------------------------2. CHARACTER BIOS [CHB]---------------------- 
---------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm trying to keep this FAQ as spoiler free as I can, so I won't give 
to much info on the character backgrounds and the way they unfold 
over the game.  You can see that for yourself :).

CLOUD STRIFE

The main dude, you play and control him, well most of the time.  
Cloud works as a mercenary and is an ex-member of SOLDIER. He is 21, 
173cm high and he branishes an enormous sword which can cut almost 
anything in two. He was born on August 19 in Nibelhiem.  After being 
hired by AVALANCHE, he gradually gets caught up in a massive struggle 
for the life of the planet.

TIFA LOCKHEART

Tifa attacks with a 'glove', in other words punches and kicks. Bright 
and optimistic, Tifa always cheers up the others when they're down. 
But don't let her looks fool you, she can decimate almost any enemy 
with her fists. She is one of the main members of AVALANCHE. She and 
Cloud were childhood friends, and although she has strong feelings 
for him, she would never admit it. 20 years old, 167cm tall, and born 
in Nibelhiem on May 3rd.

BARRET WALLACE

Head of the underground resistance movement, AVALANCHE, Barret is 
fighting the mega-conglomerate Shinra, Inc. which has monopolized 
Mako energy by building special reactors to suck it out of the 
planet. Barret depends on brute strength and his "Gun-arm" to see him 
through. His wife died in an accident several years ago, and he now 
lives with his daughter Marlene. 35 years old, 197cm tall, and born 
in North Corel on December 15th.  Has the most annoying dialogue in 
the entire game!!

RED XIII

Just as his name implies, he is an animal with fire-red fur. But 
under his fierce exterior is an intelligence surpassing that of any 
human's. His sharp claws and fangs make him good at close-range 
fighting, but other than that, not much is known about him. He is 45 
years old, but only 15 or 16 in human years, has a height of 120cm 
and was born in Cosmo Canyon. 

CID HIGHWIND

Cid is a tough-talking, warm-hearted old pilot who hasn't forgotten 
his dreams. There's no better pilot by air or sea. He believes 
someday he'll fly to the ends of the universe. With his handsome 
spear and knowledge of machinery, he throws himself into any attack 
regardless of the danger. He likes to swear to say the least.  32 
years old, 178cm tall and born on February 22nd. 

AERIS GAINSBOROUGH

Young, beautiful, and somewhat mysterious, Aeris met Cloud while 
selling flowers on the streets of Midgar. She decided to join him 
soon after. Her unusual abilities enable her to use magic, but she 
seems much more interested in deepening the love triangle between 
herself, Cloud, and Tifa. She uses a rod to attack her enemies, but 
is a much more skilled magic user.  22 years old, 163cm and born on 
February 7th. 

CAIT SITH

Cait Sith rides around on the back of a huge stuffed Mog he magically 
bought to life. Megaphone in hand, he's always shouting orders and 
creating dopey attacks. When his slot machine attack works, the enemy 
lines look like an overturned toy box (Erm, I do beg to differ....). 
His hobby is fortune telling, but like his personality, it's pretty 
unreliable. 100cm tall.

VINCENT VALENTINE

A mysterious and mysical man, Vincents past connections with Shinra 
and his previous occupation as a Turk are what caused him to join 
Cloud and the others on their journey. He may not look so tough, but 
inside him lives a fearsome power. His quick wrist and accurate shot 
proves to be a necessity in decisive battle. Oh yes, Vincent is cool, 
you know it's true!!! 27 years old, 184cm and born on October 13th.

YUFFIE KISARAGI

A sneeky and somewhat selfish girl, Yuffie forced herself to join 
AVALANCHE to get a "certain something" for herself. Despite her 
arrogance and self-centred attitude, she is one of the best when it 
comes to fighting. With her shuriken in hand, there isn't another 
person you'd rather have on your side in a fight.  She is 16 years 
old, 160cm tall, and was born in Wutai on November 20th.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------3. LIMIT BREAKS [LIB]------------------------ 
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Every character has seven Limit Breaks (2 in each level, with 3 
levels and one final Level Four Limit) excluding Cait Sith, who has 
two of them, and Vincent, who has four breaks. To earn your Limit 
Breaks you need to either kill a certain number of enemies with the 
character (have them deliver the finishing blow) or use the previous 
Limit Break a certain number of times. 
 
Level 1, first break:  
- You start with this one already.  
 
Level 1, second break  
- Use your first break of that level 8 times. Vincent and Cait Sith 
don't have these.  
 
Level 2, first break  
-Kill 80 enemies, or with Vincent only kill 60 enemies in order to 
fulfil this requirement.  
 
Level 2, second break:  
- Use your first break of that level 6 times. Vincent and Cait Sith 
don't have these. 
 
Level 3, first break:  
- Again kill 80 more enemies, 60 for Vincent.  
 
Level 3, second break:  
- You must use your first break of that level 4 times. Vincent and 
Cait Sith don't have these. 
 
Level 4, extreme limit break:  
- Learn all your character's other Limit Breaks (6 for everyone but 
Cait, 3 for Vincent). Then use your character's Limit Break Manual on 
that person.

-----------------------------4. WALKTHROUGH [WLK]--------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

 ----------------
| DISC ONE [DSC1]|
 ----------------

-----------------------1.1 - MAKO POWER PLANT [PP1]------------------

After the end of the beginning FMV, when you can move Cloud, check 
the body of the closest guard twice to get two Potions.  Head north 
towards the door where the other AVALANCHE members go.  Defeat the 
guards who attack you and then go through the door to your left to go 
outside.  Meet the AVALANCHE members, Biggs, Wedge and Jessie, learn 
a bit more about Cloud, and then name him and Barret.  Head up, 
right, up and left through the door.  You will come to a T-junction; 
follow the other members to enter the plant itself.

Talk to Barret, and he joins you in your party, so you can now fight 
with him.  Talk to Biggs to open the first door, then to Jessie to 
open the second one.  Go through the passageway to the south after 
the second door to get a Phoenix Down in the chest.  Talk to Jessie 
to enter the elevator.  Once inside push the button with the up/down 
button with two arrows on.  Listen to Barret and Cloud argue then 
follow Jessie out of the elevator and down the red stairs, and 
through the door.  Jump over the gap; talk to Jessie and down the 
ladder.  Get the Potion half-hidden in the smoke, and down the stairs 
and ladder.  Go south to the next area.  Follow the pipes, down the 
stairs to the Save Point.  Follow the walkway south.  Pick up the 
Restore material (which you can't use yet).  Watch as Cloud gets 
freaky and then plants the bomb, and your first boss battle of FF7 
begins.............

-----Guard Scorpion-----

Don't worry about it's Search Scope attack as it doesn't cause any HP 
damage.  Make Cloud use his Bolt magic and Barret attack with his 
gun.  Use this method and Limit Breaks to inflict damage until it's 
tail goes up.  Ignore what Cloud says and don't attack while it's 
tail is up or it will counter big time.  Just heal if needed or 
defend until the tail goes down and continue like before.

Equip the Assault Gun you receive for Barret after defeating the 
boss.  You now have ten minutes to escape the plant. Retrace your 
steps, save if you like, up the ladder, over the pipes and talk to 
Jessie near where the Potion was before.  Free her and retrack to the 
elevator.  Go up a level and talk to the AVALANCHE members to open 
the doors back to the T-junction where the game takes over.  Watch as 
the reactor explodes.

-----------------------1.2 - MIDGAR CITY [MDG1]----------------------

After you escape, head up the stairs and go left.  You can talk to 
the flower girl (Aeris) and pick the bottom option, then the top, and 
then you can choose to buy a flower from her for one gil.  Go south, 
get the Potion near the lampposts, (you'll see it shining).  Go south 
again.  Some guards will approach you.  You can fight them if you 
like for EXP, gil etc, (don't worry you'll be fully healed), but bare 
in mind they keep on coming and you'll eventually get cornered.  
Cloud will then jump onto the moving train below.  You will see the 
AVALANCHE members talking and then Cloud enters the train.  They talk 
for a bit, then walk towards the screen (forwards, to where the team-
members jumped off).  Talk to the people here, ending with Jessie, 
who will show you a simulation of the Midgar rail system and explain 
about Mako reactors.  Approach Barret, learn about the plate and 
eventually you will arrive at the train station. Talk to the people 
here and follow the team to the left. You can go right to the train 
graveyard, but there's nothing there.  There's a save point to the 
north, and you can talk to the guy here to take a look at the Plate 
then follow the team members to the left.  You can talk to people 
here if you want.  You can rest at the top floor of the tall building 
for ten Gil, but there's no point as you will regain HP here before 
you fight again anyway.  Wait as Barret kicks everyone out of the bar 
then talk to him to let you inside AVALANCHE's hideout.

---------------------1.3 - AVALANCHE HIDEOUT [HID]-------------------

Here, you will meet Tifa, and Marlene, Barret's daughter.  Answer 
however you like when TIfa ask you a question.  You can name her, and 
if you bought a flower from Aeris earlier, you can choose to give the 
flower to either Tifa or Marlene.  Talk to the other AVALANCHE 
members, then try to leave by walking toward the door, and Barret 
will run in.  You can talk to Tifa for a while, then head downstairs 
by going over to the lift where everyone else went, and pressing O.  
Again, talk to everyone here, then try to go back upstairs and Tifa 
will come down and talk to you, then go back upstairs using the lift.  
Try to leave and Tifa will talk to you for a while.  Answer however 
and see a flashback from Cloud and Tifa's past.  Barret will come up 
and give you his stash :) of 1,500 Gil.  You'll stay the night and 
wake up in the room downstairs.  Go back upstairs to meet Tifa and 
Barret.  Talk to them both, and you can choose to learn about materia 
too, and you can now access the materia menu from the main menu.  You 
should also go the tall building's middle floor. You can buy armour 
and other items from the first floor shop.  On the middle floor there 
is an 'All' materia at the feet of the guy on the left, take it and 
get the Ether from the chest that falls after taking it.  You can 
learn about various things about the game in this room, recommended 
if you are feeling confused!!  You can also buy materia and items in 
the store to the left of the tall building.  When you are ready to 
leave, go to the right twice, and board the train.

-------------------1.4 - RETURN TO MAKO PLANT [PP2]------------------

Learn about your next mission, and you can talk to everyone here if 
you like, but to continue you need to talk to Tifa.  When the ID 
Check discovers you, you have 15 seconds to get to the next car in 
line each time.  You can talk to the people in the cars but it's just 
a waste of time.  When you are running through the third car, someone 
walking past will nick some of your Gil.  You can get it back, by 
talking to him twice and picking the second option before exiting to 
the next car.  Rub through the cars until you get to the end of the 
train.  Talk to Tifa and you, Tifa and Barret will jump off the 
train, into the sewers below.  

From where you jumped off, you can either go north or south.  If you 
go south, after a few screens some guards will turn up who you can 
fight.  After you beat them, more will come out.  Each time you have 
an option to fight or run, so you can fight this battle as many times 
as you like.  It's good for EXP, Gil and AP.  Once you are done 
there, or just want to continue without fighting the guards, go 
north.  You will arrive at a green beam security barrier.  There is a 
shaft to the left.  Examine it with O, and choose to top option 
twice.

Go to the right and pick up the Ether.  Go down the ladder.  In the 
next screen, go down, left and down the ladder again.  Go down the 
stairs and to the left, ignore the ladder in the middle.  Talk to 
Wedge and go up the ladder to meet Jessie.  Take the Potion to the 
left, and go down the ladder to the far left, not the one next to 
Jessie.  Keep going down the ladder and go the right to pick up a 
Tent and find the Save Point.  Talk to Biggs and go up the ladder to 
enter the plant.

Go down the chute to the right, and go to the left and through the 
door.  This should look familiar, as it is the same layout as the 
previous Mako Plant.  Jump the gap, go down the ladders, allow the 
pipes, down the next ladder, (you can save if you want) and across 
the walkway to get to the area where you set the bomb last time.  
Watch as Cloud goes freaky again, sets the bomb and then make your 
way back to long flight of double stairs.  Go up them, ride the 
elevator, get the Ether from the chest and go into the room to the 
left with the three panels.  Working the panels can take a while if 
you don't get your timing right.  Wait a few seconds after Tifa stops 
talking then press O to raise Cloud's arms just before Tifa and 
Barret do.  This should make the door to the right open go through it 
to a Save Point and prepare for the next boss.  Go down the stairs to 
the left then run up the walkway to the T-Junction where Shinra 
soldiers will appear, blocking you in.  Don't worry, you won't have 
to fight them.  President Shinra will appear, talk to you for a while 
then escape on a helicopter, leaving you will a weird, floating 
machine type thing to deal with...

-----Air Buster-----

This boss will separate Cloud from Tifa and Barret, allowing you to 
attack it from both sides.  But this boss will turn to face and 
attack whoever attacks it. This boss is easy if you have been 
levelling up with the guard battles in the sewers.  After you damage 
it enough it will be unable to turn to attack so will just attack 
whoever is behind with a weak machine gun.  It also has a shockwave 
attack that can be quite nasty but fills up Limit gauges.  Also 
whoever has Restore materia can only use it on whoever in on their 
side of the boss, not on the separated ally(ies).  Use Bolt magic and 
Limit Breaks. You will win a Titan Bangle after beating it.

The boss will explode and blow a hole in the walkway, and the bomb 
explosion will send Cloud falling into the slums below.  

-----------------1.5 - MIDGAR SECTOR 5 SLUMS [SL5]-------------------

You will wake up in a church.  Meet and name Aeris after talking to 
her for a while.  Reno (a Turk, a group employed by Shinra) and some 
guards turn up.  Go out the back door, to the right, jump over to the 
stairs, go up them, to the left and jump over the gap.  Aeris will 
fall while trying to escape.  She will be chased by three guards, you 
can choose to make her fight them (a bad idea as Aeris is pretty 
weak), tell her to wait or run.  The best way to do it is to tell her 
to wait, then get Cloud to push the barrels off the roof rafters to 
take out the guards.  The correct order in which to push the barrels 
is left-most at the back, right-most at the back and right-most at 
the front.  If you push the wrong one, Aeris will have to fight the 
guard herself.

After Aeris has got away, she will come up to where Cloud is.  On the 
next screen, go up the rafter that leads out to the roof, (the second 
one) and Cloud and Aeris will talk for a bit. Jump across the roof 
tops and get back to ground level.  Go to the northwest, there is a 
Save Point here, then keep going northwest then north to reach the 
slums.  Go see the guy in the pipe, and you can also buy materia, 
armour and items here. If you are feeling particularly mean, you can 
nick 5 Gil off a sick kid in the top floor of the building on the 
right by looking at the drawer and picking the third option then the 
first option.

Go to the far right to get to Aeris's house.  In the lower level of 
the garden is an Ether and Cover materia.  Go into Aeris's house, 
meet Elmyra, Aeris's mother, answer however you like when Aeris asks 
you a question, then stay the night.  See a flashback in the night 
and when you wake up, check between the bed and desk for a Potion and 
a Phoenix Down.  You need to get downstairs, but you have to walk not 
run, and not touch the walls, if you do Aeris will catch you and make 
you go back to bed.  (you can run when downstairs).  Go outside, and 
keep going to the left, and you'll meet Aeris again. In the next 
screen, go up the brown wooden walkway, along the metal hole filled 
bridge, down the red beam, through the tunnel, round to the left, up 
the wooden pole and down the brown walkway again.  Go up into the 
playground, where Cloud and Aeris will talk again and then when Tifa 
rides past, follow Aeris into the next screen.  Go right and up to 
enter Wall Market.

-----------------------1.6 - WALL MARKET [WM]------------------------

In this part of the game you need to get into Don Corneo's mansion, 
by getting Cloud to dress up as a woman :).  Firstly, go to the right 
to the Honey Bee Inn.  Talk to the grey haired guy outside and choose 
the first option.  Go all the way north to Don Corneo's mansion.  
Talk to the guy outside.  Go back to the first screen and enter the 
clothing shop in the top left, and talk to the woman behind the 
counter.  Go to the second screen and enter the bar on the left 
(where the 'IN' mat is).  Talk to the man sitting on his own at the 
right side of the bar.  To get the best dress, pick the two bottom 
options 'that feels soft' and 'that shimmers'.  Go back to the 
clothing store and see what dress you got, if you picked both bottom 
ones you'll get the Silk Dress; if you chose second, then first 
option, you'll have got the Satin Dress, and if you picked first 
choice then either first or second choice, you'll get the worst 
dress, the Cotton Dress.  Now got to the gym on the right of the 
second screen.  Talk to the person here.  Here, you'll have to do 
squats to compete for the wig.  Don't push the buttons too fast or 
Cloud will get confused and won't be able to keep up.  I suggest you 
practice first. Depending on how many squats you did, depends on what 
wig you get.  If you do more squats than the other guy, you get the 
Blonde Wig.  If you get the same, you'll get a worse wig, and you'll 
get an even worse one of you get less than him.  I'm not sure what 
wig as I've always beaten him and gotten the Blonde Wig.  

You can now return to the clothing store and change into the clothes 
and go to Don Corneo's mansion, but you can also get other items to 
make Cloud more feminine.  If you want the Don to pick Cloud you'll 
need to get the best of the other items, I'll tell you how to get the 
best ones here:

Go back to the first screen, in the top right corner is a hop with a 
guy lazing around in it. Talk to him, then spend a night at the inn.  
In the night, Cloud will get up and examine the vending machine, 
you'll get different items depending on which one you buy from the 
vending machine.  If you buy the one for 50 Gil, you'll get the Glass 
Tiara, if you buy the one for 100 Gil, you'll get the Ruby Tiara and 
if you buy the one for 200 Gil, you'll get the best tiara, the 
Diamond Tiara.

Go to the sushi bar (its the top building in the middle) and buy 
whatever you like for 70 Gil.  When the guy asks you how it was 
answer 'It was all right'.  You'll get a Coupon.  Go to the pharmacy 
(its the middle building in the middle, with the kid outside).  Talk 
to the guy here and exchange the Coupon for an item, for the best 
cologne choose the 'digestive'.  Go back to the bar and give the 
medicine to the guy in the toilet.  In return you'll get the Sexy 
Cologne.

Lastly, talk to the orange guy in white wandering around the bottom 
right of the screen.  You'll get a member's card for the Honey Bee 
Inn.  Talk to the guy at the entrance to get in.  You can listen and 
look through the keyholes of the two rooms on the right, and talk to 
the girls in the room to the north.  You can choose to go in either 
or the two rooms to the left by picking th top option twice.  If you 
choose the top one you'll get the Lingerie, and if you go in the 
bottom one you'll get the Bikini briefs.  Both are good so it doesn't 
matter which one you choose.  If you go in the top one 'The &$#% 
Room', Cloud sees a ghost of himself and goes all freaky, also your 
HP and MP are restored, but they will be full anyway if you slept in 
the inn to get the tiara unless you went outside Wall Market and 
fought.  For going in the top room you get the Lingerie if you talk 
to the girl before she walks away.  If you went into the bottom one 
'The Group Room' you have a bath with Mukki and his buddies, and you 
get the Bikini Pants.

When you're done, go back to the clothing shop, get changed and 
return to Don Corneo's mansion in the far north.  Talk to the guy 
outside and he will let you inside.  After talking the guy here, go 
up the stairs and to the left and down into the basement.  Meet and 
talk to Tifa, then pick up the Ether in the corner by the fire.  Go 
back upstairs and go through the middle room to meet the Don.  He 
will pick either Cloud, Tifa or Aeris.  If you got all the best items 
(the Silk Dress, the Blonde Wig, the Diamond Tiara, the Sexy Cologne 
and either the Bikini Pants or the Lingerie), he will pick Cloud.  He 
will pick Aeris, if you are wearing the Silk Dress, the Blonde Wig, 
the Lingerie and the Sexy Cologne.  He'll pick Tifa in you are 
wearing the Silk Dress, the Blonde Wig and any worse items than the 
ones I mentioned above.

If the Don didn't pick you, and picked either Tifa or Aeris instead, 
you will find yourself in the room that was closed before (on the 
right).  Talk to the guys here and fight them when you reveal 
yourself, then pick up the Phoenix Down by the TV.  When you've 
fought them all (they're pretty easy to beat) go outside.  If Aeris 
was picked, Tifa will be waiting outside.  If Tifa was picked go down 
to the basement and rescue Aeris.  The go back into the Don's room 
and through to the room at the back. 

If the Don picked Cloud, you will end up in the bedroom at the back. 
Look behind the bed for a Hyper and talk to him.  Answer his 
questions however you like and eventually Tifa and Aeris will come in 
and interrogate the Don.  When asked a question, it doesn't matter 
how you answer you will still fall to the sewers below.

----------------------1.7 - MIDGAR SEWERS [MSW]----------------------

Watch the scene at Shinra HQ, and when you wake up you'll find 
yourself in the sewers.  Before talking to Tifa and Aeris, climb up 
the stairs to the south and pick up the Potion.  Now talk to Tifa and 
Aeris.  After a while a boss will attack...

-----Apusu-----

Fire works well on this guy, as does Bolt but to a lesser extent so 
use those as well as the usual Limit Breaks and attacks, this battle 
isn't too tough.  He has a Sewer Tsunami attack that does hit 
everyone but also damages him too, sometimes it will be reverse, as 
in it hits the bad dude first and then your allies, in this case it 
will hurt him more than it will hurt you. If its not in reverse, he 
will jump up and down a bit before casting it. You only get a measly 
Phoenix Down when you win. 

Climb up the ladder and head south and right along the walkway.  
Climb down the ladder here and go across and up the stairs on the 
other side.  Pick up the yellow Steal materia and go down the hatch, 
by picking the top option.  Go south and down the stairs.  You might 
want to push Select to see where to go up on the other side as it is 
kind of hard to see.  Go up the ladder to the right to get up into 
the Train Graveyard.

----------------1.8 - TRAIN GRAVEYARD/PLATE SUPPORT [TRG]------------

You can save at the Save Point if you like.  Go into the nearby train 
by going up the wooden platform, and examine the oil drum to get a 
Hi-Potion.  Go back to where the Save Point and climb up the ladder 
to get the Hi-Potion on top.  Keep going along the top of this train 
until Cloud jumps up onto the white platform, go down to the ground 
and examine the oil drum to the north to get an Echo Screen.  Go in 
between the train on which the white platform is resting and the 
trains at the top, and enter the train to get a Potion.  Go south and 
exit the train, then go up the ladder and down the ladder the other 
side.  Go through the lit up train and pick up a Potion before going 
north to enter the next screen.

