Hidden Missions Discovered in Driver Demo

An astute reader of XLR8YourMac has posted information on how to enable hidden missions with the Driver demo that was released on Monday. Many IMG readers have voiced their disappointment regarding the demo in the forums and on MGF, claiming that the gameplay is far too short for such a lengthy download. A simple modification to the mission names allows you to drive around in the San Francisco Bay Area as much as you want, and in rainy conditions if you like. Another side effect is that the time limit is removed on the other maps, so you can drive around for an extremely long time -- as long as you don't run into the law. Here is the full scoop:
I did a little exploring and noticed that the Scripts folder contains a Missions folder with 5 missions in it. The file mission661.dms is the default getaway mission. By changing the name of any of the other 4 missions to mission661.dms, you can play them instead. They are all drive around the town missions that let you last a lot longer if you don't get the cops attention. One has Rain and is at night! You can play in SF or Miami.This little "hack" just about triples the replay value in the demo. The reader goes on to explain how to alter the characteristics of the mission, such as the aggressiveness of the police cars and the damage they can inflict and receive (the police cars are usually invincible). If you haven't grabbed the demo yet, now you have more reason to do so.
