  1.    Introduction with Version History                     MSA

=========================================================================

HI,it's me again,you might or might not be familiar with me,but anyway,
I'm writing this guide to start off a new year. Anybody that played the demo
will be looking forward to this game as well as hardcore RE veterans. This
game has revamp a lot from the previous version,enemes are smart and there
are no longer zombies but instead, parasite controlled humans.

The story line is as follows: Several Years passed since the destruction
of Raccoon City, where this City is nuked and Umberella is finished,Leon
has become a government agent. Now he faces a ultimate challenge: A 
mysterious village..., Creatures that defy nature, Human...?. Leon now 
faces a new breed of evil in his quest to save the President's daughter.
It's up to you to decide whether he can survive this encounter......

The gameís is a survival horror one player game with lots of action 
and as well as plots to uncover in order to move on further to the game.
This game is created and copyright by Capcom and licensed by Nintendo for 
this game port to be possible for the Gamecube.

Meanwhile,sit back and hope you find the guide useful and good luck to
you in this game as I can assure you that this game is different from
the other previous installments. Good Luck. Over and out.

All characters and story plot are (c)opyright by Capcom ptd ltd.

errors for future versions. I'm slowly adding things on the guide, so

parts such as the weapon and enemy guide, I will try my best to do it in
my spare time and try to finish this guide as soon as possible. I have 
completed the game in Professional mode, so quite experience enough to
try to help readers if possible. Updated the secrets section. You may 
notice I'm not updating the walkthrough, it's because I'm trying to

need any help, just drop a mail, do accept my apologies if you are looking
for a guide for the game walkthrough. Diary list has been completed.

2.4   Merchant Guide
-----------------------

The merchant guy is a villager who yearns to make money at this point of 
time rather than be under Saddler. This shows that at times money talks.
Heh. These guys are basically traders that buy and sell items. But however,
they sell in much a higher price than they buy, so a simple maths 
calculation will make you understand that, you stand to lose and they
stand to gain when it comes to selling weapons. But they are weak guys
and die easily when shot and will never appear again in that spot. They
buy your treasures in terms of pesetas. One negative thing that they
do not sell ammo to you, but instead they buy ammo from you. They appear
a lot in the game for tune ups and weapons that become buyable in the game.
They also own target ranges for you to improve aiming where ranges are set
up for you to improve accuracy, they will reward you when you complete 
a game type set and this is where you are paid most while praticing!! They
are easy be indentified, they wear a block robe with a purple mask and a 
portable fieldpack or they are situated at areas with small stalls with
ammo. If you are still in doubt, whenever there's a purple flame lighted 
around, they will confirm be around unless they are shot by you which means
you shot yourself in the foot.

2.5  Tips for players
----------------------

Never shoot the Merchant
------------------------

Why? They are traders that sells weapons,tune up weapon for you. In other
words, they help you improve chances of beating the games further. They
are generally weak and you kill them easily. Once they are killed, they
not longer appear on that spot ever again.

Knife to save ammo
--------------------

Yes,this trick is still active,but only on one on one basis.Shoot their 
legs to drop them,quickly run towards them and slash about 5 times,the
villagers will die easily and you saved ammo and especially later in the
game where the villagers at night will reveal the Las Plagas which makes
them tougher to kill

Use the stun 'em and kick them trick
--------------------------------------

Early or later in the game,this is quite useful trick, by just shooting
at the head,they will be stun or shooting the legs,they will kneel down.
run towards them and the the A button will be active to kick them. This 
tip is also useful in bunches where you can kill a bunch of them down all
at once. Who knows, there's a chance Leon might kick the enemy's head off!

Shotgun decap trick 
--------------------

One of the useful ways to save pistol ammo but with the expense of one shotgun
ammo,but it must be with great accuracy.when a bunch of villagers come your
way,wait for them to come near,aim the shotgun up and fire,it would at least
decap the villagers near you and push the other villagers down. Although 
the accuracy of head decap has gone down a bit, but you will find yourself 
relying on this weapon because it can take a bunch down at once and powerful
enemies like the chainsaw manic guy.

Noises
--------------------

Yes,another easy alternative to spot whether there are any enemies around you
or not. They give the enemy away,so turn your sound volume up and you will 
hear the enemy shouting.

Save the game only when you are full of ammo and peak of health
----------------------------------------------------------------

Yes,save the game only when you are full of ammo and peak of health.This will
ensure survival and also in case you screw anything up,you can use this save to
your advantage and do not save when you are doing badly in the game.How to save
a game? Go to any typewriter to save your game or at the end of sub chapters,
statices will be reveal and also prompt your save as well. Notice the there's
no longer need of ink ribbon to save your data! Note that each saves costs
9 blocks in the memory card.

Destroy crates/barrels to get items
------------------------------------

Yes, destroy them to get items like ammo, grenade etc. Read this carefully. 
The items given will be Random and don't ask why this is the case and the
crates and barrels might or might not give you items at times so take
notice of it. Always use the knife to break them until later in the game
where they might place snakes inside to surprise you so shoot the crates
with handgun.

Wildlife hunting
-----------------

Yes,isn't it like MGS3? Shoot the crows for it to give items as well as
snakes to give you brown egg. But do not shoot the hen!! Observe it for
a while for it to have a chance to lay a golden egg!! Do note that for it
to lay an egg,it needs to be at a spot for a while and once you shoot it,
it will die!!So don't waste a cheap way to gain health. In water, you
can hunt fish to regain health, one way to save ammo is to use the 
harpoon to hunt.