Go north and circle around the train then go south to pick up a 
Potion in the corner, circle around the next train car to examine the 
oil drum and get an Ether.  Go north and east from here to the train 
cars that you can move (they look brighter and grainier than the 
background cars).  Get into the horizontal train by entering the door 
on the right.  This will move the vertical train out of the way.  Go 
east and north.  Go up the ladder onto the train and pick up a Hi -
Potion.  Go back down to the ground and enter the train to the north.  
Climb back on top of the train and jump over to the train you've just 
moved.  Run along the white platform, down the ladder and go west to 
the train station and keep going west, until you meet the people 
here, you can buy items from one of the guys here.  You can save the 
game, then go up the stairs.

You can talk to the AVALANCHE members, Biggs and Jessie, who you meet 
on the way up.  Continue up the stairs, until you meet Barret at the 
top.  You've got a boss battle coming up so prepare yourself when 
prompted.  Barret will join you for the battle...

-----Reno-----

Fire works well on Reno.  He can use a Pyramid attack on one of your 
allies, if he gets this on all three, it's game over.  But to break 
it, just get an ally to attack the imprisoned member, it won't damage 
them.  He also has a attack called Electro-mag rod, which can 
sometimes paralyse the recipient, but it will wear off quite quickly. 
Use magic and Limit Breaks to beat him.  When you have inflicted 
enough damage he will run off and you will get an Ether.

After Reno runs away, Tifa and Cloud will try to fiddle with the 
bomb, then Tseng will turn up with Aeris.  Wait till Barret finds the 
wire and you will escape.  Once the support blows up, you will end up 
in the playground near Wall Market.  Cloud, Tifa and Barret talk for 
a while, then, when you can control Cloud again, go south until Tifa 
and Barret join you, then go back to the previous screen and pick up 
the yellow Sense materia in the corner.  Return to Aeris's house in 
Sector 5.   Talk to Elmyra and learn more about Aeris.  Go upstairs, 
talk to Barret and Marlene, answer however you want and you can go to 
the room next door to sleep.  Go outside and return to Wall Market.

--------------------1.9 - UP TO THE PLATE [PLT]----------------------

You can buy materia from the guy in the shop in the top right, but 
there's isn't anything new.  You can't get back in the Honey Bee Inn 
either.  You can go back to Don Corneo's mansion and pick up any 
items you didn't get before, and free a guy in the basement.  Go to 
the second screen and enter the building on the right.  Talk to the 
guy on the left and buy three batteries for 300 Gil, you'll need 
them.  You can buy weapons from the guy on the right.  Go north a bit 
from here, and you will see some kids run to the right.  Follow them 
and talk to the kid by the wire. Climb up it after talking to Tifa 
and Barret.  Go up the wire until you jump off.  Go south and east 
towards the yellow object to the right.  Put a battery in it.  Head 
up after the propeller has stopped spinning.  Jump down onto the 
track by pressing O.  Put another battery in the box and climb up the 
barrier.  Climb up the wire.  You'll come to a swinging bar, you need 
to press O at the right time to make the jump.  It might take a few 
tries.  Try to jump just as the end of the bar hits the dangling wire 
you climbed up and as the squeaking noise is stopping.  Once you've 
made it go north to the next screen.  Climb up the wire you are on 
until it goes up then down, follow it to drop down.  Put the last 
battery in the box to get an Ether.  Go down a screen and jump onto 
the bar again.  When you get to the next screen again,  just continue 
up, instead of dropping down, go up, then climb down onto the large 
wire and continue up.

---------------------1.10 - SHINRA HEADQUARTERS [SHQ]----------------

There are two ways of entering the Shinra HQ.  You can either go to 
the left and up to climb up the stairs all the way to the top which 
takes aaaaaaaaaages, but you don't have to fight anyone and you can 
pick up an Elixer.  Or you can do through the front door and go up 
the lifts to the north of the second floor.  But you have to fight 
guards on the way up.  I personally prefer going up the lifts as it's 
quicker and you can get EXP for your characters at the same time, and 
you get to see a FMV of some of Shinra Motor Mobiles (talk to the 
people by the TV), if you enter the room called 'Accessories' on the 
second floor. You can buy items from the woman in here.  If you go up 
the lifts, you will ned to press the panel again to continue upwards.  
But it's up to you, whatever route you take you will end up on the 
59th floor.  Go to the south to enter a battle with some more guards.  
After the battle, you will pick up the Keycard 60, which will get to 
the 60th floor.  Go into the lift and rife up to the 60th floor, talk 
to your friends on the way up.  When you arrive, go off the screen 
and go left, avoiding the guards ahead of you, and into the office.  

What you need to do next is to hide behind the gold statues and make 
your way right.  Run when the guards are turning not staying still, 
and pause behind each statue before moving again..  When you get to 
the middle, you'll need to signal Tifa and Barret across, do so when 
the guards are moving like when Cloud crossed.  The guards on the far 
right move faster, so you need to run as soon as they turn.  Again 
signal Tifa and Barret across when Cloud get to the far right.  If 
you are caught by the guards at any point, you will have to fight 
them and then start back at the office.  When you've got all the way 
across go up the stairs.

On the next floor, talk to the people here, and one guy will present 
you with an option, answer '.......', and he'll assume you're a 
repairman , and give you the Keycard 62, allowing you up to the 62nd 
floor.  Go into the lift and go up to the 62nd floor.  You'll meet 
the Mayor of Midgar here, and if you guess his password right, he'll 
give you an Elemental materia, but only if you guess right on the 
first go.  I think there's hints in the libraries and you can buy 
hints off the guy outside (Hart), but I don't think it's worth it.

You can now go to the 63rd, 64th and 65th floors, there is a Save 
Point on the 64th floor, which you may want to use before attempting 
the 63rd floor.  Also on the 64th floor, check the lockers at the 
back to get a Phoenix Down and an Ether.  You can't take the 
megaphone yet.  You can rest in the room with the Save Point too.

On the 63rd floor, there are three coupons which can be exchanged for 
items, and you can only open three doors at a time, before reseting.  
To get all the items first activate the computer.  Then go out the 
door, and go up to the top of the screen and open the door on the 
right, on the last row of gates.  Keep going right until you come to 
a door facing right, and one facing south.  Open the south facing 
door.  Go through and head left and go through the door with the red 
light.  Pick up  'A Coupon'.  Go into the air duct, (the black box 
thing to the right).  Once inside go south and head right.  Go up the 
walkway not right at the junction, drop down and get 'B Coupon'.  Go 
out of the red light door and go left.  Open the door here and go 
inside to get 'C Coupon'.  Go back into the air duct in the room with 
the 'B Coupon' and now go right to drop down in the room with the 
computer.  Activate the computer , and pick the bottom option to 
exchange your coupons.  For 'A Coupon' you get the Star Pendent, for 
the 'B Coupon' you get the Four Slots Braclet and for the 'C Coupon' 
you get an All materia.

Either go back to the 64th floor to save again, or continue to the 
65th floor.  On the 65th floor, you have to open various chests to 
get pieces to fit into the model of Midgar, eventually resulting in 
getting another Keycard.  Be careful, for some odd reason there are 
random battles on this floor, although they are very random.  Firstly 
go into the room to the north with the model in.  You can examine it 
if you want.  Go out and go into the room on the top left.  Examine 
the chest at the bottom to get Midgar Parts.  Go back to the model 
and examine it in a counter-clockwise way until an option appears to 
place the parts in the model.  Go back to the top left room and open 
the other chest, return to the model and place the parts.  Go to the 
bottom left room and open the left chest and return and place the 
parts.  Go back to the lower left room and open the other chest.  
Place the parts and go to the room in the upper right, open the chest 
here and go back to the model.  Finally go to the middle right room 
and pick up the Keycard 66, to get to the 66th floor.

You can either go up the stairs or go back to the lift.  Either way 
go to the toilets to the left of the floor.  Choose the middle option 
when it appears, to climb into the ventilation shaft above the 
conference room.  Move towards the screen and listen to what the 
Shinra executives are talking about.  When they are done, go back the 
way you came and go towards the stairs.  Follow Hojo to the 67th 
floor (nice and convenient that the door stays open as you don't have 
the Keycard to open it yourself).  Go to the left and into the area 
with lots of boxes.  When Cloud goes freaky, look into the purple 
chamber and go north through the boxes.  Pick up the Poison materia 
in the chest and save your game as you've got a boss coming.  Go into 
the lift to the next floor.  Talk to Hojo and free Aeris.  Watch as 
Hojo is attacked and choose who you want to look after Aeris, choose 
whoever you don't intend on fighting with.  Name Red XIII, who will 
replace whoever you chose to protect Aeris, and fight the boss...

-----Sample HO512-----

Use Fire and Bolt, as well as Limit Breaks on the big guy, don't 
bother about the little things, they die when the big one does.  Red 
XIII has Fire already equipped so have him cast that.  Don't use Ice 
or Bio.  This guy likes to poison you characters alot. But if you 
cure yourself, he'll probably just poison you again, so save your 
Antidotes and just Cure every now and then.  I think you'll get a 
Talisman when you win.

Pick up the Enemy Skill's materia in the chamber and go left, south 
and up the stairs.  Talk to the guy in grey to get the Keycard 68.  
Pick up the two Potions on the walkway Go to the right and pick up 
two more Potions. Make your way down a floor and go into one of the 
lifts.  You be caught by Rude and Tseng.  You will then be taken to a 
meeting with President Shinra.  Afterwards you'll find yourself in 
the cells to the north of the 67th floor. 

Talk to everyone here, the choose to sleep by walking towards the 
door after talking to Tifa. When you wake up, you'll find the door to 
your cell is open.  Go outside and examine the guard in the corner.  
Return to your cell and talk to Tifa.  Go outside and talk to her 
again.  Go and free Barret and Red XIII.  Follow them and talk to 
everyone here.  Go back to the area with the boxes and talk to Red 
XIII.  Follow him upstairs.  Go right, and north and go up to the 
next floor using the stairs (follow the blood trail).  Go through the 
centre door and save.

Go up the stairs on either side and go right to see that President 
Shinra has been killed.  Listen to what Palmer says, talk to everyone 
and go through the door to the north to get to the roof.  Listen to 
Rufus's speech and then Cloud orders everyone to leave.  On the lower 
floor, Tifa stays behind to wait for Cloud.  Your team is now Barret, 
Red XIII and Aeris.  You can either remove Tifa and Cloud's materia 
or leave it as it is.  I suggest removing it then re-equiping the 
team you have with Bolt, Fire and other magic spells.  Leave your 
Cure materia for Cloud, as you can use Aeris's Limit Breaks to heal.  
Go south and enter the lift.  You will be attacked by a boss...

-----Hundred Gunner-----

In this battle you can only use long range attacks so have Barret 
attack.  You should have equipped Bolt and Fire to your characters so 
use those.  Red XIII and Aeris can't reach, so have them use magic, 
or heal with Limit Breaks in Aeris's case and Potion's otherwise.  
Red XIII can use his Limit Breaks to attack also.  Don't use Bio.  
After you inflict enough damage, the boss will begin to break up, and 
after wards will begin to use more powerful attacks.  After you 
defeat this boss, another will appear....

-----Heli Gunner-----

Use the same tactic as the previous boss, use Thunder, have Barret 
attack and Aeris heal.  You'll win a Mythril Armlet when you win.

After the battle, you'll find yourself on the roof again with Cloud, 
you can remove materia from everyone else if you like.  Equip Cure 
and Poison and any other strong magic.  When you are done, press 
Start and Rufus and Cloud will talk for a while, when you and Rufus 
will fight...

-----Rufus-----

Use Bio to poison him, and use Bolt to kill off the Dark Nation 
first.  The Barrier makes your physical attacks not as damaging so 
use magic instead.  Your Limit Break will fill quite quickly so use 
that.  You'll win a Protect Vest and Guard Source when you win.

----------------------------1.11 - ESCAPE [ESC]----------------------

Go downstairs and save.  Talk to Tifa.  You will switch back to 
controlling Aeris so try to go out the front door, to find you're 
surrounded.  You will talk for a while, then watch the kick-ass FMV.  
Afterwards you'll play a mini-game in which Cloud must protect the 
van by swiping the oncoming motorbikes with his sword.  Press Square 
to attack left and O to attack right.  Before starting, form your 
party and equip yourself with Bolt, Ice and Cure/All materia.  During 
the mini-game there is a gauge showing how much health everyone has, 
as the van gets attacked their HP will go down.  At the end of the 
mini-game you'll fight at large machine boss...

-----Motor Ball-----

This boss with get the first attack from behind, but if at the start 
of the battle you hold L1 and R1 as if trying to escape you will turn 
around at the back attack won't be a back attack any more so you will 
take less damage.  Also your characters will only have as much health 
as they had left after being attacked in the mini-game.  If a 
character was killed in the mini-game they will start this battle 
with 1 HP, and as the boss gets the first attack, they will need to 
be revived.  Use Bolt and Ice on the boss, and be careful of it's 
flame attacks (Twin Burner) if you are at a low level, so have 
someone with Cure/All to heal your party.

After the battle, your characters will talk for a while, you'll find 
yourself at a screen you could have seen but not accessed if you went 
south from Aeris's church.  Talk to everyone here and go south to 
enter the world map.  You can now save anywhere on the World Map.  
You can either fight around here to level up, which I suggest or go 
straight to Kalm.  Head east from Midgar and you should see a town 
nearby.  Enter.  You can buy materia, weapons and items here.  When 
your done, go into the inn.

---------------------------1.12 - KALM [KLM]-------------------------

Talk to the receptionist, and then go upstairs to meet your friends.  
Talk to them to here Cloud talk about his past in flashbacks.  You'll 
find yourself in the back of a truck with other Shinra soldiers and 
Sephiroth.  He and Cloud will talk for a while, then you will be 
attacked by a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge dragon.  Don't worry if Cloud dies, 
Sephiroth can kill it in two hits.  After the battle, the scene will 
switch back to Kalm, then return to Nibelhiem.  Talk to the guards 
and then Sephiroth.  Go north.  When Sephiroth leaves you can talk to 
the guard and the kid.  You can visit Cloud's house on the right and 
Tifa's house next to his (has double doors).  Go to her room and 
Cloud will play a tune on her piano if you choose the bottom option.  
You need to play this tune when you visit Nibelhiem later to get 
Tifa's Level 4 Limit Break Manual.  When you are done looking around 
go back to the inn.  Talk to Sephiroth twice and pick the bottom 
option.  In the morning talk to Sephiroth and you'll have your 
picture taken with Sephiroth and Tifa.  You'll then make your way up 
to the Mt.Nibel reactor.  Cross the bridge and talk to Tifa.  After 
falling, go north east into the cave.  Keep heading north.  You'll 
come to a Mako fountain, you will talk here for a bit, then 
eventually arrive at the Mako Plant.  Go up the stairs.  Once in the 
plant, go across the wires and down the chains.  Follow Sephiroth 
into the chamber room.  Talk to him and examine the chamber to the 
left at the bottom.  Talk to Sephiroth again to look inside the 
chamber.  After Sephiroth goes craaaaaaaazy and the monster breaks 
out, the scene will switch back to Kalm.  You can choose to save your 
game or continue.  Choose whatever you like and then Cloud will 
continue.  Back in Nibelhiem, Cloud will enter the mansion.  Go up 
the stairs, and right.  Talk to the guard and go through the door in 
the corner and down the spiral stair way.  Go south and right to the 
library and talk to Sephiroth.  Leave after he is done.  After Cloud 
wakes up go back to the library.  Talk to Sephiroth and return to the 
town.  Talk to Zangan and enter Cloud's house.  Watch the really cool 
FMV and  you'll find yourself back in the Mako Plant.  Make your way 
to the chamber room.  Examine Tifa to move her out the way then go 
into the room Sephiroth went into to see another cool FMV.  After 
Cloud challenges Sephiroth, the scene will cut back to Kalm.  After 
you leave the inn, you can go get an Ether in the house next the inn 
(its behind the door under the stairs) and another Ether in the chest 
on the second floor of the house next to the previous house (in the 
cupboard).  There's also a Peacemaker gun in the thrid house along,  
up the curving stairs to the north.  Also in this house, in the 
cupboard next to the girl on the second floor (go up the other 
stairs) is a Guard Source.  There's another Ether under the stairs of 
the house on the right side of the town.

When you've got everything exit the town and keep going east until 
you come across some lighter grass and enter Chocobo Farm.

-----------------------1.13 - CHOCOBO FARM [CHO1]--------------------

When you enter the farm, there is a Chocobo standing next to the pen 
fence.  Talk to it and reply 'Wark' and the Chocobo's will dance :).  
Afterwards you'll recieve the Choco/Mog materia.  Go into the house 
on the left and talk to the guy here.  You can rest in the room with 
the beds fro 100 Gil.  Go into the barn on the right and talk to the 
kid in here (Choco Billy).  From him, you can learn how to catch a 
Chocobo, but eventually you will need to pick the bottom option and 
buy a Chocobo Lure off him for 2000 Gil.  You should probably buy 
some Greens off him as well.  Go out of the farm and equip someone 
with the Chocobo Lure.  There are Chocobo tracks outside the farm on 
the lighter grass.  Catch a chocobo by wandering around on the tracks 
until you enter a battle with a Chocobo and other enemies.  You must 
never attack the Chocobo or it will run away so don't attack with 
magic paired with All.  You will need to kill the enemies quickly or 
the Chocobo will get scared and run off.  If you bought Greens you 
should throw them to the Chocobo by selecting them off the Item list.  
This will distract them while you attack the enemies.  When you have 
killed all the enemies and the Chocobo is still there, you will have 
caught the Chocobo.  After the battle you will be riding the Chocobo 
on the World Map.

There is a marsh near the Chocobo farm, look around with the camera 
to see it, it looks grey and green.  Use the Chocobo to cross the 
marsh and avoid the large snake in the marsh, the Midgar Zolem.  If 
the snake does touch your Chocobo you will have to fight it.  I 
strongly suggest trying to avoid the snake as it is very tough at 
this stage in the game.  If you really want to fight it here's a 
strategy for it (but you have to cross with a Chocobo first: 

As soon as you leave Kalm, make a group with Cloud, Aeris and Barret. 
Go to Chocobo Farm and get the Chocobo Lure Materia with Choco Billy. 
Leave the Farm, capture a wild chocobo and cross the swamp, but don't 
touch the Snake. Enter Mithryl Cave and go to a room to the right, 
where you find a enemy called Ark Dragon. You can steal some Ether 
from it, which is very rare at the beginning of the game, and they 
are worth plenty of money if you want to sell them. This enemy has a 
attack called Flame Thrower, which can be learned, and the best, 
makes your Limit Break gauge fill up as crazy, being easier to gain 
more Limits this way. Fight until you reach level 20-25, and have the 
Limit Break Lv. 3 of Cloud, Aeris and Barret at full. Save the game, 
and go face the Midgar Zolom.  Leave the Enemy Skill Materia with 
Aeris, and the first attack should be made by Cloud or Barret. When 
the monster removes one of your characters from the battle, use 
Aeris' Limit Break Planet Protector, which will make your group 
invincible. When the monster is very weak, It will use Beta, which 
can be learned. After learning the magic, discharge Cloud's Meteorain 
or Barret's Ungarmax, this should finish with the Midgar Zolom. Now 
you've defeated the strongest monster until this point, and got Beta, 
one of the strongest magic in the whole game. 

From Maurico (mauricio.castro@power.alstom.com)
 
Either way you will get to the other side of the marsh; ride into the 
cave on your Chocobo, you will see a large snake on a spike.  Go 
north, dismount and enter the cave.

------------------1.14 - MYTHRIL MINE/FORT CONDOR [MMFC]-------------

Head north east onto another screen. Go up the steps and pick up the 
Ether to the right and the Tent in the chest.  Climb up the brown 
vine on the left hand side.  Pick up the pink Long Range materia.  Go 
back down the vine and go back to the entrance.  Go east and south 
under the arch.  Go right to a chest with a Mind Source in.  Go back 
to the arch and go left and up to the next screen.  You meet the 
Turks, Rude, Elena and Tseng.  When they leave go north, not up the 
vines.  Get the Elixer in the chest and the Hi-Potion on the floor.  
Go back to where you meet the Turks, climb up the vines and go out 
the door.

You'll be back on the World Map. Go forward to see an area of brown 
land.  Keep going and you'll see a structure will a golden bird on 
top.  This is Fort Condor.  Talk to the man here.  He'll tell you 
where Junon is, and if you choose the bottom option, he'll let you 
inside.  You can rest and save in the room to the right (go down the 
rope) and to the north east there are Materia and Item shops 
(although there's nothing new).  Talk to everyone but I don't think 
you should give loads of money to these people as you should save it 
for weapons and such, as you don't need to go here to continue in 
your quest.  To use the Materia and Item shops you need to talk to 
the man at the table and say you will help them, if you don't the 
people won't sell you anything.  When you are done return to the 
World Map.

Head towards the forests to the north-west(You can also fight Yuffie 
in these forests - See Side Quests).  Go through them towards a brown 
hill near the coast.  There is a big gun sticking out towards the 
sea.  This is Junon, enter it.

--------------------------1.15 - JUNON [JUN1]------------------------

Talk to the people here then make your way left and go down the 
stairs.  Meet Priscilla and Mr. Dolphin :).  After talking to her, 
you will be attacked by a flying boss...

----Bottomswell----

Use Bolt, Bio and Fire magic attacks.  Some characters can't attack 
it so have them cast magic instead.  This boss can put a bubble on a 
character that slowly reduces their HP.  To destroy the bubble you 
must cast a magic spell on it.  If you have a magic spell linked with 
All, you can attack the boss and the bubble at the same time.  You 
should keep your HP up as this boss can create a wave attack (Big 
Wave) before it dies.

