  • Mission - Each mission has a specific objective to complete. Objectives are displayed on the menu.

Saving

This game allows you to save your progress via DLDI. On first play, the game will create the save file gtc2_sav.sav on your flash cart. If you find that saving does not work, please try manually patching the game with the appropriate DLDI patch for your flash cart. If it still doesn't work, you're out of luck.
