More news to follow attendance of SEGA trade show July.

Posted by: Banken Jun 25 2008, 06:29 AM
WTF mate? How long has 4 actually been out?

It would be sweet if they finally gave it some GT5-esque physics so as to separate the men from the boys when it comes to real racecraft.

Posted by: editor Jun 25 2008, 06:35 AM
Agree Banken; I thought that it was strange that the 2007 release would get another sequel so soon. I know there have been problems with the IC cards in Japan, and that the players have trashed all the car profiles, but this next All.net release came as a surprise (rule of thumb, if testing now release for Feb'09).

Posted by: Nomake Wan Jun 25 2008, 06:50 AM
I didn't really pay attention, but does it say there "Wait until July 8th, then begin Location Testing?" I don't know lots of kanji so I could definitely be wrong.

Interesting news, though. Sure beats all the n00bs thinking that Initial D Arcade Stage 4 Limited is 'new'. laugh.gif

Cool news, but that image is huuuuuuuuuge.

Posted by: geokilla Jun 25 2008, 07:26 AM
Will the driving dynamics be similar to ID3 where the cars weren't as drifty as ID4? I personally don't like ID4 because of the drifting and gearing/acceleration issues and stuff.

Jeez, first WMMT3, not ID5. I need to get a job at this rate. Can't wait to try out the game.

Posted by: BOZZ Jun 25 2008, 08:14 AM
I want to know if they added back in some old courses and cars (i.e. EVO VI).

Posted by: DEX Jun 25 2008, 08:29 AM
i hope they still have the license idea that was cool and have realistic gear shift
like maximum tune no mater if it is a 4 or 5 gear the higher gear acts like nothing.. oh yeah and a clutch

そして, 八方ヶ原 コースも復活!!

It mentions the "rebirth" of the Happogahara course.

Posted by: razorsuKe Jun 25 2008, 08:40 AM
O_O man... these new versions are coming out way too quickly
It totally means there is no point in getting good because a new version is just around the corner!

Posted by: Yoshida Seiji Jun 25 2008, 08:51 AM
Wow, how long could they have been working on it? I mean seriously.

It most def. says location testing July 8th.

Posted by: J]-[UN Jun 25 2008, 09:29 AM
Hope the game actually makes sense man, i need a good racing game to get into ><

Posted by: W.A.R Jun 25 2008, 10:44 AM
People were excited that V4 came out but how many really did play the game.Half of the people did play V4 went back to V3.And when I saw the game play of V4 i was not too happy so I hope V5 will atleast make the game play better unlike the super fake drifting in V4 the cars slide way too fake.Thats what killed it for me.

Posted by: DK_2 Jun 25 2008, 10:55 AM
i hope this time the US get's ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the damn features. if this is Japanese biased again. there's no point. sleep.gif

Posted by: 207 Jun 25 2008, 11:04 AM
i'll give it a try as long as they add 3 things to id5: 1 give back all the cars they removed, 2 return the other 3 lost courses and tone down the drifting. ....maybe they should leave out the evo7 in v5, im rather enjoying the MFS evo3 :S.

Posted by: 08TTGSL Jun 25 2008, 11:07 AM
WTF!!! stage 5 already? i hoe i can transfer over my ID4 card...

Posted by: Tessou Jun 25 2008, 11:13 AM
More from the poster. Here's the large text on the top.
最速, 最強を決めろ! (translation's a bit wobbly, but it looks in the ballpark of "Choose to be the strongest and fastest")
いよいよ[??? Event]開幕 (Finally raising the curtain at *f--ked up characters*
event)

*I couldn't for the life of me find any of the 2 nasty kanji that made up the event name, but I'm guessing that it's a SEGA event of some sort.*

This is the large, legible text on the bottom half.

操縦性ー新!! (New Maneuverability!!)
新たなるバトル感覚を体感せよ! (New sensory experience in battle!)

EDIT: Added in a kanji (感, which incidentally took me forever to look up) to the second line that I forgot the first time over. Now the translation makes a hell of a lot more sense!

