Alter A.I.L.A. Genesis takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. You play the role of a young man known as Leon, who seeks to survive in the harsh environment he is brought into.

Exploration is done mainly via a side-scrolling view. In certain areas, an exclamation mark will sometimes appear, indicating the presence of hostiles. Press Z when this happens to initiate battle, or wait to let it pass. Sometimes battle will be unavoidable. When walking, enemy encounters won't occur.

The battle system revolves mainly around each character's Abilities, which are a set of commands specific to that character. Abilities require AP and EX to use. AP is gained every time a character takes a turn. The default is 2. EX is gained every time a character uses an Ability. The default is 1. Note that this may change depending on the situation.

"Known Glitches"
Due to the limited functionality of the RPG Maker 2003 engine, there are various glitches and bugs which are unfortunately unfeasible or impossible to fix:
- Sometimes during an action, the battle data of a character will be temporarily overwritten with another character's, causing them to not perform as expected for that round.
- In certain cases, player actions can be interrupted by the enemy or other character's actions. To minimize the occurance of this, wait for current actions to finish before selecting an action with another character.
- Using items and guarding doesn't trigger the code to check for enemy deaths. You need to actually use an ability, or let the enemies take a turn.
- Although not a bug, Active Mode should be changed to Passive Mode in the in-game menu to prevent enemies from acting while you are taking an action.

"Hints and Tips for Boss Battles"
- Don't expect to just be able to spam regular attacks until you can use your Exceed ability. You won't win an attrition war with the enemy party.
- Always target the enemy's weakness if you can. If you want, think of this as a Shin Megami Tensei game. :P
- Make sure to keep your HP up. The vast majority of bosses have pretty powerful high EX costing abilities that'll wipe out your party if you're not expecting it.

- That said, keep in mind, the enemy is subject to the same rules as the party. In other words, they're also gaining AP and EX, and they also need it to use their more hard-hitting abilities. So if you can prevent them from using them while still retaining the ability to use yours, you'll be able to beat any boss.
- You can tell how much EX an enemy's ability uses by looking at the name of the ability. Similar to your character's abilities, it'll show up as the number of squares on the left side of the name.
- Of course, the above passes quickly so isn't that reliable of a method. As a general rule, you can expect that:
- Anything that uses an element other than Force likely costs at least 1 EX
- Anything that does multi-targetting likely costs at least 1 EX
- Anything that hits everyone hard probably costs 2 or more EX
- Anything that outright kills someone from full health, or makes you swear "Bullshit! That can't happen!" is likely an Exceed ability.
- Chances are it'll also be very flashy.
- Obviously, there's going to be some exceptions, but for the most part, this can be followed.

- Don't ignore Field Effects either. Bosses don't, and the Field Effects they use generally stack things in their favor. It's not just about dealing as much damage as quickly as you can. A lot of times, it's also about controlling the situation.
- Modes, Field Effects, and Boost ailments all stack. If you're creative, you may be able to create a situation where you can pretty much negate everything the boss throws at you, while tossing out Exceed abilities every turn. Bosses won't stand a chance.

MAP SAVE FREEZE: If you're changing things in this game in the editor and your save file freezes on the world map as a result, press F9, go to switch 112 and 113, and turn them both OFF. That should fix it.

It does have something to do with the Personal Device, but it's not that random. ;)


Nah, I didn't really think anyone would find it unless I gave some hints. Actually I kinda regret giving as many hints as I did. It would've been more interesting if that was revealed when AAV came out. Kinda like a "Yep, that's been there all this time" kinda thing.
I'll just say that G-Bot gives you a really big hint in one of his questions.

Oho, I see it now! I had forgotten about that; I assumed it was talking about Orbital Prison level 3 for some reason.


I assume that the answer is that activating your Personal Device (therefore "breaking the fourth wall") sets "Orbital Prison ???" to a random number between 1 and 6, and then you have to go through whatever door has the background in it or something? I must admit, that is indeed quite clever, yet surprisingly obvious now that I realize it! XD Good job. Did you seriously expect anyone to figure it out on their own, though?
Ohhhhhhh... whoops
Yah, those be mine.

Edit: Okay, fixed now. Thanks for letting me know.
Oh, no I mean the ones that come with the open source version. Missleboater seems to have provided five saves for it (or are those yours?).
Haha, curiosity got the better, huh? There's definitely a way to get in there, but me outright saying it would just ruin the mystery. I'll just say that G-Bot gives you a really big hint in one of his questions.

Okay, I guess I'll post a warning about the save files as well as hide all the spoilers. They're only there for people who want them anyways.

For the darksides.. nah, I just thought they were cool. Drum it up to more of that scary nonsense that Orbital Prison puts you through.
Well, I finally decided to wuss out and


look at the secret room in the Maker. I was honestly quite surprised at that plot twist, and will eagerly await its resolution in Variant, especially since I was wondering what role Violet would have in the plot, since like Solitayre said, she's a rather bland character.

I do have to ask, though, how are you supposed to get there exactly? I've been puzzling over it by looking at the doors, and it seems like you need to reduce "Orbital Prison ???" to less than 7, but I don't see any way to do that. I presume that, due to the "We don't need eyes to see" quote, you're supposed to go through the doors that have backgrounds in them? (Because you're kind of going into another dimension, kind of...?) I don't see how you could break the fourth wall in there, though...


By the way, though I am infinitely grateful for the extra save files, why did you include them? They are full of spoilers and can overwrite the save files one has already made if one tells WinRAR to replace everything, like most people do with patches...

