I like the game, but the reason why Type 4 gets massive praise is because people probably "beat" the Grand Prix once, the equivalent of playing a coin-op game once, which is enough play time to gush over the insanely good late 90s Namco production like graphics, music, and SOUL. The truth is you practically require a spreadsheet to play Type 4 for real. If you thought flight and space sims were autistic, this PS1 arcade racer says hello.

There are a combination of 321 cars in the game (20 cars for each 4 manufacturers then paint job rehash for each of the 4 teams, plus a Pac Man bonus car). In order to unlock them, you need to use every unique combination of racing team (game difficulty), car manufacturer (handling model), and finish in very specific positions THROUGHOUT the grand prix.

For example, picking team Pac Racing Club and manufacturer Assoluto, finishing in these EXACT positions 3rd > 3rd > 2nd > 1st > 1st > 1st > 1st > 1st will specific unlock car 1, 2, 7, and 14.

People generally like to criticise this version for the controls. But, with a little tweaking, this version of Daytona USA is one of my favourite ports of the game.


480p @60fps via VGA. Virtually no pop-in. Actually, a good conversion of the arcade game. I can see why some people would not be a fan of the aesthetics of the DC version, and I prefer the voice audio samples and music of the original. DC game also supported 4 player races online. Which was fun as shit, when they worked. Though the lag through a 56k modem could be pretty bad.

TNFS is only worth playing really if you want 1) to experience the origins of the series or 2) actually played it back in the day and want a mostly srs bsns but not autismo racing game. It has aged the worst of all of the early titles but that is entirely down to it being on more limited hardware (strictly speaking all versions are ports of the 3DO). The best IMO of the old school games is III but most would pick high stakes/road challenge but i've got a chip on my shoulder of road challenge.

Its the PC version. Every version of need for speed 1 al the way to porsche has a different HUD depending on platform - typically the PS1 has the best HUD setup. This is what the PS1 version looks like after some emulation enhancements.

But the entire game to me is slowing down for jumps because catching air kills my chassis and suspensions. Hitting signs dings your bill.

those tracks return in high stakes; i personally prefer the newer tracks because of their more realistic design and appearance. obviously it's still not *really* realistic, but i think the colors used remind me a bit of film photography and evoke the same vibe as photos you'd see in late-90s road and tra- hey, wait a minute

No, no it is not. NFS 1 through to porsche are about driving (not racing, a subtle distinction) the bedroom poster. All those supercars you wanted in exotic locales but will never afford - that is what the games are styled after. This is why the games also offer a host of technical information and history - it is really aimed at the boy who has the poster and memorised all the specs.

NFSIII is my favourite NFS game of all time as it nails everything from the sound, the style and the gameplay.

This thread reminds me that I have played a significant percentage of the PS1's racing game library in some form or another back in the day - the good and the shit. I got into PC gaming way, way later than the 90's but these days the magic of dgvoodoo and dosbox lets me play the old titles I missed out on.

Speaking of PS1 racing - does anyone know if Circuit Breakers ever actually got that expansion? I have scoured the internet and supposedly it exist on one of the demo discs but i've never been able to source it or find confirmation.

>To be honest the only versions of TNFS worth playing are the 3DO version for the radical X Man and the PC version (special edition) because it is the best.

The #DO original plays more like a race simulator than the other versions that came later. I honestly never really spent much time with the PS1 port. I would imagine that it is pretty similar to the Saturn game. The Saturn version is sped-up. It's like EA tweaked it to play more like an arcade racer. The Saturn game runs at a fairly steady 30fps. It's a good port.

>> No.6761448

Thing is all the other versions other than the 3DO are just the same game - the platform differences are solely down to what each platform is capable of and the PC version is flatout the best. The saturn and PS1 versions are not inherently sped up, the 3DO just runs the game at 20fps and under most of the time. The only reason to play the 3DO is to see where it all started but beyond that it is just a footnote. NFS earned its reputation primarily within the PC space for a reason.


