>>7590697>Welcome to The Garagecringe lol.
>>7591416>the sage in all fields dork thinks he can judge otherslmaoall your posts are shit, faggot
these threads don't get many posts because racing games are by far the most 'adult' genre of game and /vr/ is entirely for bingbings and garbage pc98 porn games
>>7591449>all your posts are shit, faggot>"Welcome to The Garage"lol
>>7591452they don't get any replies because outside of about 10 games total there are basically no racers actually worth playing and every single one of them plays the same. racing is the ultimate pseud genre and only midwits enjoy them.
>>7590697>Revenge > 3Gay opinion.

Bunch of fags shitting up this thread so far. What /vroom/ games are you playing?
>>7593128I'm still occasionally playing juiced 2. Just got a large difficulty spike and now it's more long0term grinding the missions so I haven't had the desire to go back.
>>7593128I'm actually not playing anything right now. Just reupping for /vroom/ friends when I can.
I like the way this sucks.
>>7593849Mobil 1 Rally Championship, for PC and PS1. After a long time of searching I finally found the game I played on the PS1 when I was a kid that had "a car with mud all over its blue paintjob and golden rims". This shit is hard as hell compared to the PC version.
>>7593905>Mobil 1 Rally Championship>on PS1yeah, sorry for your childhood lad.
>>7593909I played for like a day or two. I had better stuff.
>>7593914you had nfs? hs was prime ps1 racing
>>7593919Nah. I had R4, Demolition Derby, Moto Racer 2.
>>7593931das good shit son
>>7590697Have you heard about the insane world-record on D07-Race?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_b67SC7Y4qAhttps://tmnforever.tm-exchange.com/main.aspx?action=trackshow&id=2429What are your records?Yes, TMN is retro (released in 2006).And "Trackmania Nations Forever" is its remaster, so it's retro-by-proxy.
Are the Initial D games on the ps2 any good? Which one is the best?
>>7594859>there's an inofficial patch to make old TMN run on win10 despite being starforce-shitnow this is podracing
>>7594859>Epic lord of the rings music>Stupid fucking meme racing game
>>7594862There's only one I think, and its good for what it is, yeah.
>>7591452What's the best emu for TXR1?
>>7594981I WANNNA FRYYYY SKRY HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
>>7591472There are tonnes of good racing games but as the post you replied to alludes to they don't appeal to the Nintendo or coomer crowd and as such go unknown. Total Drivin' is a great example of a good game nobody posts about.
>>7594995LET'S GOOOOOOTO GAY BAAAAAR
>>7591452Yeah, racing fans are by and far the most mature fans I’ve seen and don’t really worry about bashing shit and instead hve fun
>>7591987been playing Revenge lately after playing a bunch of 3. There are pros and cons but I feel like they made the AI a lot more interesting to race against at least. Even in the first few races they feel way more active and like they're really trying to fuck with you, which in turn makes it more satisfying when you take them out. The shortcuts I've been finding interesting too, I feel like they're not always in your best interest to take on burning laps if they don't give you any opportunity to gain boost, so you gotta pick and choose which ones are worth it to get that gold. I've been warming up to the crash mode, I initially didn't like it but I've been finding it a little more challenging to get gold overall. In 3 you pretty much just need to make sure you get that 4x multiplier and blow up in a good spot. revenge crash mode I've found you have to think slightly more about not just how you're going to get to the 2nd area of targets but when you actually want to do that and how to maximize your damage before then. Idk they're both pretty fun
>>7593128Currently playing gran turismo 4. Working on getting my Super License. Recently got a midnight purple skyline and upgraded it to 700+ hp. Holy smokes, its so fun to drive.
TU TUTUT TUTUTUTU TURUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
Wow, Colin Mcrae on the PS1 is pretty good.
>>7597183Reminded Colin Mcrae is a child killer.
>>7598150What does that have to do with the games?
>>7598178If Mcrae was transsexual I am positive you would find a flaw in that.
>>7598230Again, what would that have to do with the games? Stop being one of those retards who can't disassociate people from products.
>>7597183the ps1 port runs like ass looks like ass and controls like shit, the PC version is so much more responsive and fun
>>7598503>controls like shit>he fell for the NTSC colin mcrae 1 joke
>>7598602pretty sure i played the pal version but regardless it's a shitty experience using crappy analog input at a resolution too low to make out the stage infront of you at 25fps game plays great at high resolution 60fps with proper analog input
>>7598626>at a resolution too low to make out the stage infront of you at 25fpsReally? I never had trouble with it years ago on a 14" CRT.
