    03.)                    OVERVIEW                                     G0300
    ===============================================================================
    
    ESPN International Track & Field is a simple yet sometimes challenging game.
    You'll need to be good at hitting those buttons fast.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            TECHNIQUE                                    G0310
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    T&F is all about speed and button bashing. Best way to get good speeds up is to
    place the GameBoy on a hard surface where it doesn't move around. You need to
    have both hands available and cannot hold the device in your palms as you might
    want to.
    
    The power/speed button are A and B. With the other hand you need to keep on the
    D-pad to control whichever action is required for the specific event. Quite
    often it is possible to let go of the A & B button to press it, but not
    recommended for top results. Some people prefer to concentrate on the
    running/powering up first and quickly switch over to the other buttons, however
    this will surely result in a loss of power/speed.
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    04.)                    MAIN MENU                                    G0400
    ===============================================================================
    
    The Main Menu is simple: 3 Options to choose from.
    
    Single Player has three more options:
    
    - First we have Trial Mode, where on can choose from any event in any order
      and compete a single time.
    
    - Second there is Championship. One is required to go through ten events at 
      random order and gather points for an overall score.
    
    - Lastly you can see all the records listed.
    
    Versus mode is for playing against another real life person instead of just
    the CPU. Requires the Link Cable!
    
    
    OPTIONS:
    
    * Sound BGM Test
    
      Cycle through the music.
      
    * Data All Clear
    
      Clear all existing records, scores and medals. Only do this if you have a
      specific reason!!
      
      
    ===============================================================================
    05.)                    EVENTS                                       G0500
    ===============================================================================
    
    The fun part of the guide: the events. There are 12 events in total. Not all
    are part of Track & Field or Athletics but are part of the Olympics. You need
    to unlock some of them before playing them in Trial Mode, and some are not
    available in Challenge Mode.
    
    In each event you can gain points, they are only useful in Arcade mode.

                            High Jump                                    G0501
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    High Jump:
    ``````````
    
    Default World Record: 2.45m
    
    Controls:
    
    A & B to run.
    
    D-Pad Up to jump.
    
    D-Pad Down to recover.
    
    You get three attempts to get the highest jump possible. First set the bar to
    the height, you cannot go lower than the previous jump. Start running as fast
    as you can and then push Up in front of the mat, as close as possible but not
    actually running through it. The gauge on the lower display will start going
    right in the air, press Down on the D-Pad as close to the red bar as possible
    to get over the bar.

                            110m Hurdle                                  G0502
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    110m Hurdle:
    ````````````
    
    Default World Record: 12.91 sec
    
    Controls:
    
    A & B to run.
    
    D-Pad Up to jump.
    
    Start running when the GO! appears and keep it up. When the hurdles are close
    jump over them with the Up direction. You should be fairly close, but not too
    close. This is hard to describe and you will unfortunately need to get a feel
    for the distance yourself.
    
    Remember, 2 false starts and you are disqualified!
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            Javeling Throw                               G0503
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Javeling Throw:
    ```````````````
    
    Default World Record: 98.48m
    
    Controls:
    
    A & B to run.
    
    D-Pad Up to set the throw angle.
    
    You have three attempts to throw as far as you can. Start by running as fast as
    you can, and then when the angle display shows up, wait a second longer and
    press Up until the mark hits 45-degrees or as close as you can to that number.
    Your athlete should only throw it at the end of the runway, but don't forget he
    will be forced forward a few more meters due to the velocity of the run.
    Therefore leave enough room for that, and don't set the angle too early. If you
    run at a very high speed then this would mean you should start just after the
    camera man at the top appears in view. For other speeds you will have to adjust
    accordingly. Either way, if you throw it too late the athlete will step over
    the line, resulting in a foul.

                            100m Freestyle                               G0504
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    100m Freestyle:
    ```````````````
    
    Default World Record: 53.01 sec
    
    Controls:
    
    A & B to swim.
    
    D-Pad Down to turn.
    
    Wait for the signal and press a button to dive. Then you need to time the A and
    B button hits with the blue bars that mean a perfect stroke. Hitting it too
    early or late means slowing down. At the end of the lane, press Down to turn as
    soon as the arrow appears.
    
    Remember, 2 fault starts and you are disqualified!

                            Vault                                        G0505
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Vault:
    ``````
    
    Controls:
    
    A & B to build up power, land.
    
    D-Pad to input command.
    
    There are two attemps and the average will count as the final score. First
    start running as fast as you can, as the bar with the letters will determine
    the difficulty of the jump. Higher difficulty means higher score, because you
    do not want to end up with a 7+ score because you were too slow, do you? Try to
    get into the E area before she reachers the block. Then when the difficulty is
    set, wait for the command to appear and enter it as quickly as possible. C is a
    3, D a 4 and E a 5 directional input. The speed you enter the command is also
    important for the final score. Finally, press the A/B button at the red bar to
    get top marks for the landing as well.

                            Long Jump                                    G0506
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Long Jump:
    ``````````
    
    Default World Record:  8.95m
    
    Controls:
    
    A & B to run.
    
    D-Pad up to angle the jump.
    
    You get 3 attempts to get the longest jump. Run as fast as possible up to the
    jump block, press Up on the D-Pad until the angle is as close to 45-degrees as
    possible and let go so the athlete jumps. The closer to the line the further he
    will jump as well, but crossing the line during a jump is a foul.

