    | Introduction to this FAQ and the game                                | IDX00 |
    Full Throttle is one of the good old adventure games of long lost times. 
    If you wonder how to get this game, I cannot help you, I still got my copy from
    times this was still in store. I'm sure there are sites you can download it 
    from, but since I cannot support software piracy, I cannot give you links.
    If you can give me sites on which this game can be bought/downloaded from
    WITHOUT VIOLATING COPYRIGHTS mail me, and I'll add those to this FAQ.
    Also note that since this game is old you may NOT be able to play it on modern 
    machines. You may need an emulator to play it.
    One of the best out there is DOSBox.
    Download it from: http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/
    I recommand only to use this FAQ when you are stuck, or else this game will be
    no challenge at all. If you are stuck look at the index on what you are doing
    and look at the IDX code. Open a search window (Ctrl-F in Windows and Linux and
    Apple-F in MacOS).
    This game has a dozen of areas or "rooms" as we call them in adventure 
    programming terms. Each time you get into a new room I start with "-".
    Well, that's all folks...
    Let's get started on this
    | Getting away from the kickstand                                      | IDX01 |
    You start the game inside a dumpster
    - = Click on the most right lid to get out of it
      = Exit east
    - Kick the door of the Kickstand to enter
    - = Use the hand icon on the barkeep to get him to give back your keys.
      = Leave the bar
    - Step on your bike to leave
    On your way you got to fight a Rottwheeler. No big deal, he's easy to beat.
    After that you'll get an accident and wake up in Maureen's house.
    | Helping Maureen to fix your bike                                     | IDX02 |
    - You are in Maureen's house. You can hear her out. She needs three items in 
      order to fix your bike. A pair of forks, a welding torch and some fuel.
      = Get the fuel hose from the north wall
      = Take the gas can
      = Examine the picture on the wall (Maureen wil give you some info you need
        later in the game)
      = Exit east
    - Outside you'll find Miranda, the reporter who brought you to Maureen. It does
      not matter what you say to her. When you're done with her, exit west
    - You're on some kind of world map. There are 4 locations. Maureen's house
      (where you are now), a camper, a junkyard and a gas tower.
      Go to the camper
    - = Knock on the door and the owner (Todd) will get mad at you.
      = While he's calling you names behind the door, kick in the door
      = Enter the camper
    - = Open the closet west
      = Get the lockpick out of it
      = Open the fridge up north
      = Get the meat out of it
      = Stand on the east platform to get into a secret area
    - Pick up the welding torche and Ben will automaticly bring it to Maureen
      (And end up outside her house)
    - Exit west
    - Go to the Gas Tower
    - = Pick the lock to open the door (with the Lockpicks from Todd's Camper)
      = Pick up the lock
      = Go through the door
    - = Touch the ladder to trigger an alarm
      = Hide behind the things in the back ASAP. (The security agents will land to
        look for you)
      = Open the gascap of the guard's vehicle
      = Put the fuel hose into it
      = Put the gas can under it
      = Use your mouth on the hose to get the fuel in the can.
      (You'll automaticly bring the fuel to Maureen and end up outside her house)
    - Exit west
    - Go to the junkyard
    - = Put the lock on the door
      = Climb the chord
    - Now if you mess this up you'll be attacked by a dog who guards this place.
      If that happens you won't die but end up at this spot.
      (You can see the forks lying here but getting them now will get you the
      dog after you. So that's not such a good idea).
      = Go down and exit east
    - = Place a piece of meat in one of the western cars (don't get too close to the
      = Exit west
    - = Go up to southern platform and go east
      = Enter the crane up ahead
    - The controls of the magnet crane are not that hard to learn. Use them to take
      the car the dog is in and raise it up in the air as high as possible. Now the
      dog is trapped and you have free game now.
      Leave the crane
    - = Go down
      = Get the forks
    You got now all you need. Maureen will fix your bike.
    Now you have your bike back and you can head for the Ambush
    | The Ambush                                                           | IDX03 |
    When Ben tries to get up with his gang, the security guards of the gas tower are
    watching the road. Don't even think of driving past them.
