FAQ SIZE: Exactly 93.0kb's

(did you really care to know that?) I just felt the need to put it there for
some reason....so bleah!


Please note, this is my *first* FAQ. I'm simply warning you that because
this is my first FAQ it won't be all that good. So please bare with me.
I've yet to spell check it (I'll get around to that in the next update or 
two).


If for any reason you wish to email me (comments, questions, additions, 
suggestions etc) , even if you just want to say "w00t!!!111@" or "Thanks,
your FAQ helped me", IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD SOMETHING TO THIS FAQ
(tips, strategies etc) email me with your idea, I'll happily consider it 
at least and if I like it enough I'll use it, hell I don't mind if you email 
just for the sake of it, so drop me a line my email address is:

vesten@optusnet.com.au

Make sure in the topic you include "Wave Race 64 FAQ" so I know what it's 
about at first glance.

Thanks!

If you are reading this FAQ and it's not at db.gamefaqs.com (check the URL)
send me an email and let me know where you found it (provide link).

If you would like to see my Contributor Recognition page (with a list of 
all of the things I have submitted to GameFAQs) then go and have a look 
here: (it's not too Great at the moment, but one day...one day it will be :P)

Hello and welcome to my 1st FAQ. This FAQ is basically designed to help you 
play Wave Race 64 better. It has a few tips, tricks level maps and plain old
advice to help play better, and ultimately get more enjoyment out of Wave Race
64. I hope that it will help you in some way....and hopefully will lead to many
more FAQs from me in the future.

On a side note, just so you know, I really only created this FAQ so I could
see what FAQ writing was like and to decide if it was my cup or tea or not.
So far I'm really enjoying writing this, and I'm sure that many more FAQs 
and Walkthroughs will come from me in the future.

•  I'm about to make a "freequently asked questions" section, and put in a 
   fair bit more work before the GBA comes out (in 2 days).
 ________________________
(Thursday June 21st, 2001):
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

•  Added "Game Data" Section.


•  GBA is out here tomorrow! w00t! I have a feeling I'll be very consumed by
   Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, and Castlevania: Circle of the Moon and when I 
   need a break from them I'll be playing F-Zero.
   I most likely won't have a lot of time to work on the FAQ for the next few
   days (I've also just bought 6 games, 5 of which (3 Dreamcast, 2 n64) were
   really cheap, so I've got a lot to play at the moment. You never know, I 
   may find the strength to put down my GBA for a while and work on the FAQ
   more. 
   Who knows?

•  I really can't think of anything else to add to the FAQ at this time... If
   you have any ideas please by all means email me.
   Unless I think of more stuff to add the FAQ is basically complete, and only
   minor changes and additions will occur in the future.... (this is *NOT* the
   last update/final version).

•  Damn my insomnia.... I go to bed at 10:00pm, get to sleep sometime after
   2:30am >_< 
   I'm tired, only one day of school left this week, and the GBA comes out 
   tomorrow, hopefully I won't be so tired I can't pull and all nighter on 
   Friday and play nothing but GBA.

•  I've got my GBA, which is AWESOME. I'm enjoying it a ton, but I'll have 
   plenty of time to have a break from it and work on the FAQ I think.... 
   *picks up GBA with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 in it....*
   *is tempted*
   *puts it back down*

   I shall be fine, I'll put in a bit of time on the FAQ at least, though I 
   don't have much more to ad to the FAQ at the moment.


•  *puts down GBA* I think my next FAQ will be Maps for Diddy Kong Racing, not
   sure if I'll do it yet though. I really like making maps. I think I'll go
   start it now actually.

•  The first version of my Diddy Kong Racing FAQ is now up on GameFAQs, and I
   am about to submit Version 0.6 of this FAQ.
   Don't expect too many more updates of this FAQ, and when I do update it 
   you will probably only see minor changes. Perhaps I'll move the Version 
   history section further down the FAQ?

