Vigilante 8 - N64 By - Activision ESRB Content Rating - [ T ] Teen, Ages 13+ FAQ by - ShAdOwX (a.k.a. Shadow Vejito) FAQ Version - 0.1 Date - March 27,1999 (3/27/99) Last Update Was - March 27,1999 (3/27/99) Contact - -------------- Contents - -------------- [1.] Updates [2.] Walkthrough [3.] Codes (Passcodes) [4.] FAQ's [5.] Contact -------------- [1.] Updates - -------------- Version 0.1 FAQ Release Starting Work on Walkthrough (Not up yet) Have All Codes That Have Been Released So Far -------------- [2] Walkthrough -------------- NOTE - There's No Order in Which You Have To Do the Stages in so I'm just putting The Easiest First NOTE 2 - The Objectives Are Depending On What Car You Use. I Have Not Tried Every Car on Every Difficulty so you will have To Figure It out Yourself. This Walkthrough Will Not Tell You How To Beat The Stages But Instead Where All The Secret Areas And Green, Brown Boxes (Well Most Of Them) Are. TIP 1 - When You See A Green Box (Special Weapon) On the Ground or In the Air and Have A Good Amount of Life. Go Get It. The Special Is Most Likely To Total Your Enemies. If You Don't Have A Good Amount of Life Go Get A Wrench (Life Up) Then Go Get Special. TIP 2 - If You See A Brown Box, Like TIP 1, Get It. You Have A Good Chance of Getting A Special in It. TIP 3 - When On A Stage That Has An Objective That Wants You To Protect A Certain Area, Instead Don't Protect That Thing or Place. When you run or Move Away From the Place You Have To Protect. The Enemies Will Instead Of Trying to Destroy the Place Will Follow You. As Long As You Keep Away From The Area You Have To Protect And Stay Alive You Will Complete The Mission Easy Unless A Stray Missile Flies Away And Hits The Place (Unlikely But It Has Happened Before). TIP 4 - When On A Stage The Has A Objective That Wants You To Destroy A Place, Destroy That Place First Because If You Don't They Might Total You before Even Get A Chance To Get There TIP 5 - If You Have A Big Car Or Vehicle And Have No Weapons, The Best Way To Total Someone Is To Ram (Or Charge) The Enemies Car/Vehicle. Use Some Cars/Vehicle/Space Ship Like Molo, Beezwax, Alien (Secret Character With A Space Ship. Also Very good). TIP 6 - To Get A Whammy Use A Good Variety Or Weapons. Here's A Good Choice: Ram The Enemy, Then Use The Bull's Eye Rockets With The Machine Guns, Then Use The Sky Hammer Mortar With The Machine Guns. Then If Possible Depending On The Special You Got, You Can Use The Special On Them And Depending on How Strong Your Special Is It Should Total The Enemy And Get A 2X Whammy Or Higher If There Is. This Should Be Done When Then Enemy Is Against A Structure Or A Mountain Since The Mortar Doesn't Always Hit When Their Far. Be Creative And Make Some Of Your Own. Think Of The Most Reliable And Strongest Weapons In The Game And Mix It Up With Others To Make Up A WHAMMY!! Well Ok Now That You Read All Of My Annoying NOTES and TIPS, Its Time For The Walkthrough!! ú ø :) Walkthrough Not Complete yet :) ø ú -------------- [3.] Codes (Passcodes) -------------- NOTE 1 - Enter these at the Passcode Screen in Options NOTE 2 - Entering Codes in This Game Will Most Likely Freeze It during Game Play NOTE 3 - The Classified Secret Moves Are Not For Each Characters Special Move but For the Pick up Weapons like the Mines and Mortar.

So To Get This Section Up You Have To Send Me Some Question's and I'll try to post many Of the Good Ones Up. E-mail Me at Why Does My Game Freeze When I Put In LIVING_FOREVER, FIRE NO LIMITS, A MOON GETAWAY, MISSILE ATTACK (Or Something Like That) And On The Hoover Dam Or Ski Resort Stage? I Personally Don't Know Why. I Guess it's Another Glitch in the Game Like All Other Games. Well I guess that's what you get when you Port Playstation games. Why Do I Get Stuck On Something like A Rock or Mountain? The Reason Is Simple. Someone Either Hit You Very Very Hard Or Someone Ran Into You And You Got Knocked Back Very Hard And Fast And Hit An Object Which Caused You To Get Stuck. Hey I Been Worst When I Got Stuck Under Water. Why Do I get knocked Off the Stage and Blow Up? First Of All you got knocked Off the Stage because you got totaled. Second You Blown Up before You Got knocked off. Only the Computer can get knocked Off the Stage and Come Back Alive and Undamaged. How Do You Access To Alien " Y "? You Have To Beat the Game with everyone including the Hidden Characters (Molo etc.). Then You Use Y to Beat the Secret Base. How Do You Access the Super Dreamland 64? Beat the Secret Base with Alien " Y " (This Stage Can Only Played in Multi, Arcade, and Survival.) Why doesn't The 4MB Work? It Does Work but You Can Hardly Notice It. The 4MB Expansion Doesn't Quite Work With This Game Too Well. I would say that it makes it Worse. The 4MB Slows the Frame Rate Up A Little. It Makes the Loading of the Stages A Little Longer. It Also Freezes the Game A lot More That Usual (Without The 4MB). I don't use the 4MB. I'm not telling you know To but I'm just saying it Makes This Great Game Worst. To see The 4MB Effect Work Better Put In MAX_RESOLUTION as A Passcode. I Think This Code Makes Less Freezes And Frame Rate Normal And The Graphics Just A Little Poppy (As In Brighter). NOTE - Don't Send Me Hate Mail Saying That The Statement I Made Was False And That It Does Make The Game A Whole Lot Better. This Was Just Through My Eyes and My Opinion. I Saw That The Game Was Much Slower. -------------- [5.] Contact -------------- If You Have Any Questions or Ideas to Make This F.A.Q Better E-mail Me at or Use ICQ# 30875054.
