                      FAQ\Walkthrough, version 3.79.
               Author: Hedin2004 (hedin2004@yandex.ru).
                          Date: 24 october 2005.

In 2083 a pollution of Earth turned nearly all planet into lifeless desert.
Only mutants lived there in ruins. Normal life has stayed only in oceans
and big cities. There is a dense mist in the air of the cities, and only a
small amount of sunlight can get through it. A lack of sunlight is met by
lots of lamps and ad lights. Somehow humans have survived, maybe with the
help of cyber technologies and gene engineering. All states we knew have
vanished. All big cities are united under the rule of the World Government,
but in fact corporations are in charge. Corporations encourage people who
are loyal to them. But of course the are some elements, who live without
corporation's laws. Corporation's databases doesn't have their personal
data, they are hunted, but they can't be annihilated, because they perform
dirty work for corporations. Two professions are claimed: warriors and
hackers. Corporations on the one hand hire such people, and on the other
hand companies suffer from them. That is why corporations began to hide
their treasures outside of big cities in secret places in the desert - in
restricted areas.

*************************************************
  2.1. Notes about the game itself.
*************************************************

Restricted Area is a Diablo-like RPG. There are 4 types of characters in
this game. After selecting the type and code name, the data of your hero
is saved to his/her personal file. When you load the game, you select one
of the personal files. This files with the info about heroes can be
selected to play game in the net.

In Restricted area each character has only one save slot. There are two
types of saving the game: quick save (The quick save button can be
selected in main menu); save with exit. So, you can't reload game, because
you can't exit without saving. But the is a way of creating several saves
of one character. You can find a directory with saves and copy files with
saves. This will help you to overcome some bugs or to "reload" the game.
 
If you begin a new game, you can select one of the difficulty levels:
normal, hard, realistic. Normal level is the easiest way to play. On hard
level all the enemies become stronger. On impossible level you loose the
hero's data if killed.

In Restricted area you can take a lot of quests. If you complete the quest
you gain some prestige points. Prestige points influence desert monsters
level, the quality of side quests and your rank. If you are on a quest you
can exit the quest area in any time. Just talk to a pilot, who brought you
there. If you exit the quest area and return to the city before the quest
is completed or your character is defeated, you loose half of Prestige
points, which you can get for completing of this quest. I recommend not to
quit quest areas before completing the quest if you want to gain money
and experience. There are a lot of side quests in Restricted area, so
gaining experience and credits is not a problem. The maximum value of
prestige points is 100. Maximum character level is 100.
Experience table:

When you take a quest, the quest area will appear on the world map. When
the quest will be completed, the quest area will disappear from the world
map.

During the adventures your character will gain experience points (exp) and
level up. Each time your character gains a level, he/she receives
development points (DP). You can spend them to increase primary skills and
secondary skills. You can increase your primary skills in inventory window
while spending primary skill development points (1 point of primary skill
for 1 primary skill development point). You can increase your secondary
skills in secondary skill window while spending secondary skill development 
points (view the cost in Secondary skill list section).

Boxes in deserts or bases can be hit and destroyed, and some of them can
contain items, so try to destroy all boxes you see. Chests can contain
items. If you move the mouse cursor to the chest and the chest will be
marked by the yellow bound, you can open it. If the chest will be marked by 
the red bound - it is locked. To unlock all the chests you must have a crow
-bar in your inventory.

Barrels in deserts or bases are filled with fuel and explode when hit. When 
the barrel explodes it hits all objects, which are near: close boxes are
destroyed; other barrels also explode; simple enemies are seriously damaged
or killed. If you kill enemies with the help of the barrels you also gain
experience. Do not hit barrels, when your character is near them.
 
*************************************************
  2.2. Maps basics.
*************************************************

In Restricted area all maps except city maps have different for the each
character structure. The game has a fixed number of maps. Sometimes a map
is randomly selected, but a group of maps are connected to the story line.
Selected story maps depend on the character. Objects which are randomized:
positions of boxes, barrels, chests, enemies; places, where you can get
items; dropped items properties. Objects on maps are created during
traveling through them!

Mini-map is shown in the upper-right part of the screen, if enabled. You
can set mini-map activation button in main menu. Blue points on the map
show the location of characters you can talk with. Red points on the map
show the location of map exits or pilots, without whom you can't exit map,
characters, who can give you a quest, the location of key items. Yellow
points show the location of the terminals, which help to travel to the
cyber reality (Only hacker can use them). White point shows the hero
position on a map. When you arrive to the desert location, note that the
ship with a pilot are not shown on the mini-map.

When your character enters the map for the first time, it is unexplored.
When a character enters a room it becomes explored and appears on the map.
Desert maps are always explored, because they are "single-room maps". If
you see a red point on the unexplored part of a map - it is a destination
point.

When your character is traveling with allies, each ally is shown on the
mini-map like a moving red point.

*************************************************
  2.3. Equipment basics.
*************************************************

In Restricted area only weapons can be normally equipped. Instead of
equipping armor or accessories, characters implant artificial body parts.
To implant an item your character must have a tolerance equal or greater
than minimum tolerance value of an item. After an item is implanted the
current tolerance decreases by the minimum tolerance value of an item.

Some enemies can drop random items. If you stop the cursor on the dropped
item look at the name of the item. If the color of the name is white - 
this is a simple item. If the color is blew - the item has additional
random properties, and it is made by one of the companies. If the color is
yellow - this item is an artifact: it has a great random additional
properties and doesn't belong to any corporation.

When you equip (implant) weapons and body parts with the same creator
corporation your character receives a primary skill bonus. The bonus is
connected to the quantity of body parts with the same creator.
Quantity   Bonus
1          No bonus
2          +1
3          +2
4          +3
5          +5
6          +7
7          +9
8          +12
9          +15
Bonus types are listed below.

Body parts bonus:
1) Pharma Inc. - Dexterity.
2) Money Group - Intellect.
3) Invention Corp. - Reaction.
4) Life tech. - Constitution.
5) M.A.R.S. - Strength.
6) Life vision - Willpower.

Weapons bonus:
1) Any corporation - Weapon damage (Bonus*5%).

