CHEATS
 
 
Secret wanzer:
After mission 59 do the following:
Go to (ARMOREDKIN/OTHER/JAPAN) then go to the BBS. Go and look at the 3rd message and you will see a phone number 555(XKR)224. Take the number to (AUSPEND/OTHER/AUSTRALIA) and use the Inferno Dial located in the Garbage Pit and dial the number. The parts of the new wanzer will be placed in your inventory so you will have to put it together yourself. You also get a powerful laser gun.
 

CHALLENGES

 

I place before you all a mini-game, for those of you who love the game pls check this out... Also, if you don't like my mini-game, try some of my other skill tests.

In Emma's Story, the final Boss is Lukav and four big ass mecha which look like his. They have mini-guns, and two missile pods. Here is my first challenge. I myself have completed it, and have had some wonderful fun...

CHALLENGE 1
~GODZILLA!~

It is a well known glitch, that if you eject someone, they will only get into mechs that began under their control, or they CAN be booted into your mechas if they are empty and right next to them. Here is my challenge.

Eject all four pilots, and then Lukav. Your mechs will be left alone, and you can play with their god toys. This can be accomplished with a CPU which raises activation to high, and having everyone with Hardblow on one arm and their Battle Skills all Eject Punch. Now, try and kill the pilots that are running around like Godzilla extras with the Hardblows that all the boss mechs have!

CHALLENGE 2
~All counter victory!~

This is something I can't do past the seventh mission in Alisa's story. In Emma's story it's only possible in battles where the enemy has no missiles. Basically, you can move and destroy stuff. You MAY NO ATTACK THE ENEMY. Defeat a battle using counters alone and items. Also, I will give someone bonus if they can do this, and get higher then a silver because it takes extra rounds of combat, which is the biggest drain on your percentage next to level weapons that are to high.

CHALLENGE 3
~METHANE WANZER VICTORY!~

Using the internal dialer, call the Barilir family, and get the special methane wanzer. Now, upgrade it to full and send it into a training battle. Field matters not, as long as it's not the JDF testing base. Now, see if you can win with ANY pilot in the game alone. If you need the phone number, look into gameFAQs for the number.

CHALLENGE 4
~HIDDEN ITEMS!~

In the first five missions, there are some hidden items in boxes, cars, ect. Find them. In total there are like, fifty items hidden. More are in Emma's story then in Alisa's. List battles which have hidden items. They are to be named by what story you did them in, and where they are taking place. This is like a scavenger hunt, but it's a tough one.

These challenges are made for those who like to mess around, and like a good challenge. Not to be taken seriously unless you want to meet my challenge!

CHALLENGE 5
~~NAME THAT SPRITE!~~

How many non-Player Hero Sprites can you get to see in action? Jose and Dennis don't count because the join your party. Same with Lan. Here's a list. I may or may not be exactly this long.

Cindy
Gastor
Joe
Rosivia
Kuroi
Isao
All of the Linny's reletives in Methane Wanzers (Difficuly high as heck
because of low enemeny HP.)
Pierre
Jose's COmmander (Pilots a Monster)

I'm at a loss for who else, but I've gotten close to half that list. Mostly, it's because they were detailed enough to give each of them their own sprite. I was suprised as heck when I popped out a very blond and very black Joe sprite!.

CHALLENGE 6
~S-RANK MASTERS!~

Alright, now, it IS POSSIBLE to have an S rank on everything, INCLUDING CANNONS because you can steal a tank in training mod. Now however, can anyone master , or at least get a D rank in all weapon skills? Also, to make it that much hared, it must be done with one of the following.

Linny
Mayer
Lan
Li/Jose

This is hard and time consuming. But, it's the biggest challange I can think of.
CHALLENGE 7
~CANNON LVL UP!~

How high can you get the cannon weapon skill? In order to even train with it, you have to capture it in a training battle from a tank.

Network Passwords
 
Note: If you are wondering how the heck passwords are acquired in the game, wonder no more. Notice that sometimes you can download software from various sites in the FM3 network. These programs can help you to decode text messages or graphical items downloaded from the net. For example, there is this picture that is too small to see. Simply just use some picture enlarging software and you should be able to see something. Usually, the text items are not so direct in giving you the passwords that you require, some will need problem solving techniques. You can also obtain passwords after missions. Sometimes you will notice blue writing at the bottom of the screen. Thats a password for a particular site. Thanks to sompop@earthlink.net for the newest passwords!

The only ones of real interest are SQUARE and HODAKA (if you enter HODAKA in Emma's scenerio you can get another wallpaper after Miss teikhou is announced). They're all confirmed to work on the PAL version (there is only an English language one released in the UK - Germany and France got translated manuals only), and they're at least a complete list of all non-hidden e-mails as i've played both scenerios extensively, though there are probably more hidden.
 
Also of interest and I haven't seen anywhere, look at the Barilar farm website and there is a phone number, I think it's 12A-56BC or something like that (don't hold me to it as I didn't write it down), but if you enter it onto the infernal dialer at the Auspend Garbagepit before 555-XKR-224 to get the Hoshun Mk112 and Heavy P beam gun, you will call the barilar farm and be told the line is busy (maybe it's possible to get the Methane WZR somehow!), and there is a phone number 1-TAX-HELL at the Auspend BBS, saying to call between 22:00 and 2:00, I tried it and it didn't work so I assume it must be done at a very specifc time if it does anything, and that would mean delaying getting the Hoshun as I believe the Infernal Dialer dissapears afetr you get the Hoshun >_< nev@r67.net
