1.0     Introduction
====================

F-Zero for Gameboy Advance is the latest instalment of Nintendo's F-Zero
series. The franchise started life on the 16 bit SNES nearly ten years ago,
then made it's way to the N64 as F-Zero X. This handheld version most closely
resembles the original SNES game. While not being an exact port (the game is
set in the F-Zero world 25 years after the original), it shares and plays the
same as the original, albeit with different tracks and craft.

The original version of F-Zero made use of the SNES graphics Mode 7, which
allowed games to appear 3D. Unlike modern day consoles and graphics cards, the
SNES was not a 3D machine (ie. It did not contain a geometry processor and
display polygons).

The Gameboy Advance possesses this same ability, and can therefore represent
the same sort of pseudo 3D gameplay (with the addition of sprite scaling, 
something the SNES did not originally have).

The version of F-Zero used to compile this guide is the Japanese release. Some
features may change in the western version (to be called F-Zero: Maximum
Velocity).

2.0     Starting The Game
=========================

Upon power up, after the GameBoy graphic the F-Zero logo appears on the screen.
Press Start to commence the game. Pressing Select or waiting approx 30 seconds
at this screen activates a demo which shows the basic craft controls.

If you pressed start, the next screen will show you the three name slots
available. As it suggests, up to three players may enter their names and have
their times tracked in the high scores table.

If your name is already there, use up and down on the D-Pad to position the
cursor next to the required slot, then press A. If your name is not on the
list, use down on the D-Pad to select the left hand menu option (entry), select
a spare slot, press A, then enter your name from the on-screen alphabet
(pressing A to select each letter). Select OK when done.

To delete a name, select the right hand option (clear) on the name slot screen,
highlight the slot you wish to delete (by pressing A), then select OK (this
will delete ALL records for this user including unlocked tracks and vehicles).

Holding the L and R shoulder buttons whilst switching the power on will present
the option to clear all game saved data. Select either Yes or No depending upon
your choice.

Like most Gameboy Advance software titles, the game may be reset at any point
by holding down the A, B, Start and Select keys together.

2.1     Menus
-------------

After selecting a name, a menu is displayed with the following options;
Game Start
Ranking
Option

2.1.1   Game Start
------------------

The main game has four menu options (five if you have completed all 15 tracks).
The options are as follows;

Grand Prix
Training
Multi Cartridge Vs
1 Cartridge Vs
Championship

2.1.2   Ranking
---------------

Ranking lists the best times for all tracks raced so far, either by individual
user (by selecting the relevant user name), or a composite of all users times
(by selecting the mix option).

2.1.3   Option
--------------

Here you may select the number of continues you get (either 5, 3 or 1), the
controller button layout, and the toggling of background music on and off.

2.2     The Controls
--------------------

Based upon the layout selected in the options screen, the button assignments
are as follows;

Type 1 - A=Accel, B=Brake, L+R=Boost
Type 2 - A=Brake, B=Accel, L+R=Boost
Type 3 - A=Accel, B=Boost, L+R=Brake
Type 4 - A=Boost, B=Accel, L+R=Brake
Type 5 - A=Accel, B=Brake, Up=Boost
Type 6 - A=Brake, B=Accel, Up=Boost

In all layout types, pressing the L and R shoulder buttons allows you to drift
left and right. The boost function will only work if you have a boost icon
available. The completion of each lap earns you an icon. There are three slots
available for boost icons.

2.3     Game Structure
----------------------

2.3.1   Grand Prix
------------------

The game structure in Grand Prix mode consists of three classes of track (Pawn,
Knight and Bishop), each of which contains three difficulty levels (Beginner,
Standard and Expert). Each class consists of 5 tracks.

The player selects a class of track and difficulty level, and attempts to
complete all 5 races. Each race is conducted over 5 laps. At the finish of each
lap the player has to finish above a certain position. This position increases
with each lap (positions required are 15th at the end of lap 1, 10th  at the
end of lap 2, 7th at the end of lap 3, 5th at the end of lap 4, and 3rd at the
end of lap 5). Failure to finish a lap at the required position or higher ends
the race. The player may retry the track until all continues have been
exhausted. The race can also finish early if the craft power is exhausted
before the end of the race.

When all tracks within a class have been completed on a given difficulty level,
the difficulty level text changes colour to green.

