    Introduction
    
    Hi everyone right this is going to be my second ever FAQ. Firstly would like 
    to compliment this game as I personally believe it is a solid successful game
    that has been put together very well. Anyway enough talking let us get on with
    the game.
    
    Starting Off
    
    Right starting off at the main menu there are 8 options to choose from 
    consisting of: Quick Match - Jump into a quick match against com
                   Tournament - Try to win singles and doubles tournaments!
                   Exhibition - Play an exhibition match against com
                   World Tour - Train and compete to become world #1!
                   Ball Games - Try to beat the high scores
                   Options - Configure your game settings
                   Records - View your high scores
                   Multiplayer - Create or join a game with friends
    
    The main portion of the game is in the World Tour mode however you can visit 
    the options menu first to change various settings and to change the games 
    difficulty. 
    
    Note: The game defaults at the "easy" difficulty setting so if you are just 
          starting out there is no need to go into the options menu.
    
    World Tour Mode
    
    Ok if your starting a new game on World Tour you will first arrive at your 
    character setup screen. Rename your player to whatever you want and complete
    the rest of the options to continue. You have to create two players one male 
    and one female to participate in the different events later on.
    
    Note: You can buy new gear later on in the game so don't worry if there is 
          nothing you like.
    
    After this you can select where you want your home and strangely enough even
    the middle of the sea is possible.
    
    Ok now i'm going to guide you through the "constant icons" that will appear on
    your map. The "constant icons" as you can guess are always present unlike some
    "temporary icons" like tournaments that dissapear once they are over.
    
    Constant Icons
    
    Home: You will find your home where ever you decided to place it. Inside you 
    can check your players skills under the "Status" option. Press R1 to alternate 
    beteween your players. The "Gear" option lets you change between your present
    and bought apparel and racquets. The "Rest" option will recover your players
    stamina always a good idea before entering a tournament. Finally the "Exit"
    option will retur you to the world map.
    
    Shops: You will encounter quite a few shops as you progress through the game
    here you can buy new apparel, raquets and also sign a contract with a partner
    of the same sex which is necessary for doubles matches.
    
    Training Games
    
    Stroke Training
    
    ===[GMEDSC]====================================================================
    
    Disc Shooter: Ok there is a 4x4 panel of circles in front of your some white
    some black and a ball dispenser. Right the objective is to turn all the discs
    white. Additionally any black discs in between two white ones will be converted
    however vice versa also applies so be careful. The circle shot is a nice 
    controlled shot which is useful for this task. You will get 100 points for each
    disc turned white plus any combos will add 100 to the previous score. E.g. if
    you flip the first disc you get 100 points, then the combo starts you get 100
    points for the first disc in the combo, then 200 for the second, then 300 for 
    the third and so on.
    
    ===[GMETNK]====================================================================
    
    Tank Attack: Ok the second stroke training is easier than the first, but it 
    still isn't a free ride. You have 30 seconds to kill both the tanks by sending
    the balls back at them. When starting hold X and the analogue stick forward to
    pretty much guarantee death to the green tank. Then it's a case of lining your
    shots up with the red tank's path which is always a set route of left to right
    or vice versa. Kill both tanks to recieve full exp.
    
    Volley Training
    
    ===[GMEBLL]====================================================================
    
    Bulls Eye: Ok theres a target in the middle and you have to score 4000 points
    in 30 seconds to pass this challenge. Once again the circle shot works well for 
    this challenge and so does square.
    
    Scoring: Bulls Eye/Center/X10 - 500 points
             2nd Inner Ring/X5 - 250 points
             1st Inner Ring/X3 - 150 points
             Outer Ring/X1 - 50 points
    
    ===[GMEALN]====================================================================
    
    Alien Force: Quite similar to Tank Attack you have to destroy the machines that
    are firing tennis balls at you. Destroy them all to pass the challenge. If time
    is running out avoid holding down the shot button as it prolongs the animation
    wasting time.
    
    Footwork Training
    
    ===[GMESTP]====================================================================
    
    Stomper: Ok you have got 25 seconds to crush the required amount of cans noted
    in the top left. To do this however you have to keep the ball in play while 
    crushing the cans. Plan your next route in advance and aim your shot over there
    to keep the ball under control. The square shot works very well on this as it 
    is a high, slow shot allowing you time to crush nearby cans. Crushing all the 
    cans nets you a significant experience boost and ends your mini game early.
    
    ===[GMEDGR]====================================================================
    
    Danger Flags: Quite basic this game you have three lives to get all of the 
    flags without being hit by a ball. Quick changes of direction will keep the
    dispensers guessing. After losing a life the already captured flags will not
    respawn so your work is not wasted.
    
    Serve Training
    
    ===[GMEPIN]====================================================================
    
    Pin Crasher: This is one of the more fun mini games along with the other serve
    training game. For this you have a set amount of frames to knock down the 
    neccessary amount of pins noted in the top right. Each pin knocked down is one
    point. Pressing square or circle instead of X to serve adds spin to the ball.
    This works in tournaments as well.
    
    ===[GMEPRZ]====================================================================
    
    Prize Sniper: There is a conveyor belt rotating various items around in front 
    of you and you have a set amount of balls to achieve a set score. The value of
    the item hit determins the score you will recieve. For instance an antique 
    plate is worth more than a flag.
    
    Note: Sometimes if you hit the correct items in the correct order chaos will
    ensue on the belt and your score will go through the roof. It is uncertain
    what causes this at the moment any help in identifying how to do this trick 
    would be much appreciated and you will recieve full credit. Please email:
    ProcessedGamer@googlemail.com
    
    That is now all of the training mini games covered. 
    
    Shops Listing
    
    ===[SHOPSS]====================================================================
    
    In this section I will list all of the shops avaliable in the game and all of 
    the items they sell. Please note that not all shops will be unlocked at the
    beginning of the game. I have not included the partner item as it is the same
    throughout the game.

    After all of that Tournament mode is finally complete. I will now give a few 
    tips and hints for the ball games and then that will be the missions so to 
    speak of this game over.
    
    Ball Games
    
    ===[BLKBST]====================================================================
    
    Blockbuster: The default high score for this game is 100,000 with 340 blocks
    "busted". All you have to do is serve towards the blocks. Hitting a block 
    destroys it lowering the other blocks into reach. Try a weak serve to hit the
    lower blocks.
    
    ===[FRTDSH]====================================================================
    
    Fruit Dash: The high score is 100,000 with 250 pieces of fruit collected. If
    you have played World Tour this game is a lot like Danger Flags only you don't
    have lives just an energy bar that depeletes if your hit. So bascially collect
    all the fruit while avoiding balls and junk food. Your energy bar is depleting
    all the time collect fruit to top it up. Eating junk food will deplete the bar
    and being hit by a ball will deplete the bar and reset you back to the original
    starting position.
    
    ===[BLOKER]====================================================================
    
    Blocker: High score is 50,000. This game sees you at the opposite angle you 
    usually are defending your blocks. Your blocks will start off green, then when
    hit will go to yellow, then red and then finally dissapear. The dispenser will
    flash when it's about to release a ball and hitting it with a ball will get you
    bonus points. Your points are constantly increasing depending on the amount of
    blocks you have and the quality they are in.
    
    ===[BALOON]====================================================================
     
    Balloon Smash: The starting high score is 100,000 with 110 balloons smashed.
    You start this game with 45 seconds on the clock. Balloons will fall as the 
    game goes on. Smash all of one colour to get a needed time bonus.
    
    Well thats the game complete then. You still have the exhibition mode to enjoy
    but that's just simple tennis as is quick game and tournament so you don't need
    help with that. I hope you have enjoyed the game and I hope this guide has 
    proved useful.
