    1. Basic Stuff
    Star Wars: Demolition is the latest Star Wars title for Playstation as of
    Christmas 2000.  It is a vehicular combat game similar to Twisted Metal, Rogue
    Trip, and Vigilante 8.  Demolition was created by Luxoflux, creators of
    Vigilante 8 and Vigilante 8: Second Offense, and published by Activision. 
    Basically what you do in this game is pick a character/vehicle, then blast the
    heck out of all your opponents.  Pretty straightforward, huh?
    Controls (Default):
    Left:	Turn Left
    Right:	Turn Right
    Up:	Nothing
    Down:	Nothing
    X:	Accelerate
    []:	Brake
    /\:	Rear View
    O:	Switch Targets (only if Auto-Target is off)
    When you start the game for the first time, you will be prompted to create a
    player profile.  Enter your name and confirm.  Now your progress will be saved
    under your name.  If other people want to play, they can either use your
    profile (if you let them) or create a new one (up to 8 can be stored on 1
    memory card, using up 1 file.)
    The Main Menu
    Player Profiles
    Use to create a new user profile, or select one from the list to resume your
    1-Player Games
    Play the game with 1 player.
    2-Player Games
    Play the game with 2 players.
    Setup the game.
    Game types
    All game types can be played by 1 or 2 players.
    Engage in a single battle against up to 4 foes.  In 2-player mode, you can
    choose vs. battle or co-op battle.
    Tournament Mode
    The main game mode, play through 4 battles of increasing difficulty.  In
    2-player mode, both players have to survive in order to advance.
    High Stakes Mode
    A series of 1-on-1 battles, with each player wagering a number of credits on
    him/herself.  The winner gains a percentage fo the wager, based on his/her
    win/loss record.  A worse win/loss record means worse odds, which translates
    into a higher payoff.  For instance, if you have lost more than you have won,
    you will gain more credits than you bet if you win.  The first player to win
    10,00 credits is declared the victor.
    Hunt-a-Droid Mode
    Hunt down Imperial Probe Droids and waste 'em.  Try to destroy as many as you
    can in the time limit.
    If this is on, the target for your attacks is selected automatically.  If it is
    off, you have to use the target selection button (default is O) to switch

    2.  Character Evaluations
    Wade Vox
    Vehicle: Landspeeder
    Special Weapon: Force Blast
    Armor: 6
    Speed: 8
    Weapon: 3
    Comments:  His Force Blast is fairly short-ranged and doesn't track, so get in
    close before you try to use it, and keep your enemy in your sights.
    Vehicle: AAT (Episode I Battle Tank)
    Special Weapon: Tank Cannon
    Armor: 10
    Speed: 3
    Weapon: 3
    Commnets:  His Tank Cannon is slow and doesn't track, so by the time it gets
    where you aimed it, the target will be long gone, unless you can anticipate
    your opponent's movements.
    Aurra Sing
    Vehicle: Custom Swoop
    Special Weapon: Sniper Rifle
    Armor: 2
    Speed: 6
    Weapon: 8
    Comments:  Awww, yeah, baby!  I LOVE Aurra Sing!  Her sniper rifle tracks
    opponents, and fires a bullet that has unlimited range, and ricochets off
    obstacles to reach the target.  The ricochet can also cause it to hit multiple
    targets if they are close together.  It does respectable damage, too.
    General Otto
    Vehicle: AT-ST
    Special Weapon: Concussion Grenades
    Armor: 8
    Speed: 2
    Weapon: 6
    Comments: He's horrendously slow, the only vehicle slower is the Rancor.  His
    Concussion Grenade Launcher throws a spread of bouncy explosives in an arc in
    front of the walker.
    Tia & Ghia
    Vehicle: Snowspeeder
    Special Weapon: Tow Cable
    Armor: 7
    Speed: 9
    Weapon: 1
    Comments:  The Tow Cable does horribly low damage, but you can have fun by
    hitting somebody with it, then running through a trap such as the boulder on
    Yavin or the carbonite chambers on Bespin.
