The controls for this game are very simple, and are as follows:

A - Confirms choices/commands.
B - Cancels choices/commands.
L/R - Move cursor between units on the battle grid.
Start - View the battle grid map.
Select - Not Used.

                                   (C) STORY
###############################################################################

This is taken from the intro to the game:

"Most of the Earth's natural resources had finally been exhausted, and the tiny
planet was unable to support the soaring population of humans.  In 2045 mankind
began to look beyond Earth for solutions and built the first Earth-space track
orbital elevator.  The "Space Age" had officially begun, and countries all over
the world dove into countless research projects and space development plans.
It was then that the human race created and discovered several new tools that
would change life forever; the LEV, a pilot-controlled interspace robot; the
resource Metatron, excavated from the Jupiter moon, Callisto; and the Urenbeck
Catapult, a device which, by manipulating space, enabled hyper speed-travel.
The discovery and invention of these so-called "tools" expedited the progress
of the space development project resulting in an exodus into space; in the span
of a single century, more than 20 million people took up residences in colonies
on the moon, Mars, and as far as Jupiter territory.  The transition from Earth
to space seemed to be going smoothly - however, new conflicts were just
beginning to materialize.  Human beings left on Earth began to refer to these
colonists as "Enders", a derogatory term for those "living at the end of
civilization", expressing their prejudiced attitudes toward non-Earth
inhabitants.  In response, these immigrants, who were subject to discrimination
on top of living in harsh environments, bonded together in their bitterness
against Earth... and tensions between the two groups would only be magnified as
time passed.  In 2158, anger on the immigrant side culminated in the founding
of BAHRAM, an anti-Earth military unit based in Vacilia County, Mars - and its
subsequent clandestine invention of the Metatron "Orbital Frame", an entirely
new type of LEV-like machine.  From there, it was one tragedy after another.
The Deimos Incident.  Anterior Intervention.  The threat of orbital elevator
destruction.  Since the advent of BAHRAM and the Orbital Frame, the already
precarious equilibrium keeping the peace between Earth and space was rapidly
falling apart.  And in 2173, amidst the political turmoil, another ship filled
with immigrants left Earth for the Zone Of The Enders..."


###############################################################################
                                (D) TIPS/TRICKS
###############################################################################

1. First of all there are 15 slots to save your game, so you can easily save
   somewhere and try something, then if it doesn't work reload an earlier
   save.

2. The game also lets you save almost ANY TIME during a mission, so once again
   you can save before attacking/defending and reload your save if you don't
   get desired results.

3. Finally in missions with more than one enemy LEV, you can retreat(restart)
   the mission after destroying a LEV and you will keep any experience or
   levels gained.

4. Combat in the game is rather simple, you just need to get the enemy within
   the largest target that you have before pressing A when attacking.  As for
   defense you just need to avoid the enemy's targets from touching your
   target.  99%  of the time moving in a circular motion around the battle
   area will accomplish this, for this reason I won't go into detail for each
   individual battle unless there are special/unusual tactics that you need to
   use.

5. ALWAYS try to make it (using Cage) to a local server in any mission that
   has one, this will get you much more powerful attacks for your orbital
   frames.

6. How and when you upgrade is totally up to you, in my opinion you get too
   small an upgrade for too much money so it doesn't make much difference in
   the long run.  The same is true for the items that you get between most
   scenes, they're helpful but not terribly.  Just equip them whenever you
   wish for a small edge in a mission.

[This FAQ assumes that you have IAS turned on, and it is turned on by default.
Also there is a MASSIVE amount of text in this game, and I don't plan on
reproducing it all here.  You can read it all if you want at your own leisure
as you play.  I will just give brief plot updates between missions, the real
heart of the game.]


You play as a boy named Cage on a ship (Bonaparte), and at the beginning of
the game you get wrongly accused of stealing a man's wallet.  After the
confusion settles you end up with a "Handy PC", it's filled with information
that you can check at your own leisure to learn more about the game.

You then run off and get ready for landing.  You learn that your ship is
carrying a mystery cargo, then it gets attacked by something that doesn't
show up on the radar.

You then chase a girl (Myona) into the cargo area and get locked in there due
to the attack, after a bit of exploring you see the LEV and enter it.

=================================
SCENE01: On the Battle God's Palm
=================================

You use the LEV to escape the ship just before it explodes behind you, then you
get informed that there are some survivors of the explosion.  However before
you can do anything an unidentified object shows up and you must fight it.


Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Destroy the Black Frame.
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Cage's frame destroyed.

Now you finally get to the action, battle takes place on a grid and you can
view a condensed (map) version of it by pressing start.  Now would be a good
time to save your game so move the cursor into empty space and press A, then
select Save from the menu.

If you press A on yourself then you will be given the option of moving,
attacking or checking your status.  We will be moving for now, so select move
and move to any of the four squares directly touching the enemy unit.  Now
select attack from your menu, the only one that you can use right now is the
Rusty Lancer so use it.  Pick the square that the enemy unit is on and press A
to start this round of the battle.

You now have eight seconds to try and get your crosshair over the enemy unit
and press A.  This results in a successful attack, but if you manage to get it
on the red heart of the unit when attacking you will do a critical hit.

After that your round is over so you can do whatever you want before picking
Phase End from the same menu that you saved your game from.

Now it is the enemy's turn to attack you, so you must do your best to avoid the
attack.  This is done by flying away from the unit and trying to avoid its red
crosshairs from touching your blue one.  If you can manage to do this until the
time runs out you will not get hit.

Repeat this pattern until you beat the enemy and it will escape, then you will
get pulled to Mars by it's gravitational field.

You now get to save your game and adjusting other options if needed before
starting the next stage, I recommend just saving.

================================SCENE01 CLEARED================================


Myona has amnesia, so you try your best to comfort her.  All of a sudden three
LEVs show up and arrest you for destroying the Bonaparte.

You hear something about Plan 261 being executed, but not much else.

A news program informs you that no one (including you apparently) survived the
Bonaparte explosion, then you are taken to a cell.

Ares then gets you out of your cell thanks to the help of another person
(Deckson).

=========================
SCENE02: Perpetual Motion
=========================

You talk with Ares and Deckson a little before two LEVs show up and a battle
begins.


Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Obliterate enemy.
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Cage's frame destroyed.

Save your game and skip your first turn to get the enemies to move closer, then
destroy the pair of enemies and avoid their attacks, you can both use guns now
so beware of that.

Frazer shows up and threatens everyone with capital punishment, then Deckson's
friends show up to help you escape.


Battle 02 Victory Conditions: Direct Blade to destination / Obliterate enemy.
Battle 02 Failure Conditions: Blade destroyed / Cage's frame destroyed.

There are four enemy units on your right and four other units on your left, 
Semyl and Razma are also on your left and you can control them to help destroy
the enemy units.  Save your game before starting the battle just in case.

Use Razma to attack an enemy unit with the long rifle and Semyl to attack
another with missiles, then end your turn.  Avoid the enemy attacks and use
Cage to attack a unit on your right, then drive somewhere away from enemy units
with Phil.  Basically just attack with everyone but Phil and keep her at a safe
distance from enemies.  It's not a hard battle really, and I would recommend
killing all enemies for the experience before moving Phil to the target square.

After the battle Nadia of the UNSF elite army force Acemos scolds Frazer, and
you receive a Repair Kit.

Now you can use the garage option to pay for upgrades to your allies' weapons
and other stats.  I recommend just saving your game and saving upgrades for
later.

================================SCENE02 CLEARED================================


You end up in the BIS (Born In Space) hideout and learn that the UNSF is
raiding the hospital.  They are planning to steal a drug and sell it for a
higher price, so you go to the hospital.

========================
SCENE03: A Hopeless Hope
========================

Yukito then destroys some UNSF LEVs that were guarding a vehicle.  You then get
the drug from the vehicle and must deliver it to the hospital.


Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Approach hospital with Edge / Obliterate enemy.
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Edge destroyed / Cage's frame destroyed.

You have five units compared to the enemy's four so the battle should be really
easy, but save your game anyway.  The enemy units are located in the top left
corner of the map with the hospital.  Basically move your units towards the
hospital until the enemy units get close enough to attack, then destroy them
all.  Ned will show up and threaten you, then Razma will appear and attack him.


Battle 02 Victory Conditions: Destroy Ned LEV.
Battle 02 Failure Conditions: Edge destroyed / Cage's frame destroyed.

Save your game and attack Ned with Razma, then move your other units closer to
him to finish the job.

Ned recognizes Pharsti and mentions plan 261 before escaping.  Myona 
remembers a little bit about her past before fainting, and you get a Supply
pack.

Save your game before starting the next stage.

