes while adding a few
    bits of confusion (and honestly, how many times do I have to hear the phrases
    "inferno of hate", "you'll pay for what you've done" and "you can't be"?).
    After this speech Marcus will seem to get sick, or at least I wouldn't normally
    consider vomitting up leeches and mutating as a normal everyday occurence
    (whether this is intentional or the virus is making him do it is up to you, his
    expressions are a bit startled, but he says nothing).  Forget it, it's boss
    time again.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |+[BOSS FIGHT #6: MARCUS]+                                                    |
    |+[DIFFICULTY: MEDIUM]+                                                       |
    |For the purposes of this battle, I'd stay away from MOLOTOV COCKTAILS.  I    |
    |know that they've been effective on leech-based monsters in the past, but as |
    |far as I've seen they've been as effective as the KNIFE (as in not at all).  |
    |I'll admit it, there isn't a lot of strategy you can use to get around this  |
    |guy.  Like previous leech monsters, his limbs are made of silly putty and    |
    |like to slap you around a bit from a distance.  Partway through the battle a |
    |few tendrils will come out of his back and he will sometimes pick you up and |
    |suck on you for a bit, like any good leech monster, though I don't think it  |
    |heals him.  The combo of MAGNUM/SHOTGUN works pretty nicely on the creature, |
    |not that you're afforded many alternatives.  The fight itself isn't terribly |
    |difficult, but his attacks will hurt you pretty badly, hence the medium      |
    |ranking.                                                                     |
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There will be two shiny objects on the floor when you finish (there's nothing
    else here, so don't bother looking), so have one character pick up each.
    They're both SHAFT KEYs.  Being the clever programers they are, Capcom decided
    to install this device on the other end of the room which requires you to have
    one character turn each key in opposite panels.  Split them up and figure it
    out.  If it doesn't work immediately, make sure that the character with the
    silver key is on the right and the character with the gold key is on the left.
    
    **STORAGE**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    Here, I would highly recommend saving at the typewriter next to you, and
    picking up the HANDGUN BULLETS next to it, just trust me on this.  Further down
    the walkway in front of you, there are some GRENADES (useless), some
    SHOTGUN SHELLS, two FIRST-AID SPRAYs, and a GREEN HERB accompanied by a RED
    HERB.  They are all here for very good reasons and if you have run out of ammo
    for the MAGNUM then you might as well ditch it as well if you need to get the
    healing goodies because it's coming on final boss time because let's face it,
    the last save area usually looks something like this.  Transfer most of the
    firepower to Billy and as many healing items as you can spare, but leave
    Rebecca with the MAGNUM if it has anything left and the MOLOTOV COCKTAILS as an
    equiped weapon otherwise (unlike the last battle, these are rather effective).
    After you're done, head around the other way and use the panel on the elevator
    platform.
    
    This section can take from half an hour to forty-five minutes at a good pace.
    
    **HELIPORT**
    CHARACTER: BOTH
    
    On your way up to this place, you'll have a cut scene or two involving the
    leech queen chasing after you and the obligatory self-destruct sequence being
    started.  Always fun.  Soon you'll arrive at the top, big friggin' place,
    innit?  Cue dramatic music.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |+[BOSS FIGHT #7: LEECH QUEEN]+                                               |
    |+[DIFFICULTY: EASY]+                                                         |
    |The isn't much to this boss.  I'd recommend against controlling Rebecca so   |
    |you can get the maximum damage out of your MOLOTOVs later, Billy will need   |
    |his ammo for the next section.  Just fire away and dodge when it tries to    |
    |jump at you.  This creature is known to spray acid all over at you, and      |
    |sometimes when it jumps on you, it won't be easy to get up again.  The battle|
    |is rather short, but make sure both characters are healed well by the end,   |
    |since Rebecca will be taking off soon...                                     |
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There will be a short cut scene involving the sunlight hurting the
    photosensitive leech queen.  Rebecca will get the bright idea to run about
    opening the valves to let the sun in and you'll get a FILE.  Time for round
    two...
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |+[BOSS FIGHT #8: LEECH QUEEN (2)]+                                           |
    |+[DIFFICULTY: MEDIUM]+                                                       |
    |This battle is a huge pain.  Why Rebecca, the weaker of the characters, is   |
    |trying to run around rapidly turning valves is beyond me.  You cannot control|
    |Rebecca, but you can switch to her in the inventory allowing for the use of  |
    |your healing items.  Transfer what MOLTOVs you have left to Billy and have   |
    |him use them if the leech queen gets too close.  The object here is not to   |
    |smash up the queen with whatever you've got, but to keep her away from       |
    |Rebecca for as long as you can so that Rebecca can operate the valves.  The  |
    |queen's tactics are much the same as before, she'll leap at you and smash you|
    |up and she'll spray acid in all directions.  She can't turn too easily       |
    |though, so you can get behind her and shoot while she has trouble backing up |
    |or turning to face you.  While you should follow Rebecca from location to    |
    |location, DO NOT GET TOO CLOSE TO HER.  If you do, the queen can and will    |
    |corner both of you, sometimes leaving Rebecca running in place trying to     |
    |reach a valve and you unable to move or sufficiently distract the queen as   |
    |well.  Guard Rebecca, but keep far enough away to avoid having this happen.  |
    |The battle will do some serious damage to you, but overall, it's not         |
    |difficult, persay.                                                           |
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Enjoy the final cut scene, followed by the convenient appearance of a magnum
    and trademark one-liner before smashing up the big bad monster.  Come now, as a
    horror game, it wouldn't be complete without it.  Some minor details will be
    added as Rebecca and Billy find themselves in the woods overlooking none other
    than the same mansion we will find ourselves in for the next (previous?) game.
    You've done well, and, in accordance with the timer, this section shouldn't
    have taken any longer than five minutes or so.
    
    =================
    =  07: REWARDS  =
    =================
    
    For completing the game in normal or hard mode under certain time constraints,
    you can get some fabulous prizes, some of which make the game quite boring, but
    at least you can claim you did it and you aren't required to use them.
    
    D (9:01 or more): Leech Hunter and Closet Key
    C (7:01-9:00): Leech Hunter and Closet Key
    B (5:01-7:00): Leech Hunter and Closet Key
    A (3:31-5:00): Submachine Gun, Leech Hunter, Closet Key
    S (3:30 or less): Rocket Launcher, Leech Hunter, Submachine gun, and Closet Key
    
    
    In RE0, there seem to be no punishments for using First-Aid Sprays (or healing,
    for that matter) or saving too frequently.  I can vouch for the sprays, I think
    I used one on my S-rank run, but the saving I can not as easily say, other than
    I saved five times.  Even though the game might not seem as scary in some
    respects, it is harder, and they do give you credit for that.
    
    LEECH HUNTER
    
    This is the mini-game (a big mini-game, bigger than Mercenaries in RE3) that
    you unlock by default.  The goal is to find 100 leech charms in the training
    facility using primarily what you're given, which is two handguns and a lot of
    ammo.  The game says you cannot ditch items once you get them, and considering
    charms stack in tens, that could be tricky.  More information as I decipher it.
    
    CLOSET KEY
    
    The key unlocks a small cabinet in the HUNTING GUN ROOM.  Rebecca's alternate
    outfits are a mostly leather outfit and a cowgirl outfit.  Billy only gets a
    blue suit, but has a pair of sunglasses to go with.  Either outfit you can also
    see using the Leech Hunter game, but know that changing the outfit does change
    the item layout slightly (herbs, that I've noticed).
    
    SUBMACHINE GUN
    
    Takes up two item slots, but can be a nice alternative to the handgun.  Have
    your partner take the custom handgun and you'll be set.  Doesn't have any
    additional ammo, unless you complete the Leech Hunter game with (I think) a
    minimum of one charm.  More on that ammo some other time.
    
    ROCKET LAUNCHER
    
    For all my complaining about its appearance, its still the strongest weapon in
    the game and no one will deny that.  Its ammo is infinite too, so there's a lot
    of potential for destruction in it.
    
