1.Introduction
===========================================================
Below I've compiled a checklist of all 48 chips with their 
descriptions. Different chips give different abilities. 
Some give your core specific movement actions while others 
tell it what weapon to use. The chips often override your 
base character AI tuning. You gain chips after league 
battles, win or lose.   

You can set the occurrence of specific actions during a 
match. Matches span for 3 minutes (180 seconds). For 
example, you may want to use the "Dead Inside" chip early
in the 0 SEC slot so you can save the Inside part for later 
on in the match.

A typical chip looks like the following:

 ______
|    06| <--- this number denotes how many of those chips
|      |      you have available
|MOD-1 |
|______|

When you highlight your chip, on the right side it tells 
you the number of chips you own total and how they are 
distributed among your five cores. There is also a 3x3 
grid:

|BU    |EO    |INS   |
|______|______|______|
|AL    |MOV   |AR    |
|______|______|______|
|BST   |OB    |JMP   |
|______|______|______|

Different portions are shaded denoting what the AI is 
programmed to emphasize.

Symbols:
BU  - back unit
EO  - exceed orbit (EO) function
INS - use of Inside part
AL  - arm unit left
MOV - basic movement
AR  - arm unit right
BST - normal booster
OB  - overboost function
JMP - jumping