    - = Park your bike
      = Go to the gas tower
    - Enter the yard
    - Trigger the alarm again (and you'll automaticly get past the guards)
    Now you'll see what Ripburger was planning. 
    You'll end up outside Maureen's shack. 
    - = Examine the junk on the ramp beside the shack. You'll find the picture of 
        Maureen and uncle Pete.
      = Leave this place
    - = Mount your bike and exit north
    | Back at the Kickstand                                                | IDX04 |
    - Enter the Kickstand
    - Inside the barkeep will mention the news.
      = Leave the Kickstand
    - Go to the backside of the bar
    - = Examine the dumpster to find Miranda. She'll get you a fake ID
      = Exit east
    - Enter the kickstand
    - = Show the trucker the picture of Maureen and her uncle Pete.
      = Show him the Fake ID
    Now the trucker will smuggle you past the roadblock and drop you off at
    Uncle's Pete's Mink Ranch.
    | Uncle Pete's Mink Ranch                                              | IDX05 |
    - Enter the house
    - = Remove the pillow from the bed
      = Pick up the tire iron
      = Use it to open the chest
    That concludes this part already
    | Old Mine Road                                                        | IDX06 |
    Oh great, the Cavefish destroyed the bridge.
    You'll be at the place where Emmet dropped his fertelizer
    - = Dismount your bike
      = Use the tire iron on the weels of the trailer
      = Push it
      = Get some fertilizer
      = Get on your bike and exit north
    Now you'll be followed by Bolus and Nestor. Keep going and they'll have an 
    accident because of the fertelizer on the road. You'll end up at the bridge
    the Cavefish set up.
    - Exit east and stop at the crashed limo of Bolus and Nestor
    - = Get off your bike
      = Break open the limo with the tire iron and Ben will steal a fan out of it.
      = Get on your bike and leave in a random direction.
    Okay time to start fighting...
    Take any entrance to the Old Mine Road
    First you'll meet Father Torque. Hear him out about everything. Now all other
    bikers will fight you. Most of them do not matter, but here are a few pointers
    to beat important ones.
    * The punk girl with the chainsaw - Beat her by throwing fertelizer in her eyes
    * The vulture biker with solid booster fuel - With a chain you can win in fight
    * The cavefish - With a plank you can win by fighting (this is a hard one 
      though) (If you do it with the chainsaw they'll blow themselves up leaving
      you with no prize. And you need their goggles and don't attack when his head
      is down. You'll miss)
    When you obtained the next trophies from battle you're done fighting
    - Solid booster fuel rocker (or whatever) (from the speed guy)
    - Goggles (From the cavefish)
    Then you're ready to go
    (If fighting is really too hard for ya, press Shift-V to win every fight 
    (yes, even the CaveFish) instantly. Thank you Fragnarok, for pointing that out).
    - = Press the right mouse button to wear the Cavefish goggles
      = Now you see the road in Cavefish view. Wait until at the button of the 
        cave the word "CAVE" appears, then press the mousebutton to enter the 
        Cavefish Cave
    - Stay on your bike and exit east
    - Stay on your bike and exit south
    - = Get off your bike
      = Use the hand on the ramp twice and Ben will attach it to his bike
      = Get on your bike
      = Exit east
    - = Get of your bike
      = Detach the ramp (and Ben will play a trick which will bring the the
        Cavefish DEATH)
    You'll end up at the broken bridge.
    You should now have, the fan, the rocker booster fuel and the ramp. With this
    you can cross the bridge.
    - = Get on your bike
      = Move the mouse over the road until the sign for exiting east appears
      = Click the left mouse button and you'll be going over the gorge.
    | Outside Corley Motors                                                | IDX07 |
    For the time being you won't be getting inside the factory, so don't even try.
    Your first objective is to get in touch with the Vultures.
    - Go to the lower level and go to the place where the big arrow appears
    - = Distract the "salesman" (Horrace) by mentioning the T-shirts in the back
      = While he's distracted steal the cute bunny.