    ======================
    =  08: LEECH HUNTER  =
    ======================
    
    Leech Hunter is a unique game based on a sort of scavenger hunt premise.  Dr.
    James Marcus has hidden 100 Leech Charms (50 blue for Billy, 50 green for
    Rebecca) in his training facility and its up to our team to hunt them down.
    It can be found in the Extra Menu of a reloaded complete game.
    
     -----
    |NOTES|
     -----
    
    *Leech Charms stack in tens and CANNOT be discarded once you pick them up.
     This means that by the end of your run, you'll probably just have a HANDGUN,
     so play smart.
    *All doors except the knight doors have been reset for this game.  This means
     that you'll have to find the keys in all new locations, occasionally at great
     risk to yourself.
    *Once you get a certain number of leech charms, the enemies will reset, meaning
     that just because you've cleaned out an area doesn't mean it will stay clean.
     write this assuming you picked the default costumes.
    *You must exit through the mansion's front door to complete this game.  Leeches
     on a dead body don't count.
    *Each character starts with their HANDGUN, 200 HANDGUN BULLETS, and a FIRST-
     AID SPRAY default.
    
    WARNING: The game's placement of certain items and the colors of leech charms
    can be completely RANDOM at times.  This will try to reflect that, but there
    are some things that I just haven't seen yet.
    
     -------
    |REWARDS|
     -------
    
    1-29:  A SUB-MACHINE GUN CLIP is added to your inventory the next time you play
           (must have A-rank and SUB-MACHINE GUN)
    30-59: HANDGUNS (Rebecca's, Billy's, and Custom) have infinite ammo
    60-89: HUNTING RIFLE has infinite ammo
    90-99: You will get  (Barry's hand cannon from REMake)
    100:   Infinite Ammo for all weapons
    
     -----------
    |WALKTHROUGH|
     -----------
    
    "You must survive in order to expose this nightmare..."
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    Straight ahead of you are a couple of HERBS, two greens or a green and a blue.
    There are five leech charms in this room of varying colors, but because this
    area doesn't have enemies that can regenerate, I don't recommend picking any of
    them up until the very end.
    
    This guide will assume a "kill now, ask questions later" posture, which means,
    basically, that I'm going to have you run through and kill everything BEFORE
    you start collecting leeches.
    
    This works out for the best because it becomes harder to lug around the more
    heavy-duty weapons while you're also carrying around leech charms, which you
    can't drop or exchange.
    
    First, climb up both sets of stairs and go through the double doors at the top.
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    
    Again, there are leech charms here, but we're going to ignore those for the
    immediate future as there's just no reason to pick them up.  Don't start
    picking up the leech charms until I tell you to.
    
    For now, let's just focus on some of the major issues, namely, unlocking
    every area and getting sufficient firepower to continue on.  Firepower comes
    first, so go through the knight door on the left side of the room.
    
    **NARROW HALLWAY**
    ENEMIES: THREE HUNTERS
    
    This may seem a little absurd to you, but these HUNTERS that come around the
    corners can be easily dispatched by firing on them with the standard gun in
    alternating patterns to ensure that they can't make any serious attacks.  You
    will take some damage here (most likely), but you still have healing items and
    will pick up another in the next area.  Continue on and enter the door at the
    end (the door midway is just for show).
    
    If the whole process spooks you too much, well, put Billy on point.
    
    **INFIRMARY**
    ENEMIES: FIVE ZOMBIES
    
    Ah, here we are.  Five ZOMBIES will come stumbling in from the other side, but
    they're not hard to dispatch.  Kill them all, but if you're running low on
    ammo, don't reload.  Instead, grab the CUSTOM HANDGUN off one of the beds, and
    give it to Rebecca (remember, Billy is a better shot).  On the counter, there's
    either a FIRST-AID SPRAY (very good) or a BLUE HERB (not so much).
    
    **NARROW HALLWAY**
    
    Back to...
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    
    All right, now we're moving on to keys.  Don't worry, there's some more
    weapons along the way.  Head out the double doors.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    First, go through the door on the right side of the upper level.  You may want
    to send just one character in to save a little ammo.
    
    **BLUE STUDY**
    ENEMIES: FOUR CROWS
    CHARACTER: MAIN (?)
    
    There are a bunch of CROWS flying around in here, so try to take them all out.
    When you're done, there's a HANDGUN on the table, which is almost like picking
    up free ammo, less what you used on the crows.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    Go down the stairs and into the trap door at the base level.
    
    **MANSION SEWER TUNNEL**
    
    On your way to the other side here, you'll find some SHOTGUN SHELLS (14) and,
    buried in the water near them, a SHOTGUN.
    
    **TRAIN WRECK ROOM**
    ENEMIES: FIVE HUNTERS
    
    More fun.  Except if you keep up the alternating shots pattern like before,
    with the added firepower of the shotgun on your side, this shouldn't be much of
    a fight.
    
    When you've cleaned up here, head over to the far side of the room by where the
    elevator should be and pick up the FIRE KEY.  There's also a GREEN HERB by a
    metal object near the door.
    
    **MANSION SEWER TUNNEL**
    
    Back up and out of here...
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    Head across the hall and go through the door on the opposite side...
    
    **DINING ROOM**
    ENEMIES: THREE ZOMBIES
    
    Two ZOMBIES coming in from the left, one from the right.  Switch back to the
    handgun and plug them all, pick up the KNIFE on the left (yes, it is useful),
    unlock the fire door, then leave the same way you came in.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    Head up the stairs and through the double doors again to get to.
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    
    Head left and enter the...
    
    **ART HALLWAY**
    ENEMIES: THREE HUNTERS
    
    You should be accustomed to this sort of thing by now.  Stay where it's safe
    around the corner, and keep plugging until all three are floored.  Unlock the
    fire door at the end here, then toss the key.  Enter.
    
    **BROWN STUDY**
    ENEMIES: FOUR ZOMBIES
    
    There are four ZOMBIES in here, all of them lying on the floor feigning death
    around the room.  Knife them and exit.
    
    
    **ART HALLWAY**
    
    Head through the double doors along the way.
    
    **LIBRARY**
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    One is near you, one is farther away near the left.  Go through the candle
    door when you're done.
    
    **LIBRARY ANNEX**
    ENEMIES: THREE ZOMBIES
    
    One ZOMBIE will probably chew on your leg as soon as you open the door.  The
    rest are less dangerous to deal with.  Pick up the HANDGUN BULLETS (30) by
    the candle on the upper level before you go.
    
    **LIBRARY**
    
    Back out...
    
    **ART HALLWAY**
    
    To the right...
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    
    Back out the double doors...
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    A little bit more firepower is needed for much of the rest of the mansion, so
    head down to the landing and enter where the portrait originally was.
    
    **UNDERGROUND HALL**
    ENEMIES: FIVE SPIDERS
    
    Terrific.  Well, kill the SPIDERS throughout the area, but avoid using up the
    shotgun ammo if you can, as you'll be needing it soon.  Use those healing items
    in the main hall to your advantage if you suffer any significant damage, but
    otherwise take the first door on the right once you've finished playing
    exterminator.
    
    **MONITOR ROOM**
    ENEMIES: FOUR ZOMBIES
    
    Four military-type ZOMBIES, all far too close to you.  Knock them down quickly
    and switch to the ones standing when you can.  Before you head out the other
    door in here, equip the shotgun, and take a deep breath.
    
    **TORTURE ROOM**
    ENEMIES: FOUR HUNTERS
    
    Fortunately, the HUNTERS aren't too good with corners, and you can usually
    get all of them without them hitting you up too bad.  There's another SHOTGUN
    in here for your other character, more SHOTGUN SHELLS (14), and a GREEN HERB.
    I think that makes this worth the trip.
    
    **MONITOR ROOM**
    
    Head out again.
    
    **UNDERGROUND HALL**
    
    This time, go across into the other room in this hallway.
    
