Default NAKR Archives - Stuff prepared but never released

NAKR was bigger than what we got
When NAKR closed, a lot more content than playable was prepared for a North American / English release.
Sadly, we never got to see it, since one stupid company called Nexon America decided to kill off a great game.

Much of that content could easily be figured out by looking at the game pack file names.
What I post here from time to time is interesting stuff found inside those packs, in more or less raw form, which is buried since almost 10 years now.

Remember this intro?

Want to check on something special?
You can request English translations for an item of interest or info about a specific feature, and I'll try to find the translations or check if the feature was there, and how far it was prepared for NAKR.

All English Track Names
For the start, here's the list of all English track names: Note how they already translated Galaxy, Mine and Factory themes. Also note how all tracks with the "blocked" attribute set to 1 were kept away from our eyes and karts.

Knew it. Nexon just didn't know how to handle KartRider's release at the time. Hopefully they can come to their senses after this: http://www.mmorpg.com/news/update-ju...ica-1000042737

I doubt there's still hope for KR.
At least they have to put some work into it again.

All clients ship with each others translations, but the US translations have been removed since some time and only very few (less than in NAKR itself) are still there.

That would be hilarious if Nexon actually found out how to handle KartRider & it made a huge comeback and became one of the biggest games worldwide.

Not with that 1024x768 1 diffuse texture only crappy graphics these days anymore :(
It does run flawlessy in higher resolutions, they layouted the UI to work well with 2560x1440 for example. Just the graphics / textures itself are really lowres / low quality:P

Yup. I agree. Changes are needed, but hopefully they come - along with a PC version of Kart. Watch Mario Kart get smart and drop a PC version similar to KartRider and $$$ from Nexon's mess up. Don't think it'll ever happen, but somebody is bound to profit from this sort of game.
