    =========================================================================
    
    INTRODUCTION - Jurassic park: Warpath is in my opinion a rather fun beat 'em up
    with some good extras that makes it ideal for those like me who think dinosaurs
    are damn cool!  Although some of the jumping moves are a bit unrealistic the
    general movement and noises of the dinosaurs and the sheer weight in which they
    crash around makes it look very like how dinosaurs must have fought for real. 
    Although the various fighters have pretty similar moves, the differences in
    speed, height and length allows for some surprisingly strategic fighting. 
    Throw in health bonuses and 3D arenas you can uses to damage each other with
    and the fighting is brutish, simple but very spectacular!
    
    I have listed moves for all the dinosaurs as well as how to unlock all the
    secret stuff.  I have also included separate profiles of each dinosaur, where I
    include the info found in the games excellent Museum mode and some extra info
    courtesy of Encarta. Think of the info as the equivalent of a character profile
    in a "normal" beat 'em up.  Hope you enjoy this FAQ and find it as fun to read
    as I did to write, Dinosaurs ROCK!!!

    The latest version of this guide is always posted first at www.gamefaqs.com, if
    you found this guide on another site please check gamefaqs to make sure you
    have the latest updates before emailing me with any questions.  I may have
    already answered it!
    
    REVISIONS - Version 1.0 (10/10/2002). First Version.
    
    Provided full movelists for all dinosaurs, profiles and unlocking all the
    secret stuff. Plan to add more strategy and maybe more combo data in the next
    update, possibly.
    
    Final Version (08/09/2003) Just tweaked a few things, corrected some mistakes. 
    It's a fun little game, but time to put this FAQ to bed officially.  I'd like
    to see more Dinosaur flavoured beat 'em up, but it seems I am in minority of
    one.. ah well.

    ******************** 3) DINOSAUR PROFILES AND INFO ***********************
    ==========================================================================
    
    I have included all this extra info separately so if you are just interested in
    the fighting and movelists then that's all you get in the relevant section. 
    But as there is added info included in the game for the dinosaur nut, I thought
    I would include it (and more) here in this FAQ for those who are interested! 
    At the bottom of this section I have reproduced the family tree from the game
    so you can see how all these dino's are related =)
    
    **************************************************************************
    a) ACRO
    
    Full Name: Acrocanthosaurus - "High Spine Lizard"
    Height: 6 metres
    Length: 12 metres
    Weight: 2700 kg
    Lived: Cretaceous period 105 - 115 million years ago
    Genealogy: Therapoda - Carnosauria
    
    Info Burst: Acrocanthosaurus was a close relative of Spinosaurus which was the
    largest, but not the only sail-backed dinosaur.  Acrocanthosaurus  had a much
    smaller and lower sail.   Closely related to Allosaurus, it lived in the early
    Cretaceous..  Fossils have been found in Oklahoma and Texas.  Unrelated
    sail-back dinosaurs have also been found in North Africa.
    
    **************************************************************************
    b) ANKY
    
    Full Name: Ankylosaurus - "Fused Lizard"
    Height: 1 metre
    Length: 7 - 10 metres
    Weight: 4500 kg
    Lived: Cretaceous period 70 - 165 million years ago
    Genealogy: Anklosaurid - Anlylosauria
    
    Info Burst: The Ankylosaurae family of plant-eating dinosaurs (herbivores) were
    found worldwide during the later Cretaceous period, which ended about 65
    million years ago. They moved on all fours, and their broad, low bodies were
    covered with rows of bony plates, which ended in a clublike tail. Some species
    had spines on the head, along the back, or on the tail. They were related to
    the stegosaurs, another type of armoured dinosaur that lived earlier. The
    slow-moving ankylosaurs probably resembled armadillos, and their fossils
    usually occur in regions that were once swampy.
    
    **************************************************************************
    c) GIGA
    
    Full Name: Giganotasaurus - "Giant Southern Lizard"
    Height: 6 metres
    Length: 12 metres
    Weight: 7250 kg
    Lived: Cretaceous period 100 million
    Genealogy: Therapoda - Carnosauria
    
    Info Burst: Giganotosaurus, very large meat-eating dinosaur that lived in South
    America in the late Cretaceous Period. Palaeontologists believe that
    Giganotosaurus may be the largest meat-eating, or carnivorous, dinosaur that
    ever existed. The femur (thighbone) of Giganotosaurus fossils was longer than
    the femur of any Tyrannosaurus rex (previously the largest known meat-eating
    dinosaur) fossil, but some palaeontologists believe the legs of Tyrannosaurus
    rex and Giganotosaurus were about the same length. Giganotosaurus appears to
    have been more heavily built than the largest tyrannosaur. Even though
    Giganotosaurus ran on two legs like Tyrannosaurus, and both were gigantic
    meat-eaters, Giganotosaurus lived nearly 30 million years before Tyrannosaurus
    rex walked on the earth, and the two dinosaurs do not appear to be closely
    related. The form of the hipbone fossils found in 1995 suggests that it was
    more closely related to Allosaurus than to Tyrannosaurus.
    
    **************************************************************************
    d) RAPTOR
    
    Full Name: Mega Raptor - "Huge Robber"
    Height: 4 metres
    Length: 8 metres
    Weight: 1800 kg
    Lived: Cretaceous period 87 million years ago
    Genealogy: Therapoda - Maniraptora
    
    Info Burst: This Cretaceous Carnivore is guessed to have grown between 25 and
    30 feet and length, while standing at an impressive thirteen feet tall. One of
    this predators biggest asset was its 13 inch sickle claw on its feet. Most of
    the small "raptors", as they are so often miscalled, grew on average about 8 or
    9 feet long, weighing anywhere from 150 to 185 pounds. But Megaraptor, at
    nearly 30 feet is truly a giant among giants. Hardly anything of Megaraptor has
    been found so far. Excavations in Argentina have found the giant claw, a hind
    leg bone and a foreleg bone. That's it.
    
    **************************************************************************
    e) STYGI
    
    Full Name: Stygimoloch - "Demon from the River Styx"
    Height: 1 metre
    Length: 2 metre
    Weight: 1000 kg
    Lived: Cretaceous 65-76 million years ago
    Genealogy: Cerapoda - Pachycephalosauria
    
    Info Burst: Stygimoloch was a thick-skulled plant-eating dinosaur (a
    pachycephalosaur) that walked on two legs. This unusual-looking dinosaur had
    bony spikes and bumps on its skull; the many horns ranged up to 4 inches (100
    mm) long. Pachycephalosaurs probably engaged in head-butting both as a defence
    and as intra-species rivalry.
    
    **************************************************************************
    f) STYRAC
    
    Full Name: Styracosaurus - "Spiked Lizard"
    Height: 2 metres
    Length: 5.5 metres
    Weight: 3000 kg
    Lived: Cretaceous period 65 million years ago
    Geneology: Cerapoda - Ceratopsia
    
    Info Burst: Styracosaurus was a dinosaur that walked on four short legs. This
    large plant-eater had a six-spiked frill projecting from the back of its skull.
    It also had an upward-pointing horn on its nose (2 feet (60 cm) long and 6
    inches (15 cm) wide), and two small horns above its eyes. These spikes and the
    horn probably provided protection from predators, and were possibly used in
    mating rituals and rivalry. It had a short, thick, pointed tail, a large, bulky
    body, a large skull and a beak. Styracosaurus hatched from eggs.
    
