A menu appears on the screen from which you have to decide how to play the
game. For example, whether you're playing with a joystick or keyboard (and with
which keys), whether you're playing alone or with two or three players, which
event you want to begin with, etc.
Playing with the Joystick : To select the symbols from the menu, move the
joystick in the desired direction and confirm by pressing the FIRE button.
Playing with the keyboard : To select the symbols from the menu, use the cursor
keys and confirm by pressing the space-bar. If you want to redefine the keys,
click on the first symbol at the top of the screen (the arrows).
Number of players : Select the number of players by clicking on the different
symbols. Click on the one on the right where you can see 3 skiers if you're
playing with three people, or in the middle if playing with two and on the left
if playing alone.
N.B. The different players must play one after the other.
Then type in your name.
The All-Round Test : If you choose the all-round test, you will take part in
three events one after the other (jumping, freestyle, and slalom).
The three separate events : You will only choose to do the jumping, the
freestyle or the slalom.
Next to these events, you can see the symbols which represent podiums. They
will give you the best score recorded for each event.
1. THE JUMP
This event is divided into two parts : - Approaching the ski-jump:
The only command needed is acceleration (->). - The jump itself : Use the
directions <- and -> to balance the jump.
N.B. You have three attempts. The best will be taken into account on the score
This event takes place on two courses, each being 20 seconds long. You have to
reach a maximum score by doing the different movements one after the other.
These movements can be made in the centre of the wake or on the waves made by
the boat. To move the skier sideways, use the keys <- and ->.
The movements are obtained by pressing the FIRE button and a direction key or
the space-bar and a direction key (or the keys that you redefined). Make sure
the fire button or space-bar are held down whilst the choice of direction is
Movements in the middle of the wake :

\ ^ /

/ v \
N.B. With the keyboard you can obtain the diagonal directions by pressing two
keys at the same time.
Explanation of the freestyle movements :
90° is a side-slip.
180° is a half-turn.
360° is a complete turn.
540° is one and a half turns.
Some of these movements can be done using the STEP method. That means that the
skier puts his leg over the traction rope whilst rotating.
3. THE SLALOM
This event takes place in a vast stretch of water. You have to slalom between
six buoys from left to right.
N.B. You have to go between the first two buoys (they call this a gate), and
above all, between the last two at the end of the course. The buoys are very
easy to recognise because they are close together. As you go along, you will
restart the course with a shorter rope.
To begin press DEL.
COMMANDS To loosen the rope
To go left <- -> To go right
To pull the rope
