    Prior to these update, I have receiving e-mails regarding the game's
    topless code. For the full explanation about the code, please check
    the Q & A section under the last section of the FAQ. The code DOES
    NOT work as based on my testing. However, a trick posted by people at
    the GameFAQs message boards does works.
    Thanks to a few readers, I have managed to corrected and expanded some
    of the minor facets that I have overlooked.
    As I am currently serving the Army, I will not have much time in reply
    e-mails. By the way, please do not sent e-mails to my old e-mail a/c
    as I no longer read e-mails from there. Please wait for at least 3
    days for my reply. If you need help urgently, consult other FAQ
    writers for this game. The message boards at GameFAQs is also a ideal
    source of help.
                                 Game Overview
    This beach volleyball simulation game (I will not classified as a
    sports game...) features those lovely chicks from Dead of Alive Series.
    The game involves from Zack, the winner of the DOA 3 Tournament who
    subsequently strikes lottery at the casino and bought over an island.
    The name was named after him. Up to something mischief, he invites ONLY
    female competitors from DOA series for the tournment, DOA 4. You will
    be choosing to play as one of 8 gals for 14 day vacation in Zack's
                                Zack's Island
    Zack Island consists of several places of interest and they are:-
    * JUNGLE
      It's cool under the trees and it's green as far as the eye can see.
    * HOTEL
      It's a paradise! There's even a casino!
      The DJ has the place jumpin' Keep those request coming!
      What a cool little island. Well they say: When in Rome...
      Buy swimsuits here. Check back daily!
      Some nice, small items. Lots of variety
      All those sails are quite a sight
      A nice out-of-the-way spot. Wonder what's here
      A quite beach for Zack's private use
      A stall that would opens on fourth day of a girl's vacation.
    3.1 - Basis
    The gameplay is relatively simple as you just need to your time on the
    island by playing beach volleyball, practice your hopping at the
    poolside, purchases accessories and stuff from shops and interact with
    the girls that stays on the island.
    3.2 - Options Menu
    Before you start the game, you can go to the Options where you get to
    switch your controls between digital and analog. Analog controls will
    cause the power of the character's spike, serve or jump based on how
    hard you have pressed the button. Digital allows you to have a 4-
    buttons control with Attack (hard), Attack (soft) and Receive (hard)
    or Receive (soft). In my opinion, digital controller is easier as you
    can control the hard/soft of the controls that you want. You can view
    the federal warning and age settings under the Options menu.
    3.3 - Starting the Game
    Every character has her own likes and dislikes. Winning games help to
    build teamwork and the relationship between the two. Whoever you choose
    as your character, they will meet up with Lisa on the poolside who
    offers to take you on a tour around the island. Of course, you are
    playing as Lisa, you will meet up with Tina instead. On the first play,
    you will be guided along for the first day. However if you have
    completed the 14-day vacation with at least 1 character, you will be
    given the option to skip the tour. However, it will bring down your
    affection with Lisa. You start the game with 10,000 Zack Dollars or
    your previous remaining amount from the character's previous vacation.
    The reason why it is Lisa inviting your character for the tourney is
    because she is co-host of Zack's Island & Zack's sister!
    3.4 - Replaying a vacation
    If you are using the same saved file but using another character, you
    will most likely find items that you have previously given the
    character as gifts (provided that she did not discard them...).
    Unfortunately, they cannot be re-sent as presents $_$:)

      & the hopping game.
    The default settings for the digital controls are:

    (X) Button - Receive Soft
    Winning hopping game at the poolside or winning a beach volleyball
    game nabs you Zack dollars, the currency used on the island. You can
    also choose to gamble these money at Casino when your character gets
    back to the casino at night.
    D A Y    A C T I V I T I E S
    A single day on Zack Island is practically divided into 4 "parts" - 
    morning, daytime, evening and night time. You can only doing the
    following events during the day (morning, daytime & evening):-
    A day at Zack Island can be divided into 4 "parts" as the following:
    1) Morning - everything accessible* except for Bass Island & Casino
    2) Daytime - everything accessible* except for Casino
    3) Evening - everything accessible* except for Bass Island & Casino
    4) Night time - you can only access the Casino.
    * Jack of All Trades only opens from 4th day of your vacation.
      P o o l s i d e
      Take a rest at the poolside and play the hopping mini-game. You can
      also view your items and have a rest (gravure system mode) at the
      pool. Note that when you are not moving D-Pad or left thumbstick, you
      will enter into the gravure mode while your character is lying on the
      bench chair.
      Entering the poolside will give you the following options:
      Leave the poolside : Leave the pool
      Take a rest*       : Enter into pool gravure mode system
      Play hopping game* : Play the mini game
      View items         : View your items, accessories, items & presents
      Quit the game      : Exit "Zack's Island Mode"
      I supposed most of the options are straight forward except for the
      options mark in asterisk. Select either one of these commands will
      allows you to move past a "part" of a day. Gravure mode will differ
      depends on the "part" of the day.
      I have also discovered that the Gravure movie will change if you
      change your character's costume or equipped the character's favorite
      item. Please refer to gravure mode listing under each individual
      character's profile. Gravure movie shown are also based on the days.
      For example for Hitomi, there are 2 gravure movies for daytime. You
      will get the gravure movie of her sitting by poolside on odd days
      while a gravure movie of her lying on the poolside on even days.
      ------------      Note: The digital controls can be applied for this
      Hopping Game            mini-game.
      The mini-game objective is relatively simply. You just need to move
      your character from one side of the pool to other by jumping on the
      floating boards. Once you fall into the pool, you will be given the
      option to retry or quit the mini-game.
      For analog controls,
      Hopping is basically affected by pressure sensitivity of the (A)
      button. Your character will hop further if you hit the (A) button
      harder. You can calibrate the pressure before beginning of any hopping
      mini-game game. Hit the start button to proceed. You can make use of
      digital controls by hit (A) as hard button and (B) as soft button.
      The faster you get to other side of the pool, the higher your score
      will be. All points earned on Zack's Island will be converted to Zack
      Dollars. In between, you will be gaining Nice points for making nifty
      steps by chaining your jumps smoothly. Nice points will be accumulated
      during hopping. However if you fall into the pool, the nice points
      earned will be not be forfeited i.e. you will not receive any Zack
      dollars. You can also zoom in while playing the mini-game.
      The hopping game can generates a steady source of income and it also
      allows you to be familiarised with the analog controls. It is ideal
      for practicing with the analog controls.
      S h o p s 
      I supposed I don't need to explain too much as Lisa will explain for
      you when you are playing the game for the first time. There are a
      total of three shops - Sports Shop, Accessory Shop and Zack of All
      Trades. The third shop will only open from the 4th day of the 
      character's vacation.
      The items will be changed between days. So make sure you check them
      out every time. However, there are a few points to take note of:
      . Items such as food (milk, lobster, crabs, etc) & flowers (hibiscus,
        roses, etc) will withered or go stale when you have keep them for
        more than half a day. Once withered/spoilt, they will be discarded
      . Accessories are the only items that can be worn. Exceptions
        includes the character's favorite item. For example, Kasumi's
        favorite item allow you to change her hairstyle to braids or
      . Swimsuits sold in the Sports Shops are ONLY specific to the
        character's theme. For example, you will find flowers-theme
        swimsuits when you are playing as Kasumi and birds-theme swimsuits
        when you are playing as Leifang.
      . In order to other theme swimsuits is by offering presents to the
        other girls so that they will sent you a return gift when you
        return back to the hotel at night. You can also play as the other
        character and give gifts to your character, which is the faster
      . Zack will give you 3 swimsuits for the character when they return
        to the hotel after winning beach volleyball. You can expect to
        receive a gift from Zack every night. It seems that changing to new
        swimsuits helps you to get new swimsuit earlier.
      . Hit (X) button before attempting to purchase will allow you to
        know whether the item is in your inventory. This hint is pretty
        useful when you attempting to complete the swimsuit collection for
        that particular character. You can also receive your character's
        swimsuit from other characters as gift.
      B e a c h e s  /  J u n g l e
      There are a lot of things while on the isolated regions of the island.
      You can play beach volleyball when you have a partner and there are
      2 characters within that area.
      When there is nobody within that area, you will automatically proceed
      to the gravure mode for your character. Hit Start or (A) button to
      exit. The time will passes for a "part".
      If you are alone, there are 1 or 2 companions on the area, you will
      be given the option of:- 1) forming a partnership and 2) giving the
      girl a present.
      There is some art in forming partnerships and giving gifts. Before
      forming a partnership, you must be on good terms with the character.
      The relationship can be enhanced by giving likeable gifts to the
      character. If you give a wrong item, it will bring down the mood
      between the 2 characters. Winning volleyball games help to build
      friendship. For the list of likeable objects, please refer to the
      Characters Section for more details. Doing a gift presentation or
      forming partnership (fail or succeed) will result you to spend a 
      "part" of the day.
      If you have a partner and there are 2 characters found in that area,
      you will be given an additional option of having a volleyball game.
      You can pause the game by hit the Start button. If you choose to quit
      the game, it will be counted as you lose the beach volleyball game.
      Beach Volleyball
      The volleyball game is relatively simple as it involves moving the
      character around the field and using 2 buttons based on how hard you
      hit the button. Good serves, blocks and spikes can earn you nice
      points. The larger the point margins, the more points you will earn.
      Basic Rules:
      - Matches use the rally point system, where the serve goes to
        whoever team has mostly recently scored. The character will take
        turns in serving. The 1st player will have the chance to serve
      - The team that gets to 7 points first wins. Deuce may also be
        called when the score is 6 to 6. If the score reaches 9 - 9, the
        first team to reaches 10 points wins the game.
      - There are no sidelines and endline on the court.
      - Your team will always be on the left side of the court.
      The volleyball game consists of 5 basic phrases:
      - Hit Down or Up on the D-Pad to change position before your
        character begin to serve.
      - To perform a serve, hit (A) to toss the ball up and hit (A) again
        while the ball is in mid-air. You can make use of D-Pad to
        determine the aim point of opposition's court.
      Basically, there are 3 types of serves:-
      1) Overhand Serve - the default serve technique.
         View the instructions above. If you hit with good timing and a
         strong force, you will be award 1000 nice points for the serve.
      2) Underhand Serve
         To execute the serve, hold left on D-Pad when your character is
         facing right and hit (A) to toss and followed by (A) to hit.
         This move does not possesses much power but it is very easy to
      3) Jump Serve
         To execute the serve, hold right on D-Pad when your character is
         facing right and hit (A) to toss. While the ball reaches the peak,
         hit (A) to perform a Jump Serve. A great technique but hard to
         time. If you hit with good time and strong force - you will be
         awarded 2000 nice points for the serve.
      - Move your character towards the ball and lightly tap (B) to hit
        the incoming serve or spike.
      - To perform Two Attack,
        Hold down (B) firmly when your character are about to recieve
        the ball. For your character to perform Two Attack, hold down (B)
        when your partner receives the ball.
      - Short Toss: Tap (B) as your teammate receives the ball
      - Long Toss: Press (B) firmly as your teammate receives the ball.
      - You can determine the direction by pressing Up or Down on the
        D-Pad. If you lightly tap (B) when your teammate is at the
        backcourt, you can give her a quick toss for a back attack.
      - Position your character with D-Pad and while the ball is in
        mid-air, hit (A) to jump and (A) again to perform a spike. The
        power of spike depends on hard you tap (A).
      - When an opponent attempts to block, tap (A) again to perform a 
      - You will be awarded 1000 points for perform a nice spike.
      - Timing is important. Hit (A) when your character is at the net
        to perform a block.
      Controlling your teammate
      The computer will automatically control your partner, but you can
      direct them with the right thumbsticks
      Normal Shift         R/ Down from Above
      Your teammate decides whether to block or receive based on the
      Block Shift          R/ towards the net
      Your teammate will try for a block near the net.
      Receive Shift        R/ away from the net
      Your teammate will try to receive the ball in the backcourt.
      General Tips
      Generally, it is a game based on reflexes and you will need to a lot
      of practcie. I myself spend approximate 3 hours to perfect my
      volleyball skills. Remember: Practice makes perfect.
      - Make your receiving acts timely. Otherwise your character will be
        very vulnerable for incoming spike.
      - Spikes are great tools for attack but do not use them too often.
        Ocassionally, use (B) for a soft spike when your opponent is
        attempting to block you.
      - Toss the ball often and set up your teammate for a spike.
      - Plays the backcourt while your teammate is in front court and vice
      - Do not hit <- + any button when receiving a spike at the back
        court, your character will throw the ball off court most of the
      - You can force to automatic replay instantly by tapping L trigger
        after a score is regristered. This does not work on the match
      You will ONLY be awarded nice points if you are on good terms with
      your partner.
     Scoresheet and Zack Dollars Earned
     7-0    150,000 Z   Any other scores such as 7-6 and tie breaker scores
     7-1     90,000 Z   such as 9-7, 9-8, 10-9 will give 40,000 Z. If you
     7-2     80,000 Z   lose, no Zack Dollars (Z) will be earned. However,
     7-3     70,000 Z   you still get nice points that you have accumulated
     7-4     60,000 Z   in the game.
     7-5     50,000 Z
     Nice Points Listing
     Nice overhead serve                    1000 Z
     Nice block                             1000 Z
     Nice jumping serve                     2000 Z
     Knock opponent over with jump spike    1000 Z
     Score a point with jump spike          1000 Z
     Typically, these are conditions to attain nice points from your
     partner. Nice moves are indicated by shadow movement and they are
     more powerful than normal moves. To do this, you must achieve a good
     timing on your serves/blocks/spikes...
     Match points counts more than nice points. For example, a -1 score
     will result a cut of 10,000 Zack dollars or 60,000 if your score is
     6-0. You will need to score a lot of nice points to compensate for the
     loss. Thus, I do not recommend you to go for jumping serve as there is
     a high tendency of the ball hitting the net...
     If your character is getting on bad terms with your partner (due to
     losing beach volleyball matches or giving "dislike" & "hate" items
     to her), your partner's performance on the court will be weakened. The
     partner becomes more unwilling. It is like have a weak partner on
     your team. Thus maintaining a relationship is crucial in order to win
     breakout games.
     In-game or story relationships could hurt the team's partnership...
     For example, it is very hard to have a partnership between Kasumi and
     Ayane as Ayane hates Kasumi... The only solution is give "love"
     items to the partner and hope the relationship works out well. This
     will thus affect the ethusiasm rating of your character and partner.
     That is why it is marked with a "????" on the manual.
     Character Types
     Character types indicates the character's strengths. For example, a
     character with high power rating indicates that the character could
     dealt powerful spikes that could be hard for the opposition who will
     be receiving. Below is the listing:-
     Stats         What it does?
     `````         ``````````````
     Power (P)     Affects the power dealt in the character's serves/spikes
     Technique (T) Affects character's receiving of spikes and passing. 
     Defense (D)   Affects character's defense in block and receiving power
     Enthusiasm    Affects the character's mood in playing beach volleyball.