      = Exit south
    - = Get back on your bike
      = Exit north
    - You'll be at a mine field at the Vultures' hideout.
      = Set the bunny in the minefield and wait till it explodes
      = The bunny's battery will fly through the air and fall on the ground. Pick
        it up. (I'd say there's an easier method for removing batteries).
      = Leave
    - Go back to Horrace's place
    - = Put the battery into the Remote Controlled Car
      = Steer the Remote Controlled Car through the north exit
      = Then drive it through the gates and you're rid of Horrace.
      = Pick up the bunny box
      = Exit south
    - Get on your bike and go back to the Vultures' mine field
    - = Put the box on the ground here
      = Don't wait for the bunnies to explode. Pick them all up in stead
      = Go as far into the mine field and release a bunny
      = Wait for the bunny to explode on a mine
      = The bunny has created a path. Walk it till the end and release another bunny
      = Repeat the previous step until the Vultures catch you.
    - Okay, Ben is in a pretty messy situation. Say the next things to Maureen:
      = "Let me go, or else"
      = "I'll call you names"
      = "Diapered Dynamo"
    Now a sequence will happen in which you get the Vultures' coorporation in 
    opposing Ripburger. Suzy (the leader of the Vultures) will come up with a plan.
    That brings you to the Derby.
    | The Derby                                                            | IDX08 |
    You know the plan. You must collide with Maureen to cause an explosion.
    However Nestor and Bolus will enter the Derby as the "Boom-Boom brothers".
    They will keep Maureen out of your reach.
    = Your car is the red one. Go all the way west
    = Go over the ramp and land on the brown car. Its engine will be shut off so
      it cannot bother you anymore
    = Push that car all the way south-east
    = Push it over the ramp and go over it yourself and you'll land onto the car of
      the Boom-Boom Brothers. (Now the finale with Mo will take place automaticly)
    Now the place will be set on fire as planned
    = Walk along the walls. The stadium will get on fire.
    = After awhile the Boom-Boom Brothers will be getting back in action
    = Step onto the brown car and when the Boom-Boom Brothers attack, jump on their
    = Now they'll start searching the stadium to get you. Jump of the car when they
      are close to the fire in the middle of the field
    = Run into the fire and the Boom-Boom Brothers will follow (committing suicide
      in the process).
    And that concludes the Derby.
    | Sneaking into the factory                                            | IDX09 |
    You start in the Vultures' hideout. Maureen is searching for a key to Old 
    Corley's will. After you're done talking to Maureen (You can say whatever you
    want), you can examine the bike parts if you want. (You can ask her for a clue
    to get into the factory).
    When you're done leave and get this show on the road.
    (On your way out Maureen will give you the pictures of Corley's murder)
    - Go to the back of the factory
    - = Under the left pole is the place to kick. Kick it when all the meters in the
        upper left corner are black and holding still for awhile.
      = Enter the secret passage
    | Inside the factory                                                   | IDX0A |
    - = Examine the safe. It's that strange tile on the floor
      = Enter the next code: 154492
      = Press the big button.
      = You'll get a card and a tape. That tape is Corley's will
      = Exit east
    - = Use the card on the card reader
      = Enter the room behind the right door
    - = Of the great projector put the right lever up and the left one down and
        see what happens
      (You'll end up back in the corridor)
    - Open the left grey door and enter the room
    - = Put on the tape on the recorder and watch what happens.
    A long scenario will take place. You cannot however prevent Ripburger from
    | The last battle with Adrian Ripburger                                | IDX0B |
    It's very uncommon for LucasArts games, but in this section you can die.
    If that happens you'll hear Ben say something like "Hmmm... Let's try that 
    again", and you'll get to play the last part over.
    The only way in which you can die is when you take too much time to do this, and
    that will result into falling into "Pocahoya gorge".
    You start this section by hanging at the front of the truck in which Ripburger
    is driving like crazy
    - = Open the panel and Ripburger will use his cane to close it. Take advantage
        of that by grabbing his cane
      = Open the grill and put Ripburger's cane into it
      (You'll go to the backside of the truck)
    - = Jump onto the higher level 
      = Use the tire iron to cut the fuel line
      Ripburger will try to kill you but Maureen will save you.
