Track Cycling in PCM08
NewsWell many people know about this now so I may aswell reveal details in full - this was discovered by Aab-ern yesterday.

When you download the Graphic viewer file which was released a couple of days ago, it contains many files and folders. Go to UserHome and then AppData and there is a Local.cdb file.

You can open that file inb Hannes Converter 2.0 and in it, are details which shows that Track Cycling looks set to be added into PCM08!

STA_Gamemode gives the first clue, as listed below Career, Race, Stage, Season, Classic and Tutorial is Track.

If you look into STA_Race and scroll down, you will see three races below Japan Cup, called Vitesse, Keirin and Elimination Race. These are track events, Vitesse is basically the Sprint, Keirin is Keirin (Well duh!) and Elimination Race sounds like a sudden death type of event, there isnt actually a track event that is like it, but it sounds interesting.

If you look in DYN_Team, you can see that there will be Seperate track teams as if you scroll down to the bottom and look in the CONSTANT column you will see: 'TRACK_TEAM01', 'TRACK_TEAM02', 'TRACK_TEAM03' etc etc

There are track references in a variety of tables, for example, in SYS_game_action, at the bottom are 'ConnectTrack', 'StartTrack', 'TrackChooseCyclist' and 'TrackCyclistsOk'. In STA_Stagetype 'TRACK' 'TRACK_SPRINT' 'TRACK_KEIRIN' and 'TRACK_ELIMINATION' are all listed, below the three game types that are normally there.

Sadly, the track races are currently only in Paris, as in STA_Race, Paris 1, Paris 3 and Paris 4 are the track races. Since there is no Paris 2 there, this does suggest that there will be more track events added during the development period.

If you close the DB, and look for graphics, you'll find some interesting stuff too:

First thing in PCM-Viewer\Gui\ingame, is 6 "bars". It's thoose where you see your riders energy, effort level(%'s), tiredness and punch.

barreEffortTrack00.tga: A bar, connected to barreEffortTrack01.tga, shows the riders effort.
barreEffortTrack01.tga: A bar, connected to barreEffortTrack00.tga, shows the riders effort.
barreEnergyTrack00.tga: A bar, which is showing the riders energy. Connected to barreEnergyTrack01.tga and barreEnergyTrack02.tga
barreEnergyTrack01.tga: A bar, which is showing the riders energy. Connected to barreEnergyTrack00.tga and barreEnergyTrack02.tga
barreEnergyTrack02.tga: A bar, which is showing the riders energy. Connected to barreEnergyTrack00.tga and barreEnergyTrack01.tga
barreSpeedTrack.tga: A bar, showing the riders speed.

And the second is some kind of logo or image:

LogoTrackMax.tga: Some kind of logo, showing "MAX" og and a red arrow. I can't guess for what.



Something unrelated but quite funny, in DYN_Team, if you look midway up in the CONSTANT column you will see 'LOOSER_TEAM' and two columns to the right of that is 'cyanide.com'

have I mentioned I hate you?
#7 | CrueTrue on 22. December 2007 22:25
:lol: Just be happy that you even got some information in the first place Wink
#8 | issoisso on 22. December 2007 22:35
to be perfectly blunt, I'd rather not have know that there was extra info, because now I'll be wondering what the hell it is Smile
#9 | CrueTrue on 22. December 2007 22:39
Any guesses? Pfft

No, seriously. As I said in the previous news item there will be lots of info in January.
#10 | SportingNonsense on 23. December 2007 08:33
Domestiques collecting drinks for the race leader? I know that was suggested heavily for PCM07.
#11 | issoisso on 23. December 2007 08:37
that would take a gigantic overhaul of the energy system, since having domestiques would be the only thing that mattered.

unless of course the leader could get bottles for himself as well, only at a slightly higher energy cost. but that's basically the same effect as the "protection" that already exists, only more tiresome to manage.

I don't think that's it
#12 | Waghlon on 23. December 2007 10:13
@SN: There was a bottle collection system in CyM2. Of course it didnt work well. But it was there.
#13 | jolly_antunes on 23. December 2007 17:09
If they want a realistic game, that should be added to the game. And the fans would really like itGrin
#14 | Guichet on 24. December 2007 18:04
Is this confirmed?
#15 | ruben on 24. December 2007 21:13
Theo Bos will own all
#16 | Borrajo on 24. December 2007 22:48
walter perez and juan curuchet will win all madisons
#17 | robert_psv on 28. December 2007 15:31
I hope they will add all the team cars at the back of the peloton, and if there's a breakaway group or in mountains the cars will follow their main ridersPfft
#18 | CrueTrue on 29. December 2007 19:55
Guichet: It's not officially confirmed by Cyanide, but I can confirm it. I've been told by Cyanide that it's implented in the game Wink
#19 | Guichet on 30. December 2007 13:11
OK. Thanks
#20 | Tom canning on 16. March 2008 20:51

#21 | Wiggo on 18. September 2008 19:23
Elimination Race sounds like a sudden death type of event, there isnt actually a track event that is like it, but it sounds interesting.


It's called a devil.
