The new generation remaster of Burnout Revenge, released about 6 months after the PlayStation 2 and Xbox version. It brings a whole new look to the Burnout series with high-definition graphics, more detailed car damage, and bloom, lots of bloom lighting. Also the same three car engine noises are used for every car.

A decent amount of unused stuff found in this release can also be found in the previous generation release.

Debug Options

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Quickstart menu codes.
  • CarViewer visual debugging codes.

The codes below work for all currently known regional releases.

Quick Start

BRevenge360-FIN QuickstartMenu.png

A debug quick start menu that lets you enter any map in any event. All of the locations use their real life names for easy reference, and is a leftover from early builds of the game.

Visual Options

BRevenge360-FIN DebugOptions.png
BRevenge360-FIN DrawBodyHulls+DrawCircle+DrawBox.png
BRevenge360-FIN CB4PhysicsManagerDebug-DrawVehicleAsHull.png

Many different visual debugging options. Each option's effect can be seen individually here, except for CB4PhysicsManagerDebug::DrawVehicleAsHull which is exclusive to this version. DrawCircle and DrawBox are normally enabled by default on the previous generation release.

The codes that are in a smaller font written in the same row only have any effect if the code above it is active.

Unused Graphics

Unused PlayStation 2 & Xbox Leftovers

A few unused textures from the previous generation ended up making its way onto the Xbox 360 release here. Some were even redesigned to be higher quality, despite being unused.


BRevenge360-FIN FeMain-b4choiceiconnav-crashtour.png

Crash Tour

FeMain.bin\b4choiceiconnav\crashtour.tif

During the development of the PS2 and Xbox version, Crash Tours were meant to have a singleplayer variant as well, before being cut and only left as a multiplayer only gamemode. This texture for some reason was still redesigned to be higher resolution, despite going unused yet again.


BRevenge360-FIN Global-HUD.png

Early Burnout 3: Takedown HUD

Global.txd\HUD

It's a leftover of a leftover of a yet another leftover!


BRevenge360-FIN Global-check.png

Checkpoint

Global.txd\check

The same unused checkpoint texture found in the previous release, but with extra dithering this time.


BRevenge360-FIN FEMAIN.BIN-b4maplight-roadLight.tif.png
BRevenge360-FIN FEMAIN.BIN-b4maplight-lensFlare.tif.png

Map Marker

FeMain.bin\b4maplight\roadLight.tif

FeMain.bin\b4maplight\lensFlare.tif

During earlier stages of development, there used to be a world map graphic that'd display what location the selected track is based on, and it'd be pinpointed on the map with this marker with a lens flare.


BRevenge360-FIN FeMain-detroit-Detroit01 L1.png
BRevenge360-FIN FeMain-detroit-Detroit01 L1a.png

Early Motor City

FeMain.bin\detroit\Detroit01_L1.tif

This texture is left over from very early development stages of Burnout Revenge. The final Xbox 360 release uses various shots of the area and the final previous generation release uses a yellow trailed dot over the track overviews. This more closely resembles to how Burnout 3: Takedown would display tracks.

Normally the background would be hidden and only the actual track would be seen, but they have been exported both with and without the alpha channel masking, to get a look at the early city overview.


PlayStation 2 & Xbox Leftovers

Track Overviews

As mentioned above, the previous generation had an overview texture to show the track. Those graphics are still present in the Xbox 360 release. These are stored as two separate textures, 1st one being 128×256 and the other one being 512×256. They're meant to go together, with the 2nd larger texture coming first and create a single 640×256 overview graphic.

Revenge Bar

Global.txd\REVENGEbar

The old revenge ranking bar, redesigned to be higher quality, yet it went unused in favor of a different revenge bar.


Background UI Elements

A good amount of the previous generation releases UI is still present in the files. Some textures have more to show when exported without the alpha channel masking, those are shown on the opposite side of the texture.

InGame##.bin\* refers to InGameCR.bin, InGameCT.bin, InGameGP.bin, InGameM2.bin, InGameMP.bin, InGameOn.bin and InGameSP.bin.

Unused Sounds

PlayStation 2 & Xbox Leftovers

There's a decent amount of sounds found in this release that are remnants of the original PlayStation 2 and Xbox release. A few of the filenames seem to indicate they were meant to be reused for online, but are likely just placeholders.

Medal Awards

The game normally uses an identical award sound for all three, Bronze, Silver and Gold medals that are located in Gen_HUD.xwb\MDL0#____L11, where # is replaced with either 1, 2 or 3. The individual event containers have completely different medal sounds that aren't used in-game.

Interestingly, while they do work as intended in-game if they are edited back into Gen_HUD.xwb, during the ranking screen it only plays MDL01____L11 for some odd reason.

Unused Text

$Production

There is an unused string with the ID DE8A05EF that's meant to display on the main menu. It can be seen being used in the early PS2 & Xbox demo builds, but in all subsequent builds and releases, the string remained blank.

"Why Smart People Defend Bad Ideas"

FeMain.bin\news contains the first three paragraphs of Why Smart People Defend Bad Ideas, an essay written by Scott Berkun.

We all know someone that’s intelligent, but who occasionally defends obviously bad ideas. Why does this happen? How can smart people take up positions that defy any reasonable logic? Having spent many years working with smart people I’ve catalogued many of the ways this happens, and I have advice on what to do about it. I feel qualified to write this essay as I’m a recovering smart person myself and I’ve defended several very bad ideas. So if nothing else this essay serves as a kind of personal therapy session. However, I fully suspect you’ll get more than just entertainment value (“Look, Scott is stupider than we thought!”) out of what I have to say on this topic.Success at defending bad ideasThe monty python argument sketchI’m not proud to admit that I have a degree in Logic and Computation from Carnegie Mellon University. Majoring in logic is not the kind of thing that makes people want to talk to you at parties, or read your essays. But one thing I did learn after years of studying advanced logic theory is that proficiency in argument can easily be used to overpower others, even when you are dead wrong. If you learn a few tricks of logic and debate, you can refute the obvious, and defend the ridiculous. If the people you’re arguing with aren’t as comfortable in the tactics of argument, or aren’t as arrogant as you are, they may even give in and agree with you. The problem with smart people is that they like to be right and sometimes will defend ideas to the death rather than admit they’re wrong. This is bad. Worse, if they got away with it when they were young (say, because they were smarter than their parents, their friends, and their parent’s friends) they’ve probably built an ego around being right, and will therefore defend their perfect record of invented righteousness to the death. Smart people often fall into the trap of preferring to be right even if it’s based in delusion, or results in them, or their loved ones, becoming miserable. (Somewhere in your town there is a row of graves at the cemetery, called smartypants lane, filled with people who were buried at poorly attended funerals, whose headstones say “Well, at least I was right.”)
