    (Taken from PS book)
    INTRODUCTION
    
    This is Deadside,
    the Wasteland, the nothing
    Beyond the bone-backed gates. Here
    the true darkness
    at the heart of all things
    is made real.
    What we see in death's dominion
    is as void as a dead man's gaze, as cold
    as the light from a dying star.
    
    Dr. Victor Batrachian
    
    There is a place beyond death, where every soul that has ever shuffled off this 
    mortal coil finds its spiritual home. It is a place that has no boundaries, no 
    hope, no past and no future, trapped as it is in an unending present. A country 
    of the dead, where the massed ranks of billions of souls range across a 
    limitless expanse to a dead horizon, shuffling through the echoing halls of 
    vast, funereal palaces, trudging over blasted plains, putrid with morbid 
    vegetation. This is the place known as Deadside.
    For many thousands of years, the ShadowMen have protected the world of the 
    living against the threats crossing over from the spiritual plane known as 
    Deadside - the place where everyone goes, without exception, when they die.
    Mike LeRoi is the current heir to the mysteries of the ancient lineage - bearer 
    of the Mask of Shadows. When darkness falls, he becomes the Walker Between the 
    Worlds, Immortal Voodoo Warrior, Taker of Souls, Lord of Dead Side...
            ...the Shadow Man.
    
    SHADOW MAN - THE VIDEO GAME
    
    As a god I step forth
    upon the writhing
    suppurating surface
    of the Deadside serpent.
    What sleep is here?
    What dreams there are in the unctuous coilings
    of the snake's mortal shuffling.
    Weapon in my hand.
    My hand the arching deathblow
    at the End of All Things.
    The horror. The horror.
    I embrace it...
    
    Set against the mysterious backdrop of Voodoo mythology, Shadow Man puts you in 
    the role of Mike Leroi, English graduate turned hired assassin. Operating 
    within the mephitic seedy underworld of New Orleans, Mike has the ability, at 
    will, to cross over into the Deadside where he becomes the Shadow Man.
    The story begins with a dream - a prophetic nightmare vision of Armageddon, the 
    day that the dead rise up and walk the earth, an Apocalypse that has its 
    origins firmly rooted in Deadside.
    When Mama Nettie - the powerful voodoo sorceress who created the Shadow Man by 
    forcibly implanting the powerful Shadowmask in Mike's chest - dreams of the 
    coming Apocalypse, she commands Shadow Man, her only weapon against the coming 
    storm, to stop it from becoming a reality.
    Destined to carry out Nettie's orders in our world (Liveside) and Deadside, for 
    as long as he is of use to her, Mike must step across the veil into Deadside 
    and ultimately venture into the place where all killers and madmen are 
    consigned when they die... the Asylum.
    The future of humanity is in the Shadow Man's hands, in a game that plunges you 
    into the darkly beating heart of all that is, has ever been, and ever will be 
    evil.
    
    2. Before you start...
    I will explain what I did when I encountered the glitch. I have not made up any 
    of these glitches I have encounter every one of them.
    
    3. N64 Glitches
    Well, here we go.
    
    In the Temple of Life (Marcher) in the room with the caged Govi, Pull the 
    switch then jump down into the lava. Now jump down to the floor, and run to the 
    ramp. Now turn around, and look at the cage. Now wait until the cage is about 
    five inches from closing then jump to the cage. You should grab on the ledge 
    with only two inches before it closes. Climb up. I went straight through the 
    bars instead of being knocked off. Weird.
    
    Now here is a fun glitch (if you want to a call it a glitch). Charge your 
    shadow gun then grab a dark soul. Your gun will automatically fire, and you can 
    fire your gun while the video of the dark soul going into Mike plays.
    
    This one I encountered when I pulled out my shadow gun and charge it. I ran 
    across a skin bridge. A video of Mike crossing the started to play, but instead 
    the camera zoomed in on the bridge. Then the camera stayed locked onto the 
    bridge.
    
    This is probably the most talked about glitch. Sometimes the dark souls will 
    reappear. I encountered this glitch in the Temple of Life (Marcher).
    
    Another common glitch I encounter is when you walk through a doorway or by a 
    rail Mike will get stuck. The only way to counter this glitch is by pressing 
    the jump button. Also you can get stuck on the rotating fire-spitting poles.
    
    In Asylum: Playrooms in the room before the violator I was standing near the 
    door when one of those machine gun wielding freaks walked straight through the 
    door even though the door was closed.
    
    This is the second most common glitch I experienced it a lot. For some reason 
    in Deadside the gargoyles for some reason would get stuck in the wall, and they 
    could not get out. The only way to hurt them is by shooting their body, and if 
    it hit the wings then they will take no damage.
    
    In Asylum: Lava Ducts in the room with the slanted wall with all the platforms; 
    I was climbing up the wall when I slipped and fell to the bottom. I turned 
    around and looked up. Next to the platform that I was standing on was a chain 
    saw wielding freak. For some reason he could walk up and down slanted walls.
    
    In the Prison level, I saw a dead guard floating in the air like he was on an 
    invisible bed. Weird.
    
    Also in the Prison level (this is not a glitch, but it was pretty cool to see), 
    I came to one of the prisoners who head pops off. After I killed him, I saw on 
    the ceiling a black spot. Turns out that the spot was the prisoner's head 
    somehow got stuck on the lights on the ceiling. Weird, but cool.
    
