Enthusia Professional Racing was Konami's first attempt at a simulation racing game, with a diverse car selection, good driving physics, rather frustrating difficulty and car sounds that would make Gran Turismo 4 blush. Unfortunately, its lack of promotion, its release period and poor sales meant that this game would be Konami's last attempt at a simulation racing game.

Hmmm...
To do:
Because this game's data archive is all over the place with its data, it won't be too easy to sift through everything, but...
  • I'm almost certain there's more leftover textures of an older build of the game.
  • Figure out how to open .SDA audio files and see if there's anything unused.
  • If anyone can get a hold of the Subaru STI demo released in Japan, check and see what's unused in that.
  • Also sniff around the OPS2M Issue 59 demo and the Official US PlayStation Magazine 91 demo
  • Document the Car Debug feature.

Unused Graphics

Old screenshots

Two relatively random screenshots lie around in the files, both of which seem to be a relatively old build of the game. Bizarrely enough, both have completely different fonts for the timer text and the current lap timer differs by one one-thousandth of a second, but are completely identical otherwise.

Unused copyright text

The copyright text on the start menu has extra text not used. The "& Konami Computer Entertainment Studios" portion of the texture goes unused, and more interestingly, there's a version left over with a copyright date of 2004!
