III. Final Words, Credits and Additional Information

I would just like to thank-you for reading and hopefully using my FAQ on this
wonderful game. I hope you didn't find any problems or mistakes in my guide, if
so please e-mail me. My e-mails will be located at the bottom of this guide, in
the legal section.


William "Games Bill" Reynolds - This man has pretty much been the source of 
most of my games and game knowledge. He was the person who sold me the Shaq-Fu
game which was used in the writing of this Guide.

Andrew Howell (Ah the 2nd) - He was the man who introduced me to GameFAQs, 
which ended up being my favorite website. I have to thank him because if it 
wasn't for him, I wouldn't be writing this right now. Andrew also proof reads 
all of my work before submitting it. He is the master proof-reader.

ShaqFu.org - This website was used to get some information on this game.

Lastly, the genius who came up with Shaq-fu - All I have to ask is, what were
you on when you came up with this idea? Good work!


IV.   Legal Stuff

This is the section I have to write so people don't steal my work. But if anyone
actually would like to use my work on anything, like a website, just get in 
contact with me. Most likely, I will let you use it.
