Version 1.0 (04/30/99-05/02/99):
This is when I started my FAQ.  Didn't get far because I started at 10:00 p.m. 
on a Friday night.  I will do more on the weekend.
I woke up in the morning and started to work.  Don't think it will be done 
today, but probably tomarrow.
I started around 3:00-3:30 p.m. on Sunday.  I don't think I'll get the whole 
thing done today.  Ah, I got it done a quarter to 9:00 p.m.!

Hello!  My name is Brian.  This is my first time to make an FAQ.  Don't know 
where to start when I first started making it!  Don't know when it will get 
done, but it will get done sooner or later {:^)  Hopefully you will find lots of 
information about Star Fox 64 you didn't know about.


<>
All right, this whole this started in the Lylat System.  These planets circling 
around the sun enjoyed their years of fun.  Well, that is until Andross gone 
mad.  He has made a secret weapon and then threw it at the Cornerian planet.  
Lots of the major cities were destroyed, and also innocent civilians.  That's 
when General Pepper knew that Andross had to be caught.  With his team, they 
eventually captured him and sent him to Venom.  But that didn't stop Andross.  
Not at all.

A couple years after the capture, Pepper found some strange things happening in 
Venom on his computer.  He didn't know what it was, so he sent his team to 
Venom.  Once he did, they never came back.  Pepper then found out that his team 
members were all dead, destroyed by Andross.  Pepper then knew that he had to 
send his Top Ace pilots: James McCloud, Pigma Dengar, and Peppy Hare, to explore 
the area.

Before they reached Venom, they found it difficult to reach to reach Venom.  
Probably the torchure was going through all the planets.  When they reached 
Venom, Pigma had gotten hypnotized in a light beam.  It made him betray his team 
members and join Andross's team.  When the remaing two pilots reached Andross, 
they didn't know what they were in for.  Peppy went flying all over the place, 
and then he was blow away out of the arena.  Then, it was all James.  He was the 
last one.  But soon, he would be the last one..to die.  Andross grabbed the 
Arwing in his hands.  The plane was trying to wiggle out, but couldn't.  The 
Arwing then got crushed with James in it, and while it was crunching, steamy 
blood was pouring out the bottom.  Peppy saw all what was happening.  It was the 
plane's oil and fuel...and James's blood.  Peppy then escaped in horror to tell 
Fox, James's son, about his father's fate.

When Andross knew that the Cornerian army was out to get him, he consumed with 
rage, and Andross declared war on the Lylat System.  After a while, Pepper's 
team has failed, and Andross has taken control of every planet, including 
Corneria.  Pepper knew that his army couldn't stop Andross alone, so he had to 
send his other 4 Top Ace pilots: Fox McCloud, Peppy Hare, Slippy Toad, and Falco 
Lumbardi.

Here is the list of the characters in the game and my description about them. 
Now remember--these are my opinions, so don't go e-mailing me and dissing me 
that you think they're neat and I think they're stupid.

>FOX McCLOUD
Unbelievable--He's one of the youngest members in the Star Fox army and he's the 
leader.  I bet Falco is complaining on that one!  This guy is pretty cool, and 
he should be a real pilot and fly in planes in the "real world."  Still, I would 
have to say, he could get a little dull in dialect.

>SLIPPY TOAD
How many of you guys think that this guy is a real crybaby? "I!"  This dude is a 
real annoying butthole if you ask me.  God, I mean, he screams and shouts for 
help whenever he sees an enemy and he always repeats his gosh darn words all the 
time!  But, the best thing about him is that he can analyze the boss's life 
meter.  Heck, they should of given that to Peppy as a skill.  I still wonder how 
he managed to build the Blue-Marine.

>PEPPY HARE
A wise old rabbit.  He is the oldest in the Star Fox team, but he can give great 
info if you are playing this game for your couple first times.  He just gets a 
little annoying repeating the words, "Don't give up!  Trust your instincts!"

>FALCO LOMBARDI
Do you know what ticked off means?  If you don't, ask Falco.  He has tons of it!  
All I do is try to ignore him.  Don't accidently shoot him or shoot at his 
target.  But, besides that, he could actually be the team leader if he would 
calm down.  But then, this wouldn't be a game, would it?

