Greetings! Here is some linguistic help for American fans of Gally/Alita. This 
is not a FAQ, or even a guide. It is meant as a translation of the manual 
booklet accompanying the game. Though my Japanese is extremely rudimentary, the 
translation is as faithful as possible to the original manual. But some of this 
IS based on "experience" rather than translation. And I admit I could have 
screwed the translation at times. If anyone could spot any errors, I would 
appreciate hearing from you. (If you do note an error, please let me know WHERE 
in this manual it is. This is fairly big.) But in the mean time...


Here are some bracketing conventions I use in this FAQ:
<...>              means press a button on the controller
[...]              the translation of some label or choice written in 
                     Japanese on the screen. 
  __         Guide (chapter) heading. Note: "" should appear as a 
                     "bullet" or dot. Some translators screw this up.

GUNNM MANUAL TRANSLATION
------------------------------------------------------------------------



---------------------------------------------------------------- (cover)

The big Kanji character in the upper left  of the cover is called "GUN"  
(actually JU) which means "gun". The big Kanji on the right is "MU" meaning 
"dream". GUN + MU =Gunnm (the last "u" is dropped) or simply "Gun Dreams." I 
believe it means "dreams a gun has", rather than someone dreaming of guns.

Between the two in red is "KASEI NO KIOKU" which means "Martian Memories." The 
tiny red characters across the word "GUNNM" is just "gunmu" again spelled an 
alternate way.

Underneath in white letters - "explanation booklet"

In the triangle -
"Please keep in mind this game has violence and grotesque expressions."

   WORLD OF GUNNM   

ZERAM AND SCRAPIRONTOWN
Separated above the earth by 3000 meters, constantly floating in the sky is an 
utopian city (Zeram) and below, another city built on its expelled trash 
(Scrapirontown). Within these two, the world of Gunnm takes place. Why, in the 
middle of a junkyard, would anyone want to live in that world? Underneath Zeram 
existence itself becomes formidable. This story begins in Scrapirontown.



---------------------------------------------------------------- (pg3)

IDO AND ENCOUNTER WITH DESTINY
The winds blow the smell of oil and iron around an artificial creation, a 
city(Scrapirontown) where people dwell between scrap and machine. In this town 
human beings and cyborgs live mixed-in together. Within there lives a "mostly 
cyborg, tuning and maintenance" cyberne doctor named Ido. 

One day, he came out of the town and in a mountain of scrap found a cyborg girl 
asleep for hundreds of years and brought her back to life. That cyborg girl who 
lost her memory is the heroine of this story.

memory card block. You can store a maximum of 3 game saves per memory card. If 
your character dies during the game you can load in a previously saved game.

LOAD SCREEN
When you enter the [LOAD] screen you should see the following choices:

       [START AT BEGINNING]

---------------------------------------------------------------- (pg8)

   HOW TO ADVANCE IN THE GAME   

EXPLANATIONS OF THE SCREENS

WORLD MAP SCREEN
This is the satellite view of the area. Places you can go to are represented by 
red dots. As you play more places (and red dots) appear on the map. You can go 
to a new place by moving the crosshairs with the direction pad onto the place 
you want to go to. Press <circle>.

LOCAL MAP SCREEN
This is your normal view. It is an overhead view of Gally and her surroundings. 
In this view you roam around her world, interact with characters, and when 
necessary fight. There are several readouts on the screen. They are:

1) Energy Gauge - shows her current amount of health. It is generally in the 
upper left of the screen. When Gally is attacked she loses energy and the bar 
inside the gauge shrinks. When she is healthy the bar is green. When she down to 
about 60% the bar turns yellow and the box around it takes on a yellow tinge. 
When she reaches a critical level the bar turns red and the box takes on a red 
tinge. When it reaches zero (all black) she dies. There is a numerical readout 
to the right of the gauge which shows the exact amount of energy and her maximum 
energy.

2) Plasma Gauge - shows how much plasma she has available. This blue gauge is 
just below the health gauge. During the game at times Gally obtains a cyborg 
body capable of "plasma energy" attacks. Performing a plasma attack uses up 
plasma. The numerical gauge to the right shows her current amount next to her 
maximum. When Gally is using a non-plasma type body this gauge is not available.

