    1. INTRO
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hey, PsyTom2000 is back with his update to his first submitted guide!
    Seems I lied when I said V2.0 wouldn't come until everything was done.
    As before, you can reach me at psytom2000@hotmail.com. Now when you 
    email me, don't complain about my spelling or I will just delete the 
    email. Of course, you can point out other mistakes that I have made 
    and I will fix them and mention you, even if I spotted them before I
    got your email. That's how nice I am. Well, I'll quit my babbling on 
    for now, see ya.
    
    P.S. Glad to see some people are still playing their SNES!

    2. VERSION HISTORY
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    V2.0
    
    Finished: Sunday, February 24, 2002
    Submitted: Sunday, February 24, 2002
    
    Here's the table of stuff I said I'd do from V1.0, and if it's done:
    +----------------------------------------+---------------------------+
    |Adding: The rest of the maps            |DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH     |
    |        Character Line Preference Top 10|YES BUT IT'S DEAD ALREADY  |

    |        More Game Genie codes.          |YEAH, PRETTY MUCH DONE     |

    |Rid of: Controls                        |COULDN'T BE STUFFED        |
    |        Hey can I just say some stuff...|SURVIVING ON REMNANTS ALONE|
    |        What's happening on V2.0        |SUCCESFULLY REPLACED       |
    +----------------------------------------+---------------------------+
    The Battle Mode Tactics section is up, as is the FAQs section but it
    is under the name of 'Q&A'. Apart from that what I've done is: 
    
    -I have added a new section, called 'Work By PsyTom2000'.
    -I have added a new section, called 'The Title Screen'.
    -I have added a new section, called 'Computer's Dirty Tricks'.
    -I have added a new section, called 'Items'.
    -I have changed the reviews in 'The Characters And How They Rate'.
    -I have changed the walkthroughs for the tracks.
    -I have changed the track ratings from 'out of 10' to 'percentage'.
    -I have pointed out some mistakes that I saw.
    -I have pointed out some mistakes that you saw.
    -I have pointed out some shortcuts that I saw.
    -I have pointed out some shortcuts that you saw.
    -I have added some more Game Genie codes, from me.
    -I have added some Tips and Tricks, from me.
    -I have added some Tips and Tricks, from you.
    -I have added some Fast Times that you guys have sent in.
    -I have added Battle Mode Tactics from me.
    
    I'm writing too much, right?
    
    But it's all important, so I need to say everything.
    
    And if you don't like it how I write too much, well, after everything
    in 'What's Happening in V3.0?' is done (and keep in mind that not 
    everything will be done by V3.0), the only updates should be Fast 
    Times and Game Genie codes.
    
    Okay, now I'm writing too much.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    V1.0
    
    Finished -- Friday, January 4, 2002
    Submitted - Friday, January 4, 2002
    
    The First one.
    
    (If you are easily bored, stop reading this section now)
    
    There will be many updates, but the only planned additions are 'FAQs'
    and 'Battle Mode Tactics'. The 'Hey can I just say some stuff...' will
    eventually disappear, and will be replaced with... well I'm not sure
    if it will be replaced. The question for FAQs will go to the FAQs 
    section, the Battle Mode question will go to 'Battle Mode Tactics'.
    The question for Tips and Tricks will go to the 'Tips and Tricks'
    section. The one asking for Game Genie codes will go to the 'Game 
    Genie Codes' section. The one asking for some fast times? It will end
    up going to the 'Fast Times' section. The one requesting character 
    preference line-ups will not end up in the 'Characters And How They 
    Rate' section; instead, it will have its own section, working title:
    'Character Line-ups'. I have a feeling it won't last long though...
    When I get those emails, the MKSC references will go into their cups 
    and the name of the game that I did my actual first guide on will end
    up... somewhere. The little part stating that I'm Australian will be
    added to the intro as a 'Post-Script' (or, 'PS'). The one about 
    getting the night-time screen on MKSC will disappear as soon as I get
    an email saying that someone has done it, while the one about the 
    'group' that hates it how Koopa wasn't in the other games will be at
    the very end of the guide. And the one about writing too much, that 
    will probably end up right here. In fact, I think I've said so much
    here now that I'll introduce it to this little section right now...
    
    Am I writing too much?

