    • Ridge Racer 5 Motor Error Dongle Patch

      Just curious if anyone has created a patch for Ridge Racer 5 to where it can skip over the motor error and go into the game like Midnight R.

      Ive had this set up for the longest time. I bought most of the original parts for it but yet it still refuses to start up the game. The furthest its been able to go is automatically turning the steering wheel to the left once and then releasing it followed by Motor Error 20. Although the steering assembly I have is a namco set up, it seems that in order for this game to start up, it needs the original steering wheel which is a bit ridiculous.

      If there is a way to patch the original dongle so that it can remove the motor error and start, it would be nice to be able to play this game eventually :/

      i've been curious about this steering behavior. i mean, i saw one cab, it turn to farthest left then turn farthest right. other cab, it turn only a bit angle, then release, it passed the motor test. afair, the rom version on the str pcb, were different, and so these different behavior.

      the ridge racer v, i think it was using the same str pcb, but i don't take notice the rom version.
      the same str pcb used in maximum tune 3dx. in this 3dx cabs, i found they (the str pcb) are sometimes glitchy. replug all connector sometimes worked. it might be your case.