3) Battle Mode indicator - When Gally is in "battle mode" in the upper right of 
the screen the words "BATTLE MODE" appears. Gally can only fight when she is in 
battle mode. However she cannot change weapon, missile or leave the area while 
in battle mode. Note: she can still change her part(accessory) in battle mode, 
when she gets them. Also a green triangle appears on the ground in front of 
Gally indicating the direction she's attacking.

4) Enemy Gauge - When an enemy is nearby and active, a gauge appears at the 
bottom of the screen. It is similar to Gally's health gauge. If she is fighting 
multiple enemies, multiple gauges appear along the screen's bottom. When she has 
targeted an enemy, its corresponding gauge is highlighted in green and a red 
circle appears around that enemy.

5) Missile - In the center of the screen topmost edge appears a picture of the 
optional missile weapon she has equipped. Below it is a readout showing how many 
she is carrying.



---------------------------------------------------------------- (pg9)

FLOW OF THE GAME - 
The game begins at Ido's home/clinic. From there you travel around town  talking 
to people, fighting bad guys, and eventually defeating the boss to get to the 
next level. 

       Flowchart-
       1) Ido's Complete Equipment Management and Maintenance - This 
              is Ido's (and Gally's) home and cyborg clinic. This where 
              you begin. Here you can rest and rejuvenate yourself when 
              needed. You can also save your game here. 
       2) Conversation  Information Gathering - Talk with various
              people around town. Just move Gally near them and press 
              <circle>.
       3) Factory 33 - This is wear you can register as a "hunter-
              warrior," check the wanted list, cash in kills for money,
              buy items and also save game. You can also enhance Gally's
              cyborg body here for a fee.
       4) Battle - Enter battle mode and kill, kill, kill.
       5) Boss Battle - defeat your rival. 
       6) Next Development - Go to the next part of the story...



---------------------------------------------------------------- (pg10)

   STATUS SCREEN   

ABOUT THE STATUS SCREEN - 

You access this screen when you hit pause during the game. It is subdivided into 
several boxed in sections called windows. Going along the left side, at the top 
there is a "character graphic" of Gally, below which is the "MENU SELECT" 
window. (I'll explain how to use it in a second.) 

Along the right side, on the top is Gally's money (in "chips"). Below that, in 
the center is the big "EQUIPMENT" window. At the bottom of the screen is her 
"STATUS PARAMETERS" window.

The EQUIPMENT window lists different things depending on what choice you make in 
the menu select window. When you first enter the status screen it translates to 
the following:

       BODY:              [the cyborg body her head is attached to]
       WEAPON:            [the weapon she is using]
       MISSILE:           [the secondary weapon she has equipped]
       PART:              [the accessory she has equipped]

Here is the translation of what's in the menu select window:

       [ITEM]       
       [WEAPON]       
       [MISSILE]
       [PART]
       [OPTION]        
       [LOAD]       
       [RETURN]       

You can use the cursor to change selection in the menu select window. The 
selections available are explained below in more detail:

 ITEMS - 
when you select ITEM, this the equipment window lists Gally's inventory. She can 
carry a maximum of 120 items. (However missile items only take up only one slot 
each. e.g. 45 molotov cocktails only takes one slot.) She can carry an 
assortment of health and plasma recharge packs, weapons, missiles, and parts. 
You can use or equip items here. Use the direction pad and <circle> to select an 
item. Once you select an item, the top of the equipment window changes to list 
the following options:

       [USE]     [DISCARD]     [get INFO] 


       USE 
       You can "use" items at any time even in battle. You can 
       recharge your health, or plasma. Parts can also be changed at any 
       time. But you can only change weapons or missiles when you are 
       not in battle mode. After you select this, you will be asked to 
       confirm. 
       [YES] is on the left, [NO] is on the right.

       DISCARD 
       Be careful. This throws away an item permanently! 
       After you select this, you will be asked to confirm. 
       [YES] is on the left, [NO] is on the right.