    I went to a skin bridge, and I walked towards it at an angle. When the video of 
    Mike crossing the bridge started to play, but instead Mike fell off the cliff. 
    Then the load screen came, and the game acted like nothing happened.
    
    In the final temple, I was in the room with the swing hammer and the platform 
    going up and down. I was standing still, and the hammer was swinging behind me. 
    Then suddenly the hammer hit me, and I flew forward. I hit the moving platform, 
    and I fell in between the moving platform and the platform in front of the 
    hammer and straight into the lava.
    
    Another glitch (which also comes from WMJ87) is that you can get into the cage 
    of the true forms in the hall (in Asylum: Engine Blocks) right before the room 
    with the final fight against Legion.
    
    Here's how he did it. This is a glitch on the last part of the game. You can 
    squeeze yourself between two of these Trueform cages and keep side-jumping to 
    get on top of them. From there you can reach both of the Trueforms from the 
    last part of the game.
    
    A video of this can be seen on Youtube. Type Shadowman- get into the last 
    Trueform cage.
    
    
    4. Playstation Glitches
    There is one glitch I encountered a lot in the PS version. For some reason when 
    I would hold down R1 the controls would lock up for a few seconds.
    
    Another glitch is this game crashes everyone once in a while. But when I played 
    through the game it only crashed at the Swamp and New York Tenements.
    
    At the swamp, I was at the area where you get the shotgun. I walked into the 
    water, and Mike got stuck on the wall. When he finally made it into the water. 
    His front torso was bent back and he was staring at the camera. I could not 
    move him, nor could I use any items.
    
    At the temple of life, when I go through the back entrance I would see one of 
    those small two head enemies stuck in the wall.
    
    Like in the N64 version, for some reason the gargoyles would get stuck in the 
    walls.
    
    I have encountered another weird glitch. I locked onto an enemy, and Mike 
    started floating towards the enemy even though I was not pressing up on the D-
    pad.
    
    For some reason sometimes when I would climb a bloodfall Mike's limbs would 
    lock up, and it looked like he was gliding up the walls.
    
    I charged the shadow gun, and I ran into a room with sniper hogs. I released 
    the Square, but Mike did not fire. It should his gun still charged. I mashed 
    Square several times and he still did not fire. He finally fired after I mashed 
    the Square button several more times. 
    
    Another glitch I encountered happened with the shadow gun. I did not have my 
    shadow gun out. I pressed Square and Mike did not pull out the shadow gun and 
    shot. I mashed X and Mike didn't fire. I pressed the circle button and Mike 
    pulled out his gun and it worked just fine.
    
    In the Down St., also in the Asylum: Playrooms, and also (if I remember right) 
    New York Tenements, I encountered the dog enemies, but for some reason light 
    was shooting out of the dogs like I had killed them. But they could walk 
    around, but they could not attack and could not be killed.
    
    Another strange one is I was in Down St. Mordant when I saw light shooting out 
    the wall. It was shaped in a ball. I followed the path and found that it was 
    one of the dog enemies that had lighting shooting out of them.
    
    Note: In the previous few glitches when I saw light I mean the light you see 
    after you kill an enemy, right before they explode, that green light shoots out 
    of them. That is the light that I'm talking about.
    
    There is one glitch where I would kill an enemy, but for some reason the enemy 
    would get stuck in the death animation, and they would just repeat the death 
    animation over and over. But sometimes this can be countered by shooting them 
    again or running through them. But that does not always work.
    
    This is probably the weirdest glitch that I have encountered. I was at the 
    Bayou. I was at the shed by the lake where you get the Shotgun and a dark soul. 
    First Mike got stuck on the wall. I jumped but could not get off the wall. 
    After several jumps and trying to run away, I finally got away. But then I 
    jumped into the lake. I did not surface immediately. But when I did, Mike's 
    upper torso was twisted backwards, and he was facing the camera. And his legs 
    were twisted. Mike could not move. All he did was glide across the surface of 
    the lake.
    
    5. PC Version
    Invisible Duppie (this glitch was encountered by WMJ87)
    He writes that he was walking through Deadside. He came to the big room right 
    after the Marrow Gate. Well, he killed a duppie, but then he ran into the room 
    and was being attacked. He killed all the enemies, but he was still being 
    attacked. So he turned on the debug enemies cheat. And he saw that there was an 
    enemy in the wall. It's stuck in the wall somewhere and it hits every other 
    second, making it impossible to even walk in the level without dying. I've 
    found it once with the invincible + debug enemies cheat on so that's how I 
    know.
    
    A video of this glitch can be seen on Youtube. Type in Shadowman Ridiculous 
    glitch
    
    
    6. Shadow Man: 2econd Coming
    Note: This glitch is for the second Shadow Man game for the PS2.
    
    This glitch comes from Pretty Boy Floyd. He writes Go to the church and look up 
    in the sky. There should be a small black dot in the sky. Use the Levitate Code 
    and float up to it. You will find that it's Netti floating up there right above 
    the area where she is also in the tombs in the church. You also have to use the 
    rifle scope to see it. This glitch however can only be done during the day.
