Gena has a niche in her fast stopping time, making it easier to get close to customers to avoid losing a few seconds waiting for them to get in. BD Joe is worthless, though.

there's a ost mod for the steam version that replaces the shitty songs with every bad religion and offspring theme from the trilogy, It's pretty good, this game is not the same without the nihilistic californian punk music.

Can someone explain the driver choices to me?

Here's what I remember. Tell me if I'm wrong:
Axel: Average stats
BD Joe: Best top speed, worst handling
Gena: Best handling, worst top speed
Gus: Best Acceleration

So why is Gus the best? I would have assumed the prime pick would be BD Joe (get there fastest) or Gena (take more risks to increase tip).

The PS3/360/Steam versions have godawful royalty free music but the PC versions of the trilogy went the clever route of licensing smaller punk bands instead. Don't know why they couldn't keep doing that, it would at least be an attempt to keep the same atmosphere.

Gus has the heaviest car. He can push traffic out of the way easier and recover from mistakes/crashes quicker. The high acceleration also makes him the best driver for using the dash/limiter cut, the most important technique.

Whats the best Crazy Taxi console port there is? Whats the best way to experience it?

Is there any difference between region releases

>> No.4455372

Xbox version

>> No.4455379

Dreamcast, it's the only arcade-perfect port.

>> No.4455431

I would not recommend this for CT 1 & 2. It's missing the other level from both of those games (Original and Around Apple respectively) and also is missing their Crazy Box/Crazy Pyramid mini-games. Plus it looks more washed-out compared to the Dreamcast versions. On a more positive note, you have the crazy hop mechanic for the CT1 level, something that is not possible in any version of CT1.

So basically, just play 1 & 2 on Dreamcast and 3 on Xbox for the new Las Vegas level.

how the fuck do you linux on dreamcast and then make it a working desktop

I tried it on ppsspp but it crashes, i also tried 2 versions of the game (a gdi one and a uk version), both have the same error for me (freezes on the sega copyright screen), I also tried demul, it works but the sound is ass.

>> No.4455461

but PC version exists. You can make it arcade perfect because all you have to do is replace the MP3 to the original versions.

>> No.4455493

Nope, PC is still inferior.

>> No.4455501

What? No. Gina has high acceleration and handling but is light as shit. Gus has a heavy car that takes forever to accelerate and forever to lose enough speed to stop. The acceleration doesn't matter due to the speed boosting techniques, but not losing speed means he stays at boosted speed for a REALLY long time.

>> No.4455532

The PC version has slowdowns no matter how powerful your PC is.
I mean, I have a 1080ti and the game still runs like shit when there are a lot of things onscreen. Fiddling with the video options doesn't make it any better.

>BD Joe is actually the worst character

>> No.4455634

Gus has the worst acceleration, and worst handling... but the highest top speed and he's the heaviest.
as such, you can just crazy dash to ignore the acceleration issue (he's practically unplayable if you can't crazy dash), you can drift to ignore his poor turning ability, and his weight lets you plow through some things if you really, really need to.
stopping still kind of sucks with him though, which is his one real drawback

Steam version's easy to fix, just a quick ADX swap. I've got the CT1+2 OSTs (plus Americana).

how the hell do the mobile controls work in this
like, I gave up after like 10 minutes and just played with a controller
and they went and messed with the letter scoring for some reason

honestly, this
IIRC, the game actually runs better on Intel video than actual graphics cards in some cases.

you don't
the biggest issue is the appalling lack of RAM on the DC, which was an issue even when it was alive as a console (lots of it for 1998... and then considered fuck all by 2000)
