All about Mike Driver's very interesting modification!

Since I like the checkpoint missions of Driver, I decided to modify them after playing them all. I ended up spending many hours in doing so and created entirely new ones, too.

Now you can download these missions and play them! :D
You'll find them at the end of this post.

Instead of only 6 checkpoints, the missions have up to 36 checkpoints! :shock:

I used the help of DSME (Driver Simple Mission Editor) for orientation. But with DSME itself you cannot create checkpoint missions. It is all done by hand with MS Editor.

The fun with checkpoint missions is that there is always a way to improve your times. An alternative route or a more aggressive way of driving curves – and you get those seconds! You can drive a hundred times and there’s still room to improve. Especially if you have many checkpoints and a long way to go.

Please tell me if missions do not work properly on you PC. I could only test them on 2 different PCs. There they work perfectly. I'm using a german version right now and also tested the stuff with the US version (both for MS Windows). Worked with both.

I would also like to post the times that people set. I plan two categories. One with the original car that I put into the missions and one with a car of your choice. Using the cheats is not allowed.
:specialdriver:
The missions:

(description follows)

1. mission71 Miami Checkp 3 mega - 36 Checkpoints
(checkpoint mission with most checkpoints in the world)

2. mission72 Miami Checkp 4 - 10 Checkpoints

3. mission73 SF Checkp 3 mega - 32 Checkpoints
(worlds longest checkpoint mission)

4. mission74 LA Checkp 3 - 11 Checkpoints
(my first custom build checkpoint mission)

5. mission75 Miami Checkp 5a Insane - 28 Checkpoints
(worlds most difficult checkpoint mission)

6. mission76 Miami Checkp 5b Sane - 26 Checkpoints

7. mission77 Newcastle Checkp - 17 Checkpoints
(the only Newcastle checkpoint mission in the world)


From the “Read First” file:

Alternative Driver 1 Checkpoint Missions:

Important: Make sure you copy and save the original missions in a separate folder (Original Missions)!

You should also copy and save the alternative missions in a separate folder.

This way you can always replace the missions back and forth by copying
them to the original folder which is:

GT Interactive --> Driver --> Scripts --> Missions


Replace missions this way:

1. Delete missions 71 to 74
2. Copy and paste alternative missions into missions folder
3. Rename like this:
mission71 Miami Checkp mega 36 Checkpoints.dms --> mission71.dms
4. Now you should be able to play the new mission.


Original missions are:

mission71 - Miami Cross-town Checkpoint Race No.1
mission72 - Miami Cross-town Checkpoint Race No.2
mission73 - San Fransisco Cross-town Checkpoint Race No.1
mission74 - San Fransisco Cross-town Checkpoint Race No.2


You can also play the following checkpoint missions even if not accessible yet by
replacing (just change name) missions 71 to 74 with the following:

mission75 - LA Cross-town Checkpoint Race No.1
mission76 - LA Cross-town Checkpoint Race No.2
mission77 - NY Cross-town Checkpoint Race No.1
mission78 - NY Cross-town Checkpoint Race No.2

Short description of the missions (work in progress!)

1. mission71 Miami Checkp 3 mega - 36 Checkpoints
(checkpoint mission with most checkpoints in the world)

This one is not for beginners. It takes a lot of concentration over many minutes to set a good time. You'll get to know a glitch in the Miami docks. And you can drive it a hundred times and still find ways to improve you best times. This one might be the king of checkpoint missions.


2. mission72 Miami Checkp 4 - 10 Checkpoints

The fun with this mission is finding the best route to drive since you'll have multiple possibilities for many of the checkpoints.


3. mission73 SF Checkp 3 mega - 32 Checkpoints
(worlds longest checkpoint mission)

In this mission you'll drive over long distances. No other checkpoint mission comes close in milage. You'll even leave San Francisco and go to the gas station beyond the Golden Gate Bridge. You'll discover some small hidden streets and an underground parking space. And you will need your checkpoint-radar a lot :wink: .


4. mission74 LA Checkp 3 - 11 Checkpoints
(my first custom build checkpoint mission)

Some people mind find out new things about the LA airport. It's an extended version of one of the original LA checkpoint missions.


5. mission75 Miami Checkp 5a Insane - 28 Checkpoints
(worlds most difficult checkpoint mission)

Before you try this, start with mission 76 5b Sane. The first 25 checkpoints are identical. But then mission 75 gets extremely difficult! To this day I do not know one person who even accomplished it except for myself. If you can make it under 3 minutes and prove it (screenshot!) you'll get a Driver medal for great driving!
For the last 3 checkpoints you'll have to prove that you can really jump! There's "a glitch in the brigde" that helps you to go where you have to go to finish the mission. I'm sure this glitch is new to most of you. If you made that you'll learn how dangerous water can be :wink: .
If you need help, feel free to ask me.

note: set traffic on lowest degree in options.
This mission does have 28 Checkpoints not 27!


6. mission76 Miami Checkp 5b Sane - 27 Checkpoints

This mission is a lot of fun if you love to do big jumps in a fast car! But don't get confused by fences and prove that you can do a nice 180° handbrake turn followed by a burnout start at 100 mph.

note: this mission does have 27 Checkpoints not 26!


7. mission77 Newcastle Checkp - 17 Checkpoints
(the only Newcastle checkpoint mission in the world)

You think Newcastle is boring or you don't even know Newcastle? Then this is your mission! Get to know all of Newcastle (even a glitch) including both bridges. Don't get confused by the checkpoints in this mission. You'll only see the big red arrow and a shadow. But'll get used to that. This one is worth trying :) .

Wow, the return of a DRIVER fan-community legend. What do you do, man, hang out at the official forum then? Host what, Mike, your files, man? I am pretty sure Driver Madness Network is going to be around for a while. The boss hosts files here, and someone972 et al are creating a new Driver Mods website on this network.

Hey mate, I stumbled upon my old missions and sounds cleaning up my computer and had a look if the files are still online here in the forum. Since I couldn't upload them with my post I uploaded them to netload and megaupload but they will only host them for about 30 and 90 days. If you could upload them somewhere in the forum I would be thankful.
The links are in my first posts here and the Driver Sounds post.

Would be interesting if someone managed to finish the insane Miami checkpoint mission :D .
I was not active in other forums latetly but still play the game from time to time, mate.
