A rather obscure yet unknown Driver-styled game from Namco. It even has its own free roam mode!

Wait, I guess I've seen this game in my country.

Honestly, I never see it anywhere around here. Even in the most bargain bargain bin (Rumble Racing comes in as second rarest, I think)...

Also, it's quite heavy in PCSX2 (need Software mode to run properly, FMV's way too 'colorful', etc)

Is the game completed ?

I think I have the disk of it somewhere in the 'dusty' part of my room, I will check out how it works in my PCSX2 ;)

It's still nowhere from complete; I think I'm still stuck in...chapter 2. Too busy doing things in RL >_<


Also, watch my advice in my earlier post. This thing's not a easy thing to emulate (just like almost every Namco's PS2 titles....Ace Combat, anyone?)


And have I mentioned, ultra-jazzy soundtracks?

It's not problem running any game in PCSX2 actually... depends if my disks are not broken (some where, and it was impossible to copy the data from them/make ISO).

Don't worry, I will check out if I could complete it ;)

'k then, and you may want to replace my shots with better views anyway.

RacingFreak TW (99)

I will see what I can do in near future :)

Just tested it out in PCSX2, and was surprised to see it running in 6x native resolution in Hardware mode :)

I might post some of the cars, but that... later ;)

PS
RVR72GV, if you manage to get further with the chapters, if you can of course, extract the savegame from the Memory Card using mymc and upload it somewhere. Thanks in advance! This will be very, very helpful :)

So, how the heck do you use hardware mode? Mine's always get graphic issues in HW mode. (I'm using svn4962 BTW)

Here's the issue (hint: notice those weird boxes, yeah, the whole game screen itself actually 'freezes', blocking whole screen. But I could get good FPS with it somehow) :

And see how 'colorful' the FMVs has become:

And saw it.

Sadly the FMVs are bugged for me too :(

And you're forced to watch them all :/

RacingFreak TW (99)

2011-12-14 09:11

Hmm... I am thinking of putting most of the cars as Made For Game. Why? Because some of them really do not have real-life cars to compare and are most likey fantasy designs.

About the save game....

Here you go. ;)

Nope, it's Priyo City.

Nope. Even there's *surprisingly* no Ridge Racer-related car/manufacturer.

Hey RacingFreak.

I'm thinking about sharing that 'secret' to me, as a reward for the savedata ;)

RacingFreak TW (99)

2011-12-15 13:18

Well. There's no secret :D

I just play it in Hardware mode without a problem. Not sure why it gives you too much problems. Try with newer SVN build for PCSX2 maybe?

Not sure though. It's the same in every builds. Even the latest one (although it only occurs while driving close to another object/wall. Both DX9 & DX10 HW nets the same result). Strange.

Hey RacingFreak, can you help me complete this page? ;)

Great. I just stumbled upon a Ridge Racer reference in this game; there's a road that exactly resembles the famous Seaside Route 765 track.

FYI, the track layout's exactly the same, save for the billboard ads.

A Ridge Racer car. Maybe this is an answer to you RVR.

From vids on Youtube, this game looks fun as hell. Now, if only RF would cough up the ISO. ( :P )
This page reminds me-what the hell happened to RVR?
