    II. Introduction
    ----------------------
    
    I felt that I wanted to make a FAQ to this game as it gave me one of the
    most enjoyable gaming experiences I encountered not to mention the lack
    of guides/FAQ in this game.
    
    This mini-FAQ features the Bits(which seem to be inspired by Phantasy
    Star Online's MAGs) , their usefulness, features and the likes.
    
    If theres something you want to add,correct,suggest comment etc. in this 
    FAQ, drop me in an e-mail... otherwise.... Enjoy!

    III. Bit Forms
    ----------------------
    
    Bits is a must for every Hunter. They assist their owners in their hunt for
    Lost Data with their special abilities. Sei Kisagi(Our Hero) gains the 
    Rabbit Bit form in the start of the game but with using Bit Food collected
    throughout the game changing Bit Forms is possible.
    
    To feed your Bit head to the Control Panel (Start Button) , Status then
    Bit. There are 2 options:
    
     --------
    | Feed |
     --------
    
    Feeds your Bit with Bit Food. Each food increases/decreases a Bit's status
    attributes. They are collected all throughout the servers, these Bit Food are:
    
    Brain Food - Raises Bit's Intelligence.
    
    Brain Diet - Lowers Bit's Intelligence.
    
    Brave Food - Raises Bit's Courage.
    
    Brave Diet - Lowers Bit's Courage.
    
    Heart Food - Raises Bit's Kindness.
    
    Heart Diet - Lowers Bit's Kindness.
     
     ------------
    | Gallery |
      ----------
    
    This is where you keep track of what Bit Forms you obtained and their noted 
    featires. At the beginning you only have Bit Form Rabbit in the Gallery, 
    to change to other Bit Forms you have to increase/decrease Bit's status
    attributes to change the Bit you want. Once the requirements are met the Bit
    will automatically transform into that Form. 
    
    Bit Forms(13 Total) are arranged from left to right:
    
    Rabbit = Fish = Triceratops = Elephant = Cat
    Dolphin = Dog = Jellyfish = Bear = Lion
    Frog = Whale = Pteranodon 
    
    --------------
    
    < Rabbit >
    - Bit will search for important items.
    INT: 10~19
    COUR: 10~19
    KIND: 10~19
    
    Comments: 
    This is the first Bit Form you will get in the game. This Bit Form will give 
    out clues on where to find the important items such as Repair Programs and
    possibly Virtua Souls( Can anyone confirm this? ). This is Form is good if 
    your stuck in the server otherwise there are other better Bit Forms.

    <Fish> "Guzzle!" 
    - Bit will attack enemies by biting them.
    INT: 10~19
    COUR: 30~39
    KIND: 20~29
    
    Comments:
    I'm not really fond of attack Bit Forms other than distracting the enemy they
    dont deal as much damage as Virtua Soul attacks. This Bit Form hits the enemy
    3 times giving you time to finish off the other enemies.
    
    ---
    
    <Triceratops> "Tricera!" 
    - Bit will attack enemies by charging them.
    INT: 30~39
    COUR: 50
    KIND: 30~39
    
    Comments: 
    Other than its high status requirement its charge attack hits multiple enemies
    and damage is higher than other attack Bit Forms. 
    
    ---
    
    <Elephant> "Sheild!" " Shield Broken! " 
    - Bit will defend against enemy attacks. 
    INT: 10~19
    COUR: 30~39
    KIND: 40~49
    
    Comments:
    Bit will cover Sei with a powerful bubble type shield which only lasts for
    one hit. Dont rely on this too much as it takes forever for the Bit to set up
    the shield again.
    
    ---
    
    <Cat> "Cat Slash!" 
    - Bit will look for dangerous spots.
    INT: 20~29
    COUR: 10~19
    KIND: 10~19
    
    Comments:
    Similar to Rabbit Bit Form but it looks for traps and reports it to Sei.
    Nothing really special except to detect trap doors and attack power is weak.
    
    ---
    
    <Dolphin> " Dolphin Power! "
    - Bit will gradually replenish your HP.
    INT: 30~39
    COUR: 20~29
    KIND: 40~49
    
    Comments:
    While its useful for regenerating HP after a battle it wont keep up when Sei
    fights a group as its HP recovery rate is quite small. Sometimes the Bit will
    power up and restore both HP & SP. Overall a decent Bit Form but the Whale 
    Bit Form is much ,much better.

    <Dog>
    - Bit will collect Data Chips for you.
    INT: 30~39
    COUR: 30~39
    KIND: 30~39
    
    Comments:
    Useless. Why bother letting the Bit collect Data Chips for you while you can
    do it yourself?
    
    ---
    
    <Jellyfish> " RATTLE! ZOT! "
    - Bit will put enemies to sleep and attack.
    INT: 10~19
    COUR: 40~49
    KIND: 10~19
    
    Comment:
    I dont recall it putting enemies to sleep otherwise its just another attack
    type Bit Form.
    
    ---
    
    <Bear> "Bear Knuckle! AROOO--!! "
    - Bit will give you info on enemies.
    INT: 30~39
    COUR: 20~29
    KIND: 20~29
    
    Comments:
    I never recalled the Bear giving me info on the enemies, all it did is
    attacking the enemy with "Bear Knuckle!". IMO its a useless Bit Form...
    
    ---
    
    <Lion>
    - Bit will attack enemies that are behind you.
    INT: 20~29
    COUR: 40~49
    KIND: 20~29
    
    Comments:
    Handy when fighting a large group. One of the better attack Bit Forms.
    
    ---
    
    <Frog> " With Frog Power , falling damage is neglected. "
    - Bit will help you out if you fall.
    INT: 20~29
    COUR: 10~19
    KIND: 20~29
    
    Comments:
    Useless. Falling damage is not much of a nuisance and there are better Bits
    with more practical use.
    
    ---
    <Whale> " Recovery Items Located! "
    - Bit will heal you with items.
    INT: 20~29
    COUR: 10~19
    KIND: 40~49
    
    Comments:
    IMO The BEST Bit Form in the game! It can store HP & SP refill items in the 
    stage and automatically uses it when your HP/SP is below 50%. Very useful as 
    chances of survival at Boss battles and gang battles.
    
    ---
    
    <Pteranodon> " Triple Shot! " 
    - Bit will fire projectiles at enemies.
    INT: 40~49
    COUR: 40~49
    KIND: 20~29
    
    Comments:
    Its Triple Shot hardly gives decent damage to enemies and bosses, not 
    recommended IMO.

    IV. FAQ
    ----------------------
    
    ---------------------------------------
    1. Q. Which is the best Bit Form?
    ---------------------------------------
       A. To me IMO is the Whale Form as storing HP/SP Restore items has been very
          useful. But I'm sure others prefer other Bits to match their playing
          style.
    
    ---------------------------------------
    2. Q. Where to get Bit Food?
    ---------------------------------------
       A. All stages except the Final Server. You can find pretty much a variety 
          of Bit Food in each stage.
    
    ---------------------------------------
    3. Q. What does Intelligence,Courage and Kindness do?
    ---------------------------------------
       A. Other than giving you reference on changing to that Bit Form I have no
          idea.
