    ====================
    Fortuna: A New Enemy
           [010]
    ====================
    
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 1    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Okay Now what you want to do is continue on, and the last destroyable enemy
    capital ship, right after Falco drops the bomb off for you, has a secondary
    hull compartment on the side, to the right of the giant glowy purple orb. Blow
    that up with lasers BEFORE blowing up the ship and it will drop S-flag #1. Fly
    through it to collect it.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 2    .|
     \_______________/
    
    When you get to the planets surface, blow up the first few enemies. After you
    go through the arch, head to the left and you will be able to take an alternate
    path. Blow up the tank, and then the mech after that contains the flag #2. Blow
    it up and take it.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 3    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Immediatly after that there will be a segment where Falco will be chased by
    baddies. Ignore him and shoot the tree branch to the Left of the third tree.
    The S-Flag #3 will pop out and you must fly through it to collect it.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 4    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Later on you will come to a tank base sort of place. You will see two forking
    railway tracks midway in the air, with a cargo train on it. Head to the right
    and down to ground level, to the right of the pillars. Blow up the barrel and
    take the flag #4.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 5    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Now head up and right and blow up the barrel on that's on a ledge to collect
    the flag #5. That takes care of the S-Flags for this level.
    
    
    ====================
      Katina: Frontier
        Base Battle
           [020]
    ====================
    
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 1    .|
     \_______________/
    Go about the level as usual until you get the Landmaster. Then blow up all the
    enemies until you come to an are with some baracks. Blow up all the nearby
    enemies and enter the baracks to the right of the one thats smoking. Shoot the
    invisible target near the end a couple times to make flag #1 appear.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 2    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Next, head in the Landmaster to the far right side of the map. Locate the
    large door you can blow away with The Landmaster's cannon and do so. Head
    inside and clear out all the enemies. There will be some three groups of blocks
    in here. One that is big and near the door. This is not the right group. You
    want thhe group in the middle thatlooks like a Tetris block. Hop on top of it
    and the single block furthest from the stack of two blocks has the flag on it.
    Shoot the invisible target to make the flag #2 appear.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 3    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Similarly, head over to the far left side and blow open the door. Clear the
    area of hostile presence and then in the far left corner, with the door being
    behind you, there will be two blocks. In between them is the invisible target.
    Shoot it to spawn Flag #3.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 4    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Head to the north part of the middle and hover with your landmaster up on to
    the ledge on the tower above the ledge. The Invisible target is there. Shoot
    it to make invisible flag #4 appear.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 5    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Head to the Right side of the map. Look around till you see the gigantic cannon
    pointing up at the sky. Head towards the front of it and at the bottom if it's
    front you will find an alcove with the invisible targe in it. Shoot it with
    your blaster to make flag #5 appear!
    
    
    ====================
    Sargasso Space Zone:
    Hostilities Revisited
           [W0.3]
    ====================
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 1    .|
     \_______________/
    
    From where you start, near the Arwings Initial position, turn to the left until
    you see an alcove to the right of the Arwing. Charge up your blaster and blow
    away the turret here. Now run up to where it was and charge up your blaster
    again. Point your gun at the nearby small door in the wall and fire six or
    seven shots into it to make the flag appear. Grab it.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 2    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Now head back towards your Arwing and hop onto the platform between it and you.
    Now point the opposite way that your Arwing is facing and look a little to the
    left. See those large white tanks? Head over there. Run up the ramp and waste
    all of the enemies up here. Now locate the nearby shelf/computer think in the
    wall and note the indentation in the middle. Point there and your blaster
    should highlight it. Fire six or seven shots to cause it to appear. Collect it.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 3    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Now head up the nearby ramp and blow up the barrel dropping enemies at the
    top as well as any enemies. Head up the ramp past that and make a left, then
    another left as you face the wall. Go a ways till you reach the next left.
    Take it. Hang another left when you get on the ring and then circle clockwise
    till you can take a right. Head to the center. Charge your blaster up all the
    way till it's red and blow the crate up. The S-flag will be inside Grab it.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 4    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Now locate the elevator (Huge pink glowy light beams) and take it up to the
    top. Wipe out the army up here and head into the small room. Take out
    everybody inside, (Explosives will do nicely) and look at the nearby large
    monitor. Aim just under it with your blaster and you will notice something
    invisible is highlighted again. Shoot it 4 or 5 times with your blaster to
    make the flag appear.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 5    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Now head out in your Arwing. Head to the right-most part of the map. See the
    asteroid on the map in the middle vertically and farthest on the right. The one
    that is one left and one up from the farhest right one has a robot on it. Shoot
    the robot and the flag will pop out. Drive through it to collect it.
    
    
    ====================

    ====================
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 1    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Okay, as you start, head towards the center bearing a little to the left. Note
    the grey battlement/tower looking thing. Near the base of that is an invisible
    target. Shoot it to uncover Flag #1 and stag it.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 2    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Head back to the Landmaster. Head over ot the first Sheild generator and
    Destroy it like normal. Head to the nearby bridge. There should be two
    containers near the bridge. The invisible target is above the one to the left.
    shoot it to reveal the Flag #2 and claim it as your own.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 3    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Now head to the south-east portion of the map  near where the shield generator
    was/is and there will be a tunnel filled with slippery ice that you can slide
    on. The invisible target is in the middle. Shoot it to reveal Flag #3 and take
    it.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 4    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Now head to the Northeast corner and you will find another large patch of
    slippery ice and a shiny silver crystal in the middle. Near the crystal is the
    invisible target. Blast it to claim Flag #4.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 5    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Now, disable the shield, and once it is disabled head to the west side of the
    middle structure. Right above the entrance you will find the invisible target
    with your Landmaster. Use the Landmaster's cannon to shoot it until it becomes
    visible and then hover up to get Flag #5.

