Credits: +++++++++++ Thanks to JL Lee for an excellent walkthrough on the Earth Federation scenario and inspiring me to create one for the Zeon scenario. Please read the other faqs posted by Kain, DuoMaxwell, and DGreen on this amazing game at GameFaqs. Please note that many of the translated names, units and pilots, have come from DGreen's faq to keep some consistency. Also visit the web site www.boren.org/james/gundam.html, there you can find a menu guide complete with scans of all the entries, even explains all the items on the unit and pilot screens as well. Current location of this walkthrough: 3.5 inch floppy disk, soon to be found on GameFaqs.com. These should be the only places I can find this document, unless contacted about placing it somewhere else. ++++++++++++++++ 3. Introduction: ++++++++++++++++ Giren's Greed is a game where the entire events of the One Year War, and beyond to Zeta, are laid out for the player to toy with as they see fit. Don't like the Federation taking a big hit with Operation Stardust, stop it. Don't like Ranba Rall dying against the Gundam and Whitebase, don't send him. The game allows the player to construct a variety of what-if scenarios using different points in the storyline as a starting place. Unfortunately, the game can follow the storyline quite closely, which for Zeon spells a shortend game. I won't spoil the story at this point in the guide; that comes later. This guide will provide you with the branches of the plot and various side events so that you'll be able to craft the story the way you want it to be. Zeon will be led to victory the way it should have been. Zieg Zeon! Note: This is a work in progress. While I've tried to record the events as they have happened in the game, it is difficult to determine the exact cause of some events due to the number that were occurring in the game at that time. Therefore, this guide should be a very good record of how the game goes for the choices listed, but if it doesn't, then a more complex interaction of events is going on then what I have been able to figure out, and things should still happen, just at a different point in time. ++++++++++++++++++ Table of Contents: ++++++++++++++++++ 1.

Zeon characters ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 4. One Year War (OYW) walkthrough: ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ The biggest problem with trying to lay out the events of the Zeon campaign is that many of them are based solely on how far you have progressed in the war. The story doesn't get rolling until you have conquered Kilimonjaro (Africa), or Hawaii (if you develope subs early) so you might not see much story until you've gotten a pretty good grip on Earth. There appear to be basically 5 parts to the main story, progressing in the following order: Char inflitration/Garma's death | Ranba Ral's Whitebase assault | Federation counterattack at Odessa | Mad Angler/Hunting Whitebase | Federation attack at Solomn/Solar Ray finale *Side 7/V Project Infiltration: Kilamonjaro conquered (control >7 strategy points) | YES(1) | Side 7 infiltration(2) | 3 Turns | Report on Side 7 ______________|______________ | | YES(3) NO | | 2 Turns 2 Turns | | Char's update(4) Dozul's update(5) | | 1 Turn 1 Turn | | Update(6) Garma's update | | 3 Turns 3 Turns | | Garma's death Garma attacks(9) | | 1 Turn | | | Zabi's mourn(7) | | | 1 Turn | _______|_______ | | | | YES(8) NO 3 Turns | | | 1 Turn 1 Turn Garma returns(10) |_______________|_____________________| __________| | | Ranba's All-Stars ?? _________|______________ | | YES(11) NO(no apparent) | | (effect) 2 Turns | | 4 Turns Ranba update | _________|________ | | | | 1 Turn | | | | | Ranba's request(12) | | ________|________ 3 Turns | | | | | No YES(14) | | | | | | 2 Turns 2 Turns | | | |_________| | Ranba reports(13) | | | Dozul's update(15) | 1 Turn | | | 1 Turn | |______________________|____________________| | V Project report _________________ ______|______________________ | | | | 2 Turns 1 Turn | | | | Kishiria's request "Lt."'s request(16) 5 Turns(17) ________|________ | | | | YES(18) NO | | | | 2 Turns | | | 3 Turns | "Lt"'s Alert(19) | | | | | 1 Turn | |________|_________________| | Ma Kube's plan _______|_______ | | YES(20) NO |_______________| | 1 Turn | Report on nuke _____|_____ | | YES NO(21) |___________| | 1 Turn | Kishiria's subs ______|______ | | YES(22) NO | 2 Turns | Char reports | 1 Turn | 2nd Char report | 1 Turn | 3rd Char report _____|_____ | | YES(23) NO | 2 Turns | Char updates(24) | ??

Events Post-OYW: +++++++++++++++++++ Not there yet, but soon. Hopefully, there are events like the stealing of the GP-02A and Operation Stardust from 0083, now that would be cool. ++++++++++++++++++++ 7. Zeon tech review: ++++++++++++++++++++ Here-in resides a list of Zeon's military might, broken down by the tech level required to gain the blueprints for it. This may not be completely accurate, as I am assuming that each area of technology is researched at the same rate, but a good rule of thumb for units is that the level of general tech be the same as the MS or MA level for the respective unit. Two things of note: 1. I will be trying to give the connections between units. For example once you research the Gouf B.A, you get several new blueprints, like the Gouf B.B (variant 2) without having to increase the tech level. 2. Pilot custom units are a good part of Zeon's military, if the pilot is anybody, then they probably have at least one custom unit. Some, well many, pilots get killed during the course of the OYW, so you won't be able to get the blueprints for their unit if they are dead. As long as the pilot is listed on the pilot list, whether they are on a story mission, out fighting, or just sitting around you can get their custom unit. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Level "0": (Initial Blueprints) +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 82.

Zeon Characters: +++++++++++++++++++ These are the men and women that can make or break a battle for you. Some of these people are nothing more than warm bodies (Denim, Gene, Slender come to mind), but they usually add a little more punch to the units they're piloting. I will try to cover how you get people that you don't start with, there aren't many, but this will be by no means complete. I won't start filling in this section until I beat the Zeon side once, so as to fill in the pilot gallery. Then I'll try to give you a little insight as to who are the duds, and who are the studs.