>> No.6761464

>The saturn and PS1 versions are not inherently sped up

That's not true at all. The cars in the Saturn version (and presumably PS1) all reach higher top speeds. It's not just a faster frame rate. And it does affect the way the cars handle in those versions, there's more under-steer in the Saturn/PS1 games overall. The acceleration of the vehicles in general are faster too. The breaking feels different. I honestly prefer the 3DO version because it does play more like a real driving sim in comparison to the other versions.

that car unlock thing is indeed quite retarded but I don't see why that really makes the game worse in any meaningful way
it really is just an extra, i played the game on all difficulties and all the other modes until i was fed up with it, and that was enough for me to have a great time

I'm willing to exclude reskins out of the argument, but if you still have to go through that shit show to unlock every unique car then that is inexcusable. If even 1/3 or 1/4 of the entire roster is behind that bullshit, that's practically content held hostage.

I'm going to take issue with these claims specifically. RR1 was the best you were gonna get as a arcade port at the time for a 3D game. RRR is a better game on just about every front (I dislike the OST compared to the original).

RR7 is just a minor evolution of 6 sure but it is also the only RR on PS3 and has many enhancements befitting the playstation.

>> No.6761539

They could’ve added an extra track for 1 or something, and Rev something besides a little more extra than 1 to justify the price. I do love 7 personally but it feels too similar to 6

>> No.6761541

RR1 and Revolution aren't "lazy", they basically ported the arcade game with new physics to work better with a digital pad. Early 94-96 sequels were refinement driven to iron out the fugly graphics so that's why Revolution and even Wipeout XL still uses the old school arcadey non-progression models. In 97 and after you started to see more "career" modes and started cranking out actual content. Type 4 isn't lazy per se, but nearing '00 they really went mad in padding things out to milk every hour of playtime out of you. Again with Wipeout, in Wipeout 3 your "progression" is making you finish gold on every track using every ship on every speed class. Ridge Racer V is more of a tech demo as with RR1.

I am a bit disappointing that the bonus disc was never included with the PS1 mini. But then again, the emulation was trash in that machine. Ridge Racer Type 4 didn't even run at a proper framerate. It was awesome when publishers use to throw in free content like this.

At that point in time, Nintendo was trying to get some PS1 exclusives on the N64. They also funded the port of Resident Evil 2. Ridge Racer 64 was built from scratch by Nintendo Software Technology group in Redmond, Washington (Nintendo's own headquarters), and was meant to be a compilation of everything Ridge Racer. It has the courses from RR and RRR, and NST made one new course that was set in a desert. Ridge Racer 64 also has its own collision and drift system, but you can chose the RRR or Rage Racer styled gameplaty as well. The is pretty good in the N64 game. I think the car roster came from Ridge Racer Type 4, as well as the aesthetic.

Fuick pcmem and fuck the dos version. Use the windows version (might need fan patch to get it installed). Then go download dgvoodoo2 and set that up - the game literally Just Werks™ that way.

If in doubt try this rom as its what I got to work.

Well any car can do it but the standard cars (i.e not the ones you get from winning galaxia) are generally better than the bonus ones but speed is fairly crucial over handling for the later races are you are expected to race nearly flawlessly. Revolution is the harder game imo due to the expert track being insanely technical.

>Where did you find that ROM?
Fuck knows as I went through a lot of internet trawling to get the game working. I even named the file "keep as it fucking works".

III and high stakes are much, much easier to get running. II falls into that weird void of very early Direct3D that just do not function anymore due to things 16bit reliance or general doing funky things modern windows does not handle. I think RG mechanics has a torrent of all the early NFS games floating about as well.

In theory the a.i racers are never problem as outside of the chicane bit on the TT track they never follow the racing line so you nearly always have room to pass.

>> No.6767009

i'm no expert but let go of gas and then press gas or brake to initiate drift. in drift state, i think you need to turn a bit in any side (it doesn't matter) so then when you want to end the drift you need to straighten up again. pressing gas if it wasn't pressed might end the drift too i think. in drift state your rotation doesn't effect the position of the car, which gravitate to the center of the track pretty quickly, but i think it might affect speed loss, more angle - more loss. so the only reason to do any significant angle is to show off.