In Dee's weapon shop you can upgrade weapons. Each level of upgrade costs
some credits and increases weapon damage.
1) Machine-guns: +6 damage per upgrade level.
2) Flame-throwers: +50 damage per upgrade level.
3) Pistols: +10 damage per upgrade level.
4) Shotguns: +8 damage per upgrade level.
5) Katanas: +25 damage per upgrade level.
6) Cyber claws: +15 damage per upgrade level.
7) Plasma-guns: +8 damage per upgrade level.

You can also tune the grip in weapon shop. This costs a lot of money, but
increases your weapon stats. If you upgrade a weapon, it's grip
modification cost increases. Increased stats depend on a weapon type.
1) Flame-throwers: damage +20%.
2) Machine-gun: attack +20%, damage +20%.

In Doc's equipment shop you can rotate bio/cyber arms and legs for
credits: turn them from right to left or from left to right. You can also
pay credits for turning cyber implants wear proof (without wear) and tune
up bio implants (minimum tolerance value of an implant becomes 0).

Bio implants: bio arms, bio legs, eyes, brains, hearts, skins, boosters.
Cyber implants: cyber arms, cyber legs, artificial bones, skin guard;
adrenaline pump; reflectors; cyber hearts.

In shops you can modify implants and equipment. If you choose this option
the modifying window will appear where you can select implant's or weapon's
properties. The more quality - the more is the price.

In Restricted Area epuipment has an endurance like in Diablo 1, 2. You can
fix equipment if you talk to Doc and pay him money. But you can also use a
tool box to fix equipment.

*************************************************
  2.5. Characters.
*************************************************

In this section there is not only information about the heroes, but my
opinion how to equip and level up them too. It is only an advise, so raise
your characters as you want.

#1. Johnson.
Birthday: 10.10.2046.
Height: 1,89 m.
Weight: 98Kg.
Hair: Dark Brown.
Eyes: Pale Blue.
Class: ranger.
Exp receiving rate: the lowest.

Information:
Johnson is a former member of the global government special forces, which
were founded to make sure that the worldwide government maintains control
over the companies' private armies. After the political influence of the
companies became bigger, the special forces were dissolved. As a former
enemy of the companies, Johnson's chances of getting a job somewhere are
bad, and he doesn't like to work for his former enemies anyway. He decided
to become a professional criminal, living from jobs like stealing
prototypes of new cyber ware and assassinating important people.

Special features:
 - he can equip flame-throwers and plasma guns.
 - can throw grenades.
 - flame-throwers and plasma guns have energy, but it can quickly recover.

Description: If you are playing the game for the first time, Johnson is the
best choice for you. It is easy to complete the game with his help. Equip
flame-thrower as quickly as possible (It is dropped by the enemies). Pay
attention to these primary skills when leveling up: constitution (always 1
DP), dexterity (always 1 DP), strength or reaction (choose where to spend 1
DP). Pay attention to these Johnson's secondary skills when leveling up:
flame-thrower, increased tolerance, first aid, running, head aiming, hyper
speed (see chapter 5.4 for more details). 

#2. Parker Jessica.
Birthday: 15.07.2061.
Height: 1,72 m.
Weight: 56Kg.
Hair: Synthetic/Pink.
Eyes: Blue. 
Class: hacker.
Exp receiving rate: the highest.

Information:
First accused of data crime at the age of 13, Jessica was jailed for life
when she was 17. In prison, she learned one thing: The executive is your
enemy. At the age of 22, she escaped with help of a self-build robot drone. 
Now she has to hide from the police. As she is the weakest character
physically, the flying robot drone guards her wherever she goes--except for 
cyberspace. 

Special features:
 - she has a robot guardian.
 - she can use computer terminals to visit cyber reality.
 - some of her skills require control points, which can be received in
cyber reality.

Description: If you play as Jessica, equip machine-gun. Pay attention to
these primary skills when leveling up: constitution (always 1 DP),
dexterity (always 1 DP), strength or reaction (choose where to spend 1 DP).
Pay attention to these Jessica's secondary skills when leveling up: first
aid, machine-gun, running, and all skills, connected to the robot guardian
(see chapter 5.5 for details). Cyber guardian is her best weapon, so visit
cyber reality and search control points there to fill robot's energy.
Always spare robot's energy and use it only in difficult situations, for
example in boss battles.

#3. Takahashi Kenji.
Birthday: 12.01.2057.
Height: 1,76 m.
Weight: 72Kg.
Hair: Black.
Eyes: Brown. 
Class: warrior.
Exp receiving rate: low.

Information:
Kenji is the son of a powerful Yakuza boss who tried to kill his father but 
failed. Now he has to escape, as the Yakuza is trying to kill him. He
doesn't remember the exact incidents and believes that someone has betrayed 
him, as he has no reason to kill his father. Grown up with traditional
japanese values he is a great sword fighter and a very loyal and honorable 
man.

Special features:
 - he can use katanas and cyber claws.
 - he can equip 2 pistols at the same time.
 - he can use "super moves" and "battle magic", which spend Zen (energy).
 - Zen recovers while hitting the enemies and barrels.

Description: At the beginning of the game choose, what type of fighter
Takahashi will be: close ranged or long ranged. This influences secondary
skills greatly. If he is closed-range level up Katana's skills, else level
up 2 pistols skills. Don't forget about evasion, health recovery, iron
skin, bullets evasion secondary skills (see parts 5.1 and 5.6 for more
information). Pay attention to these primary skills when leveling up:
strength (always 1 DP), dexterity (always 1 DP), constitution, reaction or
intellect (choose where to spend 1 DP).

#4. Williams Victoria.
Birthday: 02.03.2060.
Height: 1,78 m.
Weight: 62Kg.
Hair: Blond.
Eyes: Green. 
Class: wizard.
Exp receiving rate: high.

Information:
Victoria is the first known human gifted with psionic abilities, a form of
mental magic, but these abilities were also a curse. The Osaki Company was
so interested in researching the psi phenomenon that she was kidnapped as a 
child and doesn't know her parents or her surname. She was jailed in an
Osaki laboratory until she was 20, when she managed to escape. Although
this was four years ago, she is still persecuted by Osaki. As her last
hideout was discovered, she has to start a new life.

Special features:
 - she can use magic, wich spends the energy points.
 - if a dropped item is far away, she uses telekinesis to get it.
 - energy points depend on remaining tolerance.
 - energy points recover automatically.