    **OBSERVATION ROOM**
    ENEMIES: TWO ELIMINATORS
    
    You can get by here with one shotgun and one pistol, which is actually how I'd
    recommend taking out the ELIMINATORS.  They're right in front of you as you
    enter, so it's not too hard.  Just try not to waste any ammo on their
    exceedingly long death animations.
    
    **CHAIN ROOM**
    ENEMIES: TWO ELIMINATORS
    
    Same pattern here, with the added twist of having a larger room.  Make sure you
    re-align your shot as they jump from place to place and try to hit both of them
    with your shotgun blasts when you can.  On the other side of the room, you'll
    find either a MANGUM and MAGNUM ROUNDS (4) or a SUB-MACHINE GUN.  Both are
    effective weapons, but you may have to restart to get what you want.  Leave
    with it in hand.  Fortunately, these are the only eliminators you have to
    fight.
    
    **OBESERVATION ROOM**
    
    Head out...
    
    **UNDERGROUND HALL**
    
    Through here...
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    Head up the stairs to the left and take the door on the right.
    
    **MEETING ROOM**
    ENEMIES: FIVE ZOMBIES
    
    Plug all the ZOMBIES until they die.  All of them come single file from the
    left side, so it's no trouble.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    Now hang a right and go through the door you passed a moment ago.
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    ENEMIES: FOUR PLAGUE CRAWLERS
    
    It's the typical PLAGUE CRAWLER strategy here.  Stay just out of reach at the
    top of the stairs and shoot at them until all four die.  Continue on up and
    head through the knight doors.  There might also be some additional ammo for
    your big gun here, but usually it's a very small amount.
    
    **OBSERVATORY**
    ENEMIES: FOUR ZOMBIES
    
    Take out the ZOMBIE on the same level, then run over to the ladder and take
    out the ones below.  One of them is lying down, so it may prove a little
    difficult.  There's a GREEN HERB down there with them, if you need it, but
    you probably won't have the room.
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    
    Go down the stairs and into the door on the left.
    
    **ART STORAGE ROOM**
    ENEMIES: TWO PLAGUE CRAWLERS
    
    Take out the CRAWLERS quickly (shotgun) and go through the water door (no
    key!).
    
    **LEECH ZOMBIE HALL**
    ENEMIES: Guess.
    
    Equip your big gun and head on through.  You'll find the room's namesake around
    the corner, yet again, so blast it and try to avoid geting leech juices on you
    by exiting the room if it's about to explode.
    
    Ignore the first door from the entrance and go through the second.
    
    **PIANO BAR**
    ENEMIES: THREE ZOMBIES
    
    All the ZOMBIES in this area are on the floor, two by the piano in front of
    you, and one in the secret passage.  Knife them all, and pick up the MIXED
    HERBS on the floor.  You probably need them.
    
    **LEECH ZOMBIE HALL**
    
    If one of your characters is severely damaged, give the healthy one the magnum
    and take a right through the last door.
    
    **DIM HALL**
    ENEMIES: LEECH ZOMBIE
    
    'Nother one.  Wait for it to transform then blast it as much as you can.  If
    it looks ready to explode, head out the door again and rejoin your partner.
    Once you have the all clear again, head to the right and through the door
    there.
    
    **RUINED MEETING ROOM**
    ENEMIES: FIVE ZOMBIES
    
    Three ZOMBIES on the left, two on the right, one of which is crawling.  Blast
    'em all and exit.
    
    **DIM HALL**
    
    Now for the other room...
    
    **RUSTED ROOM**
    ENEMIES: TWO HUNTERS
    
    Bust the shotgun out on these HUNTERS, then pick up the GRENADE LAUNCHER
    nearby. Pity it only has one round.
    
    **DIM HALL**
    
    Back out to...
    
    **LEECH ZOMBIE HALL**
    
    Basically, we're ignoring the other room as it's worthless, so head on out
    the water door.
    
    **ART STORAGE ROOM**
    
    Out the door...
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    
    On the left...
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    All right, we're into the final stretch here.  Unfortunately, ammo's running
    thin at the moment.  Nothing we can do about that though.  Head back down both
    sets of stairs and through the double doors on the left, back to...
    
    **DINING ROOM**
    
    Take a left and go to...
    
    **BOILER HALL**
    ENEMIES: TWO ZOMBIES
    
    All ZOMBIES here are floored, so knife 'em and continue to the right.
    
    **FACILITY STORAGE**
    ENEMIES: FOUR HUNTERS
    
    This is a real pain, so bust out the MAGNUM on them and be sure your aim is
    dead on.  There's one HUNTER that really likes to stay around the corner, where
    there's a GREEN HERB, so be sure to get it.  Climb the ladder when you're done.
    
    **NARROW BALCONY**
    ENEMIES: FOUR ZOMBIES
    
    ZOMBIES are blocking your path to the other door (which you'll need to go
    through), so take 'em all out, unlock the door, and enter.
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    
    Head out the double doors.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    At this point, you're usually pretty well screwed in terms of ammo.  This may
    lead you to want to pull off a suicide run, one character, to the west end of
    the first floor.  Make sure you have a full healing item and run to the FIRST
    FLOOR LONG HALLWAY, where there's a LEECH ZOMBIE.  Take the first door to the
    BATHROOM from there, where you'll meet up with another LEECH ZOMBIE, but have
    the chance to pick up either SHOTGUN SHELLS (14) or a SUB-MACHINE GUN CLIP,
    along with some HANDGUN BULLETS (30).  If you really want to make a run for the
    OPERATIONS CONTROL ROOM, you can also find a single GREEN HERB or one of each
    kind of HERB.  It's generally worth it, and you can avoid getting damaged here
    if you make it out before they transform, but it's still not a good idea to
    mess around over there.  There's no leech charms in it anyway.
    
    Once you've decided, head back downstairs and back into...
    
    **DINING ROOM**
    
    Take a left.
    
    **BOILER HALL**
    
    Another left, and down the stairs.
    
    **STATUE ROOM**
    ENEMIES: TWO HUNTERS
    
    Decent place to put your GRENADE LAUNCHER and SHOTGUN combo to use.  The first
    HUNTER is in the small hallway to the left of the statue puzzle.  There's also
    a GREEN HERB there.  The second HUNTER is further along in the other hallway.
    Fortunately, these are the last ones we'll see.  Let's explore the area where
    we found the first hunter.  Take the first door on the right.
    
    **RUINED BEDROOM**
    ENEMIES: THREE ZOMBIES
    
    I'm not sure if this is an easter egg or what, but one of the ZOMBIES in here
    is wearing a S.T.A.R.S. uniform.  Anyway, try to do the shotgun up trick to
    blast their heads off, then pick up the GREEN HERB and RED HERB (sometimes it's
    two GREENs, or so I've heard.  Sometimes there's also a GRENADE LAUNCHER with
    30 rounds in here.
    
    **STATUE ROOM**
    
    Head to the right...
    
    **BUNKROOM**
    ENEMIES: FOUR ZOMBIES
    
    Again with the shotgun tricks.  There are two ZOMBIES in front of you and two
    beyond them.  There's also a couple of GREEN HERBS, which is just dandy.
    
    **STATUE ROOM**
    
    Now head to the end of the hall where the second hunter was.
    
    **UNDERGROUND STORAGE**
    ENEMIES: THREE ZOMBIES
    
    Here, I'd say it's okay to use the handgun if the other character is knifing.
    There's three ZOMBIES here, but they aren't too dangerous and you may soon
    need the shotgun for other purposes.  These are your last ZOMBIES.
    
    **STATUE ROOM**
    
    First door on the left here...
    
    **SUBTERRANEAN HALL**
    ENEMIES: THREE SPIDERS
    
    Ignore the SPIDERS, for the moment.  You have a slightly bigger priority target
    in the room on the right.
    
    **WATERFALL STORAGE**
    ENEMIES: TWO PLAGUE CRAWLERS
    
    Take these out by whatever means necessary, (possibly the 30 round GRENADE
    LAUNCHER, if it's in here) then exit.  These are the last enemies you HAVE to
    kill, but...
    