Edit: Also by the way, I can't believe I just thought of this now, but did you ever intend for the Darksides to have more of a story explanation like in the original? Since currently, they're just random inexplicable superbosses, like everything else in the postgame...

@Duncan, oh that's an error apparently inherent to RM2k3's default battle system. No one knows why it happens or how to fix it.

@ComX, it's the hideout in Ceres City, the one in Isle. Not the one in Pallas.

Well i posted the fix, so all is OK, but i find odd that such a big thing was not fixed earlier on RM2K3

@ Duncan: I believe someone already answered this earlier. Around page 20-25 possibly. Since you know their general area, though, you shouldn't have too much trouble -- though I remember some are very cleverly hidden. Try beating the Street Tournament -- the final reward may be useful in locating them. You could also try YouTube if you're really stuck.

@ CommanderX: Didn't you listen to Tinder? He's in the abandoned factory the first time as a random encounter. Get to an area where you hear mechanical clanking. I forget where he is after that, but Tinder should tell you.



Well, I would like to visit Tinder in his hideout, but the problem is, there is no hideout.
I checked map like 30 times, and there is no tinder hideout to visit, how I can unlock it or find it ?
picture of the error i mentioned;


ok i killed jakes shadow i still do not know what the problem is but here is the workaround: instead of facing the shadows on phase VIII/IX warp back to phase VI

Yeah, it's either Main Prison or Entrance in Stynx. Talk to the people there and one of them will unlock the way to NML 3.

This is kind of obscure (are there any hints for it, Neok?), but if you explore around the Main Prison area in Stynx you should find the directions to it.
How do i gain acess to no man land 3?, and since it seems that in every chamber there is a sphere there will be a shadow it will help to reduce the troubles.

two new glitches, on some random battles the game will eneter onto an auto mode and i am unable to control my characters, nut sure if it has to do with some of my edits (i am 60% sure that i never activated auto death) the other is more easy to check NEVER select a phase while you are on a lader it will glitch the game BADLY

i think there is a problem with rpgmaker it crashed on jake shadow figth

neok there is a problem i cannot find the rest of the cast shadows... the only ones that are present are the RMAYG, i get an error that rpg maker 2003 cannot acess some areas, what is this? also i have two versions, the altered one by me and the untouched one downlaoded from here i cannot seem to find the rest of the shadows in the data base

i am more confused i found the shadows but as bosses for phase 6
@Duncan Check Missileboater's guide videos http://www.youtube.com/user/Missileboater#g/c/FBE1C95D58225D0C


All the shadows have shards near them, so just find videos for the areas indicated in the Pantheon.

You don't play with sound? :O You really should, the game's music is very good and hand-picked to be fitting for the scene. Do you listen to the music of other games you play (i.e. console games)?

I do for console games but i do not for PC and portable games.

can any one point me the exact site of where the shadows are i remember one on pallas and i got indy shadow down already
Ok, I m stuck in Alter AILA genezis.

I found all shards, unlocked all characters, and unlocked all characters ability and got into orbital prison 4.

And right now I spend like 6 hours looking for this Tinderbot MK III.

On youtube I saw only that he is in Harbor in the end.
And in here I also see that people say he is on Harbor in rebel base where you fight him.

But can someone please tell me, where I can find Tinderbot Mk III first and secound time, where ?

I found all jokers, finished they quest, but someone please tell me how I can start and finish tinderbot Mk III quest.

Some of your questions pretty much answer themselves man. Either that or you should've found the answer already because you've progressed far enough to have discovered it, based on your later questions. Figure out which ones you actually need to ask!

As for your direct questions, the first is for your interpretation, the second.. yes. :P

Joker locations:


One is in Stynx, in Red's old HQ; the door was locked before. It's in the Main Prison area. There's another cleverly hidden one in Core Shaft 2; you can find a video of its location on YouTube. There's also one in the Pathos sewer. Finally, there's one in Orbital Prison 3, but you won't be getting there for a long time, so don't concern yourself with it immediately.


ok i see thanks and i was wrong i only have a single joker done, the one of NM.

As for your other question:

This took me a while too. He's a random encounter; go to the screen where you can hear metal clanging around, and wait for an encounter to appear. As for the shadows, you've probably seen them already, in a way, assuming you've been exploring diligently; you can only activate the shadow battles if you have the Soul Mirror, though. You can also visit the Pantheon again to see their locations if you wish. Believe me, you'll know them when you see them.

Wonderfull i have to play with sound ¬_¬ i really do not like playing games with sound i usually put some music that i have stored on my PC.

If i had to make a guess i would say that the spheres that are floating at random are the shadow battles, where do i get said item? and where is the pantheon?

And also let me guess again for getting to orbital prision 3 i either need to solve a chain of events on earth or... kill bosses or have al characters.

Also how do i acess to the black sphere on the background near the end of no man land 2? since i found both the joker there and an underwatter passage one side let me to a shard the other... well to the other side and a huge black sphere on the background, i guess that is orbital prision, so how do i acess it?, as i have few jokers left now:

the one of orbital prision 3, the one of core shift area 2 and the one of the facility.

Oh and the quiz robot always shows up in places before a boss battle?



Finally two direct questions for neok, who has been very nice to help me, here they are:

First Indy=Aila? femalestorm absorbed her... and the description points 'absorbs HP, AP and EX' in other words is a broken skill...


*Will run via spell checker later
