    A. INTRODUCTION
    ===============
    Greetings everyone!  After three years of retirement from FAQ writing (I'm 
    most well known for my Legends FAQs), I've decided to take another crack at 
    it with my series of NaviCust Setup Guides.  While there are plenty of 
    guides that discuss how to build the best chip folder, there are none out 
    there that go over how to build the best NaviCust Setup, until now.
    
    In this guide, I will show you how to build the best NaviCust Setup for many 
    purposes and situations throught this game.  I will start with some that I 
    made myself which should get you through almost all your needs, but I also 
    include a section of submitted NaviCust Setups sent in by other GameFAQs and 
    MegaMan Network members (in those cases the comments section is by the 
    creator of the Setup and not by me).
    
    
    
    ========================
    B. NAVICUST SETUP BASICS
    ========================
    
    1. Rules
    ========
    Although the game itself covers these basics in the tutortial email you get 
    with your NaviCust, here are the basic rules to remember when designing your 
    own NaviCust Setups.  First off, here is what the NaviCust map looks like:
    
    No ExpMemories:     One ExpMemory:     Both ExpMemories:
    | | | | |           | | | | | |        | | | | | |
    | | | | |           | | | | | |        | | | | | |
    | | | | |=>         | | | | | |=>      | | | | | |=>
    | | | | |           | | | | | |        | | | | | |
                                           | | | | | |
    
    You start out with sixteen squares in your NaviCust, with four squares on 
    the Command Line.  After collecting one ExpMemory, the map increases to 
    twenty squares with five squares on the Command Line, and with both 
    ExpMemories, the map will have a full twenty-five squares just waiting to be 
    filled with your favorite programs!
    
    Also as a reminder, be sure to remember the basic rules for NaviCust Setup 
    building in order to avoid unpleasant bugs:
    
    1. All solid color programs MUST be on the Command Line in order to 
    function, even if you are using the BugStopper.
    2. All textured color programs MUST NOT be on the Command Line, unless you 
    are using the BugStopper.
    3. You are only allowed to use up to FOUR different colors of programs at a 
    time, unless you are using the BugStopper.
    4. Programs of the same color MUST NOT be allowed to touch one another, 
    unless you are using the BugStopper.  They can touch the corners, but not 
    the sides.  These are the abbreviations for all the colors:
       P: Pink
       Y: Yellow
       W: White
       B: Blue
       R: Red
       G: Green
       *: Any color (for programs that come in more than one color)
    5. All these NaviCust Setups assume that you have the full twenty-five 
    square NaviCust map (although I also include the best way, IMO, to use a 
    sixteen or twenty square NaviCust map), you have all the appopriate Spin Key 
    Items (SpinPink, SpinYelo, SpinWhit, etc), and do NOT use any bugs unless 
    otherwise stated (most common exception is placing the SneakRun or Collect 
    program off the Command Line to attract more battles or get zenny instead of 
    chips respectively).
    6. I do NOT include any Setups made for NetBattling, nor do any include 
    NetBattle-only programs (Rush/Beat/Tango) since I have no one available to 
    NetBattle with.  ALL these Setups were designed with the main single-player 
    game in mind.
    
    
    2. NaviCust Setup Sub-Themes
    ============================
    Some of these NaviCust Setups include three sub-themes to reflect the three 
    major styles of gameplay:
       a. MegaBuster Sub-Theme: This is for players who prefer to have as strong    
          a Mega Buster as possible as well as for those who don't have the   
          neccesary programs for the CustomMenu and Mega Chip sub-themes.
       b. CustomMenu Sub-Theme: If you like to have as many chips in the Custom   
          Menu as possible, then this sub-theme is for you.
       c. Mega Chip Sub-Theme: Players who love to abuse Mega/Navi chips will  
          probably take a liking to this sub-theme.
    
