6. Starting Out


The Save File setup is....interesting in this game. Pay 
attention to the following information:


Starting a New Game is easy. Simply head to Story Mode and choose 
New Game. Then, choose a Memory Card Slot, then an empty file 
(or, existing in some cases). 

To load a previous game, simply head to Load Game on the Main Menu, select
the appropriate Memory Card Slot, then choose your file. Then you
must decide on controller configuration as far as who gets to be which
character.

Contrary to popular belief, newcomers CAN join a previously-existing
game. To do this, simply head to the appropriate Memory Card Slot and
file, then, once the controller configuration appears on-screen, 
if you are not new to the game, press "A" on the character you last
played with. However, if you are new to the game, you CAN select
a character even though another human player may have been that character
in the last game but gave up or had to go or something. When that
person's character comes up, press the A Button on that character and you'll
join in on the game starting with the same amount of points that the previous
player had last. If you would like to be a character who was a computer
last game, you can do this also by pressing A on that character and,
again, you'll start with the same amount of points that the previous player 
(in this case, the computer) left off with the last time the game was saved. 

One final note: you cannot copy nor can you delete files (which is quite lame 
if I do say so myself). So, you'll have to do a lot of Overwriting. Be sure to 
start New Games wisely because you can only have a maximum of up to 3 files per 
Memory Card which, in total, takes up 20 Blocks.

I hope this information will help you get started on your path
to fame and fortune! ;)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

7. Story Mode


For each of the levels, I suggest that you refer to my Story Mode
Guide found on GameFAQS as well. There, detailed information
on the mode can be found. Thank you for your co-operation. (In
an alternate version, I may add information here as opposed to
referring readers to my other guide.)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

8. Tournament Mode

In this mode, after selecting your characters, you simply choose
1-5 Auditions you and three others will compete in. At the
end of the selected number of Auditions, the player with the
most Popularity Points at the end wins! Choose your favorite
Mini-Games and see who comes out on top as the best!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

9. Auditions


This section of the guide discuss every single audition in the
game. Use the tips provided to help you learn how to become a
Mini-Game Master at each of them.

AN UPCOMING VERSION. ***

Rock Bottom is definitely the best of the bunch! Any objections? :)

10. Hints and Tips


 (a) Story Mode

   
***** Bronze *****

This difficulty only requires that you obtain a total of
12 000 Popularity Points. For most of the games, this is
quite easy to do, but if you have trouble, be sure to
view my "Auditions Guide" once it gets accepted onto
the site. Or, for more information, view my "Story Mode
Guide" that has been posted on the site.

***** Silver *****

This difficulty only requires that you obtain a total of
12 500 Popularity Points. For most of the games, this may
not pose as TOO much of a challenge, but, it can, at times,
set you back on the difficulty for a while. If you have 
trouble, be sure to view my "Auditions Guide" once it gets accepted onto
the site. Or, for more information, view my "Story Mode
Guide" that has been posted on the site.

***** Gold *****

This difficulty only requires that you obtain a total of
13 500 Popularity Points. For most of the games, you'll be
on this difficult level for quite a while. Remember, practice
is key so be sure to prepare for the Auditons ahead. Also,
it helps to have a co-operative partner so I suggest putting 
the computers on Normal or even Smart but be careful for they
actually might give you a run for your money in 4-Player Games...
If you have trouble, be sure to view my "Auditions Guide" once 
it gets accepted onto the site. Or, for more information, 
view my "Story Mode Guide" on the site.


 (b) Bonuses


Information on the secret tasks and scores can be found in
my "Bonuses Guide" on the site. View it for more information.


 (c) Loading Screen

A list of all the hints that you may, at one point, or another, see 
on the Loading Screen will be added in an upcoming version. Until
then...