    **SUBTERRANEAN HALL**
    ENEMIES: THREE SPIDERS
    
    Take these out with the GRENADE LAUNCHER.  FUN!  Let the collecting begin
    by heading through the other door here.
    
    **BATTLE CONTROL ROOM**
    
    There's going to be a charm up at the top of the stairs by the cabinet.
    Can't unlock the areas below though, so no fun there.
    
    **SUBTERRANEAN HALL**
    
    Head across back to...
    
    **WATERFALL STORAGE**
    
    Three charms here, two in front of you, one by the box.  Head out.
    
    **SUBTERRANEAN HALL**
    
    Climb the stairs...
    
    **STATUE ROOM**
    
    Hang a left...
    
    **UNDERGROUND STORAGE**
    
    Three charms in here, strewn all around.  Take 'em.
    
    **STATUE ROOM**
    
    Back to the other hallway, take the first door on the right.
    
    **RUINED BEDROOM**
    
    Three charms in here, most of them ahead of you.
    
    **STATUE ROOM**
    
    Take a right...
    
    **BUNKROOM**
    
    Two charms on the bunks.
    
    **STATUE ROOM**
    
    Head out the door going up to...
    
    **BOILER HALL**
    
    You should find another three charms here if you follow it to the end.  Take
    the door on the right (the left, we'll come back to later).
    
    **DINING ROOM**
    
    Three charms, one across from the fireplace and one on the other side of the
    table, and one by the fire door (which you should enter).
    
    **KITCHEN**
    
    This is a pain, because there's charms hidden all over that place.  Look on top
    of the tables, under them, on the floor, in the sink, on the stove top, and
    everywhere in between, but don't come out of there until you have seven charms.
    
    **DINING ROOM**
    
    Out the door ahead.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    We're still ignoring the charms here, so head up the stairs and go in the door
    on the left side.
    
    **BLUE STUDY**
    
    Charms in a tree near the table and in the cabinet where you found the crank.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    Head across to the door on the other side.
    
    **MEETING ROOM**
    
    Three charms next to the fireplace.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    Head right to the next door and into...
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    
    Head up the stairs and pick up a charm by the broken ladder, two charms by the
    locked door, and one by the knight door.  Enter that.
    
    **OBSERVATORY**
    
    Pick up a charm along the path, then four more in the lower part of the
    telescope.
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    
    Down and into the room on the left.
    
    **ART STORAGE ROOM**
    
    One charm on the statue, one on a stack of paintings.  Through the water door.
    
    **LEECH ZOMBIE HALL**
    
    Go through the second door.
    
    **PIANO BAR**
    
    Four charms in here, all in plain view.
    
    **LEECH ZOMBIE HALL**
    
    Head right...
    
    **DIM HALL**
    
    Head right...
    
    **RUINED MEETING ROOM**
    
    Three charms strewn about on the tables, near the clamp, on the sill, etc.
    
    **DIM HALL**
    
    To the other room...
    
    **RUSTED ROOM**
    
    Some swear there are charms in here.  I've never seen any, but it may have just
    been the way my version randomized.
    
    **DIM HALL**
    
    Right to...
    
    **LEECH ZOMBIE HALL**
    
    Out the water door...
    
    **ART STORAGE ROOM**
    
    Across...
    
    **BIG CAGE ROOM**
    
    Take a left and re-enter...
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    Now, let's go down the stairs and back into the sewers...
    
    **MANSION SEWER TUNNEL**
    
    Nothing to see here...
    
    **TRAIN WRECK ROOM**
    
    Paydirt.  Two charms are in here, in plain view again.
    
    **MANSION SEWER TUNNEL**
    
    Back out...
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    Let's explore the area behind where the portrait was now.
    
    **UNDERGROUND HALL**
    
    Four charms strewn through here.  Take the first door on the right.
    
    **MONITOR ROOM**
    
    Head through here...
    
    **TORTURE ROOM**
    
    Couple of charms here, obvious places.
    
    **MONITOR ROOM**
    
    Out.
    
    **UNDERGROUND HALL**
    
    Head across here to...
    
    **OBSERVATION ROOM**
    
    On through to...
    
    **CHAIN ROOM**
    
    Two charms.  Give them nice homes.
    
    **OBSERVATION ROOM**
    
    Head out.
    
    **UNDERGROUND HALL**
    
    Up the stairs.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    We're backtracking a little now, so go down and to the left into...
    
    **DINING ROOM**
    
    Left again...
    
    **BOILER HALL**
    
    Take a right...
    
    **FACILITY STORAGE**
    
    Three charms, on the stool, and two in the enclave.  Up the ladder to...
    
    **NARROW BALCONY**
    
    Three charms are on the railing nearby, one charm shortly after the alcove, and
    two near your target door.  Collect all six.
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    
    Getting into the home stretch.  Excited yet?  Take the knight door.
    
    **NARROW HALLWAY**
    
    Four charms in here.
    
    **INFIRMARY**
    
    And one charm in here.
    
    **NARROW HALLWAY**
    
    Re-enter...
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    
    Now take the other side door ahead...
    
    **ART HALLWAY**
    
    Six charms in here on your way to the fire door.
    
    **BROWN STUDY**
    
    All are on the other side, so pick one out of the tree and three out of the
    fireplace.
    
    **ART HALLWAY**
    
    Through the double doors to...
    
    **LIBRARY**
    
    Lots of charms here.  One by where the map was, one under a table to the left
    of there, one on the lift, one by the computer, and one on the table near the
    door.  Head through the candle door.
    
    **LIBRARY ANNEX**
    
    That poor guy is still on the floor here.  Well, he ain't coming to life any
    time soon, so jump up on the platform and collect your two charms.
    
    **LIBRARY**
    
    Well, head out.
    
    **ART HALLWAY**
    ENEMIES: ZOMBIES!
    
    Oh cuss.  Run out of here as quickly as you can.  Surely, if the enemies have
    respawned, we must be doing something right!
    
    **CONFERENCE ROOM**
    
    Pick up the charm by the scaffolding between the doors, two charms in the desk
    area and one on the podium.  Just four here.
    
    **MANSION MAIN HALL**
    
    Which means six here.  Sigh.  Pick up two off the scales, one on the opposite
    side of the top level, one on the landing, one by the trapdoor, and one
    opposite the typewriter.  Now you should have all 100, so exit through the
    front door.
    
    This house is clear.
    
    Now beat it with regard to the other four rankings and you should be set.
    (Yeah, even if you get all the leeches, they won't reward you with the other
    rankings.  That would be why they call it a nightmare.).

    know about responses to           \
    the crustacean t-virus.           /
    There's a lot of interesting      \
    research left...                  /
                                      \
    Depending on the species          /
    and nurturing conditions,         \
    only minute doses of "t" bring    /
    about remarkable changes in       \
    solidity, size,                   /
    multiplication of internal        \
    toxins and brain development.     /
    If these effects can be           \
    controlled, a powerful weapon     /
    could be produced.                \
                                      /
    But the sudden development        \
    of the shell results in           /
    a corresponding fragility.        \
    Certain areas become              /
    exceedingly weak.                 \
                                      /
    Problematically,                  \
    one of these areas                /
    is the head carapace.             \
                                      /
    This lab we are going to          \
    - were they pursuing              /
    the same research?                \
    It would certainly help to find   /
    data and samples that             \
    would help us in our research.    /

                June 19th             /
                                      \
    The day is finally                /
    approaching...                    \
    I am growing more anxious.        /
                                      \
    The Raccoon City newspapers       /
    and TV stations are full of       \
    reports about the bizarre         /
    murders in the suburbs.           \
                                      /
    It can't be the virus.  Can it?   \
    If it is...                       /
                                      \
    No, I can't think of that now.    /
    I have to concentrate on          \
    this investigation and            /
    make sure it goes smoothly.       \