The hen trick
---------------

Save the game and reload it,the hens will lay egg after youy reload the save!!
I have tested it a few times at the farm area,sometimes, it gives a golden
egg!!!!!!!

Learning simple commands
-------------------------

Yes,this basic commands needs to be mastered to succeed in the game well,
some examples are the 180 degree turn etc. Remember you can no longer reload
from the inventory. Dodge buttons are important so that you won't get hit.
Yeah, when ggrabbing,rotate the thumbstick quickly so that you won't get 
thrown, squeeze by El Gigante etc where fast enough, Leon will hit the enemy
right way,escaping from the enemy.

180 degree turn: down + b
Reload: Raise up gun + b
Dodge(when needed,commands is on screen): L + R or A + B
Dash(when needed,commands is on screen): A
Slash parasite(on EL Gigante,when needed,commands is on screen): A or B
Climb on EL Gigante(when needed,commands is on screen): A
Breaking free when enemy grab: Left thumb stick
Dodge grenade(when there is a barricade) : A

Mix herbs to save space:
-------------------------

Yes,mixing herbs saves space,combining them together only costs two blocks,
thus saving space. To have a knowledge of mixing herbs, read the health 
guide.

Weapon deflection
-------------------

Very important skill to master, as it will save your health to decreasing.
Just have a calm and cool mind to aim for it. Make use for the infared 
scope of any weapon to aim it and deflect it. It's rather important 
especially in chapter 2. It is better to use the handgun for it. Shotgun
works well, because it shoots a rather wider range even you are not
accurate. But you wouldn't want to waste a shotgun ammo on that way.

Flashbangs the Las Plagas when they reveal from their hosts
-------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah, they work; they parasites die instantly when the flashbangs are 
thrown. But my advise is not to waste flashbangs just like that unless
you are low on ammo or there are plenty of LAs Plagas hosts so you
might as well kill all at once.

Flashbangs enemies
-------------------

Yes, this is a good way when you ambush them, or they are plenty of them
cominng to greet you. This effect lasts a while so giving you ample time
to kill, recupurate, reload or escape. This trick also works well on
El Gigante while you reload or damage him.

Grenade them when they come in bunches
---------------------------------------

Yes,this is one good way to save ammo and kill most of them instantly.
The hand grenade works well when they come in bunches, then quickly throw
towards them, kill all the villagers at once. The incendiary grenade
works well when most of them come after one another, this is where this
grenade come in handy because the grenade effect last for a while,thus
catching many enemies when they advance.

Shotgun blasts on parasite
----------------------------

Las Plagas when they reveal from their hosts are deadly. They come in 
different forms, but early in the game,you will face the tenticle 
version. They reduce your life a lot so take a lot of shots to take
the parasites down. So use the shotgun, aim the mid level of the 
parasite,shoot, if done right,it kills the parasites instantly
rather than using plenty of ammo on the parasite.  Don't bother
shooting the hosts at this point, they don't damage much to them. Handgun
shots take a long time to defeat them because on shot will stun the parasite,
moving them backwards, not allowing you to take a second shot in and you
will need to reaim again.

Shoot traps before advancing
-----------------------------

Shoot the bear traps and clarmores that come in your way. This is one way to
prevent you from stepping on the traps when the going gets tough as this
game is rather fast pace when enemies come and go. Shoot them also ensures 
Ashley won't get hurt this way because you would want to protect her as
much you can so that you won't need to waste curing items on her.

Don't hesitate to buy attache case
-----------------------------------

Yes, don't be afraid to but them so thay more spaces are added in the 
inverntory. Why? Because later in the game, you will need to buy better 
weapons to survive in the game, as better weapons take up more space,
you should know the drill and get what i mean.

Fall back when needed and funnel the enemies
----------------------------------------------

Yes,this is important,when the going gets tough especially in the open,
it's best to fall back and regroup, reload and do whatever you want in
the short time you have so that you won't run out of ammo during the
firefight. Funneling the enemies is also a good trick to survive, 
first, fall back, go to a narrow corridor so that the enemies comes and
you can handle them well rather than fighting them in the open. As
narrow corridor works well as it reduces the number coming at you and you
are also able to shotgun them all at once!!!

Shoot explosive barrels,boulders to damage enemies
---------------------------------------------------

Yeah, they work well as they get rid of enemies fast and even damages the
bosses; thus weakening them.

Always have a curing item with you
-----------------------------------

Always keep one to ensure survival,or else you will be in trouble should you
got hurt badly during the game. Try to get healing items that are useful and
not take up a lot of space. Example is eggs,first aid spray. A bad example is 
the large black bass fish.

Making sure that the enemy is dead
----------------------------------

This is a very important factor to ensure survival,or else you will be wasting
ammo all the way.To see all the enemies are dead or not, just see their bodies
dissolve or hear them scream or said "Lord Salazer" to confirm that they die.

Stuck????
------------------------

If you are stuck,read maps and files for help,if you run out of ammo,don't
worry,there's always ways to progress and ceratin rooms you haven't visited,so
go there and you might find yourself with some supplies of ammo.Also any mid
level boxes that reach up to your waist,you can push them and also climb on
them,many of this simple tactics can be found in the the manual itself.
Remember,there's always a way out unless you tell me you are a total scrub.

Watch you character's health
----------------------------

If your character is seriously hurt,best is to view by the movement,during
caution condition,your character put their left arms at the right chest,if they
are dying,they stagger.So watch out and cure them asap.It's best to always bring
a health item with youin case you are hurt it can always save your skin,but do
not waste your herbs,cure only if your are around orange caution or dying and
best is to mix herbs,don't use them as single herbs. Use health right way when 
take them if you want. Your health bar can be seen in the screen so don't worry.


