    The game opens with an impressive cutscene.  Not long it you will have control
    of a spiky headed lad...
    
    Examine the bodies of the first guard lying on the ground, you'll find a
    potion.  As you proceed up two guards will attack you.  In battle you have
    three options: Attack, Magic and Item.  For this fight all you need it attack.
    It only takes one hit to defeat each of the guards.
    
    Examine the body of the other soldier to receive another potion and go up the
    stairs to the left of him.  When you go up there is a scene and you are
    introduced to some new characters.  You'll also get the chance to name your
    protagonist, as well as another member of your team.  Their default names are
    Cloud and Barret.  Follow everyone else into the reactor.
    
    Inside you'll have a chat with Barret.  When he joins you be sure so switch
    him to the back row in the 'Order' part of your menu as he is a long range
    attacker.  Speak to Biggs to open the first door and Jesse to open the second.
    Through the door go Southeast to the lower section and you'll find a treasure
    box containing a Phoenix Down.  Treasure boxes in this game are yellow and can
    sometimes blend in with certain environments, keep an eye out for them.  Go
    back up and speak with Jessie to enter the elevator.  Press the button on the
    right to descend.
    
    When you reach the bottom exit the elevator and follow Jessie down the large
    stairs.  Enter the room at the bottom.  Press circle to jump across the gap
    and speak with Jessie.  Same applies to the ladder, press cicle to jump onto
    it and hold down on the D-pad to climb down.  Head down the beam, you'll
    notice a flashing blue item in between you and Jessie.  Examine it to receive
    a potion then continue down the ladder to the area below.  Run along the pipes
    to another ladder which will bring you down to a glowing save point.  Save
    points are used simply by standing on them (a small text window will appear to
    confirm you are standing on it) then going to your menu and selecting save.
    When you are ready proceed Southeast.
    
    In the next area you'll find a small object is blocking your path, pick it up
    and you will receive the Restore Materia.  There is nothing you can do with
    this at the moment, but you can check the Materia section for more
    information.  Be sure to fully heal your party before approaching the control
    device.

    |    o--------------- Strategy ------------o   Drop........ Assault Gun      |
    |                                                                            |
    |  The Guard Scorpion attacks immediately after setting the bomb.  This is   |
    |  your first real boss battle but the game does well to make sure you get   |
    |  through it.  First of all you will want to start using the other options  |
    |  besides attack, most notably Cloud's 'Bolt' spell.  Since the Guard       |
    |  Scorpion is weak to lightning elemental attacks this spell will deal a    |
    |  good bit more damage than other spells.  For Barret attacking is just     |
    |  fine.  Since you are probably going to take some damage in this battle,   |
    |  don't be afraid to use one of the numerous Potions in your item menu.     |
    |  When you begin to hurt the Guard Scorpion a lot, he will raise his tail   |
    |  into the air.  When you do Cloud gives you a warning message not to       |
    |  attack and he is right, if you do you will be hit with an attack that     |
    |  damages both your party members for quite a lot.  Sometimes it can't be   |
    |  helped if you already chose to attack before he lifted his tail, though   |
    |  you shouldn't have any trouble surviving at least one attack and you are  |
    |  perfectly safe while his tail is up, he will not attack you.  One more    |
    |  thing is that you may encounter some Limit Breaks in this battle, these   |
    |  are special powerful attacks that override your normal attack.  You can   |
    |  learn more about them in the Limit Break section, and don't hesitate to   |
    |  use them when they come up.                                               |
    |                                                                            |
    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    Afer the battle is over you have a ten minute timer.  Don't panic it gives
    easily double the amount of time you need if not more.  Take a second to equip
    that new Assault Gun you got from the fight on Barret and then run back the
    way you came.  Don't forget to save.
    
    After climbing the first two ladders you'll be in the area where you found the
    potion on the ground and had to jump across the broken part of the ground.
    Make sure you find Jessie and speak to her, if you don't help her then you'll
    have to come all the way back once you get outside.
    
    Keep backtracking up the large set of stairs and go up the elevator.  At the
    top speak to Jessie to open the first door, and Biggs to open the second.  The
    events are the same no matter what time you escape at.
    
    When you get out there is a scene in a small tunnel.  When it ends follow
    Barret up the stairs and around the corner.  When a girl meets you a
    conversation occurs and you can choose between a number of options, they have
    a very small effect on an event that occurs later, there's no right or wrong.
    Follow her South.  In this area just before the South exit you can find a
    Potion laying on the ground.  Continue South.
    
    Here you are interrupted by a number of guards.  There are three normal
    soldier battles here, though you do not have to fight all of them.  Regardless
    of fighting or running the outcome it the same.
    
    Soon you will find yourself aboard a train.  Speak with everyone when you go
    aboard and then follow Jessie into the passenger car.  Speak with her at the
    bottom right corner.  Speak with Barret once Jessie finishes talking with you.
    After all is said and done, step off the train and speak to Barret again.
    Follow him West.  On the next screen there's a save point at the upper part,
    don't miss it.  Head West.

    Speak with Barret on the left side of town and enter the bar.  You'll meet
    Tifa and have a chance to name her.  Try and leave the bar to continue the
    scene.  Afterward go over and speak to Tifa behind the bar, then ride the
    pinball machine elevator.  Speak with Barret to initiate a conversation.  When
    it's over go back up to the bar.  Try and leave and Tifa will speak to you,
    your choice doesn't make a difference.  Soon enough Barret will come up and
    give you your pay, 1500 Gil.  Time for a rest.
    
    When you wake up in the morning go up the elevator.  When you speak to Barret
    he asks about Materia.  If you choose to explain it then you will trigger a
    tutorial which is recommended if you have never played the game before.  After
    this point you can edit and equip your own Materia from the menu screen.
    
    Head to the Southern part of town.  Enter the building on your left, this is
    the item shop.  You can also buy Materia here, it would be a good idea to buy
    a 'Fire' Materia since you only have Ice and Lightning.  Leave the shop and
    enter the building on the right.  There is a weapon shop on the first floor,
    if you look at the inventory you'll see that Iron Bangle increases everyone's
    defense, so you should buy three of them.  When you're done making your
    purchases go up the stairs.  You'll be on top of the store, go inside the room
    beside the ladder.
    
    This is the Beginner's Hall, you can talk to all the people to learn the
    basics of the game.  What's most important is that you talk to the guy
    standing in the Southern part of the room.  There is a Materia in front of
    him, pick it up to receive an 'All.'  After getting it a treasure chest drops,
    it contains an Ether.  The All Materia can be attached to your other Materia
    in order to let you cast your spells on every member of your party.  It's good
    to attach to your healing Materia 'Restore.'  Leave the room and go up the
    ladder right beside the door.  You can rest in the room above for 10 Gil.
    
    That's about all there is to do for now, leave the slums via the North exit.
    Don't forget to equip the Materia and armour you purchased.  Head back to the
    station and get on the train.  Watch the scene when you enter.  After go down
    and speak with Tifa.  Soon after an alarm will go off.  You only have a
    certain amount of time to move from car to car here so be quick.
    
    First Car - Before leaving, run up to the top of the car and speak with the
    man on the right to receive a Phoenix Down.
    
    Second Car - Right before you leave the second car on your left is a man who
    will ask you a question, choose "Yeah..." to receive a Hi-Potion.
    
    Third Car - If a man steals your Gil quickly run back and talk to him, choose
    the second option "That's right" to get it back.
    
    Fourth Car - Nothing to do here but go to the next car.
    
    Fifth Car - Speak to Tifa to initiate the next sequence.
    
    When you land you'll be in a train tunnel, head North until you come to a grid
    blocking your path.  Examine the hatch on the left and choose "Go down."  When
    you land be sure to pick up the bright green Ether and continue down the
    ladder, then the next one.  When you reach the bottom you'll see a ladder just
    a bit West of you going up (not all the way West.)  Climb the ladder and crawl
    through the duct.  When you come out speak to Jessie, also grab the hidden
    Potion to the left of the duct.  Proceed West and climb down the ladder.  Be
    sure to pick up the Tent and save your game here, the tent acts like an inn
    that you can use at save point that heals your to full HP/MP.  You can use it
    now if you need it.  When you're ready climb the ladder next to Biggs.

    Slide down the huge pipe here.  When you reach the bottom enter the door to
    the West.  Take the same path you took in the first reactor to reach the area
    where you fought the Guard Scorpion.  When you arrive a scene occurs.  When
    it's over set up the bomb and go back upstairs.  Return to the large room
    where you slid down the pipe and go up the huge set of stairs to the elevator.
    When you exit the elevator at the top be sure to open the nearby chest
    containing Ether.  In the next area there are three switch which must be
    pressed at the same time.  You must press circle at exactly the right time.
    The time it takes between them talking and pressing the button is exactly two
    seconds, but since it takes time to press the button yourself hit circle about
    one second after they finish talking.  You get as many tries as you need.
    
    Go through the now opened door and be sure to save your game and heal up.
    Take the North exit when you're ready and follow the path to trigger a scene.

    |  The Air Buster has a critical weakness, since you have surrounded him,    |
    |  he'll always be facing away from some people.  These people can deal      |
    |  double damage to him with all their physical attacks and limit breaks,    |
    |  Cloud for example can deal upwards of 600 damage with Braver if he hits   |
    |  the Air Buster from behind.  If you have a powerful attack and the boss   |
    |  is facing you, press triangle to switch between party members and have    |
    |  them attack until he turns around.  Meanwhile bolt magic is very          |
    |  effective for this fight.  One important thing to note is that you        |
    |  cannot target your entire party with a heal spell since they are split    |
    |  up, so be careful.                                                        |

    When you land a conversation begins.  Continue to speak to the flower girl,
    you'll have a chance to name her, Aeris is her default name.  After speaking
    to her a couple of times a man will walk into the church.  Speak with him and
    then to Aeris again.  You'll soon find yourself in the back room.  Go near the
    large broken thing and jump off to the right.  Climb the stairs and follow
    the path around.
    
    Aeris doesn't even get a chance to try the jump.  Soon she'll ask for your
    help.  You can either have her fight, run or wait.  Having her run will only
    lead to battles so tell her to wait.  Climb the stairs and you'll see four
    barrels.  Examine the one on the West side and choose to push it over.  The
    barrel will make short work of the guard allowing Aeris to escape.  Simply
    stand where you are and wait until she calls up to you again.  This time push
    the North barrel down to clear her path.  Again wait.  For the final one, push
    the East barrel over.  When Aeris meets up with you, you can walk across one
    of the roof beams to the Northwest and jump out of the church.  Aeris speaks
    to you when you get outside.
    
    Simply use the directional pad to jump across the rooftops.  When you reach
    the slums, follow Aeris Northwest and be sure to use the save point.  Leave
    the area to the Northwest of the save point, then go North.  You'll find a
    small little 'town.'
    
    One quick note:  Aeris is in the back row, and since she is not a long range
    attacker you can double her damage by moving her up.
    
    Check out the various shops here.  When you're all set go East to find Aeris'
    house.  Before entering the house check out the garden on the East side, the
    lower section has an Ether and Cover Materia in it.  Save your game and enter
    Aeris' house.
    
    When you enter a conversation with Aeris' mother will start.  When you are
    prompted to answer your choice does have a minimal effect on a later event
    (not the ending, don't worry.)  Soon enough it will be time to rest.  Speak to
    Aeris' mother and then go upstairs.  After taking a rest and watching a quick
    scene it will be time to leave unnoticed.  You can only move by walking, do
    not hold the run button.  Also do not walk near Aeris' door.  Before going
    down the stairs be sure to go back into your room and get the item bag
    containing Potion and Phoenix Down.
    
    Leave Aeris' house.  In the small town area enter the house at the bottom
    right.  Go upstairs and you'll see some posters on the wall, examine them to
    read the 'Turtles Paradise News.'  Reading these will do something later in
    the game.  Now leave the house, and leave the town.  Head Northwest along the
    path to meet someone familiar.  Continue onward in that direction.  To get
    through this area is pretty simple, go up the ramp, across the bridge, down
    the ramp, through the tunnel, up the board and down the ramp.  There's a scene
    in the next area.  Speak to Aeris.  Afterwards go up and head East to the Wall
    Market.

    When you enter Wall Market you can save your game and upgrade your weaponry.
    If you're ready to proceed go to the Southeast section of Wall Market to find
    a number of people standing outside a large neon manor.  Speak to the fat man
    to find out info on Tifa's location.  Now that you know where she is go all
    the way to the North and speak to the man guarding the mansion.  Soon you'll
    have a new plan...
    
    Return to Wall Market.  From the main section, enter the most Northwest
    building.  This is the dress shop, after a quick conversation with the person
    working there leave the bar and go to the area of Wall Market just North of
    this.  The building to the West here is the bar, go inside and speak with the
    man closest to the door.
    
    Now for the next section you have a number of options.  If you want to become
    the best woman you can possibly be and have a chance at being 'chosen' then
    you can read the following.  This part details everything you will need to get
    all the best items that attribute to your feminine charm.
    
    When the man asks when kind of dress you want, choose "That feels soft" and
    then "That shimmers" to fulfill the requirements for the Silk Dress.
    
    This is the best dress you can get.  Return to the dress shop and try it on.
    Soon you'll realize you'll need a bit more than that.  First a wig.  Leave the
    shop and go North again.  The building on your right when you enter this
    section is the gym.  Inside speak to the person beside the ring to start the
    competition.  You must do squats, performing them are simple all you do is
    press square, X, and circle over and over again.  But it's not a matter of
    pushing them as fast as you can, it's more a matter of timing.  Get the timing
    right and you can't lose, if you need to practice the timing you'll get a
    chance to before starting the competition.  During the actual competition he
    shouldn't get much more than 14 squats in 30 seconds.
    
    For winning you will receive the Blonde Wig.  Leave the gym.  You can go back
    to the dress shop now if you wish, but there are still a number of items to
    help you out.
    
    First enter the Northeast building in the main area of Wall Market.  Speak to
    the person inside and agree to listen to what he has to say.  After he is
    finished talking head to the inn and stay the night.  During the night you
    will awake and be able to purchase one of the items from the machine.  The
    more expensive one you choose the better so pick up the one for 200 Gil.
    Return to the man and he'll reward you with a Diamond Tiara.
    
    Enter the restaurant in the centre of Wall Market and sit down at the empty
    seat.  It doesn't matter what you order.  When it comes and you finish, choose
    "It was all right" and you'll get the Pharmacy Coupon.  Take it to the
    pharmacy (South of the restaurant) and you can exchange it for a number of
    different things, choose Digestive.  With this in hand head to the bar where
    you met the girl's father.  The bathroom at the Northwest is occupied, examine
    it and offer the Digestive to receive the Sexy Cologne.
    
    Speak to the large man at the Southeast corner of the main section, he'll give
    you a Member's Card.  Now return to the manor where you inquired about Tifa.
    Speak to the guard and you'll be granted access.  You have to choose either
    the Northwest or Southwest door.  It really doesn't make much difference.
    Choose the Northwest door and watch the scene.  When you wake up talk to the
    girl to receive the Lingerie.  Leave the room and enter the door to the North.
    Talk to the bees a couple of times to have them put makeup on you.  Leave the
    manor.
    
    At this point you should be ready.  Head to the centre of town and save your
    game, then put on the dress in the dress shop before heading to the mansion.
    When you enter the mansion go up the stairs and enter the door on the left.
    Go down to the basement to find Tifa.  When Tifa and Aeris are done talking
    run around to the left and pick up the Ether before speaking with Tifa.  When
    the man calls down to say it's time, head up the stairs and enter the middle
    door.  The selection process starts.
    
    If you chose not to get the special items you'll be put in a room and have to
    talk to everyone before you're able to fight your way out.  I believe there
    are also some low-key items to pick up as well.  When you get out return to
    the don's main room.
    
    If you are chosen you'll skip right there.  When you have control in his room
    go around behind his bed and examine to find a Hyper, then speak to him to
    continue the scene.  You'll have a couple of choices that won't make a
    difference then the other two will bust in.  When you're all gathered together
    and about to leave, he'll ask another question.  "They're sure they'll win" is
    technically the correct answer, but all choices lead to the same thing.  A
    scene occurs before you find out where you land.
    
    When you land in the sewers make sure your party is fully healed and well
    equipped.  Speak to both your party members and a loud noise will erupt...

    |  In terms of Materia preparation for this battle, be sure you have Fire    |
    |  equipped on someone, and a Restore Materia paired with an All on someone  |
    |  else.  Aps is weak to fire so it will be a good source of damage as will  |
    |  limit breaks.  One of Aps' main attacks is a Tsunami that will actually   |
    |  deal about 150 damage to him, though a fair amount of damage to everyone  |
    |  in your party.  Late in the battle he starts using Sewer Tsunami which    |
    |  comes from the opposite direction dealing more damage to you and less     |
    |  damage to him.  When you make the final blow, before dying Aps will       |
    |  automatically cast Sewer Tsunami so if you think he's about to die, make  |
    |  sure you're fully healed.                                                 |
    |                                                                            |

    After the battle go up the stairs to the South and get the Potion.  Go back
    and climb the small ladder, walk along the path and down the other ladder.  Go
    up the stairs, grab the yellow Steal Materia lying on the ground and jump down
    the hole.  When you land go down the stairs and cross to the other side
    through the broken part of the fence.  Ascend the ladder to reach the Train
    Graveyard.

    Save your game at the save point directly in front of you.  Enter the train
    and exit it on the other side, you'll be beside a barrel.  Examine it to
    receive a Hi-Potion.  Go back and climb the ladder next to the save point.  On
    top of the train pick up the Hi-Potion and run to the end.  Jump onto the
    large bent steel thing, and go left.  North is another barrel with an Echo
    Screen inside.  From the barrel go Southeast and enter the train to find a
    Potion, then exit the train from the lower end.  Climb the ladder leading on
    top of the train to your right and climb back down the one just a few steps
    up.  Enter the train and make your way up, grab the Potion on the ground and
    proceed to the next area.
    
    You will see a shining object on the ground on the left side of your screen
    when you enter, pick it up to receive a Potion.  Now you will see a barrel on
    the left side of your screen, examine it to receive an Ether.  At the
    Northeast part of this map you'll see a number of discolored trains.  Two of
    them have open doors to the main car, enter the lower of the two to push one
    train out of the way, then enter the other one to set it into proper position.
    Climb up the ladder to the top of the train just below the one you moved, grab
    the Hi-Potion off the roof and jump across to the train you just moved.  Run
    left and climb down the ladder.
    
    Before leaving try to locate the Eligor enemy (he looks like some kind of half
    man, half horse with wheels) and make sure you have the Steal Materia
    equipped.  Steal the Striking Staff from him, a great weapon for Aeris.
    
    Now proceed West.  Something is afoot.

    After speaking with everyone you need to climb the tower.  Before doing do you
    can speak to the man on the left side to purchase some goods.  After, be sure
    to save your game before entering the pillar.
    
