|Yay. A dedicated thread for us at Round 1. I'll be back in socal tomorrow, not sure if I'll head over there at round 1 tomorrow night though. I wonder if I can break any of my previous times after not playing for a bit|
|Posted by: lightk Jun 19 2011, 06:26 PM|
| Some general information on the new version:
1. Game is divided into 3 modes now
Story Mode, Another Story Mode, Legend Mode
Last Match is against Ry FC3S on Akagi DH (Note: Ry is faster than ever on here especially on the last right hand turn similar to the anime when he pass Evo3)
Another Story Mode:
Last Match is against Tak Trueno on Tsubaki DH (Note:Tak is constantly behind you and headlights are turn off at certain points of the track)
Battle random CPU against a track of your choice.
(Note: difficulties increase as you progresses through legend mode)
Battles can be from 1-4 players.
(tag team battles are very fun and different attack mode from doing instore battles)
3. Car Tuning:
Buy Parts from Spec1-Spec 5
Fastest way to tune is through story mode or tag team battles.
4. Avatar Picture:
Same system as the previous version.
5. Secret Car:
FT-86 unlockable at 1000 mileage.
6. Physics and comparison between version 4, 5, and 6:
Physics seem to be a combination of version 3 and 4.
Version 6 seem to be more fun than 4 and 5 but need some more time to tell.
US still can't enter record time to compare to the rest of the world.

| Fastest way to full tune is story mode, cheapest way to full tune and more bang for buck for playtime is tag battles
Anyone got the FT-86 yet?
|Posted by: lightk Jun 19 2011, 06:39 PM|
| Just over halfway there so far. Been playing it only for a week. Still need another 400m before I can get that.
Thanks for clarifying it Agent!

Machines are constantly crowded with people right now. I manage to get myself a card before it runs out.
|Posted by: Agent556 Jun 19 2011, 07:27 PM|
| Btw, if you leave "accept challengers" on for 1 on 1 battle races, you get 1 point for character roulette wheel if you finish a race with accept challengers on without anyone racing you.
And yeah, if i see someone with accept challengers, i want to jump in on it, haha....
PS. cmon, i know a number of you guys are lurking around here (you know who you are). make an account already and join the fun. haha.
|Posted by: lightk Jun 19 2011, 10:06 PM|
| Avatar seems to have more part changes in this version as well. And same here with challenges. Hard to walk away when 3 machines have accept challenges since tag team battles always make the crowd bigger.
One thing to note in battles is that ramming if often seen in tag team battles. I been seeing a lot of ramming lately from beginning to end since winning is determine by total points not by finishing the race first.
Below is an example of a tag team match.

Happo seems much harder to master than the previous version too. Knowing when and when not to drift is crucial in this game.

| haven't really played since 3 still getting used to all the courses...
|Posted by: lightk Jun 20 2011, 07:23 AM|
Hey mattx! That mean you got a lot of catching up to do then since tsukuba, nagao, tsubaki, and true usui have all came out since then. I think the good thing is that the physics here resemble more of 3 and 4 so you could have skip 5 since its completely different.
|Posted by: kidosuka Jun 20 2011, 10:02 AM|
|What's up Light! You dissapear for a while there. Version 5 have slow down a bit recently. So how is version 6? We should race again in version 5 sometime.|
|Posted by: lightk Jun 20 2011, 02:43 PM|
| Hey! Version 6 is fun so far. Graphic got a bit better but not by much. Physics is a major change here. Even though the game is new, a lot of people have already started to battle.

|Posted by: lightk Jun 20 2011, 06:22 PM|
Hey Seigo! How are you and Gary? Got any faster lately. Still playing initial d and what's this about a small tournament going on. Hope to race you guys again sometime in the future.
|Posted by: initiald34 Jun 20 2011, 08:09 PM|
|Me and Gary were at CV golfland last saturday and the owner guy said he is gonna stop saturday morning mania cuz nobody goes lol. We havent played in months but he had some coupons so we used them lol. And havent got any faster cuz we havent been playing lol. We will probably see you again once golfland gets ID6 and eric and us will come back maybe.|
|Posted by: lightk Jun 21 2011, 09:37 AM|
| Hope all golfland will keep their mania otherwise this game will be too expensive.
Akina Snow just came out.
It's pretty cool first glance but wonder how slippery it is.
|Posted by: sizzle Jun 21 2011, 10:06 AM|
|Does this mean they bringing back the Celica? Bring back old memories.|

