Well after completing you initiation in the GG spray crew, you'll gain entry into the GG's hideout. Here you'll be given many differant options: Level Selections (Manual p.17), Tag Options (Manual p. 19), Options (Manual p.26), Internet (Manual p. 27). Section 1: Selecting Create-a-tag To get to Create-a-tag mode, you're first going to have to select Tag Options (it looks like the default mid-sized tag, if you flip the GG's hideout you'll find it). Once you have found the Tag options, select it; doing so will bring you to a new menu. The first option in the menu is "Tag Selection" to see all the tags you have collected, downloaded and created (we'll talk more about this later on in Section 5), and the second option is Tag Creation. Section 1a: Size Matters After selecting Create-a-tag mode you'll be prompted what size you would like (example shown in the game is: Sample) From left to right: -Small (1 can of spray paint in the game) -Large (3-4 cans of spray paint in the game) -Xtra Large (5-9 cans of spray paint in the game) Hit A button to selecte size Section 1b: Stoke the keys After selecting the size of tag you wish to create, you'll be taken to a keyboard, (the diagram below shows you the order of the keys and what they do) Here you can type out your tag and pick Paint or Shape to modify the text; or Skip stright to Paint to make it from scratch (Section 3). You'll be limited to 7 characters (Roman, Katakana or both) on any of the 3 sizes.

It will prompt you with a yes or no question. Then what memory card you wish to save to. Then it will send you back to the GG's hideout. Section 5: Using/Selecting Tags To use the tag you just created, you must select the one you're going to use. Create-a-tag option then Tag Selection. Once you enter Tag selection you notice 3 boxes. From top to bottom it's Small, Large and Extra Large. After you selected the type, you can the pick your tag. G are tags found in the game (orange means you have them, grey mean you need to find them), U are user created tags. Select this one to use your tag in the game. DL are downloaded tags. Section 6: DL Tags In either the US Web Browser or the Japanese Passport browser navigate to a page containing a JPEG image that you'll want to use as your tag. Note: GIFs, PNGs and other graphics file formats will not work, the image must be in JPEG form. If you've created your own tag in a bitmap editing program then you'll need to upload it to the web in JPEG file format with whatever software you would normally use to do this. It's easiest to build a web page with that image on it and upload the page and the image. Once you've navigated to the page containing your custom tag position the pointer over the image using the analog stick and then press the X and A buttons simultaneously. A dialog will appear asking if you'd like to save this image to a memory card with: _________________________________________ | | | | | ______ | | Do you wish to save | | this image? | | ------ | | | |_________________________________________| | [Yes] / [No] | | | ---------------------------------------- Note: images that you're going to use as tags should be very, very small. Under 15K would be good. A 20K file will take up approximately 45 blocks. Save this file onto the same card that contains your Jet Set Radio game data. Restart your Dreamcast, load your saved game and then follow the instructions in Section 5: Using/Selecting tags.
