Cool Cool Toon FAQ and Walkthrough v0.3.5



By Nicholas Allen Freeman
October 7, 2000



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



Cool Cool Toon is a
Dreamcast GD-ROM by SNK Japan.

It does work with the Gameshark CDX on US
Dreamcasts.

It supports VGA cables, Vibration Packs,
Maracas(!), the Internet, and a connection to
the Neo Geo Pocket Color.  VMU saves take 4 to 8 
blocks.



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

Revisions

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



v0.1 - 1st version of FAQ, 8-22-2000

v0.2 - 2nd version of FAQ, 8-24-2000.  Notation for
Yussa Yussa and Kamimo Kamimo (2.5.1.1) and Kamimo Kamimo!
(2.5.1.2) added, plus first Notty (Bakudan Kun, 2.5.1.4).
Notation takes forever (no real pause), so expect the 
harder/faster levels to take a while.  Please tell me if
any of the notation is transcribed incorrectly (as if you're
actually going to check it).

v0.3 - 3rd version of FAQ, 8-26-2000.  Completed Story Mode
descriptions for Amp and Spica, added Episodes 5 and 6 for each.
Character names and costumes added to Single Flitz (2.6.1)
Song titles, character names and episode titles fixed.  Discussion
of "Kantan" (easy) mode and how it's much more playable. Notation
to come later.

v0.3.5 - Addendum to 3rd version, 10-7-2000.  Fixed small errors,
added some gameplay and costume notes, plus information on CD-ROM
extras.  Notation will probably not be added any time soon, since
no one has asked for more.

Coming Attractions:  Since the Cool Cool Toon part of
this FAQ now has some meat on it, I'm going to shift focus to
Cool Cool Jam for the NGPC.  v0.4 will include lots about CCJ,
plus notation for Notty #2 and #3, as well as detailed
costume descriptions.  It'll probably take me a little while
to complete Single Flitz with every character, but if you want to
know what happens, look in the Contributions section.  I'm
not sure if flitz-by-flitz notation, for Simple and Normal modes,
is necessary or even desirable for the users of this FAQ, so if
you want to see me continue with it, e-mail me and let me know.

Introduction

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



1.1      Legalities

I have no connection to SNK or SEGA, and respect all of their trademarks
accordingly.  This FAQ and all contents are merely supposed to be a 
fannish guide to a great game.  



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



1.2      Game Plot/Story

Cool Cool Toon is a "rhythm" game, playable by one or two players 
concurrently, that takes place in a vivid, three dimensional cartoon world,
named, appropriately enough, Cool Cool Town.  You take the role of Amp, an
earphoned boy, or Spica, a Pippi Longstockingish girl, and are put to the
task of "flitzing" (dancing) up a storm under the tutelage of a rabbit
named Yusa, with the ultimate goal of somehow making things much better
in said town.

"Flitzing" is accomplished by moving the analog stick and pressing one of
the four action buttons in time with the music.  Doing this with skill 
produces on screen pyrotechnics; failing to hit your cues causes the
on-screen characters to stumble and the music to warble, with the
ultimate result being the dreaded "GAME OVER".

Gameplay specifics are discussed in the next section; while the majority of
the actual game does not require a thorough knowledge of Japanese, parts of
the story mode are rather difficult to follow and complete unless you know
what's going on.  While my knowledge of Japanese is somewhat limited, one
of the main goals of this FAQ is to translate the thorniest parts, with the
ultimate aim of piercing the veil of the text-heavy Story modes.



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



1.3      Quick Review

Cool Cool Toon is quickly becoming one of my favorite games because of its 
deft melding of fast-paced and challenging rhythm action with rather 
remarkable visuals.  It would be a mistake to judge the game on screenshots
alone, or after a simple playtest (say with the Official Dreamcast Magazine,
Japanese version, demo Vol. 6, which is discussed later on).  Compared to
the sweet snack of Space Channel 5 (a fine game in its own right) Cool Cool
Toon is a feast of music and hand-eye coordination that requires some time 
to get used to, but quickly rewards in-depth play with an almost hypnotic 
state of thumb-twiddling and button pushing.  



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

Gameplay

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



2.1      Helpful Translations

While there is a good deal of Roman (ABC) text in Cool Cool Toon, there
is also heaping handfuls of Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji, particularly in
the story mode.  Below are some translations of essential dialogs and text;
more are under section 2.3 (the Options Menu).

