KNIGHT RIDER WALHTROUGH BY ADK : Hi everyone, I'm back this time on a PC guide. I continue my way on sega consoles and will produce other walkthrough of old games but for the moment i concentrate on some PC games. Version 1.0 : The walktrough is complete, i will add new stuff later. Final version : Added a review and usual stuffs of my faqs. Visit my homepage : http://www.dimensions-sega.fr.st E mail me at : email@example.com Contents : 1 Review 2 The about section 3 Characters 4 Walkthrough 5 Tips 6 Credits 1 Review : Discovering a game based on old Knight Rider is like a dream that comes true. I always tried to play the knight riders game of other console or computer but couldn't put a hand on them. Thsi one is surely made by fans judging the quality of the game. In Knight Rider you control Kitt which is a pwoerful computer and vehicle. The pilot is Michael knight and basically you will take his role in this game. I know that testing a game on PC is hard due to the fact that everyone has a different config. I won't lie about this, i ahev a powerful one and i run the game with all the options to the maximum and in a 1024*768*32 resolution. Graphically the game is good. The track where you run are various and based on the TV Show. I mean by this that you will wander on the same long and desert road than in the TV Show. Sometimes you will find some cars on the way, there are not much of them but it's fun to zap them at high speed or with the ski mode. You hear them horning you in this case. The animation is smooth (ok i have a powerful graphic card and a powerful processor). You can increase the speed during the game by gaining a turbo. It's only available for the final missions but it's a cool feature. I greatly appreciate the camera in the game with lot of view and special movements when you do a jump inside a window or above a truck. It's exaclty as in the TV Show. The musics are interessant but i remember only the one of the tunnel stages. The rest is essentially an atmosphere based BGM. I give a large credits to the voice acting. the european version of this game is multilanguage and in french you can hear the same voice acting as in the TV Show for Michael Knight. The other character inherited of good voices except for Devon. There are however some strange fact like Gart Knight has not the voice of Michael with an evil ton and the voice of the guy in the generic is not the one of Michael Knight but of another actor well known in France. The controls are reduced to the minimum. However the Ski Mode is terrible and you can't control Kitt correctly. I prefer using the jump function. Now i come to the game itself, i can say that's an easy one, you will complete it in an afternoon. The game is still bugged. Sometimes, if Kitt falls incorrectly on the ground, it simply freezes. As the save function works by stage and not point by point, you will have sometimes to restart the entire level. I really appreciate the timeline related to the TV Show and also some facts like Gart Knight driving Karr. It's things i would like to see on TV. Last and it's probably the most important thing, you play and watch Kitt as you will never see it in the TV Show. I won't say more to let you discover it but it's really valuable. Finally, this game is not 100% perfect. It's cool to ride Kitt but some infiltrations phase with Michael missed to be exactly in the spirit of the saga. It's impossible to customize Kitt or to repair it if it's damaged, you lose and restart the stage. A larger scenario with some extra missions or hidden level missed also. Anyway i like this game and i recommend to buy it if you are looking for a cool driving game.

Conclusion : if you download my faqs, be sure to download the updates as you do for an emulator. It will work better for everyone. 3 Characters : Michael Knight : The hero. Bonnie : The girl who repairs and upgrades Kitt. Devon Miles : The CEO of the foundation. Gart Knight : The true son of Wilton Knight and the rival of Michael. Kitt : The so known car. Karr : Its evil counterpart. 4 Walkthrough : Mission Training : The first exercise is to enter the truck... Now exit and do a regular course in the time. Once done, go to the truck. The second exercise is to use the ski mode. You find the track just behind the truck. This exercise is tricky and you can be stucked in the game if Kitt falls on the small path. In this case reset, sorry...After the exercise go back to the truck. The third exercise uses the Turbo booster and the track is near the one for the ski mode. After the exercise, go back to the truck. The fourth exercise uses the scanner. Go to the location on the map and you will find 3 possibles target. You must approach of each one and scan the building. I found the computer on the second location on the far end of this area. *Maybe* it's random. Anyway, go east of this location and scan the small computer. Now go back to the truck. The final exercise is an obstacles course. You will run at high speed, jump ahead a barrier or use the ski mode to pass between 2 walls. Mission 1 : This mission is here for fun. You will chase as in Chase HQ a car. Avoid the mines and other cars on the road and keep an eye on the damage gauge. The rest is fun, jump and action. The car will be stopped by the police. Mission 2 : Some robbers attack a bank. Kitt and Michael goes to the bank. Near the bank you watch a cutscene. Approach of the bank and scan it. You have found the root of the signal. Go to the industrial area. Enter it. Pass under the giant water tower to line up with the building you must jump on to reach the antenna. Once near the antenna scan it. Last you will have to fight a car, it's an easy battle. Mission 3 : Now you must chase a car which has the informations you need. Once you damage it, you can scan the wheels. Go to G-industrie anbd scan the building. You have a limited time after this to save the information that is