    Maybe you should get a PSP for driving games - you can't move for them! lol! [​IMG] (not very helpful I know) [​IMG]

    whee does look great, but I can't get it working on my R4, I load up the no-save version.. and I can't press any of the buttons on the touch screen, I assume its completely frozen

    edit-
    I get the same problem with his 'glider' game [​IMG]

    I swear theres a topic like this every week! Only other racer I enjoyed was Asphalt GT 2, which some people say is crap. Other than that one they are all pretty mediocre.

    Wait for Race Driver.

    NFS Carbon and Asphalt GT 2 are both good racing games for the DS that don't resort to cutesy characters for their appeal.



    Hey! That looks like a nice game, but what exactly does the guy mean when he says, "Be carefull! This game uses SRAM for saving and doesn't give a warning or anything like that before formatting."?

    Erm...before formatting what, my flashcart's memory card? Do I have to worry that it will wipe everything on the card? I would rather play the version that saves, but I need more info about this warning. Anyone know what he's talking about?

    Well, it seems a moot point as I can't get the NoSave version to work on my R4 (no touchscreen access) and the other versions of it don't work on my SCminiSD either.....they just load infinitely, counting the k up forever, or lock during the loading, depending on which version I tried. [​IMG]

    Oh well. It's just another reason why I tend not to bother with homebrew.....just too flaky.

    Too bad, it looked like a nice game. [​IMG]

    Only good driving games on the DS are mario kart and diddy kong. If you want to play great driving games get a PSP.

    NFS Carbon. Personally, Diddy Kong had awesome potential, but rare fokked it up as usual these days.

    I dont think whee has multiplayer though. I downloaded it in January though so it might have gotten updated by now. BTW its a great game with great background music

    What card and which version of it did you run? I can't get it to go on my R4 or my SCminiSD regardless of which file I try to use.

    The only driving game that doesn't make you feel the cars are stuck to the track or make you feel like you're driving a stationary car, whilst the scenery moves behind you is Mario Kart.

    DIddy Kong racing is unplayable. One fall in the water, and you've lost the race, as its like driving through quicksand. I wonder how they managed that comparison.

    Nothing on the DS comes close to PSP at driving titles.

    Need for Speed Underground 2 was ok, too. (DON'T try Most Wanted, though...)
