Can someone take pictures or make a short video explaining/translating the menus? I've been trying to find translations or a guide to creating a license and whatnot. I don't want to waste money figuring it out when my machine is available to play, so I figured I'd ask.


Edit: Double post for the bump, sorry.

Yeah, hang on a sec. If i can get time to go to the arcade in 2 weeks time i will make one, but by then somebody else probably already done it, which in that case i will put it up in the 1st post too.

No rush but our arcade opens on the 15th so sometime before then would be best so we know what we're getting into as soon as we get to play. Me and like 6 of my friends are depending on you haha.

Could anyone clarify why there's no ranking data for the Evo6 or the BRZ yet? Are those cars still locked or something?

Have they been unlocked at all yet? If so if you bought one of the locked cars can you still use them when they're locked again?

To my knowledge, everyone cannot access those cars. I dunno why Sega did this but, eh whatever. Hopefully we, in the US at least, can access them as they are unlocked.

Recently Hakone was unlocked as well as the Tag Team Battle, which was locked before. I have NO idea why they do that.

I dunno about that one. Perhaps? But then again it IS in the system ready to go, hell you can test drive them in the RivalSide mode. (Well except the BRZ since it's a more modern car.)

Everything a new player should need to know. License/car creation would be a huge help. After that I'm sure we could figure out some of the other stuff.

He means like the game's main menus for navigating, especially purchasing and modifying cards/cars, and for getting to different modes, and pointing out important things on each screen, since we'll have it only in Japanese and all anyone here speaks in English.

the green middle indicator means there is both world battle and story for tag. Blue is for story (offline)/ instore only.

Looks like the middle icon in the indicators says Tag; it probably indicates that Tag battle is available.

Okay guys, had a go at the game myself, so here is my review.

The new physics is pretty different. Now driving through a sharp curve does not necessarily means you just have to turn the steering to the max.

Instead, turning the steering all the way will actually yield less angle than turning it half. Also note that there is also speed penalty on turning the wheel too much. Your car can slow down by a lot if you try to turn like you have a spec 1 car in idas7.

The most ideal steering is to NOT steer much, and try to use brake and accel to turn your car.

I think this is SEGA's attempt to mimic the concept of load transfer, which you don't turn the steering much, but rather shift the car's weight for lateral acceleration, and thus turn the car, an advanced technique used by God Hand, and most of the pro racers in real life.

Given it's your first time, wouldn't you be running a low spec car and therefore your concept of the physics be inaccurate?

Well for the lower specs I can vouch for that. Again, what he said is only for lower specs, not the higher ones. The game does penalize you at a certain turning degree, so steering as little as you can is the best way to come out on top.

Once you hit full spec...well that's a different story. Brake aceeling and all that schmuck. SonicSP if you comment how brake aceeling Is catching on...um...I'll slap you via internet...I have nothing else to retaliate with.

Is complete car the same as low spec car?

I try play with complete car. And it's slow

I've got a question about game physics. Does this game have a penalty/boost system like D4/5/6 or is it a "drive as fast as you can without crashing" type like D3/7. Not counting battle boost AKA boost from being behind opponent in battle of course.

I currently have a Spec 2 car and I'm curious on how should I go about it. On one end, I don't really think I need to do Brake Acceling yet most of the time but I'm not sure whether I'm being penalized for not doing it. I see some players I'm battling braking at places they don't really need to (I can tell they're not full tuned yet since I've fought a FT car earlier today) and I can't help but feel like its D4, where they'll penalize you for not braking at certain places. I'm aware that turning really slows you down at this spec, but I just want to confirm/deny whether there's some sort of penalty system involved.

Basically, I'm just not sure whether I should be BC-ing or Brake Acceling for now while I'm at the power specs. I also assume the YouTube videos are full tuned so they're not going to be helpful until I reach their physics at higher specs.

All cars are slow at first. You'll need to upgrade it before it becomes fast. This can be done by spending points earned from races or just but and use D-Coins.

The arcade I play at was having a offer, so I've put 60 bucks into my car, spammed some D Coins right now I am at 2 upgrades into SPEC-5, and the speed penalty while steering is still very significant, except on hakone(hillclimb), which had somewhat much less speed penalty, turn fully could bring you from 206km/h to 203km/h
