| Rumors from Japanese sources say that a new version of the driver is on test for a AOU'08 launch. The game includes two new courses and new cards. Will try and get more detail before the end of the year.

|two new courses...nice!!|

2 NEW COURSES?
|Posted by: J2.0 Dec 21 2007, 08:01 AM|
|If this is true, I hope they bring back Shomaru.|
|Posted by: editor Dec 21 2007, 08:04 AM|
|The quote from the source says it is a software update - that the game has new courses and cars and will be on full test end-of-the-Month, aiming for 2008 (AOU'08) show appearance. This source is very good and is why I have posted it now rather than wait till 2009, but the exact number of new tracks and cars is an issue - I have heard one source say more than two, but again too early for confirmation.|

NEW CARDS? NO WAY!!!
|Posted by: xyeohts Dec 21 2007, 08:12 AM|

| i think they gonna make ID4 the last arcade game....
By 2009, i believe ID will have been finished =(
Most likely, the new cars will be the ones in the future release of the manga..
Plus, MRS, Supra and NSX

|new courses and new card?well...new courses is ok for me...but new cards??does that mean we had to buy a new card again?hope will hav some new cars added on and new opponent....getting bored wif Iggy (Itsuki)..|
|Posted by: DamienWolf Dec 21 2007, 08:19 AM|
I do hope you mean new CARS. I'd hate it if I have to get new CARDS.
|Posted by: n3muru_zha1 Dec 21 2007, 08:21 AM|
|one more question....if they were to launch it in japan in 2008...then how long to take the machine to reach Malaysia and other country?|
|Posted by: editor Dec 21 2007, 08:30 AM|
| Sorry my typo (all thumbs today) yes CARS not CARDS - though I know the cards have been hacked I think Sega dealt with than in the ID4 v1.1 update (that was the release version in the UK)?
On how quick - the game has not been as popular internationally as first hoped. I saw numbers that had MT3 doing better revenue numbers - for operators with ID4 it would be a quick LindBergh.1.1 update. I asked about it being at ATEI'08 but no answer.
|Posted by: DamienWolf Dec 21 2007, 08:34 AM|
Editor, if you can find a way to suggest the aura levels and ranks for the international version, that would boost more popularity for the game. Even that alone for just now.
|Posted by: editor Dec 21 2007, 08:38 AM|
|Why not get the forum to send the comments to the ID4 ranking site at SOJ - they always like suggestions. The R&D team will be at AOU, but I am sure they would reply to forum member suggestions. I have zero influence as I only write in the scene.|
|Posted by: DamienWolf Dec 21 2007, 08:42 AM|
PM to me how to do it, I'll do it first thing tomorrow.
|Posted by: Phantom_R32 Dec 21 2007, 08:50 AM|
|If they bring Shomaru, Happogahara and tune down the driftyness... I'll play this game.|
|Posted by: echizenryoma Dec 21 2007, 09:01 AM|
| Hw do u comment?
Could u tell us hw to give comments?=)
I believe PM'ing pple who are reallie interested is better=)
|Posted by: Kenji Dec 21 2007, 09:13 AM|
Not only you, but the whole IDAS4 community will HATE it too if the card is changed.
Luckilly it's NEW cars...
So, any news about what car they gonna put apart from NSX, Supra and 350Z?
|Posted by: kyochan19792002 Dec 21 2007, 09:17 AM|
|Wow, looks like really good news on the new version of Initial D Hmmm... in that case, there may be a need to transfer data from old cards to new cards because of the new courses|
|Posted by: Kenji Dec 21 2007, 09:21 AM|
| Cards only holds personal data such as particulars of the driver (avatar) and the car[s] an it's respective tunings.
Maps are stored in the machine hard disk itself and there's no need for a card transfer. We'll have to change card ONLY IF there is a card system/structure revamp.
|Posted by: n3muru_zha1 Dec 21 2007, 09:44 AM|
|well...if we really add new courses...thats mean they need to add 2 more slots in the ID4 card....which mean we need to get a new card anyway...correct?|
|Posted by: Weezy Dec 21 2007, 11:23 AM|
He said the Cards was a typo, it's Cars.
|Posted by: brian_infinispirit Dec 21 2007, 11:58 AM|