>GENERAL PEPPER
The "Top Gun" of the Star Fox army.  He won't join your team, but he really 
needs to save the Lylat System.

>ROB64
This is the robot that runs the Great Fox.  He his a nice dude, because if one 
of your team members are about to die, ROB64 will call them and tell him to come 
on the Great Fox and get repaired.  He also helps out on giving you items when 
you need them.  If this guy was on your team, you would kick butt. 
But then, who would run the Great Fox?  General Pepper??  HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

>KATT
She appears in: Zoness, Macbeth, and Sector Z.  You will have to be at Zoness to 
meet her a second time.  If you destroy all the lights, you will travel to 
Sector Z and meet her there.  If you don't destroy all the lights, you will 
travel to Macbeth.  Well, she is Falco's girlfriend, and she can be a 
pest...like Falco.  Hey!  I think they make a match!

>BILL
You first meet this guy in Katina.  If you destroyed the mothership, you will go 
to Solar where you'll meet him.  If you didn't derstroy it, you will meet Bill 
in Macbeth.  This guy should be in the Star Fox team, but he does have his own 
team.  This guy is very calm and friendly and could be the best leader.  Well, 
he is, but not in the Star Fox team.  Just don't shoot him or then he will get 
mad at you.


<>
Here is my list of items and power-ups for weapons.

>LASER UPGRADE
This is the item where it can upgrade your laser.  You start out in the game 
with a Single Laser.  Then you can get these until it's up to a Twin Laser, then 
a Hyper Laser.  Remember, you will have your Laser Upgrade until you die or lose 
a wing.  Then you will go back to a Single Laser.  Collect 1 of these Laser 
Upgrades to get a Twin Laser, and then collect another one to get a Hyper Laser.

>SMART BOMB
These bombs are not actually smart--they don't target and hit!  Oh well, at 
least they give off a lot of damage to enemies.  My advice is to not use these 
on bosses.  They go through them.

>SUPPLY RING
Get these and your shield gauge will recover a little bit.

>MIDDLE SUPPLY RING
This sucker will recover your shield gauge about 3x-5x more than a Supply Ring.

>SHIELD RING
Get three of these to make your shield gauge twice as big.  It will also recover 
some of your life, too.  If you collect another 3 of them, you will get a 1-up.  
Remember: You can take the left-over rings to the next planet if you have any.

>WING REPAIR
This will only appear if you lost a wing.  It can appear in tricky locations, so 
listen to the "beep, beep, beep..." until you find it.  If you grab the Wing 
Repair, your wings will be fixed.  Or, if you just finish the stage, they'll be 
repaired, also.

>GREAT FOX BOX
I call it this because the Great Fox will give you a box with a helpful item 
that suits you.  If you don't have a lot of bombs, ROB64 will give you a bomb.  
If you need just a little more life, ROB64 will give you a Supply Ring.  If you 
need life, ROB64 will give you a Middle Supply Ring.  If you're lucky, you will 
get a Shield Ring.  And, of course, if you don't have your wing(s), ROB64 will 
give you a Wing Repair.  If you need a Laser Upgrade, he'll give you that too, 
but that hardly ever happens!  Hey...this should be called the ROB64 Box {:^)

Normally, FAQs won't give walkthroughs, but what the heck?  It couldn't hurt!

{THE EASY ROUTE}
----------------
>CORNERIA
Machine: Arwing
Level  : Easy
BWeapon: Single
Medal  : 150 hits
Boss   : 1-Granga
         2-Attack Carrier

You can survive with a Single Laser during the level.  Oops, forgot to tell you 
what the B means on BWeapon.  It stands for "Best Weapon."  It could be hard to 
get the medal in this level, but you can always try again!  First off, Slippy 
already gets in trouble!  Shoot the enemy off his tail.  Continue on and on.  
Make sure to destroy the robots that are knocking down the building.  They will 
give you a HIT+5.  A little after the checkpoint, you will have to save Falco.  
If you don't, you will have to beat the normal boss.  Whenever you reach the 
shore, you will find arches in the water.  Go under them all to go into the 
waterfall and beat the special boss.  If you don't, you will have to go through 
the regular route to the regular boss.
GRANGA (NORMAL BOSS): If you have the hyper laser, listen.  Shoot one of his 
legs off before you run into him.  Then, fly to the mountains.  Make a U-Turn 
and when you see Granga, shoot him in the green box as fast as you can until he 
blows up.  This should only take 15 sec. to do.  You will go to Meteo.  
ATTACK CARRIER (SPECIAL BOSS):  Destroy his arms off whenever they are open, and 
then hit the middle of the carrier until it blows up.  You should go to Sector 
Y.