    5. THE CHARACTERS AND HOW THEY RATE
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    +------------------+
    | The Heavyweights |
    +------------------+
    Donkey Kong Jr: Okay, I don't like this monkey. But, I'm not going to
                    rave on about it. All I can say is, if YOU don't like
                    this monkey, use a Game Genie code. Or, learn how to 
                    do a boost start.
    
    Bowser: KKK. The Kool Koopa King. This kool king is definitely a
            roadworthy driver and definitely does better on the road than
            against Mario.
    
    +-------------------+
    | The Middleweights |
    +-------------------+
    Mario: The star of the game. Not the best, no, that honour is bestowed
           on Koopa Troopa. But he's still right up there with the best of
           'em. He is the only all-round player and that is the most 
           important thing, but come on, you want the best, you don't come
           to this guy.
    
    Luigi: The only differences between the brothers are, Luigi jumps 
           higher, Luigi is thinner and Luigi turns sharper in this game.
           What that means is, the overlooked brother is the better 
           brother. Still, I prefer Mario, mainly because my brother uses
           Luigi. Or, he would if he still played this game.
    
    +------------------+
    | The Lightweights |
    +------------------+
    Yoshi: The baby re-incarnation of T-Rex. He looks cute and all, but 
           he's one mean dinosaur. And one mean driver... Wazzat? Yoshi is
           a pet lizard? NO! I've said it time and time again, to my 
           brother and my father, when we are playing Mario Kart 64, I say
           'It's a DINOSAUR!' It all started when my dad commented on the
           'frog' in front of him...
    
    Toad: Either I can yap on about how I hate the Fungus or just cut it.
          For the sake of all of you, the readers, I'll just cut it 'cause
          if I slag him I'll probably get LOTS of hate mail. Oh well. For
          some reason, there is one character that gets lapped TWICE. I 
          use Koopa Troopa, and Toad is usually that one that gets lapped
          TWICE. Not to say he sucks, but I've used all of 'em and this 
          lump of fungi doesn't handle well with the best of 'em.
    
    Princess: Sucks. That's my view. Now don't complain, I'm Australian,
              and I'm not good with some American stuff, but I do believe
              that this is a First Amendment right: freedom of speech. Now
              as said before, I'm not good on American stuff so if it's 
              wrong, just email me and tell me. Don't call me every name
              under the sun because I screwed up. And anyway, the name's
              "PsyTom2000".
    
    Koopa Troopa: The fact that Koopa Troopa is, unarguably, the BEST 
                  racer in the WHOLE game, just gets me infuriated at 
                  Nintendo for giving the BEST racer the series has EVER
                  had, the boot. They oughta be ashamed of themselves. Oh
                  well, I think Koopa is headed for the Gamecube in an all
                  new Mario Kart game.
    
    Oh, and by the way, don't get angry at my ratings. I know people will
    say, 'Oh, you said [insert racer here] was crap but he's good' or 
    maybe 'Hey you reckon [insert racer here] is good? He sucks!' In fact,
    I've already gotten 1 email on it. A guy named Mike Groels sent me an
    email criticising my ratings for DKjr and Koopa Troopa. He said, 
    'Everyone races with DKjr, and you think he's the worst' and 'Koopa is
    slow, you need to slow down to corner, and hop and slide'. I changed 
    my rating for DKjr, still doesn't affect the fact that I don't like 
    him. I responded to the 'Koopa Komplaint' by doing... nothing!
    According to me, Koopa Troopa is the best! Everyone is entitled to an
    opinion, and that's my opinion. You want your opinion heard? Send your
    own character reviews in and next version, I'll start a new section, 
    called 'The Readers Rate The Characters' so everyone's opinion is on 
    here.
    
    By the way, I DON'T CARE ABOUT HATE MAIL! I'll do 2 things with it: 
    I'll either delete it; or I'll grab it, shine it up real nice, turn it
    sideways, and STICK IT STRAIGHT UP YOUR (for censorship reasons, the
    following obscenity could not be printed - Psy)!
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    6. CHARACTER LINE PREFERENCE TOP 10
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    This section has no popularity and the survival cord is hanging by a 
    thread so it is pretty much over unless people send in their 
    preferences and give it a lifeline. Anyway, there will be a new
    Section 6, called 'The Readers Rate The Characters'. This, if it's in
    the FAQ at all, will be Section 7. If this folds, it will be taken 
    over by 'The Characters And How They Rate', funny enough that my line,
    the first shred of life for this section, started out in 'The 
    Characters And How They Rate'. Yes, it would be a painful homecoming.
    So, if you can find it in your heart to save a dying section, send one
    email containing one character line preference to:
    
    psytom2000@hotmail.com
    
    So PLEASE, out of the goodness of your heart, please help save this 
    dying section, save it so much that it turns into a Top 20... PLEASE!

    This track is boring so all I'm saying is that there is a shortcut 
    here. Get a mushroom and go over the dirt near the end and you'll cut
    1 or 2 seconds off.
    
    P.S. This track is so easy that if you lose this race you are SO crap.

    This one is also too easy. Anyone for a challenge go to Special Cup.
    Yeah, anyway, the bumpy corner near the end is the only hazard. There
    is a shortcut on this track, it was on the map but not noted here. How
    to do it, you need a mushroom, then, when you get to the * part of the
    track, there is a gap in the barrier, 'room through it and will cut 1
    second off.
    
    P.S. Use the 'Opponents can't turn' Game Genie code when the leaders 
         are on the straight in the middle, they can't turn so they go in
         the water, let them go so they're banging into the barrier 
         outside the first straight, then take it off and they will be put
         back on the track - at the start so they are last!

    Don't bump into the walls and you'll be fine. If you get a feather you
    can get a shortcut near the end.
    
    P.S. If you use the 'Opponents can't turn' Game Genie code, the 
         opponents will go into no-where because the walls disappear. They
         will eventually get put back on the track, presumably by Lakitu.

    Okay, I admit it, I made a mistake. I put the turbos on the wrong side
    on the map, there are actually 2 turbos on the left and 1 on the 
    right, not 1 on the left and 2 on the right. This, however, does not
    change how easy this track is. Anyway, put a banana on the left hand 
    side of the turbo on the right hand side of that straight and some 
    other sorry kart will end up sliding on it. Make sure it isn't you.
    
    P.S. The 'Opponents can't turn' Game Genie code can screw them bad if
         you know how to use it.

    *snore*... Huh? Oh sorry, I keep dozing off when I play this track, 
    and I take it that is why I have a bad record on this track because
    this track is too easy to lose. Oh well, if I have to write a guide
    for this track, then, well, I have to write a guide for this track. 
    So, all you have to do is go around the track. Easy, isn't it? Well,
    there is a kind of a shortcut to make it much easier. If you can get a
    mushroom, you can zoom over the dirt near the start. But I'll just get
    something off my chest: There is absolutely NO way to get a feather on
    this track. I 'spose Nintendo programmed that into, or rather, out of,
    this part of the game 'cause with a feather, there could be some MAJOR
    shortcut opportunities! Oh well, back to sleep...
    
    P.S. Hang on, I can't sleep knowing I didn't tell you this. If you put
         the 'Drive Anywhere' Game Genie code on, the computer opponents
         will reach the part where you turbo-jump over the previous part 
         of the track, and they will just keep going around the loop! 
         Well, now I've told you that, now I can go back to sleep...

    This is, well, in a way hard, but in another, more accurate way, easy.
    The reason it might seem hard is because it's the biggest challenge so
    far. The reason it's easy is because it's only the 6th track out of 20
    and therefore has to be easy. Really, all I have to say is, just stay
    on the track, especially if you are Bowser or DKjr.
    
    P.S. The fact that there are no shortcuts on this track contributes to
         the fact that this track is boring.

    get it, you'll find it about five seconds in, on the 'inside' of that
    corner with some items on it. There is a turbo at the end, but it's 
    hard to get 'cause it's on the inside of a hard corner.

    I skipped some things and made a mistake when I originally did this.
    For one thing, yes, I believe it is possible to use a feather at the
    end of the dead end and make it although I haven't been able to do it.
    And, when you land on the track, there is a turbo there that I didn't
    mention. Apart from that, there is a turbo at the end that I did 
    mention.
    
    P.S. This is my favourite track, mainly because of the track on Mario 
         Kart Super Circuit, on the Gameboy Advance. I'll tell you why

    how it's too hard for the Flower Cup and they should have put it... 
    wait, this isn't the time for all that. Okay, the hairpin turn in the
    middle of the track pisses me off, but, hey, that's just me. I 
    overlooked a shortcut in my rage, near the end there is a gap in the
    barrier so you can mushroom through the gap. There is also a turbo at
    the end that I forgot to point out.
    
    P.S. Okay, here's where I complain. This track is way too hard for the
         Flower Cup and it should be in the Special Cup. You could always
         kick Koopa Beach 2 out of the Special Cup 'cause as I always say,
         that should be in the Flower Cup!

    In V1.0, I said nothing. But now, I'll tell you what's important. You
    can travel the shallow water in the middle of the track, and you can
    get an item on the way.
    
    P.S. Did you know that this should be in the Mushroom Cup? But 
         seriously, there's a shortcut in this track similar to the 
         Vanilla Lake 2 shortcut:
         At the start, turn a sharp left so you're driving just to the 
         right of the checkered starting stripe and you're driving at the
         water. Hop just before you hit the water so you jump into the 
         water. Keep going forward until just before Lakitu comes, then go
         left. It's hard to do but you know you've done it right when 
         Lakitu goes through the line, puts you down, leaves, then 
         immediately comes back with the 'Lap 2' sign.
         (Thanks to Sora Sakura for that shortcut).

    The ongoing tradition of Star Cup being like the 'Hard' difficulty 
    only takes effect here, but, it hits hard. It'll take a while to 
    actually come 1st on this track. Getting repeatedly knocked into the
    lava by your opponents is a specialty. Well, anyway, just try and 
    avoid the Thwomps and stay on the track and you should be fine.
    
    P.S. Anyone that saw this track guide in V1.0 knows the legendary 
         story of how Luigi kept falling into lava and still came 1st. But
         if you don't know the story, it will be here in V3.0 if I get 5

    You know what, this track is identical to Mario Circuit 3 in so many
    ways. For one, it's really hard. Also, the hairpin in the middle. And,
    the shortcut at the end.
    
    P.S. What, you think this is hard? Wait for the Special Cup.

    All you can do here is hope that the opponents don't knock you around.
    If you have a Game Genie, then use the 'Opponents can't turn' code.

    KOOPA BEACH 2
    
    I have 2 things to say:
    1. I reckon you could get a feather and jump into the middle of the 
       track, then use the bumpers to get to a latter part of the track 
       (in other words, I smell a shortcut!).
    2. This track makes me snore louder than Mario Circuit 2.
    
    P.S. This should be in the Flower Cup.

    GHOST VALLEY 3
    
    You know what, I've actually improved on this track so I can give you
    some help on this. Avoid the holes in the track. Avoid the sides of 
    the track so they stay there and avoid getting close to a part of the
    track where there is no wall.
    
    P.S. Using the 'Opponents can't turn' Game Genie code helps a lot.

    VANILLA LAKE 2
    
    This is basically Vanilla Lake 1 with a shortcut: 
    At the start, turn a sharp left so you're driving just to the right of
    the checkered starting stripe and you're driving at the water. Hop 
    just before you hit the water so you jump into the water. Keep going
    forward until just before Lakitu comes, then go left. It's hard to do
    but you know you've done it right when Lakitu goes through the line, 
    puts you down, leaves, then immediately comes back with the 'Lap 2' 
    sign.
    
    P.S. This is just a bit easy for Special Cup.

    Finally... the one track in the Special Cup that actually lives up to
    the, as I call it, 'expert' rating of the Special Cup. This track is
    'hard, damn hard' and it's hard to win without a Game Genie code. All
    you can do if you DON'T have a Game Genie is, stay on the track. Or, 
    download an emulator with an 'in-built' Game Genie and play on your 
    PC.
    
    P.S. Stay far away from the Thwomps as they are not your average 
         Thwomps. You hit 'em, you spin out.

    14.BATTLE MODE TACTICS
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Can everyone please send in Battle Mode Tactics for this Battle Mode
    Tactics section so this Battle Mode Tactics section can get very big
    and you, the reader, have so much info that you are UNBEATABLE! And
    yes, you'll get credit for it.
    
    EASY RED SHELL ATTACK
    
    Okay, say you are in one lane and your opponent is in the next one. 
    You are both near the same end of the same barrier. Here's what you 
    would be thinking without this tactic: 
    
    GUY TRYING TO RUN AWAY - "Damn, I gotta turn around and scoot".
    GUY WITH RED SHELL ----- "Damn, I'll have to keep chasing him".
    
    And here's WITH the tactic: 
    
    GUY TRYING TO RUN AWAY - "Damn, I gotta turn around and scoot".
    GUY WITH RED SHELL ----- "Aha! I can fire now 'cause it will fire in
                              a kind of circle, which will go AROUND the
                              end of the barrier and will then proceed to
                              knock the lights out of my opponent!"
    
    Yep, there's your tactic. Use it wisely, and you'll never lose a game
    (in Battle Course 1 at least).

    16.TIPS AND TRICKS
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    You wanna send in some tips. Here's where they go.
    
    BOOST START
    
    At the start of any race, press and hold the B button exactly in the 
    middle of the first and second 'BEEP's and you will get a boost start.
    Easy to do but don't stuff up. Do it early and you get a skid start;
    do it late and you just do a normal start (sent in by Mike Groels).
    
    LITTLE RIDER
    
    At the character select screen, press Y & A at the same time to race
    a little rider, as if you've been zapped by lightning.
    
    ROTATE YOUR REPLAY
    
    If you go perfectly in a time trial and you don't hit any obstacles 
    then when you go to Replay, you can move the camera with L & R.
    
    EASY SPECIAL CUP (ONLY IN VS. AND TIME TRIAL)
    
    When you go to the track select screen in VS. or Time Trial, and you
    haven't unlocked Special Cup in 100cc yet, then you can still do VS.
    and Time Trial Special Cup by pressing, in this order:
    L R L R L L R R A.
    Then Special Cup will appear and you will have access to Special Cup 
    in VS. and Time Trial.
    
    SAVE YOUR GHOST
    
    If you go perfectly in a time trial and you don't hit any obstacles 
    then you can save the ghost. On the screen with CHANGE COURSE, RETRY,
    etc. hold L R & Y and then, while still holding L R & Y, press X. Your
    ghost is now saved. The track that you saved the ghost for will appear
    in yellow. To race against the ghost, hold L & R and press B on the 
    'Are you sure?' screen to go into the track and race against the 
    ghost. I think you can only save 1 ghost in the whole game, though.
    
    COMPUTER GHOST
    
    When choosing your character for a Time Trial session, press START on
    Controller 2 and 'COM' will appear on Luigi. Then choose the 'COM' 
    character on Controller 2, then choose your character with Controller
    1. Then choose the race and you will race against a computer ghost!

    17.GAME GENIE CODES
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Send in your Game Genie codes. If I think they're good they'll get 
    here.
    
    1A3E-CDA4: Invincible (Nothing looks different but if you hit an 
                           opponent, they spin out!)
    
    3DEB-CDA4: Repeating Lightning (The screen keeps flashing all colours
                                    and the opponents are real small and
                                    all they do is spin around!)
    
    3FEB-CDA4: Repeating Feather (Keep Jumping. Only catch? The moment you
                                  hit anything that isn't the track, maybe
                                  a bridge, maybe even an item box, the 
                                  game will freeze. Damn, and I thought 
                                  there would be some MAJOR shortcut 
                                  opportunities... Funny, though!)
    
    4FEB-CDA4: Drive Anywhere While On Ground (You can start, cross the 
                                               line, then turn so you are
                                               off the track area, then go
                                               back to when you're before
                                               the line, then go back to
                                               the track and cross the 
                                               line and that is one lap.
                                               One lap takes about 5 
                                               seconds! Do it for all 
                                               laps, the track will take
                                               20-30 seconds!)
    
    4DEB-CDA4: Drive Anywhere While In The Air (You can start, cross the 
                                                line, then turn so you are
                                                off the track area, then 
                                                go back to when you're 
                                                before the line, then go
                                                back to the track and 
                                                cross the line and that
                                                is one lap. One lap takes
                                                about 5 seconds! Do it for
                                                all laps, the track will 
                                                take 20-30 seconds!)
    
    2CEB-CDA4: Opponents Mushroom Speed (The opponents are going 
                                         super-fast, and, as a result, 
                                         they go all over the place!)
    
    3FC4-CDA4: Mushroom Speed (Everyone is super-fast, it stuffs the
                               opponents up but if you can control your 
                               kart, you can win!)
    
    C4EB-CDA4: Opponents can't turn (Very easy to win because your 
                                     computer opponents can't turn so they
                                     keep bashing into the wall, while you
                                     can go around normally! Guarantees a
                                     win every time!)
    
    C7EB-CDA4: South-East 'Magnet' (Funny! Everyone, including you, gets 
                                    pulled to the south-east and there is
                                    no way to actually drive around the
                                    course!)
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    19.HEY CAN I JUST SAY SOME STUFF...
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    This is where I just say some stuff. In V1.0, This was chock-full of
    stuff that I have moved to their sections. But the three following 
    things don't have a section... yet. The MKSC references will go to the
    tracks when I get enough request-mail. The one about the first guide 
    will end up on this section's replacement, 'Useless Stuff', which 
    places everything in a rut because that can't go on until this section
    is six feet under. No decision on the one about the night-time screen
    on MKSC though. I haven't decided whether to just kick it when someone
    emails me saying they've done it, or to put it in 'Useless Stuff'. Or
    maybe I'll do a hall of fame. I'll keep you updated.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    This guide does not refer in any way to the SMK tracks in Mario Kart 
    Super Circuit on Gameboy Advance... yet. But, since I said I wanted 15
    emails to convince me, I have received # so I need # more to convince
    me.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    My first guide was actually not this. Of course I eventually noticed
    there were plenty of guides on GameFAQs for that game so I have kept
    my guide and I will put it on the net only if I put up my own 
    (currently under construction) web site or if I get another 
    opportunity to put it on the net. Ever since I said 30 emails, I've
    gotten #. So, # more and I'll tell you all what it was.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Email me if you've got all 3 stars on every track in Mario Kart Super
    Circuit, and the night-time title screen, for 2 reasons:
    1. It'd be cool to see if someone has actually done it.
    2. I'll tell you the reason I like Bowser Castle 2!
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    20.THANKS TO...
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    My brother, for telling me (before I saw it) that there was already
    lots of guides for the game I was creating a guide for, and motivating
    me to do this one.
    
    Nintendo, for the game (and let's not forget, without Nintendo, not
    only would this game not exist, but Mario wouldn't exist!).
    
    The PPLZ who sent their PSY-TOPPLING TIMEZ:
    
    Sonicman
    Sora Sakura
    Wedge
    Jonathan Walsh
    
    Sora Sakura for a big Koopa Beach 1 shortcut.
    
    Mike Groels, for convincing me that DKjr really isn't too bad after 
    all, and sending in the correct way to do a boost start.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    21.WHAT'S HAPPENING ON V3.0?
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    What I plan to do on V3.0:
    MAPS SECTION (by the way, I'm counting on you guys to do the maps!)
    THE READERS RATE THE CHARACTERS (you rate the characters!)
    
    What might be done on V3.0 but could start on V4.0 or even V5.0:
    USELESS STUFF (to replace 'Hey can I just say some stuff...')
    
    What might be erased from the guide for V3.0 but might not be erased:
    HEY CAN I JUST SAY SOME STUFF... (make way for 'Useless Stuff'!)
    CONTROLS (give me a good reason not to and I won't)
    
    What YOU need to do is help me get rid of 'Hey can I just say some 
    stuff...' by sending emails for MKSC references, and for finding out
    the original first guide of Psy. That way I can replace it with 
    'Useless Stuff', which, incidentally, is where the name of the guide
    I originally did will go.
    
    WHAT I MEAN
    
    MAPS SECTION: What this is about is you guys sending in maps. The 
                  rules are - Anyone can send in maps. Anyone that sends 
                  in a map gets their map on and receives automatic 
                  recognition. All maps sent in will get in, REGARDLESS 
                  of how many maps that track has. You can never have too
                  many maps or too much help.
    
    THE READERS RATE THE CHARACTERS: I'm not going to deal with complaints
                                     on this one! It's you, rating the 
                                     characters. Remember to rate all the
                                     characters!
    
    Here's the list of stuff I hope to eventually start.

    just send them a little email saying "It's wrong to steal stuff, so 
    as much as I hate to sound like a moral 'idiot', GET MY GUIDE THE HELL
