I didn't make it!
I know it's an old GBA game, but it's so addictive, and I'm OCD about getting 100% and I haven't stopped playing so I can get the support conversations. Well, here's my dilemma.
I've been using the arena to level up my characters in the mission where you get Natasha. All had been going good, the gold was flowing, I already leveled up 2 of my units, Vanessa and Seth to the max, and then it came to Franz, I got him to level..... 16 or 17, if my memory serves, and needed 3 or 4 levels to max him out. I took on an enemy in the arena and lost. I turned off my game, and resumed, and I keep losing him. Is there some trick that I have to do to cancel the match and save him. I've been trying this and have to restart every time one of them dies, and it's pissing me off. I got so far this time and I don't want to do it again.
If you're really OCD, doing all over again shouldn't bother you.
Either way, read all the walkthroughs you can get your hands on. Knowledge is power.