1)  When you first start up the game a screen will ask you in Japanese
to pick a memory card.  You are given two choices after doing so, the left
is "Hai" or Yes, and the left is "Iie", or no.  Since the text is in
Hiragana, which you may not understand, just think:

[Yes]      [No]

Later on in the game the language becomes more informal, and the choices
become "Un" (Yes) or "Yada" (No), but the left/right relationship is the 
same.

2)  Once you view the start-up movie and press start, you are asked
to pick a character, either the boy Amp (the left choice) or the girl
Spica (the right choice).  Amp's prologue roughly translates as "From
the inside of the TV comes Yusa" (the rabbit) and Spica's prologue
also mentions rabbits in the title.

3)  Most of the game play is self-evident, but as mentioned before the
story mode contains a huge amount of Japanese text and a fair amount of
speech.  Rough translations will be provided where either appropriate or
achievable (as stated before, Japanese is not my first language).



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



2.2      Control

Cool Cool Toon uses the whole Dreamcast controller, with the following
button and stick/d-pad assignments:

(A, B, X, Y) - During the game a button icon, lettered and with the same
color as on the controller, will appear on the screen somewhere in a 
circular area (usually in the dead center, or in roughly analog clock
positions such as 12 o'clock, 3 o'clock, etc.).  It it your job to
press the correct button, at the correct time, and with your cursor
as close to the button icon as possible.

(Analog Stick) - You move your on-screen cursor towards a button icon
with the analog stick (and only the analog stick, the d-button is
inoperable during "flitzing").

(Left and Right Trigger) - After a certain number of uninterrupted 
"beats" (occasions that you hit on-screen button icons correctly) you
will be given a "Boon Chance", at which time you must press the left
or right trigger once.  If done on time, subsequent correct "beats" will
be worth additional score (to be enumerated at the end of each flitzing).

(Start Button) - Warning!  If you press this during game play, the game
will pause, but you will NOT be able to directly resume where you left off.
The choices will be either to restart the level or to quit the game entirely.
Talk about hardcore....

The "Load" and "Save" choices will bring you to subscreens
which should be fairly easy to navigate.  You will be given
a yes/no choice soon or later, yes is on the left, no is on the
right.



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



2.4      Sample Gameplay and Scoring

"All you have to do" is move the analog stick and press the A, B, X or Y 
buttons where appropriate.  The trick is to wait as long as you can 
before hitting your mark (which will be surrounded by ever-shrinking ovals) 
which will give you a higher rating - Cool being the best, followed by Nice, 
Okay and the one thing you don't want to see too often, Poor, otherwise
known as a big fat red x-ed miss.  

The marks, or "beats", should be hit on a first come, first served basis:  
If an "A" appears on the left, followed by an "A" on the right, go for the 
left "A" first, and then the right "A" second. The shrinking ovals which 
surround each beat serve as clues to which beat you should attack next - 
the closer the ovals are to the beat, the longer it's been on-screen and 
the sooner you should hit it.

At the bottom of the screen there is a colored bar (coolness level
thermometer?) with a mark somewhere to the left of middle.  The better
you Flitz (hit your marks with minimal Poors and maximum Cools) the
farther to the right this bar will go, from 0 (game over) to 9
("Superfly", so to speak, just an inside Amp joke...).  If, when the
level ends and the screen says "Freeze", your coolness thermometer is to
the left of the cut-off, you fail.  To the right, you proceed.  When on
the left, the action slows down and the music thuds; when on the right,
the furniture dances and all hell brakes loose, in a good way.

At the end of each song/level, your Cool, Nice, Okay and Poor marks
are tallied, along with any Boon Chances you've hit.  A Boon Chance comes
along after a string of "direct hits", usually 20 for the first Boon.
When you see the top left of the screen flashing Boon Chance, hit a
trigger and your cursor will turn blue, and you will sparkle.  All
of your subsequent completed beats will bring you extra points,
until you push Poorly.  There are a total of 4 boon chances for each
level.



