     This guide will help you get through the game or for the more advanced player
     help you get the perfect bonus as fast as possible on each level. See the FAQ
     for how scoring works.
    
     - Time     If you get to the goal in half of the time, you get your
         Bonus  "Clear Score" multiplied with 2.
    
     - Perfect  If you get all bananas on the stage, you get your "Clear Score"
         Bonus  multiplied with 2.
    
     - Warp     If you get to a secondary goal, you get your "Clear Score"
         Bonus  multiplied with 3.
    
     - 1 UP     You only need 50 bananas to get an extra life.
    
    
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     Beginner - 13 Stages (3 Extra Stages)
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     Get the basics and learn the controls. If you hold "A Button" you make more
     aggressive turns and roll faster. It's an important move on the later
     difficulties.
    
    -----: Stage 01 :--------------------------------------------------------------
     Bananas: 4          Time Limit: 60 Seconds
    
     .NORMAL.
     Hold A and press forward. There isn't anything to do here really.
    
     .PERFECT.
     Start of taking the first banana. Then the one to the right. Then turn to the
     other one in the beggining. Then go around the goal and pickup the last one
     before entering the goal. Bananas taken after crossing the finish line will
     not count for the "Perfect Bonus".
    
    
    -----: Stage 02 :--------------------------------------------------------------
     Bananas: 4          Time Limit: 30 Seconds           Warp: To floor 5
    
     .NORMAL.
     Warpless, go around the gap in a fair pace and cross the finish line. This
     is the best way when you want to unlock every stage into practice.
    
     Warp, Go forward a bit and turn around then leap over the hill in a speed
     that barealy makes it. Then tilt backwards and it helps if you tilt with A
     for a  short period. Not too long. Then you will roll off the small platform.
    
     .PERFECT.
     Go directly to the banana on the right side. Then loop behind the goal and
     pickup the banana there. Then go back for the banan on the other side of the
     first one. Then proceed to the small hill and drop down on the small platform
     below. Pickup the banana here and go into the goal. If you play "Main Game"
     though you rather want to pick up 3 bananas and then go to the first goal.
     Then you have 2 stages more to pick points in.
    
    
    -----: Stage 03 :--------------------------------------------------------------
     Bananas: 6          Time Limit: 30 Seconds
    
     .NORMAL.
     Go forward through the small bend and then through the wide U turn. Nothing
     hard really. You can go faster than slow and explore the A button carefully.
    
     .PERFECT.
     This stage is a pain. First you have to turn around and take the bend
     collecting all three bananas. Then when you aproach the middle charge to the
     other side while leaning with A in the middle part and you barely make it
     over. Then collect the three last bananas in the second bend and roll into
     the goal.
    
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     Advanced - 23 Stages (3 Extra Stages)
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     These stages are a bit harder. Keep on trying.
    
    ---: Stage AD05 :---
     There are two exits here. Do an aggressive turn and go over the bump in the
     middle with almost no speed at the top. Then you will land on the platform
     below you. Then roll into the GOAL.
    
    ---: Stage AD07 :---
     Hold A to roll faster to make it within the time given.
    
    ---: Stage AD09 :---
     Remember to use the aggressive turn technique at the top to get over.
    
    ---: Stage AD13 :---
     When you are above the GOAL you can drop down on the track but it takes 
     practise.
    
    ---: Stage AD20 :---
     "GO" look immediately at closest platform moving in front of you. It will 
     match up with the next one on the second row and when it does that you see
     that all others are matched up too. But you have to be out in advance and be
     fast.
    
    
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     Expert - 33 Stages (3 Extra Stages)
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     These stages are hard. Takes a lot of practise over and over, but you will
     make it.
    
    ---: Stage EX02 :---
     Two exits here. The one with the hill is the one that warps you forward.
    
    ---: Stage EX08 :---
     Line up with one of the ends end fall down to the next platform below. Do this
     twice and you are almost at the goal.
    
    ---: Stage EX15 :---
    Continue past the first GOAL to make it to the second GOAL.
    
    ---: Stage EXTRA EX01 :---
     You can fall down from the first platform to make a shortcut. This is hard and
     takes practise.
    
    
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     Master - 5 Stages
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     You bought Master eh? or... You typed the code eh?
    
     I have no help here. It's practically to learn the stages. If you are a true 
     master you will.
    
     If you completed all the stages I have to say CONGRATULATIONS!

     So you want to kick your friends behind, or you want to flourish yourself with
     your records? Then follow my tips.
    
    
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     Monkey Duel
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     This is like Main Game but you choose stages and play them simultaneous.
     Time is all that matters. I haven't tried it for real.
    
    
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     Monkey Fight
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     Be aggressive and try to get some feeling instead of moving around tapping the
     A Button. There is more luck in this game than skill but if you have played it
     awhile you will beat beginners.
    
    
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     Monkey Bowling
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     -Normal Mode:     Bowl for 10 frames and try to get a high score.
     -Challenge Mode:  Try to get all ten sets of pins in eleven bowls.
    
     Train in Challenge Mode after playing Normal Mode a couple of times to master
     the hard techniques.
    
     Due to a glitch in the game you can't get all strikes in "Normal Mode." The
     game will freeze when you strike your eleventh strike. To get a high score do
     “9 Pin” followed by “Spare” instead on your eleventh frame.
    
    
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     Monkey Golf
    =-----------------------------------------------------------------------------=
     Try to get the monkey in the hole. Don't stay on course all the time. Then you
     can't get all Hole-In-Ones. Here is a list with the best moves you can do on
     each Course.
    
     Course A - 10 shots
      A1 - 1 shot 
      A2 - 2 shots 
      A3 - 1 shot 
      A4 - 1 shot 
      A5 - 1 shot 
      A6 - 1 shot 
      A7 - 1 shot

    *---------------------------------= VII. FAQ =--------------------------------*
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    
     Q: How do the game calculate scores?
     A: Depending on the bonuses, but if all are there, like this:
        Floor Score * (Time Bonus) * (Perfect Bonus) * (Warp Bonus) + Banana Score
    
     Q: Where can I look up high scores?
     A: At Super Monkey Ball Elite. http://www.klow.net/smb/
    
     Q: Where are your name?
     A: If you have the European version my nick is the 18th yellow name in the
        credits game. I'm not in the other versions. That is because I discovered
        the bowling glitch.
    
     Q: What is the bowling glitch?
     A: When you get only strikes through a bowling game you get 300 as a score,
        but not in the US and JP versions of the game. They crash. You have
        to miss one pin and then get it to avoid the crash. And thus get 289
        points. But don't worry. The bowling game is very hard and it is very
        very hard to manage getting all the strikes.
    
     Q: What is the practice mode score glitch?
     A: If you go into the goal and collect a banana after crossing the goal and
        then repeatedly pressing A until you get to the next try. You will
        have the banana score from that banana. This is considered cheating.
        This will not affect the "Banana 2x bonus" counter.