Tune up weapon
----------------

Yes,this way,you can save ammo and increase the weapons ability if you are 
not able to afford more poweful weapons.I advise you to tune up the firepower
first,then  the capacity if you have spare cash. The reload thing is secondary 
becuase you can  always fall back and reload, speaking of reload, reload your 
weapon when there's time becuase you would want all weapons to be fully loaded 
when engauge yourself in battle so that you won't get yourself in the stupid 
and vulnerable situation.

Unarming the enemies
---------------------

Aim the hand where the weapon is held,you can disarm them,this way they can only
grab you and throw you so you have a distance advantage. But some enemies that
carry shackles can take out one more, or those carrying explosives can also
take out. Speaking of explosives, killing the person carrying explosives, the
enemies around will die as the explosives fall in their area,thus saving ammo
for yourself so be smart in these situtations.

Aiming the legs of the enemies during the night and further in the game
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why? So that this reduces the chances that the parasites will reveal from
the host and you will save a lot of ammo on that trust me. When you shoot
their legs, sometimes they are stun or they fall down, gives a chances to
kick them or knife them and don't worry to knife them in front of them, as 
long as you keep kniving the enemy,he is in pain and needs time to recupurate
and won't be able to lay a finger on you.

Use the sell/buy items
------------------------

If you are low on cash, don't hesitate to sell the treasures to gain money to
buy the weapon and health aids for yourself. But remember,so treasures can 
be combined, thus, raising the values of the treasures,I'm will update the 
Merachant guide soon so be patient.

The art of sniping/art of shooting
-----------------------------------

This is the most important skill to master because this the the most critical 
part to be a very good player. First of I will explain the art of sniping. Any
players who player counterstrike, brute force etc will pick up the skill fast.
Brute force is a good game to improve sniping because it rather similar to 
this game, the characters will breathe and make your sniping inaccurate. So
be sharp and be fast. A fast reaction is also important also. Don't go all
the way to aim the enemy that is moving but predict the spot the enemy is 
going and wait there to go for the kill. The tough part is when Leon tends 
to breathe, so the crosshair tends to move, so a quick aim and scope is a 
fast way to kill enemies. For the art of shooting, it's about the same,
Leon also tends to breathe and make the gun move about, make aim tough and
you might get fed up when target practice comes. One way is to either have 
control your dpad well to aim where you need to be fast to adjust when
gun is raise or put your gun down and raise it again as it will stop the 
aim from moving up and down for a while.

Map reference
--------------

Flashbang crows for items
--------------------------

Yup, just like mgs3, you can flashbang them to straight up to get items that
they will leave behind, but I think it's better to use the handgun to get
one crow at a time rather than use the flashbang unless there are plenty
of them in a group together where you can get all of them at once.

Take notice for all shiny items
--------------------------------

Whether they are keys or treasures or items, they can be identified as they
glow a shiny way, those enemies who leave items behind will glow in red
or greem or blue, grab them in case you are new to the game.

2.6 Rules/options of the game
------------------------------

There are several ways the game will end:

- You die when your life gauge ends
- Ashley is grab by them and they escape from the doors
- Ashley dies
- You are not able to dodge some attacks when screen prompt

Well, Ashley has her health bar on her own,just watch her health. Her 
health bar is on top of Leon's. Leon's main task in the game is to
protect and rescue her and Leon needs to lead her saftely through these
areas and protect her at all costs.

(Commanding Ashley)

The X button commands and decides Ashley movement. Press it once to make her
stay where she is, pressing the second time makes her follow you. At certain
areas where there are containers around that can hide her. Do use the command,
press X near the container and make her hide,this way nobody will hurt her or 
kidnap her.To get her out of the hiding place, just press X again,Leon will
whistle and she will get out and go straight back to Leon.

(Cooperating with Ashley)

At ceratin areas, you are solve the puzzle yourself, where places are too high
up to grab, there's where you is useful in the game, let just say you need
to get over a high wall to unlock the other side of the door, all you need to 
do is to lead her to the wall and the command piggyback will appear and Leon
will help her up. She can help you turn the handle at times while you are 
busy with the enemies,this way, you will concentrate at one thing which 
makes life easier for you.

This means that she is following Leon where ever he goes, when Leon raises, his
weapon,she will either go behind Leon or just duck down if she is front of Leon.

  ( )

  / \

This means that she is alone in the room waiting Leon's next command. This 
command is useful when you hide her or let her stay a place for a while when
you recce around the place or when you need to solve certain puzzles. But
this command is quite dangereous because when left alone too long, some 
cultist may appear out of nowhere and grab her and the game end as describle
above in the Ashley mini guide.

                         CHAPTER 1.1  FOREST

Forest path
------------

After the cutscene explaining the events of what happen after RE 2 and 3,
you gain control of Leon. You can get back to the police car and hear 
the crap talking by the police officer. There are crows along the way,
you can shoot them to get items such as grenades. Then head into the 
small cottage.

Note: Remember to shoot the crows from a distance, or else they will
escape upon hearing the gunshot.

Small cottage
---------------

Continue on and have a cutscene with a villager. After that you will have
to kill him.Shoot him for about two shots,the second or third shot to
stun him in order to run up to him and kick him to kill him. He may or
may not drop items. Then another cutscene is triggered. After that,
barrel up the stairs and grab the handgun ammo. Head downstairs and 
break the windows and wait till the villagers approach. Neutralise them
with your firepower or play around with them to head back the cottage so 
that you won't get attack sideways.

