    Sleep is hard. Body does not want to sleep. Brain wants to sleep. Brain tends to lose. Hi! I'm [still] Jaina, [still] queer as hell, [still] messed up in the head [but slightly better than before], [still] obsessed with LEGO stuff. Especially that which was around during my early childhood. Hey, it's been a while since I was around here. I dropped out of RIT. Game Design, while still a huge passion of mine, is no longer something I can pursue. I simply cannot retain ANY useful information about coding (beyond the basics) if I stop coding for even a short period of time, and I have trouble learning anything new in it. I'm also in a bad place in my life, mental health wise, so I'm focusing on doing a whole lot of therapy and getting my s*** back together. I brought back RSIs (repetitive strain injuries) brought about by trying to breed a shiny version of every single goddamn Pokemon (for which that is possible) by playing an extremely excessive amount of Dofus, followed by Stardew Valley, and then Sunless Sea. I'm itching to go back to Sunless Sea. I have no self control, though, so whenever they are feeling marginally better I do something to screw them up. It's REALLY boring watching Netflix and trying not to fidget all day long. I recently remembered how awesome LEGO stuff can be and I want nothing more than to build, build, build. Unfortunately, my home is in Rochester, and my bricks are with my parents, in Saint Paul - plus, my hands hurt all the frickin' time so I'm not gonna open that barrel of snake worms until they are doing better. In more positive news, I have a partner and also a sort of partner who will probably eventually be a girlfriend and it's pretty great. It's weird that some people actually find me attractive. Edit: Hopefully I'll be around here more often. I have very little to do lately. Recovery is dull.

    I know that the title above is off-topic but I would like to say thank you for everything that has happen to this community. For Admins, for moderators, for new and old members, everyone. Its been an honor for me to be a member of this community. Everything that was discussed from mods to game mechanics to whatever craziness you guys made, its all worth it just to be here. As to show you my gratitude, I would like to include all my custom racers(with the exception of the 2 which you guys may be aware of when I upload it) in one picture. As you know, there are changes to some of my mocs. You can check on more pictures in the members gallery as I upload more of them for extra viewing or you can go to custom racers from the modding racers section if you want a full description of each car I made. EDIT: Link below: Again, Thank you RRU community. Hope to see more members make some more exciting mods in the future. dy_enforcer out.

    I do not know if you guys know this, but in all my years of playing LEGO racers. I NEVER once in my life thought that if you are in 4th, 5th or 6th in the first circuit race on whatever circuit you are in, you lose instantly. Here a video to prove it. First time he race, he's in 4th place and lost straight away. Even I do not know about this mechanic, First time I played, I got either 1st, 2nd or 3rd and advance to the next race. I tried this to force myself to last and I got a lose right away. EDIT: But that's not the case, there more. 2nd try: This time I got win 1st on the 1st race and I go last on the 2nd. I got 31 points overall. I advance to the 3rd race because I'm in 2nd place. I go last again and got 32 points. I still advance and then after the final race, I go last again, and finally got the lose cutscene on the final race. 3rd try: Same procedure, but this time I go 2nd on my first race. Finish last on the 2nd race, overall 21 points, I still advance because I'm in 3rd place overall. After my 3rd race went to 6th. Got 22 points and finally went 4th overall. I got an instant lose cutscene. 4th try: Got 3rd placed on the 1st race and last on the 2nd. Overall 11 points, I got an instant lose cutscene on the 2nd circuit race. In conclusion: If you are in 4th, 5th or 6th place overall depending on what race track you are in, you lost instantly. What's even interesting is if I say put a circuit boss in either 4th or 5th or 6th on any track that was sequenced, he/she(Talking to you Gypsy Moth) still advance to the next race, same can be said for the AI racers as well. Possibly because they are programmed to be challenged by the player I guess. Has anyone ever experienced being in 4th, 5th or 6th in the first circuit race? I sure don't. Never in my life have ever known this mechanic before. Note to self: ALWAYS READ THE MANUAL! Lego racers manual from page. 18 To continue the Circuit Race, you will need at least 10 points after the first race, 20 points after the second race, and 30 points after the third race. If you have fewer points at the end of each race, the Circuit Race will end and you will have to start the circuit again. To be the overall winner of a Circuit Race, you must finish the circuit with the most points.

    Lol yeah I remember doing that all the time. I used to only have the demo of this game so I could only play Imperial Grand Prix over and over again. Just racing on the same map over and over got boring so I remember trying to prevent racers from finishing for as long as I could by using the items.

    You're lucky I have recording software and a youtube channel ^^ Here you go: (start to dissapear at the 2:15 mark in video, thats 8min in game time) I really hope this leads to something, I currently have the .cfg set to unlock all levels, so I can at least try another mission, but they have the same problem.

    Last month I posted a picture of an upgraded Basil the Batlord's car set from this link: And after looking at it again, I realize something is not right. I set the plane turbines on backwards , usually its the other way around kinda like this: So to make amends of my honest mistake, I remake him again, although I have to sacrifice his emblem shield. At least this one feels right in my perspective. Also, I do apologize for constant change of the vehicles I have made. I do this because, there are some I need to improve and looking more ways to be creative on my builds. Anyways that's all for now. Expect the picture from this link to be changed soon.

    Doing so gets ten times more fun when you've modded the map to contain basically no green bricks, very few shielding, uncommon whites, and TRUCKLOADS of reds Average lap time is slightly less than a minute It's how I keep myself amused in LR, given that it's impossible to make the game difficult (cheating AI, yes, difficult... not really. Warp is still OP pls nerf).

    I recall we encountered it once when we were newbs back in the day, and I've also sometimes encountered it in modded powerup tracks when I'm playing not to win but to shoot as many AI with cannonballs as possible.

    Well, I have the Drome model format down, and I could do the LI2 format if I had the time and drive. (I haven't tried actually changing files yet, but I can read them all) I'm working on a modding tool for Drome, and I would like to release it as open-source, but most of the code is sloppily thrown together to work as quick as possible. Once I feel like it has some useful features completed (all it has now is model viewing and export, and partial level viewing) I'll publish a release.

    Were there ever topics on this stuff? I can't find one but I remember discussing it with some people. Anyway. This piece from the Xtreme Tower set has actual printing on it: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=30161pb01&idColor=20#T=C&C=20 While I don't own the set, I once saw a picture of the piece (in a MOC) clear enough to make out the text. While looking for it again today I came across this topic on a Swedish LEGO forum about exactly this: http://www.swebrick.se/index.php?topic=10027.0 As you can see there, the text on the computer reads: Bjarke is a Danish name, my guess is whoever designed the print put it in as some sort of joke about somebody at LEGO. It's also slightly odd as in Denmark, the Brickster was named Kim Cool: You'd think they'd say "aka Kim Cool" on that computer piece, especially given the reference to Denmark immediately after, but ah well. Speaking of Danish names... There's an often repeated trivia fact on misc websites (and I think a DK book or two) saying "1997 saw the minifig’s official entry into the digital realm, starring in the videogame Panic on Lego Island". It seems that was the name in Denmark, for at least some copies... But in Danish of course. The game was also going to be named "Adventures on LEGO Island" in English before they decided to shorten it, IIRC it was advertised by that name in a LEGO Mania Magazine or two and it was also alluded to in-game by Dr Clickitt (he makes a joke about being so busy they could have their own game, "Adventures in LEGO Hospital" or something). I've heard it was still called by that name in other languages, but I don't remember if it was verified or not. Doesn't seem unlikely though, given the Danish name.

    With some help from the file format information jamesster found on Xentax I have made a JAM extractor. For the amount of information it has to process, it's rather fast, but it will hang there for a bit as it processes all the files (so have patience). Without further ado, here it is: JAM Extractor Latest Downloads: Windows 32-bit Windows 64-bit Mac 64-bit Other Links: All Downloads GitHub Repository Extract your download to find the main "JAMExtractor" executable (all files are required, do not separate them or it will not work). Usage You can run it by the command line or, on Windows, simply drag-and-drop the LEGO.JAM file onto the main executable and wait for it to finish creating a folder next to the original file. To recompile, simply drop a folder onto the main executable and it will create a JAM file. >If you have the 1999 version of the game, it is unnecessary to rebuild a JAM archive. It is possible to have the program also print the files being processed as the program runs if you add an "--verbose" to the arguments. >Still need a GUI? Check out this topic. Important Notes The LJAM file format does not allow file or folder names to contain more than 12 characters. As of version 1.0.2, the program will skip over file and folder whose names are longer than 12 characters. Thus, any files and folders you create within the JAM archive's folders that have names longer than 12 characters will automatically be excluded when creating a new JAM archive. Older versions would only use the first 12 characters of the name as the file name and would include them. Alternately, you can use the source code from the GitHub repository with a Python interpreter. As of version 1.0.2, JAM Extractor is compatible with Python 2.7 and newer, older versions are compatible with 3.0 and newer.

