busy to make a preparation for his college days.......

B. About This Game 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yukyu kumikyoku perpetual suit -all star project- is the latest
installment of Yukyuu series, also this is the first Yukyuu game 
that I've played (I hope other people who live in Indonesia are able 
to help me find the other...:), as well as the other game on the series, 
"All-Star Project" will unlikely come in the US, tough.

The gameplay incorporates role playing game, strategy and highschool
life simulation, but it is not necessary to dating the girls. And
you may also choose one between 28 available characters to play
through the school year. It doesnt matter what's your gender, 
guys can make a relation with girl and girl can make a relation with
guys, while the graphic quality isn't bad afterall (kinda like harvest
moon I think...) plus, there's lot of well drawn picture, that will
make you trying to beat the game more than once in order to complete
it. Anyway, to the guide........

you may notice it from table above 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
D. When you're talking with other people
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-exchange item (not actual translation): exchanging your item with another
person in the game, sometime it'll give you good effect, (eg: got a new and 
better item), anyway..I suggest you to use this a lot...

present: give your item to another person, depend of his/her interest, sometime
the person that you give item will said that he/she's happy and he/she will 
also says "thank you". Anyway, both of first and 2nd option is good to increase 
your friendship level with other character. 

stop (yamero): Stop talking, you may also acces this by pressing X button.


=============================================================================
3. HOW TO PLAY 
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
A. During "Free Choice Day"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

What must you do: proceed to the game (by clicking "Go") and then, choose 
your destination, by clicking place that you want to visit.  
you may talk with anybody to exchange item, or if you don't want to,
you may press X button to leave the place.  

There's a limitation. Usually you can't exchange item more than 5 times
(or 3 sometimes), so use this chance wisely since it'll affected the item
that you'll use during "Mission". Anyway, since what have you done during
free choice day will also affected your "friedship status"(?), try to focused
this with character that belongs to your group (that make appearance during
intro cut-scene after prologue FMV at very begining of game)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B. During Mission
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

You may accessed the mission from mission room, each certain day (see event 
list/Callendar section below). Usually you'll meet Randy Newman (that's old
man), or Hexa/Tedy (those 2 cute creatures). After having some conversation, 
you must pick 1 from 5 or 6 available mission each chance. The objective and
story behind each mission are various. Don't ask me about translation for this,
because im not good at reading Kanji. 

But, at least I know how to play it. It's kinda some sort of ludo game, 
but there's a requirement to win it. As example, "A" must reach goal below
10 turns, or "B" must defeat A. During the mission, you'll gonna controlled
your character, while the others controlled by CPU.  The game will ended
after ONE from all participants, can fulfilled their mission, or if there's
no longer any turn left.

Anyway this is the basic step that you have to know:

How to move your character: Choose one of available items that you own. 
The point of items will affected stepping range of your character. 
e.g: if you pick a "sketchbook" with 4 points, you'll gonna able to move
your character 4 squares. You still have to choose your own direction
tough...

How to fight another character: When your character have to fight an enemy,
(in case he/she is not your ally and they blocking your way). What must you
do is:
1. Pick the best item that you own.
2. Computer will compared your point and your enemy's point.
3. And then, Computer will randomized it. 
4. The winner will decided with "slot machine system". Push Circle button to stop. 
   Who has more point in final result will win.
5. the loser will lost chance to move for 1 turn.

Be aware: if you find a square denoted by a "red palm" icon, it means that
it'll asked an item if you want to pass it, make sure you have requested
item (more will come soon)

Check: If you found a square denoted with "white palm" icon, it means that
you'll got an Item if you're stop yjere
 
How to get picture before the mission: in case to completed your gallery, you 
must pick the right mission (depend of your character). If you don't I reccomend 
you to soft reset the game (L1+R1+Start+Select), and then reload data from main 
menu.
