Prior to these update, I have receiving e-mails regarding the game's
topless code. For the full explanation about the code, please check
the Q & A section under the last section of the FAQ. The code DOES
NOT work as based on my testing. However, a trick posted by people at
the GameFAQs message boards does works.

Thanks to a few readers, I have managed to corrected and expanded some
of the minor facets that I have overlooked.

As I am currently serving the Army, I will not have much time in reply
e-mails. By the way, please do not sent e-mails to my old e-mail a/c
as I no longer read e-mails from there. Please wait for at least 3
days for my reply. If you need help urgently, consult other FAQ
writers for this game. The message boards at GameFAQs is also a ideal
source of help.

                             Game Overview

This beach volleyball simulation game (I will not classified as a
sports game...) features those lovely chicks from Dead of Alive Series.
The game involves from Zack, the winner of the DOA 3 Tournament who
subsequently strikes lottery at the casino and bought over an island.
The name was named after him. Up to something mischief, he invites ONLY
female competitors from DOA series for the tournment, DOA 4. You will
be choosing to play as one of 8 gals for 14 day vacation in Zack's

                            Zack's Island

Zack Island consists of several places of interest and they are:-

  It's cool under the trees and it's green as far as the eye can see.
  It's a paradise! There's even a casino!
  The DJ has the place jumpin' Keep those request coming!
  What a cool little island. Well they say: When in Rome...
  Buy swimsuits here. Check back daily!
  Some nice, small items. Lots of variety
  All those sails are quite a sight
  A nice out-of-the-way spot. Wonder what's here
  A quite beach for Zack's private use
  A stall that would opens on fourth day of a girl's vacation.

3.1 - Basis
The gameplay is relatively simple as you just need to your time on the
island by playing beach volleyball, practice your hopping at the
poolside, purchases accessories and stuff from shops and interact with
the girls that stays on the island.

3.2 - Options Menu
Before you start the game, you can go to the Options where you get to
switch your controls between digital and analog. Analog controls will
cause the power of the character's spike, serve or jump based on how
hard you have pressed the button. Digital allows you to have a 4-
buttons control with Attack (hard), Attack (soft) and Receive (hard)
or Receive (soft). In my opinion, digital controller is easier as you
can control the hard/soft of the controls that you want. You can view
the federal warning and age settings under the Options menu.

3.3 - Starting the Game
Every character has her own likes and dislikes. Winning games help to
build teamwork and the relationship between the two. Whoever you choose
as your character, they will meet up with Lisa on the poolside who
offers to take you on a tour around the island. Of course, you are
playing as Lisa, you will meet up with Tina instead. On the first play,
you will be guided along for the first day. However if you have
completed the 14-day vacation with at least 1 character, you will be
given the option to skip the tour. However, it will bring down your
affection with Lisa. You start the game with 10,000 Zack Dollars or
your previous remaining amount from the character's previous vacation.
The reason why it is Lisa inviting your character for the tourney is
because she is co-host of Zack's Island & Zack's sister!

3.4 - Replaying a vacation
If you are using the same saved file but using another character, you
will most likely find items that you have previously given the
character as gifts (provided that she did not discard them...).
Unfortunately, they cannot be re-sent as presents $_$:)

  hardness and softness of attack and receive commands.
- Typically, it is easier than analog as you can determine the power
  of the spikes/serves, which are crucial in winning beach volleyball
- Digital controls will apply only to gameplay of the beach volleyball
  & the hopping game.

The default settings for the digital controls are:
(A) Button - Attack Hard
(B) Button - Receive Hard
(Y) Button - Attack Soft
(X) Button - Receive Soft

Winning hopping game at the poolside or winning a beach volleyball
game nabs you Zack dollars, the currency used on the island. You can
also choose to gamble these money at Casino when your character gets
back to the casino at night.

D A Y    A C T I V I T I E S

A single day on Zack Island is practically divided into 4 "parts" - 
morning, daytime, evening and night time. You can only doing the
following events during the day (morning, daytime & evening):-

A day at Zack Island can be divided into 4 "parts" as the following:
1) Morning - everything accessible* except for Bass Island & Casino
2) Daytime - everything accessible* except for Casino
3) Evening - everything accessible* except for Bass Island & Casino
4) Night time - you can only access the Casino.

* Jack of All Trades only opens from 4th day of your vacation.

  P o o l s i d e

  Take a rest at the poolside and play the hopping mini-game. You can
  also view your items and have a rest (gravure system mode) at the
  pool. Note that when you are not moving D-Pad or left thumbstick, you
  will enter into the gravure mode while your character is lying on the
  bench chair.

  Entering the poolside will give you the following options:

  Leave the poolside : Leave the pool
  Take a rest*       : Enter into pool gravure mode system
  Play hopping game* : Play the mini game
  View items         : View your items, accessories, items & presents
  Quit the game      : Exit "Zack's Island Mode"

  I supposed most of the options are straight forward except for the
  options mark in asterisk. Select either one of these commands will
  allows you to move past a "part" of a day. Gravure mode will differ
  depends on the "part" of the day.

