The game places Parappa's neightborhood at the same time of day indicated by the PlayStation2's time setting. For example, if you set the Playstation2's time to 11:30 a.m., it will be bright and sunny in the game. If it is 7:00 p.m., it would be sunset. If you set the time to 10:30 p.m. it will be dark outside.
Go though the opening FMV sequence to the part where PaRappa is writing his name and all the characters appear. Wait until a demo of the game appears. Go though the demo and the opening FMV sequence will appear again. Go though that and go though the part where PaRappa writes his name and wait again. Instead instead of them showing a demo, the colorful noodles will appear on the sides of the screen and the song will start playing.
Successfully complete the game with the yellow hat to unlock a new dog house that allows you to listen to any song in levels that you finished with a cool rating.
Successfully complete the game with the yellow hat, then do the "Secret song" trick. Go though the whole song, then a music video with Sunny singing her intro music on stage will begin.
Go directly to song: At the stage select screen, simultaneously press and hold L1 and L2, and select a stage, still holding the buttons until the stage loads. You will go directly to the song of that stage.
The only way that managed to get me a cool rating was to press the buttons displayed on screen in a random order and quite fast. Your meters should go up slowly and eventually you will get a cool rank. In this mode, the other rapper will leave the level allowing you to freestyle, but watch out, as your rank can go back down to good if you don't keep the pace up.
At the stage select screen, hold R1 amd R2, then choose a stage. When the game begins, all of the icons are replaced by ninja stars.
At the stage selection screen,, hold L1 andL2 to go strait to the tune.
There is actually a way to skip the boring practice screen with the stupid talking radio. Just press start when the practice begins and you will go to the level.
3.how to get a 'cool' rating
4.some codes and tips courtsy of:Sateliteuser34, Badluckvixen, Alex Morgan and belkin from Gamewinners.com
Once you complete the game you are rewarded with a new beanie. Each beanie represents a harder difficulty.
the orange beanie is the default and represents easy.
When you complete all eight levels you get the blue beanie = normal mode
next, you get a pink hat = hard mode
finally, you get the yellow beanie = very hard.
now you are finished with all the hats, you can select them with the right analogue stick at the 'press start menu'.
Also, when you comlete the game with all the beanies, you will see a building behind Guru Ant which looks like PaRappas head but is in fact the record store. The only unlocked record is 'come a long way', the song that Sunny sings at the picnic.To ulock new records, you need to finish a level with a 'cool' rating. For example Beard Burger master + cool rating = beard buger record.
3.How to get a 'cool' rating
Now dont flame me if this does not work because THIS IS how you get a cool rating but it is hard. Even i have trouble getting cool rating. To get a cool rating, you should try not to copy what they say, out rap them, out groove them. To do this, press the button combination in a different order and in time with the beat.check the three meters at the bottom of the screen to see how well you are doing. If you can get all three of them quite far on the plus side that should boost you up.
