Final Notes _____ ______ / //_ __/ --------------------------------------------------------- / _/ / / CHAPTER I / /\ \ / / INTRODUCTION /_/ \_\ /_/ -------------------------------------------------------------- =========================== 1. Introduction to the Game =========================== Road Trip a Racing/RPG/Adventure for the Playstation 2. Road Trip is part of a popular game series in Japan known as Choro Q. Over twenty of these games have been made and sadly, only a few have left Japan. Road Trip in Japan is Choro Q HG 2 and is not only one of the best localized Choro Q games, but one of the best games for PS2. Unfortunately, despite this, Road Trip will be overlooked because of it's cover, which leads you to believe it's just another cutesy racing game. So go on and convince your friends to buy Road Trip. Hopefully it sells well enough for them to bring another one overseas! ================================== 2. Introduction to the Walkthrough ================================== Most of this walkthrough is for the Adventure Game, but I included a section for the quick race and 2-Player modes as well in Chapter XI. Since Road Trip is a completely open-ended game, it's difficult for me to prescribe one path you should play. If I told you to do this and then that, it would take a lot of the fun away. There are some events that you should probably do before others, and those are listed in the Quick Walkthrough section. Other than that, this is mainly a guide to help you out with the various aspects of the game in parts instead of a whole. This also makes for quicker and smarter navigation of the guide. If you have any questions at all, feel free to email me: (email@example.com) With that said, good luck and most importantly, have fun! NOTE: All parts of this guide with an * asterisks on it was done by Reverend Jim. _____ ______ / //_ __/ --------------------------------------------------------- / _/ / / CHAPTER II / /\ \ / / THE BASICS /_/ \_\ /_/ -------------------------------------------------------------- =========== 1. Controls =========== These are the default game controls for Road Trip. They can be changed in the menu. This will be explained in part 3. Car Controls: Steer- Directional Buttons or Left Analog Stick Accelerate- X Brake- Square Reverse- Circle Change View- Triangle Start- Menu (Pauses game during race) Select- Zoom in/out Radar Display Wing Up- L1 Wing Down- L2 Jet Engine- R2 Horn- R1 Menu/Dialog Controls: Enter- X and Circle Cancel- Square and Triangle ================= 2. Screen Display ================= >Map Radar: You can check your position on the map with the map radar in the bottom left portion of your screen. Part of the Map Radar will flash green when you have a new email. Here's how to read the Map Radar: Green Dots- Other Vehicles Black Dots- Quick Pic Shops Brown Dots- Houses Blue Dots- Q's Factory >Speedometer: The speedometer is in the bottom right portion of your screen. It has many important features: RPMs- The numbers around the outside of the speedometer show your RPMs. Fuel- On the right side of the speedometer is the fuel display. It will decrease as you drive and eventually blink and run out, making your car drive very slowly. Entering any building will fill up your tank again automatically. Beware, engines with a higher energy rating eat up fuel quickly. The same goes for using the Jet Engine. Gear- On the left of the fuel display is a number that displays your current gear. Speed- The large number on the bottom next to "mph" is your speedometer. This displays your current speed in Miles Per Hour (mph). Time- At the very bottom of the speedometer is a clock. The number shows what time it is in 24 hour time. (that is: 22:16, instead of 10:16 PM) The picture on the left is a visual display of the time. ================= 3. Game Modes ================= From the title screen when you turn on your game you have 5 Choices: Adventure: Most of this guide contains info on adventure mode. It is the primary mode in Road Trip. You can choose New Game to start a new game, or Continue to resume from a previous save. Quick Race: Like it sounds. Pick a course a race. 2 Player: *NOTE: Only appears if two controllers are plugged in to the PS2* If you and a friend both have saves on separate memory cards, you can pit your cars against each other in a number of different modes including: Options: Change Vibration, Speaker and Sound Settings. Results: Check your standings in a variety of different races such as Endurance Run and Tin Raceway. Not really useful unless you want to see your times without entering the game. ======= 4. Menu ======= Pressing START will bring up the main menu while playing. This menu will not appear while inside a building. WARP: Choose a city from the list and you'll instantly be warped to the Q's Factory in that city. NOTEBOOK: The notebook contains information on everything you've completed.

