Post by shane »

Carmageddon:Reincarnation backers may remember that during our campaign we announced the original version of Carmageddon was going to be re-released on GOG in its un-altered original format, complete with the additional Splat pack and all its innards packaged up in an easy to install executable. Well, that time has now come, and we are thrilled to say it’s now available at $9.99!

Great job. This is still with Dosbox isn't it? I get really low FPS on Carmageddon1, especially when I try to run 3DFX mode. I read in some comments on GOG that some people still experience this problem.

@Bartjaah: Dosbox has quite some high sys req. You might want to try the Exp Windows Patch:

Well, thanks for the patch. I guess it's useless to me. I backed for $20, so I didn't receive a GOG Carma downloadcode. Though I own the installation CD's of CARMA & SPLATTER PACK. But the GOG patch is useless if you haven't got the GOG edition of Carma. The installer package tells me that it can't find Carmageddon installed. Is there a extracted version of the installer so I can place it in my original Carma folder perhaps?

I don't see why I should buy the game again from GOG when I still have the original CD's here.

@Bartjaah: Indeed.

The content of the patch is just Carma95+hifi's wrappers.

Carma95 should be present on at least one of your CDs.

The wrappers are: ddraw.dll for the rendering (you should configure it via ddraw.ini once installed), winmm.dll for the music, wsock32.dll for the network games. There are also patches to run Carma95 directly in hires, humans.

ddraw.dll here
rest here

Don't hesitate to search this place for more info.

Thank you for all the help, I got everything from you guys, and my CARMA95 patch from the CD. After it patched the Carma95.exe it still gives me an error (when i fire up carma95) that I miss the "Libvorbisfile-3.dll" and normally I google my DLL's but can't seem to find this one.

Though, thanks again all of you for helping me.

Finished Carma entirely (for Max & Die Anna) on Hard & Splat Pack for Max; on with Die Anna. :) Crowbar's All I Had I Gave plays all time in my ears while i play SP: why you didn't include the band's album as SP's soundtrack? Going 'gainst anyone/anything while this song plays feels entirely Carma. lol Overkill's Elimination is fuckin' ACE too. :)

Thanx alot for this classic, goes to Stainless's, KS & GOG's staff. Keep headbanging. \m/

I hate to dig up the age old problem of low FPS on GOG C1 and SP, but having read through forums etc, I have tried most things, but I doubt the W95 patch will work on a Mac running C1/SP through DOSBox, if anyone can confirm or deny this it would be great. If not, I guess I'll guinea pig.

Thank you lemonrev. I will have a good look through that. I managed to load dosboxCARSPLAT3dfx.conf into dosbox and changed the settings set out in gog.com's forums regarding this problem but the low framerate still exists. I'll have a fiddle with variables and see what sticks.

Update: I have been fiddling around, and so far have not got any closer to running it smoothly. I downloaded Boxer, which creates a mac wrapper for the game, copied the 3dfx conf file into the app. I have heard that nglide might help, but this is only for windows, anyone know of a Mac alternative?

This being an iMac, it's all onboard. Specs say : ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT 128 MB

I wouldn't have the first clue how to upgrade it either. It may not even run C:R.

Jimothey, can you try these?

It says OSX Lion but who knows, might work on earlier versions too.

That is very interesting Tosh. Thank you. I am downloading them right now.

EDIT: I am running Lion, and this doesn't seem to be working. I will have a look through the conf file to see if I can change anything that will make it work.

EDIT 2: I have changed the resolution as described in the readme.txt and changed fullscreen and fulldouble to 'false'. This may have worked on a previous version on Lion, but not now :( I'm running 10.7.5 . I am interested to hear from any other Mac fans out there who have got the games working.

Damn :/ Really weird that you can't get it working on your comp.

What about a ciderized Carma95? Or you absolutely want a 3DFX C1?

It would just be nice to play it without the absurd framerate. I managed to find a copy of SP on an abandonwarez site and I ran that through DOSBox, but it was still a bad framerate even on non3dfx, I have tried to run the non3dfx vers on the GOG version but it says 'please insert Splat Pack CD'

You'd need to make use of the cnc-ddraw module, otherwise it's impossible