| Thanks for posting it Agent! I wanted to see the list as well. By the way what is your card name? I seen Leon, saito, brando, but not sure if I seen some of the name here.
Sizzle: From what I know, the celica is not back yet and US machines doesn't have snow yet. We will have to waiit and see.
|Posted by: kidosuka Jun 23 2011, 12:04 AM|
|Will the bay area have tag battle ranking or not? Wondering how we do with 2 machines only.|
|Posted by: Agent556 Jun 23 2011, 12:45 AM|
| I'm not sure if you guys will have in store tag battle with only two machines. You should be able to do a tag battle vs cpu though...
Add: 10:55 PM, 6/23/11
Woops, 6 more days from this edit until records are set in the monthly tag records. The machines seem like theyre on japan time, so yeah. We going to see tag battles tomorrow?
|Posted by: matrixmatt Jun 24 2011, 12:56 PM|
|yes one more week|
|Posted by: kidosuka Jun 24 2011, 01:30 PM|
|Vendor said golfland hasn't reply yet so we still waiting to see what happen. Have to stick with version 5 for now until then.|
|Posted by: thatoldf33ling Jun 25 2011, 02:59 AM|
|whats going on guys, just came by to say hey, and shoutout's to my round 1 players. rudy, mattx, leon, saito, turtl3j, fujids, comet, aly, etc.. anyways, if anyones around and would like to single battle, my accepts always on just look for jed-ds|
|Posted by: Agent556 Jun 25 2011, 11:20 AM|
| Alright, I think this is the first D6 video from round 1.
Happo OB, boost off. damn that was a fun race
Let's get more races recorded, or time attacks or something!
|Posted by: thatoldf33ling Jun 28 2011, 08:48 PM|
i second that, lets get more battles going guys!
|Posted by: turtl3j Jun 29 2011, 12:30 AM|
|i wish android had a custom made tri-pod for my phone, it would definitely make the shot more focused rather than my horrible recording skills. but it was seriously a heart-wrenching battle|
|Posted by: Agent556 Jun 29 2011, 12:33 AM|
|seeing that time on akina, my next race has to be against fuji on akina....|
|Posted by: thatoldf33ling Jun 29 2011, 12:42 AM|
it'll probably be the most epic battle in round 1 for id6, for a while lol
|Posted by: sizzle Jun 29 2011, 12:46 AM|
|This game look great but don't know when we get it up here.|
|Posted by: AXEL* Jun 29 2011, 11:53 PM|
not a guarantee, but the gls MAY, and MAY is the key word here, have within next 3-5 months, possibly as early as september. my boss has info and has been in contact with distributor and is working to get a deal hammered out
|Posted by: Agent556 Jun 29 2011, 11:58 PM|
| try to get the japanese version so i can use my tuned card over there when im in norcal,
I guess I can start my export card though if you guys get the EXP version.
bonus points if you get japanese machines ONLINE. theres a few edits i want to apply on my card haha
|Posted by: -VIRUS- Jun 30 2011, 08:11 AM|
|im going to LA around mid august. going to be hitting up round 1. if anyone wants to meet me up there ill be there mid august.|
|Posted by: sizzle Jun 30 2011, 08:35 AM|
|Since golfland may have by september, we can all look to it soon. Maybe it be even sooner than we think. That is good news.|
|Posted by: SonicSP Jun 30 2011, 10:05 AM|
|Anybody knows any ID6 machine locations in Wisconsin, if any?|
|Posted by: AXEL* Jul 1 2011, 12:21 AM|
they will never have it online. 1. we arent getting new machines, and 2. nobody outside of asia is able to get it online due to japanese servers and ip addresses
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 1 2011, 01:07 AM|
| I was sure that the D5 EXP machines had internet, or the D6 EXP upgrade kits would have an ethernet port in there somewhere, especially with how the D6 machines connect together.
But yeah, too bad the machines cant hold an ip address due to lack of a japanese server :-\
Good luck to the golflands on getting D6, hopefully the upgrade kit deals go through
|Posted by: lightk Jul 3 2011, 01:38 PM|
| Acomplishment on Initial D this weekend:

|Posted by: initiald34 Jul 3 2011, 01:40 PM|
|Do you live down there now or something?|
|Posted by: lightk Jul 3 2011, 01:50 PM|
I would like to live down there but I'm am still living in norcal right now.
Too bad huh. It be cool if I get more chances to play the game. I would like to compete with Leon, Rudy, and fujidos down there if given the chance. But I met a lot of racers down there so it was a cool visit. Hope norcal will get the game eventually then I could compete with the entire state and get more plays.
I drop by sunnyvale the other day and saw Subb and XJ play version 5. Do you play it every now and then? We should race again sometime.
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 3 2011, 01:52 PM|
| wtf! why is everyone there when im not there T__T
also yeah, it seems the tofu delivery armada is starting to show up in round 1, haha...
Also, you should race Aly on happo and nagao, haha..
|Posted by: lightk Jul 3 2011, 02:00 PM|
| Since happo was one of his favorite track, I did see him play it. Quite fast there but too bad I didn't get a chance to race him yet. I didn't get a chance to race a lot of players so I will race all of them one of these days.
I also notice that in tag battle it seem boost is automatically on and no way to turn it off. So the races are always neck to neck unless there is a BIG gap in skills.
Maybe I see you in the future Rudy. I gotta race you on akina sometime.
Take Care Socal players!
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 3 2011, 02:03 PM|
|Yeah, makes tag battles more fun and require a different set of tactics to ensure that you get at least a silver and not get dragged into missing the A that the opponent nabbed from you.|
|Posted by: lightk Jul 3 2011, 02:09 PM|
| Hmm, maybe a team should be form to start setting accomplishment at every place that has version 6 in the US or the entire Cal at least. Got to think about that.
This game is expensive since a dollar every play and no deals.
Current spending on version 6: $150
Travel fees: $300
Just starting and money is flowing out too much. Will take a break till Fall.
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 3 2011, 02:14 PM|
|Leon's gonna make me represent Project Legacy up in norcal when D6 comes out up there... :-\ lol|
|Posted by: lightk Jul 3 2011, 02:24 PM|
| Good to hear you guys will be visiting this place sometime. We have at least a 6 month late start up here but there should be some players to compete with you guys or if worse come first, I make the entire appearance myself..hihi
By the way, if norcal get the EXP version, socal cards are useless up here then it be even out.
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 3 2011, 02:26 PM|
|Well if the golflands get the export upgrade kits, which i expect since their machines are export i think, (the golfland down in anaheim has EXP 2.0) then i'll have to start from my level 1 export card. the average time difference between a stock car and a fully tuned car is about 16 seconds. lol|
|Posted by: lightk Jul 3 2011, 02:32 PM|
|True to that. The difference is too much between stock and full tune. I will get access to EXP card soon so I can play on both machines then. Oh yeah, I still haven't visit anaheim golfland yet. I need to check out that place as well once it has the new version.|
|Posted by: sizzle Jul 3 2011, 03:56 PM|
|If golfland does get it, which golfland will get it first or will all gland have it at the same time?|
|Posted by: initiald34 Jul 3 2011, 06:42 PM|
I go to CV golfland occasionally with eric or gary but nobody really plays lol.
|Posted by: RXFUSION Jul 3 2011, 09:32 PM|
only You play! LOL
|Posted by: initiald34 Jul 3 2011, 10:09 PM|
|lol cuz there's nothing better to do!|
|Posted by: lightk Jul 3 2011, 10:21 PM|
| Good to see people continue to play the game. Norcal need to have more great players to compete when socal racers come up here in the fall.
I wanted to upload tsubaki tag team video but the file is corrupted. I will upload another one of my when I record again someday.
I look at the happo vid again and know ALY is fast on happo ob but I haven't try there yet. I took 1st on myogi downhill and nagao downhill time ranking 1st try but the time that will give me a lot of trouble down there will be akina. Need to play a lot more to even compete there.