•  I think I will do maps for each of the levels....
   They take forever to make though, so don't _expect_ maps for every level in
   the next update.
   I was away from school today, due to dizzyness and a headache, which I 
   still have (6:01pm)..so bleah!
   If I am feeling better I'll get to work on a map or two tonight.

•  I'm also thinking of putting in a stunt section, with how to perform them,
   difficulty to pull off, points able to be scored and perhaps a few other 
   categories.


•  Decided that I WILL make a game data setion, with some info on the game
   (relsaes date, game pak size etc).

•  I'm going to put in a little Menu section, with all of the stuff from the 
   different menus listed.

•  Moved document from notepad to MS Word (probably not permanent), expect
   more maps and a lot more work on the stunt section in the next update or
   two.

•  Moved document over to MetaPad (thanks GalFord)... hehe, I told you the 
   last move was probably not permanent ^_^


•  GameBoy Advance comes out here in 3 days, and my Birthday is on the 25th 
   (good timing), I'm gonna pick one up on launch, and a few games (probably
   Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, Castlevania and F-Zero for starters).
   I might be too caught up playing it to really work on the guide, so just a
   warning. But you never know, I may be able to put it down for a few hours
   to work on this. Only time will tell I guess.

•  I put in a lot more work on the FAQ, just incase I don't have any time 
   *cough* GBA *cough* to work on it for the next few days or so......this 
   version (0.4) is just about ready to be submitted now.

•  I'm just about to submit version 0.4 of the FAQ... Much more stuff to come
   next update.

   of creating a tricks section.

•  Finished up two assignments for school, still have another two to go but
   they aren't due in for a while, so I can breathe easy (for the moment) and
   put a fair amount of time into the FAQ over the next few days.

•  I'm thinking about making maps for each course...
   still not sure if I will, fell free to email me to say "YES, make the maps"
   or "No don't bother"... They may not turn out too brilliant, but hey, I 
   might give it a go.

Too see the list of reader reviews for Wave Race 64 on GameFAQs go here:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/n64/review/22525.html



Here's a copy of my review of Wave Race that has been submitted to GameFAQs:



Wave Race is the 2nd game I ever saw in motion for the N64 (Super Mario 64 
was first). I can still remember the day I stumbled into a shop and saw a 
pre release copy of the game running the intro sequence. It was a Saturday,
and I had just popped in to the video games department of my favourite store
to have my usual look at the games, as I neared the game shelf to have a look
I heard some music blasting out of a TV with 3 people staring up at the
screen (I was behind the TV) so I walked over to have a look at what was on 
the TV that was so interesting when I stuck my head around the side of the TV
and saw the rippling blue waves as the two jet ski riders zoomed past I but 
uttered a single word, ****! 

The people around were not quite happy to hear such a term used and gave me
some dirty looks (though the people staring at the TV didn't seem to mind, 
probably because they were thinking the same thing too.). It was then that I
realised that I HAD to own an N64 and Wave Race. 

Thinking back, I suppose judging a game by it's graphics and deciding to buy
it along with it's console wasn't extremely wise, but it turned out to be
very well worth my money indeed


Gameplay 

Wave Race plays like a dream. At first it will take some time getting used
to (especially turning exactly the way that you want to), but after a week or
two you will be controlling your Jet Ski like a pro. Wave Race is (as the 
name would suggest) mainly about racing, there are 3 difficulties for you to
race in Championship mode (the main mode): 
*Normal 
*Hard 
and 
*Expert 
You start off only able to race Normal, but once you beat the 6 races on 
Normal you unlock Hard, when you beat the 7 races on Hard you get Expert. 
The other modes of play are: Time Trial, 2 Player and Stunt Mode 
(self-explanatory). 

The courses, are just a circuit, you do 3 laps, and try to finish 1st, they
are well designed, and all are very unique. 

