I take back my compliments. I'm playing MG2, and I encountered a part that told me to look in the manual to figure a code out... And neither the manual supplied with the game or the one provided on their site explain it. Looking at a faq, there's reportedly more scenarios like this. God dammit, to bring out a game like this and not bother to either rewrite it to explain such things or provide proper instructions on the disc somewhere is just piss poor design. I hope they realize how stupid that was and fix it for next time.
And sorry for the double post, but a weekend passed between my last post and this. :P
Edit: Seems someone translated the MSX version's manual some time ago. For anyone that needs it, check it out.
Edit 2: I really hate how this is set up to force close tags at the end... Even if you clicked the button initially but closed it manually. Bleh.