    Or just snare 'em and throw out lots of Thermal Detonators. 8)
    Boba Fett
    Vehicle: Jetpack
    Special Weapon: Disintegrator
    Armor: 1
    Speed: 4
    Weapon: 10
    Comments:  The coolest villain in the series after Darth Maul, and he rocks,
    too.  His Disintegrator launches a big purple ball that throws out lightning
    bolts which freeze vehicles in their tracks and do massive damage.
    Tamtel Skreej (Secret Character)
    Vehicle: Desert Skiff
    Special Weapon: Skiff Deck Gun
    Armor: 5
    Speed: 7
    Weapon: 4
    Comments:  This is Lando Calrissian in his Palace Guard disguise.  His Skiff
    Deck Gun fires a tracking projectile, similar to Aurra Sing's Sniper Rifle, but
    slower and more damaging, and without the ricochet.  To unlock him, you need to
    score an Ultimate Victory with both Wade Vox and Boba Fett.
    Wittin (Secret Character)
    Vehicle: Remote Controlled STAP with Battle Droid pilot
    Special Weapon: Ion Blast
    Armor: 3
    Speed: 5
    Weapon: 8
    Comments:  His Ion Blast immobilizes the target and knocks it down, doing some
    damage as well. To unlock him, you need to score an ultimate victory with both
    Aurra Sing and Quagga.
    Pugwis (Secret Character)
    Vehicle: Custom Racing Pod
    Special Weapon: Sonic Boom
    Armor: 4
    Speed: 10
    Weapon: 3
    Comments:  This  is Sebulba's (from Episode 1) grandson. His Sonic Boom gives
    the Pod a turbo boost that propels it past the sound barrier, creating a
    shockwave that does decent damage in a wide radius.  Also, if you ram someone
    while boosted, it does big-time damage.  To unlock him, you need to score an
    ultimate victory with both General Otto and Tia & Ghia.
    Malakili (Secret Character)
    Vehicle: Rancor
    Special Weapon: Grab and Throw
    Armor: 9
    Speed: 1
    Weapon: 6
    Comments:  He's horribly slow, but his armor is great, and his Grab and Throw
    really hurts!  Basically, the Rancor throws a tantrum for the special, pounding
    the ground twice to create a shockwave similar to a level 4 Thermal Detonator. 
    Note that if the Rancor's arms touch a vehicle on the first hit, it will pick
    up the vehicle, pound it on the ground, then hurl it across the arena.  To
    unlock him, you need to score an ultimate victory with Tamtel Skreej, Pugwis,
    and Wittin.
    Lobot (Secret Character)
    Vehicle: Combat Cloudcar
    Special Weapon: Carbonite Ball
    Armor: 8
    Speed: 7
    Weapon: 2
    Comments: This is Lando's assistant with the computer in his head from The
    Empire Strikes Back.  His Carbonite Ball has a short range, and freezes the
    target for a long time, doing medium damage when they unfreeze. To unlock him,
    you need to score an ultimate victory with Malakili.
    Boussh (Secret Character)
    Vehicle: Speeder Bike
    Special Weapon: Thermal Detonator
    Armor: 2
    Speed: 6
    Weapon: 8
    Comments: Boussh (pronounced "Bosh") is the bounty hunter Leia impersonates at
    the beginning of Return of the Jedi to free Han Solo.  His Thermal Detonator is
    thrown at the targetted vehicle, and does heavy damage in a medium radius. To
    unlock him, you need to score an ultimate victory with Malakili.
    Darth Maul  (Secret Character)
    Vehicle: Sith Speeder
    Special Weapon: Double Lightsaber
    Armor: 3
    Speed: 5
    Weapon: 8
    Comments: The Sith Speeder is the U-shaped speeder bike Darth Maul leaps off of
    before the battle on Tatooine.  His Double Lightsaber is attached to the
    handlebars, and can be used to hit multiple times by simply driving past
    another vehicle closely. To unlock him, you need to score an ultimate victory
    with Malakili.
    3. Weapon Evaluations
    Tractor Beam
    L1: Grabs your opponent.
    L2: Repulses your opponent.
    L3: Repulses multiple opponents.