Note: Use the knife to break the crates you see to grab more items as since
it's still early in the game, snakes won't be inside.

Forest path
------------

Follow on the path and enter a small shelter and grab handgun ammo and break
the crates for more items. Move on more and two more crows to snipe to get
more items. Release the wolf from the bear the trap and grab the red herb
near the signpost in the vegetation. Move on until you see a signpost with 
two skulls. As you head down the path, you will see two tripwires on the 
trees, there a free gap on one tree, but don't pass through because there's
a bear trap there. Then aim a villager on the top and shoot him to get
his attention. Then lure him to the tripwire to kill him. Pass through the
destroyed claymore and head up to another shed.Grab handgun ammo and kill
two villagers near the bridge. 

Note: Don't shoot the bear trap because if you use the lure method, he will
go through the bear trap trees.

NOTE: Release the wolf, it might aid you in the future(*hint*)

NOTE: There's a typewriter over at the small shelter,save if you want,but
since this is still early in the game, saving by be a bad idea.

Bridge
--------

Then cross the bridge to another path.

Path 
-----

Then go be near another shed to lure a villager out and dispose of him.Don't
go in and attack him, instead, be smart to use the lure method.Then go in and
grab handgun ammo. Enter the double doors.

Pueblo Village
----------------

Screen will prompt you to use A button. You may or may not want it.So head
left  and till you see a female. Shoot her and dispose of her and backtrack 
all the way and enter the main route. This is where you got their attention
and want all have one motive: Get rid of you. You may lure them to come and 
I believe they come in sets of 5. You may want to use the lure method and  
use grenades to get rid of them. Then head into the double storey house. 
That will give a risk: Chainsaw pain in the ass will be active. But you will
gain a weapon. Push the carboard to the door to prevent them to come in 
easily. Then grab a handgun ammo near the shelf,barrel up the stairs, break
the glass to grab the grenades. Grab the shotgun on the rack and shotgun 
shells and money on the bed.

Throw the ladder down to make them fall. Grab money nearby and head out the 
window and throw the ladder down and use the shotgun to get rid the villagers. 

Whenever you hear a chainsaw,just be wary of the surroundings, if things get 
out of hand,drop down the roof and head into the metallic house. Enter the
house and break the lock of the metal door. And wait for the villagers to
come. Either use the shotgun or grenade when they knock the door open to 
get rid of them all at once until a cutscene triggers where bell tolls.
Why camp in the metallic door? Because they can't destroy the door, they 
can only break open it,there's where they are vulnerable to your attacks,
especially the chainsaw ass. Remember to loot him of gold bars since he's 
hard to kill as he takes several shotgun shots to kill him.

LEGEND:

M = DOOR LOCKED

Now you are alone, feel free to explore around and destroy crates for items,
or wait for the chicken to lay eggs. Go up the tower to grab more items.
Grab the Spinel on the double storey rooftop and the Alert Order file
in the shack northeast. Continue on the northeast path and enter the
double doors.

Note: Why be cautious of the chain saw ass? Because he will decap you 
straight and fast when you are busy with enemies which kills you instantly.
So just you hear the chainsaw noise, look around or retreat. It's best 
you track his movements and keep him in sight if you spot him early and 
when you floor him down with the shotgun.

Note: You are also able to throw the ladder set up by them,if they are high
up, they will plung to death,but the chainsaw guy is around,just do a couple 
of times by waiting for them to climb to the top before flinging them down.
This way also saves ammo

Farm
--------

Well,this is a quiet place huh? Nope, soon as you enter, you turn left and in
the small shack, there's a typewriter there so save if you want. There's a
pearl pendant on the wall,shooting it and you will be able to retrieve it 
but the value will drop. This will trigger an enemy to attack so get rid of 
him if you want. You will then have a choice, whether you want to take them 
all out at once or take them out individually. The other one is at the left 
over at the cow fence, you may get his attention by going the the fence.
There's three over at the hen's fence area,two in the farm, while one is
visble outside,but once one is shot, normally all will come over, then 
take them all out. But if you want them to die as a group, quickly get
their attention, go over the farm, climb up the stairs, you may want to
hit one enemy down because he's up the ladder, then wait while deflecting 
some sickles,until all of them are present,then throw a bomb to kill them
all at once!! There's a sub mission here, see, when you get over the hen's 
fence, you will see a Blue Parchment there, which will reveal a sub mission:
You will need to shoot fifteen blue medallions to get a secret item from 
the merchant, you need to just shoot 10/15 of the blue medallions
to get it. There are seven here to shoot over the farm. There's some barrels
over at the farm as well in small shelter, feel free to break them to get 
some items. Up the ladder in the farm, has a small drawer which as a handgun
ammo. There's two spinels over this area, one is at the farm where the 
barrels are(in the drawer) and the inside the shelter after you jump over at
the bridge. There's also a beerstein, after you head up the ladder,jump over 
the window, drop in the fenced area and break the crate to get it. After you
are done with this area, then go under bridge, then enter the double doors.
There's also an incendiary grenade.

One medallion at the cow fence's area, on the tree.
One medallion is is at the windmill
One medallion is at the double doors on the top after you cross the bridge.
One medallion is on the tree where you got the blue parchment.
One medallion is on top of the farm window.
One medallion is inside the cows barn, on the top of the entrance.
One medallion is on top of the farm also near the other entrance.

