Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles File Finding Guide By: animan12 Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Aim: ttoissexy102 Date: 11-20-2007 Updated: 11-27-2007 ---------------------------------------------- This FAQ is written for those having trouble finding the files in the game. The files give great background information on the story of Resident Evil. I encourage those who have this game to find the files. ---------------------------------------------- Note: I played the game on easy mode for less trouble for finding files. When I explain shooting something under or next to a green herb, you may get confused. If you're playing a scenario only for the files. I suggest going to the options menu and changing the difficulty to easy mode. Table of Contents ======================= 1.Train Derailment A. Chapter 1 B. Chapter 2 C. Chapter 3 2. Beginnings A.