Description: If you play as Victoria, equip machine-gun. Don't forget, that
Victoria's energy points depend on remaining tolerance. So try to equip as
many bio-implants as you can and tune them up as quick as possible. In this
game you'll really need 3 spells: Heal, Paralyze and Mind storm. Only bosses
have immune to paralyze, but simple monsters and semi-bosses (leaders) can
be paralyzed. Mind storm is a good thing to kill enemies through the walls.
It also good works in chapter 3.1.8 of walkthrough. Don't forget about
healer, machine-guns, running secondary skills (see parts 5.1 and 5.3 for
more information). Pay attention to these primary skills when leveling up:
intellect (always 1 DP), dexterity (always 1 DP), constitution, reaction or
strength (choose where to spend 1 DP).

------------------------------
Character development strategy by Grifman:

"Early on, you need to put points into stats other than intelligence
because you need the abilities the stat increases bring. However, by mid
game, the stat increases you can get from cyber/bioware far outweigh any
stat increases you get upon leveling up. I've got cyberware that have
basically doubled or tripled my base states. So at this point I start
dumping everything into intelligence to build skills - my stats are plenty
high."
------------------------------

Takahashi's review by TemjinGold

"I know a lot of people complained that Sword Kenji seems impossible to
play on the higher difficulties. This is not true. With the right types of
items/stats, it is very possible. My Kenji has about 300 evade and even
big bosses can only hit him once in a while. I can walk into a crowd of
monsters my level and get hit 1 in 10-20 times. Heck, "Counterattack" skill
is useless because I don't get hit enough for it to go off...

Kenji's Kick is way better than I thought. I have Level 6 of it right now
and it says costs 10 and does 339 damage. I figured out why it costs way
more than 10 sometimes. It seems that the Kick will do 339 for every 10 you
can spend (until you run out of Zen or the enemy dies). Let me explain.
Because I have 54 Intelligence now (with items), I have 295 Zen. I was on
the story mission where you fight the 2 bosses at once. My sword does
90-300 or so. I tested by attacking once and it did less than 1 cm of damage
off the boss's lifebar. I had a full Zen bar and did a kick. The boss died
in 1 Kick and I lost like half my bar (down to 140 or so Zen). When I'm
fighting really weak enemies though (like Level 6 ones; I'm level 18 now),
the Kick will always only cost 10 because "1" Kick is enough to kill them.
Just from the numbers, Kick may even be better than his Level 25 skill
(Turnaround) since that one always takes all your Zen and Kick only takes
as much as needed plus can do much more damage
(right now, 339 * (Zen/10))."

*************************************************
  2.6. Cyber reality basics.
*************************************************

Cyber reality is accessible by Jessica only. She can get there with the
help of computer terminals. If you have visited the cyber reality, the
computer terminal becomes inactive (shut down by the system), and you can't
connect to cyber reality once more.

Inside cyber reality Jessica receives a cyber life gauge (normal life gauge
is replaced by it), which is not connected with the normal life gauge. The
cyber reality always resists: the cyber life gauge slowly decreases. If it
becomes 0, the game is over. When you exit cyber reality a cyber life gauge
is replaced by the normal life gauge.

In cyber reality Jessica can shoot energy balls. Enemy types:
1) Pyramid (I.C.E.): slowly follows your character and shoots; can be
destroyed.
2) Thorn balls: when they "see" your character they charge and
self-destruct.

In cyber reality your character can use and take information from special
terminals. There are 2 types of terminals.
  /\               ___ 
 /__\             |___|
 \  /  < Type 1.  \  /   < Type 2.
  \/               \/
With the help of Type 1 terminals you can: destroy some I.C.E.'s and some
Thorn balls on the current cyber reality map; increase information loading
speed from all terminals on the current cyber reality map. With the help of
Type 2 terminals you can find: control points; cyber weapon modify
properties; credits; a map of a current building and special story
information. It takes some time to copy the information. If you leave the
terminal, and the information hasn't been fully copied, then you must load
an information from it from the beginning. When the copying process is
completed, the special terminal vanishes.

Jessica can set mines, set watch weapons, recover robot guardian's energy.
These actions require control points.

*************************************************
  3.1. Story walkthrough.
*************************************************
********************************************
    3.1.1. The beginning.
********************************************

When you take control upon your character, you will found yourself in the
First city. It's map is shown below.
     __
 ___/8/                          1 - Mark.
/7  6 \__         ____           2 - Jason (Pilot).

           \_                \   8 - Mr. Jones (Employer).
            /                /   9 - Mr. Smith (Employer).
            \__     2       /

                  \___    /
                      \__/
When you take control over your character talk to Mark. You can ask him
about the city if you want. Before taking the first quest you can buy items
and equipment. First talk to Shakier. If you agree to take a credit from
him, you will give him 25% of your credit income after returning from
quests until you return him all the money. Take a credit if you want and
talk to Dee. You can buy and upgrade weapons. After that talk to Doc and
buy implants and Med kits from him. Note that further in the game Betty can
work instead of Doc.

You can take your first quest from Mr. Jones. Talk to him and he will hire
your character. When you are ready for a fight talk to Jason and agree his
conditions. He will take 25% of credits you get after returning from any
mission. You can negotiate 20% with him by offering 15%. He will say that
all he can go as low to is 20%. Take that offer. If you try 10% he will be
insulted and refuse, and you will be stuck with 25%.

********************************************
    3.1.2. Old bunker.
********************************************

Now lets return to our first quest.
Type: receiving item.
Place: Old bunker.
Employer: Mr. Jones.
Reward: 500 credits.
Description: Find a box with micros in the old bunker.

After landing make your way through the enemies and search the entrance of
the old bunker. When you enter bunker you'll find yourself ON THE FIRST
FLOOR. Make your way to the third floor and find the box with micros. After
that you may return to the city. You'll receive 2 prestige points.

In the city you can buy and sell equipment. When you are ready, talk to Mr.
Jones, take another quest, talk to Jason and fly to the mission.

********************************************
    3.1.3. Factory.
********************************************

Type: purge.
Place: Factory.
Employer: Mr. Jones.
Reward: 1000 credits.
Description: There are a lot of mutants in a factory. Kill their leader.
You can get an additional reward: 5 credits for each killed mutant.