Note: This sub mission is completely optional, if you want to get a secret
item from the merchant, you need to just shoot 10/15 of the blue medallions
to get it. If you want to find all the blue medallions, feel free to refer
to the map to look for them,the blue dot refers to where the medallions are.

Note: The Beerstein has little value on it's own, you will need to combine 
them up with some gems to increase the value of it, so just hold on to it
for a while.

Booby trap path
------------------

Move on this path until a cutscene occurs. The villagers has tried to ambush
you by push a big boulder towards you. Quickly keep press A so that Leon and
sprint faster until another command comes, which allows Leon to dodge away 
from the boulder. The command is either A + B or L + R. After dodging, you
may want to backtrack and kick the enemies on the top which tried to kill
you earlier. You need to make them fall to get items. Or else follow the 
dark corridor, there are two sparkling spinels here to shoot. As you reach 
towards the end of the corridor, stop moving, there's bombers around here.
Notice there some wooden barricade near the corridor, stay there and use
the handgun to try to hit the bomber there,once you got his attention,keep
shooting until he falls over and dies, blowing himself up. Another one
should appear and also shoot him until he dies. Switch to the shotgun and
quickly move toward the house because the bomber will be throwing bombs 
inside the house. There's bear traps in the right side of the house, so be 
careful. Use the shotgun to blast the bomber to death or when he throw the
bomb,just shoot the bomb, the afterblast will kill him. The shed on the left 
has trip wire so be careful, then move left,circle around the house, there 
another enemy inside the house, you may shoot him with the handgun, get his
attention to get out of the window and then get rid of him,go into the house
to pick up any goodies including the hand grenade. There's a bird nest to 
shoot on the tree,shoot it to get the red catseye.Move into the other house 
further up,kick the pad lock and slowly move into the house. Grab the handgun
on the table as well as the pesetas,there's also a typewriter here, but don't
bother saving since this is near the end of the chapter. Move in and destroy 
the trip wire on the walls near the small gap. There's also another tripwire
in the next room,then take the 1000 pesetas on the table as well as the green 
herb in the cabinet. Push the bookcase to uncover a secret entrance and move
on and hear bangings in a cupboard, open it to see a cutscene with Luis Sera
and the village chief and this ends the chapter. Save if you want after the
stats is shown, proceed to chapter 1-2.

                            CHAPTER 1-2   VALLEY

Small hut
-------------

Even during the cutscene, they don't let you relax, isn't it? Well, you will
need to dodge when the command is prompt. After the cutscene, move on and 
see a masked mearchant asking you to follow him, well, this is your first 
encounter with the merchant, you need him to survive further in the game.
Anyway, Grab handgun ammo on the shelf and the rifle ammo near the 
typewriter. 

Valley
----------

Exit through the door and go behind the building to meet up 
with the merchant. Look through the list that is there to buy. Feel free
to sell the spinels, the dirty peral pendant. But remember, don't touch the
beerstein and the catseye just yet, because you will need to collect the
rest of the catseye to increae the value of it, refer to the merchant for
the details for it. You may or may not want to but the treasure map, but 
frankly, I find it useless. The important part now is to buy the rifle and
the scope,continue on the path and destroy the two barrels in hope to get
some money or item. Then head back to the front of the hut and see two gaps
to snipe. Try sniping all the villagers from the top,bottom, be sure to get
an accurate headshot. Get out through the double doors, the enemies might 
spot you and cry out loud,just head back in and wait for them to come and 
not go after them head on. the follow the bridge, snipe a villager station 
on top of the house, then cross the the middle bridge as enemies come towards 
you, where you use a handgun with one shot will knock them out of the bridge 
and plunge to death. Go back to the house and destroy the crates to get items,
or else head up the ladder and see a treasure box to get the right half of the
emblem. Exit back and follow the path on the right side on the raise ledge 
and grab the left side of the emblem, after grabbung it will trigger more 
enemies, shoot the explosive barrel if they come near to decimate them in
numbers. After all enemies are cleared, feel free to look around and destroy
the crates to get random items. Combine to two emblems together and go 
northeast and see a small hut here, go inside and grab the yellow herb and
you may want to combine the green herb with the red herb to save space as 
I suggest you keep the rifle for now, if you are really desperate for space,
just sell back the rifle back to the merchant but prepare to make a loss for
now. Use the emblem on the green double doors and enter battle area.

( Info on Ashley )

Name: Ashley Graham
Age: 20
Daughter of the United States President

She was kidnapped by an unidentified group while on her way home from her
university. The kidnapper's motives are still unknown. Although there's 
reliable information that the prepetrator is an insider. Only a handful
of people know about this kidnapping. It's kept under wraps mostly due to
the fact that we can't determine who the traitor is. The guys in intellgence
say they have reliable information that Ashley's sighted somewhere in Europe.
But until we find out who the insider is, I don't know that to believe. It 
could be a ploy. We have a few leads as the whereabouts of Ashley. But members 
of the Secret Service and anyone else related to Ashley are being questioned 
by an investigative team. Even the active agents are being investigated for
any information. It's just a matter of time before the kidnapper is exposed.

( Alert Order )

Recently there has been information that a United States government agent is
here investigating the village. Do not let this American agent get in contact
with the prisoner. For those who not yet informed, the prisoner is being held
in an old house beyond the farm. We will transfer the prisoner to a more 
secure location in the valley when we are ready. The prisoner is to stay there
until further notice. Meanwhile, do not let the American agent near the 
prisoner. 

We do not know how the American government found out about this village. But 
we are investigating. However, I feel this intrusion at this particular 
time is not just a coincidence. I sense a third party other than the United 
States government involved here.