    It's a simple matter to climb the pillar, just go up the sets of stairs in a
    square pattern until you near the top.  Speak to Jessie then keep going.  When
    you actually reach the top find Barret to trigger a scene.  You'll have the
    chance to equip your party, remember that Barret will have no Materia on him
    at this point.  Press the circle button when you are ready.

    |  Reno isn't really a very hard boss.  The only real complication here is   |
    |  his Pyramid which really isn't a problem at all. The idea is that if any  |
    |  of your characters get hit by his pyramid attack, all you need to do is   |
    |  target them for a physical attack and the pyramid will go away, they      |
    |  won't even take damage from the attack.  As for Reno simply use normal    |
    |  attacks and magic, avoid bolt, but other than that everything is fair     |
    |  game.                                                                     |

    After the battle speak to Tifa and Barret.  Soon enough a helicopter will
    appear and another scene starts.  When things start to get ugly, let Barret
    explore enough to find the hook on the railing.  Go over and climb on, then
    watch a cutscene.

    There's a conversation between your party after the explosion.  When it ends
    you'll automatically find yourself in the broken down area.  Head down a bit
    until your party joins up with you, before going down any more, go back up the
    the playground and pick up the yellow Sense Materia.  From here navigate back
    to Aeris' house.
    
    When you enter, a flashback begins.  After it ends try to leave the house and
    your party members will gather.  Now it's time to head to Wall Market.
    
    Run North towards Corneo's mansion, some kids will tell you to follow them
    when you approach.  Make note of where they run off to, but first enter the
    weapon shop.  Speak to the make who is busying himself behind the counter on
    the left side.  He says he'll sell you Batteries which you'll need, there's
    three and they're 100 Gil each.  Once you have the batteries go back to where
    the kids lead you and begin climbing the wire.
    
    On the next screen keep going up the wire then jump down the left side and run
    right.  Don't start climbing up toward the propeller, instead jump down to the
    Southeast and examine the open box, this is the first place you can put a
    battery.  After it stops turning run and and across it to the next part.
    Climb across the bent train tracks and insert the battery to lift the blockade
    device.  Run up it and climb the wire.
    
    At this part you'll get a message about timing your jump.  First climb up
    further to the next screen and insert your Battery to receive an Ether.  Go
    back down and prepare for your jump.  You need to press the circle button as
    it is coming back toward you, right when it's about to touch the wire but not
    quite.  It takes practice but it's certainly not too hard.  When you make it
    to the other side, climb the pip to the next screen.  Keep going up the pipe,
    then climb the wire as high as it goes, it'll lead you to the right, back onto
    the pipe and up to the Shinra Building.

    You will have the option of busting in or sneaking in, busting in is a better
    idea overall, but if you choose to sneak in you can climb dozens of flights of
    stairs on the left side of the building.
    
    Save you game at the save point and bust in through the front door.  Right
    when you enter you'll have to fight a battle.  After it's over before going up
    the stairs run to the North and at the very top you'll find a bulletin board,
    examine the notice of the left to find Turtle's Paradise Newsletter No. 2.
    Now ascend either of the two sets of stairs.  Before going up the next set to
    the third floor, go to the North end of the second floor and enter the door.
    Inside here is a a shop you can purchase items from, however you cannot get
    the chests at this point in the game.  Leave the shop and go up the stairs to
    the third floor.
    
    Stop onto the elevator here and activate the panel in the corner.  What
    happens now is a random movement between floors, on most you'll have to fight
    enemies.  Continue to use the panel until it finally lets you off on floor 59.
    
    Leave the elevator and go down, you'll be attacked by three guards.  After you
    win they'll drop Keycard 60 and you can go up the elevator they were guarding.
    Ride it to 60F and speak to your comrades.
    
    Step off the elevator and into the room.  Head left into a small room, when
    you
    try and go out the right exit you'll realize there's a risk of being caught.
    You need to sneak by, it's relatively easy here.  You need to either wait
    until the guards are moving and run for cover behind the next pillar, or wait
    until they are both looking at different ones to pass.  When you make it
    across you'll need to do the same thing with your other two members, press the
    circle button to signal them when it's time to cross.  Next you need to do the
    exact same thing again except the guards move faster.  For the first and third
    moves wait until the guards are looking through the other openings to avoid
    needless risk.  When you finish go up to the next floor.
    
    On this floor you need to find a man in a gray suit circling the tree in the
    middle.  You'll have two choices, if you pick the second on "......" then
    he'll give you Keycard 62.  Head to the next floor.
    
    There is an interesting puzzle on this floor.  In order to proceed you need to
    guess what the password is that the mayor has come up with.  You are free to
    keep guessing but there is a reward that comes with guessing on your first
    try.  There are clues here and the clues are in the books in each room.
    Here's the way it works:  There are four book rooms and there are four letters
    to each password so you'll get one letter per room.  Before entering a room
    read the panel beside the door and it will tell you what kind of books you
    should expect to find in each one.  There are six books per room, but one out
    of those six doesn't belong.  Say for example there is a book about the space
    program in the urban planning section.  When you find this book you'll need to
    find out which letter it corresponds to.  Each books has a number beside the
    title, this numbers tells you how many letters to count forward (not including
    spaces.)  So if you found that the book "4 Weapons planning" didn't belong
    then you would count ahead 4 and 'p' would be the letter for that room.  Get
    one letter from each room and speak to the mayor on the West side of the
    floor.  The password is going to be some combination of the letters, so if
    your letters are AKMO and MAKO is one of the options, there's you answer.
    Your prize for getting in on your first try is the Keycard 65 and Elemental
    Materia.  Now head up to the next floor.
    
    On the next floor there are a number of items to get.  Leave the room and go
    down to the large computer terminal.  It will tell you that you are free to
    roam the floor, but only open three doors.  Activate the system by choosing
    "All clear."  Now leave the room and head all the way to the North wall.  When
    you reach the North wall there will be a door on your left, this is the first
    door you should open.  Keep going left until you hit a second door but do not
    open it, instead open the one directly to the South.  Assuming you've done
    everything right so far you should be able to go into the room on the left and
    grab the A Coupon off the floor.  Now climb into the air duct just beside the
    item.  Go down and then right, when you come to a fork go up.  Drop out of the
    duct and get the B Coupon.  Leave the room and go directly left, you should be
    right beside the door with the C Coupon but one more gate blocks your path,
    luckily you still have one more door you can open, so open the one on your
    left and get the C Coupon.  Climb back into the air duct and return to the
    computer terminal, select "Coupon Change."  You will receive Star Pendant,
    Four Slots and All Materia.  Be sure to equip the Star Pendant on someone then
    go up to the next floor.
    
    On this floor leave the room and enter the large exercise room.  Go to the two
    vending machines and the Northwest corner of the room and put in 250 Gil.
    When the machine fails to give you anything don't worry, later in the game
    you'll get your reward.  For now go into the West room, you can rest for free
    and save you game.  When you're set, on to the next floor.
    
    Leave the little room and enter the room to the West and open the lower chest
    to receive the Midgar Parts.  Take them to the room in the middle and insert
    them into any of the open slots.  Afterwards it's just a matter of doing this
    again and again until all slots have been filled.  Now enter the Southwest
    room and open the chest on the left, put the parts into the model.  Enter the
    West room again and use the parts from that chest.  Next go to the Northeast
    room, and finally the Southwest room.  When all are set again return to the
    stair room and open the chest to receive Keycard 66.  Head up the stairs.
    
    Go to the Northwest room (the bathroom) and get into the stall.  Examine the
    toilet and choose to climb up into the duct.  Go down and listen in on the
    meeting.  After it's over climb back down and return to the stairs following
    Hojo to the next floor.  Leave the room and go down, around to the West side
    of the floor.  A scene occurs when you approach Hojo.  Go North and open the
    chest to receive the Poison Materia, then save your game.  After saving go up
    the elevator beside you.  When you approach Hojo another scene occurs.  You'll
    have the chance to name another member.  Choose whether you want Tifa or
    Barret to leave, and then...

    |  The sample doesn't have too much health, but he's in the back row which   |
    |  makes it harder to hit him with physical attacks.  For this battle rely   |
    |  on limit breaks and magic like fire, which Red XIII comes equipped with   |
    |  from the start.  If you get poisoned do not worry about healing it,       |
    |  you'll get poisoned just about every turn, focus on being offensive and   |
    |  healing whenever necessary. Also do not even bother to target his little  |
    |  helpers, just go for the boss itself with every attack.  This strategy    |
    |  should lead to a quick fight.                                             |

    After the battle you need to create a party of three.  It's all a matter of
    preference, personally I prefer Cloud, Barret and Tifa at this point but make
    your own decision.  Once your party is created step into the tube that Aeris
    was being held in and pick up the Enemy Skill Materia.  Head South, go up the
    little ramp and grab the two Potions.  Speak to the man just a little ways
    North of you to receive Keycard 68, now follow him to the stairs and go down
    to floor 67.
    
    At this point you can start searching for either the of the enemies Moth
    Slasher or Soldier:3rd (you can see an enemies' name by putting your attack
    cursor on the and pressing select.)  Try and steal from these enemies you'll
    get the great armour Carbon Bangle from the former, and the great weapon
    Hardedge from the latter.
    
    Go down to 66F.  Head to the very South and get on the elevators.  When you
    press the button a scene occurs.  After the scene when you find yourself in
    prison approach the door, you can ask about Barret and Red but only HAVE to
    ask about Aeris.  After asking about Aeris, go up to the door again and choose
    to get some sleep.  After your rest you'll wake to find the door open.
    Examine the body of the guard and then get Tifa.  When she goes to get Aeris
    you go and get Barret.  Go talk to Barret by the corpse, and then to Tifa.
    When you've got your party together follow the blood trail back to the
    elevator and go up.  Follow the blood trail all the way up to 69F.  Save your
    game and go up the stairs, approach the president for a scene.  Afterward go
    through the door to the North to continue it.
    
    Back on 69F you'll have the option to remove Cloud and Tifa's Materia, do it.
    Make sure you set up your Materia, if you need recommendations then read the
    boss strategy, this of course applies to every situation through the game.  Go
    South and get on the elevator.  When you press the button...

    |  For the hundred gunner make sure you have lightning Materia equipped on   |
    |  Red XIII, Barret isn't so important because his normal attack can reach   |
    |  this boss but Red's can't.  Aeris should be the designated healer, a      |
    |  Restore attached to an All as well as her Healing Wind limit break will   |
    |  help a lot. Use Barret's normal attack and bolt magic every turn to keep  |
    |  the damage up, healing whenever it is needed.  Don't forget, there's no   |
    |  range for Red's limit break so use it whenever you want.                  |

    |  The same basic strategy applies here, in fact you don't even go to a      |
    |  separate battle.  The second part of this boss has less HP but more       |
    |  powerful attacks, including ones that can cause some status ailments.     |
    |  Again ignore these even if you are hit by them, focus on healing HP and   |
    |  dealing as much damage as possible with bolt magic.  If you won the last  |
    |  fight you should be able to win this one...                               |

    |  He only has a measly 500 HP, but he starts the fight with a monster that  |
    |  will cast Barrier on both Rufus and itself. Be sure you take care of the  |
    |  monster first.  Once it's eliminated it's simply a battle of attrition    |
    |  between you and Rufus, take some damage, attack normally, cast cure, use  |
    |  a limit break, rinse and repeat.  If you got the Hardedge from the enemy  |
    |  in the building this battle will only last a minute or so.                |
    |                                                                            |
    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    Run back into the building and go downstairs.  Save your game and talk to
    Tifa.  As Aeris try and leave the building to trigger a scene, followed by a
    cutscene.  When you're on the road you'll get a quick bike tutorial.  All you
    really need to know is that square and circle attack left and right
    respectively.  Press X to form your party, then go to the menu and make sure
    everyone is set up, press start to begin.
    
    During this event the only difference how well you do makes, is how much
    damage your party takes.  Every time another motorcycle hits the car your
    party takes damage.  The quickest tip is as follows, the orange bikes go down
    easily with a sword swing, the red bikes go down easily by actually nudging
    them with your bike while attacking.  Even if you have trouble doing this it
    shouldn't leave your party too crippled.  The most important thing is that you
    don't defeat anyone while they're in front of the car otherwise they'll crash
    and the car will most likely drive into them dealing a lot of damage.  Near
    the end a large enemy will approach and trigger a fight.

    |  Don't be stingy with the bolt magic, he's weak to it.  Be sure to stay    |
    |  away from fire magic too, physical attacks and bolt are best. If you got  |
    |  the Elemental Materia from the mayor in the Shinra Building you can       |
    |  attach it to a Fire Materia in one of your armour slots to lessen the     |
    |  damage from fire attacks which helps against this boss.  Charge your      |
    |  limit breaks and let the off the second you have them, when he takes      |
    |  enough damage he'll begin using an attack called Rolling Fire which is    |
    |  pretty dangerous, but if you can cast cure all, you'll probably be left   |
    |  with full health and a fresh supply of limit breaks.  His other attacks   |
    |  aren't particularly dangerous.                                            |

    After the battle watch the scene.
    
    When you have control, try and leave and choose "Let's go."  Make up your
    party and head onto the world map.
    
    On the map, the first thing you should do besides get accustomed to moving
    around, is search for battles in the dirt dark ground area around Midgar.  Try
    and get into a fight with a robot mech-looking enemy called Sweeper Custom.
    When you get into this fight not only are you going to want to have the Enemy
    Skill Materia equipped, but Steal as well.  Steal the Atomic Scissors from
    this enemy, and also wait until it casts Matra Magic.  If someone has the
    enemy skill equipped then it will learn "Matra Magic" when the enemy casts it.
    Equip the Atomic Scissors on Barret, but they aren't a long range weapon so be
    sure to switch him to the front row.  Head Northeast to the town of Kalm.

    Enter the town of Kalm.  Head to the central area of town, you'll notice to
    the North are three houses side by side.  Enter the left house and open the
    odor beneath the stairs to find an Ether.  Now enter the middle house of the
    three and examine the upstairs cabinet beside the beds to get another Ether.
    Leave this house and enter the right of the three, go upstairs and open the
    closet to the left of the little girl.  You'll find a Guard Source.  Go back
    downstairs and head up the spiral stairs on the other side of the house.
    You'll find a treasure chest containing Peacemaker.  From the centre of town,
    go into the house to the East and you'll find a  third Ether in the closet
    under the stairs.
    
    Now you can check out the shops and equip yourself if you need to, I recommend
    selling some Ethers if you need money.  When you're ready go to the inn and
    meet your party upstairs.  A flashback will begin.  Watch until you have
    control again.
    
    In the battle your actions means virtually nothing, you can die it won't
    matter.  The scene will continue again.  When you reach the town, head past
    Sephiroth and enter it.
    
    The next time you are given control, you can enter Tifa's house to the
    Southeast.  She'll ask if you went in her house, choose yeah, go upstairs and
    she'll ask if you went in her room, choose yeah again.  Examine the dresser at
    the top corner of her room to receive the Orthopedic Underwear, which doesn't
    actually do anything.  You can play with the piano if you wish.
    
    Make your way to the inn and speak with Sephiroth upstairs, agreeing to rest.
    The next morning speak to Sephiroth near the edge of town.  After the scene
    when you're up on the mountain, follow Tifa across the bridge.  When you've
    got everyone gathered at the bottom, go up and enter the cave.  Stick to the
    path on the right in the cave and exit North.  Watch the scene at the
    fountain.
    
    Go into the reactor, across the pipe and down the chain.  Follow Sephiroth
    into the next room.  When he tells you to close the valve examine the pod on
    the lower right to do so and then speak with him.  Speak with him again to
    examine the pod.  Watch the rest of the scene.
    
    At this point you'll have a little intermission.  You can save your game if
    you need to before starting up again.
    
    Inside the mansion go up the stairs and to the right.  In the Southeast room
    there is a curved wall with a door imprint on it, examine it and it will open.
    Go down the spiral path and straight into the room at the end of the hall.
    After the scene speak to Sephiroth and leave the room.  The next morning,
    return to the basement room of the mansion.  Find Sephiroth in there and talk
    to him.
    
    Run back upstairs and out of the mansion.  Proceed to the centre of town and
    speak to Zangan, run into the house on the right.  Watch the scene.
    
    Go down the chain again and return to the pod room.  After the events, speak
    to Tifa and follow Sephiroth into the room at the top, for the final event.
    
    Back in Kalm after the story ends go downstairs.  Aeris will give you the PHS
    which allows you to switch between party members at any time on the world map,
    or at a save point.  You're done so it's time to leave Kalm.
    
    On the world map, head East from Kalm.  When you get past the mountains on the
    dies and the field opens up, head South.  Around the middle of the field
    you'll see a little farm.
    
    There's a little optional fight here.  West of the farm is a swamp where a
    large snake named Midgar Zolom lurks.  If you are running around in the swamp
    and the shadow touches you then you are automatically taken into a battle.

    |  The Midgar Zolom is an optional fight you can do as many times as you     |
    |  want. If you accidentally trigger the battle you can always run away.     |
    |  He doesn't give that much XP or anything really, the only reason you      |
    |  would want to fight him at this point is to either charge your limit      |
    |  meter or learn the incredibly powerful Beta Enemy Skill.  In order to     |
    |  learn the skill at this point there is really only one way to do it.  If  |
    |  you got the Elemental Materia from the mayor in Midgar you need to equip  |
    |  it on one of your characters in the armour slot, and attach it to a Fire  |
    |  Materia.  Since Beta is a fire spell you will lessen the damage you take  |
    |  otherwise death is almost guaranteed.  Your other members will die too,   |
    |  but he only starts using this attack when he is weak (less than 1000 HP   |
    |  remaining) so hopefully you have a way to defeat him at that point.  Two  |
    |  things to note:  He has to ability to knock any member of your party out  |
    |  of the battle, also note if you learn the Enemy Skill and then run away,  |
    |  you do not keep it.                                                       |
    |                                                                            |

            Gysahl Greens...... 100 Gil
    
    As you approach the house from the left side you'll see a Chocobo standing
    right at the fence.  Speak to it and choose "Wark."  You'll see a little scene
    here and get the Choco/Mog Materia when it ends.  This is your first summon
    Materia of the game so be sure to use it.  Go into the house and speak with
    the man inside, say yes when he asks if you wish to cross the swamp.  Once
    you've talked to him, leave the house and enter the barn.  Speak to Chocobo
    Billy about getting a Chocobo.  Buy the Chocobo Lure when he asks if you want
    it.  You'll also need some greens, you don't really need the expensive ones,
    get some greens in the mid price range.
    
    Now it would be a good idea to go to your item menu, choose 'Arrange' and then
    'Customize.'  Put the greens at the very top of your list as you'll need to
    access them quickly in battle.  Return to the world map.
    
    Equip someone with the Chocobo Lure Materia, it doesn't matter who.  Now what
    you need to do is run approximately over those V shaped Chocobo footprints on
    the world map.  Randomly when you get into a battle, there will be a Chocobo.
    You need to defeat all the enemies besides the Chocobo in order to catch it.
    However the Chocobo will run away soon after the battle starts so you need to
    keep it there by giving it the greens you bought, the more expensive they were
    the longer they last.  Now defeat the enemies, if at any point you attack the
    Chocobo it will automatically run away.  If the Chocobo is the only one left
    it means you caught it and the battle ends.
    