>>7598640because years ago on a 14 inch CRT you were a kid with more patience who wouldn't have thought that not seeing where you're going was a problem because Colin McRae Rally was the only game your mom bought you that year and you had more patience to play the stage over and over until you learned the stage and your vague memories of the past filtered this part out
>>7598678Nice string of incorrect assumptions there.
>>7598503PC version looks static like a corpse.
>>7596457>>7600724I don't know why, but it still manages to put a smile on my face.
reddit tourists feel the need to create a general thread for any topic they like, ignoring that it is not popular or even discussed at all. I mean seriously, who the fuck puts Mario Kart together with Gran Turismo? a desperate reddit nigger that's who
>>7600804Pretty sure nobody has ever talked about Mario Kart in these threads.
>Welcome to The Garage, a thread where fans of racing vidya can discuss their favorite arcade, sim, kart>kart
>>7600831>karting games are only Mario KartAre you retarded?
F-Zero (1990) still holds up!
>>7593812>Rally2kIs the Rally2k shitposter still there on /ovg/? Asking for a friend.
>>7600724RETS GO AWAY
>>7603159>go on /ovg/>see this: http://www.simracingdesign.com/yeah, fuck that
>>7603159/ovg/ is horrible for actual game discussion, nothing but autists who only care about drama and the hardest of hard sims. Fun is foreign to them
>>7603181Guess you know the antics/people of that forum? (A NR2003 modding forum run by and filled by oldfag-ass simdads)
>>7603221NR 2003 is a really good game but i would never want to discuss it because it just brings out autism
>>7603221not particularly, noI haven't visited /ovg/ for a while so...
>>7603227Don’t bother, that general is trash
>>7603235I only went because of that guy mentioning it, I wouldn't have gone otherwise.
>>7603251It could be good if they didn’t just care about extremely hard realism and “racing etiquette”. Sorry I enjoy wrecking into my opponents
>>7603284That is why wreckfest exists.
>>7603224I saw some track mods of it and found it rather odd. I think it was this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZEY7G94AW8I played NR2003 years back but this just seems way too silly.
>>7598096HOLY SHITi remember the snow level sweden or something. the graphics, and the light in some moments was the most realistic and atmospheric shit i ever saw then
>>7604159'tis a good game. Not as highly regarded as RBR but still no slouch.
>>7595036Hands down one of my favorite soundtracks
>>7604457Honestly I am surprised anyone else remembers the game. While the handling is a bit twitchy for my liking you are right the OST is very much that late 90's techno/trance that was extremely popular for british racing games of the time due to, well techno and the like being popular in the country at the time. See also: why DnB was used for the likes of rollcage and wipeout as that was what the british were dancing to at the time.
>>7593128Finally got this game working. Doing the championships.
>>7605065What platform? Because that looks worse than shit
>>7605897Pc. Any ideas for track names. I got Cuckhole and Sneed farm, any other good meme names?
>>7605932Big Bill Hell's
>>7605932Mr Bones' Wild RideI've been told MR2 sucks and MR1 is better, although I grew up with MR2
>>7605946I grew up with Moto Racer 2 as well, on PS1 along with >>7593812
>>7605959So did I but the PS1 frame rate tanks when there's a lot of racers on screen, yet PC mustard race can have 24 bikes in the grid.
>>7591452Post lap times on empty thread, get loads of grief "errrrr, posting lap times eerrrrrrr", no wonder it don't get many posts it's not worth the effort making 'content'
>>7605979Next response "ewrrrrrr spam though its spaming spamspamspmspsmapsapsamspams"The lap times showed player 1 getting faster and also started to show how the CPU cars changed behaviour with a more competitive player 1."ereererereree spaming lap times eeeeerrrr">and that's why everything is shit.
>>7605979Post gameplay, anon. Ignore the fagolas.
>>7605979>>7605987That shit was months ago. Why not just try it again.
>>7593128https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMIEFXdr-H4Been getting back into the intensity that is Downhill Domination after so many years. I'm loving it and subtly getting the notion that it's one of those "it was a different time" games, especially with the presence of the original version of Get Retarded
>>7605946How'd you get it to look good?>>/wsg/3869180
>>7606075>>>/wsg/3869180Forgot 1 meme arrow.
