===========================
2. Introduction to the Game
===========================

Re-Volt is an RC Car racing game for the Dreamcast that puts you in 
control of a small RC car to race against rivals in life like (and life-
size) environments. You'll find yourself racing through neighborhood 
streets dodging the occasional basketball, leaping over supermarket cash 
registers, breaking into museums past closing hours, and sailing along 
on a cruise ship. It has just short of 50 different cars to race on 14 
different tracks. It is quite difficult, and takes quite a while to 
unlock the whole game.

==========================
3. Purpose of the Star FAQ
==========================

To fully unlock the game, not only will you have to win all the races 
and beat all the times. Those will come from experience, hard work and 
determination. The rest of the unlocking will come from finding and 
nabbing all the stars in the Practice mode of the game. Each track has a 
star and as the tracks get progressively harder, so does obtaining the 
stars. When you get the stars on every track of a certain difficulty 
level, more cars will be unlocked, so to get all of the cars, you need 
to get all of the stars.

==============
4. Easy Tracks
==============
These tracks all have the stars in easy to spot locations and are all 
easily accessible. Supermarket 2 will give you the hardest time to get 
but it should only take a couple of tries. (On a side note, for some 
reason, the numbering of the tracks in the game is weird. The second 
track you race in the game is Supermarket 2, when later in the game you 
come across Supermarket 1. The same thing goes for the Museum tracks)

<4.1 Toys in the Hood 1>

This star requires skill or insane jump to reach. It is found midway 
through the track underneath the red car that is halfway parked up on 
the curb (license plate PP4 CLE). Simply drive under the car and the 
star is yours.
Car to Use: Any

<4.2 Supermarket 2>

Proceed through the track and find the three cash registers. Back up as 
far as possible and then accelerate towards the middle register. Use the 
conveyor belt ramp to launch over the register and to get the star in 
the air.
Car to Use: Any car with fast acceleration. Adeon or Sprinter XL.

<4.3 Museum 2>

The star on this track is located on the handrail between the two 
escalators midway through the level. Line up with the bottom of the 
handrail and drive the ramp and onto the narrow rail between the two 
escalators. The star is about half way up.
Car to Use: Any

<4.4 Botanical Garden>

At the end of the track, as you are coming down the last hill, there is 
a small window to the left of the big arch. Drive down the grass, into 
the window and onto the elevated soil box. Behind the last pillar is the 
star.
Car to Use: Any

================
5. Medium Tracks
================
These are all easy with the one exception being the Rooftops star. This 
one is simply maddening to get.

<5.1 Rooftops>

This star is one of the harder ones to obtain in the game. The star can 
be seen on a ledge just past the roof with the two large satellite 
dishes (on the dark, unlit roof). To get the star you will have to 
travel beyond this point. Take the track around the building on the 
rooftop and get to the next one with small pyramid like structures on 
your left, and large buildings on your right. Drive between the first 
and second pyramids and turn yourself back towards the rooftop you just 
came from. This is where the difficulty starts. You have to jump off the 
rooftop and land on the narrow ledge that goes around the one you just 
came from (the dark rooftop). Driving too slow will make you miss the 
ledge and going too fast will make you fly over it. If you land on the 
ledge, stop your forward momentum by using reverse. It will take several 
tries. Your best bet is to point the nose of your car at the ladder in 
the distance and land somewhat on the corner, which allows for a little 
more room. After you land on the ledge, travel extremely slowly and 
carefully along the top until you reach the star.
Car to Use: I found it best to use Adeon and start accelerating from the 
second pyramid-like structure.

<5.2 Toy World 1>

Another easy star. Instead of just jumping off the very last ramp, 
slowly ride up the ramp and fall off the edge. You will get the star on 
your way down.
Car to Use: Any

<5.3 Ghost Town 1>

This star is located right before the finish-line. If you flip around 
and head backwards right from the start you should see it. It's sitting 
on top of a wooden crate right next to a large ramp. Just drive up the 
ramp and fall off the side to land on the star.
Car to Use: Any

<5.4 Toy World 2>

A little short of halfway into the track, one section of track jumps 
over the other. This jump can be found by taking the right path at the 
fork earlier in the race. Jump over the track then turn the car back 
around. Jump the opposite way you just came, but intead of landing on 
the track, land on the grassy spot to the right. The star is just in 
front of the big red door.
Car to Use: Any

==============
6. Hard Tracks
==============
Here is where the stars start being very difficult to get. All three 
pose a large challenge with Toytanic 1 being the hardest of the bunch. 
All three require fast cars and lots of patience.