After killing the boss, you will need to revive Priscilla by using 
mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.  Fill your lungs by pressing Square and 
when the marker gets to the top of the lung symbol press Square again 
to breathe into Priscilla.  It will take a few tries.  Go into the 
house near the entrance on the left.  Talk to the woman in front of 
the door.  Choose the bottom option to rest.  Cloud will have a 
freaky dream and when you wake up go outside to meet with your 
friends.  Talk to them then go up the set of wooden stairs.  You find 
that Priscilla is OK, and she will give you the Shiva materia in 
return for saving her life.  Follow her back to the beach.  Talk to 
her and you'll have to get the dolphin to jump you up to the tower, 
by calling it with Square.  If you choose the middle option and don't 
move, just press Square where you are, the dolphin will launch you 
but you will miss.  However if you call the dolphin again, you will 
be deposited in just the right place.  Go to the left and climb up 
the wire.  You will see a cutscene of the Highwind.  Once up top, go 
south, towards the screen.  Go left and down, until you get to a 
yellow box.  Examine it and it will take you down to the next floor.  
Go south through the arch.  You will be in hallway, some soldiers 
will run past and an officer will spot you and make you change into a 
Shinra uniform.  Go into the room to the north and examine the locker 
at the end.  Choose to change, and some guards will come in.  They 
will show you how to march, choose the bottom option to stop them.  
There is a Save Point in the corridor to the right.  I suggest you 
save.  Follow the soldiers when you are done.  Watch the FMV of 
Junon.  In the next event, you will need to sneak into the row of 
soldiers and march with them.  You will also need to move your gun 
with O in time with the other soldiers.  Depending on how high the TV 
ratings were will depend on what you will get at the end.  You will 
end up marching with the other soldiers in front of Rufus and 
Heidegger.  When they leave you will find out Sephiroth has been here 
and you will find yourself in the locker room.  You will practise the 
next event and choose the bottom option when you are done.  Now you 
can look around Junon and buy various weapons, items materia etc from 
the shops here.  In the last building on the left, in the basement, 
(talk to the guy to the right on the first floor) there is a room 
where you can learn about various parts of the game in more detail.  
On the second floor of this building is a 1/35 Soldier and a Mind 
Source.  There is a Luck Source in the room with the kittens.  There 
is a Power Source and a Guard Source on the top floor.  In the other 
side of the town, in the third entrance along there is a Speed Source 
in the room with the lazy soldier.  There's a 1/35 Soldier on the top 
floor.  Go all the way to the far side of town and you will meet up 
with the other soldiers and the officer.  You will now have to 
perform for Rufus, using the various buttons on the controller.  
Listen to the officer and push the relevant buttons.  At the end face 
forward and press any button to perform the final salute.  You will 
receive an item depending on how many points you got.  for 0 - 50 
Points you will get Silver Edge Glasses, for 60 - 90 Points you will 
get a HP Source and for 100 - 190 Points you will get a Force 
Stealer.  After wards, if you try to go out the door you will be 
stopped by Red XIII, and will board the boat.

------------------------1.16 - CARGO SHIP [CSH]---------------------

Go to the left and open the chest to get an Ether, and the All 
materia if you don't have Yuffie, but I think if you do have her, you 
can get to the materia, you might be able to get it if you answer the 
bottom option.  Anyway, talk to everyone here, especially Red XIII on 
the deck :).  A guy in white on the deck, not the one running around 
will sell you Potions and Phoenix Downs and some rejuvenating drink.  
There is a Save Point near Red.  Go back down below and talk to Aeris 
again.  You can now sneak to the front of the ship and check out 
Barret in his sailor suit :)!!.  Talk to him a few times and the 
alarms will sound.  Go back to the main deck area, and you will talk 
to your friends for a bit, then choose you party.  Equip Quake, Fire 
and Ice magic, as well as Shiva and any other good materia you have.  
Save at the Save Point in the northern part of the deck.  Go down 
below and you can now pick up the All materia that Yuffie was 
blocking before.  Go into the door to the north and make your way up 
the ladder to the left and go across the walkway to get a Wind Slash 
from the chest.  Go back down the ladder and talk to the officer in 
red.  You'll find out he's dead, and Sephiroth will appear and summon 
a version of Jenova for you to fight....

-----JENOVA BIRTH----- 

Primarily use Quake, Fire and Ice magic, as well as Limit Breaks.  
This boss has some nasty attacks such as Tail Laser, and W-Laser 
which hits twice (obviously!).  Keep your HP up, and only use 
physical attacks if you are low on MP.  Jenova can cast Stop on a 
character so don't rely on a character too much.  You'll get a White 
Cape when you win.

After the battle you party will talk, and Cloud will try to explain 
the situation.  Your party will leave and the ship will dock at Costa 
de Sol.

-----------------------1.17 - COSTA DE SOL [CDS]---------------------

You will exit the ship and your friends will talk for a while.  When 
they all leave go southeast to the next screen.  The Shinra 
helicopter will show up and Rufus and Heidegger will get out.  They 
will talk for a bit, then the scene will switch back to Cloud.  Go 
over the bridge and down the stairs.  Go all the way right and down 
the stairs to the beach.  You can talk to Hojo here but you won't get 
anything amazingly wonderful out of it.  In the building to the right 
of the bridge, there is a Power Souce and a Motor Drive in the 
basement to the right.  There is also a Fire Ring in the chest.  You 
can meet Mukki in the Bar if you REALLY want to.  Go under the bridge 
to get to the world map.

Go towards the mountains in the southwest.  There's a path running 
through them, go over it.  At the end of the path, you'll see a cave 
to the left.  Go up the path and talk to the guy here.  Go north 
towards the light.  Keep going north until you get to a Mako Reactor.  
Don't go inside just keep going south down the stairs.  Go down the 
train tracks, there's a Save Point here.  At certain points the track 
will break and will you can press O to jump over the gap, don't.  
While falling hold left or right and keep hitting O.  Depending on 
which way you fall you'll get a different item.  If you fall left, 
you'll get a Wizard Staff.  If you fall right you'll get a Star 
Pendant, you don't get anything if you fall in the middle.  You get 
three chances to fall down, so try to get all the items.  There's one 
on the lower track, one on the top to the left and another to the 
right of the gap.  There is a W Machine Gun to the left of the top 
gap and a Turbo Ether and a Transform Materia to the right of the top 
gap.  Go on the top track to the right and on the next screen your 
friends should be on the lower track.  If they're not there you need 
to go back, go down the lower track and call them with the PHS.  Keep 
going right and go inside the shed and choose the top option.  Go 
down a bit until you hear birds chirping and climb up the wall.  
Choose the top option and you'll fight a Cokatolis which is just 
incredibly easy so just attack it and you'll get 10 Phoenix Downs.

Go back the way you came and go down to the lower track and over the 
bridge.  Follow the track.  Go to the left, then down.  Keep going 
left until you come to a cave.  You can get a Tent, Mind Source and a 
Power Source here.  Go back up to the track.  Keep going south along 
the REALLY long bridge.  Eventually you will end up in North Corel.

------------------1.18 - NORTH COREL/GOLD SAUCER [GLD1]--------------

When you enter some people will talk to Barret.  You can buy weapons, 
Materia and items here although they're not very good and you need 
3000 Gil to enter the Gold Saucer which is where you're going next.  
You can stay in the inn to the north.  Go left to Ropeway Station.  
This will take you to the Gold Saucer.  You will talk to your friends 
and learn more about Barret's past before boarding.  When you get to 
the Gold Saucer you'll see a Save Point to the left but you can't use 
unless you have GP.  Talk to the woman at the IN sign and pay 3000 
Gil to enter.  You'll talk to your team for a while.  Talk to one 
person who you want in your team, you can only have one at this 
point.  Go to the Wonder Square and you'll meet Cait Sith.  watch him 
tell your fortune which goes completely wrong apart from the ladt 
reading.  He'll then join your team.  He has two Materia, Manipulate 
and Transform.  Now go to the Battle Square and find the guard's been 
killed.

You'll talk to the woman behind the desk and some guards and Dio will 
show up and accuse you of killing everyone.  You'll run inside the 
Battle Square and will be ambushed by some robots.  Don't worry, you 
won't have to fight them.  You'll be caught then chucked through the 
'Gateway to Heaven' which lands you straight in jail.  You'll find 
Barret and talk to him for a bit.  Go through the gate.

------------------1.19 - COREL PRISON/CHOCOBO RACES [CPR]------------

If you stand still too long a weird freaky man will follow you.  VERY 
annoying.  There's a Save Point and you can talk to people here if 
you want.  Eventually go into the house on the right where the 
strange man will leave you alone (yay!).  Barret will come in and 
everyone else will too.  You'll see a flashback from four years ago 
in which Barret's best friend gets his arm shot off.  Now you have to 
choose your team.  I suggest you save at the Save Point before you 
leave.  You'll notice that the man following you has gone, I think he 
was the one that Barret shot :)  Go north through the gate and then 
go through the other gate to the left.  When you get to the next 
gate, go through the gate to the right to where the man is and keep 
going north or if you get fed up going north go right until you reach 
a line of rocks or a junkyard.  When you get to the line of rocks go 
right.  When you're at the junkyard equip Barret with Restore and 
your best Magic and Summon Materia as you will have to fight with 
only Barret.  Go north and you'll talk to Dyne.  You'll find out he 
was injured and also got a gun grafted onto his arm.  You'll have to 
fight him...  

-----Dyne-----

Let him attack you with his gun as it will make your Limit Bar fill 
up quickly, and use Cure when you have to.  Hit him with your Limit 
Break when it's full and use your best summon (Choco/Mog can paralyze 
him sometimes) to inflict more damage.  He can pull off a big attack 
before dying so keep your HP up.  You'll win a Silver Armlet.  

After Dyne kills himself you'll find yourself back at the prison 
talking to Mr. Coates.  You'll need to win the upcoming Chocobo Race 
to get out of prison.  After you've taken the lift, you can find the 
Summon Ramuh Materia in the corner by the poster.  Talk to Ester when 
she comes and you will participate in the Chocobo Race.

You can either do Automatic or Manual.  If using Manual, hold R1, R2 
and this will make your dash meter regenerate which will let you dash 
(O) more often.  If you can't win on Manual, use Automatic and you 
should win eventually although it's pretty easy to win on Manual.

When you come in first place you'll get a buggy which lets you go 
over shallow rivers.  Come out of the desert bit and you'll see a 
shallow river nearby.  Go over it, and eventually you'll see a black 
structure in a forest.  Get out of the buggy and enter it.  Go 
forward a bit and you'll see the Turks, Reno and Rude.  They'll ttalk 
for a bit and then you'll have to fight Reno and Rude together.  
Answer however you like when they ask you a question and you'll enter 
the battle...

-----Reno and Rude-----

Use your best Summoning and Magic to inflict damage on the Turks.  
You should concentrate your attacks on one or the other as when you 
inflict enough damage on one the other will leave.  You can poison 
them with Bio.  Rude can heal them both, and Reno can inflict more 
damage so decide accordingly.  You'll win a Fairy Tale when you're 
victorious.

Go northeast to the burnt out Mako Reactor.  Scarlet and Tseng will 
arrive and talk about Huge Materia.  When they leave check around the 
edge of the reactor and when an option appears choose the bottom one 
to get the Titan Materia.  Go back to where you met Reno and Rude and 
go west.  Keep going west at the junction to get Deathblow Materia.  
If you keep going down this pathway you'll end up in the world map so 
go back to the junction, not the one where you found the Turks, and 
head north.  You'll reach Gongaga Town.

-----------------1.20 - GONGAGA TOWN/COSMO CANYON [CC]---------------

You can buy Materia, accessories and items in various buildings.  
There's also an inn with an X-Potion in a chest.  In the building to 
the far north there is a White M-Phone in a chest.  Go into the 
building in the far south to hear about a guy named Zack.  Leave the 
town and go back to the world map.  Get in the buggy and go around 
the forest and over the shallow river until you see some red 
mountains and the sky will darken.  Your buggy will breakdown and 
you'll be forced to go into the building in the mountains which is 
Cosmo Canyon.  Then talk to the guy.  If Red is in your team he'll 
come out and show himself, if not he'll run up the stairs.  There is 
an inn and various shops such as a weapons and item shop.    If you 
come back to Cosmo Canyon in Disc 2 or 3 and enter the item shop the 
red cord will be gone and you can pick up a Full Cure Materia, Magic 
Source and Elixir.  Make your way up the stairs to the left and talk 
to Red.  Go up the stairs and there's a Save Point here.  Go up the 
stairs and left, go up the outside stairs and into the cave.  Climb 
up the ladder to Bugenhagen's observatory (go through the door to the 
left, press Select if you can't see the door).  Talk to Red XIII and 
Bugenhagen for a while.  You will need to make a new party, so go 
talk to whoever you want in your party, they will be in various 
loactions in Cosmo Canyon.  When you have your party go back to the 
observatory.  You will see a short cutscene, where you can learn 
about the Planet and the Lifestream.  

When it is over, return to the bonfire to meet with your friends.  
Talk to everyone here.  Eventually Bugenhagen will come and talk to 
Red XIII.  You will need to take one other person with you as you 
have to take Red XIII.  Go up to the top level , where the ladder was 
to enter the observatory.  Talk to Bugenhagen and he will open the 
door.  Go through the door and climb down the ladders and ropes until 
you get to the bottom where you should head right.  There are caves 
in here that if you go inside you will be given an option.  Ignore 
the first two caves unless you want to fight the enemies that are 
inside (if you choose the top option).  Go to the cave to the north 
east and go inside. Pick the top option.  A new door will appear.  Go 
through it.

Go north and west.  There is oil on the floor.  Don't run on it as 
you will go sliding into a spiked wall, reducing everyone's HP by 
500.  Just walk on it instead.  Go south from where the oil is to get 
to the previous screen and pick up the Added Effect materia.  Return 
to the other screen and go right and up, and then left and down the 
stairs to get a Black M-Phone.  Go back up and through the arch and 
get the Ether in the chest.  Go up the stairs and head north.  Go to 
the next screen and go through the tunnel fourth from the left.  If 
you hit the spider web, you will be attacked by a large spider, they 
are pretty easy to beat, although their Sting Bomb attack can take 
off quite a bit of health and you have to fight them to continue.  At 
the end you will get a X-Potion in the chest.  Go back and go through 
the second tunnel to the right, and fight the spiders.  If you run 
against the left side wall before the door you will go through a 
secret passageway and pick up the Turbo Ether in the chest.  Go back 
through the passageway and go through the door at the top.  You will 
talk for a bit, and then the statue will start to move and you will 
fight a boss....

-----Gi Nattak-----

There is a very easy way to kill this boss. As it is undead, curing 
items will hurt it so simply use an X-Potion to kill it in one go.  
But if you don't wanna do that, just use Summon materia and Limit 
Breaks on the main guy, don't worry about the fire guardians that he 
has with him.  You can also use Ice and Bolt magic.  You will win a 
Wizer Staff when you kill him.

Pick up the Gravity materia on the ground and follow Red XIII to the 
next screen.  You will learn about Red's father here, and you will be 
back at bonfire.  Make a new party and try to leave.  Red XIII will 
come and join you again.  Leave Cosmo Canyon and get in the buggy 
which is now fixed.  Go past Cosmo Canyon and go over the shallow 
river and you should see some spiky mountains in the distance.  Get 
out of the buggy and enter the town of Nibelhiem.

--------------------------1.21 - NIBELHIEM [NIB1]--------------------

When you enter the town, Cloud will see that Nibelhiem has seemingly 
been rebuilt, despite that he remembers it being burnt down.  Firstly 
go into the inn, and enter the room at the back on the first floor.  
Talk to the black creature here to get a Luck Source.  In the 
building to the right of the inn is an item shop, and another black 
creature with an Elixer in the furnace room.  Go to Tifa's house, and 
get the Turbo Ether off the creature at the back of the room on the 
first floor.  You can play on the piano in Tifa's room if you like, 
and read the letter on Tifa's desk as well.  In the building to the 
right of Tifa's house on the top floor you can get a Luck Source from 
the creatures in the attic.

When you have got all the items, go into the mansion.  You can get 
Vincent now if you want (See Side Quests).  There is an Enemy 
Launcher in the chest near the room with the safe in, and if you go 
through the northern door, under the stairs there is a Twin Viper in 
the room to the right and up.  Go to the right of the top of the 
stairs to get a Magic Source in the chest in the room to the north.  
Eventually make your way down to the basement.  Go towards the back 
room and you'll meet Sephiroth again.  He will talk of the Reunion 
and when he leaves, he will throw the Destruct materia at you.  Pick 
it up and leave the mansion.  Go north to leave to the world map.

-------------------------1.22 - MT. NIBEL [NIB2]---------------------

Go north through the mountains until you enter the mountain path up 
to Mt.Nibel.  You should remember this place from Cloud's flashback.  
Follow the path until it splits.  Take the north spiralling path to 
get a Rune Blade.  Go back to the path and continue following it.  
Before the bridge, you can follow the other path to eventually get a 
Platinum Barretta.  Go back to the bridge and cross it.  You'll come 
to a set of tunnels, go down the ladder and free the ladder that is 
folded.  Go back up and go down the tunnel numbered '2'.  At the end 
is a Powersoul.  Jump off the ledge and use the Save Point if you 
like.  Climb back up to the top where the tunnels start and now go 
down the one numbered '4'.  You'll get an All materia in the chest 
here.  You can now fight the boss, or go out the passageway next to 
the boss, and follow the path to go outside, then drop down to the 
lower ledge and enter the cave and take the right hand path.  Work 
your way south west and go through the small hole.  Go up, left then 
down to get to a chest with an Elixer in.  Go out the exit to get to 
a wooded area.  There is an Elemental materia on the ground to the 
left.  Keep going north, then right, up as far as you can go, then 
left to get a Sniper CR.  Go back and take the right most passage, 
this goes south and leads you outside.  From here go left until you 
get to the Mako Plant in Cloud's flashback.  Go past it to the door 
set in the rock face.  This will lead you back to the area with the 
tunnels.  Head to the bottom and examine the blue bird-like creature 
to enter the boss battle...

-----Materia Keeper-----

This boss can use an attack called Trine, so you should learn it if 
you have Enemy Skill materia equipped.  You should Haste to start off 
and make sure you have Cure/All equipped.  The boss can heal himself 
too.  Try to use physical attacks and save the MP's to cure yourself.  
You can poison it as well.  Just stick to Limit Breaks and physical 
attacks, you can use Summons as well to inflict more damage.  You'll 
get a Jem Ring when you win.

Pick up the Counter materia that's left behind and go down the path 
that the boss was blocking.  Follow it until you reach the World Map.  
Circle around the mountain until you see a town in the distance.  
Make your way towards it.

--------------------------1.23 - ROCKET TOWN [RT]--------------------

There is a weapon shop on the left and an inn on the right when you 
enter.  There is a Power Source in the room to the bottom right.  If 
you talk to the old guy a few times and choose the top option to look 
at the rocket, he will give you the Yoshiyuki.  Be sure to get the 
Barrier materia in the shop next to the old man.  When you have 
bought weapons, rested etc, go into the house to the top right.  
There is a Drill Arm in one of the rooms in a chest.  Go out back to 
see the Tiny Bronco.  Shera will turn up and when she leaves, exit 
the house and go north towards the rocket.  Go over the bridges, up 
the stairs and ladder and go right to enter the rocket.  Talk to the 
guy in here (Cid) and name him.  When options appear, choose any one 
you want buy you will need to ask the top option to continue.  Go 
back to Cid's house when you are done and talk to Shera.  Cid will 
turn up and when he leaves, Shera will explain about what happened 
with the rocket, flashback style.  When the FMV finishes,  Cid will 
come back and Palmer will arrive.  Go outside to find that Rufus 
wants the Tiny Bronco.  Shera will make you go inside and then go out 
back to where the Tiny Bronco is.  You'll find Palmer trying to nick 
it, so talk to him and then you will fight him...

-----Palmer-----

Use Haste/All and Slow Palmer if you have learnt it, or use Choco/Mog 
summon.  His Mako Gun can attack with Ice, Fire and Bolt so watch 
out.  Use good summons and Limit Breaks and Palmer will be run over 
:) in no time.  You'll get an Edincoat when you win.

Your party and Cid will now jump on the Tiny Bronco as it flies away, 
but in it's escape it gets damaged and you will have to make an 
emergency landing in the sea.

You will now use the Tiny Bronco as transport but it can only go in 
shallow water and rivers.  To get out you must land on a beach.  At 
this point in the game you can do a few things, such as Yuffie's side 
quest as Wutai has some good items.  Also go to the northern 
continent and visit the Bone Village in one of the forests on the 
southern part of the continent.  They have some good armlets for sale 
here.

When you want to continue in your journey, go to the area where the 
Gold Saucer is.  You can go through the shallow river on the west 
side of the west continent.  There is a lone house near here.  Go 
inside and talk to the guy here to find you will need a Keystone to 
get into the Temple of the Ancients.  He will tell you Dio from the 
Gold Saucer has it.  Get out the Tiny Bronco and go to North Corel 
and take the ropeway up the Gold Saucer.

-------------------1.24 - GOLD SAUCER REVISITED [GLD2]---------------

Buy a ticket and go to the Battle Square.  Head to the right and go 
into 'Dio's Show Room'.  Examine the Keystone and Dio will turn up.  
Choose the top option and he will offer to give you the Keystone if 
you enter the Battle Square battles.  You will have to fight with 
only Cloud and now matter when you lose or win, you will still get 
the Keystone.  At the end of each battle, you will have to stop a 
slot machine.  This has various effects of you, such as stops you 
using Summon materia, or give you a status change or restore your HP.  
Whatever changes occur, they will stay for all the battles.  When you 
have the Keystone, try to leave the Gold Saucer to find the ropeway 
is broken.  Cait Sith will turn up and you will be at the Hotel.  You 
will talk to your friends a while, then you'll be in your room.

At this point, Cloud will go on a date with someone, it's usually 
Aeris, but it can be Tifa, Yuffie or Barret.  Firstly you'll go to 
the Event Square and as you are the 100th couple, you will take part 
in the play.  Choose any of the options while in the play.  Next you 
will go to the Round Square, and go on the gondola.  When your date 
talks look in a direction to see an FMV.  When you get off, you will 
see Cait Sith wandering around.  You will chase him around.  He will 
go to the Battle Square, then the Speed Square, then the Wonder 
Square.  Go behind the yellow bird to find Cait Sith hiding very 
badly behind it.  He will then go to the Chocobo Square.  Chase him 
outside and see him throw the Keystone to Tseng in the Shinra 
helicopter.  You'll find he has taken Marlene hostage.  You'll find 
yourself back in your room at the Hotel.  Examine the cabinet to get 
an Elixer.  Exit your room to meet with your friends, and then Aeris 
will become a permanent member of your team.  Pick another party 
member and leave the hotel.  Go back to the Station and leave Gold 
Saucer.  Head back to where you left the Tiny Bronco.  Go to the far 
southern continent, by going through the shallow river and going anti 
clockwise around the western continent, and then anti-clockwise 
around the eastern continent.  You should see a brown stair like 
temple surrounded by a forest on one of the islands, go around the 
back of it to reach a beach.  Leave the Tiny Bronco here and enter 
the temple.

-------------------1.25 - TEMPLE OF THE ANCIENTS [ANC1]--------------

Go across the bridge and up the stairs.  Examine the black creature 
at the top of the stairs, then enter.  You will see Tseng here and he 
will give you the Keystone back.  Examine the stone altar in the 
middle to put the Keystone in and enter the temple itself.  

