    Fantasy VI Remix for the Sony PlayStation.
    
    Feel free to distribute it.
    
    While most any English speaking people playing this game have already played 
    its SNES counterpart, some may have problems navigating menus, as well as some
    of the re-done Save areas.

    In addition, some of the characters in the game have special moves that were 
    removed in the US game for the SNES.  These were the following:  They are 
    found in the same place as other characters' special moves, like Kain's Jump 
    and Edward's Sing.

        Cecil's HP Rosa/

    IX.  SAVE
    
    This area, being on CD and Memory Card, instead of cartridge, has been TOTALLY
    redone, so pay close attention!
    
                             --------
                             | Save |
                             --------
                      ---------------------
                      |   Memo File       |
                      |   Memory Card 1   |
                      |   Memory Card 2   |
                      |   Save Explanation|
                      ---------------------
    
    The following are what is said at the bottom of the screen when each selection
    is highlighted.
    
    -Memo File - You can save a memo file to the PlayStation itself for a while.  
     When you turn off the PlayStation's power, please do not forget to save it to
     a Memory Card.
    
    -Memory Card 1 - 1 save to a regular Memory Card
    
    -Memory Card 2 - 1 save to a regular Memory Card
    
    -Save Explanation - Hear an explanation of the Save System
    
    
    The following is a translation of what happens when you choose the 'Save 
    Explanation' (4th Choice). (NOTE: The *blahblah* notes are things that happen, 
    not actually said. ;)
    -----------------------------
    *Enter Chocobo*
    
    Do you want to hear an explanation of the Save System?
       -Yes
       -No
    
    *If No:*
    You don't want to listen...... .
    ......   ...... .
    
    *If Yes:*
    There are 2 Save Systems in this game.
    
    *Chocobo morphs into Memory Card*
    
    The first is saving to a regular Memory Card...
    
    *Morphs into PlayStation*
    
    The other one is for saving adventures onto the PlayStation itself, called 
    Memo.
    
    *Morphs back to Chocobo*
    
    First, you need to choose the Save Mode screen.
    
    *Display of choosing the first option, Memo File, shown*
    
    If you wish to continue your adventure, save it by 'Memo' quickly.
    
    It is essential not to miss saving your game.
    
    But!!
    
    If you press the Reset Button or turn off the PlayStation's power, data in the
    'Memo' will be...
    
    *falls down, smack(!)*
    
    Gone, and...... .
    
    *begins bobbling back and forth with bubbles*
    
    If you don't save, your game will be like a bubble in water...... . *i.e., 
    GONE!*
    
    Then there is the Soft Reset.
    
    You will go back to the Title screen if you press Start button, Select button,
    L1, L2, R1, and
    R2, at the same time.
    
    That's the Soft Reset!!
    
    If you use the Soft Reset, your data in 'Memo' will not be erased.  It is the 
    same as if you lose a battle...
    
    *Chocobo splits into 2*
    
    If you save the game to a Memory Card after you Memo, the new data will be 
    replaced with the Memo Data automatically.
    
    *Morphs into a PlayStation & Memory Card*
    
    There will be no worries if you do a Memory Card Save.  When you finish playing
    your game, don't forget to save it to a Memory Card!!
    
    *Morphs back to Chocobo*
    
    Did you understand?  You understood?
    
    This is the end of the explanation for the Save System.
    -----------------------------
    
    That's all for this translation!  If you have any questions, comments, or 
    things I could have done better, for next time, feel free to email me.