                            Pole Vault                                   G0507
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Pole Vault:
    ```````````
    
    Default World Record: 6.14m
    
    Controls:
    
    A & B to run.
    
    D-Pad Up to jump and release.
    
    You have three attempts for the highest possible jump. First set the bar at
    your desired height. The start running as fast as possible. When the pole is
    planted, the red gauge starts going right, push Up to at the rightmost position
    on the bar possible to get a high jump, but not too late. Then the blue gauge
    will go left, hit the Up button as close to the left as possible to release.

                            Weight Lifting                               G0508
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Weight Lifting:
    ```````````````
    
    Default World Record: 260kg
    
    Controls:
    
    A & B to build up power.
    
    D-Pad Up to lift.
    
    You have three attempts to life the heaviest amount you can. There is a 60
    second time limit to perform a lift. First select the barbell weight as desired
    and then start powering up. When the power bar has cleared the first level,
    press Up to lift the weights on the shoulders. Do the same again to stand up
    with the weights, only this time the level is higher. Finally, reach the new
    level and keep over it for three seconds to succesfully raise the weights over
    your head. The three red lights signal if you are done. You cannot go under the
    level once you start lifting, and the maximum amount of weights require you to
    keep it at maximum for the entire time!

    Default World Record: 1350pts
    
    Controls:
    
    D-Pad: Aim to cursor.
    
    A-Button: Shoot.
    
    You have 60 seconds to shoot as many traps as possible. They start coming out
    as two, hit them both and there will be an additional one in the next turn.
    This means if you always hit them there will be a maximum of 6 traps flying
    through in a turn, and you have exactly six shots. Miss one trap and next turn
    will reduce the traps by that number, but there will always be 2 at minimum.
    
    There are two kind of color traps, pink color give 10 points where as blue
    ones 50. If you hit all discs during a round, you also get a special rating:
    2/2 Good:       10 points
    3/3 Great:      15 points
    4/4 Fantastic:  25 points
    5/5 Awesome:    50 points
    6/6 Excellent: 100 points

    The easiest event of all, simply wait for the GO and start hitting those
    buttons. That is it. The competition is pretty good, especially when it comes
    to the start.
    
    Remember not to make more than one false start or you will be disqualified!

    Controls:
    
    A to Attack.
    
    D-Pad Right / Left to Move
    
    D-Pad Up / Down to Defend.
    
    A bout lasts 99 seconds. The person with the highest score at the end wins. If
    anyone hits 10 points before that they automatically win as well. Move the
    fighter right and left on the podium. The figher will automatically defend the
    middle if no button is pressed, and up and down with the D-Pad. Use these
    buttons with the A button to attack higher or lower.
    
    A cheap tactic to use, when ahead in points you can simply hold back and walk
    into the red area to reset the bout in the middle. This wastes time and the
    other fighter usually does not reach you in time, but no not take this for
    granted. Why this works most of time is because the CPU fighter will often just
    wait on her side doing pretty much doing as well.

    Table Tennis:
    `````````````
    
    Controls:
    
    Use A to swing the racket. The bar on the left controls the swing power. In the
    blue parts you will miss the ball completely or maybe just the net Not pressing
    A at all or too late obviously does not do any good either. The green bars make
    a solid return, usually resulting in a long exchange between the other player.
    Yellow is a weak return, giving the other person a chance to smash easily. The
    red bar is the smash itself.
    
    During play the bars change slightly, depending on what kind of return the
    player makes. Green returns do not change the bars, yellow returns, however,
    increase the other player's smash bar (red) whereas a smash return simply makes
    the bar and of course the ball go faster, meaning you need to be quicker to
    return that ball. The faster reaction time makes it harder to hit a good return
    ball.
    
    You need to win three matches for a gold medal. The first to get to 10 points
    in a match wins, regardless of how many points different. In other words,
    forget the 2 point difference you are used to playing in reality, as the 10
    point goal is all you need to think about.

    Select one of the eleven events and compete in it once. Afterwards you will get
    the choice to continue playing it, select another event or return to the main

    ===============================================================================
    
    Championship mode takes you through ten events in random order. Each event's
    points will be accumulated for a final overall score you compete with against
    the CPU. Therefore if you are very good in one event you can get an advantage,
    and balance out an event you are less good at.
    
    Fencing and Table Tennis are not part of the Championship mode.

    Gameplay: 8/10
    
    Still the same old technique, and it is a little tiring that most events
    require maximum power. Even the older games have some "best level" to run at
    instead of just bashing the best possible way. The vault and swimming events
    make for a nice change, and the unlockable events are fun if not a little long.
    
    
    Sound: 9/10
    
    Great great great. Music and sound effects both feature well and never get
    boring. Sounds might not seem important but the small shouts here, gun shots,
    error noises and what-not all make it come alive. The intro music might not be
    the best and the overall package a little boring after a long time, but
    spending most time on the events reduces this slight annoyance.
    
    
    Graphics: 9/10
    
    The graphics are gorgeous, and superb for the Gameboy Color. Compared to the
    previous Track and Field this looks like from a different console. The color,
    3D graphics and improved designs make for a huge difference.
    
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    A little dated gameplay with great graphics and sound makes this one a superb
    addition to the series. Unfortunately gameplay is the most important part of
    the game.
