First and foremost, this took about 40 hours total to make. It started as a simple Code Tool (CT) to tell you what Unique Jumps (UJs) you had left, and instead became a deluxe CT to act as an informational tool all around for all things UJ. It was made then another feature added, then another, etc and across multiple coding sessions. The code was patched, tied together, modified, etc... SOMETHING's bound to be wrong with it. Not to mention that it's about 1700 lines long (my biggest scratch made mod yet) with only 12 wait commands. It's a very high priority mod, so it may crash slower machines. If you need to report ANYTHING, this is the place to do it. Be as thorough in your description as possible and thank you for your patience and understanding. As with any mod with this many features, the instructions may appear a bit daunting. Please take care to read them thoroughly. I've spent a lot of time trying my best to make sure all the bases are covered, so questions asked that these instructions answer will be ignored.

Installation - Backup your /data/main.scm and replace it with Uniquecall's. Load your game.
Basic Purpose - Identifying UJs you have left. The UJs are numbered according to standard game guides as has been accepted since very early on. The numbers are only for reference's sake. When you load, you will be warped to the first one you have yet to complete, already facing the direction to travel. You will notice that the mode indicator says LEFT indicating that it is displaying only jumps you have left to do. A small blip will appear on your radar indicating where you warped to, which is where you need to launch from. The big blip on the radar as well as the gigantic green corona in the sky indicates where you're aiming for to complete the UJ. At any time you are on foot, you may press Aim and Sprint together to be warped to the next unfinished UJ in your game assuming there are more to scroll through. Once it has exhausted the list, it will take you back to the first and a triple chime will sound to remind you that you've gone through all the ones you have yet to do.
Coronas in GTA - If the center of the corona is not on screen, none of the corona will be. So be sure to look up and down if you can't see it. Also, despite the fact that it is representing a sphere, it will only appear as a circle perpendicular to you for maximum visibility. These are the nature of coronas and are out of my control.
Switching Modes - Uniquecall has 4 modes, but only 2 are selectable by the user: LEFT and JUMP. LEFT indicates jumps you have left to do while JUMP will scroll through all jumps whether you've already done them or not. This is to allow you to use Uniquecall to study various jumps, even if you've already done them. To switch modes, hold Crouch. As soon as you do, the airborn corona will change from green to yellow to indicate that continue holding it will switch modes. This is just in case you should bump Crouch unintentionally. After holding it for a second, a chime will sound and the corona will turn red. Once you release Crouch, the corona will turn to green once more and the mode will be toggled between LEFT and JUMP. If you have already completed all jumps, you will be locked out of LEFT mode as there simply are no more jumps to do. Also, switching from JUMP to LEFT will warp you to the next one you have left to do to avoid confusion from it saying LEFT on screen, but lighting up a jump you've already done. If you should load a game where all jumps are done already or complete all jumps while Uniquecall is loaded, you will be forced into JUMP mode and not have the option to leave that mode since there are no remaining jumps.
Other Modes - Uniquecall features two other modes: TARGET and RETRY. At any time you begina UJ--be it one you've completed or not--THAT UJ will be lit up on the radar and in the sky. If it's a jump you have not yet done, you will enter TARGET mode and a sparkling purple corona will appear where your target is. Otherwise, you will enter RETRY mode and a sparkling orange corona will appear. In either mode, the camera will stay behind you instead of being locked into a cinematic position like a normal UJ. This is to help you hone your approach in case you do miss the jump, so that you can see where you missed it and by how much. If however you satisfy the jump, the camera will then lock into place while the corona switches from purple or orange to white indicating that you satisfied the jump. If you are in RETRY mode, the words UNIQUE STUNT BONUS will appear indicating that you hit it, just in case you barely made it and therefore didn't get to see the camera lock and/or the corona turn white. When you are finished with trying a UJ, Uniquecall will go back to lighting up the jump it was before and in the mode you were in before. This is unless the jump that was lit up was the one you did, you needed it, and you got it. In which case, it will shift you into JUMP mode since you no longer need that jump. You will have to exit your vehicle and press Sprint and Aim to go to the next one if you'd like.
Exiting Uniquecall - Once you've done researching what you need, you may simply swap your main.scm back to the original and reload your game. If you've actually made UJ progress by completing some and would like to save you will first need to exit Uniquecall. Since Uniquecall is a CT, it's mission based and therefore other mission and/or mission-like threads (such as saving) will not be functional until you first exit Uniquecall. This is done also by holding Crouch. The reason the corona switches from yellow to red when you are switching modes is to indicate that continuing to hold Crouch will exit Uniquecall. To do this, you must hold Crouch for 5 seconds total (4 seconds after the red corona appears). This is to prevent accidentally exiting. Once you have held Crouch for 5 seconds, all of Uniquecall's visual aids will disappear and the words SAVE GAME will appear to remind you to save your progress. Once you've saved, you will need to swap your original main.scm back and load Uniquecall's save to continue playing Vice City.