The layout of the temple is pretty confusing so from where you 
entered go up, left, up and down the stairs.  Go into the opening 
above you, right and down the vines.  Go under the stairs to reach a 
chest with a Trident inside.  Keep going right and down the stairs.  
Climb the vines here, go left past the opening (which you can't go 
into yet) and up the stairs nearby.  The old man in blue will run 
away.  Climb up the vines after him and pick up the Mind Source here.  
Go down the stairs and enter the room the man went into.  Get the 
Silver Rifle from the chest and talk to the man.  Talk to him again 
to buy items, rest and save your game.  When you are done, go back 
outside, up the stairs and down the vines.  Now go down.  You arrive 
near a green item, it's a Turbo Ether.  Go down the long set of 
stairs, go left and down the smaller set of stairs.  Go to the left 
again, down the vines and pick up the Rocket Punch in the chest.  
Down the stairs again and up the vines.  Go up the stairs, through 
the arch and down the stairs (go right).  Climb up the vines here.  
Go under the stairs to get the Lucky Plus materia.  Go back down the 
vines, and through the archway.  Down the stairs and to the left.  Go 
through the arches here to get to a room with boulders rolling by.  
To get past them you need to time your movements so that you are in 
the hollow arch when the boulders roll by.  When you get to pool, 
pick up the Morph materia here and continue right.  Once you get to 
the pool, if you get hit by a boulder, you will only have to restart 
at the pool not at the beginning. At the end,  Aeris will go back to 
the pool.  You will talk to her for a while and then you will see a 
flashback of Tseng and Elena looking a wall with murals on.  
Sephiroth shows up, and makes a double of himself (very freaky!).  
Sephiroth's double will descend on the pool, then fly away.  Go to 
the right, and you can rest and save at the old man here.  Go south.

There is a talking clock here, and you need to align it's hands with 
various passageways.  I suggest first pressing Triangle to move the 
hands yourself, then you can make the minute hand move anticlockwise 
with Triangle, and clockwise with O.  You start off at passageway X 
so move the long hand to passageway IIII, and press X.  You'll get 
Aeris's Ultimate Weapon, the Princess Guard in the chest here.  Go 
back to the clock, and keep moving the hand until the hour hand 
reaches passage IIII, which is where you are.  Line the other hand up 
to passage VII and press X.  You'll get the Trumpet Shell here.  Go 
back to the clock, and move the hands so that one is at passage VII 
and one at VIII.  Get the Megalixer in the chest and return to the 
clock.  Now stand on one of the hands and wait for the second hand to 
come round.  It will hit you off the hand you are on, and you will 
arrive in a room with a chest.  Before you can open it, you are 
attacked.  Simply use Demi magic, and Summons if you want.  They 
aren't hard at all, you can even Manipulate them.  You might wanna 
watch out for their Southern Cross attack though.  When you have 
beaten them, you'll get a Turbo Ether.  Get the Nail Bat from the 
chest and head out the door to the south.  You'll be back in the area 
with the vines and stairs, where the passageway is that you couldn't 
go through before.  Make your way back to the clock, and make the 
hands point to where you are and passage VI.  

You'll see another old man here, who will run away with the key to 
the door here.  You need to work out his route and catch him at an 
exit.  First of all, go to the bottom level and pick up the Work 
Glove in the chest.  When you have caught the man, rest and save.  
Make you way back to the top and go through the door.  You'll meet 
Sephiroth and keep going right to see him again.  He'll talk about 
becoming one with the Planet and Meteor.  Cloud will go freaky once 
again, and appear to have his own double.  After he comes to his 
senses you'll hear Sephiroth and be attacked...

-----Red Dragon-----

This dragon can be tough if you are at low levels, but start off by 
Hasting yourself, Slowing the dragon if you can and using Magic 
Barrier if you have it.  Use your best Summon materia, but not Demi 
magic.  Try to use Limit Breaks and phyiscal attacks.  Fire will heal 
this boss so don't use that.  You'll get a Dragon Armlet at the end.  

Pick up the Summon Bahamut materia, and equip it to someone.  Try to 
go out the door to find you're locked it, so go to the right and 
examine the yellow object here.  Choose whatever option, and 
eventually Cait Sith will ring on the PHS.  Choose whatever option 
and then leave the room.  Rest and save with the old guy, then go 
back to the clock room.  You can only go down passage XII, go up to 
the door and you will have to fight another boss......

-----Demon's Gate-----

Haste and Barrier yourself as this guy can inflict quite a lot of 
damage.  Use Bahamut summon as the others don't do much.  His attacks 
fill your Limit Bars quite quickly so use them whenever you have 
them.  Magic doesn't really work so stick to physical attacks.  
You'll win a Gigas Armlet.

Cait Sith will come out the door and talk to you.  He'll then go and 
take the Black Materia.  You'll find yourself outside the temple, 
where the stairs are.  Cloud will go down to collect the Black 
Materia.  Sephiroth will appear and force Cloud to give him the Black 
Materia.  Cloud will move towards Sephiroth, and you will control a 
kid Cloud.  You can talk to the adult Cloud, but it won't stop him.  
Afterwards, Cloud will attack Aeris, and Cait Sith No.2 shows up.  
You other party member will jump down and stop Cloud.  Cloud will 
have what I think is a dream, where Aeris will talk for a while.  
Sephiroth will appear and then you will wake up in Gongaga Town. 
You'll talk to Tifa and Barret a while, then go outside.  You'll now 
have them in your team, and Aeris will be gone, but her weapons, 
armlets, accessories and Materia are in the menu.  You can sell her 
weapons if you want.  When you are done, go out of Gongaga Town.

When you are on the World Map, you'll see the Tiny Bronco on a beach 
nearby (how it got there I don't know!!).  Board it and go to the 
northern continent, by going to the right side of the continent you 
are on and go through the river by Gold Saucer, then around the left 
side and to the north.  Enter the excavator's site (looks like a 
skull and ribs) that is in a forest.

-----1.26 - EXCAVATOR'S SITE (BONE VILLAGE)/SLEEPING FOREST [BV1]----

Firstly, go up the ladder and into the forest at the north.  This is 
the forest in Cloud's dream.  Go north a screen and stand still in 
the middle (go north a bit).  You'll see a red materia appear every 
now and then.  When it appears, try to take it and you'll get the 
Summon Kjata materia.  Go back to the excavator's site, and talk to 
the man by the rib cage.  Pick the top option twice to start a dig 
for the Lunar Harp, which you will need to go through the forest.

Go to the upper ledge and place five diggers in a circle facing the 
smoke, to the southwest of the tent.  When you are done, ignite the 
bomb and place the dig point where the diggers are looking.  The next 
day, check the chest by the entrance and you should find the Lunar 
Harp.  If not, keep trying and replace the dig point.  If you have 
it, go into the forest and head north twice.  The Sleeping Forest 
will awaken and you can now to go north to a rocky area.  Go past the 
red coral and under the tree trunk to get the Water Ring in the 
chest.  Go back to the coral and go up the stairs to the left.  Go 
through the tree trunk and head north.  Go along the curving path and 
head southeast.  You'll be back on the World Map.  Head north and 
enter the round blue object.

--------1.27 - CITY OF THE ANCIENTS (FORGOTTEN CITY) [ANC2]----------

Go north and take the left path.  Go up the path and left into the 
stone building.  There is a Save Point here and a Magic Source in the 
chest.  Leave the building and go east across the bridge.  Go down 
the stairs and right under the arches to get the Aurora Armlet in the 
chest.  Now return to the crossroads and go up the middle path.  Keep 
going north until you reach a spiky building.  Go left then right to 
enter it.  Go all the way up to get the Comet materia here.  Go all 
the way back to the crossroads and take the right path.  Go into the 
first shell house and up the ladder to get the Guard Source form the 
chest.  Now go north and right into the other shell house.  Get the 
Elixer from the chest on the bottom floor and go up the ladder.  
Approach the beds and choose to rest.  When Cloud wakes up, go along 
the beds and check behind the last one to pick up an Enemy Skills 
materia.  Go back to the middle path and go into the spiky building.  
The fish will have gone, so go down the stairs here.  Go down the 
long set of stairs.  Go left out of the building and save at the Save 
Point.  Equip Earth, Titan, Comet, Kjata and Bahamut materia, as well 
as anything else good.  Head down the stairs and across the pillars 
to get to Aeris.  Walk towards her and talk to her.  Cloud will draw 
his sword and talk to her again.  Press O three times.  Watch the 
very cool FMV where Sephiroth appears.  Cloud will get all sad at 
Aeris's death and then Sephiroth will summon another Jenova for you 
to fight to Aeris's music (awwwww)...

-----Jenova LIFE-----

Use Earth, Titan, Comet, Kjata and Bahamut as they work particularly 
well against this boss.  Physical attacks do quite a bit of damage.  
But be careful as Jenova has a nasty attack called Aqua Lung, which 
does about 1,500 HP of damage, but do try to stay alive as it is a 
good enemy skill to learn.  Make use of your Cure/All materia.  Also 
Haste and Barrier are a good idea as well.  You'll win a Wizard 
Bracelet.  

Watch as your party say goodbye to Aeris, then the FMV, and Cloud 
talks for a bit and you can choose to save your game.  And hey, 
that's it, Disc 1, done!!

 ----------------
| DISC TWO [DSC2]|
 ----------------

-------------1.1 - FORGOTTEN CITY/CORRAL VALLEY CAVE [CVC]-----------

You'll start off outside the first shell house, so go down and right.  
You'll see a ghost of Sephiroth heading north east.  Follow him.  You 
might want to rest in the beds in the second shell house before 
leaving.  You'll come to a set of spiky stairs.  Ignore them and go 
behind it and up the rocks to the right to get to a chest with a 
Viper Halberd in.  Go back to the spiky thing and go up it.  Go into 
the black area and spiral around the object and back again when you 
get to the top.  Go left into the Corral Valley Cave.

Walk to the left and go towards the second split in the wall.  Climb 
upwards and choose to go left.  Walk to the left and climb up the 
next split.  Choose to go left again and up.  Keep going up to pick 
up the Bolt Armlet in the chest.  Jump back into the split and go 
down, choose to go right.  Run to the next split and go up then right 
to get the Megalixer in the chest.  Go into the split and go down.  
Jump right, then go back to the split and go down.  Eventually you'll 
jump down and get the HypnoCrown in the chest.  Jump back in and go 
up.  Jump to the right, go back into it and go up.  Jump left, jump 
out, go left and into the split again.  Go up and jump off.  Go to 
the ladder and go down.  At the bottom pick up the Magic Plus 
materia.  Walk towards the ladder and Cloud will climb it again.  
When he jumps off, walk towards it again and choose to go up.  When 
you jump off, go right and through the opening.  Pick up the Power 
Source in the chest, and go north.  You'll be back on the World Map.  
Go left from the cave until you reach the coast.  If facing the 
water, go right.  You'll see some Chocobo tracks in the snow if 
you're going the right way.  Now go right and you'll eventually see a 
village.  Save before you enter.

------------------------2.2 - ICICILE INN [IIN]----------------------

There is a weapon shop to the left, and an inn on the top right.  On 
the top floor of the inn, by the window is a X-Potion.  Go into the 
room next to the snowman and go into the room to the north.  There 
are a Hero Drink and a Vaccine here.  Also take the map that's on the 
wall of this room.  You can go into the building next to the weapon 
shop to see some videos about Aeris's parents, the Ancients, Jenova 
and WEAPON.  Also after watching them go down the stairs and take the 
Turbo Ether.  Finally go and talk to the man in the far north of 
town.  Pick the top option and Elena and some guards will turn up.  
She will talk to Cloud, and when the transparent box appears, press 
left and she will miss and go rolling past.  If she does hit you, you 
will be knocked out and end up on the bed in the room with the 
videos.  

Go into the house in the middle of the town and talk to the little 
boy, twice.  He'll give you his snowboard.  Take it and go to the 
north of the town again.  Go right and you'll start a snowboard mini-
game.  Press square to brake, X to jump, Start to pause, Left/Right 
to move, and L1/R1 to quick turn to left/right.  Collecting balloons 
won't go anything, so keep to the left and take the left path twice.  
If you took the left path twice, you'll end up in a forest area.  

-----------------------2.3 - GREAT GLACIER [GG]----------------------

From the forest, go right. Keep going right until you see an area by 
a lake.  Run along the coast until you can walk on the ice.  Pick up 
the Potion and go northwest.  You'll come to an area with lots of 
little icebergs.  You need to cross them so pick the top option.  The 
icebergs will change when you jump on one surrounding it.  If they 
are raised they will submerge, if they are submerged they will raise.  
If you surrounded by submerged icebergs you will sink and have to 
start again.  To get across you need to make sure going to jump on 
one that is surrounded by raised icebergs because if you do they will 
submerge when you jump and you will sink.

When you make it to the other side go north into the cave.  Pick up 
the Safety Bit inside and go back past the icebergs and head to the 
exit in the right corner, pressing Select might help.  Go right at 
the tree and keep heading north east.  At the next area, there is a 
path to the top left, bottom left (where you should be), one to the 
bottom right and one to the top right.  Take the path to the top 
right.  Go to the top left and on the second screen of this there 
should be a blue Added Cut materia on the path, it's kinda hard to 
see.  When you have it go to the top left again.  On the next screen, 
with some steaming lakes, run towards the water to the left.  When an 
option appears choose the top option.  Keep going to the north west.  
Then go left.  You'll be on a vast snowfield.  You should place 
markers with O to plot your course.  Go north and mark your course.  
The wind can blow you around, so use the markers to make sure you are 
always going in a straight line north.  You should come to a cave.  
There is an All materia in the tent.  Get it and return to the 
snowfield.  Keep going north to arrive at a shack.  Enter it and talk 
to the man here to rest and save.  Leave the shack and your friends 
will be outside.  Talk to them and head south back to the snowfield.  
Go south until you get to the cave.  Don't enter but now go east.  
Keep going east until you get to a new area.  Head south and east to 
get to a cave.  Cure yourself, and talk to the person here.  You'll 
fight a boss...

-----Snow-----

Basically stick to Fire attacks, as Ice will heal her.  Bahamut and 
Ifrit should do it.  She attacks with Cold Breath, Ice2 and 
Fascination that confuses whoever it hits.  

After the battle, you can pick up the Summon Alexander materia left 
behind.  Now return to the shack to rest and save.

-------------------------2.4 - GAEA'S CLIFF [GC]---------------------

Leave the shack and head north.  Climb upwards and go to the ledge.  
You'll notice the gauge in the corner.  This is your temperature.  
You need to keep this above 27.  If you don't you'll pass out and end 
up back in the shack.  You keep it up by hammering the Square button, 
but you can only do this on a ledge.  The maximum temperature is 38.  
Also, your heat doesn't go down in battle or while in a cavern.

When on the ledge, go toward the flag and climb up.  Keep going up, 
climbing where the flags are and keeping you heat up at every ledge.  
Eventually you'll come to a cavern opening.  Go inside and head north 
under the arches.  Go through the door and head up the stairs to the 
left.  Go through the door to the south.  Head south and then right.  
When you get to the wall, keep going right.  You'll enter a chamber 
with a chest in.  Take the Ribbon in the chest and go left to return 
to the main path.  Go north and then west over the bridge.  Take the 
Javelin in the chest to the north and go through the door.  Go over 
the bridge and press Select.  Go north through the passage and when 
you come out, examine the blue boulder and pick the top option.  This 
will make the boulder unblock the passage below.  Retrace your steps 
back to where the Ribbon was, then head left and north, through the 
door.  Keep going north through the passage until you reach an exit.  
Follow the pathways that come next and eventually you'll be back 
outside.

Raise your temperature and climb up.  When the option appears choose 
to go up to the next ledge.  Keep climbing up and choose the top 
option to go right.  At the next ledge go up and then at the next 
one, go left, where the flag is.  Keep going up and you'll come to 
another cave opening.  Go inside.  

There is a Save Point in here to the north.  Use it and head to the 
lower right to the Elixer in the chest.  Now go north to the exit to 
the right.  You'll be outside.  Go north along the path, east then 
south.  In the next cavern, there is a Fire Armlet in the chest, take 
it and head left.  You will have an icicle, and some bats, just use 
Fire attacks, but the bats can Silence you so watch out.  Once you 
hurt the icicle enough it will begin to crack and you will have won.  
You need to do this to all four icicles hanging to the left.  They 
will fall to the lower level and fill the holes.  After 'killing' one 
you can choose to jump down.  Don't jump down (choose the top option) 
until you have made all the icicles fall, as then you can get the 
Last Elixer (which is really just a Megalixer, but when you get it, 
it's called a Last Elixer) in the chest to the far left.  Then go 
near the door and you will get the choice to jump down.  Do so by 
picking the bottom option.  The holes will be filled and you can now 
get up to the chest in the upper left corner which contains a Speed 
Source.  Jump over the stones to the north to get to the exit, you'll 
then go outside.

Pick up the Enhance Sword in the chest and head north, around the 
bend and then south.  You'll come out on the cliff again, so climb 
right, and choose to go up when the option appears.  Keep climbing up 
and you'll come to another cave entrance.  The pool of light restores 
HP and MP, and use the Save Point.  You should fight in this area to 
get some Dragon Armlet from the Blue Dragon's around here so you have 
one on every character.  If you haven't got Barrier up to MBarrier 
try to do so here.  When you think you are done, go to the right and 
down the long passageway.  A black creature, like the ones from 
Nibelhiem will appear, and then a two-headed boss will attack...

-----Twinhead-----

This boss has two heads, and can be a real pain if you don't know how 
to fight it.  One head is healed by ice (scaly one on the right) and 
the other by fire (the horned one on the left).  Use MBarrier and 
Haste on yourself and Slow Twinhead at the beginning and use Summon's 
like Alexander, Bahamut, maybe Odin.  Don't use Kjata or Bio.  You 
might want to stick to one head and attack with the opposite element, 
so fire and Ifrit on the right head and ice and Shiva on the left.  
When you kill one of the heads, it will cast a spell which can be 
very nasty if you have low HP.  It will do this twice when each head 
dies, so it is probably a good idea to stick to one head.  You'll get 
a Dragon Fang when you kill them. 

After the battle, I suggest you go back to the Save Point and pool of 
light.  When you are healed go back to the passage and go south, 
towards the screen.  You'll be outside, climb up the cliff to the 
right and when you get to the top, a FMV will play.  After it has 
finished, go north over the ridge.  Your party will talk then go left 
down the crater.  

-----------------------2.5 - NORTHERN CRATER [NCR1]------------------

In the next screen, go left until Tifa arrives.  She will force you 
to take her in your party if you don't have her in it already.  When 
you have made your party go left.  Go south to the lower path, and 
then go left and pick up the Summon Neo Bahamut materia.  You can 
jump to the Save Point, then jump north and go left.  Cloud will see 
something and a cutscene with the Shinra will happen.  When it's 
over, go left again and you'll see a 'shield' and some black 
creatures.  You need to cross when the wind is almost disappeared, 
but if you don't you'll get knocked back and have to fight a Wind 
Wing.  When you make it across, you'll see more black creatures.  
Follow them up the path and pick up the Kaiser Knuckle on the way.  
There's another shield on the next screen, but this time with a green 
aura going past every now and again, wait until this has gone and 
then for the wind to subside, then cross.  If you hit it, you need to 
fight a Wind Wing.  In the next screen, you'll see Sephiroth again, 
and he'll talk for a bit.  When he's done, he'll summon Jenova to 
fight you...

-----Jenova DEATH-----

Jenova's main attacks are Red Light, Silence and Tropic Wind.  You 
might want to start off by using MBarrier and Haste.  This battle can 
be pretty easy as the Red Light attack isn't that bad, and physical 
attacks can take off quite a bit of damage, but she does have quite a 
bit of HP.  If you feel like using Summons, use Kjata, Bahamut, Neo 
Bahamut and Titan.  Alexander and Comet magic is also good. You'll 
win a Reflect Ring, when she is defeated.  

Your party will talk after the battle, and you'll get the Black 
Materia back.  You need to give it to someone else, who isn't in your 
party.  Some of your team will refuse to take it, like Yuffie, 
Vincent, or Cait Sith.  When you've given it to someone, talk to 
Tifa.  Head north and pick up MP Turbo materia on the ground.  Keep 
goinG up and save at the Save Point.  Take the Poison Ring from the 
chest and head north.  There is another 'shield' screen here.  This 
one has the wind, the green aura and a strike of lightening.  Wait 
for them all to pass, then cross.  And yes, if you hit it, you have 
to fight a Wind Wing.  Go north.

You'll come to a replica of Nibelhiem, and you'll now be in a semi 
interactive flashback.  Sephiroth will turn up followed by some guy 
with black hair in Cloud's place.  Talk to Tifa to continue.  You'll 
see Nibelhiem burning down again.  When your party appears in the 
burning rubble, they will talk and Sephiroth will appear and talk 
some more.  Talk to him when you can move, then talk to Tifa twice.  
Sephiroth wilL talk and then show you the picture taken at Nibelhiem 
in Cloud's flashback.  Where Cloud should be, the guy with black hair 
is there.  Cloud goes freaky and the scene ends.

You'll then see Rufus and the other Shinra heads talk.  The scene 
will switch back to the other party members not in your team, and 
everyone but whoever has the Black Materia will disappear.  Tifa will 
appear and make that person go into the crater.  Then Tifa will turn 
out to be Sephiroth.  The other party members will appear and the 
scene will switch back to the Shinra heads.  Your party will then 
appear where the Shinra are.  The person holding the Black Materia 
will turn up and press O a few times to get them to give the Black 
Materia to Cloud.  Cloud will then fly up to where Sephiroth is.  
Hojo will talk for a bit, then watch the FMV where Cloud will give 
the Black Materia to Sephiroth and the crater will fall apart.  Watch 
the very cool FMV as the WEAPON's appear, and everyone but Cloud will 
escape on the Highwind.  

There'll be a flashback and you'll come to at Junon Town.

-------------------2.6 - JUNON TOWN REVISITED [JUN2]-----------------

You'll talk to Barret and then find out that Meteor has been 
summoned, WEAPON's are attacking and that the Northern Cave is 
protected by a barrier.  When you can move talk to Barret, and Rufus 
and Heidegger will turn up.  As Barret, follow Tifa and the guards.  
Save at the Save Point then follow them down the stairs.  Go left and 
down the stairs.  Just keep following them, until you come to a room 
with some chairs.  Tifa will get strapped into the gas chamber.  
WEAPON will then attack Junon.  Scarlet will get knocked out by Cait 
Sith and two guards will attack Cait Sith and Barret.  Just attack 
with physical attacks.  After the battle,  go to the door in the 
south east.  Press O a few times.  You'll then see Heidegger and 
Rufus arm the big cannon to fire against WEAPON.  After it fires and 
WEAPON still attacks Junon, the scene will switch back to Tifa.  Gas 
will start pumping into the chamber.  As Barret go talk to Cait Sith.  
Go north, out the door, then right.  There can be some tough random 
battles around here, so you may want to equip some materia.  You'll 
see Yuffie posing as a reporter, talk to her to get her to join you.  
Keep going left.  Go north and examine the yellow box to go up a 
level.  Go north east towards the ship in the background.  You'll now 
switch to Tifa.  To free her, press the following buttons: X, X, 
Triangle, X and Triangle, Triangle and Circle, Circle.  This will 
free her and then go around to the back of the seat and press O to 
shut off the gas.  Go over to the door and WEAPON will cut and 
opening in the ceiling before being shot again with the cannon.  Make 
your way down the side and then go towards the top left, using the 
Select button might help.  Keep going this way to the end of the 
cannon.  Scarlet will appear and start slapping you!  Slap her back 
with O.  If you hit her enough, she'll fall to the ground; if you get 
hit too much, you fall to the ground.  No matter what happens,  
Barret will appear in the Highwind and save Tifa.  Go into the door 
to the left to enter the Highwind.  Go down the stairs and go to the 
right along the walkway.  Keep going right to get to the cockpit.  
Talk to everyone here, ending in Red XIII.  Then talk to Cid and the 
pilot next to him. Go back to the room called Operation.  Talk to the 
man here, and make a new party.  You can also restore HP and MP, and 
save.  Go back and talk to the pilot and choose the top option to fly 
the Highwind.  

