I'm trying to figure out Another Stage, but the guide from AngelFire is gone and I have no clue what any of the options mean. I wish there was a translation patch or a guide on GameFAQs because I seriously can't even beat Iketani. Anyone know how?

Were you expecting something else?

Here are screencaps of some of the options and notes on what they do.
(NOTE: Not all of these techniques are available at the start of the game)

user posted image
Top: Other techniques
Bottom: Heel-toe braking

Top: Earlier braking (not sure about this one, but it does seem to be the slowest of the three)
Middle: Accel-off
Bottom: Normal braking

user posted image
Top: Braking drift
Middle: Other techniques
Bottom: Zero-countersteer drift

user posted image
Top: Normal braking (medium entry speed)
Middle: Early braking (low entry speed)
Bottom: Sudden braking (fastest entry speed of the three)

NOTE: The game will make you brake differently for fast and slow corners, so sudden braking will work for both tight hairpins and fast sweepers.

Top: Other techniques
Middle: E-brake drift
Bottom: Braking drift

The E-brake drift only shows up on hairpins. You can use it without problems even when entering a turn from the inside at high speeds since you slow down a lot during the drift, making it great for hairpin overtakes but nothing more than that. This is the first drift technique acquired in the game.

Top: Out-in-out
Middle: Late-apex line
Bottom: Inside cornering (inside-lane exit - don't use if you didn't slow down enough for the turn)

user posted image
Top: Line cross (you make a lane-change and try to overtake)
Middle: Feint motion (think scandinavian flick - flicks your car to the outside lane before pointing it towards the upcoming turn)
Bottom: Other techniques

user posted image
Top: Normal braking
Middle: Early braking
Bottom: Late braking (can be used to overtake on corner entry if the opponent's car isn't in your way, but remember that you'll be heading into the turn with a lot of speed and will likely not be taking it from the outside if you pull off the overtake)

user posted image
Top: "Tsukawa nai" (or however you space it - same thing as "other techniques")
Middle: Outside-entry gutter run
Bottom: Inside-entry gutter run

If you can't read any Japanese characters, you'll have to rely on memory like I first did back when I couldn't read hiragana and katakana. Anyway, these aren't all the options, but I think they'll do for now. Hope this helps. Let me know if you didn't understand something, want a technique explained or need more help with the game.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that the out-in-out line works best with normal braking.

If I remember correctly, Initial D: Another Stage is a very old game for the Game Boy Advance. I believe that it came out way back in 2002, I don't know too much about the background and gameplay though. pinch2.gif

Wow, this is so cool. I'm a sucker for games like this that are less action, more thought. I wonder if it can even be found anywhere these days?

And they never made a version in english, correct?

That is correct. There is no english version of this game. I got my cartridge from an importer on eBay 5 years ago and I still play it. After a lot of trial and error, you will find out what options work best at certain points in each race.