  I have also discovered that the Gravure movie will change if you
  change your character's costume or equipped the character's favorite
  item. Please refer to gravure mode listing under each individual
  character's profile. Gravure movie shown are also based on the days.
  For example for Hitomi, there are 2 gravure movies for daytime. You
  will get the gravure movie of her sitting by poolside on odd days
  while a gravure movie of her lying on the poolside on even days.

  ------------      Note: The digital controls can be applied for this
  Hopping Game            mini-game.
  The mini-game objective is relatively simply. You just need to move
  your character from one side of the pool to other by jumping on the
  floating boards. Once you fall into the pool, you will be given the
  option to retry or quit the mini-game.

  For analog controls,
  Hopping is basically affected by pressure sensitivity of the (A)
  button. Your character will hop further if you hit the (A) button
  harder. You can calibrate the pressure before beginning of any hopping
  mini-game game. Hit the start button to proceed. You can make use of
  digital controls by hit (A) as hard button and (B) as soft button.

  The faster you get to other side of the pool, the higher your score
  will be. All points earned on Zack's Island will be converted to Zack
  Dollars. In between, you will be gaining Nice points for making nifty
  steps by chaining your jumps smoothly. Nice points will be accumulated
  during hopping. However if you fall into the pool, the nice points
  earned will be not be forfeited i.e. you will not receive any Zack
  dollars. You can also zoom in while playing the mini-game.

  The hopping game can generates a steady source of income and it also
  allows you to be familiarised with the analog controls. It is ideal
  for practicing with the analog controls.

  S h o p s 
  I supposed I don't need to explain too much as Lisa will explain for
  you when you are playing the game for the first time. There are a
  total of three shops - Sports Shop, Accessory Shop and Zack of All
  Trades. The third shop will only open from the 4th day of the 
  character's vacation.

  The items will be changed between days. So make sure you check them
  out every time. However, there are a few points to take note of:

  . Items such as food (milk, lobster, crabs, etc) & flowers (hibiscus,
    roses, etc) will withered or go stale when you have keep them for
    more than half a day. Once withered/spoilt, they will be discarded

  . Accessories are the only items that can be worn. Exceptions
    includes the character's favorite item. For example, Kasumi's
    favorite item allow you to change her hairstyle to braids or

  . Swimsuits sold in the Sports Shops are ONLY specific to the
    character's theme. For example, you will find flowers-theme
    swimsuits when you are playing as Kasumi and birds-theme swimsuits
    when you are playing as Leifang.

  . In order to other theme swimsuits is by offering presents to the
    other girls so that they will sent you a return gift when you
    return back to the hotel at night. You can also play as the other
    character and give gifts to your character, which is the faster

  . Zack will give you 3 swimsuits for the character when they return
    to the hotel after winning beach volleyball. You can expect to
    receive a gift from Zack every night. It seems that changing to new
    swimsuits helps you to get new swimsuit earlier.

  . Hit (X) button before attempting to purchase will allow you to
    know whether the item is in your inventory. This hint is pretty
    useful when you attempting to complete the swimsuit collection for
    that particular character. You can also receive your character's
    swimsuit from other characters as gift.

  B e a c h e s  /  J u n g l e
  There are a lot of things while on the isolated regions of the island.
  You can play beach volleyball when you have a partner and there are
  2 characters within that area.

  When there is nobody within that area, you will automatically proceed
  to the gravure mode for your character. Hit Start or (A) button to
  exit. The time will passes for a "part".

  If you are alone, there are 1 or 2 companions on the area, you will
  be given the option of:- 1) forming a partnership and 2) giving the
  girl a present.

  There is some art in forming partnerships and giving gifts. Before
  forming a partnership, you must be on good terms with the character.
  The relationship can be enhanced by giving likeable gifts to the
  character. If you give a wrong item, it will bring down the mood
  between the 2 characters. Winning volleyball games help to build
  friendship. For the list of likeable objects, please refer to the
  Characters Section for more details. Doing a gift presentation or
  forming partnership (fail or succeed) will result you to spend a 
  "part" of the day.

  If you have a partner and there are 2 characters found in that area,
  you will be given an additional option of having a volleyball game.
  You can pause the game by hit the Start button. If you choose to quit
  the game, it will be counted as you lose the beach volleyball game.

  Beach Volleyball
  The volleyball game is relatively simple as it involves moving the
  character around the field and using 2 buttons based on how hard you
  hit the button. Good serves, blocks and spikes can earn you nice
  points. The larger the point margins, the more points you will earn.

  Basic Rules:
  - Matches use the rally point system, where the serve goes to
    whoever team has mostly recently scored. The character will take
    turns in serving. The 1st player will have the chance to serve
  - The team that gets to 7 points first wins. Deuce may also be
    called when the score is 6 to 6. If the score reaches 9 - 9, the
    first team to reaches 10 points wins the game.
  - There are no sidelines and endline on the court.
  - Your team will always be on the left side of the court.