After landing make the way through the enemies and search the entrance of
the factory. When you enter it make your way to the third floor and enter
the large room. The door will be closed and you face the boss.
-----------------------------------
BOSS: Giant mutant.
Strategy: He is easy. He slowly runs after the character to perform close
attacks. Sometimes he stops for a moment and summons smaller mutants
(close ranged). Just run from him and shoot. Try to kill smaller mutants
in order not to interfere. If you play as Victoria shoot smaller mutants
and cast Mental attack on the Giant mutant. Giant mutant's damage is not
high, so if you play as Takahashi Kenji, just equip katana and charge. If
you play as Johnson, equip flame-thrower. Flame-thrower is the best weapon
against Giant mutant. If you play as Jessica, activate the robot guardian.
-----------------------------------
After dealing with Giant mutant enter the Log section and click "To the
city" button. You'll get 2 prestige points.

In the city you can buy and sell equipment. From now on you can talk to
Mr. Smith and take additional quests. It is a good way of gaining exp. and
credits. When you are ready for the story quests, talk to Mr. Jones, take
another quest, talk to Jason and fly to the mission.

If you play as Johnson, Victoria or Takahashi, then skip part 3.1.4. But if
you play as Jessica you'll receive different mission, so skip parts 3.1.5,
3.1.6 and 3.1.7.

********************************************
    3.1.4. Oxygen bunker (Jessica only).
********************************************

Type: purge.
Place: Oxygen bunker.
Employer: Mr. Jones.
Reward: 5000 credits.
Description: Find restricted information about Oxygen corporation. 

After landing make your way through the enemies and search the entrance of
the bunker. When you enter it make your way to the second floor and search
for computer terminal. Enter cyber reality and search all special terminals
there. All terminals will contain secret information. Search the terminals
in cyborg reality until you see the movie. Jessica will be caught and
thrown to the prison.

But then Takahashi will come and rescue Jessica. After the movie you'll be
in a sever with Takahashi as an ally. Search the destination point. Enter
the roof and you'll see another movie. Takahashi will leave your party.
You'll receive 2 prestige points.

In the city you can buy and sell equipment. If you talk to Mr. Jones, he
will remark, that they are searching for the information about Jessica and
he will ask you to come later.

So, talk to Mr. Smith, take a quest you like, complete it and return to the
city.
 
********************************************
    3.1.5. Oxygen prison.
********************************************

Type: rescue.
Place: Oxygen prison.
Employer: Mr. Jones.
Reward: 2000 credits.
Description: Find and rescue Jessica. She must survive.

After landing make your way to the third floor and stop before the large
room. Prepare to the boss fight: equip long range weapon. When you are
ready enter the large room. The door will be closed and you face the boss.
-----------------------------------
BOSS: Cyber centaur x 2.
Strategy: They are much harder than the previous boss. First Cyber centaur
quickly runs to the character and performs close ranged attacks, and the
second Cyber centaur rapidly shoots at the character. Long ranged Cyber
centaur can perform rapid fire or shoot several bullets at ones (Like "S"-
weapon in Conrta). To my mind long ranged Cyber centaur must be the first
victim, because it is much easier to evade close ranged Cyber centaur's
attacks.

If you know how to beat them they become quite easy. Search the large room
for the group of boxes. The trick is that the long ranged Cyber centaur
can't shoot throw the boxes, but you can. So run around the boxes (very
close to them) and when the long ranged Cyber centaur is at the other side
of the boxes and he can't reach you stop for a moment and shoot him. Repeat
these actions until long ranged Cyber centaur will be dead. After this
event continue to perform quite the same tactics. Run around and very close
to the boxes. The close ranged Cyber centaur is much larger than your
character, so sometimes he falls behind. When the distance between your
character and the close ranged Cyber centaur increases, stop for a moment
and shoot. Repeat these actions until close ranged Cyber centaur will be
dead.

Strategy 2: It is useful with a long ranged weapon equipped. When you enter
the room, and when the door is closed, just shoot forward. You can kill
both Cyber centaurs without even seeing them. But I'm not sure that it
will always work. Just try: if you will fail - use the first strategy.
-----------------------------------
After beating the boss continue to the next room and talk to Jessica. She
joins you for a while. You'll see the movie and in the middle of it you
must choose, where to go: to the roof or to the sever. There are more
monsters in the sever than on the roof, but you can receive more exp in the
sever, so choose wisely.

After that the movie continues. When the movie ends you'll find yourself
at higher flour or in the sever with Jessica in your party. Don't forget
that Jessica must survive! Jessica uses a pistol as a weapon and will help
you a little in battles. Search the destination point. Enter the roof and
you'll see another movie. You'll receive 2 prestige points.

In the city Jessica will leave your party. You can buy and sell equipment.
If you talk to Mr. Jones, he will remark, that they are searching for the
information about Jessica and he will ask you to come later.

So, talk to Mr. Smith, take a quest you like, complete it and return to the
city.
------------------------------
NOTE: You can go to the Mr. Smith's quest and then quickly return back to
the city. It is no difference. But to my mind it is not a good thing to
loose your prestige points.
------------------------------

Read part 3.1.6. if you play as Victoria only! Else skip it!
Read part 3.1.7. if you play as Takahashi only! Else skip it!

********************************************
    3.1.6. Oxygen laboratory (Victoria only).
********************************************

If you play as Victoria, then to the left of Mr. Smith's position you'll
see Johnson. Talk to him. Some time ago Johnson nearly killed your

to take a revenge. Victoria will knock Johnson down with magic. You will
receive a quest.

********************************************

If you play as Takahashi, then after returning to the city after Mr.
Smith's random mission after completing part 3.1.5, to the North-East
you'll see Victoria. Talk to her. She'll tell Takahashi that he has no
aura, and he is a cyborg. Takahashi won't believe her.

Talk to Doc. He'll confirm that Takahashi is a cyborg and send him to the
technician (Jessica). Jessica is standing in front of Mr. Jones. Talk to
her. Takahashi will tell Jessica that he is a cyborg and he wants to know
who and why has created him. After some conversation Jessica will "sneak"
into his brains. Talk to her once again. Jessica will tell him that Dmitry
Zaginov is his creator, but because of an error or a breakage he can't
control Takahashi. Jessica also will delete a block, which helped Dmitry
Zaginov to control Takahashi. After receiving the information Takahashi
will get a quest.

Type: - .
Place: Oxygen laboratory.
Employer: - .
Reward: - .
Description: Find doctor and professor Dmitry Zaginov.

When you are ready, go to the mission. After landing make your way through
the enemies and search the entrance of the laboratory. When you enter
laboratory make your way to the third floor. Here you'll see Dmitry
Zaginov. First of all prepare for the boss fight and then talk to him.

