    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     1. PLAYER MATCH
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Player Match allows you to compete against other players and watch online
    matches. There are three main options: Quick Match, Custom Match, and Create
    Match.
    
    >QUICK MATCH
    When you select Quick Match, the game will find the optimal game session based
    on connection speed and give you the option to join it. It simply connects you
    to which ever lobby it finds to be the fastest. You are able to see who is in
    the session and what its settings are before you decide to actually join the
    session. You cannot filter the search by game mode, etc.
    
    >CUSTOM MATCH
    Custom Match lets you search for a game session that meets the conditions you
    select.
    -"Search Session" performs the search using the guidelines you have selected.
      The returned results will show the Session Name and flag, the number of
      player out of the total possible number of players in the session, the Game
      Mode, the connection speed (Red=Poor, Yellow= Mediocre, Green=Excellent), and
      the Status (Either the players are "Playing" or in the "Lobby"). You can
      refresh these results by pressing the X Button, or create your own session by
      pressing the Y Button. Selecting a session will bring you to a screen with
      more detailed information, including the names and grades of everyone in the
      match. From there you can decide to "Join" or go "Back".
    -"Avatar" does not impact the search, this is where you select which of your
      avatars you want to use when you join a game.
    -"Game Mode" lets you select the kind of online battle you are looking for, and
      the "Any" option can be chosen to include lobbies of any game mode in your
      results.
    -"Battle Type" lets you search for either Single or Tag Battle matches, and the
      "Any" option will all lobbies of either battle type to appear in your
      results.
    -"Grade" allows you to alter your search to only include lobbies that contain
      players between a certain grade range. Holding the X Button and moving left
      or right will change the minimum grade allowed, while holding the Y Button
      and moving left or right will change the maximum grade allowed. Your current
      letter grade is highlighted in yellow and must be contained within the range.
    -"Language" lets you choose if you want to filter rooms to ones that only speak
      English or leave them open to any language.
    
    >CREATE MATCH
    Create Match lets you create a game session as a host.
    -"Create Session" creates a game session with the conditions you have chosen.
      You are then sent to the game's lobby. Pressing the X Button will also create
      the game session, and the Y Button will revert the settings back to their
      default.
    -"Avatar" lets you select which avatar you want to use for this session.
    -"Lobby" lets you select which lobby you want to use for your session.
    -"Receptionist" allows you chose the appearance of your lobby's receptionist.
      Every lobby has its own default receptionist, but you choose to make it look
      like any of the avatars you currently possess.
    -"TV" allows you to change the lobby's TV. Every lobby has its own Small Size
      TV by default.
    -"Session Name" allows you to name the session you are about to create. You can
      enter the name using a controller and the on screen keyboard or by plugging
      in a USB keyboard. The special symbols listed in the "Text Chat" section of
      this guide can also be entered.
    -"Game Mode" is where you select the session's game mode. This option can be
      changed later using the Receptionist.
    -"Battle Type" is where to select to have the session be either Single or Tag
      Battle. This option can be changed later using the Receptionist.
    -"Life Gauge" is where you set the size of the life gauge for the combatants.
      This option can be changed later using the Receptionist.
    -"Match Point" is where you set the number of rounds needed to win a match.
      This option can be changed later using the Receptionist.
    -"Round Time" sets the time limit for a single round. This option can be
      changed later using the Receptionist.
    -"Max Players" lets you set the maximum amount of players allowed in a session.
    -"Friend Slot" lets you set the number of slots you want to keep reserved for
      players that are on your friends list.
    -"Grade" lets you limit your lobby to players whose grade falls within a
      specific range. Holding the X Button and moving left or right will change
      the minimum grade allowed, while holding the Y Button and moving left or
      right will change the maximum grade allowed. Your current letter grade is
      highlighted in yellow and must be contained within the range.
    -"Language" allows you to signal other players that you either don't care what
      languages are spoken in the session or that you want it to be English only.
    -"Flag" lets you choose what nation's flag you want to appear next to the
      session name when it appears in people's search results.

