    Dynasty Warrior 3 is an incredible battlefield action game by Koei. Although
    it is a lot fun, there are a few things in the game that need improvement in
    my eyes. Ever felt that some character's weapon sucks? Or some general's 
    weapon has no element? With a GameShark, these problems can be solved. It 
    can help to add tons of replay value to the game. However, it can also ruin
    the game by making everyone Lu Bu like characters. It all depends on how you 
    use it. 
    II. Basic Weapon codes
    All codes can only be activated after a save game. Simply start a game, quit
    and save and the codes will take effect.
    Master Code (Must always be on code)
    0E3C7DF2 1645EBB3
    0C0C4C1F F88C8A6B
    *Note: This code MUST be the first one on your code list.
    For second/third/fourth basic weapon codes, please visit www.Gameshark.com.
    Basic first weapon codes:
    (Contributed by troopermax)
    2C298xx5 F8FC????
    Where xx determines the weapon and ???? determines that weapon's strength.
    More on the ???? part of the code in the next section.
    xx values:
    7D Iron Sword
    7F Broad Sword
    71 Scimitar
    73 Spear
    75 Halberd
    77 Hand Axe
    79 Club
    7B Twin Sabers
    8D Twin Rods
    8F Mace
    81 War Fan
    83 Chakram
    85 Battle Axe
    87 Bronze Claw
    89 Iron Flute
    8B Iron Rod
    9D Tonfa
    9F Double Voulge
    91 Staff
    93 Nanman Gauntlet
    95 Boomerang
    97 Twin Fans
    99 Bastard Sword
    9B Rapier
    III. Weapon Basic Attack and Hit Modification codes
    xxxxxxxx yyyy????
    The "x" and "y" part of the code is the "Basic weapon code" found on Gameshark.com.
    The ???? part of the code determines your attack and hit value.
    For example, if you want to change Dragon Spear's AT and Hit to Sky
    Scorcher's At and Hit:
    (Dragon Spear's Basic Code)
    2C298AD5 F8FC2E2E  
    change it to:
    2C298AD5 F8FC "1955" where 1955 is Sky Scorcher's stats.
    Now you have a Dragon Spear with Sky Scorcher's basic attack and Hit value.
    IV. Weapon Attribute codes
    xxxxxxSL yyyyNNAA
    SL: Weapon slots
    NN: Attribute value
    AA: Attribute type
    Let's start with the SL part. For different slots, the "S" digit must always
    go back 1 digit. The "L" digit must always change to "C". Then from there 
    add 2 digits for each additional slot. Here are 2 examples.
    Example 1:
    (Blue Dragon basic code)
    2C298AE5 F8FC2D21
    2C298A"DC" F8FC2D21 = Slot 1
    2C298A"DE" F8FC2D21 = Slot 2
    2C298A"E0" F8FC2D21 = Slot 3
    2C298A"E2" F8FC2D21 = Slot 4
    2C298A"E4" F8FC2D21 = Slot 5
    First, the "E" in E5 goes back 1 digit to "D". "5" changes to "C". 
    Then add 2 digits for the next slot. "DC" + 2 digit = "DE". "DE" + 2 digits
    = "E0". Do the same for 2 more times to get all 5 slots.
    Example 2:
    Wrath of Heaven
    2C298D15 F8FC1A52
    2C298D"0C" F8FC1A52 = Slot 1
    2C298D"0E" F8FC1A52 = Slot 2
    2C298D"10" F8FC1A52 = Slot 3
    2C298D"12" F8FC1A52 = Slot 4
    2C298D"14" F8FC1A52 = Slot 5
    **EXCEPTIONS: There seems to have exceptions to the rule above.
    (contributed by troopermax)
    Dragon Spear
    2C298AD5 F8FC2E2E
    the first/second slot code are expected to be:
    2C298"ACC" F8FC2E2E
    2C298"ACE" F8FC2E2E
    However, that is wrong. The correct code should be:
    2C298"9CC" F8FC2E2E = Slot 1
    2C298"9CE" F8FC2E2E = Slot 2
    2C298"AD0" F8FC2E2E = Slot 3
    2C298"AD2" F8FC2E2E = Slot 4
    2C298"AD4" F8FC2E2E = Slot 5
    *After analyzing another exception (discover by Spenze), I come up with 
    an "Exception rule". If the general rule does not work for your weapon's 
    1st and 2nd slot, apply the following rule:
    Instead of changing only the last 2 digits, you must also make sure the 
    3rd to last digit go back one digit. 
    Take the Dragon Spear for example. Instead of making only the "D" in "D5" -> "C",
    you must also make the "A" in "AD5" back 1 digit to "9". So the first slot would be 
    "9CE" = second slot
    Only the first TWO slot follow this rule and the rest still follows the general rule.
    This new rule works for the first 2 slot of any weapon that doesn't follow 
    the general rule.

