    )INTRO TO THE GUIDE(
    |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    If you were not already aware, the passwords of many of the Mega man
    games are not just random placements of bubbles or numbers, but rather
    rely on theorems. Mega man 2-6 use rather simple theorems to determine
    which Robot Masters you have defeated and what items you have gained;
    Mega man 7 and Mega man X-X3 also use theorems, but they are even more
    complex.    
    
    This guide covers the mechanics of the sixth game in the series, Mega
    man 6, and will help you to create one of the possible 2592 passwords.
    
    If you want to make lude comments or other forms of meaningless
    ramblings send them to Fragnarok@hotmail.com, where they will simple
    rot.

    #######################################################################
    )OVERVIEW OF EACH COORDINATES(
    |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    As you should know, Mega man 6's passwords are on a 6x6 grid, with
    numbers running along the X-axis and letters along the Y-axis. Here is
    a list of which each of the 36 coordinates controls, grouped by
    letters: 
    
    -A's-
    
    A1 - Destroys Flame man if you don't have the Energy Balancer; Keeps
    Blizzard man and Tomahawk man alive if you have the Energy Balancer

    #######################################################################
    )MAKING A PASSWORD(
    |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    When you go to form a password simply remember not to pair two
    coordinates that are grouped with one another. If you can't figure out
    which are grouped here is a simpler list:
    
    -Group 1: Energy Balancer-
    You don't have it: F5
    You have it: E5 
    
    -Group 2: Blizzard man and Tomahawk man-
    
    Without EB-
    Blizzard man destroyed, Tomahawk man alive: C2
    Blizzard man alive, fake Tomahawk man destroyed: E2
    Blizzard man alive, real Tomahawk man destroyed: D4
    Blizzard man destroyed, fake Tomahawk man destroyed: B4  
    Blizzard man destroyed, real Tomahawk man destroyed: F4
    Blizzard man and Tomahawk man alive: A2
    
    With EB-
    Blizzard man destroyed, Tomahawk man alive: A2
    Blizzard man alive, fake Tomahawk man destroyed: B1 
    Blizzard man alive, real Tomahawk man destroyed: D1
    Blizzard man destroyed, fake Tomahawk man destroyed: B2  
    Blizzard man destroyed, real Tomahawk man destroyed: D2
    Blizzard man and Tomahawk man alive: A1
    
    -Group 3: Flame man and Centaur man-
    
    Without EB-
    Flame man destroyed, Centaur man alive: A1 
    Flame man alive, fake Centaur man destroyed: C1 
    Flame man alive, real Centaur man destroyed: F1
    Flame man destroyed, fake Centaur man destroyed: E1  
    Flame man destroyed, real Centaur man destroyed: F3
    Flame man and Centaur man alive: B2
    
    With EB-
    Flame man destroyed, Centaur man alive: C4
    Flame man alive, fake Centaur man destroyed: D3 
    Flame man alive, real Centaur man destroyed: F3
    Flame man destroyed, fake Centaur man destroyed: D4  
    Flame man destroyed, real Centaur man destroyed: F4
    Flame man and Centaur man alive: C3
    
    -Group 4: Plant man and Knight man-
    
    Without EB-
    Plant man destroyed, Knight man alive: A4
    Plant man alive, fake Knight man destroyed: A5 
    Plant man alive, real Knight man destroyed: C4
    Plant man destroyed, fake Knight man destroyed: E3  
    Plant man destroyed, real Knight man destroyed: E4
    Plant man and Knight man alive: A3
    
    With EB-
    Plant man destroyed, Knight man alive: A6 
    Plant man alive, fake Knight man destroyed: B5 
    Plant man alive, real Knight man destroyed: D5
    Plant man destroyed, fake Knight man destroyed: B6  
    Plant man destroyed, real Knight man destroyed: D6
    Plant man and Knight man alive: A5
    
    -Group 5: Wind man and Yamato man-
    
    Without EB-
    Wind man destroyed, Yamato man alive: B3
    Wind man alive, fake Yamato man destroyed: B5 
    Wind man alive, real Yamato man destroyed: D3
    Wind man destroyed, fake Yamato man destroyed: D1  
    Wind man destroyed, real Yamato man destroyed: D6
    Wind man and Yamato man alive: B1
    
    With EB-
    Wind man destroyed, Yamato man alive: E2
    Wind man alive, fake Yamato man destroyed: F1 
    Wind man alive, real Yamato man destroyed: B3
    Wind man destroyed, fake Yamato man destroyed: F2  
    Wind man destroyed, real Yamato man destroyed: B4
    Wind man and Yamato man alive: E1
    
    -Group 6: Unused digits-
    C5, C6, E6, F6
    
    As you can see to make a code you will only need a total of 5 bubbles.
    If you mark all Robot masters as destroyed then you will go to the
    first level of Mr. X's Castle. There is no password to get farther then
    that.
