Base Wars

Typed out by Jesse Smith HOW TO PLAY NES-58-USA CYBER STADIUM SERIES BASE WARS ULTRA GAMES Congratulations! You're now the proud owner of Ultra's authentic version of Cyber Stadium Series-Base Wars for the Nintendo Entertainment System(R). We suggest that you read the following instructions thoroughly before stepping up to the plate. TABLE OF CONTENTS INTRODUCTION 4 HOW TO BEGIN 6 OPEN MODE (SINGLE GAME SET-UP) 6 PENNANT MODE (PENNANT RACE SET-UP) 10 THE PARTS SHOP 13 CONTROLLING THE ACTION. YOUR SHOPPING GUIDE TO DESTRUCTION 22 TAKING CARE OF YOUR GAME 24 NOW YOU'LL KNOW WHAT "SLUG FEST" REALLY MEANS. At last it can be told. How, at the turn of the 24th Century the game of baseball was changed forever. It happened in Cape Codpiece, Florida during the annual winter meetings. On the aluminum paneled walls of the posh hotel's Presidential Room hung stirring portraits of baseball's all-time greats. Legends like Cecil "Rooftop" Shingleton, Travis "Tee" O' Justice, and Tip "Rude" Wayter. Around the huge conference table sat a group of sour, seething executives collectively known as the baseball team owners. The issue before them-astronomical player salaries. (A Solar League official had just ordered one of the weakest franchises to shell out $2.4 billion a year to Gomer "Go Homer" Gomez, a lifetime .250 hitter.) For hours the owners debated their options. Until suddenly Irving Flopilidopolous, owner of the Boston Banshees, leaped from his chair and slammed his fist on the table. "Robots!" he exclaimed. The other owners looked blankly at each other. Then smiles slowly crept across their faces as they realized they had found the solution-replace the players with mechanical men. No more salary demands. Better yet, no more salaries! Just obedient automatons pre-programmed for action. The now inspired owners worked feverishly that weekend to refine their new sport which they christened Base Wars. The public was quickly captivated by this bizarre combination of baseball and gladiatorial combat played by an army of armor clad 4 cybernetic swingers. They especially loved the one-on-one battle royales for base possession, the loser of which is retired to the scrap yard. It wasn't long before Base Wars became the new intergalactic pastime. YOU CALL THE SHOTS WITH THE CYBORGS OF SUMMER. Now is your chance to participate in this sporting extravaganza. And when you do, you'll have more hats to wear than a four-headed haberdasher. Because in Base Wars you're the commissioner owner, manager, player, even the trainer. You'll name the teams, pick the robots, set the schedules and control all of the game action. And with the prize money you get for wins (and losses!) you can purchase power-up parts and weapons for the robots. So get ready to hit, pitch, catch and coach your way to the World Domination Series. And see why Base Wars gives new meaning to the phrase "slug fest". 5 HOW TO BEGIN It's Opening Day for the Cyber League, so press the Start Button to get to the Mode Select screen. Do you want to hear great background music? Press the Control Pad Down to move the cursor to the SOUND Mode box, then press the Select Button to turn the music option on or off. If you choose OFF, the music ends when game play begins.

Press the Control Pad Left or Right to select a music option number. Then press the B Button to hear the tunes.

When youÕve heard enough, press the Start Button and you'll return to the Mode Select screen. OPEN MODE-ONE GAME, WINNER TAKE ALL If you only want to play a single Cyber League game, press the A Button to choose PLAY BALL and begin choosing the two teams to play Here you have 14 teams to choose from-12 established franchises, plus two Edit Teams over which you have complete control including the team name, type of robot, robot's name, robot's position and even which side of the plate he swings from. (About the only thing you can't control is how much he chokes up on the bat!) 6 Press the Control Pad Left, Right, Up or Down to select Team 1 and press the A Button to lock in your decision. Press the B Button to cancel. Repeat this process for Team 2. Press the Control Pad Down to set the number of innings (up to 9). Press the A Button to lock it in, the B Button to cancel.

When you've completed all of your changes for an Edit Team, press the Start Button to return to the Mode Select screen. If you want to set up the other Edit Team, use the Control Pad to select TEAM EDIT, then press the A Button. Repeat this process to set up Edit Team B. If you do not want to set up another Edit Team, press the 8 A Button to go to the Team Select screen. Now select your two teams, playing mode, and number of innings.

To do this, select the appropriate Edit Team with the Control Pad, then select Reset, then press the A Button. [Edit team image.] 9 ACTION SO H0T, YOU'LL GET PENNANT FEVER BLISTERS. In this mode you can set up a Cyber League pennant race of up to 10 games with up to six of the 12 established ball clubs.

You can continue an existing pennant race by choosing CONTINUE with the Control Pad, then pressing the A Button. Now you must decide whether or not you want to keep the existing pennant race data. Base Wars has a special feature that actually lets you save pennant races and their data for future play. You'll be able to save such key stats as league ranking, home run ranking, ERA's and battle stats. (At least you won't have to worry about the robots going on strike and putting the kibosh on an exciting pennant drive.) Use the Control Pad to select YES or NO, then press the A Button and youÕre ready to begin. 10 Press the Control Pad to select the teams for the race, pressing the A Button to lock each one in, the B Button to cancel.

Repeat this process until all of your pennant race teams are completed. Press the Start Button one more time to confirm the teams you've chosen. If you want to make some more changes, use the Control Pad to select NO, then press the A Button to return to the Team Select screen. If you're satisfied, press the A Button to go to the Options screen. Here you can PLAY BALL, go to the PARTS SHOP check the teams' RANKING, or CHANGE the teams for the pennant race.

Each team is indicated across the top and down the left side by the first letter of its city. The top number in each box indicates how many games the team has won, the bottom number is the number of losses. To start a game, first decide which two teams you want to play each other, then use the Control Pad to select the box in the standings where the two teams intersect. Then press the A Button to check the fine-up of the first team. Press the A Button again to see the other team's line-up.

When you're finished looking at rankings, press the B Button to go back to the Options screen.

NOTE The Parts Shop is closed when you're only playing a single game. 13 SHOPPING With the money you win during the pennant race ($20,000 for each win, $5,000 for a loss) you can buy parts that add firepower and horsepower to robots. (Sorry, no blue light specials.) There are six categories of parts to choose from: Weapon (arms), Catch (parts for catching), Shoot (parts for shooting), Unit (parts for unit), Engine (parts for engine) and Shoulder (parts for shoulder). Move the cursor with the Control Pad to the category you want, then press the A Button. You'll be shown a list of parts and their prices. Select the part you want with the Control Pad, then press the A Button. (If you try to pull a fast one on Rexy by selecting a part that costs more than you have he'll give you an electronic Bronx cheer.) Now you must assign that part to a robot. Press the Control Pad Down to select the desired player. Then press the A Button and you can watch the part being added to the robot and look at the robot's updated data. Press the A Button again to continue shopping. Rexy will keep you posted on how much money you have left after each purchase. When youÕre done, press the B Button to begin making repairs or check your robots' data. If you donÕt want to do either, press the B Button two more times. 14 REPAIRS Choose Repairs and you can restore parts and power lost by robots during battle. But every repair has a price. (Yes, there's still inflation in the 24th Century) After selecting Repairs, press the A Button to view the team roster. Again, select the robot you want to repair with the Control Pad and press the A Button (B Button to cancel) and your repairs will automatically be made. If MAX appears in the far right column then that robot is at full strength. Otherwise a price will be shown indicating the cost of repairing that robot. Any robot that has been in battle will probably need repairs (see BATTLING FOR BASES, page 21). 15 ROBOT DATA This selection lets you review a robot's offensive and defensive arsenal. After you've selected Robot Data with the Control Pad, press the A Button. Then once again use the Control Pad to pick the robot whose data you want to look at, then press the A Button. Press the A Button again to see the lineup again. Check more robot data if you desire, or press the B button to return to the Shopping/Repairs/Robot Data screen. After you've done all your shopping, repairing, and data checks for a team, you can do the same for any other team. Simply press the B Button and you'll see the list of teams Select another team and continue your parts shopping spree. When you're ready to leave the shop, press the B Button one more time. Rexy will thank you and return you to the Options screen 16 CHANGES With this option you have one last chance to change team names, team owner names, and team playing mode. After selecting CHANGE with the Control Pad press the A Button and you'll be shown a list of the teams, their owners and their playing mode.

Press the A Button to throw a pitch. Once the pitch has left the pitcher's hand you can press the Control Pad Left, Right, Up or Down to alter its path. (Don't worry if you hit the batter. Charging the mound was ruled illegal earlier after a bench clearing brawl left numerous craters in the field.) If you really want to unleash some smoke, press and hold the A Button. The pitcher will begin to flash. Release the A Button when you're ready to unload that fast ball. NOTE: There's no need to swap controllers with your opponent when the teams change sides; each controller automatically switches back and forth between offense and defense after each half inning. NOTE: After each out the next batter will step up to the plate automatically After the third out in an inning the computer will show you the line score before switching sides. IT DON'T MEAN A THING IF YOU AIN'T GOT THAT SWING Press the Control Pad Left or Right to move the batter closer to or away from the plate. Press the A Button to swing the lumber.

Base Wars Batting Rule: If you are hit by a pitch while swinging your bat, you will be awarded first base. 19 BASE RUNNING FOR YOUR LIFE To advance a base runner, press and hold the Control Pad Left, Right, Up or Down and press the B Button. (Right = first base, Up = second base, Left = third base, Down = home plate.) However, if you're caught in a run down and want to return to a base, hold the Control Pad in the desired direction and press the A Button. PLAYING THE FIELD When a ball is hit in play, use the Control Pad to guide the nearest robot to it Once he has the ball, press and hold the Control Pad in the direction of the base you want to throw to. Press the A Button to throw to that base. 20 BATTLING FOR BASES (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH BOWLING FOR DOLLARS) Every force out play or close put out attempt is followed by a one-on-one battle between the runner and the fielder for possession of the base. When it's combat time, the screen will automatically change to battle mode. Each robot has a certain number of weak spots that must be hit in order to defeat it. The three digit HP number indicates Hit Points. This number drops every time a robot is clobbered by his opponent. The lower the number gets the more repairs he'll need. If you let the number reach 0 the robot will go kaboom! and he goes on the disabled list until the next game. If three robots on either team are knocked out the game is over. If your robot is equipped with a weapon, press the A Button to beat, cut and thrust. Press the B Button to kick, launch a jump attack or execute a Riveting Revolution attack. To engage an especially damaging attack sequence, press the A and B Buttons simultaneously; then while the robot flashes press the A or B Button (depending on what kind of robot it is).
