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  mat2810@cs.com 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.

=======================================================================
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. These are both true if they are not in    
        switch and are looking at them from behind, like the camera      
        does when you skate.                                              

Weight- There are many options here- 88, 101, 115, 130, 145, 162, 180,  
        198, 217, 238, 254, 281, 304, 328, 352, and 378. All of these   
        numbers are in pounds.                                          

Once you have all of these option decided, go to where it says next and   you 
should go onto the Appearance Menu

him up something close to this.
