Thing is this patch is announced for the Japanese versions and not ours yet. So we probably won't get an answer for that question anytime soon.

Because Sega didn't include the online battles (needed that to rank up/aura), and it was definitely laziness on their part not to fix the ranks and auras to be able to be acquired thru In-Store.

i doubt they would do that. but if they did do something like that i think it would be by nation like how japan is right now. the world is a little too big in my opinion. and there would probly be lag and other issues.

they'll just implement online battles in small regions around the size of japan, depending on the connection between those areas.

I could see online battles working between southern Cali, Vegas, and here in Phoenix. Its a pretty short distance and we have 2 locations with ID4 with a third location that has it on order. Im just not sure if 2 of the places are willing to set up for online play.

Every arcade here in Phoenix has English cabs. I think you read my post wrong based on your response. Im speaking hypothetically, that it could work between these distances.

I live in California, and I've been thinking of getting a card. Should I wait for the update to come out before buying a card or would all the old cards be able to transfer over?

Yes, i totally missed your point. laugh.gif
Come to think of it. What type of connector do the cabs use for their network connection? BNC ? Rj-45?

if it uses rj-45, *maybe we could hook up an "internal" ID.NET server.... tongue.gif. fear2.gif fear2.gif fear2.gif though it sounds far-fetched...

But how would you get the server? With just the RJ45 ethernet link, no matter how far away it will still treat it as in store.

We tried doing that with the Japanese machines in HK connecting it over to Japan but they refused connection and there is no way of making our own server without the software from Sega in the first place.

sounds like battlenet to me. LOL

i personally feel online within our own country is still feasible. but thru out the world would definitely need the software from sega and server config.

and another thing, i dont really think the japanese side would like our "invasion" to their online battle areas.... of which they had already done so with the IR website already...XDDD

Did you manage to find out why? I guess they blocked out of japan ip addresses. judging from ur postm the cab connects to the network via normal ethernet interface.
Does ISB connect via the same interface too for english cabs?
Is it possible to change the network settings on the cab via its bios system menu? maybe can try use some japan proxies and see if it allows the connection.

too bad there's not jap cabs here in malaysia to test this out crying2.gif

and hope some arcade operators are reading this and willing to help out.

It's not a programming error.. it's a hardware design flaw in the card mechanism.

So I'm browsing the IDAS4 Japanese site looking for character kanji when I stumble across the news postings on the front page. Considering I've not heard about this nor seen it mentioned on the forums... figured I'd point it out. If you guys already know, then please excuse my rudeness.

Looks like I was beaten to it somewhat, as the IDAS4 Announcements section has a topic about this. Guess it should be merged. I'd like to note that "Kai" does not translate to "Break," however. Kai is an add-on to something to specify that it is "new." For instance, in Gundam, when a new version of a mobile suit design is made they tack "kai" onto the end.

So check this out. Back at the end of December, Sega announced that they were working on a new version of IDAS4 called "IDAS4 Kai" which would mark a milestone in the IDAS4 development. Here are a list of changes, right from the Japanese website:

-Three new cars added. Altezza, RX-8, Eunos Roadster.
user posted image

-(For Initial D.NET only?) Custom Paint. Under the section for new cars is a paragraph mentioning subscribers to INITIALD.NET. It says that aside from colors that come stock from the factory on the car in question, they can make their car whatever color they want. AWESOME. Too bad we international folks are going to get shafted AGAIN! pinch2.gif

-BGM Select. ABOUT TIME! I wanna use Forever Young ALL THE TIME.

-Retuned Physics. It doesn't go into detail about what exactly is changed, but they mention that the entire handling feel of the game has been redone, and the car balance has been reworked as well (they actually say battle balance, but I assume that means car abilities). Maybe this will get some of the players who hated IDAS4 to try it one more time.

And the last post on the page, dated March 12th, says that the final release date for this update is March 24th. Three more days! I really hope that they worked on an International patch at the same time as the Japanese one... and I hope my local arcade updates!!

EDIT: Forgot to put the link to the main page for those who wanna see for themselves:

We know kai doesn't translate into break, but that was the english title or something.
And those 3 cars are already in the English version.

Read the bolded part of my post, I already saw that thread. tongue.gif Just didn't notice it at first because "Break" didn't make sense, haha.

Oh well, at least I'm the first to post the release date. laugh.gif