    
    3. Complete List of Programs
    ============================
    Here is a list of all 65 programs in this game (62 if you don't count the 
    Rush/Tango/Beat programs, which are useless in the main single player game).  
    To use the compression codes (where applicable), highlight the program on 
    your program list (DON'T select it or place it on the NaviCust), then press 
    and hold right on the D-Pad while entering the code.  All NaviCust Setups in 
    this guide use COMPRESSED programs.

    COMMENTS: 
    This is the best NaviCust Setup to use starting out.  This gives you a maxed 
    out buster and will protect you from a fatal hit as long as your HP is 2 or 
    greater.

    5. Speed+1 (W)
    6. Charge+1 (Y)
    (need SpinYllw for this one)
    
    COMMENTS: 
    This is the best NaviCust Setup to use after getting the first ExpMemory.  
    Not only will you have a maxed out MegaBuster and UnderSht protection, but 
    you are also guaranteed a chip after every battle with the Collect program.  
    This is especially important as it makes getting all the chips and program 
    advances much, much easier.

    COMMENTS: 
    Although this is similar to the Plenty in Twenty Setup, this takes full 
    advantage of the twenty-five square map.  By placing the SneakRun off the 
    Command Line in the MegaBuster sub-theme, you will attract more battles 
    making collecting chips even faster.  This is perfect for players who love 
    abusing chip traders.  You can of course, omit the SneakRun program if you 
    prefer not having so many battles.

    Have you earned your Standard Chip badge, gotten all the program advances 
    you can, and now need tons of zenny to buy up all the HP Memories and other 
    goodies?  Then this Setup is for you!  By placing the Collect program off 
    the Command Line, you're guaranteed to get zenny (or occassionally, a HP 
    recovery) instead of a chip after every battle.

    COMMENTS: 
    In addition to all the benefits you get from the Zenny Lovers Setup, the 
    addition of the Millions program also guarantees that all GMDs will give you 
    zenny too!  The main catch is that the Millions program costs 22 bugfrags, 
    so it's probably not a good idea to use precious bugfrags to buy this 
    program until you've bought the GigaChip #5 and the two MegaChips from the 
    BugFrag dealers first.

    This Setup will give you a full EIGHT chips to choose from in the Custom 
    Menu instead of the standard five.  Unfortunately, even though there is an 
    additional Custom1 program available, it is still not possible to have more 
    than eight chips in the Custom Menu (except for the Number Soul in Team 
    Colonel, which gives you ten).

    COMMENTS: 
    Can't decide whether you want more chips in the Custom Menu or more 
    Mega/Navi chips?  Then give this Setup a try.  It gives you a choice of 
    eight chips in the Custom Menu and seven Mega/Navi chips in your folder.  
    The only catch is that you'll have to make a small sacrifice in the 
    MegaBuster department.  Still, this is a very balanced Setup overall.

    TWO Giga Chips in your folder and give you a maxed out MegaBuster.

    Although this is probably the most one-sided of all the Setups (minimal 
    MegaBuster, Custom Menu, and Mega/Navi chip capacity), you do get the most 
    extra HP possible (1050 HP).  With all the HP Memories, it is possible to 
    have up to 2050 HP!

    Although this Setup adds "only" 900 extra HP, it more than makes up for the 
    150 HP difference with the use of the AutoHeal program (which is not 
    possible in the HP Lovers Setup without a HP drain bug).  The AutoHeal 
    automatically recovers 10% of your max HP, which with all the HP Memories, 
    is an automatic 190 HP recovery after every battle!

    COMMENTS:
    This is the ultimate defensive Setup if you do not have the AntiDmg program 
    yet.  You get a Barrier to start with every battle, plus you essentially get 
    unlimited Guard ability with the Reflect program.  If you do not have the 
    Reflect program, then replace Reflect with the Shield program (and you'll 
    have plenty of room for the UnderSht program too) instead.  FstBarr is not 
    included in the CustomMenu sub-theme because it is not possible to fit it in 
    that Setup.

