    A shame with such a good weather :)

    I have tried to activate my (2 year old) AR2v2 for the first time but can't even get it to work. :sly: Is there a manual existing?

    Who cares about weather when you have GT4P? :p

    A video clip of the M5 at the Driving Park. I just had to try the BMW at a tight track like that.

    I don't get my AR2v2 to work. It's the first time I use it, so could someone maybe spend a minute to check what I do wrong, or what I forget to do?

    - PS2 memory card in left tray, AR2v2 in right,
    - I introduced the converted master (M) code, converted from codejunkies :
    T32G-6J5V-G813C
    2X43-XBVC-VPZ3U
    XHNG-EE9K-26NB6
    K6V5-FFMP-QJZ58
    M9H6-Z2G0-1DFUH
    into :
    E1FC4342 BDAB4ED2
    EEB5B03E BCF2E146

    - I also introduced a converted car code for slot 1 (Celica 1970) converted from :
    5EMY-FC3G-2PGXZ
    YTD4-TCKD-531BR
    JXG3-BTEB-CVJ2C
    into :
    DE03A25A BCA99B2A
    - I press "start"
    - I choose "with codes"
    - I insert GT4P disc
    - I press X to start
    The screen says "updating codes"
    - I am waiting hopefully ...
    When the GT4P disc wants to boot, the screen becomes black and remains black :guilty:

    Remark : probably I need the Arcade Car Modifier Codes Slot 1 (Serie Cars):
    WXXX-YKE0-Y39QG somewhere, but the program does not convert these. Could that be the problem?

    I read some remarks about m and M codes, what are they for?

    Thanks for your time!

    You're supposed to leave out only the first line after converting the code into v2 format, not half of them.. for example:

    Master code (M)
    0E3C7DF2 1853E59E
    EE8EFC9E BCA99C80

    Replace first Car into CELICA 1600GT `70
    0E03A25A BCA99C9A
    DE03A25A BCA99B2A

    Thanks a lot Speed Drifter, I typed in your codes, and got the Celica! Great car btw :tup:

    Then I used the first line of your car codes for other cars (as the conversion with MAXConvert v0.6 only gives me one (the second) line, and I got the Datsun Bluebird and Honda 1300.

    But ...

    I don't see where your master code comes from, but I suppose I need this for all the changes in cars or tracks?

    I don't understand neither where you got that first line for the Celica, as the converter program only gives me the second line.

    So I guess I need another "first" line to get converted codes for race cars in slot 11 and another one for other tracks?

    Would it be possible to post this codes too, as I don't see a way to convert them myself?

    Thank you VV, this code worked (with help of the first line by Speed Drifter) :) :tup:

    On street tyres, there's more realism in the replays with this car, and driving the GT becomes much more challenging and fun :tup:

    This is VV's Ford GT MAX code fixed, the 'H' dropped off the end making it invalid.

    8VUZ-M1Y6-7MDCV
    YZQW-NRBV-WBZTH

    VV if you could post the cuda code using the SL55's physics it would be great (it's a great looking car/beast).

    Cheers :tup:

    I've gone and merged VV's codes so they aren't stand alone anymore for the AR MAX. Also I've added a few cars in so you can use Road/Normal/Sports or Racing tyres where you usually couldn't. I could add the rest if anyone wants them but otherwise I'll leave them as is for the time being because I'm really limited on time (learning MIPS assembly to decrypt the "core.gt4" file which is taking up all my time at present). :(

    These are a mixture of VV & Codejunkies codes so I take no credit for them, all I did was make them work seamlessly with the existing Prologue codes (correct categories/sub categories).

    BTW I have a question. Does anyone know the code to increase the number of laps to 5 or 10 instead of 2 laps (for Tsukuba/New York/Fuji/Citta di Aria no AI). And possibly also a code which allows you to race with the roof off cars that support it (see car selection screen) i.e. MR-S S Edition, MX-5, SL55 AMG etc it should be possible as theres models in the car selection screen without them.

