    About this FAQ
    =======================================================================
    
    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.

          Celebrity Look Alikes
    
    Last Updated: Sunday, November 25, 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