    This is similar to the Defense, Defense, Defense! Setup, but this will let

    Think the HubBatc is too big to be useful?  Think again!  Unfortunately, it 
    is not possible to use any other programs with HubBatc other than the ones 
    listed.  But who cares when the HubBatch gives you everything the BodyPack 
    does (AirShoes, FlotShoes, SprArmor, UnderSht) PLUS Barrier, Shield, 
    Custom1, and MegFldr1!  The downside?  You can't get the HubBatc until near 
    the very end of the game and it cuts your max HP in half.  Bummer.

    Looking for viruses of a particular element?  Then try this Setup.  Here you 
    can place any of the four elemental virus programs without worrying about 
    any bugs.  Use Oilbody for Heat viruses, Fish for Aqua viruses, Battery for 
    Elec viruses, or Jungle for Wood viruses.  The Collect program is also 
    included in the MegaBuster Sub-Theme because why else would you want viruses 
    of a particular element other than to get their chips?

    The SprArmr is the most important piece of this puzzle, as it allows you to 
    get hit by the enemy without losing any Busting Level points.  Now all you 
    have to do is beat the Navi in less than 30 seconds, and the S rank and SP 
    chip are yours!  You also get seven chips in your Custom Menu along with a 
    maxed out MegaBuster.

    Although this Setup gives you a very weak MegaBuster, it more than makes up 
    for it with a full eight chips in the Custom Menu, seven Mega Chips in your 
    folder, and the SprArmr.  Although the SprArmr is not needed for Busting 
    Level in this case (you don't need to get a high rank against Bass to win 
    his Giga Chip or Bass SP for his badge, just survive), it is very helpful in 
    making sure your powerful attacks don't get blocked by Bass' attacks.

    This Setup allows almost all parts can be collected fairly early in the 
    game, maximum damage for charged Soul Unison shots, SprArmr for SP Navi 
    fights, and the last two programs allow you to choose between extra HP, 
    extra Soul turns, or one of each.  This Setup is best for Net roaming (with 
    both HP+100 programs) or NetBattling (both versions).

    same time: Grassfield + Fire Element, or Program Advances etc.

    COMMENTS:
    I did my best to maximize both offense and defense on this one.  So my 
    config results in, Attack Lv5, Speed Lv5, Charge Lv5, 860 HP (560 + 300, I'm 
    horrible at finding HPMemories..).  And the added benefit of FirstBarrier 
    and Undershirt, of course.

    COMMENTS:
    The Varia Suit setup returns again, but with modifications. With Soul Charge 
    Shots now able to be altered via your NCP blocks, a ChargeMAX is in there 
    for some quick Charge Shots. This helps the really good Charge attack from 
    Magnet, Gyro, Search, Proto and so on come out faster. Aside from that, it 
    remains basically the same. SuperArmour is in there for its lovely ability 
    to negate knockback while the CustomBlocks return for more Chip abuse 
    goodness. Like before, the last set of spaces can be one of many Blocks 
    depending on your taste.  Like to abuse your favourite Soul's abilities but 
    hate the 3 turn Limit? Make it 4 and get one more SearchShuffle! Want some 
    HP to fall back on? Then give yourself a little boost (this is especially 
    handy with Bass/SolCross as one raises your HP by 200 while the other raises 
    it by a certain percentage)! Want to get more out or your Soul charge shots?
    Then pump up the power.  I myself use SoulT as Souls are a mainstay in my 
    battle style, but others might wanna do something different. Either way this 
    setup will give you the most out of your Chip Folder and Souls while leaving 
    some room for Varias things.

    E. SPECIAL THANKS
    =================
    1. Capcom: For making the wonderful Battle Network series possible (I'd 
    still like MegaMan Legends 3 and/or Misadventures of Tron Bonne 2 though)
    2. Nintendo: For making the GameCube and Game Boy Player, where I most like 
    to play Battle Network games (sometimes I use my DS though)
    3. Tim and Magnet_Man at MegaMan Network (www.megaman-network.com): Their

    provided me with all the Compression Codes.
    4. BradyGames MMBN5 guide: Their strategy guide also helped me make sure I 
    got all the NaviCust programs.  Too bad they're no help in the Compression 
    Codes. :(