| i really hope that's a typo error, otherwise i'll just observe IDv4.1 from afar if new cards would have to be made...
it would be better if these would happen to IDv4.1 -- it's basically my ID5 wish list...
--the return of the "lost courses" from IDv3 and ID special stage (at least tsuchisaka is fine for me)
--the return of the "lost characters" (at least tomo and the 2 evo punks)
--battle level/aura system
--no more godly AE86 trueno
game physics can stay as is (in other words PC, in-in-out, and the like can stay), otherwise it'd be a huge flop...
|Posted by: holden Dec 22 2007, 12:00 PM|
|don't worry...he did corrected himself by saying its a typo|
|Posted by: Fuzz Dec 22 2007, 01:54 PM|
|I think what he was trying to point out was that on the current cards there are only 6 courses that each time 1 is cleared it would be crossed off, if there was 2 new courses, how would they put that on the cards? unless they disregard the current cards and only future card renewals would also have the new courses included aswell.|
|Posted by: Cowman715 Dec 22 2007, 02:14 PM|
| I swear if Momiji is in 4.1 I will shit myself.
However, after looking at an SS video and remembering what the course was like, I don't think it would go well with V4 physics, just for the simple fact that there aren't enough sharp turns. For V4 it's almost like Myogi. I guess I wouldn't mind another Myogi. But, if it is in this, the Miata may get it's first course to call it's own haha.
|Posted by: BDDEE@ Dec 22 2007, 06:27 PM|
err 4.1 .. im guessing this means 1.5 patch isnt coming out?
i doubt PC will be in this... seeing as in the 1.5 test it was gone
|Posted by: Cowman715 Dec 22 2007, 07:14 PM|
|Yes that may be all true, but I'm sure the basic In-In-Out will be the same. Wouldn't you have to develop an entirely new game engine to change that? All they're doing now is fixing problems within the engine.|
|Posted by: BDDEE@ Dec 22 2007, 08:03 PM|
yea the line probably wont change, with the PC thing just think about this
sega chucked in the understeer penalty for those who dont slow down enough before the corner ie dont brake... so PC at the end of the corner cancels out that penalty, when PC is gone you may still get the understeer if you dont brake before the corner, so if you brake before the corner properly like v3 you wont get the understeer ie no penalty
so maybe we will have a good use of the brake again?!?!?!?!
|Posted by: Odie Dec 22 2007, 08:14 PM|
|Looking at the newest Ver. 1.5Kai rankings, it does seem much slower. Akina is only 2'59"8 and it's the only 59 for now.|
|Posted by: BDDEE@ Dec 22 2007, 08:20 PM|
|wasnt original v4 like that the first day out|
|Posted by: LancE.Ryousuke Dec 22 2007, 08:30 PM|
a possible way would be that you could transfer data from the IDAS4 now to the next version that is now in development ..
|Posted by: nothingtohide Dec 22 2007, 08:30 PM|
| I hope for sega's sake and ours, that this will not fail.
I gave up on v4 not long ago, still been playing the v3 though.
|Posted by: toookoooldrew118 Dec 22 2007, 10:28 PM|
|cool does anyone know what the new courses are? and when u mean new cards, new how?|
|Posted by: Excel Dec 24 2007, 09:59 PM|
| From my limited knowledge of V4 - If they ditch PC, that means you can still do the full gas in-in-out lines, but you will be hit by a severe penalty. Could that possibly mean you will have to use the brake, and that the game will be back to its senses!?
And about the new courses - they could always just add them to TA/battle mode only, so they wouldn't have to change the card layout/LOTS.
|Posted by: BDDEE@ Dec 24 2007, 10:35 PM|
haha excel thats pratically what i said before
thats what im thinking will happen...
|Posted by: crow Dec 25 2007, 04:13 AM|
sir can you kindly put the link of the rankings here, tnx
|Posted by: BDDEE@ Dec 25 2007, 05:14 AM|
|Posted by: crow Dec 26 2007, 01:15 PM|
| tnx BDDEE@! ^__^ V
well isnt this good news for us?
is the ranking still the same? do you still have to beat your own personal record in order to place times??
|Posted by: Phoenix_Cypher_K1 Dec 26 2007, 09:24 PM|
| I thought their IR times are placed automatically on IR once they've beaten it since their machines are hooked up online...