Dmitry Zaginov will tell you that he have caught the real Takahashi and
made Cyber Takahashi instead of him to kill Takahashi's father. And Cyber
Takahashi has succeeded. So, from the beginning of the game you've played
as a Cyber Takahashi. Then Dmitry Zaginov will say that it is time to kill
Cyber Takahashi. Cyber Takahashi 2,5 will appear and attack.
-----------------------------------
BOSS: Cyber Takahashi 2,5 and Dmitry Zaginov.
Strategy: Dmitry Zaginov simply do nothing. He only runs throughout the
room. Cyber Takahashi 2,5 slashes the character with Katana. Well, simply
charge Cyber Takahashi 2,5 and use Med Kits. Don't forget to kill Dmitry
Zaginov.
-----------------------------------
When the boss is defeated you'll see a movie, where you must choose, to
kill real Takahashi or to free him. If you choose to free true Takahashi,
Cyber Takahashi will tell him everything he did before and say that a girl
named Jessica is his true savior. Then Cyber Takahashi will perform
Hara-kiri. True Takahashi will bow to Cyber Takahashi. Then you'll play
as a True Takahashi (Be careful, when your character appears in the city,
he has only 1 HP!). If you choose to kill True Takahashi, then you'll
continue playing as a Cyber Takahashi. 

********************************************
    3.1.8. Oxygen factory 1.

years ago). Then he took part in Oxygen laboratory assault. When you take
control over Johnson, he will be in Oxygen laboratory with a machine-gun as
a weapon and with an ally. Access to inventory and skills is denied. He 
and his allies are invincible in this map, so there will be no problem
killing your enemies. Make your way to the second floor and then search the
destination point. Talk to the girl (Victoria). You'll see a movie where
you must choose: to kill Victoria or not to kill her. Select any option you 
like. If you spare Victoria, Johnson will save her, and if you shoot her,

her, and he has identification problem. Jessica won't understand it. So,
find Takahashi near Shakier. Talk to Takahashi. He'll tell Jessica that he
is a cyborg and he wants to know who and why has created him. Jessica will
"sneak" into his brains. Then you'll see Jessica in cyber reality. When you
take control over her find 10 terminals and read their data. Do it as
quickly as possible if you don't want the game to over. After receiving
information Jessica will move into normal reality. Talk to Takahashi.

********************************************
    3.1.11. Oxygen research center.
********************************************

Type: purge.
Place: Secret laboratory.
Employer: Mr. Jones.
Reward: 10000 credits.
Description: Destroy Oxygen research center.

After landing make your way through the enemies and search the entrance of
the laboratory. When you enter laboratory make your way to the third floor.
Here prepare for the boss fight.
-----------------------------------
BOSS: Vormed.
Strategy: Vormed slowly runs to the character and attacks with the
flame-thrower. Be careful! He does a great amount of damage. Run away from
him and shoot him from a distance. He is not very high on HP. If you play
as Jessica, then activate the guardian.
-----------------------------------
After the boss fight you'll see a movie. Your characters will understand
that they are tricked, the mission is a trap, and Osaki's corporation wants
to deal with them with the help of Mr. Jones. Your team will run on legions
of monsters and your ally will die saving the life of your character. The
main character will be safe and receive 5 prestige points.

In the city, where Mr. Jones once stood, you'll see 2 remaining characters
(For example : if you play as Johnson or Victoria, you'll se Jessica and
Takahashi). Talk to them. The main character wants to take revenge upon
Osaki. The other characters refuse to help you. You'll receive the last
story quest.

If you talk to Jason, he will refuse to fly to Osaki's palace first, but
your character will persuade him to help. Before flying to the palace it
will be better for you to prepare. The monsters are very strong in Osaki's
palace. So, talk to Mr. Smith and complete several quests to gain level,
credits and equipment. One more thing is necessary: BUY THE NIGHT-VISION
DEVICE from Dee. You can also buy some med kits to use them while battling
the bosses. When you are ready, fly to Osaki's palace.

********************************************
    3.1.12. Osaki's palace.
********************************************

Type: purge.
Place: Osaki's palace.
Employer: -.
Reward: -.
Description: Take revenge for your friend. Find and kill Osaki.

Your character will find him/herself at Osaki's palace. Make your way
through the enemies to the fourth floor. After entering the fourth floor
prepare to the boss fight. You'll get into Mr. Jones' second trap. He will
block doors, shut down the light and send a demon on your character.
-----------------------------------
BOSS: Behemoth.
Strategy: When the fight begins, immediately use NIGHT-VISION DEVICE. 
Behemoth runs after your character and strike with a whip. His strikes do
not deal great damage, but they are quick and very accurate. It is very 
hard to evade his attacks. Run away and shoot from a long distance. Do not
stand to long after a shot. If your character has a pistol or a gun
equipped run close to the wall around the room. Choose 2 opposite corners,
and when your character is near any of them quickly turn to the Behemoth
and shoot then quickly run further around the room. Beware of 4 statues in
the room. They can impede your character's movement, and you can be an easy
target for Behemoth then. If you play as Jessica, then enable the guardian.
If you are playing as Takahashi, use Jump, Berserk, Rotation and Iron coat
secondary skills.
-----------------------------------
After beating the boss find Mr. Jones on the current floor and kill him. On
the fifth floor you'll face Osaki himself.
-----------------------------------
BOSS: Osaki.
Strategy: Osaki is not only a Samurai. He is a mage. He drains EP from your
character, attacks with Para-psychological strikes. But the worst things he
can do are casting Paralyze spell and becoming invinsible for some time.
When your character is paralyzed, Osaki runs to him/her and slashes him/her 
with Katana. Katana attacks deal the greatest damage. You can't evade magic 
drain and paralyzing attacks.