      You'll end up in the broken plane of the Vultures
    - = Go to the ladder (Ripburger will try to kill you but fail)
      = Just go up the ladder again (this time Ripburger won't try anything)
    - You're in the cockpit now.
      = Examine the screen
      You'll be in the plane menu. Choose the next options
      = Take off
      = Post take off
      = Gear
      = Raise Gear
      Now watch what happens and you'll be hanging at the edge of the gorge
    - Enter the cockpit of the truck (Ripburger won't allow you to do anything else)
    - Turn on the terminal and choose the next options from the menu:
      = Main menu
      = Defense Menu
      = Machine guns
      = Control
      = System off
      This will kill Ripburger. Now Ben will automaticly climb out of the truck
    - Enter the plane
    - Step on your bike
    This ends the game.....

    Before contacting me, please read carefully.
    If you want me to answer questions about the game itself please visit this
    That is my Q&A site where I (or others) will answer all your game questions.
    If you do, please check if the question you want to ask hasn't been asked 
    before. :)
    If you want to inquire about me as a person, or when you have anything to 
    say about the FAQ itself, like asking permission to host, got suggestions
    for this FAQ, something like that please mail it to
           REJECT YOU!
    If you see that I missed things in this FAQ, then in stead of calling me
    names, you may tip me about that part, or if you want even come up with 
    a complete workout of that part, that I will copy into this FAQ (I may alter
    your lay-out to make it fit with the rest) and even credit you for your
    trouble. This also goes for alternate boss techniques.
    I get a lot of mails in which I must guess which FAQ it is we're talking 
    about, and since I'm very busy as a contributor for GameFAQs, and ocasionally
    other sites, I have quite a lot of FAQs here. So it will help me a lot when
    I know which FAQ/Game it is you're talking about. :)
    And one last thing. Below are remarks I got a lot about my FAQs. Some are
    funny, and some are just plainly too stupid for words. I don't want to be
    an arrogant bastard or anything, but some of them tire me a lot.
    So here are those mails with my standard replies:
      M: Fix your English
      A: Some people say they hardly hear the diffrence between me and an
         English speaking fellow. Others say it sucks. Well, I honestly don't
         care in which category you are. English is NOT my first language. If 
         I spoke my own language you probably couldn't read my FAQs at all.
      A: Anyone who sends mail like this won't receive a reply. In fact they
         will be banned from ever mailing me again. I can understand you do not
         agree with my technique. There are as many as there are people. I can
         also agree you detected that I made a mistake. Well, I'm human you know.
         Making mistakes is part of my nature, as much as it's yours. If you 
         detect errors in my FAQ you can tell me about it in a civil way, and 
         I'll fix it if I agree with you.
      M: Are you a man? A woman? How old are you? Where do you live?
      A: I really got that kind of mails a lot. I don't mind that you know.
         I was quite amused by such mails actually.
         Well, my name is Jeroen Broks. I'm not going to give my private adres
         in this FAQ or anywhere else on the internet, but you may know that
         I live in the Netherlands, I am a man, and I was born in 1975. So on
         the moment I started on this version of this FAQ I was 31 years old.
      M: Fsdasdadasf afsdfasd afdfsaf
      A: Whatever you say I don't understand it. If you mail me, please only do
         so in either English or Dutch or if you really need in German. 
         (Be perpared that if you speak German to me, you might get an answer in
         English, tough).
         I don't speak any other language.
      M: May I translate your FAQ into another language?
      A: If you ask my permission, mostly no problem
      M: Why is Neoseeker banned from hosting your FAQs?
      A: That's something between me and Neoseeker. I don't find it necesary to
         go into detail about that. I noted it in my FAQs to make sure they     
         will never pop up there unnoticed. So don't mail me about it
         cause I won't answer. I got very good reasons for it. That's all you
         need to know.
    And so far this FAQ. I hope you have good use for it!
