These are the primary options of Ridge Racer:

World Tours
===========

  The main part of the game. This is where you unlock courses and cars for use
  in Single Race, Time Attack, and Wireless Battle. You can only participate in
  the Baisc Tour at first, but more tours will become unlocked as you progress
  through the game. If you don't feel like racing in the main tours, there is
  a Create-a-Tour option that allows you to customize a tour just for fun. You
  cannot, however, unlock anything by playing custom tours.

Single Race
===========

  Using the cars and courses you've unlocked in the World Tour, you can enjoy
  a leisurely race at your favorite track or practice in a hardcore Class and
  course that you can't beat in World Tour.

Time Attack
===========

  Just your car, a course and the clock. Get a feel for a course without having
  to worry about other drivers, or try to beat your previous lap times for
  a challange. Each Trial is 3 laps.

Wireless Battle
===============

  Think you're pretty good, huh? Well, letís see what happens when you move
  from the realm of artificial intelligence to real inte-... well... people.
  Race up to eight others wirelessly using the Ad Hoc Mode Wi-Fi feature of
  your PSP. You can either host a race or search for one in progress.

Options
=======

  This is where you can change a few of the games options, but more importantly
  play the badass Mini-Game if you're tired of all those modern graphics and
  sounds.

Note: All the Basic and most of the Pro tours are pretty easy seeing as how
      only 3 cars are unlocked at any given time, pretty much limiting all
      your options. If it makes any difference, I usually ride with the DYN
      Type Drift car, but it's really just a matter of personal taste. Later
      on, when things get more difficult, check each tour's section for info
      on how to clear it.

PRO 19: CRINALE DUEL

   Class 6

   Unlocked By: Completing Pro 14
   Unlocks: EX 33, EX 34, Special Class Crinale, Downtown Rave City [R]

   Finally, the time has come. This Class 6 tour is comprised of 4 one-on-one
   against the Soldat Crinale, also known as the "Devil."

     Race 1: Downtown Rave City       (Finish 1st to advance)
     Race 2: Downtown Rave City [R]   (Finish 1st to advance)
     Race 3: Midtown Expressway       (Finish 1st to advance)
     Race 4: Midtown Expressway [R]   (Finish 1st to clear tour PRO 19)
 
Note: This is quite a change from what we've been used to. The only hope of
      winning all these duels is to use the Hyper Knight Raggio Type-R and
      use lots of boost. The general thing that worked for me was to use
      boost periodically to keep up with and maybe pass him, then save two
      units for the final stretch on the final lap. In Downtown Rave City,
      when you get out of the underground tunnel near the end, lay on the
      boost and don't let up. Do the same right before you take the final
      curve after that big jump in Downtown Rave City [R]. Midtown Expressway
      requires you to do it right before the final striped corner (the final
      corner with lines painted on the pavement). And finally, on Midtown
      Expressway [R], do it as soon as you come out of the tunnel and into
      that long, wide, and uneven sweeping left corner. All these are hard,
      but doable.

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

PRO 20: ANGELUS DUEL

   Class 6

   Unlocked By: Completing Pro 14
   Unlocks: EX 38, Special Class Angelus

   Drive a Class 6 machine to defeat the Katama Angelus, also know as "Angel."
   Race at the speed of light through all 4 races and the Angelus could be
   yours!

     Race 1: Greenpeak Highlands      (Finish 1st to advance)
     Race 2: Seaside Route 765        (Finish 1st to advance)
     Race 3: Lakeside Parkway [R]     (Finish 1st to advance)
     Race 4: Seaside Route 765 [R]    (Finish 1st to clear tour PRO 20)

Note: These are real tough. In fact, you may wish to go into
      some EX races and unlock a few Type-Z upgrades before seriously 
      attempting this tour. Type-Z with lots and lots of boost is the ticket. 

      The key to victory is to stay back. Do not try to race the Angules like
      you did the Crinale last tour. The Angules has a habit of letting off
      massive amounts of boost when a rival car is near, so you might as well
      save all that boost you'd use to catch back up for later.

