    This is merely a list of courses and machines available in the Japanese
    versions of F-ZERO GX and AX. Nothing more, nothing less. Nothing special!
    
    NOTE: This list is based on the JAPANESE versions of F-ZERO GX and F-ZERO AX.
    Any changes that were made for the overseas versions of these games (U.S.,
    Europe, etc.) are beyond my control. Sorry!

    REVISION HISTORY:
    
    Version 1.4: Added a bunch of new info to the Unlocking Stuff section. Also 
    fixed the names of a couple of AX courses.
    
    Version 1.3: Updated the Unlocking Stuff section. New info on Sonic Oval, etc.
    
    Version 1.2: Moved Dark Schneider over to the GX list (accidentally had him in
    with the AX machines).
    
    Version 1.1: Reformatted the machines lists, added the GX courses, and made a
    new section for explaining how to unlock stuff.
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    1. UNLOCKING STUFF
    
    - DIAMOND CUP:
      
       Finish first on STANDARD or EXPERT in the RUBY, EMERALD and SAPPHIRE CUPs.
    
    - MASTER CLASS:
    
       Finish first on EXPERT in the RUBY, EMERALD and SAPPHIRE CUPs.
    
    - DARK SCHNEIDER (hidden machine - no relation to Peer):
    
       Finish all nine chapters in STORY MODE.
    
    - BAHAMUT (special machine):
    
       Bring the license card that was packed in your F-ZERO GX package to the
       arcade and pop it in. You'll need to save your data to a GC Memory Card, of
       course. Bahamut is basically a core body useful for upgrading with parts
       you obtain at the shop. You can check out its data below in the F-ZERO AX:
       MACHINES section.
      
    - AX COURSES (for use in GX): **UPDATED**
    
       Place first in an AX course in the arcade and then save your progress to
       your GC Memory Card. The next time you play GX, that course will be
       available to purchase at the Item Shop. Once opened, you can race these
       courses as part of the AX CUP in every mode aside from GRAND PRIX.
    
       NOTE: Placing first in MUTE CITY: SONIC OVAL will NOT unlock it in GX. See
       below for info on how to make it available in GX.
    
       OR........!!!
    
       Finish all four CUPs in GRAND PRIX mode on MASTER CLASS.
    
    - AX MACHINES (for use in GX): **NEW**
    
       Simply choose any of the 10 AX machines as your racer in an AX game and
       finish the race. Doing so will allow you to purchase said racer at the
       GX Shop.
    
       OR........!!!
    
       Finish the GX STORY MODE chapters on VERY HARD difficulty. Although I have
       yet to personally confirm this, I've received dozens of e-mails about it
       from readers with far more patience and skill than I'll ever have, so I'll
       take their word for it. :)
    
    - AX CUSTOM PARTS (for use in GX): **NEW**
    
       Purchase these from the AX Shop once you've accumulated enough Pilot
       Points to buy stuff. Pretty simple.
    
       OR........!!!
    
       Finish the GX STORY MODE chapters on HARD difficulty.
    
    - AX CUP (in GRAND PRIX mode):
    
       Once you unlock all of the AX courses for play in GX (see above), you can
       play the AX Cup in GRAND PRIX mode as well. 
    
    - MUTE CITY: SONIC OVAL (for use in GX):
       
       Place first in the AX CUP in GRAND PRIX mode (any difficulty) to unlock the
       final AX course, MUTE CITY: SONIC OVAL. This course is playable in every
       mode except for GRAND PRIX.