       INFO 
       Displays what each item does. In Japanese of course. Or press <X> 
       to get info.



---------------------------------------------------------------- (pg11)

 WEAPONS -
When selected the equipment menu lists just her inventory of weapons. Otherwise 
it works similar to when you select ITEMS. This option is only available outside 
of battle mode.

 MISSILES -
When selected the equipment menu lists just her inventory of missiles. Otherwise 
it works similar to when you select ITEMS. Missiles are Gally's secondary 
weapon. It includes projectiles, guns, and throwable items. This option is only 
available outside of battle mode. See the translation of page 18 for more info.

 PARTS -
When selected the equipment menu lists just her inventory of accessories. 
Otherwise it works similar to when you select ITEMS. Parts are accessories that 
increase Gally's abilities. They can raise her maximum energy level, or increase 
her attack damage. This option IS available in battle mode also.

 OPTION -
Almost the same as the option screen at the beginning of the game. You can still 
select message speed and change sound. However the options for sound are 
switched [MONO] is now on the left, [STEREO] on the right. Also the next line I 
couldn't translate. It says something like "maku of battle time 
appearance:off/on"

 LOAD -
Sends you to the LOAD screen. (see pg5)

 RETURN -
Returns you to the game in progress...


STATUS PARAMETERS
This window at the bottom of the status screen displays Gally's vital 
statistics. It lists the following:

       HEALTH: [current level / max]
       PLASMA: [current level / max]
       ATTACK: [attack power]          DEFENSE: [defense strength]

The window is interactive. As you select an item, weapon or part, the window 
will show the change (in blue numbers) if you use or equip the item.



---------------------------------------------------------------- (pg12)

   DECKMEN   

USING DECKMEN 
A typical deckman looks like a metal cylinder with fat cheeks and lips, and 
bolts for eyes. Comes with one robot hand. When outdoors they come equipped with 
a small base with feet. These perform the interface for the Factory and its 
services. They can let you save, or sell you items, enhance your body or cash in 
your bounties.

FACTORY-33 
The authority center of Scrapirontown. Inside there are 6 cylinders, each with a 
deckman inside. #1 handles game saves, #2 handles hunting results, #3 gives you 
fighting results, #4 is the items shop, #5 is the weapons shop, and #6 is the 
cyberne. Cylinders 1, 2, and 3 are on the left side. Cylinders 4, 5, and 6 are 
on the right. Just walk up to a cylinder and press <circle>. The first cylinder 
you should go to is cylinder-3. There you can register as a "hunter-warrior." 
Please see pages 13-15.
 
BEING A HUNTER-WARRIOR 
Hunter-warriors are essentially bounty hunters. Check reward listing at FACTORY-
33. Then go hunt down the criminals and terminate them. Return to Factory-33 to 
receive cash (in chips) for each kill. There you can also spend your money on 
weapons, items, or body enhancements.

USING THE REWARD LIST 
Once you register as a hunter-warrior, you can go to Factory-33 and talk to the 
"netman," the robot in the center of FACTORY-33. It will show you the reward 
list, a listing of all the criminals wanted by FACTORY-33. It displays their 
name, height, weight, DNA code, and picture. It also lists the reward for each 
criminal.



---------------------------------------------------------------- (pg13)

These following pages describe the functions of each FACTORY-33 cylinder.

1) GAME SAVE
When you come here you can save your game.  First you will be presented with a 
window listing the following:

       [MEMORY CARD1]
       [MEMORY CARD2]
       [CANCEL]

After choosing a memory card, you will be presented with the save screen, which 
works similar to the load screen. Choose a data slot to save your game. You will 
see a message asking if you want to save.

       [YES]               [NO]

After the game saves, press cancel or <X> repeatedly until you return to the 
deckman.

2) HUNTING RESULTS
You come here to receive cash (in chips) for each enemy you kill. Each enemy 
type will be listed as well as how many. The total cash will be added to your 
account listed in the upper right corner. Press <circle> to exit. 

