Cleaning Chip Folder
Organizing your Battle Chips in your Chip Folder can be tedious if you forget this.
While in your Chip Folder (Right or Left side), press Start and you will be able to
sort them in six ways:
1- By ID. (Order in your Chip Library)
2- By Alphabatical Order. (In Japanese version, Katakana order)
3- By Code. (The letter in the lower-right corner of the chip)
4- By Attack.
5- By Element. (None, Elec, Fire, Water, Wood)
6- By Quantity. (Number of chips you have for the same chip)
And if you choose the same type again, the order will be reversed.
HP Memory: Adds 20 permanent points to your HP. (Rise your level by 1)
Power Up: Upgrades your buster gun up to five points for each stats. (Level + 4)
(Don't forget to equip once you have them and they are permanent)
Attack: Adds a point of damage for each shot.
Rapid: Speeds up your shooting.
Charge: Speeds up your charging. (You need at least two to charge)
Armor: Armor you can equip to protect you from attacks. (Level + 8)
Aqua Armor: Protects from fire attacks.
Fire Armor: Protects from wood attacks.
Wood Armor: Protects from electric attacks.
Mystery Data: Those crystals are found in the cyberspace and contain zennies or
Battle Chips. Some of them are random and return every time you jack-in.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I'm stucked! What do I have to do next?
A: This is a RPG: Talk to everyone, check every area again, check your e-mail often.
Q: I cannot find the password to unlock the door in NumberMan's lair.
A: This is tricky if you have the Japanese version: the password changes
every five times.
On the middle of the first line you can see a Japanese character that can be
either "small" or "big".
"Small" is a vertical line with one small line on each side: the password is too
"Big" is a horizontal line and a vertical one crossing it and separating in two
in the middle: the password is too big.

A: If you're playing on emulator, I have heard you cannot go any further, sorry...

Q: Where is Version 2 or Version 3?
A: The Version 2 bosses (FireMan, StoneMan, ElecMan, BombMan, ColorMan, MagicMan,
PharoMan, ShadoMan) are always hidden in dead-ends on the Internet.
As for the Version3, they are random on the Internet, but Version2 need to be found first.
Q: PharoMan and ShadoMan are nowhere to be found, what gives?
A: You need to be at level 70 or more to see PharoMan and you need to have at
least 140 different Battle Chips in your Library for ShadoMan
Q: Where is Bass?
A: You need to:
Have a star next to "continue" (i.e. beaten the game at least once)
Have 174 Battle Chips in your Library
Be over level 70
Find Bass ramdomly in Internet-16
Q: Can I get Bass? (Battle Chip #176)
A: As far as I know, you can only get Bass at special events from Capcom or Nintendo.
(As with "Mew" in "Pokémon")
Q: I cannot enter Internet areas 11 to 16.
A: Those areas need a special condition to be entered.
For Internet-14, you need to collect at least 10 chips from Internet-13.
Some areas can be accessed if you had a good Busting Level or didn't escape in
the previous area, if you fail, you need to return to the beginning of the area.
Check the Internet section for more details.
Q: I cannot get the Battle Chip I want in battle, what can I do?
A: Some Battle Chips need a Busting Level of 10 or S. (see section 11)
But even if you don't move, get no damage and delete your enemy in a second,
you will get a maximum level of 9 . The trick is to defeat your enemy at the same
time as another one in the same battle. This will rise your Busting Level.
Q: I have trouble defeating enemies, can you give me tips?
1- Charge your Buster, fire, then use an offensive Battle Chip right after for
maximum damage. The Buster-Sword or Buster-Cannon combos are very effective.
2- Also, there's a trick for evading the "wave-type" attacks:
For example, when a Gaia does its explosion wave attack, try to walk THROUGH
the wave and if you time it correctly, you will not take damage!
3- Try to keep a balanced deck of Battle Chips by having long-range attacks,
multiple enemies attacks, direct attacks, shields and effects chips.
Q: What are the Mystery Data that says it cannot be decoded?
A: Those are Battle Chips you already have. Don't bother trying to get them.
Q: How can I got money fast?
A: Although I do not recommend it because of damage you could inflict to your
cartridge, save just before you take a Mystery Data and if you don't have a good
amount of money, then reset. (Start,Select,B,A)
Q: How can I fight a specific enemy in random places?
A: Same thing as in the previous question: save, run around and if you don't like
the enemy, then reset. (Start, Select,B,A) It's very good for fighting random
bosses on Internet. The same Battle Chips often return that way, so exchange them
with powerful one!
Q: How can I get the Battle Chip I want in the Chip Trader Machines?
A: Ditto. Look previous question.
