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.
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. )
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.
You have to face Gargoyle in the Gnosis Cathedral Ship. The Gargoyle actually
Commander Cherenkov. You need to have Shion, chaos, and KOS-MOS fight. Make sure
that you have the upgraded frame and generator parts for Shion’s and chaos’s A. G. W. S.
units. Equip both A. G. W. S. units with a sword since the Gargoyle and other Gnosis
aren’t good against close range attacks. Make sure everyone is at least level 18 or
higher. When the battle starts, get into the A. G. W. S. units, and only attack the
Gnosis on the right until it is dead. Why the Gnosis on the right? Because it can
heal the Gargoyle 600 hp every turn. Then have KOS-MOS use med-kits on herself
until she is fully healed. Finally attack the Gargoyle.
See Shion or MOMO in a swimsuit:
When you are saving the people at the Kouki foundation, there is a chest in the
hotel. When you get it, it will say „Swimsuit”. You can equip it to Shion or MOMO.
This allows their TP reward to increase by 25%. Also, when they are fighting they
will be in a swimsuit. If you saw the intermission sequence where they are at the
foundation’s beach, you will see MOMO and Shion in a bathing suit. That is how
they will appear as when they fight with the swimsuit equipped. Also, the same
item can be won by completing Mission 4 of the Driller Game. A third and final
swimsuit is to be found by defeating Great Joe. Note: Jr. and Chaos can also wear
the swimsuit, and can be seen in swimming trunks.