    **************************************************************************
    g) SUCHO
    
    Full Name: Suchomimus - "Crocodile Mimic"
    Height: 4 metres
    Length: 11 metres
    Weight: 3600 kg
    Lived: Cretaceous period 100 million years ago
    Geneology: Therapoda - Tetanurae
    
    Info Burst: Suchomimus had a two-foot-high sail on its lower back. This
    dinosaur had a very long snout [1.2 m (4 ft) long] and huge, foot-long thumb
    claws although it looked very ferocious it was actually omnivorous and lived
    mostly on fish and other small water dwelling creatures.
    
    **************************************************************************
    h) T-REX
    
    Full Name: Tyrannosaurus Rex - "Tyrant Lizard King"
    Height: 6 metres
    Length: 14 metres
    Weight: 6000 kg
    Lived: Cretaceous period 70 million years ago
    Genealogy: Therapoda - Tyrannosauria
    
    Info Burst: Tyrannosaurus Rex was a large, bipedal, carnivorous dinosaur, of
    the latter part of the Mesozoic era.  Tyrannosaurus was well equipped for
    preying on the large herbivorous dinosaurs of the time, about 70 million years
    ago. Its long skull was equipped with powerful jaws in which were set sharp,
    doubly serrated teeth, some of which were 15 cm (6 in) long. The tiny
    forelimbs, seemingly out of proportion to the rest of the animal's massive
    body, each bore two sharp claws; the powerful hind limbs each were armed with
    three forward-pointing claws, well suited for tearing flesh, and a fourth
    backward-pointing claw. Fossils that were found in North America (Montana and
    South Dakota) and Mongolia in strata of Upper Cretaceous age indicate that the
    species came into being and became extinct in the relatively short space of a
    few million years
    
    **************************************************************************
    i) CARCHAR
    
    Full Name: Carcharodontosaurus - "Shark Tooth Lizard"
    Height: 4 metres
    Length: 12.5 metres
    Weight: 7250 kg
    Lived: Cretaceous period 100 million years ago
    Genealogy: Therapoda - Carnosauria
    
    Info Burst: Carcharodontosaurus was a huge meat-eating dinosaur from the
    Cretaceous period. This North African carnosaur had a massive tail, a bulky
    body, and heavy bones. Its arms were short and had three-fingered hands with
    sharp claws. Although Carcharodontosaurus was larger than T. rex, its brain was
    smaller. Carcharodontosaurus was closely related to Giganotosaurus but not to
    T. rex. Carcharodontosaurus was a more primitive dinosaur than T. rex.
    
    **************************************************************************
    j) PACHY
    
    Full Name: Pachycephalosaurus	- "Thick Head Lizard"
    Height: 3 metres
    Length: 6 metres
    Weight: 1800 kg
    Lived: Cretaceous period 65 - 76 million years ago
    Genealogy: Cerapoda - Pachychephalosauria
    
    Info Burst: Pachycephalosaurus, plant-eating, birdlike, beaked dinosaur that
    lived in North America in the late Cretaceous Period. Pachycephalosaurus had a
    25 cm (10 in) thick, bony, domed head with a crown of spikes and bumps. The
    thickness of the skull left little space for a brain, which was very small for
    the size of the head. Because of its durability, the skull has been better
    preserved than any other part of the skeleton. Its small leaf-shaped teeth were
    not designed to grind plants efficiently; so much of the breakdown of plant
    material is thought to have occurred in a large fermenting gut, similar to that
    of cows, or in a gizzard, as used by some birds
    Fossils of Pachycephalos.aurus are quite rare, perhaps because the dinosaurs
    lived mostly in drier upland areas rather than near rivers or the coast. Their
    bodies were designed like battering rams-the spine could lock rigidly to
    withstand the force of impact. The thick skull of Pachycephalosaurus may have
    allowed it to butt heads with other Pachycephalosaurus dinosaurs without
    injuring its brain; these dinosaurs also may have fought by ramming their heads
    into the soft bellies of other dinosaurs.
    
