1.0  Introduction
------------------------------
Hi I'm Koeben Jurykovsky, I really like HOTP (Heroes of the Pacific,
of course ;) ) I wanted to make a FAQ (feel special) and there is only
like one other FAQ for this game. Plus I found and know a lot of glitches
and easter eggs in this game. I currently Don't remember all of the 
glitches and easter eggs I know, but I'll add in later versions, when 
ever I can think of some glitches and easter eggs. Also feel
free to email me if you have any comments, suggestions or glitches/easter
eggs to add, just no spam! Oh and please let me know if you cannot recreate
any of these glitches, some I haven't tried out myself or they're really hard, 
my email is Koebenator@shaw.ca. Anyways I hope you like my FAQ


==============================
1.1 Version History
------------------------------
month/day/year

- (03-14-07) added glitch 2.18- 2.22, added easter egg 3.9,
also fixed some grammar (Still working on it) and Fixed the description for 
the Yo-yo BCM.... I hope >_<


==============================
1.2 Air Combat Maneuvers (ACMs)
------------------------------
I thought I might give out some tips and stuff before I get to glitching.
Aircombat maneuvers, you use for dogfighting and stuff

- Basic combat maneuvers:

Immelman and split S: I always get these two mixed up so I thought I'd
describe them together; one of them is where you do a half loop up, then
roll over to become upright, the other is opposite, you roll upside down
and do a half loop downwards

Yo-yos: there are like two types, one where you are zooming on your target and
you pull up to prevent an over shoot, and the other you go in a slight dive to 
zoom in on your target. The first one is simple, just pull up at the right 
rate and turn to the left or right then pull down back on your target
(though I don't know who behind you would fall for that trick) the other one 
you dive at then pull up.

loop: Just pull the stick back until you fly level upright again, you should
all ready know this ;)

- Air Combat Maneuvers 

Snap roll: Basically if you hold this maneuver you a crazy cork screw
dunno if so in real life :(. What you do is pull back on the stick diagnally
and turn the rudder in the direction you want to do the maneuver

Rolling Scissor: A crazy maneuvering sequence (And dogfight) where a plane
and it's opponent are doing barrel rolls until one of the two gets on the 
other's six. However this maneuver doesn't translate well in the game

Half Scissor: An insane tight maneuver that is hard to execute, I don't
even know How I do it, but I'll ask someone who does first chance I get


==============================
1.3 Using Rockets
------------------------------
Rockets can be used for two things: For ground taragets (However useless for 
online) and taking out other planes, the useful part :) There are also
three ways to use them against planes, on head-ons, turn fights and when you
flank a plane. Head-ons are easy, just use the gunsight and your sights to 
aim. However flanking and turnfighting with rockets are hard. Well, it's 
actually a breeze if you practice with it \||/(>_<)\||/.

For Flanking you ignore your gunsight that you use to target with the guns, 
rockets have a different velocity, it's actually hard for me to describe how
far you need to head off your gunsight, just estimate where you think it'll 
go, and if you're off, watch how far or how less you're shot was, then try
again, eventually you will be able to guess with 80-90% accuracy

If you figure out the velocity of the rocket while in a sharp turn, this will
be a cake walk, and it's deadly! Do the same when you flank, estimate the 
trajectory of the rocket and you will eventually should no problems when doing
this technique

===============================
2.0 The glitches
-------------------------------
Let me know if any of these are duds
(note: Most of these glitches can only be performed online and/or Multiplayer)

+=============================+
: 2.1 Air to Air Bombing      :
-------------------------------
Founder: Invis, JKERR
effectiveness: *****
Difficulty to set up: 4/10
Recreated: Yes
Parameters: Have a plane with a bomb that's it
Description: A bomb blows up a plane in one hit

instructions: There are many ways to do it: My way and JKERR's way, (Well all
the other ways were by JKERR too, except the stalling one ):

1. My way: in a head-on or behind the plane, scrape the bottom of your plane
along the top of the other plane and at the split second drop a bomb and boom!
(Warning! Causes invisibility (Glitch 2.9) )

2. JKERR's way: In a head-on have an altitude advantage over your opponent, 
then release the bomb just before you come in contact with the enemy plane.

3. JKERR's way V2: Same as #2 except fly upside down and have a lower altitude
than the other plane

4. Spin: If you're being chased, fly up and spin while dropping the bombs

5. Stall: Fly up (Must have plane that can stall) unleash your bombs and 
hopefully some unsuspecting plane will try to take advantage and Kaboom! 
Will blow up the unsuspector, you could also stall while dropping bombs and
anybody gullable enough will follow

6. Negetive Gs: Go in a negetive G dive or loop while having warspeed on,
and the bombs should stick to the wings, this can be effective when someone is
chasing you


+============================+
: 2.2 Pulling out of a stall :
------------------------------
Founder: ACE"KOEBEN", unknown
effectiveness: ***
Difficulty to set up: 2/10
Recreated: yes
Parameters: Have any plane with a bomb and it can stall
Description: Going into the bombing view will allow you to pull out of a stall

instructions: From what I've tested, you can do this anywhere. Just grab any
plane you want, as long as it has a bomb and it can stall. First go up at 
a higher altitude, stall, then go into the bombing view by pressing the select
button. If it worked correctly you should be flying level and not stalling, 
this does not work all the time, like you will sometimes will continue dropping
out of the sky. 

You can also go into bombing mode if you're in a dive that you think you can't 
pull out of


+============================+
: 2.3 Pulling out of a stall2:
------------------------------
Founder: ACE"KOEBEN", unknown
effectiveness: **
Difficulty to set up: 6/10
Recreated: unknown
Parameters: Have any plane that has rockets and can stall
Description: The secondary target cam can also help out of a stall

instructions: First grab a plane that can stall, and has rockets. Get in the
stall, but make sure you stall vetically; any other angle won't work. While
you're stalling fire a rocket and hold the fire secondary button to watch the
rocket, by the time it dies you should be safe out of the stall. Though it 
doesn't work all the time :(


+============================+
: 2.4 Invincible bomber      :
------------------------------
Founder: ACE"KOEBEN"
effectiveness: *****
Difficulty to set up: 8/10
Recreated: unknown
Parameters: So far I only know you need it to 2 player split screen online,
both players on the same team and one is in a B25H Mitchel
Description: The bomber can't be shot down by anything

instructions: Have it 2 player split screen, one person is in a B25H Mitchel.
The person in the Mitchel must stay in the bombing view mode. The other player
starts to collide into the Mitchel until he can no longer do it; like your 
plane will get stuck along the bomber and it should be shaking as it's doing 
it. This is how you know it worked, now for a test start gunning the Mitchel
and he shouldn't take any damage, then fire rockets at him he should still not
take any damage, then drop a bomb, he should still be alive, and totally 
ivincible :D. The only way get out of it is to get out of bombing mode, you
will then no longer be invincible. 
Please don't do this gitch in games with other people tha aren't in on the
glitch, it's unfair and cheating


+============================+
: 2.5 Under water flying     :
------------------------------
Founder: ACE"KOEBEN"
effectiveness: * (Kinda pointless but it's pretty cool to see)
Difficulty to set up: 9/10
Recreated: Yes
Parameters: Fly in a bomber, and have the level at the coral sea (the best 
level for the glitch
Description: It will appear to other planes that you are flying under water

instructions: First get a bomber (Preferably the B-25H Mitchel) and have the
level in the coral sea (it's the best one for it). Now fly low along the water
and pull up to stall (You want to be around 300ft when you stall). Wait a split
second then quickly go into bombing mode, it's difficult to achieve because 
you may stall too fast when in the bombing mode and crash, you can't if you're
under water but other people can see you under the water. When you are under
all you see is water, the stall sign and your bomb scope up close. If you get
out of bombing mode you'll crash, to get out of the water increase speed and
you're plane will rise out of the water


+============================+
: 2.6 Bounce off the bridge  :
------------------------------
Founder: unknown
effectiveness: * (A regret, but still a glitch)
Difficulty to set up: 1/10
Recreated: Yes I believe so
Parameters: Have the level set up at Kaven Island
Description: Your plane will bounce off the bridge completely draining health

instructions: Take any plane it doesn't matter, go on the Kaven island level
and to where the large wooden bridge is. Now just dive on the bridge, if you
have full health you will bounce off the bridge destroying a segment of it 
and your health will be completely drained


+===========================+
: 2.7 A.I. Space flight     :
-----------------------------
Founder: Hellcat, JKERR and ACE"KOEBEN"
effectiveness: * (Still pointless but fun)
Difficulty to set up: unknown
Recreated: yes
Parameters: Not much is known, but have the human players USN and the A.I.
IJN in a Scratch-one-Flat Top game. Make sure there is like only one or two
fighters in the game and the rest of the planes available should any of the
following: B6N jill, B5N kate, TBM3 Avenger, D4Y Judy, and the Emily and 
Catalina
Description: A glitch (Still not known exactely how to do) where the A.I.
start climbing up in the air, and will actually pass the combat zone, they'll
actually reach around 40,000ft and still continue climbing, until they 
disappear

instructions: I still don't know exactely how to do this but set up a SOFT
(Scratch-one-Flat Top) with 3-4 people in it. Make they're all on one team:
USN and the rest will be A.I.s on the other team: IJN, make sure the room is 
closed (all the slots are full so no one can enter the game). Have two fighters
at the most and make sure the rest of the planes are divebombers, torpedo 
bombers or flying boats (Catalina and Emily). Start the game, now every body 
(USN) start killing each other and eventually it's like the A.I. will just 
give up and fly away.


+============================+
: 2.8 A.I. Acting Weird      :
------------------------------
There are many weird things the A.I. do.
These three are the craziest:

+============================+
[a) Terrible Tempest         ;
------------------------------
Founder: ACE"KOEBEN"
effectiveness: ***** (Watch out for this puppy)
Difficulty to set up: 1/10
Recreated: yes

unless you have a death wish


+============================+
[b) Passive Mustang          ;
------------------------------
Founder: RMcSlash
effectiveness: **** (good for target practice)
Difficulty to set up: 1/10
Recreated: unknown
Parameters: Set up a game with A.I. give them all P-51D Mustangs
Description: The A.I. Won't shoot at all

instructions: Set up a game, with A.I. have them all in P-51D Mustangs, they

Description: A.I.s fly low in CTF and sometimes they actually crash

instructions: Start a Capture the Flag with A.I.s in level with terrain, 
Iwo Jima works, when you watch an A.I. in CTF, it actually flies low and some
times crashes XD


+============================+
: 2.9 Invisible plane        :
------------------------------
Founder: unknown
effectiveness: * (it's cheap)
Difficulty to set up: unknown
Recreated: Happens almost every day
Parameters: none
Description: When somebody gets bombed, shot down, you collided with him or
you hit the plane with a rocket, sometimes the person turns invsisibe to radar

instructions: When you bomb somebody or the other things in the Parameter, they
sometimes turn invisible, to your radar and you cannot target him, and guns 
won't kill the person, the only way to fix the problem is for the person 
invisible to crash. This is an extremely unfair glitch, but fortunatley most
people will be a good sport and crash.


+============================+
: 2.10 Obstructions Return!  :
------------------------------
Founder: unknown
effectiveness: (Just aesthetics)
Difficulty to set up: 1/10
Recreated: yes
Parameters: Don't host the game, the best level to have it at is Pearl Harbor
Description: Buildings and stuff the you have blown up will actually return

instructions: First don't host the game, have it at Pearl Harbor, it's got the
most things to blow up. First blow up stuff, then leave the game and return.
Back in the game every obstruction will be back in one piece, more things to 
blow up! ^_^


+============================+
: 2.11 Argh!                 :

effectiveness: ** (annoying)
Difficulty to set up: 1/10
Recreated: yes
Parameters: Have the level set up at Kaven Island
Description: If you fly close over the Pirate ship, you will blow up

instructions: Why did I name this Glitch Argh? Well Pirates say argh and it's
an annoying glitch. First set up a game on Kaven Island, then fly over to 
where the pirate ship is, fly low above it you will blow up! The code that
makes you crash was a little big over the ship


