INTRODUCTION

Hello and welcome to my FAQ/Walkthrough for Mario Kart Double Dash!!  I
recently produced a FAQ for Mario Kart Wii, so I figured.. Hey! - why don't I
write one for it's predecessor, Double Dash!!  What we have here is a
spectacular game with many features and great abilities - so lets check it
out!


DOUBLE DASH SCHEME

Being titled "Double Dash", you race with two chracters per kart, no matter
how many are playing.  This is by far the biggest add-on, and it makes for a
good time.  It is quite easy, and it is far easier than I perceived it to be.


GUIDE

This guide is at version 1.00.  It covers all topics that I am aware of.
MKDD is quite an old game, so this guide is likely not to be updated.

This section explains the various driving techniques in the game.

--------
Drifting
--------

 WHAT IS DRIFTING?
  A method of sliding.

 WHAT GOOD IS DRIFTING?
  It helps you pass through sharp corners with ease.  A mini-turbo is provided
  with a succesfull drift.

 WHEN SHOULD I DRIFT?
  All the time.  Drifting is an important technique, and you should practice
  it a lot - especially becuase it ties in with SNAKING [see below].

 HOW DO I DRIFT?
  Hold L or R along a turn and glide yourself through.  The more you change
  direction, the better the mini-turbo.

-------
Snaking
-------

 WHAT IS SNAKING?
  A method that gives you constant speed.

 WHAT GOOD IS SNAKING?
  It gives you a constant speed boost.

 WHEN SHOULD I SNAKE?
  All the time.

 HOW DO I SNAKE?
  Repeatedly drift on a track, whether you are on a straight or turn.
  Remember, snaking can be very helpful, so practice it!

------------
Rocket Start
------------

Perform a rocket start by tapping on A during the countdown to a race.  When
"GO!" appears on the screen, hold A and you should shoot out ahead.  With two
players, you can double your rocket start speed when both players do the
rocket start at the exact same time.

-------------
Slipstreaming
-------------

 SLIPSTREAMING...WHAT THE HECK?
  Of course, it is a driving technique.  More specifically, it is gained by
  being positioned behind another kart.  Blue lines, (they are air lines) will
  appear that give you a jet of speed.

--------------
Stealing Items
--------------

This is only done on Multiplayer.  When an enemy kart is near, the riding
player can press L or R (L to go left, R to go right).  This will steal any
items that the enemy formerly posessed.  Items can also be stolen by running
into an enemy in the time that you feel the effect of a mushroom.  If you hit
a player that does not have items, the player will be knocked off balance.

|_   _| 02.00                       ITEMS                        02.00 |_   _|
  |_|  ________________________________________________________________  |_|


WHAT ARE ITEMS?
 The very thing that make this game frustrating.  Ultimately, they are for
 attacking an opponent and messing them up, but by the time you get to 150cc,
 they are brutal.

WHERE DO ITEMS COME FROM?
 In broad terms, they come from the Mario World.  In this game, they are
 compact into an item box that is obtained by driving through one.

* In this game, each character has a "Special Item" that is more powerful and
  helpful than a normal item.  Special items appear randomly - there is no
  specific way to get them (except passing through an item block, but then the
  item is chosen randomly, so hence my point - they appear randomly).  Even if
  a character isn't paired up with their normal partner, they will still
  receiv their own Character Special.

So, here we go - the item list.

King Boo & Petey Piranha
------------------------
This pair has the ability to obtain any special item.
* Birdo's Pink Egg and Luigi's Green Fireballs are excluded - they use both of
  those player's parter's colored egg/fireball.

==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==

-------------
Luigi Circuit
-------------

Description - Definitely being a beginner's course, it still features the
              usual Luigi Circuit property: boost padded turns.
Hazards - Chain Chomp
Tips - You don't need to use the boost padded turns... a better alternative
       method is to drift along the inside of the turn.
Staff Ghost Unlock Time - anything better than 1:29.000

-----------
Peach Beach
-----------

Description - The Royal Princess's beach is at high tide on lap 2, but
              otherwise makes for a good run.
Hazards - Water (you drown if you get too deep)
        - Cataquacks
Tips - Using the cobblestone path helps to avoid the cataquacks.
     - Daisy Cruiser is seen sailing in the background.
Staff Ghost Unlock Time - anything better than 1:18.000

---------
Baby Park
---------

Description - Baby Luigi and Baby Mario have decided to let you use this lame
              Go-Kart track from their amusement park.
Hazards -
Tips - Drift so that you just round the edge.
Staff Ghost Unlock Time - anything better than 1:11.000

--------------
Dry Dry Desert
--------------

Description - Being the most complicated track in the Mushroom Cup, it's not
              even that tough - maybe a quicksand pit, but nothing that hard.
Hazards - Quicksand pit
        - Pokeys
Tips - Drift around the quicksand pit for best results
Staff Ghost Unlock Time - anything better than 1:53.000

---------------
Mushroom Bridge
---------------

Description - Mushroom Bridge is the Game Cube's Moonview Highway, except like
              a million times easier.  For one thing, it's day time and there
              cars are easier to avoid.  But anyway, it's a fun course.
Hazards - The giant cars
Tips - You can drive along the bridge's beams, which have boost pads and
       items.
     - You can take an alternate route by turing right imediately at the
       beginning of the lap.  You then come to a warp pipe, which shoots you
       back to the track.
Staff Ghost Unlock Time - anything better than 1:34.000

-------------
Mario Circuit
-------------

Description - A very Mario-like course featuring many hazards that fit him
              well.

Staff Ghost Unlock Time - anything better than 1:44.000

-------------
Daisy Cruiser
-------------

Description - It may not seem cool to race on a cruise ship, but it is here!

              done.
Hazards -
Tips - Fall into the hole after passing the dining room: it has a double item
       box and plus, it's cool.
Staff Ghost Unlock Time - anything better than 1:55.000

can't in what modes, so here is a format list:

 2 players together vs. 1 player
 2 players together vs. 2 other players together

 2 players together vs. 1 player
 2 players together vs. 1 player vs. 1 player

6.04                              LAN PLAY                                6.04
==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==

Basic Description
-----------------

 LAN Play gives you the oppurtunity to play with other Game Cube systems
 connected to a hub device.  You could also link two Game Cubes to each other,
 allowing more than four players.

 _| |_                                                                  _| |_
|_   _| 07.00                     LAN SETUP                      07.00 |_   _|
  |_|  ________________________________________________________________  |_|

--------------------------
Nintendo Broadband Adapter
--------------------------

This component is vital for both connections below.  To hook it up to your
'Cube, put it inside "Serial Port 1" on the bottom of the system.  You will
also need to add a 8P8C (RJ-45) or 6P4C (RJ-11) port to the side of the
Game Cube

-------------------------------------------
Linking Two or More Local Game Cube Systems
-------------------------------------------

 This setup allows two or more local Game Cubes to play together.

 SETUP: You will need a CROSS-CABLE that is 10BASE-T hub compatible connected
        between Game Cubes, along with each system having the Mario Kart
        Double Dash!! game disk and the NINTENDO BROADBAND ADAPTER, and
        obviously a controller for each player.  Turn the system on and the
        LAN option will appear - choose it to play.

-----------------------------------
Playing with an un-local Connection
-----------------------------------

 This is similar to playing local, except of course for the fact that it
 isn't.

 SETUP: Again, your system requires to be hooked up with the NINTENDO
        BROADBAND ADAPTER that is 10BASE-T hub compatible, along with each
        system having the Mario Kart Double Dash!! game disk and controllers
        for every player (up to 4!).  Turn the system on and the LAN option
        will appear - choose it to play.