    **************************************************************************
    k) SPINO
    
    Full Name:  Spinosaurus - "Spiny Reptile"
    Height: 5 metres
    Length: 10 metres
    Weight: 4500 kg
    Lived: Cretaceous period 110 million years ago
    Genealogy: Therapoda - Carnosauria
    
    Info Burst: Spinosaurus' sail may have been for heat dissipation - it lived in
    a swampy environment near the equator during the warm Cretaceous period. The
    sail may have also been used to attract mates or seem bigger than it was.
    
    **************************************************************************
    l) TRIKE
    
    Full Name: Triceratops - "Three Horn Dinosaur"
    Height: 3 metres
    Length: 9 metres
    Weight: 5400 - 11000 kg
    Lived: Cretaceous period 65 - 72 million years ago
    Genealogy: Cerapoda - Ceratopsia
    
    Info Burst: Triceratops, genus of quadruped, herbivorous dinosaurs weighing
    several tons, that lived during the Cretaceous period, more than 65 million
    years ago. In all but the earliest species of the ceratopsian group-to which
    Triceratops belonged-one or more horns protruded from the front of the skull,
    and all ceratopsians had a parrotlike beak formed by a unique bone, the
    rostral. Triceratops had three horns-one centrally located just above the
    nostrils and a pair that projected from the forehead-hence the name. The skull,
    more than 1.8 m (6 ft) long in some fossil specimens, was quite large in
    proportion to the rest of the body. A bony frill at the back of the skull
    protected the neck and served to anchor powerful jaw and neck muscles. The
    ceratopsians appear to have migrated east to North America, where they became
    extinct at the close of the Cretaceous period.
    
    **************************************************************************
    m) CRYO
    
    Full Name:  Cryolophosaurus - "Frozen Crested Lizard"
    Height: 3.5 metres
    Length: 6 metres
    Weight: 1350 kg
    Lived: Jurassic period - 190 million years ago
    Genealogy: Therapoda - Allosauridae
    
    Info Burst: Cryolophosaurus had a forward-facing crest on its head. It is also
    known (informally) as Elvisaurus, due to the crest's likeness to Elvis
    Presley's hairdo. The Antarctic, where Cryolophosaurus was found, was warmer
    when Cryolophosaurus lived than it is now - during the Jurassic period, the
    Antarctic was closer to the equator and part of a larger continent - plus, the
    climate in general was warmer.
    
    **************************************************************************
    n) ALBERTO
    
    Full Name: Albertosaurus - "Lizard from Alberta"
    Height: 4 metres
    Length: 9 metres
    Weight: 2700 kg
    Lived: Cretaceous period 80 million years ago
    Genealogy: Therapoda - Coelurosaurs
    
    Info Burst: Albertosaurus, formerly known as Gorgosaurus, genus of carnivorous
    dinosaur that lived in Alberta and Montana (Canada) in the Late Cretaceous
    period from about 100 million years ago to the time of the extinction of the
    dinosaurs, about 65 million years ago. Not quite as large as the related
    Tyrannosaurus rex, the bipedal Albertosaurus had a similar appearance and
    weighed up to about 3 tons.

    ==========================================================================
    ********************* 4) CONTROLS AND SHARED MOVES ***********************
    ==========================================================================
    
    All the dinosaurs share some moves:
    
    L1 and L2 will side step or side jump the dinosaur left or right
    
    R1 blocks mid and high attacks
    
    D+R1 blocks Low attacks
    
    R2 taunts, this will build the rage metre up, when the rage metre is full the
    screen flashes red, to perform a rage attack hold R2 and press any attack
    button to inflict a massive damage combo on your opponent.
    
    forward, forward (f, f) will perform a front dash/hop
    
    back, back (b, b) will perform a back dash/hop
    
    Circle + Cross when pressed while near a fallen opponent allows you to jump on
    top of them and pin them down.  Keep bashing circle and cross to keep the pin
    going.  To escape a pin, press any attack button as fast as you can.
    
