- Open the hatch, enter the rocket port, grab the handle and ride down the line.
- Land in the chair which turns around.
- Ride down the ramp into the waiting car.
- Drive down the technopipe, shoot out past the sun, and land on the ramp emerging from the earth.
- Continue driving along road while listening to instructions from your dead father.
- Utter the magic command word "Transer-go!"
- Continue driving while Transer's engine bits warm up and jets fire.
- Continue driving while the gigantic carrier vehicle to emerge from the stone dragon head (do not worry, it won't fall into the waves because a roadway will emerge from the sea to facilitate its travel).
- When it lands on the road ahead of you (note: do not operate during periods of heavy traffic) drive the car into alignment with its opening back port. (Sexual innuendo is incompatible with this phase of operation.)
- Listen to the voice of your dead father tell you the second command word.
- Shout "Light speed!"
- This will cause the car to jump off the road into the back of the carrier rig, then connect the car to the interface unit.
- The command chair will launch out into the transit pod, through opening doors, then up into the technodome and control station.
- Various tubes will attach suction cups to your shoulders and head and restraint cuffs attach to your arm. (Getting turned on by this may cause equipment to exceed operational parameters, voiding the warranty.)
- The transport now launches off the launch ramp into the sky.
- Listen while your dead father delivers the final command phrase.
- Shout "Dynamo Battle Turn Now!" Posing here is not required, but you'll probably do it anyway.
