Now youve had a long time 2 play on Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, what do u think of it Zero?

And who else has got the game around here?

Proj3ct_Zer0
19-11-2003, 09:50 PM
One word needed...amazing :rolleyes:! Theres supposed to be away to actually play Mario Kart over the internet, which Im just researching more into now :)

GOLDIE
19-11-2003, 09:59 PM
Yeah but its a LAN version, I think you need 4 gamecubes :eek: , all with BBAs :eek: , 16 pads :eek: , 4 MKDD disks :eek: , oh and 4 TVs :eek: . As you seen you will need to have cool plas or just loads of money :D .

Lee-yoshi
19-11-2003, 10:21 PM
U can play Mario Kart: Double Dash!! LAN 8-player using anything from two gamecubes to well, 8 gamecubes! Each gamecube needs to have a Broadband Adapter and a copy of Mario Kart: Double Dash!! in it, aswell as being connected to a seperate TV and the BBA connected to a LAN modem of some sort. You cud play 8 player MK by connecting 8 cubes up2 8 teles and then plugin all the leads in2 the one LAN modem, or play 4 player split screen on 2 teles (8 player) using 2 gamecubes, etc etc (If that makes any sense).

But some squareheads have set up a way to play Mario Kart: Double Dash!! over the internet, but to do it you need loadsa computer gadgets, a very high speed internet connection, etc. I saw the link in a gamespydaily e-mail, if anyone really wants 2 read up on it i can put the link up here!

Lee-yoshi
20-11-2003, 11:47 PM

MARIO KART ONLINE!

Kirbys Air Ride Was the first LAN-linkable game to be available and this was used to get the project up and running-You could dupe the Gamecube into thinking it was actualy playing over LAN when it was actualy working over the internet. Now with Mario Kart finaly released the point has been tweaked to the point where you, the intrepid online gamer, can take part in testing sofware.

If you head over to http://www.warppipe.com you can find more extencive details about the project and how it all works as well check out the latest version of the software, which is ready to download. On the main page you will find thw latest news about the current software, as well as FAPS and forums to help you get started and troubleshoot any problems connectiong you may be having to look for players to race against.

The current version (at the time of writing) is running at a remarkable 55-60 FPS with little noticable lag. Obviously there is a great deal to be done but the fact is that IT WORKS. Unfortunately, you're unable to chat while you race-there simply aint bandwidth for text, let alone voice chat-but there are some plans to have some user recognition system in place for a future update for the software, enabling you recognise who you're playing againts.

Also, the current software only enables 2 gamecubes to be linked together (for up to eight players to race), although there are plans for a beta version which should enable four gamecubes to be connected.








HOWS THAT FOR RESEARCH!

Sorry for the late post,This game is absolutely FANTASTIC.Its a bit short though.I completed it in 2 days.

SPOILER:the secret chars and tracks are really cool.SPOILER

Proj3ct_Zer0
22-11-2003, 01:17 AM
I thought it was a bit to easy aswell. Ive unlocked most things upto now, and just need to do the Star and Special Cup on 150cc. Still a classic game though :)

Link777
22-11-2003, 11:59 AM
I was reading GM magazine the other day and it got 95%!
You're right Zero it is a classic.

Lee-yoshi
22-11-2003, 11:01 PM
The secret tracks sure are cool! How many battle arenas has everyone unlocked so far? Cos i only got Luigi's Mansion :(

Proj3ct_Zer0
22-11-2003, 11:29 PM
I've only got Luigis Mansion aswell. When your talking about secret tracks, are you ona bout the ones found on the Special Cup?

Ivan
23-11-2003, 08:20 PM
Luigi's mansion is a track? SWEET! any other cool ones? like that island mario visits in Super Mario Sunshine?

Lee-yoshi
23-11-2003, 10:50 PM
Well its not a track, just a small battle arena, but still pretty cool!

I think its quite cheesy of ninty to rename the track from Isle defino to peach's beach or wotever, it shud b Isle Defino beach or sumin, its not peachs! tut tut

Proj3ct_Zer0
23-11-2003, 11:03 PM
Yeh. The only problem about that level is that it is nothing like the Isle Delfino on Super Mario Sunshine, which is quite a shame :(

Lee-yoshi
23-11-2003, 11:09 PM
Nuthin like it, u sure uwernt playin another track? LMAO

Its set on the beach area, its got those....things...that flip u up in2 the air *huff* and its got all the same type of buildings and brickwork, and those people, etc etc, how much more of defino do u want? lol

Proj3ct_Zer0
23-11-2003, 11:14 PM
Exactly like the Island were you start on :p. The place were you warp to all the levels is were I'm ona bout

Lee-yoshi
23-11-2003, 11:16 PM
Well, yer i suppose thatd b more fun, or maybe to have both even! lol

Is there an updated version of Wario's Stadium and Bowser's Fortress?

The Wrioa stadium in n64 verson was good, but it was loooooong

Yeh both have been updated. I think Warios Stadium is most probably the best level on the game for me :).

Last night I beat 150cc for all Cups and unlocked All Star Cup. Every level off every Cup, compiled into one Cup :rolleyes:. Took me 40 minutes to beat it on 50cc :(

Serpent7
26-11-2003, 08:28 PM
What do you get for completing it?

Proj3ct_Zer0
26-11-2003, 08:33 PM
Nothing :mad:. Was hoping for a new Kart :(

Serpent7
26-11-2003, 08:35 PM
Bah! Maybe you get something for completing it on 50, 100, and 150cc.

Anyway- What's ure usual character+kart line-up?


For me- Diddy Kong+ Paratroopa in the bullet kart.

Proj3ct_Zer0
26-11-2003, 08:39 PM
Toad and Paratrooper in the Train Kart :)

Serpent7
26-11-2003, 08:59 PM
Do you prefer acceleration or speed?

Proj3ct_Zer0
26-11-2003, 09:02 PM
Speed, acceleration is only good for speeding up quicker.

Serpent7
27-11-2003, 05:47 PM
Hmmm... I felt the same for a while- I kept choosing Bowser so I could get his kart, but whats the point of a high top speed if you can only get there on long straights? (Which there are barely any of)

Ivan
27-11-2003, 06:50 PM

Yeah, thats what I was about to say, that you can unlock new karts, I played the new, and updated demo, and here were only a few karts to play, yet there where ones tht were in the grand prix (computer players)

Ton
27-11-2003, 07:23 PM
I have noooooooo idea what u guys r talking about. I am going to have to buy mario kart dd now.

27-11-2003, 10:44 PM
I dont really go Wario or Bowser. There too slow, but they have quite alot of weight behind them. Nice for knocking people out the way :)

Lee-yoshi
27-11-2003, 11:43 PM
Yoshi everytime in the driving seat, good ol dino!

With him, either Diddy, or Koopa Troopa! Brilliant!


AllStar Cup mode is frustrating, although i was so happy, i did it FIRST time as soon as i unlocked it on 150cc, and came first, YAHOO!!!! Close though, especially between DK n wario, grrrr.

What did i unlock u ask.........Mirror mode! All the cups/tracks, backwards! I have yet to do them on AllStar Cup mode! lol

Proj3ct_Zer0
27-11-2003, 11:49 PM
O kool. I'll have to work my way to unlock that now :rolleyes:

Lee-yoshi
28-11-2003, 12:04 AM
Trust me, the first time u play Mirror mode, its really, really, wierd! Everything backwards, even the flags, and lakitu's 'X Laps to go' sign! LMAO

(BTW, Mirror mode is exactly the same as Extra mode on Mario Kart 64 for those who were wondering!)

Orphen
28-11-2003, 09:35 PM
I use Mario and toadette. XD An odd combo, but they work pretty well together, also, I like using the waluigi car with them, one of the best cas i have, aside from the parade kart, which feels really strange to use for some reason..

Thesord
28-11-2003, 09:51 PM
The extra mode in the toad highway track(Not sure if that's the name).

Ivan
28-11-2003, 10:10 PM
That course was fun on the N64

Lee-yoshi
29-11-2003, 10:51 PM
Just unlocked Petey Pirhana and King Boo as playable characters in the Pipe car!!! HAHAHA so funny!

Too unlock as i did, complete Star Cup in Mirror mode!

I also got another battle mode track, and thats brilliant, it sorta tips up and down making you turn and all the ?'s roll of the side! LOL. O and its in the shape of a retro mario! God i love this game!

There is a 50cc in mirror mode? I thought it was just a seperate thing, dont u choose it when u choose wat cc u want? I just got mirror mode. I tied on first, and one. Crap, all cup tour on 150cc is hard.:D

I could list them if you like??:D :D :D

I think there r more than 15. I just got parade kart last night. So good, but so ugly.

Thesord
04-01-2004, 09:10 PM
Heh the game is actually better than I expected...
Still no new car for Wario/Bowser...
I'll have to try the WarpPipe team's software to take the game online(And 4 free!:) ).

Ton
04-01-2004, 09:12 PM
U mean no new heavy kart? or no new one that is specified for them. There is one kart for each character and that is all other than parade kart.

Thesord
04-01-2004, 09:14 PM
Yes,no new heavy car.:p
The game is actually easier than I thought.

Ton
04-01-2004, 09:17 PM
I agree, even mirror mode all cup tour wasn't all that hard. the hardest thing was 150cc all cup tour. mk:dd is more of a multiplayer game to me. 8 players.......:D :D :D

Thesord
04-01-2004, 09:19 PM
Yes,but who has many friend with gcs...
U should check the WarpPipe site..(I don't remember the link right now...).

Mini_Bert
04-01-2004, 10:28 PM
I've beaten all the mirror modes now, whats the time trials for? Practice? Or is there something to be beaten?

Ton
04-01-2004, 11:00 PM
Well, if u get certain times, really fast, on the levels in time trials, then u can get the nintendo staff ghost. They r really fast. Once u switch levels or characters or quit time trials u have to get them again. That sucks.

Serpent7

how about custom characters for the game?

Proj3ct_Zer0

Dont think that would work really, as its the main Nintendo characters going out head to head. Maybe stat building up would be a nice idea. A customisable cars :)

thats better. how about combining with characters of other games? master chief riding the warthog. lol. except then it would be a completly diffrent game.

Hmm.. what happened to riding around as a bob-omb when you're dead in battle mode?????????????? EH??? EXACTLY!!!

I've got an idea, a track/battle arena editor. That'd be pretty cool... :cool:

Just how I feel. Something else should have been added to it, to make it more interesting.

Somthing was! There was the LAN feature, and the double team feature as well, which made it a very unique game, maybe yeh they shoulda added a custom character feature (Like you can in ASB 2004 :P) and probobly a slightly different dialect.. But the game did need more changes...

Games are now being made with the only objective of making money...(They always were,but atleast Nintendo tryed and did make them to be entertaining until now.)Did you notice games from 5 years until now,have been losing some quality?

(Omg theres a bunch of Ps3'ers right there!*Hides in alley*)

It's not that Nintendo's games are getting bad,but any fool could see the :mad: :eek: :confused: that they've done lately.
MK:DD is a great game,especialy with the LAN feature,but simply there aren't enough GCs in people's homes :( to make it such a jewel(Besides,cut those baby voices in the end of a race :rolleyes: ).
(Sorry for going a little off-topic.)
Here's my 2 cents(Boy such a long post is making me sleepy.. :p ).

It was on the NES. It was about this guy who dressed liek a rabbit and used a yoyo to get rid of enemies while running around. Then there were games at the end of every level where u basically had to play war with the other Noid with cards. This determined how much Dominoes pizza you ate, and whoever ate the most in that round got a point, the most points on your side lets you go to the next level. WHEW....good times good times n.n

Crappy graphics then, but in 50 year's time, people'll be saying "remember those crappy graphics on the Gamecube?"

In 50 years time, imagine what they'll be saying about the graphics of the NES...or even The Game & Watch system!! XD

I wonder what graphics will look like in the future? Bring on virtual reality, I say.

How about Mario Party in VR? That'd be ... ... strange...

Yes, very nice!

Anyways, i think its about time we all looked back upto the name of this topic...yes thats right it was actually about Mario Kart: Double Dash!! would you believe!

Lets all go back and continue talking about the game please, and save the Virtual reality for another thread, feel free to create it most appropriately in Other Gaming if you like!

So how far exactly has everyone gotten? With what characters on MK: DD? Using Yoshi and Paratroopa I beat 150cc and got all the trophies and prizes for everything not mirrored n_n

this game is evil to light charcters and the game logic also sucks

If you don't like it....Don't play it! Game Over... :D

How far have i got? From what i remember, i finished it! lol And haven't honestly picked it up since. The game obviously wasn't as addictive as previous incarnations of the game! Shame....who's up for classic Mario Kart! *Grabs SNES*

25-02-2004, 06:49 AM
i would say mario kart 64 was the best one. the snes one was ok. i liked the feathers.

Serpent7
25-02-2004, 04:13 PM
I repeat, WHAT HAPPENED to driving around as a bob-omb when you died in battle mode on N64?

Lee-yoshi
25-02-2004, 05:49 PM
:rolleyes:

Seriously, if you miss that feature so much...go and grab your Nintendo64 and relive the memories of...driving around as a bomb-omb! (I was hardly ever the bomb, i was class at Battle, and still am!).

As opinions seem to rule over this thread, im gonna have to agree with Ton and say the best Mario Kart was Mario Kart 64. Ah, the memories...

Serpent7
25-02-2004, 06:03 PM
I third that.

Ton
26-02-2004, 12:32 AM
i never even had that game, but i still played it a lot at parties. the gc versions of a few games r not as good as the other versions, example: ssbm to ssb, mkdd to mk64

Lee-yoshi
26-02-2004, 09:44 PM
I dunno, super smash brothers is in my opinion the best game on the Nintendo gamecube, it is SO good, much better then the original in my opinion, but like you said, there are other games that arent as good sequel wise for the Gamecube, such as Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

(Lets not forget, this is a Mario Kart: Double Dash!! thread, lets not go off topic...again!).

Hm...you seem interesting..I hope that they hold a SSBM tournament somewhere, that game would make a good tournament game. I am really good as well, with marth. 2 against one, eh? That is not problem, try three against one. I have not yet, but I plan to. I am..okay with zelda/sheik.

Let's either keep it to the Mario Kart:; Double Dash!! because if this doesn't happen, this thread could face the end!

By all means feel free to make another thread related to other games.

No way did the Cel Shading suck. It was genius :P! As for GOTY, I've got a a good idea that Half Life 2 may win

I wouldnt actually know, since I havent played either. I've heard alot of good things about Half Life, but not so many of UT. I know Half Life got GOTY once, so i think it might carry on with its reign of success :)

Hmmm...i think this thread has near enough had its fair share of of topic conversations!

In conclusion, to save new people from reading this thread from scratch, what was discovered in this thread was that Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is a great game, but lasts for little time before becoming repetitive and a bit boring, however multi-player is good fun. Previous versions of Mario Kart are better!

This thread had a long run, but now its time to apply the sacred lock of ragol.co.uk...