When a class has been completed on Expert, a new difficulty level called Master 
is unlocked for that class.

When a class has been completed on all difficulty levels, a gold chess piece 
indicating that class appears in the lower left of the selection screens.

2.3.2   Training
----------------

Training mode allows the player to practice on any track that has been
played on Grand Prix mode. The exception to this is where a class has not 
been played at all, in which case only the first track of that class is 
playable. You may select your type of craft, and have the choice of selecting 
a CPU opponent (both difficulty level and craft type are available should you 
want an opponent). You may then select the class of track followed by the track 
itself. Each training race consists of 5 laps. Best times are recorded.

2.3.3   Multi Cartridge Vs
--------------------------

Every track and every craft is available in multi cartridge versus mode. During
play, the players name is displayed above their vehicle!

2.3.4   1 Cartridge Vs
----------------------

F-Zero is the first Gameboy Advance title to feature this ability. Using only
one cartridge, up to four players connected with link cables can download a
course (which takes up to 30 seconds) and compete against each other. However,
this feature is limited to only one playable course and each player is assigned
the same craft (which is a different colour for each player). No music is
present.

2.3.5   Championship
--------------------

Only available once all 15 tracks have been completed, the Championship track
allows you to race against the ghost image of the current course record holder.
The second option on the Championship menu allows a replay to be viewed of the
current record braking run (this includes the display of button presses during
the replay).

2.3.6   Nintendo Co. official championship ranking conference 
-------------------------------------------------------------

Nintendo of Japan ran a competition via their website (www.nintendo.co.jp) to 
find the fastest F-Zero player. The competition was open from the 21st April 
to 31st May 2001. The top 3 players will win a limited edition 'Hot Violet' 
GBA!

The method of participation was as follows;

Prospective players must select a team to play for (each team has their own 
prizes for the top ranking members). Four choices are available, Team Mario, 
Team Famitsu, Team Dream and Team Dengeki.

The player must then register their details on the relevant teams website.

Once registered, the player must play the Championship Circuit and try to 
obtain the best possible time.

After completing the race, when the best times are displayed in the ranking 
screen for this course, hold down the left shoulder button and press Up, 
Right, Right, B, Left, B, Right, A. The course name on the screen will now 
change to a password.

Make a note of this password and enter it onto your teams website. Your time 
will then be registered.




2.4     Techniques
------------------

The following techniques must be mastered to advance through the tracks on the
harder difficulty levels. They assume that the Type-1 controller setting is in
use.

2.4.1   Fast Start
------------------

Getting the best start in F-Zero is not simply a case of holding down the A
button. The engine must be revved into the middle band (noticeable by the
engine noise, it is the sound immediately before the high pitched engine note
if you permanently hold down the A button). Whilst at this stage, release and
re-apply the A button to keep the engine at this mid-level. If still at this
point when the race starts, your craft will be propelled to the head of the
pack.

A simpler method is to hold down the accelerator button when the word READY 
flashes for the third time.

2.4.2   Cornering
-----------------

To corner effectively through the tighter turns it is necessary to release and
re-apply the A button while turning. It is also possible to use the L and R
shoulder buttons to aid in turning, but often the result is too severe leading
you to clip the side of the course and lose time.

2.4.3   Long Jump
-----------------

When hitting a jump pad it is possible to travel further in the air by holding
the D-Pad down button whilst also holding A.

4.0     Tracks
==============

Each track when presented displays the track name in English followed by 
Japanese text underneath. The first part of the Japanese text is simply 
the circuit name repeated, however the second piece of text is a brief 
description of the track. I have included these descriptions where 
known.

4.1     Pawn
------------

4.1.1   Pawn 1 - Bianca City
----------------------------
Description: Straight Circuit

This track is an excellent introduction to the game, striking a balance between
excitement and ease of use. Nice wide lanes with plenty of overtaking
opportunities, none of the bends are too sharp. There is one jump ramp in the
course and three speed up markers. The most challenging corner is the gentle
180 degree bend before the start-finish straight.

4.1.2   Pawn 2 - Stark Farm
---------------------------
Description: First Circuit

As the second track I think it is unreasonably harsh on the beginner. Narrow
and very twisty, the course has numerous areas where the surface has broken up,
causing your craft to slow down if hit. Several 90 degree bends and one narrow
180 degree turn make this track a difficult nut to crack.

