Welcome to the Perfect Beatrix Guide 6.0
========================================

This FAQ is copyright 2000 to me. Do not copy or plagerise anything 
from this guide. Automatic permission to use any excerpt from this 
guide is given without haveing to email me, provided that you most 
definitely credit "Elranzer" for the info. Also you may use it on 
your website but please email me your URL, so I can see where my 
work is being posted. Remember that most likely, the Japanese edition
of the game was used to write this guide, so bear with the names of
spells and items, etc.

It is only appropiate that I made a real guide to get the most 
controversial character in the game, Beatrix. This method is no joke, 
as opposed to my "infamous" method on GameFAQs's FF9 messageboard 
which just satired FF6 and FF7's rumored characters and revivals.
That hoax was just to prove that most of the people playing FF9
started with FF7, shame on them for missing out on the TRUE biggest
RPG hoax of all time... General Leo in FF6. And these people thought
that the small Aerith hoax was a big deal... and it wasn't. Anyway...
Unlike my hoax which lasted from July 2000 through September 2000,
this method actually simply (but not painlessly) gets Beatrix in your
party. Please follow the instructions carefully before emailing me with 
HOW-TO questions.

I. Getting Beatrix
==================

I-A. What You Need if You Want Her
-----------------------------------
- An Action Replay device (Gameshark, Goldfinger, etc)
- An ON/OFF Switch on the device (Game Shark CDX will NOT work)
- Most likey a PlayStation dated BEFORE 1999 (to support Action Replay) 
- Final Fantasy IX (Japanese or North America editions)
- The appropiate Action Replay code for your device
- This guide

I-B. Pick Your Code
--------------------
- Japanese Game/Action Replay (or compatable): 801F4736-0208
- American Game/Action Replay (or compatable): 301F4761 00FF + 301F4761 0008
- American Game/Game Shark: E01F4761 00FF + 301F4761 0008

I-C. The Method
----------------
- Enter the appropiate code into your device
- Start your saved game
- When you appear, immediately save again
- DO NOT go to the menu screen nor get into a battle
- Turn off the Gameshark and reset (L1, L2, Start, Select)
- Go back into your saved game and into the party screen
- You should now have ALL nine slots filled, one for you-know-who


II. Mastering Beatrix
=====================

II-A. Stuff to Remember
------------------------
- She is at Level 20, so start building up her levels
- She already has all her abilities and cannot learn more
- She has the Save-the-Queen permanately equippped
- Since she cannot use Support Ability, equip armor that has abilities in them
- She has two abilities with useful techniques and magic

II-B. Problems...
------------------
- Her face doesn't appear on the LOAD GAME screen, harmless
- She cannot de-equip the Save-the-Queen (without Action Replay)
- However she is the ONLY player who can use the Save-the-Queen
- She cannot use Support Abilities, yet has Magic Stones

- Using her to fight some battles (especially Necron!!) will freeze the game