The Water Physics are AMAZING, the water ripples and moves very realistically
, and you craft reacts to the water with extreme accuracy. Nintendo must have
spent months, even years working on the amazing water physics seen in Wave 
Race, as they are truly mind blowingly amazing in both their accuracy and 
detail. After recently seeing the Wave Race: Blue Storm movies (for the 
GameCube) I once again poo'd my pants when I saw how amazing the water 
physics were. In Blue Storm however the water reacts to your craft as well 
as your craft reacting to the water (Blue Storm is actually running on a much
improved Wave Race 64 engine believe it or not). 

In summary, with the amazing graphics, fantastic water physics, well put 
together courses, and that Nintendo gameplay, Wave Race 64 really plays like
a wet (SEA WATER DAMMIT!) dream. 
10/10 

Graphics 

Hmmmmmmm, let me think, will Amazing do? Nah! Excellent? Nah! Fabulous? Nah!
Awesome? Nah! Mind blowing! Not quite. Fantastic? Getting warmer. FAN ****ING
TASTIC? Well, that will have to do, because I can't really think of anything
better to describe it. For it's time (1996) Wave Race 64 had brilliant and 
never before seen pant wetting quality graphics. Looking back on it, in the 
year 2001 it still has impressive graphics, and that is really saying 
something! 
The water looks GREAT, it ripples, foams excellently and reflects (not 
brilliantly, but it's still purdy to look at). The water is has a variety of
looks, from good old sky blue perfect beach water, to fanta water :P as seen
in Sunset bay (at dusk, the sun lights the sky up orange, and the water too)
, to reflective and fogged over lake water, icy cold deep blue water to grey
water in the rain. 
The actual characters have a lowish poly count (but it was great for the 
time), but who cares? You'll spend most of the time looking at the water :P 

To put it simply, even 6 years after it came out Wave Race 64 looks amazing,
and that really says a LOT. 

10/10 

Sound 

Wave Rave 64 does very well in the sound department. The music is great, and
will have you humming along to the variety of relaxing, and soothing tracks 
as you race away, play around practicing in dolphin park, or just listen to 
the music in the music test area. Top notch music and a good amount of it 
too. 

The actual sound effects in Wave Race are pretty good, from the roar of the 
jet ski, to the swwhhhh! of the craft gliding over the water, to the
collisions that will send your rider flying. 

The sound effects suffice, and the Music is awesome, to this day the music 
in Wave Race remains as some of my favourite music in any game. 

9/10 

Multiplayer 

Wave Race has a solid multiplayer mode, only 2 players can race against each
 other, but this isn't a HUGE hassle. It is fun and good for an hour or two 
(but still, nothing compared to Goldeneye). The two player mode brings in 
some fog, but it's not too bad, and really just looks like ocean mist ;). 
Wave Race is still played a fair amount when I am at gaming parties because 
of the basic nature of the game, that being that it's easy to just pick up 
and play. 

Good quality multiplayer for two people that remains fun for hours, but 
nothing ground breaking. 
8/10 

Replayability 

I must admit that Wave Race is not my most played N64 game (out of over 30),
but I do give it a good bash usually about once every month, for a few days.
I usually have a quick whirl in dolphin park, then have a few races, and 
maybe a quick go of trick attack. So, Wave Race isn't totally sitting around
collecting dust, but I don't play it religiously either. 
8/10 

Difficulty 

I like a game that I can pick up and be used to within a week, and have 
mastered within under a month. Wave race is fairly much ideal for me. I got 
a good hang of the game and was winning 3 consecutive races or so within 
about a week, and by the end of a month I had mastered the game, and could 
usually get through Normal mode coming 1st or 2nd in 90% of the races. 

I have lost my touch a bit all these years later, but after an hour of 
playing most of it comes back to me. 

Pros 

*Great graphics 
*Excellent music 
*Unbelievable water physics 
*Very fun to play 
*Still great 6 years down the track 

Cons 

*Wave Race: Blue Storm for GameCube won't be out for a good 6 months or 
more :P 

Buy/rent 

Buy. I LOVE Wave Race, and I am sure everyone else will too. It is an 
awesome game overall and should be in every N64 gamer's collection. 