<6.1 Toys in the Hood 2>

Take the first turn in the course and head towards the open doorway. 
Instead of entering, however, take a right. Drive down to the fence and 
up on the driveway to your left. Turn the car to face the white house at 
the end of the street and accelerate towards it. As you come to the 
street that intersects it, turn slightly to the right and hit the wooden 
ramp. This will launch you up and over the trash can that the star is 
sitting on top of. This one can be quite difficult. I wouldn't recommend 
accelerating up the street because it requires that you turn more at the 
end, resulting in a loss of speed. Also, you have to hit the ramp at a 
crooked angle. The wheels of the car tend to slip off the edge alot so 
getting this can be frustrating.
Car to Use: Anything fast, Adeon

<6.2 Toytanic 1>

This is one of the hardest stars to get in the game, maybe even THE 
hardest. Towards the end of the track there is a big long stretch of 
deck followed by a red ramp. The trick is to speed down the right 
corridor of the deck and up the right side of the ramp. This will launch 
you towards a deck chair. Turn to the left and hit the top of the 
backrest of the chair and pray that you are going fast enough, and in 
the right direction. This one takes many, many tries and alot of luck to 
get. And if taking forever to get isn't enough, you have to do it all 
again (more on that later).
Car to Use: Anything with speed and not too heavy. I got it with Adeon 
(my car of choice in case you couldn't tell).

<6.3 Museum 1>

Turn around at the start and take the course in reverse. Don't go up the 
large metal ramp after the first turn. Instead, go behind it to a room 
filled with lasers and infared tripwires. Accelerate down the room and 
at the very end, aim towards the top of the blue shell. You'll fly over 
the shell and out over the staircase. The star is hanging high in the 
air over the staircase. Another perk to this hard to get star requires a 
long drive back around the course. After you fly over the shell, you 
can't get back to the ledge you came from. So you have to drive back 
towards the finish-line and back to the laser room.
Car to Use: Anything Fast.

=================
7. Extreme Tracks
=================
These are on about the same playing field as the hard tracks (except 
Ghost Town 2, which is very easy to get).

<7.1 Supermarket 1>

Turn and drive the course in reverse right from the start. Drive all the 
way down the long corridor until you reach the wall. Turn yourself back 
towards the cash registers and floor it. Get as much speed as you can 
and launch off the ramp on the leftmost cash register. This one requires 
a very fast car.
Car to Use: Your Fastest Car

<7.2 Ghost Town 2>

Turn around and start the course in reverse. Head through the small 
space between the two buildings and on through the course. Soon you will 
see the ramp that you used to get the star in Ghost Town 1. Go to the 
bottom and accelerate up. Instead of driving off the side like before, 
simply drive straight up the ramp. At the top, you will come to a 
vertical wall. Drive up the wall and the star is at the top. This one is 
very easy to get, but incredibly hard to locate. It isn't visible until 
you drive right over it due to the camera angle.
Car to Use: A lightweight one.

<7.3 Toytanic 2>

Remember the first Toytanic? Well, the developers decided to put the 
star in the exact same place on Toytanic 2. You get to do the whole 
thing over again. In case you missed my advice for the first one, here 
it is: This is one of the hardest stars to get in the game, maybe even 
THE hardest. Towards the end of the track there is a big long stretch of 
deck followed by a red ramp. The trick is to speed down the right 
corridor of the deck and up the right side of the ramp. This will launch 
you towards a deck chair. Turn to the left and hit the top of the 
backrest of the chair and pray that you are going fast enough, and in 
the right direction. This one takes many, many tries and alot of luck to 
get.
Car to Use: Anything Fast