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 3 2011, 10:29 PM|
|welp, looks like im going tomorrow even though i shouldnt, lol|
|Posted by: kidosuka Jul 3 2011, 11:08 PM|
|Seem Light is already making headlines in socal already. If golfland can get it sooner than september, that would be so much better. Lets cross our fingers for it then.|
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 3 2011, 11:25 PM|
| a little off topic, the anaheim golfland D5 machines have the shifter on the RIGHT side of the driver. is it like that at all of the golflands or is it just anaheim?
edit: nevermind, question was answered, thanks axel!
update: Your turn, light
|Posted by: lightk Jul 5 2011, 08:34 AM|
Sorry bout late reply, busy with fireworks yesterday and now lazy back to work.
Hope you found the answer but yeah, shifter on left at round 1 takes adjusting.
Hmm, wondering what car I be tuning next? Either an FC or an NSX maybe. By the way its interesting to note that at round 1, you don't need to enter the code or password to get the FT86 whereas you would have to on an EXP machine I heard.
As for the game so far, one of the trouble I'm still having is turning at high speed on akina. You would know this Rudy since you able to make that turn at high speed? Understeer is still the problem right now I think for most people playing.
|Posted by: turtl3j Jul 5 2011, 08:52 AM|
|^ my problem is quite the opposite, i tend to fish-tail a lot lol. ULTRA SUPER LATE BREAKING! sad face because i don't have the image from the anime hahaha|
|Posted by: Varcion Jul 5 2011, 12:02 PM|
| Just wondering, is it just me or does the guy named "GKT" gets mad everytime he plays? It just seems like he taking it out on the game everytime he start losing to an "Awakened" AI.
P.S.: Just a reminder, no shame in losing to an "Awakened" AI, 1 mistake and its instant Game Over.(unless ur running around WR times)
|Posted by: thatoldf33ling Jul 5 2011, 01:47 PM|
is this a new player? i haven't been playing for a week now
|Posted by: lightk Jul 5 2011, 02:18 PM|
GKT? I haven't seen him yet either. I think its better that I don't see those type of players. Awakened matches are certainly interesting though. I think I lost 2 matches somewhere along story mode. One on akagi to Ry and one on tsubaki to Tak but not sure if it was awakened.
Anybody here beat the game without losing a single match?
|Posted by: sizzle Jul 5 2011, 03:07 PM|
|What is awakened that you guys are mentioning about? What is that?|
|Posted by: turtl3j Jul 5 2011, 03:10 PM|
When Rudy and I saw him the other day, he looked pretty mad in general; even when he has a lead on an opponent, he still looks pretty pissed. I remember when his friend left the challenge on, he accidentally accepted, got super mad, and just left the cab till the game was over. I think it's best to avoid those type of people.
|Posted by: DARKKNIGHT321 Jul 5 2011, 04:09 PM|
|Remind me of this other guy name Long who was always curse and beat the machine up every time he lost or mess up. Man, those were some scary moments.|
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 5 2011, 04:47 PM|
|I'm more worried about the other guy who stomps the pedals. It isn't so much that he looks pissed, and double accel is a valid drift technique, but i just hope the machine lasts. not gonna name names just because, but you know what i mean.|
|Posted by: Varcion Jul 5 2011, 06:03 PM|
Ok, after u complete the "Original" and "Another" story modes, a 3rd option, "Legend" comes out. When you play Legend, at random times(theres probably a pattern), ur opponent will appear with a rainbow aura at the starting line(and this happens with a lot of the characters, not just the 1s that already comes with aura, I've got Kenta a couple of times) and theres gonna be 2 Kanjis written on top of the opponent's name. That's when ur racing an Awakened AI. In these races, even small mistakes or taking a turn too slow will mean him being on ur tail or passing u. Make a big mistake, and he'll instantly overtake(if hes within 50-60M) and u'll probably be -100 before u recover to regular speeds. Being in "Legend" mode where the AI is already beefed-up significantly, recovering from -100M is not very likely.
|Posted by: sizzle Jul 5 2011, 06:31 PM|
|Gameplay seem different from V5. Also noticing that everybody in the US is beginning to join the same room now. Awesome!|
