How do you get big head mode? Also, many games have big head modes. It's not really a reference to one game, but to freaking tons of games. --Hagurumon

I believe that NBA Jam was the first game to use this code that became standard. But the question of how to get it remains - I don't think we ought to have a fun fact about a mode without an explanation of how to get to it. - Tim333


49.99 km?

Can someone validate this statement by providing the combinations: "There are five different special combinations that can be put together on the 'Choose it out' screen, each of which gives you a special name rather than 'Steak Styles'. One of which allows you to start the race at 49.99 km." ? JoeyDay (Talk) 13:16, 19 Jan 2005 (MST)

Yeah I wasn't sure if I should write all the details out or leave them to be found. I cheated by decompiling it so I guess I felt bad posting the details.

We need somebody to do confirmation before I remove it, since it's taking me way too long to puzzle out every single possible combination there could be. --TheNintenGenius 15:34, 19 Jan 2005 (MST)

.5k Glitch

I know you're supposed to walk off into blackness at 1K. But, when attempting to see this, there was a minor graphical glitch right after I crossed .5k (the message in the background was "These boots were mad|" [e for it], which then stopped abruptly as the crowd turned to white for a few pixels.) Is this normal? --Jay 12:18, 20 Jan 2005 (MST)

Yes. I found similar glitches at 1.38 K, 2.53 K, 3.40 K, 4.53 K... you get the idea. It's nothing, just a minor glitch. --Tim333

parody of Olympic Games (PS2)?

I disagree with that this is a parody of any PS2 game. The reference seems to be far older.

I believe this is meant to refer to The Activision Decathlon, where all of the running was done by moving the joystick left-right-left-right. The 1500 meter run was incredibly taxing; the 50k racewalker seems to be an extension of the concept. -- sensei256

I'm not entirely sure which game this is parodying, but it's definitely far, far older than any PS2 game. I've removed the fact.
P.S. Please sign your posts. — InterruptorJones[[]] 11:21, 8 Feb 2005 (MST)

hard man

Is this game impossible to win? -Kinsey

Yes. You can get to the end, but you always place third. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 20:01, 8 Aug 2005 (UTC)
It's not hard to win, it's just mind numbingly tedious. That was the point of it.

New Racewalker Image

I nominate that we use the image uploaded by user:Slowbie for the image on this page. I don't like the "FAULT!". Anyone else agree? Texas 03:18, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
