C. WHAT YOU DO IN THIS GAME
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------
Well this game is rather unusual not only in appearance but in style.  I guess 
you could say that its sort of like a dancing game
like Bust A Groove or something but that doesn't quite explain it adequately.  
In this game you control a like ribbon man, 
basically a stick figure guy named Vib Ribbon.  Based on the music, a landscape 
is created for Vib to move across.  You 
have to press the right button to get past/over/through each shape.  As you take 
damage you devolve, from a rabbit-man thing to a short man to a worm, then 
you're dead.  if you do well then you evolve and get wings and a crown, who 
knows what else.
The cool thing about this game is that you can swap discs after the game starts 
and use your own music to create new levels
for Vib giving this game a nice replay value.  Its a good party game if you are 
somewhat adept with this type of thing or at least
have good rythym.

E. OPTION MENUS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------
for each of these i try to describe the words written in japanese as characters 
giving descriptions like the number of chars or
the shapes.


1. OPTION MENU ONE: MAIN
option one: two lines, the characters look like T's and 7's and there are alot 
of them
	this takes you to option menu two
option two: clockwise (press up) the next option has four characters
	this takes you back to the start screen (sounds like he says "mononit")
option three: next is an option with five characters
	takes you to option menu three (the acutal "options" menu) (sounds like he 
says "auction" but i suppose its "option")
option four: the last has two lines again and the letters look like ECD
	takes you to option menu four (you can hear him say "CD" if you listen 
close)
	this is if you want to use your own music cds to dance/move/or-whatever-
the-hell-he-does-exactly-to
	

2. OPTION MENU TWO: LEVELS
option one: two lines looks like 7X 
	this takes you to the game
option two: 4 characters looks like EVIL but with something else in place of the 
V
	back to previous screen
option three: 5 characters
	takes you to some weird option screen five
option four: two lines, looks like PY
	takes you to the game, different level, lots of stars
option five: two lines, looks like 77 kinda
	takes you to the game, another level, simpler, goes fast then slow


3. OPTION MENU THREE: OPTIONS
option one: two lines, first long, second 2 char
	if you press this the bottom char change, dont know what it does
	when you change it the first letter looks like a little T instead of a P
option two: four char, starts with E
	back to last menu screen
option three: looks just like option one but has a backwards E in it near the 
end of the first line
	same as option one and i dont know what it does


4. OPTION MENU FOUR: CD (most of these don't do anything until you insert your 
own music cd)
(this section will be updated soon)
option one: lots of char, looks like it starts with a backwards F
	takes you to a screen with a spinning circle and tells you to press X to 
leave
option two: four char, looks like it almost says EVIL
	back to previous screen
option three: five char, starts with an upside-down V and has a backwards C in 
it
	takes you to the weird options screen five again
option four: 3 char, has a minus sign in the middle
	this option, if you have a music cd in your PSX lets you choose the track 
and then makes vib go through the motions
	to the music.  you can still control him but he won't get hurt.
option five: 4 char, one has a degree symbol above it
	takes you to a menu that looks like menu 2 but gives options on the cd 
instead of the psx disc levels
	this is menu seven
option six: long line of char like the first, has a 7 with a hyphen above it and 
the second char is a minus sign


5. OPTION MENU FIVE: VIB'S BUBBLE
in the little bubble are 2 char, pressing left and right change these char.
default, 7X.  
press left once, 77
twice, PY (when you choose this one the #'s change)
press down and then O to leave


6. OPTION MENU SIX: PAUSE
ok well this really isn't exactly a pause screen 'cause if you get here you have 
to start the level over like in other rythym based
games (dancing)
two choices:
option one: 6 or 7 char starts with E - choose this to restart
option two: 4 char, has an X in it - choose this to quit