================================SCENE03 CLEARED================================


Deckson informs you that Myona's parents are dead, and that Myona was not
listed on the passenger roster for the Bonaparte.  Deckson then offers you to
join BIS as members and you accept.  The news then informs you that the UNSF
blew up the hospital and put the blame on you.  You'll then go pay a visit to
Robin, a friend of BIS and its sponsor.

===========================
SCENE04: Double-Edged Sword
===========================

You see Ned again attacking random buildings this time, Edge suspects a leak
somewhere in BIS.


Save your game and move to any location, all your friends then show up to
help.

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Go to facility entrance with Edge
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Edge destroyed / Cage's frame destroyed.

Save your game before moving Edge to the target square in the top right and
move everyone else closer to the enemy units so you can attack them.  Defeat
the units for the experience as you move Edge to the target square.

You hear mention of someone named Mebius safely escaping with the rest of
Robin's staff.  Ned then threatens Robin's life, then Mebius appears and
attacks Ned in the now operational Orcrist.  Ned then escapes and calls
further reinforcements, with Robin safe everyone decides it's time to stop Ned.


Battle 02 Victory Conditions: Destroy Ned LEV.
Battle 02 Failure Conditions: Edge destroyed / Cage's frame destroyed.

Save before you move your units towards the enemy units and beat them one by
one for the extra experience, try to save Ned for last.  The unmanned units are
smaller and faster than the enemies that you have been fighting up to this
point so be prepared to deal with that.  Otherwise beat Ned afterwards and
Nadia will show up briefly to rescue him and escape.

Back at the BIS hideout you talk more about the possibility of a traitor being
among you.  Then you see a brief clue of Bolozof using Nadia as a pawn.

You receive a Booster, you should then save your game before starting the
next mission.

================================SCENE04 CLEARED================================


You learn that customs taxes will be increased over 3 years solely in the
region that you (BIS) operate.  Robin's secretary Twede then informs you that a
BIS-owned LEV (piloted by Den) is wrecking havoc near Semyl's orphanage and you
need to put a stop to it.

===================================
SCENE05: A Voice from Far, Far Away
===================================

When you arrive on the scene it turns out that Den of the BIS is infact Ned,
once again soiling your reputation.  Ned is planning to put the orphans on LEVs
that are rigged with explosives, worse still they are on auto-pilot so they
will attack you.

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: ???
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Attack enemy LEVs / Cage's frame destroyed.

Save your game and skip the first three turns or so, Ned tells you that he
also put explosives in the orphanage that will go off if you attack him.
Warren (who is actually Razma's brother) then appears and tells you that he
will disable the bombs so that you can safely attack the LEVs.  To put it more
simply you can only attack a LEV without the bomb exploding if Warren is
touching the LEV at the time.  So wait until you've moved Warren beside a LEV
before attacking that LEV with someone else.  Once you've saved the children
Ned will call some reinforcements, so make short work of them before going
after Ned.


Battle 02 Victory Conditions: Destroy Ned LEV.
Battle 02 Failure Conditions: Cage's frame destroyed.

After the battle Ned kills one of his own soldiers and threaten to do the same
to the children that you rescued already.  Your LEV then changes to an orbital
frame and you obliterate Ned.

You receive a Repair kit, you should then save your game before starting the
next mission.

================================SCENE05 CLEARED================================


You witness a brief argument between Bolozof and Zephyrs over Nadia, then Twede
informs you that Zephyrs is behind all the recent violence.  Cage then talks
with Myona for a while, and she helps him to overcome his doubts.

===========================
SCENE06: One Wing's Promise
===========================

Outside the UNSF tries to arrest you, but your friends show up.

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Obliterate enemy.
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Cage's frame destroyed.

Save your game and fight off the five enemy units like normal to end this
battle.

Razma then contacts you and helps Cage get some confidence back before
cutting tramsmission.  You then speed to the orphanage to see what went wrong.
It turns out Bolozof was behind the attack, but Razma saved the kids in time.


Battle 02 Victory Conditions: Obliterate enemy.
Battle 02 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament.

Save your game and beat the four basic frames below you before going after
Nadia and Bolozof.  Move Razma up to your other units and skip two turns to get
the enemy units to come to you.  Beat them like normal, then start attacking
Nadia as she should be close by now.  Finally attack Bolozof until he retreats
to end the battle.  You discover that Pharsti's name for the new form is
Testament.

