4x4 Evolution (also known as 4x4EVO, codenamed Metal Crush 3) is a video game developed by Terminal Reality for the Windows, Macintosh, PlayStation 2 and Dreamcast platforms. It is the first console game to have cross-platform online play where Dreamcast, Macintosh and PC versions of the game appear online at the same time. The game can use maps created by users to download onto a hard drive, and surprisingly a Dreamcast VMU. All games are similar in quality and gameplay although the online systems feature a mode to customize the players' own truck and use it online. This game is still able to play online with all but the Sony Playstation 2 systems.

[edit] Hints

[edit] Edit Cash

First go into the game and play a bit to earn a little extra cash, at least $10,000.00 or so. Now sell your truck. Your should have somewhere near $40,000.00.

Look in your directory for the following file: "C:\programs\Terminal Reality\4x4 Evolution\system\metal.ini"

..open the (metal.ini) file using notepad listed in your accessories folder in Windows. Now save the file in a temporary folder or on your desktop. Go back into the game and buy a vehicle and some of the parts you want. When your cash is low, do the following:

Exit the game and go back into your temporary folder and open the file named metal.ini and look for a line that says: Cash=(followed by a series of numbers and letters)

I think the string is specific to the your player profile. Select the line and copy it. (now this is important only select the line that says Cash=(and the string of characters following the equal sign) not the entire file). Now open the metal.ini file in your:

C:\programs\Terminal Reality\4x4 Evolution\system\metal.ini

and look for a line that says: Cash=(followed by a series of numbers and letters)

Select that line and paste over it the line you copied from the previous file.

Now save the file and exit notepad. Go back into the game and like magic you just padded your wallet again. If you want more cash, like say enough to buy one of race trucks, just sell your truck again and repeat all of the steps above. Remember every time you save the current:

C:\programs\Terminal Reality\4x4 Evolution\system\metal.ini

...your increasing the amount of cash you have. You can just keep doubling the amount of money you have by buying several trucks, pasting a new line in and then selling the trucks you bought. Saving that current file into your temporary folder and then buy more trucks and parts and on and on and on until you have the amount of cash you want.

If you would like to get instant cash without doing this trick, try putting in: "re25ykP*g*bCbqRqz*zb1xPz1P+" behind the cash= line to get $2.5 million. (omit the quotes)
