HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS
General playing tips: Whenever possible, fight. You will never know when a Boss is lurking around the corner. Utilize all of your T, E, and S points. Upgrade each attack accordingly and level up your characters. Also save your items (such as medkits and ethers). Whenever possible, evolve your Ethers. One of the most powerful character encountered using is KOS-MOS. She levels up quickly, and when she receives weapons and such she becomes more powerful. Note: In certain parts, KOS-MOS will not be a playble character. Keep your characters at even odds. The game is very unpredictable. Also take advantage of "Booster", as a lot of times you will DIE. All enemies possess the same abilities as you do. Whenever possible, stock up on Medkits and also upgrade your AGWS's.
Easy Tech, Skill, and Ether points: Use the following trick in the very beginning of the game for easy Tech, Skill, and Ether points. However, it can only be done with Shion. Go to the Gear hanger. Talk to the man that is working on a Gear. He will ask if you want to do a simulation. Say "Yes" and go into battle Winning this battle will earn you 16 to 180 points depending on if you got a x2, x4, or x10.
Easy cash: Get the Casino Card from the Durandal's Casino (north and east of Shione's room on the Durandal). Then, play Poker. Start with 100 coins (900 bucks) and play level 1 until you get about 200. Then, move straight to level 3 until you get about 700. Then, play level 4. The way to always beat the house is as follows. Always hold a pair or any other scoring combo. After you win, always do double or nothing. If the number is greater than 7 bet low, if the number is 8 it is your choice, and if the number is 9 or above it is best to go low. After accumulating about 45000 coins, get 99 starter decks of cards and sell them for 20,000. It takes a total of two hours to make about 100,000 (and all the prizes and art.)
Skip scenes: Pause game play and you will be prompted if you want to resume or skip the scene. This is useful when you have saved a game before a scene and get killed afterwards.
Skip scenes(2): Whenever you are viewing a previously watched scene, press Start then press Triangle. You will then skip the entire scene until you are in quest mode again.
Decoder #8: When you visit the Dock Colony for the first time, a woman in front of the clinic tells you of a Fish Detector that her husband lost. Go to the Kukai Foundation's cleaning place and inspect the tuxedo to find the Fish Detector. Talk to the girl in the Iron Man bar, sitting at the lower left table. She says that she lost an important ring and asks you to find it. Go to the Private Beach and go in the water where the fish show up on the radar screen. Run up to every fish and press Circle. Sometimes you will get an item, and sometimes you will not. You can get a Med Kit, a Speed Stim, and the Engagement Ring. If you return to the beach on any return trips, the Med Kit, and Speed Stim will be there again. Give the ring back to the girl in the bar. She will give you the Decoder #8 to open the red door.
Hazardous Area Map: On board the Elsa, you will see the pilot walking around in Hangar 1 (A.G.W.S. hangar), looking for a map. He does not give any concrete details, except to look everywhere, and that the captain wants it. To get the map, speak with the captain on the bridge. He will give it to you to take to the pilot.
Slide Deck Key: When you are onboard the Elsa, before the ship is attacked, you can speak to the repair robot in the A.G.W.S. hangar. He mentions that he is the hardest worker, and that while he was cleaning one of the cabins he lost his key to the Slide Deck. The key can be found on the couch in the lounge of Cabin 2 (the southern-most cabin).
Keeping Shion safe during the Gnosis attack: During the Gnosis attack on the Starship Woglinde at Shion's second encounter with the Gnosis, as they chase her she must run through the partition and quickly press the red switch on the other side to close it to stop the Gnosis from touching her. As this is difficult to do, there is a second, easier option. Have Shion keep running. Ignore and pass both red switches. Go through the open door into the empty room a few steps further down the hallway. Wait a few seconds in the room. The Gnosis will lose track of Shion. Then, give up and return to where they were before the chase. The coast will be clear and Shion can go safely to her next stop.
Game completion data: Once you complete Xenosaga: Episode 1, after the ending credits roll, the game will ask if you want to save. Answer "Yes" and the game completion data will be saved. Although you cannot load this saved game data with the Episode 1 game disc, do not delete it. It is likely that this game completion data will be used to load your characters stats into Xenosaga: Episode 2.
