Add these command-line switches to activate cheat modes:
-allrace - Access to All Races
-allcars - Access to All Cars
Here we go! ok this cheat is based to unlock all the cars & races, You can
unlockthe cars like that Example:
"C:\Midtown\midtown.exe" -allcars -allrace
First, one has to open the file "ui.ar" in the Midtown madness directory. At
the bottom of the file, one can find the different things such as the placing
in the race required to unlock the next set of races as well as how many races
it unlocks. There is also the stuff where you can choose how many races you
must complete to unlock the cars such as the Panoz GTR-1. Below are the exact
co-ordinates of the different vehicles (the offsets may vary in different
hex editors, but not by much):
The placing in the race to unlock the next race - 012f7b36
How many races it unlocks at once - 012f7b4a
VW New Beetle - 012f7b5e
City Bus - 012f7c30
Cadillac Eldorado - 012f7d02
Ford Mustang Cruiser - 012f7dde
Ford F-350 - 012f7eb0
Ford Mustang Fastback - 012f782
Ford Mustang GT - 012f805e
Panoz GTR-1 - 012f813a
Panoz Roadster - 012f822a
Freightliner Century - 012f82fc
Just read from the ANSI text part and edit what one wants. Basically, what
everyone whould want is to unlock every vehicle. Simple.
Just set the "Unlock Flags" part to "Unlock Flags=0" or 00. In the Panoz GTR-1,
set the unlock score to 0000. Even an amateur can drive that car then. It should
be pretty simple to edit what one wants other than that.
No timer in Blitz mode:
This cheat makes the timer in blitz mode disappear. It also makes the dashbord
disappear. When you are starting the race press your view button and go inside
the car. When you are inside look back and while you are doing that press your
view button again. Now the timer will be gone. But if you want your time
registered, you simply go in the car and just look back. The timer will be
This code can also be used on any other race to get a very good time.
Tip: If you're finding traffic hard to navigate, get off the road and onto the
sidewalk. Most of the vehicles can drive quite nicely on the sidewalks between
the guardrails and the lampposts, and you'll find a clear path (this works very
well out on Navy Pier). Also, don't worry about crashing into those massive
checkpoint posts on the sidewalk--they're invisible (collision-wise) to your
Tip: If you get into a bump-and-grind situation with an AI car, you'll find
yourself losing most of the tussles, even if you have the bigger vehicle. The
best tactic is to quickly sideswipe the car, and then swerve away. If you time
it right, you can bump the car into oncoming traffic or a building.
Tip: The AI-controlled drivers always stay on the road, which means that you'll
have great opportunities to cut a few corners here and there (remember, Chicago
has plenty of parks!). When you're off-road driving, slow down a bit and try not
to make any turns. If you try anything wild on the soft grass, you'll probably
spin out and lose any advantage you might have gained.
Tip: To win a race, especially a Checkpoint race, you need to know the course.
Take on the course in one of the heavier vehicles with no cops and limited
traffic, and you'll maximize your chances of making it through the course and
learning all of the possible shortcuts. You won't win, but you'll gain vital
knowledge that will help you when you go back into the race with a performance
vehicle and full obstacles in place.
Tip: Vehicle damage is your enemy! There are so many things to hit during the
course of the race that you'll often find yourself with a wheelless, smoking
hulk of a car before you can finish the race. Try to save your damage points
for when you really need them (such as making that jump across Navy Pier) and
avoid hitting too many lampposts.
There is a damage meter in almost all of the cars. You must have the view set
to "In-Car", with the dashboard showing. The meter has yellow to the left and
red on the right. The meter goes up as you crash into objects. In most cars,
except the Panoz Roadster, it will be in the lower left of the dashboard.
Select any smaller vehicle. Repeatedly press "C" during game play until you
cannot see your car. Press V, then press [Esc] to restart the race, then
press "V" again.
Drive 999 mph:
Select single player mode and choose a big car. Start the game, go to any alley,
get wedged between two walls, and accelerate. If done correctly, you will reach
Disable blitz mode timer:
Press [View] when a race starts to switch to the in-the-car camera. While inside,
look back and press [View] again. If done correctly, the dashboard and timer will
disappear. To start the timer again, enter the car and look back again.
Drive on building:
There is a dotted square on the middle part the map. Go straight down the top
dotted line and try to go around at top speed with a light weight car. There
will be a ramp when you get to the end of the road. Hit that ramp and your car
will jump very high. Try heading for the building on the left. If you succeed,
you will be on top of the building and the background will glitch. This jump
is possible, but difficult to pull off.
Drive bus on roof:
Drive the City Bus into McCormick Place and into the garage area. Drive up one
of the ramps on the inside. If done correctly, you will be on the roof.
Note: This cheat works best with the dashboard or external view.
Press [View] to select the furthest view. Then, press D to return to the
in-the-car-camera. Type wvvww to remove the car, leaving only the shadow in
Select the Panoz AIV Roadster, then press D followed by V during game play.

