Control Stick Functions

The Nintendo 64 Control Stick uses an analog system to read the angles and
directions of its movement. This allows precision control that is not
possible using the conventional Control Pad.

When turning the Control Deck power ON, do not move the Control Stick from
its neutral position on the controller.

If the Control Stick is held at an angled position (as shown in the picture
on the left) when the power is turned ON, this position will set as neutral.
This will cause games using the Control Stick to operate incorrectly.

To reset the neutral position once the game has started, let go of the
Control Stick so it can return to its center position (as shown in the
picture on the left) then press Start while holding down the L and R

The Control Stick is a precision instrument. Make sure not to spill liquids
or place any foreign objects into it.

The Center for Space Development was suddenly hit with a highly concentrated
energy beam; now only a barren wasteland marks the spot where the proud
complex once stood . . . in minutes news of the destruction reached the
Department of Defense. Some outside force had accessed GULF, a top-secret
strategic weapons satellite in orbit, and fired it without mercy.

The Secretary of Defense gathered his advisors, but had little confirdence
in their ability to deal with this worst-case scenario beginning to unfold.

The Secretary's worst fears were soon confirmed.

Reports that an unknown agency had successfully infiltrated and seized the
secret base at Westham were poring in.

Aside from the now defunct Center for Space Development, the base at Westham
is the only location from which the GULF system can be activated.
As reports of the damaged flooded the Department of Defense, the Secretary
receifed a message from Kenneth Coleman, the leader of a terrorist group
called the Crying Lions.

As Coleman explained the reason for the attack, the Secretary was faced with
the awful relization that the Crying Lions were not open to any
negotiations. They wanted freedom for their homeland Zarozcia, and would
stop at nothing to attain it.

There are only three hours until the GULF satellite is powered up and ready
to fire again.

The Secretary knows the has only one card left to play - the orders the
S.C.A.T. Team to mobilize - their orders:

Infiltrate the base at Westham and retake
control of the GULF satellite!

Aside from the handgun, other weapons may be picked up during game play.

you still have rounds left in a weapon, they are thrown away. To save
ammunition, you should choose your weapons carefully.

Handgun - The automatic handgun uses 45 caliber bullets. Each clip holds 8
rounds. It was developed by the Americal military and has undergone many
changes since it’s initial production long ago. Because of it’s strong
power, it is effective for personal protection at short range. However it
doesn’t provide enough firepower to deal with several enemies at once.

Sub-Machine Gun - This powerful sub-machine gun fires 9 mm rounds. Each
magazine holds 30 rounds. It’s light weight and heavy firepower make this
weapon a favorite of military and plice forces around the world. Because
every squeeze of the trigger fires several rounds at once, it is ideal for
situations which require less finesse and more firepower.

Shotgun - This is a 12-gauge shotgun designed for combat use. It can hold
up to 8 shells, and has a folding stock for increased portability. Like all
shotguns, your aims doesn’t have to be perfect in order to do damage. It is
effective against very quick enemies, but should not be used at long range.




S.C.A.T. (Strategic Covert Actions Team) is a top-secret band of
anti-terrorist operatives formed under the auspices of the President in
order to deal with terrorist actions that threaten national security.

Jean-Luc Cougar - Jean-Luc is a former member of a city SWAT team, 27 years
old and single. His ability to remain levelheaded in even the most
harrowing situations gained him a spot as the leader of the Advance Strike
Team of S.C.A.T. He is highly respected by the younger teammates, and finds
it easier to express his fighting spirit in actions rather than words. His
handgun is the last reminder of his brother Alan, a member of the Navy
Special Forces who was lost in battle and is presumed dead.

Lisa Roberts - The only female member in S.C.A.T. Her grandmother was
Japanese, and Lisa claims to possess a strong fighting spirit. After acting
her courses on criminal psychology at the university, she went on to join
the National Bureau of Investigation. She is also an excellent long-range
sharp shooter, and was once offered a chance to test her skills in the
Olympics. She was offered a position in S.C.A.T. after Dan saw her in
action during a training session at the NBI academy.