Or if you meant machine records...that I don't know.
|Posted by: BDDEE@ Dec 26 2007, 10:05 PM|
thats what happens
but with 1.5 its still in testing so those times are from the test machines
i dno if there hooked up online tho so they might be posted by the user
but serously, is this 4.1 just bullshit since its proven 1.5 is coming out...or is 4.1 something theyll be working on for the next year or so? or IS 4.1 the 1.5 patch
|Posted by: Gunma's 34 Dec 26 2007, 10:36 PM|
| Whoa! New courses!? New cars!? Awesome! Too bad it'll be at around 2009 for it's it'l release... My team might be disbanded by then...
New cars... hmm...... I wonder.... which of these cars below have I listed will appear on the new version...
Honda Integra type R DC5 (Acura RSX type S)
Honda Civic CR-X 91'
Honda Prelude type SH
Mazda Demio GLX (I know! It looks so wrong to see this race... a 4-door compact car)
Mitsubishi GTO twinturbo MR
Nissan S14 Silvia K's AERO (RETURN THE GLORY!)
Mitsubishi FTO GPX
BMW M3 (I know.... you'll say WTF!?)
about the courses, i don't care. as long as I can finish it. Please... no Shomaru! I know beforehand I won't make it through the course no matter what car I choose. No offense, Gino... este Khorne coz I know you love that course and regret losing that course in IDAS4.
|Posted by: BDDEE@ Dec 26 2007, 11:07 PM|
half those cars arnt even related to initiald, from the manga or anime
theyd never put them in...
|Posted by: Odie Dec 27 2007, 12:46 AM|
| ...especially a BMW XD
You might as well hope for a Mini Cooper.
|Posted by: n3muru_zha1 Dec 27 2007, 03:45 AM|
| well...its makes me confusing after seeing so many post...i jus had to ask a few questions to make myself clear
1:does PC works in 1.5?
2:does 4.1 or 1.5 really exist now?when will it reach to our coast or other country?
3:is new cards needed?
4:does they hav new LOTS for the new courses?
the car and the courses are not much to my concern....but i do hope that they got all the courses and some new cars....UNRELATED cars for Id in the next version of ID would be nice...
|Posted by: editor Dec 29 2007, 05:08 AM|
|Just wondered if any of the Forum members will be at the London Arcade Show at the end of January? ID4 will be there, not sure if 4.1 will be however.|
|Posted by: BDDEE@ Dec 29 2007, 07:32 AM|
as iv said
PC doesnt work in 1.5
and 1.5 is still in testing, i read somewhere it set for release in february i think it was odies post somewhere ...however the IR is up for it
thats all i know
|Posted by: editor Dec 30 2007, 08:45 AM|
|Posted by: KTX Dec 31 2007, 01:36 PM|
From what I can make out here, it says there will be....
3 new cars
new paint colors
different game physics??? (oh s***)
|Posted by: BDDEE@ Dec 31 2007, 05:45 PM|
the new cars is on japanese version
cuz obviously we already have the rx8 miata and altezza
|Posted by: Weezy Dec 31 2007, 05:51 PM|
Lol, is that a good or bad s***?
|Posted by: KTX Jan 4 2008, 03:24 PM|
Well, I have already gotten used to the physics of the game so far. It would suck for me if they changed them because then it's like starting all over again. However, theres a 50/50 chance that the game physics could improve(well for me anyways) in a positive way; such as less speed loss in corners, faster acceleration, less of a penalty during wall hits and corners, stuff like that. It would make the game easier, but thats what takes the challenge out of it. So then again new physics MIGHT be a fun thing to adapt to.
|Posted by: crow Jan 10 2008, 08:19 AM|
| any news on what new courses will be added / modified, because for sure we are nt going to get the new cars because new cars would only be ALTEZZA, MIATA, and the RX-8 for jap machines dont have them,
also are we going to get auras with the new patch?
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Oct 2 2008, 11:54 AM|
|cool thing about colors. there was a pic of an orange ae86 . hopefully every car can be every color. you can put stickers on cars now too?! i hope the aura system gets changed too. i think that is is kind of lame that the only colors you can get are yellow, green, blue, and rainbow|