    Once you have the Chocobo do not push the x button, or you will dismount and
    it will run away.  Instead ride it West to the large swamp with the Midgar
    Zolom swimming around inside.  You can outrun it with the Chocobo, run across
    the swamp and you'll find a little cave with non-swamp land on the West side.
    This is where to let your Chocobo go and enter the cave.
    
    When you try to enter, there's a quick scene before you're actually inside the
    cave.  Simply leave the area.

    chain, be sure you steal the Grand Glove a new weapon for Tifa.  Also if you
    fight a large dragonfly enemy called Ark Dragon, let it cast its Flamethrower
    spell on someone with an Enemy Skill Materia to learn it.
    
    When you first enter the mine, go Northeast to the next area.  Climb the steps
    to find an Ether and a chest containing Tent.  At the bottom of the steps on
    your left is a vine hanging down from above, if you climb it you'll see the
    Long Range Materia at the top.  Return to the entrance of the mine.
    
    Head South and go right at the fork.  Get the chest containing Mind Source.
    Return to the fork and go West to the next screen,  and watch the scene.
    
    Once it's over go North into the small room, pick up the Elixir and Hi-Potion.
    Go back to the room where the Turks were and climb the vines on the right to
    reach the exit of the cave.
    
    There are a couple of optional things you can do now.  If you go South of the
    cave exit you'll find Fort Condor, there are a couple of shops and a minigame
    available there now at this point in the game, but it will play a bigger role
    later.
    
    North of the exit you'll see some forests surrounding a small mountain area.
    At this point you can actually recruit a new optional character.  Run around
    in these forests getting into fights until you battle a human girl wielding a
    large Shuriken.  She doesn't have much HP, once you defeat her you will
    automatically be taken to a field area.
    
    First of all, do NOT save at the save point.  Speak to the girl on the ground.
    
         Choose "Not Interested"
         Choose "......petrified"
         Choose "Wait a second!"
         Choose "......that's right"
         Choose "......let's hurry on"
    
    And you'll get a chance to name Yuffie, then she joins your party.
    
    When everything is all set, head to the dot on the West coast and enter the
    large town on the edge.

    |  Bottomswell is a pretty straightforward boss but not particularly easy.   |
    |  You'll need to focus on magic here since you probably won't be able to    |
    |  reach him with most of your party, that Long Range Materia from the       |
    |  Mythril Cave will probably come in handy for this fight.  Use the         |
    |  Flamethrower Enemy Skill (and Beta if you have it) as well as the         |
    |  Choco/Mog summon and basically any other magic you have.  Bio works       |
    |  wonders since he can be poisoned.  His attacks are pretty basic except    |
    |  for a couple, he has the ability to use a move like to Reno's pyramid.    |
    |  The shell of water however will drain you health while you are in it.     |
    |  Now it can only be removed by casting magic on it, rather than physical   |
    |  attacks.  Also be weary of Bottomswell's Big Wave which targets all your  |
    |  members, and he will automatically cast it when he dies.  Keep you HP     |
    |  above 200 minimum at all times.                                           |
    |                                                                            |
    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    After the battle is a scene and a little mini 'game.'  You need to perform
    CPR, it's pretty simple.  When positioned you'll see a lunge breath indicator.
    You need to press square to start it and let it go right until the last breath
    at the very top, no further.  To get to the very top takes exactly ten
    breaths, count it if you need to.  If it takes more than five repetitions
    without any mistakes, it means you probably aren't going high enough with the
    meter.
    
    When she does wake up another scene occurs.  Go to the Southeast part of Junon
    and speak to the lady in front of the door near the entrance to the town.
    She'll invite you to stay the night, do so.
    
    In the morning leave the house and find the rest of your party standing in the
    middle of town.  When you try and climb the stairs you'll be interrupted.  At
    this point you will receive the Shiva Materia, your next summon spell.
    
    Now head to the beach.  Speak to Priscilla near the water to initiate another
    mini 'game.'  Priscilla explains the concept to you, when she asks if you wish
    to partake choose "Sure."  The idea here is that blowing the whistle will
    cause the dolphin to jump you up high, you're trying to reach the pole at the
    top.  Aiming is far from easy but that doesn't matter since there's a way to
    reach it instantly.  Do not move from the position you start at in the water.
    Call the dolphin once, and then again and bingo... you're at the top.  Climb
    the ladder and watch the short cutscene.
    
    Run South from the giant airship onto the huge elevator and activate the panel
    to descend.  Enter the door to the South.  When you get inside, head into the
    Northwest room.  Change into the uniform you find in the second to left
    locker.  A demonstration on how to march will be shown, choose "All clear!" if
    you get the idea.  Now leave the room and go out the Southwest door from the
    hallway.  When you're outside, follow the soldiers into the little alleyway.
    
    Now you have to test what you learned.  When the soldier tells you to go,
    quickly run into the empty spot at the bottom right corner of a marching
    group.  Be sure that your feet are moving in sync with the other soldiers and
    hold circle to time your gun-shouldering with everyone else.
    
         Better than 01% gets you a grenade
         Better than 22% gets you 6 Potions
         Better than 40% gets you 6 Ethers
         Better than 51% gets you 5000 Gil
    
    Once the parade ends you'll find yourself in another area.  After the scene
    you'll get a choice of two options, both lead to the same thing.  Back in the
    locker room there's another tutorial for a significantly easier event.  Simply
    press the corresponding button on your controller as they are yelled out.
    After you're dismissed go to the hallway and save your game.  Now exit to the
    Southwest.
    
    Now you can start perusing the shops.  The first one you can enter is the one
    with the man standing out front, the rest of them are along that side, don't
    forget to check alleys as well as doors from places to enter.
    
    As previously mentioned, the first store with the man out front is the Materia
    Shop.  Be sure to pick up Revive.  Next over is an alley with a Weapon Shop.
    Downstairs you can find and speak to Rude of the Turks if you wish.  Next in
    line is the item shop, followed by a single house.  Go inside and up the
    stairs, on this floor you will find a 1/35 Soldier, Mind Source and Luck
    Source.  On the next floor are a Power Source and Guard Source.  Return to the
    first floor of this house, there is a soldier guarding the entrance to a
    doorway somewhat hidden behind a wall.  Speak to him and you will be granted
    access to the basement.  This is another tutorial type area, but the most
    important item to pick up here is the Enemy Skill Materia.  Leave the house.
    
    Go down to the next area, you'll have to pass through three maps before you
    are at the other shop area.  The first door is a bar with the other two Turks,
    the second door has an inn as well as save point on the first floor.  The
    second floor is a Materia Shop.  You'll find an accessory shop on the third
    floor.  In the next door you'll find a Speed Source on the first floor, and a
    1/35 Soldier in the pile of junk on the second floor.  In the final door is
    another Weapon Shop.
    
    Once all your shopping is complete, go North from the main road with the
    second set of shops.  When you arrive there will be a quick scene prior to
    your performance.  Get ready to show your skills at button-press timing.
    Press whatever button or direction he calls out.  At the final mark when he
    tells you to prep for the last move, change directions to make sure you are
    facing forward, and press triangle to do the special.
    
         Better than 000 gets you Silver Glasses
         Better than 060 gets you HP Plus
         Better than 100 gets you Force Stealer
    
    The HP Plus Materia is actually a better reward if you're willing to delay
    your acquisition of the sword for a short while.  Choose whichever you wish.
    
    When the soldier tells you to go clean up, hop onto the Cargo Ship.

    When you first arrive on the ship, grab the chest on your left to receive
    Ether.  On your right just a few steps up is an All Materia, however if you
    have Yuffie in your party you cannot reach it at this point, but you will be
    able to soon.  Speak to Yuffie, as well as Aeris wandering on the upper left
    side.  Climb the stairs to the upper deck.  South of you is a ladder, go up
    and speak with Tifa.  The sailor walking quietly just Southwest of where Tifa
    is standing will heal you for 250 Gil as well as sell you items.  Go to the
    West side of this area and ascend the ladder.  Speak with Red XIII and save
    your game.
    
    Speak to the soldier blocking the path to the West, then go back down and talk
    to Aeris.  She should ask if you've seen Barret, once she does return to where
    the man was blocking the West exit and he'll be gone.  Go West and watch the
    scene.
    
    Once you spoken to Barret, head back East and meet up with your party.  Make a
    team of three then save your game.  Go down to the lower deck of the ship, if
    you weren't able to get the All Materia before now you have access to it.
    Enter the door to the North.  When you enter the room climb the ladder on your
    left, do not approach the soldier.  Go around the top of the walkway and open
    the chest to receive a Wind Slash.  Now walk up to the red soldier to initiate
    a scene...

    |  Before the battle it's a good idea to do a couple things, first of all    |
    |  make sure you have someone with Restore Materia paired to All, also get   |
    |  into a battle with the four magic casting little floating enemies and     |
    |  allow them to charge all your characters limits to full power.  For the   |
    |  battle itself use limits whenever they become available, since her        |
    |  attacks are powerful she'll charge your gauges fast.  A downside of her   |
    |  attacks being powerful is that you'll have to heal a lot.  Your All       |
    |  Materia likely won't be a very high level so rely more on Aeris' Healing  |
    |  Wind, especially after a couple of Tail Lasers.  For damage simply rely   |
    |  on normal magic as well as Flamethrower Enemy Skill, Shiva summon and of  |
    |  course limit breaks.                                                      |
    |                                                                            |
    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    After the battle you'll get to choose an option and listen to a quick story
    recap if you wish.  Obviously before leaving the room you should grab the
    glowing red sphere on the ground, it's your next summon spell Ifrit.  Exit the
    room to trigger a scene.

    Once your teammates finish talking, take the East exit from this area and
    another scene will occur.  When it ends you'll find yourself in the town of
    Costa del Sol.  Directly across the bridge the first door you're likely to
    enter is the Shinra Villa.  Speak to the man lying on the bed and you can
    purchase it for 300,000 Gil, though you'll likely be passing on that for now.
    Go downstairs and you'll find all sorts of items including Fire Ring, Power
    Source and Motor Drive.
    
    Outside the house and down the stairs you'll find the bar, there is a man at
    the lower left corner selling some things.  Northeast of the bar beside the
    yellow van Yuffie has set up her own shop.  To the right is an inn, and to the
    right of that is an item shop.  Go East onto the beach and you'll meet someone
    familiar.  Speak to one of the girls beside him and tell her you want to speak
    with the man.  Once the scene ends, leave Costa del Sol by going underneath
    the bridge you came in on.
    
    Head South until you reach a river, then West a bit and North, you should be
    following ground that is raised a little higher and it will lead you around a
    mountain to a path.  Follow the path and go into the entrance on the side of

    Start up the mountain and talk to the man sitting against the rock.  Head
    North to the next screen and North again.  Follow the stairs down to the
    reactor and go South.  Continue along the tracks until you reach a save point.
    Go right and you'll reach a fork in the tracks, take the upper path.  As you
    walk the ground will break underneath you and you'll start to fall, hold left
    and press circle as fast as you can.  Assuming you got over far enough, as you
    climb up you'll find an item bag containing Wizard Staff.
    
    Keep going right along the tracks and open the chest to receive W Machine Gun.
    Go back to the fork and take the bottom path this time.  As you go the tracks
    will break again, hold right a keep pressing circle.  On your way up you'll
    find a Star Pendant.  When you reach the next fork go left via the upper path
    and get the Turbo Ether, just past the Ether is another section where the
    track bends, pound on the circle button to try and avoid falling since there's
    no items left down there.  Pick up the green Transform Materia and return to
    the fork.  Follow the upper path to the next screen.
    
    Run along the tracks until you come to a little hut, the switch inside will
    lower the bridge below.  Now look at the slanted wall just outside of the hut,
    examine it around the middle to climb up.  At the top there is a nest of
    birds, you can choose to take the treasure of not.  The treasure is 10 Phoenix
    Downs and you'll have to fight a normal enemy.
    
    Return to the area with the up and down tracks, take the lower set of tracks
    at the fork to reach the bridge you just closed.  Go across and follow the
    tracks to another fork.  Take the left path leading down.  When you reach the
    little rocky area at the bottom head right and you'll enter a small room with
    a number of items including Tent, Mind Source and Power Source.  Go back to
    the fork above this small room and take the other path to the next screen,
    across a large bridge and out of Mt. Corel.

    When you arrive at the Gold Saucer you will be unable to save your game as the
    save point costs 5 GP to use, GP is the type of currency the Gold Saucer uses.
    Speak to the woman standing outside.  A single visit costs 3000 Girl while a
    lifetime costs 30,000, if you have the Gil the lifetime pass is easily worth
    it, but you probably don't at the moment.  Regardless enter the Gold Saucer.
    
    After everyone is finished talking, speak to someone you want to accompany
    you.  Now you can check out all the attractions here.  Start by going to the
    ghost square, you can take a rest if you have GP or check out the shop.  One
    thing you should to is read the notice to the left of the shop entrance, it's
    actually Turtle's Paradise notice No. 3.  Now return to the station.
    
    You can explore anywhere else you wish, but your real destination is the
    Wonder Square.  When you arrive a scene occurs.  There's an opportunity to
    name Cait Sith here before here forcefully joins your party.  Go up the stairs
    and into the back of the Wonder Square area.  There's all sorts of minigames
    here but most of them are unavailable at this point in the game.  Check the
    Gold Saucer section of the walkthrough for more info on ones you actually can
    play.
    
    When you're satisfied you've explored enough, go to the Battle Square.  Go up
    the stairs to the main area and watch the scene.

    Unfortunately you'll soon find yourself in the Corel Prison.  Head through the
    fence to the South and save your game.  Inside the house just below the save
    point you'll meet the rest of your team and watch a flashback scene.  Make up
    a party and leave the house through the South door.  There is a bar just below
    you where you can purchase items.  Return and save your game.
    
    Go North back to where you first entered the prison.  To the Northwest you'll
    see an opening in fence right beside a dead guy.  Go through there and head
    North to the next map.  In the next area you'll be on the left side of a fence
    spanning off in to the distance, there is an open section of it around the
    middle, go through it and head East.  You should find yourself in a large
    junkyard, if not keep going East until you do.
    
    In this area you may want to note that you can learn the Enemy Skill 'Laser'
    from the Death Claw enemies, and also the 'Matra Magic' enemy skill from the
    Bullmotors if you missed it earlier.  When you think you're prepared, go North
    and watch the scene...

    |  You have to fight this battle with Barret alone, however it is extremely  |
    |  easy if you follow this simple setup.  Simply equip Barret with the W     |
    |  Machine Gun and be sure he is in the back row.  Give him a Restore        |
    |  Materia and nothing else in order to minimize the amount of max HP loss   |
    |  from equipping Materia, this means no summon spells.  Rely on normal      |
    |  attacks and limit breaks, healing when necessary.  You shouldn't have a   |
    |  problem taking too much damage at once it Barret is in the back row.      |
    |                                                                            |

    Watch the scene after the battle ends.
    
    You can get a quick overview of Chocobo racing in the elevator is you wish.
    When you reach the top make sure the first thing you do is pick up the shiny
    red object hidden against the North wall.  It's the Ramuh Materia.  Stand
    around for a bit until the jockeys are called, once they leave Ester appears,
    Talk to her to begin the race.
    
    To win the Chocobo race it's simply a matter of conserving your stamina.
    First of all start the race by pressing select to go into manual and tap the
    square button a few times to reach your top speed.  For this race you almost
    certainly will not have enough stamina to win.  Each time you lose you get a
    better Chocobo, and there's no punishment for losing.  You can however win
    rather easily on the first try, simply hold R1 + R2 while racing to recover
    stamina, then use the circle dash at your discretion.
    
    Create your party and be on your way.
    
    Now that you have the buggy there are four enemy skills you can get.
    
    Aqualung - Ride the buggy around in the sand surrounding the Gold Saucer until
    you encounter a large chimera-like beast called Harpy.  This enemy has a spell
    called Aqualung, make sure you're actually strong enough to survive the 500+
    damage to your whole party before letting it actually cast it on you.
    
    Big Guard - One of the best Enemy Skills in the game, ride the buggy North
    across the light blue section of the river and start fighting enemies on the
    beach next to Costa del Sol.  Get into a fight with the crab like enemies
    called "Beach Plug."  Manipulate them (manipulate Materia comes equipped
    automatically on Cait Sith) and have them cast their 'Big Guard' spell on you
    to learn it.
    
    White Wind - Take the ship from Costa del Sol back to Junon.  Leave the ship
    and talk to the man standing on the road to the South and he'll allow you to
    ride a helicopter outside of Junon.  Get into a fight with the large winged
    enemy called Zemzelett and manipulate it.  Have it cast its 'White Wind' spell
    on you.  (Note White Wind takes almost all of its MP, so if it casted Bolt2
    before you manipulated it, you may have to use an Ether on it first.)  Go back
    to Junon, take the elevator at the North part of town up to the top part of
    the city and ride the boat back.
    
    Frog Song - Go South from the Gold Saucer across the light blue part of the
    river.  You'll see what looks like some kind of broken down structure
    surrounded by a forest.  Get into a fight in that forest against the little
    frog enemies called Touch Me.  Have them cast the Frog Song spell on you to
    learn it.
    
    Enter the broken down structure South of the Gold Saucer described in the Frog
    Song explanation.

    |  This fight should be fought specifically targeting Reno. If you kill one  |
    |  the other leaves, but the catch is that you only get the drop item from   |
    |  the one you kill so put more emphasis on Reno.  If you're trying to get   |
    |  both items I'd recommend your most powerful summon spells and of course   |
    |  the Aqualung Enemy Skill you just got.  Rude has the ability to cure, so  |
    |  if he starts healing Reno be sure to compensate you don't want to end up  |
    |  accidentally killing Rude only.                                           |

    After the battle you'll find yourself standing at a path fork.  Head
    Northeast.  Run to the broken reactor, and make your way to the very back.
    When you do a scene will trigger, once it's over examine the ruined reactor in
    the middle and choose to reach back, you'll get the Titan Materia.  Go back to
    the fork where you first came in.
    
    Go Northwest this time and you'll come to another fork.  Go Northeast to reach
    a small town.  Start by going into the North-most house and open the chest to
    receive White M-Phone.  Leave the house and inside the one left of it you'll
    find a chest containing an X-Potion.  Now you're free to explore any shops you
    wish.
    
    When you're ready to leave go back to the fork in the path and head Northwest.
    Along the way on the right side of the path you'll see a shiny yellow object,
    pick up the Deathblow Materia.  Keep going to exit the area.
    
    Now get in your buggy and proceed directly West.  Stay along the side of the
    river and cross over at the light blue area.  There is only one path to take
    up the canyon here.  When you reach the top your and try and pass the
    structure in the side of the mountain, your buggy breaks down.  Exit the buggy
    and go into Cosmo Canyon.

