While playing a game if you decide you would
like to try out another race, but you don't quite
feel like giving up your 20+ hours of work then
just follow this little trick. Load up the game
and as you are playing with your main char hit X,
Y, A, B, Start to reset the system. Now start a
new game with whatever name, and race you desire.
Your new guy will have as many EXP as the
previous one, but you have to kill one Armada
ship for each level you had previously gained.
The only down side is all the credits you
previously had will be lost, and the ultra techs
will be gone. But, if you do some trading with a
friend beforehand you can keep the UltraTech as
Easy Money/Level Ups
First, once you have a ship roughly level 16 go to the planet a -9000, 6000, here you can get tons of money, since you get more money on planets than in space, and you can level up pretty fast as well. Once you get to high enough levels (32 - 40, that will take a while) than go to the secret base. there you can by this item called The Armada Disruptor (the base is roughly at -29000, 31000. with the disruptor all small ships die from one shot and all large ships from 4 shots, no matter what level they are. this way you can take a level one ship somewhere that the enemies are like level 32 and kill them with one hit, you will level up really fast.
Continue Game Play
Press Start on controller two immediately after your last ship explodes to continue game play. Then, have player two quit the game and player one will be able to continue.
When you finish escorting a ship to its destination, stay with it after you are paid. The ship and the others will destroy enemies for you, leaving credits behind. At times, you can receive 200 to 300 credits before returning home.
