Well, first of all, make sure that you've turned off Tour Invulnerability, Unlimited weapons and turned on Tour Craft Colisions. Secondly, kill everything. The more bonus points you have the better. So completing secondary mission objectives, which usually include killing everything in sight are the only way to earns medals. Before my computer crashed I was playing through the game in Medium and had only gone about halfway and had already earned most of the medals. Just kill stuff. About the extra sensory abilities, I doubt it, because I don't have them. And about France making the second round... don't ask me. I picked Proud Citizen to win the Belmont.