My fellow men, stay alert!

                           - Chief, Bitores Mendez

( About the medallions )

15 blue medallions...
7 in the farm... 8 in the cemetry..

For those of you who destroy more than 10 medallions you will be awarded....

( The rest is illegible. )


( Chief's note )

As instructed by Lord Saddler, I have the agent in the confinement, alive.
Why keep him alive? I do not full understand what the Lord's intentions are.
I would, however, think he'd keep them seperate; not confine them together
as has been ordered. I don't expect Luis would trust the stranger but if by
chance they would cooperate, the situation could get a bit complicated.

If for some reason, an unknown third party is involved, I don't think they'd
let a chance slip by. But maybe it's all Lord Saddler's ploy - leaving us
vulnerable so that the third party will surfaced, if they exist that is....

It's unlikely possibility, but if a prowler is already amongst us, then our
plans could be ruined. I guess the Lord thinks it's worth the risk, if we're
able to stop whatever the conspiracy is at work. At any rate, it's the Lord's
call. We will trust his judgement always. 

( Closure of the church ) 

Regarding the two fugitives, the apprehension of Luis is our top priority; the 
American agent is a distant second. What Luis stole from us is far more 
important than the girl. Unless we get is back, the girl will become useless
to us. We must get is back to execute our plan to the end. If it gets to the
wrong hands, the world would become a totally different place than what Lord
Saddler has envisioned. At all costs, we mustn't let it happen.

Nevertheless, we're not letting go of the girl. To ensure the agent does not
get to her, I have locked the church door where the girl is held. Anyone
who needs access to the church must first get approval from Lord Saddler.
There is a key beyond the lake but it should be safe now that "Del Lago"
has been awakened by our Lord. No one will get accross the lake alive.
Plus our same blood courses through the agent's veins. It'll be just a matter
of time before he joins us. Once he does, there will be nobody else left that
will come looking for the girl.

( Anonymous Letter )

There's an important item hidden in the falls. If you are able to get it, you 
might be able to get Ashley out of the church. But I'll warn you, the church
isn't in the park by any means. They've deployed "EL Gigante", so God bless.
About what's going on in your body...

If I could help you, I would. But unfortunately it's beyond my power.

( Player Manual 3 )

1. Commands - Leon can give commands to Ashley to either "Wait" or "Follow"
by pressing the X button.

2. Ashley and the Action button - Depending on the situation, Leon and Ashley
can cooperate to get past various obstacles.

3. Ashley's health - You can use recovery items not only on Leon but on Ashley
as well

4. Ashley and Game over - Leon has failed his mission if Ashley is either 
killed or carried away by the enemy.

( Sera and the third party )

The whereabouts of Sera is still unknown. Most likely he's using an old secret 
passage taught bto him by his grandfather who used to hunt in this region 
long ago. I'm pretty certain that he's hiding in our property somewhere in the
forest. If his grandfather is still alive, I would have used him to find Sera.

But how did he find out about the egg injected in his body? And the fact he 
was able to remove it before it hatch is concerning. Another fact that Sera
escaped with our property just before the American agent arrived. I don't
believe that it was just a coincidence.

There could be another player involved in this. In order to settle the whole
situation, we have to capture Sera and wait for the drug to wear off before
we inject him with another egg. Once this is done, whoever behind this will
surfaced. Nobody shall interfere with our plans. Those who do shall suffer
severe consequences.

( Two Routes )

Just a while ago, I was informed by Lord Saddler that our men had shot down a 
United Stated helicopter. There shouldn't be any more outside interference
for a while now.Unless the United States government determines who the traitor
is, they can only initiate very small covert operations.

We must use this time to our advantage and recapture the girl. The two 
Americans can only get out of our territory by using one of the two routes. 
This is where we will stop them. We shall make use of our forces to the 
greatest degree. We will deploy a large number of Ganados in one of the 
routes to ensure that they do not slip by us. For the other route we shall
leave the task to EL Gigante. Whichever route they take, the agent will 
never leave here alive. Not with the girl at least.

( Village's Last Defense )

I clearly underestimated the American agent's capability. He's still alive.
I thought we could wait until the egg hatched, but at this rate, he could
destroy the whole village before it does. We must take care of this nuisance.
We shall change our priorites - for the time being, we will cease hunt for
Luis and ambush the two Americans.

There is a building used to enlighten betrayers just beyond the point where
you get off the lift. It's a perfect place ambushing them. If all else fails,
they would face me in order to get past the last gate that leads out of 
village. For only my sight will the gate open.

Castle Files
--------------

( Capture Luis Sera )

I have confirmation that Sera has entered the castle. Why would he return
during the escape leaves me to question his motives. But we must seize
this moment and capture.We will get the other two Americans after we 
apprehend Sera. 

It appears he took some vaccines when he stole our "sample". The vaccines
we can do without but we must retrieve the "sample" for it is our life
blood. I feel there is somebody else or other group involved in this 
affair. If the "sample" were to get into the hands of the other entity,
the world which we seek to create will not come. We must apprehend Sera
as quickly as possible.

( Luis' Memo )

There are some parasites that have the ability to control the hosts. It's
basic knowledge among biologists but not much is known as to how the parasites
do it.Studying these parasites specifically might reveal some clues to as to
how the power of the Las Plagas work. And perhaps provide more insight on the
victims of the Las Plagas, the Los Ganados. Here is a list of parasites that
have the ability to manipulate the behavioral patterns of their hosts.