3) FIGHTING RESULTS
This deckman will give you a running tally of all the enemies you killed in the 
game. In order to access this menu, when you first talk to the deckman you have 
to choose the second reply (the one with the question mark). You can use the 
direction pad to scroll up and down the list. Press <circle> when done.

When Gally first comes to FACTORY-33 she must register as a hunter-warrior. Come 
to Cylinder-3 to register. The deckman will give her a brain bar code and then 
she can go hunting!



---------------------------------------------------------------- (pg14)

4) ITEM SHOP
At the item shop you can buy non-weapon items. Basically it sells repair kits 
which heal Gally, Plasma Supplies which replenish her Plasma levels, or (latter 
in the game) parts which she can equip to increase her ability in battle.

5) WEAPONS SHOP
The weapon shop offers weapons to increase the damage she can deliver in battle. 
There are two types of weapons: blades and missiles. Although she can fight very 
well bare handed, she increases her attack power if she carries some sort of 
blade or knife. The second type, missiles, includes any throwable item, missile 
or ammo (guns). Missiles items are one-use only items (except guns which use up 
ammo). However you can buy as many as you have funds for.

When using the shop, there are three selections to choose from:

       [BUY]       [SELL]       [EXIT]


       BUY 
       Select "buy" and the store lists what it has to sell and the cost
       of each item. Use the direction pad to scroll down the list.
       Press <circle> to select an item to buy. If the item is a
       missile-type item, then a message will ask you how many do you
       wish to buy.Move the cursor to add or subtract from the quantity. 

       They deckman will then list the price and ask if you wish to 
       purchase the item. 

                     [YES]              [NO]

       Select yes and the item will be placed in your inventory. If it
       is equipable, another message will ask if you want to equip it.
       Select [YES] or [NO] again. Press <X> to exit the buy screen.

       SELL 
       Select "sell" and a list of YOUR items appear. Operating the 
       "Selling" menu is similar to the "buying" menu. Items will sell
       for half the its original cost. Also certain items are not
       sellable. 
       Select [YES] or [NO] to confirm sale.

       EXIT 
       Select "exit" and press <circle> to leave the menu. You can also 
       press <X>.



---------------------------------------------------------------- (pg15)

6) CYBERNE
The Cyberne can replenish Gally's health and plasma or give her a tune-up. A 
tune-up increases one of her parameters, either Maximum Health Energy, Attack 
Power, or Defense Strength. You can see her current stats at the bottom of the 
screen. 

HEALTH: [current health]              MAXIMUM HEALTH: [max. health]
PLASMA: [current plasma level]
ATTACK: [attack power]                DEFENSE: [defense strength]

When you first enter the Cyberne, move the direction pad then press <circle> to 
select one of 3 options:

       [BODY RECOVERY]              [TUNE-UP]              [EXIT]


       BODY RECOVERY 
       This allows Gally to replenish her health or plasma. There are
       two choices:

              HEALTH ENERGY 
              Selecting this will restore Gally's health to her maximum. 
              PLASMA LEVEL 
              Selecting this will replenish her plasma energy to 
              maximum.

       TUNE-UP 
       This will permanently increase the abilities of her 
       current cyborg body. You can have multiple upgrades to each 
       attribute, but the cost of each successive upgrade increases 
       also. 

       There are three choices:

              HEALTH TUNE-UP 
              This increases her maximum amount of health energy. It
              also replenishes her health to the new maximum and also
              replenishes her plasma to full too.

              ATTACK TUNE-UP 
              Increases the damage she can inflict with her attacks.

              DEFENSE TUNE-UP 
              Decreases the damage done by each attack the enemies make.

   BATTLE MODE   

BASIC TACTICS

       ABOUT BATTLE MODE
       Whether in the local map or in a building, you can change into
       battle mode at any time. But when you switch from normal mode
       into battle mode the controls for movement are different.  Here
       are the explanations for basic movement to combinations.

       allows baton attacks. (Butterfly Damascus Blade)

       square                     double thrust
       X                          kick

       R1 + X                     Splash Kick
       triangle                   plasma double cut


FIGHTING STANCE DIRECTION
When Gally is attacked from behind, rather than turning around and then 
attacking, she can instead attack backwards. Press the direction key toward the 
enemy and press <X>. Gally will do a kick attack backwards, then turn around to 
face the opponent.