    This tutorial was written for the 1999 version of LEGO Racers, so you may not need to follow steps 3-6 if you have a different version. It is important that you follow these steps in the exact order specified, or you may have trouble launching the game. 1. Insert the LEGO Racers disc into your PC. Rather than install the game conventionally, you will need to download le717’s Racers Alternate Installer here. 2. When the executable file has downloaded, run it and follow through the steps. Once completed, uncheck “Launch LEGO Racers” and press “Finish” to close the installer. 3. LEGO Racers uses SafeDisc protection (at least, the 1999 version does), which is no longer supported in Windows 10. You can however re-enable the driver that SafeDisc uses, but only do so when you wish to play LEGO Racers and other trusted games as it was removed for a reason. Open a folder in Windows Explorer, such as Documents. Click “File”, then mouse over “Open command prompt” and choose “Open command prompt as administrator”. 4. Type in (without quotes) “bcdedit /set TESTSIGNING ON”. Press enter and it will state “This operation completed successfully.” Now you can close the command prompt. 5. Download this file, extract it and place the “SECDRV.SYS” file into the following location: C:\Windows\System32\drivers Then restart your computer. 6. Upon logging back in, you should see text in the lower-right corner of your desktop, along the lines of “Test Mode Windows 10 Home” with some random nonsense after. You will need the Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider to actually make the SECDRV.SYS driver work. Go to this page and click “Download” at the bottom, then choose “Agree” to download it. Right click dseo13b.exe and select “Run as administrator”. Press Next, then Yes, and you’ll be at the main menu. Check “Sign a System File” and press Next. Now you will need to type in the location of the SECDRV.SYS file, which should be: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\SECDRV.SYS Click OK and OK again, then in the main menu check “Exit” and press Next. 7. The game should now launch without trouble, but it can also be made widescreen and prepared for easy modding. Download JrMasterModelBuilder’s JAM Extractor here. 8. Extract the folder and you’ll see files inside, including a “JAMExtractor.exe” file. Copy the “LEGO.JAM” file from your installation directory and paste it here. Then drag the pasted “LEGO.JAM” file onto the “JAMExtractor.exe” file to extract it. A new LEGO folder will appear when the program is finished, and your folder should look like this: 9. Open the “LEGO” folder, select the “GAMEDATA” and “MENUDATA” folders inside, and move them into your install directory. When that’s finished, you can delete the extracted JAMExtractor folder, including all files inside. Then rename the “LEGO.JAM” file in the install directory to “BACKUP LEGO.JAM”. Your install directory should now look like this: 10. Finally, to run the game in widescreen at custom resolutions, first download WillKirkby’s LR1 Launcher here. 10. Extract the downloaded ZIP and move its “LR1Launcher.exe” file into the install directory. Set the compatibility options to run the application with administrative privelages, by right-clicking it, choosing “Properties”, and entering the “Compatibility” tab. Then check “Run this program as an administrator” as shown below. 11. Run LR1Launcher.exe (you can make a shortcut to it elsewhere if you wish), select your desired resolution and check boxes as you wish, then click Launch and play LEGO Racers! When you’ve finished, follow steps 3-4, this time entering “bcdedit /set TESTSIGNING OFF”. Reboot the computer and it will be back to normal, with LEGO Racers not launching again. In future you will need to follow steps 3, 4 and the latter part of 6 - enabling test mode, rebooting into it and signing the driver - whenever you wish to play the game, but it’s far less hassle than using a virtual machine or transferring files to an old XP computer if you’re modding.

    This is a listing of alternate installers created for LEGO Media video games to replace the aging and often-incompatible ones on the disc. This will help you install the game on modern computers. In most cases, they do nothing to actually get the game running. There are other topics that detail troubleshooting each game. This list will be expanded as more installers are written.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^ The 2001 version loads GAMEDATA & MENUDATA folders if an emtpy, valid LEGO.JAM file is present Make sure the LEGO.JAM file is a valid file else it gives you an error messagebox. Seems like the game first loads LEGO.JAM and then loads any missing resources from the GAMEDATA & MENUDATA folder if they aren't inside LEGO.JAM MODERATOR EDIT - Here's an empty LEGO.JAM file ready for you to download and use, courtesy of Xiron: http://oresome.rockraidersunited.com/download/349 Just putting this in the OP so people can find it easier.

    Using the 2001 GAMEDATA folder with the 1999 exe works. Same with using the 1999 GAMEDATA folder with the 2001 exe. The issue seems to be the MENUDATA folder.

    Also the 1999 release isn't able to play with the 2001 GAMEDATA & MENUFOLDER if you remove LEGO.JAM (works with 1999 LEGO.JAM and 2001 GAMEDATA/MENUDATA combined though) if you then overwrite the GAMEDATA & MENUDATA folders with the 1999 folder (so overwritting files over the 2001 folders) it works 2001 release will play with empty (but valid) lego.jam file + 2001 GAMEDATA & MENUDATA folders but wont work with 2001 release wont play with empty (but valid) lego.jam file + 1999 GAMEDATA & MENUDATA folders

    A launcher for Lego Racers that takes care of custom resolutions, and allows for various patches to improve the game in HD. Config (executable path and resolution) is saved between sessions. If you're having the "black borders on the main menu" issue, try either of the following: > Run the launcher as Administrator > Put the game directory somewhere that non-administrators have write access (for example, put it in your documents rather than program files) REQUIRES .NET FRAMEWORK 4. Version 1.0: [LINK] Changelog: V1.0: > Initial build + Custom Resolutions + Fullscreen Mainmenu patch + Fullscreen cutscene patch

    I can report this will work with Racers 2001. All you have to do is have the extracted files (GAMEDATA/MENUDATA) in the same folder as the Exe (2001 Racers ignores the folders), run the launcher and patch the files to the resolution, then (after closing Racers with must be run), compress MENUDATA/GAMEDATA into a new JAM. Tedious, yes, but it works.
