Stop 'N' Swop II?
 
If you break open the B-K Game Paks that had the Ice Key and 2 other SnS eggs in the original Banjo-Tooie, these have shinier eggs in them now, but they don't have a ? on them. When one of these eggs are collected it says Stop 'N' Swop II.

Would this have something to do with B-K or NaB? Maybe Banjo-Threeie?

:confused:

I'm almost sure that it's related to a new banjo game.
The final cutscene of Nuts & Bolts also promises a sequel to the franchise.

EDIT: I was wrong. I really thought that it would be related to a new banjo game...:(

Actually, I'm quite positive it's just a tongue in cheek joke by Rare. Hence why the first time the "Stop 'N' Swop II" logo appears the tag line reads, "Oh no, not again..."

KingBroly 04-30-2009 06:48 AM

Yeah, I'm sure it's a joke, but I'm wondering where all the Game Paks are. I've found 2 so far (I have 3 messages)

These are the positions:
- In Jinjo Village, from the Spiral Mountain tunnel, head right to a ledge and move along it(you'll need Grib Grab, it's in Mayahem Temple) to a cave and enter. There's the first game pak.
- In Spiral Mountain, go to a flypad(there is one on top of Spiral Mountain and one right outside Grunty's Lair) and fly of to the cliff by the top of the smaller waterfall. Enter the cave and swim away to the waterfall that's in there. To the left of the waterfall is a ledge, grab onto it(again, you'll need Grib Grab) and enter the cave behind the waterfall. There's the second game pak.
- In Spiral Mountain, use Grenade Eggs(you'll find these outside Witchy World) and blow up the cage wall blocking the cave over the big stubs. Use a flypad(on top of Spiral Mountain or outside Grunty's Lair) and fly into the cave. There's the last game pak.

I found out that it's connected to NaB. If you collect those eggs you'll get some new blueprints in NaB. The blueprints are the vehicles that won in the vehicle contest.

Here's a list of all the SNS II items:

SNS II:
- Oh no, Not Again... - Hatch all the Stop n Swop egss from Banjo-Kazooie
- Lucky Loser - Find the Bronze Egg, located above the stumps in Spiral Mountain
- Better than a Slap - Find the Silver Egg, located inside Spiral Mountain's waterfall
- And the winner is... - Find the Gold Egg, located in an ice cave in Jinjo Village
- Now Who's Boss? - Defeat all 13 bosses under 15 minutes.
- Calmer Chameleon - Transform in each transformation at least once.
- Heroic Failure - Die a lot during Boss Replays.

And they all give you a whole bunch of great blueprints in Nuts and Bolts.
(Nice find)

Unfortunately you need the L.OG.'s Lost Challenges DLC to get the blueprints..

I only collected the eggs and hatched all SnS eggs.. the Now Who's Boss one is pretty hard.

Don't beat yourself up over it. The SNS blueprints are... shall we say... not very impressive and largely impractical in challenges.

Pixo 05-03-2009 04:03 AM

Well that's good to hear, but I still would like to use them in Test-O-Track. I heard there were walking robots and some other wierd things.

Stop 'N' Swop
 
I'd have to say that after 10 years of Stop 'N' Swop mystery, I am a bit dissapointed. But then again, what was I expecting? (Definetely not blueprints for starters :))

Is anyone else slightly dissapointed about the outcome of Stop 'N' Swop? And what were you expecting?

BuddhaMD 05-03-2009 03:50 PM

what exactly are the new blueprints?

i checked after hatching all the eggs & there were 6 new ones in the database but no more have been added since i found the bronze, silver & gold eggs in the game-paks...

deano ward 05-04-2009 02:09 AM

I'm having trouble with the one you have to fly to the top of the watefall. How do remove the gate?

Pixo 05-04-2009 03:50 AM

You have to grab the ledge in there and climb into the cave behind the (smaller) waterfall.

I don't think that's how it goes.

According to Rare Witch Project, using the Stop n Swop items from Banjo-Kazooie unlocks the new blueprints in Nuts & Bolts, while Stop n Swop II is going to be used for some upcoming game.

For the record, I only have 5 SnSII items, yet have all 7 of the blueprints.

This may be a stupid question, but I assume for "Now Who's Boss" is done in the Boss Replays?

Also, how do I even access the Boss Replays? I've finished the game and collected everything, but I can't figure it out...

And while I'm asking stupid questions, what do I have to do to get the "Jiggy Secrets" from the signposts in JiggyWiggy's temple?

Pixo 05-16-2009 02:16 PM

Yea, you would probably have to do them in Boss Replays. If not you would have to restart the whole story just to get less than 15 minutes on the last boss.

You have to enter NESTKING in the code chamber in mayahem temple.

In the main menu, move over to the honeycomb VCR on the far right. You can replay bosses, mini-games, and cutscenes here.

Karachi King 05-17-2009 03:10 AM

Thanks, I didn't even realise you could move past the portraits there.

15 minutes is pretty rough though. The only one I think took me a considerable amount longer than it should was Lord Woo Fak Fak, and my time was still around 22 minutes. :(
No idea where I'm going to trim 7+ minutes from...

Outlaw54 05-18-2009 05:19 AM

ya, I am having some issues with Lord Woo as well. right now he is at 2:13. i have under a minute for everybody except Patch, Woo, Weldar, Terry, and HAG 1. I have to kill 1:17 off for it to be 15 on the dot. HAG 1 I have at 4:46 which sucks...but I can't imagine killing Grunty any quicker than that

Karachi King 05-18-2009 05:44 AM

Haha, my Hag1 time was over 6 minutes, and I thought that was pretty good. :eek:

I think my time for Patch is pretty crummy as well. I just really suck at trying to aim while flying/swimming.

Pixo 05-19-2009 03:17 AM

I have under 2 mins for everyone except HAG 1 and Lord Woo. Those are the 2 hardest bosses in the game for me, but HAG 1 is still pretty fun.

Anthrizacks 06-25-2009 01:28 AM

I have a quick question about the stop n swop...I got all the Stop n Swops for BK1 (just started BT) but I don't have Nuts & Bolts (just ordered it today). Am I still going to get the SNS bonuses for N&B?

WnxLogan 06-25-2009 01:46 AM

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you will. It should still be able to read the save file regardless of the order you play them in.

TheOnlyDragon 11-20-2009 04:22 PM

i no this will probably sound stupid but i dont remember any s'n's in bk and i was wondering if any1 could help cz i just got bt and trying to understand the whole s'n's
Edit: i now understand i new all the answers but didnt realise i did

Walecs360 03-02-2011 05:45 PM

Stop N Swop II items don't do anything in Nuts & Bolts. I though it was the introduction to a new game, but it's only to convince gamers to buy Banjo-Tooie on XBLA.

You're sure that they're not actually going to create a new game in the near future, if they haven't already started something hush hush?

I figure it could be both a joke, and a precursor to a new installment in the BK series. Or maybe just a joke, who knows. I doubt that they'd treat it as an actual game feature though, they wouldn't have to go that far to get the point across that it's simply tongue in cheek humor.. But they did. They must be entirely devoted to their brand of humor. lol

ZzDrkNitemarezZ 02-24-2013 12:35 AM

If your asking how to get the Ice Key, then you will need to have Banjo Kazooie XBLA first. The game immediately reacts and opens all the areas containing SnS items to collect, then just switch to Banjo Tooie and you will have the SnS 1 items ready for use. SnS two is just mini-achievements and dont do much to be honest, I believe they are used in Nuts and Bolts from rumours.
