Daytona USA 2 Forum  /  A new misc category added.

I decided to add a new category to the boards.

This category only allows submissions using the Hornet played in Battle on the Edge ("BotE").

This might raise some questions as surely the Hornet is only a Power Edition vehicle? Turns out, it's not, but I didn't know about it.

Some research after the first "secret" submission was made, I found out that the community building the supermodel emulator were aware of the hidden Hornet in BotE as early as 2013 and was able to "unlock" it for a race using a hex editor to modify savestates. If you want to submit to this category, finding and using this method to "hack" the Hornet into the selection screen IS ALLOWED.

This does not make this a "hack" category, as there is a legitimate way of playing using the Hornet in BotE. This, however, as far as I know, is a secret only known by the Marubaku group, but I can confirm I HAVE seen it been done, so I can verify it is very real.

Using the hex method does not allow the car to be tuned as the legit method does, but I'm allowing both either way because this is just a misc category and it also not considered allowed for records by marubaku. So in essence this is a "meme" category.

HornetPHornetP and LabracktimeLabracktime like this.

Also gonna hijack my own thread so say that I plan on adding categories for 100-500 miles as well in the near future. For anyone interested in tackling a more enduring challenge!
