Jul 7 2004, 09:06 PM
Very nice, any chance of a dual-release?
I was thinking one being like a booster to those who already have the first and the second being both packs for chumps like me who missed out the first time.

I'm sure it's floating around, I mean it always was. I'd just love to see them together for people like us who didn't jump at it the first time around.

Jul 8 2004, 12:32 AM
Yeah this is premium content, but it's been leaked before on here without any problems. It's good for offline play only.

What do you mean by double posting ??
Jul 8 2004, 05:14 AM
sorry bout that lol
Jul 8 2004, 06:37 AM
what would be cool is if someone finds a way to resign the Downloadable Content with the eeprom that you use making it playable without any kind of modification to the files , even play them on live.
Jul 8 2004, 08:09 AM
the official announcement was made about 11 hours ago
The Cars - 8 Additions
Subaru 22B STi - One of the most famous Subaru's ever made, this wideboy will give you a run for your money. It is the car all Subaru owners want, and now you can get it too.
Ariel Atom 2 - This light weight open wheeled car uses the Civic Tyre-R engine and couples it with a superlightweight frame and rear wheel drive control. This car handles like a dream, a really nice dream indeed
Dodge RAM SRT-10 - The latest supertruck from Dodge and a world record holder. This extreme beast has an 8.3 litre Viper engine to push it over 150mph. And yes, it is in fact a truck.
Dodge Challenger R/T Hemi - 1970's ultimate muscle car. It's a Dodge Challenger, need we say any more?
Ferrari 612 Scaglietti - The latest car to leave Ferrari's garage. Boasting 199mph and a fresh new design, this car, 4 seats or not, is still an incredibly fast machine built for speed and style. It achieves both admirably.
Volkswagen Nardo - With 600+ horsepower in a unique W12 engine, the Nardo is VW's supercar competitor. Another addition to the big boys with it's sleek curves and AWD acceleration, how will it fare against some of the fastest cars in history?
Porsche 911 GT2 Clubsport - The new GT2 in all it's glory. Tighter handling, tweaked performance, and the unmistakable 911 body, it is an ultimate track Porsche.
Radical SR3 Turbo - Last, but definately not least, the Radical SR3 Turbo. Currently the laptime record holder for the Nurgburgring, this Suzuki Hayabusa bike engine powered track monster makes up for it's lack of top end grunt through insane acceleration and unparalleled grip. This car is on rails, will the TVR drivers be able to hold it off?
he said it would be out TODAY.. so any time now
Jul 8 2004, 11:42 AM
man i dont even have pack one, goes to show you how out of the loop i am,, wow ill accept pm's from those who can direct me to the 1st release.
those pics looks sweeeet!
mmuuhahah more cars to mod!
Jul 8 2004, 11:53 AM
one would think M$ would sell a booster disc or somthing for like 25 bucks and make some bank off those without live...like me
i got the extra cars from the last release...but damn it i want the tracks too!!
Jul 8 2004, 10:55 PM
ill have to find a source some where that lists oxm disk content to see if i can find the first release,, does anyone know what was in the first release ?
damn those cars looks great i want this..
shit... arrgg nope im not paying for live service,, ggrrrr....
Jul 8 2004, 11:22 PM
It's on an OXM disc, it's Xbox live only. I agree MS should make discs you could buy with these add-ons too, but I think their worry is you'd see massive piracy of those as well.
Jul 9 2004, 01:07 AM
the piracy would only involve those whom have downlaoded the game. which is a small fraction of the total xbox piracy.
its a smart move financially as it gets people to subscribe to live.
but live isnt THAT great and there arent that many games worth playing online.
and the first guy that says halo ill poop on you.
the first and now this second pack will show up.
not to mention the fact that simply dumping them into your hard drive game folders in the appropriate folders may work,, and it may not work,,
then simply altering the game ini to reflect that these are now single player cars and maps. and setting those acrs and maps to the appropriate game modes.

What i meant was if you have a booster disc you can buy for $5 or you can download it for $5 I think most people would buy the $5 disc then distribute it to all their friends, even if the agreement was for a single-user license.
Jul 10 2004, 01:18 PM
I have the paris car pack, but i don't know how to get tracks(if there were any)...anyway, is this new content already out? 10X

Jul 16 2004, 12:50 PM
damn it i want this!!!!!
if someone has the paris pack i can upload it to my web space and people can grab it, same for the new pack.
depending on how large they are.
i dont even know how big it is.. or the paris one.
or if not that i would be happy to share it if someone were to get me a copy
Jul 18 2004, 12:05 PM
Car pack 2.0 is out.
Jul 19 2004, 12:57 AM
where ? the usual places ?
Jul 19 2004, 01:00 AM
ok i got the paris pack,, the original one i think.
but the paris tracks arent available on single player.
cars are cool F150 lighting,,, ferarri dino... old camaro and firbird....
and lots more.
unless this is the new pack ???
Jul 19 2004, 01:05 AM
cool im grabbing this now..
i dont know how i could have missed this.. addon cars in pg2/.
where the hell was i
Jul 19 2004, 01:47 AM
bloody hell the radical is insane
Jul 19 2004, 03:25 AM
how am i supposed to use these.. whenever i select one of the new cars it puts me in this area in dc i think it is.. like a big paved area, but when i try to drive on the streets away i fall through the ground?
Jul 23 2004, 06:47 PM
i dont find the
|1 Very Fast Bonus Car..... |
which one it is ???
all black subaru ???
Jul 23 2004, 07:24 PM
sure wish i could get that paris pack...... cough cough...
and those cars sounds friggin awesome!!!
wish i could get the new tracks to work for single player.
cars are available for time trials,, so,, not much fun except for ghost racing. but thats the original car/track pack.
which is odd cuz it has paris tracks in it, just cant use them
unless the guy who gave me the pack can verify that it was the paris pak,,, and not the original pak...
the f150 is new,, ferarri dino,, uhm old camaro,, is this the old or new pack guys., i dont see the dodge ram or the viper or the other cars...