    Research to date has shown        \

    |Pretty simple to beat, keep shooting at him until he cocks his head to the   |
    |side, then run fast in the opposite direction and continue fighting after    |
    |you've avoided the blow.  Between ten and fifteen shots will do him in, but  |
    |make sure you keep at a safe distance or else he'll use his rubbery arms to  |
    |tear you a whole set of new ones.  However, you don't NEED, to fight him, you|
    |can just run towards the stairs and it will have the same effect.  Just fight|
    |him for practice, if you think you need it.                                  |

    |+[DIFFICULTY: VERY EASY]+                                                    |
    |This guy isn't too hard, but I warn you, it'll take all of your newfound     |
    |firepower and a few handgun blasts before it decides to lay down and die.    |
    |Just like the PASSENGER'S DIARY hinted at, the key here is to stay close to  |
    |it, point down, and fire a blast in its face, but wait for it to come to you.|
    |It attacks if you go on the offensive, so there's no point in coming to it.  |
    |Your blasts will shock it backwards, keeping you safe anyway.  Just beware   |
    |that from time to time, it covers its face with its claws and charges at you.|
    |If it begins to do that, just quick turn and get out of there because your   |
    |shot won't do as much when it's covered.  Continue the pattern until it dies.|
    |On occasion, it'll do some claw swipes at you when in close range. It can    |
    |also impale you on its tail if you're too low on life, but that shouldn't    |
    |happen.  Once you kill the scorpion, the music will change, but stay away    |
    |from it until it is lying completely on the floor.  It can still do damage to|
    |you when it's flailing around.                                               |

    |+[BOSS FIGHT #2: CENTIPEDE]+                                                 |
    |+[DIFFICULTY: EASY]+                                                         |
    |I don't like this battle.  Doubt many people do, but the key here is to stay |
    |away and only shoot the centipede when it's facing you.  It has a set pattern|
    |it runs around in... it first runs around next to the cranks and comes out on|
    |the other side of the pillar, where it waits for a few seconds.  This is the |
    |time to shoot, but after a blast or two it will start running again (if it   |
    |shakes a bit after you shot it, you hit it where it counts).  At times, the  |
    |centipede will rear up and start shaking Rebecca around, though it might not |
    |always (in which case you can shoot immediately).  Don't shoot at it again   |
    |until a few seconds after it's done, if you want your shot line up properly. |
    |Periodically, one of your shots will make the centipede drop Rebecca, but    |
    |this doesn't seem to have much effect on the battle, aside from maybe        |
    |indicating the ammount of damage the it has taken. If it starts to shake     |
    |after the first shot, don't shoot at it again because it doesn't seem to do  |
    |any damage. Stay away from it at all costs, as the feet and tail can hurt you|
    |pretty badly if you aren't careful.  It will go forward, circle around the   |
    |pillar on the outside near the knight door, then come around again next to   |
    |the pool and stop again.  You should be backed up to where you're close to   |
    |the staircase, but can still see the centipede.  Move in as it stops, the    |
    |shots are more likely to count if you're closer, just make sure you stay away|
    |from the claws.  As you do more damage to it and it's close to dying, it will|
    |slow down noticably and won't stop in its tracks anymore when it's circling. |
    |After this, if you take too long to kill it, the centipede will crush and    |
    |kill Rebecca.  Otherwise, its pattern is infinite.  I don't know if there's a|
    |time limit on it before Rebecca dies (excluding when it slows down) or what, |
    |but staying as far away from the feet and tail as you can manage here is key.|
    |It should take all of your grenade shots plus about six hunting gun bursts to|
    |fell this beast, though it can take a little less if you're good.  You can   |
    |usually come through this battle unhurt.                                     |

    |+[BOSS FIGHT #3: GIANT BAT]+                                                 |
    |+[DIFFICULTY: EASY]+                                                         |
    |Are all bosses easy?  So far, yes.  I don't recommend using anything more    |
    |than the SHOTGUN on this fellow, it needs to be a little closer anyway to hit|
    |it with the GRENADE LAUNCHER (and those NAPALM GRENADES are too valuable, but|
    |if you have some ACIDs or GRENADEs left, hey, go for it).  The primary       |
    |difficulty you'll have with it is that it's a moving target.  So how do you  |
    |compensate?  After you've targeted him and started aiming up, hit L every    |
    |once in a while to realign your shot with where it's flying.  Shoot it when  |
    |you have a clean shot or it gets too close to you.  After the first few      |
    |shots, it will call out some of it's minions and targetting becomes a little |
    |more difficult.  If you want to shoot the little bats to fix that, go for it,|
    |I usually ignore them, they only come back anyway.  As for the giant bat's   |
    |actual pattern, it tends to circle a bit, then swoop down and claw at you.   |
    |Periodically, it will pick you up, lift you to some height, then drop you.   |
    |There's no real defense for the attacks, but if you shoot when it's close it |
    |will keep away for a while.  Six to twelve direct hits with the SHOTGUN will |
    |end the battle.                                                              |

    |+[DIFFICULTY: VERY EASY]+                                                    |
    |Ugh.  And in such close quarters too.  Make sure you have your MAGNUM handy, |
    |you should still have the extra rounds too.  The simple strategy here is to  |
    |circle the TYRANT and shoot while he's turning to catch up with you.  NEVER  |
    |CROSS HIS LINE OF SIGHT WHEN YOU CIRCLE HIM.  He'll only charge and attack   |
    |you.  Each shot you get on him that counts for something will end up stunning|
    |him, so don't fire at him when he's knocked back a little.  Also, you can    |
    |only seem to hit him from the front, so when he's turning towards you, you   |
    |can't him him.  You can't shoot him either when he's crouched down and about |
    |to charge you, so another strategy would be to wait until he does that and   |
    |run out of the way of the attack, then move back in front of him to shoot him|
    |in the chest, but with this strategy, you have to make absolutely certain you|
    |have enough room to run away without him slashing at you (this is my         |
    |preferred method).  If you stay out of range and fire when you can, you'll   |
    |easily defeat him.  Ten MAGNUM ROUNDS should do the job, and you can probably|
    |defeat him without getting hit.                                              |

    |+[DIFFICULTY: EASY]+                                                         |
    |Just 'cause these suckers never really die anyway.  The surroundings don't   |
    |make it any easier to circle him either.  I'd control Rebecca for this one   |
    |since she has less stamina.  There's a really simple way of dealing with him |
    |and that's by shooting him with either the MAGNUM or the SHOTGUN and then    |
    |running around to the other side of him as he growls and winces in pain (for |
    |better results, don't run around the claw side).  He'll try to turn around   |
    |and as soon as he does you should blast him again with your weapon of choice.|
    |He'll do his thing again, and you can repeat the process as much as you care |
    |to with little difficulty (or such was my case).  Even though he's the big   |
    |badass of the RE series and is supposed to be tougher the second time around,|
    |it isn't too difficult to get around him without being hit.  When he finally |
    |falls down, he'll struggle a bit, but won't get up, and the music will die.  |

    |+[BOSS FIGHT #6: MARCUS]+                                                    |
    |+[DIFFICULTY: MEDIUM]+                                                       |
    |For the purposes of this battle, I'd stay away from MOLOTOV COCKTAILS.  I    |
    |know that they've been effective on leech-based monsters in the past, but as |
    |far as I've seen they've been as effective as the KNIFE (as in not at all).  |
    |I'll admit it, there isn't a lot of strategy you can use to get around this  |
    |guy.  Like previous leech monsters, his limbs are made of silly putty and    |
    |like to slap you around a bit from a distance.  Partway through the battle a |
    |few tendrils will come out of his back and he will sometimes pick you up and |
    |suck on you for a bit, like any good leech monster, though I don't think it  |
    |heals him.  The combo of MAGNUM/SHOTGUN works pretty nicely on the creature, |
    |not that you're afforded many alternatives.  The fight itself isn't terribly |
    |difficult, but his attacks will hurt you pretty badly, hence the medium      |
    |ranking.                                                                     |

