If you are reading this you are undoubtedly in dire straits. Wanderers are a pain in the ass and finding the requirements is somewhat dumb luck. However with my help you will be on your way to 100% in no time. If you have any questions, comments or corrections about the FAQ send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll do my best to help. Now on to the good stuff!!! 3. VERSION HISTORY version 1.0 - 12/03/03: first attempt ever at a FAQ and the first version for the wanderers version 1.1 - 12/08/03: cleaned up some grammatical errors and added 2 new sections (6 and 10) version 1.2 - 12/12/03: changed some of the requirements for various wanderers after confirmations on the message board and added section 7 due to new revalations concerning her. version 1.3 - 12/19/03: cleaned up some requirements. No major changes but hopefully there will be less confusion. version 1.4 - 01/01/04: fixed Golden Wolf version 1.5 - 03/12/04: some minor adjustments here and there. Still a couple wanderers that aren't quite right requirement wise version 2.0 - 04/11/04: finally got the Funabashi Holligan section up. Updated White Tiger. 4. LICENSE PLATE HELP Wanderers #275, #276, #302, #309, #119, and #158 all require some sort of special license plate. The requirements for the plates are listed for each wanderer in their section. In order to change your license plate you must go into the car change menu. Then select change, choose the car which license plate you wish to change and then hit the square button. The first choice in this screen applies to wanderer numbers #275, #276, #302 and #158. They all have a R#-C#(R is for the row and C is for the column) designation. If you use the top left corner as R1-C1 you can then apply each given number to find the correct symbol needed. After you select that you must choose three numbers, they can be set to whatever you want as they will not impact the wanderer requirements at all. Next is a single character. This is part of wanderer #119's requirement. If you go all the way to the bottom and right you should be on a "Y". Choose the character to the left of "Y" for wanderer #119's requirement. Lastly, for wanderer #309 you have the choice of 4 numbers. Set all of these numbers to 1 for his requirement. That should do it for those wanderers. 5. PS2 CLOCK TRICK For wanderers 273, 279 and 288 you need your playstation 2's internal clock to be at a certain time. Instead of waiting for this time to come around in the game you can go into your PS2's settings and change the time. To do this choose the system configuration option when you first turn your PS2 on. This should bring you to the Clock Adjustment screen. From here hit triangle and find the Time Zone option. Change that to the Japan time zone. back out of that and then change the time to whatever the requirement is for the wanderer you are doing. 6. PARKED WANDERERS Wanderers #269, #279 and #125 will not appear in front of you when you select thier designated section like most wanderers do. Instead they are parked on the side of the road waiting for you. In order to get them to race you, you can do 2 things. First if you drive by them slowly they will usually pull out and challenge you. Your other option is ramming them out. Ramming them out will almost always get them going and from there you are a flash of the high beams away. 7. FUNABASHI HOOLIGAN'S SPECIAL SECTION I have been getting a lot of questions concerning the whereabouts of the Pit Areas in Tokyo. Due to that I have decided to add this section which describes the location of all of the PAs. Thanks to ShinKarasu for putting this together, it is a really huge help. There are 20 total: C1 Inner:1 - Middle between C1 and ShinKanjou C1 Outer:1 - Top rightish of C1 Outer, should be right there when you start ShinKanjou CCL:3 - bottom part of the ShinKanjou (between Yokohane and Wangan) - Upper right corner of the ShinKanjou - Uppper left corner of the ShinKanjou, right before the C1 Loop starts ShinKanjou CWL:3 - All same as ShinKanjou CCL Wangan Out:2 - Just a little bit after the first road that connects the Wangan and Yokohane - A bit before the Daikatai (sp) Wangan In:2 - Pretty much in the same as Wangan Out but a little off (easy to find) Daikatai(sp):2 - Right at the end of the Southbound Daik - Near the start of the Northbound (just hit the southbound and then choose Daik from the menu, and then go against traffic looking back until you see the entrance) Yokohama CWL:1 - Sort of near the middle of it (not too sure, but easy to find) Yokohama CCL:1 - Near the upper left of the Yokohama Yokohane Out:2 - A bit after the Daik - About midway up the Yokohane, bit before the road that connects this and the Wangan Yokohane In:2 - Pretty much the same places as Yokohane Out, but a little different (easy to find) 8. WHIRLWIND FANFARE'S SPECIAL SECTION This happens to be the most unfortuante part of the game. Whirlwind Fanfare has a requirement of 100 million CP but in the game you cannot earn more than 99,999,990 CP. This leaves you 10 CP short of the requirement and 1% away from finishing the game with 100%. The only way to get the 100 million CP is to use a gameshark or similar cheating device. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but this is just the way it is. 9. TOKYO WANDERERS: C1 Inner Loop: #260 Rikochan - will only appear on even numbered days (i.e. day 2, 4, 6 . . .) #261 The Divine Wind - will only appear on rainy/snowy days #262 White Tiger - requirements still unknown.

You must go back to Tokyo and select Wangan In and then choose the middle-most starting point. Race and beat any rival and he will come from behind you and challenge you to one final race.
