Note: This procedure involves changing game files;
create backup copies of the files before proceeding. The following
trick will unlock all cars including the Panoz GTR 1 without winning
races and playing as a Pro. First, delete all the user driver
names in the single player menu, until told that you cannot delete
the last one. Close the game and open the "Midtown Madness"
folder. Navigate to the "players" folder. Delete all
files (there will be two ) except the "chicago" folder
and the "players.dir" file. All cars will be unlocked
when play the game. However, if a new driver is created the cars
will be locked again. Also, upon winning a game, the game automatically
shuts down, making this only useful in cruise mode.
High flying truck
Drive the Freightliner Century Class C120 (big truck)
and go to the area around Dearborn Station. Drive at least 30
mph and hit a tree. If you hit the tree exactly in the center,
you will fly up very high.
Hit building from bridge
Take a good vehicle like the Panoz-GTR, Ford Police
Special, etc. and drive about 140 mph when the bridge is lifted
up. You car should be able to hit a building next to the bridge.
Saved by the bridge
Select the Panoz Roadster in cruise mode and enable
the /bridge code. Drive forward until you pass over the
bridge and reach a nearby building on the other side. Turn around
and wait for the bridge to come up. If it does not come up extremely
fast, enable the /bridge code again. After the bridge comes
up, wait about two seconds then drive as fast as possible towards
the bridge. You should just barely make it up. Keep driving until
you fall through the hole in the middle. The bridge should come
down before you die, and you will land on it.
Land on boat in England
In England, go to the castle near the river Thames.
Drive very fast towards the bridge/ramp. If you make the jump,
you will land on a boat. Immediately hit the brakes after touching
the boat or you will fall in the water.
There is a damage meter in almost all of the cars .
You must have the view set to "In-Car", with the dashboard
showing. The meter has yellow to the left and red on the right.
The meter goes up as you crash into objects. In most cars, except
the Panoz Roadster, it will be in the lower left of the dashboard.
- Take any vehicle in cruise mode, and make the view any one of the three "C" views. Then, take the car off a bridge and land in the water. While in the air press V so that the view is in effect before you hit the water. When you are repositioned back to the start, press V again. The view will now be overhead.
- Press V to go into the free camera mode. Then press [F4] to restart the race to get into overhead view.
You can accelerate faster by holding S while
in first gear with the Cadillac El Dorado or Mustang GT with an
Backflip with car
Drive the Mustang GT in cruise mode, then enable the
/bridge code. Park the car on the bridge just in between
the white lines at the bottom. When the bridge flies open, the
car will perform a backflip. If you park in the correct location,
the car will land on its wheels. If you park a bit further, it
will attempt two backflips but will always land upside-down. If
you park up too far, you will fall through the bridge. Sometimes
a glitch happens when the car is doing the backflip and it may
stay in the air for a long time then will flip fast. Note: This
is easier to do with the /grav code enabled.
Select any smaller vehicle. Repeatedly press C during game play until you cannot see your car. Press V, then press [Esc] to restart the race, then press V again.
Drive 999 mph
Select single player mode and choose a big car. Start
the game, go to any alley, get wedged between two walls, and accelerate.
If done correctly, you will reach 999 mph.
When you start the game, go down the red line on the
map towards the Dearborn Station. Take a right on the dotted line
and turn left on yellow line. Drive straight onto the black line
and take a right. Look ahead and you should see a big gray square
wall. Drive around the wall until you see a black part on the
wall. Drive into it and you should now be in a quarry-type place.
See people's faces
Drive into a crowd. They will go against the wall.
Get the in-car view to see the people's faces.
Unlocking the Panoz-GTR easier
Begin a single player game with professional. Drive
a blitz race and use the "Disable blitz mode timer"
glitch. Drive a slow vehicle such as the city bus and destroy
the police in your way. There is a maximum bonus of 5,000 points
per race if completed successfully. Drive two or three races to
unlock the Panoz-GTR.
Drive any car in multi-player mode
Go to multi-player mode and select a serial cable connection.
