Carmageddon 2 - Default Starter Car

Post by madmatt667 »

Howdy Carma fans!

I recently downloaded an Ultimate Car Pack for Carma 2 with a whopping 1000 cars included for my Steam version of Carma 2. Problem is that there has been some changes, menu's, loading screens etc - these are all fine. BUT the main problems are that

1. My default car on a New Game is a crappy little thing that breaks so easily

2. The HUD is minimal (small text top left for speed, tiny mini-map bottom right, Timer top right)

The HUD I tried changing in game via the keys that are mapped in the Controls screen, doesn't work. Tried looking through the Options.txt for solutions to both of the above, still not remedied it.

Any help correcting these little problems would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Use Carstockalypse (google it if it's not included in the pack) to change the first car in the list?

And try pressing F1 to switch between HUDs, maybe it's just that?

The legendary Toshiba-3!

Hey thanks so much, that worked out great, both the HUD and my start car are now fixed!

Now to get cracking on this tough mod for Carma 2, really brutal.

Thanks Toshiba-3!

When changing the starting car with carstockalypse, all car icons below in the hud screen (where you see the opponents) are messed up.. i think there is a file in carma 2 which holds the default car icon according to it's name.. .

e.g. i have the purple buggy to play as starting car, and max the eagle is now 2nd of the list, but in game it has now the buggy's icon.. below in the hud

Wow something I DIDNT have in my collection :P

Now I have them in less than 500 places around my PC.

Every time I hear of a car in C2 It reminds me of way back when, when they first released the "Oscar Mayer" car. I was so happy to see modding for my favorite Carmageddon game ! Still edit the heck out of it :P

Thanks for pointing that out !

this is what you could get if you change starter cars.. or all cars positions with carstockalypse

level bruise brothers from group 10.. normally police cars, 12 of them.

i managed it to set it as first level at group 1, race 0.. and the original nice beaver race 0 as level 37 (group 10)