>>7606075>>7606084Mine is 16 seconds and yours is 46 seconds. Also you can only cram so much bitrate into 3mb so you need to keep the resolution small so the ugly part of it shows way less. Bitrate doesn't play well with jaggies and unfiltered textures, mine is being played in D3D and yours doesn't look like it. Also that keyboard steering wtf.
>>7606134>keyboard steering wtf.Controller.I'm fairly new to webms. I know the limit on 4chan is awful, makes it a real pain. The game wouldn't look all that better with a better video.
After lots of thought I think I prefer the PC version of HP2 over the PS2 version. It mostly boils down to the subtle difference in handling model which feels - to me at least - that bit more consistent on PC so my enjoyment of the driving is more and ultimately that is the entire point of any racing game.
>>7605946Moto Racer is fun...until you ride the dirt bikes.
How was this game? Any thoughts?I played CART Fury on PS2 but that is basically Hydro Thunder with open wheel cars.
>>7593128Not retro but I can't get enough of PGR4. No game captures the spirit of driving quite like it even though its more arcade than sim it puts forza/turismo to shame with how unique each car feels. I was playing with the 911 and you can feel the suspension loading up in corners and somehow sense when the rear is breaking loose. No other racer even comes close to the excitement of PGR literally the only reason I keep my 360 around.
>>7608759The entire series is good
>>7608823True, i've not played 1 and 2 in a while so I might track those down seeing as they play on 360 BC. Apparently it's Bill Gates favourite game so he's not totally unhuman. Only way I would take his vaccine would be If he promised another PGR.
>>7608759On top of this PGR4's graphics are insane to me even today. I cannot fucking wait until it can be emulated well, especially because the load times for the game are atrocious on the 360.
>>7608759I was just thinking of revisiting this game again. I think this would be my first time playing it with manual transmission if I came back to it.
>>7608904Yeah the graphics are solid and the sound is amazing too especially if you play with surround and hear other cars coming up from behind. They nailed the engine sounds and you can hear the turbos/blow off valves which is cool compared to gran turismo where the cars sound like vacuum cleaners. Every time i play its like a shot of adrenalin and i sweat profusely. Better than sex if you ask me.
One thing that bugs me about PGR (and I guess MSR, if we're going to keep it retro) is the nature of earning Kudos.I would prefer to just race cleanly and smoothly but you're encouraged to take risks to earn Kudos at the possible expense of position.
>>7598503This looks soulless, anon. W7 widescreen patch and dgvoodoo2 don't even work. Are you kidding me?
>>7609005To me that’s the beauty of it, you have to combine style with substance, it’s like a natural evolution of ridge racer
>>7609025>widescreen patchwhy would you play it in widescreen? are you retarded? >dgvoodoo2 dont workit worked for me, sounds like you are retardedif you're too dumb to install a PC game then maybe stick to emulating shitty console ports
>>7609005Theres still a lot of game to get into even if you ignore the kudos system. It's just such a thrill to play and makes for a great change of pace if you've been playing a slow burning jrpg or whatever. This guy gets ithttps://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-07-13-why-pgr4-remains-arcade-racing-at-its-best
>>7609098>Why would you play a racing game where you need spatial awareness in widescreenBecause it's a fucking PC and modding is a hallmark of PC games, you fucking retard. Kill yourself.
>>7609103PGR4 and Outrun 2006 are probably the last truly great arcade racers. I liked the motorstorm and forza horizon games but none have reached the same level those two did
>>7609107>muh spatial awareness>in a fucking rally game, designed for 4:3, played in 4:3, where everything you need to see is directly infront of you framed within 4:3 Maybe you should just stretch the entire game out like the fucking mongoloid you are.
>>7609118Didn't see you talking shit at >>7598096 >>7604238 . Even the PS1 port has a widescreen option.Maybe I should stretch it out like I did your mom.
May sound stupid but, any idea on how to get gold on the first B-License test on gran turismo 1? I've managed to get gold on every other one but on the first one i only get to silver
>>7609118i fucking love 90 day fiance
>>7609342Indy 500 is better than both.
Just messing with the debug cameras and you can really see how tightly the first game is designed compared to NFSU2.
