    *******************************************************************************
    7.b) Hints and Tips
    ----------------
    
    Here I am going to give you some tips on how to get the Time Attack
    Achievements...
    
    Firstly, you are going to need to sort out the settings, Make sure...
    
    The Life Gauge is on Smallest.
    
    The Match Point is on 1.
    
    The game is set on Normal Mode.
    
    Time Attack Single Hints and Tips:
    ---------------------------------
    
    Done? Okay, make sure you use a powerful but quick character for
    the single mode achievements... I recommend Hayate...
    
    Now just kill the enemies as quickly as possible. The fight against
    Alpha-152 can be hard sometimes, so below I'll list some basics on
    how to defeat her.
    
    Here you go:
    ------------
    
    Make sure you do not attack her when she is getting up, otherwise she
    will teleport and hit you.
    
    Backflips and charges up attacks are good against Alpha-152, so
    make sure you take advantage of Hayate's powerful and quick moves.
    
    Don't worry about her countering, she rarely does that, so always be
    on the offence.
    
    Thats about it!
    
    Time Attack Tag Hints and Tips:
    ---------------------------
    
    Make sure the settings are the same as listed above... the characters
    you should choose are Hayate and Ayane or Hayabusa... I recommend
    Ayane because she is quicker.
    
    Just focus on killing the enemies as quickly as possible. If you
    don't get the gold first, then keep trying and you will eventually
    get it.
    
    Good Luck!

    but I got my achievement by just doing those moves!
    
    *******************************************************************************
    8.d) The Survival System:
    -----------------------
    
    Okay, this is pretty simple stuff, but it really does help a lot, especially
    if you want to reassure yourself...
    
    See as you kill people in survival mode, they are different levels...
    I'll explain in greater detail below
    
    Level 1:
    ---------
    
    Level 1 are the following number of kills, 1-6, 11-16, 21-26, 31-36. 41-46,
    51-56, 61-66, 71-76, 81-86 and 91-96... these are the easiest enemies to
    beat, these are the enemies you want to be spamming just one or two moves
    on... they hardly ever counter, and their defence is awful... if you give
    them a chance to attack, they will do quite a lot of damage... so make
    sure you are always offensive against these characters...
    
    What I am saying is that the difficulty doesn't change whether your
    fighting 1 or 91!
    
    Level 2:
    ---------
    
    Level 2 are the following number of kills, 7-8, 17-18, 27-28,37-38, 47-48,
    57-58, 67-68, 77-78, 87-88 and 97-98... these are harder than level 1,
    but they are not that hard, keep your cool and you'll be able to defeat
    these with ease... Keep doing the moves you did for level 1, but add one
    or two new moves to keep them on their toes...
    
    Again, I am saying that the difficulty doesn't change whether your
    fighting 8 or 98!
    
    Level 3:
    ---------
    
    Level 3 are the following number of kills, 9, 19, 29,39,49,59,69, 79,
    89 and 99... these enemies are tough, but can be dealt with easily with a
    few new moves, and maybe a couple of low attacks...
    
    Again I am saying that the difficulty doesn't change whether your
    fighting 9 or 99!
    
    Level 4:
    ---------
    
    Level 4 are the following number of kills, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70,
    80, 90 and 100... these enemies are the toughest you will face, but if
    you mess them up with low attacks, and a variety of other attacks, then
    you should have no problem with them...
    
    Again I am saying that the difficulty doesn't change whether your
    fighting 10 or 100!
    
    *******************************************************************************
    8.e) Survival Single:
    -----------------
    
    Okay, I'm going to give you a few tips and hints to get you to your
    100 wins, first off...
    
    Have the setting on Hard Mode, I know what you're thinking, but seriously
    I could not get 100 on normal mode, then I did it on hard mode and got the
    100! Just trust me... if it doesn't work, then try it on normal... Also
    make sure the life is on smallest... Now begin...
    
    Remember, choose Hayate...
    
    Everytime someone enters the ring, do 236P, if they are in the right
    position they will hit the ring and then bouce off it, do this move
    again and this will have knocked over half their health down!
    
    You should mainly do 236P, 66KKK and 2RT on Level 1 enemies...
    
    On Level 2 enemies you should continue doing this, but also do 7K...
    
    On Level 3 enemies you should change your moves, do 2RT still, but also
    do 3RTKP and 9KKK...
    
