More Driver Demo Tweaks
9:38 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Those that felt the demo for MacSoft's recent release Driver was too short to justify the long, long download will have even less to complain about. A post to Usenet last night reveals details on how to tweak the 'mission scripts' for the game to include different weather effects and also gives details on how to change the vehicle you are driving, although this does not have a major effect on gameplay.

Usenet posted 'Ludwig' presented the following:

I'm sure everyone's already read about changing the demo mission to one
of the others in Driver Demo:Scripts:Missions. The results of some
tinkering with the mission text files themselves follow.

Add any of these lines to turn on the expected effect:





Some of these might be exclusive of others (Foggy & Lightning, for
instance; haven't tried all combinations.

You can also drive any of the 18 cars from the full version by adding
(or changing) "PlayerCarType" followed by a number from 0-17. They're
mostly missing their own engine sounds, though. Notables are:
1 - pickup truck

10 - LAPD cruiser (use the horn)

13 - NY taxi

16 - 174 MPH Jaguar

to make these changes to the script files, just open them in your favorite text editor (SimpleText works well). If you use a word processor, make sure you save the altered file as a generic text file. Note that you make these changes at your own risk, and that changes to the demo might cause crashes or serious changes in its behavior that were not intended by the authors or porting team.
