This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.

Another failed attempt to create a good rally game.

Build Dates

Present only in the GameCube versions.

Europe (Rev 0) Europe (Rev 1)/US
Dec 17 2001
Jun 5 2002
  • While no build date is mentioned in the PS2 version, its RALLY.ELF is timestamped "Feb 19 2002 07:04:28".
  • Also, Europe (Rev 0) couldn't be compiled in December of 2001, because it's hidden music tracks were released only in 2002. So probably original European GameCube release doesn't contain real build date, and this time reffered to build date of some game component.

Dummy File

The PS2 version contains a dummy file called DUMFILE, located in DATA/OTHERS. While it is over 117 MB in size, it consists only of zeroes.


Duplicate Tracks

To do:
Investigate bnm files, when tools for them will appear, because PS2 version can have another tracks duplicated.
  • The PS2 version has duplicates of BGM5.BNM and BGM6.BNM (located in DATA/SOUND/MUSIC) named BGM9.BNM and BGM10.BNM.
  • The GameCube versions have duplicates of bgm1.adp and bgm4.adp (located in audio/tracks) named bgm9.adp and bgm10.adp.

Hidden Tracks Easter Egg

The GameCube versions have the additional tracks bgm11.adp and bgm12.adp, which are absent from the PS2 version.

  • bgm11 contains two songs from Spanish pop duo Cassino: an extended version of Consecuencias, and Mi Mente Se Colapsa.
  • bgm12 is an unknown track.

Entering Cassino as your driver's name will cause the game to use only these two files: bgm12 for menus, bgm11 for races.

Platform Differences


  • The PS2 version has name Pro Rally 2002, when GameCube versions dropped 2002 from its name. Despite this, in the GameCube year still mentioned.