EDIT2: Added the top lines as well, since I'm such a nice guy. wink2.gif

Posted by: brian_infinispirit Jun 25 2008, 11:56 AM
here's my wish list for ID5...
--ID4 data can be transferred to ID5
--it's like IDv1-v3, same game, just different languages (not like ID4 which technically was two diff. games for two diff. versions)
--japanese version features are incorporated into the int'l english version as well

otherwise i might not just try it at all...

Posted by: DEX Jun 25 2008, 11:58 AM
it kinda does make sense now with the fifth stage they wanna update the story hope they dont change too much because i just got into the arcade version i'm already used to initial d series

Posted by: Hachi_Roku Jun 25 2008, 12:12 PM
Too soon. They released D4 what, a year ago? IMO, the release of 5 should be put off until AT LEAST late 2009 or even 2010...

Posted by: DK_2 Jun 25 2008, 12:16 PM
^^^^^^^^^^^^^
so what you'd rather play this(ID4) down-graded game?
and wait that long to play?

It's just an announcement. They can announce a game quite a while before it's actually released.

I believe it's just on time, considering all the griping people have the changes made in 4.

It's like all those movies the creator of Superbad made. Each were decent, but released WAY too quickly in succession, and quality was sacrificed. It's been announced, but a bit too soon to me.

Posted by: DK_2 Jun 25 2008, 01:32 PM
oh ok i get you.






i wonder if SEGA went through this forum to read the internationak wants......

Posted by: Jerry Liu Jun 25 2008, 01:38 PM
They should add features that was from the previous stages along with some new ones, but also keep the current ones, of course.
IE: Return of Bunta's Challenge. Return of Happogahara, Tsuchisaka, and Shomaru. Along with some new courses. Keep Tsukuba, of course. I hate Irohazaka, so I don't care about that one, to be honest.

Posted by: editor Jun 25 2008, 02:04 PM
The game is on test for appearance next month at the SEGA Private Show to trade.

The game would not be hitting the arcades till 2009.

I know that SEGA AM team look at the forums, but who knows what they will put in next.

There is a new console release soon, so this is to keep the franchise rolling.

The card problem, and complaints on courses has forced their hand to release... also news of a new version of Max Tune.

o.0 you know they can make all the great features and all they want but i have some feeling in the end all the international version is gonna get is just change of game physics(AGAIN) and just the addition of a happogahara map......

Then again this is a good time for sega to correct their previous mistakes -.-

Posted by: DK_2 Jun 25 2008, 02:36 PM
@Jerry
i did the same thing. laugh2.gif
i swear i went "OMG!! wooo!!!"
on my screen when i read it.
great now i wanna play. LOL.

@jiahao
true i think that too.
but that's what i'm saying.

but oh well, we might get surprised at what SEGA does.

i would love to drive a JZA80 or JZA70.
maybe DC5. biggrin.gif
twitchykun might play if they had that. LOL.

Posted by: nivek Jun 25 2008, 04:53 PM
I hope they bring back shomaru and the bunta challenge! (and better game physics) even now I'm still stuck with my car in ID3. pinch2.gif and haven't played ID4 that much because there aren't any near ID4 machines here yet and I didn't like it as much as ID3.

I hope this becomes as good or better than version 3

Posted by: twitchykun Jun 25 2008, 05:07 PM
Hey Sega, how about sending us a f**king machine in San Diego?

Posted by: Banken Jun 25 2008, 05:15 PM
Apparently they're doing limited location testing until the 5th of next month.

Posted by: Odie Jun 25 2008, 05:46 PM
It's Sega's final way to waving goodbye to their hard earned cash I guess. I can predict that ID5 will be the ultimate money losing arcade game ever.

Doesn't matter how good they make it. The main thing is that the Japanese and the rest of the world are separated in terms of ranking and also online/offline mode. Without rectifying that mess, no one will care even if the physics goes back to Version 3 or even if the Japanese suck again with their TA's.

if they fix everything though it would be an awesome game. the only way i can see this happening is a network for each region because one global online network is a bit much for an arcade game...

they can make american happy by giving them a mustang LOL!

