    Just a couple of notes
    ................................................................................
    Why anyone would steal this guide is beyond my comphrehension. If you really
    want to take credit for this...go ahead. I really don't care. Why take credit
    for this guide instead of an actual good guide is kind of flattering to be 
    honest. I wrote this guide because I noticed a user named "ffviiifreak" wanted
    help with some achievements. I found it kind of amusing since the achievements
    are pretty easy so I thought "Oh what the hell" and just wrote this up.

    THE ACHIEVEMENTS
    ................................................................................
    
    A.1 RANKED MATCH
    - Played one ranked match. 10G
    
    - As of now, the first two achievements on this list are the most difficult to
      get. Practically no one plays this anymore excpet for a handful of hardcore
      fans. If you do manage to find someone in the lobby, congrats! Now just fight
      them, and watch as they completely mop the floor with you. Don't worry, you
      don't have to win to get this achievment.
    
    B.10 RANKED MATCHES
    - Played 10 ranked matches. 20G
    
    - You got lucky and there a couple players in the lobby? That should be an
      achievement in itself if you as me. Well, just keep playing and hope these
      players don't leave. If you haven't found anyone, let me impart with you a
      tip: there seems to be a couple fans that play this on Wedsday nights. I've
      seen a whopping 4 people playing this game once. It was amazing.
    
    C.WATCH A GAME
    - Watched one match. 10 G
    
    - Go to the spectator option on the main menu and either watch two CPUs duke
      it out or watch a battle you may have had on Xbox Live.
    
    D.300 HITS
    - Scored a total of 300 hits in Single Player or Multiplayer mode. 25G
    
    - No. Not a 300 hit combo or something. Just an accumulative 300 hits. Going
      through Arcade mode once will probably unlock this achievement. Good times.
    
    E.FIRST WIN
    - Defeated an opponent in Single Player or Multiplayer mode. 20G
    
    - Chances are you won't be getting this easily in Multiplayer, so just play
    Arcade Mode and beat the first opponent. Wasn't that easy?
    
    F. INFIGHT
    -  Scored a close-range attack in Single Player or Multiplayer mode. 25G
    
    - Pretty easy to get in Arcade Mode when using RVR-14 Fei-yen Kn (the girl
      robot). As soon as the match starts, just run up to your enemy and hit
      the left or right trigger to do your physical attack. Remeber, it's called a 
      close ranged atack for a reason. You have to be a point blank range to 
      pull it off effectively. Very easy.
    
    G. PERFECT
    - Earn a PERFECT in a Single Player or Multiplayer match. 25G
    
    - There are a number of ways to make sure you beat an enemy without losing any
      health:
    
      1. Most enemies suck at recovering from close ranged attacks. Smack them and
         as they recover, smack them again. Rinse repeat.
    
      2. Put it on the easiest difficulty. Seriously, they rarely even attack.
    
      3. Run around like a headless chicken, dodging their attacks and pick them
         off from afar. AKA: "Shoot them until they die"
      4. Try doing this is an eary match in Arcade mode. Specifically the first 
         opponent. They don't do anything.
    
    H. RANK IN
    
    -  Uploaded a Score Attack score to rankings. 15G
    
    - There are three things you'll need to get this achievement:
    
      1. Be on Xbox Live
      2. Have a Gold Account
      3. Have a pulse
    
      Just play Score attack until you get a game over and since you're online it
      will upload your score to the online rankings.
    
    I. CUSTOM VR
    
    - Used a customized VR in Single Player mode. 10G
    
    - Pretty simple. Go to the customization option on the main screen, choose a
      character you want to pretty up, and then customize the colors. Be sure to
      save your desgin and then go to Arcade Mode. At the character select screen
      go to the top right and choose the Dreamcast VMU load your custom character
      and you'll be awarded with the achievement.
    
    J. VS. AJIM
    - Battled Ajim (Ajim appears after winning repeatedly by letting time expire
      in Arcade mode) 20G
    
    - So this guy is like the Akuma of Virtual On or something. He's basically
      supposed to be a punishment for winning in the lamest way possible.
    
      The easiest way to encounter him is to put the game on the easiest difficulty
      and beat the CPU to an inch of their life, then just run around the stage
      avoiding the attacks the CPU may throw at you. I encountered him on my second
      time doing this. I've heard its random. Just get a few of these wins in a
      row and he'll show up. You don't have to beat him either. You get the
      achievement for just encountering him. He's pretty tough. 
    
    K. BRADTOS
    
    - Defeated Bradtos in Arcade mode. 10G
    
    - This is the mid boss of Arcade mode. Or the Land Boss. Whatever.
    
      When he first shows up, he's like this big Tank-ish thing. You'll notice
      damaging him doesn't seem very effective right now. Just dodge his attacks,
      strafing around him works for most of them but for those long laser cylinders
      just jump over them and countinue strafing. Eventually, he'll open up and
      show off his Green Crystal. Just shoot the hell out of it. It'll eventually
      close and you'll go back to dodging his attack. Then it'll open again. He
      should be dead the second time he does his. Good job!
    
    L. TANGRAM
    
    - Defeated Tangram in Arcade mode. Letting time expire does not count as 
      a win. 10G
    
    - Here we are. The last Boss and the last acheievement. This journey has been
      a long one probably a good thirty minutes, so lets remember the good times
      we had and get back to kicking this guy's ass.
    
      Basically, it's the same tactic as Bradtos. Strafe around him and you'll
      eventually do real damage to him once his large eye appears. He does have a
      few attacks that validate him as a final boss for a fighting game though: he
      can summon a copy of you that flies around. I've never had it do anything 
      by fly in front of me occasionally, Not a big deal. He fires a flurry of
      lasers when his eye opens, just strafe while firing and it won't be a problem.
      Lastly, he fires HUUUUGE laser that can kill you instantly. You can tell 
      when he'll do this becase you'll see him charging it. Once again, strafing
      is key. After his eye appears for the third time, he should be dead if you've
      been constantly firing on him. Congrats! You now have every achievement in
      Virtual On!
