For System 7.0 - 7.6 - Mac OS 9
Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver,

Summary:

Carmageddon is a graphically violent vehicular combat 1997 PC video game. It was later ported to other platforms (including this Mac OS release), and spawned a series of follow-up titles. It was inspired by the 1975 cult classic movie "Death Race 2000". The game was produced by Stainless Games, published by Interplay and SCi.
In early 2012, it was announced that a new port of the game will be released for iOS and certain Android mobile devices.

In Carmageddon, the player races a vehicle against a number of other computer controlled competitors in various settings, including city, mine and industrial areas. The player has a certain amount of time to complete each race, but more time may be gained by collecting bonuses, damaging the competitors' cars, or by running over pedestrians. Races are completed by either completing the course as one would a normal racing game, "wasting" (wrecking) all other race cars, or killing all pedestrians on the level.
The game featured instrumental versions of songs from Fear Factory's album Demanufacture, with the song Zero Signal being used in the game's intro. The other songs from the album that appear are Demanufacture and Body Hammer. This video game is a must-have in the collection of Mac OS videogames.

Watch out, this game doesn't like fast computers. The physics engine goes completely bonkers on high-end G3s/G4s.

Is it OK to upload that grenier_du_mac .TOAST image for now? I've been thinking about doing so.

Is the Carmageddon from the other site "grenier_du_mac" good enough (full copy)?

Hi Euryale. No its not the "real deal". OK, it is the full game installer but the extra CD audio tracks are missing. I've just tested burning this to confirm.

It needs to be bin/cue and not .toast/.iso

If you have the time to image this CD correctly. Please do.

[Edit] Bumping... bumping...

-----The original CD has several tracks------

Then it would be great if you could make a clone of the CD that captures all the tracks like you did once before a long time ago. I don't care what form you use to do the clone, but whatever it is, I would want to convert it to bin/cue (if it isn't in that form already), copy it to my RS account, and make that available with a link here.

The original CD has several tracks, the first track belongs to the game, from the 2nd track and on belong to each soundtrack, so total are 8 tracks or so, CD players actually recognize the CD with no error and tries to play from the first track, but then you skip to the 2nd track and the music comes alive. I vaguely remember the box mention that the cd could be played like a regular music CD, but did not mention that the music starts from the 2nd track, so the first time I put it in my CD player I thought that there was something wrong cuz the 1st track kept "playing" with a countdown timer but there was no audio so I was so stupid I didn´t press the skip button to the 2nd track until I eventually tried, that´s how I found out about the tracks.

by mrdav - 2013, June 3 - 10:36pm

@Euryale

The copy on the French website is a Toast image and so cannot contain the audio tracks (I am assuming the music is on a separate Audio partition, but if there is only one (data) track on the CD and the music is in a folder with the game, then the existing Toast image would be OK, I expect). If the CD has separate game and audio partitions then it would be great if you would make another clone of the CD. Does your original CD have more than one track?

Just wanna ask,
Is the Carmageddon from the other site "grenier_du_mac" good enough (full copy)?
(meaning you guys don´t need another copy cuz this is also a good copy)

...or should I make another clon-copy off my original CD (screenshot)?

by BreakinBenny - 2013, June 3 - 11:55am

@mrdav
Oh, no sorry. I don't have the Mac port, but I know WarriorRazor on YouTube does!
http://youtu.be/nyWuNbtA8ME?t=11m45s

All that's here is the demo available on Road Reaction (I asked Toshiba-3, and he agreed)

by SwedeBear - 2013, May 4 - 8:33pm

What if it is a ShrinkWrap image? Can't remember exactly but they were capable of 1-1 copies IIRC? Though could not be handle outside Alladin's products…

by mrdav - 2013, May 4 - 9:13am

I don't think an img file is capable of capturing the audio track. Certainly an iso file or standard Toast file cannot. A bin-cue pair will do this (and Toast can burn these) and I think there are other formats from the Win side that will include the audio track as well as the game track.

by macjames - 2013, May 4 - 8:15am

Humm... found in my tapes a .sit with a .img inside, of carmageddon. does anyone know the size of the CD? i have no idea if mine has the music or not, but judging by the file size i guess not.