>>7608904It's legit the one racing series I haven't played yetnever got it on 360, isn't backwards compatible on the Xbone either.
>>7610942fuck, now you reminded me of taking that chinatown shortcut
Bump. Fucking bump anons
Thanks for not replying to my post, faggots, I had to try the game for myself and waste my time.
Is it true Midnight Club 3 was never ported to PC because second game had a high rate of piracy?
I've downloaded Daytona 3 and got Daytona 2 working on PC flawlessly, and to complete the last piece of the puzzle I would also get the original game.But what's the definitive way to play the game on PC? The 360 version seems to be the best version, but AFAIK there's no way to play that port on PC.
>>7594862Yeah Initial D Special Stage on PS2 is the best of the Initial D games I've played.I've never been able to beat it though. I manage to get to Bunta but he just puts and ass whooping on me the likes never seen before, I can't even get close to beating him.
>>7615526Wasn't she like 15? Jailbait.
TXR is boring as FUCK and I have no idea why this series is so beloved.
>>7615554If you read the court documents it gets much, much worse. He will never be let out.
>>7615554Yes. 15 months.
>>7615552Lol same. I'm sure it's possible you basically need to be able to do a perfect Akina DH run with manual.
>Play MCII at 60fps>cars get the durability of wet cardboardThank god Savo has brain train psycho as his tune because fuck that guy.
>download Gran Turismo 3 after like a million years since my last play>recently saw a guy saying he liked the game/series but couldn't be arsed to do the licenses again (at least get the golds)>feel like, surely it'll be easy to get the golds in [the current year]>nopefucking hell. and i'm being a save-stating cheating bitch, too.
>>7616867Be thankful you didn't pick GT4 otherwise this will be etched into your soul as the sound of hate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ya1ySdk9Oao
what's the racing thread's take on the TOCA series? TOCA 1 was the first PSX game i got and i played it religiously, was terrible at it since i didn't understand the concept of braking but i loved the ton of ridiculous cheats you could activate like raining literal cats and dogs and driving a tankthe race driver series was also pretty fun from what i remember, shame it morphed into GRID then died of GRIDS
>>7617127TOCA 1 and 2 are great and that is far as I care to go with the series.
>>7617127PS1 games were funnever really got to grips with the Race Driver story
>>7617141have you tried the pc versions? only played them on psx and wondering if its worth getting them working on a pc>>7617147yeah i found race driver interesting but i was never any good at it at the time, considering downloading race driver 3 (assuming they improved with each sequel, only tried the first back in the day) and giving it a shot since i love the idea of racing games with storylines
>>7617158>have you tried the pc versions?I have not but they seem okay based on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiNhzS2CKn8I guess it is a case of either stretched or black bars as I doubt anyone has made a widescreen patch.
>>7617158>considering downloading race driver 3 (assuming they improved with each sequel, only tried the first back in the day) and giving it a shot since i love the idea of racing games with storylinesfrom what I remember RD2 and RD3 got rid of Ryan McKane so you don't have this weird third person story
>>7617176seems like it runs better than the psx ones but i guess i'll just stick with the ones i'm familiar with from my childhood, controller support is probably pretty hard to get working too>>7617178from pcgw 3 seems like the one that's easiest to get working and has xinput support so i'm gonna give that a shot i guess, if i can find a copy
>>7617182>seems like it runs better than the psx onesMight be worth looking into if the PSX games are framecapped as if not any half decent emulator allows for cpu overclocking so you could (theoretically) push out 60fps.
>>7615759its a driving game, i guess you don't like driving
>>7616867You mean you don't keep a clean "day 1" save game with all licensed golded, with an alternate version with all its prize cars discarded?
>>7617194It's not really a big enough issue that i'd bother overclocking the emulated cpu to make the games run better, just that pc footage looks smooth as fuck.
>>7615759You can rotary swap a beetle
What is the worst, most boring, most mind-numbing kind of racing and why is it circuit racing?
>>7617267Depends, do you mean lap based or real life circuits? Either way, 6th and 7th gen proved that open world is a meme most of the time and Gran Turismo made real life circuits soulful.
>>7617231Just testing the NTSC version of toca 2 on ps1 at default cpu clocks it runs at 20fps and below lol.>>7617267Circuit racing isn't boring in of itself, it is sim racing that is boring.