4.1.3   Pawn 3 - Laputan Colony
-------------------------------
Description: Dash Circuit

A wider track, not too dissimilar from Bianca City poses no real problems. One
very wide 180 degree bend is easy to negotiate, the only tricky part comes in
tackling the point where the track splits in two, giving you the choice of
going left or right. Speed up markers appear on both sides, and hitting them
all without slamming into the side of the track requires precise road
positioning.

4.1.4   Pawn 4 - Stark Farm
---------------------------
Description: Second Circuit

Another wide track, narrows in places due to track damage (will slow you down
if hit). With one easy 180 degree turn, this track should present you with no
real problems.

4.1.5   Pawn Final - Clouds Carpet
----------------------------------
Description: Long Jump Circuit

A challenging track, Clouds carpet is wide in places and narrow in others.
Three 180 degree turns mean positioning your craft to take the correct line
through the corners is essential. A large section of track is missing towards
the end of the lap, requiring you to jump across the chasm. The only way to
make it is to use one of your boost charges or hit one of the two speed up
markers at either side of the track.

4.2     Knight
--------------

4.2.1   Knight 1 - East Ten Side
--------------------------------
Description: Snake Circuit

A wide track with one 180 degree turn, several 90 degree turns and a
challenging chicane (left then right 90 degree turns). Nothing too difficult
here with lots of overtaking opportunities, East Ten Side is a gentle
introduction to the Knight class.

4.2.2   Knight 2 - Beacon Port
------------------------------
Description: Crossroad Circuit

A very twisty track, distinctive by the way the track splits in two and forms a
large figure of eight. There are many sharp 90 degree corners and a couple of
almost 180 degree bends. While negotiating the figure of eight, be sure to
travel straight across the junction to maintain maximum momentum. Avoiding
colliding with other vehicle at the crossing is purely down to luck. Hitting
the speed up markers on this track requires good anticipation of the following
corners, otherwise you will be bouncing off the side of the course in no time.

4.2.3   Knight 3 - Synobazz
---------------------------
Description: ?

This track contains some devious mines which deplete power from your vehicle if
hit. Fortunately the mines can only be hit once, but the craters they leave
will slow down your craft if run over. The actual track consists of one tight
180 degree corner, a twisty S bend, and a 270 degree turn containing the mines.
A jump ramp is also present, which must be hit to avoid some damaged track.
Some of the damaged track appears to be on fire, and will drain power from your
vehicle if hit.

4.2.4   Knight 4 - Ancient Mare
-------------------------------
Description: Symmetry Circuit

Possibly the most difficult track in the whole game, the Ancient Mare is
distinctive by it's 'upside down triangular' split in the road. This causes a
problem because the back end of the triangle is virtually impossible to turn on
due to the icy road (this is identified by the track turning white and your
vehicle skidding out of control if attempting to steer). The best way of
heading back in the correct direction is to hit the speed up ramp at the base
of the triangle. This will ricochet your craft along the right heading,
requiring only corrective steering on your part to avoid slamming into the side
of the track where the road narrows. A section of track is also missing towards
the end of the lap, but fortunately a jump ramp is present to help you across.

4.2.5   Knight Final - Stark Farm
---------------------------------
Description: Third Circuit

A very easy track with a split in the road that has two very different sections
depending upon the choice you make. Going left results in a longer stretch of
road and some narrow sections of track, but overall your speed will be
maintained. Going right results in a shorter trip and a jump over a missing
section of track (a jump ramp is provided and you actually leap over part of
the road from the left fork). However, after the jump an un-avoidable section
of damaged track appears which severely slows down your vehicle. I would
therefore suggest you always turn left, but if you go right mistake it is
possible to drop down onto the crossing track at the jump by angling your craft
to the right at the jump ramp.

4.3     Bishop
--------------

4.3.1   Bishop 1 - Bianca City
------------------------------
Description: Tightrope Circuit

Bianca City is a very straightforward track with no real challenges, just a few
90 degree bends that should present no problems.

