CLIMAX LANDERS (Dreamcast Import)

FAQ Version 0.3
Start Date: 9/27/99 
by Thomas Schulze at TSCHULZE@aol.com

Let me warn you.  This FAQs is very rough.  I still needed to cover basic 
functions, status, skills, mini-games, monsters, items, quests, etc... In 
another words.  Alot!  So be patient.  I'll try to do an update pretty soon.  
Right now this only gives you the basic controls and screen functions.  I 
have a list of the Command Screens first and below that I have the Command 
Menus which reference the command screens.