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 6 2011, 12:36 AM|
| Noticed a sudden surge in people making new cards, i see a bunch of new names again.
alright, who's who haha...
|Posted by: turtl3j Jul 6 2011, 09:20 AM|
| Sugoi sou desu ne!?
i'm excited that more players are taking interest in id6. i even saw a person using an s14 yesterday, so i'm definitely ecstatic to see the variety of players throughout the next couple of days.
|Posted by: matrixmatt Jul 6 2011, 10:53 AM|
|it's looking like the initial d series always gets really popular again every 3rd arcade release lol|
|Posted by: Varcion Jul 6 2011, 12:55 PM|
Takes them 3 times to get it right on each platform. So look forward to Ver.9, when they actually have the car for Sidewinder's downhiller in the game.
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 6 2011, 01:15 PM|
|oh yay, another 86. lol|
|Posted by: sizzle Jul 6 2011, 01:33 PM|
|Didn't think about that but this is the 3rd version of the arcade game. Maybe it will be better than the previous 2 afterall.|
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 6 2011, 01:54 PM|
Forgot to address this, we already entered the code so it 'updated' the version from 1.1 to 1.1+A which has the FT-86 in the menu
still waiting on the +B code to be released so we can get some akina snow action
|Posted by: lightk Jul 6 2011, 02:15 PM|
Wow! I didn't think akina snow would be accessable without online but if so, it look like we may have the complete version.
The trueno has been out running other cars in time that I hoping to see other cars climb up eventually.
Also did anybody try to transfer their version 5 card over? I want to try it when golfland get it since it will save me 10 levels, buying the cars, and car parts over. Points is not easy to earn in this version.
|Posted by: kidosuka Jul 6 2011, 04:06 PM|
|It be nice to see 4WD cars on top again like version 3.|
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 6 2011, 06:27 PM|
|version 5 JP should work; version 5 EXP, you're probably gonna have to wait for golfland to get the D6 EXP upgrade kits|
|Posted by: sizzle Jul 8 2011, 11:32 PM|
|Anybody going to golfland mania tomorrow?|
|Posted by: lightk Jul 12 2011, 04:53 PM|
| New update to Initial D:
New parts added to the game
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 12 2011, 05:26 PM|
| hm, seems like akina snow was a real patch so no code for it. feels bad man :<
that and we dont get those character parts without internet
feels megabad man
|Posted by: lightk Jul 13 2011, 10:18 PM|
| I guess we will have to wait for golfland then to play akina snow.
Another observation is that the game now has change from low speed cornering to high speed cornering. I wonder how difficult it would be to pass an opponent in a race since it was easier to pass your opponent in the old version due to low speed cornering.
An example would be on akina lake: There are only 2 laps and couple places where your opponent could pass on each lap but if you maintain your speed high at 180+ on the turn, the chances of your opponent passing is very minimal I think unless the opponent is suiciding diving into it and still not a good outcome I think. Off the line start advantage look exceptionally good in this game. I wonder which car has the best start up.
|Posted by: kidosuka Jul 13 2011, 11:41 PM|
Isn't there a list somewhere for start up rank? I would like to see that too.
|Posted by: lightk Jul 14 2011, 12:11 AM|
| Here is another observation from this game:
In version 5, lining was very important in getting fast times but in this game that is no longer the case. Trying to get the best line is also harder than before. I think the game has place more importance on steering like what Toshiya Joshima "God Hand" is known for.
|Posted by: kidosuka Jul 14 2011, 05:48 PM|
|Any new update on the arrival of the game? Hoping it come sooner like in summertime.|
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 16 2011, 03:54 AM|
ehh... i'd say lining still very important seeing as it's the difference between our current record of ~2'48" on tsukuba vs the world record of 2'24"
|Posted by: kidosuka Jul 17 2011, 11:42 PM|
|6 more weeks till golfland get the new game|
|Posted by: Agent556 Jul 18 2011, 02:38 PM|
eh? did they just order them or something?