You'll notice the big pink Meteor in the sky and you can ram the 
barrier around the Northern Crater (it won't get you anywhere).  Lots 
of places sell new items, such as Junon Town, Fort Condor, Costa De 
Sol and Rocket Town.  In Rocket Town, in the weapon/accessory shop 
there is a chest with a Fourth Bracelet in.  When you're done, fly to 
the south-eastern continent. There is an town surrounded by a forest.  
Land the Highwind on the grass and enter the town.  

----------------------------2.7 - MIDEEL [MDE]-----------------------

Go to the right, not north and go into the shops.  Talk to the 
hyperactive kid in each store and buy weapons, they're expensive but 
worth it.  At the back of the weapon store, examine the door and then 
go to where the accessory shop is.  Go behind it and the walkway will 
creak.  Examine it to get the 'Beat-up Useless Old Key'.  Go back to 
the weapon store's door and examine the door again.  When the option 
appears you can either lie and get some funny results about how nice 
the door is :) or choose the bottom one to get the Curse Ring.  
You'll need to reset if you chose the top option.  When your done 
shopping, go to the right along the upper walkway and into the house 
here.  You can buy accessories here.  Now go north and Tifa will play 
with the cat.  While doing this, she will overhear some people 
talking nearby.  It turns out that Cloud washed up near here and is 
being cared for in the hospital.  Tifa insists on staying with him.  

You'll then be back on the Highwind.  Cait Sith will reveal that the 
Shinra are looking fro Huge Materia at Corel and Fort Condor.  Cid 
will then be declared the new party leader, complete with his weird 
running style.  Go to the Operations room to make a new party.  
Afterwards, land the Highwind and return to Mideel.  Go into the 
house to the left of where the cat was.  Pick up the Elixer from the 
bed.  When you try to leave the old man will ask if you took it, 
answer however, you'll still get to keep it.  Return to the Highwind 
and go to North Corel.

--------------2.8 - NORTH COREL HUGE MATERIA QUEST [NCHM]------------

Go to the north of the town and go along the long train track bridge.  
Go north east and then along the bridge in the west direction.  These 
train tracks should look familiar, so make your way west to where the 
Save Point is.  Keep going west, then north west across the bridge 
until you reach North Corel reactor.  Go north and you'll be attacked 
by some Shinra guards, they are easily killed.  Afterwards, a train 
will leave the reactor.  Cid will go and get another train to chase 
the Shinra one.

In the next bit, you will firstly need to continually press Up and 
Triangle to catch up with the other train.  This may take some 
practice to get a fast motion going.  You should arrive at the other 
train and will jump on it.  On each carriage you will need to fight a 
battle, there are 5 in all.  Don't use Summon's as they take too 
long, concentrate on magic and physical attacks.  Once you get to the 
engine after the battles, press the buttons in the following order, 
after your friends have stopped talking:  Up and Triangle, Down and 
X, Down and X.  The train will speed up before stopping before 
actually hitting the town.  If you saved North Corel, you'll get the 
Huge Materia and then go to where the shops are, and you'll get the 
Ultima materia from a kid.  You'll then sleep in the inn.  If you 
didn't save the town, you can pay 50,000 Gil to the kid for the 
materia. If you go into the house below the inn and talk to the woman 
here, you'll get Barret's Level 4 Limit Break Manual from her.  Now 
leave North Corel, get in the Highwind and fly to Fort Condor.  

-------------2.9 - FORT CONDOR HUGE MATERIA QUEST [FCHM]-------------

You might want to save in the bedroom before starting this quest.  
When you are done, go up the ladder in the top left side of the area 
and then up the stairs.  Talk to the orange guy up here and pick the 
middle option to start a mini game, or the bottom option to learn 
more.  In the mini game you need to set units to attack oncoming 
enemies, it doesn't really matter if they reach the reactor, because 
if they do, your party just has to fight the commander which is 
easier than the mini game. So if you want to Have money, as you have 
to pay for the units you use, just put down a few units and wait 
until they attack the shed and beat the commander that way.  Watch 
the FMV then go out the door and pick up the Summon Phoenix materia 
and look at the sweet ickly baby condor, who will then fly off.  Go 
back inside and talk to the man praying at the table to get the Huge 
Materia.  You'll then learn there's another Huge Materia in Junon, 
but first go back to Mideel and go and talk to Tifa.  The screen will 
shake, so go outside and you'll see Ultima WEAPON flying about.  
After Cid shouts at it, it will attack you...

-----Ultima WEAPON-----

This boss only has a few attacks (Quake 2 and Ultima Beam) and is 
pretty easy to beat, use Barrier as he deal out quite a bit of 
damage, you can also use Haste if you like, and then just use 
powerful summons and physical attacks and eventually he'll fly off.

The town will then fall about and as Cloud and Tifa try to escape, 
they will fall into the Lifestream.

--------------------2.10 - INSIDE THE LIFESTREAM [LFS]---------------

You'll now control Tifa and after she freaks out, you'll be in a 
place of Cloud's memories.  Firstly talk to the Cloud in the north, 
when Nibelhiem is.  Go north a bit, and then talk to Cloud when he 
appears.  When your back with the other Cloud's talk to the one on 
the left, looking at the well.  After that's done, talk to the Cloud 
on the steps, then to the kid Cloud.  After Tifa and Cloud fall, talk 
to the shadow of Cloud. Then follow Cloud to where Niblehiem is and 
talk to him.  Then go into Nibelhiem.   You'll go to the Mako 
reactor.  The rest of the story should unfold and you'll learn who 
Cloud really is.  After that, talk to Cloud one last time and you'll 
be returned to the real world.

When you have returned to the Highwind, talk to the guy here and make 
a new team.  You might want to go back to Mideel and buy some more 
things from the hyper kid up the slope.  Also go to the Chocobo Farm 
and buy some Mimett Greens and give them to the white chocobo (they 
are called Salerno Greens there for some reason) and you'll get the 
Contain materia.  You might also want to spend this time breeding 
chocobos before going on with the story, as you can get the Knights 
Of The Round materia which can wipe out the rest of the bosses in one 
hit.  You can also go into the Gold Saucer again, and get the key to 
Midgar from the Bone Village (see Tifa's Ultimate Weapon).  Anyway 
when you are done, go to Junon.

----------------2.11 - JUNON HUGE MATERIA QUEST [JHM]----------------

Go to the soldier at the north of the town and pay him to ride the 
elevator.  Press the panel to ride it.  Go to the main road in Junon 
and go south then north until you reach a grey corridor with an 
officer drilling his men (he'll be blowing a whistle).  Go towards 
them and follow them through the door to the left.  In the elevator, 
you'll fight some soldiers.  At the bottom of the elevator you have 
to fight some more soldiers.  After they're done, go south then left.  
Then go right down the stairs and save. Go down the next elevator.  
Go north through the underwater tunnel. Go into the chamber at the 
end and press the red switch.  Then go back out the door you came 
from.  Go along the walkway past some submarines, and hit a Save 
Point in the next hall.  You can talk to the guard in the north and 
he will fight you, then two more soldiers will; if you don't talk to 
him all three will fight you.  Got to the right and fight more 
guards.  Make your way across the walkway and see the Huge Materia 
being loaded.  Keep going right and you'll meet Reno of the Turks 
again, but he will sent a metal machine after you instead...

-----Carry Armour-----

If you have Knights of the Round, this boss can be killed in one go.  
Otherwise: All three parts of this boss are weak against Lightening, 
so use Ramuh and Bolt as much as you can.  The guy's arms can 
imprison one or two of your allies, and they receive a third of the 
damage the boss takes, so if they are caught try not to use anything 
that hits more than once.  The only way to get your allies back 
during the battle is to kill off the arm they are held in, or to have 
that character die.  Once you have your characters back, use Phoenix 
to restore them and hurt the boss.  This guy has a pretty nasty 
attack called Lapis Laser which can take off about 1,500 HP so watch 
out for that.  You'll get the God's Hand once you're done.

Head to the left to get the Battle Trumpet.  Then head towards the 
guards in the background.  Get the Scimitar from the chest by the 
stairs and the Leviathan Scales in the chest to the left.  Then go up 
the stairs and fight the guards.  Cloud will then get in the sub and 
you'll have to fight the three guards in here. Save after killing 
them, then go to the door to the north to meet the commander and two 
soldiers.  You can either choose to let them live (bottom option) or 
fight them (top).  Afterwards examine the chair and read the manual 
then sit in the chair.  Then pick the bottom option to start a mini 
game: 

Use square to shoot torpedoes when near an enemy sub.  X Speed Down, 
Triangle Speed Up.  Most is explained in the manual.  You have 10 
minutes to complete the mini game.  First locate the red Shinra sub 
and continually shoot torpedoes at it, you can also destroy the 
yellow subs too.  Watch out for mines, and if WARNING comes up an 
enemy sub is approaching, ALERT when it is firing, MINE if you've run 
into a mine, and CONFLICT if you are hitting the ocean floor.  When 
you are done, Misson Complete will appear and you can now use the sub 
on the World Map.  If you didn't do it, your party will jettison the 
sub.  You will then be at the dock near Junon.  Before going into 
Junon, get back in the sub.  

---------------2.12 - SUNKEN SHINRA PLANE (GELNIKA) [SSP]------------

Go to the bay near Gold Saucer, there is a dock nearby.  Submerge and 
you'll see a plane on the sea bed.  Touch it to enter.  The enemies 
in here are very hard, so be careful in random battles.  Go left and 
save.  Take the Heaven's Cloud from the chest and go in the door to 
the north.  Go left and get the Escort Guard from the chest.  Go to 
the top right corner and pick up the Double Cut materia.  Go to the 
top left corner and take the Conformer, Yuffie's Ultimate Weapon.  
Then go back to the entrance and go north across the beams and pick 
up the Megalixer in the chest.  Then go back to the Save Point.  Go 
left and you'll meet Reno and Rude again.  You'll have to fight them 
once again...

-----Reno and Rude-----

This is much like any other time you have faced Reno and Rude, hurt 
one enough the other will go, Rude can use Fire and Ice, and Reno 
uses Neo Turk Light a lot.  Haste your guys, Barrier etc, or just use 
KOTR to kill them in one go.  They can confuse you as well, and use 
Summons whenever you can.  You'll get an Elixer when they leave.  

Go through the door they were by.  Take the Megalixer from the chest 
and go all the way along the walkway to get to a cheat with the 
Spirit Lance in.  Go down to the lower level and take the Outsider 
and Cid's Level 4 Limit Break Manual, Highwind from the chest below.  
Go to the helicopter and pick up the Summon Hades materia there.  
There's nothing else here so you can leave or morph the enemies here 
into various sources.  

If you completed the mini game, you need to get the Huge Materia from 
the downed Shinra sub so go to the islands to the south of the World 
Map, west of the Temple of the Ancients, and south east of the weapon 
smiths house.  Submerge and look around underwater for the red sub.  
Touch it to pick up the Huge Materia.

If you didn't complete the mini game go back to Junon and to back to 
the grey walkway in the centre of the town.  Go down the elevator to 
where the dog is, fight some guards then examine the dog, follow him 
and examine him again. Pick the top option.  Fight the guards that 
show up, then choose to either fight the commander or not. You will 
then gain control of the sub.

Now go to the southern part of the Northern continent.  Look around 
for a tunnel in the wall leading to a cave, there is a spiky object 
here.  Touch it to take it.  Now you can choose to go back to Junon.  
You can go back to airport to see an optional FMV of the plane taking 
off with the Huge Materia.  Now go back to Rocket Town.

-------------2.13 - ROCKET TOWN HUGE MATERIA QUEST [RTHM]------------

Go to the rocket, and fight the two soldiers.  Then fight the others 
up the stairs.  Cid will then show up and insist on being in your 
party.  Go up the ladder and you'll fight Rude and some soldiers....

-----Rude (and soldiers)-----

Finish off the soldiers first, and use KOTR if you have it.  If not, 
just Haste, Barrier etc, and use summons and spells.  He can Cure 
himself and use Bolt2.  He's pretty easy to beat and you might win an 
S-Mine when you're done.  

Go inside the rocket and you'll fight another soldier.  Go through 
the northern door with Circle and talk to the crew here.  After Cid's 
done being all heroic, and the rocket take off, go to the door on the 
right and up the ladder.  Examine the Huge Materia.  Pick the top 
option and when the first message appears, press Circle.  Then, on 
the second message, press Square; on the third message, press X and 
on the fourth one, press X.  Go back down the ladder, after getting 
the Huge Materia.  Head down the ladder to the cockpit and go through 
the door to the south and climb down the ladder here.  When you walk 
past the tanks, they will explode, trapping Cid.  Shera will help Cid 
get out and into the escape pod.  After a long cutscene and FMV,  
you'll be back in the Highwind.  

After talking a bit, go to Cosmo Canyon.  Go up to Bugenhagen's 
observatory.  Talk to Bugenhagen and Cloud will call the others.  
They will talk about Aeris for a while and Cloud will ask Bugenhagen 
to look after the Huge Materia.  Examine them all and get the Bahamut 
ZERO Summon from getting closer to the Huge Blue Materia.  Exit Cosmo 
Canyon, and go to the Ancient City on the Northern Continent.

--------------2.14 - CITY OF THE ANCIENTS REVISITED [ANC3]-----------

At the crossroads go left, then right under the overhang.  Go to the 
right over the arches to get to where Bugenhagen is. You talk for a 
while about the Ancient's, the Planet, and Holy.  You need the spiky 
object you got from the sea, which is actually a key to continue.  If 
you didn't get it, Bugenhages will stay here until you get it.  If 
you do have it, it will create a waterfall and a short FMV will 
occur.  Go across the bridge and you will see pictures of Aeris on 
the water.  After Bugenhagen has finished talking, you can leave the 
Ancient City.  You discover that the Sister Ray has been moved to 
Midgar.  Make your way back to the Highwind.  You see another WEAPON 
rise from the water near Midgar.  Land the Highwind near Midgar and 
wait for the WEAPON to reach the land.  You can now run into it to 
fight it...

-----Diamond WEAPON-----

Haste/Big Guard/MBarrier etc at the start.  Physical attacks won't 
work, so stick to Summon's and spells. He likes to stomp on you a 
lot, so be sure to use Cure/All.  Don't use Demi or Bio. You can slow 
him too, and when you've hurt him enough he will use Countdown.  If 
you kill him before the countdown ends, you win, but if the countdown 
does end, the Sister Ray will shoot him.  Either way he gets shot by 
Sister Ray, but if you kill him, you get looooooooooads of EXP, AP 
and Gil.

Watch the FMV's and after Midgar gets hit, you'll be back on the 
HIghwind.  You can go fight Ultimate WEAPON now or just fly towards 
the Northern Cave to get on with the plot.  You'll find the barrier 
is gone and that Hojo has taken over the Sister Ray.  Now make your 
way to Midgar and fly over it.  You will be on the deck of the 
Highwind.  Pick your party and parachute into Midgar.

-------------2.15 - RETURN TO MIDGAR/MIDGAR UNDERGROUND [MDG2]-------

Watch the FMV and when you get inside Midgar, follow Cait Sith.  Go 
north, talk to everyone here, save and talk to Cait Sith to open 
hatch.  Go down the ladder to enter the underground of Midgar.  Go 
down the ladder and then down the slope (not the stairs).  Go north, 
over the wood plank, then right to a chest with a Megalixer in.  Then 
go all the way left past the wood plank to a chest with an Elixer in.  
Go all the way back to the ladder where you came underground and go 
down the stairs here.  Go down the ladder to the left and north in 
the background.  Go all the way up to get an Aegis Armlet.  Go back 
down the ladder to the walkway and run to the right of the screen.  
After the walkway gives way, head left, onto the pipe and go up the 
ladders.  Keep going up, and when you are off the ladder, go under 
the stairs, down and into the pipe.  Open the chests here to get an 
Elixer and a Starlight Phone.  Go down the ladder in the foreground.  
Go towards the pipe with 42 on it.  Go north through the pipe, and 
when at the other end, go left and up the ladder.  Get the Max Ray 
and head back down the ladder.  Go down the chute and press left to 
jump up.  Go up the ladder and up the stairs in the background, near 
the 12 pipe.  Go up the stairs and save.  Enter the area in red and 
go north through the crawl space.  Firstly go south.  Keep going 
south until you see a treasure chest on the left.  Open it to get a 
Power Source.  Again keep going south until there is a chest between 
the doorways.  There is a Guard Source inside.  South again is two 
chests with a Mind Source and a Magic Source in.  Go south again to 
get to a dead end with a Save Point and the W-Item Materia nearby, to 
the right (see it was worth it!).  Save if you want and go 
aaaaalllllllllllllllllllllllllll the way north to where the crawlway 
is; (where you entered the sewers with the red area).  You'll 
probably want to go back to the Save Point next to the crawlway 
entrance.  Go north in the sewers when you're done, and all three 
Turks will show up...

-----Reno, Rude and Elena-----

Reno is healed by ice, Rude by fire and Elena by lightning so it's 
best to stick to non-elemental attacks like Bahamut, Ultima, Tornado 
or Break.  This battle is pretty tough and try not to use Pheonix to 
revive if you can as it will heal Rude, being the bird of fire and 
all.  Obviously use Barrier or Wall and Haste at the beginning.  
Limit Breaks work well as always and Cure/All, just be careful if you 
use Wall or MBarrier as Cure will only restore half of what it 
normally does.  After you dealt out the damage the Turks will run 
away and you'll get a measly Elixer for your battle.

Go north and when you see Cid, take the left path.  Go up the ladder 
to the left and go north to arrive back at the Shinra HQ.  Cait Sith 
will come out the entrance.  You can now get the items in the chests 
in the Accessories room; and if you go up to the 64th floor and 
examine the lockers at the back you can get Cait Sith's Ultimate 
Weapon, the HP Shout.  Go back to the sewers.  Go south until you get 
to another secret passage.  Take the left path to get outside.  Go 
north and Cloud will climb to the street.  Go north and a huge 
machine will turn up, being controlled by Heidegger and Scarlet...

-----Proud Clod-----

This boss consists of two part (head and chest).  The boss doesn't do 
too much damage, but be careful when it kneels and fires from its 
back.  It can also disable your Materia.  Use only powerful Summons 
or spells after Barrier and Haste.  Try to keep your HP up too.  
You'll get the Ragnarok sword after defeating Proud Clod.

Go north after the battle.  Open the two chests to get an Elixer and 
a Mystile.  Use the Save Point and go up the stairs.  Talk to Vincent 
on the first landing and go to the second landing.  If you have 
Barrett on your team, there will be a chest here with Barret's 
Ultimate Weapon the Missing Score in.  If Barrett isn't in your team 
the chest won't be there.  Either way, go up the stairs and to the 
right.  You'll talk to Hojo.  He'll then attack you...

-----Hojo-----

Hojo fights in three forms.  He uses Capsule to make some sample 
monsters appear.  Every time you kill them he'll just make more 
reappear so concentrate on Hojo himself.  Use Barrier and Haste if 
you like although this battle isn't that hard if you keep your HP up.  
After killing the first form of Hojo, he'll appear as Helletic Hojo 
which has three parts.  Ignore the arms and focus on attacks on the 
main body.  He can confuse or Silence you, and the right causes quite 
some damage.  The final form of Hojo can cause Silence and Slow and 
can use and attack called Combo which can Poison whoever it hits.  On 
all forms just use Summons, spells and physical attacks if you have 
high attack points.  You'll get a Power Source for killing all three 
forms.

You go back to the Highwind and then watch the cut scenes.  There is 
then a pretty long cut scene with Cloud and Tifa.  At the end, watch 
the Highwind blast off and that's it for Disc 2!

 ------------------
| DISC THREE [DSC3]|
 ------------------

-------------------------3.1 - NORTHERN CAVE [NCA]-------------------

You'll start off on the outside deck of the Highwind.  You can go 
down the ladder to go into the Northern Cave or go back to the 
cockpit to return to the World Map.  To continue, choose to go down 
and when you jump into the crater descent, you will see a treasure 
chest with a Save Crystal in it.  You can use this to create a save 
point in the Cave, but you can only use it once, so don't use it yet. 
Next to the treasure chest is a door or a cave leading back to the 
Highwind in case you need anything or just running low on supplies.

Go down the path, jumping across the gaps automatically. You can pick 
up the Guard Source in the chest along here.  Leave the descent and 
you'll enter a new area.  Here you can climb down the grey areas with 
O.  Climb down the right side and get to the chest with another Guard 
Source in.  Go to the next chest (Mind Source), don't walk off the 
edge of the ledge below or you'll have to climb back up. You can now 
either climb back up and get the rest of the chests, or continue down 
into the Cave.  To get the chests, firstly climb up the ledge to your 
left.  Go all the way to the left and climb up two ledges, then walk 
to the right to find another chest containing a Magic Source. Go left 
again, go up to the next ledge, then go to the right and climb up 
again. Walk all the way to the right, climb up again and head left to 
find a chest holding an Elixir. Then go up to the next ledge, go 
left, and climb up the grey part to get to a chest containing a Power 
Source.  Go to the right and past a large rock to obtain a HP Absorb 
materia. When you've got all that, jump back down, go right, and 
climb up the ledge to reach the top again and make your way south to 
an area with a load of ledges again.  Go to the right to fall down 
and go to a hidden chest on the left with a Mind Source in.  Go to 
the ledge edge and press O when the message appears to jump up.  Walk 
left until you fall down, then go right and walk through the doorway 
by pressing up. Through here is a chest with a Megalixir. Make your 
way back to the other screen and go to the left to fall down another 
level.  Get the chest to the right (Hero Drink) and go through the 
doorway on the left. Get the Guard Source and follow the path to a 
Power Source.  Go back out and go up to the opening that will take 
you back to the top.  Go all the way down by running right, fall 
down, right again and go through the doorway.  Go through the opening 
it takes you to, and go left, then fall down and then right.  In the 
next screen climb down the first "ladder" and here's a good point to 
use your Save Crystal.  Then climb down again and you'll meet the 
rest of your friends.  You need to decide which way they should all 
take, left or right.  Choose a way for Cloud to go and then tell the 
people you want in your party to go the same way. If you told the 
people who were in your party before to go another way to Cloud, 
you'll have to make a new party.  I've separated the paths below, 
right path, and left path, with the upper and lower routes separated.
 
