1)  Introduction
----------------
This game was released in Japan on July 22, 2000 for sale at 6,800 yen.  
Included in the game is a catalog of the units of the game and their history.

This is the newest version of Sega's war simulation series Advanced World War,
actually one of Sega's longest running series.  An early version existed on the 
Mega Drive, and was never released.  Two Sega Saturn versions were released: 
Advanced World War in Japan and Iron Storm in America and Europe.  This is the 
latest version for the Dreamcast.  It is also the most detailed.  However, Sega
is working on a new version:  Advanced World War 2001, due out in Japan in 
April 2001.

This is a turn-based strategy game taking place during World War 2.  You can 
control armies from many nations, but only the German army in the campaign 
mode.  There are over a thousand different units in the game and it is 
incredibly detailed.  The game accounts for terrain, time of day and even 
weather.


2)  Frequently Asked Questions
------------------------------
Q) Is the game import-friendly?
A) Absolutely not!  There is a ton of Kanji and it is not expected to be 
playable for any audience outside of Japan.  I don't believe that there are 
any plans to translate it either.

Q) Can I play it without much knowledge of Japanese?
A) Well, it IS possible.  I am trying to make this FAQ for the average user 
that can't read a lot of Kanji.  I hope that you can match the symbols that I 
write here to those in the game.  But, after you get used to it, not much 
changes in the game, so you just have to get your feet wet.  If you are a fan 
of turn-based strategy games, you really should give it a try, it is quite 
detailed and interesting.


3)  How to play
---------------
This is a strategy game.  Your basic objective is to destroy the enemies on 
screen.  However, you gain funds through the occupation of towns and cities, 
so that is also part of your goal in securing victory.  You can control
ground, naval and aerial units in your battles.

3.1)  Controls:
---------------
Joystick moves
L trigger selects your base
R trigger cycles through your troops
Y ???
B cancel / go back
X option screen / map (press twice)
A selects unit / brings up command menu / info
Start ends player's turn
When selecting your base, left menu builds new units right menu deploys old
units (campaign mode)

3.2)  At the main menu:
-----------------------
Campaign (1 player only)
 - This is the start of campaign mode where you control your forces in a number 
of connected battles in a long-term campaign.  Your troops gain experience from 
battles here and can be upgraded to better units once you've earned enough 
experience.  You can only control the German forces here.  Everyone else is 
your enemy.  The Campaign mode starts out with a historical account of the 
circumstances leading up to the start of the war.  Once you have completed a
battle, you may save it and play it as a scenario.  This costs 27 blocks of 
memory.

Continue (1 player only)
 - This is to continue your campaign from campaign mode.

Scenario (1-8 players)
 - This mode is simply a one-shot battle on a single map.  There are 58 
Scenarios to choose from and you can download more from the internet under 
Internet mode.  Before starting the map, you can change the settings or options 
for the battle.  You can also choose the number of player controlled countries 
in the game. 

Internet
 - Under this menu, you can access the internet (provided that you can connect 
to the internet with the Dreamcast Passport).  From here you can do a variety 
of things like go to the Advanced World War Home page, download new scenarios, 
etc.

Load Game
 - Load a game

Library
 - Here you can look at all of the information that you've accumulated on your 
forces.


4)  Game Rules
--------------
4.1)  Time
 - Each Turn phase is two hours long.  Therefore, it takes twelve turns to 
complete an entire day.  Each player has a phase in every turn.  Once all of 
the player's phases are completed, the turn is over.

4.2)  Hexes and Facing
 - The map is divided into hexes, six-sided squares.  Only one unit may occupy 
a hex at any time.  Movement occurs from hex to hex.  When you move your units, 
you can choose the unit's facing.  A unit has more armor in the way that it 
faces.  It is weaker when attacked from behind.  You can also rotate a unit to 
change the way that it faces without moving it outside of the hex that it is 
already in.  Most units cannot attack back when attacked from behind???

4.3)  Zones of Control (ZOC)
 - Every unit that you control has a Zone of Control (ZOC) that encompasses 
the area in the hexes around it.  When you move your unit is moving, it does 
not have a ZOC.  The ZOC only appears when you unit is stationary.  

4.4)  Fog of War
 - Fog of War makes it so that you cannot see enemies outside of your ZOC.  
It makes the game more difficult.  This effect can be set on or off under the 
in-game options menu.

4.5)  Altitude Effects
 - If you are less than, shadow give?
 - Altitude has an effect on indirect attacks.  The following formula is used:
   (Enemy unit's altitude - 5) x 2 = Hit percentage
 - If your altitude is higher, then ZOC effect can't effect.
 - submarines can go to -1 altitude when diving

4.6)  Weather
 - Weather has a drastic influence on the battle.  It affects the game in 
different ways.  Here are the results:

What's next?!?
--  As you can see, this FAQ is still incomplete.  But, I thought that I 
would send it out to get any advice on what anybody needs to be done for this 
game.  I will probably start with some basics on rules and how to play the 
game.  First, I've had to learn it myself and start translating the Kanji and 
the screens and menus.  More later...

Thanks to Sega and Systemsoft for putting a lot of work into this game!
