PS2 Midnight Club Street Racing: Unlocking special cars for use in Arcade mode:
In Midnight Club there are 6 vehicles which cannot be unlocked by winning races
(see http://Ledmeister.com/mc1ps2xr.htm for details on all races and vehicles).
One hidden vehicle, a "Baja Buggy", becomes available in Arcade mode when using
a memory card containing data from the PS2 game "Smuggler's Run"; The remaining
5 are unlocked by driving into secret areas during Arcade: Cruise/Joyride mode.
Instructions below are for use with a regular Taxi with automatic transmission.
For best results set pedestrian/traffic levels to zero, and use the map screen.
TAXI CABS: SUPER TAXI (New York): When you first appear in New York, your Taxi
will be facing south. Drive south to the middle of the green park area at the
rounded southern tip of the map. Look for a cluster of gray monoliths (a war
memorial). From there, continue south to the long, low wall nearby. Turn left
and follow the wall to a crosswalk at an intersection. Turn around to face the
opposite direction, with your front bumper over the crosswalk. Hold down the X
button continuously and follow the wall. As you pass the memorial, turn right,
towards an opening in a low red brick building to the northwest. Drive up the
right half of the ramp inside this building, and jump to the roof of the next.
Find the rotating pink aurora, and drive through it to unlock the Super Taxi.
TAXI CABS: MARAUDER (New York): When you first appear in New York, your Taxi
will be facing south. Head right to drive to the west edge of map, then turn
left and start driving south along the edge of the map. On your left you will
begin passing by 4 large red brick buildings, one after another. At the corner
of the fourth one, look for an opening. Just inside is a ramp. Park your Taxi
with its front bumper at the bottom edge of the ramp. Hold down the X button
continuously while following the ramp around to a window at the top. Aim your
Taxi so it goes through the right-hand side of the window. With luck, you will
jump across to the third building, and crash through a window on its second
floor. Slowly drive through the rotating pink aurora to unlock the Marauder.
KURUMA: FAASUTO GR (London): When you first appear in London, press the R2
button to look behind you, and you'll see a blue "SPEED" sign on the corner of
a building. Turn around and drive over to the 4-way intersection under that
sign. In the middle of the intersection, face that blue sign on the building,
and turn slightly to the right. Drive down the street, keeping that building
on your left. When you get to an intersection, continue straight through until
you get to the next intersection. Up ahead to the left you'll see a green dome
rising above a wide, low building. Proceed forward and look left for a short
ramp leading to a window in that building. Drive through that window and look
for a rotating pink aurora ahead. Drive through it to unlock the Faasuto GR.
KURUMA: FAASUTO GS (London): When you first appear in London, press the R2
button to look behind you, and you'll see a blue "SPEED" sign; remember it.
Switch to forward view, and drive up to where the grass turns to reddish stone.
Bear left to stay on the stone, keeping a low fence to your right. Continue
following that fence until you come to a street. Continue forward through one
4-way intersection, and into the next. Turn around to face back the way you
came. Hold down the X button continuously and head back to the red stone. In
the red area, swerve right to pass a wide patch of gray stone, then aim for the
blue SPEED sign. Go up the ramp below the sign to jump to a nearby roof. Look
left for a rotating pink aurora, and drive through it to unlock the Faasuto GS.
KURUMA: FAASUTO GT (London): When you first appear in London, press the Select
button until the entire map of London is visible. In the bottom left corner of
the map, just above the sharp bend in the river, is a circular web of roadways.
Drive your Taxi to the center of this circle, and drive around the center until
you see a large red building. Look for a ramp running up along one side of it.
Park with your front bumper at the bottom edge of the ramp, then hold down the
X button continuously to drive up. As you reach the top edge of the ramp, turn
sharply so that you'll go airborne towards the right. Once airborne, hold down
both brake buttons so that you'll come to a quick stop when you land. Look for
a rotating pink aurora nearby, and drive through it to unlock the Faasuto GT.