Daniel Stewart - S.C.A.T.'s first and only commander. His experiences and
leardership help hold together the various personalities that make up
S.C.A.T. He is also a former member of the Navy Special Forces and a
trusted friend of Jean-Luc’s brother Alan.

Law Bruford - 6'6' 250lbs of pure fighting machine. He was transferred to
S.C.A.T. from the Navy on the recommendation of his commanding officer. He
is unmatched in hand to hand combat, and was Jean-Luc’s toughest competition
for Leader of the Advance Strike Team.

Jake Hudson - A former Army grunt, Jake joined S.C.A.T. at the same time as
Jean-Luc. He is somewhat of a prankster and loves to pick on Lisa whenever
he gets a chance. He is as brave as they come and his shooting abaility is
questioned by none.

Matthew Brown - A veteran member of the team and former Air Force officer.
During his college days, he took 6th place in the National Heavyweight
boxing competition. His positive outlook and becoming too stressed and mark
him as the group’s “mood maker”.

Michael Hawkins - A demolitions expert and former member of the National
Drug Enforcement Agency’s bomb squad. His skills in defusing bombs and
destroying obsturctions make him a key player in the fight against

Thomas Smith - He is in charge of all communications for the backup support
team. A former member of the computer crime division in the National Bureau
of Investigation, he is well versed in all facets of computers and other
high tech electronics.

Steven Legal - As Lieutenant Commander of S.C.A.T. he received most of his
training in the British Secret Service. His information gathering and keen
analytical skills make him the top choice for any scouting mission.

Keith Birdy - No team would be complete without a support member trained in
medicine. As the rookie of the team, Keith joined S.C.A.T. with the highest
recommendations from the President. The GULF mission is the first with the


Use Stealth to Your Advantage:
It goes without saying that it is safer to take out 10 enemies indi-vidually
than it is to tackle 10 enemies at the same time. Avoid engaging several
enemies at once to curtail grave injuries. Instead of running headlong into
certain danger with guns blazing, use obstacles to your advantage. Hide
behind crates and steel drums as you sneak up on enemies. Once you have
them in your sights, take them out quietly. Don’t fire your gun needlessly.
The sound will bring other terrorists rushing onto the scene, making your
job that much more difficult.



Master the Capture Camera Mode:
Enemies do not just wait for your attacks. They move and dodge your
attacks. When you attack many enemies at once or fight the boss characters,
you must defeat them as quickly as possible by shooting at them precisely.
Otherwise, they will cause you serious damage. Use the down C Button to
have the camera’s orientation lock on an indicated enemy. This greatly
improves the accruacy of your gunfire on a moving enemy.

Make Explosions Work for You:
Sometimes it is more effective to use explosive objects instead of ealing
with several enemies at once. Some of the steel drums and crates are
explosive. You can blow up these objects by shooting them. Just target the
explosive object and let the ensuing explosion do the work for you. There
are several different tpes of explosive materials in the game. Some
explosive objects require more than one hit.



Using Walls and Columns Effectively:
If you can approach an enemy without being noticed, you can catch them off
guard with a surprise attack. This technique allows you to rapidly fire at
enemies from a defensive position against a wall or column. Enemies are
especially vulnerable to attacks from behind. If possible, try to sneak
behind an enemy and then hit them quickly. It is possible to take the
terrorist out with just one shot.
-With your back against the wall, use the left/right C Buttons to ro-tate
the camera. This allows you to easily see what an enemy is doing.
-If you press R while in this position you can move into attack po-sition
very quickly. Release R to return to your defensive position.

Time Your Reloads:
Never try to reload while you are under heavy fire because it leaves you
totally defenseless. If you are hit in the middle of reloading, you won’t
finish and and will have to try again. This takes tiem and gives your
enemies more time to hit you again. Time your reloads carefully.