4.3.2   Bishop 2 - Ancient Mare
-------------------------------
Description: Ice Dance Circuit

Also known as the donut track, due to it's large almost circular section with
the hole in the middle! Unsurprisingly the road splits at the donut, with the
choice of going left or right. Just remember which side you entered, as if you
branched off left you must exit left and vice versa. The road surface here is
icy and is therefore very slippery. Further on two 180 degree turns loom and
both of these are icy too, which make for a very interesting challenge.

4.3.3   Bishop 3 - Crater Land
------------------------------
Description: Skid Dance Circuit

Crater land is a very unique track. There are three splits in the road, the
first of which gives you the choice of speed up markers (left) or power
recharge (right), the second gives you speed up markers each side, and the
third gives you the choice of power recharge (left) or speed up markers
(right). In between the second and third splits are energy fields on the road
which pull your craft to the left and right. This is not a problem on the wider
stretches of road, but requires precise counter-steering where the track
narrows.

4.3.4   Bishop 4 - Clouds Carpet
--------------------------------
Description: Icarus Circuit?

A very twisty narrow track makes this course very tricky. Two jump ramps are
positioned on the track, the second of which (just after the slippery surface
where the track is a bluey white colour) enables you to jump across a section
of track avoiding a sharp 180 degree turn. The best method of pulling this
shortcut off is to activate a boost whilst still on the slippery surface, and
pressing down on the D-Pad when hitting the jump ramp to add distance to the
leap. If done correctly, make sure you are lined up for the section of track
opposite and voila, you've pulled off an ace manoeuvre!

4.3.5   Bishop Final - Bianca City
----------------------------------
Description: Truth/Truce Circuit

Bianca City is twisty and narrow in places, with three wide 180 degree turns
and a couple of chicanes (one with sections of damaged track). Overall this is
a fairly straightforward track to navigate.

4.4     Queen
-------------

When all clases (Pawn, Knight and Bishop) have been completed on Expert level,
a new class called Queen is unlocked.

4.4.1   Queen 1 - Crater Land
-----------------------------
Description: Right Curve Circuit

The first experience of Queen class is very gentle, this course is almost an
oval with no tricky corners. Just round and round for a very easy ride. Watch 
out for damaged areas of track, jump ramps are available to help you over. 
Remember to press down on the D-Pad while jumping to grab some more air!

4.4.2   Queen 2 - East Ten Side
-------------------------------
Description: ?

East Ten Side has 5 breaks in the track, each of which does not quite line up 
straight. Jump ramps help you across, but you must correct direction while 
in the air, and remember to press down on the D-Pad to add a few extra inches 
to your jump - you'll need them!

4.4.3   Queen 3 - Laputan Colony
--------------------------------
Description: Twist Circuit

This course would be pretty straight forward were it not for the spin markers. 
Hit these little puppies and your craft will spin 180 degrees on the spot, 
leaving you facing the wrong direction. Things are not made any easier by 
these appearing immediately after speed up markers, so be careful when hitting 
them.

4.4.4   Queen 4 - Fire Field
----------------------------
Description: Landmine Circuit

This track is peppered with mines that blow up and damgae your craft if hit. 
The flaming craters they leave behind also damage your vehicle if run over, so 
avoid if possible. A tricky double hair pin turn needs particular care to 
avoid mine damage.

4.4.5   Queen Final - Fire Field
--------------------------------
Description: ?

The mines on this track are positioned in rows making them easier to avoid. 
Jump ramps appear before each row of mines, so position the vehicle right and 
you will sail over most of them, hopefuly not landing on one!

4.5     Championship Course - Synobazz
--------------------------------------
Description: Championship Circuit

This track has everything imaginable! Speed up markers are peppered throughout
the course, the first bend leads onto some mines (avoid) and molten areas of
damaged track (also avoid). This leads onto more conventional damaged road that
narrows the track and slows you down if hit. More mines and molten damage then
appear, after which there are a couple of jump ramps. This leads onto an icy
patch for three turns (very slippery - don't bump the side of the course) then
a some speed up markers onto the start finish straight. Avoid everything bad
and hit the speed up markers while trying to beat the record time (the default
is set by Megan in the Hot Violet).

5.0     Easter Eggs
===================

5.1     Jet Vermilion Unlock Code
---------------------------------
For those not patient enough to complete the Championship course 255 times, 
or complete every track with every vehicle on Master class, the following 
code will allow you to unlock this elusive vehicle. Please note, the code
