[1] Introduction
** Explains briefly what this FAQ could offer.

[2] Symbols to number assignments
** Conversion used for the numbers /\ to X - 0 to 3.

** A handy reference for making Lomax Passwords. Basically a table of
repeating patterns involving the numbers 0(zero) to 3(three). Well,
lets just say that our number system may look weird from time to
time.

** A brief explanation with examples on how to make Lomax Passwords
to transport us into the desired level, alongside with the desired
number of lives and continues...

[5] The "[+|-]" sign...
** We use this notation to compute for some patterns.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
** This game has an eight-character password system composed of the
three basic playstation symbols (/\, O, [], X). Each password
string encapsulates the STAGE, number of LIVES and CONTINUES.
This FAQ should enable everyone to create and modify Lomax pass-
words using the numbers 0 to 3...

| [2] Symbols to number assignments                               |
-------------------------------------------------------------------
** To avoid confusion we'll be using this assignments for each basic
Playstation symbols:
--------------------
|  Symbol   |Value |
--------------------
|  Triangle |  0   |
|  Circle   |  1   |
|  Square   |  2   |
|  X        |  3   |
--------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------
** Since the construction of the password string is eight-characters
of a selecion for 4 figures then each password string should
revolve/rotate between the numbers 0 to 3 while dividing itself
from some divisible to 2, 4, 8, 16, and so on figures...

| [4] Making Lomax Passwords                                      |
-------------------------------------------------------------------
** In order for us to build an eight-character Lomax Password we are
allowed to chose one shape/value from those 4 playstation shapes
(respectively numbered from 0 to 3) for each character that forms
the string. We would need to give 3 values before we could start
making our desired password - 1) what stage; 2) how many lives;
30 how many continues - do we really want. Lets say we would want
to create the password that would take us to
<stage 16; with 0 Life and 1 continue>:

Heres how:
1st character/shape: B3 [+|-] L5
2nd character/shape: Reverse [+|-] B2 [+|-] L1
3rd character/shape: B1
4th character/shape: B2
5th character/shape: B4 + L4
6th character/shape: L2
7th character/shape: L3
8th character/shape: Continues

So we want to go to stage 16 with 0 Life and 1 Continue...

The first password character would be derived from B3 [+|-] L5:
Basing on our Password Table above, B3 for stage 16 would be 3;
L5 for 0 Life would be 2. So 3 [+|-] 2 would result to 1. So we
now have 1 for our first character; and 1 would be coverted to
the Circle symbol says our Symbols to number assignments.

Our second character would be derived from
Reverse [+|-] B2 [+|-] L1: We check again our Password Table;
thus, 3[+|-]3[+|-]0. Our second character woul result again to 1.

Then B1 and B2 would be 3...

We'll derive our 5th character from B4+L4...
B4 which is 1 + L4 which is 0 would be 1... And so on...

If we follow the above how-tos we would get the password for
stage 16 with 0 Life and 1 Continue...

We would get this result: 1 1 3 3 1 3 1 1 =
Circle Circle X X Circle X Circle Circle

-------------------------------------------------------------------
| [5] The "[+|-]" sign...                                         |
-------------------------------------------------------------------
** Add the numbers if the result would be 3 or less...
Subtract if the result would be more than 3...