You receive a Booster, you should then save your game before starting the next
mission.

================================SCENE06 CLEARED================================


Robin performs a number of tests on the Testament, and determines that it is
still not at its full potential.  It turns out that Robin may not be on your
side as you see some discourse between Twede and her.  A recent demonstration
against the taxes mentioned in scene 05 turned ugly, so you must be at the next
protest to ensure that if something happens you're there to stop it.

========================
SCENE07: Opposing Tracks
========================

Nadia and Bolozof are among the locals and they fire a few shots at the
peacekeepers to cause confusion.  The peacekeeping LEVs are destroyed soon
after and Bolozof orders the same fate for the "rioters".

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Obliterate enemy.
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament.

Save your game and destroy all the enemy LEVs, by the second turn Pharsti will
point out a local server on your right and suggest that Cage move to it to gain
new weapons or abilities.  I recommend doing that but try your best to protect
the protesters, it's quite hard to get any of them to survive as they can't
avoid attacks.  After they have escaped/died Bolozof and Nadia show up with
more units and attack you.


Battle 02 Victory Conditions: Lower Bolozof's HP to at least 30%.
Battle 02 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament.

Save your game and destroy all units other than Bolozof and Nadia for the extra
experience.  Then attack Nadia followed by Bolozof, once again when Bolozof's
health is at 30% or lower the battle will end.

Back at the BIS hideout it is confirmed that Nadia was the one that fired
first while posing as a protester.

You receive a Repair Kit, you should then save your game before starting the
next mission.

================================SCENE07 CLEARED================================


Razma shows you pictures of Zephyrs' secret factory where OFs are produced.
Razma managed to get a tracer on Nadia when he met her in the previous scene.
The plan is to sneak into the factory to get some dirt on Zephyrs.

==================================
SCENE08: Darkness Dyed by Darkness
==================================

Twede disables the security system outside the factory and you are left to find
the correct route (1 of 5) to the inside.  If you get within three squares of
an enemy unit then you will fail the mission unless you can beat them quickly.

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Discover route.
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Be found by enemy.

On the plus side the enemies don't move at all, but you'll have to make sure
you're at least three squares away before moving each turn so save your game
before trying anything.  The correct route is the right-most one, but in order
to reach it you'll first have to go to the top left corner of the grid.  From
here you can go to the top right corner, and then go down to the target squares
below.  Phil and Ares will then enter the factory and the scene will end
shortly after.

You receive a Supply pack, you should then save your game before starting the
next mission.

================================SCENE08 CLEARED================================


Bolozof discovers Nadia's tracer and sets off the alarm.

==================
SCENE09: Sincerity
==================

The guards then show up and spot you soon after.

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: ???
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament.

Save before heading up and start to beat the enemy units, once your third turn
occurs Ares should show up with the data.  Unfortunately Nadia also shows up
with more enemy units and she's out for blood.


Battle 02 Victory Conditions: Bring Blade to bottom of the screen.
Battle 02 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament, destroy Blade.

Save before moving Blade left and down towards your other units as you use
them to beat the enemy units.  Around your fifth turn you learn that
everyone will die within 10 minutes if you're not quick.


Battle 03 Victory Conditions: Bring Blade to bottom of the screen.
Battle 03 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament or Blade / 16th turn executed.

Save and continue moving Blade down to the bottom of the screen, but also move
your other units left so that you can fight the units that are chasing Blade.
You should get Blade to the bottom well in advance of the 16th turn deadline,
so I recommend moving to the square just above the bottom of the screen.  You
can then attack the other units for the experience and if you can't beat them
all before the deadline then just move down one more square to end the battle.

Nadia lives through the explosion thanks to your help, you then receive a
Booster, so save your game before starting the next mission.

================================SCENE09 CLEARED================================


The files that you got in the previous scene get scanned and some of them are
locked with a password.  Once again your group gets blamed for recent events,
this time it's the factory that exploded in the previous scene.  Bolozof then
captures Mebius, Semyl, Myona and Nadia to lure you to him.

==============================================
SCENE10: A Pure Heart... And the Price It Pays
==============================================

It turns out that Nadia has been replaced by a woman named Amante as well.
Myona recognizes Zephyrs from somewhere, but it is unclear at the moment.
Everyone else then shows up to rescue the hostages and the battle begins.

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Save all hostages.
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament / Destroy unit with freed
                              hostages

There are three squares with hostages on them and they aren't marked on the map
instead you have too look for the little red blue and yellow people on them.
They're not hard to spot, you'll find them among the enemy units near the top.
Save your game and move Testament onto their squares to rescue them, just
fight the enemy units with everyone else.

Once you rescue everyone Frazer tries to rescue Nadia from you, Nadia then
gives you the password (ARIEL) for the coded files.  Bolozof then shows up
with more enemy units to attack you.


Battle 02 Victory Conditions: Obliterate enemy.
Battle 02 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament / Destroy unit with freed
                              hostages

Save and start moving Testament down to the area where you started the battle,
then go right for a local server.  Use everyone else to beat the enemy units
before going after Amante & Bolozof.  Once you drain most of Bolozof's health
the battle will end.

Save your game when you receive a Supply pack before starting the next
mission.

================================SCENE10 CLEARED================================


The data has been deciphered thanks to the password that you got in the
previous scene.  It's now confirmed that Zephyrs created the Testament, but a
little more proof of his involvement is needed.

====================
SCENE11: Double Deal
====================

The plan is to access Zephyrs' server at the military facility, but Amante
shows up with enemy units to stop you.

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Obliterate enemy / 10 turns executed.
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Edge destroyed.

Save your game and head right to destroy the enemy units.  After all your
efforts the password will get changed anyway.

You receive a Booster, you should then save your game before starting the next
mission.  Make sure you save your game to seperate slots here so you can come
back to this save later, this way you can watch both endings to the game.

================================SCENE11 CLEARED================================


Ares Cage and Myona sneak into the facility, Myona is the only one small enough
to proceed further so she goes alone.  An alarm sounds shortly after for some
reason and Cage goes to investigate.

==============================
SCENE12: Between Good and Evil
==============================

Three women in unregistered LEVs show up, they're all part of a group known as
the Mars Angels.  A number of unmanned units then appear and you must defeat
them with or without the Mars Angels' help.

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Obliterate enemy.
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament.

There are 14 enemy units in total and the number that you kill determines which
ending of the game you get, see the Endings section of the FAQ for more
information on this.  Save your game and use the local server on your left
before you beat the enemy units.  Mebius and Warren will show up to make this
battle even easier.

After the battle Palme gives you the data log for the Bonaparte, Zephyrs then
finds Myona.  Shortly afterwards she gets rescued and the scene ends.

You receive a Repair kit, you should then save your game before starting the
next mission.

================================SCENE12 CLEARED================================


Mebius and Deckson leave to inform the press of Zephyrs' involvement, shortly
after there is no response from their LEVs.

=================
SCENE13: The Gift
=================

It turns out that Bolozof captured Deckson and Mebius got captured while
helping him.

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Destroy BizacS(Bolozof's frame).
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament.

You must destroy Bolozof to win the battle but you may as well beat all the
other units first for the experience.  Also make sure you use the local server
in the bottom left corner of the map at some point.

After the battle Myona begins to broadcast a message at the local news station.
Mebius is also at the top of a nearby building and it is unclear what mental
state she is in.

As usual you should save your game before starting the next mission.

================================SCENE13 CLEARED================================


Much to Zephyrs' disappointment Myona's broadcast is displayed to his superior
(Jaeger), she explains everything that Zephyrs has been involved in.

=============================
SCENE14: The Card Turned Down
=============================

Mebius blames herself for everything, but she soon regains her senses and comes
down from the top of the building.  Bolozof tries to restrict your LEV's/OF's
from moving but Twede helps you to regain control.

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Obliterate enemy.
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament.

The battle is a simple one, just defeat all of the enemy units after saving
your game.

Bolozof shows up to fight you after the battle, he also gets betrayed by
Amante.


Battle 02 Victory Conditions: Destroy BizacS(Bolozof's frame).
Battle 02 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament.

Save your game and destroy Bolozof to end this short battle.

Myona continues to expose Zephyrs' practices, and before he can be arrested he
kills his superiors.  Shortly after this, Zephyrs shows up and tries to reach
the TV station.


Battle 03 Victory Conditions: Destroy HarutMarut.
Battle 03 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament / Allow HarutMarut to approach
                              TV station.

Be sure to save your game, then start moving your units northeast to reach the
enemy units.  Fight the enemy units first for the extra experience as Zephyrs
moves really slowly.  Once you fight zephyr's you'll find he's pretty easy to
beat as he's a huge target and has three points where you can get critical
attacks.  Once you beat him he reappears with double the HP, once you beat him
again the battle really ends.

Zephyrs then confuses Cage with someone known as Vale before trying to
self-destruct, Ares destroys him just in time.  All of a sudden someone called
Iblis attacks Ares and leaves.

You receive a Repair kit, you should then save your game before starting the
next mission.

================================SCENE14 CLEARED================================


Myona comforts Cage and you learn that riots are taking place everywhere and
you must stop them.

========================================================
SCENE15: The Darkness That Came From Light (aka: Cracks)
========================================================

Before the battle starts you see some UNSF units and armed civilians fighting
each other.

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Destroy UNSF & armed civilian LEVs.
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament.

Save your game and destroy all enemy units, don't forget to use the local
server on your left at some point though.

After the battle Myona runs into some mysterious trouble with Pharsti.

You receive a Booster, you should then save your game before starting the next
mission.

================================SCENE15 CLEARED================================


Myona and Testament are gone, also armed civilians are attacking the BIS
hideout.

==============================================
SCENE16: Uncertain Future (aka: Paradise Lost)
==============================================

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Destroy enemy leader's frame.
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Edge destroyed.

The enemy units are using stealth, but if you get close enough you're able to
see them.  You just need to beat their leader to end the battle, he is on your
left.  I recommend using your grounded units to attack the pair of enemy units
below you and send your OFs left to attack the leader.  Stop to attack any
units that you find along the way for the experience, then beat the leader.
Twede even helps out if you defeat enough of the basic units, then the rest
of the units deactivate their stealth.

After the battle Cage decides to leave BIS.

You receive a Repair kit, you should then save your game before starting the
next mission.

================================SCENE16 CLEARED================================


Raiah starts to help you escape, but Cage realizes he's not alone after all and
decides against it.

===================================
SCENE17: Rebirth (aka: A Bow Drawn)
===================================

Cage returns to the BIS hideout to find it leveled by rioters.  The rioters
then try to capture cage but BIS rescues him and Cage joins them once again.
Ned appears and brings enemy units to destroy you, Cage calls for Pharsti and
she returns to him to help.

Battle 01 Victory Conditions: Obliterate enemy.
Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament.

before attacking Ned for the extra experience.

get rid of him.  It turns out that the BIS Hideout was actually a mobile ship
buried underground so you still have a hideout.

do close range attacks on the kids' frames.  Only attack them when you are
touching them, this way you can disable their frames without destroying them.

Zephyrs.

Battle 01 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament / Destroy Nerokerubina.

Save your game before moving your units into the same row and skipping turns
to let the enemy come to you.  You can then beat all the basic units and save
Myona for last.  Once you approach her this battle will end and she will hide
among two clones of herself.


Battle 02 Victory Conditions: Approach Myona's frame with Testament.
Battle 02 Failure Conditions: Destroy Testament / Destroy Nerokerubina.

This part of the battle is easy as it has no fighting, just move Cage up
towards the three Myonas and move close to them one at a time until you find
the real Myona.  In my game the true Myona was on the right, but it may be
random.

After a lot of talk Myona comes to her senses and finally join BIS once
again.

Be sure to save your game before starting the final mission.

escape.

Now just pick next stage to watch the ending.

================================SCENE24 CLEARED================================


Everyone goes to Zephyrs secret lab to try and finally put a stop to Ares.

================

going after Jimmer.

In scene 12 of the game you get to decide which ending you ultimately get when
you beat the game.

If you beat more units than the Mars Angels, then you will get the good ending
which takes place after scene 25.

If you beat less units than the Mars Angels, then you will get the bad ending
which takes place after scene 24.

                                (G) EXPERIMENTAL
###############################################################################

For a little while now I've had a paypal link in all my FAQs at the very bottom
here.  Mainly as a small experiment since a few other FAQ authors have also had
the same idea.

I had a few people email me before I put this link in because they wanted to
send money, so it's here for those people.


For the record I've received about $87 (which works out to a bit more in
Canadian lol) last I checked, so I've been getting cases of pop and making some
excellent progress on a few FAQs.

If you don't want to send money or can't then send me an email, it's nice to
hear what people thought about my work and there's always room for improvement.

My email address is fecalord (AT) gmail (DOT) com, and the paypal address is
listed below.


For those that want to contribute, you can use paypal at the following address:

Many thanks, and I hope you continue to use my work!