      So, you should stay back and store up boost, making it so you have 3
      full tanks on the last lap. It's okay to use an occasional boost if you
      feel the Angelus is getting too far ahead (maybe by 2 or 3 seconds), but
      make sure you have that 3 on the last lap. Then, about a quarter of a
      lap away from the finish, unload everything you've got. All this boost
      should catch him unprepared, allowing you to rocket by and cross the
      finish line before he boosts back. Also let it be known that an INTIMATE
      knowledge of every little tiny twist and turn of the course is required
      to keep up with the Angelus, let alone pass it.
      
      Good luck!!

PRO 21: EAT UP OR DIE

   Class 6

   Unlocked By: Completing Pro 18
   Unlocks: Pac-Man Car, EX 35

   A 2-round series in Class 6. your opponent is that little yellow guy.
   Since his debut in 1980, Pac-Man has eaten, and eaten, and eaten! He has
   consumed several hundred million dots by now! The next dot could be you.

     Race 1: Ridge City Highway       (Finish 1st to advance)
     Race 2: Crystal Coast Highway    (Finsih 1st to clear tour PRO 20)

Note: Okay, this announcer is just creepy. Pac-Man is probably the most
      trouble-free Special car to get. Just use the Hyper Knight Type-R, and
      like the previous Special tours, lay on the boost and drift every chance
      you get. Do this, and the little yellow guy's car will soon be yours.

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

PRO 22: THE ARCHANGEL

   Class Special

   Unlocked By: Completing Pro 15
   Unlocks: EX 36, Kamata Type-Z Tune-up Kit

   A 3-round, Special Class tour against a pack of ANGELUS.

     Race 1: Crimsonrock Pass         (Finish 3rd or better to advance)
     Race 2: Ridge City Highway [R]   (Finish 2nd or better to advance)
     Race 3: Diablo Canyon Road [R]   (Finish 1st to clear tour PRO 22)

Note: Not nearly as fustrating as the duels, this tour should be moderatly easy
      now that you can use the Special cars. I used Pac-Man, with his tons of
      boost. The key is, of course, to use that boost any time the Nitrous
      guage fills. The final race may take you a few times, as you have to
      drive the track almost perfectly to have any chance, but overall this
      tour shouldn't be too exasperating. Don't forget to use the Jump-Start
      technique for an extra edge.

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

PRO 23: DEVIL'S MARCH

   Class Special

   Unlocked By: Completing Pro 17
   Unlocks: Soldat Type-Z Tune Kit

   A 4-round, Special Class tour against the devils.

     Race 1: Union Hill District [R]  (Finish 4th or better to advance)
     Race 2: Crimsonrock Pass [R]     (Finish 3rd or better to advance)
     Race 3: Greenpeak Highlands [R]  (Finish 2nd or better to advance)
     Race 4: Union Hill District      (Finish 1st to clear tour PRO 23)

Note: This is it. The final Pro tour, and it couldn't be easier. The key to
      winning this tour is the Kamata Angelus. If you haven't yet unlocked it,
      do so. Without the Angelus, this tour, especially the last two races,
      are almost impossible. Unlock the Angelus, use lots of boost, don't hit
      any other cars and you should be fine.

Note: This is it, the final tour of the main game!! For all their talk, this
      tour is almost disappointingly easy (don't worry, if you want to get
      your ass handed to you just hold on... you'll see). To win I just used
      an Angelus, and pretty much blew by the entire field within two laps.
      Standard rules apply: no hitting other cars, know what's coming up on
      the track et cetra et cetra. Once you've completed all the EX tours, the
      MAX tour will be unlocked. When they say it's hard, believe them this
      time.


*********************************************
                   MAX TOUR
************************************* QFMX **

Note: The MAX tours only appear in the US version of the game, not the JPN.

