More Versions will be released later, i hope you enjoy! 2.0 6/2/99 I have added a secrets section like i said i would last update. Now all i need to do is get the FAQ and walkthrough done. I've also added the requirements for the medals. As well as the credits. DOH! forgot that last time! This is only a small update, hopefully next update will be bigger! 3.0 6/3/99 Added the FAQ today, not much else. Added a new secret as well. This update wasn't really that big, but at least i got it done. My next update may or may not include a walkthrough, depending on when i want to get the next update out! -Contents- 1.

The Birdman Stars ==================== Here are the locations of the 4 birdman stars: Holiday Island: Along the water there is a natural arch,under it is the birdman star, i reccomend using the Jetpack to get to this birdman star! Little States Island: This one is in Central Park! Why don't you visit the statue of liberty while your in the area? I also reccomend using the jetpack to get to this one! Crescent Island: In a cove along the beach, there is another birdman star, you should either use the Jetpack or the Gyrocopter to get to this one! Everfrost Island: Now this one is pretty well hidden, first find the group of waterfalls, at the top of those, go through the right cave, at the end there is the last birdman star! ================== 3. The Charecters ================== There are 6 charecters in the game, none of which are "secret" Most of them are good at different things, here are the charecters and their best abilities! (the following are my opinions after using the charecters on all the levels, they are not 100% accuracte but should be pretty accurate. Just don't e-mail me telling me i'm wrong!) Lark Best Event: Birdman, Skydyving Worst Event: Hang Glider Kiwi Best Event: Jumple Hopper! Worst Event: Almost Anything else Hawk Best Event: He Doesn't Have One, He's Awful Worst Event: Pick One! Ibis Best Event: Hang Glider, Jet Pack Worst Event: She's Pretty Bad At Jumble Hopper... Goose Best Event: Anything BUT Jet Pack he is pretty good at!

Secrets ========== Here are some useful and not-so-useful secrets that can be found while playing pilotwings. Have any secrets that aren't listed here? send them in to me and i will post it along with your name in the credits section! -Face Lift- This one is pretty useless, it's just for people who like to blow stuff up(like me!) anway, on Class B use the gyrocopter and fly to Mt. Rushmore. See mario's face? hit it with a few missles and it will turn into wario! now THAT's a face lift! -Face Lift 2- Just go to cannonball mode, Level 1. Hit Mario again with the cannon and he will turn into wario again. this one is more fun to do in my opinion -From Night To Day- i am pretty sure this trick works with birdman, as well as the other 3 vehicles on the begginger course. Go to the begginer stage, near the castle, see that river? follow along the watery path to find the source of the lake, go inside the cave to the end. if it worked you should hear a sound, when you exit the cave it will no longer be Day, it will be night. This serves no real purpose that i know of but it still is cool! -Where's AM-PM when you need them?- In little states island there is a gas station! Just land under the roof with your rocketpack\ Gyrocopter and it will automaticlly re-fuel you! your fuel gauge will now be full! -More Endings!- This isn't really that much of a secret, well sorta. anyway there are actully 3 endings in the game. they are all the same except one takes place in morning, one noon, and one at night! Here's Morning: Complete all of the normal missions Afternoon: Get a gold medal on all the normal missions, PLUS all the bonus missions. Night: Get a perfect score on all the normal, and bonus missions! ======= 6. FAQ ======= Q. Sometimes when i'm using my gyrocopter, there are these blue and\ or white balls in the air. What is the point of these? A. They are un-opened rings, you need to fly through the previous ring(s) to open them. Q. The dots on my radar are sometimes yellow, and sometimes green, sometimes they even switch from green to yellow, or vice versa. Why do they change? A. These dots stand for rings, or targets, the dots will be yellow if it is above you, and green if it is below you. Q. Sometimes when i go to the red areas on my map that show up on my radar when i'm using my hang glider, there isn't a thermal there. Why? A. You are either too high, or low to reach the thermal. the radar only indicates where the thermals are horizontilaly, not verticlly. ========== 7. Credits ========== The cannonball settings were copied from Ign64.com. And only the cannonball settings, some of my secrets may be on Ign64's site and probably are. But i found these myself, i don't have too many secrets so either go to ign64.com or if you'd like you can submit some to me, which would help other people out as well! Also i would like to have am actual FAQ in this, so send any questions you have as well. The rest of this FAQ was written entirely by me, and i have not taken anyone elses work. If you have any comments\complaints\etc e-mail them to me! One more thing, i hope to have a walkthrough and a FAQ in the next version last version, i hoped for that plus a secrets FAQ, hopefully i can have one of the next two done in the NEXT update :) And finally, this entire FAQ is copyrighted by me.
