    10/31/01: Version 0.2- Got halfway through the courses.

    =======================================================================
    2. Introduction
    =======================================================================
    Extreme-G is a highly underrated game. It has very good Graphics,
    sound, Gameplay, and Replay Value. Out of all the racing games I own,
    this is my favorite. In this Walkthrough, I will teach you everything I
    know about Extreme-G.
    =======================================================================
    3. Controls
    =======================================================================
    These are the default controls. They can be changed at any time by
    pressing R on the bike selection screen.
    
    Z= Accelerate
    A= Primary Weapon
    B= Brake
    R= Skid
    Cv= Nitro
    C>= Secondary Weapon
    C^= Change View
    L= Display Names
    Control Pad= Steer
    =======================================================================
    4. Bikes
    =======================================================================
    1 is the worst and 10 is the best.
    The stats are divided into five sections:
    Accel: Acceleration- How well the bike can get up to its top speed from
    a dead stop.
    Speed: How high its top speed is.
    Turns: How well it can turn.
    Shield: The lower the shield the more damage you will take. If your
    shield runs out you will slow down more when hit.
    Weap: Weapons- How powerful your weapons are.
    
    There are three types of Fixed Weapons:
    Laser: Good slow down power, Medium distance, bad power
    Excel: Medium slow down power, bad distance, Good power
    Pulse: Bad slow down power, Good distance, medium power
    
    The average speeds were taken on Desert 1 in Time Trial (faster than
    Extreme Contest).

    Opinion: He’s fast but his acceleration is horrible. He’s not the best,
    but he’s still OK. To help with his acceleration, use a nitro at the
    start.

    guy near as much.

    Fixed Weapon: Laser
    Average Speed: 250-280
    Average Nitro Speed: 350-410
    
    Opinion: The best bike in the game. He has absolutely perfect stats.
    With the high-speed code on, I was able to get him to go over 700 mph.
    This guy should be used in time trial to get the best records.

    5. Weapons
    =======================================================================
    If you want to, you have the option of turning the weapons off on the
    options menu.
    
    Standard Missiles: A yellow R with one arrow above it.
    Desc: These come in packs of one, two, three, four, or five. They go
    straight ahead when fired and explode on impact.
    Rating: 5/10
    
    Multiple Needle Missiles: A purple R with three arrows above it.
    Desc: These come in groups of 2 or 4 and fire altogether.
    Rating: 6/10
    
    Rear Firing Missile: A green R with an arrow below it.
    Desc: These come in packs of one, two, three, four, or five. They fire
    altogether and go backwards.
    Rating: 7/10
    
    Mortar Rocket: A green R with an arrow on each side of it.
    Desc: These come in packs of two, four, six, or eight. They fire upward
    and rain down on the course in front of you.
    Rating: 2/10
    
    Homing Missile: An H with an arrow above it.
    Desc: These home out an enemy in front of you and explode when they hit
    them. If there is no enemy, then they will deflect of walls and explode
    a fair way along the track.
    Rating: 8/10
    
    Proximity Mines: A yellow M with a blue ring around it.
    Desc: Lays on the track and explodes when a bike hits it, slowing them
    down.
    Rating: 7/10
    
    Laser Limpet-Mines: A yellow M with a red line on either side of it.
    Desc: This attaches itself to both walls and explodes when someone hits
    it.
    Rating: 7/10
    
    Morning Star: A yellow M with a circle above it.
    Desc: This is a mine with a laser circling around a stick. It explodes
    when someone hits it.
    Rating: 3/10
    
    Tractor Beam: A purple T with three yellow boxes above it.
    Desc: This pulls other players backwards, allowing you to pass them.
    Rating: 6/10
    
    Flame Exhaust: A red F with a red flame above it.
    Desc: This slows down everybody who hits it and gives you a little
    boost.
    Rating: 6/10
    
    Power Shield: A blue circle with three yellow squares on each side.
    Desc: This protects you and fires waves out that slow down the
    opponent.
    Rating: 7/10
    
    Invulnerability Shield: A blue circle with a light blue ring around it.
    Desc: This protects you from damage for a longer time than the Power
    Shield.

    seconds.
    Rating: 5/10

    anybody from passing.
    Rating 4/10
    
    Static Pulse: A yellow lightning bolt.
    Desc: This fires a purple “Tornado” down the track. If it hits a
    person, it slows them down, reverses their steering, and prevents them
    from using their weapons for a limited amount of time.
    Rating: 9/10
    
    Wally Warp: A yellow and a purple W.
    Desc: First, this drops the exit warp (purple), then it drops the
    entrance warp (yellow) later on. When someone hits the entrance warp,
    they will be warped back to the exit warp. The faster you go after you
    drop the exit warp, the farther the two warps will be apart.
    Rating: 10/10
    
    Invisibility: Four blue lines that form a circle.
    Desc: This makes you invisible for a limited amount of time. While you
    are invisible, you will disappear from the radar, but your shield will
    still show up if you hit something.
    Rating: 8/10
    
    Recharge: A red circle.
    Desc: This refills some of your shield. If your shield is full, it will
    do nothing.

