-Legend Of Zelda : Spirit Tracks- F.A.Q v1.0 (Read before posting.)

#1SpazetPastroniPosted 12/15/2009 12:03:42 PMmessage detail
Okay, since no one else seems to care enough to do this, I'll be making this short FAQ just to try and lower the number of topics like "Where do I take....."
"How do I do.....?" etc. So if you can just give this a read, and if your question still isn't answered here, then you can post and if I'm on I'll happily answer
your questions :D.
Also be prepared for some spoilers, but if you came to this board seeking help, you've probably already spoiled the game for yourself :|.

Q: -Insert Song/Lokomo name here- Is hard!
A: I don't see why you people keep posting this, yes we get it, it's not like a puzzle where we can actually help you solve it, but hell a question deserves an answer, here are a few tips
1) Try to blow gently , not too far from the screen but not on top of the mic either, just a moderate distance from the screen should do.
2) Wait until the camera pans onto link before you start playing.
3) Try and see what your doing wrong, also RHYTHM MATTERS!
4) Don't practice on practice mode, if you did it right in practice mode and went over to normal mode to try it again, and you didn't do it you'll get frustrated.
5) Don't try and do it while your angry, I've found myself SPITTING at my DS from rage, as if it was an actual person insulting me, take this nice and calm.
6) In the end all you can really do is try, try again until you get it done.

Q: How many arrows / bombs can I hold?
A: 50 and 30 respectively.

Q: How do I kill those evil blue trains?
A: All you can do is avoid them, evil aren't they?

Q: How do I get 8 hearts on my train?
A: You need the full Golden set.

Q: OMG THERES NO GOLDEN CANNON OR PASSENGER CAR WTF?!
A: Calm down, they are named Brawny Cannon and Royal Passenger Car.

Q: How do I beat ???? boss
A: I would have included this, but there is a boss faq posted by ZeldaDungeon, give it a check and if you still can't figure it out, post here I'll gladly help you out.

Q: How many Heart containers can I have total?
A: 16

Q: Where do I get the -Insert Item Here-?
A: Read the first part of the FAQ.

Q: I FORGOT TO DO A SIDEQUEST OMG!!!!!!!!!1
A: You can do sidequests anytime you want, you can beat the game first if you really wanted to.

Q: Okay well I tried to do the sidequest after I beat the game but I lost my passenger :'(.
A: Well you can always go back and re-try so it's no problem.

Q: How do I make Zelda (Phantom) drop something?
A: Hit her.

Q: OMG TOUCH-SCREEN SUCKSS!!!!
A: Thanks for adding so much culture to our boards :D.

Q: NO I MEAN IT THEY SUCK I CAN'T BEAT SLIPPERY STATION!
A: Ahhh I see, well try rolling on the patches of soft ground, and try not to turn too late, rolling is really what gets you past that last level.

Q: Whats an easy way to get treasures?
A: The Pirate hideout mini-game is an acceptable method, it yields abundant treasure for free, you can also use the Postcard method to get rare treasures, just buy 20 postcards and mail them in, advance your DS clock 24 hours and collect your prize.

Q: I can't do the Dark Ore quest, what am I doing wrong?!
A: (According to the map) First defeat the giant spider crab thing you encounter when you first go down the south part of the Dark ores path, Than get some dark ore, pass through the cave without getting hit, go into the = warp to come out on the other = warp and take the + warp to come out on the other + warp, it should be pretty easy now.

Q: Wait what?! + Warp? = Warp? wtf?
A: http://guidesmedia.ign.com/guides/14333936/images/map800final.jpg I did say according to the map :|.

Q: I can't get the ocean lokomo down! and I think he's laughing at my feeble attempts at hitting him down >:(.
A: You have to play the Song of Birds, First play the Song Of Discovery near the palm tree he's at to get the Song Of Birds, than use that :D, also he's not laughing at you he's laughing with you.