    |+[DIFFICULTY: EASY]+                                                         |
    |The isn't much to this boss.  I'd recommend against controlling Rebecca so   |
    |you can get the maximum damage out of your MOLOTOVs later, Billy will need   |
    |his ammo for the next section.  Just fire away and dodge when it tries to    |
    |jump at you.  This creature is known to spray acid all over at you, and      |
    |sometimes when it jumps on you, it won't be easy to get up again.  The battle|
    |is rather short, but make sure both characters are healed well by the end,   |
    |since Rebecca will be taking off soon...                                     |

    |+[DIFFICULTY: MEDIUM]+                                                       |
    |This battle is a huge pain.  Why Rebecca, the weaker of the characters, is   |
    |trying to run around rapidly turning valves is beyond me.  You cannot control|
    |Rebecca, but you can switch to her in the inventory allowing for the use of  |
    |your healing items.  Transfer what MOLTOVs you have left to Billy and have   |
    |him use them if the leech queen gets too close.  The object here is not to   |
    |smash up the queen with whatever you've got, but to keep her away from       |
    |Rebecca for as long as you can so that Rebecca can operate the valves.  The  |
    |queen's tactics are much the same as before, she'll leap at you and smash you|
    |up and she'll spray acid in all directions.  She can't turn too easily       |
    |though, so you can get behind her and shoot while she has trouble backing up |
    |or turning to face you.  While you should follow Rebecca from location to    |
    |location, DO NOT GET TOO CLOSE TO HER.  If you do, the queen can and will    |
    |corner both of you, sometimes leaving Rebecca running in place trying to     |
    |reach a valve and you unable to move or sufficiently distract the queen as   |
    |well.  Guard Rebecca, but keep far enough away to avoid having this happen.  |
    |The battle will do some serious damage to you, but overall, it's not         |
    |difficult, persay.                                                           |

    ==============================================
    =  13: UNANSWERED QUESTIONS / PARTING SHOTS  =
    ==============================================
    
    This is a section dedicated to random observations I've had concerning the
    events of this game.  Some of them are nitpicky, others are legitimate
    observations.  Others are just blatant speculation.  Inevitably, I'll
    collect some more.
    
    * THE ECLIPTIC EXPRESS
    
    We'll assume that the train itself is owned by Umbrella and for use by their
    employees, because why else would it have access to the Training Facility?  So,
    where was it going?  Some passengers were obviously headed for the Training
    Facility (how convenient), but not all...
    
    * HELICOPTER
    
    Engine failure?  How?  And who starts a major investigation after 10? (It can
    be assumed that they could have been on their way back, but still...)
    
    * INVESTIAGATION ORDERS
    
    The name William is evident, but the Bark seems slightly out of place.
    Possibly a mistranslation and meant to say William Birkin ordered the
    investigation.
    
    * CUT SCENE w/ BILLY AND EDWARD
    
    Billy assumes that Rebecca is with STARS, but considering that Billy has
    probably been wandering around the train for a while, and Edward only shows up
    afterwards, who told him about STARS when he was supposedly under military
    custody?  Maybe he just saw the helicopter crash and figured it out from the
    insignia...  No one really tells him about Umbrella either before they get to
    the Training Facility, but in their world Umbrella is a major company...  I
    make a point of this primarily because I'm assuming that either a) Bily isn't
    from around Racoon City (they could have been transferring him from anywhere)
    or b) he's been under military arrest or out of the country long enough for
    him to have no idea about STARS, or some combination of the two.
    
    * MARCUS' DIARY 1
    
    It would help if any of the files in this had a year to go with them.  We now
    have at least three people (I think) that would claim responsibility in
    creating the t-virus.  What does the "Progenitor" virus do on its own?  And how
    about Spencer?  Is the old man still alive or...
    
    * CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTE INMATES LIST
    
    Which came first, the criminals or the employees?  Did Marcus use criminals
    first as specimens or did this come later as he was revived and continued his
    research?  Was this where Billy was headed?  OR (shot in the dark) was he
    eventually to become part of the UBCS?  Hence, his familiarity with a few
    things...
    
    * BILLY SAVES REBECCA
    
    And, because it's worth asking, how did Rebecca use her walkie talkie while
    holding onto the rebar with one hand?
    
    * MANAGEMENT TRAINEE'S DIARY
    
    Could be interpretted as a bit of a peek into the potency of various forms of
    the t-virus.  In RE1, we saw the journal of a man who had been exposed to the
    virus and decayed slowly over the course of a few days.  Here, we see it happen
    over the course of what seems to be less than an hour.  The t-virus, while
    inhabitting the leeches it was partially created from, could be considerably
    more potent.  Hence, the troopers rising from the dead on the train almost
    immediately after being killed, if, of course, that event was not a flashback.
    
    * THE TYRANT
    
    Not really a loose end, in fact, it just might save us from various theories.
    You COULD say that the tyrant is, in fact, the previous tenant of the mystery
    tube in the double-locked room of the RE2 lab.  One problem, Wesker was going
    to the mansion to collect combat data for the tyrant (which was even released
    premature in RE1).  So what the bloody hell is it doing wandering around the
    factory?  Who let it out?
    
    * REBECCA FINDS BILLY
    
    Billy calls it "the mother virus", same thing it's called by some other notable
    people, but not in front of Billy.  Could be fluke, could be foreshadowing.
    
    * LEECH QUEEN
    
    The first we see it, it's knocking Billy out of the water.  The first we hear
    of it, it's Marcus telling about how it saved him and turned him into...
    well... whatever he is.  How was the leech queen created?  Where did it come
    from?  What's going on?
    
    * MARCUS
    
    As in all RE games, I question whether this guy is REALLY dead.  Consider this
    then: What exactly was in the large barricade of eggs in the train that bursts
    as you leave the blue passenger room?  There were already some leeches on the
    train still, and he couldn't have needed that many to take out the Umbrella
    operatives.  Not even considering the facility, which was in much closer
    proximity to Marcus' base.  Also, before Marcus transformed into the monster,
    he looked horrified at the fact that he was vomitting up leeches.  Why the hell
    would he have leeches breeding inside him anyway?  Even though it's a bit of a
    longshot, I believe that it's entirely possible that the Marcus monster you
    face at the end of the game is merely a HIGHLY sophisticated leech zombie,
    possibly created from the incredible excess of leech eggs laid on the train
    (side note: who/what the HELL laid them?).  In the scene with Birkin and
    Wesker, Marcus does not transform right in front of them, he uses his leeches
    to do it.  We never see him actually shape-shift until the final battle.  For
    all we know, (again, longshooting) Marcus himself could be incapable of
    transformation, and again, the final boss was just another zombie.
    Though I'd still like to know why Marcus went out of his way to smash up Billy
    and Rebecca when they had nothing to do with Umbrella.  Maybe it's just little
    forms of revenge for killing his/its children.
    
    * EXPLOSIONS!
    
    At the end.... along with the mystical elevator that leads to all places at
    once.  You figure it out....  Also, we are led to believe, as a possibility,
    that the Treatment Plant in RE0 is the same as in RE3.  This ignores the fact
    that there was kind of an explosion ripping through it at the end.  Maybe I've
    missed something... but it seems like rebuilding it might have been a better
    alternative to trying to drag a tyrant with a nasty hangover out of there.
    
    * THE GAME, OVERALL
    
    I liked this game.  Hell, I liked it enough to take it upon myself to write the
    FAQ/Walkthrough.  But compared to RE:Remake, I wasn't as impressed, originally.
    RE:Remake knocked me flat.  The lights, the shadows, the detail... the first
    time I went through I played certain parts and movies several times.
    Stylistically, RE0 scared me a little less.  Maybe that's just the lack of a
    big creature stalking you for most of the game in places you thought were safe
    (though, in theory, the leech zombies play a bit of that role). Mechanically,
    it works with a little less strategy in normal play.  Don't get me wrong, the
    variety of enemies and bosses is without equal, but mostly you fought in flat
    rooms, and there were no defense items to think about.  But after playing it
    through a few more times, I like it.  Some little parts, like being trapped
    with the rain falling down on you in the train, or having the trees rush past
    while hanging out on top of the train, were pretty damn cool.  The moving
    backgrounds were quite interesting and realistic in comparison to before.  I
    didn't always pick up on that when I was working.  The improvements graphically
    aren't as dramatic, but how could they be?  RE4, with its fully rendered
    enviroment, will definately be a sight to see.
    