    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 1    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Soon after the asteroid field at the begining of the level,Falco will give you
    a bomb as you are fighting a powerful ship. Use Charge shots on the ship to
    kill it. Soon afterwards you will be faced with a whole bunch of groups of weak
    enemies. Clear them out and you will be faced with four more of those spinny
    enemies that shoot green blobs. The top one contains the S-Flag #1. Destroy it
    and collect the flag.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 2    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Once you get to the end of the worm field you will be attacked by a slew of
    asteroids that are really aparoids. They will try to ram you, but instead of
    avoiding them, you need to shoot them. The one at the end on the Center-left
    top contains the S-Flag #2 Shoot it and fly through the flag to collect it.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 3    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Continue on and you will find a base. You will be forced you to pull "up." You
    will  have to save Falco again, and kill off the enemies on this stretch. When
    you get to the top that prototype enemy from the first level will pop out.
    Ignore it for now and pummel the purple glob of goo to the left as the S-Flag
    #3 is there in an invisible target. Fly through the flag to collect it.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 4    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Now, just ahead Slippy will need to be saved, but there is an S-Flag on the
    left, inside of one of those spinny enemies that shoot green blobs. Kill it and
    claim the S-Flag. This makes S-Flag #4.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 5    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Directly after you save Slippy, the doors will be open and there will be a
    whole bunch of drone enemies on the ground. Ignore them and pummel the purple

    enemies and head to the end of the tunnel. There will be a wooden door at the
    end. The invisible target is right there. Shoot it to claim S-Flag #2.

    bend, until you can turn further right into another temple. Head inside and
    slay the nearby enemies. Locate the stairs and get on the roof. In the eastern
    corner, on the ledge, is the next invisible target. Shoot it to claim the third
    S-Flag.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 4    .|
     \_______________/

    Shoot it a few times to make the next S-Flag appear, and claim it. This is the
    second S-Flag.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^

     \_______________/
    
    Now, head all the way to the far Northeast area of the stage and you will find

    the enemies here. Now there will be some orange rectangles on the ground. The
    one to the east has the invisible target over it. Shoot the target to make the

    Now, head back up and out of this area. Once you get out and are crossing the
    laser bridge, keep going strait through the next door and past the blue glowy
    pillar. Wipe out all the enemies in this next area, and head down to the next
    floor and there will be an exit. Take it and there will be a pink door blocking
    the way. Use your fully charged blaster to get it out of the way and head out.
    Hang a right as soon as you get out the door and kill the turret. Continue on
    down that path and hang another right. Directly after this right there will be
    an invisible target. Shoot it to make S-Flag #3 pop out. Snag it!

    Now go back and get your Arwing. Head to the Northeast part of the base. In the
    very center of the large green platform there is an invisible target. Blast it
    with your laser and fly through it to claim S-Flag #4!
    
    ^~~_____________~~^

    Now, fly to the Southwest corner and kill all the enemies on the platform
    before landing. Once you have landed, blow open the door and head inside. When
    given the choice, go left. When you reach the oval room with some weapons and
    junk in it, head left again, and then hang another left. Once you get to the
    end of this long area, take another left into a large room, and take a left as
    soon as you enter until you get near the end, then hang one final left to the
    alcove, and slay the invisible target for the fifth and final S-Flag!

      The Final Battle

    Okay, soon after the second or so sharp curve into a tunnel after Starwolf
    shows up, you will be in a tunnel with moving plates that can smash you. Past
    them is a thing that launches fighters that looks like a giant drill pointed at
    you. Shoot the center of it to get the first S-Flag.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 2    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Soon after that you will reach a tunnel where there will be blue blobs of glowy
    goo shooting globs of green goo at you. They will be all over the top, right,
    and bottom, but curiously are not on the left. Near the left there is an
    invisible invisible target. Shoot that area on the upper left to make the
    S-Flag #2 appear. Snag it.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 3    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Now, soon you will fight a tough enemy that takes a lot of damage, and soon a
    lot of groups of weak enemies. Right after them a shield will start to cover
    the path with only a few ways to get through. The opening on the top right(not
    the tiny one all the way to the top right, the full sized hexagon shaped
    opening to the top right.) has the flag, so apply your brakes and shoot there
    a lot before flying through until the flag appears. Collect S-Flag #3.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 4    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Soon you will come to an area that is a tunnel blocked off by spinning blades
    that are spinning around walls that have three holes in them. After the first
    spinning blade, on the bottom left, will be a turret. Shoot it and the S-Flag
    #4 will pop out. Grab it and continue on.
    
    ^~~_____________~~^
    |.   Flag # 5    .|
     \_______________/
    
    Soon you will be in a long tube filled with many three sided spinning enemies.
    Blow up ones on the very right and after about the third one on the right, you
    will find the S-Flag #5.
    
    Congratulations! You have all 50 S-Flags!