    6. The Courses
    =======================================================================
    In all there are 13 courses, but only three are available at the
    beginning. The others can be unlocked in Extreme Contest mode.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    A. Desert
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----------------------------------
    Desert 1
    -----------------------------------
    Opinion: A very basic track. This track shouldn’t be too difficult.
    
    Jumps: 1
    Ramps: 2
    Nitro Curtains: 2
    
    Best Path: After the temple there will be two paths to take. Take the
    left path, it’s longer but it has two nitro curtains. Before the second
    nitro curtain, use a regular nitro to go zooming through the
    straightaway.
    -----------------------------------
    Desert 2
    -----------------------------------
    Opinion: This track has a lot of neat features. It has one of the
    biggest dips in the game, and one of the two pipes in the game.
    
    Jumps: 3
    Ramps: 0
    Nitro Curtains: 2
    
    Best Path: After the big dip and a long straightaway, there will be a
    fork. Take the left path, it is faster. The right path has a pipe, a
    jump and a nitro curtain though.
    -----------------------------------
    Desert 3
    -----------------------------------
    Opinion: A cool course. You will go through a corkscrew and find a
    hidden shortcut.
    
    Jumps: 1
    Ramps: 3
    Nitro Curtains: 0
    
    Best Path: After the junkyard at the beginning, there will be two
    paths. Take the right path. It is shorter, but it has a jump.
    
    Shortcut: After the corkscrew, there will be a ramp on the right side
    of the track. Go up it while pushing right to go over the wall onto a
    hidden track. This track is MUCH shorter.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    B. City
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----------------------------------
    City 1
    -----------------------------------
    Opinion: This course has great graphics. You will find your first loop
    here.
    
    Jumps: 1
    Ramps: 2
    Nitro Curtains: 0
    
    Best Path: After the river, there will be two paths to take. Take the
    left path, it is longer but you will go faster on it.
    -----------------------------------
    City 2
    -----------------------------------
    Opinion: One of the longest courses, this one is in the depths of the
    city.
    
    Jumps: 1
    Ramps: 0
    Nitro Curtains: 0
    
    Best Path: After the prison-like place, there will be two paths. Take
    the right path, it’s slightly faster.
    -----------------------------------
    City 3
    -----------------------------------
    Opinion: The second shortest course. This is the course where I went
    over 700 mph with Neon.
    
    Jumps: 0
    Ramps: 1
    Nitro Curtains: 2
    
    Best Path: Right after the first turn, there are two paths. Take the
    right path; it has no beams that you can run into.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    C. Mines & Canyons
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----------------------------------
    Mines & Canyons 1
    -----------------------------------
    Opinion: One of my least favorite courses. You will go through a
    corkscrew that will speed you up.
    
    Jumps: 2
    Ramps: 0
    Nitro Curtains: 0
    -----------------------------------
    Mines & Canyons 2
    -----------------------------------
    Opinion: One of my favorite courses. This course has tons of Wally
    Warps.
    
    Jumps: 0
    Ramps: 1
    Nitro Curtains: 0
    
    Shortcut: When you get to the ramp, go up it and push right to land on
    a secret track. This track isn’t really shorter, but you can find a
    Wally Warp here.
    -----------------------------------
    Mines & Canyons 3
    -----------------------------------
    Opinion: Ouch! This course is the longest and hardest in the game. You
    will go through sections that have no rails! If you fall off you will
    regenerate on the track again, but you will lose valuable seconds.
    
    Jumps: 1
    Ramps: 0
    Nitro Curtains: 0
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    D. Space Station
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----------------------------------
    Space Station 1
    -----------------------------------
    Opinion: A nice course, this course has a lot of loops.
    
    Jumps: 2
    Ramps: 0
    Nitro Curtains: 0
    
    Best Path: Right after the first turn, there will be two paths. It
    really doesn’t matter what path you take, but I like to take the left
    path.
    -----------------------------------
    Space Station 2
    -----------------------------------
    Opinion: A very weird course, you will go through a lot of haze.
    
    Jumps: 1
    Ramps: 1
    Nitro Curtains: 2
    
    Best Path: After the loops, there will be two paths. Take the right
    path, it has two nitro curtains.
    -----------------------------------
    Space Station 3
    -----------------------------------
    Opinion: My favorite course. When you get a pack of missiles, you will
    always get five of them.
    
    Jumps: 0
    Ramps: 1
    Nitro Curtains: 1
    
    Shortcut: After the second dip, there will be a ramp. Go up the ramp
    and you will hop onto a secret track. At the end of it, there is a
    nitro curtain.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    E. Secret Course
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Opinion: A course by the ocean. At first glance this might look like a
    boring course. It is very short and has no obstacles. But in truth,
    this course can be one of the hardest to win. There are many weapons
    that the computers will keep hitting you with.
    