    Still with me? Now you'll have to insert the value and the attribute on 
    your weapon of choice.
    Blue Dragon 
    2C298AE5 F8FC2D21
    2C298ADC F8FC "32"F3" = Slot 1 +60 HP
    2C298ADE F8FC "14"F0" = Slot 2 +90 Musou
    2C298AE0 F8FC "38"F4" = Slot 3 +70 Bow Attack
    2C298AE2 F8FC "D0"F5" = Slot 4 + 30 Defense
    2C298AE4 F8FC "2C"0A" = Slot 5 + 50 Musou Charge
    Wrath of Heaven
    2C298D15 F8FC1A52
    2C298D0C F8FC "26"0B" = Slot 1 +40 Reach
    2C298D0E F8FC "37"FE" = Slot 2 +55 Speed
    2C298D10 F8FC "1B"F1" = Slot 3 +99 Jump
    2C298D12 F8FC "3C"F6" = Slot 4 +66 Mounted Attack
    2C298D14 F8FC "0F"09" = Slot 5 +79 Mounted Defense
    *Note on attribute values:
    The Maximum value for any attribute is 255. If you go over that limit
    its value will revert to 1.
    Base stats when max out (without any weapons or items):
    HP:  105
    MP:  105
    AT:  155
    DEF: 155
    Additional values from weapon + items:
    HP:  +150
    MP:  +150
    AT:  +100
    DEF: +100
    Just remember to keep your stats within the 255 limit.
    V. Weapon Element Codes
    xxxxxxxA yyyyEEFF
    First of all, no matter what the basic weapon codes is, the last digit
    of the first half of the code MUST change to "A".
    Now EE determines the element of that weapon:
    C0 -> Fire alone
    EF -> Fire + Death 
    CA -> Lightning alone
    AE -> Lightning + Death 
    DA -> Death alone
    FA -> Non-elemental
    Fire + Lightning -> ?? 
    (Highly wanted. If anyone can discover this digit, he/she will be 
    rightfully credited.)
    Now FF determines add on effects of that weapon:
    (Add on effects are Def x2, Att x2, Fire Arrow, True Musou and the like)
    0A -> True Musou
    10 -> Fire Arrow
    FF -> All effects (Def x2, Att x2, Fire Arrow, True Musou, etc)
    Blue Dragon 
    2C298AE5 F8FC2D21
    2C298AE"A" F8FC"AE"0A": Lightning + Death Element + True Musou
    Wrath of Heaven
    2C298D15 F8FC1A52
    2C298D1"A" F8FC"EF"10": Fire + Death + Fire Arrow
    *Note: Some characters previously don't have an element also can't activate 
    the elemental attacks even if you gave him/her one.
    Known characters so far: Pang Tong, Da Qiao, Xu Zhu, Zhang Fei.

    VIII. Frequently Asked Questions
    Q: None of the codes are working!!
    A: Make sure the Master code is on. It must be the First code on your code 
       list. Start a game, quit/save and the codes should work. 
    Q: I am totally confused, help!!
    A: If you are totally confused, then try enter the code for the 2 examples
       1 by 1 to understand them better. If you still don't get it...
    Q: I enter the codes on weapon X and the game freezes when I try to 
       view/equip it.

       this problem, simply input a 5 slot correct attribute code to overwrite
       what you have previously entered.
    Q: I enter a +50 Tiger Amulet and now my general don't do any damage!
    A: If you increase the attribute by too much, that attribute will reset