     Not all strategies could guranttee 100% victory. It still depends on
     how you make your decisions while on the court...
     For playing as Weak Power characters 
     (Kasumi, Ayane, Helena & Leifang)
     If you are playing as Kasumi/Ayane/Leifang/Helena (weak attackers),
     it would advisible to recruit a character with high power rating for
     your offense. In this case, I would opt for Hitomi (in my opinion,
     she is easier to befriend than Tina...) Lastly, whenever you are going
     for a spike and opponent is jumping to block, use a soft spike avoid
     being blocked... Stay in the backcourt to utilize the character's
     technique ratings. (Despite categorised as a "Defense" character,
     Leifang has pretty good technique ratings...)
     For playing with Weak Technique characters
     (Hitomi and Tina)
     Hitomi and Tina will be likely to exprience in handling tough spikes
     and lobbing the ball to their partners. I would recommend you to have
     these characters stay at the front line for spiking. As for Tina, do
     not go for blocks! Get high technique characters such as Leifang,
     Ayane, Kasumi or Lisa as their partners.
     For playing with Weak Defense characters
     (Ayane and Tina)
     Defense does not count a lot if you do not go for blocks very often.
     For Ayane, keep her at the back when opponents are attacking due to
     her technique. As for Tina, stick at the front bay for catch lobs but
     do not go for blocks.
    N I G H T   A C T I V I T I E S
    There are only 2 places of interest: the hotel and the casino. More
    details regarding the casino will be found at Section 6.
      H o t e l
      Your character will automatically returns back to the hotel. You will
      be able to view your items, your collection, watch movies (earned
      from Zack), give presents to girls (especially your partner), sleep,
      go down to the casino and gamble or quit the game.
      Sleep and Collection
      Sleep will bring you to next day of the vacation. Collection section
      allows you to view the number of swimsuits, accessories and items you
      have gained. Note that it is IMPOSSIBLE to gain all swimsuits within
      one vacation. You need to replay the Zack Island mode again by using
      the same file. The items, accessories and swimsuits collected will be
      available for usage when you play a new vacation with that particular
      character. Collection allows you to store 1 kind of that item.
      Giving Gifts
      In order to boost relationship with other 7 girls on the island, you
      will need to give them gifts. Gifts helps to build affection. If you
      get along with the other girl, they might even give you gifts! (Most
      importantly, other girl's collection of swimsuits.)
      You cannot wrap a gift at the hotel. You can only obtain gifts by
      buying and choose wrap at any one of the stores. If you are intend to
      send a gift which is perishable such as drinks, food or flowers, so
      make sure you bought these items during in the evening phrase.
      Gifts obtained from other girls and Zack will be unknown until you
      have opened the packaging. Note that you can give a gift from Zack
      to another girl! Gift boxes will give you a general idea of what the
      item will be like.
      Please take note that this is only way to built up affection with
      your partner as she no longer appears on the island. You cannot give
      video tapes, gold and silver volleyball and special swimsuits as
      gifts to other characters.
      Relationships also carries on from previous vacations. If you messed
      up the relationship with your current partner previously, most of the
      time, your partner will be unhappy thus breaking up the partnership
      Watch Videos
      There are a total of 7 video tapes, each earned from Zack. They are
      demos and creator's view about the series "Dead or Alive".
      DOA 1 Demo 1997

