Difficult question. Most mods are just addon cars so you can download & install whatever you want to see ingame?

Try and give Max Damage some hours, it's actually a pretty fun chaos/sandbox game like C1 and C2 were. Runs better than Reincarnation too.

Splat Pack had some highlights, like the Castle or Mayan Hotel. Also some cool vehicles, Stiletto, The Sled, Rig O'Mortis... but yeah didn't bring much more than that on the table.

Still kinda wish they'd release another C1 or C2 expansion pack, just like No Rest For The Living for Doom 2 or the new AOE2 expansions.

Thoughts on using 3dfx for carmageddon?

>> No.3861405
File: 283 KB, 1920x1080, DUMP0001 (3).png [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google]

IMO much like many early 3dfx games, it doesn't look too good. The game loses its gritty aspect, textures seem kinda washed out. Texture seams appear a bit everywhere. And finally, the higher resolutions brought by the glide wrappers don't suit the actual game geometry which isn't dense enough ; I mean, it looks empty.

Anyway I still understand people prefer to play with that mode. It can give better performances too in Dosbox. GOG's version works quite well with nGlide, lowering the gamma to 0.8 or so might be nice though.

There's also an unfinished "hires" patch for the software mode (pic related).

All Carmageddon games are supposed to be ""difficult to handle"". Though yeah once you get the hang of it, it's quite rewarding I guess, especially when you plow through a pack of peds while drifting etc.

3D peds were cool at the time but look too outdated now, almost out of place. They really are very lowpoly, not even close to something like HL1 original characters. There's a mod that replaces the C2 ped models with models from GTA3 (but keeps the C2 textures).

Still can't beat punching C1 peds into giblets though.

Not really sadly. Even if the host has a very fast connection, it will go out of sync for good after a couple of rounds. You can try though, just google wsock32.dll, there's one specifically for C1/C2. GOG have their own setup too, I idn't test it.

We did manage to get it working and stable for a couple of rounds years ago via Hamachi, then via a dedicated server. (pic related)

The problem with Reincarnation was the performance, even on high end computers (also CTDs and whatnot). It's been fixed for the Max Damage rerelease.

To most people, it's what Reincarnation should have been. New content aside, the performance is much more stable and glitches are quite rare. (but it can't be a true carma without glitches at all!)

Racing is completely optional in Carmageddon. Usualy you win the race by wrecking your opponents, you gain time by maiming pedestrians. There's no car-mounted weapons like in Interestate 76, but starting with C2 some powerups like 'Slaughter Mortar' and 'Opponent Repulsificator' are pretty much weapons (very few "ammo" though).

In the /vr/ Carmageddon games, the AI can never win by racing, even if they follow the track and go through checkpoints. Besides some mandatory missions in 2 and 3, you never have to race if you don't want to, so most of the events can be finished by using your vehicle as the weapon to waste the opponents.

You can test right away.
Grab the Meld Pack for C1: http://rr2000.toshiba-3.com/R4/PC/meldpack_v1.3.4.zip
It's Carma95 and not the DOS version within DOSBox. It can be run in fullscreen by editing ddraw.ini.

For C2, grab the Vanilla C2 mini-pack: http://rr2000.toshiba-3.com/R4/PC/vanillac2_r1b.zip
You just have to install nGlide (glide wrapper) and run CARMA2_HW.exe.

2-3 modders at the moment. Can't say if multiplayer's doing well. Seems like there's more people active for C1 (turning 20 this year) and C2 than for CMD. Maybe it will become more active once proper modding support is provided (which might be never I guess).
One of these modders is making a lot of stuff alone so it's already that.

IIRC nobby (one of the devs) made sure every level could be completed by killing all peds. I might be mistaken though, and that sentence could apply to Carma iOS and not CMD.

Completely right, and the move is understandable seeing how many negative reviews C:R got. They tried to give their game a second chance.

>> No.3867606

Okay, fine by me. I was dreaming of Reincarnation being patched for additions and fixes, so looks like that happened and they added new cars, environments and more, and gave it for free to people who had Reincarnation so I can't complain.

Also I see that Reincarnation isn't for sale anymore and it's Max Damage only, so we did get the update

Now though I just feel bad for putting so many hours in Reincarnation since MD is the real version.

By the way, the list mentions "three new environments" but that's rather one new and 2 arenas.