Overall 

Wave Race 64 was one of the n64's first, and still remains as one of its 
greatest games. Well worth the purchase, I've put countless hours into this
little grey cartridge, and loved every minute. 
Nintendo really know how to make games, and Wave Race 64 is a prime example 
of this. 
This is 100% top notch gaming, it's one of those games that not every body 
owns, but should. 


Overall 9.2/10 (rounded to 9 for GameFAQs)

CHAMPIONSHIP         
=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+

This is where you select what difficulty you would like to race
in the championship mode (the main part of the game).
 _  ______
(_) NORMAL
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯
Playable straight away, this is the easiest mode to beat.
Beat Normal to unlock Hard. This is very easy to conquer.
 _  ____
(_) HARD
    ¯¯¯¯ 
This mode is playable after having beaten Normal mode. Normal is faily
simple to beat, and won't take too many attempts
 _  ______
(_) EXPERT
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯ 
The hardest difficulty to race in the game, Expert is playable once 
Normal, and then Hard have been completed. The opponents are fast and make few 
mistakes.
 _  _______
(_) REVERSE
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 
Your reward for completing Normal, Hard and Expert. The opponet AI 
is that of Expert mode. In Revesre mode, you race the courses backwards(duh).

TIME TRIALS          
=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+

Time trial, as the name suggests is a mode where you race against the clock 
to get the best possible time on all of the courses besides dolphin park.
The courses you can race are: Sunny Beach, Sunset Bay, Drake Lake, Marine 
Fortress, Port Blue, Twilight City*, Glacier Coast* and Souther island.

* = need to be unlocked first.

If you think you're fairly fast why not enter the fast times section of this
FAQ? For details see the Fat Times section of this FAQ.


=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+
STUNT MODE           
=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+

In Stunt mode you race one lap of any of the courses (including dolphin park).
There are rings to go through, and each ring you go through gives you 50 
points.
If you go through rings consecutively the points for each ring go up by 50, 
e.g. ring 1 = 50 points, ring 2 = 100 points, ring 3 = 150 points. You also 
are racing against the clock, and to extend your time you must go through 
checkpoints set throughout the course. There are extra ramps for air tricks 
laid out all over the course as well. The idea of stunt mode is to accumulate
as many points as you can in one lap. 

note: For a tip on getting heaps of points in stunt mode see the 
Tips/tricks/secrtes section of this FAQ.

    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 
(note, this can only be done to modes you have beaten, e.g. beat
normal mode in championship and you can change it's conditions and so on)
Here you can change the "conditions" of the water on Normal, Hard and Expert
mode, as well as the number of misses allowed, and the number of laps to be 
raced.
You can choose "Defaults" to reset these options back to the way they were.

Wave Conditions - Default, Calm, Wild, Random.

    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Here you can erase specific data.
You can erase all times for each of the courses (one by one) so for example if
you wanted to erase ONLY your times on Port Blue, then you can erase ONLY your
times on Port Blue. 
You can also erase scores for each course, from Stunt Mode the same way (one

 _  _____________
(_) Save and Load
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Here you can copy and erase save files. You can copy files from N64 to 
Controller pak, and from controller pak to N64 Game Pak. So if your friend 
hasn't unlocked everything in Wave Race (like Reverse courses you can give 
them your file, by taking it over on a memory pak, and upload it to their game
cart).
You can erase files from both the Game pak, and memory pak.

NOTE: The top speeds are in km/h because I have the PAL version of the game, 
and speed is measured in km/h.
_________
R. Hayami
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

•  Top Speed with default settings: 120 km/h

•  From my experience I'd say Hayami handles a bit better than Stewart.

•  Hayami is about on par, if not a tad better at stunts than Stewart.

•  Costume one (default): Green and blue are the choices in colour for 
   Hayami's clothes.

   The Jet Ski is mainly blues, with a bit of red. The Jet Ski sports the
   number "2".

•  Costume two (special): Red and yellow (fire colours >:P) are the choice in
   colours for costume number two of Hayami.

   The Jet Ski's blues are replaced with reds, and it's red replaced with 
   blue. Number 3 this time.

•  THE VERDICT: Hayami is all around average. Use M. Jeter! :P 

__________
A. Stewart
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

•  Top Speed with default settings: 106 km/h

•  Stewart turns pretty ordinary, and I'd say she had bad to average handling.

•  Stewart is about average at stunts..... don't expect to be 
   double-backflipping with her.

•  Costume one (default): *smack* bad Nintendo! *smack* again! Just because 
   Stewart is female doesn't mean she _has_ to be in pink *smack* ah well.
   Even the Jet Ski is pink, but at least it has some yellow there too.
   Jet Ski is Numbered with 4.

•  Costume two (special): Better. Blue clothes are much better.
   The Jet Ski though goes from pink and yellow, to pink and purple.
   8 is the number slapped onto the Jet Ski this time.

•  THE VERDICT: Use M. Jeter :P
________
M. Jeter
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

•  Top Speed with default settings: 120 km/h

•  Jeter handles very well.

•  Jeter is a stunt pro, and can easily do a double backflip of most ramps 
   without any trouble.

•  Costume one (default): Mostly blue, and a tiny bit of red is what you'll 
   see Good 'ol Jeter wearing, oh and black legs (well ski suit legs ;)
   The jet ski is blue mostly, with some redy-browns on it too.
   Fittingly, number 1 is the Jet Skit number.   

•  Costume two (special): The looks a hell of a lot like Mariner's first 
   costume. Green and yellow.
   The second Jet Ski "costume" is number 7.

•  THE VERDICT: M. Jeter is the person to use, he has a nice top speed, knows
   his stunts like no other, turns great and is an overall great package.
__________
D. Mariner
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

•  Top Speed with default settings: 120 km/h

•  Mariner turns about the same as Stewrt (bad to average). 

•  Mariner is surely the worst of the riders when it comes to stunts....
   Don't even think about it.
 
•  Costume one (default): As with Jeter's second costume, you'll be wearing 
   green and yellow mostly.
   Jet ski matches your colours, but adds in a bit of blue.
   Number 22....

•  Costume two (special): Eww! Greyishy-green and ugly brown. Has this man no
   taste in clothes???
   The Jet Ski is a tad more respectable though, dark red, and white.
   Number 95.... quite a way from the rest of them...

•  THE VERDICT: Do_not_ever_use_D. Mariner. NEVER! Unless you want a severe 
   handicap in both turning and pulling off stunts.

To start off, a little info on the scale. There are 12 different setting for
Handling, Engine and Grip.

Here's a diagram of the three different scales, with the adjustment bar in the
middle of them (like the "Normal" setting).

--|HANDLING|--

Light                           Heavy

Now, I'm sure you're all wondering what the hell the three setting mean, and 
more importantly, what they effect when moved around from the default 
position.

Allow me to explain.

The one you most likely care about, is the one that effects SPEED and 
ACCELERATION. That happens to be "ENGINE"...

______
ENGINE
¯¯¯¯¯¯
Tweaking around with the Engine scale will tinker with your maximum speed and
also your acceleration.

If you are wondering, Dash and Top End 
mean this:

Dash - The engine is good for quick starts, but doesn't get as fast
Top End - You'll take more time to reach top speed, but your top speed will be
better than usual.

________
HANDLING
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Lighten up your handling and you'll loose a tiny amount off your top speed, 
and be able to jump a tiny, tiny bit higher.

If you set your handling to Heavy you'll gain some top speed, but not be able
to jump quite so high.

____
GRIP
¯¯¯¯
Tightening your grip will result in slightly better turning, but will lower
your top speed.

Loosening your grip will result in looser turning, but you'll gain a tiny bit
on your top speed.

In this section I will explain how to perorm each stunt, and the points you 
can get for doing them. I'm only listing stunts _I_ have performed. I have 
heard that a triple flip can be performed somewhere, but I've never done it, 
so I'm not gonna list it. 

Note: It is very hard to get an accurate number for the points awarded for
doing certain stunts, so please don't kill me if some of them are a little 
off.

Acrobatic Stunts

_________
Handstand - 310+ points
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Let off the accelerator, move the control stick down then up and
hold. You can keep the hand stand for as long as you want by holding it 
forward/up. To stop the hand stand move the control down from the 
upwards position for a second.


________________
Ride standing up - 135+ points
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Let off the accelerator, move the control stick 
counter-clockwise starting from up, and back to up. To continue riding s
tanding on the base of the handlebar keep holding up on the control stick. To
stop riding let the control stick return to it's normal position.


________________________________________________
Ride standing up then backfip to normal position - 540+ points 
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Let off the accelerator, move
the control stick counter-clockwise starting from up, and back to up. To
continue riding standing on the base of the handlebar keep holding up on the 
control stick.
To backflip back to a normal position pull down on the control stick when 
standing on the handlebar.


______
Rotate - 550+ points
¯¯¯¯¯¯
Let off the accelerator and then rotate the control stick clockwise from 
up to up, same as "ride standing up". Your rider should "rotate" around the
handlebar.


______________
Ride backwards - 550+ points
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Once again, let off the accelerator then rotate the control stick clockwise 
from up to up, but once the rider gets half way, move and hold the control
stick down. You will be able to ride backwards. To stop riding backwards let
the control stick return to it's normal position.

________
BackFlip - 1100+ points
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Hold forward on the control stick while you approach a ramp, once you hit the
ramp, and just before you are about to launch from it pull the control stick 
from the up position down, and hold it.


_______________
Double BackFlip - 2200+ points
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This is best done with M. Jeter, and the larger the ramp 
size, the better. It is performed the same way as the standard flip, only you
hold down for longer so that you will flip backwards twice, rather that once.


_________________
Sideways BackFlip - 1400+ points
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This is performed much like the standard BackFlip, just 
that instead of approaching the ramp from straight on and then continuing on
straigh to perform the stunt, you try to turn to the side while riding up the
ramp and then flip...it's kind of hard for my to explain how to do this trick
in words, but I hope you get the idea. To put it simply, just the same as a 
standard BackFlip, but when on the ramp you try to turn 90 degrees to the left
or right and then flip.


___________
Barrel Roll - 1400+ points
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
For a right barrel roll; Approach a ramp, and as you hit it move 
the control stick left then just as you launch from it move the control stick 
right and hold.

For a left barrel roll; Approach a ramp, and as you hit it move the control 
stick right then just as you launch from it move the control stick left and
hold.


______________
Submarine Dive - 500+ points
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Ride towards a ramp, hit it and then hold forward on the control
stick, this should point the nose of the Jet Ski downwards and when you hit
the water you should be totally submerged for a few seconds (depending on how
long you keep holding forward).

___________________________
Submarine dive without ramp - 500+ points
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
While riding hold forward on the control stick as 
you hit a wave,  you should do a submarine dive for a few seconds.


_________
"Wheelie" - 0 - 100+ points
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Hold down/back on the control stick as you ride for a few seconds, 
your Jet Ski should tip backwards and cause you to do a "Jet Ski Wheelie".
And alternate way of doing this is moving the control stick up and down 
a few times. This method can get you points, whereas the first only looks 
cool ;)


_________________________
Backflip off small waves! - 1100+ points
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
To perform this kewel trick approach a wave and as
you hit it press down then up then down and hold (really fast). You should be 
able to backflip easily (especially with M. Jeter).

=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+
Dolphin Park         
=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+

The Game's warm-up course. Enclosed in a circular area. There are two ramps
in the middle of to course, some jettey's to ride under (while avoiding the 
support bars), a kidney shaped area of land and a mini tunnel to go under.
This is great for practicing your basic skills such as tricks, cornering, 
dodging obstacles and passing throught small spaces. This is stricly a 
practice course and cannot be raced on.





=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+
Sunny Beach          
=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+

The first race course, it's very basic. Long/sharp oval shaped, sharp turns 
at each end. No obstacles. Should be able to win easy, just make sure you 
get the speed boost at the start of the race.





=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+
Sunset Bay           
=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+

Also know by some (myself included) as "Fanta Water" Bay.....(play it and 
you'll see why). L shaped circuit, with one jump, farily easy, waves can be
a bit choppy, get infront at the start with a rocket start, and just keep 
the lead (shouldn't be too hard).





=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+
Drake lake           
=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+

Square-ish course, rounded edges. Very calm (it is a lake after all). Heavy
fog to begin with, clears away 1/2 of the way through the race. Has some 
wood sticking up from the water in one area and some weed 
(which will slow you down). Again, a fairly easy race to win, just get 
infront at the start, and keep your position.





=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+
Marine Fortress      
=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+

Marine Fortress is set during a storm, and has VERY CHOPPY water. There are 
some crates floating around that you'll have to aviod. This can be a bit of
a pain, as you may hit a HUGE wave right when you want to turn, and instead
go flying into the air and miss the next checkpoint because you were in the
air when you wanted to be turning. If you can master the bumpy waves, this
course isn't terribly hard.





=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+
Port Blue           
=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+

Another L shaped course, this time a "fatter" L (I hope you understand 
what I mean....). Slightly chopper water. One of the easier courses, in my 
opinion at least. There is an area in which you can choose 2 different 
ways to go, where the track brances off and then re joins a little further
down the line. One of the ways is the "standard way to go", it's slower than
the shortcut, but much easier to navigate than the 2nd way which is a very
narrow tunnel, with a few sharp turns. I suggest mastering the 2nd route, 
because it is definetly the way to go if you want to win.





=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+
Twilight City        
=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+

Set at night, this feels a little like the Las Vegas of the Wave Race tracks, 
as it has lots of purdy bright lights....
It's the first of two "extra" courses, that aren't accessable at the begining 
of the game.
Not too hard to win here either, there is an area in the track that has two
ways to go, around, or over a jump. Going over the jump is by far the best
way to go, and is much faster than going around. That's pretty much all the
advice I can give for this course.





=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+
Glacier Coast        
=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+

The 2nd "extra" course. A lot of obstacles to run into right when you are 
about to win the race, including huge icebergs that can also act as ramps, 
narrow gaps to squeeze through and floating balls of ice that will explode 
when you hit them, but also send you flying from your craft.This race is 
pretty easy to win, provided you have a perfect run (which isn't exactly easy)
but can be done with practice.
My tips for Glacier Coast, if you can avoid all obstacles, and make it around
all of the markers you will be set for a fairly easy win. As they say, 
practice makes perfect.





=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+
Southern Island      
=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+=-+

Ok, there's not *too* much to be said about this course, other than the fact
that the water level decreases each lap. On the first lap you will come to a
large ramp, go over it, and hold down on the control stick, thid will cause
you to "submarine" underwater, and you should be able to make it under the
jetty (providing you have enough speed). On the second and third laps go 
around the ramp, and straight under the jetty (the water level will have
dropped by now, so you will be able to just ride straight under.

_______________________________________
START RACE INSTANTLY WITH MAXIMUM POWER
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 
•  To do this very handy trick, watch as the lights at the start of the race 
   change, and listen as the commentator say "3", "2", "1" "GO!". To time this 
   right, simply hit the accelerate button right as the light goes green/the 
   commentator says "GO!". This usually will get you to the front of the pack, 
   and you will have instant full power (rather than having to clear 5 markers 
   in a row). Very handy indeed, and a great way of winning races.

_______________________
RECOVER FROM FALLS FAST
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 
•  Whenever you fall from your craft due to a collision with something, or 
   someone (or oversteering) tap the A button as fast as you can and your 
   rider will get back up from the fall MUCH faster.
   This is a nifty little trick, that can mean the difference from winning and 
   loosing.

__________________________
EXRTA POINTS IN STUNT MODE
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 
•  In Stunt Mode to get extra point for every trick you do, pull off a trick
   for example a backflip, and just as you hit the water from landing pause 
   the game, and the commentator will say something about the trick, unpause 
   and continue this process for the duration of the stunt mode. At the end of
   the race you should end up with many more points than you would have gotten
   just tricking the normal way. 

_____________________
BACKFLIP OFF ANY WAVE
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 
•  When racing, just as you hit a wave hit Down, Up, and hold down again (very
   fast), this should cause you to do a backflip off any wave you do it on. 
   Very handy for impressing your friends, and getting extra points ^_^

______________
COSTUME CHANGE
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 
•  On the rider/craft select screen hold up on the control stick and you will 
   be given a second costume for your rider plus a new paint job on your Jet 
   Ski.

_______________
REVERSE COURSES
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 
•  Complete the game on Expert mode to receive mirror versions of the tracks.

Thanks to Jeff "CjayC" Veasey for making the wonderful www.GameFAQs.com and
for putting this average FAQ up :D

Thanks to www.CheatCodes.com for also hosting this FAQ.

Thanks to http://www.nintendocc.com for some of the GameShark codes.

Thanks to Interact for some of the GameShark codes.


Thanks to Nintendo for creating this wonderful, wonderful game.


Thanks to mum and dad for making me.


*mentions NovaStorm, Jarred and ShadowHunter for some reason......* Hi guys!

ShadowHunter also wanted me to say that he got my Wave Race file deleted by
getting me to do the "lop sided cart trick", and the moral of that story is
DON'T DO THE "LOP SIDED CART TRICK" TO WAVE RACE!!!
Which is true by the way, it also happened to my 1080 Snowboarding game, so
kiddies, don't try that at home unless you don't mind your file being 
erased...

THANKS TO YOU FOR READING!!!

That's all I can think of for now...

Put simply: THIS FAQ MAY ONLY APPEAR ON www.GameFAQs.com and 
www.CheatCodes.com DO YOU UNDERSTAND?
If I want my FAQ on your website, I will approach you...ok? Gooooood....

*note: I just received my first spam along the lines of "Can we put your FAQ
on our web site, along with any others you make for GameFAQs?". I obviously 
replied with a No! Now, this is your warning if I get anymore automated 
spam like that I will be very abusive in my responce. Got it? This is your 
warning, and my justification. I will refer back to this if need be.

Here's an example of what my maps will look like when I've made them all...

I hope that these maps will be of some use.

 
Well, that sums this version of my very first FAQ.... I guess there's nothing
more to say really.... I hope you enjoyed reading it, and I hope that it was
in some way, some kind of help to you.
I'll be working on an update as of the minute I submit this ;), I just have
to knock off all my damn schoolwork that just keeps getting piled on top of
me, then I can work on this until me heart is content. (most of it is delt
with now, YAY!) 

*goes off to watch more movies of Wave Race: Blue Storm for the GameCube*

Even though it may not be THE BEST GameCube title in the first few months of
it's realease, I am anticipating it the most out of any other game (equally
as much as StarWars Rogue Squdron 2: Rogue Leader). Wave Race: Blue Storm,
in my opinion will definetly justify buying a GameCube, so if you aren't 
going to buy one (or haven't already if you read this buy the time the 
GameCube is out), I suggest getting one, not just for Wave Race: Blue Storm
but, certainly so you can play it, along with all of the other great GameCube
games to come.

Till next update......BYE and THANKS FOR READING!

One last thing, because it's purdy looking, here's my ascii art version of
the GameCube logo (it helps to defocus your eyes a bit too):