It also includes your scores on some mini-games. ?RADIO: Choose from two available radio stations. Channel 1 is Peach FM and it has bad singing on it. Station 2 is E-Radio which is just music and I recommend you set it as your radio station. You can choose off if you don't wish to listen to music. Pressing Up on the D-Pad increases the volume and pressing Down on the D-Pad decreases the volume.? ITEMS: In the upper right corner is your money display. Below that are some important stats including mileage and Choro Q Coins collected. Also listed is Advertisements which I will explain later in this chapter. In the sky blue box on the left is your current list of items and below that is a description of the item currently highlighted. ?SETTINGS: Here you can change the default controls. Highlight the one you want and press left or right to pick a new button setting. Press Apply to save changes. To revert to the default controls, press enter on Initial Settings. ?MAP: This option displays the entire world map. Your current position is the blinking red car icon. If anyone knows what the ocean's name is, please email me. It looks like Bzand Ocean to me. ======== 5. Shops ======== Q's Factory: There is a Q's Factory in every town. You can do a variety of different things here. -Change Parts- Choose which Tires, Engine, Chassis, Transmission, Steering, Brake, Wheel, Lights, Wing Set, Special Parts, Options, Sticker, Horn, Meter and Body you want for you and your teammates. -World Grand Prix- This appears when you have completed every A-License race. It's a six round championship. -Race- Choose from the city's current race list. You can only compete in races you have a license for. -Save Data- Save your game here. I recommend you do so often. -Quit Game- Quits the current game and brings you back to the title screen. -Drive Around Town- Exits the Q's Factory.

Peach Town ============= "Town full of peach trees" Population: ??? Hierarchy: 2 Races: Peach Raceway, Peach Raceway II Teammates: 12 Rating: 4 Stars Description: Peach Town is the city you'll start your game in. It offers a limited selection of parts, but the races here are the fastest way to make money in the first half of the game. Peach Town also has a large number of good teammates to choose from, which will be invaluable early on. ============ 2. Fuji City ============ "City has a big castle" Population: ??? Hierarchy: 2 Races: Ninja Temple Raceway, Temple Raceway Teammates: Rating: 4 Stars Fuji city is my favorite city and is easily one of the most visually lush in the game. It has a decent selection of parts, some excellent teammates and contains a large variety of things to do. Fuji City also contains one of the most frustrating aspects in the game: The Dreaded Maze. You may make it through once, but under 3 minutes is near impossible without a guide. Luckily for you, I sat down with some graph paper and mapped out the maze. Here's the link: http://www.geocities.com/roadtripmap/fujimap.html ========== 3. My City ========== "Your own city to develop" Population: ??? Hierarchy: 10 Races: Endurance Run, Q's Rally Teammates: Rating: 5 Stars My City is the most useful and complete city in the game. Basically, you tell people about your town, and they'll move there and open up all kinds of houses and shops. It has everything you'll need and will eventually become the hub for all activities and purchases in the game. It contains My Garage and innumerable mini-games and teammates. Plus, it's fun to watch your town grow and develop. My City Inhabitants: Velvet Gump Saucy Sylvester Arnold Cobran Brian Kuwano Coine Sally Roji Flower Gichi Akiban Roberts Body Shop Parts Shop George Q's Factory Manei Paint Shop Rally Center Recycle Shop Accel Dayan ============ 4. My Garage ============ "Warp to your garage anytime" Population: N/A Hierarchy: 1 Races: N/A Rating: N/A While your garage isn't a city, it's a very important location that you'll no doubt visit very often. It contains your email, wall patterns and lets you pick from a list of minigames you've encountered during your adventure. ============= 5. Sandpolis ============= "City of glaring neon lights" Population: ??? Hierarchy: 3 Races: Desert