     A comprehensive list and data chart of all vehicles in AFO.  Your ride is
an important choice.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hov Craft
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Final Rank:    Excellent

Fun Score:     Excellent
Armor Rank:    Poor
Speed Rank:    Excellent

Strong Points: Very fast and mobile, you can swerve around most enemies before
               they get a chance to hit you.
Weak Points:   It offers little protection, it's very easily killed in two or
               three hits.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2L Walker
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Final Rank:    Average

Fun Score:     Average
Armor Rank:    Average
Speed Rank:    Average

Strong Points: It's got balance, which is sometimes useful for straight-on
               attacks.  It has more uses than the Hov Craft.
Weak Points:   It's got balance and nothing particularly great.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SP Walker
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Final Rank:    Poor

Fun Score:     Poor
Armor Rank:    Excellent
Speed Rank:    Poor

Strong Points: Lots of armor, this thing can take the most hits of any alien.
Weak Points:   Extremely slow, the Hov Craft and 2L Walker are much better
               choices.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MK2 Merkava

Final Rank:    Average

Fun Score:     Average
Armor Rank:    Poor

Fun Score:     Average
Armor Rank:    Average
Speed Rank:    Average

Strong Points: It offers a little bit of everything.
Weak Points:   Tanks can't have that kind of armor, they need stronger armor to
               make up for their lack of speed.  The MK2 Merkava is a much
               wiser choice, as is the M109-A2.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
M109-A2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Final Rank:    Average

Fun Score:     Excellent
Armor Rank:    Excellent

     Some good strategies.  If you need any more or have any to submit, please
e-mail me.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Alien Hov Craft in Tokyo
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the real arena for Hov Crafts to shine.  When you respawn, or start out
even, head right for the Army's respawn zone, which is located near the big
Pagoda.  Once inside, your job is to kill as many tanks as possible without
letting them out. 

This sounds fairly difficult, but in reality it isn't.  The
Hov Craft can maneuver around the newly respawned tanks and really do some
major damage.  The key to this is getting "combos".

You must get a kill every few seconds, followed by another kill, so you can
get enough med kits and possibly subweapons.  To start, drive behind the
respawning tank.  Blast it a few times, driving it into the wall.  Drive
yourself at it, continuing your fire.

He'll deal some damage to you, but you will get his health.  Spin
around, finish off the tanks in the other corner (by now your allies should
have also infiltrated the respawn zone).  You can keep going between respawned
tanks and already weakened tanks for lots of health.  As long as you do not
let the tanks leave the area, you should rack in lots of kills.

     There is only one known cheat so far, and I have no friggin idea on how
we came to figure it out.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Foggy Cheat Mode
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When online, make a game named FOGFOGFOG and then enter it.  Your game will be
all foggy, which is very cool.  Sometimes you cannot make a FOGFOGFOG game,
however, because someone else is trying the code.  Only one game named
FOGFOGFOG may exist at a time.  You can either wait for that game to end, or
you can join it.

     Some good troubleshooting.  Some help sections may need to be worked on, I
will get to that as soon as possible.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Saving Issues
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The game automatically saves the game for you after each session of battle.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Voice Chat Issues
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you cannot hear the other people talking to you, try turning down the
other sound options (in the Options Menu) to the farthest left.  Turn the 
Voice Chat option to the right, all the way.  That usually fixes the problem.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Controller Issues
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your default controller is listed below.  I recomend switching "B" to "X" and
vice versa, because "X" seems to be a more natural shooting button.  Just a
recomendation.

Start Button: Bring up the Options Menu, giving you the option to quit if you
              would like.  It doesn't pause you online!
Analog Stick: Use for movement.  It works well in the 3-D format of the game.
              Combined with L or R, you can strafe left or right, respectively.
A Button:     Shoots your main vehichle's weapon.  You can't hold it down for
              extremely fast shooting.
B Button:     Your extra weapon button, press it to fire your subweapon.  Some
              weapons fire faster than others.
X Button:     Change the camera angle from close to far, far to close.
Y Button:     Press it once to chat with your allies (useful to set up tactics
              or strategies).  Press it twice to tell the entire game what you
              want to say.  Good for trash talk!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How To Get Online
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Many people will have one hell of a time getting online with Alien Front
Online.  There are lots of steps to take before you can get online.
Before you even attempt, check this checklist.

