Proto:Driver (PlayStation)/V4.11

This is a sub-page of Proto:Driver (PlayStation).

This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.

This page details one or more prototype versions of Driver (PlayStation).


Unlike the final version, there's no title screen and intro FMV when starting the game. The loading screen has 'loading time to be optimised' text, reused from the Mar 31st Demo:

The loading screen before loading missions lacks GT Interactive's logo:

FMV's are played after the mission is over instead of in the beginning.

In the main menu, Punch Bowl by Alan Parker is played. If you return to the main menu after going in-game, no music will be played anymore. This music track will later be featured only in the PC version of the game.

View Chases is called Rushes, just like in the demo version:

Take a Ride mode has different spawn positions:

damage & felony are lowercase instead of with capital letter like in the final builds.

Player cars have more damage compared to final version.

Player position display is turned on by default.

Unfortunately, Newcastle (CREDITS) level in this build appears to be corrupted and is currently unplayable.

In the motel flat, an extra string is printed in blue - V4.11(PAL)(XA)(FMV):

Quit back to Titlescreen is Quit back to Title Screen in the final game:

Cut Features

There is a glitchy car selection mode before few missions:

It is completely cut from the final version, however this feature made it into the PC version.

Debug Pause Menu

Invincible Car disables car damage and Immunity disables cops from chasing you. When toggled damage & felony bars are replaced by Invincible Car & Immunity respectively:

Reset Car resets the current rotation.

Fix Car repairs the car immediately.

CHEAT skips the current mission and plays the next one. Only works as intended in Undercover mode. If used in Take a Ride mode or Driving Games modes, it will skip to main menu. If used in Undercover's Take a Ride mode, it will skip to the motel.