---------------------------3.2 - RIGHT PATH [RP]---------------------

You'll find yourself in a rocky area. Follow the path down. At the 
gap, choose to either jump down or turn back.  Get the Mystile in the 
chest on the right and the green Elixer to your left.  Keep going 
along the path. The chest in the north has a Speed Source in it.  
There is a Tetra Elemental in the chest between the broken 
structures.  On the main path, head east then north.  At the path 
split go west and get the Megalixer from the chest and retrack to the 
path split and go north.  The chest on the right has another 
Megalixer in it.  Keep going north to the bridge and work your way 
down it to the Place of Gathering. 

----------------------------3.3 - LEFT PATH [LP]---------------------

At the start of this path, whoever else (apart from your current 
party)you told to go on the left path will ask whether to take the 
upper or lower path.  Take the path you didn't tell the others to go. 

-----------------------3.4 - LEFT PATH: UPPER [LPU]------------------

Jump down to the brown branch thing and go to the right and press up 
to get to another branch.  Then go right and get the Magic Source 
from the chest and go back to the first branch.  Go left then north 
to the edge.  Here Cloud will jump to the rocks.  Go north along the 
path and Cloud will dive into the water and re surface on the other 
side. Get the Remedy from the chest by going left then north.  Make 
your way right and take the upper path to get to a new screen.  Go to 
the far right and pick up a Hero Drink from the chest.  Take the 
upper route and go all the way left and to the north to get to a 
chest with a Vaccine in.  Walk in front of the rock on the right and 
take the path up to the top and pick up the Shield materia there.  
From here walk to the left and press down to climb down.  Cloud will 
get his feet wet again and re surface near a chest, this time with an 
Imperial Guard in. After getting it, press down to make Cloud re 
enter the water and go back to the other side of the screen.  Run 
south then east to arrive in a new area.  This place can be annoying 
due to layout and there isn't a clear path, but go to the left and 
work your way down.  Go towards the centre of the screen and then 
north to end up near a small dot.  Press O to get the W-Magic 
materia.  Now make your way to the light by going south then east.  
When you get to the light, examine the bit of darkness to get a 
Counter materia.  The go west then north to get to the Place of 
Gathering. 

----------------------3.5 - LEFT PATH: LOWER [LPL]-------------------

Jump down the columns and get the Remedy from the chest.  Go right 
and go up the steps to get to an Elixer in a chest.  Make your way 
back to the first chest and jump down to the column at the bottom of 
the ledge to get an X-Potion in a chest.  Go southeast to the next 
screen.  Jump down and go left to get a Turbo Ether.  Follow the path 
and get the Vaccine from the chest.  Go west then south and jump 
across some more columns.  Go to the south and then right to get down 
to a ledge with another X Potion.  Go to the left over the bridge and 
drop down.  Keep going right and then down the steps.  There is a 
chest to the left with a Turbo Ether inside.  Go to the left and 
there is a materia floating in the air.  You will jump onto that 
platform but you need to press O at the right time (or just hammer 
it) to pick up the materia before jumping onto the western ledge.  
It's the Mega-All materia and you can only get it while jumping from 
the south not from the western ledge.  Anyway, get the Speed Source 
from the chest on the western ledge and make your way south to the 
Place of Gathering.
 
------------------------3.6 - PLACE OF GATHERING [POG]---------------

On the right is a chest with a Luck Source. Follow the path until you 
get to a set of steps.  The rest of your friends will turn up and you 
can talk to them to get various items.  Some may not have some, 
depending the way you told them to go.  When you have their items, 
approach the steps.  Choose to either go down or stay.  If you choose 
to go down, you can't come up, so I suggest going back along the 
paths that you didn't do along, to pick up items etc.  Once you're 
all done up there choose to go down.  You'll leap down the steps 
towards the centre and can be attacked while descending.  After the 
second set of steps you'll reach the centre and have to fight the 
final form of Jenova.
 
-----Jenova Sythesis-----

Haste and Barrier/Wall yourself and begin to deal out the damage with 
Enemy Skills and Summons. After you've hit the arms enough they'll 
drop but you need to kill the rest of Jenova quickly after that as 
they will be resurrected after a while, so multi enemy spells and 
summons are essential here.  If you have high attack, physical 
attacks are good.  Her attacks themselves aren't much to worry about 
but when she is about to kick the bucket, a countdown will begin, 
going down from 5 every round.  If it hit's zero, Jenova will cast 
Ultima ending the fight.  But if you end it like this, you won't get 
any EXP, Gil or AP for the battle so try and hit her hard to end it 
quick.
 
After Jenova's death, the ground begins to fall apart and Cloud etc 
begin to float.  Sephiroth appears and you'll get to make a new party 
and visit the menu before you have to fight the first form of 
Sephiroth. 

-----Bizzaro Sephiroth-----

Wall/Haste at the beginning to up your defence and use multi enemy 
attacks again to damage the five parts of Bizzaro.  Whenever one of 
his body parts dies, you are given the option to switch to another 
party (if you had the choice to make another party).  If you have 
more than one, only one party can attack the centre of Sephiroth's 
body, the yellow orb.  Once that team has damaged the centre enough 
you can switch back to Cloud's party and get that team to attack him.  
Once you've killed the orb attack the other body parts. If you have 
more than one party, and one team is wiped out the game is over, so 
watch out.  You should also be careful in relation to Cloud's level 
as Sephiroth will gain more HP etc compared to his level.

Sephy can heal himself and resurrect body parts.  His attacks include 
Demi 3, a fire ray type attack and an attack that reduces all party 
members HP to 1 point. 

Once Bizzaro Sephiroth has been defeated, Sephiroth shows up in a new 
form. You fight him with whatever team Cloud is a part of.

-----Safer Sephiroth-----

Safer Sephiroth can be pretty mean and again his HP etc depend on 
Cloud's level.  He attacks may ways, can slow and dispel team 
members, cast Wall on himself and attack with various high level 
magic.  One of his meanest attacks is Supernova that hits all party 
members.  He also has a laser attack and can fly high, preventing 
some characters from attacking physically. 

Use Wall/Haste/Regen and fix any status problems from the previous 
fight.  Again dish it out with best summons (KOTR, Bahamut ZERO), 
spells (Ultima, Flare) and enemy skills, as well as anything else 
that deals big damage, such as Coin or Throw, as you won't be needing 
money or items anymore!

After killing Safer Sephiroth, Cloud will fight Sephiroth one last 
time, one on one. It's very easy and impossible to lose, so either 
let Cloud counter or use Omnislash (which comes up even if you 
haven't learned it).  After that is over, enjoy the really long (as 
most game endings are) ending, and get very, very happy as that's it! 
Final Fantasy VII Completed!!!!

---------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------5. SIDE QUESTS-----------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

 -------------------------------------
| 5.1 - GETTING VINCENT VALENTINE [VV]|
 -------------------------------------

Go to Nibelhiem. Enter the mansion to the north. You can look at the 
letter to the far left to get some hints about the combination. Go up 
both sets of stairs and go left. Go into the room on Cloud's right. 
There is a safe here. Examine it and pick the top option. You now 
have 20 seconds to input the safe combination. You must hit the 
number exactly and input it with O. You can't go past the number by a 
few digits then go back again input it as this won't work. The 
combination is: 36, 10, 59, 97. If you put it in correctly, the safe 
will open and you will be attacked... 
 
-----Lost Number----- 
 
Just attack with your best spells and summons - Choco/Mog works well 
as it usually paralyses this boss. You need to be careful after you 
inflict enough damage as the boss will shed of it's parts, leaving it 
either red or purple. If it is red, magic won't hurt it as much, so 
use physical attacks. In it's red form it will primarily use magic 
attacks on you. If it is purple, physical attacks won't work as well, 
so use magic attacks. In purple form it can deliver some nasty 
physical attacks so keep your HP up. 
 
When you have beaten the boss, pick up the red Summon Odin materia, 
Red XIII's Level 4 Limit Break manual, Cosmo Memory, and the Key to 
the Basement. Go to the left from the top of the stairs and through 
the door in the corner of the lower room. Go down the spiral 
staircase and go south to the second screen (before the library). You 
can now open the door to the north. Examine the closed coffin and 
talk to Vincent. Tell him about Sephiroth and name him. Keep talking 
to him until he tells you to leave him alone. Attempt to leave up the 
stairs and Vincent will come out and choose to join you. 

 -----------------------------------
| 5.2 - GETTING YUFFIE KISARAGI [YK]|
 -----------------------------------

Go to the area near Gongaga Town where the burned out structure in 
the forest is. Don't enter this area with the reactor, stay on the 
World Map. Go and fight in the forests near this area. (Or in the 
forests near Junon). Eventually you will enter a fight with Yuffie. 
She is very easy to beat, and when you have won, you will find 
yourself on a field with Yuffie and your party. There is a Save Point 
in the corner but don't use it as Yuffie will run off and nick some 
of your money. Also don't go into the main menu. Talk to Yuffie and 
answer in the following way: 
 
'You spikey-headed jerk! One more time, let's go one more time.' 
- Not interested. 
 
'You're pretty scared of me, huh!?' 
- .....petrified. 
 
'I'm really gonna leave! REALLY!' 
- Wait a second. 
 
'You want me to go with you?' 
- That's right. 
 
'All right! I'll go with you.' 
- ......Let's hurry on. 
 
You can name her, and you now have Yuffie on your team.  

 -------------------------------
| 5.3 - VINCENT'S WATERFALL [VW]|
 -------------------------------

In Disc 2, breed a gold chocobo and go to the waterfall in the centre 
of the western continent. I think you can get there with the 
submarine as well. Ride the Chocobo to the west of the waterfall 
where the grass is. Dismount and enter the waterfall. Go to the room 
with the white stone. You must have Vincent in your team. He will 
talk about Lucrecia. In Disc 3, return here(again with Vincent)and 
you will receive Vincent's Ultimate Weapon, the Death Penalty, and 
his Level 4 Limit Break Manual, Chaos. 

 --------------------------------
| 5.4 - YUFFIE'S SIDE QUEST [YSQ]|
 --------------------------------

You can do Yuffie's side quest as soon as you get the Tiny Bronco, 
but can only do it in Disc 1 or 2. Go to the western-most continent 
and if you are in the Tiny Bronco, go to the far south of the island, 
and dismount on the beach. Head north and you will find a curving 
path that takes you up to the high mountain. As you reach the top, 
you will enter a plain and Yuffie will appear, and some Shinra guards 
will attack you. They are easy to beat and when you have defeated 
them, your party will realise that Yuffie has stolen all your 
materia. If you try to board the vehicle you won't be able to as your 
party (if you have Yuffie in your team, Barret will take her place) 
will refuse to and want to go after Yuffie, so head north over the 
bridges and through the valley until you reach Wutai. 
 
When you enter, you will see Yuffie run away. Head to the top left 
corner and go to the next screen. Head into the building to the 
right. You can rest in the room here, then go along the hall until 
you see a room with a man lying down inside. Go talk to him 
continually until he stands up and Yuffie will arrive, you will find 
out the man is Yuffie's father, Godo. If you follow Yuffie, she will 
have disappeared, so go into the room next to the one with Godo in. 
Examine the right wall and a secret passageway will appear. At the 
end is a chest with a Hairpin in. 
 
Go into the bar on the first screen and you'll see the Turks, Reno, 
Rude and Elena. Talk to them and then go to the Item Shop. There is a 
chest that is normally blocked to the right, but you can now open it 
to get a MP Absorb materia. But just as you get it, Yuffie will drop 
down and steal it off you. Now go into the house to the south east of 
the town. There is a folding cover to the left. Examine it to find 
Yuffie. She will run away again. Go to outside the bar. You will see 
the pot outside moving. Examine it and the rest of your party will 
block the exits. Hit O 3 times to hit the pot and make Yuffie jump 
out. She will try and escape but will be stopped by your team. Seeing 
he has no other choice, she leads you to her house to give you back 
your materia. 
 
You will see a scene where two Shinra guards will talk to the Turks 
at the bar. After this ends, you will be in Yuffie's house. Follow 
her downstairs and talk to her. Examine the levers at the back, it 
doesn't matter which one you choose, a cage will fall on your other 
party members, trapping them. After she leaves, examine the levers 
again to free your friends. 
 
Go back to where Godo was, but don't enter the building. There is an 
arch to the left, go through it and examine the bell her to ring it. 
This will reveal an entrance below. Go through it to see who has 
taken Yuffie....Don Corneo. He will also have nabbed Elena. Get the 
Swift Bolt and Elixer in the chests before going up the stairs. Three 
Shinra soldiers will attack you, kill them and find that the Don has 
escaped. 
 
Go outside and talk to Reno and Rude. Go to the north east part of 
Wutai, where there are lots of paths in a mountain. Talk to the Turks 
and take the path that goes to the north. Go past Rude and go south 
to find the Don. He will summon a monster for you to fight... 
 
----Rapps---- 
 
As you probably don't have any materia you can only attack. It's a 
good idea to use some of the attack items, like Swift Bolt etc to 
inflict more damage, and use Hi-Potions etc to cure. You'll win a 
Peace Ring. 
 
Don Corneo will talk for a while and ask a question, answer however. 
Reno and Rude will turn up and kill the Don. You will return to 
Yuffie's house where she will give you your materia back, but she 
will place it all wrong so re-equip it how you want.  

 -----------------------------------
| 5.5 - MATERIA CAVE LOCATIONS [MCL]|
 -----------------------------------

There are 4 materia caves on the World Map and hold some of the best 
materia in the game inside. Here are the locations and what's inside 
each. 
 
CAVE 1: Far south of Wutai, right at the end of the island, hidden 
behind a mountain, use a black or gold chocobo to get there. Go 
inside and examine the glowing light to receive the Quadra Magic 
materia. This casts a magic spell or summoning 4 times. 
 
CAVE 2: North of Mideel, on long island nearby. Go inside and examine 
the glowing light to receive the Mime materia. This mimes the 
previous command in battle. 
 
CAVE 3: Cave is next to the mountain lying on a square of brown land 
in the North Corel area. Need a black or gold chocobo to get there. 
Go inside and examine the glowing light to receive the HP<>MP materia 
which switches your HP and MP values. 
 
CAVE 4: Go to Goblin Island (its the elongated island with a forest 
on it to the northwest of the Chocobo farm). Ride a gold chocobo 
northwest from here. You will eventually come to an island that isn't 
on the map. It is surrounded by mountains and trees. There is a 
forest in the middle. Dismount in here and enter the cave. Examine 
the glowing light to receive the best summon materia in the game - 
the Knights of the Round. 

 --------------------------------------------
| 5.6 - TURTLE PARADISE FLYER LOCATIONS [TPF]|
 --------------------------------------------

Top Floor of a house in the Slum near Aeris' House  
Ground Floor of the Shinra Building  
Ghost Hotel in Gold Saucer  
Hotel at Cosmo Canyon  
Next to the Weapons Stand in Cosmo Canyon  
In Yuffie's House in Wutai (where she drops a cage on you)  
 
When you have them all go talk to the barman in Wutai. As a reward 
you get a Power Source, Guard Source, Magic Source, Mind Source, 
Speed Source, Luck Source and a Megalixer. 

 -------------------------------------
| 5.7 - SLEEPING MAN NEAR MIDGAR [SLE]|
 -------------------------------------

The sleeping man will give you something when you have won a certain 
number of battles. You can find him in a cave a little ways south and 
east of Midgar. You'll need the Buggy, the Airship, or the Green, 
Blue, Black, or Gold Chocobo to get to him. If you want to get to him 
using the Buggy, drive it into Costa del Sol and you will have the 
option of transporting it back to the continent where Midgar is. 
Inside the cave is the sleeping man, of course. He'll usually tell 
you how many wins you've gotten so far. - If your last two digits are 
odd, he'll give you Mythril. - If your last two digits are even, 
he'll give you an item (usually a Bolt Ring or Ice Ring). If you have 
a piece of Mythril, you can take it to the blacksmith who lives in 
the house on the peninsula near the Gold Saucer. He'll let you trade 
the Mythril for a Gold Armlet (in the long wooden chest), or the 
Great Gospel Manual (in the metal lid on the upper floor). You can 
return to the sleeping man and get as many rings or pieces of Mythril 
as you like.  

 ----------------------------
| 5.8 - KALM TRAVELLER [KLM2]|
 ----------------------------

On the top floor of the rightmost building in Kalm, there is a very 
happy traveller.  When Meteor is summoned, he says he will be leaving 
on a journey. He needs a Guidebook, the Earth Harp, and the Desert 
Rose. To get the Guidebook, you will have to go to the underwater 
reactor, and morph a Ghost Ship. By doing this, you will receive 
Underwater materia, which eliminates the 20 minute timer in the 
Emerald WEAPON fight. To get the Earth Harp, you must fight, and 
defeat the Emerald WEAPON (see WEAPON Strategies), and in return you 
wil get Master Magic, Master Command, and Master Summon Materia. And 
finally, you must fight and defeat the Ruby WEAPON (see WEAPON 
Strategies), to get the Desert Rose, and to exchange it for a Gold 
Chocobo.

 ---------------------------
| 5.9 - Ancient Forest [ANF]|
 ---------------------------

Get here by either beating Ultima WEAPON in Disc 2 or 3, and getting 
to the Ancient Forest by going behind the huge crater behind Cosmo 
Canyon, or breeding a Gold Chocobo and riding to here before Ultima 
WEAPON dies.  
 
Here you need to pick up frogs etc and put them in bags to access 
other areas in the forest.  If you completely muck up press Square to 
reset the whole area and you'll be placed right back at the beginning 
to start again.

Right to begin with put the three frogs in the bags near the trees, 
by going under the bridge and press O to make one frog jump in the 
bag.  Step on the full bag and press O again to make another frog 
jump in the next bag.  Get onto the second bag, and deposit the last 
frog in the third bag.  Jump to the other side.  Go near the pink 
plant.  Walk slowly on it, and don't get to the centre as if you do 
it will snap shut and you'll lose HP.  When you get near the item 
bag, press O to pick it and get a Supershot ST.  Get off the plant 
and go right.  Use the pink vine thing to get to the other side and 
collect the Spring Gun Clip past the tree.  Go right to the next 
screen, and pick up one of those lovely frogs again.  Go near the 
vine and go to the ledge by using the top option.  Put the frog in 
the bag and jump across that and the second bag.  Once on the ground 
get another frog and go to the top of the green ledge and let the 
frog jump into the bag on the left.  Wait until the frog escapes and 
you'll be put on the ledge above.  Get the wasp nest and jump down.  
Go near one of those annoying snapping plants again and release the 
nest near it.  Hopefully the plant will snap it.  Get the Slash All 
materia and take the big frog.  Go back to the green ledge and put 
the frog in the right bag.  Wait till this one escapes to be placed 
on the other side of the pink plant.   Go to the right to the next 
screen.  

In this screen place two frogs in the bags to get across with the 
vine.  Treetop time: head left and down to get the Minerva Band.  Go 
up and right, across the branch using the vines.  Head south to get 
the Typhoon summon and proceed across the vines, taking the lower 
branch when back on the branch.  Get a frog when back on the ground.  
Underneath the two bags in the right is a ledge.  Throw the frog into 
a bag from here.  Get on the full bag and go to the ledge with the 
wasps nest on.  Pick up the nest and do the same thing with the 
snapping plant as before.  Get a small frog and go past the plant.  
Let go of the frog once on the left ledge.  Go across using the bag 
and jump down to the ground.  Head left and pick up a frog.  Place it 
in the tree hollow, causing a big frog to hop out.  Take this big 
frog and put it in the bag that you used to get here.  Jump across to 
the ledge and wait for it to escape, before picking it up again.  
Release it in the far right bag, and use the momentum when it escapes 
to get to the cave entrance.  Go inside and open the chest on the 
right to get the Apocalypse sword (useful when fighting Ruby and 
Emerald WEAPON's).  Go north and east to pick up an Elixir.  Exit the 
forest on the left; you'll be back on the World Map. 

 --------------------------
| 5.10 - WUTAI PAGODA [PAG]|
 --------------------------

After completing Yuffie's side quest, you can go into the pagoda in 
the north of the town.  Here you will fight 5 bosses, one on each 
level, with only Yuffie.

On the first level you will fight:

-----GORKI-----

This guy is weak to Wind attacks, but it's easy enough to just take 
him down with physical attacks.  If you do attack with magic etc, 
don't use Quake or Titan, as Gorki is immune to earth attacks.

After you see off him, you can go up another level.  Before talking 
to the guy here, make sure you heal.

-----SHAKE-----

Not too hard, just attack with physical attacks and strong magic, 
just not Demi as he's immune to it.  Cure when you need to.

Up another level and it's:

-----CHEKHOV-----

Again, not hard.  You might have to watch out for Chekhov's ability 
to absorb HP, and again cure when need be and dish damage with 
physical and magic.  Yep, he's also immune to Demi.

 4th Level and this time you face:

-----STANIV-----



---------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------6. CHOCOBO BREEDING [CHO2]--------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

For Chocobo breeding, you're gonna need to get the Highwind, (which 
you get somewhere in Disc 2), and a load of money. But luckily you 
fight quite a bit during the breeding process so can make money from 
that. 
 
To catch a Chocobo, you need the Chocobo Lure from Choco Billy for 
2,000 Gil. You should have bought it earlier in the game when you 
cross the marsh in Disc 1. If you sold it, you can get another one in 
the Chocobo Farm, by the outside pen, which should now be empty. It's 
to the right when you first go in, against the south side of the 
fence. Once you have a Chocobo Lure, equip it to someone and walk 
around on some Chocobo tracks until you enter a battle with a 
Chocobo. You can tell its a Chocobo battle due to the different music 
(sounds like surfer music!). DONT attack the Chocobo, just kill the 
enemies. You can feed it greens to distract it while you defeat the 
enemies.

Another way to catch Chocobo's courtesy of marioRPGfan.

To catch a Chocobo much, much easier, find your fastest person (The 
person who loads his time bar the fastest). Then, equip Odin materia 
to that person. As soon as you enter the battle, use Odin. If he uses 
Steel Bladed Sword, you're almost set. As long as it hits all of your 
enemies (Kills them all), you've got your Chocobo, because it ALWAYS 
misses the Chocobo. If he uses Gunge Lance, you don't have much of a 
chance of getting your Chocobo. This way, you shouldn't need greens. 
This will save you lots of money when catching Chocobo's.  
 
Go to the Chocobo Farm and enter the house, not the barn and talk to 
the guy there to buy Chocobo stables for 10,000 Gil. If you are low 
on money, just buy three stables (but bare in mind you will need to 
buy at least one more stable later on). 
 