The one very fast car is the Lotus 340R, i think it is in the roadster class, it has rediculous stats. the maker of the 2.0 pack just editied its stats though so nothing a normal person couldn't do.
Aug 19 2004, 10:38 AM
so what's up guys, is it possible to get access to the long beach cars on hdd, or not?
i mean you can't simply use the known tutorial for paris cars because you have to create a new car group (like supercars, track specials...), and i don't know which id i should use (like for paris cars: id=1014)
Please i wan't to get those cars running.
And there is no way to say that i should read the forum cause i did and there was nearly nothing about how to get the long beach cars workin
Aug 19 2004, 09:49 PM
Works on the hdd? Sure it works on the hdd. Thats where it lands when downloaded from Live.
How to get it working? Ftp your xbox/pgr2 folder and compare the files there with the files you have got in your hand.
Aug 20 2004, 09:45 AM
yeah i know xb live brings the cars onto e:/TDATA (or UDTATA, whatever...)
there is no problem with getting the cars, yeah i got them but now if i wan't to transfer all the long beach cars on my second xbox i go like in the manual of paris cars.
i have to create a new car-category (like i said, e.g. tracks specials = car category), otherwise i can'T use my long beach cars, can i? (except i already got the live pack on THAT xbox)
so please how can i create such a car category? as i said it was simple with the paris cars cause in the manual you could read how to create the category.
thx for help
edit: or maybe i transfer my profile from xbox1 (where i already can play with long beach cars) to xbox2, so the cars from the update folder are no longer locked (explanation: you always load them for free via xbox live when pgr2 says there's an update available and you just pay 5$ for the license to use them)
Aug 20 2004, 04:33 PM
Have you paid 5$ for the download from live or have you downloaded it free some where else? Its no shame to tell, hehe.
If you download it from Live this should be done automaticly.
If not, I've sendt you a spesific list how to import the cars in the menus.
And just for the record:
pak_hrd files goes in /Cashe/cars/
pak goes in /Cashe/objects/
camera_settings and dcontentcars goes in /CarDynamics/
dat, xwb, LongBeach inis, and sterio.ini goes in /data/audio/
CarColours.Ini, CarKeys.Ini, Cars.Ini, Cities.Ini, Classes.Ini, Manufacturers.ini, races.ini, and Long Beach Frontend Maps.dat goes in /Frontend/
Edit: But if you paied for the content via Live, its saved in your Live account, so you can download it with no further charge as many times you like. Just insall your Live account on your other Xbox.
Aug 20 2004, 05:10 PM
i didnt use:
Cities.Ini, Manufacturers.ini, races.ini, Long Beach Frontend Maps.dat
i still got all my cars working of course...
what use are these files?
i thought the new maps didnt function correctly?
did i miss somthing?
sorry i havent read up onthis sence the first pack.
Aug 20 2004, 05:48 PM
I'm sure you didn't for just making a new car class.
Aug 21 2004, 08:26 PM
I have the Paris and Longbeach Expansions FTped from my other xbox and I got the Paris cars on but when i try to put the carcolors.ini in it freezes on start up. I have made my own colors and had PGR2 work. The cars work (I eddited there colors)
With the longbeach I put the cars in and I see the Lonbeach Catagory but when i Highlight it the game freezes. and when I add there colors the games freezes on start up?
What am i doing wrong?
Aug 21 2004, 10:52 PM
Dude. Never edit carcolours.ini. First, only your local xbox is going to see the colour you have changed. Second, you're most likey to fuck the whole thing up.
It will, when done corretly, show ok on your xbox, but if you ever system link or go live you should remember that all your car info, etc., is put in an arrey and sent to the reciever wich doesn't have the same values. This means that you'll be driving with your own customized car colour, but the others will see a diffrent colour.
If you add or change the order of one colour, every single colour is going to be show as different for your opponents.
In short words, if you want it shown correctly, the edited file must be identical on all xboxes you are linking with.
If your xbox freezes you fucked it. There are so many followups on how to install the content, where to place the files, and how to edit it. If you haven't managed it based on whats written, god knows how can help you.
Aug 22 2004, 12:47 AM
Well then... There only car colors fuck em
Aug 22 2004, 12:51 AM
Would the knowledge gained by hacking this pack be useful to hack Xbox Live content for other games?
Aug 22 2004, 12:52 AM
You can use one colour on annother car tho. Open cars.ini and look at the end of each car. If there is a colour on one car you'd like to use on annother, find the car with the colour, look at the colour name, copy the text and past it on to the car you like. No worries for placing here, cars.ini is not put in an arrey as carcolours.ini is. So go ahead and mix cars and colours.
Aug 22 2004, 04:04 AM
idk Im keeping my custom colors they work for all DLC and other cars with out crashing... and system link, so I can live without the DLC colors
