Hey there! I’ve just released a new version of a Dreamcast Restoration 2.0 mod for Crazy Taxi. The changelog is as follows:
- Restored previously cut passenger voices referring to licensed destinations. While I initially thought they were removed from the files, turns out I was wrong and they were locked off, just like everything else around these licenses.
- Fixed Z-fighting on re-enabled FILA and Pizza Hut logos. This means they will not flicker anymore.
This release in action – Alexvgz published a teaser for restored voices a while ago. Now, with Z-fighting fixed, we’re finally making this release official:

It only took 3 different crazy taxi port assembly just to find the code that was keeping them mute. pic.twitter.com/94Ji5tFmzO
Additionally, just yesterday Rinnegatamante published an update for his Crazy Taxi Vita that integrates Dreamcast Restoration 2.0! In fact, his findings made this update possible, as I was finally able to fix the Z-fighting =)
Crazy Taxi Vita can be downloaded from VitaDB and requires a (free) copy of Crazy Taxi for Android.
The modification can be downloaded in Mods & Patches. Click here to head to the game’s page directly:
