3. Development Notes

Jon-Jon Santiago

Satoru Takasugi, BigBen

Special thanks to BigBen for the JGTC .exe and AllDash, Tom McMahon for the excellent RX-7 mesh used as the basis for the Okura and RE Amemiya cars, Dreadman for the Ferrari 360/355 meshes, M@D69 for the Porsche mesh, and Satoru Takasugi for being a generous and highly skilled teacher.

Much thanks goes to Jim McCabe (aka Fenderbender) for painting the Netz A'PEX MR-S and Gaikokuya Porsche, as well as helping with the Espelir MR-S paintjob. Also thanks to Victor Harris (aka Quic Vic) for helping paint the Jim Gainer Ferrari F355 and Sigmatec MR-S.

*Important Release Notes:

  • Only 1 level of detail on the BP Kraft Trueno
  • VEH files for the Mazda RX-7s and Toyota Celicas are NOT balanced with the rest of the car set.
The above issues will be resolved in a forthcoming patch.

4. Installation

If this is your first time installing the GT-300 Car Set Version 2.0, unzip both zip files into your SCGT installation directory. If you are upgrading from a previous installation of the GT-300 Car Set Version 1.2, you need only unzip the second zip file.

*Important* Make sure you check the 'use folder names' option in WinZip so that the files are extracted into the proper directories. The car set requires a specific directory structure. Failure to extract the files into the proper directories will prevent the game from running.

Installing Ban Scene MAS is required to be used with this carset.

To drive with the cockpit view, be sure to download BigBen's JGTC AllDash, otherwise the game will crash if you attempt to drive while in cockpit view.

To properly animate the wheel skins, you must edit your ANI.ANI file in the /DAT directory of your SCGT installation. Refer to the gt_300_ani.ani file for the entries to be added.

Do not forget to leave a blank line for the end of your ANI.ANI file.

5. Recommended Add-On Files

Here is a list of add-on files that will enhance your JGTC experience for SCGT.

This carset is packed with a new EXE which is created by BigBen.
The new JGTC.exe will call new career seasons and the new JGTC Alldash.

The JGTC.exe's new career mode contains two classes, the GT-300 class for this carset as well as the GT-500 class for Satoru Takasugi's beautiful GT-500 carset. Your JGTC experience will be incomplete without Satoru's incredible cars. You can download the entire 2000 season GT-500 carset here: Satoru Takasugi's GT-500 carset

The JGTC.exe's new career mode also calls some additional tracks made by some of best track makers in the SCGT community. You must have these tracks to play the full season of the JGTC.exe. Failure to install these tracks before starting Career Mode can cause your game to malfunction.

Brands Hatch
Circuit de Catalunya(Barcelona)
Melbourne GP (Albert Park)
Montreal (Circuit Gilles Villeneuve)
Monza GP
Silverstone GP

You can find links to these along with many other beautiful tracks at SCGT track list page.

BigBen, dash master, created a new ALLDASH to be used exclusively for the GT-300 and GT-500 carsets produced by Satoru Takasugi and I. You can get it here, BigBens Alldash.

All the VEHs in this carset are tuned to be used with the SCGT SOUND REALISM UPDATE. You can get these updated sound files at the US pits.

I hope you enjoy the GT-300 carset.