+============================+
: 2.12 Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!   :
------------------------------
Founder: ACE"KOEBEN"
effectiveness: *** (very funny)
Difficulty to set up: 3/10
Recreated: yes
Parameters: Have two people in bombers
Description: While in bombing mode, and watching your plane in a different
view; as you collide with the other bomber which should also be in bombing mode
your plane will spin like crazy

instructions: Have you and another person start any game both in bombers 
(Betty, Marauder and the Mitchel) and fly at the same altitude, both go into
bombing mode. Now you wanna see this so watch your target (The other plane)
and when you two collide, you will spin like crazy!

down at the right spot at the right time, you will be able to see the inside 
of the Carrier


+============================+
: 2.14 Carrier Repair        :
------------------------------
Founder: unknown
effectiveness: * Extremely annoying
Difficulty to set up: Requires a laggy game
Recreated: Yes
Parameters: Laggy game in a SOFT
Description: Bombs will do a chunk of damage to the carrier but suddenly it
will repair itself a bit more than before the bomb impact

instructions: First of all the game needs to be laggy, get in a dive bomber
or fighter bomber and make runs on the carrier, if you make a large enough
impact with the bombs, you will take out a huge chunk but then the health will
increase before the bomb hit the carrier. Extremely annoying. How not to avoid
it ;)


+============================+
: 2.15 Torpedo Bombs?!       :
------------------------------
Founder: It's been seen for a long time, but it's nature was founded by 
ACE"KOEBEN"
effectiveness: * Does nothing
Difficulty to set up: 1/10
Recreated: yes
Parameters: SOFT, You can only see other people do this

Description: your plane will bouce off the ground and spin like crazy at the
end of a game

instructions: set up a game with a time limit, near the end of the game line
yourself near a mountain and if lined up right, you will run into the mountain
and spin like crazy XD


+============================+
: 2.18 Hovering fire ball    :
------------------------------
Founder: unknown
effectiveness: *** (Disorientates pilots sometimes)
Difficulty to set up: unknown
Recreated: yes
Parameters: Have a game with other people
Description: When someone leaves a game, and while they're smoking, a hovering
ball of fire and smoke is left behind

insrtuctions: There's nothing the viewer can do, but what causes it is when
someone in a smoking plane leaves a game before he can get shot down. When he
leaves, a hovering fire ball is left behind. Sometimes Pieces of the plane the
person was in gets left behind with the fire ball, I once saw an entire 
fuselage of an SBD-4 Dauntless and the cowling and wing of a P51


+============================+

Recreated: yes?
Parameters: Have a Fox and hounds set up
Description: when you crash as the fox, sometimes the indigo flares are left
behind in ball shapes in the water where you crashed

instructions: First, become the fox, then crash while in a verticle dive. I
don't think this happens all the time but you will see the indigo flares that
attaches to your plane when the fox on the water in balls


+=============================+
: 2.21 Bonus Balloons don't work?
-------------------------------
Founder: ACE"KOEBEN"
effectiveness: * bad
Difficulty to set up: unknown
Recreated: no
Parameters: Fox and Hounds
Description: Bonus balloons don't give you points as the fox?

instructions: This was weird. I haven't tested it yet but in this one game I
was the fox, the other dude was in a Betty and couldn't keep up with me. So I
started shooting bonus balloons, and looked at the score board. I noticed that
I didn't get any points at all. I don't what caused this or if it's a glitch
all this time


+=============================+
: 2.22 Double Respawn         :
-------------------------------
Founder: Many
effectiveness: ** (if you're the person behind)
Difficulty to set up: ???
Recreated: yes
Parameters: Two people must die at the exact same time and respawn at the 
exact same time
Description: Two people will respawn at the same place, the person behind can
inflict good damage and the other will get sent flying out of proportion

to have lots of flying time because over time this glitch does happen randomly.