---------------------------------------------------------------- (pg18)

MISSILE
Use the <L1 button> to launch a missile attack. Hold <L1> to achieve a "lock-
on". Maintain hold on <L>. Use the direction key to switch the lockon to a 
different enemy if needed. Press <circle, square or X> to throw a missile. This 
uses up the missile item. You will need more than one if you plan to attack 
again.

PLASMA ATTACK
Some of Gally's cyborg bodies are capable of using plasma attacks. These are 
powerful attacks that consume plasma energy each time they are used. You must 
have plasma to do a plasma attack. Use the <triangle button> to make a plasma 
attack.

MAGNETIC BARRIER
This releases a burst of energy around Gally. All enemies next to her will be 
heavily damaged. Press <triangle+ circle> to do a magnetic barrier. This moves 
consumes Plasma.



---------------------------------------------------------------- (pg19)

COMBINATION
By timing well and continually pressing the <X> and <square> buttons you can put 
out a combination. You can also add the <R1> and the direction key to make a 
colorful combination.

       EXAMPLE
       left punch <square> +
       right punch < square > +
       middle kick <X> +
       backspin diagonal kick <forward+X>

ABOUT OPPORTUNITY
If Gally blocks immediately before the enemy makes an attack, she can initiate a 
powerful counter attack. Press <circle> just before the enemy makes an attack. 
The block will not only stop the attack, it will stun the enemy. As he staggers, 
quickly press an attack button to initiate her most powerful attack.

       punch button       Wiruherun Haoen 
                            (devastating brunt fist)
       kick button        Doraiforan Sense 
                            (continual whirlpool attack scythe)
       plasma button      Center Bolt


DEPENDING ON SHIFT BUTTON TO CHANGE MOVEMENT
When attacking and also when moving, using the action button, <R1> will enhance 
the action. It can add power to an attack or give you a quick movement. While 
holding <R1> press one of the following buttons:

       movement button    step movement
       punch button       Hertza Haeon
       kick button        Splash Kick
       plasma button      Plasma Sting

   MOTORBALL   

ABOUT MOTORBALL
It's described as a cross between baseball and motorsports (actually its cyborg 
professional wrestling with roller derby), it is the entertainment for the 
inhabitants of Scrapirontown. Players fight their way up through stages to 
become champion.

HOW TO ENTER
Inside the motorball circuit building there is a gray cylinder with a deckman 
inside. Go up to him and press <circle>. From there you can enter a game. Or 
save your data.

STAGE SELECT
When you begin each Motorball match, you select any stage you have access to. At 
first you go to stage one. As you clear each stage, you will be given access to 
the next higher stage. You can also repeat any stage.



---------------------------------------------------------------- (pg21)

EXPLANATION OF THE SCREEN
>From the start of the match you have 180 seconds to eliminate the other players. 
If you can victory is yours.

       1) In the upper left corner is a energy gauge measuring Gally's 
       health. When it reaches 0 you lose the match.
       2) In the center top is the timer. When it reaches 0 you lose the 
       match.
       3) Upper right is the speed indicator.
       4) Enemy Motorballer. Red ring indicates Gally's current target.
       5) Gally, the player's character.
       6) Lower right is the attack level gauge.

USING THE CONTROLS
The direction pad moves you around. <X> and <R2> is jump. <square> is attack, 
<R1> changes target selection. Maneuver Gally near the enemy. Hold the attack 
button down to build power. Release to attack. Holding too long damages Gally. 
Defeat all the enemies before the timer runs out to win.

MOTORBALL TUNE-UP
After the match, you will be returned to your trailer. There you can ask 
Umba(fat guy in babysling) for a tune up. His services are the same as the 
cyberne.

That's all the translation. If you want more info, the GunnmFAQ will have more 
information including a moves list, a complete item list (including items not in 
the manual), and how to fight the Bosses. I'm also working on a walkthrough that 
translates alot of the story. If you want either, contact me at

I would also appreciate any comments or corrections. THANKS
