In the official thread I will be making lists of all developers interested in working on a set for this game, and achievement ideas. If you are concerned about joining the team, go for it!

Can someone please do a set of achievements for this game...?
Quore 26 Jul 2021 15:09
THANK GOD!!! THE ACHIEVEMENTS
JxnnyV 27 Jul 2021 10:51
Aww yes I loved this game when I was a kid
endtimes 9 Sep 2021 15:49
Possibly the hardest PSx game to 100% next to Tobal 2.
Nabas6545 27 Nov 2021 11:44
I'd never played RRT4 before I started this set, and I wasn't prepared for how long the grind was to unlock all 321 cars. Final playtime was just under 100 hours in total. I'd suggest using a Negcon if you have one, it's a massive help to smooth driving in this game.
cavsfan2313 24 Mar 2022 17:55
Mastered after about 160 hours (may include long pause times). That was quite a slog. I thought it was moreso just a time consuming master, but it has very challenging moments as well with the later extra trials.
Mooseh 27 May 2022 18:50
anyone have a guide on getting all cars? The guides I am using do not match up to the cars being given for winning races. Does loading and continuing a grand prix change the prize cars?
cavsfan2313 27 May 2022 19:15
This one is really frustrating sometimes because of the inconsistencies in how cars are awarded, but the guide below is the general order in how you have to place in the grand prix:

33 22 1111

22 22 1111

21 22 1111

11 22 1111

22 11 1111

21 11 1111

11 11 1111

I often wouldn't save the grand prix after finishing a section in case I didn't get the car I expected. I would then repeat the previous section until I got the expected car and move on.

Sometimes though when I was doing all first places, it seemed I wouldn't get the best cars unless a won first by a decent margin in the races, so definitely pretty obnoxious and inconsistent.
Mooseh 27 May 2022 19:46
I am following the same order and yes I am winning every race and not getting the best car or the trophy for winning them all. I cant see me sticking with this, its a huge achievement to commit to.
Klius 28 May 2022 14:00
In order to get the expected trophy you have to place first in all races without using retries.
Instead of retrying you have to end gp and reload save which can be a pain in the ass with DRT.
Same goes for best cars, hope it helps!
Mooseh 28 May 2022 14:05
I can confirm I have tried without failing any race and still not received the correct car. Does reloading the save affect it in any way?
Klius 28 May 2022 15:17
Mmm i know there's some weirdness with DRT+lizard on how to unlock some of the cars https://retroachievements.org/viewtopic.php?t=5634&o=30.

Reloading should not count as I attained the druaga trophy by reloading a ton.

Maybe there's something weird with the game that i have not noticed^^"
If it helps i spread my saves so i can go back a round in case i mess up.
Mooseh 28 May 2022 15:24
Thanks
newyokohama 6 Jun 2022 20:23
Thanks for this one, did it 20 years ago, can I get all 320 cars again??

MariusRetro 12 Aug 2022 12:57
Oh boy. Thought I about mastering this game, but 100 - 160 hours is a tad too long for me. Still a fun game.
