ABOUT ME (rgptt2)

First of all, who am I, why do I write a guide on this game? Ok my name is
Antoine Sabourin and I'm a member of a group that makes strategy guides called
the_helpers. I play ping-pong regurally in official Canadian tournaments. If
you want the proof, go on www.ctta.ca, then go in RATINGS, go in CURRENT
RATINGS, then in SEARCH PLAYER BY NAME, write down Sabourin Antoine. You'll see
my ranking in Canada! As for Why I write a guide for this particular game, the
answer is pretty easy...

Note that all stats are not full proof, if you have any changes to them, email
me. All other stats are from the book and the game(exept for my opinion). Their
are other ways to unlock items, tell me how you did and I'll post it on my faq,
giving you credits of course.

TOURNAMENT MODE  (rgptt4)
Ok so here's the reason you probably buyed that game, exept for playing with a
friend. Tournament mode is the way of unlocking most of the characters. You can
also unlock Expert difficulty by beating the hard tournament. There's not
much to say here exept if you have trouble beating an opponent, check the
"always-handy tips and tricks section".

EXHIBITION MODE  (rgptt5)
If tournament mode is the place to unlock characters, here's the place to
unlock jerseys and tables. If you unlocked expert difficulty, you'll be able to 
practice before going head to head with the finalist of the expert circuit in
Tournament mode. Then again chek the tips and tricks section for clues on how
to  beat opponents. 

TRAINING MODE  (rgptt6)
Here you have what every pleyers should do first, train, learn the basis. Try
completing this part before your first match.
In training mode, you can play through a series of drills to learn the
mechanics of the game and fine-tune your skills to help you become a true
champion.
Serve Meter: Easy, just do the serves. Try to make a perfect one.
Serve Aiming: Swing up right to hit the ball to the upper-right corner,
              down right for the lower-right corner, same goes for lefts.
Returns: Easy, just swing the remote until the exercice is over.
Charging: Easy, do exactly the same as above but hold any direction on the
          + control pad (I prefer topspin!)
Spin: Easy, just do as it's written on the upper portion of the screen.
Placement: The toughest of 'em all, do as you did in Serve Aiming...
Soft Shots: Easy, hold the A button and swing the remote as hell!
Smashes: Easy, just swing the remote, as usual.
Focus Shots: Same as Soft Shots but press B instead of A
Counterspin: Easy, just do the same effect as they send you the ball, yellow
             is backspin, green is topspine, blue is for leftspin and red for
             rightspin
Sharp Shooter: Just aim at the blue square/rectangle without making the remote
               shake to much.

OPTIONS  (rgptt7)
--Game options: 
Games per match: numbers of game to win a game: In real life it's a 3-5 but
against friends, it's better to play a 2-3 and a single game for faster matchs
against the cpu.
Auto full focus: If full focus goes on automatically after resplenishing a bar:
Let it on if your new but the more you become good, the best it is to turn it
off
Points per game: Number of points required to win a game: In real life it's 11
pts, 21 is for old-schoolers... 7 points is best for faster matchs against the
cpu.
Help tips: If help goes when you loose a point and after each sets: Let them on
if you want, but i put them off cause their kinda annoying...
Single player cam: What camera angle you want: Near is just behind you as far
is over you, in anyways, the camera is behind you all the time, recommendations
are near...
Multiplayer cam: Same as single player cam exept that your against your friend.
Let it far for equality, players will switch from front to back at each set.
Event cam: Do you want a slow-motion each time you do a focus shot? My answer
is yes please!
Points per serve: How many consecutive serves you make. 2 is for real life
gaming as 5 is for old-schoolers (Rockstar tought of everything!!!)
Player transparancy: The name says it! Better to kepp it off but you never
know...
--Audio options:
Whats to say here, you know how to navigate a menu i hope...

EXTRAS  (rgptt8)
Character viewer: Basically useless cause you got all that info in the
instruction booklet or in this guide. The only reason you should go there is to
see different shirts for different player even tho you can see them before each
games...
Stats: That is nice for it gives you every single thing you want to know about
your progress so far.
Unlocked items: Don't want to see how to unlock characters? Go see a hint
there!
Credits: Do you have time to spend?

PROFILE MANAGER  (rgptt9)
Here you can change profile, edit the name of it or delete it.

CONTROLS  (rgptt10)
Choose your control scheme from three distinctive choices:
Standard: Wii remote only.
+ pad for different effects (up=topspin, down=backspin, left=leftspin,
right=rightspin)

Swing Remote up-center for upper-middle shots
Swing Remote up-left for upper-left corner shots
Swing Remote down-right for lower-right corner shots
Swing Remote down-center for lower-middle shots

This is the easiest way to play but it is difficult to aim. Leave this control
scheme for friends. :)

The most difficult and nicest way to play, needs lots of training to master,
practice against friends. :)

Sharp Shooter: Precise aiming using the nunchuk

right=rightspin)
B and Z buttons for Focus shot
A button for Soft shot

2 Button for Camera change.
C button for Full Focus mode
Analog Stick to place the ball
The best way to play. Use it to unlock things and beat tournaments.

TIPS AND TRICKS  (rgptt11)
Using the Standard controls:
-Don't just swing the remote everytime or else you won't be able to aim!
-Try to always aim the part of the table you want to, even thoe it is
difficult.
-The serve is easy to nail, so try to make it perfect everytime.

Using the Control Freak controls:
-Do exactly the same as above.
-Try to move before hitting the ball.
-Falling back is easier in this control set, so try it out to put more
spin into the ball.

Using the Sharpshooter controls:
-Aiming is the easiest thing on earth so abuse with the control scheme.
-Don't overdo-it thoe, when you're remote start to vibrate, let loose
the control stick
-With this control scheme, you can swing the remote 100% of the time
while aiming, do it!

General tips:
-Always aim the part of the table your opponent isn't (duh!).
-The topspin is your greatest friend.
-More often than not, you will smash, so make your opponent run!
-On easier difficulties, a soft shot as a serve return makes almost
everyone's day, but be careful when going against harder cpus.
-When lobbing, go far behind to put better spin and put rightspin
if you aim the right part of the table, leftspin is for left part!

CONCLUSION  (rgptt12)
Finally, the place you went to directly after seing the credits (of this faq or

much to say exept that I hoped this faq helped you as much as I intend it to