>>7617272>>7617279Lap-based circuits that are just empty open areas that allow you to see half the track ahead of you without any surprises are outright depressing. It just doesn't hold up against the thrill of guessing where a sharp turn on an incline in a rally track will end up or if a sinuous tunnel in a city/togue track will spit you out right in front of a steep decline that will send your car flying.
>>7617298You could've just said rally stages are the best and we would all understand instead of being a fag beating around it
>>7617321Rally stages really are the best but the point is about circuit racing.
>>7617328The feeling of tackling a rally stage blind adapting to danger on the fly gives a nice sense of adrenaline, but well made circuits (fake or real) is like a really well constructed rollercoaster that flows really well. Open world can be good if your name is Midnight Club and the checkpoint layout is dragging you through clever routes and set pieces in a giant urban playground.
>>7617345>Open world can be good if your name is Midnight Club and the checkpoint layout is dragging you through clever routes and set pieces in a giant urban playground.Midnight Club is city racing though, and a good one, at that.
Is Lagoon a good game? I heard it has RPG elements so I'm curious, but at the same time it's japanese only.
>>7617464It has 15 minutes of unskippable untranslated cutscenes with bad CG before the first race. Make that what you will.
>>7617464the racing is pretty shit, the rpg elements are what makes it interesting but its not translated and unfortunately racing games don't usually attract the same translation autism as traditional rpgs>>7617528the bad cg is fucking hilarious though
>>7617464Around 30 hours of playtime so I can give a review about it.The car building system is the best feature of the game, you can create wacky car combinations, even more than TXR. I mean, you can make MR2-style mid-engine city bus with V12 Ferrari engine.The most glaring problem of the game is it has both problems of RPGs and Racing games, that makes major turn-off to the opposite fans.For RPG fans:>The car handling is a bit weird and takes a while to get used to.>You have to win every race to proceed, or you'll get a game over.And for Racing fans:>Random "battle" encounters everywhere you go.>You have to go to specific place and talk to specific person to proceed the story, some even by chance. (I'm currently stuck because of this).>After not playing for a while, you forgot where you are on the story, and more importantly your current objective. This is the main reason I struggle to continue playing my saved games on JRPGs.
>>7618857Shame but I hope we get a translation patch like we did for Dr Slump

What kind of sadistic asshole designed this mission?
>>7620551He and Raycevick have done more to keep people interested in NFS and racing games than EA in last 10 years
>>7620637A geordie.>>7620642They haven't done shit in the grand scheme of things. EA promotes NFS on all of the major places you are likely to see it - a couple two-bit streamers does not inspire people to go play games, especially not the ones you can't actually buy (and as we all know twitch donators love to pay).

The only good /vroom/ e-celeb is Colourshed

>>7620781i think we should refer to the thread as 'the garage' as much as possible because it seems to cause problems inside some autist's head>>7620791looks like the NES version to me, has the gears mapped to the up/down buttons so my fat thumbs always accidentally shift on my shoddy chinese knockoff controlleralso i wish the menus weren't screwed up in vanishing point in flycast

Good morning! How is everyone doing in the garage today?
>>7624263Waiting to watch a trailer for a non-retro racing game.

>>7624908In case you're not trolling, Ian Watkins was the lead singer of Lostprophets.
>>7624908I think you need to re-read the reply chain. That is about his crimes, nothing related to the GT-R. The original joke was about it being a pedo car because of the livery and his crimes.

>>7624937>1.4 million listeners on last.fmOK zoomer
>>7624937They were on the soundtrack of the game, you retard.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7uz7ftC8HA
>>7624952>1.4 million flies like shitDon't care, faggot.
>>7624970>they changed the track name from "To Hell We Ride" to "Ride"Almost as funny as when they completely edited F words from Mudvayne's Determined
>>7624972Keeep embarrassing yourself
>>7625002leave him alone, he just listens to videogame soundtracks exclusively like a good little virgin
>>7620871That looks unbelievably ass
>>7625093thank you for your review, take it up with the guy who made the shader
Rage Racer is really just hitting that spot for me lately /vr/os. The soundtrack is amazing, the track design, while not abundant in choice, takes a while to master, and you gotta change the way you think about them when the reverse GP comes. The overall vibe too is really just, idk. R4 is all glowing sunsets, radiant blue skies, or twinkly dark nights, RR has more interesting lighting conditions - sometimes it's just kind of a dreary overcast day. The collision detection/handling can definitely suck my balls though.