    Cheers :tup:

    Good job MrGrumpy. :tup:
    I'm confused for the missing "H" at the end of the Ford GT code. :ouch:

    Actually, I have no solution for the codes that you search (to drive the Cuda, to increase the number of laps, to drive with the roof off) . :guilty:

    There's something weird with the Datsun Bluebird. In 3rd person view (close behind), you're glued against the trunk of the car :crazy:

    The other views are OK.

    The car sticks too much to the road imo. With the little power available, there's not much excitement to drive it. I couldn't finish one lap on Fuji as I quickly became too bored.

    Hope it improves (more distant view and worse handling :) ) in the final game.

    Aren't there codes known to change the distance your behind and above your car in 3rd person view?

    The short view is too close to get a proper view of the track and in the other I'm getting dizzy of being wiped from left to right in rally mode :dopey: :sick:

    Ideal would be a code to increase the distance and angle from the second view to those of the 3rd, but keeping the position relative to the car as in the 2nd.

    I have AR Max Evo (NTSC U.S.) GT4 Prologue (NTSC Japanese) I've managed to find the (M) code and all cars/lessons code for GT4 Prologue NTSC Japan, but I need them in Action Replay Max format. I've used MAXCONVERT but when I enter the (M) code in my AR Max it says not a master code!

    AR2v2 (Tested & works)

    Another Mastercode added, if the old one didnt work for you the other will probably work!

    I made some laps with the R390GT1 on the Grand Canyon Tarmac track. Some replay screens looked like coming out of the last editions of the Targa Florio or the Tour de France. Nice nice :)

    no, but on Citta di Aria if you have opponents on and difficulty on Pro.. you'll get 5 laps on Citta di Aria and there are no opponents

    or you can always turning your car around at the start of the race, do 8 laps backwards turn around and you'll get 10 laps forwards ..

    with the AR codes.. am I able to download them onto the max drive?
    It won't let me get new update thought my PS2 NA broadband connection but it will let me use Max Instant Messenger :confused:
    or... do I have to type all the codes in? :odd:

    Yeah I know about the opponents option (works with Grand Canyon too), but it doesn't solve the problem with Tsukuba & Fuji though.

    Umm with the newer AR MAX's I think you can. I own the older AR Max (v3.14, bought ages ago) so if I wanted to use the updates I need to copy the ".bin" file from the MAX Drive onto an actual PS2 memory card and the AR MAX uses them from there (bit of a waste). The AR MAX online update component doesn't work for anyone in Aus (I'm guessing it's a timeout problem, AU -> UK AR MAX is not allowing enough time for the response).

    Just type the codes in you need, that's all I do.

    VV thanks for the reply.

    Cheers :tup:

    I've found a way to change the number of laps for the races with opponents (to replace 2,3 or 5 laps).
    But it's not a simple manipulation. It's not an AR Code. You must build a rip of the Pal Game and put a patched file in this rip.

    And I've not found how to change the number of laps for the races without opponents (the famous 2 laps). :guilty:

    on the codejunkies forum people in the US, UK, Germany & Canada are also having the same problem.. :boggled:

    VV or MrGrumpy, are you able to turn the asphalt roads into gravel roads?

    Hi!

    I have problems changing the New York track into Grand Canyon Tarmac. I've tried both codes, but the cars start above the track, and when you fall down, the road isn't tarmac...

    Can somebody helpme out? I've tried these codes:

    Arcade Extra Tracks
    . Grand Canyon (Tarmac)
    17DT-40TR-ZHJ3U
    H809-84R0-9WJM3
    4N5X-76Y1-47GX2

    replace new york into grandcanyon_road

    ARMax :
    EEXP-XH9E-BYU74
    H809-84R0-9WJM3
    4N5X-76Y1-47GX2

    Thanks,

    J
