                                WELCOME
You have joined the elite ranks of those qualified to direct and command
our cyborg Agents to further the prosperity and authority of EuroCorp.
You have been assigned Agent Team: MU.

You have the following resources:
8 (eight) EuroCorp cybernetically-enhanced Agents
A variety of weapons, designed for increased frag-ability
50,000 (fifty thousand) EuroCorp credits
1 (one) LIMBO-class Cryogenics Facility
1 (one) HELICON-level Research facility

You have been granted security clearance EX-ALFA3.  This gives you
freedom to issue elimination/demolition orders.  Your only crime will be
to fail the Corporation.  If your cell is rendered inoperable through 
misuse of funds and/or Agent loss, your resignation from EuroCorp will
be tendered immediately.

Should you fail in this duty, you will be immediately classed as an 
NTE-1 Neutralization Priority.  We feel confident that your skills 
andintegrity will ensure that this state of affairs will never arise.

                INTRODUCING THE MARIONETTE E RD/OS
The Marionette Remote Drone Operating Suite is the latest refinement of 
the Remote Tactical Control technology which was instrumental in 
EuroCorp's rise to global supremacy.  Via the Marionette desktop system
you can observe and influence any combat encounter in which your Agent 
team is involved.

NEW GAME                Select this option to access the UTOPIA 
                        mainframe and take control of your Agent team.

LOAD GAME               Select to return to a previously saved game.


                ALLEGIANCE
ALLEGIANCE PANEL        This panel confirms the agency/department for
                        which you work.  In this case, this is EuroCorp
                        Syndicate Internal Security Agency.  You can 
                        also select to play as Church of the New Epoch.


                OPS SCREEN
The Ops Screen gives you access to all of Marionette RD/OS's many 
applications.  From here, you can communicate with your Agent 
Cryogenic facility and Central Armory, and handle necessary data 
administration.  The Ops Screen is also your e-mail point of contact
with EuroCorp Command.

Right           Access the following options by selecting them with the
                D-Button and pressing X.

        Briefing        Select this option to read your mission
                        briefs.  Understanding each brief can lead
                        to an efficient execution of EuroCorp 
                        orders.
        Cryovat         Non-operational Agents are stored in the LIMBO-
                        class Cryogenics Facility.  While in deep-
                        storage, they can also have their cybernetic 
                        components enhanced and restored, making your 
                        Agents even more formidable.
        Equipment       Contact EuroCorp Central Armory to purchase new
                        weaponry for your Agents.  Surplus or acquired
                        items can be sold back to the Corporation.  See 
                        the Equip Screen for more details.
        Start Mission   Only available once the Briefing has been 
                        attended.  Select to contact the EuroCorp 
                        Transport department and arrange Agent transfer
                        to mission zones.
        Options         For further tweaks of your audio/visual system 
                        and adjustments to your Marionette RD/OS.  You
                        can also register your progress and return to 
                        previous combat situations.  Please see Options
                        for more information.


                                THE BRIEFING
Select Briefing to receive a mission briefing.  This informs you of recent
developments in the global situation, the actions you are expected to 
take and the city in which you are to take them.  In some missions, there
is extra information that can be purchased from informants.

                                THE CRYOVAT SCREEN
This screen puts you in contraction with your LIMBO-class Cryogenic 
Facility, where Agents are stored and surgically altered when inactive.

Agent Storage
You have been assigned your own LIMBO-class Cryogenic Facility for this
purpose.  Initially, you command one operational team of four Agents, 
so your usage of the Facility will be minimal.  However, you will use it
more as more Agents are assigned to you, or as you 'recruit' more.

To swap an Agent in storage for one that is currently operational:
        1. D-Button (Left, Right, Up, Down) and press X on the relevant 
           Agent number at the top of the screen (for example, 1 if 
           Agent 1 is to be substituted).
        2. Press X on the name of the Agent who is to take over, and the
           two Agents swap places.  This procedure can also be used to 
           alter the hierarchy of an Agent team.

Cybernetic Modification
The LIMBO Facility can also be used to install cybernetic implants into
the bodies of Agents.  Initially, only Level One Body augmentation is 
available, though as superior research filters through, more advanced 
options become available.

