  1. Very slick car! I can just imagine cruising this on the H3, coming from Kaneohe, all thru those tunnels and everything :] +R, thanks for all your hard work and passion bringing us these cars [email protected]! Now to figure out what to replace.... <_<
  2. Thanks for making this ^_^ I d/l'ed it last night and of course, stuck it on my Furai which I also recently d/l'ed. It fits very well for the character of the car, it makes me want to drive it probably 3 times as much as before lol. Very racey, adventurous sound! I've always thought the Furai was cool, and it's not just a concept car anymore, from what I've read recently, Mazda would like to see it take the place of the good ol' 787B and actually do some racing. They even gave it the number 55 if you look closely.
  3. I set it for Elise Cam and IK, seems fine, just my guy's head sticks out the roof a little lol. But, I always drive in first person view, so I don't care. Seems fine so far, I found some good stats for the car online, except for info about the transmission (gear ratios, etc), and suspension data. So, I left it with the Elise 6 speed for now. It does have a little of that "bobbing up and down" thing, it's not rock solid, but hey it is an older car. Just have to watch your control so it doesn't swing out and spin you off into the grass :)
  4. How did I miss this??? Okay, I'm gonna go over there and have a heart attack for a while... and when I get back this is going all UP in my game! Then I'll probly spend hours looking up stats for the car and tweaking it with tdupe lol. Thanks Rev... this is one of the sexiest cars of all time IMO.
  5. Man... after installing that Community patch 1.68b, I had to start all over, and last night I did ALL the time and speed races in one night. I'm still tired lol. But, my favorites would have to be... Group G: Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe. If you aren't lucky enough to find one, the Lambo Miura is pretty good too. Group F: (modded) BMW 135i -or- Audi TT Quattro sport Group E: Lotus Elise or Nissan Skyline Group D: (modded) Nissan S14, Aston Martin DB9 Volante (surprisingly good car. Yes, the convertible) Group C: Lambo Gallardo Spyder, Lotus Exige Group B: Ford GT, Ascari KZ1, Noble M400 Group A: McLaren F1 GTR The DB9 Volante (in my opinion) is the best driving Aston. The Gallardo Spyder is just an evil little car. I never would have tried it, except for that car delivery mission where you have to drive one, and I was like "daaaaamn" The Lotus Exige is one of the hardest working cars in the game. If you have a twisty-turny race, you might try the Exige. The RUF RTurbo is also a very hard working car, but you need a good wheel to drive it right. For Group B, I have always liked the Ascari KZ1, once you learn how to feel the car, it will do just about anything you want, very good for long cruises. The Ford GT is surprisingly good, as they usually make all American cars suck in these games by default. I've done Millionaire's and Tour in the GT. The Noble M400 is good for more twisty races. In Group A, there are a lot of really good cars. The McLaren F1 GTR is the best all around A car in the game. Period. If you don't wanna be just like everyone else in an Enzo, give it a try. I don't even mess with the Saleen S7 (or as I call it "silly-een" S7) because it's just silly and impossible to drive. The K-Eggs are the same, the back end just spontaneously will fly out from under you. I never use the Maserati MC12, so in my game I've replaced it with the Lotus Evora. I hear a lot of people say the Zondas are hard to drive, but I don't have that much trouble with them. They don't have quite enough acceleration for me, but might be a decent choice on some medium to long races. I've replaced the Edonis in my game with the Veyron, but the Edonis really is an excellent car, and I've driven it in Tour before. Overall, out of all of them, I would have to say the Gallardo Spyder is my favorite choice. It's just that good. If it's a race where you can bring it out, you can be almost guaranteed to win. I'm seriously thinking about using TDUPE to make the Spyder a Group B in my game, just so I can run it in more races lol :)
  6. Maybe I'll try to find the stock version, thanks for the tip :) But it would still be freakin' awesome to have the rally version. Didn't Atari / Eden make a rally game several years back? Maybe it had the car in a format that could be converted?
  7. Hehe, seems like those CLK's come in handy for setting up a lot of different cars. I've got the whole Lexus dealer now with just BMW's lol. I never used any of the Lexes, and I don't think there were any races or anything where you even need 'em. I have all 5 of those cars as various BMW's that I found on here. This one is right in the middle. I have it set up as a Group C car, but a really good one. I'm still tweaking on this one and that M3 Street from Starley. I wanna get this one to be a Group C version of the Skyline basically, where, against B's you can still outdrive them, and even give a A a decent fight. It doesn't have the top speed, but if you can outDRIVE 'em, you don't need to out RUN 'em. That kind of car. It's got really good acceleration, set to 77 at stage 0. Just need to pick a good sound for it. I think after tuning it to stage 3 it had a top speed of 185mph... which is probly too uber, but oh well lol. I just use TDUPE and guess a lot, maybe look at another car and transpose the numbers over. Just having some single player fun so why not? I actually left a S7 Saleen behind in a curvy area when testing it. I wonder... can you use that Modtools thing to make it so that it bumps up to Group B at Stage 3? That might be cool. I am so glad people are still modding for this game. :)
  8. Hi all, Just wanted to drop a little request for a truly awesome, historical famous racecar, which I think should certainly be in this game. I'm surprised no one has made it yet. I actually have the Tamiya RC version lol. There are several Celica models around, so really it might just be a question of putting the decals / livery on it. If I had the software and knew how, I would do it, but I don't. Anyway, there are MANY pics of this famous car on the 'net, which was driven by Didier Auriol in the World Rally Cup series of races all over the world. The livery and lights, brush guards, etc. may vary on where they are racing, but I would leave that up to the modder which version they want to make. A 1993 Rallye Monte Carlo, or Safari Rally Trim setup or whatever. Here are some pics... http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j121/ShadowShape/TTECastrolCelicaGT4-1.jpg Add a white brush guard for those lights to mount on, and it would look like my RC version :) http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j121/ShadowShape/TTECastrolCelicaGT4-2.jpg http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j121/ShadowShape/TTECastrolCelicaGT4-3.jpg http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j121/ShadowShape/TTECastrolCelicaGT4-4.jpg hee hee hee http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j121/ShadowShape/TTECastrolCelicaGT4-5.jpg And before I forget, here are the decals..... http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j121/ShadowShape/CastrolDecals.gif I don't know, but maybe those could just be copied and pasted somehow? That would make it faster maybe. I tried to find a good scan of the decal sheet from the model, Tamiya #92200, but the only one I could find had a website name plastered across it, and I know they don't like that here. And it wasn't the best quality scan either. There were a couple of other Tamiya kits as well that featured this car, #58129 and 24125 as well. Also, there is some good info on Wikipedia about Toyota Motorsport GmbH, or TTE, (Toyota Team Europe). Anyways, I just think it would be a really fun car to have in the game, even if it's not a rally racing game, some of those roads are rough enough to qualify lol. Anyways, thanks for your time, and maybe seeing the car will make you smile :)
  9. Okay, that's it.... too awesome... must download... Gonna replace all those Lexuses with Beemers lol
  10. Thanks for this sound mod, it's awesome. I put it in with tduzoqqer's Veyron, and it sounds like the Fires of Hell! I probly need to tweak something using TDUPE, but I'm not sure what. Or maybe I'll just leave it like the FIRES OF HELL!!!
  11. Okay, I actually succeeded! Here's what I did... 1. Uninstalled 1.68 community patch. 2. Went to where I backed up my whole euro folder (yes, the whole thing), and re-copied each folder one at a time, just to be sure everything was back to original. (Avatar, CHARACTERS, Details folders, etc.) 3. Went into game, and sure enough, there were two car dealers greyed out, one was the European Classics place in downtown, directly south from the Kawasaki dealer, along the curve in the road, across from a tall building. The other was west from the Jaguar dealer, North East of the real estate office on the other side of the freeway. Went to both, unlocked bike showrooms, and got the message, etc. 4. Went to each bike showroom, and got 1 of each bike just in case lol 5. Went back to house and re-selected my Ascari as current vehicle. Let the game save. Exit the game. 6. Made a backup of savegame folder. 7. Re-installed community patch 1.68 8. Went back into game. There WAS a dealership that I had not visited this time. It is the European Independents place with the Weissman roadster, which is South and a little East frmo the Ferrari / Maserati place that has the Enxo and MC12, across the canal. I went there, but bikes were already unlocked anyways. I don't know if I just missed that showroom before, because the icon is very hard to see, but after spending much of last night cruising around in my Ascari LOOKING everywhere, I find it doubtful I would have missed it. But, I must admit it is a possibilty. :} Anyways, it seems to be working just fine, and maybe now I'll be able to add some of the awesome cars that people have made? I saw some that minime and Tool831 made that I would like to add :)
  12. Thanks so much for replying! :) Yes, I discovered all the showrooms, and went inside all of them, not just drove to them. I ended up getting a Ascari KZ1 and was driving all over the island, and warping around to make sure I had visited all the car showrooms. But, the motorcycle showrooms were still locked. They all have the icons showing on the map, so... unless there's one or more that don't show up unless you find them, I have been to all of them. Maybe I will try "converting" back to standard, and see if my savegame will still play, then unlock bikes, THEN try to go back to 1.68b lol. Probly won't work.
  13. I swear I went to all the car dealers. Not just drove to them, but went in all of them too. I had started with a new game after installing 1.68B community patch, because my old savegame would not load in. If I can't unlock the motorcycle showrooms, I can't get the bikes, and do the bike races... Maybe the game is still expecting the old showrooms, and they aren't there any more? Or are there hidden ones somewhere?
  14. Thanks for making this mod you guys, it works fine for me, I can install - uninstall just fine... But I need to know, How do I unlock the motorcycle showrooms? I swear I've been to all the car showrooms, and the bike dealers are still locked. I was unable to get my previous save game to play, so I just started over. If I can't unlock the bikes, I can't do the bike races. But I *was* able to turn the RUF RGT into a Porsche 997 GT3 lol. I followed the figures for the car from wikipedia, and used TDUPE to put it in. It was a good car, but now I went back to standard and uninstalled the patch, at least until I figure out the bikes thing.
  15. I know, it's weird lol. You can take the Grip up to 1800 to really see what I'm talkin about. At low speeds, the turning is like, backwards looking, but then the bike starts to lay down at about 80 I guess. I pretty much did the same thing to the ZX12R, and it's just crazy, I barely have to move my wheel.
