You will be presented with the Resident Evil title screen. There are 2 options: New Game or Load Game. Use the Directional Button to highlight an option, then press Start or X Button to select it. NEW GAME Select this option when you want to start a new mission, beginning with the intro. LOAD GAME Select Load Game if you have a previous game saved on a Memory Card. See following section for more information. You take command of either Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine, two top members of S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team. SAVING To save a game you must place an ink ribbon into a typewriter. Ink ribbons can be found in various places throughout the game. Once you find a ribbon, stand in front of the typewriter and press the Action button (X Button). You will be asked if you want to save your progress. Choose Yes or No. Note: You'll need to find an ink ribbon each time you want to save, so use your ink ribbons wisely. SAVING/LOADING If you attempt to save, and the message "Too Many Files" appears, you will be unable to save the current data on that memory card. You must use a different memory card with enough free memory. Up to 5 different files can be save, and 1 file consumes 1 block of memory on a memory card. To ensure your memory card has enough memory available to save, you must check it by following these steps: 1) Turn on the Sony PlayStation game console without inserting a disc. 2) Insert a memory card. 3) Select "Memory Card" with the Directional buttons and press the Circle Button. If all 15 memory blocks are used, you must either delete a block or insert a different memory card with enough free memory. To delete a file, follow these steps: 1) Select Delete from the Memory Card menu. 2) Select the card that has the data you want to delete. 3) Select the icon of the game data you want to delete. 4) When the message "Are you sure?" appears, select "Yes". To cancel deleting, select "No" LOADING If you have previously saved a game, make sure the Memory Card with the file(s) is inserted into the Player 1 Memory Card slot. Then highlight Load Game from the title screen and press the X Button. Your file(s) will appear. Use the Directional Button to highlight the file you want to re-start, then press the X Button. Select "Do Not Load" if you want to return to the title screen without loading a file. STATUS SCREEN When you press the Start button during game play the Status Screen appears. This screen shows your character's condition and the items you are carrying. Use the Directional Button to highlight an item or function, then press the X Button to activate the options. ITEMS After highlighting the item you want to use, press the X Button. You then have 3 options in the command window: Use/Equip, Check or Combine. Use/Equip To use the item, highlight Use and press the X Button. For weapons, Equip will appear instead of Use. If you select Equip, you'll be equipped with that weapon. You cannot use a weapon until you have equipped it. You can only use 1 weapon at a time. Check This option allows you to examine an item or weapon you have acquired. By using the Directional Button after selecting the item or weapon, you can rotate it and examine it in 3-D. If you want to increase or decrease the magnification of the time, press the L1 or L2 button, respectively. Combine Some items have a different effect when you combine them with other items, particularly weapons. When you want to reload a clip of ammo for a gun, select the clip then select Combn from the command window. Use the Directional Button to move the cursor onto the gun you want to put the clip in. Try combining other items to discover new effects. Condition On the Status Screen next to your character's mug shot is an electrocardiograph (ECG). This ECG shows the current condition of your character, and will read "Fine" or whatever the status of your character is. To return your character to better health, you must find medicine. MAP/FILE/RADIO There are 3 other functions you can perform from the Status Screen: Map Select this option to view the rooms and areas you have already visited. This feature helps you keep track of where you need to go. File As you explore, you will discover notes, messages, or other information that will automatically be filed in your character's notebook. Select this to view the contents of messages filed. Hints may develop from these notes. Radio If this option is available, you have a radio at your command, but cannot use it unless you hear it beeping. If you hear it beeping, quickly open the Status Screen and select Radio to receive the transmission. If you're too late, you could miss an important message! ITEM BOX You will notice that your character can only carry a certain number at a time (Chris carries 6 items, while Jill carries 8). You cannot lose an item once you find it, but you can use it up (like ammo, for example). In order to carry only the items you need at a certain time, you can store other items in an Item Box. These are located in strategic places, and you must use them wisely because they are limited in space. Stand in front of the Item Box and press the X Button. The Item Select Screen will then appear. You can exchange, give or take out items from the box. To place an item in the box, use the Directional Button to highlight the item, then press the X Button. Now select a slot that reads "Nothing" and press the X Button. The item has now bee placed into the box. If there are no slots that read "Nothing," the Item Box is full. To exchange an item, place the cursor over the item you want to exchange and press the X Button. Now highlight the item in the box you want to exchange and press the X Button. You have now exchanged items. To take an item out of the box, you must have an empty slot available to carry the item. Select the empty slot first then press the X Button to move the cursor to the item box. Highlight the item to take out of the box and press the X Button. OPTION MODE This mode can be activated by pressing the Start Button and the Select Button simultaneously (except during a cinema or while the Status Screen appears). You can adjust the configuration of your buttons (CONFIG) or adjust the Sound mode (stereo or mono). When adjusting your configuration, there are 3 set configurations: A, B, or C. You may also edit your configuration. To edit, highlight the button you want to change then press the X Button. The list of actions will appear. Move the cursor to the action, then press the X Button. When you have finished adjusting your options, select Exit. Note: Dash refers to "Run" and Get Ready refers to "Draw Weapon." WEAPONS Your standard equipment includes a 9mm semi-automatic hand gun and a combat knife. There are many other weapons to acquire through your search. Some weapons are more difficult to handle, so try them before taking them into combat (but don't waste too many rounds). Combat Knife A good weapon for a close fight, but not nearly as powerful or protective as a firearm. 