  The volleyball game consists of 5 basic phrases:

  - Hit Down or Up on the D-Pad to change position before your
    character begin to serve.
  - To perform a serve, hit (A) to toss the ball up and hit (A) again
    while the ball is in mid-air. You can make use of D-Pad to
    determine the aim point of opposition's court.

  Basically, there are 3 types of serves:-
  1) Overhand Serve - the default serve technique.
     View the instructions above. If you hit with good timing and a
     strong force, you will be award 1000 nice points for the serve.

  2) Underhand Serve
     To execute the serve, hold left on D-Pad when your character is
     facing right and hit (A) to toss and followed by (A) to hit.
     This move does not possesses much power but it is very easy to

  3) Jump Serve
     To execute the serve, hold right on D-Pad when your character is
     facing right and hit (A) to toss. While the ball reaches the peak,
     hit (A) to perform a Jump Serve. A great technique but hard to
     time. If you hit with good time and strong force - you will be
     awarded 2000 nice points for the serve.

  - Move your character towards the ball and lightly tap (B) to hit
    the incoming serve or spike.
  - To perform Two Attack,
    Hold down (B) firmly when your character are about to recieve
    the ball. For your character to perform Two Attack, hold down (B)
    when your partner receives the ball.

  - Short Toss: Tap (B) as your teammate receives the ball
  - Long Toss: Press (B) firmly as your teammate receives the ball.
  - You can determine the direction by pressing Up or Down on the
    D-Pad. If you lightly tap (B) when your teammate is at the
    backcourt, you can give her a quick toss for a back attack.

  - Position your character with D-Pad and while the ball is in
    mid-air, hit (A) to jump and (A) again to perform a spike. The
    power of spike depends on hard you tap (A).
  - When an opponent attempts to block, tap (A) again to perform a 
  - You will be awarded 1000 points for perform a nice spike.

  - Timing is important. Hit (A) when your character is at the net
    to perform a block.

  Controlling your teammate
  The computer will automatically control your partner, but you can
  direct them with the right thumbsticks

  Normal Shift         R/ Down from Above
  Your teammate decides whether to block or receive based on the

  Block Shift          R/ towards the net
  Your teammate will try for a block near the net.

  Receive Shift        R/ away from the net
  Your teammate will try to receive the ball in the backcourt.

  General Tips
  Generally, it is a game based on reflexes and you will need to a lot
  of practcie. I myself spend approximate 3 hours to perfect my
  volleyball skills. Remember: Practice makes perfect.

  - Make your receiving acts timely. Otherwise your character will be
    very vulnerable for incoming spike.
  - Spikes are great tools for attack but do not use them too often.
    Ocassionally, use (B) for a soft spike when your opponent is
    attempting to block you.
  - Toss the ball often and set up your teammate for a spike.
  - Plays the backcourt while your teammate is in front court and vice
  - Do not hit <- + any button when receiving a spike at the back
    court, your character will throw the ball off court most of the
  - You can force to automatic replay instantly by tapping L trigger
    after a score is regristered. This does not work on the match

  You will ONLY be awarded nice points if you are on good terms with
  your partner.

 Scoresheet and Zack Dollars Earned
 7-0    150,000 Z   Any other scores such as 7-6 and tie breaker scores
 7-1     90,000 Z   such as 9-7, 9-8, 10-9 will give 40,000 Z. If you
 7-2     80,000 Z   lose, no Zack Dollars (Z) will be earned. However,
 7-3     70,000 Z   you still get nice points that you have accumulated
 7-4     60,000 Z   in the game.
 7-5     50,000 Z

 Nice Points Listing
 Nice overhead serve                    1000 Z
 Nice block                             1000 Z
 Nice jumping serve                     2000 Z
 Knock opponent over with jump spike    1000 Z
 Score a point with jump spike          1000 Z

 Typically, these are conditions to attain nice points from your
 partner. Nice moves are indicated by shadow movement and they are
 more powerful than normal moves. To do this, you must achieve a good
 timing on your serves/blocks/spikes...

 Match points counts more than nice points. For example, a -1 score
 will result a cut of 10,000 Zack dollars or 60,000 if your score is
 6-0. You will need to score a lot of nice points to compensate for the
 loss. Thus, I do not recommend you to go for jumping serve as there is
 a high tendency of the ball hitting the net...

 If your character is getting on bad terms with your partner (due to
 losing beach volleyball matches or giving "dislike" & "hate" items
 to her), your partner's performance on the court will be weakened. The
 partner becomes more unwilling. It is like have a weak partner on
 your team. Thus maintaining a relationship is crucial in order to win
 breakout games.

 In-game or story relationships could hurt the team's partnership...
 For example, it is very hard to have a partnership between Kasumi and
 Ayane as Ayane hates Kasumi... The only solution is give "love"
 items to the partner and hope the relationship works out well. This
 will thus affect the ethusiasm rating of your character and partner.
 That is why it is marked with a "????" on the manual.