    
    ====================================
    =  14: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS  =
    ====================================
    
    Q: Muchitsujo?
    
    A: ... It means chaos and disorder in Japanese.  I'm not Japanese myself,
    but I can never think of screen names for anything.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: Why did you write this?
    
    A: The first time I played through this I was reading a guide I wasn't too
    happy with for numerous reasons.  Mostly, I would play the game in spurts
    and then be redirected to a place from my save room that I couldn't remember
    how to get to.  I've always had fun with the RE series anyway, I thought I'd
    have a little fun writing a detailed, quick FAQ for it, partially for my own
    usage.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: Where did you save as you were playing through this?
    
    A: In an effort to compose this FAQ section by section, I rarely saved.  The
    first time through the CONFERENCE HALL was my first save.  The second came in
    the CHURCH OFFICE after the end of the first disk.  The third time was in the
    PANEL ROOM.  The fourth time was in the LODGINGS.  The fifth and final time was
    in STORAGE just before the final boss.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: So how many times did you beat the game?
    
    A: Only the once.  Though I played through each section piece by piece any
    number of times.  I went through the train itself anywhere from five to seven
    times.  I've lost track of how many times I went through the mansion before
    getting it all right, though I assure you I've fought the centipede more times
    than you or I would really care to comprehend (so take that strategy for good).
    The laboratory I got through two or three times.  Through the first tyrant
    maybe twice, then to Marcus five times and through him twice.  The leech queen
    I also fought twice.  Overall I'd say I beat the game in length about four
    times.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: How long did it take you?
    
    A: Over the course of writing this FAQ, I visited just about every location,
    including ones I wouldn't normally use, and skipped through most if not all of
    the cutscenes.  The route itself was a slight variation on what you'd see here,
    just a little longer.  My final time was 3:28:27, just barely under the
    3:30:00 limit to get an S ranking, proof that you can run through the game
    picking up most, if not all, of the items and still be fast enough to get the
    top rank.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: Why do certain areas have names that don't fit with the rest of the FAQ?
    
    A: Those names are taken directly from the save data from typewriters that
    happened to be in the area.  Sometimes, other names were taken from location
    references in files and other things of the sort.  As I continue to test things
    out and replay, names will be subject to change based off this.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: HEY, it clearly says AMMO in the game!
    
    A: I know, but doing it like I did makes it easier to both distinguish between
    the weapon and the ammo by giving the ammo a distinct name you can look for.
    Handguns always have bullets, shotguns have shells, magnums have rounds, and
    the grenade launcher has grenades.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: Why are there no Crimson Heads in RE0?
    
    A: In the original development phase, it was being made for the N64 and I don't
    think the idea of Crimson Heads had fully materialized yet.  That's just a shot
    in the dark, considering they ended up redoing the entire thing for the
    Gamecube.  The more likely reason, apparently given by one of the higher
    officials for Capcom, was that Billy and Rebecca never spent long enough in any
    one location to give rise to a Crimson Head, also considering that the Crimson
    Heads of RE:Remake fame had been infected by the T-Virus for any length of
    time, while the ones in RE:0 were relatively new.  Personally, while I respect
    the Gamecube's processing ability, I'm not entirely certain that it is fully
    capable right now of having both corpses with timers lying around in addition
    to items to be picked up and dropped whenever.  Just a thought.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: What attacked Billy's truck in the intro?
    
    A: The MPs are rather messed up by the attack, and a lot of people, Rebecca
    included, would argue that the zombie dogs did it.  However, the close-up on
    the bit of goo dripping down the vehicle's side would lead me to believe that
    the player is to assume it was leeches that just happened to be there as well.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: Is the Treatment Plant in RE0 the same as the one in RE3?
    
    A: I've looked into this a bit, and originally, I thought it was the same.  If
    I remember RE3 maps correctly, the Treatment Plant in that DID have a heliport,
    in a manner of speaking, and that heliport was on 1F just like it was in RE0.
    However, you have to take into account locations.  Some say that the treatment
    plant is closer to the middle of Raccoon City in RE3, but, I do think the park
    leaves quite a bit of separation there.  That would contribute to the idea that
    they are the same.  On the other hand, the Treatment Plant of RE0 had access to
    Birkin's laboratory, leaving the Training Facility and RPD connected to the lab
    and to the plant.  That said, in the end of RE2 we have our heros running out
    from a train tunnel into a rather dry, rocky area, whereas in RE0 they end up
    in the middle of Raccoon Forest.  In addition, RE0's plant has a dam of some
    sort, and I think that would have been hard to ignore in RE3.  But all said, I
    have no idea at all.  The logistics created by that insane elevator in Birkin's
    Lab give me nightmares because you have three locations more or less on top of
    each other, and if Jill was running around in a place that was at least
    partially connected to Birkin's Lab then where did the Nemmy come from, or does
    that create even more problems?  Plus, the explosion at the end was able to hit
    both the Training Facility and the Treatment Plant.  It undoubtedly had some
    effect on Birkin's trashed lab, and I wouldn't put it beyond him to rebuild
    both his lab and the Treatment Plant relatively unnoticed.  I don't know, I
    have no sense of direction when it comes to Raccoon City, and I can't point
    which place is where.  To Hell with "logic" and "sense", I want it to be the
    same plant just so I don't have to think of two of those plants around the
    city.  Isn't one enough?
    
    I will say, for now, that all we know is that both plants suffer from the same
    general problems.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: HELP!  I SENT BILLY UP WITH THE HOOKSHOT IN THE LABORATORY AND NOW I THINK
    I'M STUCK!
    
    A: Easy, easy.  The game designers wouldn't be that cruel.  I've given some
    directions to get around this issue in the part of the walkthrough just
    before the characters split in an added section which you can easily access
    by using the find command and searching for the phrase BILLY METHOD.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: Why didn't I get a ranking when I beat the game?
    
    A: Probably because you're playing in easy mode.  You'll still get some things,
    like Leech Hunter and the costumes, but there isn't anything else as far as I
    remember.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: (spotted around GameFAQ's RE0 board) Why didn't Rebecca call for backup
    before going into the Spencer Mansion?
    
    A: There are probably a number of reasons for this.  In the last Enrico
    encounter, he tells her that they found this mansion in the middle of the woods
    and they're going to check it out.  All the cool STARS were go there, two
    squads worth of them can't be wrong, though most of them end up dead.  She had
    no way of knowing that the Spencer Mansion would be crawling with zombies too.
    The information regarding that was kept between Marcus, Wesker, and Birkin.
    It's possible that she could've been chased in.  It probably didn't scream
    "deathtrap" at the time, and with the stuff wandering around in the woods,
    inside would seem safer, what with the rest of the team.  As for why she didn't
    ask for help, near as I can figure, even though STARS operates out of the RPD,
    they aren't really affiliated with them too much.  Separate people and tools,
    and since the only radio communications device we see in RPD is in the STARS
    room, who's to say Richard got the message to anyone but the other STARS team?
    Even then, since STARS was the best of the best, it would probably take a while
    to form a large party to go on a directionless raid in the woods (on foot, most
    likely, how many helicopters can a small midwestern town's police department
    have?), and by then it was all over anyway.  Irons would have probably vetoed
    the idea and Wesker would rather blow up the place.  Not too complex.
    
    Plus, that assumes that they are reasonining and thinking clearly.  We, from
    our perspective of omniscience, can pass this off as mere stupidity.
    
    Furthermore, to close the book entirely on the matter, if you rewrite the end
    of RE0 then you're forced to rewrite RE:Remake entirely.  If you're upset over
    a vague ending, you'd be absolutely rabid over the contradictions created by
    most alternate endings.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: What about Billy?  Where does he go?
    
