Hints and Cheats...
All Tracks and Bonus Cars
For access to all tracks, the Roach, the Neon and the bonus track, enter the password 81GGD5 (American version) or 61GGD5 (European.)
We can't get you into the Rolling Stones, but here's the next best thing. Start a new Contest and press R at the bike selection screen. When the name prompt appears, press R again and enter your name as "roller".
For the ultimate challenge, try the "Extreme Mode." Simply enter "xtreme" as your name at the name selection screen (Contest Mode) and XG cranks up the speed even more. Combine with Fisheye for some insane action.
Enter the word "ghostly" at the name entry screen (Contest Mode) and all the track polygons will be transparent. You can now see right through walls and even the very ground you race on.
Go to CONTEST mode and enter your name as "fisheye" (all lower case.) If you did it right you'll hear a tone and the screen will be distorted when you start racing.
Enter the word "magnify" (all lower keys) at the name entry screen and your view will be strangely distorted (magnified). Your bike is now at the very bottom and everything will seem huge.
When you go off a ramp, use the Super Boost then press DOWN on the control stick.
Play as the Roach
To earn the Roach you must first finish Contest Mode on the Meltdown setting.
Race Upside Down
Enter the word "antigrav" at the name entry screen (Contest Mode) and you will finally be able to race upside down without standing on your head.
Race as the Extreme Team
Try out this fun Easter Egg: Enter your name as "XGTEAM" at the name entry screen (you should hear a confirmation noise), then go back and change it to the first name of one of the game's programmers, such as Ash, Greg, John, Shawn, Justin (you can find more names in the credits). Tthe faces of the Extreme team will now appear on top of the bikes.
For a touch of chaos, enter your name as "arsenal". You'll receive a different type of missile every few seconds.
The programmers of Extreme-G have hidden the face of Probe's director in the game. Enter your name as "FERGUS," then go into the Shoot 'em Up Mode. The drones will now have turned into Fergus's face.
Enter "banana" at the name entry screen (Contest Mode). The tracks are now super slippery and the racing is even tougher!
Enter "stealth" (all lower keys) at the name select screen (Contest Mode) and you will hear a confirmation sound. Now start a race and all drivers should be invisible, but you can still see their shadows and weapons.
Enter "uglymode" at the name selection screen (Contest) and you can see what Extreme-G would look like without mip-mapping and texture transparencies.
Ultra Speed Burst
When you go through a nitro haze, use your own nitro for an extreme burst of speed.
So Extreme-G is still not fast enough for you? Enter the word "nitroid" at the name selection screen and you get unlimited turbo boosts. Try this code with the fisheye code for some of the fastest racing ever seen!
Win by Quitting
Enter your name as "RA50" at the name selection screen. If you now quit during a race at any point, the game will still pretend that you finished it in whatever position you were when you selected the quit option.
Want to know what a Color Virtual Boy version of Extreme-G would look like? Start a new Contest and enter your name as "wired" (all lower keys). This will eliminate all textures and only give you wireframes.