Dicrocoelium

Once the larvae of this parasite migrates to the ant's esophagus, it alters
the behavior of the ant. When the temperature drops in the evening, the 
infected ants climbs to the top of a plant and clamps onto a leaf using its
mandible. It stays there until the next morning, placing the ant where it's
most vulnerable to be eaten by a browsing herbivore such as sheep. One could
conclude that the parasite is manipulating the host's behavior to make its 
way into the body of its indefinitive host.

Galactosomum

The larvae of this parasite makes its home inside the brain of a fish such as
yellowtail and the parrot brass. Once infected, the fish will make their way
up the water's surface where they'll swim until eaten by seabirds. Once again,
this peculiar behavior can only be explained by the parasite's desire to get
into the bodies of the seabirds.

Leucochloridium

This parasite's sporocysts develop in the snail's tentacles. The sporocysts
are vivid in color and pulsate continually somewhat like a worm. Surprisingly,
the infected snail makes its way to the top of the plant where it is more 
visible to the eyes of the birds, therefore more likely to be eaten. Once
eaten by a bird, the parasite will complete its metamorphosis into an adult.

( Castellan Memo )

For many years the Salazar family has served as castellans of this castle.
However, not everything is bright, for my ancsetry has a dark past. Long
ago there once was a religious group that had deep roots in this region
called the Los Illuminados. Unjustly however, the first castellan of the
castle took away their rights and powers. As a follower of this religion
and as the 8th Castellan, I felt that it was my duty as well as my 
responsibility to atone that sin. I knew the best way to atone for the sin
was to give power back to those we once took it away from the Los Illuminados.
As expected it took a little time, but we were able to rejuvenate the once
sealed Las Plagas. With this success I was once step closer to the revival 
of the Los Illuminados. The reason why I released the Las Plagas from deep
under the castle and gave them to Lord Saddler was not only to repay for
the sins of my ancestors but I felt certain that the Lord would make better
use of this power to help save the world.

To save those that have sinned with the power of the Las Plagas and to cleanse
their souls creating a world without sinners. The way it was meant to be. Once
cleansed, they would become one of the many Ganados where they find their 
reason to live. And after the Lord has succeeded in creating the world in
which he has envisioned, then the sins of my Salazar family will be atoned for

( Female Intruder )

There seems to be a female intruder among us. We believe she's connected with
Sera. We also believe that she was the one who removed the egg injected into
Sera before it hatched. She may have had him retrieve the "sample" before the
American agent's arrival. It's obvious that her objective is the "sample".
We must get to her before she is able to reestablish contact with Sera.
There's also rr reason to believe that she's working for somebody. We meed 
her alive for interrgation. The female should be able to answer all our 
questions. After we have captured her, Sera will no longer be a concern.
As long as we retrieve the sample, you may dispose of him as you see fit.

( Butler's Memo )

Knowing that Sr. Ramon Salazar had no family, Lord Saddler must have used his
strong faith in the Los Illuminados to his advantage to talk Sr. Salazar into
the seal of the Las Plagas once done by his ancestor. Sr. Salazar would 
never done such a thing unless he was in some way being used unknowingly.
I should have sensed the Lord's dirty scheme sooner. I feel partly responsible
for all this. I have no idea what the Lord is planning, but Sr. Salazar was 
just being used. It is too late now however, Sr. Salazar has already taken
the Plaga into his body. There is no turning back once the Plaga has turned
into an adult in the body.

The plaga parasite will not die unless the host dies. There's no cure. Perhaps
Sr. Salazar may have been vaguely aware of the Lord's plan all along. But it's
hard too tell. Nevertheless, there's nothing I can do about it now. I have
served the Salazar family for generations. I am prepared to continue my 
services until the very end.

( Sample retrieved )

As you may have heard, Luis Sera has been disposed of by Lord Saddler. The
"sample" is back where it belongs. I had hoped the whole matter could be 
resolved without troubling the Lord. However, as long as the "sample" is
safe we can all rejoice, for our time is nearly at hand. Now that the "sample"
is back in our hands, it'll be a bit more difficult for that troublesome
woman to get it. In light of all this, it's unfortunate that Sera had to go.
Like us, he would have a bright future if only he had shown more faith in
our beliefs. As for the two Americans, the Lord has left the matter in our
hands. We must not disappoint the Lord. We shall capture Ashley and take her
to the Lord and dispose of the American agent.

( Ritual preparation )

Thanks to the efforts of the "Novistadors", we have been able to recapture 
Ashley. We shall prepare for the scared ritual as quickly as possible and 
make Ashley an offical member of the Los Illuminados. While we prepare for
the ritual, those who feel inclined can attend to our American friend. 

We should be able to hold off our friend for at least a little while by 
jamming the gears in the clock tower with something. I think we jam gears 
in 3 places, we should give us enough time to prepare everything for the 
ritual. Now go and entertain our American tourist.

( Luis' Memo 2 )

The first castellan buried the Las Plagas deep underground to hide their
very existence. But when Salazar released the Las Plagas, on one thought
he could bring them back to life. Because when Salazar found them they
were all in fossilized remains. Everyone knew that the parasitic organisms
could not survive without hosts. That they could't substain life on their
own. But when Salazar and his men excavated the remains, it almost appeared
as if they were just waiting to be discovered so that they could resurrect.

