What is this FAQ  1.3
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

First off I have gotten this idea when I saw how many people were
asking questions about  different things about create a character mode,
and I noticed there was not a  FAQ written that could help them so, I
figured that I could help all of those people since  I knew basically
what that option was about,  and have enough time to  search and write
down every option in there If you have any questions or comments or
have found any mistakes or have found a way to make a celebrity look
alike, send me an e-mail at  mat2810@cs.com and I will try to fix the
mistake or add your character on  the FAQ on my next update and I will
also be sure to give you full credit of it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Version History
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

1.0- First started the FAQ, wrote down all the  options in  every menu.
1.1- Formatted these options to FAQ form and  hopefully will get it all
     written.
1.2- Added the DO's and DON'Ts section; Changed Art at the top.
1.3- Added a couple of Celebrity Look Alikes

Last Updated- Saturday, December 01, 2001

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
The DOs and DON'Ts
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
There are many things that will either make your created skater either
really good or really bad. Some of the ideas may not be so abvious, and
others may be quite obvious.

The DON'Ts

- Never make the shirt color and the pants color the exact same, it
  will not look as good.

- Do not make your skater too fat or too thin, it may look cool at
  first, but eventually it does not work well when you are looking at
  something.

- Do not make you stats too heavy in just one catagory, all the others
  will be real bad and will end up hurting you.

The DO's

- If you want a skater to have the same color shirt and pants, try to
  find two colors that are close, but not the same.

- Try to make all of your stats somewhat even, (If you do not have any
  idea of how to set them up I gave a few options in the Stats Menu
  area.

- Try to make a specific style of clothing for your skater ie. thug,
  goth, skater, prep etc.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Roster Menu
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

When you first get into the Main Menu of the game, you should notice an
option called  Create Skater.  If you decide you  want to make a skater
that resembles  you or one  of your friends,  go into this option.  The
first screen that appears is a Roster Menu. There is not much to do
here. All it shows is the names of all of your created skaters (up to
four) and some options at the bottom.

If you have made a created character but did not like it very much, go
to that skater and press the Square button, this should delete this
character.

If you have a character on another memory card or save press the Circle
button, this should lead you to a screen resembling the one where you
load your career and the controls are all the same.

If you want to leave this menu press the Triangle button and this
should put you back to the Main Menu.

If you have found a character that you want to change or make a new
one, go to them and press the X button and you will go onto the next
screen.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Main Options Screen
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Name- You can make your name anything that you want to using letters
      numbers and some symbols, the default option is Skater A.

Hometown- You can enter the name that you want your skater to live in,
          once again you have the options of numbers letters and some
          symbols, the default option is Woodland Hills.

Age- You can choose the age of your skater, ages vary anywhere from 5
     years old to 55 years old, and add up by one, so you can choose
     any age within that range.

Style- There are three different styles that each skater can be. Vert,
       Street and All Around. A vert skater should have better Air,
       Hangtime, Ollie, Speed, and Spin, while a street skater should
       have better Switch, Rail Balance, Lip Balance, Manuals, and
       Speed, but an all around skater should have average of every
       thing.

Stance- There are two options here, Regular and Goofy. A regular stance
        is when your feet face the right, and a goofy stance is when
        your feet face the left. These are both true if they are not in
        switch and are looking at them from behind, like the camera
        does when you skate.

Weight- There are many options here- 88, 101, 115, 130, 145, 162, 180,
        198, 217, 238, 254, 281, 304, 328, 352, and 378. All of these
        numbers are in pounds.

Once you have all of these option decided, go to where it says next and
you should go onto the Appearance Menu

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Appearance Menu

In this menu you have to determine what you skater will look like and
wear. Activision defiantly left you plenty of options here.

The only thing that you do when you enter this menu is give your skater

have set him up something close to this.

     Air- XXXXXX

   Speed- XXXXXX
    Spin- XXXXX

  Switch- XXXXXXX

outline of what your skater should be, just an example of what a good
skater of that type would be.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Trick Setup
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

In this menu you can choose what all of your skaters moves and specials
will be. What I usually do since you don't get much money is leave
every thing as is. This way you do not waste any of your money on bad
specials, and do not worry you can get all of the sick score goals with
out using any specials, once you do get enough money, you can re-enter
this option from any of the game play modes except for 2 Player Mode
then buy good ones.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Skate Shop
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Once you are though the other options you will get sent here, once you
are here you can get any board that you have already unlocked from any
character. You can re-enter this option from any of the game play modes
except for 2 Player Mode and change your board.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Secret Characters
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

There are more people that you can get by  holding L1 at  the Main Menu
screen and press U,S,S,T,R,U,C,T the screen will shake in confirmation,
then go to create a skater and enter these names and a pre made
character should appear...
01. Aaron Cammarata
