Nascar Racing 1999 Edition Game Cheats
Faster Taladega speeds:
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create
a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Enter the game
directory and find the "tracks/taladega/taladega.txt" file.
Use a text editor to edit this file. Locate the line that
starts with "SPDWY" and change the first number from "1" to "0".
Speeds over 230 miles an hour may now be obtained.
Tip: There are no "tricks" to becoming a good NASCAR driver.
As in the real world, it takes perseverance and hour upon hour
of seat time. And a good, long examination of the wonderful
manual/strategy guide is something you must do.
Tip: If you can perfect your line on a given track so that
it rarely, if ever, varies, you've gone a long way toward
mastering the smoothness and consistency this game requires.
Furthermore, once you've begun your garage work, you need to
know that extra half second was the result of better tinkering,
not better driving.
Tip: When making modifications to your car, always make just
one or two at a time--that way you'll know what helped and
what didn't. Also, save each newly altered car under a new
filename or you'll be screwed faster than Bill Clinton.
Tip: When it comes to controlling high-end racing sims,
joysticks blow. Go out and get yourself a good wheel-and-pedal
unit. Right now.
Tip: Of all the data the game supplies, perhaps the most
critical is the tire temperatures. What you want your setup
to do is keep them even across the width of each tire after
a bunch of hot laps. Doing so means more rubber is contacting
the ground, and your tires, in all likelihood, will last longer
and be more effective. Of course, a lot of factors go into even
tire temps, so don't be disappointed if it takes you some time,
perhaps several hours or more, to get it right.
Tip: On the track, a fast frame rate is absolutely fundamental
for detecting minor fluctuations early enough to correct them.
Turn off nonessential graphics options or use the game as a good
excuse to upgrade your computer or video card.
Tip: Starting a race with no pace lap means you'll get a good
chance at picking up lots of early positions.