    Speak to the man at the gate and tell him you are not familiar with the land.
    You can check out some of the shops here, remember if you don't know which
    places to go into, the select button can be very helpful.  Be sure to check
    out the inn just North of the 'Cosmo Candle' fire, beside the desk on the
    second floor is the Turtle's Paradise notice No. 5.
    
    Go up the stairs on the West side of the canyon and speak to Red XIII.  Follow
    everyone up into the door and save your game.  Examine the piece of paper
    posted beside the weapon shop, it's Turtle's Paradise notice No. 4.
    
    Keep going upstairs to the next level.  Climb the ladder and enter the large
    building.  Speak to Red XIII and watch the scene.  You'll need to go back down
    the ladder a speak to one of your party members, and form a party.  Go back up
    and talk to Bugenhagen in the back room to initiate another scene.
    
    After the scene speak to Bugenhagen and go back to the main entrance of Cosmo
    Canyon, to the Cosmo Candle.  Speak to Aeris, then Tifa, then Barret, then Red
    XIII.  After Red XIII speaks to you, you'll have to form a pary consisting of
    Cloud, Red and any other member you choose.  Go save your game at the weapon
    shop and follow Bugenhagen up to the next floor.  Speak to Bugenhagen and tell
    him you're ready.  Make sure Red XIII is equipped well in case you haven't
    been using him.

    Go down all the ladders and ropes until you reach the bottom, then through the
    East door.  You can get the Enemy Skill 'Death Sentence' from either the Gi
    Spectors or the Sneaky Steps enemies here.  You'll notice there are a number
    of open caves that lead nowhere here.  Each one contains a switch inside but
    only one opens the door, the rest trigger a fight.  Go past the first hole,
    past the second and enter the third.  Choose to break the rock open and a door
    will appear, go through it.
    
    When you come to a fork go left.  You'll approach some kind of slick substance
    on the ground, make sure to walk and not run over this otherwise you will
    slide into the spikes and take damage.  Walk across it and head South.  On the
    next screen you'll find the Added Effect Materia on the ground.  Go back up,
    head right at the slippery corner, and up at the next fork.  At the top go
    left then down the stairs to the South.  Keep going South to a chest
    containing Black M-Phone.  Head back up but go right before ascending the
    stairs, make your way North to another chest containing Ether.  Return to the
    top of the stairs and head Northwest to the next area.
    
    You'll approach five different tunnels here, enter the one second from the
    right and go up.  When you touch the spider web you'll have to fight an enemy,
    not quite a boss but certainly harder than normal enemies.  Use you most
    powerful attacks and limits, he'll charge your gauge very fast with his Sting
    Bomb but don't worry, it only deals a percentage of your life and cannot
    actually kill you.
    
    Keep going up and get the X-Potion from the chest.  Do not use this, you'll
    need it soon.  Return to the tunnels and take the one second from the left.
    Defeat another spider and go left down the path, then South.  You'll notice
    when you reach the bottom there is a chest on your right that you cannot
    reach.  Slightly above you in the tunnel where you cannot see there is a
    branch leading to the right, take it and get that chest containing Fairy Ring.
    Head back to where you fought the spider, go North and defeat one more.  Just
    past the web, go through the wall on the left to find a chest containing Turbo
    Ether.  Proceed through the door to the North.

    |  I don't know what to say.  I could outline a boss strategy here, but      |
    |  anyone who wants to legitimately defeat this boss is probably doing it    |
    |  for the challenge factor and isn't looking for help.  Suffice to say that |
    |  X-Potion you just conveniently picked up outside, selected from your item |
    |  menu and used on this 'undead' boss will effectively end the fight in a   |
    |  matter of seconds.  To sum it up, X-Potion = instant win.                 |
    |                                                                            |

    After the battle pick up the green Gravity Materia where the boss was and
    follow your party North.  Watch the scene.
    
    Once you're back at the candle, gather your party and leave Cosmo Canyon.  As
    you try to go, Red XIII rejoins up with you again.  Your buggy is fixed,
    continue along the path you would have gone had it not broken down, and make
    your way North across the river to the town of Nibelheim.

    Examine the piece of paper on the floor to your left.  These are clues to the
    locations of the combination numbers to the safe.  The first number you can
    find is right here, when you get the option to choose between either dial 1,
    2, or 3, select the invisible fourth option to get '(4) Right 97.'
    
    If you happen to fight an enemy named Jersey here that look like large
    floating scales, make sure to learn the '????' Enemy Skill from them.
    
    Enter the room to the North, left of the stairs.  Go left and examine behind
    the piano to get '(2) Left 10.'  Go up and head to the right this time, open
    the chest at the end containing Twin Viper and return to the front hall.  Go
    into the door just below the stairs leading right and get the chest containing
    Silver M-Phone.  Leave here and go up the stairs.
    
    At the top go right.  When you enter this room go North at the first fork and
    walk slowly.  Examine the ground in front of you as you walk and just before
    you reach the door you'll find '(3) Right 59' written on the floor.  Enter the
    room on the right to find a Magic Source.  Head back to the top of the stairs
    and go left.  Get the chest in the circular room containing Enemy Launcher,
    examine the chest again to find '(1) Right 36.'  The room North of this one
    contains the safe.  There is an optional boss inside, you are not required to
    actually open it.

    |  You can come back and fight this boss later in the game if you wish but   |
    |  it is very possible to defeat him now.  First of all you're going to need |
    |  the Big Guard Enemy Skill so if you don't have it yet, go back and get    |
    |  it.  Second of all I'd recommend slowing down your battle speed to give   |
    |  yourself time to think and act.  Get all your characters to max limits    |
    |  before the battle, and start the fight by using all your limit breaks at  |
    |  once.  Follow that with a casting of big guard and some of your most      |
    |  powerful magic and spells.  The most important thing to do in this fight  |
    |  is cast Bio and poison him, the damage will really add up by the end of   |
    |  the battle, and often end up being the finishing blow.  Use Cure or Cure  |
    |  2 if you have it to stay healed, keep in mind that the barrier from Big   |
    |  Guard lowers your healing amount, but it doesn't affect White Wind.  When |
    |  he takes a lot of damage he'll switch to either a purple or orange form,  |
    |  hit the purple with all the magic you have like summon spells and         |
    |  Aqualung for example.  Hit the orange form with all your physical attacks |
    |  and limit breaks.  Keeping these things in mind you shouldn't have        |
    |  trouble coming up with your own way to win.                               |
    |                                                                            |
    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    After the fight pick to the Odin Materia and Key to the Basement.
    
    Skip the tabbed section if you did not defeat the Lost Number.
    
         Go to the room on the right side of the upper floor with the secret door
         leading to the basement.  At the bottom run down the first hall, before
         you come to the library in the basement go into the room to the North
         just before you enter.  Here you will find a coffin, examine it and a
         scene occurs.  Choose "Talk about Sephiroth" when the options presents
         itself.  After the next scene examine the coffin again and choose "Who
         are you?"  You'll have a chance to name Vincent, then leave the room.  As
         you approach the stairs back up Vincent appears and agrees to join your
         party.
    
    Head into the library room and go towards the back for a scene, then pick up
    the green Destruct Materia.
    
    Leave Nibelheim and save your game.  Proceed through Nibelheim to the North
    exit and onward towards Mt. Nibel.

            Powersoul........_____
    
    
    When you first enter it's a simple matter of following the path.  When you get
    to the higher section of the area you'll come to a fork.  Go North and wind
    around the mountain to find a Rune Blade.  Return to the fork and continue
    left.  You'll come to a rock, on the left is the bridge, on the right leading
    up is a long path that winds and eventually leads you to the top where you'll
    find a Plus Barette.  Now head across the bridge.
    
    On the other side of the bridge there are a number of pipes.  Ignore them for
    now and go down the stairs, then left and down the white ladder.  Below you is
    another white ladder which doesn't reach all the way down.  Examine it to
    knock it but don't descend, instead go into the door to the left.
    
    Head South from the reactor and you'll reach a thin path.  Stay on the path
    until you reach a cave at the Southeast corner.  Inside, go North then West to
    find a chest containing Sniper CR.  Go back to the Northeast corner of the
    cave and take the middle of the three paths leading Southwest.  Exit the cave
    to the South.
    
    To the left of the fountain is the Elemental Materia.  Go South into another
    cave.  Backtrack all the way to the door behind the reactor leading back to
    the room with the five pipes.  At the top take the second pipe to the right.
    It'll drop you on a large rock with a Powersoul on the ground in front of you.
    Save your game and go back up to the top.  Take the second from the left pipe
    and open the chest to receive an All Materia.  Save your game again.
    
    Note in this area you can fight a large dragon enemy who not only uses the
    Flamethrower Enemy Skill, but also has a Gold Armlet that can be stolen.
    
    Examine the large monster to the right of the save point to initiate a
    battle...

    |  Be sure to equip an Enemy Skill Materia before this battle, the boss will |
    |  cast Trine quite often and it's a rather powerful spell you can learn.    |
    |  Surviving it is no laughing matter though, it'll deal 500+ damage to your |
    |  entire party so make sure you never let yourself stay below that amount   |
    |  of HP for long.  Use spells like Cure 2 and White Wind to heal, and Big   |
    |  Guard for support.  As for attacking Aqualung is great, so is Bio.        |
    |  Poisoning this boss is possible and helps a great deal.  If you are using |
    |  Vincent do NOT use his limit break, the Galian Beast has a randomly used  |
    |  fire elemental attack that heals this boss.  When he gets down to low HP  |
    |  he'll start to cast Cure 2 on himself so that's the cue to go on the      |
    |  offensive otherwise he may end up gaining more HP than he loses each      |
    |  turn.  If you're looking for a sure way to deal damage, the combination   |

    Go directly North when you enter the town and speak to the old man standing
    outside the house.  Speak to him twice and agree to take a look at the rocket.
    He'll offer you the Yoshiyuki.  Enter the house straight East and find the
    chest containing Power Source.  Leave the house and go into the one to the
    North.  There's a chest here containing Drill Arm.  Go out the back door for a
    scene.
    
    From the main part of town go North past all the houses to reach the rocket.
    Climb over all the wires and go up the large set of stairs followed by the
    large ladder.  Enter the rocket and speak to the person inside.  You'll have a
    chance to rename Cid.  Ask him about the rocket and listen to what he says.
    Leave the rocket and return to the North-most house in town.  A scene occurs
    when you enter.
    
    When the scene ends talk to Palmer in the backyard...

    |  Palmer isn't nearly as hard as the Materia Keeper.  He has one rather     |
    |  weak attack called Mako Gun that can only hit one person.  Stay healed    |
    |  moderately after every couple of hits and rely simply on normal attacks,  |
    |  Enemy Skills like Trine and Aqualung.  Similar to the most recent bosses  |
    |  Palmer can also be poisoned but it really isn't necessary since you       |
    |  shouldn't have any problem racking up 6000 damage.                        |
    |                                                                            |

    Watch the scene after the fight ends.
    
    With the Tiny Bronco you are now able to explore a number of new areas in the
    world.  At this point there isn't anything that particularly stands out which
    wouldn't be more appropriately done later in the game (like the Wutai
    sidequest) so ride you Tiny Bronco towards Cosmo Canyon.  There is a shallow
    river that leads through the middle of the continent, cross it and dock you
    plane at the beach near the Gold Saucer desert.  Run North to North Corel and
    take the tram to the Gold Saucer.

            Keystone........_____
            Elixir.........._____
    
    Enter the Gold Saucer and head to the Battle Square.  Up the stairs and to the
    right of the desk you'll find a place called "Dio's Show Room."  Examine the
    stone upon the pedestal in the centre to trigger a scene.  Agree to entertain
    him in order to borrow the Keystone.
    
    You'll have to fight your way through the battle arena here.  It doesn't
    matter how well you perform but if you can manage to win eight battles you'll
    be rewarded with a Choco Feather and Protect Vest.  Neither of these items are
    particularly rare though.
    
    At this point if you go to the speed square it is possible to win the Umbrella
    for Aeris, quite a powerful weapon.  Refer to the Gold Saucer section for more
    information.
    
    Return to the station and attempt to leave the Gold Saucer.  Someone will
    inform you that the tram is out of order.  Watch the scene that follows,
    choose whether or not you want a recap from Cloud.
    
    After you've all gone to bed comes the date scene.  Your most likely
    candidates for this date are Aeris, Tifa, Yuffie and Barret in that order.
    Unless you're following a specific dating guide you have virtually no chance
    of ending up with either Yuffie or Barret.
    
    Head to the Event Square for a show.  You'll end up on stage for this
    production, your choices don't really matter in any way so have fun with it.
    Once the show is over you'll find yourself on the gondola.  Just watch the
    scene here.
    
    After the scene an event will occur with Cait Sith.  Chase him from place to
    place, to battle, to speed, to wonder (hiding behind a Chocobo) to Chocobo and
    finally the end.  Watch the scene and find yourself back in your room.
    Examine the machine at the upper right corner to receive Elixir.
    
    The next morning you need to create a party that includes Aeris and leave the
    Gold Saucer via the tram.  Go back to the Tiny Bronco.
    
    The following is optional.  Skip the tabbed section if you wish.
    
         You can acquire Aeris' final limit break if you wish.  Ride the Tiny
         Bronco near Nibelheim and get your buggy.  Ride it all the way to Costa
         del Sol and drive it directly into the town.  Take the cargo ship back to
         the Eastern continent, then ride your buggy to the Northern area, there
         will be a river you can cross and a cave.  There is a man in there, this
         man will give you a special item based on how many battles you've fought.
         When the last two digits of the amount of battles you've fought are equal
         and odd you will get a piece of Mythril, if they're equal and even you
         get either a Bolt Ring or Ice Ring.  So if you want the Mythril you'll
         have to have fought 11 battles, 133 battles, 255 battles etc.  You can
         only get one piece of Mythril.  When you have it return to the Tiny
         Bronco and ride it near Gongaga there is a small house to the East.
         Inside the house the man will allow you to open either of his boxes in
         exchange for the Mythril.  The large box contains a pathetic Gold Armlet
         while the small box has Great Gospel, Aeris' level 4 limit break.
    
    Head East from the Gold Saucer to the Eastern continent and dock on the first
    beach you see, there should be a large temple to the Northeast, this is the
    Temple of the Ancients.

            Maiden's Kiss... 150 Gil
            Tent............ 500 Gil
    
    Watch the scene, then proceed up into the temple and an event will occur.  As
    you place the Keystone you are brought down into the Temple of the Ancients.
    Go along the path, ignore the set of stairs leading up and go down the ramp.
    Enter the small arch on your right at the bottom of the ramp and climb down
    the vines.  Go right and open the chest to receive a Trident.  On your right
    is a large set of vines below an archway on the ledge above.  Climb the vines
    and go left around the arch.  Head in the stairs, grab the Turbo Ether to the
    Southwest and then follow the little bearded guy up the vines.  Grab the pink
    Mind Source and enter the door.
    
    Open the chest to receive Silver Rifle, then talk to the person.  You can
    purchase items and rest here, but make sure you understand that you can't get
    out of here before you save your game.  Leave the room and go down the vines.
    Head Southwest and down the stairs.  Climb down the vines at the end and get
    the chest containing Rocket Punch.  Continue forward up the next small set of
    vines.  Go Northeast up the stairs and through the arch, then down the set of
    stairs leading right.  Climb the large set of vines and pick up the Luck Plus
    Materia on the top.  Go back down the large vines and through the arch again
    to the small set of vines you last climbed up.  From there head Northwest into
    the next area.
    
    In this section you have to move yourself into a position such that you are
    always in the arched open part of the rolling rocks.  It's not particularly
    hard just make sure you keep moving.  Go North the first chance you get and
    pick up the yellow Morph Materia.  Keep doing the same thing until you reach
    the Eastern side.  Watch the scene that occurs here.
    
    Go back East to find another little man where you can rest and save.  The next
    area to the Southeast is a large clock where you can freely control the hands.
    When given the choice, choose to move it yourself.  Use a combination of
    triangle and circle to get the hands in a position where you can walk from one
    path to the other.  The contents of each path are as follows:
    
    Note: Do not cross when the second hand is anywhere near, it can knock you to
    the floor below.  There is however a benefit to getting knocked down once.
    When you land you'll fight a couple of moderately hard dragonfly enemies and
    after you can open the chest to receive the Nail Bat.  Leave the room and
    you'll be back near the entrance of the temple.  Navigate your way to the
    clock again.
    
         Path I:  Monster in a box
         Path II: Dead end
         Path III: Monster in a box
         Path IIII: Treasure Chest - Princess Guard
         Path V: Treasure Chest - Ribbon
         Path VI: You next destination
         Path VII: Treasure Chest - Trumpet Shell
         Path VIII: Treasure Chest - Megalixir
         Path IX: Dead end
         Path X: Entrance
         Path XI: Dead end
         Path XII: Nothing
    
    So basically you'll want to visit IIII, V, VII, and VIIII to get the treasure
    before heading down to path VI.
    
    When you go South you'll find a number of cave doors.  Here you have to catch
    the little man before you can proceed, each time he goes in a door he'll
    appear in a different on.  You have to enter the one that he will come out of,
    here is the legend for which door leads where.
    
    Note:  On the left side of the upper and middle ledges you can jump down to
    the lower one by pressing circle when prompted.  For the legend, 2-2 would
    mean second row second door, and the arrow points to which door it leads to.
    
         1-1 -> 2-3
         1-2 -> Out
         2-1 -> 3-2
         2-2 -> 3-4
         2-3 -> 2-1
         2-4 -> 3-1
         3-1 -> 2-2
         3-2 -> 3-3
         3-3 -> 2-4
         3-4 -> 1-1
    
    After catching him rest and save your game.  Drop to the lowest part and open
    the chest to find a Work Glove.  Enter the bottom right door to reach the top
    and head inside the now unlocked room.
    
    Watch the scene and proceed right whenever you have control until you reach
    the end...

    |  Depending on your level of preparation the Red Dragon can be either easy  |
    |  or hard.  Equip a Fire Ring on someone as well as Elemental paired with   |
    |  fire Materia in an armour slot.  If you're using Vincent don't use his    |
    |  limit break.  Start the battle with Big Guard if you have it, then attack |
    |  with Aqualung, Bio to poison him, Odin summon if you have it, otherwise   |
    |  Titan.  Limit breaks are great, Aeris' limit heals 50% of everyone's max  |
    |  HP which can be helpful, Big Guard won't reduce the amount it heals.      |
    |                                                                            |

    After the fight pick up the red Bahamut summon Materia in front of you.  Head
    right to the small pyramid floating near the wall.  Examine it and watch the
    scene.  Choose to touch the object.  When it's over leave the room and save,
    be sure to equip that Bahamut Materia on someone.  Also equip a Aeris with a
    piece of armour you can purchase anywhere, like the Gold Armlet.
    