Raceway, Night Glow Raceway Rating: 4 Stars Sandpolis is the first big city you'll find on your adventure. It's packed with places to see and things to do, most importantly of which is the soccer mini-game. While you may find it easy to beat the computer, playing soccer against your friends is a blast. Sandpolis is also notable for its size, which is quite enormous. It may take you a while to find all of the houses here. ================== 6. Chestnut Canyon ================== "City of steep rocky valleys" Population: ??? Hierarchy: 5 Races: Miner 49er Raceway, Lava Run Raceway Rating: 2 Stars Chestnut Canyon is a small village built on a range of mountain cliffs. There's not much to do here, but you can create a personal greeting that the townspeople here will use, which is kind of cool. Mine was "sup". ================ 7. Mushroom Road ================ "Mushroom grows around the road" Population: ??? Hierarchy: 6 Races: River Raceway, Slick Track, Oval Raceway Rating: 2 Star This small niche city contains only a few things, namely golf and a lake goddess, but no cars! Maybe it's just me, but the goddess reminds me of the waterfall fairy in Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Anyways, the parts shop sells good tires, and there are three different races, but other than that, there's not much to do here. ================= 8. White Mountain ================= "Mountain covered with snow" Population: ??? Hierarchy: 7 Races: Snow Mountain Raceway Rating: 5 Stars White Mountain is another large city that will take you quite a while to see. Marvel at the ski jump, practice curling and don't forget to be good for Santa. Yes, White Mountain has it all and a bag of chips. Here you'll find a plethora of teammates and useful parts, as well as some useful items such as the invaluable Coin Radar. ================ 9. Papaya Island ================ "Island with natural beauty" Population: ??? Hierarchy: 8 Races: Sunny Beach Raceway, Lagoon Raceway Rating: 4 Stars When you're all stressed out from racing, take a relaxing vacation on the beaches of beautiful Papaya Island. Here you'll find exotic locales, as well as special parts and mini-games. Enjoy waterskiing and fishing in this island paradise. And when you're all rested up, catch a rainbow to Cloud Hill, the home of the president. ============= 10. Cloud Hill ============= "Floating island with rainbow" Population: ??? Hierarchy: 9 Races: Tin Raceway Rating: 3/4 Stars Cloud Hill feels like an exclusive members club in the sky. Certain items and areas won't be available until you complete almost everything in the game. But available right off the bat are some two great teammates, great parts and cool bodies. =================== 11. Other Locations =================== Windmills and Underwater Ruins Population: N/A Hierarchy: N/A Races: N/A Rating: N/A These locations are more scenic than anything, but they do provide you with a few stamps. _____ ______ / //_ __/ --------------------------------------------------------- / _/ / / CHAPTER IV / /\ \ / / RACES /_/ \_\ /_/ -------------------------------------------------------------- Note: Submit your best lap times and I'll post them here! ================ 1.

Cleared the Rainbow Jump! - The rainbow jump can be done in Cloud Hill. Here are two strategies: Use the Jet Turbine and the spoiler and land right on the lip of the platform and stop your car immediately. It takes about 60-100 tries this way. Reverend Jim Wrote: You have to use your spoiler, utilizing the L1 and L2 buttons. Start with the spoiler up, and then after you cut off the engines wait a sec and then put the spoilers down. Hopefully you should cut your speed enough to successfully land. It takes me at least twenty tries every time though. 91. Visited all the houses in Mushroom Road! - Visit all of the houses. 92.

Guessed the correct number of windmills! - Go inside the house near the windmills, which are north of the Island Bridge. The correct answer is 24. 98. Met the Black Bus Orpheus! - See stamp #63. 99. Made a first contact! - Simply go to the northwest of Sandopolis past two Quick-Pic shops and you'll see a yellow light with a UFO over it. Drive into the light and you'll be beamed up.