    L4: Repulses and damages multiple opponents.
    I hate the tractor beam.  It works well against me by keeping me from getting
    the power-ups I need, but I rarely use it myself.
    Thermal Detonator
    L1: Drops a TD behind your vehicle.
    L2: Buries 2 detonators in the ground which act like land mines.
    L3: Launches 3 TDs forward.
    L3: Launches a huge TD that causes a shockwave when it goes off.
    Thermal Detonators are ok, but I'd rather have Concussion Missiles, or better
    yet, Proton Torpedoes.
    Concussion Missiles
    L1: Launches a missile which tracks slowly.
    L2: Launches 2 missiles which stick close together.
    L3: Launches 3 missiles in a spread.
    L4: Launches 3 missiles that stick together and act as 1.
    I like the Concussion Missiles, but they are a bit slow, meaning that Final
    Blows are hard to land with them.
    Proton Torpedoes
    L1: Launches a torpedo that is fast and powerful, but doesn't track and wastes
    a lot of weapon power.
    L2: Launches a torpedo that is even faster than level 1.
    L3: Launches a torpedo that is twice as powerful as level 1.
    L4: Fires a short-range, super-powerful stream of protons.
    This is my favorite weapon.
    4. Power-up Evaluations
    Cloaking Device
               | (Purple)
    Turns you invisible and makes you disappear from your opponent's radar, but
    deactivates your shields.  Very useful.
    Deflector Shield
    /         \
     ---------       (Blue)
    Makes you impervious to blaster shots, but has no effect on other types of
    weapons.  Pretty useless if you ask me.
    Energy Converter
    _________      (Yellow)
    |        \
    When you get hit by blasters, it will increase your weapon and shield energy
    slightly.  OK, but the Cloaking Device is better.
    R2 Droid
    Looks like R2-D2.  Constantly repairs your armor.  Very useful for staying
    alive in tough battles.  Also, if you get one and wait for it to repair your
    armor to full before delivering the final hit to the last enemy, you won't have
    to spend any credits on repairs.
    Power Droid
    Looks like a trash can.  Increases your weapon energy's maximum capacity.  Also
    increases your rate of fire.  The worst of the droids IMHO.
    Tactical Droid
    Looks like a floating sphere with a blaster turret.  Automatically attacks
    nearby enemies and makes your weapons charge faster.  This one is all right,
    but the R2 is still the best IMHO.
    Shield Recharge Station
    This will be an area with a blue force-field type of thing around it.  Go
    inside to recharge your shields much faster than the normal recharge rate. 
    Note that in High Stakes and Tournament this will drain your credits at a rate
    of about 20 per second
    Weapon Recharge Station
    This will be an area with a red force-field type of thing around it.  Go inside
    to recharge your weapon energy much faster than the normal recharge rate.  Note
    that in High Stakes and Tournament this will drain your credits at a rate of
    about 20 per second.
    5. Level Guide

    6. Strategy
    Force Hits
    Force Hits are a great way to rack up some serious credits.  To score a Force
    Hit, first hit an enemy with a L2 blaster attack, a L3 blaster attack, or a
    mounted weapon.  This will light up a number of yellow pips (Force Multipliers)
    on the left edge of your status display.  Once you have at least one lit up,
    unleash a level 4 attack (either weapon) to score a Force Hit.  The screen will
    display the words "(Your name) scores Force Hit x(#)!" where the # is the
    number of Force Multipliers that were lit up when you did the Force Hit. 
    Beware, if an opponent hits you with a L2 or L3 blaster attack, or a mounted
    weapon, it will decrease your Force Multipliers.
    Final Blows
    Another way to score some big cash, Final Blows can only be done when a vehicle
    has been demolished (no armor left), but before it's destroyed (blows up.)  To
    do a Final Blow, charge up both your mounted weapon and your lasers to L4, then
    hit the vehicle with both.  Note that they must both hit at the same time, so
    slower weapons such as Concussion Missiles should be fired slightly before the
    other weapon, unless you are very close.
    How to get an Ultimate Victory
    To get an Ultimate Victory (essential for unlocking new vehicles), you need to
    clear Tournament Mode with more than 10,000 credits.  Here are a few guidlines
    for doing so.
