I can't find a list of differences between the Rev versions, so I will keep it only at version 1.0 for now. I will keep the v64 version for the moment unless it causes problems.
MGNS8M 18 Jun 2021 15:57
If possible, please use the provided EEP save-files in the forum for "secret" cars if you are using RetroArch/Libretro and can't press more than 2 C-buttons at once.
thegreatoz42 19 Jun 2021 13:40
Thank you so much! For secret cars in Retroarch: Run an N64 title. Open the quick menu (F1). Go to options. Turn on "Independent C-button Controls". Restart Retroarch. Now you can use the keyboard keys X+S+Q for P1, P2 can be mapped manually.
MGNS8M 19 Jun 2021 16:21
Oh, that is possible now? Great, that will help out a lot.
GAMERJET 19 Jun 2021 19:23
Excellent set, Thank you MGNS8M!!!
RossWyatt 13 Oct 2021 16:39
I figured that not losing once at all would have a higher RA score. Maybe I'm missing something, oh well. At least I managed to do it. :D
FennWitch 9 Jun 2023 00:56
Mastered. Loved the arcade machine as a child, and I was excited for this. However, having to spend a total of 14 or so hours on such a repetitive and potentially frustrating game, all for just 265 points? Come on now, that's a bit stingy.
MGNS8M 12 Aug 2023 23:50
I'd give it more points if I felt like I could, but since most things involve unlimited-continues I'm not really sure if it's alright or not.


As far as Progress/Win-Conditions go... I didn't really think of it, but I guess I don't have any generic "beat game on easy/medium/hard" because the car-progress does that for you.

I guess in the strictest terms, I will set all Final-Upgrade achievements as Win Condition, but that means you will need to upgrade at least one vehicle fully to get it. But that also means you will only need to do that for one vehicle.
FennWitch 17 Aug 2023 05:30
Ah, that's fair then. I can understand if there's not much that can be done with it, it's a pretty limited game. It is what it is lol.

Truthfully, I made that comment being super worn out from that mastery run, so sorry for not really providing any constructive feedback. Thank you for the set regardless, it did feel nice to have a reason to replay an old favorite of mine. Much appreciated <3
MGNS8M 24 Aug 2023 18:43
Oh no problem, I do know it's a difficult thing to pull off and that lingering feeling of frustration is expected. I think often when it subsides it's a good feeling to know it's over though... XD
MGNS8M 4 Sep 2023 21:07
Looks like policy took over again, so I guess I will be setting any-car-upgrade(basically any game-completion on any difficulty) as a Win-Condition.
Talzuz 5 Oct 2023 19:39
Looks like by default in Retroarch, if you're using a standard gamepad, you can hold the right trigger to turn the ABXY buttons into C-buttons. Useful for the cheat codes, since with a stick, you can't hold multiple buttons simultaneously.
spyro96321 17 Nov 2023 19:19
does not recognize achievements
MGNS8M 17 Nov 2023 21:29
It does if you use the correct version.
spyro96321 17 Nov 2023 23:54
I downloaded the version using i eur and none of it works
MGNS8M 18 Nov 2023 00:09
On the upper-right side of this page is a button marked "Supported Game Files" which shows that the version linked is the USA version.
MGNS8M 18 Nov 2023 19:34
Oh good, it does recalc the 10-second-Beaten stat when you get the newest progress-tagged achievements.

Also o-oh my g-goodness, I f-finally beat Easy Cruis'n Mode af-af-ter twoooo yearrrrs... oh my aching bones...
tinxeisi 28 Nov 2023 00:54
First game ever completed. Great set, nice job!
aphexlambda 29 Dec 2023 03:08
Mastered! Easy one as long as you keep a cool head about the one-credit hardest difficulty win. Everything else is just pretty much progression/patience.
GregHouse007 13 Feb 2024 22:36
Check it out! San Francisco! I loved the voice of the girl in this game, I loved the music too. I always wanted to have this game as a kid. It was one of the first N64 games released so it would show on the Nintendo magazine as one of the best sellers. Back then, I thought the game must have been pretty good if it was among the best sellers. Besides, the jump from 2D to 3D that we all experienced back then was so substantial that it felt we were "playing the future" with these racing games. When playing now, I kept being annoyed at the girl in the grand canyon track because I thought near the end she was mocking me saying "Wow, not rushing it, uh?". It turns out she was saying "Wow, Mount Rushmore" LOL. The difficulty curve is very weird here. Your car gets faster with each upgrade but the opponents don't get faster at higher difficulties. I don't know what changes, they are probably a bit better at avoiding traffic. But this meant that the hardest difficulty was medium one and that the trophy for beating all tracks on very hard is not as hard as it looks. On very easy, I lost sight of the opponents very early. On medium, they were faster than me, so I had to rely on them crashing to pass them or to slow down, which they would do for some reason once I crashed. But then on very hard, my car was faster again, so it was much easier than in medium. And once you unlock the last upgrade your car is even way faster than before making the trophy of beating the game on very hard without losing not hard at all. I got it on my third try playing a fully upgraded car. So, don't get scared about the difficulty of this game once you reach medium difficulty and you see the cars passing you because they are faster. It gets a lot easier on very hard!