To have an Agent surgically modified:
        1. Choose his Agent number.
        2. Choose the surgical modification you want.  A diagram and 
details of the modification appear in the window to the right of the 
screen, along with the cost of the modification.
        3. If you wish to proceed with the implantation, select Accept 
and press X.  The Facility auto-surgeon performs the operation immediately.

        Note: You can select and press X on the Information icon, 
represented as a letter "i", to receive a short text description about
the displayed object.

Initially, the following modification will be made available:

Body 1  To increase chances of survival in hostile environments, encase 
        an Agent's organs in triple-plate titanium alloy.  An enhanced
        body gives a cyborg the single biggest protection from punishment.

        Note: This modification must be completed before you make any other
modifications.

As the game progresses, you have a greater choice of modifications.  
These are the first you encounter:

Arms 1  Add tungsten tendons and steel cybernetic arms to improve your 
        Agents' accuracy and save ammunition.  The life span of an Agent
        is also lengthened by the health boost that accompanies 
        cybernetic enhancement.
Legs 1  These artificial legs increase an Agent's health and top speed.
        Stamina is also improved, increasing the range an Agent can cover
        at top speed.
Brain 1 This package increases basic perceptions and contains trauma
        management software to improve the cyborg's ability to withstand
        otherwise critical damage.

Later versions of these implants become available as research continues,
as will wholly new Agent modifications.

                                THE EQUIPMENT SCREEN
>From here you can communicate with EuroCorp Central Armory, purchasing
weaponry and equipment for your Agents.  At the top of the screen there
are four numbers, corresponding to the four members of your active Agent
team.
        Select an Agent's appropriate number with the D-Button and press
X to confirm that selection.

To the left of the screen is the selected Agent's inventory.  Each Agent
can carry up to six weapons or items.

                                WEAPON DETAILS
Our R&D teams are at work developing new and deadlier weapons for our
Agents.

In the center of the screen is displayed a list of the weaponry 
currently available from EuroCorp Central Armory.

        To get information on a particular weapon, press X on the 
information  icon.  Details of the weapon, along with a picture, are 
displayed in the window at the right of the screen.

Price
The cost of buying the new weapon.  You can also press X on the 
Information icon to receive a short text description of the weapon.

BUYING AND SELLING
If you want to purchase a weapon for your Agent, press X on the Accept 
box at the bottom left of the window.  The price in credits is 
automatically deducted from your cash reserves, and the Agent receives 
the selected weapon.

        Note: An Agent can only have one of each type of weapon except 
explosives, mines, grenades, and gas which they can have four of.

It is also possible to re-sell weapons to EuroCorp Central Armory.
        To do this. press X on the desired weapon in the Agent's 
inventory.  Weapon details and a picture will appear as usual, but the
Accept box is  replaced with a Sell box.  The price appears in the 
Price entry.  It is usually about half the weapon's original price.

List of Available Weapons
Initially the following weapons are available; more become available as 
you play the game.  Check the Information icon to get information on each
new weapon.

UZI 9MM         Forged from the chaos of mid-20th century street-
                fighting, the energy pellet modified Uzi 9mm machine gun
                is the basis of EuroCorp operations tech.  It's an 
                inexpensive and lightweight backup for Agents dealing 
                with cases of dropout psychosis.
MiniGun         Syndicate deployment of inertia-damped chain gunners has
                became more commonplace  This 20mm plasma capsule firing,
                torque stabilized version has foam alloy barrels to 
                reduce mass and production costs.
Pursuadertron   A standard-issue utility for seizing high level brain 
                functions of citizens equipped with UTOPIA CHIPs. 
                Although very low power and lightweight, the 
                Persuadertron was instrumental in bringing about 
                EuroCorp's global domination.  Persuaded subjects follow
                the controlling Agent without question.
Knockout Gas    This hand-grenade contains compressed Carbon Monoxide, 
                an asphyxiating gas.  The cloud emitted on detonation 
                renders all personnel in the area unconscious for a 
                limited time.


