      Clues and Recipes location
      =======================================================================
    
      Recipes are harder to find and some of them can only be found or given
      to you when you talk to some humans or reploids at certain moments.
      There is also many clues given to you as to what parts you should try
      to mix to find a chip.  It is not necessary to find a recipe to create
      a new chip, as long as you have the right parts.
    
    
      Clues from Cerveau
      ------------------
    
      - An easy way to make chips is to find recipes, but better chips don't
        have recipes.
    
      - Some chips have different levels.  Just add a certain something to
        a level 1 chip and it becomes a level 2 chip.
    
      - Try just combining some of the parts you have.  You might discover
        a brand-new chip.
    
      - If you want to make a rare chip, try finding more parts.
    
    
      Clues from Hirondelle
      ---------------------
    
      - I order to make body chips, you'll need to pick up Ceratanium.
    
    
      Clues from Faucon
      -----------------
    
      - If you can find an S-Crystal, Hirondelle might trade you one
        Sub-tank.
    
    
      Clues from Typhon
      -----------------
    
      - You can make an S-Crystal with Ceratanium and some enemy parts.
        The recipe requires one type of Variant, some robot that spits out
        other robots and then something with an orange body.
    
    
      Clues from your Elf
      -------------------
    
      - Elf level 3:  Use magnet enemy and frog enemy parts for a new chip.
                      (Frog foot chip)
    
      - Elf level 4:  Ceratatium + propeller + reflective beam parts = 
                      new chip.  (Reflect body chip)
    
      - Elf level 5:  With hard mechaniloid parts you can strenghten your
                      body.
    
      - Elf level 6:  Hammer + Flame thrower + spinner + Ceratanium =
                      new chip.  (Rolling body chip)

      This section is to provide you with a list of enemies that drop parts.
      It is not a complete enemy list.  Most of the stages are revisitable
      unless there is a special mention about the area.
      Since it is a part, Ceratanium is also mentioned, although it is not
      dropped by any enemy.  It is simply lying there waiting to be picked
      up.
    
      Mission 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12 can be taken in any order and are
      fully revisitable and most of the parts in the game can be found in
      those areas.

      ------------------------------

      Tips and tricks
      =======================================================================
    
      Easy Ceratanium parts
      ---------------------
    
      Later in the game, when you can freely access the Ragnarok Control
      mission (mission 13), you can find a very easy and very quick
      Ceratanium part to grab.  You will need the Double Jump chip to do
      this.  From your starting point, dash to the right and do a double
      jump to reach a pole onto which you can grab and jump again to a
      ledge above with the Ceratanium part.
    
    
      Poplan parts
      ------------
    
      Poplan is a plant look-a-like enemy that tries to grab you if you
      jump over it.  One way to destroy it is to simply grab it with the
      Zero Knuckle when it is stretched out.  You can also destroy it with
      fire.  You can do it with the Burning Shot or Flame Fang Ex Skills,
      your Elf with the Animal trait set to level 3 or any Zero Knuckle
      weapon with a fire based attack such as V.Fire.
    
    
      GlassCannon parts
      -----------------
    
      GlassCannon parts can only be found in the Artificial Sun mission.
      While fighting the Mid-Boss Tyrine, notice the eight GlassCannons
      rotating aroung it.  The core itself (Tyrine) will not drop parts
      but the cannons will drop GlassCannons.  Once the eight cannons are
      destroyed, you must exit the stage and return to the Boss to collect
      more GlassCannons.
    
    
      MiniCrabanB and MiniCrabanR parts
      ---------------------------------
    
      These parts can only be found while fighting the Mid-Boss ClabangerNS
      in the Magnetic Zone mission.  This crab look-a-like enemy will drop
      four MiniCrabans from time to time, two blue crabs and two red crabs.
      As long as you don't hit the Boss itself, you can make this fight
      last as long as you want until you collect the desired amount of
      MiniCraban parts.
    
    
      SerpentGear parts
      -----------------
    
      These parts can only be found while fighting the Mid-Boss GearBank in
      the Hibernation Chamber mission.  This boss spits out six SerpentGears
      from one of its four hatches. As long as you leave at least one hatch
      intact, you can make this fight last as long as you want until you
      collect the desired amount of SerpentGear parts.
    
    
      Moloid parts
      ------------
    
      These parts can only be found in mission seven, when the Settlement
      is under attack.  This particular enemy is a converted Shotloid that
      uses a hammer placed on top of its head to try to smash you.  Since
      this mission's stage is not revisitable, you must make sure that you
      have the desired amount of Moloid parts before fighting the boss.
    
    
      ScrapElf parts
      --------------
    
      These parts can only be found in the Hibernation Chamber mission.
      You must set the weather to a sunny day.  Once you reach the second
      half of this stage, you will reach a part with four conveyor belts
      with a light bulb above them.  You must grab one of the four lamps
      with the Zero Knuckle and this will act like a flashlight once
      activated.  The next corridor is where the ScrapElf is hibernating.
      Once you pass in front of a glass tube, the elf breaks free. The
      last elf is the one that you must try to "push" into the sun ray
      that's coming from the ceiling.  With your lamp activated, the elf
      will try to flee from your beam of light and that's how you must
      try to guide it into the sun ray, killing it instantly.
    
      This part cannot be found in hard mode since you cannot change the
      weather and there won't be a sun ray to guide the ScrapElf into.
      It doesn't matter if you can't have it since this part is only used
      to make the Elf body chip but you wouldn't be able to use it anyway
      as you can't raise you Elf level in hard mode.

      at: tracerturbo@hotmail.com
    
    
      Pantheon Corpse parts
      ---------------------
    
      These parts can only be found in the Hibernation Chamber mission.
      In the exact same corridor as the ScrapElf, there are P.Corpses
      lying on the ground.  Once a ScrapElf has broken free of a glass
      tube, you must wait for it to inhabit one of the P.Corpse and
      reactivating it.  You cannot destroy a P.Corpse until it is
      activated.
    
    
      Bombadeer, EleDeserter and Hecrysta parts
      -----------------------------------------
    
      These parts can be found in several stages but they are easy to miss.
      Whenever you encounter a Mechameson, don't destroy it right away.
      Instead, destroy the enemies that are coming out of the Mechameson.
      It will spit out two Hecrysta, three EleDeserter and three Bombadeer.
      Mechameson has an endless supply of these little mechaniloids so,
      destroy them as many as you need.
    
    
      Junk Chips, JunkHead, JunkBody, JunkFoot
      ----------------------------------------
    
      Once you managed to build the three Junk Chips, equipping them
      together will give you a special power as well as a great handicap.
      You will also need to cancel all Cyber Elf effects (Level 0) for
      the chips to take effect.  What it will give you is the attack power
      for the Z-Saber, Buster Shot and Zero Knuckle will be doubled.
      However, you will also take twice the damage an enemy can inflict.
      Zero will also be green in color.