    On Level 4 enemies, really mix up your attacks, do 236P as soon as they
    come in, then PP2KP and also 4RT followed by 2K, Also 8PK and
    8P8K come in handy for these enemies...
    
    Good Luck!
    
    A side note... Keep to the guide, and pause it every so often to let yourself
    have a break, if you feel shaky towards the end, take a break and pause
    it, you have all the time in the world! Also, only counter if your 99% sure
    of what the computer is going to do, if you keep countering, you'll
    get killed!
    
    *******************************************************************************
    8.f) Survival Tag:
    -----------------
    
    Okay, this is the easier one to do... I'm going to give you some tips and
    hints to get your 100 wins, firstly...
    
    Have the difficulty either on Normal or Hard, Normal is recommended
    for this one... Once again, have the life setting on smallest... Now begin...
    
    Remember, choose Hayate and Hayabusa or instead of Hayabusa, your
    best character...
    
    Use the same technique as before with Hayate... if either one of your
    tag members get hurt, tag them out and play with the other character
    for a while, while the character who is hurt is inactive, his/her life
    will regenerate...
    
    Good Luck!
    
    A side note... Keep to the guide, and pause it every so often to let yourself
    have a break, if you feel shaky towards the end, take a break and pause
    it, you have all the time in the world! Also, only counter if your 99% sure
    of what the computer is going to do, if you keep countering, you'll
    get killed!
    
    *******************************************************************************
    8.g) Items:
    -----------
    
    Okay, below I am going to list the Items in Survival Mode, this is
    going to be in a list so you can see more clearly.
    
    Here you go:
    ------------
    
    
    Candy
    Crown
    Doughnut
    Hot Dog
    Hourglass
    Ring
    Slots x3
    Treasure
    Xbox
    Xbox 360
    
    Unfortunately there is no way on the game to check and see which
    Items you have or haven't got, so make a list and then cross them out
    when you have got them...
    
    On a side note, the slot machines look the same, but listen to the sound
    they make, they are all different and that is how you will know if you
    have them...
    
    Good Luck!

    *******************************************************************************
    9.b) Ranks
    -----------
    
    In this section I am going to tell you about the Ranks on Dead or Alive
    Online, and how to get the certain rank you are looking for...
    
    Here you go:
    -----------
    
    Ranking System:
    ----------------
    
    The Ranking System works in Grade Points, if you win then you gain
    Grade Points, and if you lose then you lose Grade Points... Also if you
    beat somebody who has a higher rank than you, you will gain extra
    Grade Points, but if you lose to someone who's rank is lower than
    yours, then you will lose extra Grade Points.
    
    Pretty Simple huh?
    
    How to achieve Ranks F, E and D:
    ----------------------------
    
    To achieve these ranks, go online and lose... a lot, you could also
    ask your friends to help you get these achievements by having them
    beat you all the time.
    
    How to achieve Ranks B, A, S and SS:
    ------------------------------
    
    Okay, these achievements can be tough... if you want an easy way,
    ask your friends to let you win, if you keep winning you'll get them
    eventually... having a high winning streak as well helps, because you
    get extra Grade Points for having a higher streak.
    
    Good Luck!
    
    *******************************************************************************
    9.c) Stars:
    -----------
    
    In this section I'm going to tell you how to get the stars...
    
    These achievements seem quite tricky, but they are not... you
    can have your friends help you, have them beat you the correct
    number of times, and then let you win... or there is another way.
    
    It's not a cheat, you need to have a second controller, with a second
    account... it doesn't necessarily have to be an online account...
    
    Now have the account you do not want the achievement for,
    ( Your offline account ) beat the account you do want the achievement
    for, ( Your online account ) the correct ammount of times. Then beat
    the account with the winning streak and go online. Enter a games room
    where people are fighting and join in the session... make sure that there
    are more than two people in the room, so you don't have to fight.
    
    Now when someone has won a game while you are in the room, you will
    get the achievement... pretty simple huh?
    
    *******************************************************************************
    9.d) Winning/Losing Streaks:
    ------------------------
    
    These achievements are very easy to get, all you have to do is have
    your friends let you win or let them win... another way is that you can
    just go against lower grades to get the wins, and go against higher grades
    to get the losses!
    
    It really is that simple!