    1.  Employ hit-and-run tactics using Force Hits.
    2.  Try to hit multiple times with mounted weapons or L2 and L3 laser attacks
    to build up those Force Multipliers to 6 or more before scoring a Force Hit.
    3.  Try to find the R2 Droid to minimize the armor damage to your vehicle, so
    that your repair cost is as low as possible.
    4.  Use Cloaking Device Power-Ups to attack undetected, especially if you have
    a slow vehicle such as the AAT, AT-ST, or Rancor, which can't rely on speed to
    surprise opponents.
    5.  Set the damage to High in the Options> Preferences menu.
    Here's a chart of how many credits you should try to have at the end of each
    1: 2,000 or more
    2: 4,000 or more
    3: 7,000 or more
    4: 10,000 or more
    This shouldn't be too hard, since you score an average of 1,000 credits per
    kill on High damage.
    You start with 1,000 credits, and there are 10 opponents, which comes to
    11,000.  Add in the extra cash from doing Force Hits and Final Blows, and you
    have a comfortable amount of extra cash, which can be spent on recharge
    7.  Cheat Codes
    To enter the cheat codes, go to the Options Menu, then the Preferences Menu. 
    Hit L1 and R1 at the same time, and you will be prompted to enter a passcode.
    SLOW_MO_ON:  Runs the game at half normal speed.
    LO_GRAV_ON: Decreases the force of gravity in all levels.
    RAISE_THEM: Makes you invincible.  Note that it also makes the final enemy on
    the final stage in Tournament invincible, meaning you can't beat the game with
    it on.
    ***New New New!***
    THROTTLEUP: Makes your vehicle faster.
    GUNGANHUNT: Turns the Imperial Probe Droids in Hunt-A-Droid mode into Jar Jars,
    who explode in a shower of bones and say "How wude!" when killed.
    Credit goes to Yog Sosoth for these 2 new codes.
    ***End New Stuff***

    off, just enter them again.

    8.  Story/Endings
    Wade Vox:  An Alderaanian merchant who was out on the Corellian Run when his
    home planet was destroyed. Destitute and desperate, he turned to smuggling to
    make ends meet.  He was making a delivery to Tatooine, but refused to pay
    Jabba's outrageous "protection" fee.  He was seized by the Hutt's goons and
    made a slave.  He drives an X-34 landspeeder, which once belonged to Luke
    Skywalker.  Wade would have been killed long ago if it hadn't been for his
    growing Force powers.
    Boba Fett:  He entered the contest at the request of Jabba, who often
    intimidates people into betting on the undefeated bounty hunter's opponents.
    General Otto:  A  soldier for the Empire who lost several key battles to the
    Rebels.  If not for his friendship with Admiral Motti, he would have died at
    Darth Vader's hands.  Instead, he was shipped off to a remote colony to stay
    out of trouble.  However, Otto always dreamed of retiring to Cloud City, so he
    stole an AT-ST and fled to Tatooine, where he entered the Demolition Tournament
    to win enough credits to fulfill his dream.
    Tia & Ghia: A pair of twins from Bestine IV who are infatuated with the
    charming smuggler, Han Solo.  They stole a snowspeeder and abandoned the
    Rebellion to rescue him from Jabba, but were captured and enslaved.
    Aurra Sing:  She was once a Jedi hopeful in the days of the Old Republic, but
    her violent nature forced her out of the order.  She then became a bounty
    hunter, who specialized in hunting down Jedi.  Whenever she kills a Jedi, she
    keeps his/her lightsaber as a trophy.  Recently, she has sensed a new potential
    Jedi in Jabba's contest, so she entered to give her time to find him.
    Quagga:  He is a former Imperial slave who bought his freedom, then settled on
    Tatooine as a mechanic and opened a garage in Anchorhead.  Unfortunately, his
    business is doing poorly, partly because of competition from Jawas, and partly
    because of his remote location.  He entered the contest in hopes of winning
    enough credits to open a garage in Mos Eisley.