      character. You can view the video by selecting "Watch Video" option.
      C a s i n o
      This is the place where you get to spend your money by playing
      poker, blackjack, slot machines, etc. More details will be covered
      under Section 6.
    The cast of characters feature a total of 8 female characters from the
    Dead or Alive series. Each girls have her own set of swimsuits, hobbies,
    favorite color and interests.
    - Affection and Friendship -
    Personally, the character profiles includes swimsuits listing and tips
    on building up affection with the character. If you need a complete
    help on affection building, please refer to Robert Goode's Collectable
    Checklist FAQ, which is available at GameFAQs <http://www.gamefaqs.com>
    It is important to build up friendship as your partner will be more
    motivated to team up with your character, thus it is winning beach
    volleyball. Besides this, it also allows your teammate to accept
    certain swimsuits as gifts. For example, not all characters likes the
    Venus swimsuit.
    - Gift Giving -
    Please note that if the character is angry with your character, they
    will also DISCARD away the LOVED items. Thus it is not advisible to give
    a loved item to an angry character. If you want, wait for a day or so
    to give the gift. If you given a gift that the character has already
    have in their inventory, they will return the gift if you are good terms
    or discarded the item.
    - Phrases -
    The character's phrases are obtained once you are in good relationship
    with the character (i.e. you will find music notes on the character's
    icon). They will open the gift and give the phrase as their comments.
    - Gravure Movies -
    Every character has their own set of unique Gravure movies. Some of
    the movies can be locked when you are visiting that particular place
    at even or odd days. The gravure movie controls are stated in your

     General Comment:
     Despite no identifable hobbies, Helena is rather easy to pleased. She
     is a vainpot who treasures expensive items such as pendants, shells,
     murexes, perfume and western food. White colored jewels such as pearl
     and diamond could help to improve her relationship with your
     character. Get her white colored accessories and she will like them.

     you can find along with Chinese related items such as chinese
     delicacies, nunchaku and orange. Apparently like Hitomi, she loves
     teddy bears. For aromatherapy, you can get her an aromapot and
     candles... She is easiest among all girls in getting good
     relationship. Generally, she loves anything that is yellow...

     General Comment:
     Christie's occupation is an assassin, thus giving her westernised
     weapons such as pistols, knives and revolvers are good choice of gifts.
     She loves guitars and driving. Her favorite food is associated with
     tomato. Quite hard to please as there are very little accessories that
     could boost relationship with her. Sunglasses and black sneakers are
     good choices of gifts.

     General Comment:

     items. Her favorite color is rather close towards Hitomi's sky blue.
     You need to find objects that is dark blue or blue in nature.

     Another tough character to get along with. Ayane is a ninja thus you
     should get ninja type weapons such as shurikens and kunais. She loves
     purplish objects and butterflies. Avoid giving her origamis. I have
     found out Ayane loves stylish caps and casquette...

     Just before I end this section, there are few key pointers that I
     would like to stress on about gift giving in DOAXBV.
     1. Beware of items such as drinks, flowers and food. They will go
        spoilt after a period of time (around 1/2 to 3/4 of a day). Thus
        if you are buy them for a person who is not found, I recommend you
        to buy it in evening and sent them via Hotel's "Give a Gift"
        option. Items sold at Zack of All Trades can be only be bought
        once for that particular vacation.
     2. As you give likeable accessories, the girls will wear it as you
        see them playing beach volleyball or during gurave mode. There is
        an important note regarding this.
        Make sure you did not give them the same gifts that they are
        currently wearing. I have tried once by giving Ayane a denim
        casquette which she is wearing. However, it got discarded despite
        her mood is good...
     3. It is possible to give swimsuits as gifts. However, I supposed
        most people attempt to collect all swimsuits and would rather
        spend the money on rarer swimsuits and items for gifts.
     4. On receiving a gift, make sure that you do NOT discard the item
        on that night. It will have a great impact on the giver's mood.
        If you want to discard, do it on the next day.
     5. Gifts that is not opened on 13th night will be available for
        viewing on the next vacation you begin with the same character.
        However, the chances of perishable items get spoil is relatively
     6. Get as many friends as possible so that you can finish the
        swimsuit collection fast! They will help by giving you swimsuits as
        presents... Specific swimsuits can also be obtained via this
        method. These swimsuits will be available only if you have played
        with the gift giving character. For example, I have played with
        both Hitomi and Kasumi. I got a gift from Kasumi that features
        the Gentian.
     7. Playing volleyball does not affecting your character's
        relationship with the opposition team. Instead, it will affect the
        opposition team's relationship! It does have an impact on your
        character and her partner though... Thus the best solution is to
        WIN beach volleyball games.
     8. This matter concerns Ayane and Kasumi. It seems that if you get
        along well with either one of them, you will get a negative effect
        with other due their personal hates. Well, I managed to get more
        information about relationships...

    9.  The character's hobbies and activates (in-game) can also easily
        related to their preferred gifts.

    10. If you intend to give a swimsuit gift to a girl, make sure that
        the girl is not your partner (you have more opportunities in giving
        gift to her) and win games against that particular girl. Give her
        the swimsuit in evening (Ayane is a gift-thrower in the morning
                                 Exhibition Mode
    I recommend you to play this mode first before starting to play Zack's
    Island mode. This mode could give you the feel of how the beach
    volleyball game is being played and it is an ideal training ground.
    You will be able to choose your characters and given 10 places for
    stage select. You will be able to use the acquired swimsuits from
    Zack's Island Mode for these friendly games. You can have a 2-player
    versus game. (Too bad, Tecmo did not add a 2 tag-mode for what it has
    did for DOA 3...). When selecting your party, you find the following
    options appear underneath the character. The swimsuit selectable
    comprises of every single swimsuit that you obtained in each of the 3
    save files.