But there is a strategy that makes Osaki an easy boss to beat. Unequip all
close- and middle-ranged weapons (Katanas and flame-throwers). Equip long
ranged weapons. Osaki usually stands and shoots, so note where he has
stopped and run so far from him, that he won't be visible on the screen.
Then turn around and shoot at him. If Osaki casts Paralyze, it won't
bother you, because your character will be far away. While paralyzed
quickly click left mouse button to run away. If you are far away, Osaki
won't be able to reach your character in time. If you play as Victoria you
can quicken boss killing process. Cast Mind storm on him, but only if your
character is far away and run farther from Osaki immediately. When Osaki
won't be visible on the screen, turn around and shoot at him. If you are
playing as Jessica, then enable her guardian. If you are playing as
Takahashi, use Jump, Berserk, Rotation and Iron coat secondary skills.
-----------------------------------

When Osaki is defeated the game is finished. After the last movie and the
starring, the difficulty level will increase and you'll start the game from
the beginning with the same level, equipment and inventory. Your character
will also receive a rank. For example, when I beat the game for the first
time I've received "Mercenary" rank.

  3.3. Secret quests.
*************************************************

They are given by the NPC's in the city. Talk to the NPC and if you are
lucky you'll receive a quest. If a NPC wants to give a quest to you, he/
she is marked with red point on a city mini-map. You can see the quest list
below.

#1. Janie's quest.
If you talk to Janie you can see an additional dialog option. She'll tell
your character that she has a debt of 10000 credits to Shakier. Agree to
help. Then talk to shakier and buy Janie from him for 10000 credits. Then
talk to Janie and tell her that SHE IS FREE. From now on you can use
Janie's services for free. But that is not all!!! Talk to Dee. She will be
glad that you've helped Janie and will give you some rewards. From now on
the chance of item appearance will increase and you can see any dropped
item's properties! 
This quest is for the male characters only.

#2. Arthur's quest.
If you talk to Arthur he'll mention something about a medicine, named
"Arabian nights".
Now I don't know exactly what can you receive from this quest.

#3. Doc's quest.
If you talk to Doc he'll mention that Arthur visited him in a bad
condition. So, Doc helped him for free. Talk to Arthur. He'll ask if you
have a blanket. Give him 25 credits.
Now I don't know exactly what to do next and what can you receive from this
quest.

#4. Jason's quest.
If you talk to Jason, he will mention that he wants to buy a weapon from
Dee. Then he'll note that he don't need a weapon, he likes to communicate
with Dee. Tell Jason that he fell in love. He'll agree and ask, can you
help him. Agree to help. Then talk to Dee. Tell her about Jason and also
tell her, that you are helping Jason by your own will. Dee will ask, if
Jason can invite her to the supper. Agree to deliver a message. Now talk to
Jason and tell him that you succeeded.
After completing this quest, you can buy Dee's weapons with lower prices,
and from now on Jason will take only 5% of received money for his services!
This quest is accessible for all characters.

#5. Dee's quest.
If you talk to Dee she'll tell you that Shakier beats Janie. If you ask why,
she'll answer that Janie has a debt. Now talk to Janie, read and complete
#1 secret quest.
This quest is for the male characters only.

#6. Dee's quest 2.
If you talk to Dee she'll ask if you've heard about WDG. If you ask, what
it is, she'll answer that that was a strong organization, which struggled
with corporations, but it vanished. You can say that WDG worked
ineffectively and tell Dee your opinion about WDG crash.
Now I don't know exactly what to do next and what can you receive from this
quest.

quest).

some spareparts, which are situated in a bunker full of mutants. The level
consist of 3 floors and after retrieving them from the box he will give you
discount from his services. From now on you pay "only" 15%. This quest is
available only for male charecters and it replace different quest about
date with Dee, which is only available to female charecters - it even has
in the dialog with Jason phrase "... since you are also women...". In the
dialog Jason can mention the hard times with spareparts to his ship even
to female characters when you catch him speaking on the cell phone with 
his dealer and can even agree to help him, but there is no quest out of
this conversation.

#9. Dee's quest 3. Talk to Dee. She will ask you to do something for her
and not only for this mr. Smith. If you agree she will tell you to obtain
prototype of new Plasmarifle in a decent bunker. On the 3rd floor there is
a box we need to accomplish this quest with real Plasmarifle artefact with
"tracer bullets" which you can give to Dee for a discount from her wares
or keep to yourself with threat from her from now on sell only trash to
you for high-high prices.

*************************************************
  3.4. Battle strategy.
*************************************************

If you've chosen a long range weapon, don't forget that Dexterity is your
main primary skill, and if you've chosen close ranged weapons - so is
Strength.

Save, Save, Save: Use the “F-5” button as much as possible, especially
when you’re on a mission. You’ll be able to reload from your last save if
you run into trouble. Also, it is a good idea to remap the “quickload”
from F-6 to something else, so you don’t accidentally quickload from your
last save instead of saving where you already are.

Turn them Off: Turn off any programs that run regular updates while you are
playing RA, or you might find yourself back at the desktop because some
other program wanted to check for updates. Having a lot of other programs
running in the background can also hurt general game performance as well.

Redo Early Mission Levels: You can gain valuable experience and loot, by
redoing some of the mission levels before going on. Use the “M” option to
go back to the city, replenish, upgrade, resupply, and then go back. Your
reputation won’t suffer as much as you think, and your character will be
stronger for the experience.

Be Loot Savvy: Early on, your loot won’t be worth much, so keep what you
can use and sell the rest. Once you get through the first few missions,
some loot will be worth more than others. My “rule of thumb” is to keep
only that which is worth more than 1,000 credits and dump the rest. Sell
off what you can’t use to enhance what you can. 

Take the Extra Missions: Don’t be in too much of a hurry to take on only
the plot missions. You need the extra missions provided by Mr. Smith to
help enhance your levels, skills, weapons, bio/cyberware, and of course,
your credits. If you are in too much of a rush to take only the plot
missions, you’ll be fighting enemies that are too hard for you to kill. 

Mob Rules: Your enemies will try to swarm and overwhelm you whenever they
get the chance. Avoid allowing them to surround and trap you. Freedom of
movement is almost always your best defense.

Work the Tight Corners: There are many situations in which you can maneuver
yourself into a corner, or around a doorway, so that your enemies cannot
attack you all at once. Some of them will even get “stuck” while you blast
away at them (this is especially useful when playing Johnson equipped with
a flamethrower, which can shoot through walls). 

Timing is Everything: Every weapon in the game has a base attack speed
(even Takashi’s sword). Pay attention to the character, the weapon they are
wielding, and how much time it takes before you can attack again, or you’ll
end up wishing you had. Enhancements to your attack speed are always a
bonus.
 
Threat Assessment: In battle, it is crucial that you determine which enemies
deal the most damage to you, and which are the most difficult to kill. Try
to concentrate your fire on the most immediate threats before taking out
the annoying ones.