Note: These tours are hard, almost impossible. You will not win ONE of them
      the first time you try. If you're the kinda person who throws their
      controller against the wall when you reach a particularly frustrating
      part of a game, stay away from these tours. You're controller costs
      10 times as much now. For those of you dedicated or insane enough to
      wanna go ahead, all I can offer you is a wish of good luck and these
      vague tips: 

      1) Try your best to keep up. Easier said then done by far, I know, but
         if you're 10 seconds behind the lead car on the final lap, you're not
         gonna win.

      2) Use boost to get around cars. These cars have unlimted boost, and
         sometimes they can rocket off with no boost at all. As soon as you
         boost, the others most likely will too. This is where Tip #3 comes in.

      3) Block. Use your rear-view mirror in first person view. Once you get
         past a car, it will try anything and everything to get by you again.
         If you block it, you'll get its speed which will help you with Tip #1.

      4) Balance the boost. Try to use as much as you can to keep up and pass
         the other guys, but make sure you have 3 full tanks on the final lap
         with the finish line coming up. You'll most likely be racing the lead
         car by then. Use your boost to get by him a little bit from the
         finish line. He'll fire off boost and will try to pass you. Keep
         firing off your boost as soon as the previous tank is empty. Then
         Tip #3 his ass if he trys anything funny.

      That's not much I'm afraid. There isn't some special secret that will
      let you blow by the competition; it's basically pure luck more then
      anything else. Some races you have a chance, and some, even if you do
      everything perfect and break every course record, you don't. Try these
      tips and stay at it, and eventually you will be Ridge Racer champion!

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

Drift Type Key:
===============

   STD = Standard: No distinctive characteristics, but well-balanced for easy
                   drifting.

   MLD = Mild: Difficult to maintain drifts over long streches, but drifts are
               easy to exit.

   DYN = Dynamic: Drifts are highly maneuverable and easy to maintain without
                  losing much speed, but require percise control to exit.

   SPL = Special: The Drift Type of Special machines. It's hard to pin down,
                  but the best way I can describe it is Mild at slow speeds
                  changing into Dynamic the faster you go.

Tips:  Overall, this is a pretty balanced course, mixing its share of high
       speed straight aways, long drift corners, sharp short drift corners,
       and a few "fake outs." These are corners that look like they'll be
       sharp, but only last a fraction of a second. Let off the gas for these,
       but do not drift them, doing so will cause you to lose you speed.
       The course is wide all around and will give you plenty of room to pass
       the competition when the need arises.

Tips:  Full of short drifts, making passing a little difficult. The road is
       usually wide enough to get around a car by drifting another line, but
       it is still harder then just passing on a straight away. You will
       always have the analogue nub pushed one direction or the other. Also,
       take note of the narrow, curving, high-speed tunnel near the end [1-2].
       Do not attempt to pass in here, as it is usually too fast or narrow.

Tips:  The counterpart of Crimson Rock Pass is a little harder, but not much.
       It is a little narrower in places, but still gives you plenty of room
       to pass on the high speed straights. More long sweeping drifts, you may
       wish to consider a DNY drift car, especially because of the long, 360
       degree right-hander that can give you more than a full tank of boost if
       you hit it going fast enough [1]. Also note when you're coming up to the
       finish line that there is a steep downhill series of S curves [2-3] that
       have to be negotiated perfectly to prevent hitting the wall and losing
       speed.

Tips:  My favorite course! Pure fun! This is a course that has no real speed
       restrictions. The road is wide, the corners mild and flowing, and the
       straight-aways long. Everything is designed for speed. Which is why it
       is important not to hit any cars or walls to slow yourself down. Fire
       off some boost after the first left-hand corner before the big
       jump [1]. The faster you go when you hit it the more awesome it is.
       A good way to get boost is to stay in one long drift through the
       series of 3 turns after the huge jump [2-3], and drift in the
       underground tunnels, which are also a good place to fire off some
       boost [4-5].

