    EPISODE I - RACER
    
    Anakin Skywalker is no ordinary nine-year-old boy. And now, he
    must face the ultimate test of his young life - a Podracer
    challenge. It's a test of courage, fast reflexes, and quick
    thinking, as the opponents maneuver their nine-meter-long (30-
    foot-long) Podracers at speeds over 600 mph - flying just a few
    feet above the ground.
    
    Keeping a firm grip on the "reins", Anakin must fight to control
    his Podracer's screaming jet engines, while keeping a constant
    eye out for hazards and obstacles - and the dirty tricks of his
    fellow racers.
    
    For Anakin and his opponents, winning the race - at all costs -
    is all that matters...

    Version 1.0
    This first version of this FAQ it's only a Secrets Guide, and
    because of the game's difficulty - I have finished all tracks
    with 1st place, but I want to make right the text - version 1.0
    is only a secrets guide. Coming soon, check for an update of this
    FAQ, containing one new section and the walkthrough of the first
    game circuit.

    * CHEAT CODES *
    @ Invincibility       RRJABBA
    @ Mirror Mode         RRTHEBEAST
    @ Debug Mode          RRDEBUG
    # Play as Jinn Reeso  RRJINNRE
    # Play as Cy Yunga    RRCYYUN
    # Dual Control Mode   RRDUAL
    @ Unlock all Cheats   RRTANGENTABACUS
    
    NOTE for cheats marked with "@": See "Cheat Codes Menu" in this
    section to see how to activate.
    
    NOTE for cheats marked with "#": See section 4.
    
    NOTE for "Unlock all Cheats": The cheat also activates Jinn Reeso
    and Cy Yunga like the RRJINNRE and RRCYYUN cheats.
    
    * CONTROLS FOR DEBUG MODE *
    When the Debug Mode is activated, you can do the following with
    the control pad (the digital cross-pad on the left of your
    controller):
    
      Left + Z = See through walls 
      Up = Fast-forward level 
      Down = Re-wind level 
      Left = Invisible Podracer
      Right = Destroy your Podracer 
    
    * CHEAT CODES MENU *
    To activate the cheat codes marked with "@" (see above), type-in
    one of those cheats (see section 6 to see how) and, when you're
    racing, go to the PAUSE screen and introduce the following
    sequence in your control pad (the digital cross, not the stick):
    LEFT, DOWN, RIGHT, UP. Then, the "Cheat Codes" option will appear
    and the cheat/cheats you activated will be displayed, and you can
    activate or change the cheat options by pressing C-Left and/or C-
    Right.
    
    * TURBO START *
    The turbo start is a big impulse at the beggining of the race. To
    make a turbo start, press A and Up at the same time when you see
    the "one" signal about to disappear.
    
    * MIRROR MODE *
    It's a mode that allows you to invert the track horizontally. It
    can be activated in two ways:
     1) The first is with the cheat code RRTHEBEAST activated from
        the "Game Cheats" menu in Pause.
     2) The other is finishing every track with 1st place, including
        the invitational ones. Then, the main screen will be
        inverted and the option "Mirror: On/Off" will appear in the
        Track Details Screen.
    
    * AUTO-PILOT *
    First, activate the "unlock all cheats" code and while playing
    press R and Z to enable auto pilot, where you control only the
    speed of the Podracer. Press R and Z again to disable auto
    pilot.
    
    * PLAYER TAUNTS *
    To see your player and the track favorite player trash-talking,
    keep pressed Z when you select START RACE in your menu. This
    only works in the Tournament mode.
    
    * PLAYER TAUNTS 2 *
    Double-tap R and your pilot will talk (Sebulba will activate
    his flamejet, but he will talk too).
    
    * UNLOCK CHARACTERS *
    These are the characters that you can unlock and the tracks where
    you unlock them.

    ===================
    3) COMMON QUESTIONS
    ===================
    
    WHAT ARE THE TRUGUTS?
    The truguts are the money to buy things. To win truguts, place
    4th or better in the race. You can distribute the amount of
    truguts you win in the Track Details Screen in fair, by your
    place or winner takes all.
    
    HOW CAN I KEEP MY PODRACER IN GOOD CONDITION?
    You can buy pit droids to keep it in good shape, 'cause when the
    parts are damaged, they are less powerful.
    
    HOW CAN I UPGRADE MY PODRACER?
    When you finish the race, you can buy better parts to your
    podracer with truguts in Watto's shop. If you can't afford his
    prices, go to Watto's junkyard. In the junkyard he has the same
    things, but because they're used and slightly damaged, their
    price is significantly less.
    
    WHAT ARE THE CHEAT CODES?
    The cheat codes are secret codes to enhance the game, add
    characters, etc. To activate them, go to an empty file; to type
    it, keep pressed Z and select the letters using L instead of A,
    and when you're finished, select END with L.
    
    HOW CAN I PLAY AS JINN REESO?
    To play as Jinn Reeso, you must have Mars Guo unlocked. Jinn
    Reeso will take the place of Mars Guo.
    
    HOW CAN I PLAY AS CY YUNGA?
    To play as Cy Yunga, you must unlock 'Bullseye' Navior and have
    entered the Jinn Reeso code. Cy Yunga will take the place of
    'Bullseye' Navior.
    
    HOW CAN I USE THE DUAL CONTROL MODE?
    To use the dual control mode, use both controllers 1 and 3 to
    move your podracer. Press up in both controllers to accelerate
    and back to steer.
