Use this thread for any and all questions that are easily answers in one post.
Things like "where is X?" or "how do I unlock Y?" are appropriate for this thread, as are questions like "how does Z work?" and the like.
What is not appropriate for this thread are questions like "what is your favourite X?", "why do you suck?", and opinions or suggestions. That type of feedback has it's own thread.
So, let's start. I would like this to be a communal Q&A and everyone can help out the new members. If this thread gets long enough I'll have to add some kind of page-system, but for now it should be fine. Thanks for playing!

I forgot to mention this but a check at my database shows. link I cannot find Astro Man, Aqua Man, Dynamo Man, Ground Man, or Pirate Man. I think these aren't in the game.
EDIT: How do you get the element busters? (ex. Crystal Buster) I saw someone with Jewel Man in Player Battles. How? EDIT2: More research shows that AccelMan is the only player with Jewel Man. Even more, AccelMan also is the only one with Crystal Man. AccelMan also does not have any field stars, which is weird because AccelMan has fusion stars. AccelMan's mission history states that his Dr.Light has faced off Skull/Jewel, Crystal, and Toad/Bass. The 1st two are self explanatory, but what is Toad/Bass? I looked at my profile but all I found was that even though my Dr.Light to Dr.Wily usage ratio is 20:55, it says I use Dr.Light the most. AccelMan profile Next, there are several profiles like this but I will use charrigan's, at the very bottom. charrigan's robot page says that he has 2 robots, Mega Man and Proto Man. How do you get Proto Man without Bass? Next, Proto Man is with Dr.Wily. Dr.Cossack is not unlocked. How do you get Proto Man and move him to Dr.Wily without unlocking Dr.Cossack? I can't check to see if charrigan has the Wily Code because his items tab is gone. Both robots are level 1. How can you get a Proto Man at level 1? Mega Man and Proto Man have their respective busters, even though they don't get them until level 2 and 22. They both oddly have exactly 999 exp. Same with Dr. Light and Dr. Wily who both have exactly 1,999 exp. EDIT3: Notably Gravity Man's Database Page says that no one has Gravity Man, yet he has been summoned 1 time. Gyro Man has been summoned 5 times, yet no one has him. Star Man has 8 summons and yet no one has unlocked him. No one has unlocked Flame Man yet he has been summoned 4 times. Same with Wind Man. No one has unlocked Yamato Man, yet he has been summoned 9 times. Slash Man has 1 summon, yet no one has him. No one has Search Man, yet he has been summoned twice. Hornet Man has 1 summon, yet no one unlocked him. 4 times Magma Man has been used, yet no one has him. 25 summons for Galaxy Man and no one has him. 9 summons for the unowned Blade Man. 2 summons for the untamed Commando Man Solar Man has been summoned 6 times, yet no one has him. Where did all of these encounters defeats and scans of Quint come from? EDIT7: Adrian has Quint in his database for some reason. EDIT4: Why don't I get BP from Player Battles? What decides the amount of hits Top Spins gets? Why does the players panel say that none of my doctors obtained any battle points? What decides the multipliers and fields in Player Battles? Why did my rank increase when I didn't gain any battle points? EDIT5: How do I get overdrives? Is there any punishment for selling stars? Why does my Proto Man and Toad Man have 4 stars? Why is Slash Claw Neutral instead of Cutter? EDIT7 (not a mistake): Why is Flash Man immune to Time attacks? He is vulnerable to his own weapon in Mega Man 2. How much damage does starforce add? Why is Proto Man Dr. Cossack's robot? EDIT8: How do I give robots Copy and Neutral cores? EDIT9: When making the guide, I noticed Toad Man briefly had a dot near his name until level 100. What is that dot? Why can the computer swap stats with anyone but I can't? What gave the idea of Omega Influence?
Actually, another way to get the Elemental Buster weapons is to gather Cores of certain types from robots (I think there's a chance of them dropping through defeat by weakness, if I'm not getting my facts wrong) or collecting 4 core shards from mechas to get a full core (Required for Laser and Shield since there are currently no Robot Masters of those core types in-game), and then sell them to Reggae. Sell enough cores of the type matching the elemental weapon you want (Ex. Cutter Cores for Cutter Shot, Cutter Buster, and Cutter Overdrive) and you should be able to buy the weapons from Reggae.
It really depends on how you want to obtain it. Do you want to A. Use Copy Shot and hope that not only you are fast enough to copy it, but also that the robot uses that weapon? Or B. Grind Cores and even Core Shards for Laser/Shield Cores (from Beaks and Sniper Joes, respectively) and sell them to unlock and pay for them through hard-earned Zenny?
Both to me seem equally tedious, but hey, your choice.

@Yoshi2018 : I encountered AccelMan But I already Reported him anyway since he Owns Jewel Man and Crystal Man
The only thing I have against your argument Is probably charrigan never played the game in a while And Bass back then wasn’t programmed. But the whole remake scoreboard thing kinda Make everyone confused...
Well, I don't know, The stats pretty balanced at moment and working smoothly so far for now. I ain't sure if anything needs changes. About the frequent boost in battle, the stats of the boost get automatically rest after you finish the stage to the original max stats.
Why can the computer swap stats with anyone but I can't? What gave the idea of Omega Influence? What decides the multipliers and fields in Player Battles? What is community rating and how do I give it?

@Marko RUS :
"As a result of her growing studies, Kalinka has been depended increasingly on scanning stars for the sake of furthering her research. Due to this, she’s asked the player doctors to bring in their stars whenever able for scanning, and she’s offered an incentive to get them to do so. Stars can now be scanned for trade of large sums of Zeni, providing a benefit to Zeni-struggling players out there. While previously stars could be sold for cash, this has been reevaluated; asking the player to sell their hard-earned Starforce, even for high prices, was unfair in retrospect. In contrast to this, scanning your stars will not cause the star to be lost from your collection for the sake of convenience (there’s that word again!) It’s worth noting that the stars’ price will often vary on the condition and compact quality of the star itself, and as such fused fields in particular tend to offer higher prices compared to regular stars. There’s also another direct advantage to the process of scanning your stars, as scanning is essentially recyclable. Stars can be scanned up to multiple times for continued cash, after a fair amount of reprieve and time has passed for the star to be scanned again. As such, while having a plethora of stars can certainly speed up the process, users with smaller samples of stars can make effective use of this process too."
Is there an issue with Pharaoh Man? I have made several runs using only plain buster shots and yet he has not been added to my team. I've successfully acquired everyone else. Am I doing something else wrong, or is the game glitched?
@sycoblast69 : Hi, I just tested out the Pharaoh Man battle in an alt account and was able to unlock his data; however, this comes at the catch that I did have to replay the battle once since in the first battle he had somehow been lucked despite me only using Neutral moves...
So while it is possible, Pharaoh Man might be somewhat buggy as you noted. If you're unable to unlock him after any of your repeated playthroughs, I would recommend moving on from his battle and saving it for later to see if it works in the future. Of course, I'll make sure to bring it up with the rest of the staff and see if we can't examine the unlock process a little more to iron out a potential bug. Thank you for taking the time and effort to report this bug, and I'm sorry that this had to impede your playthrough of the Prototype >_>