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

>METEO
Machine: Arwing
Level  : Easy
BWeapon: Twin-Hyper
Medal  : 200 hits
Boss   : Radgar

Hopefully all of you know why this "so-called" planet is called Meteo.  'Cuz 
meteors and meteorites are shooting everywhere!  To my knowledge, make sure to 
keep Peppy alive.  He warns you about the booby traps.  Here's an example: After 
the beginning flying meteors, Peppy will worn you that there are ships hiding 
behind the big meteorites.  The best way to get 200 hits in this level is to go 
through the warp, otherwise get a Hyper Laser and shoot those meteors!  This 
level is not really a "walkthrough" level.  Just expect to see more of the same.
RADGAR (NORMAL BOSS): This dude can be a pain at first!  First of all, you need 
to take out his shield.  Do that by hitting the yellow triangles.  Be very 
careful of not hitting the shield too often.  If it gets bright green, it will 
let out a big laser shot.  After you take out the sheild, shoot for the big 
yellow diamond, but be careful of his laser beam.  If it hits you and you have a 
half amount of life left, about a 65% chance that you will die.  After you do 
that, you'll entirely destroy the back end of the ship.  But, it's not over yet!  
He'll turn his ship around.  Destroy the two yellow rectangles.  Be extremly 
cautious!  He will let out an extremely very powerful laser beam.  If you get 
stuck in it, you are dead for sure (or very darn close to it)!  After you 
destroy the yellow triangles, he will lose power and be blown up.  You will be 
heading to Fortuna.
WARP (NO BOSS - SPECIAL WARP): This warp is very easy to get through, and you 
should be able to get the medal in Meteo.  This warp should take you to Katina.

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

>FORTUNA
Machine: Arwing
Level  : Easy-Medium
BWeapon: Twin
Medal  : 50 hits
Boss   : Star Wolf Team

This should be one heck of an easy medal to get indeed.  Just shoot 10 or more 
ships before the Star Wolf team comes and then shoot the Star Wolf team down in 
5 minutes.  It's that simple!
STAR WOLF TEAM: These guys are the boss.  Star Wolf, Leon, Pigma Dengar, and the 
other dude (forgot name).  If you defeat them and disarm the bomb, you will go 
to Solar.  If you fail and the bomb blows up, you will go to Sector X.

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

>SECTOR X
Machine: Arwing
Level  : Medium
BWeapon: Twin-Hyper
Medal  : 150 hits
Boss   : Spyborg

Oh boy!  This planet has been totally destroyed...and totally armed with 
enemies!  This should be a very easy medal to get!  Make sure to save Peppy in 
the middle of the level--use a bomb to destroy them all.  You won't hurt Peppy.  
Remember, it's a SMART bomb!  If you went to Katina before, Bill will show up 
helping to go through the warp by shooting the tiles for you.  Just shoot them a 
couple more times and they will open for you to go in!
SPYBORG (BOSS): Here is Andross's Secret Weapon.  Shoot the eyes only whenever 
they glow yellowish.  Whenever his head blows off, doesn't mean that he's dead!  
He still has some more juice in him!  Make sure to kill the rest of him off 
before Slippy rushes in and gets slapped to Titania.  If he doesn't get slapped, 
you will go to Macbeth.
WARP (NO BOSS): There is also another route.  To go to Sector Z.  This warp is 
not as easy as Meteo's warp, and you have about a 70% chance of losing a wing or 
dying.

