Mistakes included... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1. Introduction ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ First, forgive any mistakes contained herein. This is my first wallop at creating a FAQ. Since this game has been out only about 5 days, I'm sure more information will come to light in the coming days. I'll update as frequently as I am able. All that being now said, on with the FAQ... Enter the Matrix, written and 'directed' by Andy and Larry Wachovski, broaches the fading line between entertainment mediums. Coupling the storyline between Matrix movies (The Matrix and The Matrix Reloaded) and the Animated backstory elements (The Animatrix: Flight of the Osiris) the Enter the Matrix game provides insight and further deepens the plot of the Matrix world. Although not integral to the story line the Multiplayer element of Enter the Matrix, provides a diversion for gamers and lets you play out some fantasy battles between Matrix characters. The Multiplayer mode is unlocked through the >Hacking< option on the main screen. A brief synapsis of how to unlock the Multiplayer sections is outlined below. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2. Unlocking the Multiplayer Section ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Although this is not a >Hacking< FAQ, but I believe it may be necessary to cover how to unlock the Multiplayer Section to avoid questions on it later. A. From the beginning: (my assumption here is that you are starting with a fresh save game.) 1. Select >Hacking< from the Main Menu screen. 2. Choose your Save Game 3. "Press Any Key to Continue" Can't find the Any Key? Use the 'A' button instead... 4. Enter 'DIR' at the Prompt... it now appears in your Command List 5. Use the Left Trigger to select DIR, and choose the 'A:\' drive. 6. Use the Left Trigger to select DIR, and choose the 'A:\TOOLS\' drive. 7. Enter 'LOGIN' at the Prompt... it now appears in your Command List, 8. LOGIN requests a password. The password GUEST will allow you to access the 'B:\' drive. 9. Use the Left Trigger to select DIR, and choose the 'B:\' drive. 10. Use the Left Trigger to select DIR, and choose the 'B:\TOOLS\' drive. 11. Use the Left Trigger to select DIR, and choose the 'A:\TEXT\' drive. 12. Type 'READ' at the Prompt... it now appears in your Command List. 13. Use the Left Trigger to select READ, and choose the 'A:\TEXT\NOTEZ.TXT' FILE. 14. Type 'VIRTUAL' at the Prompt. 15. Enter the Password (FROZENFISH). 16. You now have 60 seconds to solve the puzzle. Here's a hint, the cursor will start on the middle square always. Press the 'A' button to change the tile one time and match the rest of the tiles to the center tile. You are after the RED solution. If you get the blue solution, type TRACEKILL before the timer expires. 17. Once you have the RED solution, you will have access to the 'V:\' drive 18. Use the Left Trigger to select DIR, and choose the 'V:\' drive. 19. Use the Left Trigger to select DIR, and choose the 'V:\TOOLS\' drive. 20. Type 'PORTKEY 942', this will connect you to the LOGOS and Sparks. 21. Answer his qestions as you see fit. 22. When he gives you the EMP.EXE program... you are in. You have unlocked the MULTIPLAYER Section. (Sparks tells you he has unlocked a little present for you.) HERE IS THE TRICKY PART. PAY ATTENTION. You will need to plug another Xbox Controller into the Console, to actually be able to play Multiplayer. So go ahead and do that now. 23. Type 'EXIT' at the Prompt. 24. Yes, you want to save your progress. 25. WITH TWO OR MORE CONTROLLERS PLUGGED IN THE CONSOLE, from the main menu select >Load< 26. Select the game you saved your progress under. 27. Press Left in LEVEL SELECT until you go past the Post Office level. 28. You are in... Multiplayer. B. Alternately, you can unlock the Multiplayer section by entering the >Hacking< Section and entering 'CHEAT D5C55D1E' then saving your progress. But who wants to cheat anyway.? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 3. What is the Multiplayer Matrix? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ No big mystery once you're in there but the Multiplayer section allows you to control some of the Matrix Characters and duke it out 1 on 1 until you get tired. Of whipping the snot out of one another. A. Here are some unfortunate facts about Multiplayer mode: -- There is no FOCUS. -- You can kick, block, throw, reverse, and dodge. Thats about it. -- Once in Multiplayer the only way out is to >Quit< by selecting it from the start menu. (COME on Shiny, you could have done better than that.) -- You can only choose the Level, not the character. Characters selection is implicit in the level selection. There are a few pluses though: -- You can fight as Agent Smith. -- Trinity looks good, even for a Video game.. and you can Control her.... -- I bet you've never seen a Firebird take on a Caprice Classic like this. B. Your options, once at the Multiplayer Screen are: >The Subway< >The Dojo< >The Pit< >The Ballroom< >The Bedroom< >The Atrium< >The Alleyway< More on these below. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 4. Level/Character Description ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As a general rule, all Multiplayer levels will show the health status of each player in the bottom corner of his respective side. Player heath is represented as a 'life bar' and a percentage of 100. The middle bottom of the screen displays each sides win total as a ratio. Fighting takes place in an infinite loop so will continue until you and your buddy get tired. A. The Subway -- Morpheus vs. Agent Smith IMHO, this is the best re-construct of any of the levels. This is the Original Agent Smith vs Neo Subway Battle Scene from The Matrix (movie). The bad news is, no Neo. The good news is, Morpheus rocks. Morpheus-- dressed in black leather duster from The Matrix Agent Smith -- standard black suit and Raybans. B. The Dojo -- Niobe vs. Trinity Once again, a re-constituted level from The Matrix. (Neo vs. Morpheus training Dojo.) For those hardcore fans out there, it also seems this is a standard Training Dojo for Zion's flee (as seen with Thaddeus and that hottie from the Last Flight of the Osiris Animatrix Episode.) Niobe vs. Trinity in an all out cat fight. Trinity -- Tight Leather outfit from The Matrix Niobe -- C. The Pit -- Seraph vs. Ballard Straight from the basement of Chateau level where you have to fend off Cujo in Enter The Matrix. This time its the apoligizing bullet-proof monk vs. Capt Ballard. One very strange aspect of this fight is that it seems to take place about half-Focus speed. I'm not sure if this is a feature or a flaw, but it makes for a little different fighting. Seraph -- White Linen Gi jacket over black trousers Ballard -- Red Suit and Raybans D. The Ballroom -- Niobe vs. Ghost In the Ballroom of The Merovingian's Chateau from Enter the Matrix. Niobe and Ghost get the oppurtunity to knock each other around instead of helping each other out. Ghost -- Standard Ghost outfit. Duster and shades. Niobe -- Red alligator skin coat outfit. E. The Bedroom -- Cujo vs. Vlad Persephone's bedroom from The Merovingian's Chateau level in Enter The Matrix. Cujo and Vlad get it on Evil Dead style. Cujo -- Shirtless and wearing leather pants. Vlad -- Goth boy with Karate Kid styling. F. The Atrium -- The Sewing Woman vs. The Janior Yet another room from The Merovingian's Chateau in Enter The Matrix. This time the NPCs from the Chinatown level scrap for Best Supporting Extra bragging rights. The Sewing Woman and the Janitor battle to the death in this hi-stakes utlimate fighting championship.. The Sewing Woman -- Purple shirt and black pants. The Janitor -- Orange shirt black pants. G. The Alleyway -- Firebird Man vs Police Cruiser Man. The alleyway is from the Chinatown level close to the docks. The combatants here are Firebird Man and Police Cruiser man. Think you didn't see them in the the Matrix? Look again. Perhaps not very realistic but IMHO having a Firebird body check a Caprice Classic ranks pretty high on the entertainment scale. Firebird Man -- Metallic Purple, sadly, no hood decal. PoliceCar Man -- Black and white. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 5. Move List/Damage ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There are only a few basic movies in Multiplayer fighting although some may be strung together in limited combos. A. Basic Move Set (MULTIPLAYER ONLY) -- Green Button -- Dodge -- Red Button -- Kick
-- Blue Button -- Action/Reversal -- Yellow Button - Punch Left Thumbstick --- Modifier/Move Digital Pad --- Modifier/Move Star Button --- Quit/Resume B. As all the characters essentially have the same moves but somewhat different animations, I am listing the damage for the basic move set here. Characters with different(special) attacks are denoted. ATTACK--------------KEY SEQUENCE-------------DAMAGE----------------------NOTES Single Punch Y 3-4 % Double Punch YY 5-10 % Triple Punch YY 10-15 % Backhand < + Y 5-7 % Elbow/Slapdown ^ + Y 5-7 % Single Kick B 3-5 % Double Kick BB 4-7 % Triple Kick BBB 12-18 % Sweep v + B 7-8 % Spining Back Kick < + B 3-5 % Throw Y + B 12-13 % * Niobe Sword Attack substituted for throw when enabled Reversal X (while P2 attacks) 3-10 % ** Some characters will only dodge or block even if timing is perfect. Evade ^/v/< + A 0 % ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 6. Credits ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The only pholx I can credit with this FAQ are: 1. The Anopia Team - fr0sty, DickTracy, Weed, scorpion, Jacksoft, CoVerman, Glex25 Pasper and the rest. U know who you are. 2. The guy who posted the Multiplayer ulock cheat (not that I ever used anywhere but in this FAQ... still, i didn't figure that one out by myself.) 3. My wife for leaving me alone for 8 hours so I could finish it. 4. Shiny Entertainment for doing a reasonably good job of a Movie-Game. 5. GameFAQs.com for giving this FAQ a home. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 7.