    Tamtel Skreej: Following Han Solo's capture by Boba Fett, Lando Calrissian
    disguised himself as a mercenary bodyguard named Tamtel Skreej in order to
    infiltrate Jabba's palace.  However, he needs to become one of Jabba's personal
    guards to get close enough to Han's frozen body to free him.  So, he enters the
    contest to earn Jabba's trust.
    Pugwis:  The grandson of legendary podracing champ Sebulba, he lacks his
    grandfather's skill, but inherited his temper.  After years of failing to make
    any  significant progress in the podracing circuits, he got bitter and started
    to attack opponents, which got him kicked out of professional podracing
    forever.  However, Jabba got an idea from Pugwis and started the Demolition
    Pugwis was, of course, invited to participate.
    Wittin: A Jawa Warlord whose name was feared by moisture farmers all over
    Tatooine, his tribe's sandcrawler was destroyed in a skirmish with Imperial
    troops.  Jabba has offered to buy him a new sandcrawler if he wins the contest.
    Malakili: Malakili is Jabba's Rancor Keeper, and when the tournament got
    popular, the bloodthirsty gamblers demanded more violence.  So Jabba ordered
    Malakili to train the Rancor for battle, and had a special weapon harness
    Note: the following characters have no official story, so I made them up
    Lobot:  After the takeover of Cloud City by Imperial forces, Lobot was sold as
    a slave to Jabba, who immediately procured a combat cloudcar fitted with
    special modifications, including a carbonite weapon.
    Boussh: This is really Princess Leia in disguise.  After Boussh, a low-level
    member of Jabba's court, crossed the Black Sun crime cartel, he was eliminated
    and Leia obtained his outfit and weapons.  She then took his place in Jabba's
    court, and began concocting a plan to free Han.  However, she will need
    Chewbacca to pull it off, and he is currently busy with another matter.  So,
    she has entered the contest in hopes of boosting "Boussh's" favor with the
    Darth Maul:  Recently, a black marketeer offered Jabba a tissue sample from one
    of the greatest Sith warriors ever: Darth Maul.  Jabba agreed, and set to work
    cloning the Sith Lord, while simultaneously building a replica of his
    double-bladed lightsaber and Sith Speeder.  During the cloning process, the new
    Lord Maul was implanted with a cybernetic chip that makes him obey Jabba's
    Endings:  This section contains spoilers, so read at your own risk.
    Wade Vox
    Lose: Wade is brought before Jabba, and shoved to the ground.  Aurra Sing
    approaches with a vibroblade and a wicked grin...
    Win:  Wade parks his speeder, hops out, and starts practing lightsaber combat.
    Boba Fett
    Lose:  Fett stands before Jabba, who triggers the trapdoor into the Rancor pit.
     The bounty hunter falls in, then immediately shoots back out on his jetpack,
    sending Jabba into a fit of jolly laughter.
    Win: Boba Fett lies on a couch in Jabba's throne room.  Lyn Me (a dancer from
    Return of the Jedi Special Edition) hands him a drink.  He nods at Jabba.
    General Otto
    Lose:  Boba Fett brings Otto, in binders, outside of the palace and hands him
    over to a pair of stormtroopers.  The next thing you see is Darth Vader in his
    chamber on the Executor (his starship), staring at Otto, who has a sheepish
    grin on his face.
    Win:  Otto walks out onto the balcony of his apartment in Cloud City and
    Tia and Ghia
    Lose: Tia and Ghia are dressed in slave girl outfits, similar to the one Leia
    wears after being captured by Jabba in Return of the Jedi.  They are feeding
    him while Salacious Crumb (the laughing moneky-thing) laughs at them.
    Win: Leia, wearing her Boussh disguise, escorts the twins in secret to a Rebel
    Aurra Sing
    Lose: Aurra is running through the palace, dodging blaster fire, and dives
    under a closing door, only to see the feet of 2 Gamorreans (pig guards)
    carrying vibro-axes.
    Win:  Aurra watches Wade Vox practice his combat skills through her sniper
    scope.  She takes aim and fires off 4 shots from her blaster rifle (yes, it's a