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

>TITANIA
Machine: Landmaster
Level  : Medium
BWeapon: Single Shot
Medal  : 150 hits
Boss   : Goras

You will end up here if Slippy has been sent flying here.  Remember, you can 
only go here and there is only one route out of here--defeating the boss.  This 
level can be very hard if you don't know how to control the Landmaster. Refer to 
the instruction booklet on how to run it.  Be careful of all the catuses, bombs, 
and detonators!  That's all the advice about this level that I know of.
GORAS (BOSS): Now this is some boss.  He looks like a dog!  First off, shoot the 
"paws".  While you are shooting them, Slippy will be calling.  After you shoot 
the "paws", the whole body of Goras will come out.  In one of his arms is 
holding Slippy.  Shoot that arm first, then the rest of them.  Becareful of his 
tail whip and strong laser.  Hover over the tail whip and barrel roll out of the 
way for the laser.  Whenever his arms get shot off, shoot for his chest until he 
dies.  This can be a tough battle!

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

>BOLSE
Machine: Arwing
Level  : Easy-Medium
BWeapon: Twin
Medal  : 150 hits
Boss   : Star Wolf Team

This level is in all-range mode.  Here is the step-by-step guide: First, shoot 
the towers that is guarding the core.  Until the towers are destroyed, 
everything is force field--even the enemies!  When the towers are destroyed, the 
enemies will be unarmed, so you can shoot them down until the Star Wolf team 
comes
STAR WOLF TEAM (BOSS): If you have beaten these guys in Fortuna, they won't show 
up so now all you have to do is destroy the core bar whenever is comes up.  
Otherwise, be prepared to fight them.  I would use a Hyper Laser to beat these 
guys, but hey, that's just me.  They can be won by the Twin Laser.  It may take 
a heck of a lot longer!

(THE MEDIUM ROUTE)
------------------
>KATINA
Machine: Arwing
Level  : Medium
BWeapon: Twin-Hyper
Medal  : 150 hits
Boss   : Enemy Mothership

This level is also in all-range mode.  You will meet your friend, Bill, here.  
Help him out!  There are two ways to get in it, and two ways to get out of it.  
Whenever you destroy 10 ships, the Enemy Mothership will show up. Keep shooting 
until the cool FMV plays.
ENEMY MOTHERSHIP (BOSS): Whenever the hatches go down, shoot them until they all 
blow off.  Then, shoot the core under 5 minutes.  If you destroy the mothership, 
you will go to Solar.  If the mothership destroys the Katina base, you will be 
headed to Sector X.

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

>SOLAR
Machine: Arwing
Level  : Medium-Hard
BWeapon: Hyper
Medal  : 100 hits
Boss   : Vulcain

No doubt about it--you are definitly in the eternal flames--and I don't mean the 
opposite of Heaven!  It's the sun, and you're gonna need the Hyper Laser to get 
through this level.  You could beat this level with Twin and it could be near 
impossible with the Single because the Fire Birds can take the heat!  Be very 
careful of the flames.  I always stay at the top of the screen until Bill comes 
with the Supply Rings.  You will meet him only if you defeat the mothership in 
Katina.  Otherwise, I just go right or left of the fire arches and the big 
hills.  Good luck in this level--and good luck with the boss!
VULCAIN (BOSS): There is only one way to leave this frying pan...and that is to 
beat the boss!  First of all, I want to tell you that this is not the Secret 
Weapon.  That is at Sector X.  I think this is the fire mutant from some game I 
played before--can't remember.  Is it one of the Metroids??  Anyway, to beat 
this dude you have to blow off the arms.  You will know once the fire comes 
flying out of his arm sockets.  Then, shoot the head until his head blows off 
and then he gets self-destructed.  Be careful of his fire splashes at you.  
Shoot the rocks that he spits out to get the Supply Ring.  This is a tough 
match--I think that's why Nintendo made the boss strategy easy.