Posted by: TigerZai Jun 25 2008, 06:57 PM
OOHhh... nooo.. why so fast IDAS5 ??? stupiak sega.. i still playing IDAS4 hard and hot now .. T_T please dont so fast out lar IDAS5 ... atleast 1 year give me sometime T_T ... i throw alot money on IDAS4 edi sob sob

Posted by: RooP Jun 25 2008, 06:57 PM
i cant imagine shomaru with v4 concept. that is going to be like damn slow?.. XD

its quite stupid for them to separate the IRs too. i guess they dont like losing out to other people other than japan herself. =X

well min, i hope for INTL version, they will port back the bgm selection plus BUNTA challenge. and I WANT A GREEN TRUENO! grin2.gif

Posted by: TigerZai Jun 25 2008, 06:59 PM
I just hope they can give IDAS4 card transfer to IDAS5 ... like IDAS2 to IDAS3 T_T .... if not we wasted a lot of money and SEGA earn a lot money T_T

Posted by: *j*j* Jun 25 2008, 07:16 PM
hello all ID friends ... greetings from the far east ... hehe

here we go again i think SEGA is really trying to suck us high n dry with this release of the new version so fast ...

they never ever take an effort rectifying all the problems we have in the English version ... sigh > will they ever learn ???

even till now after the release of v4 that we have it for about 11 months in Malaysia the arcade owners is still yet to recover from their initial investment n now they come out with this crap ... i would wonder if they would consider purchasing it ...

as usual if we get it or not i would wonder if they really ever make a survey or research on the market requirements than just giving us craps as they like on our current version ... seriously time is not on my side as i m getting older n playing arcade games will be shorten tremendously for me as i felt that the fire in me have slow down ... sigh

anyway i hope it come out good so that all my buddies here n in my team will be able to enjoy the good side of it n give those JAPS a good run for their money on IR ... happy.gif


GOOD LUCK GUYZ ....

BTW if SEGA is really reading up here pls don't F**K UP again ...

lol @Jimmy > u not old enough lar... 34 only still young ..( got son edi ? ) i still saw alot uncle around 4x years old still playing IDAS4 / 3 .. some they was playing together with their son .. both also got the card LOL....
Even u was old already got no time to play but still got night ... so dont give up ..BURNING...... BURNINGGGGG

Posted by: Fuzz Jun 25 2008, 07:48 PM
My guess is that they would be using the current cabs from ID4 for ID5 and would save the cost, and maybe just have a fresh software installation like windows xp ==> windows vista.

When ID4 was announced, they were showing off the new cabs as a major selling point etc but havent so far. maybe its too early to tell but its just a guess.

I've read somewhere that because we waited too long for ID4 since V3 that it would seem that ID5 is coming too quickly but V2 and V3 had around 1yr inbetween them. I would rather they bring out something sooner if it was an improvement on the existing one.

Posted by: Takeshi Nakazato Jun 25 2008, 07:55 PM
intresting too bad no where near me will prob get it

but wish lish
-online features for all versions
-auras for all versions laugh.gif
- better physics then the ridge racer like in ID4

Posted by: TigerZai Jun 25 2008, 07:59 PM
Honestly i didnt get any new imformation from SEGA homepage =.='' cant find the IDAS5 imformation T_T

Posted by: BDDEE@ Jun 25 2008, 08:10 PM
im just thinking this
IDv4 was a failure, no doubt about it
sega receive all these angry letters and email about the problems of the game, why the customers dont like it, and then come here too these forums and read our thoughts how we pretty much ALL prefer IDv3/IDv2 physics and gameplay, they obviously are going to do something about it as the game is just about dead and it will ultimatly end initial d arcade series if they do not do something about it
this grabbed my attention however
操縦性ー新!! (New Maneuverability!!)
新たなるバトル感覚を体感せよ! (New sensory experience in battle!)
New maneuverability .. this could be a good thing and a bad thing, i dont see how they could f**k up this game any more than they already have so im hoping its a good thing
New sensory experience in battle .. new battles experiences? dno what the hell it means i guess we wont find out until they do a english poster or more info comes out
either way , if it resorts back too similiar physics of previous IDAS game like ID2 and v3 i will be happy, probably the perfect game for me would be a mix of ID2 and 3 physics without tst and eraser but keeping older stuff like feint and 5i4o and wheel jerk
and to whoever said add a clutch and more realistic physics? go play bg4 man initial d was GOOD because its fake....dont need that shit in there itll ruin it even more than it is

