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!

@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 >_>
@sycoblast69 : (Double posting is frowned upon here, please edit your post instead.) I remember having the same issue with Fire Man. My only help is to try over and over, or see if someone can fix it for you.
@Marko RUS : "2019 Game Update #2: The Great Battle Point Reboot of 2019 (2019/01/12) As part of a major update to the game's mechanics, all battle points and leaderboard standings have been reset and recalculated. Your score is no longer based on your turn count in missions, but rather the progress you've made in the overall game and the items, robots, abilities, etc. that you've collected. Please check the "Points" tab of your leaderboard profile for a detailed breakdown of where all your points are coming from. Additionally, you can check the Item Database page on the website for the BP values of every item in the game. All details and specific point values aside, the main takeaway from this update should be this; It is no longer required or necessary to OHKO every robot in a single turn in order to climb the leaderboard and doing so will affect nothing but how much zenny you earn from missions. Let us know what you think and/or any questions you have in the #game-discussion Discord channel or right here in the community. Thank you all for playing!"
