    The entire guide is broken up into sections, sub-sections and so on.  There
    is one general idea or section  and then the section within it are more and
    more specific to that particular subject.
    
    You  can easily access any of the  parts in the guide; all  you have to do is
    highlight the search code for the section  copy it, open the Find function in
    your  browser  and enter it in.  Or you  could just highight,  press  CTRL+C,
    CTRL+F,  CTRL+V,  ENTER.  That should  immediately take  you to the  desired
    section.
    
    The main  walkthrough is divided into  separate parts to  help you  find your
    place  more easily.  Just refer to the listing  above and find the place that
    you are at in the game.  Then copy the  code next to it and paste it into the
    search function (CTRL+F).  After you  press ENTER or click on "Find Next" you
    will be taken to the appropriate section of the walkthrough.

    Version Final, 1/5/03
    ---------------------
    
    
    This is the final version of this FAQ.  Unless any major errors are pointed
    out in this doument then there will be no more updates.
    
    
    ---------------------
    Version 1.12, 9/26/03
    ---------------------
    
    
    Added some parts to the Legal Information and adjusted the section headers to 
    make the guide look better.
    
    
    ---------------------
    Version 1.11, 8/11/03
    ---------------------
    
    
    I fixed a few glaring errors in the guide other than that, not much.
    
    
    --------------------
    Version 1.10, 8/1/03
    --------------------
    
    
    I added in the maps for three of the missions and added in some stuff that I 
    missed.
    
    
    ---------------------
    Version 1.00, 7/31/03
    ---------------------
    
    
    Since this guide only covers a very small part of the game the guide is very 
    short, and in effect, this allowed me to complete the entire guide in one day.

                                02)  Introduction
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    
    The Document of Metal Gear Solid 2 is basically just a documentary of the 
    production and development of MGS2.  It includes trailers, production footage,
    game scripts and ideas, character and area models, and the whole shebang of 
    information about just about everything you would want to know about how MGS2 
    was made.  One additional feature that they threw in were some missions from
    the next MGS game MGS2: Substance.  This really wasn't much of anything 
    compared to the size of the actual game but it was enopugh to hold most people 
    over until the game came out, and as an added addition with a game save of the 
    missions on your memory card when you play Substance you have access to every 
    single mission in the game.  Also, this disc was included with the purchase of 
    Substance in Europe as a reward for waiting a few weeks after the US release
    of the game.  Just in case you don't know this guide covers the missions that
    came with the game.

                                     03)  Missions
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    
    This guide assumes that you have played MGS2 and if you haven't go do it now.
    So that means that you must no the controls, weapons, items, guard
    intelligence and the rest of that stuff.  The scores for the mmissions take
    into account how long you took to complete the mission, your remaining ammo,
    accuracy, and whether you have killed a guard or not.
    
    MAP SYMBOLS

    Character   : Snake

    Time        : 2:00
    High Scores : 1 - 13000
                  2 - 12000
                  3 - 11000
    
    Immediately at the beginning run up to the guard at position 1 and flip him.  Now
    wait for the guard in the middle to get to position 2 and then run past him to the 
    goal before he has time to turn around and spot you.  The guards on either side 
    of the level are of no relevance.

                                   3.2    Mission 2
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Character    : Snake
    Type         : Weapon - Handgun
    
    Time        : 1:30
    Targets     : 12
    High Scores : 1 - 18000
                  2 - 16000
                  3 - 14000
    
    Make note of these facts, if you shoot two or more targets within three seconds
    of the last one that was detroyed then there will be an additional point bonus 
    for each target that you can shoot within 3 seconds of the last, you can string
    togather all 12 targets if you move fast enough.  Point rewards will be higher 
    the closer to the center of the target you shoot.  The very center is 500 
    points, the next area is 50, and the very outermost part is 10.  Use FPV to 
    aim better.
    
    Immediately when the game starts hold the lock-on button and get the first 
    three targets at positions 1, 2, and 3.  Then look over and shoot the target at 
    4.  Now look towards position 5 and you should see the next three targets lined 
    up next to each other with a little vertical difference.  After those three are 
    eliminated there will be two more targets at positions 1 and two, once again
    these can be easily dispatched with the help of the lock on button.  Now, the 
    last three targets are  at positions 8, 9, and 10.  So look up and to the left 
    to shoot those targets.

    I am not drawing out all of those little platforms so here is a basic map that
    works just as well.

    When the leve starts run east and grab the M9.  Run up the stairs and stand at
    position 'X'.  Look down in FPV and slightly to the left.  You should see a 
    guard standing there at position 1.  Shoot him in the head, now staying in the 
    same place look up and to the right, there will be another guard there.  Shoot 
    him and look back down but this time further left, at position 3, a guard will 
    either be there or will be there very soon.  Shoot him and then go to the top 
    of the stairs on the platform you are standing on.  There should be a guard 
    near the top of the other set of stairs, by the goal.  Shoot him in the head, 
    don't worry, no matter where he is he can't turn around and see you if you 
    stand where I told you to.

    There is no map necessary for this so you will not get one.  In the beginning
    go through the flat area kicking or slashing the targets.  Once you get to the
    first raised area you will have three targets to take care of.  Kick the one in
    the middle into the one on the right and slash the target on the left.  Flip 
    over the gap to the next platform, kick the left target into the target on the 
    platform furthest to the left and slash the last target on here, flip over onto
    the stairs.  Now there will be three large groupings of targets all can be 
    quickly eliminated using punches and kicks.  Once they are all out the goal 
    will appear, go to it.

    I cannot draw a map for this, since it is so huge and detailed so I will use the
    power of my words alone to help you finish this.  What I prefer to do for this 
    level is drop down to the lower level using the hang-drop move and then 
    crouching, take a pentazemin and for the beginning of the mission I focus most 
    of my fire on the stairs facing Snake that lead from the middle to the bottom 
    level.  When guards begin to come through to the area around Meryl I just focus
    my scope on the area around her and when I see a guard enter my field of view I
    fire at him, it takes one shot to stop him so if you can get one shot into him 
    he will stop for about ten seconds giving you ample time to kill.  Try to do 
    this when there is a large group of guards coming at Meryl, fire a shot into 
    each of them and then while they have paused slowly pick them off.  On an 
    additional note, make sure you don't shoot Meryl she can die if you shoot her 
    too much.

    Well, this guide should have helped you with the missions that came with this 
    disc, although most of them were very easy the sniper mission gave a lot of 
    people a hard time so I hope it helped you there if no where else.  This is 
    right around the time when I shut up and finish the guide.