Hmm, shill games.
It sucks that rolling-start is gonna be closed, the RGDB was very useful. I never registered on the forums but I always wished they had a Discord lol.
>>7625167I want to play Porsche Unleashed but I'm waiting until I can set up my Windows 98 PC somewhere more accessible.
>>7626040Please tell me you will run it in software mode for extra authenticity.
Any of you fags ever get a problem with directx games that freeze other programs that are also using directx, like music players? I'm trying to run a game with a higher quality version of its ost in a media player in the background, but when I switch to the game, the player stops, and when I switch to the player, the game (and its audio) freezes. Are they using the same dll and can't function at the same time?
>>7625123It certainly feels more industrial than R4. You'll love the third GP. It'll fuck your shit up if you make exactly two mistakes or more.
>>7627049Honestly the biggest challenge in the game has to come from the other cars. You think you have a corner figured out with the car you're using, but the only problem is, there's 2 cars there and you can't afford to tap into them at all, especially if it's during/just before an uphill part. Overtaking feels like a huge W just because it's one less to worry about.
>>7627119By the way you can't win the game with the objectively best looking car (Gnade) The first two places are a nightmare to take over when the fucking Lizard truck is in the lead. You hit anything once with less than an entire lap to recover and you might as well restart.
>>7627128I tried to stick with gnade all the way but eventually I just accepted reality ie that the fully upgraded Lizard is the way and the truth
>>7624896thanks. that's crazy. still wish we d get an underground 3
My 4 Wheel Thunder disc is fucked up. Won't load the next course in the Championship mode.Ended up playing NFS:HP2 on PS2 instead.
>>7624937>>7624970me reading all these quotesI'm convinced he is a full on zoomer who has zero understanding of the topic at hand
>>7628554fretting over some pedo just because one of his songs is in an nfs game is pretty pointless in a thread about retro racing vidya desuworse than e-celebs
>tfw Wayne Static has been dead for over 6 yearshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMCbJB4yNXohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rw8IOhRMjwo
>>7628720>Static died on November 1, 2014 in Landers, California, three days before his 49th birthday. He had consumed half of an oxycodone pill as well as alcohol that morning before going to bed with his wife. She woke up later that day to find that he had died in his sleep. His family issued a statement stating that rumors of his death being drug-related were false, noting that he and Wray had stopped using illicit drugs in 2009. An autopsy later confirmed that Static had died of multiple prescription drug toxicity, consisting of the painkillers oxycodone, hydromorphone, and the anti-anxiety medication alprazolam combined with alcohol, though the report also noted that years of past "chronic prescription drug and alcohol abuse" was a contributing factor.not good
Anyone play Test drive overdrive? Is it actually one of the 3 good test drive games?
>>7630960it's alright, doesn't drag on too long but the handling is kind of weirdsoundtrack has some bangershttps://youtu.be/MHl2OzgPlgAhttps://youtu.be/Trd49Da0gf0
Years of holding down right trigger to accelerate has atrophied my thumb and now playing an old game where the throttle is on the face buttons gives my thumb a mean cramp...
>>7631451>Holding trigger with your thumbHow the hell do you hold your gamepad?
>>7631474Nvm misread lmao
>>7631474You completely missed the point, I'm saying I was using a different finger to play modern racing games where the triggers are the throttle and brake so when I have to play an older game that requires me to go back to my thumb to do those duties, it hurts.
Im honestly impressed that after the amount of gran turismo and other racing games ive played with my ps2 controller, my X button is still totally fine
>>7631887Sony's controllers have always been built to take abuse, though the sixaxis was a bit flaky.
>>7631893>Sony's controllers have always been built to take abuseThey really aren't, the ribbon cables that connect the contact pads are flaky as fuck and oxidise or just simply break over time, I've had sealed ps1 and 2 controllers which come dead. Primary symptom of the oxidisation progressing is random inputs being pressed or one over and over again. dualshock 1-3 have this problem and they didn't fix it until the fucking ds4 (which has it's own problems)
>>7632063I've been using a dualshock 3 I've dropped a few times for over a decade and it works fine. None of my own ever broke for the time I had them.
>>7632063>They really aren'tJust because you are sausage fingers mcgee who chimps out and throws their shit around doesn't meant normal humans are.
>>7632068>>7632071>maybe don't be a raging tard who smashes themOxidisation isn't fucking dropping them.
>>7632063>They really aren't, the ribbon cables that connect the contact pads are flaky as fuck and oxidise or just simply break over time.Can confirm this. I bought a second-hand PS2 controller last year and the pads were fucking failing constantly. Ridiculous.
>>7631887My original DualShock 2 leaks oil all over the place, and the X button is permanently depressed. It still works, but yeah.
>>7632079Where do you even live that causes them to oxidize?
>>7590697Forgive my IQ but I need some GT buffs to help me out.What does (NA) and (J) mean? You would think it means North American spec and Japan spec, but there is an IS 200 (J) when Japan already has an Altezza over there. Also, I found a MX-5 (NA, J) which makes no sense to me. It's either LHD or RHD, how can it be both?
>>7632093da moon - where all good games reach.
>>7633856theres no atmosphere on da moon let alone any oxygen to oxidize it
>>7633865>theres no atmosphereRead more science journals anon.
Something I really don't fucking like about retro racers is lackluster audio design, especially when some games don't even let me replace car sounds with my own custom ones.
>>7634616Something I don't like about retro racing is almost none of it was worth a shit until gen 5 started.
>>7635491That is just the reality of the genre - you need depth and as such require 3D which sadly means a lot of solid 2D titles are kinda crap these days and are mostly regarded highly solely for the nostalgia. It is easy to forget how massive the first ridge racer was on PSX because of the 3D (that and sorta being an arcade port).
>>75906972 or Coast 2 coast?Is it worth owning both or 1 is enough?
>>76355852006 includes the arcade mode from 2
I've been under the impression you get almost all the content from OutRun 2 in Coast 2 Coast anyway.
>>7635580>(that and sorta being an arcade port)An arcade-perfect port.
>>7636001It isn't - it has reduced graphical detail and runs at half the framerate. It was however the closest home 3D was to the arcade at the time by a huge margin.
>>7636024Still made up for it with Turbo Spec though. Even the PS2 port of Sega Rally was considered perfect despite the lower resolution
>>7636050>Still made up for it with Turbo Spec thoughSure turbo is much closer (really it just the reduced opponent count) but that came about 5 years later. OG ridge racer blew everyone's mind but to call it arcade perfect is misleading.
Played some retro racing games today.Had fun.
>>7615519I don't think so? Don't remember it even being addressed at all.
>>7615519HOUSE REAL BIGCARS REAL BIG
Goddamn I forgot how smooth RR45 is. Makes me regret not buying a negcon back in the day.
>>7637250I might want to try that game.
>>7637250>Filtered UIWhat the fuck did you do
>>7640420Gotta find a use for JINC2.
How the fuck do I win the sweden rally in CMR 2? Short gear ration, weak breaks, high suspension and downshifting are getting me nowhere.
It doesn't suck.
Why the fuck is this so hard!?>>7640734it does anon - search your feelings you know this to be true.
Recently picked up a NegCon, cleaned it out but it rattles a little when you twist it forward and back. Maybe a millimetre but it's enough to bug me. I can't remember, are they all like this, or is it something I did that I can go in and fix?
>>7640884Yeah, they're a little rattly. especially after uh...25 years is it?
>>7641052It must be a design flaw. Mine was spotless inside and I did add silicon grease to all the gears to smooth out wear and movement, but otherwise this thing looks brand new inside.
>Shit snow physics>Shit textures that make in hard to tell where the driveable road ends and where the dirt that slows my car down to a crawl begins, making apexing a gamble>Unsolved framedrops, especially on special stages where the game doesn't register the gear shifting unless I press the buttons 3-4 times in a row, which even dgvoodoo can't fix>Overall worse than the first game in every wayShit sequel, shit port. No wonder people only talk about the original PS1 version. Last time I give anon's shit taste a chance.
>>7641489works on my machine
What do you guys think of this?
>>7643173Solid/10. Not a system seller but one worthy of any collection.
>>7643173Earning Kudos is a bit of a pain in the ass but it's a decent racer just by the merits of racing opponents.
>>7643173Super Runabout is the superior Dreamcast car game.
>>7643173the lawnmower is the best
California Speed is a guilty pleasure but people only know it for the creepy billboard.
>>7643173Best racing game on the system. PGR2 is superior, but MSR is still pretty damn awesome.