Be Methodical: Just because you find the way to the next level in a mission
doesn’t mean you shouldn’t clear out every area of level you’re on. In your
hurry to advance the mission, you may be leaving behind valuable loot and
experience. 

Go back to Town: There are times when it is necessary to go back to town,
even when you haven’t completed a mission, such as: restocking on medkits
and combat drugs, selling off excess gear to enhance your bio/cyberware and
weapons, and freeing up valuable inventory space. But the rank will
decrease. Remember that.

If you've chosen long ranged weapons, note that their hit range is far 
beyond the screen, so if you are not in a hurry, shoot forward as often as
possible. You'll hit far away enemies or barrels, which can detonate and
destroy nearby monsters.

If there are a lot of close-ranged monsters charging you quickly run out to
the room, where are no monsters, turn around and rapidly shoot at the 
doorway. Only one monster can move through the door at the same time, and 
when an enemy as walking through the door it slows him for a moment. If you
know this you can effectively shoot the group of monsters down.

If your ally is Victoria she always casts Paralyze spell. While your
character is running Victoria is following you. While your character is
standing Victoria is paralyzing nearby enemies. So, for effective
cooperation move as slowly as possible.

If your ally is Johnson he will rapidly shoot from a plasma gun. It is very
easy to cooperate with him - just shoot all the enemies down. But note,
that plasma guns can't shoot throw box groups and walls.

If your ally is Takahashi he will charge and slash enemies with his Katana.
He can't run over the screen, so if he charges, it is better to follow him,
otherwise he can be hited by the enemies' long ranged attacks.

If you play with Jessica as an ally, she shoots enemies with the pistol and
tries to hold by your character. Her robot guardian also shoots the
enemies. If you play with Jessica as an ally just play as always: she can
stand up for herself.

******************************************************
6. Weapon list.
******************************************************

Each weapon, produced by a corporation has 1 - 5 random properties, which
raise character's stats.

#1. Flame-thrower.
Energy: 100.
Basic damage: 120 per second.
Upgrade damage bonus: 50 per upgrade level.
Attack rate: uninterrupted.
Range: middle ranged.
Description: Surely, the best weapon in the game! The flame has a good hit
square and a half screen length. You also can "rotate" a flame! The damage
is great! When the enemy's life is 20 - 25% they receive "confuse" and
"burn" statuses! "Burn" status kills an enemy when some time passes, and
"confuse" status makes an enemy to run away. Flame-thrower can also burn
through the walls! Disadvantage - limited fuel. But it "regenerates", so
it will be OK, if you not always charge.

Random properties: additional minimum and/or maximum damage; additional
damage against cyborgs/living beings; armor break property (decreases
enemies' armor); easy-modified; increased energy recovery rate. 

#2. Machine-gun.
Basic damage: 10 - 20.
Upgrade damage bonus: 6 per upgrade level.
Attack rate: very fast.
Range: long ranged.
Description: To my mind, the second best weapon in the game. The fire is
rapid. But the main advantage is a high chance of hit, after which the
enemy must retaliate.

Random properties: additional minimum and/or maximum damage; increased
attack speed; additional damage against cyborgs/living beings; increased
attack; armor break property (decreases enemies' armor); chance of
poisoning the opponent; easy-modified.

#3. Pistol.
Basic damage: 20 - 30.
Upgrade damage bonus: 10 per upgrade level.
Attack rate: average.
Range: long ranged.
Description: Ineffective weapon, I think. Even with 2 pistols equipped
you'll run away from the enemies many times. If you want to equip them,
increase attack speed as soon as possible.

Random properties: additional minimum and/or maximum damage; increased
attack speed; additional damage against cyborgs/living beings; increased
attack; armor break property (decreases enemies' armor); chance of
poisoning the opponent; easy-modified.

#4. Plasma-gun.
Basic damage: 10 - 30.
Upgrade damage bonus: 8 per upgrade level.
Attack rate: fast.
Range: long ranged.
Description: Maybe it has a high attack rate and good damage, but it has
more disadvantages then advantages. The bullets speed is slow, and it can't
shoot through walls and "triple boxes".

Random properties: additional minimum and/or maximum damage; increased
attack speed; additional damage against cyborgs/living beings; increased
attack; armor break property (decreases enemies' armor); chance of
poisoning the opponent; easy-modified.

#5. Shotgun.
Basic damage: 5 - 35.
Upgrade damage bonus: 8 per upgrade level.
Attack rate: slow.
Range: long ranged.
Description: A good weapon. It shoots four bullets at once (like "s"-weapon 
in Contra). But it has a slow attack rate.

Random properties: additional minimum and/or maximum damage; increased
attack speed; additional damage against cyborgs/living beings; increased
attack; armor break property (decreases enemies' armor); chance of
poisoning the opponent; easy-modified.

#6. Katana.
Basic damage: 45 - 75.
Upgrade damage bonus: 25 per upgrade level.
Attack rate: average.
Range: close ranged.
Description: Deals good damage, but it is harder to evade enemy attacks in
close combat, and it is harder to hit an enemy several times in succession
in close combat. Can't crush boxes.

Random properties: additional minimum and/or maximum damage; increased
attack speed; additional damage against cyborgs/living beings; increased
attack; armor break property (decreases enemies' armor); chance of
poisoning the opponent; easy-modified.

#7. Cyber claws.
Basic damage: 25 - 50.
Upgrade damage bonus: 15 per upgrade level.
Attack rate: fast.
Range: close ranged.
Description: Deals good damage, but it is harder to evade enemy attacks in
close combat, and it is harder to hit an enemy several times in succession
in close combat. Can't crush boxes.

Random properties: additional minimum and/or maximum damage; increased
attack speed; additional damage against cyborgs/living beings; increased
attack; armor break property (decreases enemies' armor); chance of

NOTE: when a weapon has a "quick" ammunition attribute, enemy and a
character are thrown back (away from each other) if the enemy or box or
barrel is damaged. It is a very useful attribute, because it will be harder
for the enemy to reach your character. But don't stand near the walls! It
can slower the attack speed when the weapon with a "quick" ammunition
attribute is equipped.

******************************************************

#1. "Burn".
The aim burns in flames. The aim receives damage until death. "Burn" status
can't be cured. This status can be inflicted by a flame thrower.

