demo v demolition Edit

For anyone who wants to be pedantic about the nomenclature, the event is called "Demolition Derby" on the map, so I have changed most references to "Demo Derby" to "Demolition Derby". However, the unlockable vehicles are referred to as "Demo Derby Vehicles", therefore it is not incorrect to refer to them as such.
Here is an almost complete list of references to each name, from the game files.

  • "MULTI_PRESET_DERBY_DESC": "Leave nothing but scrap metal behind you, it's time for the Demo Derby."
  • "STAT_DEMO_DERBY_CARS_DESTROYED": "Demo Derby: Number of cars destroyed"
  • "STAT_DEMO_DERBY_DAMAGE_DONE": "Demo Derby: Damage done"

  • "UNL_DEMO_DEBRY_WHOLE2_EVENT": "Demo Derby Level 6"
  • "UNL_DEMO_DERBY_WHOLE2": "Demo Derby Vehicles"
  • "UNL_DESC_DEMO_DERBY_WHOLE2": "You have unlocked the upgraded demo derby vehicles. Access them at your crib garages."

Unknown icon - Multiplayer? Edit

I need info about the multiplayer derby. Does your co-op partner appear in the HUD at all? There's a extra Homie called called "ui_hud_recruit_misc_derby" Ui homie misc derby. -452 19:50, April 28, 2011 (UTC)

Here's some fairly high quality footage here. It seems your co-op partner's health appears next to yours. – Moozipan Cheese(talk page) 14:49, December 21, 2011 (UTC)
More than a year after the initial question, I searched the game text for the term. It doesn't appear anywhere, therefore the icon is not used in the game. Perhaps originally it was planned that the player could recruit a homie during the derby. It probably didn't work very well, so they took it out. --452 22:22, June 11, 2012 (UTC)
I have still been unable to find any reference to this image in the game files: icons like these are defined in bitmap_sheets.xtbl and this is defined as "ui_hud_recruit_misc_derby", but this identifier is not used by any other file, and is therefore not used in the game. -452 02:37, November 9, 2015 (UTC)

Easy upgradesEdit

I'll test Easy Upgrades on PC soon, hopefully it's the same default controls. -452 23:35, September 1, 2012 (UTC)

Tested. It's Crouch + Sprint on both, kinda. On PC, it's definitely Crouch+Sprint, which by default is LShift+C, but can be changed to anything and the new assignment works. On Xbox, it is always L3+RB, which in configuration A, is Crouch+Sprint, but in B and C, RB isn't Sprint, but RB still must be held. -452 19:37, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Exiting vehicleEdit

re: "In Saints Row, it is sometimes possible to leave the vehicle when it is on fire, however, it is impossible to use weapons or enter any other vehicles and the activity still ends when the car explodes."

I have personally witnessed this. -452 22:57, September 16, 2012 (UTC)
