    Hello and welcome to this short guide explaining what the downloadable camos 
    are, how to get them and what you need to get them. 
    As changing your camouflage is so important in MGS3, some of the camos that 
    are available to download can be quite useful. 
    This is the first Metal Gear game with Net Features, and is definantly a 
    worthy add-on for the series. Some of the camos available to download are 
    serious ones, that can be used in the environments presented in Snake Eater, 
    but some of them are more, comical, for example seeing Snake fight a Boss 
    Battles in a Santa's outfit is quite amusing to say the least. 
    Coupled with the camos already available in game, and the ones your can find 
    along the way, the downloadable camos just build on the collections of camos. 
    If you see any mistakes or would like to add something to this FAQ, then feel

    wording in the subject.

                   -4.HOW DO I ACCESS AND DOWNLOAD THE CAMOS?-
    Well I thought I would start the ball rolling, firstly by telling you how to 
    access the downloadable camos. 
    The first thing you need is an Internet Connection, as the camos come from the 
    magic world of the interweb. Once you have that, connect up with a Network 
    Adaptor to your PS2, (or if your flash and have a new slimline model like me, 
    just whack the cable in the back). 
    Once that is all done, you are ready to download some camos!
    Right to actually get to the area where the camos are kept, you need to select 
    the "SPECIAL" icon from the Main Menu. This will take you into another menu, 
    where you should see a icon that says "CAMOUFLAGE DOWNLOAD", this believe it 
    or not is where you need to go. 
    After selecting this you will be presented with a Disclaimer, about Terms and 
    Conditions for the use of the download service (which I can say is totally and 
    utterly free). Hit the "ACCEPT" button, and you will be taken to another 
    This screen informs you that the camouflage download will take up 850KB of 
    space on your Memory Card. If you do not have the space, then go and clear 
    some space for the download. If you have the space, then proceed by using the 
    "YES" button. Next select the Meoery Card you want to save the camos onto. 
    Once you have done this, your Network Configuration name(s) will be displayed. 
    Once this is displayed, select the relevant name, and the game will connect to 
    the Internet and gather the camouflage data. 
    The camouflage list is then displayed on screen. 
    To view a camo, or to download a camo, select the one you would like using the 
    D-Pad, and then use Circle to view the camo. A preview of the camo and its 
    name will be displayed on screen, also with an option to download the camo 
    onto your Memory Card. 
    If you select "NO", then you will be taken back to the Camo list, where you 
    are free to view the other camos. If you select "YES", then the game will 
    begin to download the camo to your Memory Card. A bar will show the saving 
    progress, and then if the download has been succesful, the message "Camouflage 
    download successful". You will be prompted to chose which Memory Card you want 
    to save to. Once you select which card the camo is going on you will be 
    prompted to create a new save file for the camo. The game will always ask you 
    to do this for each camo, so don't dispear!
    Once you have downloaded the camos you want, they are on the Memory Card for 
    you to use any time in the game. 
    At present there are 9 camos available to download. This might not sound like 
    a lot but they are definatly worth downloading, mainly because some are 
    hilarious, but some actually work in the environmemts. 
    Firstly I will go through the 9 camos available, explaining the pattern and 
    its use in the game. 
    Camouflage List
    01 - MUMMY:
    This camouflage is exactly what the name suggests, a load of bandages. Once 
    the camo is selected, Snake will be completed covered in banadages, apart from 
    his harness and pistol holster, which are exposed. The mummy camo will also 
    make Snake immune from gunshot wounds and other injuries such as broken bones.
    (Mummy Camo Immunity submitted by Kraiden (Matthew Gray) Cheers!)
    02 - GRENADE:
    This camouflage covers Snake in grenades, and actually gives you infinite 
    grenades, be it Stun Grenades or normal Grenades. Other then that, this camo 
    is not very useful, be it can be quite fun throwing infinte grenades at the 
    bodies of the guards and can also be useful in Boss Battles.
    03 - SANTA:
    Perhaps the most comical, and least serious of the camos available, this camo 
    sees Snake taking the role of St Nicholas. This camo only covers Snkaes legs 
    and torso, camo does not come complete with hat!!
    04 - St.V (St Valentine):
    This camo dedicates its self to the man of love. The rather fetching pattern 
    comprises of roses and hearts, which looks rather funny when worn. 
    05 - EGERMNY (East Germany):
    This is where the normal and useful camos come in. This is the camouflage that 
    was worn by the East German soldiers during the division of Germany. The camo 
    is similar to a desert camouflage with orange specs on a baige background.
    06 - WGERMNY (West Germany):
    This camouflage is what was worn by the West German soldiers during the 
    divide. The camo is grey with a badge of the German flag on it. Can be used 
    for urban areas. 
    07 - S.WOOD (Soviet Woodland):
    The camo that the soviets use during woodland situations, this camo has no 
    green in it, just a brown pattern material that displays a disruptive pattern. 
    08 - U.TIGER (Urban Tiger):
    This camo is similar to South African patterns, but uses baige and grey 
    patterns on a slightly darker grey colour, which is useful for, as the name 
    suggests, urban areas. 
    09 - KLMK:
    This pattern is simliar to what parachutes use, but it is also good for leafy 
    areas, and also woodland. The pattern comprises of two colours, a green 
    background, with a light green pattern acting as the disruptor. 
    Well that is the list of the downloadable camos. I will now tell you how to 
    access them whilst in the game. It is very similar to the way you normally 
    change camos. 
    Once in the game, Pause it and select the "CAMOUFLAGE" options from the list. 
    Then select "UNIFORM". Now this will be familiar to you, the list of camos 
    currently available to you in game, and the ones you may have found. 
    In this menu, hit the right button on the D-Pad, and the game will check for 
    camos that are present on either of the two Memory Cards (press Right again 
    for the second Card). Then the camos that are on the card will be displayed. 
    Just simply select which one you want, and the game will load it up, and dress 
    Snake in it.
    In game, in thr top right corner where your current camo combination is 
    diaplayed, the downloaded camo will appear as "DOWNLOAD"...quite clever 
                     -6. SPECIAL CAMOS FROM THE CD SOUNDTRACK-
    Konami released a CD Soundtrack for the MGS3 game, and on the CDs are special 
    bonus camos. In this section I will tell you how to access them and what they 
    Firstly you will need to go to the Main Menu of the game. Then go into the 
    section marked 'Bonus'. The screen will go blank for a few seconds, and then it 
    will ask you to open the disc tray and insert the Special Key disc. Insert the 
    disc marked 'Disc 001' from the CD soundtrack, and the game will check the disc 
    (DO NOT INSERT ANY OTHER CD / DVD). Once the game has found the camo, it will 
    download it to the game. It will then ask you to replace the disc in the tray 
    with the game (MGS3), and then you can continue with play. 
    The camo that is downloaded is called AUSCAM DESERT CAMO, which is used by the 
    Austrailians. The camo is very effective against white backgrounds, or 
    mountainous areas. 
                               -7.THANKS AND CREDITS-
