----------------------------------------------------------------------- What is 
this FAQ  1.3                                          
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  [email protected] 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.                              
1.0- First started the FAQ, wrote down all the  options in  every menu.
1.1- Formatted these options to FAQ form and  hopefully will get it all
1.2- Added the DO's and DON'Ts section; Changed Art at the top.    
1.3- Added a couple of Celebrity Look 
Last Updated- June 5, 2001                                            
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

- 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 

- Try to make a specific style of clothing for your skater ie. thug,
  goth, skater, prep etc. 
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 
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      
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          
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    
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                                   
Appearance Menu                                                         
In this menu you have to determine what you skater will look like and  wear.

Note: These are just examples that I have made up they are not a direct  
outline of what your skater should be, just an example of what a good    skater 
of that type would be.                                           
-----------------------------------------------------------------------    Trick 
In this menu you can choose what all of your skaters moves and specials will be. 
What I usually do since you don't get much money is leave every thing as is. This 
way you do not waste any of your money on bad specials, and do not worry you can 
get all of the sick score goals with out using any specials, once you do get 
enough money, you can re-enter this option from any of the game play modes except 
for 2 Player Mode then buy good 
Once you are though the other options you will get sent here, once you are here 
you can get any board that you have already unlocked from any character. You can 
re-enter this option from any of the game play modes  except for 2 Player Mode 
and change your board.                         
Secret Characters                                                       
There are more people that you can get by  holding L1 at  the Main Menu screen 
and press U,S,S,T,R,U,C,T the screen will shake in confirmation,  then go to 
create a skater and enter these names and a pre made        character should