the golflands may be getting IDAS6 in a few months, still unsure of the status of that.

| oh f**k, I'll look to see if someone is playing it when I'm there, but yeah hopefully someone will return it to you man. In other news, I finally know who you are on here, lol.
for those who don't know what kamei! looks like in hiragana:
|Posted by: Varcion Aug 2 2011, 11:30 AM|
I'm just posting for him. He's too lazy to post on here, lol.
Oh, and BTW, thx for the help u offered, but the *durp* found his card in my car after the entire weekend turning his house upside-down looking for it. So, thanks again for those who helped looking out for him and hopefully the incident won't repeat itself.
PS. was kinda hoping he had to restart, so that it'll be a while before he becomes a threat again on the TA.

| Any1 have any idea on when is Round1 getting the parts to fix the machines? Cuz its getting really annoying to practice or play becuz some people breaks them from constant stomping on the pedals and (recently) completely breaking the steering wheel. (It's held together with a steel bolt, FFS, how hard are you steering to break the thing) All 4 cabinets are having problems.
From Right to Left:
1st:Slow pedal response
2nd:Broken steering wheel,right turn only steers 180 degrees
3rd:occationally stuck gas pedals
4th: alignment's off, bouncy shifter
|Posted by: Agent556 Oct 26 2011, 03:28 AM|
| Round 1 cabinet updates:
From Left to Right
1st: Perfect operating condition, but lowest volume of all machines
2nd: Perfect operating condition, volume is 'medium'
3rd: Perfect operating condition except for a little axial play in the wheel, volume is the loudest of the machines
4th: Steering is aligned, accelerator potentiometer needs to be replaced

|Posted by: what? Jan 8 2012, 12:21 AM|
| So I'm bored... I hate but I love this game... Don't understand the turning system... Sometime my car turns the way I want it... Sometime it doesnt... Stupid PC tricks before a turn... Its hard to get better... but I'll keep trying cause i'm bored...
3:05 Akina downhill currently...
Well I'm not GOOD at the game but right now with my current level... its basically a 3 minute...
Once I understand the game more... I'll hope to run below a 3 on the course...
Trying FD3S btw...
|Posted by: Agent556 Jan 8 2012, 03:18 AM|
|Basically, the car will handle like crap until you hit spec 3. From there, it handles better and keeps speed better as you hit spec 4, spec 5, and then finally full spec. 3'05 is decent on Akina if you just started recently, especially with an FD.|

|Hey guys is there anyway to change an Automatic car into a Manual? My friend and I were playing on the IDAS6 machines at Round1 and my friend made a card with a S15 on it but by accident he chose automatic instead of manual.|
|Posted by: Varcion Jan 8 2012, 05:54 PM|
Yea, in the selection menu, go to your garage. After selecting the car, pick the Equipment tab (the left-most tab) and theres a selection to change the transmission. but it does require tuning points to change it. If ur friend hasnt done any tunes or still tuning in spec 1, it may be cheaper just to buy another car in the same card.

|Just a heads-up for Round 1 players. Had a bad incident happned on Saturday night with 2 players on the machines. Watch out for 2 players named "AMBER"(red Evo9) and "DKSEAN" or "PKSEAN" (Blue FD, i forgot the first letter of his name). They hog the machines and will ignore any cards lining up on top of the machines. I've tried to explain to them about the card rule after they continued for 3+ races after i've put my card up and they've responded with threats and taunts. So, just a heads-up to all other players that the rules don't apply to these 2 guys.|
|Posted by: Agent556 Jan 30 2012, 05:21 PM|
I thought you guys were being brought into tilt? Also as for the hogs, looks like I'm gonna have some fun in near future
|Posted by: SUPERDOOM Jan 30 2012, 05:24 PM|

|dude that sucks, yeah we dont let people on ours =) jk we do but nobody really plays haha only for storie mode a couple of noobs like to do that, they are cool. im glad we dont play at a golfland cuz they got some hogs over there coz its more of a public arcade as us, in davis , have like a more small private one. haha but man, that vid helps a lot. =) akagi.|
|Posted by: SUPERDOOM Jan 31 2012, 03:42 PM|
| Yeah there always seems to be the occasional A-Hole noob that ignores the general rules of the arcade. That's when we hope they put on accept challengers so we can boot em off
Glad you liked the video, Imma prolly upload a happo and nagao vid next. Ive been wanting to improve my time on both of those courses.

|Posted by: Varcion Mar 22 2012, 08:24 AM|
Damn, that sucks, we'll try to keep an eye out for ur card at Round 1, I don't think theres really anywhere else to use a JP 6AA card besides Davis.
Besides the first machine, the other 3 are still issuing cards at R1.