Then, select "Host". When the next screen appears, select
"Cruise". Go to any desired car, then go back. Next,
select either "Blitz Race", "Checkpoint Race",
etc. When the next screen appears, the game will display your
net name and your car will be the same one that you backed out
of from the car selection screen. If you want to drive longer,
you can turn off the timer by going inside the car, looking backwards,
and then press the camera change button.
Make cars crash
- When you are driving a cop car, find another one parked on the sidewalk. Park your nose up against the nose of the other cop car. Press [Enter] to switch on your siren. Any cars
that are driving in the oncoming lane will switch lanes or crash to get away from you.
- Take any car and drive a speed above 100 mph and hit a compact car. The car will spin like a tornado and stop on the ground.
Make cars slide without touching them
Enable the /nocrash and /postal codes.
Then, use your horn to shoot mailboxes at cars.
Crash into the back of a yellow taxi cab. If done at
the correct angle, you will see the words "How am i driving"
on the back.
Disable blitz mode timer
Press [View] when a race starts to switch to the in-the-car camera. While inside, look back and press [View] again. If done correctly, the dashboard and timer will disappear. To start the timer again, enter the car and look back again.
Go into the tunnel that goes into the garage when there
are no cars in there. You will hear a honk, yelling, then a crash.
If you look back, there will be nothing there. This also happens
when you go to the road where it goes into the freeway ramp --
you will just hear a honk and yelling. Note: This only happens
in certain locations.
Drive on building
There is a dotted square on the middle part the map.
Go straight down the top dotted line and try to go around at top
speed with a light weight car. There will be a ramp when you get
to the end of the road. Hit that ramp and your car will jump very
high. Try heading for the building on the left. If you succeed,
you will be on top of the building and the background will glitch.
This jump is possible, but difficult to pull off.
Drive bus on roof
Drive the City Bus into McCormick Place and into the
garage area. Drive up one of the ramps on the inside. If done
correctly, you will be on the roof. Note: This cheat works best
with the dashboard or external view.
Drive under bus
Drive a Ford Mustang fastback and enable the /postal
and /slide codes. Go up to a city bus by a tree. Push it
while you shoot mailboxes at it. If done correctly, you will drive
under the bus.
Press [View] to select the furthest view. Then, press D to return to the in-the-car-camera. Type wvvww to remove the car, leaving only the shadow in the view.
Select the Panoz AIV Roadster, then press D followed by V during game play. Press [Esc] to restart the race and only the wheels of your car will be displayed.
Drive to the mall section (the glass enclosed building
with store outline inside). Drive through one piece of glass and
park sideways next to the inside of an unbroken piece. Go to the
external view and zoom to side of your car, as looking in from
the outside of the unbroken glass. Your car will look like it
has no wheels, as if you were floating on air.
In the tunnel with the garage inside, hit a number
of cars on to the part of the exit where the hill starts. Make
sure that half of the car is on either side of the slope going
up. Go far into the garage/parking lot area of the tunnel and
go back to the slope where you hit all the cars. If done correctly,
one of the cars should be shrunken and its wheels should be bouncing
as if it had hydraulics.
Fall through the bridges
Enable the /bridge code, then go to the middle
of a bridge. Wait for the bridge to go up and you will fall through.
Drive the city bus to McCormick Place. Go through the garage part without going on any ramps. Then, turn left to go to the rusty ramps. Go to the ramp that is pointing in the opposite direction. Go straight for it and just when you smash into it, press [Esc] to pause game play. The ramp will disappear. You can do the thing same again to also make the other ramp disappear.
- Select the Panoz Roadster and go to Navy Pier. Drive up the ramp fast. When you jump off, you will land on the cement, but it will say "Sleep with the fishes" at the top. During the next five seconds, your camera will be the chase/helicopter view.
- When you are on the highway with low traffic with a Panoz GTR1, drive about 200 km/h then hit a small car. The small car will flip and tumble before finally landing on its back.
- Enable the /grav code. Crash a car and it will rotate on the road. If that car hits the other cars, the other cars also will rotate. If you hit heavy vehicles you can push or carry the vehicles. Note: This does not happen when you hit police cars.
