| Hey auckland players, been a long time.
initial d 5 was brought to timezone this morning and installed much later in the afternoon, i cannot say the price just yet because i left for work just before they finished the installation and coin cascade hadnt given them a specific price to set.
all i can say is that its $3 or $2 a play, knowing from the past, which isnt much cos every thursday is half price and every 1st wednesday of all months is double dollars.
aswell as all feb and november months.
i'll be coming out of retirement aswell for this version so lets have some nice battles like in ver2 and 3, ver4 was a complete faliure.
oh one more thing...
we have the japanese version so going by the past versions i doubt we can transfer our ID4 cards over, sorry in advance.
to help our players that cant read jap (like myself lol ).
1st= legend of streets
2nd= time attack
3rd= online mode (we wont have this feature even tho we have jap version i think).
4th= instore battle
5th= event mode
im sure when the phillipines and singapore get it we can get damien and other guys helping out with translations and tuning process etc.
as far as i know new cars are supra, roadster, rx7 rs, evo 7 (yes re added rofl), mrs (again re added).
new tracks are hakone and shiet thats all i know lol.
ill be in playing from opening till closing ours tomorow so ill post a hella lot of info in a different thread for all id.net players to veiw, like ID4 times .
anyways nite nite all ^^.

| Shale needs to get in on this. So i can finally beat her down.
Wait, are you guys getting the internet battlez?
|Posted by: Retsuka Mar 19 2009, 08:20 PM|
| lol 3 hours of full initial d is enough for today.
finished the game once, lost to bunta in the last corner tho.
thoughts on legend of the streets= really easy tbh, beat everyone on 1st try except akina tak (4 tries) keisuke (nagao 2 tries) and takumi (nagao 3 tries).
takumi and bunta on akina are ferocious on the last corner (yes the very last right corner, they blast into it if u cant block ur farked).
same with nagao keisuke and takumi are quite fast in the last 15 seconds or so.
its really easy to get used to ID5 i love it so far.
most exciting race was agaisnt omya man i loved that race lol... anyways hmm tuning system of the car seems to be the same as ID4, if anyone has any questions or something ask cos ill be going in to have a game or two tomorow also.
version exp will not have online feature.
and TZ's instore battle feature will be fixed on monday.

|that's crap not having it going online. have you asked your arcade attendant to push for an online connection? the game would be so much fun if that was the case|
|Posted by: Tsyta Mar 19 2009, 09:44 PM|
|its written on the actual machine that version exp will not have the online and event features enabled. so i dunno about making it online even if we have a connection|
|Posted by: shadow_z3r0 Mar 19 2009, 09:55 PM|
| ah yes, but that's because it's without internet connection.
once it's connected it'll update and then we can have the online features.
or at least that's what we heard in singapore

|Do any of you guys know when IDAS5 will be arriving at sydney?|
|Posted by: spl Mar 20 2009, 08:16 PM|
|Galaxy World will be getting it in Sydney in the next few weeks I have heard.|
|Posted by: Tsyta Mar 21 2009, 12:31 AM|
| no one cares about aussie u guys are slow .
jks jks lol, ill be visiting sydney next year so hopefully u have it by then.
i wanna watch some TA vids if anyone has any please post them up, as of now im actually over 20 seconds or around 20 seconds slower the WR times, its only been 2 days but wtf lol the difference is huge.
ah nmm just saw in some vids the difference between stock and fulltune is like chocolate and shit.
from the vids i can tell theres over 10 sec difference at least lol.
|Posted by: stormfox Mar 21 2009, 05:02 AM|
wakaka... chocolate and shit... didn't see that coming...
i'll believe in id.net connection for EXP machine.... when i see it...
sega didnt really give me much confidence since the last version
|Posted by: Tsyta Mar 21 2009, 12:31 PM|
this time round its true though.
they never made such a big difference in ft and stock, its actually well worth fting a car now, ill ft mine in a week or so cos too lazy to pay fullprice for ID games, $1 per game on thursdays ftw.

|Just had a few games of this today, looks pretty good but will definitely take a bit of getting use to.|

Hetakuso (へたくそ) and Akachan( あかちゃん) reporting in. I still have my Japanese cards so I'll be testing to see if they can be transferred to the overseas arrange version. I also have a Arcade Stage 5 card now, but my Japanese card is almost full tuned if I recall correctly...
New track isn't Hakone either. Happogahara (from pre-Arcade Stage 4) and Nagao. What're your card names, retsuka? Are you the Indian-looking guy with the braces? (no offence intended if that sounds racist or harsh!) I'm the guy who shows up in a business shirt and trousers Monday-Thursday, and casual clothes on Fridays, with the JDM backpack
|Posted by: Tsyta Mar 26 2009, 02:19 PM|
| haha sorry that post was many days back.
and just to clarify Retsuka was a very old forum name that i used to use when i was younger, kinda better using my card name as the forum name so people know me easily.
and yeh the 'indian looking guy with braces' sounds quite right hahaha.
tho im from iran so describe me as the terrorist guy with the braces rofl.
i remember seeing JDM on a backpack but i cant recall who was wearing it or just say hi in person.
unless ur that white guy that drives the s13 ? meh, lol ill come in today to talk to santoso so yea see u there probably.
wait nmm u are lol, kk i know who u are now yo xD, and my card name is Tsyta, black evo 3 that makes the pang pang noise
|Posted by: Mr. Shine Mar 26 2009, 02:36 PM|
Yeah that's me no offence meant with the "Indian-looking" thing - I meant that to include the middle east, but it's hard to pinpoint it
I just dropped in on my way to the office now (lack of actual work to do ftw!) but they were trying to fix the machine link or something, so I'll drop by on my way back to class in about 45mins or so to try and update my Japanese cards. Fingers crossed... will be awesome if all that Yen spent can benefit me here, too
Cars on my Japanese cards are a near-FT AE86 Levin and a red S13, off the top of my head. Can't wait to try
|Posted by: stormfox Mar 26 2009, 03:31 PM|
Who ever said Hakone?
You'll either love or hate what they did to Happo now... Nagao is cool too
|Posted by: Tsyta Mar 26 2009, 03:59 PM|
i perfer ver3 happo.
all they needed to do to ver 3 was.
better graphics, removal of tst and eraser, nerf GDB and RX8 start up.
add 3 new cars and 2 new tracks.
gg best version ever.
but no, they added all this pointless shit and messed ID up for good lol.
|Posted by: Mr. Shine Mar 26 2009, 11:31 PM|
I was pretty happy with Arcade Stage 4 up until "the patch", but I was playing it in Japan so it was simply put, much, much better. Arcade Stage 5 got me psyched when I played the live tests over New Year as well, and I'm glad we've got effectively the Japanese version minus the online battles.
I do miss Version 3, though. That's when I really started playing it, and I miss playing Version 3 in Japan. Good times.
|Posted by: stormfox Mar 27 2009, 08:15 AM|
ID4.. i liked it initially... until someone discovered brake-cancel.. that sorta puts a dampener on things cos everything starts feeling weird and out of place. then i drifted off... once in a while was fun.. but never held me like the Ver series.
yea... V3 was the holy grail of the Ver series.
Lets see if ID5 can match up to that in time to come... it is looking promising so far
|Posted by: Hcorp Mar 30 2009, 02:34 PM|
|I'll have to stop by TZ sometime this or next week. I played heavily during V2 back when YZY held all of our TA records (wow I must have been like 14 and I'm 20 now), then less so during V3 and by the time V4 rolled around, I was playing WMMT3. This looks good enough to come back for, and the Evo VII being in the game sells me on it o:|
|Posted by: Tsyta Mar 30 2009, 06:46 PM|
i remember that name but not the driver.
was probably rob or one of his buddies lol.
yeh its been a while since version 2. i was only 12 then ,
if ur gonna come in come in tomorow cos its double dollars (every 1st wednesday of all months)
and make a big top up then that will last u the whole month.

| Has interest in AS5 died out already?
I just beat Bunta today, shaving 2 seconds off my Akina DH time to manage it... pretty happy with that
|Posted by: Heron Apr 13 2009, 06:40 PM|
|Not yet. But I am in SG...|
|Posted by: BDDEE@ Apr 13 2009, 08:09 PM|
its almost more popular then wangan here in brisbane in aus =.=
hopefully doesnt die out anywhere
|Posted by: gkstm Feb 2 2010, 09:39 PM|
does anyone still play?
I saw two guys playing today... it was TAKUMI and I forgot the other dude's name...
I am thinking of playing it, I've played Initial D 3, but I wasn't that good at all, but the IDAS5 graphics is just too awesome
I was going to buy a card today... but then there was an error 403 come up on the screen, and pretty much failed
luckily the manager was there to help me and stuff, and gave me a $8 refund
but yea so I decided to not buy it.
Does anyone know whats wrong with the error 403 thing.... is the machine faulty or maybe it's just my unlucky day ?
Coz I saw one dude playing and it takes aaaaaaaaaaaaaaages to eject his card.
and it also says something about online battle not available... and it talks something about saving the game.
meh anyways, I'll probably still buy the card when Uni starts
but what are a good car to choose for begginer?
I tried the r32 and FC today.
both on their home courses....... so........ lol.
I'm kinda leaning towards the r32 more though....... I played the PSP version of IDAS3 and I really love the r32
I also used the rx7, it was great, but it didn't do as well as the r32 in shoumaru (I play a lot there). or maybe I just suck
so anyone suggest a good car?
I hate evos or the subarus, so thats out of the list
which one is more of an overall car, r32 or the FC?
BTW, the manager is the guy with the glasses right?
anyone know what country he is from?