|Got bored of MT, so IDA6 is now my main game. So what's good fellas?|
|Posted by: SUPERDOOM Mar 29 2012, 10:03 AM|
| Always nice to see another ID6AA player, things are good down here in Socal. Hows it going up in Norcal?
I creep the MT forums so I've seen your name before on there >_<
|Posted by: Wanderer Mar 29 2012, 11:05 AM|
|Since the MT scene is pretty novice'y right now, IDA6 is where it's at. The higher ups move onto this game a while back, so I'm pretty damn nooby. Still don't understand, these guys have insane fast TA times, but they don't show up on the machines. All stock SEGA times.|
|Posted by: SUPERDOOM Mar 29 2012, 11:13 AM|
| Are you looking at the international times? The international TA Board is red, while the in store is Blue.
As long as the machines are offline the International times will always say sega.
What are some times up there? I need to see where I rank hehe.
|Posted by: Wanderer Mar 29 2012, 11:24 AM|
|So then either they don't TA at SJ Golfland, or times get reset when the machine turns off or something. The only time recorded on there is my Iro, which isn't good at all.|
|Posted by: SUPERDOOM Mar 29 2012, 11:50 AM|
| Ahh, well just to make sure you can hit the view change button while looking at the times and it will change between international and in-store times.
TBH if you want to get good, don't focus on Iro. Practice akagi it has a great mix of high speed and low speed turns. Also practice Happo, it is a great low speed course.
Don't be a one trick pony, too many of them down here. Once you Full Spec your car, go pure TA. Go every course in both directions to get an idea of what your weakest course is and work from there, aim for silver ranking in all the courses before you dedicate yourself to get better on just one course.
This will get you better prepared for battles so you won't be like "Shit, hes choosing that course!".
Here's a few side tips:
- Stick with one car for now, get used to the game in one car then once you get better you can apply what you learned to the other cars.
- Don't worry about akina snow, thats a Spec specific course for TA. You should practice that course last because you REALLY need a MILD spec car to get good times on it.
- Card level doesnt matter, ive seen plenty of 50-70 players suck real bad. So don't judge a player by the level of his card.
- Practice, Practice, Practice MT4 wont be coming out for a while so you have plenty of time to focus on ID
If you have any other questions let me know!
|Posted by: Wanderer Mar 29 2012, 11:57 AM|
|That is great advice man thanks, lvl isn't important to me really, though those wings do look pretty sweet. The reason I've been focusing on Iro was more to get a hang of the hairpins first because I have a hard time with it. And actually, Akagi is my favorite out of them all, though Nagao isn't that bad either. And would my FC be considered mild-spec?|
|Posted by: SUPERDOOM Mar 29 2012, 12:10 PM|
| Iro's hairpins are very tight and pretty much require an instant full steer and counter-steer, that cant really be applied to other courses. Yeah Akagi is a really fun course DH and UH.
To answer your last question, once you full tune your car. You'll notice in your garage that your car will have a Blue "setting" bar. That blue bar means your car is currently in Balance spec. All cars are in balance spec once they get full tuned. You can switch this setting to 3 other specs. Mild, Peak, and Drift.
As far as I know everyone stays in Balance Spec for all the TAs, except for snow. Which requires your car to be set to Mild Setting, so it wont slide as much.
You can change this setting once every 150km or so, after your car reaches full spec.
|Posted by: Wanderer Mar 29 2012, 12:27 PM|
|I see, well that is good to know. I'm not too far, okay well I'm kinda far from full spec, currently at spec 4 I think. Guess I should focus on the story more than TA for now.|
|Posted by: SUPERDOOM Mar 29 2012, 12:59 PM|
| Yeah just get to Full Spec through story mode. You'll get your wings after you beat the "Another" Arch. After that just go pure TA.
I literally went from lvl 30ish to 99 with TA.
|Posted by: Wanderer Mar 29 2012, 01:08 PM|
|Well looks like I'll have my work cut out for me. Well, I'm off, gonna take a nap.|

When the game starts showing ur status on screen after you insert your card, there should be a menu on the bottom with 4 selection in the following order from left to right:
Mode Select, Garage, Card Status, Settings
Select "Garage", pick the car you want to change, and a new set of selections comes up (left to right):
Parts, Aero Parts, Not buying(basically go to mode select)
Select "Parts"(which should be purple window), once in the parts menu, look for a list with only 2 parts in the list, which should be the transmission list(one of them should be blacked out since you are already using it) just select the other 1.
Note: changing transmission will require tuning points(it's not a lot, but i forgot the exact amount)