Posted by: TigerZai Jun 25 2008, 08:22 PM
But i think if they really add a clutch , the IDAS will more harder to play for it T_T
need to know the time cluth , need eraser again ..everything need fast liao =.=
Play more also stress and sweat alot ... When i play IDAS2 and 3 i sweat alot even for one game.. but in IDAS4 its relax more .. i like IDAS4 ... because i wont sweat too much or not sweat anymore XDDDDDDDDD

auras would be nice. i dont see why in store battle cant get it.

Posted by: DK_2 Jun 25 2008, 09:46 PM
true.
atleast add auras.
a shit load would come back already.
and the bunta.
even though i suck. tongue.gif

i wonder if they would mix ID3 physics with the ID4.5 ones.
like you know how in Stage 4 in the anime where it's gripping and drifting sometimes?
something like that.
and it would apply to BDDEE's likings. like he said 5 in 4 out.
the feinting.
braking points stuff like that.
but idk.
i'm just talking shet.

Posted by: BDDEE@ Jun 25 2008, 09:52 PM
nah thats...horrible
they had it right with V2 and start of V3 before eraser was discovered
V2 was probably the most popular arcade game to be played, the amount of ppl that played then was crazy

Posted by: TigerZai Jun 25 2008, 10:07 PM
Ya u are right ... my home town a lot of ppl still very like to play IDAS2 .. they said IDAS3 very hard to play =.= ( no have IDAS4 here yet )

Posted by: DK_2 Jun 25 2008, 10:08 PM
oh yea.
so in v2 it was like all braking and down shifting and stuff.
no eraser?
that's pretty cool.

Posted by: Jerry Liu Jun 25 2008, 10:08 PM
Honestly, I actually prefer the physics of ID4 over 3 because if you watch the replay videos, you're not exactly DRIFTING! The cars look more like they're forced turning! In 4, you actually look and feel like you're drifting! That's what I like.
There was still eraser in 2, it just wasn't discovered yet.

Posted by: DK_2 Jun 25 2008, 10:10 PM
oh i see.
but it'a boring in a way for id4.
cause all you do is turn and yah.
lol.
i mean 1.5 idk hw diff it is from 1.2
i personally like id3 physics waaaaaaaaaaaay better.

Posted by: Jerry Liu Jun 25 2008, 10:12 PM
So, you prefer eraser, TST, and all that?

Posted by: DK_2 Jun 25 2008, 10:14 PM
yes.
i suck real bad at it.
but hey.
i preffer it.
it's more fun.
the only reason i play id4 is graphics, occasional battles, and ya.

Posted by: Weezy Jun 25 2008, 10:16 PM
roflmao Ver 5 announced already? fck.

A lot of people prefer the previous version physics because it's more realistic...putting aside the glitches like eraser.

Then there's people that like Ver 4 because like you said it's more like drifting.

I think both physics are wack...they need GT physics.

Posted by: TigerZai Jun 25 2008, 10:19 PM
hmm... btw i like IDAS3 and IDAS4 .... XDD ... while playing IDAS3 i feel cool because im the most pro at my hometown XDDDD
while playing IDAS4 i feel relax .. i wont sweat so much like when playing IDAS3 .. i sweat alot T_T

and for IDAS2 is too simple ...hahaha

id3 wasnt drifting
only noobs said it was
we all understood it was not drifting
and its pretty obvious eraser worked in ID2, i meant they had it right when it was released before it was discovered, when it was just braking, line, and feint + 5i4o
just old school stuff, it was mad fun too play

The thing is... Initial D is a cartoon about drifting and that's what they should incorporate into the gameplay... drifting!

did you even play V3, when you first finished LOTS and got hooked to the game was it because your spamming the hell out of eraser?
eraser was only spammed maybe a year or two after initial release... beforehand either no one knew what it was or they thought it was for select corners only
so in its prime days eraser wasnt a major part unless it was for WR TA ... without eraser its still V3... just a shitload better version
you make the most invalid points man seriously, do you even play arcade games?

