Once the pinnacle of racing simulation, Grand Prix 2 was even considered good enough for Formula 1 drivers such as Jacques Villeneuve to use it for training in the mid 90's. It still holds up against games decades newer, despite some of the missing features which were cut due to hardware limitations.

What a dull introduction. But hey, what else is there to say about a 90's racing sim?

Unused Sounds


There are sound effects for wet weather in the game (IDs 27, 28, and 29), but Grand Prix 2 does not have any in the final.

Sample Filename Content
SOUND27.wav Wind sounds
SOUND28.wav Wind sounds
SOUND29.wav Heavy rain


There are voice lines and sound effects for pit radio communications on various subjects in multiple languages (IDs 33 to 99). However, in the game, there is no pit radio communication at all. It seems sound 33 would be a microphone click/static sound bookending each message received.

Cut Wet Weather Options Menus


There is an unused menu background in the file F1PCSVGA.BIN depicting cars driving in the wet (at the 1994 Japanese Grand Prix, the only wet race of the season the game is based) that would likely have been used as the background for a cut wet weather screen before wet races (that don't occur in the final game). Adding credence to this are unused text strings in the main executable that it seems would have gone here:

Wet Weather
Expect a wet race

Wet Race
Do you wish to change
your car setup?

There also unused text strings to set race weather options alongside the other race option menu entries:

Race Weather
Always Dry
Always Wet