                                OPTIONS
FX Vol: Lower/raise the sound effects volume by pressing X on the 
        left/right arrows.
Music Vol: Lower/raise music volume by pressing X on the left/right 
        arrows.
Sound: Use the arrows to choose between Stereo or Mono.
Controller Config: Choose different Marionette RD/OS controller button
        combinations.
Players: This option allows up to four Executives to take control of 
        individual members of an Agent team When the Marionette RD/OS 
        is operating, each Executive has control of the relevant Agent 
        at all times, although the Mission Display centers only on the 
        active Agent. For three of four Executives, the Marionette RD/OS
        requires that a Multi Tap be connected.

                        scratch.

        Note: Never insert or remove a memory card when loading or saving 
files.


                                TACTICAL OPERATIONS
Once your Agents have been ferried to the mission locale, your Marionette
RD/OS initiates drone connection, giving you direct control over your 
Agents.  Now, no matter what threat the Agents experience, they will 
carry out your orders or die trying.

MAIN DISPLAY
The Main Display shows you a real-time simulation of the mission area, 
with all buildings, features, vehicles and people incorporated.

        To rotate the view, press LI/R1.  This rotates the Main Display 
view  Anti-clockwise and Clockwise respectively.  To see more of the 
area your selected Agent most have a weapon with a longer range.

SCANNER
The Scanner in the bottom left of the screen offers a simplified, top-
down view of the mission area.  The Scanner scrolls with the Main Display
giving you a tactical vantage point on more distant areas.

The Scanner can classify persons in the mission area from their CHIP-
status and color-code their appearance on the Scanner display.

Red             EuroCorp Agents
White           Church of the New Epoch Zealots
Gray            Citizens
Yellow          Persuaded citizens
Blue            Police
Red             Mission objectives (usually persons needing persuasion
                or elimination)
Black           Operative
Small Yellow    Special Items
Small Green     Dropped items
Green           More unguided citizens

Your scanner also picks up the radio waves emitted on security 
wavelengths, letting you pinpoint crucial areas of operation, your 
foe, or vital mission objectives.  These appear as concentric circles
on your Scanner, radiating out from their position.

In certain missions, you are instructed to take person or object A to 
point B.  A transmits a focused signal, appearing on your scanner as a 
series of white arcs to help you locate its position.  Point B emits 
normal concentric circles.

AGENT STATUS PANELS
At the top of the screen are Agent status panels, giving the Agent's 
team number, health, psychotropic status, and powerpack level.  The Agent
Numbers themselves are used for selecting and locating individual 
Agents.  See Agent Control for more details.

HEALTH BAR
The Health Bar is a graphic representation of how much damage each of 
your Agents can suffer before suffering terminal injury.  It slowly 
diminishes as the Agent is injured.  Once it's gone, the Agent dies.  
Fortunately, Agents have artificially boosted Healing Indices, and 
their flesh can recover from puncture and concussion damage quickly.

SHIELD BAR
Not only are Agent's vital organs protected by Titanium plate, they 
also have Force Shields implanted into their bodies.  When an Agent 
suffers impact trauma, it is this Shield that takes the initial force 
of the blow.  A blue flash shows that the Shield is operating. 
However, the energy expended generating this protective force is so 
great, it cannot be maintained for more than a few seconds.  In combat,
the Shield rarely protects your Agents from more than the initial assault.

The Shield Bar must be completely depleted before the Agent starts to
take damage to his Health Bar.  Once depleted, the Force Shield 
capacitors takes a few minutes to charge up again.

PSYCHOTROPIC INFLUENCE BAR
If not directed, an Agent might stand immobile while being shot.  However,
there will be occasions when it is desirable for an Agent to operate 
semi-autonomously.

To this end, each Agent has an IV fitted, containing quantities of two
different substances, allowing you to administer doses as required.  
Blue Funk generates considerable paranoia, meaning the Agent will 
attack any target that strays within firing range.  Red Mist, on the 
other hand, greatly heightens awareness, and ferments a ferocious 
battle rage in the mind of the Agent, meaning that he will attack with
ruthless precision any potentially hostile target.  Unfortunately, 
both Red Mist and Blue Funk are very short-lived substances--ones for 
which the Agent's heightened metabolism could quickly develop a 
tolerance.  Use them sparingly.