    Return to the clock and take the only path you can, North.  Examine the door
    and watch the scene...

    |  Watch out for this one, it's definitely your hardest battle thus far.     |
    |  You party should be primarily in the back row with Big Guard for          |
    |  protection.  Use the Long Range Materia and hopefully you brought either  |
    |  Vincent or Barret with you.  If not it's ok.  Focus on physical attacks   |
    |  the entire battle, especially limit breaks.  Have someone cast both Odin  |
    |  and Bahamut, you'll also need a dedicated healer for the fight.  If you   |
    |  can keep her alive Aeris makes a good choice because of her Healing Wind  |
    |  limit break.  Don't let anyone stay below 600 HP for long otherwise his   |
    |  single character targeting attacks are likely to pick you off.  Again,    |
    |  physical attacks are the way to go.  The majority of magic spells won't   |
    |  even dent him, good luck.                                                 |

    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    After the fight a number of events occur including a scene where you can move
    but have no control over what's going on.  Witness everything until you once
    again have control of Cloud.
    
    Leave Gongaga Village and get on the Tiny Bronco which is docked to the South.
    You need to head to Bone Village now which is on the Northern continent.  To
    reach it go through the Western continent via the river and head North when
    you reach the other side.  Dock you plane on the beach at the Southern part of
    the Northern continent and Bone Village should be right in front of you.

    When you arrive speak to the person sitting in the doorway.  He'll sell you
    items but also allow you to dig for treasure.  You're trying to find the Lunar
    Harp which will allow you to proceed through the forest without getting lost.
    Tell him the Lunar Harp is what you're looking for an you'll be able to start
    searching.  By pressing square you can order a worker for 100 Gil and have up
    to five.  Following placing the workers and igniting the bomb the workers will
    face the direction of the Lunar Harp bu not move from where you placed them,
    so you have to stand in the line of vision of each one.  Basically stand in a
    position so that all the workers you hired are looking at you.  The Lunar Harp
    is buried just Southwest of the tent on the second level up the ladder, so
    place the majority of your workers in that area, but spread them around.  Once
    you select where to dig check the chest in the morning and it should
    containing the Lunar Harp.
    
    When choosing "Good treasure" instead of the Lunar Harp you can dig up a
    Buntline, Megalixir and Mop randomly using the same method.
    
    On the second level of the town proceed into the forest to the West.  Go down
    the path to the next forest screen and it will tell you the sleeping forest
    awoke.  In this area don't leave yet.  Wait some time and you should see a red
    spot randomly appearing and disappearing.  Chase this spot down and when you
    catch it, you'll receive the Kjata summon Materia.  Proceed North.
    
    On this screen go straight up and under the log to find a chest containing
    Water Ring.  Return to the bottom and take the left path up through the log
    and exit North.  Walk the path to the world map.  From there your only
    possible destination is the Forgotten City.

    When you first enter the city you'll come to a 4-way split.  Head left.  In
    the next area go into the house and get the chest containing Magic Source as
    well as saving your game.  Leave the house and continue Northeast.  Descend
    the spiral stairs and open the chest to find Aurora Armlet.  Return to the 4-
    way split and head East.  At the next fork go right.  Grab the Guard Source at
    the top of the house and take the left path at the fork.  At the first branch
    go up and enter the house.  Open the chest to find an Elixir then climb the
    ladder.  Deny the request to take a rest, and pick up the Enemy Skill Materia
    behind the last bed.  Leave the house and re-enter, approach the bed and this
    time agree to rest.  Watch the scene during the night.
    
    Head back to the 4-way split and go North.  Enter the house at the end, run to
    the top and pick up the green Comet Materia.  Run 360 degrees down and you'll
    see a faintly glowing blue path leading Southwest.  Descend the crystal ramp
    to the bottom and save your game.  Head down and jump from pillar to pillar to
    reach the central platform.  During the next scene speak to Aeris once, then

    |  If you remember that Water Ring you just picked up outside of the         |

    Watch the events following the scene and get ready to change discs.
    
    On disc 2, follow where Sephiroth went by going Northeast.  There's a large
    spiky thing here, before climbing it to around it to the left and do a U turn
    to reach a chest on the right side containing Viper Halberd.  Now approach the
    lowest spine sticking out and you'll begin to jump upward.  Run in a loop
    toward the top, go through the little hole and run down the outer shell to
    reach the cave on the West side.
    
    Inside the cave you'll see two large cracks in the wall above you.  Step into
    the second one and climb up.  When you reach the top choose left and climb the
    next one.  Jump off to the right at the top but immediately jump back on and
    choose up.  Ascend to reach the treasure chest containing Bolt Armlet.  Go
    down to the previous edge and head right.
    
    Climb down at the next crack to find a HypnoCrown in the chest.  Go up, the
    jump off left or right and back on again.  At the top get the chest on the
    right side containing Megalixir.  Go left to the next crack and climb it to
    reach a large ladder.  Go all the way down the ladder to the very bottom.
    Hidden behind a rock here is the purple Magic Plus Materia.  Take the ladder
    all the way to the top and through the door.  Pick up the Power Source and
    leave the cave.
    
    Follow the linear path through the snow here to reach a small town to the
    Northwest.

    Go inside the house East of the entrance.  Beside the woman in the rocking
    chair you'll see a conspicuous map on the wall, examine it and take it.  Enter
    the room beside the map and take the Hero Drink and Vaccine.  North of this
    house is the inn, upstairs you'll find an X-Potion hidden below the window.
    The house just North of the weapon shop on the West side has a Turbo Ether in
    the basement.
    
    Now you need to head to the North end of town and speak to the woman.  Tell
    her you're going anyway and a scene will occur.  When you get a transparent
    menu showing you to dodge the punch, simply press circle, then left and you'll
    dodge it.  If you fail you'll wind up in the basement of the house where the
    Turbo Ether was.  Either way return to the entrance of town and go into the
    house directly in the middle.  Speak to the little boy sitting on the cushion
    in the back, then examine the Snowboard and you'll obtain it.  Go to the North
    part of town and run past the woman to the East.

    Here you'll get your first chance to snowboard, this little game can be played
    as many times as you like by either returning here or going to the Gold
    Saucer.  This run in particular has no rewards so it doesn't matter how well
    you do.  The only thing that matters is which way you go at the two forks,
    there are four possible destinations.  For the sake of this walkthrough take
    the left path at both forks.
    
    After you land head North, at the top you'll see a bag lying on the ground
    containing a Mind Source.  Head East twice to reach a large open area.
    There's a potion on the ice near the top of the screen, grab it and head
    Northwest.
    
    There is a puzzle here involving little ice islands.  When you step on one all
    the ones around it will invert, meaning if they're suck they will surface and
    vice versa.  There are a number of solutions of course, here is one example:
    
    Note:  The numbers indicate that you will land on this island twice.  The
    first time you land on it take the path indicated by the number 1, the second
    time by the number 2.

    Return to the area of land right on the edge of the water.  Head North to the
    top of the screen then go East.  In the next area go East again, followed by
    Northeast, Northeast and Northeast.  You should find yourself in an area with
    a number of branching paths.  Head North, then Northwest.  On the second
    Northwest path near the top along the curved section of wall is the hard to
    see light blue Added Cut Materia.  Keep going Northwest.
    
    Here you'll find a large hot spring.  Approach the water and choose to touch
    it when prompted.  Head Northwest until you reach a huge world map type area.
    As you walk the snow will blow your camera in different directions but you can
    place markers with circle.  As you run in the direction you are trying to
    reach keep placing makers and whenever the snow changes your camera, verify
    that you are still going in the same direction by seeing how the markers are
    aligned.
    
    If at any point you collapse and end up back at the hut, going South will take
    you right to this field.
    
    On the field your destination is located North from the hotspring field
    entrance and East of the cabin entrance.  You'll come to an open snow field,
    run East to a thinner path.  Head East two more times, then down the hill to
    find a cave.  Inside the cave speak to the person to initiate a battle,
    despite the music she is just a normal enemy.  Be sure to steal a Circlet
    though.  If the fight does not occur it's because you did not touch the hot
    spring.  Following the fight pick up the Alexander Materia.  You need to get
    to the cabin now, either return to the field and head North or run around
    until you collapse.
    
    In the cabin, the person will give you an explanation of mountain climbing.
    Save your game, then leave the cabin and head North.

    Climb up to the first ledge.  Each time you see a red flag you can press
    circle to grab on and climb to the next ledge.  Also don't forget to keep your
    body temperature about 30 by pressing square rapidly.  This cannot be done
    while in mid-climb.
    
    Note that if you encounter the large Stilva enemies you can learn the Magic
    Breath Enemy Skill from them, you can also learn the Bad Breath enemy skill
    from the Malboros out the outer side of the cliff while climbing from ledge to
    ledge.  To learn this skill without getting killed be sure to equip the two
    Ribbon accessories you should have found by this point.  Same applies to magic
    breath, but equip armour and accessories that protect/drain fire, ice or
    lightning.  Note that Stilva also has the Trine Enemy Skill.
    
    There is only one path leading to the cave above you so keep climbing.  When
    you enter the cave go North into the door, then up the stairs on your left and
    South again.  Go across the bridge to the East.  Continue East on the other
    side, you can actually pass through the wall.  Open the chest here to receive
    a Ribbon.  Go back to the East-side of the bridge and head North.  Go across
    the bridge, open the chest to get a Javelin and go into the Northwest door.
    
    Cross the bridge and run to the very top.  Push the rock down and it will
    remove the spikes that block your path.  Return to that part and head North
    through down the now open path.  Stay on the path until it leads you outside
    to the cliff ledge.
    
    Start climbing, choose to go up when you reach a fork.  The next time you come
    to a fork choose to go right.  Keep climbing and you'll soon reach another
    entrance to the mountain.
    
    There is a save point at the Northwest corner of this large room.  You can't
    reach any treasure chests at this point so head to the Northeast corner to
    find a chest containing an Elixir and a door.  Follow the path outside until
    it leads back in, grab the chest containing Fire Armlet on your right.  As you
    attempt to run under the icicles a battle will trigger.  You'll have to fight
    four of this same battle, each time Beta is the best choice to wipe everything
    out, Aqualung works well as does Vincent's limit break and the Alexander
    summon.  When asked if you would like to jump down choose no after every
    battle.  When the final icicle falls go left and open the chest to find a
    Megalixir, despite what it tells you that you found.  Run along the edge and
    when you near the chest on the right side you'll be asked if you wish to jump,
    choose "Yes."
    
    Head back to the save point and open the chest containing Speed Source.  Save
    and proceed through the now-open large door to the North.  Open the chest to
    receive Enhance Sword and follow the path around.  Head through the cave and
    out to the cliff.
    
    Start climbing, choose up at the first fork and up at the second as well.
    Back inside the cave be sure to save you game.  Exit Southeast and watch the
    scene...

    |  If you're looking to guarantee a win in this battle it's simply a matter  |
    |  of preparation.  Equip one person with a Fire Armlet and Ice Ring,        |
    |  another with an Aurora Armlet and a Fire Ring, the last person attach two |
    |  Elemental Materia to Fire and Ice in their armour slot.  Now 90% of the   |
    |  attacks in this battle will deal either no damage or heal you.  The only  |
    |  thing you have to watch out for is their 1000 damage party attack when    |
    |  they die and their Earth based attacks.  Because of their final attack    |
    |  you will probably want to kill one before the other so you have time to   |
    |  heal between them.  Cast Bahamut, Odin, Alexander as well as Aqualung for |
    |  damage.  Physical attacks work, spells like Beta and Magic Breath are     |
    |  definitely spells to avoid.  Also don't forget to steal a Protect Ring    |
    |  from Schizo (Right.)                                                      |

    Climb up the side of the mountain on the right side of the door.  When you
    reach the top a scene occurs.

    Head down the stone slope to the left.  Before you reach the bottom take all
    the Materia off one of your party members, because you'll be forced to use
    Tifa in a second if you aren't already.  At the bottom rearrange your party to
    include Tifa and continue West.
    
    In the next area jump down and head West.  Grab the shiny red Neo Bahamut
    summon Materia.  Go a little left then North and save your game.  When you try
    to continue West a scene will trigger.  When it ends go West.
    
    Here you'll find a large wind barrier, as time passes it'll go from violent to
    calm.  You must pass through it while it's calm.  Judging when it's calm and
    when it's not isn't so hard, what makes this difficult is judging the depth of
    where the barrier actually is.  If you happen to get hit by it you only have
    to fight a normal enemy.    Speak to the two cloaked people to receive a Hi-
    Potion and Ether then run through it and head North.
    
    Stick to the path here and make your way to the top, be sure to get the Kaiser
    Knuckle from the chest on the second curve.  In the next area there's another
    wind barrier.  You now have to wait for the win to calm and also skillfully
    dodge the wavy wind bursts.  The next map there's a scene and then...

    |  This will be your final 'not possible to lose' battle so enjoy it.  Equip |
    |  a Fire Ring on someone and a Fire Armlet on someone else.  Every last one |
    |  of Jenova's attacks are fire based so hold down the circle button and     |
    |  wait for the fight to end.  For damage, if holding the circle button      |
    |  doesn't suit you, Magic Breath works quite well.                          |
    |                                                                            |

    After the battle watch the scene and pick up the Black Materia.  You have to
    give it to someone, it doesn't matter who as long as they accept it.  Barret
    works fine.  Speak to Tifa and you'll be able to continue.  Just above you is
    a yellow object, pick it up to receive the MP Turbo Materia (which is actually
    a light blue Materia.)  To the left of the save point is a chest containing
    Poison Ring.  Save and head North.  Same idea as before except slightly
    harder.  Get through the wind barrier and go North, a lengthy scene occurs at
    the end.  You'll have a chance to move at times, but for the sake of avoiding
    spoilers, I'll simply say it's not hard to figure out what to do.

    When you finally get control of Tifa, speak to Barret.  As Barret head down
    and save your game.  Go down the stairs and head Southwest, then Southwest
    again.  Watch the scene here.  You'll have to fight a couple of normal enemies
    but it's nothing too hard, in fact you can even run away.  Head down and
    examine the door, then watch the next scene.
    
    Run back up and talk to Cait Sith.  Leave the room, at the fork go Southeast,
    then Southwest out the door.  If you recruited Yuffie before you'll find her
    here posing as a reporter, talk to her and she'll join you.  Run to the
    elevator and press the button to go up.  Approach the airship for a scene.
    
    Now you'll be in control of Tifa, you need to unlock yourself which isn't too
    hard.  Hold X to drag the key toward you with your leg.  Now push triangle and
    X to put the key in your mouth.  Push triangle and circle to unlock your left
    hand, then circle to unlock your right hand.  Examine the glowing light on
    your left to stop the gas.  Try the door and watch the scene.
    
    Climb down the side of the building until you hit the bottom.  Head North and
    run the length of the cannon.  Soon Scarlet appears and you get to play a
    little minigame, press circle to slap.  Whoever wins makes no difference.
    After the slap war it says to run to the end of the cannon, you can run if you
    want or you can head in the complete opposite direction.  Either way the same
    scene follows.
    
    Enter the ship and go downstairs, across the walkway is the bridge of the
    ship.  Talk to your entire party, especially Red XIII.  Talk to Cid and then
    to the pilot.  Now go back and enter the operation room beside the stairs.
    Talk to the man and form your party as well as saving your game.  Go back to
    the bridge and talk to the pilot, choose "We're going" to gain control of the
    ship.
    
    Now that you've got the Highwind there are a number of things you can do.  At
    this moment the most obvious one is the Wutai sidequest, check out the
    sidequests section for more info.
    
    Your next destination is Mideel, a town on the Southeast-most crescent shaped
    continent.  You'll find it in the middle of a forest patch.

    When you enter the shops you'll always notice a person being chased by a
    Chocobo.  Speak to this person each time you see them in a different shop,
    also speak to the Chocobo and if you have a Mimett Greens it'll react.  Choose
    to scratch behind its ears and you'll receive the Contain Materia.
    
    Go into the weapon shop and attempt to open the door at the back.  Leave the
    shop and go across the bridge to the West.  Behind the person to the right of
    the house examine the ground to find a key.  Return to the Weapon shop and try
    using it on that door.  When it breaks off choose to tell the man the truth.
    For being honest you get a Curse Ring.
    
    Proceed back to the town entrance and head North towards the other end.  As
    you walk a scene will occur.
    
    As Cid go to the operation room and create a party.  Return to the bridge and
    talk to the pilot.  Go back into Mideel and inside the house beside the two
    men who were talking about Cloud to find an Elixir.  Now head to North Corel.

    Enter North Corel and leave via the North exit.  Cross the large bridge and
    backtrack all the way to the reactor.  You'll fight a quick battle when you
    arrive.  After the battle watch the scene.
    
    After the fight when you're on the train, press up and triangle back and forth
    until you catch up.  Each train car has a battle on it that get progressively
    harder.  Go as fast as possible, Enemy Skills like Magic Breath are very
    helpful here.  If you have the time, try to steal the Warrior Bangle from the
    fourth enemy, the flying robotic winged thing.  You can't find this anywhere
    else.
    
    After the fifth fight against the single soldier, you'll have to stop the
    train.  This is very easy if you know what you're doing.  Press circle until
    everyone is done speaking then press either Up and triangle or Down and X at
    the same time.  Wait for some more conversation and press either of those one
    more time.  Despite going a lot faster the train should soon stop.
    
    If you did all this within the 10 minute time limit you get the Huge Materia.
    Walk down into the town for a scene.  A little boy will give you the powerful
    Ultima Materia, you must level this up at least once before you can cast the
    spell.
    
    Getting the Huge Materia is not a required event.  If you failed to do it
    withing the time limit Corel is destroyed and you cannot get that particular
    Huge Materia under any circumstance.  You can still get the Ultima Materia but
    you have to pay 50,000 Gil for it.
    
    In the morning leave the inn and enter the house at the bottom of the ramp to
    the South.  Speak to the woman in the green cap to receive Catastrophe,
    Barret's level 4 limit break.
    
    Exit North Corel and fly to Fort Condor, East of Junon.

    his fight against the Shinra.
    
    Climb the rope and the ladder to reach the main area then speak with the man
    at the table.  Afterwards go up the ladder to the North and take the stairs.
    Speak with the man standing on the box, you can get some instructions on how
    to play.  Choose "Enough" and then say you're ready to begin.
    
    Here you can play the Fort Condor minigame.  There is however a way to bypass
    all of this, not only do you receive no punishment for doing so, but you also
    won't waste and money on units and get a great piece of armour for winning.
    Instead of setting up your units just press X and start the game.  Push R1
    twice to increase the game speed and tap your fingers until the enemy reaches
    the base.  When they do...

    |  Just focus on staying alive this battle.  Cast Big Guard and use White    |

    Watch the scene here.  What follows is probably the longest event sequence in
    the game.  Wait until you have control of your character again.
    
    As Tifa go up and talk to the Northern image of Cloud.  When he fishes talking
    approach Nibelheim and watch the scene.  After it ends talk to the image of
    Cloud to the West.  Following this head East and talk to that image of Cloud.
    Go back North and talk to the Cloud in front of the entrance to Nibelheim and
    enter.  Watch the scene here.
    
    After everything finally comes together speak to Cloud in the very centre.
    Some events will follow.
    