Tips:  My least favorite course. Greenpeak Highlands features many corners
       that won't make your machine go into a drift, but are too sharp to take
       at full speed, causing you to hit the wall and be passed. Also, be
       cautious of S-curves that tempt you to drive through the grass
       to avoid them, as there are usually sand traps [1, 2, 4] on either side
       of the course, causing your car to slow down and lose speed. There are
       also many weird uphill drifts that would be impossible in real life [3].
       This is one of those courses that requires memorization for any chance
       to win.

Tips:  A pleasant course with few, if any, really tricky parts. Be sure to
       give the other cars plenty of room when you pass, because this course
       is pretty high speed. Also, be careful about a half of a lap in, as it
       narrows into a two lane stretch for a while, making passing extremely
       difficult [1-2]. Other then that, be sure to take the gentle curves
       for all the drift they have, and fire your nitrous off primarily on the
       long straight by the finish line [3].

Tips:  The counterpart of Downtown Rave City, Midtown Express is almost as fun
       and just as easy. The only things to look out for are the series of
       staircase jumps near the beginning [1-2]. Make sure you hit the first
       one going straight or you'll most likely be slipping every which way
       trying to correct. Also, about half way through, the course narrows
       and becomes a little harder with small sharp turns [3-4], but they
       shouldn't be that much trouble.

       *************************************************

Tips:  Starts off easy with wide shallow corners to drift on, and a straight
       away afterwards to let off some of that acquired boost [1]. Be careful
       of the S-curve located halfway through the straight away [2]. The
       second half is slightly more difficult. It has quite a few tricky
       corners, forcing you to choose a pretty limited line in order to avoid
       hitting a wall [3-4]. Because of this, it may be hard to pass in
       those areas because your opponents are also taking that line. Overall
       though, not a very hard course.

Tips:  A short fast track with mild, easy drifting corners. Use your boost on
       main straight away by the finish line [1] or the second one located
       half way into the lap [2]. Be careful on that one though, as there is an
       S curve that must be attacked from the left to maintain speed through
       it [3]. Other then that, be sure to drift through all the corners and
       enjoy the ride on this quick, high speed track.

Tips:  Be careful of the second right corner after you start [1] - it
       straightens out only to quickly turn right again in the tunnel, 
       then left. Take this area in one long drift to obtain maximum boost.
       Later on, watch out for the sharp, 90 degree right turn onto the
       dam [2], and the S-curve [3] leading into the tunnel. It is possible
       to take this corner without slowing down or drifting if you stay to
       the left. After you take a left after the tunnel, make sure your car
       is pointed slightly right when you hit the big jump [4] to make sure
       you're lined up with the finish line.

Tips:  Very similar to Seaside Route 765, the first few corners are almost
       identical. This course is not as fast however, and there are some
       tricky corners to watch out for. Namely the sharp corner at the wide
       open part near the sea [1], and before you enter the final tunnel [2].
       The long steady semi-circle corner is a great place to aquire boost [3].
       Also, there are fewer places to use boost, so you may wish to unload
       1 or 2 when you get to the main straight-away [4].

Tips:  This is a very fast track with lots of places to make mistakes.
       Make sure that after the first corner you're pointed straight ahead
       quickly, as there is a jump [1] then a sharp corner followed by a steep
       up-hill climb [2]. The speed you get through the corner is the speed you
       will be going all the way to the top of the hill. You can either make
       up or lose lots of time in this part. It can be hard to tell until the
       last minute, but you want to take a right in the tunnel. After the
       tunnel is a long up and down narrow straight away [3]. Fire off the
       boost when you're going downhill- it won't help you at all going up.
       Also use caution when passing cars here, because of the narrowness.
       After the second tunnel is a tricky corner that is hard left but turns
       into hard right in the middle [4], prepare your drift accordingly.

)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) QF08
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Getting a jump on the start, submitted by J. Theal:
        
        It appears that you can get the speed boost at the beginning
        of any race, as long as your needle is above 6 but below the
        red (over-rev) zone on the tachometer at the exact moment the
        announcer finishes the ...3 ...2 ...1... countdown and says
        "GO!" The needle can be trending up or down (accelerating or
        decelerating RPMís) at that moment.