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

>MACBETH
Machine: Landmaster
Level  : Medium-Hard
BWeapon: Single Shot
Medal  : 150 hits
Boss   : Mechbeth

If you like trains, this is the level for you!  Katt will show up if you met her 
in Zoness.  The only objective of this level is to blow up all the train tracks.  
Make sure you know how to use the hover technique for the Landmaster.  If you 
don't, it's this: R and Z button.  Well, good luck, that's all really I have to 
say about this level.  Well, I do I have more.  The way to blow up the train 
into the Macbeth Base!
MECHBETH (BOSS STAGE): If you have chosen to beat the bird, here's what to do.  
First of all, you have to blow off the legs and head.  Once the fake head is 
blown off, it'll use a very powerful laser beam at you.  Be careful of that!  
Then, you have to shoot the train's power unit whenever it is open.  The energy 
will go flying to the bird and hurt him so you can shoot him until he dies.  
Repeat if you didn't kill him the first time.
MECHBETH (BLOW UP TRAIN STAGE): To destroy the bird plus the train and the 
driver, shoot all the 8 switches, then shoot the switcher.  Once you shoot it, 
the switch will stick out.  Shoot at the switch to make the train switch tracks.  
It will then run into the Macbeth Base and then both the train and the base will 
blow up.  Make sure to have the Rumble Pak(tm) because you can really feel the 
rumble if you have fresh bateries!  You will also get a nice HIT+50 bonus {:^)

(THE HARD ROUTE)
----------------
>SECTOR Y
Machine: Arwing
Level  : Medium-Hard
BWeapon: Twin-Hyper
Medal  : 150 hits
Boss   : Shogun Guards & Shogun

Wow!  There are three bosses: 2 Shogun Guards and the original Shogun dude.  I 
won't explain how to beat them until a little bit later.  I want to tell you 
that this level is filled with robots.  If you watched the beginning FMV 
sequence, you will see that their laser guns can really hurt you, so that's why 
I also put this as Hard.  Also, you can beat this with Twin Laser for sure, but 
it is 10x as easier with the Hyper Laser.  This should be easy to get 150 hits 
if you count the boss.  Hey, you got a total of HIT+19 there!
SHOGUN GUARDS (MID-BOSS): These guys aren't the real boss, OKAY!  I put "(MID 
BOSS)" there, all right!  So stop e-mailing me about it {:^<>  Now, to beat 
these dudes--just shoot them until they blow up.  They both share the same boss 
meter, so Nintendo made a little easier for you.  Sly dogs!
SHOGUN (BOSS): Do the same thing with this boss like you did with the other 
bosses.  If you scored over 100 hits at the end of the level, you will be 
heading to Aquas, my next level walkthrough.  If you don't, you will be heading 
to Katina.

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

>AQUAS
Machine: Blue-Marine
Level  : Hard
BWeapon: Twin
Medal  : 150 hits
Boss   : Bacoon

If you do not know how to run the Blue-Marine, read the following.
-----------------------------------------------
HOW TO CONTROL THE BLUE MARINE: 
A=Shoot Laser  B=Shoot torpedo  R/Z=Barrel Roll
-----------------------------------------------
That's all there is to it!  Now, if things get all wacky, press A, B, and Z all 
together.  Remember--you have unlimited torpedoes, so that's why you can just 
use the torpedoes to beat the level, but you need some strong laser to beat the 
boss.  Twin will do.  Hyper is faster.  This level is very difficult to beat, so 
if you are having trouble, look in: Nintendo Power-Volume 99 (the GoldenEye 007 
issue) or the Star Fox 64 Player's Guide.  My advice is always use the barrel 
roll to beat the level.  And use the torpedoes on the enemies!  Good luck!
BACOON (BOSS): The shells mouth is being protected by barriers.  Shoot them 
until they turn colorful, and then use a torpedo on one of them.  Do the same 
thing on the other one.  Next, shoot the tubes to get more hits.  And whenever 
the mouth opens, shoot the cover to the eye until it disappears.  Then, shoot a 
torpedo in the eye.  Repeat until he dies.  After you beat the level, you will 
go to Zoness no matter what!

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

>ZONESS
Machine: Arwing
Level  : Hard
BWeapon: Hyper
Medal  : 250 hits
Boss   : Sarumarine

This level could be one of the hardest levels of the whole game.  Katt will show 
up sometime in the level.  Trust me--she is a pain!  You will have to cross 
strong ships over sea and on sea.  Make sure to get 3 Shield Rings to increase 
your shield gauge.  On the decks, make sure to destroy the boxes to get the 
items from them.  This level cannot be walkthroughed because it continues on 
just continuosly until you find the toxic wastes.  That is why the sea is so 
polluted.  And now, the boss.
SARUMARINE (BOSS): Here is how you defeat the tough boss.  Use a bomb to destroy 
the smoke stacks on top of the submarine.  Next, destroy one of the launchers.  
The sub will turn around.  Once the crane is picking up the launcher, shoot the 
crane 3 times with a bomb before the launcher comes back up.  Then, the sub will 
turn around.  Blast off the other launcher.  Now, this is why you NEED the Hyper 
Laser.  Shoot the ship with your laser until it the ship is sunk.  If you have 
the Twin Laser, it will take you up to 5 minutes to take down the ship and with 
the Single, it will take at least 7 minutes.  If you destroyed the enemy search 
lights, you will be heading to Sector Z.  If you have not destroyed all of the 
lights and was spotted, you will be heading to Macbeth.

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

>SECTOR Z
Machine: Arwing
Level  : Hard
BWeapon: Twin-Hyper
Medal  : 100 hits
Boss   : None

This is the only level with no boss.  It just has 5 missles coming toward the 
Great Fox and trying to destroy it...DESTROY IT!!!  Oh boy!  If you need help, 
read the following.
THE ATTACK OF THE GREAT FOX (NO BOSS): First off, you have to destroy the first 
wave of missles which include a total of 2 missles.  Destroy them off.  Your 
teammates will probably help you if they aren't busy or being chased by an 
enemy.  Then, the second wave will come out with a total of 3 missles.  Do the 
process once again.  If you have met Katt in Zoness, she will come and shoot the 
missles with you, too.  If the Great Fox doesn't get hit, you will go to Area 6.  
If the Great Fox gets WHAMMED!, then you will go to Bolse.

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

>AREA 6
Machine: Arwing
Level  : V. Hard
BWeapon: Hyper
Medal  : 300 hits
Boss   : Gorgon

The level is determined to be the hardest level since there are a lot of 
enemies, and since there are a lot of enemies, the medal meter has to be large, 
so Nintendo has put you to the test--nab 300 hits to get the medal!  Of course, 
the easiest way is to hit the satelites, right?  WRONG!  Just concentrate on the 
groups of enemies.  You can shoot some of the satelites, but not all of them you 
see.  This level is also very long, so it is important to get 3 sheild rings and 
the Hyper Laser.  It also wouldn't to have some extra lives.  After you complete 
the basic stage (line 1) you will reach the ships.  After you went through half 
the battle of the ships, you will reach the last line (line 3) you will run into 
harder ships and you will run into the boss, Gorgon.
GORGON (BOSS): This will be run into steps, OK?
Step 1 - Defeat the three tentacles
Step 2 - Shoot at the core until it turns red (it will then shoot a strong 
laser, so be careful)
Step 3 - Gorgon will then shoot out enemy ships so destroy them (it will then 
shoot a strong laser, so be careful)
Step 4 - Defeat the three tentacles to open the saucer
Step 5 - Shoot the core until it blows (repeat if you didn't destroy the core)
After you beat the boss, you will be headed to Venom (Stage 2)

(VENOM)
-------
>VENOM (STAGE 1)
Machine: Arwing
Level  : Medium
BWeapon: Twin-Hyper
Medal  : 200 hits
Boss   : 1-Rock Dude
         2-Andross
Arrival: From Bolse

If you didn't get to Area 6, you will have to go to Venom 1.  This place is not 
in all-range mode, so you have to shoot a lot of the Venom ships.  They are 
totally spreded over the Venom land, so it should be easy to get 200 hits.  Just 
make sure to have some bombs with you.  Otherwise, just try to shoot most of the 
ships down.
ROCK DUDE (MID-BOSS): Once you enter the temple, a rock dude (unknown) is 
running away from you.  To destroy the dude, shoot off is body parts until his 
head and body turn red.  Shoot them until the dude falls apart and crumbles.
TUNNEL (ROUTE TO ANDROSS - NO BOSS): This is just a tunnel to go to Andross.  It 
also has some power-ups, so make sure to grab ahold of each one.
ANDROSS (FAKE BOSS): Yep, this is the faker, but at least he is the final boss.  
Here's the easiest way to defeat him is to shoot one of his eyes.  Once one hand 
is itching an eye, shoot the other hand.  If you have the Hyper Laser and you 
have shot fast enough, the hand should blow off.  Do same thing to an eye.  He 
will not itch it so shoot the hand fast until it blows off.  I would shoot the 
right hand first, because he would then use a magic laser attack on you if you 
don't destroy the hand.  Then, after the hands are gone, destroy the face by 
shooting it.  Then, the face will be destroyed, uncovering a fake face machine.  
Shoot it until that blows up.  You have beaten the game...sort of.  After the 
credits, you will see the face of Andross in the sky, and he will also laugh, 
telling you that you haven't beaten the whole game.  Now try to go to Venom 2!