 Character Types
 Character types indicates the character's strengths. For example, a
 character with high power rating indicates that the character could
 dealt powerful spikes that could be hard for the opposition who will
 be receiving. Below is the listing:-

 Stats         What it does?
 `````         ``````````````
 Power (P)     Affects the power dealt in the character's serves/spikes
 Technique (T) Affects character's receiving of spikes and passing. 
 Defense (D)   Affects character's defense in block and receiving power
 Enthusiasm    Affects the character's mood in playing beach volleyball.

 Speciality Type A: Technique - Kasumi and Ayane
 Speciality Type B: Power     - Hitomi and Tina
 Speciality Type C: Defense   - Helena and Leifang
 Speciality Type D: Generic   - Lisa and Christie

 Not all strategies could guranttee 100% victory. It still depends on
 how you make your decisions while on the court...

 For playing as Weak Power characters 
 (Kasumi, Ayane, Helena & Leifang)
 If you are playing as Kasumi/Ayane/Leifang/Helena (weak attackers),
 it would advisible to recruit a character with high power rating for
 your offense. In this case, I would opt for Hitomi (in my opinion,
 she is easier to befriend than Tina...) Lastly, whenever you are going
 for a spike and opponent is jumping to block, use a soft spike avoid
 being blocked... Stay in the backcourt to utilize the character's
 technique ratings. (Despite categorised as a "Defense" character,
 Leifang has pretty good technique ratings...)

 For playing with Weak Technique characters
 (Hitomi and Tina)
 Hitomi and Tina will be likely to exprience in handling tough spikes
 and lobbing the ball to their partners. I would recommend you to have
 these characters stay at the front line for spiking. As for Tina, do
 not go for blocks! Get high technique characters such as Leifang,
 Ayane, Kasumi or Lisa as their partners.

 For playing with Weak Defense characters
 (Ayane and Tina)
 Defense does not count a lot if you do not go for blocks very often.
 For Ayane, keep her at the back when opponents are attacking due to
 her technique. As for Tina, stick at the front bay for catch lobs but
 do not go for blocks.

N I G H T   A C T I V I T I E S
There are only 2 places of interest: the hotel and the casino. More
details regarding the casino will be found at Section 6.

  H o t e l
  Your character will automatically returns back to the hotel. You will
  be able to view your items, your collection, watch movies (earned
  from Zack), give presents to girls (especially your partner), sleep,
  go down to the casino and gamble or quit the game.

  Sleep and Collection
  Sleep will bring you to next day of the vacation. Collection section
  allows you to view the number of swimsuits, accessories and items you
  have gained. Note that it is IMPOSSIBLE to gain all swimsuits within
  one vacation. You need to replay the Zack Island mode again by using
  the same file. The items, accessories and swimsuits collected will be
  available for usage when you play a new vacation with that particular
  character. Collection allows you to store 1 kind of that item.

  Giving Gifts
  In order to boost relationship with other 7 girls on the island, you
  will need to give them gifts. Gifts helps to build affection. If you
  get along with the other girl, they might even give you gifts! (Most
  importantly, other girl's collection of swimsuits.)

  You cannot wrap a gift at the hotel. You can only obtain gifts by
  buying and choose wrap at any one of the stores. If you are intend to
  send a gift which is perishable such as drinks, food or flowers, so
  make sure you bought these items during in the evening phrase.

  Gifts obtained from other girls and Zack will be unknown until you
  have opened the packaging. Note that you can give a gift from Zack
  to another girl! Gift boxes will give you a general idea of what the
  item will be like.

  Please take note that this is only way to built up affection with
  your partner as she no longer appears on the island. You cannot give
  video tapes, gold and silver volleyball and special swimsuits as
  gifts to other characters.

  Relationships also carries on from previous vacations. If you messed
  up the relationship with your current partner previously, most of the
  time, your partner will be unhappy thus breaking up the partnership

  Watch Videos
  There are a total of 7 video tapes, each earned from Zack. They are
  demos and creator's view about the series "Dead or Alive".

  DOA 1 Demo 1997

  You will get them as you win more beach volleyball games. Some of
  tapes can only be obtained in your subsequent vacation with that
  character. You can view the video by selecting "Watch Video" option.

  C a s i n o
  This is the place where you get to spend your money by playing
  poker, blackjack, slot machines, etc. More details will be covered
  under Section 6.


The cast of characters feature a total of 8 female characters from the
Dead or Alive series. Each girls have her own set of swimsuits, hobbies,
favorite color and interests.

- Affection and Friendship -
Personally, the character profiles includes swimsuits listing and tips
on building up affection with the character. If you need a complete
help on affection building, please refer to Robert Goode's Collectable
Checklist FAQ, which is available at GameFAQs 

It is important to build up friendship as your partner will be more
motivated to team up with your character, thus it is winning beach
volleyball. Besides this, it also allows your teammate to accept
certain swimsuits as gifts. For example, not all characters likes the
Venus swimsuit.

- Gift Giving -
