=======================================================================

1/ HOW TO GET THE PARALLEL 5 ?

Well that one is quite hidden and is more like a "bonus" parallel.
Proceed exactly as for the 2nd Parallel - that means getting in the
captain's cabin  between 3:30 and 4:30 - but this time lose  ( yes!
you did read what I just said! enjoy the suicidal tendancies!) and
die against Bilan. Wait a little and you'll arrive on an arena from
hell where you'll have to kill 10 guys you faced during the game,
in a row, with only two bars of life! A kind of survival mode...
It is not as hard as it looks, but I'm sure you have to finish the four
previous parallel to access this one.
By the way, it doesn't bring a sh** to the scenario nor give you a new
ending, but at least your save file will get a shiny 5th star. Awesome.

=======================================================================

2a/ HOW TO PLAY "LOVE LOVE MINI RACER" ?

Aaaaaahhh! A fantastic game for sure! Far better than Gran Turismo!
Well, you've certainly seen this weird minitrack on the boat at the
start. Remember, in the luxury lounge! They say it's unplugged.
Start a new game and try to accomplish a parallel 3 (hard) or 1 (mucho
easy) start. That means that once you've entered the captain's cabin,
Bilan won't be there. Once you've killed the clone (par1) or heard
Bilan's escape (par3), instead of heading to the exit, try to go back
to that 1st place lounge !!! be careful because one wrong move and you
might end up the prologue!!!
In the lounge you'll notice that the game table is lightened up! Go
next to it and they'll ask you if you wanna play.Select "yes" and enjoy
the ultimate gaming experience: Mini love love racer.
The rules are explained before the game starts as are the commands.
(and the main programmer of the game is...Garian! is it a joke?)

=======================================================================

2b/ HOW TO WIN "LOVE LOVE MINI RACER" ?

Geez ! I can't believe I actually gave up Dead Or Alive 2 to plug back
my saturn, and moreover just to please YOU.
Ok, the game basics are to drive a blue diamond and getting all the
yellow balls in a limited amount of time. If you touch the pins or the
bumpers you die. There are 25 stages in total.

stage01:it's a square with 4 balls. Move on and turn 45░ left. As soon
        as you touch the first ball make a long turn to get the three
        others.

stage02:in "O" shape. Go mid-speed as you curve on your left, grazing
        the pins. You should immediatly get all the balls but one,
        right behind you. Reverse quickly and you should make it.

stage03:in a "+" shape. reverse and just before you reach the ball
        brake to go up as quickly as possible. Reach the opposite one,
        carefully breaking and heading in reverse to the middle. Do a
        90░ reverse left turn now to get the left one. Finally you can
        proceed at full speed to the last ball, in front of you.

stage04:in a "7" shape. Turn immediatly 90░ on the left. Go to the 1st
        ball and approach it VERY slowly. You'll have enough time for
        the rest. Then turn and you can go full speed. Just be careful
        because the last balls are not exactly forming a line.

stage05:ok, you're facing a "V" corner between two section with a ball.
        go to the one on the right because they're actually two balls.
        Return to the middle and get the one facing you. Go back in the
        middle in reverse and do a 90░ reverse turn in one of the sides
        to get it's ball. Finally rush to the last one, facing you.

stage06:getting a bit harder. First go on the up-right track to get the
        1st ball. Come back to the other corridor and rush. You'll ar-
        rive in an arena with a pin in the middle. Slowdown a bit and
        turn clockwise to get the 2nd one.

stage07:turn immediatly 35░ on the left to escape the pins. Take the
        1st one but do not get full speed. Don't turn on the first left
        passage but go on 'till you reach a 2nd ball !!!be careful to
        stop completely when you reach it!!! Still stopped, turn 90░ on
        the left, and take the ball facing you at mid-speed. Once again
        don't turn on left but go in the little corridor you see next.
        Be careful, there's a chicane, so once again stay at mid-speed.
        Take the ball during the U-turn and go to the last one fast.

stage08:go full speed, take the 1st ball, don't go in the big arena but
        just go on in the next corridor and finally turn 45░ for the
        2nd one.

stage09:a "t" shape. Dodge the bumper, go directly to the ball towards
        you, then turn 90░ in reverse for the second one.

stage10:a real track.Follow the arrow and go up. Take the first ball
        and brake a bit. Then take the 2nd one as you go faster; keep
        on to the 3rd ball. Be careful to slalom a bit but don't brake.
        Take the 4 in a row (the last one might send on pins). Break a
        bit before the U-turn then stay at mid-speed to get two more.
        For the last two, break as you targeting right one then 90░ in
        reverse.

stage11:a kind of "+" with bumpers. Reverse first to get the one behind
        you. Then directly go to the opposite direction. Go back to the
        middle in reverse. You shall have plenty of time to dodge the
        two bumpers and get the last two.

stage12:harder. Move a bit on the right to start the ball line. You'll
        end up at 17/33 balls. Graze the pins to get 3 more, then graze
        again to see a new line. Take it reverse. Go on after it had
        finished to discover a last line of balls. Pffeww...

stage13:the "hand" ( like in "F-Zero X" by the way ).Take the 3 first
        from right to left then turn to get on the 1st line from the
        right. Reverse to come back to where the 3 first were (you then
        will have a chance to catch up one you've missed) and proceed
        to the second line.Then reverse 90░ on the left to take the 1st
        balls of the last line then forward to finish.

stage14:the bumpers are acting like a wave so once you passed the first
        one you shall escape the others easily. Take the ball and go
        reverse, dodging again, then turn 90░ to the left, then forward
        to the opposite ball.