Posted by: Jerry Liu Jun 25 2008, 11:44 PM
I'm saying eraser is used so much that it's practically part of it now. And I started ID3 when people were spamming eraser.

Posted by: Weezy Jun 25 2008, 11:51 PM
rofl BDDEE...calm down no more owning plz.

Ok Jerry we all know that. There's still a lot of people that don't know how to use it properly, use it well (i.e. me), or don't even know the glitches.
It's too bad you started it when it was gey...no wonder.

Posted by: Jerry Liu Jun 25 2008, 11:55 PM
Yeah, you know the simulator next to the ID4 machines at Gameworks? To be honest, I kinda wish there was a manual transmission so I can do eraser on that, hahahahahaha.

This is kind of weird...

well first... my "criticisms" on the arcade saga... Good and bad mixed.

IDASV2-3 (I started out at 2)
- The FD looks weird; comparing it to the GT4 or GT5 FD graphics...
- For a few courses (v2), they seem hard to beat! (both)
- A huge range of good cars.
- Tuning course is a bit of a drag... Especially if you're aiming for a specific car part you're after.
QUOTE
Example:
    Car: A-tune (Keisuke)
    player objective: from the A tune, make it to the RE Amemiya FD that Keisuke's using in 4th stage.
    problem: C Tune (RE Amemiya) has the wrong muffler, rims and wing.
                  D Tune has the wing close to that of what you want
                  Player has to keep on playing until the RANDOM upgrade that he wants 
                  comes out. (sucky isn't it?)

- There is equality amongst all kinds of cars. No car is superior over another in terms of performance unless it's the home course advantage. The gap is based by the skill of the player.
QUOTE
Example:
            player 1: Mazda rx-7 FD type R
            player 2: AE86 Trueno
            race course: Akina DH
            unanimous winner: player 2
            basis: player 2 has home course advantage. Player 1 has weak car on Akina. (FD's weak course is Akina.)

- Saitama looks great! (why did they remove in v4!?)
- Aura spells doom to both players. Y?
Player with weak aura = Good: if he kicks his stronger opponent's ass, level uP!
Bad: Huge feel of losing before the match; lose confidence
Player with strong aura = Good: Has great confidence
Bad: if he loses, it's like dying!
- many skills to apply!
- can't drift much even if you want to...
- I LOVE AKINA SNOW!!
- you gain speed while turning... fear2.gif
- the GDB (2001) impreza is not photogenic to look at... looks like an owl... why put it there?
- 50 plays only!? crying2.gif Sucky...

IDASv4 (current)
- Tuning process takes too much time: you need 35 upgrades to become a "God there".
- Random customize shop is irritating
- I love Shin Myogi!!
- I hate God-like Takumi at Akina!!
- Bunta is still unstoppable. Blue looks better on the ver.5 Impreza than the manga grey color.
- GT-R evolves from V-spec 2 to V-spec 2 Nur (what difference does it make in the game?)
- No. of current courses become boring afterwards compared to v3 ( v3 has 8 tracks, v4 has 6 tracks)
- If your avatar is a guy, Sayuki will hit on you laugh.gif when you win
- If your avatar is a guy, has an FD, Kyoko will hit on you accidentally laugh.gif blink.gif laugh.gif before you race... or also when you win
- If your avatar has a GT-R, Nakazato will curse you! dry.gif before you race
- Individual parts (hoods, skirts, kits) are selectable. You can make your own set without the worry of waiting for that part to arrive...
- 2 different features for Jap and it'l version is pissing lots of players.
- Aura system disabled...
- Characters look great in 3D... except for the hands (i.e. Ryosuke in 3D)
- Everything seems 85% real! 15% pixel obvious. (ahem... trees)
- too drifty!! Hate that feeling...
- you lose speed while turning at the max gear sad.gif
- The evo9 and GDBF look great... but perform like the evo7+gear 6 and GDB...
- Card errors bug us all! (error 403 when buying and renewing)
- Card alone is too expensive... it's like conquering akina and winning over Iketani lots or losing to Takumi lots...