    Back on the ship try to leave the operation room to create your party.  Listen
    to what Cait Sith has to say then speak to the pilot and go.  Fly your airship
    and get off at Junon.
    
    Enter Junon and ride the elevator up.  Go down the main road, there will be a
    quick scene where Cloud inquires about something being missing... you'll
    likely notice if you take a look in the background.  Continue to the next
    area.  Instead of proceeding to the next section of road, head Southwest.
    After the little run in with the soldiers go into the door at the end of the
    road.  Fight a normal battle here.

    Head Southeast, then Southwest, then Southeast and save your game.  Go through
    the door and ride the elevator down.  Proceed North and pass through the
    underwater tunnel until you reach another elevator.  Cross the extremely long
    walkway and save your game again.
    
    Go North and exit East.  When you approach the door you'll encounter a couple
    of Shinra soldiers.  At the next gate you'll encounter two more.  These are

    |  This is definitely the hardest boss since the Demon's Gate in the         |
    |  Temple of the Ancients.  First of all Big Guard is a must, and even       |
    |  MBarrier + All.  You have to lessen the damage done by its Lapis Laser    |
    |  which it will cast quite often and deal 1500+ damage to everyone.  If     |
    |  you're looking for a way to go on a strong offensive, Magic Breath is     |
    |  probably the best overall source of damage.  Ultima works well too if     |
    |  you're actually got it leveled.  The boss can randomly grab your          |
    |  party members and keep them from fighting so be sure to take out the      |
    |  arms quickly, which is why all-hit spells like Magic Breath work so       |
    |  well.  If you've got Megalixirs piling up in your inventory there's       |
    |  no shame in using them, Magic Breath will quickly drain your MP.          |
    |  Backup damage includes lightning magic as well as Trine, and of course    |
    |  good old limit breaks.                                                    |
    |                                                                            |

    After the fight go forward and left to find a chest containing Battle Trumpet.
    Go now to the big gray submarine.  Before going up the stairs grab the two
    chests for Scimitar and Leviathan Scales.  Fight your way now into the sub.
    
    Save your game and enter the bridge.  Fight or tie them up it doesn't make a
    difference.  Sit in the seat and prepare to pilot the sub.
    
    This particular mission is extremely easy.  You should be able to do it in
    about 7-8 seconds.  There is a red sub just ahead of where you start.  Drive
    forward by tapping the triangle button until you catch up then let go of the
    button.  Face the direction of the red sub and you should see a square box
    around it.  Begin tapping square to fire torpedoes.  Assuming you are locked
    on and they're hitting the sub will go down in approximately 4-5 volleys of
    torpedoes.
    
    Following the little mission the sub is yours.  There are a couple things you
    should do at this point so you won't have to come back and do them later.
    Ride your sub on the surface as close as you can to Bone Village, then dive.
    Head West in the chasm until you reach the end.  Look Northeast and you should
    find a tiny little tunnel, go to the end and you'll find the Key to the
    Ancients.  You'll need this later and now you won't have to come back.
    
    The other thing to do is to do is to ride your sub as far Southeast as
    possible on the surface then dive.  You should be around a little grassy patch
    on the sea floor, look around and the red submarine should stand out quite a
    lot.  Approach it and you'll receive the Huge Materia.
    
    Ride your sub to Junon and dock it.  Fly your airship to Rocket Town.

    |  This fight is best fought as you would any normal fight with one          |
    |  important exception.  Cast Aqualung or Magic Breath to remove the         |
    |  soldiers then steal from him!  The Ziedrich has the most defensive        |
    |  power in the game.  Besides that focus on Enemy Skills with lots of       |
    |  physical attacks since he will use MBarrier.                              |
    |                                                                            |

    In the rocket there is one more significantly easier fight.  Now enter the
    cockpit and watch the scene.
    
    When you once again have control of Cloud go up the ladder on your right.  At
    the top is the Huge Materia but you must enter a specific combination to get
    it out.  You'll get clues from Cid that may or may not eventually lead you to
    to the right answer, but if you can't figure it out the code is as follows:
    
                              Circle, Square, X, X
    
    Once you input it the Huge Materia is yours.  Climb back down and head South
    past the main door and descend the ladder.  As you run past, a scene occurs.
    Watch the events that follow.
    
    Back on your airship speak to the pilot and fly as close as you can to Cosmo
    Canyon.  Land your ship and enter.

    will receive Bahamut ZERO.  To ride the machine back down examine any of the
    Huge Materia and choose "Go back down."
    
    You'll quickly find yourself in the airship.  Talk to the pilot and fly your
    ship into the little canyon behind Bone Village right beside the Forgotten
    City and go inside.

    Take a left at the first fork and follow the path past the house up to the
    Northeast.  Go around the top path to the other side, through one of the
    cracks and down the stairs to reach the centre platform.  You should have
    picked up the Key to the Ancients when I specified to.  If not here it is
    again in the tabbed paragraph:
    
         Ride your sub on the surface as close as you can to Bone Village, then
         dive.  Head West in the chasm until you reach the end.  Look Northeast
         and you should find a tiny little tunnel, go to the end and you'll find
         the Key to the Ancients.
    
    Approach Bugenhagen and watch the scene.  When it's over attempt to leave to
    trigger a cutscene.
    
    Once everything is said and done leave the Forgotten City.  When you arrive on
    the world map another event occurs.  Fly the airship to Midgar and wait.
    Weapon will slowly approach, you can use this time to prepare yourself for the
    coming battle.  When weapon reaches the shore get off your ship and walk into
    it to initiate battle...

    |  Make sure you equip some armour and accessories that are immune to        |

    |  the Steal Materia as you can get the unique Rising Sun weapon for         |
    |  Yuffie.  In the actual fight start by casting the most powerful magic     |
    |  you have like Ultima, Bolt3, Magic Breath and of course Bahamut ZERO.     |
    |  He'll use two attacks on you,  a fire based one you can block and a       |
    |  stomping attack you can easily heal afterward.  At some point in the      |
    |  battle he may switch to an immunity to magic, you'll have to start        |
    |  using any limit breaks you've built up here.  If a countdown begins       |
    |  then it means he is charging his Diamond Flash attack which hits your     |
    |  entire party for quite a bit of damage and causes the Silence status.     |
    |                                                                            |

    ramp.  At the end run across the pipes to the West to find a chest with an
    Elixir, run in the opposite direction to find a chest with a Megalixir.
    Return to the ladder you came down on.
    
    Descend the large set of stairs, as well as the ladder at the bottom.  When
    you reach the bottom of the ladder head West and then North.  Climb the large
    ladder at the end, you'll find a chest containing Aegis Armlet.  Go down the
    ladder and back South again.  Head East and the ground will fall from under
    you.  When you land climb the ladder to the West.  Follow the path into the
    duct at the end.  When you come out get the chests on your left and right for
    a Starlight Phone and Elixir.  Climb down the ladder and jump into the duct on
    your right.  When you come out you'll find a large ladder, at the top there's
    a chest with Max Ray inside.  Return down the ladder, down the tube and back
    up the ladder to where you came out of the first duct.  Head up the large set
    of stairs.  Save your game and enter the door.
    
    When you come out and try to head North a scene will occur...

    |  This is actually an optional fight if you've done the sidequest in        |
    |  Wutai, but it's a good idea to fight it anyway.  Each Turk drains a       |
    |  different kind of elemental attack so things like Magic Breath are        |
    |  out of the question.  If you've gone to the sunken Gelnika start the      |
    |  battle with Hades, if not then use Bio3 on all of them.  When they're     |
    |  poisoned they'll take almost 1000 damage on a regular basis.  Enemy       |
    |  Skills like Aqualung work fine, as do summon spells like Alexander,       |
    |  Neo Bahamut and Bahamut ZERO.  Be sure you have Ribbons equipped to       |
    |  protect against confuse.  Rude's physical attack is insanely powerful     |
    |  so you'll need Barrier or Big Guard just to stay alive.  When the         |
    |  poison is in effect you can relax your offensive a bit and just focus     |
    |  on keeping everyone alive.  If possible be sure to steal everything       |
    |  have including the Minerva Band, Ziedrich and Touph Ring.                 |
    |                                                                            |
    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    Now there's something optional here.  If you go South you'll find a number of
    source items and at the very end the W-Item Materia.  It's a long way down and
    the Materia can actually be found in Bone Village later, but if you insist
    read the tabbed paragraph.
    
         Head South, South, South, South, South, South and get the chest
         containing Power Source.  South, South and get the Guard Source.  South,
         South and get the Mind Source and Magic Source.  Go South, pick up the W-
         Item Materia and save your game.  Now head back to where you fought the
         Turks.
    
    Head North.  Go right at the fork, follow the path and left at the next fork.
    Climb the ladder and approach the Shinra Building.  Ignore Cait Sith's warning
    (although this part IS optional.)  Enter the building and climb the stairs to
    the second floor and enter the shop to the Northeast.  Now you can open these
    chests to receive Master Fist and Pile Bunker.  Climb the stairs and enter the
    elevator.
    
    On this floor there's a door a bit South that leads West to a set of stairs.
    You can descend the stairs about 30-40 flights approximately you'll find the
    Behemoth Horn.  Then climb 30-40 back up again.  It's not worth it.
    
    Anyway enter the elevator on the East side.  Your first destination should be
    63F.  Just North of the elevators is a bag with a Glow Lance in one of the
    rooms.  Now take the stairs to 64F.  In the exercise room if you put 250 Gil
    into the machine at the beginning of the game you'll receive Mind Source and
    Speed Source for banging on it.  The lockers to the North contain the
    following: Phoenix Down, Ether and HP Shout, Cait Sith's best weapon.  (The
    former two won't be here if you collected them earlier, but the HP Shout can
    only be collected at this point.)  Ride the elevator to the first floor and
    leave the building.  Climb down the ladder back to the tunnels.
    
    Return to the first fork above where you fought the Turks and go left.  Climb
    the steel structure and go North to trigger a scene...

    |  What you have here is a very weak and slow boss with a ton of HP.  The    |
    |  best way to start this battle is by Magic Hammer-ing all his MP away.     |
    |  Use all targeting spells like summons and Magic Breath until the          |
    |  armor is destroyed, then you can pretty much revert to normal attacks.    |
    |  Big Guard always helps of course.  When he kneels down it means he's      |
    |  about to use a powerful cannon attack, but if you used Magic Hammer       |
    |  kneel down, get all prepared and then it'll say "Proud Clod's skill       |
    |  power is used up."  Meanwhile in that time you can get in quite a few     |
    |  attacks.  Keep on top of healing and you'll be fine.                      |
    |                                                                            |
    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    After the fight head North.  Grab the two chests containing Mystile and
    Elixir, then save your game at the save point and change your party around to
    include Barret.  You don't have to set him up or anything just have him in
    your party.  Climb the stairs to the next area.  Up the second set of stairs
    here you'll see a chest, open it to receive Barret's Missing Score (you'll
    only see this chest if Barret is in your party.)  Now you can go back and
    rearrange your party if you like.  When you're ready head as high up the
    stairs as you can for a scene...

    |  Hojo has a total of three forms.  You're definitely going to need         |
    |  as many Ribbons as possible on people here.  His first form will          |
    |  summon two normal enemies and use some basic attacks.  Magic Breath       |
    |  is a great way to wipe him out, or Ultima.  Try and avoid summons so      |
    |  you can save them for his next form.                                      |
    |                                                                            |
    |  Hojo's second form is the most dangerous, he can use a variety of status  |
    |  effects like confuse.  Fortunately if you've got those Ribbons equipped   |
    |  you'll be fine.  Cast Big Guard then use your most powerful enemy skills  |
    |  and summons like Bahamut ZERO.  His limbs can be revived so don't bother  |
    |  aiming for them, just focus your attacks and limits on the body.          |
    |                                                                            |
    |  His third and final form uses more status ailments than any other, even   |
    |  his normal attacks will put you to sleep and poison you.  You only have   |
    |  to fight a single target though so charge your limit attacks and          |
    |  use physicals to bring him down.  If you got the Double Cut Materia from  |
    |  the Sunken Gelnika this is a great time to put it to work.                |
    |                                                                            |

    Following the battle a lengthy scene occurs.  Afterward it's time to switch to
    the final disc.

    At the beginning of the third disc you can enter the final dungeon if you
    wish, but there are still tons of things you can do outside.  Once you enter
    the final dungeon though you can leave whenever you wish so if you want to
    pick up some of the items and Materia down there you can do so.  Refer to the
    sidequests section for all the other stuff, at this point in the game
    everything is available.

    When you're ready to enter the final dungeon pilot the Highwind to the crater
    and descend the ladder.  Run down the hill and enter the Northern Cave.
    
    Note it is still possible to leave the cave whenever you wish, simply go
    through the large opening right in front of you when you enter and climb the
    wall beside the exit.
    
    Start off by opening the chest and getting the Save Crystal.  Follow the side
    of the cave around in circles on the way down to the bottom.  Be sure to get
    the Guard Source on the way down.  In the next section go left and climb up to
    find a chest containing a Power Source, also grab the HP Absorb Materia on
    your right.  Head down and get the Elixir.  Return to the top and take the
    path down East and get the Mind Source and Guard Source.  Before heading to
    the next section climb up the left side and get the chest containing Magic
    Source.  Proceed South.
    
    In this area drop down to your left, then take the huge drop on your right.
    Open the chest to receive Mind Source then walk over the the ledge on your
    right but don't drop, instead press circle to jump up to your left.  Run left
    then drop down and enter the cave, inside you'll find a chest containing
    Megalixir.  Leave the cave and drop down to the left.  Get the chest
    containing Hero Drink and enter the cave.  Grab the Guard Source, and follow
    the tunnel just above you to a Power Source.  Take the Northwest exit out of
    the cave and drop down to the right.  Enter the cave and follow the path
    around, when back out again, keep dropping down to reach the next section.
    
    You'll find all your party members here, climb down to reach them.  Now there
    are a number of branching paths, this walkthrough will cover all of them but
    require some backtracking.  These are only recommendations you don't need to
    do them if you choose not to.
    
    Send your main party left and everyone else to the right.  I recommend using
    your Save Crystal here but the choice remains yours.  At the next fork send
    everyone up and then proceed Northeast.  Start by heading East in this room
    and follow the path to a chest with Magic Source.  Return to where you came
    into this room and head North until Cloud takes a little trip underwater.
    Grab the Remedy to the Northwest and proceed to the next area.  Grab the chest
    at the Northwest containing Vaccine.  Next go up the hill to the North and
    pick up the green Shield Materia lying on the ground.  You can drop off the
    ledge just below the Shield Materia to walk underwater to reach a chest
    containing Imperial Guard.  Go back across, get the hero Drink at the
    Southeastern corner then exit the area to the Northeast.
    
    Note that the area you were just in is the best place to gather AP in the
    game, particularly by the bouncing dots named "Mover."
    
    In this area head left.  At the very edge where the greenery meets the rocks
    just above the central glowing thing you will see a purple Materia lying on
    the ground.  This is the W-Magic Materia, a yellow Materia that looks purple
    for whatever reason.  Proceed South into the glowing centre.  Examine it to
    find the Counter Materia.  Leave this area via the door to the West, you will
    be reunited with your party if you go down the stairs, but for now do not do
    so.  Open the chest and get the Luck Source then enter the door right above
    it.
    
    Jump across to the next platform and get the Turbo Ether from the chest.  Jump
    down to the left, now be careful.  When you jump to the next platform in front
    of the waterfall you may notice there is a floating object there.  You have to
    time your circle press as you land to pick it up, if you miss simply jump back
    and forth until you get it.  It is the Mega All Materia and the chest on the
    other side has a Speed Source.  Return to the other side and follow the path
    Northeast.  After it winds around you'll reach a chest containing X-Potion,
    head North to the next section.
    
    It's pretty linear here, on your way to the large platform you'll find a
    Vaccine, just after the Vaccine along the path where the background is a
    bright green examine the edge of the path against the bright green background
    and you'll eventually find a Magic Counter Materia, it's invisible but if you
    keep pressing circle along the path you'll eventually find it.  Continue right
    to a Turbo Ether.  Climb up the large platform.  Continue to the next area
    where you will find two chests containing X-Potion and Remedy.  To the East is
    a chest with an Elixir inside.  Finally North you'll end up back where you
    first split up.  Head North to the original area you met your party.
    
    If you set your save point here be sure to save after all that.  Now take the
    Northeast path.  At the bottom of it all you'll find a chest and item which
    are Mystile and Elixir.  Continue down and get the chest at the bottom
    containing Speed Source then go South into the small crack to find a hidden
    chest with a Tetra Elemental, and to the Northeast you'll find a Megalixir.
    From there it's just a matter of following the path down to the bottom.  When
    you attempt to descend the final steps a scene occurs.
    
    Tifa should give you a Mystile.  Speak to Barret and he'll give you a Guard
    Source, Red XIII a Mind Source and Cait Sith an Elixir.  Finally Yuffie will
    give you a Megalixir.  Attempt to head South and choose "Let's get going..."
    Form you party and proceed.
    
    Jump from platform to platform, fighting enemies along the way.  When you
    reach the bottom...

    |  The difficulty of this battle and all battles following will really vary  |
    |  in difficulty depending on how much you accomplished before entering      |
    |  the final dungeon.  I highly recommend completing at least the Chocobo    |
    |  breeding sidequest before coming here.  But if not it's still quite       |
    |  possible.  There are two ways of killing Jenova either normally through   |
    |  damage or hurting her a lot and waiting for her countdown to end where    |
    |  she will cast Ultima and promptly die leaving you with no XP/AP.  To      |
    |  damage her stick with Enemy Skills and Bahamut ZERO.  If you got a blue   |
    |  Chocobo and have Quadra Magic pair it with Bahamut ZERO to likely bring   |
    |  her HP to less than 50%.  Normal attacks with the character's final       |
    |  weapons work great especially if you got Double Cut from the Sunken       |
    |  Gelnika.  Cast White Wind if her Bio attacks poison you and basically     |
    |  do whatever it takes to drain the HP.                                     |
    |                                                                            |
    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    After the fight you'll find yourself in another area.  Watch the scene and
    then you will have the chance to set up either one, two or three parties.
    When they are ready select the option to continue.

    |  This is a very odd boss indeed.  If you're fighting with more than one    |
    |  party you will have the option of switch each time a specific part dies.  |
    |  I see no really need to switch between members unless you leveled         |
    |  everyone equally including limit breaks, or if your main party is         |
    |  really struggling.  Focus on using attacks that will damage all body      |
    |  parts at once like Enemy Skills (not magic breath, more like Aqualung)    |
    |  or summon spells.  Once all the other body parts are dispatched aim       |
    |  everything you have at the core before it is able to revive the rest of   |
    |  the body parts.  Once the core is dead nothing else can be revived, and   |
    |  winning the battle is simply a matter of picking things off one at a      |
    |  time.                                                                     |

    |  This is a difficult fight to predict because there are a number of        |
    |  variables to be honest not of all which I understand.  The give you the   |
    |  best general idea, the higher level your characters are the more life he  |
    |  will have, he also gets an HP boost if you used Knights of the Round in   |
    |  the previous boss fights in the crater.  Regardless of how you proceed    |
    |  here are some important recommendations.  First of all though it is       |
    |  always implied, Big Guard is a must.  He will cast Wall on himself        |
    |  your job that much harder.  As for his attacks, be sure to cast White     |
    |  Wind immediately after Pale Horse if the character hit isn't wearing a    |
    |  Ribbon.  If he rises into the air only characters whose attacks are long  |
    |  ranged can hurt him.  It also means he's planning to use his ultimate     |
    |  attack, 'Super Nova' which deals heavy damage to everyone and takes about |
    |  as long to cast as it does to play through the game up to this point.     |
    |  When trying to damage him focus on strong attacks with your weapons       |
    |  and limits especially after his Wall wears off.  If he happens to try     |
    |  and destroy your barriers be sure to cast Big Guard immediately after.    |
    |  Quadra Magic, W-Magic, W-Summon are all great here.  Don't forget to      |
    |  heal with Megalixirs all you want since they'll have no use after this    |
    |  fight.  Also if you did do the Chocobo sidequest, a single cast of        |
    |  Knights of the Round may be all that is needed, though not required.      |
    |  Everything that has worked effectively up to this point should work       |
    |  effectively here.                                                         |
    |                                                                            |

                                 / Station Square /
    
    Not a lot to mention here, you can select any one of the seven other
    destinations as well as look at an interactive map on the wall.
    