To perform stunts above water ,go near UI Area and there will be a slider touching from
the ground to the air. To try this stunt, Clear the Traffic Density,Cop Density and
Pedestrian Density and select the Cruise Mode and select the Panoz Roadster and go at a
speed of 140 - 160 kmph and you will see that you will jump over the water from one road
to another. Make sure that while doing this stunt do not use the brake and you dont fall
in the water.
Sliding in Corners:
When you are going through a corner and keep sliding to where counter-steering dosn't
work press the "R" button to put the automatic transmission into reverse. Get the
timing right and you can go into a turn in a Panoz Roadster and come out with little
or no damage. Just make sure you put the car back into gear. This works well with the
Panoz Roadster and pretty well with the Mustang GT.

Land on boat in England:
In England, go to the castle near the river Thames. Drive very fast towards the bridge/
ramp. If you make the jump, you will land on a boat. Immediately hit the brakes after
touching the boat or you will fall in the water.
When you start the game, go down the red line on the map towards the Dearborn Station.
Take a right on the dotted line and turn left on yellow line. Drive straight onto the
black line and take a right. Look ahead and you should see a big gray square wall.
Drive around the wall until you see a black part on the wall. Drive into it and you
should now be in a quarry-type place.
Go into the tunnel that goes into the garage when there are no cars in there. You will
hear a honk, yelling, then a crash. If you look back, there will be nothing there. This
also happens when you go to the road where it goes into the freeway ramp -- you will
just hear a honk and yelling.
Note: This only happens in certain locations.
In the tunnel with the garage inside, hit a number of cars on to the part of the exit
where the hill starts. Make sure that half of the car is on either side of the slope
going up. Go far into the garage/parking lot area of the tunnel and go back to the slope
where you hit all the cars. If done correctly, one of the cars should be shrunken and
its wheels should be bouncing as if it had hydraulics.
Picking the right car for the job:
In some races, the ability to go offroad is immeasurable, as is the durability of the
car. The Mustang and the Panoz are fast, but they are quite fragile. The Ford F-350,
on the other hand, is one big hunk of a car. Not very maneuverable, sure, but heck of
a durable truck, and it can go offroad! Perfect for driving through the park in winter.
Nasty trick: build your own roadblocks:
You're well ahead in a durable car (probably by taking a shortcut) but the other
competitors in more fragile cars are coming up fast? Create some roadblocks by
sideswiping some traffic cars. The traffic cars will skid to a stop, hopefully right
into the path of the competitors.

We can play cops and robbers in cruise mode. ask how? I will tell you. first, customize
the pedestrian density (don't customize the traffic and cop density). Then, select any car
of your choice except the ford mustang cruiser. After that, drive any where in the cruise
mode till the cops run behind you. At last, you can play cops and robbers in the cruise mode.
(But you can play in the robber mode only)