Several years later, unexplainable convulsions started occuring among the 
villagers helped with the excavation with the Las Plagas. Then one day, all
of a sudden, these villagers turned violent savages. They later found it was
caused by the Las Plagas. Although they appeared fossilized, they were able to
survive the long years by lying in a dorment state at cellular level remaining
in a spore like form. Apparently, during the excavation, the villagers inhaled
the spores and within their bodies the parasites became active again. This was
how the Las Plagas was resurrected. Even as I'm writing, excavation of the Las
Plagas continues. God only know how may Las Plagas have been resurrected. Not 
to mention the countless number of Ganados that have been created. Their 
inhumane activity must be put to the end. If they are not stopped, people 
around the world could turn into victims of this crazy cult organization.

( Letter from Ada )

Once the Plaga egg hatches, it's nearly impossible to remove it from the body.
But if it's before it hatches, then it can be neutralized by medication. If it
does hatch you might get it out by surgery before it turns into an adult. But 
it won't be easy. There's a high chance you won't survive the operation. As 
far as I know the girl is injected with the egg before you. Her time is 
ticking. You should be prepared yourself with the worst case scenario.

Island files
---------------

( Luis' Memo 3 )

The hideous creatures such as El Gigante and the Novistadors are merely by - 
products of the diabolical and inhumane experiments conducted on the specimens
that were once human. But there's one type that clearly distinguishes itself
from the rest. Those creatures are called Regenerators. Regenerators have 
superior metabolism that allows them to regenerate their host body parts at
an incredible speeds. I've never seen anything like it.........

It is this characteristic that makes them almost invincible to conventional
weapons. But like any living creature, there's a way to kill it. Apparently
there are Plagas that live in its body somewhere like leeches. To stop its
regeneration process, these leech - like Plagas must be located and then
destroyed. But they can't be seen with naked eye. They can only be located 
through thermal imaging. As far as I know, most of the Regenerators host a 
number of this leech-like Plagas. To kill the Regenerators, each one of these
leech - like Plagas must be killed.

( Paper Airplane )

Perhaps you have it figured out already, but you might be able to get out of 
here by using the waste disposal vent.

( Our Plan )

Because of the agent we lost chief Mendez and Ramon. Nevertheless, everything 
willproceed according to plan. I must admit however, the loss of my loyal men 
is a bit  disheartening. But I will deal with it. Replacing the loss will not 
come easy. I must choose wisely, for the Plagas reflects the conscience of
their hosts. If chosen poorly, they could betray me. I need men who will 
swear their allegiance to me. I've learned my lesson when Sera betrayed me.
I will not make the same mistake again. In this important hour, I cannot 
and will not have anyone stand in my way.

( Luis' Memo 4 )

I'll report my findings about the Plagas here. The Plagas have 3 distinct
characteristics.

1. As mentioned previously, the Plagas have the ability to manipulate the
behavioral patterns of their hosts.

2. The Plagas are social organisms. By this I mean that instead of living 
individually, they live in perfect social harmony. It is believed that they
have a collective intelligence.

This type of behavior can be seen among insects such as bees and ants. However
this kind of social behavior is rarely seen among parasitic organisms.
Perhaps it was learned behavior of the Plagas. I'm finding out if this has 
any relationship with their first characteristic.

3. The Plagas have expectional adaptation skills. They are able to live off
many kinds of organisms by creating a symbiotic environment quickly. This
ability, combined with their social behaviors, allows them to interact
intellgently between hosts regardless of the host organism. 

I am ashamed to admit my pure fascination with the Plagas, in hindsight, has
blinded me to true research objectives of the Los Illuminados. Even with the
knowledge of Saddler was going to abuse the results of these experiments, 
I could not pull myself away from my research. As a result, I am just as 
responsible for this whole mess as he is. I see now that I was wrong, but
can I stop their evil plans alone......?

( Krauser's Note )

It turns out that the old man Saddler wasn't buying me from the start. Even
though I succeeded in kidnapping Ashley, I sort of sense this when Saddler
didn't completely let me in the loop. Under the circumstances, I had no other
alternative but to call for her assistance. Perhaps she knew this was the way
it was going to turn out all along...

My guess is that her ultimate goal might be different from Wesker's and mine.
This is just the perfect opportunity to find out. And after I get rid of Leon
and retrieve the sample, I'll put her in a bodybag along with Leon and sent
them both to Wesker.

( Luis's Memo 5 )

From the initial stages of the research, we have been searching for a safe and
practical removal procedure of the Plaga. Ironically, it turns out that the 
real objective of this research was not to find a way to remove the Plagas 
from the infected person but to find a way so that the Plaga could not be 
removed from the body easily. In the end, we are able to find out the Plagas
could be removed only by exposing them to a special radiation. The only
drawback with this method is that it is a very painful procedure. Since the
Plaga attaches itself to the nerves, there is a possibility that it may impair
the consciousness of the host. Another fact that must be mentioned is that once 
thta Plaga turns into an adult, the removal procedure would kill the host. But
perhaps death isn't so bad when you think about the alternative.

( Our mission )

The real power of the United States lies in three areas.The Justice Department
, the Administrative bodies, and the Military. In order to take control of
these areas, we must influence the minds of the people who advice the 
President. Adter this is done, the rest of the departments will quickly fall
under our sway. If by chance the United States were to figure out our plan,
the damage caused should be minimal.

We will still be able to conquer the country as planned using out backup plan.
Once we control the country, we will use their international influence to our
advantage. The rest of the world will fall swiftly. As already stated, if our
first plan doesn't go smoothly as expected, we'll proceed to our secondary 
plan. By sending our "special" forces we will infiltrate the country from 
within. Fear and Chaos will spread through the nation like a virus. It'll
only be a matter of time before the country loses its stability. At that 
time, when they're most vulnerable, we will strike. Rejoice my brethren;
the world shall soon be cleansed.