#2. "Confuse".
The aim runs away and hide in a corner, it can't attack. But the aim can
perform a "save throw" against "confuse" status. If a "save thow" has
succeeded, the aim can attack, but can't move. I don't know if an aim can
recover from this status, because during my playing all confused enemies
were killed by "burn" status. "Confuse" status can be inflicted by a flame
thrower.

#3. "Imbalanced".
The aim suffers and can't do anything for a short period of time. The aim
can recover from this status. There are some skills, which can quicken the
recovery from "Imbalanced" status. Each strike has a chance to inflict this
status.

#4. "Paralyse".
The aim can't do anything for some time (Like "Stop" in Final Fantasy). The 
aim can recover from this status. A Paralyse spell can inflict "Paralyse"
status.

#5. "Poison".
The aim suffers additional damage. The aim quickly recovers, but the damage
is great. Boost Toxic resistance to receive less damage from a "poison"
status. This status can be inflicted with poisoned weapons. Poison can't
kill the target: it can decrease HP to 1.

******************************************************
12. Cheats and secrets.
******************************************************

#1. "Reloading" the game.

When you've saved your game, you can anytime (when not playing Restricted
Area) copy the save, connected to the character to another directory. Then
you can copy it back, and "reload" the game this way. This "trick" can help
you to avoid game glitches.

#2. Duplicate items trick by Moogheart.

You need 2 characters for this.
The Trick is to place the good / valuable items in the "Shared Storage".
First copy the 2 save folders to a safe place, so you can use them later if 
something should go wrong.

Now, lets say: Character 1 has a good item that you wish to duplicate,
place the item in the "Shared Storage", exit and save. 
Load character 2 and get that item from the "Shared Storage", place it 
wherever you like except in the "Shared Storage", then exit and save.
In the menu where you load characters, delete Character 1. Then exit the
whole game.

Find the folders you saved, and copy the Character 1 folder and then paste
it back into the "original" save folder on your drive.
When you now load that character, the item is still in that characters
inventory. (right before you put it in the shared storage), you can now
repeat the process.

#3. "Extreme reloading" by TemjinGold.

if you die in Realistic, you have a few seconds to quickload before the
game takes you to the menu and wipes your files. So, as long as you
quicksave often, you can't lose your character in Realistic!

#4. "Money Maker" by Reinhart_lightmourn.

Money Maker (+15% Faster Earnings, -30% Reduced Requirements, +300%
Earnings). First of all, fill ALL available cargo space in Jason's cargo
bay. If you can, only place high price items in the cargo. After filling
it, save and quit to Windows. Brwose your game character's folder. Notice
theres a file '.item' in it. Copy it to another
directory. Play the game. Sell everything in your cargo. Save and quit to
windows. Copy back the "ITM"-files and reload the game. Your empty cargo
now fills with stuff you just sold. Repeat the process.

#5. "Free Active Skill" by Reinhart_lightmourn.

Raises an active skill to level 1. Assign that skill to right mouse button
or middle button. Go see Doc and remove that skill completely from your
skill tree. The level in your skill tree is now zero, but you can still
use it via right mouse or middle mouse button. But once you assign another
skill to that button, your free skill will be gone too. Just repeat above
process to get it again.

#6. A more efficient version of the money maker/item duplication trick.

1. Put the stuff you want more of into Jason's cargo hold.  
2. Quit Restricted Area, and go to your save game where the .itm file is.
3. Set the file to read-only by right clicking on the file and choosing
Properties.
4. Go back into the game.  

You can now take everything out of the cargo hold, and when you ask Jason
to
see the cargo hold again, everything will still be there!  And you can do
this an infinite number of times without having to constantly quit the
game
and futz around with the files.  Keep in mind that if you want to put
anything new into the hold, you MUST disable the read-only flag, or
anything you put in there will be gone.


******************************************************
13. Frequently asked questions.
******************************************************

#1. Question:
Some of Mr. Smith's quests can't be completed. What should I do?

Answer:
Yes, 5 - 10% of Mr. Smith's quest are incompletable (They have an empty
destination point). Maybe patches can solve this problem, but I can tell
you 2 ways of solving this problem without any patches.

First way (the best). You want to get and complete Mr. Smith's quest.
DON'T TAKE A MISSION YET! Stand near him, save and exit game. Then copy
your save to another place. Now you can take a mission from Mr. Smith, and
if a destination point is empty, save and exit, and copy the directory
back. So you can "reload the game" and avoid the quest.

Second way (If you don't want OR FORGOT to use a first way, and a mission
has an empty destination point). 5 - 10% is a small amount, so you can do
the following. You are in a building on a quest and you understand that a
destination point is empty. Kill all the monsters you can to receive
maximum exp. here, take the best items you can here (to sell it later or
equip), enter the log section (it is one of the icons in the lower right of
the screen, second from the right, if I'm not mistaken), select a "bad"
quest you can't complete in the log section and press "To the city" button.
You'll loose some prestige points, but gain exp., money and equipment.

#2. Question: 
Can you name some excellent weapons?

Answer:
Here they are:
Character | Weapon
__________________________________
Johnson   | "Volcano" (flame-thrower artifact).
Victoria  | "Hammer" (machine-gun artifact).
Jessica   | "Hammer" (machine-gun artifact).

#3. Question: 
How can I restore Jessica guardian's energy?

Answer:
There are 3 ways to do it:
- Each time your character returns to the city from a mission, robot
guardian's energy restores.
- Jessica has "Robot's interface" active secondary skill, which can restore
guardian's energy in exchange on the control points. You can receive
control points in cyber reality by reading the information from type 2
terminal (read section 2.6 to learn more about terminals).
- When Jessica reaches level 25, you can level up "Robot's recovery"
secondary skill, which enables guardian's energy restoration.

#4. Question:
I can't escape the "Oxigen factory 2" because of explosion. What should I
do?

Answer:
Kill all the enemies in the factory first. You can also get rid of obstacles:
destroy all boxes and barrels in a factory you can, move away boxes, which
can't be destroyed but can be moved from the future escape way. Before
setting the explosives choose the shortest future route between 4 columns.
The first column must be the farthest to the floor exit. The last (fourth)
column must be the nearest to the floor exit. Then QUICKLY SET ALL 4
EXPLOSIVES AND RUN DOWN THROUGH ALL THE FLOORS OUT OF THE FACTORY. You'll
have 2 minutes after setting the first explosive to run away.