    
                                  / Event Square /
    
    Apart from the date this place doesn't really serve a purpose.
    
    
                                  / Speed Square /
    
    The speed square is a fun little rail shooter game you can play for 10 GP.
    The basic idea is that you aim your crosshairs and shoot targets down as you
    move, you can either taping circle or hold it.  Holding it will cause you're
    power to decrease and recharge when circle is not being pressed.  There are
    some basic tips to help you get the highest score possible following:
    
         Right when you come out of the first enclosure there is a rock you can
          shoot on the right side of the screen.
    
         When you come across a boat you can shoot the red spinning paddle thing
          on the back, hold circle for maximum points.
    
         After all the balloons are done one more will pop up with two large ears,
          keep shooting and you can destroy it.
    
         You'll come across a large UFO that is somewhat hard to destroy but worth
          1000 points.  My personal method is not to tap circle as fast as I can
          but moderately fast, so that it still remains at full power.  The most
          important thing to remember is to keep aiming and shooting it while in
          the background, it continues to take damage.
    
         When the ride ends and you are pulling towards the finish, keep shooting
          the spotlights on the left side of the track.  One of them is worth 200
          points.
    
    The prizes you win are different depending on what disc you are on.  You will
    get nothing but items with no purpose for scores between 3000 and 5000.
    However for scores above 5000 on disc 2 you receive Aeris' Umbrella and on
    disc 3 you will get Cid's Flayer.
    
    
                                  / Round Square /
    
    Apart from the date this place doesn't really serve a purpose.
    
    
                                  / Ghost Square /
    
    Contains a shop and an inn, basically the hotel of the Gold Saucer.  You can
    find a Turtle's Paradise flier on the wall next to the shop.
    
    
                                 / Battle Square /
    
    For 10 GP you can participate in the battle arena.  The more fights you win
    the more battle points you will accumulate.  Battle points can be redeemed at
    the machines at the top of the stairs for prizes.
    
    Every time you win a fight you will have to deal with a little slot machine
    reel that will determine what happens to you before the next battle.  The
    majority are bad however some are good, many can be negated by wearing a
    Ribbon however if your accessories are selected to be disabled, it won't help
    much.  Each session at the arena consists of 8 battles.
    
    Once you have accumulated enough points to purchase Cloud's final limit break
    Omnislash and the W-Summon Materia, and have also defeated Ultimate Weapon and
    got Cloud's final weapon you can access a special battle.  With these three
    items in your inventory speak with the receptionist and she'll tell you about
    the special battle.  It consists of 8 battles like the others however it is
    much harder and ends with a fight against the Proud Clod.  The first time you
    win this battle you will be rewarded with the Final Attack Materia.
    Everything after that is useless (except the very rare Ribbon, which can be
    acquired easier my morphing Master Tonberry.)
    
    
                                 / Wonder Square /
    
    The Wonder Square is home to quite a few useless little minigames, but they
    can serve as fun distractions and do yield at least some rewards.
    
    The woman here will exchange GP for prizes:
    
            Potion.......... 1 GP
            Ether........... 20 GP
            X-Potion........ 80 GP
            Turbo Ether..... 100 GP
            Gold Ticket..... 300 GP
            Carob Nut....... 500 GP
            Gil Plus........ 1000 GP
            EXP Plus........ 2000 GP
    
    At the upper left is the prize machine.  For 100 Gil you can try your luck and
    get an awful prize.  It is possible to win up to 100 GP however highly
    unlikely.
    
    At the lower left is an arm wrestling station, challenge your ability to
    button mash for a measly 2 GP.
    
    At the lower right is a basketball game which can be somewhat fun.  Hold
    circle to charge and let go to release the ball.  There are four outcomes:
    
         Too low           - Fail
         Direct hit        - Success
         Off the backboard - Success
         Too high          - Fail
    
    Every ten points you have the chance to double your GP or lose it all.  My
    strategy for this was one I learned years ago from the unofficial strategy
    guide by Versus Books.  Hold circle until the exact second the basketball
    touches the top of Cloud's hair then release, should be a sure hit every time
    with practice.  This game still doesn't compare to the Chocobo races in terms
    of GP gain though.
    
    In the back room there is a motorcycle game identical to the battle you fought
    during the escape from Midgar.  If you get over 10,000 points you get 10 GP,
    and also a Speed Source the first time you win.
    
    The Snowboard game can be played once you've played it during the main story.
    A score of over 90 on the first course gets you 20 GP and a Safety Bit, 97 or
    more on the second gives 100 GP and an All Materia, 96 or more on the third
    course yields 300 GP and a Crystal Bangle.  See if you can get perfect on
    every course.
    
    The submarine minigame can be played after you've played it during the main
    story.  There are five levels each which yield some crappy prize for winning,
    either Ink, T/S Bomb, Dragon Fang, Dragon Scales or Cauldron.
    
    The Mog House minigame is somewhat interesting.  You have to guess how many
    Kupo Nuts will make him fly, but not so much that he will be too heavy.  There
    is no exact number, I say start with four and see how it goes from there.
    When you complete it you get a reward of 30 GP, however you cannot get that
    reward again.
    
    The VR battle in the centre is a rock paper scissors based fighting game,
    press the appropriate button to perform an attack.  Since you're playing
    against the computer which is the same computer controlling your opponent, and
    processing your attack, the AI difficulty simply increases on this scale.
    
         Cannot lose -> Fair -> Unfair -> Cheating -> Retarded
    
    You will never get to stage R.  This is the worst game ever.
    
    
                                 / Chocobo Square /
    
    Once you've purchased stables at the Chocobo Farm and caught your own Chocobos
    you can race them here.  Before brining them here be sure to feed them 20 or
    30 of the best greens you can buy which will increase all their stats
    permanently and allow you to control them much better in the race.
    
    Every Chocobo starts at class C.  Rank increases occur every three races, when
    they do the opponents get harder and the prizes get better.  When you will you
    will have the option of taking the prize or GP, at higher ranks you can gather
    a few hundred GP in a matter of a couple races quite easily.  There are four
    ranks, C, B, A and S.  Each rank has a higher chance of a special Chocobo
    rider appearing in the race.  This rider rides a black Chocobo that will be
    better than you no matter how good you are, you'll have to rely on your
    ability to race rather than your stats to win.
    
    Each of the different kinds of Chocobos will react differently in certain
    parts.  The green Chocobo can run through the space area without slowing down,
    the blue can run through the water area in the long course.  The black and
    gold can run through both.
    
    You should always race manually if possible by pressing select at the
    beginning of the race.  Press square a number of times to bring up your
    Chocobo's speed, and use X if you need to slow down.  Holding circle will use
    a fast dash but your stamina will drain quickly.
    
    There is a trick you can exploit if you wish that makes racing much easier, at
    any time holding R1 and R2 will charge your stamina bar.
    
    The main items you're looking to win here that are unique to the Chocobo races
    are the Cat's Bell, Chocobracelet, Sneak Attack, Precious Watch and Sprint
    Shoes.

    Enter Wutai and a scene will occur involving Yuffie (or on the way if you're
    coming with the Tiny Bronco.)  Fight the two Shinra soldiers and head inside
    the town.  Navigate your way through and exit the town via the North path.  In
    the second section of Wutai there is a large house on the right, go inside.
    When you go in, head into the first room you come to.  On the West wall
    examine the tapestry to reveal a hidden hallway.  Down at the end you'll find
    a chest containing Magic Shuriken.  Return to the main hallway and proceed
    Southeast.
    
    In the next part of the house go into the first room and examine the Southeast
    wall to find a hidden hallway.  There's a chest at the end containing Hairpin.
    Enter the room adjacent to this one and keep speaking with the man until he
    stands up.  Make sure Yuffie appears and then leave the house.
    
    Return to the Southern section of Wutai and enter the building West of the
    save point across the bridge.  Speak to Rude to trigger a scene.  Now leave
    the building and enter the house just North of the save point.  Open the chest
    to receive MP Absorb Materia (and have it promptly taken too.)  Head to the
    building right beside the town entrance.  Examine the fold out screen and
    Yuffie will escape again.  Return to the bar where the Turks were and examine
    the pot just outside the door.  Press circle three times to knock and she'll
    jump out of the pot.  Watch the scene.
    
    Follow Yuffie into her basement.  Before entering the main room examine the
    scroll on the wall beside the door.  It's the final Turtle's Paradise notice ,
    No. 6.  Talk to Yuffie and switch either level.  Press the lever again to
    raise the box up.  Make your way to the North section of Wutai.
    
    Go up the stairs of the structure on your left, there is a large bell.
    Examine it and a door will appear.  Enter the door and watch the scene.  Grab
    the Swift Bolt and Elixir from the chests.  Go up the stairs and fight your
    way through.  When you exit the house speak with the Turks at the path to the
    Southern section.  Go down and save your game.  Since you have no Materia,
    purchasing the Fire Veil and Swift Bolt items from the shop beside the save
    point will probably help a lot in the next section.  When you're ready, head
    Northwest from the save point.
    
    Follow the Turks up the mountain.  When you come to the first fork go North,
    and North again at the second fork.  You'll see Rude outside the cave, go
    inside and get the chest containing Dragoon Lance.  If you've completed the
    underwater reactor examine the fire and you Leviathan Scales will remove it.
    If not, remember to come back later.  Beyond the fire is a chest containing
    Oritsuru and a 'Steal as Well' Materia laying on the ground at the end of the
    path.  Leave the cave.
    
    Head South from the cave entrance and watch the scene...

    |  This fight can be extremely hard because his Aero3 is insanely            |
    |  powerful and you really have no way to protect against it.  Make sure     |
    |  you have lots of X-Potions in your inventory.  Start using those attack   |
    |  items you bought at the store, and any Materia is going to be helpful     |
    |  pretty much.  I highly HIGHLY recommend you get everyone to a full        |
    |  limit break before the fight, it's really the only way I can imagine to   |
    |  deal the amount of damage required.  If you came here with the airship    |
    |  you're likely going to find it much easier than if you came with the      |
    |  Tiny Bronco.                                                              |
    |                                                                            |
    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    After the fight watch the scene.  Your choice makes no difference.  Once
    everything is over you'll have your Materia back.  Head back into Wutai and go
    North from the entrance into the small shed-like house.  Climb the stairs and
    get the chest containing HP Absorb.  All the shops are now available.
    
    One last thing to do is head to the world map just outside of Wutai and get
    into a battle.  The little grass enemies called Razor Weed can use Magic
    Hammer when manipulated, one of the most useful Enemy Skills you can get.

    |  This fight's difficulty really depends on what point of the game you      |
    |  challenge this at.  If early you may find this boss to be extremely       |
    |  difficult mostly due to his normal attack. Use Enemy Skills like Aqualung |
    |  until he casts reflect then stick with normal attacks.  Make sure you're  |
    |  positioned in the back row.  Having a couple of HP Plus Materia here      |
    |  can't hurt.  Elemental and Choco/Mog on your weapon will double your      |
    |  normal attack.                                                            |

    |  If you wish to minimize the amount of damage you take in this battle      |
    |  equip the Peace Ring to prevent the Fury status.  Stick with Aqualung     |

    |  powerful hits to kill him with the least number of attacks, since Rage    |
    |  Bomber is what he'll use every time he gets hit.                          |

    |  Godo has some powerful attacks but just about all of them can be          |
    |  protected against.  First of all make sure you wear a Bolt Armlet into    |
    |  the battle which will make Trine useless.  Secondly use any Elemental     |
    |  Materia you have with Gravity to keep that from hurting you, finally you  |
    |  can kill two birds with one stone by casting Reflect on Godo which will   |
    |  keep him from healing himself and in fact heal you in the process.        |
    |  Since he has no particular weakness, any way of dishing out damage that   |
    |  has worked on the previous bosses should work just as well in this fight. |
    |                                                                            |

    For defeating all the bosses you get the Leviathan Materia as you reward.
    That's about it for things to do in Wutai.

    |  Before the battle make sure the equip everyone with all the Ribbons you   |
    |  have to prevent the confuse status.  When the battle starts use your      |
    |  most powerful summons like Bahamut ZERO then relax into your best Enemy   |
    |  Skills like Magic Breath, Big Guard and Magic Hammer.  A combination of   |
    |  these three should give you control over the battle quickly.  Don't       |
    |  forget they carry two ultra rare pieces of equipment, the Ziedrich and    |
    |  Touph Ring, be sure to steal it.  You don't have to defeat them both at   |
    |  once so focus all your single-person limits on Reno if you don't have     |

    After the fight save your game for a third time and enter the room North of
    the battle.  On the upper walkway open the chests to find Megalixir and Spirit
    Lance.  On the lower floor get the two chests containing Outsider and
    Highwind, Cid's level 4 limit break.  In the chopper's wreckage you'll see a
    shiny red item, examine it to find the Hades Materia.  Now you can leave the
    sunken Gelnika.
    
    A couple quick notes, the room where you fought Rude and Reno is a great place
    to level up.  Also if you attach the Added Effect Materia to the Hades Materia
    you just picked up and put it in a weapon slot, you'll get an incredible
    amount on status effects on your normal attack.

            Apocalypse......_____
            Elixir.........._____
    
    
    The Ancient Forest is located on a mountain just South of Cosmo Canyon.  The
    only way to access it are either a green/black/gold Chocobo, or defeating
    Ultimate Weapon.  Defeating Ultimate Weapon causes an explosion creating a
    path to the Ancient Forest however if you are looking to access it early in
    the game a Chocobo is your only option.
    
    Note that at any point if you become stuck you can press square to return to
    the forest entrance, but follow the guide and you should be able to avoid that
    last resort.  Also note that in the treetop area the select button helps to
    easily mark the exits.
    
    Begin by going over the land bridge to find a large man eating flower.  In the
    middle is an item bag however if you get to close to the middle the flower
    will snap at you dealing damage and spitting you out.  It is possible to get
    the item without going near the middle just move slowly while tapping the
    circle button until you pick up the item bag containing Supershot ST.  Return
    to the entrance where there are a number of jumping bugs, pick up one of the
    small flies by pressing circle.  Go under the bridge until you reach a little
    area where the ground is raised and there are three hanging pods.  Press
    circle to drop the fly near the raised ground platform but not on it.  Return
    and bring the other two flies as close as you can.  Now take one fly and
    release it on top of the raised ground, when released it will hop into the
    first pod.  Grab the next as fast as you can and jump onto the first pod, and
    release the fly into the second.  Finally gab the third and send it into the
    final pod, if you were quick enough you should be able to jump across to the
    next section.  Ignore the frogs and jump across to the right, grab the Spring
    Gun Clip from the item bag above you before proceeding East.
    
    There will be a fly right in front of you here pick it up and head right.
    When you are prompted to jump, do so.  Drop the fly in the pod and leap across
    to the other side.  Pick up the frog and climb the area of raised ground on
    your right, just above you.  Face left and put the frog in the pod.  When you
    jump on it, it may seem like you have nowhere to go however simply wait until
    the frog jumps out in order to be launched up to the platform on your left.
    Grab the nest and jump down.  Approach the flower on your left and release the
    nest.  The flower will eat it and remain shut giving you access to the yellow
    Slash-All Materia at its base.  Grab the frog and stand on the raised ground
    releasing it into the left pod this time.  Proceed right.
    
    Ignore the first fly and go right until you find another fly.  Pick it up and
    return to the beginning.  Deposit the fly into the pod and quickly grab the
    other one.  Jump onto the pod, release the fly and spring up to a higher
    level.  Exit the treetops to the Southwest.  Grab the item bag containing
    Minerva Band and return to the section to the East, then back up to the
    treetops again.
    
    Head West then up the tree and East across the top branch.  Head South at the
    other end and climb up the broken branch that forms a V shape at the bottom.
    Across the springing things is an item bag containing the Typoon Materia.  Go
    back across the springers and down to the tip of the V where the two branches
    meet the main trunk.  If you go right from the split you'll find a path
    leading down.  At the bottom grab a fly and put it into the pod to the
    Northeast.  Jump up to the platform with the nest and bring it down below.
    Release the nest into the flower to close it permanently.  Go past it and use
    the remaining fly to close the pod and jump across to the left.
    
    Grab the fly here and walk into the hollowed out section of the tree and
    release it.  Once it becomes a frog put it in the pod you used to come over
    here and return to the right.  Wait for it to jump out then grab it and
    finally deposit it into the pod to the Northeast.  Allowed it to catapult you
    onto the right ledge.  Continue East to the next screen.
    
    In the cave open the chest to receive Apocalypse, this sword gives three times
    the normal Materia growth rate.  Head North, pick up the Elixir, and exit the
    Ancient Forest.

    beside a waterfall.  Dock on the side and walk into the waterfall.  Make sure
    you have Vincent in your party.  When you enter, watch the scene.
    
    Note that you can also reach this area via any mountain climbing Chocobo.
    