That's my synopsis on both...

suggestions for v5
- Return old cars from previous versions (as said by most here)
- Return old tracks from previous versions (said by most here)
- Retain how to upgrade (customizing shop - you pick your own car body parts; no tuning courses)
- Remove random encounters with customizing shop
- Bring back auras...
- Retain speaking characters at LOTS
- Remove lose-speed-at-max-gear-when turning feeling
- no glitches
- bring back the snow!!
- make takumi hard to beat at Tsukuba/project D... he's a small ass at v4. dissapointing...
- Retain Shin Myogi, add other great tracks onto game
- put a Z on the car lineup (Fairlady)
- Involve avatars on story than just a picture or a 1st person view. Let them talk too!
- Give everyone equal chances in racing...
(players with FT cars dominate players with stocks anytime)
- More emphasis on skill than mods... or better yet... equal that amount... no predominance over the other...

anything else you guys here might add... add them too! smile.gif

Without eraser, it's just not Ver. 3...


@jerry I happen to be a player that does not use eraser, TST, brakes(yes brakes) and plays in 3rd person view in IDAS 3. even without eraser it can still be Ver. 3 as long as the game physics remains similar (feint, 5in4o), even without eraser or TST I still get good runs on ID3.

It's all about enjoying the game wink2.gif

you are contradicting to yourself's earlier remarks.

its always being skills needed more than just exterior mods. if you still have this mentality that mods will affect skills (bodykit mods i mean.. not the standard tunings). i think you had interpreted the game very wrongly from the very start.

different car strengths like in V3 was good, gives every car a different feeling and you have too learn too adapt too the car because lets face it not every car is the same

it isnt shin myogi... shin myogi is in IDSS for ps2 no idas4

in IDv3 and IDAS4 mods made no difference(closest thing to it is like in ID3 A tune on trueno is racing engine ect ect), it only depends on the skill of the driver

Is this an Upgrade? Or do you have to buy an entire new dedi-cab, because in all honesty, I doubt anyone in the states will get this game, an upgrade MIGHT help, but really, that's about it.

IDAS5 still wont come for another 8-10months
it is long time, you may aswell continue
i am doing that, but when it hits HK i will stop IDAS41.5 .. then save up my $$ for it too come here
because HK always gets game like 1 month before us T_T
so if IDAS5 is good i will have money too spam on it and play alot
if it is bad i will just play more mt3

Make or break for Sega now.

No matter how much better the physics gets, if they dont fix the RANKING ISSUES all around then we're screwed. Thats what the game is all about for me.

I'm optemistic though...

ID5?? Yeah man!!! I'm loving SEGA. I just hope that i can transfer my card.

wish list for ID5:

-music selection (especially Forever Young)
-brake more before a corner
-Full counter-steering when drifting
-more feel of the gutters rolleyes.gif
-put a cone at the end of a course and u-turn. wink2.gif
-no pc or eraser or whatsoever
-online battles, auras and battle levels
-more upgrades and able to convert parts to stock
-clutch
-choice of grip tires or drift tires
-no difference between jap. ver. and int. ver. except language.

I assume the reason the WMMT rankings were split was due to the fact that the Japanese versions had the 3 extra Gemballa cars while the English version didn't have them.

Im pretty hopeful, they'll find a way to transfer the IDAS4 cards. Right now they cant use the IDAS4 cards of course to test the game out. Besides, the new game has 2 new courses so they're gonna have to fix it a bit but the card looks the same. Here's hoping somebody from SEGA IS reading this. Hey, editor why dont you slip a little sumpin' sumpin' about what the players want to your contacts?

so faggots cant spam eraser anymore? you think people spam it in IDAS4 or MT3????
who cares about real skill? its a video game
the games fun because its fake, id3 implied basic racing lines + the fakeness which made it fun (asides from eraser and tst) .. i loved ID2 and ID3 my favourite games of all time
and shifting with a clutch is no big deal, it is not hard i dont even drive yet i can jump in a real car and do it fine ...

You don't think that looks almost the same?

well, that's a weird predicament...
95% alike to ID4...
aside from 2 new tracks... what else is new...?
@ jerry, where did you get that pic from?

any other features that can get our interest or gameplay and story and blah blah are all like ID4 only with new characters, and tracks?