- In a continuation of the above tip: Since the Rally X car doesn't have an
  RPM range where it redlines, it's kinda hard to find the right spot for you
  to get a boost at the start. However, if you keep the RPM meter just above
  the number 12, you can start off at around 114 MPH or so. This leads to a
  pretty nice jump on the compitition.

- Do not hit other cars. Doing so will cause you to "switch speeds." For
  example, if you hit a car moving 130 MPH while going 170 MPH, the car
  you hit will get your speed (170) while you get its speed (130). Therefore
  the hit car will leave you in the dust, and it could take (in later stages)
  a quater of a lap or more to get caught back up. Not fun if it's the first
  place car and the finish line is right ahead of you.

- In the later stages, to avoid hitting another car while in a drift (which
  could potentially cost you the race) try going into a drift either late or
  early. Since you have very limited control in a drift, going in early or late
  will (hopefully) put you on a different line then the car in front of you,
  allowing you to pass him easy and painlessly.

- The nitrous gauge will fill up by performing drifts. The faster the drift,
  the faster the gauge will fill up.

- The nitrous gauge cannot be filled while nitrous is in use, but by utilizing
  the increased speed immediately after a nitrous boost, it is possible to
  recharge the nitrous quickly.

01: RAVE RACER DEMO MOVIE

  About: This is the opening movie of the arcade game Rave Racer, released in
         1995. Many fans will remember the pink arcade cabinet and the female
         polygon character. We have searched high and low in our archives to
         find her name, but it remains shrounded in mystery.

  Unlocked By: Completing tour EX 36

  Note: J. Govoni sent in an interesting note about the above info:

           "I worked for Namco's arcade division in the late 90's, and
           the polygon girl in the Rave Racer intro is widely regarded
           as Reiko Nagase. Like you said, she made her "CG" debut in
           Rage Racer, but this girl is still considered Reiko. She
           didn't really have a name when Rave Racer was released, but she
           was given the name after Rage Racer was made. Reiko is not the
           girl from the beginning of the Ridge Racer/Ridge Racer 2 races."

05: MACHINE DESIGN COLLECTION 1

  About: All vehicles featured in Ridge Racer are desinged by Namco, and do
         not exist in reality. Therefore it was very difficult to create
         designs that are convincing, pleasing to the eye, and above all
         else, cool. Included here are some of the sketches that were drawn
         up during the devlopment of these fine cars.

06: MACHINE DESIGN COLLECTION 2

  About: When designing the cars for Ridge Racer, we employed the assistance
         of actual car designers who have designed sports cars in the past.
         Perhaps you can see that from these preliminary design sketches.

07: MACHINE DESIGN COLLECTION 3

  About: With rising concerns over eniromental pollution, aerodynamic designs
         are becoming mainstream in the real world. These fuel efficient cars
         are not necessarily the best looking cars you have seen. In video
         games, however, cars can be designed purely for the looks. The cars
         in Ridge Racer have within them the "supercar dream", which can only
         take place in a video game.

Wireless Battle With One Copy of the Game
-----------------------------------------

- Only have one copy of Ridge Racer, but wanna play against a friend? No 
  problem! Ya just gotta do some old fashioned UMD swapping. Whenever you
  take the UMD out of the PSP, it will ask you if you would like to quit
  the game. Say "No" obviously. Here's how to set it up:

   1) Player 1 boots up the game and selects Host Race under the Wireless
      Battle option. Set up the race and announce it.

   2) Give the UMD to Player 2. Have him boot up the game and search for
      host (he should detect Player 1 if everything is set up right). Have
      him set up, and have Player 1 select Start Race. Both screens should
      go black.

   3) Give the UMD back to Player 1. After a while, the "Loading" screen
      should appear on both PSPs. When Player 1 has loaded the game, give
      Player 2 the UMD

   4) Player 2's game should load eventually. When both games are loaded, the
      3..2..1...Go! countdown should appear, and the race will begin. Enjoy!

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

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

Q: How do you watch replay data after you save it?

A: I've gotten some email about this, as well as seen it on the message boards.
   I admit when I first tried to find it, I was stumped too. Namco hid it deep
   in the Options menu, under the AVPlayer sub-menu, then Load Replay Data is
   the second option on the right under the Courses sub-sub-menu. Sounds
   confusing, ne? Basically it's:

   Options -> AVPlayer -> Courses -> Load Replay Data

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

Q: Why aren't there any Max tours in my game?

A: You probably have the Japanese version, which does not have Max tours. If
   you have the American version, make sure all 39 tours are completely
   completed.

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

Q: What's the best car in the game?

A: I would say either the Pac-Man or the Angelus, depending on the situation.
   Pac-Man is good at drifting on curvy courses like Greenpeak Highlands,
   while the Angelus excels at high speed tracks such as Downtown Rave City.

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

Q: How many Tours are in the game?

A: 39 Regular Tours and 7 MAX Tours, adding up to 46 Tours overall.

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

Q: How many cars are in the game?

A: 54 regular (9 in each of the 6 Classes) and 4 Special machines, adding up to
   a grand total of 58 available cars.

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

Q: How many courses are in the game?

A: There are 12 original courses, each with a reversed counterpart, making 24
   "different" courses available.

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

Q: What's all that gibberish at the bottom of the screen when I load up
   World Tour mode?

   Example: WT46.CS24.CR/9/9/9/9/9/9.SP.4.PC+
            WF001.D2485K/1544M.C+

A: A very criptic way of revealing your progress in the game. The periods
   break up each section. They mean:

     Piece           | Meaning
     ----------------|------------------------------------------------------
   - WTxx            | The number of World Tours you've unlocked so far
   - CSxx            | The number of courses you've unlocked so far
   - CR/x/x/x/x/x/x  | The number of cars you've unlocked in each of the six
                     |   classes. CR/Class 1/Class 2/Class 3/ etc...
   - SP.x            | The number of special machines you've unlocked so far
   - PC +/-          | A boolean denoting whether or not you've completed all
                     |   the main tours
   - WFxxx           | The number of Wi-Fi races you've completed

   - C +/-           | A boolean denoting whether or not you've completed the
                     |   MAX tours

Q: What are the differences between the North American and Japanese versions
   of the game?

A: From what I understand they are pretty much identical excpet for a few 
   things:

   1) The title. Ridge Racer in the United States, Ridge Racers in Japan. Why
      Namco Hometek saw fit to remove the "s" is beyond me.

   2) There are no MAX tours in the Japanese release.

   3) The names of most of the Tours are different. Here's a nice easy quick-

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

I would like to thank, in no particular order (well, maybe by version):

-  for the information on the Rave Racer opening
  movie.

-  for the New Rally-X car's jump start tip.

-  for providing me with the names of the Japanese
  World Tours.

-  for pointing out that you only need to
  complete Tour 18 for the credits to be unlocked.

- My friend Garth Rominger  for allowing me to
  screw around with his PSP to figure out the Wireless Battle w/ 1 UMD trick.

- Mr. Jeremy Theal (WiggLe) for sending some helpful tips (more helpful then
  anything I up!) and pointing out that you need to beat tour PRO 18 before
  the Rally-X car becomes available.

- GhostOfLegault, for creating the badass RIDGE RACER ASCII Art you see at the
  top of this document. Thanks man!

- Namco and Namco Hometek for this awesome lauch title. What a great way to
  start off a system!

- Sony, for making the PSP. I had my doubts at first, but they all vanished
  the second I booted that sexy little rectangle up. Just when I was getting
  over the PS2, Sony has to go and get me in their clutches for another
  5 years >:O

- You, for reading and (hopefully) getting some use out of this document. The
  only reason I did this was for you. Yes, you, right there. No... no, not that
  guy behind you... YOU.

- Gamefaqs.com and CJayC for hosting this and the thousands of other guides
  out there.


           Welp, this is the end. I'd just like to remind you all:
