***_ABOUT THIS FAQ_***

I rented this game, then when I got home, I looked it up 
on GameFAQs.  There were no FAQs for it.  None.  So, I knew
right then that I would make the first FAQ for NFS4:HS.  
After I started playing the game, I knew this would be a 
relatively short FAQ, because the game is pretty straight 
forward.

THIS FAQ HAS BEEN UPDATED FOR THE LAST TIME.  IF THERE IS 
SOMETHING NOT IN THIS FAQ, I'M SORRY.  PLEASE DON'T EMAIL
ME WITH QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS GAME ANY LONGER (COMPLIMENTS
AND/OR DEATH THREATS MAY STILL BE SENT).  KEEP AN EYE OUT
FOR MY NEXT FAQ: 'NEED FOR SPEED:  PORSCHE UNLEASHED!!

This is my second FAQ.  My first one is for Link in the N64
game, Super Smash Bros.  If you get a chance to play that 
game, please check out my FAQ.

A note on the ASCII PSX controller, when printed, it won't
look right unless you print the FAQ in landscape format.

This FAQ can be found at the following sites:

***_HIGH STAKES_***

High Stakes is the fourth in the popular Need For Speed series.
It is named for the new game mode added.  I must say that 
this is the best NFS yet, and one of the better racing games 
I've ever played.  The graphics are second only to Grand 
Turismo, and the controls are better.  This game is way better 
than Ridge Racer Type 4, which I didn't like too well.  

If you have a Dual Shock analog controller, this game is bliss!
If you don't, I would recommend getting one just to feel the
full effect of NFS4:HS.

If you're not a big racing game fan(me), at least give this one 
a rent.  But if you are a big racing game fan, you'll probably
want to buy it.  




***_CONTROLS_***

If you don't have a dual shock controller with analog, you 
can't experience this game completely.  I recommend sticking 
with Control Type A:

      ___________                                    ___________
   L2:rear view  |                                  |           R2:shift down

         \________/      steer                     \________/

 To turn the display on/off, hold triangle for 1 second
 To honk your horn, press d pad up
 To change the music press L1+R1 until you have the track you want
*To turn on your headlights, press L1+d pad up
 To turn on your turn signals, press L1+d pad left or right, again to turn off.
 To turn on your hazard lights, press L1+d pad down, again to turn off.
 When picking a car, press square, this brings up a screen where you can turn 
 damage off and choose manual or automatic transmission, automatic is the default.

* in hot pursuit mode(you're the cops), this will turn the siren and lights, on/off.



                                     
***_SECRET CODES_***

     Use all cop cars on any track:
          Go to the user name screen and type in NFS_PD,
          _ being a space.  You can now use all the cars 
          on all tracks.  Like the German police car on 
          the Canadian track.  Yawn.  

     Phantom Car:
          Go to the user name screen and type in FLASH, 
          you can use the Phantom Car, but you can't save.
          This car is _SWEET!_

     Police Helicopter:
          Go to the user name screen and type in WHIRLY, 
          you can use the police helicopter, but only on
          Test Drive Mode, and saving is disabled.  This
          is pretty cool.

     Titan Car:
          Go to the user name screen and type in HOTROD,
          you can now use the Titan Car.  _THIS IS THE 
          COOLEST CAR ON THE GAME!_  It goes in excess of
          220 mph!  Saving is disabled.
     
     DUI:
          Pick any mode, track, and car, then press start.
          immediately hold d pad up, R1 and L2, keep holding
          them until the race starts.  The picture is all
          psychadelic, like you're drunk.  If you want to 
          know why you should not drive drunk, play the game
          in this mode, you'll never want to touch alcohol.

     Outta my Way!:
          Pick any mode, track, and car, then press start.
          Immediately hold d pad left, square, and circle.
          Keep holding them until the race starts.  Now you
          can cause the other cars to wreck by just barely
          bumping them!  This works really well on Hot Pursuit
          mode when you're the cops.

     Super Cop Cars:
          To use the Super Cop Cars, you have to arrest 10 
          speeders in Hot Persuit Mode(playing as the cops).
          You have to do this on each track to get that track's
          super cop car.

     Moneybags:
          ***_NOTE_***  I have not tried this code, and cannot
          confirm it.  Go to the user name screen and type in 
          STJOHN.

     Turbo:
          ***_NOTE_***  I have not tried this code, and cannot
          confirm it.  Pick any mode, track, and car, then press
          start.  Immediately hold d pad up, triangle, and x.
          Keep holding them until the race starts.  Now you can 
          use tubos.  The way I understand it, you can't steer 
          while the turbo is going.  I think.

     0.0:
          ***_NOTE_***  I have not tried this code, and cannot
          confirm it.  Pick any mode, track, and car, then press
          start.  Immediately hold d pad down, triangl, and x.
          You can accelerate from 0 to 60 in under a second!
          The way I understand this one, it differs from Turbo
          because you can steer.  You must press down on the D-pad
          for this one to work.

     Extra Music
          Just go to Audio Options from the main menu, then go
          to CD Player, go all the way down and there are two 
          music tracks turned off, turn them on and you can 
          listen to them during the game.

     Drive Special Edition Corvette
          You must place first in the Corvette Pro Cup to get
          this extra fast 'Vette.

     Drive Special Edition Porsche 911
          You must place first in the Porsche Pro Cup to get
          this extra fast 911.

***_GAME MODES_***

NFS4:HS has three game modes that can be played by either one
or two players:  Test Drive, Single Race, and Hot Pursuit.
Let's take a look at each of these:

     Test Drive:
          In this mode you can take one lap on any open track,
          with any available car.  Use this to get the feel of
          each individual track.  This mode has traffic, so it's
          not just you riding around.

     Single Race:
          Here you can take two laps on any open track, but you 
          have to buy a car.  You can race alone, with one other 
          car, or a full grid.  No prize money.

     Hot Pursuit:
          Before Grand Theft Auto, before Driver, there was NFS3:
          Hot Pursuit.  The first game that let you run from the
          cops.  This great mode is back and better than ever.
          You can either pick a super car and run from the cops
          on any open track, or pick a cop car and bust purps.

          In the cop mode, press L1 to bring up a menu in the 
          lower right corner, then press the proper button for 
          backup, road blocks, spike belts, etc.

There are two modes you can only play as one player:  Tournament,
and Special Events:

     Tournament:
          Buy a car and complete a series of races for prize money.
          Use the money to buy both car upgrades and new cars.  
          You are required to have different cars for different 
          tournaments.

     Special Events:
          These are special tournaments that have both tougher
          qualifying requirements and entry fees.  Special Events
          are not for novices!

There is only one mode specific to two player play:  High Stakes Mode.

     High Stakes:
          In olden times, the ancient ones would drag race for car 
          titles.  So it do be in High Stakes mode.  You think that
          Car you've spent so much time and money on is The Sh*t?
          Does your friend think the same thing about his car?  See
          who is really the greatest by plugging in each of your 
          memory cards and racing.  The winner gets the loser's car.
          Forever.  That car is completely erased from the loser's
          card!  ***_TIP_***  save your NFS game to another memory
          card before playing, just in case you lose.  Just in case.

    controller?

A:  No, but I would recommend it.
