         1.2 Fighting System Explanation
                   This game is pretty simple yet very tricky.(lost you yet?)
                   The BUTTONS C(Circle), S(Square), T(Triangle), X(X)
                   commands  the  four  character  that  you  have  chosen
                   to play with. pressing 4 buttons will make them use basic
                   attack. The buttons are aligned so that it matches the
                   position of characters on screen(right hand side). After
                   all your character have attacked or (moved) the game turns
                   to computer and let them move. So basically this is a TURN
                   based game. In the middle of fights you will notice that there
                   are bars on the bottom. When you are not attacking it displays
                   your character information. When you are attacking it displays 
                   the TARGETs HIT POINT. To the left of the HIT POINT bar there is
                   a HIT measure. It measures how many hit you did and gives it a
                   percentage of 1~100. Some thing good will happen when the circular
                   measure goes up to 100...read on. or jump to OUGI!. After the turn based
                   explanation there is something else called CT, Charge Time. This is
                   used when MAGE cast spell, or you perform big moves. When the CT bar
                   is empty you are ready to cast another spell. Some spell will knock
                   you out for 5~9 turns. Each turn you will recover one CT, sometimes
                   hitting on TARGETS they give you a red crystal ball. 1 RED CRYSTAL = 1 CT
                   It gets automatically absorved by the person who needs it. You do not 
                   control who gets the RED CRYSTAL.

         1.3 Lets have more Combos!
                   Well now that you have learned the basic lets move on to combo.
                   This is where you coordinate your attacks. Note that after you press
                   the command button some times it takes a few second for them to actually
                   hit the TARGET. Most of times your TARGET will GUARD. so you
                   will  need  to  trick  them  them.  By  pressing  more  than
                   button  at  once  your  character  attacks  at  the  same  time.
                   If you press all 4 buttons at ones then all for goes. But each 
                   character have a different hit time. Some are faster some are slower.
                   (Mages usually are the slowest). To do a combo, plan who is going
                   to go first. Arrange them in order of speed and attack position.
                   Use Lower attack to fake a Head Slash such stuff like that will
                   have a higher hit chance rate than going 1 by 1.

         1.4 Combo guard?? MY combos CRUSHED!!! What?!@?@?#?$%$%^
                   Now that you tried combo you still get your Combos CRUSH sometimes?
                   Not to worry this happens quite often. To Crush a Combo Guard is easy.
                   Make sure you know how EACH of your character attack, position,
                   speed, number of hits, and degree. Now knowing them you can start to plan.
                   Take your time FIGHT SCENEs are not time based. To Successfuly hit
                   your TARGET you will need to fake a move. Hitting your Target All at
                   once is not the best way. Usually The first Chara to hit is the faker.
                   The following Charas are the Guard Crush people. Make the TARGET THINK
                   you going to hit lower area but then the first chara to arrive is
                   a head slash or back slash. Get it yet? Here is a few examples.
    
                   The first button you pressed commands a Head Slash(high range attack)
                   Second person you pressed(faster than first one) is a lower range
                   hitter. Now Since second is faster he will get there first and attack
                   first! Enemy will block first move NOT second. So covering his head 
                   leavs his lower area clear. The combo is success and Guard is crushed.
                   Usually after a GUARD CRUSH the TARGET will FAINT for 2 turns. Use
                   the turns well.

         1.5 OUGI! Special High Damaged moves
                   now When you attack your enemy when the circular Bar reaches 100,
                   a screen will come out before your screens goes back to normal.
                   Its a dark screen with your 4 buttons on it. The Character that
                   has the CT bar empty will be able to Perform OUGI or Special move.
                   Usually this move are killer moves but not everytime is successful.
                   NOTE! this moves adds ALOT of CT! Think before you act! CT clear
                   when you go into battle view next time! If you don't want to do
                   OUGI then just wait or press your DIRECTION keys. How to do multiple
                   OUGI? By hitting another 100 in the previous OUGI you can do
                   another OUGI with another character! YES! It is posible to do
                   at least 3 OUGI in 1 attack scene(i haven't encountered 4)!!.
    
                   *BEWARNED WHEN YOU ARE FIGHTING STRONG BOSS 3 OUGI MIGHT NOT*
    
                   *KILL HIM! YOU WILL HAVE TOO MUCH CT TO MOVE!!! WATCH OUT!!!*
    
                   *USE IT ONLY WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WILL KILL HIM FOR SURE!!!!!!!*

         2.0 Wana be non barbarian? Try mages and stuff :) its neat~ Mages are really 
             powerful in this game. Use it well! Read on.

         2.1 Mages and Spells
                   ALAS! You are here! This is the most important Tactic in the game.
                   The KEY is to have STRONG mages. Basic attack can only hit 1 TARGET
                   at a time. Mages can hit ALL TARGET in 1 time...WOW! ain't that 
                   neat or what! Why spend time to kill your TARGET one by one
                   when you can kill them in 1 turn? Always Train GOOD mages to KILL
                   thoes NASTY TARGETS in ONE turn instead of going round and round.
                   Watch out! After your mage cast a spell it usually takes him 3~5 
                   Turns to recover his CT! So make sure your attack is fast and
                   blazingly harsh! This way enemy will not have a chance to attack.

         2.3 Items and Such
                   Sometimes using items is a MUST. When you are out of CT on your
                   mages, and your other Charas are not healing you? Well use an
                   Elixar or 2. It heals 50% of ur total hit point! Some times you
                   can also use speical Attack Items too. And also potions to revive
                   your teammate. You can not THROW WEAPONS!
