Driver: You Are The Wheelman [PSX Demo's]

Post by SLAYERMAGGOT »

Beta Demo #1:

INFO:
In this beta the Miami city main car was yellow with a black stripe (a kind of vehicle that is only used in Driver 2).
The HUD wasn´t complete and the map color is green instead of red.

SCREENS:

Beta Demo #2

INFO:
The Miami city main car is a grey car (like in the final), an early pause/debug menu and the car resists to more damages than in the final version. Also in the Main Menu you can choose one demo mission (chase) or watch the game controls.
Other functions are marked with "N/A" and some main menu writings are different compared to the final version.
The HUD isn´t complete and some cars seen in the beta Newcastle city were not used in the Playstation version, but they can still be “unlocked” with gameshark/AR codes.
The loading bar have slightly darker colours and the ingame timer has silver metal look unlike the white simple font used in the final.
In the beta demo you can drive your car into the water as there are no barriers to stop you in some parts of Miami area. Also some of the boats do not have textures.

It's a beta demo disc which features other games like Bloodlines, Adventure Game, Tank Racer, Rugrats, Roll Cage, Retro Force and a Ridge Racer T4 Video.


Beta Demo #3

INFO:
The HUD isn´t complete and the radar map is slightly lower placed.
The loading screens says now "Driver - You Are the Wheelman".
When you go to "View Chases" in the Main Menu, it says "You D*ck" (WTF?).
Also in the Main Menu you can choose one demo mission, or watch the game controls.
The mission plays in Miami, compared to Beta No.2, the whole city is more solid and you can't drive into the water without cheats. The loading bar have slightly darker colours.
As well the "felony" bar is missing and the ingame font is white instead of yellow like in the final.
The loading screen says "Driver - You Are the Wheelman" (Driver Logo looks different too) instead of "Driver" like in the final PSX version.

Beta Demo #4 (not leaked)

INFO:
The HUD has been changed, but is still missing the "Damage" and "Felony" writing.
The radar map is slightly higher placed.
This build looks quite similar to the final PSX version.

Enjoy!

Those are all on PSX.
I just got Beta 3 and hopefully i get Beta 2 soon.
Beta 1 would be awesome, but i don't think anyone have it.

I'm not sure were to get Beta 4 though, maybe someone can help me there.

I found two unused loadingscreens in the Beta 2 ISO, i guess they are from Beta 1.

The first car is EXACTLY THE SAME As the secret Chicago car. pretty interesting,because it looks like they have never changed the car Textures,just converted them to Driver 2.


Anyway,great Beta. Such a Shame that i lost my Playstation some years ago,it sounds so cool to download and try.

Sorry for the late reply, i forgot this topic...

@betascollector:
- Driver 2 - Back on the Streets (preview demo): 34,5 MB
- Driver 2 - The Wheelman is Back (beta demo): 192 MB (Official PlayStation Magazine Best Games Ever 2000)

@DENIONION: I've re-uploaded those about a month ago and now they are down again. It may be a problem with this hoster, but it sucks when i have to upload those files again and again. Besides that my connection isn't the fastest. The Betaarchive FTP keeps those files safely and you just have to be active to get access.

@Duds: You are right about the yellow car. I suggest you playing those games with an PSX Emulator on the PC ;)

Should this work on any PSX Emulator?

Beta #2 certainly sounds interesting. I'm keen on driving on some water :P

They should have kept with the car in Beta #1, it looks good.

I played a lot of Driver back when it was somewhat new, loved it.

Too bad the links are down.