9mm Hand Gun Popular, common hand gun used by many public organizations and armed forces for its high level of reliability. Your gun can hold a clip of 15 bullets maximum. When the clip runs out, and you have another, your character will automatically reload. Shotgun An excellent hunting gun. It sprays the ammo and is powerful enough to take down fast-moving enemies. It is extremely handy when used at close range. One of the most reliable weapons you can find. S.T.A.R.S. BIOS ALPHA TEAM Barry Burton Age: 38 Height: 6 ft Weight: 197 lbs Blood Type: A Chris Redfield's old friend and partner. Former SWAT team member, Barry maintains and supplies weapons for all S.T.A.R.S. members. He had over 16 years of experience, and has lead many projects to success. Barry is a trusted ally, but has had some trouble with his wife and 2 daughters recently. He may look or sound depressed at times. Joseph Frost Age: 27 Height: 5 ft 10 in Weight: 159 lbs Blood Type: B Previous member of S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team, and already stationed in Raccoon City, Joseph was recently promoted to serve as vehicle specialist for Alpha Team. Many members of Bravo Team are jealous of his promotion, but he was moved up by Wesker himself, Joseph is young, enthusiastic and very curious. Chris Redfield Age: 25 Height: 5 ft 11 in Weight: 177 lbs Blood Type: O After being kicked out of the Air Force, Chris became a drifter until he met Barry Burton. Barry recruited him for the newly-formed S.T.A.R.S. Now Chris has been reassigned to a smaller unit at Raccoon City headquarters to prove himself quickly. Chris is a tough guy who possesses both a strong mentality and great vitality. Jill Valentine Age: 23 Height: 5 ft 5 in Weight: 111 lbs Blood Type: B An intelligent soldier that has saved many S.T.A.R.S. members from danger in the past, Jill has been reassigned to Raccoon City just like Chris. She is excellent with special mechanical devices such as lockpicks. Jill has strong moral convictions and fights for what she believes in. While she has a great capacity for holding items, her small vitality puts her at a disadvantage. Brad Vickers Age: 35 Height: 5 ft 9 in Weight: 134 lbs Blood Type: O Brad is a computer expert and excels in information gathering. Unfortunately, his fear of dying draws much heat from his fellow soldiers. His lack of enthusiasm for rushing into danger has earned him the nickname "Chickenheart." While Chris is a qualified pilot, Brad has become the helicopter pilot for Alpha Team. Albert Wesker Age: 38 Height: 6 ft Weight: 186 lbs Blood Type: O Wesker has risen quickly inside the S.T.A.R.S. organization and currently leads the Alpha Team. Viewed by many as a "cool guy," from his snappy haircut to his perpetual shades, Wesker was recruited by a headhunter for his sharp insight and eventually founded the S.T.A.R.S. unit in Raccoon City. BRAVO TEAM Richard Aiken Age:23 Height: 5 ft 8 in Weight: 138 lbs Blood Type: AB A very important member of S.T.A.R.S. serving as Bravo's communications expert. The only link back to headquarters for teams out in the field, Richard actually has to pull double duty as radioman for both units since Alpha Team really has no trained operator, except for Jill (who has a knack for technology). A very positive person, Richard greets new members warmly. Rebecca Chambers Age: 18 Height: 5 ft 3 in Weight: 93 lbs Blood Type: AB The youngest member of the group, Rebecca has been recruited for her knowledge of field medicine and First Aid. She is nervous around other members, both because of her age and due to her lack of experience. Rebecca is eager to please and will take on any task assigned to her without hesitation. Enrico Marini Age: 41 Height: 6 ft 3 in Weight: 183 lbs Blood Type: O Bravo Team's leader, and Wesker's second in command for the S.T.A.R.S. unit. Enrico feels threatened by the arrival of the Alpha Team, thinking that Chris or Barry may end up replacing him as #2 to Wesker. Nonetheless, Enrico is a dedicated S.T.A.R.S. operative and is always proud to lead the unit when Wesker lets him. Forest Speyer Age: 29 Height: 6 ft Weight: 157 lbs Blood Type: A Forest is a great sniper in addition to his duties as Bravo's vehicle specialist. He is a consummate professional, and his work earns him great respect from the other members. He instantly clicks with Chris, and it seems they'll end up good teammates. Kenneth J. Sullivan Age: 45 Height: 6 ft 2 in Weight: 213 lbs Blood Type: O A quiet but very talented field scouting officer. Also is an expert in chemistry. He wonders why his chemical experience would be necessary in Raccoon City but quickly discounts his hesitancy since Wesker himself sought him to enlist in S.T.A.R.S. TIPS FOR SURVIVAL 1) IMPORTANT. The supply of ink ribbons is very limited. Use them sparingly. 2) Some of the enemies can be bypassed if you're quick, so try escaping from them whenever you can. Pick your battles carefully in order to save ammo for the more powerful enemies. 3) Weapon effectiveness varies with range and target. Your standard equipment is the Berretta but the shotgun is more effective for fast moving enemies like birds. The bazooka can be used against the bigger enemies. (Jill can't handle some weapons as well as Chris so try them before it become critical). 4) Listen for your enemies. Sometimes you can hear them before they approach you.