    Jumps: 0
    Ramps: 0
    Nitro Curtains: 0
    =======================================================================
    7. Extreme Contest
    =======================================================================
    There are three Extreme Contests. Each one is longer than the next.
    There are also three difficulties. Extreme Contest is where you will
    unlock everything. You also seem to go slower here than in Single
    Player mode.
    
    This mode can also be a 2-player mode. Just have the other player press
    start on controller 2 at the bike selection screen.
    
    The point system goes as follows:
    1st- 8
    2nd- 6
    3rd- 5
    4th- 4
    5th- 3
    6th- 2
    7th- 1
    8th- 0
    
    You can also get extra points:
    Don’t use any nitros- 1
    Avoid the walls for most of the race- 1
    
    The Contests and the courses you will play:
    Atomic:
    Desert 1
    Desert 2
    City 1
    Mines & Canyons 1
    
    Critical Mass:
    Desert 1
    Desert 2
    Desert 3
    City 1
    City 2
    Mines & Canyons 1
    Mines & Canyons 2
    Space Station 1
    
    Meltdown:
    Desert 1
    Desert 2
    Desert 3
    City 1
    City 2
    City 3
    Mines & Canyons 1
    Mines & Canyons 2
    Mines & Canyons 3
    Space Station 1
    Space Station 2
    Space Station 3
    
    Your Opponents and their fixed weapons:
    Gray: Excel
    Strike: Pulse
    Blaze: Excel
    Locus: Pulse
    Rizal: Excel
    Phati: Excel
    Pulse: Pulse
    =======================================================================
    8. Single Player Mode
    =======================================================================
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    A. Practice
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Practice just lets you play against the computer opponents you played
    against in Extreme Contest. You get to choose from the three
    difficulties and any tracks and bikes you’ve unlocked. You also seem to
    go faster here than in Extreme Contest mode.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    B. Time Trial
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Just like practice, but you race against the clock instead of the
    computer opponents.
    -----------------------------------
    My Records
    -----------------------------------
    These times come after many tries. You probably won’t be able to match
    them on your first try.
    
    Desert 1- 34.05
    Desert 2- 32.88
    Desert 3- 39.68
    City 1- 33.56
    City 2- 55.70
    City 3- 29.86
    Mines & Canyons 1- 39.88
    Mines & Canyons 2- 53.10
    Mines & Canyons 3- 1:03.40
    Space Station 1- 35.45
    Space Station 2- 38.66
    Space Station 3- 49.53
    Secret Course- 10.71
    -----------------------------------
    How to get better records
    -----------------------------------
    1. First, you want to use Neon to set the records.
    2. Attempt your record on the second lap.
    3. Save all your nitros for the second lap.
    4. Using nitros in front of nitro curtains makes you go really fast.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    B. Shoot-em-up
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    In Shoot-em-up mode, you are trying to destroy as many droids as you
    can in three laps.
    -----------------------------------
    My Records
    -----------------------------------
    Desert 1- 32
    Desert 2- 35

    -----------------------------------
    1. I like to use Raze
    2. Try not to get the mortar rockets; they don’t do much.
    =======================================================================
    9. Multiplayer Mode
    =======================================================================
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    A. Battle Arena
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    The object in battle arena is to deplete your opponent’s shield before
    they deplete yours.
    
    2-4 players can play.
    -----------------------------------
    Course 1 (Upper Left)
    -----------------------------------
    This course has only two rooms. One of them has three stories. There
    isn’t much exciting here.
    
    Rooms: 2
    Ramps: 0
    -----------------------------------
    Course 2 (Upper Right)
    -----------------------------------
    This course has an alcove in the bottom room. You can also hop off the
    top room onto to other rooms.
    
    Rooms: 4
    Ramps: 0
    -----------------------------------
    Course 3 (Bottom Left)
    -----------------------------------
    The most interesting course: this course has a secret room. In the top
    room, you can go through one of the walls! The wall is right behind
    where player 2 appears.
    
    Rooms: 3
    Ramps: 0
    -----------------------------------
    Course 4 (Bottom Right)
    -----------------------------------
    The smallest course, this course has only one room.
    
    Rooms: 1
    Ramps: 3
    -----------------------------------
    Secret Course
    -----------------------------------
    This is just like the secret course in single player mode, except you
    can go backwards.
    
    Rooms: 1
    Ramps: 0
    -----------------------------------
    Tips
    -----------------------------------
    1. Use either Mooga or Neon.
    2. The walls can hurt you. Avoid them.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    B. Head to Head
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Just like practice except you are racing human opponents.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    C. Flag Race
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Instead of weapons, you have flags. Try to collect the most flags
    before the first person finishes. The person with the most flags at the
    end wins. You can also shoot people to make them drop their flags and
    make the flags explode by shooting them.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    D. Multiplayer Cup
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    2-16 people can play
    
    This is great if there is a large amount of people.
    
    You can choose from four different variations:
    Course 1- Play Desert 1, City 1, Mines & Canyons 1, and Space Station 1
    Course 2- Play Desert 2, City 2, Mines & Canyons 2, and Space Station 2
    Course 3- Play Desert 3, City 3, Mines & Canyons 3, and Space Station 3