Please note that if the character is angry with your character, they
will also DISCARD away the LOVED items. Thus it is not advisible to give
a loved item to an angry character. If you want, wait for a day or so
to give the gift. If you given a gift that the character has already
have in their inventory, they will return the gift if you are good terms
or discarded the item.

- Phrases -
The character's phrases are obtained once you are in good relationship
with the character (i.e. you will find music notes on the character's
icon). They will open the gift and give the phrase as their comments.

- Gravure Movies -
Every character has their own set of unique Gravure movies. Some of
the movies can be locked when you are visiting that particular place
at even or odd days. The gravure movie controls are stated in your

 Her hobbies is cooking, which sounds sensible to give her microwave
 oven, frying pan, hourglass or silver set as gifts. She loves fluffy
 toys such as bears and recipes (for her cooking). Basically, you can
 give her any kind of jewels (as suggested by her swimsuit) along
 with sky blue items. One of the easiest to coax...

 General Comment:
 Leifang is very easy to get along with. She loves all the fans that
 you can find along with Chinese related items such as chinese
 delicacies, nunchaku and orange. Apparently like Hitomi, she loves
 teddy bears. For aromatherapy, you can get her an aromapot and
 candles... She is easiest among all girls in getting good
 relationship. Generally, she loves anything that is yellow...

 General Comment:
 Christie's occupation is an assassin, thus giving her westernised
 weapons such as pistols, knives and revolvers are good choice of gifts.
 She loves guitars and driving. Her favorite food is associated with
 tomato. Quite hard to please as there are very little accessories that
 could boost relationship with her. Sunglasses and black sneakers are
 good choices of gifts.

 In my opinion, she is toughest to please due to the limitation of
 items. Her favorite color is rather close towards Hitomi's sky blue.

 Another tough character to get along with. Ayane is a ninja thus you
 should get ninja type weapons such as shurikens and kunais. She loves
 purplish objects and butterflies. Avoid giving her origamis. I have
 found out Ayane loves stylish caps and casquette...

 Just before I end this section, there are few key pointers that I
 would like to stress on about gift giving in DOAXBV.

 1. Beware of items such as drinks, flowers and food. They will go
    spoilt after a period of time (around 1/2 to 3/4 of a day). Thus
    if you are buy them for a person who is not found, I recommend you
    to buy it in evening and sent them via Hotel's "Give a Gift"
    option. Items sold at Zack of All Trades can be only be bought
    once for that particular vacation.

 2. As you give likeable accessories, the girls will wear it as you
    see them playing beach volleyball or during gurave mode. There is
    an important note regarding this.

    Make sure you did not give them the same gifts that they are
    currently wearing. I have tried once by giving Ayane a denim
    casquette which she is wearing. However, it got discarded despite
    her mood is good...
 3. It is possible to give swimsuits as gifts. However, I supposed
    most people attempt to collect all swimsuits and would rather
    spend the money on rarer swimsuits and items for gifts.

 4. On receiving a gift, make sure that you do NOT discard the item
    on that night. It will have a great impact on the giver's mood.
    If you want to discard, do it on the next day.

 5. Gifts that is not opened on 13th night will be available for
    viewing on the next vacation you begin with the same character.
    However, the chances of perishable items get spoil is relatively

 6. Get as many friends as possible so that you can finish the
    swimsuit collection fast! They will help by giving you swimsuits as
    presents... Specific swimsuits can also be obtained via this
    method. These swimsuits will be available only if you have played
    with the gift giving character. For example, I have played with
    both Hitomi and Kasumi. I got a gift from Kasumi that features
    the Gentian.

 7. Playing volleyball does not affecting your character's
    relationship with the opposition team. Instead, it will affect the
    opposition team's relationship! It does have an impact on your
    character and her partner though... Thus the best solution is to
    WIN beach volleyball games.

 8. This matter concerns Ayane and Kasumi. It seems that if you get
    along well with either one of them, you will get a negative effect
    with other due their personal hates. Well, I managed to get more
    information about relationships...

9.  The character's hobbies and activates (in-game) can also easily
    related to their preferred gifts.

10. If you intend to give a swimsuit gift to a girl, make sure that
    the girl is not your partner (you have more opportunities in giving
    gift to her) and win games against that particular girl. Give her
    the swimsuit in evening (Ayane is a gift-thrower in the morning

                             Exhibition Mode
I recommend you to play this mode first before starting to play Zack's
Island mode. This mode could give you the feel of how the beach
volleyball game is being played and it is an ideal training ground.

You will be able to choose your characters and given 10 places for
stage select. You will be able to use the acquired swimsuits from
Zack's Island Mode for these friendly games. You can have a 2-player
versus game. (Too bad, Tecmo did not add a 2 tag-mode for what it has
