    Drive outside boundaries

    Look for gaps in the corners of walls. When you have found one drive a minimum of 2 blocks away from the gap. drive towards the gap. keep trying until you suceed.(is easier with invincibility) When on other side of boundary find the ocean and keep driving ontil the map dissapears.( the game will occasionally stop working for a couple seconds)

    Unlock all cheat(Edit)

    Edit file DRIVER/DATA/MLADDER.DML WARNING!!! Back up the file before you do this. Use notepad or something like that to open it. Find the line "#President render RENDER 70". Then delete everything above it above it except for the header. Then start the game as normal, choose a new game and then wait a little. I little movie will play and then the credits, but you can skip them by pressing Esc. Then you should have all the cheat on the cheat menu.

    Hacks (DEMO of Driver Only)

    Hacking Code
    Go into your Driver Demo Directory, and then go into the
    scripts/missions/ There should be a file by the name of
    "Mission661.dms" (make a backup of this file before making changes):
    Edit that file. Inside you'll find when cops appear,
    your damage, the time, and you can also change how your car looks.
    Unlimited damage:
    Take out the following lines:
    MaxPlayerDamage 24576 file://( 0 ->4096*6 is range)
    Unlimited time:
    Take out the following lines:
    DebugInfo 1
    Countdown 70 file://UK 60 seconds USA 70 seconds
    Change the weather:
    Add any combination of these in a space following
    the "FelonyBarId 195" line:
    Snowing (doesn't seem to do anything, but loads
    as a valid argument)
    Change your car:
    Replace the "0" (zero) in "PlayerCarType 0" to one
    of the following numbers:
    0 - Original Car
    1 - Crew Cab Pickup
    2 - "Luxury"/Pimp Coupe
    3 - Sports Coupe
    4 - Camaro? (Fast)
    5 - Toronado
    6 - Nova?
    7 - Cadillac Sedan
    8 - Bonneville?
    9 - Chevelle?
    10 - L.A.P.D. Caprice Cruiser (Horn activates
    lights and siren)
    11 - Cadillac? Coupe
    12 - Firebird/Camaro Z28
    13 - Taxi
    14 - Cadillac Sedan
    15 - Error - Do not use
    16 - Jaguar (CrazyFast: 170+)
    17 - '55 Thunderbird (CrazyFast)
    Disable the "Lose The Tail" mission:
    Delete or comment out the following lines (Note: These
    are scattered throughout the file, with important stuff
    in-between, so don't just delete everything!):
    SetMaximumCops 0
    Cop_Respawn 65000
    Cops_Immortal 0
    //SpawnCops 1, 3067, 45609, 441019
    AddCivCar 9,0,1,0,3067, 45609, 441019
    ForceFelonyRating 1
    InformPlayerById 5,103
    Set Objective 2
    MustBeHidden 1 //Must arrive at drop off point without a tail
    NeedToLoseTail 1
    OuterRadius 1000000


    InformPlayerById 5,3
    wait 2
    Disabling the Lose The Tail will enable "prowling" cops.
    Set the number of cops you wish to have chasing you by
    changing the number in the line "SetMaximumCops 1" (I
    find three is a pretty good number), or disable cops by
    changing "Cops_on" to "Cops_off".
    You can also add the line: "CopWipeOutDamage 7000" to
    set the amount of damage it takes to destroy a Cop
    Cruiser (If this line is not present, it takes about
    one solid head-on crash to destroy a cop).
    Place a "trigger cop":
    Allows you to drive freely without -any- cop intervention
    until activated. To enable this, do -not- delete the line:
    "AddCivCar 9,0,1,0,3067, 45609, 441019"
    This will cause an unactive police cruiser to be placed
    directly behind your starting position, who will remain
    inactive unless provoked, thereby activating -all- of the cops.
    Reach 204mph:
    First of all select the Jaguar (Car type 16).
    Start game as normal, find a nice long road, build up
    speed to around 100-110mph.
    Release the accelrator (And Burn Out if you're using it).
    Hold down the cruise control key (C I think is the default).
    Instead of slowing down to cruise speed (30-40mph), your
    car will carry on speeding up, past its usual 178mph or
    so, we hit 204mph, but we ran out of road (Ouch that
    wall hurt), maybe you can get more out of it!

    About the missions

    All the mission-scripts for the game are found in the folder \Missions. I made a complete list of all the mission-scripts and added the names and level-numbers. Mission-scripts in italics should be left alone and mission-scripts with a # are suitable for a little bit of tinkering (Always make back-up copies of them, in a separate folder !!) I added some of my own comments behind two back-slashes (\\).

    400+ MPH

    First use the "Unlock all cheats" cheat or beat the game.Then set the cheat "fast cars", "freight train", and "no damage" to on. Then take a drive. Choose the Jaguar or the Thunderbird. Find a nice long straight road (New York has a good one). Then start at one end. Accelerate until reaching upper 200's then press and hold the cruise. Caution: Car will wheelie and you will be left without steering with front in air. Tap on the gas repeatingly to keep front down.

    Bomb-Transport (Driver Demo)

    Put the following lines into your mission.661 file

    PlayerCarType 4
    OpponentBar "KaBOOM"
    FailedMessage "KaBOOM"

    this will give you a pickup (With the performance of the camaro)with a box on the rear
    The box will blow up if you drive to rough

    It works for me.

    About the weather

    As far as I was able to find out, there are 7 different types of weather conditions. Behind each type you'll find the cities in which they function. Just add the type you want in the mission-script after DamageBarId and FelonyBarId.

    DAWN (Miami, Frisco,NewYork, Newcastle)
    NIGHT (All cities)
    DUSK (Miami, Frisco, NewYork, Newcastle)
    RAINING (All cities)
    LIGHTNING (All cities)
    SNOWING (New York only)
    FOGGY (none)

    "foggy" is a valid weather-condition, but I just don't seem to succeed in getting it in a mission-script. It can only be included when dept-cueing of smoke is fixed in fogging.