    Energy can be replenished by eating the humans or animals that stray onto the
    fighting area, but you must use a low bite move to get them all they will just
    get squashed or flung away.  You can also knock dinosaurs into rocks, flaming
    barrels, electric fences etc, But don't stumble into them yourself!
    
    Each character has two dash attacks, to perform these successfully you must
    watch the dinosaurs animation, when it reaches the final part of its dash and
    appears to be coming out of it that is the time to initiate the final button
    press.
    
    Here is a lovely rendition of the d-pad positions:
    
     O   O   O
      \  |  /              --O means "forward" (f)
    
     O--   --O             \
                            O  means "down-fowards" (df)
      /  |  \
     O   O   O             O-- means "back" (b)
    
    
    A capital F or D or U means press and HOLD that button while performing the
    rest of the button presses.
    
    If the f, d, u, b is in small case then that means just tap. A comma separating
    the commands means the buttons must be pressed in quick succession, but not at
    the same time.  A Plus sign + indicates when two buttons must be pressed
    together.

    Acro is another great dinosaur to start with.  He lacks some of T-Rexs power
    and defence, but has a little more sped to play with.  He also has a couple of
    counters to throw into the mix making him a more thoughtful version of T-Rex
    and therefore one of the best dinosaurs in the game. You can play Acro
    effectively either offensively or defensively.  Against the faster and shorter
    dinosaurs you should use his tail swipes and lunges to push them back so you
    can charge up your rage meter.  With the larger types, make use of your counter
    type moves and blocks to throw them off balance.  You can hit back faster than
    they can.  Acro has superb reach with his long neck and snapping jaws, use his
    bite and snap attacks to keep poking opponents back giving you time to follow
    up with a slash or charge.

    STRATEGY
    Anky may be small and low, but he is one mean dinosaur, far superior to his
    fellow quadrupeds Trike and Styrac.  He can run quickly and has an excellent
    reach with his tail swipes.  It's easy for him to dodge high attacks from the
    large dinosaurs and he can perform several counter moves as well. His attack
    speed is surprisingly fast and his light, fast tail strikes and body slams can
    wear an opponent down quickly.  The secret to Anky is to keep him coming, be
    relentless.  Be aware that some of the bipedal dinosaurs can actually jump on
    top of Anky, so try not to get underneath them as you can suffer severe damage.

    STRATEGY
    Giga is the largest of all the dinosaurs and thus the most powerful.  He is
    however the most sluggish.  He has a number of counter moves to compensate for
    this, but he still needs to be played in a fairly defensive manner.  You'll
    find yourself under a barrage of fast attacks from almost all dinosaurs.  Its
    best to stick with the basic moves to push opponents back and give yourself
    space to power up the rage gauge and try and time one humungous retaliation. 
    Giga unleashed can demolish even T-Rex health bar in a few seconds.  But it's
    all about holding back until you see an opening.  Don't let enemies bait you
    into attacking to soon.  You'll be knocked flat.

    STRATEGY
    Mean!  The raptor is fast on its feet, and like its other friends in the small
    two-legged category it is much more offensively orientated.  To win with Raptor
    is to wage a war of attrition.  Lots of small snaps, jabs, sweeps and leaps. 
    Keeping up a barrage of attacks that doesn't give your opponent time to
    breathe. You basically need to take advantage of every pause, and always get
    stuck in when an opponent in floored.  Raptor is not too strong and a few well
    placed heavy attacks from a larger dinosaur can knock that health bar down to
    nothing.  So keep cool and never let them get their rage meter powered up. In
    real life Raptor type dinosaurs hunted in packs and several could worry a much
    larger dinosaur to death.  You're on your own here, but the principle is the
    same.

