////////Introduction\\\\\\\\

"Seven years ago I said 'and the winner is Sydney'. Well what can I say now?...
You have helped to write a glorious chapter in the history of Australia."
International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Juan Antonio Samaranch said at
the closing ceremony of the 27th Summer Olympics in Sydney.

The game was released on the PSX in August a few months before the actual games.
There are 12 events to compete in plus an olympic training mode. The game is
basically button bashing as many of these types of games are although a few
events are not. This game is pretty fun and the olympic mode can be completed
in about a day, even though it still has great replay value as beating your own
records is quite addictive. I recommend borrowing this game because of the
current price, although when it comes down to about half price it would be very
good use of your money to buy it.

 * = The default setting.
** = I don't know how to unlock this difficulty in the game, I got it using a
     gameshark code. I think you have to pass olympic mode or something like
     that to get it, but I am unsure.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

////////Game Modes\\\\\\\\

    Arcade
    ^^^^^^
    Arcade mode lets you play every event in any order you choose. You gain
    points for how well you do in terms of time or distance ect. (not overall
    position). After you have completed all the events your points are added up
    and you get ranked against the other competitors.

    If Classic is set in the arcarde type of the game setup in the options menu
    you will only get the normal amount of attempts at each event. If it is set
    to Repeat Play you will get unlimited attempts, however only your last time
    or distance is taken for scoring.

    When selecting a player slot for this mode you will need to enter a name,
    the game allows 3 characters for your name. You also select a country to
    play as. In the third line there are 5 stars and a sideways oval (I think
    it has COM written in it), the stars represent the difficulty, 1 star and
    you run faster, throw further ect. and 5 stars will make you run slower and
    throw shorter. If you select the oval then that player is controlled by the
    computer. If you have Watch set to Players Only you will see this computer
    player perfrom, if it is off you won't.

    Olympic
    ^^^^^^^
    You train for four stages in this event doing various activities such as
    bench presses and pole climbing. After you train for a stage you have to
    qualify in the current stage you are up to (The stages are Open Trials,
    Invitation Event, The Championship and Olympic Class).

    Once you have qualified at Olympic Class in at least one event you can
    select Goto the Olympics from the Olympic Mode menu. You get to see a
    opening ceremony also when you select this option.

    Head to Head
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^
    You need a memory card with at least five blocks on it (the blocks need to
    have Sydney 2000 data already on them) and a minium of two contorlers for
    this mode.

    When you select new player the game loads one of your saved arcade mode
    games. Then with the second controller you select new player again and
    load andother arcade mode game (if you dont have any arcade mode games
    saved or you select a player where you havent started an arcade mode game
    you will automatically copy or create a game on the player you selected.
    So you have a game saved as player 5, in head to head you load your game as
    player 1, a copy of you game will be made in the player 1 slot in the
    normal arcade mode game). Once you have loaded at least two games you can
    start. This mode now plays excatly the same as arcade mode except you have
    multiple players competing simultaniously.

    This mode is pretty fun with a couple of multitaps, people probally don't 
    use it though because they don't know how to set it up. I think the
    developer should have made it a litte easier to start ie. you dont need to
    have games saved previously.

    Coaching
    ^^^^^^^^
    This mode is basically practice mode, and when you have completed one
    practice you get to compete against your ghost. This mode is good for
    learning the controls ect. as you get unlimited goes at each event.

    Credits
    ^^^^^^^
    This just shows the credits for the game.

    Options
    ^^^^^^^
    See the previous section (game options, iv).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

////////Event Guide\\\\\\\\

    100m Sprint
    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    The 100m Sprint is a dash down a 100m track. The winner is the person who
    makes it there in the shortest time. If you go before go is said you get a
    false start. If you false start twice you get disqualified.

    Alternate between Power buttons to run and use an action button to duck
    your head down at the finish line.

    To win this event try and get a good start. Go is usually said about five
    seconds after set is said. So about five seconds after set start running
    and hopefully you will not get a false start. However if you do then I
    recommend you wait the next try until you actually see the word go and hear
    the gun, otherwise you'll be in danger of getting disquallified.

    Once you have a good start keep hammering away at Cross and Circle until
    you get to the end. Press an action button just before the finish line to
    lean down, this can save a few milliseconds, and if you get it right it can
    save you the race. In easy mode you can win this event with about 10:50.

    110m Hurdles
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^
    In this event you have to run down the track and jump 10 hurdles while
    running. The same false start rule applies here as it does in the 100m
    Sprint.

    Alternate between Power buttons to run and use an action button to jump the
    hurdles. At the end of the race use the action button to lean down.

    Try to keep good running speed up here while jumping the hurdles. Jump the
    hurdles about three runners feet (in the game not 12 inches) before the
    base of the hurdle to make it over. You will easily win if you can jump
    some of the hurdles. I have even won by knocking all the hurdles over, just
    running into them all. It rarely works though, and I dont suggest you try
    it in the hurdles final.

    Remember to use the action button at the end of the race to lean so you can
    save a few milliseconds and maybe even the race. A winning time in easy
    difficulty is usually just above 14:70.
    
    Javelin
    ^^^^^^^
    Here you run down a track with a pole on your shoulder. At the end of the
    track you have to launch the pole as far as you can to win. The furtherest
    throw wins. You get three attempts at this event

    Use the power buttons to run and press the action buttons to set the angle
    of the throw.

    Tap the power buttons alternativly to start running, once the angle display
    pops up you can stop pressing the power buttons and press the action button
    to set the angle. Press and hold it until it gets to the desired degrees.
    Usually about 45-55 degrees is a good throw which will get you maxium
    distance, but depending on your speed you may be more successful with a
    high lob or a low bullet throw. I recommend the 45-55 range though,
    practice this event until you find a degree that matches the speed that you
    press the power buttons. About 55m can win this event.

    Hammer
    ^^^^^^
    In the Hammer you have to swing it around your head and then release it,
    thus making it land inside the sector. If you hit the cage or land outside
    the sector you foul. You get three attempts at this event.

    Use the power buttons to start spinning the hammer around your head, once
    the red arrow appears press the action button to set the degree and throw
    the hammer.

    Tap the power buttons as fast as you can so you get some good speed, after
    about 3 turns the red arrow will appear. Hold down the action buttons to
    start the degree meter and release it when the arrow is facing the sector.
    Hold down the action button when it gets to about 9 o'clock and release it
    at 12 o'clock to get a good angle and maxium distance.

    \               /
     \             /
      \   __#__   /
       \ /     \ /
       | *     | |
       | \_____/ |
       |_________|

    * = where you should hold down the action button.
    # = where you should release the action button.

    Remember in this event you keep spinning when you press the action button
    so you need to start it in a good position so you can get good degrees by
    the time you are facing the sector. 60m should gain you gold in easy mode.

    Tripple Jump
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^
    You run down a track for a few meters then jump three times trying to get
    as far as you can. Furtherest wins. If you jump too late you foul and if
    you try to jump too high you will also fail.

    Use the power buttons to being running and press the triangle button to
    start the degree of the first jump. When you land the degree display will
    start automatically and you press the action button to stop it. After you
    land that jump you need to do the same once more.

    Start alternating the power buttons as fast as you can to start running
    and press and hold the action button when you are about 3 standing body
    lengths away from the white line Let it go when it reaches 45 degrees.
    If you go over the green line you foul and have to restart. Once you land
    the degree display will start spinning, stop it at 45 degrees once again
    and when you land once more the degree display starts up yet again. Stop
    it at 45 degrees to get a good jump. Stopping the degree display between
    45 and 50 degrees seems to work best. 15.80m seems to be good enough to
    win this event in easy skill.

    High Jump
    ^^^^^^^^^
    Here you set the height at which to jump then run towards the mat. When
    your there you launch yourself into the air and lift your legs up as you
    go (hopefully) over the bar

    Use the cross button to select a height and then start rapidly alternating
    between the power buttons to build some speed up in your run up. Press the
    action button at the mat to jump and when your above the bar press it once
    more to lift your legs.

    Start alternating between the power buttons to being your runup. Gain as
    much speed as possible before you get to the mat. Once your about to go
    onto the green grass press the action button to jump up and over the bar.
    While your in the air press the action button once more to lift your legs
    up. Practice this one, once you have found the right takeoff point just
    practice your button bashing at gaining speed to get very good heights
    like 2.20m+. Usually the computer players only make it to 1.87m in easy
    which is very easy to beat if you get your takeoff done at the right
    time.

    Skeet Shooting
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    This a fun event after a while even though the gun is a bit unrealistic.
    You go through eight different stations where you get to test your aim
    in shooting skeets.

    Press the action button here to launch a skeet. You then have to use the
    D-Pad to move the gun lining it up with the skeet. Press any of the fire
    buttons to shoot the gun.

    Fire at the skeets too see how many you can hit out of 25 shots. When the
    sight goes white it means that you are aiming at a skeet, your reactions
    are probally too slow to be able to react this so try to get your gun
    lined up with the skeet and predict the shot, tis easier. Usually about
    15 hits will win in easy skill.

    Skeet range map (in the lower right corner)

        ^         ^
    1        8        7
     \               /
      2             6
       \           /
        3----5----4   O O

    The numbers represten the stations. The ^ represent the traingles which
    appear on the map in the lower right corner. The O represent the circles
    that appear on the map in the lower right corner. The ^ show which side
    the skeets are coming from. The numbers by the ^ show which order you need
    to shoot the skeets. When they are green the skeet is still in the air,
    when they go red it means you have hit them. The O show your current ammo,
    if both O are green it means you have two shots, if both are red it means
    you have no ammo. So a green O represent one shot.

    Here is a table of which skeets are launched and where.

    |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    |Station|Skeet Order|Skeet Speed|Notes                                    |
    |      1|L,B(L-R)   |L-S M-F    |Left floats above you, Right floats under|
    |       |           |           |Left skeet.                              |
    |      2|L,B(L-R)   |L-M/S R-M/S|Left floats above you, Right floats under|
    |       |           |           |Left skeet.                              |
    |      3|L,R,B(L-R) |L-M R-M/F  |Left floats above you, Right floats under|
    |       |           |           |Left skeet.                              |
    |      4|L,R,B(L-R) |L-M R-M    |Left floats above you, Right floats under|
    |       |           |           |Left skeet.                              |
    |      5|L,R,B(L-R) |L-M R-M    |Left floats above you, Right floats under|
    |       |           |           |Left skeet.                              |
    |      6|R,B(R-L)   |M-F S      |Left floats above you, Right floats under|
    |       |           |           |Left skeet.                              |
    |      7|B(R-L)     |R-S L-M/F  |Left floats above you and to the right   |
    |       |           |           |Rights floats under left skeet.          |
    |      8|L,R        |L-M/S R-M/F|Both float high above you and both go    |
    |       |           |           |to their opposite sides.                 |
    |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

    The Skeet order: L = Left
                     R = Right
                     B = Both
                    () = The order in which you have to shoot them
    The Skeet speed: L = Left
                     R = Right
                     S = Slow
                   M/S = Medium-Slow
                     M = Medium
                   M/F = Medium-Fast
                     F = Fast

    In this event the gun goes up alot when you shoot. I think it is impossible
    to hit two skeets with one shot. Also note that the gun can fire again
    straight after it is orignally fired, although it dosent seem to hit both
    skeets firing straight away even if you get the second shot close.

    100m Freestyle Swimming
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Swim to the end of the 50m, flip over and return. The fastest time here
    wins. If you false start too many times (twice I think) you get
    disqualified.

    Use the power buttons to swim and press the action buttons to flip over at
    the end of the pool. When you are returning press the action buttons to
    reach for the wall.

    You are allowed a false start here, so use it to your advantage and go
    about five seconds after take your marks. With luck you should get a
    perfect start. If not play it safe the next time, you don't want to get
    disquallified. Once your in the water keep tapping away at the power
    buttons to keep swimming. At the first wall get about 3/4 of a swimmers
    body away from it and press the action button to roll over and swim down
    the home straight. Press the action button again when you reach the end to
    reach your arm out to the wall. 1:05 should be a winning time in easy mode.

    10m Platform Diving
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    The best score after five dives here wins. You are marked on difficulty,
    how well the dive is executed and size of splash.

    Use the Cross button to select a dive. Press the set power button to stop
    the power meter. Then press the buttons corrsponding to the colours on the
    screen.

    This event takes practice to get it right if you want to score big. Start
    off with an easy dive that dosent invole many turns, because when you have
    a dive with many turns you turn fast and it is harder to land vertical in
    the water, thus decreasing your score. Once your better practice the high
    difficulty dives, learn the button combinations and it will be easier. Keep
    practicing till you can get a straight on nearly straight entry into the
    water.

    Select your dive and you will have to set the power. Try to get it as high
    as you can, it makes it alot easier to get a vertical entry into the water
    if you get higher power at the start. Tap the buttons according to the
    colours on the screen. So tap Cross-Blue for the swirl which is also blue
    ect. Make sure you have finished turning on the last move before pressing
    the button to starighten up your diver or else it is just too easy to get
    that embarrising (and painful) horozontial entry. About 230 points here
    should be enough to win in easy skill.

    Note: I will make a list of all the dives and button combinations once I
          have completed the other events and/maybe the olympic training
          section also.

    Super Heavyweight Weight Lifting
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    In Super Heavyweight Weight Lifting you have to lift the highest weight in
    order to win.

    Rapidly tap the power buttons to build up power. Press the action button to
    lift the weight up at the first mark and press it once more when you lifter
    automatically stands up.

    To start this event I recommend you lift the weight it gives you, to get
    the feel of this event. It can be difficult knowing what to do and annoying
    wondering why your guy keeps dropping the weight when you press the action
    button so I have explained it below.

    Once you have selected your weight the 30 second time will start, you have
    to have the weight lifted before it runs out or you get disquallified.
    Start pressing the power buttons alternativly to get strength to lift the
    weight. Once it gets to the first line on the power meter you will hear a
    beep, press the action button now while continuing to rapildy tap the power
    buttons. You lifter will stand up at the second mark and another beep will
    play soon after, once again press the action button to lift the weight
    above your head. Keep tapping the power buttons until all three lights by
    the timer have lit up. 230kg usaully wins in easy, however 235kg may be
    required.

    Sprint Cycling
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Here three cyclists startand they race against another three cyclists at
    the same time trying to get the fastest time. After each lap a cyclist
    drops off.

    Rapidly tap the power buttons here to build up speed.

    This event is probally the hardest event for me as I find it difficult to
    pace myself, although watching the computer I have learned how to win.
    Start the race at about 20m/s and slow down to about 14m/s after the first
    half lap, slow down a bit more as long as the other team dosent get too far
    ahead of you. After the first lap put on a bit of speed, up to about 18m/s
    until you get to the half lap line, then slow down enough so you have about
    4/6 of the energy bar full for the final lap. In the final lap go as fast
    as you can tap the power buttons to win here. Try to make sure your ahead
    just before the final lap, as it seems to be hard to win if your behind,
    unless the other team runs out of energy. 46 seconds should be enough for
    you to win here.

    Kayak K1 Slalom
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    You have to race down the river in this event pasing through the gates that
    you come to.

    Use the forwads button (defaults to cross) to go forward and the backwards
    button (defaults to sqaure) to go backwards. Use the avoid buttons to make
    your kayakier try to avoid hitting the gates.

    This event can be quite tricky at first as the controls are not very
    responsive but you will be able to get the hang of it. Press the forward
    button to make your kayakier go forwards and try and line yourself up
    infront of the gates, take note of which way the water is flowing, it will
    help you. Make sure you go through the gate without hitting the sides or
    you will encur a penality. If you think you might hit a side press the
    avoid button to make your kayakier try and avoid the side.

    While you are kayaking you may notice different colour gates. The green
    gates you have to take downstream (the normal way) and the red gates you
    have to take upstream (the abnormal way). Make sure you go through these
    gates in the correct way or you will encur a penality.

    Penalities
      2 Points : for hitting a gate
     50 points : per gate you miss
     50 points : for going the wrong way through a gate.

    Note: When I get round to it I will make a map of all the different kayak
          courses and show which way you have to go through the gates.
