When looking at the game screen, a lot of information can be seen on the bottom of the screen. Here's a partial explanation of what everything does (my knowledge of kanji is craptacular). If anyone could explain the three gray buttons on the chat window, that'd be appreciated.
*edit* the programmable shortcuts are now number pad 0 to 9, F keys being used for weapon skills.
The status window is divided into three panels. Character stats, grades, and titles.
Quests (X or J):
Optional objectives that give some incentive to do more episodes. Sometimes a quest will require a minimum grade to an episode. It's not hard to spot since it's a lone capital letter.
Inventory (C or I):
Equipment panel is self explanatory. The items panel stores useful items (milk, upgrade materials, books, etc) as well as trash/elemental items. Elements are separated into 5 categories: fire, water, wood, earth, and metal/gold. Will be explained in the upgrading guide. Quest panel stores items needed to complete quests while the Special panel stores items bought with shopping points or items given during special events.
Cellphone (B or P):
Terribly clueless about this thing. I only know how to phone people. If you know their phone number, punch in the numbers and press the green Dial button. You'll have a few seconds for the recipient to accept the call. If the call connects, one of the cellphone chatrooms is used.
This is the club menu that the leader sees. I never experimented beyond adding people.
This is the screen you'll see when adding people. just put in their phone number. you can click the orange button to open up your cellphone if you want to add your friends
this is the menu you get when right clicking a member. I was going down the list, which is why you were kicked.