    These three status indicates your partner's ability. Confident will
    bring in a strong teammate for the game. Under level select, you
    can set your skill level and that of the computer-controlled players.
    Choose from "Weak", "Normal" and "Strong". You can also set the total
    points from 7, 10 and 15.
    The Exhibition mode is also a useful mode for determining the
    character's mood. If you observe carefully, the character icon has
    some minor changes as her mood changes. Recognise the icons and use it
    to help you in determine moods of your companions while in Zack
    Island's Mode. You can find a detailed FAQ featuring this at GameFAQs.
    That's all for the Exhibition Mode!

     6.a. Swimsuits
     Swimsuits are classified by characters. Character's swimsuit names
     carries an individual group of names. For example, Kasumi's swimsuits
     are named after flowers while Leifang's swimsuits are named after
     birds. Swimsuits can be bought at the Sports Shop at any point of day
     (morning, daytime or evening). However you can only purchase
     character-specific swimsuits. Certain swimsuits can only be obtained
     from Zack as gifts. In order to get swimsuits other than the
     character's own, you need to get it from gifts with the following 2
     1) Get into good relationship with the target character. She will give
        you a swimsuit gift eventually.
     2) Play as the target character on a vacation and give the swimsuit
        to your playing character. Choose "Leave tomorrow" and play as
        the playing character. You will find the swimsuit at your
     There is a problem with method 2 is that there is a possibility of
     the receiving character throwing away the swimsuit. The best solution
     is to build on good relationship with the character and give her the
     gift later. It is highly advisible not partner with the girl as you
     have more chances of giving gifts to the girl than night.
     Certain swimsuits upon equipped will give your character's additional
     features. For example, equipping the Black Cat swimsuit on Christie
     will features cat's ears on Christie.
     Zack will give 3 non-purchasable swimsuits to every character. These
     special swimsuits can only obtained for other character via gift
     giving. To collect all swimsuits, you may need to play for more than
     3 vacations. These swimsuits cannot be discarded. You cannot discard
     a swimsuit while the character is wearing it.
     There are a total of 304 buyable swimsuits. The swimsuit listing can
     be found each individual character's profile.
    6.b. Accessories
     Accessories are items that can be bought from Accessory Shop & can be
     equipped on the character. Unlike swimsuits, you can purchase any of
     accessories listed below with any characters. The "Favorites" refers
     the character listing that you should give the gift to.
     Favorites that are marked with ? are unknown and will be updated when
     I got the character's positive reactions about it. The favorites
     listing may be subjected to errors.

     6.d Original Soundtrack Listing
     You can view the list of soundtrack listing at the Radio Station. This
     game supports custom soundtrack where you can use saved soundtracks
     from your Xbox for the in-game as background music. Some of the
     soundtracks will be available after you have completed a vacation and
     they will be selectable only at the Radio Station. I have discovered a
     total of 18 soundtracks.

     You can manipulate the soundtrack playing with the black button (
     switch to next song) and white button (replays current song). You can
     set the soundtrack playing "On" with (A) button and switch the
     position (X) button and move it with the directional pad.
    Gambling is not always a sure-win thing. But you can use it to
    maximize your earnings in order to purchase those expensive swimsuits
    for Lisa, Christie and Tina. Before you start to gamble, it is highly
    advisable to gain some cash. If you lose all your money, you will be
    forced to return to the Hotel.
    The casino is only accessible at night from the Hotel menu. 
    Under the casino, it feature the following playable games:
    - Roulette
    - Blackjack
    - Poker
    - Slot Machine
    You can switch your chips from 100 Zack Dollars to 10,000 Zack Dollars.
    You can only bet once for Poker. Bet multiple times to top-up your
    bettings. Press Cancel (B button) that number of times to quit.
     The roulette is most toughest to play. You will find your other
     companions betting on roulette where every character is represented by
     her own color chip. The color chip is as follows:
     Kasumi  - Pink       Leifang  - Yellow    Tina   - Blue
     Hitomi  - Sky Blue   Christie - Black     Ayane - Purple
     Helena  - White      Lisa     - Red
     Only 4 players can play the roulette at one time. You can bet at
     multiple squares within a time limit. You can view the scoreboard by
     hitting the (Y) button. Hit (A) and use D-Pad to place your bets.
     Hit (X) to commence the game.
     Your objective is guess where the ball will land on the roulette. The
     roulette is marked with black, red and green. You can choose to bet on
     odds or evens, columns or evens or even the individual numbers. It is
     possible to bet on all 38 spots but you will still lose as the odds
     are at most 36:1...
     I still need to more research. I would be happy if someone could help
     me to explain this...
     Blackjack is probably the most famous poker related game. Your
     objective is to draw a set of cards to reach 21 points as close as
     - If you get more than 21 points, you will lose your bet.
     - Banker must draw a card if its total is less than 16 and must stay
       at 17 and above.
     - The game will end automatically if the banker gets Blackjack (21)
     - Aces can be considered as 11 or 1 points.
     - K, Q, J and 10 are considered as 10-points card
    Blackjack situations:
     - Insurance will be prompted when a banker's card shows an Ace and a
       covered card. If you choose "Yes"
       1) Banker's card is 21 - you will not lose any money
       2) Banker's card is not 21 - you will lose 1.5x of your bet.
       If you choose "No"
       1) Banker's card is 21 - you lose 1.5x of your bet
       2) Banker's card is not 21 - the game resumes
     - You will get 1.5x of your bet if you hit Blackjack (i.e. a 10-pts
       card and an ace)
     (A) Hit - Take another card
     (B) Stand - Keep the cards that you currently held.
     (X) Double Down - take an additional card to double your initial bet.
         Split - if your cards are of the same value. You can have 2
         "hands". If the split cards are Aces, you can get only an
         additional card per Ace.
     (Y) Surrender - take back half of your bet and give up the game.
     Mathetically, you can manipulate your winnings with some calcuations.
     A deck of cards consists of 52 cards. Thus calcuating...
     Chances of obtaining a card's value is...
     = 7 or > 7         (4x 7p + 4x 8p + 4x 9p + 4x 10p + 4x J + 4x Q +
                         4x K) / 52 x 100% = 53.8%
     10-value card      (4x 10p + 4x J + 4x Q + 4x K)/52 x 100% = 30.7%
     < 5 (include Aces) (4x 5p + 4x 4p + 4x 3p + 4x 2p + 4x A)/52 x 100%
                        = 30.7%
     Ace                = (4x A )/52 * 100% = 7.69%
     < 7     28/52 x 100% = 53.8%
     < 6     24/52 x 100% = 46.1%
     < 5     20/52 x 100% = 38.4%
     < 4     16/52 x 100% = 30.7%
     < 3     12/52 x 100% = 23.1%
     < 2     08/52 x 100% = 15.4%
     The reason for the high probability of drawing a 10-pt card is because
     of K, Q and J cards considered as 10-pt cards. Thus, there are sixteen
     10-pt card as compared to 4 cards of other numbers.
     It sounds logical that if you get 20, you should not hit as due to low
     percentage of getting an Ace. Do not hit if you get 17-pts or more as
     the chances of getting a card higher than 4 is definitely more than
     30.7%. If you want to know more about DOAX: Blackjack check out Agent
     Pliksen's Gamble FAQ, which is also available at GameFAQs 
     Poker is a fun game but you can only bet once. You will be issued 5
     cards where you need to draw a second time. You are allowed to hold
     your cards with the (X) button and cards that are not under hold will
     be swapped with new cards. You will earn money if your cards matches
     any one of the odds:
     Hands and Pay Rates
     Five Cards             50x     Flush             5x
     Royal Straight Flush   30x     Straight          4x
     Straight Flush         20x     Three Cards       3x
     Four Cards             10x     Two Pairs         2x
     Full House              6x     Joker             1x
     If you match any of the above combinations, you will win back your bet
     amount along with the pay rates. If your cards are combination of the
     Hands (listed in the chart above), you will be allowed to play a 
     "Double Up" Game. If you got a Joker (Zack), you will be allowed to
     play the "Joker" Game.
     Getting the correct match
     The chances of obtaining good hand such as Royal Straight Flush is
     *extremely* slim. Your chances are higher if you discarded 3 cards,
     instead of 2 cards. The chances of getting a better set of cards is
     Note: If you fail the "double up" or selecting the Joker, you will
           lose only the original bet.
     "Double Up" Game
     If you hit the hands listed on the chart above, you will be given an
     option whether to "double up" your odds. This is probably best way
     to earn quick money. "Double Up" will result you to earn the winnings
     with the odds double. There are a total of 5 cards and open card will
     be shown with it facing up. Your objective is to choose a card that
     is higher than the facing card. For example, if the card is 5 of
     Spades, you need to get 6 and above. Spade of Ace is considered the
     largest and Joker beats any card on the list.
     There are at least 1 Joker among the 4 choices and this means the
     chances of winning the "Double Up" is high. It is 50-50 chance of
     getting a card higher than the initial card. However, the chances
     will be lower, as you goes on...
     "Joker" Game
     The Joker card game is a simple draw-a-Joker game. Initially, 2 cards
     will be laid on the table. You need to draw a Joker. Subsequently,
     there will be 4 cards if you have drawn the Joker in the previous
     draw. The odds are pretty good as draw the Joker once will double
     your bet money, twice will win you 2x of your bet money up to a total
     of 5 wins. It is basically based on your guessing and luck...
     Slot Machine
     There are total of 8 slot machines (one for each character ^_^:) in
     the game. The payout rate is different and some them could give you
     heavy losses if you are unlucky. You can also identify the character's
     likes from the machines, for example you see butterflies theme in
     Ayane's slots machine and dolphins in Helena's slots machine
     Controls: (A) Bet           Left Analog Stick - move the camera view.
               (X) Starts        You can view odds on the upper part of the
               (B) Cancel        slot machine.
     In my opinion, these is the "hardiest to win" form of gambling. All of
     these based on luck. You need to match three slots according to the
     score chart to earn money. The odds ranges from 5x to 500x! For
     example, you bet 100 zack dollars and matches a selection that pays
     you of odds of 100, you will get 100 x 100 = 100,000 Zack Dollars!
     But in some of slot machines, there are negative values that could
     cost you a fortune in losing a lot of money. If no match is made, you
     will not earned any cash...
     Slot Machines and their Payout Rates

