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!

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:

|        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.

       0000000

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.

Track 7 of 20, now the hard is starting to set in. Avoid the wall and

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

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

     have received # emails on this topic so I only need # more.

Okay, what I want to do is complain about how I hate this track and 
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!

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
     emails on it... eh, stuff it, it'll be here in V3.0 anyway. No

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.

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!

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!)

Hey why don't you send in your good times? See who can get those 
unbeatable times. Or see if there are already some unbeatable times.
But I don't want Game Genie cheaters.

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.

                 WEBSITES THAT ARE ALLOWED HAVE THIS:
                               GameFAQs
                  PsyTom2000Games (when it's put up)

        'Am I writing too much?' is a trademark of PSYTOM2000

If you see 'Am I writing too much?', a ripoff of my guide or my guide
on other sites WITHOUT MY APPROVAL, then email me and I will have that
person pulped...

...Well, no, I won't have that person pulped, I'm not that nice. I'll
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
OFF YOUR SITE, BECAUSE IT'S ILLEGAL, DAMN IT! ILLEGAL!" If things get
MORE out of hand, I'll have to send them a little gift. No, it's not
a virus, I'm not that nice. I'll probably send something... worse... 
Aw, hell, it got deleted... Oh well, I'll get it back somehow.

All characters included in the Super Mario Kart Game Pak for the Super 
Nintendo Entertainment System are fictional, and any resemblance to any

Email me if you want to join a group of people who hate it how 
Nintendo kicked Koopa Troopa out of the other Mario Kart games. If you
have a Hotmail address, please list whether or not you would like to
be added to my MSN Messenger list.

I'll see you on the next update.

By the way, the next update will probably be V3.0 because I don't like
messing around with stuff like that unless there's a real reason to.
