|To Get Vincent Valentine in you party:|
To get Vincent Valentine,you have to go to the Nibelheim Shinra Mansion (not Cloud's dream.) Go in and up the stairs and then left. Then go to the room with the safe. The code is 36 10 59 97. If you do this correctly you have to fight a boss. IF you beat this boss with a physical attack it attacks physically and has better defense against regular attacks. If you defeat it with an elemental skill, it has better defense against elements (magi). If you beat this boss, get the key inside and you can get a new summon called Odin. After getting the key go to the basement and into the room that was once locked (the room with coffins) Press O when facing the closed coffin that looks different from the others. Open the coffin and talk to him. After you name him, finish talking to him and exit the room and turn left. Start going to the stairs and Vincent will go to you. He will say he wants to go with you if he finds Hojo. Finish talking to him and he'll be in your party.

southeast of Midgar there is a small cave with a man living there. Talk to him when you have battled a certain number of battles that end in the same number, such as 122, 133, 144. He will then give you a Mithril orb. Take the Mithril to the Blacksmith's house on the south peninsula near Cosmo Canyon.

In the Nibel area there is a mansion and on the second floor of this mansion there is a safe. To crack this code turn right 96, left 10, right 56, and right 7. Then the safe will open to reveal a miniboss. Kill the miniboss and ou will rcieve Red XIII's Manual.
Land near the waterfall and use the green, black, gold choobo or the submarine to paass the mountain. Then enter the waterfall. (You must have vincent in your group and must be done first in in disc 2) go forward and it will show Vincent's past. Then leave. Return if you are already in disc three and you'll get not only the manual but a wepon of Vincent.
Cid's manual is in one of the chests in the sunken plane.
Go to Wutai and enter the tower with yuffie and let yuffie beat all the bosses including her father and you'll get a manual and Laviathan materia.
At the top right hand side of the map is a craterlike island with a cave that can only be reached with an all terrain chocobo, inside is the best materia in the hole game, it'll make beating the game a piece of cake. PS. there are caves all over the world with special materia most can only be reached with specially bred chocobos.
At the chocobo farm go to the chocobos and press X then press WRAK. The chocobos will do a dance. After the dance you will get a Summom matria.
In Disc Two near the very end you'll find yourself in the sewers of Midgar again. When you end up there, move backward so that it seems Cloud is having a close up. You will go back a screen, continue this about 7 or 8 times and you'll come to a hallway with a cage, in front of you will be the yellow W-ITEM Materia.
If you are in Disc 3 and missed this, and this has worked for me, you can go to Bone Village and dig it up in the same area as the Midgar Key.
