#################################

I've gotten a lot of e-mails about this. So I must note that you cannot access
the debug menu without an Action Replay. If you e-mail me about this you will
be ignored. I suggest you read over these few lines carefully before 
e-mailing me.

The obligatory section for those miscellaneous bits.

What is the debug menu?

The debug menu is a special menu that the programmers used to test the game
and debug it (hence, the name "Debug menu"). Fortunately for us, they left this
in. This allows us to do everything they did when making the game, including a
great deal of options that are not normally available.

How can I access this debug menu?

In order to access the debug menu, just proceed through the regular menu and
you will end up at it(E.g. go to 1-P mode, then regular match, then click on
classic and the debug menu will come up). The debug menu is a small purple
screen in the top left corner with white text.

These are the Action Replay codes necessary to access the menu.

How do I know which version of the game I have?

On the bottom of the disc there is some writing in a circle. Look for the part
that says DOL-GALE-0-0x. The last number will be either 0, 1, or 2. If it is
0, you have version 1.0. If it is 1, you have version 1.1. If it is 2, you
have version 1.2.

How can I control Master Hand and Crazy Hand?

In order to control Master Hand, there must be a controller in port 3.
In order to control Crazy Hand, there must be a controller in port 4.

A move list for the hands can be found in Appendix F

                memory card. The only thing you should use here
                is the 'Save' option, which will save all the changes
                you made while in the Debug Menu. Other than
                that, I recommend you stay away from this menu.