    A: Riding off into the sunset, accidentally glued to his saddle.  It doesn't
    make a lot of a difference.  There is mention that, yes, he is a criminal, but
    Rebecca claims he died in her report, he was assumed under custody (and I'll
    assume that they didn't communicate his disappearance over the radio, with more
    pressing matters at hand, "ZOMBIES! *scream, gurgle*"), and if even STARS
    wasn't aware that he was being transported, I'd say it was pretty secret and
    chalk one up for the theory that the whole transport was an Umbrella thing.
    UBCS or Marcus or some similar tripe.  Billy seemed to be at least somewhat in
    the know on the matter.  Despite the fact that he's wandering around without
    ammo, I figure he's probably free to go wherever with little trouble.  I'd
    expect he'll come wandering back into another RE game, for plot purposes,
    sometime in the future.
    
    Oh, and he isn't the Nemesis.  Please, no more of that.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: What was that noise at the end?
    
    A: There's some random speculation that Billy kills himself at the end, but why
    bother after surviving all that?  The sound can be interpretted as either a
    gunshot, in which case it would probably just be someone shooting a zombie, or
    the more logical idea is that its just a door slamming, which fits with the RE1
    story for Rebecca because, despite the fact that she just escaped, she's still
    basically trapped.  Another theory is that its thunder, symbolizing the
    impending storm both physically and symbolically, that works too.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: Hey, wait a sec... was Marcus killed in '78 or '88?
    
    A: This is a topic of near endless debate on the gamefaqs.com RE0 board and
    little will be resolved.  The problem was created by a supposed typo in the
    Investigator's Report, some sources say things were closed down twenty years
    ago, some say ten.
    
    A rundown of the points made by each side is mostly:
    
    Pro-'78:
    *The t-virus was made that year
    *No one knows who Marcus is, let alone credit him for creating the t-virus
    *Wesker's Report II, which indicates Birkin mostly lost interest in t-virus
     research by '88, leaving the "I will take over your research" statement making
     little sense otherwise
    
    Pro-'88:
    *Marcus said "ten years ago..."
    *Japanese and UK versions of the game say ten in the Investigator's Report
    *If Marcus was killed in '78, Birkin would be 16 and Wesker would be 18, and
     they sure don't look like it in the cut-scene.
    *Wesker's Report II does not credit Birkin with creation of the t-virus
    
    The major swing point of this is that though Marcus SAYS he was going to submit
    the research at the next board meeting, there's nothing that says he did so.
    Even then, it leaves him mostly fiddling around with his leeches for ten years
    after that event, with no record of what he was doing at that time.
    
    I'm of the Pro-'88 school, I figure that Umbrella let him keep his lab for a
    number of years.  Spencer decides to off Marcus when it becomes apparent that
    some trainees are being experimented on, or because he no longer wants to be
    obligated to someone who is not loyal to him, or just because he's Spencer.
    Spencer revises history again (like he did with the Ashfords) and gives credit
    to Birkin for the t-virus, no one cares because Marcus is a loon and a shut-in.
    Birkin's statement about taking over the research just means that if they find
    anything of interest in Marcus' experiments or files, Birkin will get credit
    for it, since there's no record of Marcus submitting anything else to the board.
    
    Mostly it ends up dragging out into speculation, both arguments have their
    merits and until a more conclusive answer is given, it will still be debated.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: Hey!  Why aren't the items exactly where you say they are in leech hunter?
    
    A: The randomizer will mess with you a lot here.  The placement is relatively
    stable, but the colors aren't, which is why I didn't bother to list them.  In
    short, keep huntin', but if I told you not to go into a room, don't go there.
    Usually, painful things in there.  Of course, if the fire key is misplaced...
    seriously, restart.
    
    ========================
    =  15: FUTURE UPDATES  =
    ========================
    
    I'm planning on updating this as soon as I fully recover from my experiences
    writing it.
    
    Some things I may add/fix in the future are...
    
    *ASCII art (oh, the pain... help)
    *Changes in location names based around the principle of eliminating confusion
    and keeping up with what the game says it is
    *Damage chart for the enemies
    
    ======================
    =  16: CONTACT INFO  =
    ======================
    
    
    Logically, there are going to be a few guidelines for contacting me.
    
    First and foremost, I can only hope you've done a search function on the FAQ or
    read through the entire thing for the answer to your question BEFORE you decide
    to e-mail.  I may just not answer the question and redirect you where to find
    the answer otherwise.  If your question is good, it may make it in here.
    
    Second of all, I prefer my e-mails in English.  I can understand a little bit
    of Japanese, but I really prefer my mail in English.  Common speaking English,
    no 1337, no ebonics, if I cannot understand you or am too frustrated with your
    means of phrasing, I don't need to respond.  Simple as that.
    
    Third, I'm not interested in fan fiction.  Let's get that clear right now.
    I have fun with this, I do NOT live vicariously through it.  No photos, no
    "inside" information, no BS.  There is no guarentee (actually, theres closer
    to a guarentee I won't) that I will take anything of that nature seriously.
    
    Fourth, I'm sorry if I'm not hardcore enough for your gaming tastes.  I don't
    play through these games with only the knife and I might do so only if I were
    horribly bored.  I can't pull off some neverending combo in a fighting game
    that would send you to your doom.  The most I've ever done is get a ninja
    before the end of the first act of FF:Tactics.  That's good enough for me.
    
    You don't like it, you write a better FAQ.  Same reason as the rest of us.
    
    Fifth, and most importantly, by e-mailing me any sort of conspiracy theory
    or otherwise wacked-out analysis of the events in the game, you're pretty much
    giving me the right to make mention of it and possibly debase the idea in here
    in whatever manner I deem to be appropriate at the time (anonymously, of
    course.  Even if it is mostly a flame, it will not be referred to by name).
    Legitimate questions will be answered, interesting theories will be added, but
    everything else has a very slim chance to get in.  No guarentees, approval
    always pending.
    
    Don't harass me either.  Multiple e-mails won't get your mail read any faster,
    but it may get you blocked.  Same theory applies to flaming.  Like all things
    on the internet, maybe one of these days we'll connect, but you're running
    on your time and I'm running on my time.  Just the way it is.
    
    That said, my e-mail is fearfaq(at)hotmail.com (replace the at with an @, I do
    this to mess with the spambots.  Try to be good and give me some idea of what
    you're talking about in the e-mail title.
    
    
    =====================
    =  17: FINAL NOTES  =
    =====================
    
    As all good FAQ / Walkthroughs come to an end, so must come the shout outs.
    
    Props to:
    
    -- Capcom, for catering to my apocolyptic / B-horror movie needs.
       The name Resident Evil and characters in it are their trademark.  The
       introduction is primarily taken from the game itself.
    
    -- Gamesages, because I snatched the copy of the ending bonuses from them.
       It would be an even bigger pain to figure that out on my own.
    
    -- CJayC, for being an all around good chap and putting up the gamefaqs
       site you are likely using.  Along with the disclaimer in the beginning.
       Posting this as well, cheers.
    
    -- TWilde, for writing the plot analysis I've been a long-time reader of.
       Your attention to detail is incredible, your wit is excellent.
    
    -- Stephen Ng, and the people over at the FAQs section of IGN.  Like CJayC
       and the GameFAQs crew, they also work exceptionally hard to bring you
       the best.
    
    -- Leo Chan, and all the others over at Neoseeker, for all the reasons
       given for the other FAQ sites and more.
    
    -- The people who run RE sites, because sometimes I need to refresh my
       memory, or at least access information on upcoming games and release
       dates.  They also sometimes have information on special features like
       Wesker's Report and for cheapskates like me who don't like to pre-order,
       thanks a lot.
    
    -- People who write FAQs, thanks for keeping me from being the designated
       tech support for my friends.  And vice versa.
    
    -- Soul Coughing, they made fine music.
    
    No props to:
    
    -- Those who would infringe on the copy rights.  I don't make money off
       of any of this, but seriously, that shit ain't cool yo, and it doens't
       take that much to get permission.
