    Sweet Odin, it's amazing what PD had locked away in GT1's coding. Xenn, you mind PM'ing me details about where you get your info from?

    The Viper GTS texture also says "POLYS" on it. It looks like it would say "Entertainment" below it but it's too small to actually make out the letters anyway, even if you were all zoomed in.

    Also does anyone know if this texture is somewhere on SSR11?

    Their were 3 un-used music tracks in the game that may have been for 3 un-used car makers.

    One of them lets just called it no name 1 has a kind of TRD feel to it and no name 3 has a Nismo feel to it

    Why the secrecy?

    Their license to use the song in the game was probably rejected, but they still have those songs in the game, but not in the copyright.

    Unknown Track 1


    Unknown Track 2


    Unknown Track 3


    They were all featured in the Gran Turismo Soundtrack for some reason.

    Very interesting find! For what it's worth, I think they sound like;

    Track 1 - Alternative to post-race summary
    Track 2 - Alternative to track selection in arcade mode or event selection in GT Mode
    Track 3 - Dealing with something like the replay theatre, or some sort of memory card based screen

    Interesting tracks, they sound like CD audio and not sequenced music.

    I'll see if there's possibly any more of them.

    No wonder those three tracks were not used in the game. They're not as good as the versions used in the game. :sly:

    I dig those tracks, but they don't seem to fit in with the rest of GT1's menu music.

    Cool! More POLYS stuff, anyway phone texture is in SSR11 but it's yellow. It is also in SSR5, again in yellow.

    That is why I was thinking they were more of a car tuner based track.

    It could have been a diffuse map, bump map or unused one.

    I'm told the Japanese button says something that would translate to "Produced."

    Music №1 - some kind of remixed Mitsubishi music.
    Music №2 - some kind of remixed music from arcade menu.
    Music №3 - dunno yet, but I have dejavu feeling about it...

    The 工 part means engineering I think.

    Still trying to decode the rest.

    Which could lead to the suggestion that it means 'purchase' instead of 'buy'. Or 'already purchased' instead of 'already bought', if you factor in the english alongside it.

    But I don't know my Kanto from my Makankasappo when it comes to Japanese so it's a speculative guess.

    When I tried rogo-test it appeared to be Autumn Ring Mini with lighting parameters changed, perhaps to test shading and the effect of "dirt" on cars.

    IIRC, the pits were open, but your car went sideways if you tried to go into the pit.

    Sounds interesting. May I ask, is a video possible? Or some screenshots?

    EDIT: - You knew someone was going to ask. :lol:

    I'll chip in with the consensus and say that 82 posts and 5 pages in 4 days for a game as 'small' and technically limited as GT1 is good going.

    Keep it up, community.

    That reminds me, I need to get a new copy of GT1.

    To EB Games!

    I knew about rogo-test when I read Sportwagon's race journals and stuff on his GT2toXS site.

    Forget my previous post. It has just occurred to me that I have in fact seen rogo-test before. :dunce:

    I just tried going into the pits, but the car controlled like normal. It might be just the NTSC version that does it, i'm not entirely sure.

    Edit:



    A video for those who are curious.

    Me too. It's funny how nobody thought to make a GT1 version years ago when HACKr started the GT2 thread.

    I started the GT2 thread because of all the rumours and hints within the game itself. I didn't go for GT1 because all I knew at the time was the circle 'END' track and that's about it. GT1 wasn't partially unfinished int he same way GT2 was.

    BTW, I heard about "rogo test" too, but... I also heard that one of the guys found it by mistake: the last hex numer was wrong. Sadly I can't remember what opens original code and where is video (YouTube is too large). :\

    If these were real, GT1 would be... awesome. :D

    These tags looks like it was designed for Arcade Mode, IMO. ;)