I don't know about how people play IDAS4 since I've never been anywhere near a machine. Last I ever played was a V3 machine back in California, so I'm running on that knowledge.

ahhh i see i see
eraser was removed from V4...it was a complete physics change which no one really liked
im pretty sure alot of people would prefer eraser and shit over what we got now .. it was far more popular also
so im hoping IDAS5 will be like...the game everyone comes back too .. things we enjoyed in the past like in IDAS2 and 3 without the eraser + TST... and also the physics a mix between it
it would have potential to be more popular than mt3 is at the moment i think

This show ID4 failure.

Personnally I hope ID5 physics will base on ID3.

But since ID4 don't hit Thailand yet, I don't think I'll see ID5 in Thailand. And if the company keep their suck ass policy, no more ID came here.

Posted by: Jerry Liu Jun 29 2008, 08:30 PM
Personally, I think that Sega should stick with drifting in their Initial D games. I think the main reason why you guys prefer the old physics is because you guys are so used to it, but it wasn't drifting and Initial D 4 was the first Initial D game with actual drifting in it... Just my opinion, though.

Posted by: n3muru_zha1 Jun 29 2008, 08:43 PM
yea...in actual drift u need to brake to drift and the speed will decrease when u drift...tat is what actual drift is i guess...

so, this is what I got out of it that make sense:
Players Course rival BGM

* Akina

Mako & Saiyuki (down dry day)
Kyoko Iwaki (uphill dry day)
o BGM
+ LOOKA BOMBA / GO 2 LOOKA BOMBA / GO 2

MIDNIGHT LOVE / NEO MIDNIGHT LOVE / NEO

* Happo

Daiki Ninomiya (outward dry day)
Smiley Sakai (sunny day return trip) RETURN TRIP, SO IN AND OUTBOUND!? DO U HAVE TO PAY EXTRA FOR THAT?
o BGM
DISCO FIRE / DAVE RODGERS DISCO FIRE / DAVE RODGERS

* Tsukuba
o Rival
Two otakus from Tokyo (outward dry day)
Wataru Akiyama (rain day return trip)
o BGM
+ SUN IN THE RAIN / MANUEL SUN IN THE RAIN / MANUEL

*New Car? Supra?

speed rate will change, penalty will count in Irohazaka apex when hit

release date unknown

I think it says that some version 3 and 4 staff will not be developing this game

Sorry, I made a mistake, where it says "Kyoko Iwaki" is suppose to be Senji
I forgot Kyoko's last name is "Iwase"

In addition, Supra RZ and Evo VII is confirmed on the game
maybe we can see some more characters than just team street vision

Posted by: Weezy Jun 29 2008, 10:22 PM

man why the VII? They have to add the best of the best....VI.

adding neon and nitrous means they had become the combination of THE FAST AND FURIOUS and Initial D...NOS and drift in downhill!! laugh.gif

Posted by: Roaddawg Jun 30 2008, 03:20 AM
I think that it is best if they add a new system of cornering. For eg.

1) Brake before a corner and turn without braking=gripping
2) Brake through corner and use accelerator to control=drifting

its not because wer so used to it, its because of the simple fact that it was better than IDAS4 physics
1.5 was a large improvement but does not come upto par with ID3...
face it, drifting was not meant for IDAS gameplay, they tried, they failed... they should just go back to what pleased the customers and earned them money

Posted by: BOZZ Jun 30 2008, 05:49 AM
So are those all the courses in the new version?

Posted by: BDDEE@ Jun 30 2008, 05:52 AM
theres 8 slots, so 8 courses
probably the ones from IDAS4 + 2 new ones, im pretty confident happo would be in the new one as they included it in IDEX ... other one i got no idea

since in the jap wiki there states theres SUPRA (apparently the option is greyed out), maybe the other new course could be the supra course featured in the manga itself.

Posted by: RIT_ninja Jul 2 2008, 08:51 PM
my prediction for the course lineup

Akina Lake
Myogi
Akagi
Akina
Irohazaka
Tsukuba
Happo (could be the final course, that would suck)
Hakone (maybe, there's a high possibility since they're adding the supra)

yup, that's 8
Tsukuba and Happo is promised, as well as the returning stages

It's already in Maximum Tune, though. I doubt they'd put it in Initial D.