Fly in the Highwind to the northern continent to the Chocobo Sage's 
house (the house surrounded by grass to the northwest of the farm. 
Fight in this area (on the grass) until you fight a red 
dragon/dinosaur type thing. You'll know what it is as I'm pretty sure 
the only other things you fight there are some things that look like 
squirrels. Have someone equipped with Steal and steal a Carob Nut 
from it. End the battle one way or the other and repeat until you 
have 3 Carob Nuts. 
 
Get back in the ship and fly to the Gold Saucer. There are Chocobo 
tracks, catch a Chocobo here, (see above). Dismount the Chocobo and 
when the option appears select 'Send the Chocobo back to the 
stables'. Its a good idea to catch 4 Chocobos here and send them all 
back to the stables before returning to the Chocobo farm. Save before 
you enter. 
 
Talk to Choco Billy in the stables and pick the 'Moving Chocobos' 
option. You will cycle through the Chocobo's you have in the fenced 
area in front of the stables. Choco Billy will rate the Chocobo's you 
have caught. You will need a 'good' Chocobo (they will be walking 
when you see them), not an average (which is standing still) or 
anything worse (with it's head down). Before moving the Chocobo into 
the stable, you will find out it's gender and name it. You will need 
a male one. If your only 'good' Chocobo is a female, you can reset 
from where you saved outside as gender is determined randomly. You 
should release all other Chocobo's from the pen when you have moved 
the 'good' one into a stable, by selecting 'Moving Chocobos' again, 
but instead of putting them in, choose to let them go.  
 
If you have a 'good' male Chocobo from the area near Gold Saucer, fly 
to the Southern continent and land near where Cloud is found in Disc 
2, Mideel. There are Chocobo tracks nearby. Catch another 4 Chocobo's 
here, see above on how to catch one, then fly back to the Chocobo 
farm. You can again save incase of wrong gender. 
 
Again go the stable and choose to move a Chocobo into a stable. You 
will need a 'great' one this time, (they will be running when you see 
them) and the gender needs to be a female. Again release all 
Chocobo's from the pen when you have finished moving them.  
 
You should now have two yellow Chocobo's in your stable. Go outside 
and save -very important to do so as you probably need to reset a few 
times before producing the right type of offspring. Return to the 
stables. Talk to Choco Billy and choose 'Mating Chocobos'. Go to the 
individual stables of your two Chocobo and 'talk' to them using O. 
When you have selected both, pick the top option, then choose to 
breed with the Carob Nut (which you stole from the red dino deally on 
the north continent). Then choose the top option to breed them. 
 
You should have got a green Chocobo. If you got a blue or yellow 
Chocobo, you will need to reset and breed again. Refer to the above 
paragraph on how to breed. You will need to take note of your 
Chocobo's gender. 
 
You won't be able to breed the yellow Chocobo's again for a while 
(come on, they're not machines!!) or breed the green Chocobo yet. So 
you can either wait for a while and get on with the storyline, or 
simply release your two yellow Chocobos (by choosing 'Releasing 
Chocobos' and selecting the two yellow ones), and catching two more 
from the same areas (see above). It doesn't matter which way you do 
it, but you will need to buy another stable for 10,000 gil. Again use 
the Carob Nut when breeding either your new yellow Chocobos or the 
existing ones. If you caught new ones. they will still need to be the 
'good' male, and 'great' female. 
 
Anyway, eventually, you should have a green and blue Chocobo, of 
different genders. You should have two stables free by the way, if 
not, release your yellow ones. In the Highwind, fly back to the area 
where you stole the Carob Nuts and enter the house. Talk to the guy 
here and choose to buy something. Buy either 20 or 40 of the Sylkis 
Greens (they cost 5000 Gil each) depending on how much money you 
have. (You will need 40 eventually, but can do with just 20 at the 
moment). If you are low on money, you can go to the area northeast of 
Mideel, on the Southern Continent. There is a mountain on an island, 
with two beaches on each side. On the beach to the right you can 
fight Sandworms that are quite easy to beat for 5000 Gil, allowing 
you to buy one Sylkis Green. It is a bit monotonous, but a good place 
to earn money, I think. 
 
Go back to the Chocobo Farm and talk to Choco Billy again. Choose 
'Feeding Chocobos' and give 10 Sylkis Greens to your green Chocobo, 
and 10 to you blue Chocobo, by changing the number of greens to feed 
them with the up and down button and then press O twice to feed the 
Chocobo's. 
 
Go to North Corel. Use the ropeway to get to the Gold Saucer. 
Purchase a single ticket and go to the Chocobo Square. Talk to the 
girl (Ester?) who is standing in front of the Staffroom door. Choose 
to race, then choose either your blue or green Chocobo. Pick the top 
option twice and press Start at the Chocobo stats screen to begin the 
race. If you have either Tifa or Cid in your team, sometimes they 
will ask to ride the Chocobo instead of Cloud. 
 
Your Chocobo starts off with a C ranking, you need to improve this to 
an A ranking by winning races. If you just let the Automatic Sequence 
race for you, you are very likely to win every race. If you choose to 
do manual control hold R1, R2 and square to go faster and not 
decrease stamina. It usually takes about 3 winning races to go up a 
ranking. Race your Chocobo's until they are both at an A ranking or 
higher. 
 
NOTE: When your win a race, you will win an item. You can choose to 
take the item or the GP. I highly recommend taking the GP, as you 
will be racing a lot and will gain a lot of GP. You will very likely 
gain at least 300 GP while racing your green and blue Chocobos to A 
ranking. When you have 300 GP go the Wonder Square and exchange your 
GP for a Gold Ticket, which gives you an unlimited pass to the Gold 
Saucer. This is very useful as you will be returning here again to 
race other Chocobos, so allows your to save your money for greens. 
 
When you are done and both Chocobo's are at an A ranking, leave the 
Gold Saucer and return to the Chocobo farm. Save outside. Go to the 
barn, talk to Choco Billy and choose to mate your green and blue 
Chocobo's together, using a Carob Nut. Refer above on the specifics. 
Hopefully, you will have bred a black Chocobo. If not reset and try 
again. Take note of your black Chocobo's gender. 
 
Fly to the elongated island with a forest on it to the northeast of 
the Chocobo farm. If you have learned the Goblin Punch Enemy Skill, 
it is the same place you learned that. Wander around in the forest 
until you enter a battle with a Goblin (it has boxing gloves on). 
Steal a Zeio Nut from it, you only need one.  
 
Now fly to the west side of the Northern Continent. There are Chocobo 
tracks in the snow near here. You will need to land the Highwind on 
the grass nearby. Catch 4 Chocobo's here. See at the top for how to 
catch a Chocobo. Return to the Chocobo farm. Save before entering the 
farm. Check your caught Chocobo's in the pen for a 'great' or 
'wonderful' Chocobo. It must be the opposite gender to your black 
Chocobo. You will also need to buy another stable or release your 
green and blue Chocobo's. You may also want to save outside again, so 
you don't have to re-capture your yellow Chocobo. 
 
Now you may need to return to the Chocobo Sage's house on the 
Northern Continent. If you bought 40 Sylkis Greens from him before 
you can skip this bit, but if you just bought 20, you will need to 
return to him to buy another 20 Sylkis Greens. If you are low on 
money go to where I told you before to make some money.  
 
Return to Chocobo Farm. Feed 10 of the Sylkis Greens to your black 
Chocobo and 10 to your yellow Chocobo. Refer above on how to do this. 
 
Now you need to return to Gold Saucer and race both your black and 
yellow Chocobos to A rank or higher. Refer above for racing tips. 
When they are at A rank or higher, return to Chocobo Farm. Again save 
outside before entering. 
 
Go into the barn and speak to Choco Billy and choose to mate your 
black Chocobo with your new yellow Chocobo. Use the Zeio Nut. Wait 
until the next morning and hopefully you got a ................dum 
dum duuuum......GOLD Chocobo!!!! 
 
This is where you wonder whether it was all worth it. Well let me 
tell you it is, for with your brand-spanking gorgeous Gold Chocobo, 
you can get the best Summon materia in the game, the Knights of the 
Round. To do so read on: 
 
Talk to Choco Billy and pick the option 'Riding Chocobos' and pick 
your Gold Chocobo. Ride over to the Highwind, and press 'O' to get on 
with your chocobo. Park the Highwind on the Goblin Island (its the 
island to the northeast of the eastern continent), and ride the 
chocobo north-northeast from there to a mountain and forested island, 
that isn't on the map. Go into cave and grab the ultimate summon 
materia....Knights of the Round!!!!! 

---------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------7. ULTIMATE WEAPONS [UW]----------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------7.1 Cloud---------------------------------

Fight and defeat Ultima Weapon. In Disc 2, after you defeat Diamond 
WEAPON, Ultima WEAPON will be hovering over the lake by Junon Town. 
Save and rest in the Highwind, then fly into it. You will have to 
fight it from the deck of the Highwind. He's pretty east to beat so 
just use Summon's and good magic and when you inflict enough damage, 
he will fly out of the battle. When the view returns to the World 
Map, be sure to see what direction he flies off in. You need to 
follow him, and ram him a few times. Eventually he will fly off to a 
new location. Follow him, and when he stops, rest and save again. The 
fly into him and fight again. Continue this, saving before each fight 
because if you don't see where he flew off to, you can reset and 
fight again, and hopefully take more notice! He usually settles over 
the main locations, such as Midgar, The Northern Cave and Nibelhiem. 
Eventually he will stop over Cosmo Canyon. This will be the final 
fight and might be harder than the rest. After he dies, there will be 
a huge crater behind Cosmo Canyon, allowing you to get to the Ancient 
Forest behind. You'll then get the Ultima Weapon for Cloud. This 
weapon seems to do more damage if Cloud has more health. 
 
-----------------------7.2 Barret------------------------------- 

Before fighting Hojo and after defeating Proud Clod, go up the stairs 
to the second landing. There will be a green chest here only if you 
have Barret in your team. You'll get the Missing Score; this weapon 
will do more damage if the materia equipped to it has lots of AP. 
 
-----------------------7.3 Tifa--------------------------------- 

After Cloud rejoins the team in Disc 2, go back to Midgar and a man 
will be standing outside the town, talk to him to learn about a 
missing key. Go to Bone Village on the northern continent and choose 
to excavate "good treasure" then place diggers if you like (but it's 
not necessary) and have them dig near a small piece of metal sticking 
out of the wrecked plane near the entrance (it's across from the 
blocked door where the man is standing). In the morning, check the 
treasure chest, and you should get the Key to Sector 5. With the key 
in your possession, return to Midgar. Once inside go to Wall Market, 
you can get Tifa's best weapon, the Premium Heart, from the item shop 
with the machine that shot at you earlier. I think you need to go 
here with Cloud, Tifa and Cid. This weapon will do more damage if 
Tifa's Limit Break bar is filled up. Use you Limit Break but miss on 
one of the wheels. The Premiuim Heart should now power up. 
 
-------------------------7.4 Red XIII--------------------------------

On Disc 3 go back to Cosmo Canyon. Go to the second floor of the 
observertory. You will need to have Red XIII in your team. Red and 
Bugen Hagen will talk for a while, then Bugen Hagen will give Red his 
Ultimate Weapon, the Limited Moon. He will then die. Red will rejoin 
the party at the bonfire. You may also want to pick up the Full Cure 
materia, Elixer and Magic Source from the Item Shop (go down the 
passage to the right that was previously blocked by a red rope).

------------------------------7.5 Cid--------------------------------

In Rocket Town, in Disc 3, repeatedly talk to the old guy looking at 
the rocket. Eventually he'll give you Cid's Ultimate Weapon, the 
Venus Gospel.
 
-----------------------------7.6 Aeris------------------------------- 

In the Temple of the Ancients, when you reach the area with the 
clock, go down passage IV and in the chest is Aeris's Ultimate 
Weapon, the Princess Guard. 
 
---------------------------7.7 Cait Sith-----------------------------

Go to the Shinra building in Disc 2 and search the lockers on the 
64th floor. You can now take the megaphone there which is the HP 
Shout. The more HP remaining, the stronger it is. 
 
-----------------------------7.8 Vincent-----------------------------

See Side Quests, Vincent's Waterfall. 
 
------------------------------7.9 Yuffie----------------------------- 

Use the submarine to go to the wreck of the Shinra plane underwater. 
To get there go to Junon and head west until you reach a penisula. Go 
around it and head south until you reach the land. There'll be a dock 
nearby and you should be able to see the Gold Saucer. Submerge and 
you should see a wrecked plane on the seabed. Touch it to enter. Go 
into the room to the north on the first screen. In the upper left 
corner of the room with the chests in on the lower level, hidden by a 
pipe is a chest. Inside will be the Conformer, Yuffie's Ultimate 
Weapon. I think this weapon is more powerful if Yuffie is fighting an 
enemy with a higher level than her.

-------------------------14. ENEMY SKILLS [ENS]----------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

For enemy skills, you need an enemy skills materia equipped, (you can 
get them from many places eg: after fighting the boss in Shinra HQ 
(after meeting Red XIII) its in the sample chamber, in the Ancient 
City when you rest and Cloud wakes up in the middle of the night, its 
behind the headboard of the third bed, and I think you can get one by 
talking to the green chocobo when you first visit the Chocobo Sage.  
For some enemy skills, especially ones that cure you, you should use 
a Manipulate materia (from Cait Sith) to control the intended enemy 
and get it to use the desired skill on the character with the enemy 
skill materia equipped.

---STAR 01 - FROG SONG---

5 MP 
Transforms all foes into frogs and puts them to sleep. 

From the green frogs (Touch Me) in the circular forest near Gongaga 
Town.

---STAR 02 - L4 SUICIDE---

10 MP 
All enemies with an experience level that is a multiple of 4 loses 
almost all their HP (you can't kill an enemy with this spell--the 
best you can do is reduce their HP to one point). In addition, they 
may be afflicted with the 'Minimum' status. 

Burrowing squirrel-like foes (Mu) found near the Chocobo Farm. 

---STAR 03 - MAGIC HAMMER---

3 MP
Hit an enemy on the head and gain up to 100 MP (assuming the monster 
has enough MP). 

Plant-like monsters (Razor Weed) found on the tip of the Westernmost 
Continent (in the dark grass). 

---STAR 04 - WHITE WIND---

34 MP 
Each ally regains lost HP and their status ailments are cured and 
dispelled. The amount of HP recovered depends on the current HP of 
the caster. 

The white and green cactus-like monsters (Zemzelett) in the grassy 
area by Junon Town.

---STAR 05 - BIG GUARD---

56 MP 
Has the same effect as casting Haste, Barrier, and MBarrier on all 
your allies. Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeryyy useful!!

The spiky, shelled creatures with green tentacles (Beach Plug) that 
live on the shore near the Gongaga Town. 

---STAR 06 - ANGEL WHISPER----

50 MP
All allies revived, relieve status ailments anmd restore HP. Probably 
best enemy skill, especially later in the game.

From the beckoning women in the yellow swimsuits (Polan Solita) you 
meet in the Northern Crater if you take the right path the first time 
you meet your friends. 

---STAR 07 - DRAGON FORCE---

19 MP 
Increases your physical and Magic Plus defense rating. 

From the dragons (Dark Dragon) you meet during the descent into the 
Northern Crater. 

---STAR 08 - DEATH FORCE--- 

3 MP 
One ally becomes immune to instant death attacks, like Death 
Sentence, not if you die from getting KO'd.

The huge tusked turtles (Adamantaimai) by the shoreline of the 
Westmost Continent. 

---STAR 09 - FLAME THROWER---

10 MP 
Fire damage (obviously). 

From any enemy that utilises a fire breath attack. Like the dragons 
you fight in the area of Mt.Nibel before fighting the Materia Keeper. 
You can also learn it from the flying yellow monsters (Ark Dragon) in 
the Mythril Mine. 

---STAR 10 - LASER---

16 MP 
Reduces an enemy's HP by one-half. 

From Death Claw in the Corel Prison. Or, the Dark Dragons in the 
Northern Crater.  

---STAR 11 - MATRA MAGIC---

8 MP 
Fire a pack of missiles at one enemy for magic damage. 

Machines with big feet and guns for arms (Sweeper Custom) around 
Junon Town. Or from the wheeled robo-creatures in the underwater part 
of Junon Town. 

---STAR 12 - BAD BREATH---

58 MP 
Inflict multiple status ailments upon all enemies, including 
Confusion, Frog, Mini, Mute, Poison, and Sleepel. 

From the Mobor creatures (green guys with tentacles and really big 
mouths) living on the outside ledges in Gaea's Cliff. You can also 
meet them in the Northern Crater, if you take the right path the 
first time you run into your friends. Have Ribbons equipped!!!

---STAR 13 - BETA---

35 MP 
All targets are hit for damage. 

The big shadow snake (Midgar Zolom) in the marsh near the Chocobo 
Farm. 
You will need to inflict heavy damage before the Zolom starts to sway 
back and forth and then it should then use Beta. I strongly suggest 
that you wait until about Disc 2 or 3 before attempting to learn 
Beta, as you probably won't survive it in the earlier part of the 
game when you first meet it.

---STAR 14 - AQUALUNG---

34 MP 
Blue bubbles strike all enemies for water damage. 

From the Jenova Birth in the Forgotten Capital, (hard to learn from 
Jenova as it will most likely kill all of your party in one go), the 
Harpy in the plains surrounding the Gold Saucer; or from the floating 
sea-dragon creature (Serpent) in the sunken plane near the Gold 
Saucer. 
 
---STAR 15 - TRINE---

20 MP 
Hits all enemies for lighting damage. 

Probably best enemy to learn this off is the Materia Keeper in 
Mt.Nibel a it uses it more often that other enemies but you can also 
learn it from Godo, of the pagoda's top floor in Wutai. Also from the 
red spider/crab-like creature (Stilve) living inside the Frozen 
Mountain.

---STAR 16 - MAGIC BREATH---

75 MP 
Hits all foes for fire, ice, and lighting damage. 

From the red spider/crab-like creatures (Stilve) living inside the 
Frozen Mountain. Also from the blue, leech-like enemies (Parasite) in 
the Northern Crater. 

---STAR 17 - ????---

3 MP 
A weight drops and hits for special damage. The amount is equal to 
the amount of damage the caster has received in battle. 

From the balance-like creatures (Jersey) in Nibelheim. Also from the 
purple behemoths (Behemoth) you encounter when raiding Midgar City. 
Keep in mind that you won't actually learn this skill unless you take 
damage from it. 

---STAR 18 - GOBLIN PUNCH---

0 MP 
One foe is hit for physical damage. The damage inflicted is 
multiplied if your opponent has the same EXP level that you do. 

Imp-like monsters wearing boxing gloves (Goblin) found on the only 
forested island in the northeast area of the map. 

---STAR 19 - CHOCOBUCKLE---

3 MP 
A fat chocobo bounces around and hits one foe for special damage. 
This attack gains strength each time you flee from a battle. 

Go to the Chocobo Farm. Talk to the man in the barn and choose the 
first choice. The 5th item from the top costs 1500 gil; purchase 
three of them (Mimett Greens). Then go to the chocobo tracks on the 
Southern Continent near the forest (by Mideel), or by the first 
Chocobo farm near Kalm town. Equip yourself with a Chocobo Lure 
materia. When you encounter a chocobo, kill off all but one of the 
other enemies and use the item you bought 3 of on the chocobo (it 
looks like an orange squash). This will make the chocobo peck at the 
ground. At any time after that point (whether or not the chocobo is 
still pecking), use the L4 Suicide skill and you may get hit by the 
Chocobuckle. 

---STAR 20 - L5 DEATH---

22 MP 
Any enemy whose level is a multiple of 5 is instantly killed. 

From the blue, leech-like enemies (Parasite) in the Northern Crater. 

---STAR 21 - DEATH SENTENCE---

10 MP 
One enemy is Condemned (they die when the counter over their head 
reaches zero). 

The yellow, spiked enemies (Bound Fat) that live in front of and in 
the area behind the Forgotten Capital. 

---STAR 22 - DEATH ROULETTE---

6 MP 
One friend or foe is randomly killed. 

From the floating card-jesters (Death Dealer) in the Northern Crater 
if you take the right path the first time you meet your friends. 

---STAR 23 - SHADOW FLARE---

100 MP 
A black flare hits a single opponent for magic damage. 

From the Ultimate Weapon in Disc 3; it uses it as a counterattack 
before dying. Or, learn it from the Dragon Zombies in the Northern 
Crater. 

---STAR 24 - PANDORA'S BOX---

110 MP 
A star field and question mark appear; hits all enemies for physical 
damage. 

From the huge, multi-limbed bone dragons (Dragon Zombie) in the 
Northern Crater if you take the right path the first time you meet 
your friends. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------15. MONSTERS [MON1]-----------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------16. WEAPON STRATEGIES [WEA2]-----------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

 --------------------
| 16.1 - RUBY WEAPON |
 --------------------

Ruby WEAPON only appears after you beat Ultimate Weapon in Disc 2.  
You can find it in the sand under the Gold Saucer on the World Map.  
It's the red thing that pops up every now and then. You can either 
walk into it, fly into it with the Highwind or ride into it on a Gold 
Chocobo.

You're probably gonna need a load of HP for this fight (around 9000, 
although it can be done at lower), but if you follow this sequence 
you should be automatically healed with HP Absorb so it shouldn't 
matter too much. 

Firstly obtain the following materia: Mime, Knights of the Round, HP 
Absorb, Hades, Quadra Magic and probably W-Summon.  For the locations 
of these materia refer to section 10. Materia and 5. Side Quests, 5.6 
- Materia Cave Locations.

You should also get the Apocalypse sword from the Ancient Forest (See 
Side Quests, 5.10 - Ancient Forest) as it has triple growth, so 
instead of getting 50,000 AP at the end of the Ruby fight, you'll get 
150,000 AP!

Equip the sword to Cloud and equip the KOTR summon linked with HP 
Absorb.  Also link Hades with Quadra Magic and put Mime and W-Summon 
on there as well. Don't worry about the other characters.

After you've got all these materia, go into a normal battle, not the 
Ruby one and kill off the other two party members apart from Cloud.  
This is to stop Ruby from using it's Quicksand attack which 
eliminates one living party member from the battle, but if you only 
enter the fight with one character, Ruby won't cast it. Exit the 
battle leaving the two characters dead and save your game.

Now enter the Ruby fight.  At the beginning it will dig it's claw's 
into the sand and they will come up behind you.  These can attack you 
every now and then and take some of your MP. Now W-Summon KOTR and 
Hades.  Hades will be cast four times and will eventually paralyse 
Ruby and it's claws, (which will also be poisoned hopefully) leaving 
KOTR to dish out the damage.  After that summon, the HP Absorb will 
give to 9000 or so HP from Ruby, negating the need for healing.  Now 
keep miming that cycle of w-summoning Hades and KOTR.

 -----------------------
| 16.2 - EMERALD WEAPON |
 -----------------------

Emerald is definitely the harder of the two WEAPONS, and you get to 
fight this one with all three of your characters this time.  Due to 
AP from Ruby, you should have a second Mime as well.  Keep the same 
materia as for Ruby except take off Hades and Quadra Magic, just give 
the second character the other Mime, and if you have a third Mime, 
give it to the third character.

