So why did Ria's car start races upside down anyway?

Hi, I go by Raion these days and my story with Rollcage starts with the PC demo on a magazine's pack-in CD. I was very intrigued by the game's puzzling description, and had to go to my cousin's place to play it, since I still owned a 486 those days.
In retrospect, I don't think Daytona was the best track choice to showcase Rollcage's entire bag of tricks, but I instantly loved it none the less, and played the demo so much I found out it would pull redbook audio from any CD in the drive and the trick to boost start before getting the full game.
To this day it still stands as my favourite battle racer, and was very happy to find Rollcage Redux and read some of the behind the scenes (25fps is not a smooth update, shame on you).

I didn't care much for Rollcage Stage II: I was just shocked at the changes, namely the loss of personality AI drivers. I don't know if it was projection on my part or if the different stats really did change they way they drove, but I would always laugh at Lenny flying off corners and rage at Tony for ramming me off the track with barely any effort. That and a couple other factors meant that I never did give it a honest chance. I was young.

By the time I got around backing the kickstarter, the decision to cancel it was already made, I'm sorry for that. But I'm glad you guys are sticking by it and I sincerely hope you're gonna drive over a speed pad and gain some momentum.
Waiting for the early access, waiting for the game. Meanwhile I'll try to overcome my social anxiety and take part in the racing events and eventually contribute to Grip's community and feedback (everyone's a critic).

See ya racers.
Possibly.

Hey all, I'm (actually) PhrickPhaze!
When signing up, I misspelled my username!

-one awkward introduction later-

Anyway, I'm hailing from Sweden and have been an avid gamer since I can remember. Haven't seen a lot of good arcade racers lately but then I stumbled upon GRIP and was blown away. Really stoked to see this game happen.

@PhrickPhaze
Welcome aboard and look no further. Hopefully Grip will be as awesome as we all hope to be. And I have noticed a steady decline in good arcade racers. Simulators are the new chest high wall cover based shooters for the racing genre.

@yelloquiet
Thanks a bunch!
Yeah, I'm really rooting for this game. The whole simulator fad has kind of (at least tried to) replaced everything in the racing genre, it seems.
As said, I really hope this game puts arcade racers on the map, it surly has the potential to.

@PhrickPhaze
Btw, check out ridge racer type 4, revolt, and rollcage if you want some good arcade racers. You can find a redone versions of rollcage 1&2 A good portion of the fanbase for GRIP are also huge rollcage fans since GRIP is a spiritual successor.

Thanks for the links! I'll be sure to check them out, and I'll join the Steam group.
Yeah, that's what I've seeing; Rollcage is a pretty big influence on the developers and the fans.
I also remember a rather unknown PC arcade racer called Mad Trax from the 90's, I think that's the game that got me hooked on the genre.

Hello, I'm Similii and I'm a backer of the project (Tuner Edition!!!)
The first Rollcage was one of my first video game and seeing GRIP on specialized website was a big hope for me to find again the fun of a Rollcage game.
You all have the greetings from France and all the staff of this EPIC video games have my great support, can't wait to test your games guys!!
If you want to be grammar nazi to me, just do it, that will improve my english :3

Re: Meet & Greet

Postby Falkerz » Wed Nov 11, 2015 8:04 am

Welp. Late to the party doesn't really cover me, as I've had an account for a few months now (yeah, I'm kinda like that). Falkerz is the handle, I prefer the abbreviation Falk or Fal, just because it's easier.

I started with Rollcage S2 when I was about 6 (so pretty damn soon after release) on a little P4 box. My god was I in heaven. Then for some reason I think I stopped (Scramble was too bloody hard) and it sat for a few years. Then my beloved Uncle bequeathed his PS2 unto myself, with a (sadly, GOUGED copy of RCS2) when I was about 8 or 9. This rendered the saving feature un-usable. And the music was fooked. I had to use the access codes for my progress.

Since then, the P4 box was moved to beiger pastures, and the PS2 was sold for tuppence (actually a fairly accurate price I got for it). Then, the nostalgia started to hit home.

It had been something like 6 years since I'd played Rollcage Stage 2, and I had just come accross the original PC disc for Stage 2. My heart was literally melting at the sight of such a beautiful specimen, and I immediately threw myself into trying to resurrect the game. Oh dear god did I have my work cut out for me.

Most of you are probably thinking, "he googled it, found codemonkey and was a happy little lamb". NONOnonononononononono. That's the normal person thing to do. I did it my way. Which involves spending about 30 minutes finding the latest version of Dx7, and Dx9, to try install on Windows 8, (I had somehow managed it at one point under Vista---

Sorry, I just vomitted at the mention of the V. You know, because it scanned Sys32 and tried to delete itself that one time. Under Windows Defender. Anyways, I was looking for Dx to run RCS2, but Win8 didn't want to play. So, what do I do? I grab every copy of Windows I can. Literally. 95, 98, ME (which I didn't try), XP, XPx64, V, and try to get that thing working. I even grabbed MSDOS 6.2.

Those beautiful old machines, they just won't play nice. I wanted to try 95, but Hyper-V just can't slow itself down enough to make the mouse semi-usable with that. 98 won't install in a reasonable amount of time (I left it for something like 4 hours and it had only prepared the 24GB Vdisk by about 10%). XP doesn't like Dx7, or seem to want Dx9 either. And V, well, that just went to high hell, with random password fookups, arsey-ness and hate inducing rage.

So, I can't run RCS2, and I've wasted about 3 days on this. TIme to step back, and look for a different angle. If only I could emulate this...

Well, I'm sure you can see where this is going. Grab a copy of the RCS2, load use ePSX and get going. It works pretty well. But it's still not quite the same. So I hop onto eBay, and find the only copy listed. And I snaffle it. The other guy was bidding for about £6, I was prepared to go to £20. Damn was I happy that the one time a Royal Mail 2nd Class envelope arrived the next day. Such an Immaculate looking copy, with the original manual. Sooooooo goddam happy.

[It's at this point I realise that this is a LONG post, but dammit I'm gonna finish this story of passion!]

So that was ok for a bit, I breezed through the Type 1 Campaign, but I wasn't enjoying the hassle of ejecting the disc from my PC all the time. BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD!

I can't specifically remember how it happened after that for a bit, but I ended up going back to it, and running a different search. I think I was aware of Grip at this time and got pointed towards CodeMonkey. Mother of God was my world a better place after that. I grabbed all the things. I installed them, And I played for about 3 hours straight. I was so goddam happy. I love it I love it I JUST LOVE!

I HAVE THE NEED FOR SPEED AND IT CANNOT BE SATIATED WITH MEDIOCRE DRIVING GAMES! I NEED TO ENGAGE THE DOUBLE-UP TURBO ON REPUBLIC LOOP AND BECOME ONE WITH THE SKYWAY!

I was also incredibly upset when the kickstarter was cancelled, as I had set my heart on 3D printing ALL THE CARS and painting them. SOmething which I've never done before. I just hope to either get access to the in the future (more or less irrespective of cost) or to draw my favourites and print them. Namely the Claw Fist from Richter. And many of the Vostok's.



As for other things about me, uhm, ask me?
