no idea..maybe you are right. It'll affect the turbo..but I don't get why they would make it like that. Why can't they make it like the AE86 where you can get a choice of N/A, turbo, supercharger...iono

but it doesn't matter if you live in Asian (exclude China) or North America, you are in the same region as Japan (I think Europe too)

Hey guys, how are you? biggrin.gif

I'm a new member of the forum and I've been "trying" to play Initial D since I moved to Canada and found an arcade machine on metrotown (don't know if someone here is from vancouver, but yeah).
I said "trying" because either on the arcade version and on the PS3 version I'm having a couple of problems improving my skills.
I feel that I got to a point where I really need to ask someone that plays well how to improve, because something I'm doing in the game is wrong XD

So basically my question is, probably one that every newbie does, how can I improve? How do you guys make turns so that you don't lose speed and so on.
I've seen a couple of videos and sometimes I see people shifting down two gears at once, but when I try I lose to much speed and sometime it isn't worth. I've read people saying to use AND don't use breaks, just control your car based on shifts and so on :|
What I've been doing is, getting closer to a hairpin I do a hard turn and shift down on gear and then getting past the middle of the hairpin I shift up the gear, but sometimes I slide too much :|

Well, what you guys do to improve?

Thank you smile.gif

Hi! Welcome to the forums!

These tips will hold for Extreme Stage and IDAS 4 1.5:

With exception to Lake Akina, All courses require a bit of braking before you enter certain turns. How hard/long depends on the turn. If you fail to do so, the game punishes you by stalling your acceleration and making you car slide and lose traction.

If you're not using the brakes, you'll probably notice that at the start of the race your car handles and accelerates quite well, and then as you enter certain turns you suddenly lose control of the car. To prevent this from happening, hit the brakes before entering such turns. Usually a quick tap should suffice, after which you can floor the accelerator again. If you find that it's still happening after tapping the brakes, then on subsequent runs you should try braking a bit earlier, a bit longer, or both.

(Yes I know, the game physics suck)

General tips for improving:

1. Figure out and memorize which turns you need to brake for, and for how long.
2. Use an in-in-out racing line. Generally you should try to take the shortest path possible from the start of the race to the finish so as to minimize the distance you need to travel. There are times when you might need to take turns with an out-in-out line to get a better exit speed, but you should note that most turns in ID:ES can be taken just as fast with an in-in-out line.
3. When in doubt, watch time attack replays to help you figure out what the pros are doing. (Where they're braking, what line they're using, etc.)
4. Practice. A lot.

getting good at any arcade driving games require practice and muscle memories to become naturally fast

IMO playing Extreme Stage only helps your foot works for IDAS4 1.5
In terms of gaining the muscle memories in steering, you have to play in the arcade which supports more than 90 degree turn opposing to playing with any supported wheels at home

and if you're playing with a controller, you're at most getting familiar with the courses and lines to take...muscle memory skill wise...it's apples and oranges
