********  0. INTRODUCTION  ******** 
Unlocking the 101 ships in R-type is an extremely time consuming and fun sucking 
experience, and that’s IF you can read Japanese. 
If you can't then it makes it impossible to decipher the requirements to unlock the various 
ships. This FAQ is meant to ease the pain a little so the hours that you will put in 
unlocking, will at least be guided. This is of course a guide for the Japanese (& Korean) 
versions of the game, Requirements for unlocking may be different for other releases. 

 
**********  1. UNLOCKING REQUIREMENTS  ********* 
 
Each unlockable ship has its own requirements for unlocking it. Many have multiple 
requirements, use the below key and guide to determine what you have to do. You will 
not be able to unlock a ship if its empty stand is not visible yet in the R’s Museum. Some 
of the fighters have ridiculously long flight time requirements to unlock them, to those at 
that point I suggest turning on invincibility (see the codes at the bottom of the FAQ), and 
then letting the game play itself, All the bosses are on timers and will Self Destruct or 
leave after an amount of time so all you have to do is come back and advance the game to 
the next level from time to time.

 
Key: 
N/A. = You have this fighter from the beginning of the game.
Password 1234 5678 = You must enter this password at the R-Museum screen.
Stage 1.1 = You must have cleared Stage 1.1

After #1 Exp 10 = After Unlocking #1 get 10 minutes of flight time with any fighter.
Exp 10 = Get 10 minutes of flight time in any fighter.
Exp 10 #11 = Get 10 minutes of flight time in fighter #11.
(“flight time” means the time you spend in the air playing the game)

So, After #51 Exp 61, Have #71, Stage F-A means: After Unlocking #51 get 61 minutes 
of flight time in any fighter, have already unlocked #71, have cleared Stage F-A.

********  4. HELP  ******** 
 
This took forever, and to get to the level of accuracy that you see here was a lot of work, 
there are still a few holes, on #’s 90 and 11, as well as the last two gallery entries.
Feel free to contribute if you have the info this FAQ needs. 


********  5. CREDITS  ******** 
 
Some information was taken from the Irem “Ura” (hidden) site:  
http://www.irem.co.jp/official/rfinal/ura/index.html
The rest was lots and lots of experimentation and work for you, you’re welcome.

v. 1.2 - 09/26/03 – Added gallery and made a few corrections.
v. 1.0 - 09/24/03 – Complete except for two hidden stage requirements. Way too many 
hours put into this thing, Good enough.
v. 0.2 - 09/18/03 – No one is helping so it looks like I’m going to have to do it all myself, 
thanks guys.