did for DOA 3...). When selecting your party, you find the following
options appear underneath the character. The swimsuit selectable
comprises of every single swimsuit that you obtained in each of the 3
save files.

              Partner Level      Mood
              `````````````      ````
Unwilling     Weak               Bad
Usual         Normal             Neutral
Confident     Strong             Good

These three status indicates your partner's ability. Confident will
bring in a strong teammate for the game. Under level select, you
can set your skill level and that of the computer-controlled players.
Choose from "Weak", "Normal" and "Strong". You can also set the total
points from 7, 10 and 15.

The Exhibition mode is also a useful mode for determining the
character's mood. If you observe carefully, the character icon has
some minor changes as her mood changes. Recognise the icons and use it
to help you in determine moods of your companions while in Zack
Island's Mode. You can find a detailed FAQ featuring this at GameFAQs.

That's all for the Exhibition Mode!

    Hitomi  - Hi    Leifang   - Le     Lisa      - Li    Ayane  - Ay

 6.a. Swimsuits
 Swimsuits are classified by characters. Character's swimsuit names
 carries an individual group of names. For example, Kasumi's swimsuits
 are named after flowers while Leifang's swimsuits are named after
 birds. Swimsuits can be bought at the Sports Shop at any point of day
 (morning, daytime or evening). However you can only purchase
 character-specific swimsuits. Certain swimsuits can only be obtained
 from Zack as gifts. In order to get swimsuits other than the
 character's own, you need to get it from gifts with the following 2

 1) Get into good relationship with the target character. She will give
    you a swimsuit gift eventually.
 2) Play as the target character on a vacation and give the swimsuit
    to your playing character. Choose "Leave tomorrow" and play as
    the playing character. You will find the swimsuit at your

 There is a problem with method 2 is that there is a possibility of
 the receiving character throwing away the swimsuit. The best solution
 is to build on good relationship with the character and give her the
 gift later. It is highly advisible not partner with the girl as you
 have more chances of giving gifts to the girl than night.

 Certain swimsuits upon equipped will give your character's additional
 features. For example, equipping the Black Cat swimsuit on Christie
 will features cat's ears on Christie.

 Zack will give 3 non-purchasable swimsuits to every character. These
 special swimsuits can only obtained for other character via gift
 giving. To collect all swimsuits, you may need to play for more than
 3 vacations. These swimsuits cannot be discarded. You cannot discard
 a swimsuit while the character is wearing it.

 There are a total of 304 buyable swimsuits. The swimsuit listing can
 be found each individual character's profile.

6.b. Accessories
 Accessories are items that can be bought from Accessory Shop & can be
 equipped on the character. Unlike swimsuits, you can purchase any of
 accessories listed below with any characters. The "Favorites" refers
 the character listing that you should give the gift to.

 Favorites that are marked with ? are unknown and will be updated when
 I got the character's positive reactions about it. The favorites
 listing may be subjected to errors.

 6.d Original Soundtrack Listing
 You can view the list of soundtrack listing at the Radio Station. This
 game supports custom soundtrack where you can use saved soundtracks
 from your Xbox for the in-game as background music. Some of the
 soundtracks will be available after you have completed a vacation and
 they will be selectable only at the Radio Station. I have discovered a
 total of 18 soundtracks.

Gambling is not always a sure-win thing. But you can use it to
maximize your earnings in order to purchase those expensive swimsuits
for Lisa, Christie and Tina. Before you start to gamble, it is highly
advisable to gain some cash. If you lose all your money, you will be
forced to return to the Hotel.

The casino is only accessible at night from the Hotel menu. 

Under the casino, it feature the following playable games:
- Roulette
- Blackjack
- Poker
- Slot Machine

You can switch your chips from 100 Zack Dollars to 10,000 Zack Dollars.
You can only bet once for Poker. Bet multiple times to top-up your
bettings. Press Cancel (B button) that number of times to quit.

 The roulette is most toughest to play. You will find your other
 companions betting on roulette where every character is represented by
 her own color chip. The color chip is as follows:

 Kasumi  - Pink       Leifang  - Yellow    Tina   - Blue
 Hitomi  - Sky Blue   Christie - Black     Ayane - Purple
 Helena  - White      Lisa     - Red

 Only 4 players can play the roulette at one time. You can bet at
 multiple squares within a time limit. You can view the scoreboard by
 hitting the (Y) button. Hit (A) and use D-Pad to place your bets.
 Hit (X) to commence the game.

 Your objective is guess where the ball will land on the roulette. The
 roulette is marked with black, red and green. You can choose to bet on
 odds or evens, columns or evens or even the individual numbers. It is
 possible to bet on all 38 spots but you will still lose as the odds
 are at most 36:1...

 I still need to more research. I would be happy if someone could help
 me to explain this...

 Blackjack is probably the most famous poker related game. Your
 objective is to draw a set of cards to reach 21 points as close as

 - If you get more than 21 points, you will lose your bet.
 - Banker must draw a card if its total is less than 16 and must stay
   at 17 and above.
 - The game will end automatically if the banker gets Blackjack (21)
 - Aces can be considered as 11 or 1 points.
 - K, Q, J and 10 are considered as 10-points card

Blackjack situations:
 - Insurance will be prompted when a banker's card shows an Ace and a
   covered card. If you choose "Yes"
   1) Banker's card is 21 - you will not lose any money
   2) Banker's card is not 21 - you will lose 1.5x of your bet.
   If you choose "No"
   1) Banker's card is 21 - you lose 1.5x of your bet
   2) Banker's card is not 21 - the game resumes
 - You will get 1.5x of your bet if you hit Blackjack (i.e. a 10-pts
   card and an ace)

 (A) Hit - Take another card
 (B) Stand - Keep the cards that you currently held.
 (X) Double Down - take an additional card to double your initial bet.
     Split - if your cards are of the same value. You can have 2
     "hands". If the split cards are Aces, you can get only an
     additional card per Ace.
 (Y) Surrender - take back half of your bet and give up the game.

 Mathetically, you can manipulate your winnings with some calcuations.
 A deck of cards consists of 52 cards. Thus calcuating...

 Chances of obtaining a card's value is...
 = 7 or > 7         (4x 7p + 4x 8p + 4x 9p + 4x 10p + 4x J + 4x Q +
                     4x K) / 52 x 100% = 53.8%

 10-value card      (4x 10p + 4x J + 4x Q + 4x K)/52 x 100% = 30.7%

 < 5 (include Aces) (4x 5p + 4x 4p + 4x 3p + 4x 2p + 4x A)/52 x 100%
                    = 30.7%

 Ace                = (4x A )/52 * 100% = 7.69%

 < 7     28/52 x 100% = 53.8%
 < 6     24/52 x 100% = 46.1%
 < 5     20/52 x 100% = 38.4%
 < 4     16/52 x 100% = 30.7%
 < 3     12/52 x 100% = 23.1%
 < 2     08/52 x 100% = 15.4%

 The reason for the high probability of drawing a 10-pt card is because
 of K, Q and J cards considered as 10-pt cards. Thus, there are sixteen
 10-pt card as compared to 4 cards of other numbers.

 It sounds logical that if you get 20, you should not hit as due to low
 percentage of getting an Ace. Do not hit if you get 17-pts or more as
 the chances of getting a card higher than 4 is definitely more than
 30.7%. If you want to know more about DOAX: Blackjack check out Agent
 Pliksen's Gamble FAQ, which is also available at GameFAQs 

 Poker is a fun game but you can only bet once. You will be issued 5
 cards where you need to draw a second time. You are allowed to hold
 your cards with the (X) button and cards that are not under hold will
 be swapped with new cards. You will earn money if your cards matches
 any one of the odds:

 Hands and Pay Rates
 Five Cards             50x     Flush             5x
 Royal Straight Flush   30x     Straight          4x
 Straight Flush         20x     Three Cards       3x
 Four Cards             10x     Two Pairs         2x
 Full House              6x     Joker             1x
 If you match any of the above combinations, you will win back your bet
 amount along with the pay rates. If your cards are combination of the
 Hands (listed in the chart above), you will be allowed to play a 
 "Double Up" Game. If you got a Joker (Zack), you will be allowed to
 play the "Joker" Game.

 Getting the correct match
 The chances of obtaining good hand such as Royal Straight Flush is
 *extremely* slim. Your chances are higher if you discarded 3 cards,
 instead of 2 cards. The chances of getting a better set of cards is

 Note: If you fail the "double up" or selecting the Joker, you will
       lose only the original bet.

 "Double Up" Game
 If you hit the hands listed on the chart above, you will be given an
 option whether to "double up" your odds. This is probably best way
 to earn quick money. "Double Up" will result you to earn the winnings
 with the odds double. There are a total of 5 cards and open card will
 be shown with it facing up. Your objective is to choose a card that
 is higher than the facing card. For example, if the card is 5 of
 Spades, you need to get 6 and above. Spade of Ace is considered the
 largest and Joker beats any card on the list.
 There are at least 1 Joker among the 4 choices and this means the
 chances of winning the "Double Up" is high. It is 50-50 chance of
 getting a card higher than the initial card. However, the chances
 will be lower, as you goes on...

 "Joker" Game
 The Joker card game is a simple draw-a-Joker game. Initially, 2 cards
 will be laid on the table. You need to draw a Joker. Subsequently,
 there will be 4 cards if you have drawn the Joker in the previous
 draw. The odds are pretty good as draw the Joker once will double
 your bet money, twice will win you 2x of your bet money up to a total
 of 5 wins. It is basically based on your guessing and luck...
 Slot Machine
 There are total of 8 slot machines (one for each character ^_^:) in
 the game. The payout rate is different and some them could give you
 heavy losses if you are unlucky. You can also identify the character's
 likes from the machines, for example you see butterflies theme in
 Ayane's slots machine and dolphins in Helena's slots machine

 Controls: (A) Bet           Left Analog Stick - move the camera view.
           (X) Starts        You can view odds on the upper part of the
           (B) Cancel        slot machine.

 In my opinion, these is the "hardiest to win" form of gambling. All of
 these based on luck. You need to match three slots according to the
 score chart to earn money. The odds ranges from 5x to 500x! For
 example, you bet 100 zack dollars and matches a selection that pays
 you of odds of 100, you will get 100 x 100 = 100,000 Zack Dollars!
 But in some of slot machines, there are negative values that could
 cost you a fortune in losing a lot of money. If no match is made, you
 will not earned any cash...

 Slot Machines and their Payout Rates

 3x       All slots show this icon
 Any 2    2 of the slot shows this icon
 Any 1    1 of the slot shows this icon
 or       The slots show 2 of these icons. 
          (For example: Dagger or Bar. You win if the slots shows 2
           daggers and bar or 2 bars and a dagger)

 Slot machines are difficult to win but they offer great payouts.
 However, some of the slot machines offer negative odds. If you bet
 100 Zack Dollars, you hit an odd that gives -100, you will lose 
 100,000 Zack Dollars! The most profitable and risky slot machine is
 Christie's - The Target. It is advisible to set your chips to 100 Z
 dollars instead of 10,000 Z. If you hit -500 (3 Sixes on Christie's
 jackpot with 10,000 Z), you will lose 5 million!

 Recommended machines: All except for Christie, Tina & Ayane

                             Secrets & Hints

Skip to the Ending
Once you have completed a 14-day vacation with any character, you will
find an additional option appearing at the Hotel menu that says "Leave
Tomorrow". By selecting this, it will end the current character's
vacation and proceed to the ending. It will applies on Day 2 of that
character's current vacation.

Complete Ending
Complete the 14-day vacation with any one of 8 gals. You will be able
to view the ending. Wait for the credits to view the aftermath of
Zack's Island.

Additional Soundtracks
Practically, some of the soundtracks are available at various parts of
the day. Some of the soundtrack are available in morning while some are
only available in evening. You need to enable them with (A) button by
visiting the Radio Station.

Visor Trick
To have this trick work, you need a transparent visor for the character.
The character needs to wear a swimsuit has some sort-of-see through. Go
to the Poolside. The character should be lying on the bench. Change the
camera view with the L trigger and you should get a view that you will
be view through the visor. You will see the character's skin & some
stars covering those sensitive parts.

Tested Swimsuits: Gimlet, Emu

E-mail policy
Before you consider e-mailing the author about further questions, please
kindly include DOAX or DOAXVB or Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball
as your subject than inputing the question as subject line.

Q & A

1) Where do I get more information about DOAXVB?
   Official links for Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball
   http://www.doaxvb.com (Official website) [flash website]
   http://www.tecmoinc.com (Tecmo's official website)

Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball Game Data
- 1 ~ 2 players
- Custom Soundtracks
- In-game Dolby(R) Control
- Exclusive for Xbox
- 14 blocks

2) How I get quick money?
   The best way is win beach volleyball games with large winning
   margins. Play the hopping game for last 4 days could get you
   at least 30,000 Z dollars per day if you have mastered that mini-
   game. Gambling helps but it is rather risky.

3) How do I give the Venus swimsuit to ?
   You need to play as Lisa as only you can purchase the Venus swimsuit
   while using her. First of all, you need to pamper the girl with a lot
   of love gifts. Next get Lisa to partner with that girl. Continue and
   improve the relationship with a series of "likes" and "love" gifts.
   Win beach volleyball games and give the swimsuit on the 13th day of
   the vacation.

4) Is there NUDE or NAKED mode in the game?
   Absolutely no. This game is rated as Matured.

5) Does the rumoured TOPLESS CODE by Electronic's Gaming Monthly works?


   Practically, it was another joke by the creators of the magazine. I
   have tested the code out. I have received e-mails regarding this
   code. According to my readers, the code is said to be done in the
   following steps:-

   In order to activate "Topless Mode", you need to finish a vacation
   with a new saved file under 0:13 by using any other girl except for

   1) Choose to partner with Lisa.
   2) Visit accessory shop as told and exit.
   3) Visit unoccupied places where you can view gravure movies. As
      soon as you enter the gravure movie, choose to exit immediately.
   4) In the evening, you will be forced to play a beach volleyball
      game. Hit START to pause the game and choose to give up.
   5) Do not visit the Casino at night and choose "Go to Bed" ASAP.
   6) For the remaining days of the vacation, visit unoccupied places
      to view gravure movies and quickly exit them. Go to bed when
      your character is back at the hotel during night time.
   7) Do this and view the ending credits. View your saved file and
      it must be under 0:13 to activate the mode.
   8) To activate, play a vacation with any character. Hit (Y) on
      the current swimsuit that the character is wearing. The "W"
      (wear) symbol will be replaced with "T" (topless).

   [Thanks to Ryoichi Toraneko  & Joe Smith

   To do it under 13 minutes, you can go to the poolside and choose
   "Take a rest" for a gravure movie. I have did that and get it under
   12 minutes for the entire vacation. The (Y) button does not have
   any impact on the swimsuit inventory screen.

   I have seen from the message boards at GameFAQs that you need to do
   it twice and save the second time on a memory card. Thus apparently
   is FALSE as you cannot save the file on the memory card. All saves
   have to be done in the console itself!

   Once again, I would like to repeat the code does not work and it is
   NOT A REAL CODE! By the way, do not trust the screenshots too much
   as they can be edited. I believe it is another APRIL'S FOOLS JOKE
   from Electronic's Gaming Monthly (EGM)