    STRATEGY
    The medium dinosaurs like Sygi, Pachy, Spino and raptor mix excellent speed,
    with great offensive power and a nice range of defensive moves.  Stygi is a
    prime example of the effectiveness of this blend.  Like Pachy he uses his thick
    head to butt, shove and strike opponents.  Using Stygi you should keep up a
    strong barrage of short, sharp butts and jabs. If you opponent has a speed edge
    then throw in some counters to keep them off balance.  If your opponent has
    power and size and keeps pushing you back then use the side steps and charges
    to get in close and knock them down.

    STRATEGY
    Styrac is a scrappy little fighter.  Has a nice turn of speed, but is most
    effective if he can knock an opponent down and punish them on the ground. A lot
    of his moves have a significant wind up time, more so than Anky, making it easy
    for him to be pushed back or poked into oblivion.  Him and Trike are probably
    the two trickiest dinosaurs to do well with.  They don't manoeuvre so well
    either and if a sliding move misses they are vulnerable as they recover. 
    Basically you need to get in and floor your opponent as quickly as possible, he
    can soak up some damage, but he's not as tough as Trike and especially against
    the speedy Spino or raptor he can have a tough time even landing a blow. Just
    make sure you make that blow count.

    STRATEGY
    He's a funny looking dinosaur, but his long arms and long snout give him a good
    range advantage.  He has pretty average speed and power; he basically plays
    like a less powerful T-Rex and a less speedy Carchar.  However, he does have
    some of the best ranged strikes of the large bipedal dinosaurs and his rolling
    smash comes out very quickly and can be an excellent high damage move.  Keep
    pushing faster opponents back until you have a chance to hit 'em with it.

    STRATEGY
    As you would expect, T-Rex is a force to be reckoned with.  He is the fastest
    of the two-legged large carnivores and has a tonne of power to play with.
    He has a long range as well so it's hard to judge a safe distance from him. 
    Playing as T-Rex is rather like picking Paul Phoenix or Ryu, he's easy to learn
    and easy to master.  But you should not get to complacent.  If you have ever
    seen those documentaries about T-Rex you'll know they can be vulnerable.  The
    four-legged dinosaurs have an easier time dodging his best attacks and his size
    means that in time it takes for him to go in to a low attack, he can be knocked
    off his feet with an Anky tail swipe or gouged by Trike.  The smaller and
    nippier dinosaurs like Stygi can run rings around him and cause a lot of grief
    with their armoury of deflection feint and counter moves.  The key to success
    with T-Rex is to keep it simple.  Push opponents away with big power moves,
    taunt to quickly fill the rage gauge and then smash them up with a few well
    powered up moves.

    Like all the trim two-legged dinosaurs, Pachy has speed and plenty of offensive

    nightmare for slower larger dinosaurs to battle. Keep Pachy moving and in the
    face of the large carnivores and his barrage of headbutts and kicks will wear
    them down.  Against the four-legged types he should use his great mobility as
    he is in more danger of being floored by a fast tail swipe or quick throw. 
    Against dinosaurs of the same type like Spino and Stygi you've got a real fight
    on you hands.  Whoever can master the feints, counters and Rage Gauge will come
    out on top here.

    knock you down and jumps on you, you can say goodbye to the rest of the round. 
    Also make use of Spino's manoeuvrability to catch some energy boosting snacks

    Cryo is the "oldest" dinosaur in this motley bunch and the only one who
    actually hails from the Jurassic era!  He plays in a fairly similar way to
    T-Rex.  He lacks some of T-Rex's sheer naked power, but his larger arms and
    longer neck gives him more range and in some ways he is a superior fighter.  He
    has several good attacks that can be initiated from a distance, and they often
    come out to fast to be dodged or blocked.  Play him offensively, but remember
    to watch out for those smaller dinos and their superior speed.

    Well Albert is another of the big carnivores who again pretty much plays like
    Acro or Carchar.  Well it's no different to Tekken having Jin, Kazuya and
    Heihachi right?  His name comes from the place he was discovered, "Alberta".
    Like his fellow bipedal carnivore fighters he's another good mix of power,
    speed and defence, though not outstanding in any one category.
