1.1 What is NUON
    Nuon is a media processor. The NUON chip for instance replace near all
the dumb (and fixed)circuitry inside a regular DVD player and can provide more
special effects, more function and is programmable. So a DVD player with a NUON
chip inside do not just decode MPEG, but can do a lot more for less money. And
the NUON processor is (it seem) easy to program.Nuon is an enhanced DVD players
making them Total Interactive Entertainment Centers. The Nuon boasts playing
DVD’s with more interactivity, better sound quality, and brings gaming to the
world of DVD’s. Keep in mind that the Nuon has transformed from a gaming system,
to a DVD player that plays games, and music.The Nuon was originaly dubbed
"The Mario Killer" as the first teasers of the system showed Mario's hat in a
puddle of blood by a big X (the system was still known as Project X at that
time). Games avaible at the machine's launch include Monopoly®, Tempest 3000TM

H.P.I. (Hot Product Peripherals):

Note: Originallyy it seem that HPI collaborate in the production or development
with NYKO Industries

*NUON Standard Memory Card           HPI-MEM (unreleased)
This was supposed to be THE memory card for saving the progress of NUON games
(expected Q1 2002).Capacity range from 2 MB to 4 MB .

*Pro-Elite analog/digital controler  HPI-6000 (unreleased)
This controller was designed with a slot for a "visual memory card a la"
Dreamcast VMU (expected Q1 2002).Come with a digital D-Pad and analog ministick.

*Warrior Digital Gamepad             HPI-2000
This is the basic NUON gamepad. Only have a digital D-Pad. Also come standard
with the Samsung DVD-N2000 Extiva. HPI model are black with burgundy buttons,
Samsung model black with blue-grey button and Samsung logo in place of HPI one.

Level/Mission select cheat!: Use this code to select ANY mission you wish within
Freefall.

After you have activated the cheat menu,(stay on the title screen) press:
B 4 times, L 4 times,
then R 4 times. Goto 'Select/Start mission' and there now will be a option for
level select!
    Freefall designer Tony Takoushi has provided several tips for the game, I
quote him from his posts on the NUON Forum:

    General Freefall Strategy from Tony T.

    "Mission 3 battlecruiser is my fave too :) I'm glad you sweated the cruiser
as I designed it so that people playing for the first few times would run VERY
 close to the wire in terms of defeating the cruiser (the last 200 to 400 feet)"

    "Getting Arielle can be tricky but general pointers: If she goes into a dive
then dive straight down after her and keep diving until you hit her. If she is
too far away try moving AWAY from her (straight back..)"

    "Also if she has dived you can airbrake to drop slower and position yourself
ABOVE her as she comes back up so she hits you!"

    "On skyfall 3 you can just move in a pyramid to avoid most enemies
(OK boring, but guarantees you safe passage)."

    "On Gateway 3 float over the thermal and count to 10 saying 1001, 1002 in
your head etc..) then for the other gates count to 6 using 1001 etc.."

    "You must anticipate the time you will need to drop down to the gate from
the thermal, if you come off it at 10 you will fail, try coming off around half
to three quarters of the count needed.."

    "I put a twist into each main mission objective so that just as you think
you have done it something crops up.. Thus the brainwash on the girl and the
firewall chasing you in Cybercity (it does not matter which way up you are
diving(head first or feet first)as both positions drop at the same speed (160
with auto airbrake) so you can look up the tunnel to see the firewall get
ever closer..."

    "Gateway 4 is my favourite, it is so intense..if the electric balls at the
top are chewing ya butt try going horizontal and airbraking all the time while
 shooting them continuously.."

  "Don't try to avoid them, psyche them out with airbrakes and let'em have it!!"

    Endzone 1 tips

    "The Endzones are very different they are slow and strategic as you have
realised."

    "To beat the first endzone you need to use the yellow thermal towards the
the top right corner of the zone."

    "Go on this BUT be careful you do not go into the next row where the homing
mine is protecting the rear of the zone (including the landing pad itself)."

    "When you are at your maximum height (around 42 feet) THEN hold down the
airbrakes to lift you even higher, wait until the airbrakes are half way thru
the yellow section on the gauge(this extra airbrake helps you float across
the whole width of the endzone) and then float across the endzone to the other
(opposite)wall (you MUST go straight across otherwise the thermals will blow
you back to the front of the Endzone(where you came in). You MUST keep holding
the airbrake as you dirft across to the other wall or you will fall short and
get blown back. Don't worry about them overheating as you will reach the far
wall by then."

    "When you get there drop back a couple of rows and use the thermal there to
 rise up and then airbrake up again and float down to get the shield pick-up."

    "With this go back to the yellow thermal in the top right corner and
activate it (by pressing buttons A and B together)and build up and hold the
airbrakes BEFORE diving for the landing pad as the homing mine will hit you
almost instantly as you cross into its rear protection area."

    Endzone 3 tips

"I realised I forgot to mention that you can bypass the impossible looking first
 row of thermals by going to the far right hand side (basically touch the wall)
 and push forward through the gap between the thermal edge and the wall.."

the thrid red light then press and hold the acceleration button.

Partial Invincibilty cheat code - CHUPACABRA. This makes you invincible to all
enemies except the lightning bolts of Pulsars and Frank Zappers.

GOATIEST - Not sure
FLIPPER - Flip the between level bonus grahpics upside down
RIMSTALKER-BOMBE - Haven't had a chance to try yet

I'll post more as soon as I find them!

(Very special thanks to Wasted for the T3k passwords!)
    Now, if you know Tempest you also should know that it is hardly a game that
accepts strategy.
There are a few tips which could benefit you, if you are new to Tempest.

First off, your best chance of staying alive is to keep as many enemies away
from the web as possible.In other words, kill everything. On later levels,
obtaining as much fuel as you can for your hover ability is essential. Be
careful with Homing Missles and Frank Zappers, as if you are not careful, you
may shoot the Frank Zapper with a missle and then cross over the line as it
fires and then you're fragged.

4.3.1 Region hack (movies)

	Head here: http://www.vcdhelp.com/

or here is the trick with Samsung DVD-N501 and N2000 eXTIVA by Marcelo Donoso:

Use an Aiwa Hifi Remote Control...
1. Turn on the N-501 (without any DVD on the player)
2. Wait until in the TV appears "No Disc"
3. Open the tray and put a DVD from other region (not zone 1), don't close the
   tray!!!.
4. On the remote control of the Aiwa press the "Clock" button, in some remote
   control you must do a button combination like "Shift+9" (Is the combination
   to see the clock, do the combination fast), and in other model of Aiwa remote
   control doesn't appear the clock button, you must try with the "random"
   button.
5. If you do it right, in the corner of TV where appears "No Disc" will be say
   "Region Free", in the Player Screen say "ADJUST" and the tray must close,
   and you are ready to enjoy the movie on your player.
6. your DVD is now REGION FREE until you turn it off, while you don't turn it
   off, you can change movies whatever times you want.if you turn it off, every
   time you turn it on, you must do all the steps again to be able to see other
   region movies.

I GUARANTEE THIS BECAUSE I'M LIVE IN CHILE AND GOT MOVIES ZONE 1,4 AND 3 AND IT
PLAYS ON MY NUON DVD PLAYER.

ALSO WORKS WITH EXTIVA N2000 AND THE EUROPEAN VERSION OF THE N709...
(I PROVED TOO)

I live in Chile (zone 4) and the DVD N-501 Nuon is zone 1,and i own a N-501 zone
1 that i bought in the USA.My brother bought an Aiwa NSX200, i use the remote
control of the Aiwa(model RC-AAS11),I turned on the player and press the "Clock"
(in the nsx200 remote is Shift+9, do it fast, almost at the same time)(i tried
 with another Aiwa HiFi remote and it work too) button on the "Aiwa Remote
Control", in the front panel say "ADJUST" and the drawer pops open, and on the
tv appears "Region Free" in the left-up corner, Just for a little moment, then
i put a DVD zone 4 that i rent (Aliens) and it work, i tried with a DVD Zone 3,
 and also works
***AWESOME!!!.
The only problem that you need to do this every time that you turn off and on
the DVD player . It's a little annoying, but the reward is huge...
Also works with N709 (only that N709 is PAL) and Extiva N2000, i tried with
those too, and it works!!!

NOW GET AN AIWA HIFI REMOTE CONTROL, AND ENJOY!!!
A FRIEND FROM CHILE (SOUTH AMERICA)...