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



The following is the breakdown for the level ending bonuses:



General Bonus

Cool X 10       Nice X 5       Okay X 1       Poor x 0



Flitz Boon LV 1

Cool X 30       Nice X 15      Okay X 5       Poor x 0



Flitz Boon LV 2

Cool X 50       Nice X 25      Okay X 10      Poor x 1



Flitz Boon LV 3

Cool X 70       Nice X 35      Okay X 15      Poor x 5



Flitz Boon LV 4

Cool X 100      Nice X 50      Okay X 20      Poor x 10



You receive additional bonuses for:

1)  Your Colored Bar Level upon level completion, from 1 to 9, times 300
2)  Your maximum amount of correct beats strung together before getting a
Poor, times 10
3)  Your maximum amount of Boons Levels completed, times 1000



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



Depending on your point level, you receive the ranking of Stone, Bronze,
Silver, Gold, or Platinum.  The cut off for each level is roughly 1000 points
(I'll have to examine the game further to find out the exact range).

An approximate range is the following:

Stone     - 0-1999
Bronze    - 2000-2999
Silver    - 3000-3999
Gold      - 4000-6999
Platinum  - 7000+

Like I said, I'm really not sure of the exact range.  Please email me with
your thoughts/data.



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



Your total store is then converted into "J" points, which can be used to
purchase additional costumes (see below).

During Notty sessions (umm... musical notation, or follow the scrolling
mark and press the right button) all of your end-of-the-round points
go towards your "J" point fund, which is great.  Believe me, it is.



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



2.5      Story Mode

This is the tofu and potatoes of the game, where you flitz through
a prologue and six episodes, from Yusa's house all the way to the 
Flitz Ghost.  You can earn takusan "J" points, too, which provides
bragging rights and the ability to buy extra costumes.

After completing story mode for both characters, you will have
unlocked 27 out of 30 characters in the Single Flitz mode, but
the wide variety of Amp's and Spica's costumes won't be fully 
available - yet.  See 2.6.1 for details.


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



2.5.1    Amp's Story

Below are preliminary notes about Amp's Story mode, with gameplay tips
where appropriate, and rough story translations where remembered.



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



2.5.1.1  Prologue

In a CG rendered cut-scene You (Amp) start out in your house, specifically 
what appears to be a bedroom, watching TV.  It starts to act up, and as
you get up to harass it into submission you see a strange rabbit 
in between the static.  He proceeds to magically jump out of the screen,
knocking you down in the process.  He grabs you and drags you into the TV,
which is a conduit to Cool Cool Town.

What follows is a whole lot of Japanese text, the beginning of which is
greatly summarized thusly:  The rabbit talks, Amp is surprised at this,
the rabbit introduces it/him/herself as Yusa, where upon Amp says some
more stuff and Yusa goes on and on and on about what's happening in Cool
Cool Town and why Amp is the one to make things better (I skipped over
screen upon screen of text just to get at the gameplay, later on I'll 
sit down and figure out what actually was said).

Then, it's time to Flitz, oh yeah!



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

Notation - Please Read!

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



I have set it upon myself to accurately transcribe each and every beat
for each song of the game.  Since after you pause, you have to restart
the level, I have to transcribe a bit, restart, transcribe more, restart
and transcribe..... you get the picture.  It literally takes hours.

Anyway, To understand the notation, you have to think of an analog clock
face, labelled with 12 numbers, and with a 0 in the center:


            12
       11        1
   
    10              2

   9        0        3

     8              4
      
        7        5
             6

Not a perfect circle, but you get the point.  Most beats will fall on
one of these numbers, but some will fall between the 1 and 2 (I'll call
that 1.5), 4 and 5 (4.5), 7 and 8 (7.5) and 10 and 11 (10.5).  Later
on in the game you will get beats all over the place, and so I need
a fine-tuned numbering system that will be a little cumbersome at first.

Anyway, if a beat falls in the center of the screen, and calls for the
letter A just one time, I will use the notation of 0A_1.  If it is to
the right for one beat, 3A_1.  If it's to the center 3 times in a row
with the letter B, 0B_3.  If you think about it, this should make sense.

Often you will see blue arc appear with a smily face on one end.  If the
arc starts at 6 and ends at 3, I will note it as 6arc3.

OK.... so let's try some notation and see what happens (notation is 99 and
44/100 percent pure at this point).

ALL NOTATIONS ARE FOR "NORMAL" DIFFICULTY!  Notations for "Easy"
difficulty will be added soon.


Song 1:  Yussa Yussa

It's you and Yusa and really not that hard. Just go for maximum Cool by 
pressing the A button at the very last moment, as much as possible.
Realize also that to get at a center beat easily, just let go of the 
analog stick - it auto centers!  Really, this is the first major trick 
to the game.

Notation (Normal):

0A_1, 0A_1, 12A_1, 3A_1, 6A_1, 9A_1, 4.5A_1, 7.5A_1, 1.5A_1, 10.5A_1,

10.5A_1, 9A_1, 0A_1, 4.5A_1, 7.5A_1, 0A_4 (end)


When you finish a Story level, it will replay itself over and over (without
on-screen beat notation) until you press the A button.



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



Song 2:  Kamimo Kamimo

A little harder, with some circle action thrown in.  If you see a blue
arc on the screen, start on the smiley-face end when the white wave hits
the edge of the circle, and sweep the analog stick along the circle.
With practice, you'll get it (or you will be miserable for the rest of
the game).

At the end of each episode, you are given the option to save up to that point
(in Japanese, but "yes" is to the left, "no" to the right).  You are also
asked if you want to continue the game, with the same yes/no situation.

2.5.1.1.1   House Options

Now that the prologue is done, you are introduced to some in-game options 
using Yusa's house as a metaphor.  You start out in "bed" mode, which allows
you to watch completed Flitzes.  Specifically, the translations for the
choices are as follows:

Flitz Again Play - Pick a level to play again

Flitz Again Watch - Pick a Level to watch again

Flitz Manabu (Descriptions and Explanations of Flitzing)

"Quitting Time" ? (Yametoku) - Get out of "Bed" mode.

The rest of the room is as follows, from left to right:

1)  Bookcase - Save to VMU, with a yes/no choice.

2)  TV - Play any Notty levels you've completed (at this point in the
game none are available).

3)  Bed - Flitzing choices (see above)

4)  Door - Go outside to other levels (yes/no).  There are six choices, with
Yusa's house on the left.  #2 from the left is the Black Canary store (where
you can buy costumes with J points).  #3 is Orange Park, #4 is the Red
Library, #5 is in the bad side of town (Hapuru Street 27?), and #6 is
King's tower.  4 through 6 are locked at this point.  If you visit
an already completed level, you can interact with the characters,
and they will give you tips in Japanese.

5)  Closet - Pick a costume that you've bought with J's (two available at
start).

If you haven't figured it out, if you want to complete the story mode you
have to select the door and go outside into Cool Cool Town.....

2.5.1.3  Episode 2 - Ranke

Song 5:  Irony - 2nd Half -

You and Yusa go to the Red Library, and find a cool "How to Flitz" book on
the shelves.  But, someone else grabs the book at the same time!  It's Dr 
Stein, one of those borderline evil-geniuses.  He's made a Flitzing robot,
Ranke, but she's having a hard time hitting all of her beats.  Yusa
suggests a Flitz match, but of course you're the one that has to dance.

(notation to come)



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



Song 6:  Irony - 1st Half -

You beat Ranke at Flitzing, got the "How to Flitz" book, and after leaving
the library, Franke shows up at Yusa's house to learn some Flitzing tricks.
So, she watches you and Yusa go at it, in a dancy sort of way.

(notation to come)



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



Song 7:  Irony

It's examination time.  The TV's above everyone even say "final examination",
so you know you have to flitz your heart out against Ranke.

2.5.1.4  Episode 3 - Ival Rival

Song 8:   White Cowboy

For some reason I didn't quite get, you have to go to the bad side of town
and you are accosted by "Ival".  He likes to flitz against girly-boys like 
yourself (quelle surprise).

(notation to come)



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



Notty # 1 - Bakudan Kun

After beating Ival, he runs away but leaves a bomb behind, named 
Bakudan, that grows larger each time you get a poor beat while
following his notation.  Mess up too much and he'll... um... mess
you up as bombs are apt to do, natch.

Notation (Normal):

The order for this Notty at first is AYBXAYBA, (meaning the first pass
uses A, the second Y, etc.) but on subsequent tries the computer
will announce a new order you have to remember.  In that case,
replace the letters marked below with the new order.

Song 10:  Dancing Gravestone

OK then.  You, Ival, and a bunch of rambunctious spooks and spirits
a-hopping.  Flitz your heart out.

(notation to come)



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



2.5.1.5  Episode 4 - High Man, or King

You feel great.  Ival is gone for now, and there's this Flitzing Festival
going on, sponsored by Cool Cool Toon's head honcho, King.  Ival
shows up again, and you follow him through an underground passageway, with
the intention of breaking into King's citadel, so you can take him on like
the Superfly b-boy you have become.



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



Notty # 2 and Notty #3

This is a fairly difficult challenge, especially if you don't understand
written or spoken Japanese.  You have to press the X, A, B and Y buttons
on cue in the following situations:

1)  You are chasing after Ival (Amp's doppleganger/rival) in the 
sewers, and after watching the top of the screen for a scrolling bullet,
you press the button who's color matches said bullet, in time to the music.
The very end involves pressing a button perhaps 15 or 20 times in a row
quickly.

2)  You find yourself in the dark, and have to press a button in time to
the music, depending on how quiet you need to be.  A pattern that will
pass you on to the next challenge (but may not be absolutely perfect),
is the following:

Use the A button for the first notty, the A button for the second notty,
and the X button for the third notty.

This will pass you on to the next challenge which is basically impossible
without tons of trial and error, or a good understanding of Japanese:

3)  You are in front of a machine which will test your worthiness (probably
whether you are human or a robot) by challenging you to match some notty.
The following is the buttons you need to use for each notty to pass the level
(specific notation to come):

A button (top laser), then B button (side laser), then B button (side laser),
then A button (top laser).  Use only that button for each notty pass.

The machine goes crazy, and then speaks really fast, but the gist is, you
have to prove your worth again.

B button, then A button, then X button.  Use only that button for each notty
pass.

If you do this right, you pass on to major Flitzing with King and his crew.

(notation to come)




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



Song 10:  Persone Vicine

You make it to the center of King's tower.  Ival's there too, oh joy.
One of King's "henchmen", Mirror, comes out and talks to you a bit.
But you're not here to talk, you're here to flitz....

(notaton to come)



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



Song 11:  Test.Mid

King says that only adults can be in the Flitz Festival (and you
thought flitzing was for kids...).  So, Ival "gives up the ghost" and
jumps into Amp, making him shoot up like a bean sprout into teenage-
hood.  Then King brings out another henchman, a beefy guy named Dimar,
to join Mirror in a all-out flitz-a-thon....

(notation to come)



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



Song 12:  Incontrare

Now, Mr. King himself, Mr. Cool Cool high and mighty, wants to
get in on the lanky Amp action.  So it's Flitz away (if you can do
this level on Normal difficulty, you rule).

(notation to come)



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



2.5.1.6  Episode 5 - Festival Day

You're a teen, you decide to join the Flitz Festival (the 10,000th
anniversary one), and now you have to meet 4 dance crew challengers,
in front of a huge audience, below a big spider disco ball guy.



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



Song 13:  Dancers Be Ambitious

It's you against the underwater crew, Gil and Lagoona.

Song 15:  Let's Make Funky

2.5.1.7  Episode 6 - "I Ain't Afraid of no Flitz Ghost"

OK.  It's you, Yusa and Teen Ival against the King.  Did you
know that Mirror and Dimar, King's henchmen, were past winners
of the flitz festival?  Does that mean that Amp and Ival, who just
won the flitz festival....<gulp>.  Better flitz some more
over this one....



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



Song 17:  Imperatore

All King, all the time.  Kind of like an advanced Incontrare.

(notation to come)



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



Song 18: Yussa Yussa You

So, you showed King that you got flitz handles, and now he's talking
about this Flitz Ghost.  Plus, you're floating off into space.
And Yusa.... hey, Yusa's all grown up now, and she's a total babe!
Sheesh, didn't see that coming, better flitz her just to make sure.

(notation to come)



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



Song 19:  SHu

Well, this is it.  Everything went all white gray and throbby, and
the Flitz Ghost is here, although he looks like a green Micheline
Man that's about to rob a bank.  If you can flitz it here, you can
flitz it anywhere.  It's up to you, Amp.

(notation to come)



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



Game Over, Yeah!:

Teenage Amp saves the day, and the Flitz Ghost explodes, knocking
him clean out of Cool Cool Town and the TV, back to his room.
Unfortunately, he's a little fly boy again.  He tries to get back
the magical channel to no avail, but just after he loses all hope,
baby Yusa pops back out and grabs him back into the everlasting
world of flitzing and notty.  Brings a tear every time.



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



2.5.2    Spica's Story

Spica's story is basically the same as Amp's:  She is watching TV but it
goes on the fritz, and Yusa pops out to bring her to Cool Cool Town.
Instead of knocking her over, though, he just hops over her head, and
after smiles are passed back and forth, Spica follows him back to CCT
on her own volition.



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

Notation - Please Read!

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



I have set it upon myself to accurately transcribe each and every beat
for each song of the game.  Since after you pause, you have to restart
the level, I have to transcribe a bit, restart, transcribe more, restart
and transcribe..... you get the picture.  It literally takes hours.

Anyway, To understand the notation, you have to think of an analog clock
face, labelled with 12 numbers, and with a 0 in the center:


            12
       11        1
   
    10              2

   9        0        3

     8              4
      
        7        5
             6

Not a perfect circle, but you get the point.  Most beats will fall on
one of these numbers, but some will fall between the 1 and 2 (I'll call
that 1.5), 4 and 5 (4.5), 7 and 8 (7.5) and 10 and 11 (10.5).  Later
on in the game you will get beats all over the place, and so I need
a fine-tuned numbering system that will be a little cumbersome at first.

Anyway, if a beat falls in the center of the screen, and calls for the
letter A just one time, I will use the notation of 0A_1.  If it is to
the right for one beat, 3A_1.  If it's to the center 3 times in a row
with the letter B, 0B_3.  If you think about it, this should make sense.

Often you will see blue arc appear with a smily face on one end.  If the
arc starts at 6 and ends at 3, I will note it as 6arc3.

OK.... so let's try some notation and see what happens (notation is 99 and
44/100 percent pure at this point).

ALL NOTATIONS ARE FOR NORMAL DIFFICULTY!  Notations for "Easy"
difficulty will be added soon.

Oh my god, the cuteness, it burns!  You see, dogs don't go "bow wow" in

his big yellow dog form as a "wan wan", which is kind of like calling him
Mr. Bow Wow.  All of Spica's dialogue, written and spoken, is skewed

Song 9:  Lovely Panda Apron

"Megane Girl" (Iyame) now meets up with you in the graveyard.
Spooky, in a dancing cute ghosts and goblins sort of way.

(notation to come)



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



2.5.2.5  Episode 4 

Just like Amp does, you go to investigate the Flitz Festival
that King is sponsoring.  Iyame and Crow come to hang out with
you, too, and you have to chase Iyame into the 2nd Notty...



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



Notty # 2 and Notty #3 (same as Amp's)

This is a fairly difficult challenge, especially if you don't understand
written or spoken Japanese.  You have to press the X, A, B and Y buttons
on cue in the following situations:

1)  You are chasing after Ival (Amp's doppleganger/rival) in the 
sewers, and after watching the top of the screen for a scrolling bullet,
you press the button who's color matches said bullet, in time to the music.
The very end involves pressing a button perhaps 15 or 20 times in a row
quickly.

2)  You find yourself in the dark, and have to press a button in time to
the music, depending on how quiet you need to be.  A pattern that will
pass you on to the next challenge (but may not be absolutely perfect),
is the following:

Use the A button for the first notty, the A button for the second notty,
and the X button for the third notty.

This will pass you on to the next challenge which is basically impossible
without tons of trial and error, or a good understanding of Japanese:

3)  You are in front of a machine which will test your worthiness (probably
whether you are human or a robot) by challenging you to match some notty.
The following is the buttons you need to use for each notty to pass the level
(specific notation to come):

A button (top laser), then B button (side laser), then B button (side laser),
then A button (top laser).  Use only that button for each notty pass.

The machine goes crazy, and then speaks really fast, but the gist is, you
have to prove your worth again.

B button, then A button, then X button.  Use only that button for each notty
pass.

(notation to come)



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



Song 10:  Persona Vicine

You and Yusa made it past the crazy machine notty, and now Iyame and
Crow saunter up, as you all find yourself in the center of King's
tower.  But where's King.... ah, here comes Mum (a sexy mummy), maybe
she can help.  Perhaps a flitz will do it....

(notation to come)



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



Song 11:  The Grown-Up World

Mum's a piece of cake, but now King comes out talking smack about how
little girls can't flitz.  Iyame won't put up with that crap, so she
casts a spell (told you she was a little witchy) and POW, you and
Iyame are living large and quite cute in full teen effect.  So,
King brings out a fine cartoony woman to help Mum put you back into
your place.  Well, time to flitz (and hope for a little fan service
with the mini-mini skirt action).

(notation to come)



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



Song 12:  Incontrare

King's impressed with your new teen flitz style.  So he comes down
off his high-horse to get all dirty flitzy with ya.

(notation to come)



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



2.5.2.6  Episode 5 - Festival Day

You're a teen now, so you decide to join the Flitz Festival (the
10,000th anniversary one), and now you have to meet 4 dance crew
challengers, in front of a huge audience, below a big spider disco
ball guy.



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



Song 13:  Dancers Be Ambitious

It's you against the underwater crew, Gil and Lagoona.  Plus, the
little folk get all smurfy on the sidelines.

(notation to come)



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



Song 14:  Yellow Cat?

"It's been a long time since I've flitzed against Wan Wan." <sigh>.
This time, it's pretty darned hard.  Just remember to press your
A button early and often when the huge waves of red ovals come at
ya.  Time it right and you can get the big Flitz Boon action.

(notation to come)



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



Song 15:  African Drunk

Dr. Stein, Ranke, and Ranke 01 are here, but instead of reggae
they've got a little slow soul.  Seems harder than Amp's "Fiesta
De Reggae", but it's more fun to watch the girls go at it.

(notation to come)



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



Song 16:  Cute Rival

Did I mention that Iyame is a teen girl now?  Well, just
remember back to when you first met on the bad side of town, and
crank it up to 11.  There you go.

(notation to come)



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



2.5.2.7  Episode 6 - "I Ain't Afraid of no Flitz Ghost"

OK.  It's you, litte Yusa and Teen Iyame against the King.  Did you
know that Mum and the other woman, King's helpers, were past winners
of the flitz festival?  Since you and Iyane won, that means you
can join King, too.  Megane's all gu gu gu over this, but you have
a solid head of hair so you put up a flitzy fuss.



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



Song 17:  Imperatore

All King, all the time.  Kind of like an advanced Incontrare.

(notation to come)



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



Song 18: Yussa Yussa You

So, you showed King that you got flitz handles, and now he's talking
about this Flitz Ghost.  Hmmm... time for a little cat fight with
Iyame - is King stupid or not?  Baby Yusa has no time for your games,
so it's a flitz blitz.

(notation to come)



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



Song 19:  SHu

Well, this is it.  Everything went all white gray and throbby, and
the Flitz Ghost is here, although he looks like a green Micheline
Man that's about to rob a bank.  If you can flitz it here, you can
flitz it anywhere.  Spica, flitz boon get!

(notation to come)



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



Game Over, Yeah!:

Teenage Spica saves the day, and the Flitz Ghost explodes, knocking
her clean out of Cool Cool Town and the TV, back to her room.
Unfortunately, she's a little fly girl again.  She tries to get back
the magical channel to no avail, but just after she loses all hope,
baby Yusa and Iyame pop back out and grab her back into the
everlasting world of flitzy glitter and notty glam.  Ah, bliss.



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



2.6      Single Flitz

At the beginning of this mode, you can pick from 30 characters, most of
which are locked at the beginning of the game.  If you travel through the 
Story mode, you can unlock more.  By choosing the third choice in the 
"Options" menu, you can turn the character select to text ("on") or
pictures ("off").

You can also select any available extra costumes upon picking a character.

As you Flitz, you face the CPU in 5 rounds.  If you don't beat the CPU's 
score, you lose, with an option to "Retry" or "Exit".  Your results are
AUTO SAVED to your VMU, so if you make it to level 4 once and fail
miserably, when you pick that character again, you start out on a
"level 1" which is the same hard level 4.  Flitzer beware.

I advise putting yourself into Easy Flitz mode before attempting too
much of this.  That is, unless you got the mad flitz skilz.



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



2.6.1      Character and Costume List



On the character select screen (if you are viewing character
icons, see the Options menu and turn the third option off) you
will see a 5 by 6 grid, represented below:


     1     2     3     4     5


     6     7     8     9     10


     11    12    13    14    15


     16    17    18    19    20


     21    22    23    24    25


     26    27    28    29    30



The following is a list of the names of all 30 characters (or
at least the 27 that are unlocked after completing both story
modes once), and a listing of the numbers and names of extra

knowledge) by replaying Story Mode and completing
single flitz with each and every character, or by "purchasing"
them over the internet with "J" points.  Good Luck



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



2.7      Duel Flitz

This is you against another human player, but everything else is the
same as a single Flitz (I assume, I'll need to explore this later)



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



2.8      Double Flitz

This is you and another player working together?  Again, this is for later



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



2.9      Internet Gate

This will allow you to download additional costumes, etc.  I have not tried
this, and probably will not due to my not being in Japan, and not being
a DC modem user as of yet.  Specifics on this mode are welcomed as a 
submission



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



2.10      Neo Geo Pocket Gate

You can upload and download to Cool Cool Jam, which is a Neo Geo Pocket
Color cartridge, only released in Japan, and with loads of Japanese text.

I received Cool Cool Jam in late August, and once I play through it more I
will add information to this FAQ.  Basically, there is a Japanese text heavy
RPG-ish story mode with lots of Notty, and if you play this enough you can
unlock various instruments to Notty with (guitar, drums, etc.).

Obviously, you need a DC-to-NGPC cable to upload or download data.



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



2.11      CD-ROM Extras

For some reason I waited a month before putting my CCT GD-ROM
into my iMac, and I'm sorry I took so long, because there are 23.5MB
of extras!

First of all, you should note the maracas.txt file, which tells
in Japanese how you can use the Samba Amigo controllers to do
your flitzing.  I'll save the translation for the next FAQ 
revision - if you've actually tried this out, please let me know
so I can add your experience to the FAQ.

Now for the tofu and potatoes: the HTML and GALLERY folders.  A
complete listing of the contents of each follolws:

Basically, you can open up "INDEX.HTML" with any web browser that
can handle Japanese coded text, and if you can read Japanese you'll
be treated to tons of story, along with Manga style CCT graphics.
I'll eventually try to plow through the text and translate what I
find (unless a translation already exists - if you know of one
please tell me).

Cool Cool Jam

3.1 See Above.  Eventually, this faq will cover Cool Cool Jam in as much
depth as I can stand.  It has new characters, plus old favorites like
Ranke.  Basically, you are searching for band members, and can do tons of
Notty along the way.  I'll probably tackle this later in October.

4.1  Big thanks to Terry Chatman, who wrote with the superb advice to try
playing on Easy difficulty, and also informed me about the wide variety of
costumes in Single Flitz and how to unlock them.  He states the following:

        After beating the game, earning all characters,
        defeating story mode with both, defeating Single Fritz
        with everyone, you get all the costumes, plus a hidden
        dance track under "watch" mode in Story Mode called
        "White Cowboy Extra Funky Tune".

        Also:

        The three secret characters you don't see in story mode
        are Armor. (A fruity looking big armor with floral
        decorations on it.)  Madame Shadow (A slender version
        of the Flitz Ghost which is female.) And Volt. (Some
        punk in a dancing electric chair.)


Thanks also to GD-kun for providing info on the costumes not unlocked
by going through story mode alone, and to Veneficus for many little
clarifications.

4.2   Much thanks to the Softbank Dreamcast Magazine, Japanese version,
for articles and a Demo (#6), which turned me on to Cool Cool Toon in
the first place.  Said demo will allow you to play against Ival, Sara,
Kamio and Ranke, if you restart it enough times.

Future revisions may include detailed notation for each and every song,
with button+direction instructions ad infinitum.  Also, more information
on Cool Cool Jam (and all of the new characters it introduces), along with
any web sites devoted to both games I can find.  I probably will throw in
story mode translations and character unlocking info as it comes to me.

Again, Dreamcast is (c) Sega, Cool Cool Toon and Cool Cool Jam (c) SNK, and
http://www.junkmagnet.com is my website.

I have also contributed heavily to Mark Green's Jet Set Radio FAQ, also
available from http://www.gamefaqs.com.

If you want to email me with requests for information about Cool Cool Jam
or Cool Cool Toon, do so sparingly.  What I know already is probably in
this FAQ, or soon will be.
