    i am playing the thousand-year door on nintewndo`s gamecube. to beat hooktail in the first castle you need to find the cricket as the cricket is the only thing that hooktail is afraid of. i have been through the castle several times to no avail. i did try using the platform, that turns you into a paper airplane to see if i could get underneath the castle. then you first enter hooktail1s castle you use a trampoline to jump up to a walkway. when you go through the door it takes you out to a balcony with a platform for turning Mario into a paper airplane when you stand on it and press the y button. there is a break in the bridge below and i have tried to guide the plane below that break in the bridge to get under the castle, but it is very hard to do and with my luck, that`s where the cricket is hidden. thank you for your help in adavnce, Wes Chambers.

    hey Cactusbin, i think i need your help again my friend. i made it to twight woods and beat the ghost that was turning the villager`s into pigs. in the process Mario was turned into a shadow and the ghost took Mario`s form. everytime i pass through the first area after you leave the village heading towards the castle the Ghost in Mario`s form asks me to name him. i cannot remember the ghosts name rthat is now using Mario`s form and every time i try to name him and it is wrong we have to battle, but neither Mario in shadow form and the ghost in Mario`s form can inflict any damage on each other and my only option is to run away. what i mean by taking Mario`s form is that now the Ghost looks like Mario, so when the ghost appears it is Mario. Mario is all grey now with hothing more than the profile of Mario with his body colored competely grey. do you know how i can resolve this part of the game? to refresh your memory, i am playing Paper Mario and The Thousand Year Door on gamecube. i have been running back and forth from the castle to Twilight Woods looking for something to help me with it, but i am at a loss. Thank you for your time, with love from Wes!! hugs!!!

You have to wear the Attack FX R Badge, as it makes you sound like a cricket or something like that. But you have to wear that badge.

Hi How do I save progress/lives on the new super mario game on the DS lite please? My friends kids can all save on theirs? Thanks

The only way to save is to beat a castle. In any given world you have the halfway point which is a small castle and an end point which is a big castle at the end. Once you beat either castle a question appears at the bottom asking if you want to save. Just pick yes and you must play from there to the next save point in the next world. TIP: also the big coins you get in every level can be used to open up prize rooms and whatnot, every time you open a prize room or different path the game will prompt you to save there as well. Very helpful near the end when the levels become excruciatingly unforgiving.