There are several side effects to these substances.  Physically, the 
Agent will be enhanced, running and reacting much faster, with large 
doses having greater effect.  However, his accuracy and fire control 
may be compromised, wasting ammunition.  The Agent will also heal more
slowly and will not regain stamina as quickly.

        Press O and D-Button Left to dose the Agent with Blue Funk.
        Press O and D-Button Right to inject Red Mist.

        Note: Once dosed, the Agent acquires tolerance, meaning that 
the maximum dosage you can apply wanes.  Allowing the Agent respite 
from narcotic influence lets his tolerance restore, meaning that the
substance can be employed again.

In Group Mode, you automatically dose all grouped Agents.  If you are
using the mouse controller, right-click on the PSI Bar to dose all 
grouped Agents.

STAMINA BARS
Overlaid on the Psychotropic Influence Bar are two white bars, 
indicating an Agent's Stamina levels.  Stamina is depleted through 
running and drug use, and the white bars reflect this.  When they 
hit the center zero bar, the Agent is exhausted and can no longer 
run or be subjected to narcotic influence.


WEAPON SELECTOR AREA
When your Agents begin a mission, their weapons are concealed to prevent
panicking civilians and forewarning potential enemies.  However, in any
mission it will not be long before recourse to armed response is 
necessary.
        To arm an Agent, press Square.

A menu of the weapons held by that Agent appears.

D-Button Up/Down to highlight the weapon icon of the weapon you want,
then release.
        The Agent swiftly draws and readies the weapon.  The weapon's
icon appears highlighted blue in the Weapon Selector.
        Should you wish an Agent to re-conceal his armament, press Square.
D-Button Up/Down to remove the highlight.  The Agent hides the device.

When controlling an Agent team, you can have all of them select the same
weapon simultaneously by pressing Square.
        D-Button Up/Down to select the weapon and D-Button Right in the
same manner as above.

Some weapons also take time to reload.  This is indicated by the 
flashing weapon icon.  Once the flashing stops, the weapon can be used
again.

Should you wish to drop an item, press Square on the Weapon Selector to
bring up the Weapon Inventory.  D-Button Up/Down to weapon icon you 
want, and then D-Button Left.  The Agent drops the object onto the floor.

GROUP SELECTION
So one of your highest priorities is to see that your Agents function
well as a group.  Group Mode is the function that lets you do this. 
Every time you press Select, one of the three remaining Agent Status 
Panels lights up.  For each panel that is lit, one Agent follows an 
active Agent, and will follow his movement and targeting precisely.

POWERPACK INDICATOR
Today's weapons all operate from the same basic power source: the 
MicroFusion reactor.  Every Agent has one of these highly efficient 
generators.  Generated power is stored in an attached capacitor. 
Whereas energy weapons convert this power directly into the appropriate
energy form, projectile weapons use the power to expand and fire 
ultra-dense energy pellets, giving such devices as the Uzi 9mm 
essentially infinite ammunition.  However, the MicroFusion reactor 
can't generate enough power to match energy usage.  Continual fire 
can temporarily exhaust the powerpack, indicated by the white bar 
depleting.  Should the generator run out completely, the Agent must 
wait a few seconds before using weapons.

Note: When using an Unresearched Weapon, there is a 1 in 4 chance of a
feedback loop, which drains all of your powerpack energy.


                                AGENT CONTROL
Selecting Agents
Usually, you can only issue orders to the active Agent, although if the
Group mode is on, the other Agents will follow his lead.

        To select an Agent, press L2 and D-Button Up/Down/Right/Left to
select the Agent number at the top of the screen.  The highlighted 
number shows that the Agent is active.

Moving
To move the active Agent or Agents, you have two options:
        1. D-Button Up/Down/Left/Right.  To make Agents run, double-press
the relevant D-Button.
        2. To move Agents from one area to another, press Triangle.  Use
the D-Button to move your view to the desired location.  Pressing 
Triangle again sends the Agents to your chosen location, indicated by a
brief glowing circle.  You can interrupt this journey at any time, by 
pressing the D-Button.

You may discover sliding doors blocking roads.  These allow traffic only
to pass through them, effectively blocking out the masses.  The only 
way to travel through them is to become part of the traffic.  Or blow 
up the doors.

Firing
Once an Agent has a weapon selected, press X to fire.  If there is an 
individual targeted, he will fire on that target.  Targets have square
target sights around them.

An Agent's aim automatically targets the most dangerous threat in range.
Using the PlayStation Mouse controller lets you pick and choose targets.
If the cursor is over a valid target, such as a person or a vehicle, then
a blue targeting reticule appears.  If the target is also within range 
of the Agent's weapon, then the cursor turns into a red crosshair; if 
the cursor remains as a white crosshair, then the target is out of range.

You can also overcharge some laser-based weapons, making them fire more
powerfully.  Because they only fire when you release X, hold it down to 
build up enough energy for a more powerful attack.

        Note: If your Agents are operating as a team, they all fire at 
the selected point when you press X.

Picking Up/Dropping
Dead enemies often drop their weapons as they collapse in their death
throes.
        To pick up the weapon, walk over it.  A symbol with the weapon 
appears at the bottom right of the screen.
        If you do not have this weapon, press R2 and D-Button Left/
Right to pick up the weapon.

To drop an item:
        1. Press Square to bring up the Weapon Inventory.
        2. D-Button Up/Down to select the item you want to drop, then 
           D-Button Left.  The Agent drops the object.

Self-Destruct
If your Agents are fitted with Level 1 Body Modification or higher, you 
can detonate an explosive charge fitted inside the Agent.
        To self-destruct, press X + Triangle + Circle + Square together 
to detonate the charge.

Using Vehicles
Your Agents can appropriate unoccupied vehicles to gain speed and access
to vehicle-only areas.
        To use a vehicle, approach it, press R2 and D-Button Up.  The 
Agent(s) gets into the vehicle.
        Vehicles can only be moved by pointing to an area.  Press 
Triangle, move the viewing area to the desired location, and press 
Triangle again.  The vehicle moves to the desired location.
        To stop the journey, or to get out of the vehicle, press R2 and
D-Button Down.

        Note: Most vehicles are confined to roads, so clicking on 
non-road terrain may not have the desired result.

Persuasion
Using the Persuadertron herds groups of citizens by linking their 
neural system to the Agent with the Persuadertron.  While other 
Agents, Zealots, or Police are resistant to such attempts, an 
existing group of persuaded citizens may be used to gain control 
over them.  Thus, six persuaded citizens lets an Agent control a 
policeman, while twenty persuaded citizens gives you control over 
an Agent or a Zealot.  Ten persuaded citizens can give you control 
over one Unguided citizen, and fifteen persuaded citizens gives you
a mental grip on an Operative.

Once you have a policeman, six persuasion "points" are added to your
total.  Similarly, an Agent or Zealot gains you twenty persuasion 
points, an Unguided citizen adds ten, and an Operative gives you an 
additional five.

See mission Objectives to see when such a skill may be needed.


                                FRIENDS AND FOES
EUROCORP
The EuroCorp Syndicate has been ruling the World for about 50 years now,
ever since it emerged victorious from the internecine strife of the 
Syndicate conflict.  In control of the minds and bodies of all the 
World's citizens by virtue of the CHIP technology implanted in every 
human being, it seemed that their stranglehold on World domination was
unbreakable--until now.


        Agents: The cyborg Agent s the acme of EuroCorp's security 
forces.  CHIPped up and cybernetically enhanced, the Agent exists to 
serve the orders of its Executive controller.  Fearless in combat, its
superhuman reflexes, great strength, and near-indestructibility make 
it an awesome foe and ally.

        Operatives: Basic security is handled by EuroCorp Operatives.  
Recognizable by the combat fatigues they sport, Operatives are little 
more than hired security guards, albeit security guards armed with
state-of-the-art weaponry and possessed of unflinching loyalty.


                                CHURCH OF THE NEW EPOCH
The Church of the New Epoch is a new and mysterious organization, which
is shaping up to be the first serious threat to EuroCorp's global 
sovereignty in 50 years.  While their spiritual message is the usual 
melange of half-baked mysticism and rigid hierarchy that characterizes
most extremist sects, what is extraordinary about them is their 
technical sophistication.

        Zealots: Our early encounters with the Church have shown their
forces to be made up by activists we have dubbed Zealots.  Cloaked in
white surplices decorated with religious symbols, these activists sport
heavy body armor, implanted with Force Shields.  The weight of their 
armor is counteracted by some sort of anti-grav device, which causes the
Zealots to float along the ground.  Seemingly under remote authority, 
they are very dangerous and accomplished adversaries.

        EWSs: Reports are coming in of sightings or Experimental Weapon
Systems apparently in the control of the Church.  Described as a huge,
robotic spider-like drone, its capabilities are unknown.


                                Citizens
Class C-Citizens: Class-C denotes a standard, CHIPped citizen.  We would
prefer that you leave Citizens unharmed, although a few peripheral 
casualties are understandable in a combat situation.

Class-U Citizens: A recent phenomenon, Class-U citizens are those who
have somehow broken their CHIP's influence.  They are aggrieved with 
EuroCorp, and have formed street gangs known collectively as The 
Unguided.  Sporting feral markings and clothing cognate with ate 20th
Century youth cults, they have armed themselves.

Police: Many cities still maintain municipal police forces.  They are 
well armed have body armor, wear blue, and carry Force Shields.  Their 
role is largely one of population mariagement, protecting and caring 
for Citizens.  Although CHIPped themselves, Police are kept in a state
of semi-awareness, and fed programs compelling them to accost any 
person bearing arms, with the obvious exception of our Agents.  
However, we have experienced problems in the past when cities have 
temporarily had UTOPIA contact severed with EuroCorp, the Police 
have responded to Agents aggressively.


                                VEHICLES
        Hover Can: Most of the vehicles an the roads are Hover Cars, 
which operate on the principle of Meglex (Magnetic Levitation).  
Unfortunately, this means that these vehicles are restricted to 
specially prepared roadways.  However, recent research has resulted
in the Anti-Grav engine.  This has complete freedom of movement in 
three dimensions. There are a few such vehicles in existence, 
although they look identical to their more conventional brethren.

        APC (Armored Personnel Carriers): APC are used by Operatives,
Agents, and Police to ferry personnel in safety through combat situations.

        MBT (Main Battle Tanks): The MBT is the heaviest armored 
vehicle, a protected hover tank with awesome offensive capabilities.
They are used only in the most critical combat situations.

                                        MISSION OBJECTIVES
To complete a mission, you must fulfill several mission objectives. 
Failure to complete even one of the mission objectives results in 
mission failure.  Below is a list of the more common mission types:
        Eliminate: Elimination missions require your Agent team to 
                terminate person(s) or Building(s).

        Persuade: Persuade missions require the use of the 
                Persuadertron, a useful piece of equipment that 
                "brainwashes' the victim into acquiescence.  The 
                targets must be evacuated safely for the mission to
                succeed.

        Escort/Protect: These missions require your Agents to protect
                persons, vehicles, or buildings, either safeguarding 
                them from enemy attack or insuring that a vital action
                is carried out.

        Acquire: Acquire missions require your Agents to steal an item,
                usually from a heavily-guarded area, and then 
                evacuate safely, bringing the item back for research
                or espionage.

        Evacuate: Evacuate missions require your Agents to escape the
                mission area and traverse a hazardous location before 
                they can be safely picked up by a Rescue Link.


                                        MAKING MONEY
        A healthy balance lets you buy more weapons and equipment as they
are researched.  Money can be earned by completing certain missions, but
a much more reliable way is to rob banks.

The flags with large dollar signs indicate a bank.  Send your Agents to
attack the building.  When it's destroyed and burnt to the ground, the
only objects still intact will be the indestructible currency cases.  
Retrieve them by picking them up.  The currency will be extracted on 
the Agent's return to HQ.


                                AFTER THE MISSION
The Debriefing Screen
        Once a mission is completed, the debriefing screen appears.  
It shows you how many people your Agents killed or persuaded, how much
net income the mission generated, how many of your Agents were killed, 
research weapons available, and Agents gained.  Agents are gained with 
the Persuadeltron, and are stored in the Cryogenic Facility.

        Once you have finished studying your mission results, press 
Triangle to go to the Ops screen.
