About this FAQ 2. Version History 3. DOs and DON'ts 4. Roster Menu 5. Main Options Screen 6. Appearance Menu 7. Stats Menu 8. Celebrity Look Alikes 9. Notes & Thanks ======================================================================= About this FAQ ======================================================================= First off I have gotten this idea when I saw how many people were asking questions about different things about create a character mode, and I noticed there was not a FAQ written that could help them so, I figured that I could help all of those people since I knew basically what that option was about, and have enough time to search and write down every option in there If you have any questions or comments or have found any mistakes or have found a way to make a celebrity look alike, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try to fix the mistake or add your character on the FAQ on my next update and I will also be sure to give you full credit of it. ======================================================================= Version History ======================================================================= 1.0 - Have it completed, the only things that need updating are the Celebrity Look Alikes Last Updated: Sunday, 27 January, 2002 ======================================================================= The DOs and DON'Ts ======================================================================= There are many things that will either make your created skater either really good or really bad. Some of the ideas may not be so abvious, and others may be quite obvious. The DON'Ts - Never make the shirt color and the pants color the exact same, it will not look as good. - Do not make your skater too fat or too thin, it may look cool at first, but eventually it does not work well when you are looking at something. - Do not make you stats too heavy in just one catagory, all the others will be real bad and will end up hurting you. The DO's - If you want a skater to have the same color shirt and pants, try to find two colors that are close, but not the same. - Try to make all of your stats somewhat even, (If you do not have any idea of how to set them up I gave a few options in the Stats Menu area. - Try to make a specific style of clothing for your skater ie. thug, goth, skater, prep etc. =======================================================================Roster Menu ======================================================================= When you first get into the Main Menu of the game, you should notice an option called Create Skater. If you decide you want to make a skater that resembles you or one of your friends, go into this option. The first screen that appears is a Roster Menu. There is not much to do here. All it shows is the names of all of your created skaters (up to four) and some options at the bottom. If you have made a created character but did not like it very much, go to that skater and press the Square button, this should delete this character. If you have a character on another memory card or save press the Circle button, this should lead you to a screen resembling the one where you load your career and the controls are all the same. If you want to leave this menu press the Triangle button and this should put you back to the Main Menu. If you have found a character that you want to change or make a new one, go to them and press the X button and you will go onto the next screen. =======================================================================Main Options Screen ======================================================================= Name- You can make your name anything that you want to using letters numbers and some symbols, the default option is Skater A. Hometown- You can enter the name that you want your skater to live in, once again you have the options of numbers letters and some symbols, the default option is Woodland Hills. Age- You can choose the age of your skater, ages vary anywhere from 5 years old to 55 years old, and add up by one, so you can choose any age within that range. Style- There are three different styles that each skater can be. Vert, Street and All Around. A vert skater should have better Air, Hangtime, Ollie, Speed, and Spin, while a street skater should have better Switch, Rail Balance, Lip Balance, Manuals, and Speed, but an all around skater should have average of every thing. Stance- There are two options here, Regular and Goofy. A regular stance is when your feet face the right, and a goofy stance is when your feet face the left.
