    Guide Info
    ----------
    This is my very first attempt at making a FAQ/Guide or walkthrough, whatever you
    choose to call it, so dont expect it to be setup perfectly or anything, however
    I will do my best for I have seen no one else has even made an attempt at a guide
    or a walkthrough for Amped 2.
    
    Note: This Guide will NOT include locations of Snowmen or locations of Gaps. That
    may be added to this Guide futher on, but for now, they will not be included.
    
    Game Info
    ---------
    Amped 2 is a continuation off of the previous game Amped: Freestyle snowboarding.
    It is all Amped lived up too but with more. New larger more detailed mountains,
    all the pros, newly added Own The Mountain objectives by completing all high
    scores, media scores, sponsors, pros, and the new challange, photoshoots. As
    well as still having to find all those snowmen but also gap and trick challanges
    on every hill. New looks and new tricks are just a couple more of this games
    features. This game has amazing graphics, and an amazing soundtrack of 315 songs
    (song list on gamefaqs.com also created by me) as well as add your own songs to
    it. Gameplay is a little different from the first one but still just as great,
    only with the added ability to play it on Live, and compete to be ranked #1 in
    the world on the scoreboards, this game is one that you'll never get bored of
    playing.
    
    Starting Out
    ------------
    First you need to create your character, choosing which one isnt that big of a
    deal, because you can change all their apperence later in the game. There is
    only a few things you can not change about their apperence later, such as, male
    or female, black or white, and not a big deal with the females cause its kinda
    hard to notice, but face as well. All the other options can be changed at any
    point in the game.
    
    Career - This is where you go to start up a main career to proceed on getting
    your character from world rank #250 all the way up to #1. As well as get stat 	
    points to distribute where you choose.
    Multiplayer - This is where you go if you wanna play up to 4 players on 1
    console, system link with another person with the game or connect to xbox Live.
    Tutorial - This is a good thing for beginners to do, It will help in learning
    the basic controls as well as a few skills with the new tricks in the game,
    such as the butter or adding style to your tricks.
    
    
    ===========
    Career Mode
    ===========
    
    Requirements - Must meet these requirements in order to unlock this hill.
    Runs - The different start locations on each mountain.
    High Score - Get the required amount of points in one run to pass the challange.
    Media Score - Get the required amount of points in a media location in one run
    	to pass the challange. (Media locations are near the red icons on the
    	hill, you will notice a camera taking focus on you while in this area).
    Sponsors - Get your meter bar to say Amped and finish the run while its at Amped
    	to complete the sponsors. But different sponsors like different things.
    	Also beware, falling or performing a trick that does not have enough
    	points to his liking will make your bar drop. (The bar already slowly
    	goes down in the sponsors later on in the game).
    PhotoShoots - Yellow rings will appear on the run. You will need to go through
    	all of the rings and finish with the required score. But the trick is,
    	you can not fall or miss a ring while doing this challange.
    Pros - Beat the pros. They will go down the hill and do tricks at random places,
    	You then follow and you must beat the pros score on each jump. Score
    	amounts can be seen by the top right hand corner of the screen or, by
    	the colour of the ring you must perform the trick in. (Trick must be
    	started in the coloured ring, however can be finished anywhere).
    	Colours of scores go in this order from low score to high score tricks.
    	Green, Blue, Red, Gold. You are allowed to miss only 2 tricks in this
    	type of challange, if you miss a 3rd, you lose.
    Legends - There is only one of these per Mountain. You can not do a Legend
    	Challange untill you are ranked #1. Legend challanges are all different.
    	Some will be, high score, or photoshoot, or beat the pro, or sponsor.
    	You dont know which it is, till you go into the challange.
    Tricks - Each mountain has 5 different tricks you must perform while on the
    	mountain, to continue your way to Owning the Mountain. These can be
    	done at any time on the mountain.
    Gaps - There are 5 different gaps on each mountain. You must find these gaps,
    	and jump from the start and land at the end without falling. Gaps
    	are indicated by a glowing blue line that will show you where you
    	need to start the jump and where you need to land. You must get all
    	5 to work towards owning the mountain.
    Snowmen - There are 8 snowmen on each level. These are placed randomly
    	throughout the level and are a pain to try to find them all. You must
    	explore the mountain and listen carefully for them, the louder they are,
    	the closer you are to them. Simply run into them to have it count as
    	finding them. You need to find all 8 snowmen to work towards owning
    	the mountain.