    which are awarded for winning matches. The inventory of Zack's store randomly
    changes every night at midnight, but if you've been saving up for a specific
    item and don't see it, there is a trick. Zack's Shop relies on your XBOX 360's
    clock to tell it to change the inventory, so from the dashboard you can to the
    "System" menu, then "Console Settings", "Clock", and finally "Time Zone". By
    changing the time zone to either a day ahead or behind your current setting, it

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     1. CONTROLS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    >STANDARD CONTROLLER CONTROLS
    A BUTTON..........................."Select" in menus or what the cursor is over
    B BUTTON..........................."Back" in menus
    Y BUTTON...........................No function
    X BUTTON...........................Brings up onscreen keyboard for text chat
    RIGHT BUMPER.......................Turns on or moves text chat window
    LEFT BUMPER........................Turns on or moves text chat window
    RIGHT TRIGGER......................Rotates camera
    LEFT TRIGGER.......................Rotates camera
    LEFT ANALOG STICK..................Moves avatar or selection in menu
                                       (Click to hide gamertags and cursor)
    RIGHT ANALOG STICK.................Initiates emote (total of eight)
    D-PAD..............................Moves cursor or selection in menu
    START..............................Opens the recepetionist menu
    BACK...............................Quits lobby or backs out of menus
    
    >ARCADE STICK CONTROLS
    The controls for the arcade stick are slightly different than that of the
    standard controller. Since it has only one stick, you must hold down the
    Y Button and hit a direction with the stick to perform an emote with your
    avatar. To move the cursor you must hold the B Button and press a direction
    with the stick. There is no way turn on or off the display of gamertags and the
    cursor.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     2. TEXT CHAT
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    If you don't have a microphone or simply don't want to use one, text chat is
    supported in the lobbies. While this can be performed with the controller by
    pressing the X Button and entering in the text using the onscreen display, it
    is far less tedious to simply plug in a USB keyboard. Plus, using a USB
    keyboard allows you more freedom to customize your text. The Right and Left
    Bumpers allow you to view the text messages in an instant messanger format
    rather than as bubbles above the avatar's heads. Balloon and text color can be
    changed in the Receptionist's menu under "Online Options".

    >CENSORSHIP
    Text Chat has filters that censor almost all profanity. You will have to get
    VERY creative if you want to type naughty messages, because it recognizes all
    but the most obscure slang. It is also good at recognizing symbols that look
    like letters, so don't think you can bypass the censorship just buy using
    dollar signs and zeros. The most interesting part of the censorship, however,
    is that it also censors some words that aren't naughty at all. For example,
    the words "Microsoft", "Bill Gates", "Bungie", and "Halo" are all banned.
    Ironically you can type "Tekken" and "Sony" as much as you want. This
    censorship also applies to naming sessions.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     3. THE RECEPTIONIST'S MENU

    the game using this option.

     4. MISCELLANEOUS LOBBY FEATURES
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    >THE CHAMPION CROWN
    The Champion Crown is a jeweled crown that floats high above the avatar of the
    player who is currently in control of the lobby. When you create a lobby it is
    a good idea to immediately select "Join Match" that way the Champion Crown is
    given to you.
    
    >PARTNERING-UP FOR TAG BATTLE
    If you are doing a Game Mode that supports Tag Battle, you can partner with
    another player for 4-player tag matches. To ask a player to be your partner,
    simply select the player with the cursor or using the "Players" menu, and then
    press the X Button. If the player accepts, you and your new partner will have
    matching symbols in front of your names.
    
    >STATUS INDICATORS
    - Green Gamertag: The player has not joined the match.
    - White Gamertag: The player has joined the match.

    the Gambler's Paradise and The D.W.A. Coliseum stages. Your motto can be
    changed by selecting your Gamer Profile, going to "Edit Gamer Profile", and
    then "Motto". It can be up to 21 characters long.