erased by a virus. Hurry up to the truck. Mission 4 : It's sunday, a good day to spy G-industrie. Go there. You must scan the east side of the building. You find that there is a computer inside. You must reach it. First go to west side of the building and use the boxes to jump in the factory. Now use the map to find a place where you will use the ski mode to access to a new area. You see some road going up. use the one with an open door on the top of it (the large track, not the small one) and go inside the building, jump to the next roof and until you can reach the system (K2000 or Tomb Raider ?). Then scan the system. You must bring the data to the computer to analyse it. Go back to the area you came from and you find a new building open. Go inside and scan the data. Now use the second track that goes up and hurry up if you don't want to loose. I suggest a jump to destroy the wall and to have a better effect. Mission 5 : You have received a signal identical to the one of Kitt. First run to the antenna (root of this signal). Now you must go to a location designated by ... Karr himself. Once you are there it's over. Mission 6 : Now you must do a race against Karr. You must complete 2 laps of the training track . Don't hesitate to hit Karr in order to win. Michael won't do that probably in the TV show, but you are not Michael and we are in a video game. Anyway at full speed you are faster than Karr. Mission 7 : You must chase Karr in the desert. Jump, use the ski mode in actions and avoid some mines. At the end of the course, Karr enter a mine and Kitt must use his night mode to follow him. Mission 8 : You will have to fight Goliath and destroy it, First avoid him until your shield is up again and second hit Goliath on the sides which are its weak point. Garth Will run into an helico. Mission 9 : You must follow the helico, meaning that if you are ahead of him slow down to see where it goes. Basically you can run to the end of this track but where will be the fun. Avoid the bombs and jump or use the ski mode in time. Mission 10 : Not much to say. identical to Mission 9. Mission 11 : Now you can use the Super Pursuit Mode. You must reach the helico before it takes off. To reach the helico you must use some boxes parked near a building lined up with the one near the heliport. Jump on it and jump on the roof. From this roof jump to the other roof straight of you. Now, turn left and jump to the helico. Scan it twice. You can go down now. Exit of this factory and scan first the point in the street. Go back to the roof you use to access the building lined up to the helico and this time, jump to the roof on the right. from this roof jump to the roof you see near. Now you can use the ski mode or directly jump to the next roof. Go up on the short road and jump to another roof and to another one to reach the second factory. Jump on a roof straight of you. Go to the ground and scan the 2 locations here. Now go the roof you were before descending and look for a window. You need to jump in. Break the other window and you reach the last building. Scan it. It's not over yet. Ride your car til a pile of boxes you can use as stairs to reach the roof. Look at the first factory, you will see your goal. Jump to the first factory from the highest roof you can reach. Now find the entrance of the building. There is a cutscene. Follow the way and jump on the boxes. Last jump in the window straightforward to complete this difficult mission full of bugs. Mission 12 : You enter the G-Industrie. First find the control panel and scan it. Now enter the building and use the lift. You arrived in a tunnel. Run through it, avoid the traps and jump, it's very fun and the time limit is oppressive (a little but not that much if you use the Super Pursuit Mode). Mission 13 : Same as mission 12. This time, the timer will be shortest. Cool stage. Mission 14 : This will be the last mission, it's a battle against Karr and this one is difficult. Karr fights well and can win even in easy mode. The battle is hardest in normal and super mode due to the damage gauge sensitivity. Method submitted by Aryon : "Keep KITT's distance from KARR until he is directly in line with KARR. Accelerate, then whilst in Super Pursuit Mode, smash head-on into KARR. KARR comes off worst. Afterwards I would recommend using Super Pursuit Mode to get well away from KARR, to give yourself time to reposition yourself, then repeat. KARR seems to have a flaw, staying close to KARR makes it harder for him to hit KITT, so it is possible to stay close to KARR and hit him and still do damage, just as long as you don't give KARR a chance to hit you first." Congratulations hero ! 5 Tips : Submitted by Aryon (thanks alot) : "I have been playing Knight Rider The Game for a while now, and I feel that KITT's top speed is a bit slow. For those fans of the game who would like KITT to have a greater top speed, I have detailed below how this can be done: In your main Knight Rider directory, edit the file kittphysics_0.ini file in the data\vehicle subdirectory, as follows: Under the Section headed ENGINEDATA, update the following values: Increase EngineHP to 220 (By all means experiment increasing this value, but if it is too high, then KITT becomes too hard to steer at slow speeds. Increase MaxSpeed to 405 (any higher and KITT becomes too hard to steer at maximum speed) The above information will increase KITT's speed as follows: Maximum Cruising Speed: 162 MPH. Maximum Super Pursuit Mode: 228 MPH (This value seems to be hard-locked into the game and can't be increased.) I believe the above information makes KITT more realistic, speed-wise, to the series and I hope fans of the game will enjoy this advice." 6 Credits : Thanks to the programmers of this game who are fans of the TV Show. Thanks to Aryon for the method to defeating KARR and the tips. This walkthrough is copyrighted 2003. ASk for permission to post it on your site. ADK.