They have nothing to do with each other.

Posted by: Jerry Liu Jul 3 2008, 12:44 AM
From what the tech at Gameworks told me, Sega basically produced Maximum Tune. Though the game is Namco branded, the techs, wires, and whatnot are Sega. Sega got a share of the profit from the game as well as Namco. That's why Gameworks is Sega branded, but they got games from Namco, Konami, and whatnot cuz they all got shares in the profit. So, Namco is still technically Sega.

That's pretty interesting. I highly doubt they helped with the software of the game. If that's the case it should just be a Sega game.

Posted by: Jerry Liu Jul 3 2008, 11:05 AM
Yeah, allthough they didn't do the software for Maximum Tune, I'm pretty sure Sega knows about the game they did the hardware for, so therefore, I highly doubt Hakone will be in Initial D.

Posted by: crow Jul 3 2008, 11:48 AM
i do think there is a big chance that the new map would be HAKONE

because sega said they would include a NEW map

and unfortunately in the manga HAKONE is the next map that PROJECT D went and tried to raid,

well if it is not hakone it's still going to be fun anyway, happy.gif

its not like hakone isn't in any other arcade game....or akina...or akagi

Posted by: DamienWolf Jul 4 2008, 06:59 PM
Its probably Hakone. Shomaru is also possible as we have the Altezza on the car lineup. Or Usui. All possible Initial D maps involving the cars available on the game used in the anime.

Posted by: Jerry Liu Jul 4 2008, 09:55 PM
According to this thread, they weren't actually running on Hakone, just near there.

So I just logged in and saw this... I doubt I would ever play another version of ID at the arcade again, but whats this all about?

And for those screaming TOO SOON, TOO SOON, I think V1-3 all came out within a year of each other. Then it was like 3 or 4 years until V4.

I'm pretty sure the arcade down the street will get it.

Posted by: DamienWolf Sep 27 2008, 06:48 PM
Im pretty sure sega will bide their time a little. With the negative reactions they got from ID4. they're probably gonna take some time out to fix the new game to keep up with the competition and take a share in the arcade market again.

Posted by: icedagger Sep 27 2008, 10:27 PM
Well, they really should put more work in IDAS5 then they did with this version. IDAS4 (particularly the international versions) were missing a whole lot of functionality that IMO should have been there from the start. Just to name a few:

-No bgm selector. Come on Sega, would it have hurt that much to let the user select the bgm on the loading screen? IDAS4 has a great soundtrack, but not being able to select the bgm kind of spoils it.
-F*cked up tuning shop: 6 plays just to get one tuning part = FAIL. Considering the cost they charge for each play, Sega needs to fix this pronto.
-Too few courses. Nuff said. They should add at least 3 courses to IDAS5 before they release.
-Screwed up physics: That "oversteer-because-you-didn't-brake" mechanic has got to go. If Sega wants players to brake for turns, they should find some better way to do it rather than just scattering "invisible oil slicks" on seemingly random turns.

Posted by: WRX DEMON Type R Nov 30 2008, 07:33 AM
from the pics and vids so far of people's high level looking cars, im guessing that the transfer is instant - unlike in the older versions where the card would be transferred, but would require a few more wins to re-obtain all the parts that were lost during the transfer.

I did find the quote above interesting. It is not as strange as you may think. The Japanese Bandai Namco Games team on 'Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 3', developed the game on the N2 hardware - which is fundamentally a PC (just like SEGA's LindBergh hardware).

Regarding cabinet development - SEGA's R&D team do have links to Namco GM team members, and you could also argue that they share information as Namco and SEGA have an agreement on machine placement in their respective venues in Japan.

But - and there was always going to be a but - I would not dempend on my information from a GameWorks guy, but rather than a arcade guy in JP. That all said he could have got the real deal from Chicago staffers and then we would be closer to the facts.

SEGA just launched their new driver for the US at the show I am back from, so IDS5 is not going to be on us till at least Q2'09 - image below:
