Friend battles 2 wins and 1 loss against team mate XD
|Posted by: flubbachany Jul 10 2008, 10:16 PM|
|FT'ed my S13. Now for some modifications!|
|Posted by: Silfa Jul 10 2008, 11:47 PM|
|hit a2 3 times already. i keep getting put into SS games, and i dont know how they keep pulling away when i'm going fast. im stumped at this point. and i put over 20 hours on this game and i still have the same set of avatar parts. its getting annoying.|
|Posted by: Odie Jul 11 2008, 08:50 AM|
| I saw PIKA!!!!!!! -____-
It's so frustrating when they all run times close to their arcade equivalents and here I am barely able to 2'38 Myogi. I'm 7 seconds slower than arcade 1.5 >.<
|Posted by: keisukeMamoru86 Jul 11 2008, 09:52 AM|
|Did about 5 battles in a row, won 4 in a row, lost the last one. I think I'm C2 now, or really really close to it|
|Posted by: henshin Jul 11 2008, 11:26 AM|
|I needed to win 1 battle to get to c2, but they paired me with a rank SS with 171 wins and 1 loss. Seriously, do they NOT want me to rank up?|
|Posted by: DK_2 Jul 11 2008, 12:22 PM|
| got some ranked battles.
FD3S told me never to rank during night.
i got some satisactory times.
I FT! yess!
|Posted by: Odie Jul 11 2008, 07:43 PM|
| Close battles this morning with the same person in succession. The Silvia* driver someone posted on youtube XD
and.. LOL @ DK's signature. Reminds me of my friends GC8V on version 3 where he tried to use GUNDAM in katakana and it turned out to be GUSODAMU
|Posted by: rockman227 Jul 11 2008, 08:09 PM|
| played iam in akina,played online but my connection cuts when i play with japanese people
but so far was good
|Posted by: Silfa Jul 11 2008, 09:47 PM|
|starting over now. using a new car, the s2000 is bothering me now. playing lots to FT.|
|Posted by: keisukeMamoru86 Jul 12 2008, 12:04 AM|
|I'm halfway up to B2 now. And I shaved a tiny bit off of my Akina time - current time is 3'12'3xx on the Dualshock 3. It'll take me a while, but I'm determined to get down to at least 3'08 (that's my goal for the moment). Got owned by som B3 guy with 100% win ratio on Myogi DH.|
|Posted by: Silfa Jul 12 2008, 10:45 AM|
|this is kinda weird. i started playing online with my new account, and i got matched up with a S1 already. too bad he sucked, he had a s2000 too|
|Posted by: DK_2 Jul 29 2008, 01:32 AM|
| ok so i just wanna bumo this thread keep it going again.
i broke into the '48 area for Iro on the DC2.
and earned up to 360k+ from ranked.
i lost 3 in a row towards the end of the night.
and got really aggravated and became a sore loser so i DCed on the 3rd loss. T_T
online record is 43 overaall races and the stats are 33-9-1
eh my record feels dirty. T_T
i regret that dc.
maybe today will be a better day.
i'm looking to FT an S2K today btw.
one shot of lots should do it.
|Posted by: Scour Jul 29 2008, 01:45 AM|
| Thought I might put my first post in here,
My day has been good so far except the weather.
My Initial D game has not yet arrived but should be here by the weekend. Hoping to get a few good gaming hours in this weekend.
Juggling up the decision to either buy a Driving Force Pro of a G25.. Bit of a price difference but leaning towards the G25 as I am a huge Gran Turismo fan and that wheel would be ace.
|Posted by: drift king Jul 29 2008, 07:22 AM|
| ^^^+1 on the G25 + GT5P
make sure you have a decent setup that can support the wheel when mounted...meaning don't expect to have fun using your lap to balance the wheel
|Posted by: Scour Jul 29 2008, 09:58 AM|
Of course, I remember having problems holding on to my cheapo PS1 wheel back when I was an addict at GT2 (Still best GT game by far!)
Probably just screw a few bit and pieces together to make up some sort of rig. Got a couple of pre 80s lancer seats from an unfinished/unstarted project that I will probably use.
Grrr wish the mail service would hurry up!
|Posted by: JPLUS Jul 29 2008, 11:42 AM|
|Got IDES and my wheel today. Started LotS and made it up to Ryosuke on Akagi but I kept getting owned. Had a Panda Trueno but I decided I wanted a red one so I started a new file.|
|Posted by: Silfa Jul 29 2008, 03:04 PM|
|^ are you serious? You know you can change the color of your car right?|
|Posted by: DK_2 Jul 29 2008, 03:50 PM|
| So far in my day.
LOST ANOTHER ONLINE MATCH WTF. That's two for today.
Then my online started crapping out.
So I gave up.
When i get home again ima do lots in rain with a newly made s2k I have about 440k. For points I should FT in about the same time I finish LOTs.
|Posted by: Tessou Jul 29 2008, 04:03 PM|
| Played a bit of online, beat a bunch of Japanese players. There was this D3 in a yellow AE85 that relentlessly blocked me to get a win on Irohazaka, but nothing else too special. I don't understand why anybody would choose to race on Akina Lake since there's no skill required there. Some chick in a stock EK9 challenged me to the lake against my FT FD...
TB_Inuyasha_X raced me and beat me 4 times with his Evo IV. I really need to work on my Iro lines, especially at the jumps.
EDIT: I pinned this thread since it's bound to be just as popular as the mirror thread in the Initial D Arcade Stage section. I would like to stress that members should start posting their IDES comments in this thread instead of in Arcade Stage section since they are not the same game.
- Your friendly Pri Mod, Tessou
|Posted by: JPLUS Jul 29 2008, 07:18 PM|
Yeah, I had no idea. I decided to start a GC8 today cause the Trueno felt a bit too drifty. Do you guys drive with one foot? Or is the left foot usually used for braking?
|Posted by: Silfa Jul 29 2008, 07:35 PM|
|as for driving left foot for braking and right for gas. the 86 isn't that bad.|
|Posted by: Scour Jul 29 2008, 10:14 PM|
You will find that with any game that only uses two pedals you should use two feet, unlike real life.
|Posted by: initial_drifter Jul 30 2008, 06:31 AM|
|my online rank up to a1 . in lots,i can't win ob in happo.different distance 100m|
|Posted by: sannin Jul 30 2008, 01:28 PM|
|ahhhhhhh, a s15 rammed me into the wall on akina dh!!!! he sucked too. probably was running at a 3'17 pace. i freaking came out of RHOD at 124 and still closed the gap near the end of cp4.... wasn't enough tho...... lost my winning streak!! was earning 15000 pts per win while i had my streak!!!|
|Posted by: Silfa Jul 30 2008, 08:23 PM|
|thinking about giving up on 2'44 on iro. its been 2 weeks now, and billy once again beat his time. this game is so random when you lose and gain speed. its getting frustrating.|
|Posted by: Takeshi Nakazato Jul 30 2008, 09:13 PM|
you have to keep on it
|Posted by: Tomo Jul 30 2008, 09:15 PM|
|i figured out iro today, i got 2'47 with a stock car lol... cant wait for it to be tuned haha|
|Posted by: Silfa Jul 30 2008, 09:26 PM|
|i have been for weeks now. but i don't understand how to break into 2'44. honestly at this point, i should just drive the canyons with my Z. its pretty frustrating.|
|Posted by: Tomo Jul 30 2008, 09:33 PM|
|canyons in a z? maybe thats your problem, you have to have a little bit of finesse.|
|Posted by: Silfa Jul 31 2008, 03:04 AM|
|or mountain pass whatever lol|
|Posted by: JPLUS Jul 31 2008, 09:18 AM|
|Played LOTS and got everyone doublecrossed except on Happo and the opponents you have to unlock. GC8 almost FT'd.|
|Posted by: TB_InuYasha_X Jul 31 2008, 07:03 PM|
| Maxed out my S2k..
So now i have two maxed out cars...
Evo 4 / S2K
I'm working on my Sil-Eighty next.... I won't give up.. i will do my best.. to make it to the top.. no matter how many times.. I am defeated...
I'll work on two tracks for now...
Tsukuba / Happo..... So far.. those are the tracks I win on a-lot..
|Posted by: Silfa Jul 31 2008, 07:11 PM|
|hit 2'49"9xx on Iro DH Wet, currently ranked at 15 on IR. i know i can at least hit 2'47, at least im progressing again|
|Posted by: Tomo Jul 31 2008, 07:13 PM|
this is why i disregard online rank in all due respect.
|Posted by: Takeshi Nakazato Jul 31 2008, 07:17 PM|
|ranking definatly means nothing if ur not good at all tracks and or like some ppl ive encountered, disconnecters|
|Posted by: Tomo Jul 31 2008, 07:18 PM|
|but at least you get a nifty aura out of it!|
|Posted by: Takeshi Nakazato Jul 31 2008, 07:20 PM|
but glowy gassy stuff comming out of my car! im so 1337!
|Posted by: JPLUS Jul 31 2008, 09:45 PM|
|I'm stuck on Tomoyuki. He seems way too hard. This is the first race that I've actually had real trouble on.|
|Posted by: TB_InuYasha_X Jul 31 2008, 10:43 PM|
On that track, just ride the walls.... ;P
Run into them.. you wont lose speed.... that's the only hint I can give.. I had a problem with him on my first try too.. until i figured out how that track works.. lol
|Posted by: DK_2 Jul 31 2008, 11:57 PM|
| FTned the S2K.
feels like a nice car.
WAAAAY different from the DC2 though.
so i need to look a bit more from this car.
|Posted by: JPLUS Aug 2 2008, 05:34 PM|
|Finally finished LOTS and FT'd my GC8. Planning to start running some TA's and try to catch up to you all, haha. And maybe some online.|
|Posted by: Takeshi Nakazato Aug 2 2008, 05:58 PM|
or you can be like me and tommo and not be a wall ramming noob and still run fast times
|Posted by: Silfa Aug 2 2008, 09:45 PM|
|^ lol, thats rich. i hit 2'48 on iro dh wet, and still working at dry dh.|
|Posted by: initial_drifter Aug 3 2008, 01:10 AM|
| darn psn !!! i'm so angry with psn.every times i almost win,psn sign out me .anyone have this problem?
|Posted by: TB_InuYasha_X Aug 3 2008, 09:47 AM|
We should test that theory.
My wall riding vs your non wall riding... and see what works. ;3
|Posted by: Silfa Aug 3 2008, 10:02 AM|
|lol i want you to stream your battle against billy. if you can't beat me on iro dh, what makes you think you can beat him. you should get your team ready first and challenge tokui to a battle.|
|Posted by: TB_InuYasha_X Aug 3 2008, 12:39 PM|
I'm only good on Happo / Tsukuba.
To you guys I'm not good on those tracks, but if I had to make a selection. I do my best on those and I'm still under training, of course. However, In order for me to get better.. I have to watch youtube videos / battle people / ta... and that's exactly what I'm doing.
Plus, I've known AZN Boi Gir for awhile.. *points at FROZA 1 and yes I called it Froza... Froza sucks.. I'm glad i got this game.. lol*
But, Um.. AZN Boi Gir = Takeshi.... o.O;
I need to learn from you two, since you are the best in my books.. o.o;
Got to represent America man. >.>;
|Posted by: Silfa Aug 3 2008, 01:22 PM|
|i never said you weren't on those tracks. anyways, time attacking is probably your best bet. i've watched you play over your stream tv website. another thing, were not the best. there are far more people on this forum who are great. for instance, tomo is good at happo, jd is good at tsukuba, and others from tokui. the others who don't post probably are the same.|
|Posted by: Takeshi Nakazato Aug 3 2008, 03:12 PM|
i actually wanna drive with a sense of racing and not just wallrape is why i drive no wall rape on happo
|Posted by: TB_InuYasha_X Aug 3 2008, 05:26 PM|
What's faster on that track.
Wall Rape or Non' Wall Rape....
And I kind of miss the old style of happo on version 3... Happo is my favorite track on ver 3.. but now its just... depressing..
|Posted by: Silfa Aug 3 2008, 05:37 PM|
|it really depends, wall rape for iro. braking and semi wall raping corners for anything else.|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Aug 5 2008, 01:41 AM|
| so today i just full tuned my gc8.
now i'm starting to tune a s2k. why does it have to cost so much to full tune a car.
|Posted by: JPLUS Aug 5 2008, 09:34 AM|
| I got to D1
but other than that i'm workin on FT'ing a sil80 and then prolly an s2k
|Posted by: MzdaspD Aug 5 2008, 09:57 AM|
|wow, looks like it almost everyone has a s2k but me =o!|
|Posted by: JPLUS Aug 5 2008, 11:22 AM|
|i thought truenos would be more popular than s2ks but it seems like it's the other way around|
|Posted by: Silfa Aug 5 2008, 01:35 PM|
|i think alot of people don't use the Trueno because it was the top car in the arcade.|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Aug 5 2008, 01:36 PM|
|Man if you look on everyones sig, almost all of them are AP1 and when you go online, almost everyone i raced had an FD3S. Those 2 cars are way to overrated|
|Posted by: Silfa Aug 5 2008, 01:40 PM|
| i don't know what to tell you. i got one just because i had one in the arcade. after i FT my mx5, ill be starting my new account. maybe rx8, r34, and evo9.
so i started playing again and i noticed that everyone keeps taking me to iro for some reason even people who I have battled before and seen my times stop taking me there please lol
|Posted by: sannin Aug 5 2008, 04:36 PM|
|back from your breah eh? lol im still on mine, haven't played for about a week now.|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Aug 5 2008, 05:11 PM|
|yeah I know. I've been getting a lot of iro challenges on ranked as well. It pisses me off because we've been TA'ing iro for so long, I'm tired of it..Gets way to fustrating. RX8 is a good all around car I guess, to me it feels really grippy. I'm going to work on my FD and then go try Iro UH with it then I wanna try the S14.|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Aug 9 2008, 12:41 AM|
|i finally beat the game today. it took me so long to beat Tomo on happo. after i beat him everyone else seemed so easy. just made an 86. so far i like it, but why are there three different step 7's?|
|Posted by: DK_2 Aug 9 2008, 01:22 AM|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Aug 9 2008, 01:46 AM|
i think you got it backwards. i'm sure that the first one is turbo. thanks for the help
|Posted by: DK_2 Aug 9 2008, 02:38 AM|
just took a guess. xD
|Posted by: Odie Aug 9 2008, 06:38 PM|
| My day involves checking all the ID episodes from stage 2 all the way to the fourth stage just to get all those darn car number plates of all the cars in the game >.<
I am only missing that damn 180SX... All I know is that it is 11-309 according to a side shot on the fourth stage episode 2 18:17. Anyone know the areas it's from and also the hiragana and the double numbers?
I have everything except for that damn flying chicken >.<
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Aug 9 2008, 11:14 PM|
|wait....... so if you delete a car you still have all the parts you bought for it?|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Aug 10 2008, 09:58 AM|
|I think I'm back from a long break of IDES =)|
|Posted by: Silfa Aug 10 2008, 12:52 PM|
|tomo what is your screenname on PSN, because I just raced someone in a yellow S2000 and took me to Akagi Night with a 86. I don't think that was you though, the person was using the name TOMO and didn't go anywhere. and disconnected, just asking is all, i'm not accusing you or anything.|
|Posted by: razorsuKe Aug 10 2008, 02:42 PM|
| so my friend brought over extreme and I'm running happo pretty good by sorta grinding the inside walls. Then I load up tomo's vid and he runs it clean v2/3 style and my mind is blown, wtf LoL
|Posted by: MzdaspD Aug 10 2008, 11:35 PM|
haha is steven good at IDES? was the 250 stock time yours or his?
|Posted by: Takeshi Nakazato Aug 11 2008, 08:08 AM|
i believe tomo doesnt actually have a name TOMO at all
|Posted by: Silfa Aug 11 2008, 10:12 AM|
| lol just asking cause i've raced a tomo and a tomoko. anyways shaved my tsukuba ob dry from 2'51"7xxx to 2'50"052 kinda upset, at the end was slow for some reason and i was shooting to break 49's.
also why aren't my auras showing during replays. another bug?
|Posted by: Takeshi Nakazato Aug 11 2008, 11:36 AM|
i dont think auras show during replays at all, mine never have
|Posted by: Silfa Aug 11 2008, 11:41 AM|
|really? hmm weird oh well no biggie. hows the rebuilding process going billy?|
|Posted by: Takeshi Nakazato Aug 11 2008, 01:14 PM|
lol i havent been motivated, i only have one car half tuned, no full tunes yet
|Posted by: henshin Aug 11 2008, 02:13 PM|
|I just got the logitech driving force gt WOOT!!! oh man, this thing feels like a champion now I need to find a table/make my own ID-bucket-seat-rig-thing whatever...|

|Posted by: Silfa Aug 11 2008, 10:46 PM|
|finally figured out how Lune from Japan designed his S2000. ill post pictures in the car thread soon.|
|Posted by: DK_2 Aug 11 2008, 10:50 PM|
you replicated it?
|Posted by: Silfa Aug 11 2008, 10:58 PM|
| of course, he's the one that I first saw drive a S2000, that was very unique. the only difference is my rims arent black.
new update tsukuba ob dry 2'49"731

|sup guys, haven't posted for a couple of years or something hahaha! Let alone played any ID up until i saw Ver4 about couple of months ago and also bought IDES 2 weeks ago and been playing a fair bit now. Certainly ALOT has changed O_o|

|Today i got pawned by some guy who uses a red S15 at S1 on Iro DH...he did like a 2'42"xxx O_o those corners he took, my god they were fast. I'm really having trouble even getting under 2'50"xxx on this course with me BNR34. Those really short jumps is kinda tricky for me|
|Posted by: henshin Aug 17 2008, 07:27 AM|
|today I'm making a bit of progress on my akagi UH run with my ae86T, almost hit 2'42 but ended with a 2'43'03x, at least it's slightly better than my 2'43'763 run.|
|Posted by: Joshima_San Sep 1 2008, 06:54 AM|
|Yesterday I beat a S1 rank on my favourate course iro, and i am only C1 rank to!. I was going all out, man i was leading 50 meters from the start, I don't know if that guy was giving me a head start at the start! or was it just lag i don't know. At the 3rd check point where the jumps are at, he managed to be right behind my ass right after i did my jumps. After that I managed to block his ass the rest of the way, and won. After that I posted a best time of 2'51'647 with a FD better then my time attack record of 2'55'854.|
|Posted by: NoRAd_Alpha Sep 4 2008, 03:24 PM|
| Just got the game...
crappy at it
It was shipped to me by my girlfriend, who found it at a second hand shop in japan
|Posted by: TB_InuYasha_X Sep 6 2008, 06:21 PM|
| Reached SS.
-orgasmed over the white aura.-
-lost to a B1 and felt like a B1-
OH WELL.. I'm SS.. >_>; I'm good now.
|Posted by: Takeshi Nakazato Sep 6 2008, 08:28 PM|
its cus rank is garbage, ppl seem to refuse until they get to a track they are good at. so retarded
|Posted by: TB_InuYasha_X Sep 6 2008, 08:32 PM|
I go on all tracks.
But I seem to suck on them all.
I have to keep time attacking and making new cars for those specific tracks.
My FT cars are
Subaru [Bunta's][I forgot the model]
But yeah... I hate that too.. people only battle me when its there home track... well.. now that im ss.. i dont care about ranking anymore.. im going to do unranked and have some fun to be relax'd..
|Posted by: dDrRaGeX Sep 8 2008, 08:39 PM|
| I finally beat(ish) the game on expert with a FT FD. All i have to do
is beat bunta but i'm so mentally exhausted from beating tomo, KT
and Tak (Takumi) (Takumi) in the span of 3 hours (tomo took like 2 hours of tries) that
i'm like SCREW BUNTA. I still have hw to do, i dont wanna blow up.
Man, I think I'm ganna pass out or something.
I guess I'll post my times
Happo OB 2'59 (yeah i BARELY, molecule sized beat tomo)
Akina DH 2'17
Tsukuba (both) around 3'01
I bet I need like a 2"13 to beat Bunta or something
Might I add...

|Posted by: imprezagc8 Sep 9 2008, 01:09 AM|
| so i played online for the first time today. the lag is so bad it's not even funny. one second i'm ahead by 30 meters the next i'm 100 meters behind. wtf?! i some how manage to catch up but then the person i'm racing disconnects.
question - how do you turn boost on/off?
|Posted by: Tomo Sep 9 2008, 05:22 PM|
| yeah I hadn't played in sometime. I do have a few different names on PSN, but I hardly EVER battle, and when I do I am either using Yuri? Tokui or RMagic.
I ft'd r34 and got 2'51 happo OB. maybe ill play a little more again.
|Posted by: henshin Sep 10 2008, 04:03 PM|
|Quite some time ago, I've lost my data which is due in part to a faulty PS3 and overheating. After that I got another PS3 (no I'm not rich, the 1st one was given to me for free), started a brand new save and FT'D the trueno (this was about a month ago which I stopped playing for a while). Today, I battled some people, won some / lost some. I did however bump into a fellow member, Tb_inuyasha_x in unranked mode, and we had a few good battles (he's so far the only psn friend I have) All in all, I think I've done alright getting back into the groove of things|

| today i became rank c3 it took me a while because i was racing ss, s1, a2 people. that sucked. i did get lucky and find someone that was the same rank as me. i did manage to beat an ss rank today. i went to happo (on accident) and he disconnected
one thing that sucked was i was about to race a d3 then i got an error and got disconnected from the psn. it happened to me twice too

| I decided to make an FD the other day, since I'm finding Akagi quite fun lately. So far the car has been pretty easy to drive. The only thing I find annoying about it is its over rev warning beep.
Anyway, I managed to hit 2'39 with it both ways. I'll try to finish FTing it tomorrow.

| Had a good day. It was my first time playing online. Anyway, I got all the way to C2 in one session.
Battled mostly newbs, but I did go up against a few SS ranks. I lost a battle against one on Akagi UH, won with a 3'06 against another on Akina DH D (beating my personal best) and beat another other on Akagi DH D (2'37).
Earned around 250k points... Now I just need another 200k so I can FT my FC.

maybe after i tune that car up i'll start playing online again
|Posted by: icedagger Sep 23 2008, 12:14 AM|
| Finally decided to give Akagi DH D a try again. Managed a 2'33"7xx after a few tries with my new FC. CP4 was kind of screwed up though. I think I can still push it to a low 33 with a few more runs.
I wonder what I should shoot for next: 36 on UH? or 32 on DH?
|Posted by: Silfa Sep 23 2008, 04:07 PM|
|wow tomo quit. damm, oh well I know the feeling. hey tomo do you track your rx8? i've been tracking my Z since I stopped playing.|
|Posted by: icedagger Sep 23 2008, 07:33 PM|
| There goes IDW's happo pro. Take care dude! Your video really helped me out on Happo IB.
Had an interesting match against KAZU on Akagi DH. Real nailbiter. He took the lead at start up and had me on his tail all the way through CP1-CP3 before I managed to squeeze ahead just before the start of CP4. Finishing time 2'35
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Sep 26 2008, 04:58 PM|

| Played a few games last night. Got my ass handed to me by the Happogahara IB D WR holder. (Or at least he had the same avatar as the Happogahara IB DWR holder)
The battle inspired me to finally put some real effort into learning Happo. I managed to lower my times a fair bit:
Happo IB D: 2'47"2xx /w 7-7-7-6-6 DC2(46 spoiled by screwed up CP4)
Happo OB D: 2'49"0xx /w FD -I never could play Outbound well, not even back in V3.
Anyway, I should be trying happo again with my soon to be FT DC2.

|Posted by: icedagger Oct 3 2008, 07:12 PM|
Yep, I do.
Currently trying to get into the top 10 on Akagi DH and Happo IB/OB. I managed to hit #9 on Akagi UH, but somebody has probably booted me off that spot already.
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Oct 6 2008, 11:13 AM|
| wow that is crazy good.
as for me i'm building an altezza. i like the way it handles so far, it's not instant death on wet like how it was in idas ver. 3
|Posted by: icedagger Oct 6 2008, 12:02 PM|
| ^ Thanks,
Hehe, I'm too lazy to make a PSN account and unlock the Tezza and other cars. My ID4 RX8 will have to do for now.
Anyway, I tried attacking Akagi DH D again. After a bunch of tries, I got a 2'33"511 with my FC (Video coming soon; currently processing at youtube). CP2 and 3 were decent compared to my previous runs, but CP1 and 4 were crap. I really need to work on my downhill CP4 consecs!
Dammit. I ran a 2'33"244, and was within 1 second of the WR for a full five minutes before somebody uploaded a 2'32"0xx... Meh...
|Posted by: MzdaspD Oct 8 2008, 06:22 PM|
|Man....not playing for 3 months really mess up your times hardcore...my iro times are so shitty compared to before..|

|Posted by: icedagger Oct 8 2008, 10:38 PM|
| Ok, I just dropped the my Akagi DH D time down to 2'32"9xx. #6 on IR. Hehe. I made the first page of the Akagi DH D rankings!
Still have 400 milliseconds of theory left in CP1+CP2, and I'm pretty sure I can push CP3 even more after I get used to the cornering tech the japs are using... If I get lucky I might be able to crack into the mid or low 32's this weekend.
|Posted by: MzdaspD Oct 9 2008, 06:30 PM|
|my clamp extensions are here. gotta catch up on my times now|
|Posted by: icedagger Oct 9 2008, 07:19 PM|
I actually had a custom table made just for the G25... But I've found that my computer desk works out better, even if I'm stuck with using monitor. Good luck on those times.
|Posted by: MzdaspD Oct 9 2008, 09:02 PM|
|iono...getting my old times back seems impossible now T_T hahaha but I'm starting to work on wet times|
|Posted by: icedagger Oct 11 2008, 11:51 AM|
| So I did a few more TA's on Akagi DH D again, still stuck with the same time. Couldn't hold anything together, but I figured out how to take several of the turns faster. Hopefully I'll be able to crack into the top 3 by tomorrow.
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Oct 11 2008, 04:41 PM|
| just full tunned my altezza. i like this car more than the s2k. i hate the fact that front bumpers and rear spoilers cost so much.
did some ranking battles today, and i just can't seem to get higher than b3. i have been stuck at this rank for a long time
|Posted by: MzdaspD Oct 11 2008, 08:04 PM|
|how is the tezza? I might get it|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Oct 12 2008, 12:38 AM|
it handles good. it doesn't seem to slide out as much as the s2k. kind of slow acceleration in low revs. not to sure what else to say about it. it looks sexy
|Posted by: MzdaspD Oct 12 2008, 08:47 AM|
|Hmmm. I'll work on the altezza after my R32 then, thanks man|
|Posted by: icedagger Oct 12 2008, 08:03 PM|
| So today I did a bit more Akagi.
Figured out how to run a better CP2, but because of the slightly faster speed I'm having trouble keeping my v-turn consistent. The brake point timing seems to have changed, and I'm still getting used to it, but I'm getting 123km/h exits now.
I also blew a possible 32"7xx by crashing on the last turn and getting a 32"924.
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Oct 12 2008, 11:44 PM|
|how fast is your exit at the v turn now?|
|Posted by: icedagger Oct 13 2008, 12:06 AM|
| My best so far is 123 clean on DH. I've been having a bit of trouble timing it though because of the tiny margin for error. Turn half a car length too late and you slam into the outside wall. Turn half a car length too early and you scrape the apex...
I'm starting to get the hang of it though. Did a few runs earlier and managed to get the 123 several times.
Also blew a -0"400 by crashing on the apex of the turn at the start of CP4.
|Posted by: Newb Oct 13 2008, 03:44 AM|
| just did an engine swap for my Trueno
Completed the game
Time attack at Iro DH : 2"52"6XX <- CP1 was bad
* I use the asian version
|Posted by: icedagger Oct 14 2008, 10:38 AM|
| Hmm... Did a few TAs on Akagi DH D. Only one run was of interest though:
First hairpin was slightly slower than usual. I figure it was 120.2. Usually it's 120.7. Managed a faster than usual exit on the 3rd butterfly turn though.
slow exit speed on the L-section kind of ruined this for me.
My fastest CP3 so far, due to a 122 v-turn + 125 non-stalled exit on the next hairpin.
I tightened up my line as much as I could on this run, but in the excitement I crashed on the last turn again. I figured I would get a 2"32"8xx or something, but to my pleasant surprise I got a bigger improvement than I expected.
2'32"924 -> 2'32"560
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Oct 16 2008, 01:07 AM|
|did some ta's on akagi today. still can't do a clean run, i keep hitting walls. the two turns i hate the most are the two right hand turns after the v turn.|
|Posted by: icedagger Oct 16 2008, 03:46 AM|
Are you talking about the "V" shaped hairpins? (2nd and 4th turn after v-turn?)
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Oct 16 2008, 12:40 PM|
|yes. at best my speed for both is 199 or less if i don't hit the wall|
|Posted by: icedagger Oct 17 2008, 10:01 PM|
| Today was a great day. Tuned my roadster a bit (now at 6-6-5-5-4), and ran this (card-name Slowmo):
I think I can probably hammer it down to a high 33.
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Oct 17 2008, 11:56 PM|
| wow! d3 (not like the rank matters) and you are not even full tune. with a miata
isn't the fc3s the best car for akagi down?
|Posted by: icedagger Oct 18 2008, 09:19 AM|
| Well, the miata is currently at the top of the Jap ID4 rankings...
FC's get a "course car boost" on Akagi DH. The top speed for its gears is 1km/h higher than other cars, and it doesn't lose as much speed as other cars when turning sharply. For this reason it pwns CP1 and CP2. It can take the butterfly turns a lot faster than other cars, and it carries this speed into CP2, where it's gears and turning advantage help it retain speed through the s-curves.
It's main failing is its (subjective) crap handling. The car feels really stiff. It doesn't turn really well and tends to slide outwards after exiting a turn. The v-turn is a nightmare at high speeds in an FC (very tiny margin for error), and it's harder to take a good line in CP4.
The main advantages of the Miata are its small size and its handling. In CP3 and 4 it can match exit speeds with the FC while still taking a tighter line. The small size lets it turn earlier without scraping the apex of the turns, and its handling lets it pull off tighter turns.
It doesn't have the course car advantage though, so it gets pwned by the FC on CP1 and 2.
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Oct 19 2008, 01:14 AM|
|so i guess you could say the smaller the better?|
|Posted by: icedagger Oct 19 2008, 05:47 AM|
In that regard, FC is relatively small, but the miata and capp are even smaller.
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Oct 19 2008, 04:23 PM|
|how is the miata? after what you said i might go make one|
|Posted by: icedagger Oct 19 2008, 05:36 PM|
|Mine isn't FT yet, but I can say that it turns well, but is relatively slidy. Fun car to drive.|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Oct 20 2008, 06:26 AM|
|miata is my fav car man!|
|Posted by: DK_2 Nov 10 2008, 12:01 AM|
| It's been a long while since I last played this game. So I gave it a go, I was really craving at the moment too.
Made a new file... and chose an Evo IX.
All I did was TA, specifically Myogi downhill.

|Posted by: divinity Jy Dec 14 2008, 12:42 PM|
Agreed. I used to rape the first 2 section of Akagi DH with my FC but the V-turn always ruined my run back in the day. Because of the Vturn, my best Akagi time was never with my FC.

Well I recently finished tunning my capp and I have been playing online recently.
To me it seems like most of the really good people don't play anymore.

|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 3 2009, 12:45 PM|
haha yeah, I made my new profile without the @panda tag because sadly, racing teams died...haha. I'll be playing a lot more considering that my second semester at school is very slack and I rarely get a lot of homework. Also, I'm going to finish up my G25 resistance/no-clicking mod today so hopefully I can FT at least one car and get my aura back. Man..it's going to take so long to get my iro time back T_T
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 3 2009, 01:09 PM|
| sounds cool. i rarely play now because of school and work, but i always try to play on friday. i figure that is the best time to play and i always have friday off
right now i race under the name 恋人 and i use a purple capp just so i can be different. the times that i do see another capp it is always black. maybe we will run into each other during ranked battles. you would probably win cause i suck.

|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 9 2009, 12:11 PM|
yeah man, pick one car and only one car, and I'll have a Excel file to keep our TA progress. We'll also play for fun online with others who still play on other forums. Sorta like a Project D kind of thing haha
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 9 2009, 04:15 PM|
| i don't want to make a new profile with a new name tho.
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 9 2009, 04:35 PM|
|you dont have to make a new profile with new name|
|Posted by: (FD3S)Driver Mar 9 2009, 04:47 PM|
|you guys are starting up again?|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 9 2009, 04:50 PM|
|damnnn, long time to talk FD3S haha yeah, I sent my ps3 away and lost all my data so I had to make a new profile. How about you?|
|Posted by: (FD3S)Driver Mar 9 2009, 04:53 PM|

|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 9 2009, 04:55 PM|
|oh icic, yeah a lot of games have been coming out that occupied most of my time, but im starting to play ides again when im bored haha|
|Posted by: (FD3S)Driver Mar 9 2009, 04:56 PM|

|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 9 2009, 04:58 PM|

|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 9 2009, 06:28 PM|
|asap. Once I round up some members, I'll start the spreadsheets and IRC. You don't have to make a new profile or specific name tag, its just to improve are skills. Just stick with one car, and you can make other cars for like for fun or online races.|
|Posted by: (FD3S)Driver Mar 9 2009, 06:32 PM|
sure ill be on your team
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 9 2009, 06:34 PM|
haha alright, It's not really a team though, more of a group sort of thing haha and anyone can join without any tryouts or anything
|Posted by: (FD3S)Driver Mar 9 2009, 07:36 PM|
|so far so good i got my braking points back but my timing is a bit off|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 9 2009, 07:43 PM|
|damn, your so pro haha|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 9 2009, 11:23 PM|
|i guess now i'll have to start watching more vids to get better.|
|Posted by: DarK_Mini Mar 10 2009, 12:30 AM|
|LOL when i wanna get a good run i watch someone on youtube then i watch little bit then stop and try it then stop and try it LOL. and yes im SLOW|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 10 2009, 02:44 AM|
|watching vids is the most common thing to do when you want to get better|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 10 2009, 07:47 AM|
OTher than watching videos, you can download ghost cars on the online ranking and try to learn their lines that they are using.
|Posted by: Poznanman Mar 10 2009, 07:53 AM|
Woah, I had no idea you could download ghost cars. I'm definitely going to have to do that. Thanks for the tip which I managed to ignore somehow, though I never check the online ranking. Probably my first mistake.
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 10 2009, 08:01 AM|
|You can only download the first ten from the ranking list I believe. Or if you have friends that also play the game, you can exchange replay files through a USB and follow each other's lines to improve.|
|Posted by: Poznanman Mar 10 2009, 08:06 AM|
Awesome. Thanks again. I started to play IDES once again since my constant playing of SFIV.
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 10 2009, 08:15 AM|
|awesome, I'm hoping to round up more players for a TA Team|
|Posted by: Poznanman Mar 10 2009, 08:23 AM|
I'm down with that for sure. Are you going PM people interested or create a new forum topic once things start to get rolling?
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 10 2009, 10:46 AM|
|well, I'm going to see how things go, I'm going to create a site where we can login and post our times to keep in track how we're doing and everything. Only choose one car to be in the TA team and you don't have to make a new profile with a team tag, I don't care about that. We'll probably just get emperor or redsun stickers for the car we choose or something. haha I'm still planning it out|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 10 2009, 10:51 AM|
|i guess i'm down for this ta team|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 10 2009, 10:57 AM|
|awesomee, so far we got 4 members including me haha|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 10 2009, 11:00 AM|
| nice. hopefully more people will start playing
yeah the first ten ranked people have ghosts that you can download
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 10 2009, 11:08 AM|
|damn, all the times changed so much ever since everyone was playing|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 10 2009, 11:12 AM|
|well when it first came out everyone was all "omg i have to get this game"|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 10 2009, 11:13 AM|
|yup. I actually bought the game for like $80|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 10 2009, 11:21 AM|
wow. i think mine was $59.99
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 10 2009, 11:22 AM|
|in USD plus shipping = $80CDN|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 10 2009, 11:23 AM|
|i see. i just got mine from a local store|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 10 2009, 11:27 AM|
|lucky, Canada sucks at JDM|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 10 2009, 11:46 AM|
yeah. i am lucky that there is a store that sells japanese stuff
|Posted by: Poznanman Mar 10 2009, 01:52 PM|
I paid that much as well. A local dealer was selling IDES for $100 CDN so I thought I got a pretty good deal. Man, I don't think I've ever paid over $80 for a game before.
Though, since it's initial release, IDES has come down in price.
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 10 2009, 02:23 PM|
|wtf? you paid $100? shitt haha,|
|Posted by: Poznanman Mar 10 2009, 02:33 PM|
Oops, no, my mistake. My wording was off. I pre-ordered off of yesasia for $80 CDN, and what I meant to say was that a local game dealer was selling it for $100 CDN. Compared to the local dealers rate I thought I got a good deal. Instead of paying 100, I only paid 80. yah. My bad.
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 10 2009, 02:46 PM|
|that's still a lot of money|
|Posted by: Tomo Mar 10 2009, 03:10 PM|
|i paid 100 when i preordered it from japan haha|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 10 2009, 03:27 PM|
|oh wow?! crazy. thats so much for a game haha|
|Posted by: samtftse Mar 11 2009, 02:43 AM|
|i crashed 10 times or over while playing initial d extreme stage drunk|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 11 2009, 03:09 AM|
|Haha I'll be sure to race you online.|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 11 2009, 08:31 AM|
|hahaha. I raced an S3 last night and I won and I kept getting him on ranking and he kept declining haha|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 11 2009, 10:16 AM|
|i like how you can choose if you want to race someone of not. most of the people online just try to fish you.|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 11 2009, 01:13 PM|
|haha, but you dont get to know their level until the race started|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 12 2009, 01:55 AM|
| true, but that's why i try to remember peoples names. at least for that day
edit: sent friend requests to a lot of people today
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 12 2009, 08:54 AM|
|haha I made a new profile and checked out the AE86T/L and AE85...Damn AE85 is fast! hahaha I'm thinking what i should do with them. I think Imma do N/A with the Trueno, but not sure with the 2 levins. And i noticed that the AE86L, I can choose 2 different rollcages and the 3 engines..which was pretty sweet|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 12 2009, 11:58 AM|
|you can choose three diff. engines for the 86 levin? i would guess turbo, supercharger, and....... i don't know what the third one would be|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 12 2009, 04:00 PM|
| third one is NA..I dont know what to choose for 86/85 levins...I'm sure im going NA for Trueno
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 13 2009, 01:56 AM|
|i would turbo the 85. the 86L ... i would try to go n/a with that|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 13 2009, 08:23 AM|
|haha forsure not N/A for 85.|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 13 2009, 10:46 AM|
|yup. i would want to put as much raw power i could into that car|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 13 2009, 11:02 AM|
|I might turbo 86 levin, not sure|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 13 2009, 11:11 AM|
|it's up to you. once you but that part can you change it?|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 13 2009, 11:15 AM|
|not tune ups. haha Who knows, I might even delete my 86L haha|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 13 2009, 11:32 AM|
|i guess that makes sense|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 13 2009, 12:58 PM|
|It would be better if you were able to change tuneups..and whats the difference between wataru's old rollcage and his new one?|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 13 2009, 07:42 PM|
| what's up with you and car with different rollcages?!

gc8, s2k, 86T, altezza, capp

fd3s, gdb f, evo 9, rx8, mx5
|Posted by: DarK_Mini Mar 13 2009, 08:27 PM|
|Awwwww whats wrong with the rx8 thats like ID's old school|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 13 2009, 08:45 PM|
|RX8 was the very first car i FT, its good|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 14 2009, 10:18 AM|
|i want to finish the gdb f tho. i have never seen anyone race online with one.|
|Posted by: MzdaspD Mar 14 2009, 07:18 PM|
|tell me how it is after man|
|Posted by: imprezagc8 Mar 14 2009, 11:07 PM|