     3x       All slots show this icon
     Any 2    2 of the slot shows this icon
     Any 1    1 of the slot shows this icon
     or       The slots show 2 of these icons. 
              (For example: Dagger or Bar. You win if the slots shows 2
               daggers and bar or 2 bars and a dagger)

     Slot machines are difficult to win but they offer great payouts.
     However, some of the slot machines offer negative odds. If you bet
     100 Zack Dollars, you hit an odd that gives -100, you will lose 
     100,000 Zack Dollars! The most profitable and risky slot machine is
     Christie's - The Target. It is advisible to set your chips to 100 Z
     dollars instead of 10,000 Z. If you hit -500 (3 Sixes on Christie's
     jackpot with 10,000 Z), you will lose 5 million!
     Recommended machines: All except for Christie, Tina & Ayane
                                 Secrets & Hints
    Skip to the Ending
    Once you have completed a 14-day vacation with any character, you will
    find an additional option appearing at the Hotel menu that says "Leave
    Tomorrow". By selecting this, it will end the current character's
    vacation and proceed to the ending. It will applies on Day 2 of that
    character's current vacation.
    Complete Ending
    Complete the 14-day vacation with any one of 8 gals. You will be able
    to view the ending. Wait for the credits to view the aftermath of
    Zack's Island.
    Additional Soundtracks
    Practically, some of the soundtracks are available at various parts of
    the day. Some of the soundtrack are available in morning while some are
    only available in evening. You need to enable them with (A) button by
    visiting the Radio Station.
    Visor Trick
    To have this trick work, you need a transparent visor for the character.
    The character needs to wear a swimsuit has some sort-of-see through. Go
    to the Poolside. The character should be lying on the bench. Change the
    camera view with the L trigger and you should get a view that you will
    be view through the visor. You will see the character's skin & some
    stars covering those sensitive parts.

    2) How I get quick money?
       The best way is win beach volleyball games with large winning
       margins. Play the hopping game for last 4 days could get you
       at least 30,000 Z dollars per day if you have mastered that mini-
       game. Gambling helps but it is rather risky.
    3) How do I give the Venus swimsuit to <insert girl's name>?
       You need to play as Lisa as only you can purchase the Venus swimsuit
       while using her. First of all, you need to pamper the girl with a lot
       of love gifts. Next get Lisa to partner with that girl. Continue and
       improve the relationship with a series of "likes" and "love" gifts.
       Win beach volleyball games and give the swimsuit on the 13th day of
       the vacation.
    4) Is there NUDE or NAKED mode in the game?
       Absolutely no. This game is rated as Matured.
    5) Does the rumoured TOPLESS CODE by Electronic's Gaming Monthly works?
       It DOES NOT WORK!
       Practically, it was another joke by the creators of the magazine. I
       have tested the code out. I have received e-mails regarding this
       code. According to my readers, the code is said to be done in the
       following steps:-
       In order to activate "Topless Mode", you need to finish a vacation
       with a new saved file under 0:13 by using any other girl except for
       1) Choose to partner with Lisa.
       2) Visit accessory shop as told and exit.
       3) Visit unoccupied places where you can view gravure movies. As
          soon as you enter the gravure movie, choose to exit immediately.
       4) In the evening, you will be forced to play a beach volleyball
          game. Hit START to pause the game and choose to give up.
       5) Do not visit the Casino at night and choose "Go to Bed" ASAP.
       6) For the remaining days of the vacation, visit unoccupied places
          to view gravure movies and quickly exit them. Go to bed when
          your character is back at the hotel during night time.
       7) Do this and view the ending credits. View your saved file and
          it must be under 0:13 to activate the mode.
       8) To activate, play a vacation with any character. Hit (Y) on
          the current swimsuit that the character is wearing. The "W"
          (wear) symbol will be replaced with "T" (topless).
       [Thanks to Ryoichi Toraneko <rtoraneko@yahoo.com> & Joe Smith
       To do it under 13 minutes, you can go to the poolside and choose
       "Take a rest" for a gravure movie. I have did that and get it under
       12 minutes for the entire vacation. The (Y) button does not have
       any impact on the swimsuit inventory screen.
       I have seen from the message boards at GameFAQs that you need to do
       it twice and save the second time on a memory card. Thus apparently
       is FALSE as you cannot save the file on the memory card. All saves
       have to be done in the console itself!
       Once again, I would like to repeat the code does not work and it is
       NOT A REAL CODE! By the way, do not trust the screenshots too much
       as they can be edited. I believe it is another APRIL'S FOOLS JOKE
       from Electronic's Gaming Monthly (EGM)
