I. Introduction
---------------------------------------------------------------------
This Guide is strictly for the Japanese version of Megaman Battle
Network 5; people that have the English version do NOT need to read
this guide, and doing so is not advised if you own the English
version.

Capcom of America or Nintendo of America hasn't had a deal for
e-Reader Cards for the English version. Since the e-Reader is
pratically dead in America I've started this guide to balance out
the great features in Japanese versions of Team of Blues and
Team of Colonel.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
II. How to Transfer e-Cards to EXE5
---------------------------------------------------------------------
To Trasnfer e+Cards to Rockman EXE 5 you will need the following:

1.. e-Card Reader+ 
   Note: Normal Japanese e-Reader/English e-Reader will NOT work for
    scanning an EXE5 e+ Card. If you do so you will get an error on
    the e-Reader stating Region Error
2.. 1 Gameboy Advance is REQUIRED; the other can be a GBA, an SP,
      or a DS.
3.. 1 copy or Rockman EXE 5 Team of Blues or Team of Colonel
4.. 1 GBA Link Cable
5.. EXE5 e+ Cards

Once you have all the above start up the e-Card Reader+ and use the
first option--"Card Read". Scan a card in, SLOWLY, the a picture
will come up showing the above effect, and if it's a battle card it
will show the name of card, ID Number of Card, and show how much MB
it's worth on EXE5. For an Item Card it will show the name of Card
and the ID Number of the Card. Whichever is scanned on the bottom
dialog, it will want to connect to Rockman EXE 5; specifically, to
Rockman EXE 5's STATUS screen.

On Rockman EXE 5 Team of Blues or Team of Colonel, go to the Rockman
Status Screen with the Navi Customizer and the Time Records. A new
menu will pop up asking you if you want to transfer the data onto
EXE5 (first option). As for on the e+ Card Reader you will see the
dialog has changed on the bottom stating that it has connected to
EXE5. Once you are through that on EXE5 if you accept the data, the
e+ Card reader will transfer the card data to onto the game. Once the
data transfer is complete the e-Card Reader will say it has finished
and exit out; however, EXE 5 will ask you if you want to save, you
can choose "No" if you are going to trasnfer more cards if you want
to, and if you choose "Yes" you don't have to goto the Save menu
to save once the e-Card is transfered. 

EXE5 will bring you to a special e-Card Menu where you can see what
effects you have on (not exclusive to those given by cards). You can
go to this menu by being in the Rockman Status Menu and hitting
Right twice.

It will state the following values on the left side menu, which is
"Parameter", and their meanings are shown below them, indented:

Attack
 - Buster power. Charge Shot does 10x this number. Max 5 without
     cards.
Rapid
 - Buster speed. Max 5 without cards.
Charge 
 - Buster charge rate. Exponential increase in speed. Max 5 without
     cards, though anything above 5 will make very little difference.
Custom
 - Amount of Chips that you get to use per turn in battle. Max 8.
Mega Folder
 - Amount of Mega-class chips (Navi chips, generally) allowed in your
     Folder at any one time.
Giga Folder
 - Amount of Giga-class chips (Delta Ray Edge being an example)
      allowed in your Folder at any one time.
Soul Time
 - Time that Soul Unisons are retained. Chaos Soul Unisons will NEVER
      last more than one turn!

As for the right side menu, this is "Ability", which shows all abilities,
Card-inherent or otherwise, that Rockman has at present. Examples being
Super Armor, Under Shirt, I'm Fish, and such.

For the two selectable menu buttons, the top one will allow you to
enable/disable Cards. It will bring you to a list of the current Cards
downloaded, and will also show the card's name, MB required, abilities,
and parameters. Be aware that even if something is disabled, it will
still use MB; you must REMOVE it to free space.

To remove a card, hit the bottom of the two-button menu referred to
earlier. Once you do this, the same menu from the ON/OFF selection will
appear; this time, you select something, and the game will ask if it is
OK to delete the card's effect. This is the only way you can regain MB,
and you may be here often.

There is a max of 80 MB of memory available for card use at any time.

For Trasnfering an Item Card you can again use the Rockman Status Menu
to trasnfer certain Chips, Zenny and BugFrags for FREE and there is no
MB for Item e+ Cards. Meaning they can be used freely (though only
once).

For e+ Cards that give us a different Elemental Body and if we wanted
something like more HP or more attack power on the buster without
having your Element changed, we have to swipe the Elemental Body
we don't want first, then swipe it with a the Elemental Body we do
want. It should override the previous body that was set (FCR will
reset Body status).

If you have a card which has Up Rising or Down Rising parameters to
your HP, and this number is a percentage, you will want to scan it
AFTER the static HP parameter cards are scanned. Doing so will make
your maximum HP much higher than it would were the scanning order
reversed. An example: If you have a card which raises max HP by
100, and a card which raises max HP by 50%, you will want to scan
the card which raises HP by 100 first, then the card that raises
it by 50%.

A side note before we start the e+ Battle Card Effects list for
each card: if we have Bug Stopper in our Navi Customizer for any
e+ Battle Card that gives a "Bug" Ability, like HP Battle Bug or
Custom Battle Bug, the Bug Stopper will make them go away; the
only thing it won't do is make Down Rises on e+ Cards go away, for
instance something like Charge-1 or Air Shoes OFF. It's pretty nice
if you have a e+ Card like Gospel that has 4 or 5 different Down Rise
abilities that are just Bugs and one Up Rising ability that gives
HP+600.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
III. e+ Battle Cards
---------------------------------------------------------------------
There are a total of 100 e+ Cards in two different e+ Card series,
divided up by 50 (Part 1 and Part 2).

V. Forte Cross Rockman FAQ
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Here we start off having a card called Forte Cross Rockman. It is
only given out during Rockman EXE/Duel Masters Promotional Double
Feature Movies. There are two promotional cards given in a plastic
silver back; one having the special Forte Cross Rockman Card and one
having some DM Card which is not at all an e+ Card. It also comes in a
special plastic sleeve that says in Blue writing "ROCKMAN EXE THE
MOVIE", and it has the DM phoenix with Rockman's Emblem on in the
middle of it. The card's back in not like any normal EXE5 e+ Card.
It has Rockman's Emblem and two Spikes on the sides as if Rockman's
Emblem is over Forte's Emblem.

If you do not understand the purpose of the Emblems, these hold
Rockman's, Forte's, Blues', and select other Navi's "true" power,
as explained by none other than Forte himself in the anime.

The abilities of this card are different for Team of Blues and
Team of Colonel. This card is perhaps a very special card,
it also turns Rockman into a Forte-like appearance.

It's no Soul Unison change at all, it's a permanent effect to Rockman
until you delete the e+ Card like any other Battle e+ Card out there.
Although it has no MB amount on the card, it takes up 70 MB. Anyways,
it's still one cool card and you can have something minor for the
last 10MB to back yourself up. One  other thing that's cool about
this card once you have it scanned, if your going to do a NetBattle
with this Card on, on your freind's GBA on the top of the
sceen where it states the enemy name, it will say FCRockman (in
Japanese). I LOVED how they did that with this card ^^,.

Anywho here are the Effects for Forte Cross Rockman:

TEAM OF BLUES:                      TEAM OF COLONEL:
+ Charge Shot becomes                 + Charge Shot becomes
      Shooting Buster.                      Hell's Rolling.
+ HP +200                             + HP +20%
+ Super Armor                         + Float Shoes
                    + Normal Body (negates Elementals)
                    - Mega Folder -2
                    + Triple Buster

There's only one effect here which should sound unfamiliar, and that
is "Triple Buster". For clarification, Triple Buster makes your Buster
shot cover the row you are on, as well as the rows above and below
you; simply put, if you stand in the middle row, you can hit anything
on the screen!

There's much more this special card can do for us. The card allows us
to face Forte in Oran Island Area 3. Once we try to enter the
deadend in the Northeast corner a cutscene will take place out of
nowhere. Netto and Rockman sense a huge energy coming for them, and
the Tension music comes on. We then see Forte come out of a Nebula
Hole in the front of the area. Forte deadpans about Rockman's power
being "nothing but a cheap, worthless imitation", and promptly
attacks you to prove this.

---------------
Forte - 1500 HP
---------------
This battle is a very easy one, as Forte is very weak. He will
do Shooting Buster, which is very hard to avoid. I suggest using
something like Bubble Wrap or maybe one of the Barriers for
trying to dodge each shot in case you take a wrong turn dodging his
shots. Right after he may do Dark Arm Blade, either move up or down.
His range of the sword is great, so try to just move back and up.
He will also do Hell's Rolling to you which is the easiest to dodge.
You can stay in the front row in the middle and the dark
wheels shouldn't hit you, but right after he does that he could
just try to do the Dark Arm Blade again; incidentally, this would
trap you between the Rolling or his sword.

My suggestion for Team of Blues users would be to use Magnet Soul
or Gyro Soul and use any battle chip that can stun him right
before he does his attack. Hopefully you'll get a Counter Hit, and
be able to cause severe damage to him. Magnet Soul is very, very
useful here, as using Back+B can and will stun Forte if you pull
it off correctly.

For Team of Colonel use Shadow Soul using the Kawarimi Magic with
Back+B, or use Colonel Soul with the Charge Shot and just wait
for him to try to do his Shooting Buster and Hell's Rolling on you.

Attack Summary:

Shooting Buster: 100 damage, non-stun. Hits random panels in a
                   semi-tracking fashion. Difficult to dodge.
                   Move like mad and pray. Bubble Wrap or a
                   Barrier chip can help greatly here.

Dark Arm Blade:  150 damage, stun. Hits either like a Wide Sword
                   or a Long Sword. Forte can use this multiple
                   times in quick succession, so be careful.

Hell's Rolling:  200 damage per blade, non-stun. Easy to dodge;
                   either sit in the very front center of your
                   area, or stand back and move opposite the
                   direction the blade is coming from, and then
                   quickly move forward.

Some help with names of the Item Cards would be appreciated,
if anyone would be so kind. I'm rather uncertain on most of them.

This covers the first twelve of twenty cards of the first "Part".
In total, there are forty cards, split down the middle into two
"Parts".

Part 1: 50 Battle, 20 Item -> Done: 12 Item
Part 2: 50 Battle, 20 Item -> Done: 0 Item

VII. Where to look and buy Rockman EXE 5 e+ Cards
----------------------------------------------------------------------
e+ Cards Packs or Cases can be anywhere on markets in Japan. One way
to get these cards without having to go all the way to Japan is
Yahoo JP Auctions. You will need to find a importer for Yahoo JP
that can bid on auctions since most JP Auctions will NOT ship
internationally. Keep in mind that EXTRA fees will be incurred even if
losing an auction. My suggestion is to find an auction for a Buy It
Now price to win instantly. Don't win for a Pack, if you're wanting
to get a bunch a cards in a Part. You're going to want a case with
30 Packs. You will get doubles, but I'm sure people around here that
get into the e+ Card sets and have doubles from the cases. I'm sure
people are going to want to trade dupes to complete their sets to
be complete. If you're just wanting any ability in EXE5 then you
shouldn't really have to worry about having a complete set, you get
a LARGE variety of cards in a case.

VIII. Questions and Answers
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q. Who's Forte?
A.  "Bass", for you English version players.

Q. Will Bass Soul be in the English MMBN5?
A,  First of all, this NOT Bass Soul. This is called Forte Cross
      Rockman. It will most likely NOT be in MMBN5. END OF STORY.

Q. How many versions of this FAQ will there be?
A.  About 3 to 4. Once I'm done with getting all the cards translated
and thinking of a way to put the attributes of the cards into this
FAQ (once this is all done it will be a fairly large FAQ). I also
need to complete my Forte Encounter Walkthrough.

Q. How many Cases/Boxes of e+ Cards do you own?
A.  Nigoli: 6 as of now, Rockman EXE 4 E-Card Part 2, 3, 4,
              Rockman EXE 5 E-Card Part 1 (Getting Part 2 this month),
              Rockman Zero 3 Part 1, & 2. I'll own everything but the
              rare Rockman EXE 4 E-Card Part 1.
    Zajin: Only two. Rockman EXE 4 E-Card Part 4, and Rockman EXE 5
             E-Card Part 1. Nigoli so outclasses me. ;_;

Q. Will you sell me Cards or Doubles.
A.  Both: NO! The only thing I will do is trade, I won't take money
            for dupes as of now.