    Once the scene is over leave the area and continue with the game, main story
    or leveling or anything.  After a certain amount of time has passed (couple
    hours is a good estimate, though I'm not exactly sure what the requirements
    are, return to the waterfall with Vincent and examine the glowing pedestal to
    receive Death Penalty and Chaos, his final weapon and level 4 limit break.

    directly below it and wedge yourself as close as you can between the tip and
    the plane itself.  If you dig here you'll find the Key to Sector 5 in the

    |  Ultimate Weapon can be fought early or late in the game which will make   |
    |  his difficulty somewhat variable.  There's no real need to defeat him     |
    |  too early unless you really want Cloud's final weapon, the Ancient Forest |
    |  can still be accessed via Chocobo.  As for the fight itself in            |
    |  preparation I recommend either Mystiles as armour and Tetra Elementals    |
    |  to negate some of his attacks.  You obviously won't have Cloud's final    |
    |  weapon now but using two characters who have their final weapons will     |
    |  really help, equip the Double Cut and Long Range Materia on one of them.  |
    |  Two Enemy Skills that really help in this battle are Magic Hammer and     |
    |  Big Guard.  Attach Quadra Magic to some powerful green magic spells and   |
    |  summons like Bahamut ZERO.  Your strongest magic at this point in the     |
    |  game will be effective regardless of element.                             |
    |                                                                            |
    |  No matter how strong you are the first time he will run away              |
    |  automatically.  Be quick and start following him in the Highwind after    |
    |  the battle, if you lose him you'll have to search the entire world.       |
    |  He'll fly and stop at a random location where you can fight him again,    |
    |  his HP total is less each time by how much damage you did in the last     |
    |  battle.  Once he's almost dead he will fly to Cosmo Canyon where you can  |
    |  finally strike the final blow.                                            |
    |                                                                            |

    When Ultimate Weapon dies you receive Cloud's most powerful weapon and he
    explodes, making a crater that molds the ground into a slope giving you access
    to the Ancient Forest.
    
    Winning this fight also triggers Ruby Weapon's appearance in the desert
    surrounding the Gold Saucer.

    Now you are ready to do battle against the first of the two super bosses.  The
    is however something you must do before the fight.  Begin by taking a trip all
    the way back to the Underwater Reactor at Junon.  Location the underwater
    glass tunnel where you can see the aquatic life in the background.  Here you
    will fight a large enemy called Ghost Ship, which is a large ship with a
    skeleton on the front who hits you with a paddle.  The reason you are in this
    fight is because you want to use the Morph command to morph this enemy into an
    item called the Guide Book.  Now head to Kalm.  Enter the house on the East
    side and go upstairs.  Speak to the man and he will offer you the Underwater
    Materia in exchange for the Guidebook.  With this Materia equipped, Emerald
    Weapon's timer disappears.
    
    Get in your sub and dive down.  Emerald Weapon can't be missed and often likes
    to sneak up when you least expect it.  He's a huge, what can only be described
    as, 'death machine' swimming around underwater.  Make contact with him to
    trigger the fight.

    |  There are countless ways of defeating this boss, this strategy will be    |
    |  focused on outlining all the different combinations that work well so     |
    |  that you can easily come up with a setup that works for you and leads to  |
    |  victory.  First of all you're going to need to deal a lot of damage, so   |
    |  if you have neither Omnislash nor Knights of the Round, go and get one or |
    |  both of them now.  Secondly the Mime Materia you get for having a green   |
    |  Chocobo is almost a necessity.  If you're using Knights of the Round      |
    |  set up a couple of mastered Magic Pluses on everyone, and a Mime Materia  |
    |  on everyone.  Give the person with Knights of the Round a W-Summon        |
    |  and start to cast it.  Use Mime with everyone else and six Knights of the |
    |  Round will follow.  Continue this strategy healing appropriately.  You    |
    |  can also implement the same basic idea with Omnislash, however the fight  |
    |  will have to be done with only Cloud.  Equip Ultima Weapon and get your   |
    |  limit meter to max.  To do this you will need a number of Mime Materia    |
    |  and Counter Materia linked so that you will counter with Omnislash as     |
    |  many times as you have them linked.  While this is dangerous it is also   |
    |  extremely fast.  Besides these as your primary sources of damage there    |
    |  are numerous other things to consider.  First of all you'll probably need |
    |  at least one HP Plus Materia on everyone.  Secondly you're going to want  |
    |  to have won the special battle at the Gold Saucer at least once so that   |
    |  you have the Final Attack Materia.  Equip a mastered Final Attack Materia |
    |  to a mastered Phoenix summon.  Every time you die you will cast Phoenix   |
    |  which revives your entire party.  This can happen up to five times.  It   |
    |  is important to note the following, Emerald Weapon's Aire Tam Storm can   |
    |  actually be significantly weakened.  It deals damage depending on how     |
    |  many Materia your character has equipped, 1111 per Materia to be exact    |
    |  meaning having more than eight Materia on one character means instant     |
    |  game over without Final Attack.  This means stick with as few Materia as  |
    |  you need.  Whatever you're using for damage, no more than two Magic Plus  |
    |  Materia, no more than one HP Plus and maybe a Speed Plus, but use Sprint  |
    |  Shoes if you have them.  For equipment I recommend all the ultimate       |
    |  weapons, along with Mystile for armour and Sprint Shoes for accessories,  |
    |  though if you plan on casting Big Guard those can be forfeited for        |
    |  something else, perhaps a Touph Ring.  One more strategy I wish to        |
    |  recommend is the following.  Setup your characters as you wish to have    |
    |  them setup for the fight.  Now on one of your characters have them so     |
    |  they only have two Materia equipped and be sure their max HP is 99.  (Use |
    |  Mime and Magic/HP Plus perhaps.)  Late in the battle Emerald weapon will  |
    |  use Aire Tam Storm which will deal 2222 damage to this person, assuming   |
    |  they were at full 9999 HP it will leave them with 7777 HP.  When a        |
    |  character has 7777 HP in this game it puts them into all lucky 7's mode   |
    |  which is kind of like a berserk state except no one else can attack but   |
    |  this person, who attacks over and over for 7777 damage.  This continues   |
    |  for quite a long time and will result in a massive chuck of Emerald's     |
    |  HP being depleted.  With this knowledge you're ready to take on Emerald.  |
    |                                                                            |
    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    After the fight you receive the Earth Harp.  Take it to the Kalm Traveler who
    you got the Underwater Materia from and exchange it for Master Magic, Master
    Command and Master Summon, which contain every spell, command and summon in a
    single Materia slot.

    |  There's little continuity in the strategies for defeating Emerald and     |
    |  Ruby mainly because they act so differently.  First of all Ruby Weapon    |
    |  must be killed with only one party member.  It IS possible to fight him   |
    |  with three but at some point he is going to cast Whirlsand which sends    |
    |  them directly out of the fight similar to the Midgar Zolom.  Enter the    |
    |  battle with someone by themself and the other two members dead.  Since    |
    |  it doesn't matter how much Materia you have equipped here, set yourself   |
    |  up as follows.  You'll need W-Summon, Knights of the Round, Mime,         |
    |  Counter, Final Attack, Revive, Magic Plus, HP Plus, Hades and possibly    |
    |  more.  I recommend (if you're using Cloud) a setup of Ultima Weapon,      |
    |  Mystile and Ribbon.  Now you're going to want to Equip the Hades and      |
    |  Knights of the Round Materia.  Attach an HP absorb to the Knights of      |
    |  the Round and a Quadra Magic to Hades.  Attach a Final attack and Revive  |
    |  Materia (not Phoenix, leave your party dead.)  You'll need a few mastered |
    |  Magic Pluses and enough HP Pluses to make sure your max HP is 9999.       |
    |  Equip Mime and attach it to Counter.  Any slots you have left can be      |
    |  dedicated to Magic Plus or Speed Plus.  When you enter the fight          |
    |  W-Summon Hades and Knights of the Round.  The reason you're doing this is |
    |  because Ruby Weapon will counter with Ultima every time it is attacked    |
    |  with Knights of the Round, however it won't if it's paralyzed and that's  |
    |  exactly what Hades does.  In the event he casts it, the Mystile is there  |
    |  to hopefully help you dodge it.  If you don't the HP Absorb is there to   |
    |  heal you.  If you're too slow the Revive is there to save you.  In other  |
    |  words you've got three backup plans to save you from Ultima, with a       |
    |  setup like this victory is within arms reach.                             |
    |                                                                            |

    After the fight you receive the Desert Rose.  Take it to the Kalm Traveler who
    you got the Underwater Materia from and exchange it for a Gold Chocobo, at
    this point in the game it's disappointing to say the least, but the real
    reward is in itself, Ruby's defeat.  Good job.

    Chocobo breeding is a very useful little sidequest that will eventually net
    you tons of great items.  You're ultimate goal is to achieve a Gold Chocobo
    and the following guide will help you get one.
    
    First of all you'll need to equip the Chocobo Lure Materia.  Now head to the
    Chocobo Farm.  Speak to the man in the house and agree to buy all six stables,
    which will cost you a total of 60,000 Gil so make sure you have it.
    
    Head to the Gold Saucer.  There are tracks on the East side of the desert.
    Catch a Chocobo here that appears in a battle with only the little green
    winged enemies on the ground called Spencer.  The Chocobo you catch here is a
    good Chocobo.
    
    Now head to the tracks outside Mideel.  Catch a Chocobo that comes into battle
    with two Spiral enemies, this is a great Chocobo.
    
    You need to purchase about 50 Sylkis Greens which can be bought from the
    Chocobo Sage.  Now return to the Chocobo Farm and talk to Chocobo Billy.  Ask
    about moving Chocobos and you'll be able to select one to move.  First select
    your great Chocobo and give it a name ("GrMale" works so you can identify
    later.)  Now leave the farm and save.  Go back and move your other Chocobo, if
    it is another Male then reset and try again until you get a Female.
    
    Once you've got the two Chocobos ask Billy about feeding, choose Sylkis Greens
    and feed each one about 25.  Once you've done this head to the Gold Saucer's
    Chocobo Races.  Speak to Ester and race both your Chocobos to S rank or as
    close as you can get to that.  It takes three races to increase rank.
    
    Now fly to Bone Village a equip the steal Materia.  Get into fights in the
    field (not forest or beach) until you come across a dinosaur-like enemy called
    Vlakorados.  Steal a Carob Nut from this enemy, do this three times.  Your
    other option for getting these is 500 GP at the Wonder Square in the Gold
    Saucer.
                                          
    Return to the Chocobo Farm and talk to Chocobo Billy about mating.  Select
    your two Chocobos and give them a Carob Nut.  In the morning you'll have a new
    Chocobo, it should be either a green or blue Chocobo, if not then reset the
    game and try again.  Now feed this Chocobo about 25 Sylkis Greens and race it
    to S rank.
    
    Return to the Chocobo Farm.  Now you need to mate the same two Chocobos you
    mated the first time, with a Carob Nut.  You need to get the opposite colour
    and gender than you first Chocobo.  For example if you got a male green
    Chocobo the first time, you'll need a female blue Chocobo this time.  If you
    don't get what you want reset and try again.  If Chocobo Billy says you can't
    mate them because they just mated, it means you have to fight 10 battles
    before doing it again.  The Midgar Zolem is a quick easy ten battles.
    
    Now race your new Chocobo to S rank and return.  Get a third Carob Nut and now
    mate your green and blue Chocobos together using a Carob Nut.  If all goes
    well you'll get a black Chocobo.  Head to the Gold Saucer and race it to S
    rank.
    
    Now fly to the set of Chocobo tracks nearby to Icicle Inn on the North
    continent.  Capture a Chocobo that appears in a battle solely with the
    'Jumping' rabbit enemies.  This is a wonderful Chocobo.  You shouldn't have to
    race it to S rank, but it couldn't hurt.
    
    Head to the Northeast most tiny island on your map.  There is a small forest
    here where you will only fight little goblin enemies.  Steal a Zeio Nut from
    them.  Return to the farm and save your game.  Make sure your wonderful
    Chocobo is the opposite gender of your black one.  Now mate the two.
    
    In the morning you should have a brand new gold Chocobo.
    
    Now you can get the rewards, talk to Chocobo Billy and ask to ride your
    Chocobo.  Leave the farm and enter the Highwind, your Chocobo will come with
    you.
    
    First proceed to Mideel.  At the very Northern tip of the crescent shaped
    islands is a cave you need your Chocobo to reach.  The Chocobos that can
    access this cave are blue, black and gold.  Inside examine the glowing light
    to receive the Quadra Magic Materia.
    
    Second head to Wutai.  Around the centre of the island if you head East there
    is another cave off a tiny peninsula.  The Chocobos that can access this cave
    are green, black and gold.  Inside examine the glowing light to receive the
    Mime Materia.
    
    Third head to the entrance to Mt. Corel, West of Costa del Sol.  Just a little
    North, across the river is another cave.  This cave can be accessed by either
    a black or gold Chocobo.  Inside examine the glowing light to receive the HP
    <-> MP Materia.
    
    Finally return to the little island where the goblins and Zeio nuts were.  You
    need a gold Chocobo to reach this cave.  Head North across the water, with a
    very slight tilt to the East.  The island is near the top of your map but does
    no appear on your map.  If you have trouble finding it you should be able to
    locate it easily with the Highwind.  It is a circular island with large
    mountains protecting it.  On the island is a cave.  Inside examine the glowing
    light to receive Knights of the Round.
    
    That's about it for Chocobo breeding.  You can take your gold Chocobo to the
    Chocobo races and start winning the top prizes easily.

    | IV - xvii                  Tricks and Glitches                     (Fw03D) |
    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    There are a number of tricks and glitches in Final Fantasy VII, here are the
    most important ones you can use to your advantage:
    
    - Most importantly is the W-Item glitch.  If you have W-Item equipped go into
       a battle.  Select any item from your inventory you wish to duplicate (as
       long as it can be used in battle) then use it on someone.  Since you have
       W-Item you will be able to use another item.  Press circle to choose the
       item but them press X to cancel it before using it on someone.  This will
       put the item back in your inventory but also put an extra copy of the first
       item you picked in your inventory.  Keep pressing circle, X, circle, X etc
       to get as many of the first item as you want.
    
    - When racing Chocobos, hold R1 and R2 at the same time to regain stamina.
    
    - When you arrive at the Gold Saucer, just Northeast of the save point there
       will randomly be a man standing there who sells you GP at 1 / 100 Gil
    
    - If you ever find yourself with 7777 HP remaining you will go into a berserk
       state and attack continuously for 7777 damage for a lengthy amount of time
    
    Feel free to submit your own via email, any tips or tricks you think people
    should know.

    | V - i                        Limit Breaks                          (Fw03E) |
    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    Limit breaks are a relatively simple concept in Final Fantasy VII.  Basically
    through the game whenever you receive damage, the little meter beside your
    name marked 'limit' will fill up.  When it reaches the top your normal attack
    is replaced with the flashing word 'limit.'  At this point you can unleash a
    special super powerful attack on the enemy.  What that attack is depends on
    which character you're using and you're current limit break level.  When this
    is used the meter resets to minimum and the process starts over.  Only enemy
    attacks can fill this gauge, you cannot fill it by attacking your own
    teammates.
    
    Note:  The hyper and sadness effects on your characters will lower and raise
    the rate of gauge increase respectively.
    
    Everyone starts with a single level 1 limit break.  Generally this is just a
    single enemy attack but they can vary from single enemy attacks, to all enemy
    attacks, to multi-hit to healing to transformations.  In order to acquire new
    limits breaks you must meet either of two conditions, those are defeating 80
    enemies with a particular character, or using a particular limit break a
    certain number of times.  Which of these you need to fulfill is listed below.
    
    For everyone's final limit break with the exception of Cait Sith, an item is
    required to learn the level 4 limit.  You cannot learn this limit break until
    you have learned every other one manually for that character.  each character
    has 7 limit breaks with the exceptions of Cait Sith and Vincent.
    
    The following is a list of all character's limit breaks and what is required
    to unlock the next one.  (Note these are not exact values, each one is give or
    take a bit from an approximate 90% confidence interval.  Note that Cloud's
    Meteorain may actually take almost 200 kills, all other values are good
    approximates.)

    Through the game you will more than likely find at least one yellow 'Enemy
    Skill' Materia.  When this Materia is equipped your character can learn
    certain specific skills when the enemy uses them.  In order to learn it, your
    character must be hit by the spell and win the battle.  If you run away all
    Enemy Skills you learned during the battle area lost.
    
    Note that certain enemies must be manipulated to learn their skills because
    they won't cast them on you by their own accord.  Cait Sith comes equipped
    with a Manipulate Materia automatically.
    
    The following is a list  of each Enemy Skill and where they can be found.
    Enemies that must be manipulated are denoted with (Manipulate.)

    | V - iv                      Materia Listing                        (Fw041) |
    o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    Materia in Final Fantasy VII is the basis for all magic.  It can be used
    equally on any party member and linked with certain other special Materia.
    The possibilities for combos are endless.
    
    Every time you equip a Materia you also acquire the ability to cast a spell
    that is associated with it (in the case of green and red Materia.)  For yellow
    Materia you get a new command in your battle menu.  Light blue Materia can be
    linked to aid and increase the effects of other Materia, while purple Materia
    is always in effect and need not ever be used.
    
    Materia also level up via 'AP' gained after battles.  If you equip the Fire
    Materia you will gain the ability to equip the Fire spell.  Once you have had
    that Materia equipped long enough it will level up, then you can cast the
    Fire2 spell whenever you wish, or switch the Materia to another character and
    have them cast Fire2.
    
    Materia is equipped into slots given to you by different weapons and armours.
    You can equip a maximum of 8 Materia into any given weapon or armour, but most
    do not have that many slots.  Some slots are also linked together, this means
    you can pair a green, red or sometimes yellow Materia with them in order to
    get a new effect.  If you were to say pair the Fire Materia with an all, the
    next time you cast it in battle it will hit all the enemies instead of just
    one.  This also applies to healing you as well.  Outside of battle if you have
    an All Materia attached to a restore. you can press R1 when using it in the
    main menu to target your entire party.
    
    Also weapons and armour have the ability to change how Materia grow, there are
    four possibilities: Nothing, Normal, Double, Triple.  Normal is most common
    but some weapons have none so that any Materia equipped on them can be used,
    but not leveled up.  There are two things in the game that have triple Materia
    growth, Cloud's Apocalypse and Cid's Scimitar.  Be sure to pick them up.
    
    Also note that there are many Materia 'combos' in this game and rules that 
    govern them.  For example you may think you are a genious for pairing the 
    Added Effect Materia with Poison on your weapon.  Well what if you were to 
    pair it with Hades?  Did you know that if you have W-Magic and Quarda Magic it 
    multiplies and you can cast a spell eight times?  Lets say for example you 
    have a level 1 Lightning Materia.  Attach an All Materia to it and when you 
    cast Bolt the spell will hit every enemy.  Pretty simple.  Now get another 
    level 1 Lightning Materia and attach HP Absorb to it on the same character.  
    Cast Bolt and you will gain HP AND the spell will target every enemy.  Get 
    three more Lightning Materia and attack Steal as Well, Added Cut and MP Turbo.  
    Now simply casting Bolt will hit every enemy for Turbo-damage while healing 
    your HP and simultaneously stealing and attacking the enemy.  All in one cast.  
    Now you can see the power that can come from these Materia pairings, try a 
    bunch out for yourself.
    
    There is so much to do and to experiment with using Materia, far more than
    could ever be fully cataloged in any guide, so you are encouraged to
    experiment with all new Materia you get, they can be switch around whenever
    you wish so you never run the risk of making a permanent mistake.
    
    What follows is a comprehensive list of every Materia in the game.
