    Hmm...I think you just answered your own question.
    But just for clarification, no ROM links are allowed on this forum.

    I'm just taking a guess here but I take it you are one of those people who say the wrong things at the wrong time...

    Anyhoo I'm glad to see some actual progress in rom dumping and that NeoFlash can actually give people a reason to buy their product. Personally though I'm just buying a PassMe and waiting for some more progress in hardware. After all, I guess things can only get better for DS.

    Shouldn't the topic be #0005: Ridge Racer DS (E)? Just asking.

    So is this supposed to be R: Racing, or Ridge Racer?

    It has a piktor of a girl from R: Racing on the box, but it says Ridge Racer, so I'm conflicted. I hate Ridge with a passion, but I love R: ...

    Portable R: would give me a reason to buy a DS, while portable Ridge will make me care just as little as I did before.

    Hm, finally some more dumps, the programmers can now work more on their emulators for the ds, and flashcart development can continue [​IMG]

    No. They really aren't. The R: Racing engine is almost completely different to the Ridge Racer engine. Ridge is more arcadey, while R: leans heavily towards simulation. What does this mean to the average gamer? In R: Racing, braking and stuff really matter(so much so that brake/accelerate were mapped to the GCN shoulder buttons, for fine control), and if you happen to bump into an AI car, it won't shoot forward 15 metres while you stop dead in your tracks.

    I could go on and on about the differences, but at the end of the day, I'm the only person in the world who likes R: Racing, even though the Ridge Racer games suck and R: fixed all the problems I have with them.

    I found out that this is essentially a port of the N64 Ridge Racer? Bleh...

    WTF? I'm not even going to dignify that crap with a proper response. Just grow the hell up and learn how to use grammar.

    you come here, start pointless discussions by saying that Ridge Racer and R: Racing aren't the same series (which is like saying that Mario 64 and Mario Sunshine aren't one series), just to tell us you don't care about this game and the DS in the end...

    the boxart says "Ridge Racer", the title says "Ridge Racer", the rom name says "Ridge Racer"...so why are you even asking if this is a R: Racing game?

    Woohoo, another DS dump. Shame I bought NFSU2 already yesterday! [​IMG] Oh well, let's see how this stacks against it. I believe it's not nearly as good as NFSU2. [​IMG]

    Did want to try out the touch screen controls though... [​IMG]

    Ok, I'm not one of those people who ask stuff at the wrong time, but when I clicked on View INFO, it said something about a download ans was wondering.
