Dreamcast Hints & Cheat Codes
Hints & Cheat Codes
Place either game disc in a PC compatible CD-ROM drive
and open the "master01.bmp" file.
While the game was in development, the game programmers
wanted to implement speech. However in the final version, the
speech was not included. The speech was only in the battle system.
Use the following steps to hear the voices that they were going
to use. Turn on the Dreamcast with no disc. When the system screen
shows up, go to CD player. You will see there is no CD when you
go in the CD player. While at the screen with the CD Player controls,
insert either game disc. When the disc is loaded in the CD player,
the Skies of Arcadia CD will appear. Select "Play" to
hear the hidden audio.
Hint: Finding Gordo's bar:
Go to map square E4.
Hint: Finding Glacia:
To find Glacia easier, look at the lands of ice. Most
of the ice is white, but within the white ice is one light blue
area. It is over the mountain when you discover the lights in
the sky -- go to the other side of where you are now (over the
mountain). In that side alone, look for a light blue area in the
ground containing a city frozen in ice. Note: This is very hard
to find because none of the tips of the buildings in the city
emerge from the ground.
Hint: Getting items from Ilchymis:
After finding Ilchymis, you can have her on your ship.
Return to Crescent Isle, so that you can give her some money.
She will build a boutique for you. The next time you return to
Crescent Isle you will be able to buy items from her. From now
on, buy all the items she has and give them to your party members
and to Vyse. After the first session of buying things for your
party, go outside then return back in again. You can now buy the
same items. Once again, load up your party then get out. Repeat
this as many times as needed. Check the menu to see if you have
99-9999 of items on your party members. Go into a ship battle
or ordinary battle with these skills. If the enemies will shoot
a magic spell on your team, the points will be 0 and you cannot
take much damage.
Hint: Secret Aika FMV sequence:
When you begin the game and pass the part with Alfonso's
ship, return to your island. Get out of the underground base of
Pirate Isle. Aika will say that she needs to freshen up a bit.
Go to her house, then face towards the door. Go all the way to
the left left until you see a clothesline. In that one corner
you will see, pasted on the wall of that house corner, a handkerchief.
Inspect the handkerchief and you will see a hidden FMV sequence
of how Aika looks with her hair down.
Hint: Secret specials:
You need the Delpinus and at least 5 crew members to
get these specials. Get your SP (spirit points) in battle to full
and a crew SP icon will appear next to the item. This enables
all of your active crew members to attack. Repeat these steps
to get another special. You need all 4 people alive for this.
This one combines the strength of all 4 people, and is the strongest
special in the game.
When Vyse has his own ship, he is able to look for 22 crew members
but you need at least 5 to do this. When you get 48 spirit points
in battle (not ship battle), you can choose to use the Crew Special.
It is the strongest in the game, depending what crew you have
active -- they can heal you as well as attack the opponent.
Hint: Easy level up:
After you go through the Dark Rift you will be able
to go back. After you finish off all the tasks and you have to
go around the world, go back to the Dark Rift and go to the exit.
You will see a large black Elooper which is stronger than Ramirez.
Get into battle with it and automatically use Vyse's Skull Shield,
Aika's Blocking Magic special, Drachma's Spirit Charge, and have
Fina Focus. Repeat until you get the Prophecy crew special and
use it. Keep doing this until it dies to get 7000 experience points.
Hint: Velorium location:
You may have heard Ryu-Kan talking about something
called Velorium. This is used to forge Vyse's bets weapon. It
is found in the Vortex (the place you found Fina's ship) after
Soltis rises. Use the radar until you hit something, then look
around. This may take some time due to the battles. When you
find a piece (there are two down there, but you only need one.
Bring it to Ryu-Kan and he will forge Vyse's best weapon.
Hint: Pirate Isle: Extra money:
Face Vyce's house, and to the left is a tombstone.
Observe it closely to notice that it looks strange at the center.
Press A next to it and the tombstone will open. You will
be on the underground base in a special area. There is a treasure
chest that contains some money there.