>> No.6767176
File: 2.37 MB, 600x338, Ridge racer.webm [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google]

Let go of power, turn, hit power again. The real trick of RR's drifting is you aren't going to be applying countersteer during the drift. Once you start the drift the car will turn as if it is on rails at that angle so counter steer is only applied at the end to end up going straight again.

Pay close attention to this webm - you can see the slight drop in revs as the drift is initiated and it is full throttle all the time otherwise.

>> No.6767217

just point the car to the direction the road goes while drifing i guess

>> No.6767230

Its all about using only a few inputs. A tap or two to initiate the drift and you only need about that to straighten out. Where I think you are going wrong is the car is gripping when the viewpoint is still at an angle so you are applying either too much counter steer to straighten up or not enough. You might want to counter steer to straighten a little sooner than you currently are. Again there is no secret just practice. I suggest sticking with the F/A racing car as it really is the most balanced.

RR's drifting is very binary - the car is either sticking to the track like glue or is drifting, there is no inbetween state like you see in basically every other (non arcade) game. Burnout for example is the polar opposite - a drift can be manipulated easily and you can gradually change from drift to grip but as said ridge racer doesn't work like that.

You're going to have to explain those ones to me.

Dirt felt like it continued to get more gimmicky and casual over time until their return to form with Dirt Rally, though I admittedly didn't play much of the series.

I've been playing Rush 2 and Top Gear Overdrive on N64. Neither feel fun to play longer than a few minutes, as much as I wanted them to be, I'm not sure how anyone can play them for long, unless I'm really missing something, which I could be.

Dirt 3 is the only one of the dirt games I’ve played and if you set the options to be more arcade like, it feels like a spiritual successor to sega rally, i put on damage though to make it a bit more fun. I hear dirt rally is very very sim like

Rush 2 is just a good solid arcade style racer that fixes most of the issues from 1. Top gear overdrive has a nice career style mode and almost felt like N64’s answer to ridge racer until 64 came out

I haven’t played much sega gt but i’m guessing they’re like forza or gt, which I should add forza 1 is great and I liked forza horizon 4

Rock and roll racing is top down and has a metal ost, it’s a ton of fun. PGR is my favorite racing series ever because it’s like ridge racer except it has real cars and the drifting and style driving actually matter, especially in the first game. MSR is actually PGR 0.

It feels like burnout’s redneck cousin. Is destruction derby any good?

>> No.6776387

I don't like FlatOut in general. The boost system is based around plowing into things along the side of the road (which only count if they haven't been hit yet, meaning cars in front get fresher boosting opportunities) and battling rival cars, which is very odd, and the controls for the game are so loose and difficult to rein in that it runs counter to the boosting system (you either trip over debris or can barely hold onto your car when you go up against the other cars and it all descends into frustrating, nonsensical chaos).

>> No.6776453

Those are fair complaints. It's been a hot few years since I've sat down and played 2 in a while, and even when I did I only ever played the minigames and destruction derby so I never really noticed it as a young dude.

because gameplay-wise it's such a downgrade compared to the original game
first, there's no close racing, especially against real people - you ram your opponents, they fly off the road, you speed away
second, every rwd car either grips or spins, you can't really slide
it's rather playable, you should try it since there aren't that many games to choose from anyway

It’s a refinement of the original games. And despite being arcadey, every car has its own identity and driving style that is subtle but definitely noticeable.

Despondent anon here, HALE yeah. Fucking love World and Exotica. Most people tend to favor USA because it was the most well known/widely exposed, on top of being the first in the series, but I personally find World and Exotica more appealing overall and expand and improve on the formula, especially when it comes to locales/track variety, and car roster variety. I have USA and Exotica on N64 and looking to get World. I hear World is the best 64 port of the trilogy. USA does indeed just feel like a 3D OutRun, which isn't bad in of itself, but there's a lot of repetition there and a relatively lacking sense of speed compared to World and Exotica, though I don't think the arcade is bad by any means. Though the 64 version is pretty sad by comparison. I hear MAME can now emulate USA and World, but not Exotica yet, which is the one I've been waiting on the most.