  Checklist of Things You Must Have:
 Modem
  --basically, all DreamCasts come with one built in.  If you bought your
    DreamCast from a real store (not FuncoLand, your neighbor, or Vinny Two
    Shoes), this will be no problem.  Don't attempt to toy with your modem--
    EVER!
 All Proper Phone Accessories
  --lines, jacks, and everything hooked up correctly.
 Alien Front Online Disc
  --duh.
 NFL2k1 or Sega WebBrowser
  --I prefer NFL2k1, it's much easier.  The WebBrower is terrible, but it will
    get the job done.  Enter your ISP information (user name, password, phone
    number, etc).  If you can't get it working, e-mail me.
  --REMEMBER: You can't use the BroadBand Adaptor.. at all.  Period.
  --REMEMBER: You can get long distance bills if you dial long distance.
  --REMEMBER: No one endorses what is said or done online.  There is no filter
    for bad language.
 A working, DreamCast ISP (preferably SegaNet)
  --AOL doesn't work (it's not a real ISP, anyway).
  --BroadBand Adaptors don't work.
  --Most of the free DreamCast Internet Sites don't work.  If you're using
    Bluelight, the MSN Uni, or anything else that isn't yours or is FREE in
    any way.. may not work.
  --SegaNet and Microsoft Network (MSN) are good bets.
 Patience
  --Seriously, it can take a long time to set this up.
  --The servers are horrible.. you WILL get disconnected .. ALOT!

Once you've got all that, put the ISP information into the WebBrowser or
NFL2k1.  Put AFO back in the DreamCast, choose Online.  Dial the number, and
you are off to AFO Online Land, the place of dreams and fairy tales....

Once Online, you must Agree to the terms they flash.  Then, choose what lobby
you want to be in.  If you're in the Army Lobby, you will be an Army player..
and opposite is also true.

Now that you're in the Lobby you want to be in, pick an open game.  It will
look something like this:

............................
Blues Brothers    5/6   DM
Hell is L0se      2/4   DM
IGN OWNZ YOU      8/8   FORT
USA !             1/2   DM
Blame Canada      6/6   DM
Spy vs Spy        1/4   FLAG
All Your Fort     7/8   FORT
www.timefall.com    8/8   DM
Snoopy            4/5   DM
............................

Basically, the team name (Blues Brothers, Hell is L0se, etc) is first.  This
really doesn't matter at all.  Next, comes the amount of players.  X/Y, where
X is the number of people playing, and Y is the maximum number of people
allowed in.  The more people, the more intense the battles (usually more fun).
The games with less people tend to not freeze as much and are much slower, and
tend to be ALOT more boring.  The final word is the type of game the match is.
DM    is an abreviation for Death Match (a free for all).
FORT  stands for FORTRESS, a game where one team guards their home base.
FLAG  is a game of capture-the-flag.. you know how it works.
There are more games, you can choose the DOWN ARROW to choose them.

Other choices include Creating Your Own Game and Randomly Joing A Game.

It's very straight forward to use those options.

The worse thing you can do in AFO is hide the entire match, and wait for
enemies to find you, and then, humorously, kill you.  Waiting for enemies to
attack is very useless, because you won't ever get more than ten kills!  If you
want to play cowardly and slowly, you will lose interest in the game very
easily, and very quickly.

Staring At The Sun
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sometimes you just have to take damage to deal damage.  If you're trying to
attack two enemies, you'll have to stare at the blazing shots of the enemies
while concentrating on ONE ENEMY.  After (if) you kill one, you'll get the
health and then be able to take the other enemy on in a one-on-on.  Never try
to take two tanks down by shooting at them both.

How good are you online?  Sure in-game battles determine it all, but when the
time comes to tally scores, you will be represented by a symbol, which is
determined by your ranking.  How good are you?  Props to "satan" for some of

     This is a guide to the tactics missions.  It is not complete, if you want
to help e-mail me.  These are the Alien missions currently.


---------
Mission 1
---------
Start by picking the fastest Alien vehicle, the Hov Craft.  It will be very
for newbies who are just getting into the game, and it will make things quite
simple for 30-starred players.

Red dots on the radar alert you to whether or not there are any targets in
the current area.  You'll need to learn to use the radar sometime, might as
well be now.

Speed ahead, hit the first set of targets.  Keep going, you'll see some blue
liquids.. hit those targets, too.  Continue around, hit the targets on the blue
liquids, and then keep going forward.  You'll have 26 targets destroyed if you
followed this correctly.

More targets are ahead, follow them.  You'll destroy a handful of targets at
and around the mountain, bringing your total to 41.

Look ahead, you'll see more.. you'll have 50 scored after you run these over.

Find a light source ahead, and turn into the mountains, collecting the final
few targets.  You're done Mission 1!


---------
Mission 2
---------
In this mission, you'll have three minutes to eliminate all of the targets.

Again, pick the Hov Craft..

Drive forward, shoot the targets.  It's pretty simple.

You'll be near the blue liquid, so be sure to take out any targets you see
next.  The vision is slightly blurred, but it's not bad.

Head forward, taking out all of the targets.  Next, look for an opening in 
the mountains.  Drive in, do your business, drive out.

There's some targets far away, drive up and remove them.

You'll find some more targets in the openings from the mountains.  Just keep an
eye on the radar and you'll easily complete this.  There's no way you need
three minutes, especially when using the Hov Craft.