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

>VENOM (STAGE 2)
Machine: Arwing
Level  : Hard
BWeapon: Hyper
Medal  : 200 hits
Boss   : 1-Star Wolf Team
         2-Andross
         3-Andross's Brain
Arrival: From Area 6

Let's get started with the bosses because this is all-range mode, and once you 
enter, the Star Wolf team will invade.
STAR WOLF TEAM (MID-BOSS): If you have beaten these guys in Fortuna, so what?  
They are now rebuilt and some of their bodies are computer-generated.  Use the 
same strategy to defeat these characters.  The medal will be easy to get if you 
have the Hyper, because one enemy will be a HIT+50 if you beat him under 3 
minutes!  After you beat them, Fox will go in through the tunnel.
TUNNEL (ROUTE TO ANDROSS - NO BOSS):  Through this tunnel, there is a route to 
get totally equipped and I'm notta telling...oh, all right.  I will!  The route 
is: <--, -->, <--, <--, -->, -->.  Then, you will face the real Andross!
ANDROSS (FINAL BOSS - PT 1): Defeat this Andross exactly like the one in Venom 
1.  See that above.
ANDROSS (FINAL BOSS - PT 2): The screen will turn into all-range mode while 
Andross releases his true form--a brain.  Now, he says that he has the "brains" 
to rule the Lylat System...and kill you!  Kill him first by destroying the two 
"things".  Hit them until they blow up.  If forgot how much HIT points.  I think 
about HIT+3 or +4.  After you destroy those, shoot the backside of the brain 
until Andross dies.  Make sure to remember that he disappears whenever you hit 
him.  Don't run into his veins--they can really destroy you!  After you deliver 
the last hit, his veins will grab you and he will kill you with him.  After he 
dies, you realize that you aren't dead.  You were saved by...you father!?
THE "REAL" ENDING (OUT OF TUNNEL - NO BOSS): The last objective of the game is 
to follow James McCloud (your father's ghost).  You cannot hurt him in any way, 
so don't try it.  If you hit him with a Hyper Laser, he might turn red but that 
won't harm anything.  He goes very fast, so use your boost as much as you can.  
Make sure you can tune into the speed of this.  After you exit the tunnel, you 
have beaten the game.  Your teammates will congradulate you on your bravery.  
Congratulations!  You have beaten the MAIN GAME version of Star Fox 64!  Only 
true Star Fox people can beat the game in EXPERT version, so are you ready?

CONCLUSION: You may think you have beaten the WHOLE game, but you didn't!  Why 
do you think the medals are in the game?  Well, they're there, because whenever 
you collect them all, you will have the Lylat System in a new version--EXPERT 
mode and you will get the Soundtrack of Star Fox 64 straight from the CD (I 
think)!  Then, you will have to battle with Expert Mode!  The walkthrough is 
also the same for Expert Mode.  No changes except for more enemies and you will 
lose a lot of life easier and the bosses will take more shots to kill.  Once you 
get all the medals in Expert Mode, you will be rewarded for a true Star Fox 
pilot and you will get a new title screen for your game.  Nintendo tried to make 
the game longer, but I already got the title screen.  In the summertime of 1998 
and I got the game on Christmas day in 1997.  I'm good at this game because I've 
been practicing Expert Mode in the summer.  I think I played to much of it {:^)!

Well, this conludes my walkthrough.  Hopefully it helped!  If you have any

them in my next version!
