2.  M O D E S   O F   P L A Y 
======================================================================


-------------------------------
2.1 - Free Ride
-------------------------------
These sloped courses feature a variety of obstacles and numerous
checkpoints, where extra time can be earned by performing tricks.
Make sure your boarder makes it to the goal within the allotted time,
or you're a loser! 


-------------------------------
2.2 - Super Pipe
-------------------------------
Bust multiple tricks and catch tons of air in this gnarly halfpipe
mode. Make sure your boarder makes it to the finish line at the end
of the course within the allotted time and then watch as the total
performance results are displayed. In addition to the points acquired
along the way, the overall evaluation also includes the content and
the form of the tricks performed.


-------------------------------
2.3 - Match Race
-------------------------------


-----------------
2.3.1 - Battle
-----------------
Compete against your favorite rival using this novel racing mode 
where trick expertise is key. By busting tricks you can earn attacking 
power or extra thrust, both of which can have more effect on the race 
outcome than mere speed. 


----
2.3.1.1 - Line Versus
----
A completely new and unique aspect to this mode is the ability to 
win a match by using the split-screen to your advantage. Execute 
tricks toeffect a "line attack" which will move the dividing line of 
the split screen, shrinking your opponents screen, making their race 
much harder. If done enough times, you can even shut them completely 
out, and win.


----
2.3.1.2 - Trick Boost
----
In this battle mode, use the Guard Button to give your boarder a 
jet-boost that will propel them at super high velocity. However,
activating the speed boost requires "boost power points" which can 
only be received by earning trick points at the trick areas.


-----------------
2.3.2 - Free Race
-----------------
This mode is for those who prefer a pure and unadulterated race.
Select whether you want to compete in time, trick, or total.
You can even set a handicap, setting the handicap will give the
lagging boarder a bit of extra speed.

-"To perform a rotation trick while riding, press and hold the Jump
Button while pressing the D-Pad or Analog Stick in the direction
you wish the border to rotate. Once you release the Jump Button, the
boarder will rotate in mid-air in the direction the D-Pad or Analog
Stick was pressed." - Taken from the Instruction manual.

everything past 1080 is 720 points.

BUTTON COMBO     TRICK(POINTS)

/U\ + (B)  -  -  Front Manual(100)
\D/ + (B)  -  -  Wheelie Manual(100)

-The point value grows as you hold the manual longer.
-I am not sure how many points per second it increases.
-Apparently, the more manuals you do, the base value increases.
I've had the base value start at 130, and 180.
-I have only found one mode of play where you get points for
manuals; Line Versus, a Battle Mode in Match Race.
-..It is a good cheap way to win Line Versus, altough.

-------------------------------
Each character has their own specialty moves:
-One-step sepcialties(DJ Ken's moves) are worth 180 points.
-Two-step specialties are worth 250 points, plus the
first trick.
-Three-step specialties(Monica's Born to be Free, etc)
are worth 450 points, plus the first two tricks.

-------------------------------
4.5 - Point system
-------------------------------

-All tricks are worth base value listed.
-In combos, the second trick is worth ABOUT one and a fourth of it's 
base value(eg, an Indy's worth 125, instead of 100)
-..And the third trick is worth ABOUT one and a half of it's base 
value (eg, an Indy's worth 150, instead of 100)
-Doing a combo 'Fakie' adds 20 points to the combo.
-Doing a spin 'B.Side' takes away 20 points from the spin.
-Holding a trick will get you a larger 'finish'.
-You cannot do the same trick twice in a row.
-Finish is graded on how complex the combo is, how long you hold
grabs, and how well you land.

-An example broken down:
I did a Fakie B.Side 540, with a Tail Grab, and Mute.

SCREEN SAYS          BROKEN DOWN

Fakie      20  -  -  +20 for doing it Fakie.
Tail Grab  120 -  -  Tail Grab initial value of 120.
Mute       187 -  -  Mute(150) + 1/4th Mute Value(150/4 = 37)
B.Side 540 270 -  -  180(110) + 180(90) + 180(90) - B.Side(20) 
Finish     177 -  -  It just.. is...


-----------------
4.5.1 - Half-Pipe Grade Scoring
-----------------
The half-pipe courses are ranked in "Grade", and "Total".
Total is just the total number of points you get for doing tricks.
Grade is a ranking of how you did in various areas, these areas are;
-Standard
-Rotation
-Amplitude
-Landing
-Technical

-Standard is graded by how many standard tricks(basic grabs) you do.
-Rotation is graded by how many rotations you do(180+'s, Misty's, Flips).
-Amplitude is graded by how high you jump off the half-pipe.
-Landing is how well you land/how many times you land(don't fall!).
-Technical is graded by specialty moves, complex combos, etc.

power are quite promising.

6.1 FREE RIDE
-------------------------------


-----------------
6.1.1 - Mountain Review
-----------------
Manual Description:
 Bone up on your skills with this slope-style practice level 
course. Be sure to mind the sheep!

Jp's Description:
 A run down a slope which changes scenery alot. A quick run 
through an ordinary mountain town turns into a very ancient
looking town after a run-by with a train. And it ends with
a good set-up for a big jump passing by a highway, overlooking
a moderate-sized city, after a small run through a cave.

Trick Areas:     5

Shortcuts:
-None really, multiple paths, no secrets...

Other Things of Interest:
- Watch for the helicopter that gets smashed early on in the stage.
- The changing scenery is also noteworthy.
- Hitting sheep across the mountain is kinda fun...
- That train is a bad omen of things to come...
- The cave also serves as a bad omen...
- The city at the end, while beautiful, is also a bad omen...


-----------------
6.1.2 - Emerald Forest
-----------------
Manual Description:
 Complete Course 1 to ride this tree covered run. Avoid the 
gullies and don't hurt the trees!

Jp's Description:
 They like to change the situation of these runs a lot, apparently.
A small cross on a wooden bridge, leads through a small cave
into a beautiful forest, then another cave run leads to a cliff-run
with some ruins dotting the edges. You then go through an ancient 
temple of some sorts, which while beautiful, seems kind of 
unrealistic(And like a Misty 2520 isn't?).

Trick Areas:     5

Shortcuts:
- The 4th Trick Area is somewhat hidden. When you first enter
the temple, after the 3rd Trick area, the path splits, take 
the path to the right, and it will lead to the 4th Trick Area.
- There are "Some hops you can take from ramp to ramp within the 
cathedral" - from Joe Ses

Other Things of Interest:
- Watch out for the falling pillars right before you enter the
temple.


-----------------
6.1.3 - Urban Striker
-----------------
Manual Description:
 Place in the top 3 for Course 2 to hit the big bad city in a 
snowstorm. Don't broadslide the buildings!

Jp's Description:
 I told you the city in Mountain Review was an omen!
A long run amongst a bunch of buildings, turns into a quick
run through a factory. 

Trick Areas:     4

Shortcuts:
- "Once you are about halfway through the city it seems that 
you can hit some flat rooftops on the right and take a different 
route down." - from Joe Ses
- "When you first land [in the Factory], stay right and go through 
the doorway at the top of the incline, jump at the end of the 
catwalk to land below and cut outmost of the pipe stuff. Then 
stay right again and jumpas the path drops off two times to land 
right at the trick area jump off..." - from Joe Ses
- "Where the 2 cranes are swinging, go to the right, along the 
wall, there is an opening, make 1 jump and it takes you to the 
last trick area." - from Githyanki79
- "After the entrance to the play ground, there is a small alleyway. 
Need to make 2 90 degree turns, but brings you to the trick area a 
little faster." - from Githyanki79

Other Things of Interest:
- "If you jump onto the square below theclock tower, you will 
hear loud bells start ringing(if you don't have it on perma mute 
to silence that annoying guy) and they seem to keep ringing until 
you get far enough away." - from Joe Ses 


-----------------
6.1.4 - Cave Slider
-----------------
Manual Description:
 Place in the top 3 for Course 3 to go underground on this 
historical trek. Watch out for them bones!

Jp's Description:
 I told you the cave was an omen!
An old, deserted city leads into a rather large cave, which
leads out onto an apparent glacier, and ends in front of a 
factory. I hate this level...

Tricks Areas:     6

Shortcuts:
- The 3rd checkpoint is somewhat hidden. After the 2nd Trick Area,
instead of overshooting the road and boarding alongside it, follow
it, and you will come to it as the road ends.
- The 4th checkpoint is often missed, as well. In the cave, once you
pass the waterfall, stay on the top level of rock, and you will
come to it.
- "The best way to negotiate the entrance to the caves is to 
jump just to the left ofthe first big green stalagmite and land 
as far downhill as possible, without going too far to the left 
and landing in the dark brown death zone." - from Joe Ses
- "Near the end of the glacier, you can jump just to the right 
of 3 yellow signs across a chasm and land on the path below."
  - from Joe Ses

Other Things of Interest:
- Like the manual description says, watch out for them bones.
- You NEED the 3rd and 4th checkpoints to get through this level
with good scores. They are good areas to pull of Misty 360's and
the sort.


-----------------
6.1.5 - Dancing Devils
-----------------
Manual Description:
 Place in the top 3 for TOTAL in Course 4 to board this radical 
track with some freaky hairpin turns!

Jp's Description:
 And you thought Cave Striker was bad? this one will take you
to the edge of multiple cliffs, throw boulders on you, throw
you into a cave with many chances to fall, and send a train
barreling after you. 

Trick Areas:     6

Shortcuts:
- The 2nd Trick Area is somewhat hidden. After that first boulder
takes you out, stay on top, and make all the jumps, and, you'll
reach it.
- It's almost impossible to beat this course without outrunning
the train. It is possible, but, pretty hard.

Other Things of Interest:
- I told you the train was an omen!


-----------------
6.1.6 - Ending Course
-----------------
*No Manual Description.

Jp's Description:
 The practice course from Cool Boarders 2, an interesting way to
roll the credits.

Trick Areas:     19

Shortcuts:
- No shortcuts, just, a straight downhill run with 19 jumps.

Other Things of Interest:
- It's the credits, it's cool, enjoy it!


-----------------
6.1.7 - Secret Force
-----------------
*No Manual Description

Jp's Description:
 The SECRET level! Take a ride through Area 51! I'm getting sick of
this alien stuff in boarding/skating games...

Trick Areas:     6

Shortcuts:
- When the tunnel levels out, look for the signs on the cieling,
pointing right, GO RIGHT, or else you will fall... badly.
- Right after the underwater tunnel ends, and the tunnel splits
up, stay to the left, it's the shortest direct way out.

Other Things of Interest:
- The plane crash at the beginning is cool, watch out for the jeep
that comes barreling out of the tunnel after the crash, though.
- When you reach the end, look at all the little flying saucers
darting around, kinda cool, eh?


-------------------------------
6.2 - SUPER PIPE
-------------------------------


-----------------
6.2.1 - Super Pipe
-----------------
Manual Description:
 Compared with out previous halfpipes, this baby features a section
with an oversized lip that'll gurantee you'll catch some major air.

Jp's Description:
 Just a halfpipe, a large one, with an oversized lip, yes, but, 
still a halfpipe.


-----------------
6.2.2 - Extra Super Pipe
-----------------
Manual Description:
 The design for this truly intense course was based on an Amusement
Park. Conquer this bad boy, and you'll be ready for anything!
However, to earn the right to ride this course, you'll have to place
in the top three rankings for the Super Pipe. Good Luck!

Jp's Description:
 A WICKED halfpipe, massively long, lots of turns, and twists, and
variations. It will grow in height, drop down, just stop for a short
gap. This one is impressive, and tough to beat...

-------------------------------
8.1 - Characters
-------------------------------

-There are 2 secret characters:
The Snowman, and Gray the Alien.

-You get the Snowman for beating the high score(i'm not sure if it's 
time, trick, total, or all) in the ending course.

-You get Gray for just beating the Secret Force track.

-Unfortunately in the domestic version, there is no third secret 
character, he is replaced with Jimmy(gee, aren't we lucky?).

-In Cool Boarders Burrrn(Japan version), instead of Jimmy, there's a
third secret character, Tightman. You get Tightman for beating the
total score in the Secret Force track.


-------------------------------
8.2 - Costumes
-------------------------------

-Every standard character has a third costume. 

-Standard characters means Axel, Tia, Ronnie, Monica, DJ Ken, Bob, and
yes, Jimmy.

-Snowman and Gray do NOT have third costumes.

-To get a person's 3rd costume, you have to beat 5 levels in a row with
them. Any 5 levels(Starting at level 1), You have to use the same board
the whole time, and you can't quit or change.


-------------------------------
8.3 - Courses
-------------------------------

-Only the one I know of, The Secret Force. 

-Get this by beating all of one of the score-types(trick/time/total) in 
the 5 main tracks.


-------------------------------
8.4 - Boards
-------------------------------

-Each standard board has a second graphical version. I'm not sure how 
to get them, though, just, go through the courses, and beat some
records, you'll get 'em.

-And there are the Special boards, which you get for beating all the 
high scores in a score-type. Eg, to get the ALS, you'd have to beat
all of the Time records for the Freeride tracks.

-And the super-secret uber-board you get for beating the high score 
in everything, everywhere.

-Jimmy has hidden boards, as well. Me and PufShePuf both got them in
various ways, I got them for beating various tracks in a certain 
amount of time. Puf got them that way, and by beating the records in
other courses. Jimmy does NOT have second graphical versions of his 
boards, and he does NOT have any uber-boards.