Before fighting this WEAPON, you'll also need the Underwater materia.  
You can get this by morphing a Ghost Ship in the tunnel to the 
underwater Junon reactor, for which you will get a Guidebook. Take 
this to the Kalm traveller to get the Underwater materia (See Side 
Quests, 5.9 - Kalm Traveller).  This will take off the 20 minute time 
limit for fighting Emerald WEAPON.

Don't give anyone any Counter Attack materia's for this setup to 
work.  You may also want to put Master Summon (by mastering all 
summons and going to see Bugenhagen) linked with MP Turbo to do more 
damage.

Equip Knights of the round linked with HP Absorb on Cloud.  Also give 
him a Mime materia and the W-Summon materia.  

Give the second Mime materia to your second strongest character, as 
well as the Underwater materia.  Give the third Mime (if you have it) 
to your last character, or just have them with high HP and no materia 
on them!  This is because one of Emerald's attacks is called Aire Tam 
Storm, which is Materia backwards (aside from the Storm bit) and this 
attack deals damage compared to how much materia you have equipped, 
so the less, the better.  Make sure you only have these materia 
equipped, no curing if you can help it.  You should also have all 
characters at about 9000 HP.

Emerald WEAPON swims about underwater near the sunken Shinra plane 
(Gelnika).  To get there go to the docking bay near the Gold Saucer, 
west of Junon, around the peninsula.  Submerge and you should see the 
plane on the sea bed.  Enter the plane but then exit it.  Emerald 
should be standing in front of you.  If not pilot the submarine 
around the area here and Emerald should be swimming around, it's big 
and green!

Ram into it and in the battle, have Cloud W-Summon Knights of the 
Round.  He should absorb the damage done due to the HP Absorb; this 
stops the need for curing.  Then have the second character with the 
Mime materia, mime the previous command.  If you had a third Mime, 
get the third character to Mime too.  If not, just have them defend 
or something.  Continue doing this and Emerald should go down pretty 
darn quick!  Don't worry of the third character dies, only when Cloud 
or the second character does, which they shouldn't if you follow the 
setup.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
------------17. HOW TO DATE YUFFIE AT THE GOLD SAUCER [YKGS]---------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

It's easy to date Aeris and even Tifa if you try, but getting the 
date at the Gold Saucer with Yuffie can be pretty hard, so here's a 
step by step on how to assure the date with Yuffie.

Don't buy a flower from Aeris when you first see her in Sector 8. 

Talk to Jessie twice on the train home from Sector 8, and tell her 
you're "Looking forward to it". 

Don't talk to Tifa while she's behind the bar. If you do, decline her 
offer for a drink. 

Say "...Sorry" when she asks you if you've forgotten your promise. 

Ignore Tifa the next morning; don't talk to her, and go straight to 
Barret. 

Get caught by the Security Lockdown; do not reach the end of the 
train. Force Barret and Tifa to jump
out early this way. 

After defeating Airbuster, before Cloud falls, tell Barret to "Be 
strong". 

When Aeris is fleeing the guards, climb up to the top level and tell 
her to "Wait" each time. Then, push the wrong barrel (so that she has 
to fight the guard anyway). Do this three times. 

When Aeris asks if Tifa is your girlfriend, say "Yeah, that's right." 

When you get to the playground in Sector 6, tell Aeris that you'll 
"Take her home." 

Get none of the best items so that Tifa is chosen for the Don's date. 
When you meet Aeris outside the Don's office, tell her "We gotta help 
Tifa!" 

When everyone lands in the sewer, talk to Aeris first. 

When Marlene asks you how you feel about Aeris, tell her "I don't 
know". 

When you first meet Red XIII, tell Tifa to take care of Aeris (keep 
Barret in your party for this
battle). 

After the battle with HO512, split up into a team of Cloud, Barret 
and Red XIII. 

When Tifa asks if you can break out, tell her "(Kinda hard)" 

Think about Red XIII first, Barret second, and Aeris last while 
you're in the cell. 

When you finally escape Midgar and have to choose your team, pick a 
team with Cloud, Barret and Red XIII. 

In Kalm, after the flashback, tell Barret to "Wait a sec", then "Is 
that all?" 

Make a party immediately afterwards with Cloud, Aeris and Tifa. In a 
house in Kalm, there's a woman who asks you about whether Mako energy 
is convenient. Tell her "Yeah, maybe". Talk to the girl
upstairs, and when she asks you if the old life is better, say "No 
way". 

In Fort Condor, disagree twice to the old guy about his plight. After 
that, you can go into Fort Condor and agree then, but that's up to 
you. 

Find Yuffie in Junon Forest. Get her into your party. 

On the Cargo Ship, give Yuffie a tranquilliser. (Make sure you bought 
one in Junon Town.) 

On the Cargo Ship, tell Aeris "I dunno..." when she asks about the 
Airship. 

On the Cargo Ship, when Tifa asks you about war, say "I don't know". 

At the Gold Saucer, when you split up, talk to Yuffie first, and take 
her with you (do not choose Aeris or Tifa). 

When you see Barret again in the Corel Prison, and you're about to go 
after Dyne, you will be prompted to make a party. Choose Cloud, 
Barret, and Yuffie.

Before entering Gongaga Town, make your party into Cloud, Aeris and 
Tifa. Then, when you meet Zack's parents, and Aeris and Tifa leave, 
ignore *both* of them and leave town. 

Complete the Wutai side quest (See Side Quests, 5.4 - Yuffie's Side 
Quest) and let Yuffie steal your Materia.  After you get the Materia 
back, go straight to the Gold Saucer for the date sequence.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
------------18. HOW TO DATE BARRET AT THE GOLD SAUCER [BWGS]---------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, yes you CAN date Barret at the Gold Saucer and it's even harder 
than the Yuffie one as, well Barret kinda hates you at the beginning 
of the game.  Here's how to get the date with him:

Buy a flower from Aeris when you see her in Sector 8. 

Talk to Jessie twice on the train home from Sector 8, and tell her 
you're "Looking forward to it". 

Give the flower to Marlene when you get the option. 

Don't talk to Tifa while she's behind the bar. If you do, decline her 
offer for a drink. 

Say "...Sorry" when she asks you if you've forgotten your promise. 

Say "Barret's snoring kept me up..." when she asks you how you slept 
the next morning. 

Don't get caught by the Security Lockdown; get to the end of the 
train. 

After defeating Airbuster, before Cloud falls, tell Barret to "Be 
strong". 

When Aeris is fleeing the guards, climb up to the top level and tell 
her to Wait each time. Then, push the wrong barrel (so that she has 
to fight the guard anyway). Do this three times. 

When Aeris asks if Tifa is your girlfriend, say "Yeah, that's right." 

When you get to the playground in Sector 6, tell Aeris that you'll 
"Take her home." 

Get all the best items so that Cloud is chosen for the Don's date 
(not Tifa or Aeris). Tell the Don that there's someone else, and when 
he asks who, tell him "Yes, his name's Barret..." 

When everyone lands in the sewer, talk to Aeris first. 

When Marlene asks you how you feel about Aeris, tell her "I don't 
know". 

When you first meet Red XIII, tell Barret to take care of Aeris (keep 
Tifa in your party for this battle). 

After the battle with HO512, split up into a team of Cloud, Barret 
and Red XIII. 

When Tifa asks if you can break out, tell her "(Kinda hard)" 

Think about Barret first, Red XIII second, and Aeris last while 
you're in the cell. 

When you finally escape Midgar and have to choose your team, pick a 
team with Cloud, Barret and Red XIII.

In Kalm, after the flashback, tell Barret to "Wait a sec", then 
"Beautiful, just beautiful!" 

Make a party immediately afterwards with Barret, Cloud and Red XIII. 
In a house in Kalm, there's a woman who asks you about whether Mako 
energy is convenient. Tell her "You're full of it". Talk to the girl
upstairs, and when she asks you if the old life is better, say "Yeah, 
maybe". 

In Fort Condor, agree twice to the old guy about his plight. 

You don't have to meet Yuffie; in fact, it's probably better if you 
don't. If you do want to get her, get her the first time you try and 
don't make her run away. 

On the Cargo Ship, don't give Yuffie a tranquilliser. 

On the Cargo Ship, tell Aeris "I dunno..." when she asks about the 
Airship. 

On the Cargo Ship, when Tifa asks you about war, say "I don't know". 

At the Gold Saucer, when you split up, talk to Red XIII first, and 
take him with you (do not choose Aeris, Tifa or Yuffie). 

When you see Barret again in the Corel Prison, and you're about to go 
after Dyne, you will be prompted to make a party. Choose Cloud, 
Barret, and either Red XIII or Cait Sith. DO NOT CHOOSE
AERIS!

Before entering Gongaga Town, make your party into Cloud, Aeris and 
Tifa. Then, when you meet Zack's parents, and Aeris and Tifa leave, 
ignore both of them and leave town. 

Do not go anywhere near Wutai if you have Yuffie. Instead, go 
straight to the Gold Saucer for the date sequence. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------19. MINI GAMES/GOLD SAUCER [MGGS]---------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 --------------------------
| 19.1 - THE WONDER SQUARE |
 --------------------------

In the Wonder are a load of mini games that you can play to win GP 
mainly, which can also be exchanged here for various prizes.

1GP = Potion 
20GP = Ether 
80GP = X-Potion 
100GP = Turbo Ether 
300GP = Gold Ticket (unlimited access to Gold Saucer)
500GP = Carob Nut 
1000GP = Gil Plus 
2000GP = EXP Plus

---SUBMARINE GAME---

This game isn't available until after you've stolen your own 
submarine and fought with a Shinra submarine. Before the game begins 
you're given 5 choices. You can either re-enact the battle  
at the Mako Reactor or you can choose from four original levels. The 
levels get progressively harder by increasing either the amount of 
enemy subs or the ability and toughness of the enemy commanders.  
The amount of GP you receive is the same regardless of difficulty 
level. 

Press Square to shoot torpedoes, X to decrease speed and Triangle to 
increase speed. During a battle you can fire as many as four 
torpedoes at a time. Try and lock onto an enemy then unload the whole 
group, which is normally enough to take out an enemy sub. On higher 
levels, however, it takes a few more shots. Missiles have a 
relatively short range, so get close before opening fire. If the 
enemy gets a lock on you, speed up and dive deep. This will normally 
shake torpedoes off your tail. Mines are the small polygons on top of 
the square columns. You can pass through the columns without taking 
damage, but don't go to high. Be careful when you enter the sonar 
screens - you don't want to accidentally hit a mine. Use your sonar 
to help better prepare you for what lies ahead and help relocate the 
enemy submarines. If you lose track of an enemy on the sonar, exit 
and re-enter the sonar screen. It's faster than waiting for the next 
sonar pulse. For winning a battle, you receive 20GP and an item. 

Underwater Huge Materia Battle: Ink  
Level 1: T/S Bomb 
Level 2: Dragon Fang 
Level 3: Dragon Scales  
Level 4: Cauldron  
 
---ARM-WRESTLING GAME--- 

Arm wrestle one of two opponents to receive a small amount of gil. 
The Sumo Wrestler is easier than the Wrestler. Quickly tap the Square 
button to pin your opponent's arm, you get 1 Gil for beating the Sumo 
and 2 Gil for the Wrestler. If you have an Autofire controller you 
can set Autofire to Square and easily win.  
 
---MOG HOUSE GAME--- 

The first time you win at 'Mog House' the person standing behind you 
will give you 30 GP. To make Mog fly, you need to feed him the right 
amount of Carob Nuts.  When you can feed him, give him a Nut until he 
jumps up; don't overfeed him. 
 
---BASKETBALL GAME--- 

The only tip on this is to try and get into a rhythm of how hard you 
press the button and not change it.  The first 10 dunks in a row are 
worth 1 GP, the 11th will double that amount to 20 GP. This continues 
as follows: 22nd will go to 30GP, next ten double to 60, next ten to 
70, next 10 double to 140, next ten to 150 and the last ten double to 
300GP.  You then can't go any further.
 
---MOTORBIKE GAME--- 

Press Square to attack left and O to attack right, protecting the 
truck, just like when you do this mini game during the actual plot.  
If you manage to score over 10,000 points you'll earn 10 GP as 
opposed to the usual 2 GP.  Also the first time to complete this (at 
the Gold Saucer) you get a Speed Plus materia.  
 
---WONDER CATCHER GAME---

This is a pretty random thing, but you can get some prizes from the 
Wonder Catcher, such as 1 GP, 3 GP, a Potion, 80 GP but usually 
you'll get nothing.
  
---3D BATTLER GAME---

You need to punch the other guy out, but you yourself can only be hit 
10 times before being knocked out.  It can be very difficult to get 
to the last guy (looks invisible, the one after the super hero guy) 
but you get 300GP at the end.

---SNOWBOARDING GAME---

There are three snowboarding courses; Beginner, Expert and Crazy. The 
challenge increases by adding additional obstacles, increasing the 
speed and tightening the turns. Throughout the course there are 
balloons:  
Red: 1 Point  
Blue: 3 Points  
Green: 5 Points  
You can get technique points according to how well you perform. If 
you make it through that course without hitting a wall you get a 
perfect score. Not all things deduct points; for example, you can  
hit a Mog while it's on it's sled and not lose points, but if you hit 
it's after it's fallen off it's sled you lose one point. Do well on a 
course and you'll pick up a little GP and an item. If you find  
a yellow balloon at the beginning of a course you'll enter Time 
Attack mode. Set the record and then try to top your score as you 
race the Mog Ghost.  

If Tifa or Cid is in your party, they'll randomly ask if they can 
play in your place. The ranks in the normal courses are BAD (0-49), 
AWFUL (50-69), and GOOD (70-100)

 --------------------------
| 19.2 - THE BATTLE SQUARE |
 --------------------------

The prizes for Disc One are: 
100 BP - Phoenix Down 
200 BP - Remedy 
400 BP -Mimmett Greens 
800 BP - Enemy Lure 
1,600 BP - Bird Wing 
3,200 BP - S Wing 
6,400 BP - Pre-Emptive 
12,800 BP - Speed Plus 
32,000 BP - Championship Belt 
64,000 BP - Omnislash (1 only) 

And on Disc 2/3:

100 BP - Remedy
250 BP - Enemy Lure
500 BP - Right Arm

8,000 BP - Stardust 
16,000 BP - Championship Belt
32,000 BP - Omnislash (1 only)
64,000 BP - W-Summon (1 only)

Here you can fight 8 consecutive battles, with one character, for a 
price of 10GP.  You should use your best character, and equip them 
with a Ribbon, Slash-All materia, their Ultimate Weapon (See 7. 
Ultimate Weapons), the Big Guard Enemy Skill and some high level 
spell/summon materia's including Cure and Regen.  Don't rely on the 
materia too much, and if you're at a high enough level, physical 
attacks will see off the first few rounds easily.  

At the end of each round, a slot machine will come up and you have to 
stop it to determine the handicap.  The handicaps are as follows:

Black Blobs - Poisons you.  
Frog - Turn the character into a frog.  
Mini-Cloud - Puts your character in Mini.  
Red Orb - Can't use Summon Materia.  
Yellow Orb - Can't use Command Materia.  
Green Orb - Can't use Magic Materia.  
Purple Orb - Can't use Independent Materia.  
Blue Orb - Can't use Support Materia.  
Five Orbs - Can't use all Materia.  
Ring - Can't use accessories.  
Item Bag - Can't use items. 
7 - No ailment for that round. 
Boots - Time is slowed, if in Haste, goes to normal.  If in normal, 
goes to slow.  
HP & MP - Max HP and MP is halved.  
MP - Max MP is halved.  
MP Zero - Max MP is reduced to 0.  
Sword - Attack power is lowered.  
Bracelet - Defence is lowered.  
Stopwatch - How long you spend in the battle is timed by 30 and 
dealed as damage.  
Lv. Down - Lowers level by what ever number is next to it.  
Cure - Cured by 9999 HP.

After you've gotten 64,000 BP and obtained Omnislash and W-Summon the 
special battle will be unlocked.  If you beat these 8 battles, with 
Proud Clod as the last enemy (can be easily taken down with Knights 
of the Round), you will get the Final Attack materia.  If you keep 
beating that battle, you will get various useless items, such as 
Autograph, Combat Diary and Masamune Blade.
 
 -------------------------
| 19.3 - THE SPEED SQUARE |
 -------------------------

In the Speed Square, you have to shoot down targets while riding in a 
roller coaster. The key to it is to remember is that firing with a 
full gauge is better than constantly firing a near-empty gauge, you u 
need to wait until the gauge refills.

Some good targets to hit are the red things out of the lava for 70 
points, the riverboat, one of the lights near the end gives you 200 
points and the UFO at the end gives you loads too.

Prizes from this square are: 

Over 3000 points - Masamune, Custom Sweeper, 1/35th soldier 
Over 5000 points - Umbrella (Disc 1), Flayer (Disc 2-3) You can earn 
multiple 1/35th soldiers here, too.

The Umbrella is for Aeris and the Flayer is for Cid.  These are well 
worth getting as they are more powerful than each character's 
Ultimate Weapons.

 -----------------------
| 19.4 - CHOCOBO RACING |
 -----------------------

The easiest way to win at the Races is to breed a Gold Chocobo (See 
6. Chocobo Breeding) and jockey that chocobo to victory.  If you race 
your chocobo up through the ranks (C, B, and A), then win 12 races in 
S Class you will win:
Sprint Shoes 
Precious Watch 
Cat's Bell 
Chocobracelet
Counter Attack Materia

To beat even Teioh (the chocobo who always has higher stats than 
you), select Manual control and hold R1, R2 and square.  This should 
keep you winning the races, despite opponent.  As with the 
snowboarding game, if you have Tifa or Cid in your party, they will 
occasionally ask to ride in Cloud's place.

 ------------------
| 19.4 Fort Condor |
 ------------------

NAME OF UNIT - COST - HP - STRENGTHS - WEAKNESSES

Attacker - 420Gil - 180 - Beast - Barbarian
Shooter - 520Gil - 160 - Wyvern - Beast
Defender - 440Gil - 220 - Barbarian - Wyvern
Stoner - 480Gil - 100 - None - None
Worker - 400Gil - 160 - None - None
Fighter - 400Gil - 200 - None - None
Catapult - 480Gil - 100 - None - None
Repairer - 480Gil - 160 - None - None
Tristoner - 1000Gil - 150 - None - None
Fire Catapult - 600Gil - 120 - None - None

In essence it's better to overwhelm the opposition rather than 
sitting back and letting them come to you. Take charge and move your 
troops south as soon as possible. You may even stop the enemy advance 
before the commander can reach the battlefield.  
 
Place a line of attackers, fighters, and defenders along the middle 
of the mountain. Back them up with shooters and repairers. As soon as 
the battle begins, move your troops south so that they meet the enemy 
as they arrive. This will keep the enemy hordes from regrouping and 
taking advantage of any weak spots in your defence. If any member of 
your team suffers serious damage, pull them back and have a repairer 
restore their HP. Slowly advance towards the bottom of the screen and 
eventually you'll have the entire path blocked. The enemy will soon 
give up and you'll have fewer casualties and a larger amount of Gil 
returned. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------20. TIPS AND SECRETS [TPS]--------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

 ------------------------
| 20.1 - NO BACK ATTACKS |
 ------------------------

If you enter a battle, even a boss battle, with your character's 
backs facing the enemies, simply press L1 and R1 as if to escape, but 
then let them go and you will be facing the enemy.  This is 
particularly useful for the boss battle with Motor Ball, after 
escaping the Shinra Headquarters.  You just need to do it quickly to 
avoid the higher damage from the back attack.

 --------------------
| 20.2 - ALL 7 FEVER |
 --------------------

Get any character's HP to 7777 and they will go berserk, and attack 
enemies for 7777 damage.  But after the battle, they will go down to 
1 HP.  A good way of getting 7777 HP is to first have you hp over 
7777. Then you are going to fight a battle against a weak enemy. Get 
your HP below 154, then use the cats bell to walk your HP up to be 
EXACTLY 154, then use a Demi2 attack on the person with 154 HP, your 
HP should be 77, just use 15 hi-potions, and two potions. 

 ------------------------
| 20.3 - UNLIMITED ITEMS |
 ------------------------

After you get the W-item materia, equip it on someone. When you are 
in the middle of a battle, select W-item and pick any item except 
weapons etc. that you wish to duplicate, then use it on someone. Then 
with your second item, pick the same item as before and then press 
the O button. Then press the X button to cancel the second item and 
your first item will increase by one. Every time you press the O 
button and the cancel with the X button, the first item increases by 
one.  This can get you 99 of any item, and is useful for getting 
Elixers for the Magic Pots in the Northern Cave.

 -------------------------------------
| 20.4 - SENSE WITHOUT WASTING A TURN |
 -------------------------------------

Press Select to display a window above the time bars, then sense the 
enemy. From this point on whenever you attack that enemy while 
selecting, look in that window to see its current HP and name.  This 
only works during the current battle. 

 ----------------------------------------------
| 20.5 - CAST MAGIC THREE TIMES ON AN OPPONENT |
 ----------------------------------------------

Cast Reflect on all allies, then cast an attack spell on all your 
characters, like a spell that hits all enemies.  The spell will then 
be reflected onto the opponent(s) three times.

 ------------------
| 20.6 - HP REFILL |
 ------------------

Cast Regen-All on your party, then quickly open the PlayStation lid 
when all opponents have been defeated. The game will be unable to 
load the victory screen, and may glitch while the HP for each party 
member fills. After everyone is at full health, close the lid to 
resume the game.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------21. FF7 CHALLENGES-------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Think beating FF7 a few times makes you a master at it? Oh no no, my 
misguided friend; here are some challenges that can give replay value 
and prove your might against all the others out there!

1. No Materia
- Yep, that's right, use no materia whatsoever during the entire 
game, not even when you think you have to (eg: Chocobo Lure, as you 
can make it over the marsh without using a Chocobo).

2. Complete the game with only initial weapons and armour on all 
characters.

3. No Save!
 - Not saving once throughout the whole game; not sure if it's 
actually been done, as you'd need to play about 20 or so hours 
straight (and that's without the side quests) and not dying once (as 
to continue the game is loaded from last save).

4. Beat Ruby and Emerald WEAPON's with no materia except Counter.

5. Defeat the Midgar Zolom first time round
 - First time you reach Chocobo Farm fight the Midgar Zolom and win.

6. No running
 - Holding X makes you run, so go through the game without running, 
just using the Directional Pad. Exceptions are on the World Map, 
where you can only run.

7. Not using Limit Breaks
 - Even if you've learned the Limit Break, don't use it, attack with 
magic instead and when not in battle, reset level to empty the gauge.

8. Use no accesories