stage15:the last ten ! Well go up and slow down when you reach the ball
        belt to take all of them, then proceed turning. Pretty easy.

stage16:the first 4 balls are all forward/reverse stuff. Then you shall
        take a tight U-turn with at least 20 seconds left. Be careful
        to do a complete 180░ during the turn in order to reach the
        ball at mid-speed grazing the pins; you'll then be able to turn
        without breaking. A 2nd U-turn awaits you. Be careful and once
        again combo the 180░ and the mid-speed grazing to get the 2nd
        corner ball, turn without braking and reach the last one.

stage17:all in mid-speed. Turn 90░ on the right then slow down and turn
        90░ on right again. Take the 1st ball then go to the up-right
        ball and reach it VERY slowly, so that you can U-turn to the 2
        others without needing a reverse. Take the two next at the same
        time, then turn immediatly 30░ on the left to start the line of
        balls. Go straight to the 2nd line, then go all the way to the
        dead-end and take all the ball using forward/reverse technique
        (that I should call "F/T tech" now). Go back all the way to the
        corridor you didn't touch yet, get the 3 balls , then the two
        on their left. Proceed to the next corridor, get the bow-shaped
        ball line, and you shall have 15 seconds to clear the rest:
        much more than needed.

stage18:snowy ! Take the one in front of you then turn clockwise to get
        the 3 others. Now proceed to the last three.

stage19:very cool track ! Just dash for the 8 first, then slow down a
        bit as you reach the 9th ball 'cause you'll get a slalom before
        the last ones.

stage20:the bumper is chasing you ! Escape him with F/T tech as you
        curve to take the ball.

stage21:really tough! Proceed on the left to take the first ones. Go on
        and you shall reach the meeting point of three lines. Take the
        one in front of you then reverse to the meeting point and turn
        to the left one. Finally go straight to the last line. You've
        got to be really fast...

stage22:well, what can I tell you? Just follow the line (starting from
        the right seems easier to me). Sorry for such a short help but
        here only your driving skills matters.

stage23:all the groups of bumpers are heading to corners of a square.
        You'll find one ball in each corner. Just take your time ! You
        have got plenty of it to understand the speed of each group and
        with a good F/T tech it should be simple...

stage24:just use F/T tech and dodge the bumper. VERY VERY easy.

stage25:TADAaaaAAA ! FINAL STAGE ! A hundred balls to get ! 100 ! Take
        care of the first 10, then it's all F/R tech...


        ???????WHAT DID I WIN WITH THAT GREAT VICTORY???????
Apparently... nothing. Just a cool notice from Jack when you leave the
game... plus that stupid melody stuck in your head for the rest of the
day !



=======================================================================

3/ HOW TO GET A SECRET SWORD ?

In the underground city, there is a secret ladder hidden behind a house
on top right. Go up and you shall find a guy selling you a special
sword for 25 chocolate bars (or 25 cigs in the cooler jap' version).
You d'better keep them preciously before you meet him. Don't worry if
you can't purchase it, because personally I do not find it so great.

=======================================================================

4/ HOW TO GET A BABY FROM KAY ?

Ask your biology teacher :)

=======================================================================

5/ HOW TO GET 4,000,000 POINTS ?

This tip comes from Andrew Todd [Homer14949@aol.com]:

For more points than you'll ever need go to Death Valley where the
green spiked balls are flying over the platform. Be sure to have
between 70 and 90 points but not at 80 or the tactic will not work.
Save your game, then hit yourself on the green balls until you have 5
HP. Do not fall in the water!
Next stand by the edge and let one of the green balls knock you into
the water. When Jack helps you out you will have 0HP but you will still
be alive. Ask Jack twice to refill your life and you will have between
10 and 30 HP. Go back to the green balls again and it will drop your
life down to 75 from 80. Then refill your life again (do not use the
meat). If you had 10-19 then when you go back to the menu there will
be all of your new BH points! If you had 21-30 then just get hit again
and refill then all the points will work! Go ahead and fill up to have
a maximum of 200HP instead of 80HP!

Note: This trick usually works the first time, but if it didn't, go to
another fight, earn more points and repeat the steps.

=======================================================================

6/ HOW TO CHANGE THE MINE CART VIEW ?

This tip comes from [KiNGRob97@aol.com]

Mine Cart Views
During the mine cart race you are able to switch views.
Press Right Shift for a first-person view of this roller-coaster.
Press Left Shift to return to normal.

=======================================================================

7/ WTF WITH THE PIANO ?

This tip comes from Sneaky Tanuki [mimyers2@vt.edu]

Piano Mode
Go to the Sound Test and press X, Y, Z. A piano at the bottom of the
screen will plays each tune and you can watch it as you listen to the
songs.

=======================================================================

8/ WE'LL SOON DISCOVER THIS GAME CAN ALSO MAKE COFFEE ^_^;

This tip comes from [blaqmyst@flash.net]

Two-Player Mode
After you beat parallel 5, you can make it two-player mode by entering
parallel 5 again.

Misc
----

*you did know that this game is the unofficial sequel of Landstalker,
 didn't you?

*The original us/euro translation of the hero's name Ryu-Ya was Nick.

*Weirdly, I think Garian isn't part of Climax Landers (on the DC)
 whereas Ryle/Nigel of Shining force 1 and Landstalker, Pyra from
 Shining in the darkness and Lady from Ladystalker appear.
 Please mail me if I'm wrong.

*Musashi happens to be a very famous guy in Japan. It was a legendary
 (but he has apparently really existed) Samurai who invented the two
 sabers "nit˘ri˘" technique. The Musashi from Square comes from there
 too.