Nevermind. just found it.

Thanks to advances in Wineskin and DosBox (including full 3dfx support), there is a version of Carmageddon 1 & 2 (as well as Rollcage 1 & 2) for Mac OS X 10.5->10.8 on the Porting Team website.

Mac OS 10.4 support is not ensured, but possible with some older builds/titles...

by mrdav - 2013, May 2 - 12:12pm

@BreakinBenny

With reference to your revision comment "I'm thinking about mixing the FULL CD & Carmageddon 1 pages together"...

If you have an original CD, can you please copy it in a form that captures both the game and audio tracks. A bin/cue pair will do this for example. We lost the copy of the full CD when MegaUpload died.

by mrdav - 2013, January 3 - 10:33am

grenier-du-mac have this. I have given the link above.

Once again,
someone VANDALIZED my original post (file-links)
which had ALL the Music and everything and post this crappy incomplete file,

I really hate users who do that (Vandalizing other people`s posts)

by SHiNShU - 2010, July 12 - 7:16pm

where is the link to download? geeez, i wouldve thought somebody wouldve asked this already.

Euryale's picture
by Euryale - 2010, May 12 - 12:00am

Yes, it includes the Fear factory soundtracks, and EVERYTHING..
this is a CLONE of my original CD
once again, I made copies off this file, and fully test them,
it even plays the soundtracks on a regular CD player
(Game is track 1, songs start from track 2, etc..)

but I believe my original post was vandalized,
therefore I can´t guarantee the functionality of the newer post.

by SHiNShU - 2010, May 11 - 4:49am

ok, before i download this, i need to know: does this include the game's music, intro movie and everything like the whole cd should? because if not, im gonna need a different download. i already tried the other 1 posted by euryale and guess what: stuffit wont work because its split up into parts and no, stuffit doesnt understand that the parts go together. found an app called macrar that works in os 9 and it wont open the crap because again, its split up into parts instead of as 1 rar file. the only thing i know of that uses "parts" is winrar which i cant use because its for flippin windows!

Thanks!.

Ok I got it to work! To play the 3rd map you must, copy the .toast image to the Macintosh HD. Mount it with toast. From the installer select "easy install". The game will also run/load allot faster too if you copy the image instead of burning straight to a CD, with less crashes! Wink

Euryale --> i was just trying to play the game directly from cd. I also installed the 'carmageddon' file to hard disk but nothing. Now i installed the file 'document' on hard disk and it plays Smile.
j_damage•69 --> Yesterday i played the game but only the first map. When i find time i will see if i have the same problem at 'fridge racer'

Game unexpectedly quits for me when trying to load the 3rd map "Fridge Racer". Anyone else had this problem?

Ta.

@ DImitris and everyone

I'm glad it works and the time you spent downloading the whole thing was not in vain,
but I'd like to know why you couldn't make it work the first time.

I also uploaded the other Image made with NERO,

http://macintoshgarden.org/games/carmageddon-1-full-cd

This file was fixed Thanks to Balrog but I think the music tracks are not included
cuz I didn't know how to Clone the whole CD.

Hmmm has anything been changed with this? From the last message I suspect not.

Dimitris1980's picture
by Dimitris1980 - 2009, August 18 - 10:15am

I have an imac g3 with mac os 9.1 and i haven't managed yet to play the game. When i choose new game at menu i see a message 'please insert carmageddon CD'. I have tried both ways. 1)Burning the cd and 2) unmounting the toast file but nothing.

bertyboy's picture
by bertyboy - 2009, August 15 - 7:59am

Nah,

With a copy of Toast 5 or later, a Toast image of the game part of the CD, and (ideally a Toast image of) the music tracks, we can re-combine these into a single CD on our Macs.

So do your stuff, I'll download and refine the instructions and post them here. Similar solutions were required for all other games that combined Audio and Data tracks on a CD, ie. Age of Empires.

by j_69• (not verified) - 2009, August 15 - 6:02am

Sounds alright, yeah. Although the files still sound terribly big, I think it will be worth it in the end.

You see the Carmageddon 2 image file was already good to go for me, soo all I had to do was stuffit in a .img.sit format. But I think the soundtracks from the Carmageddon 2 img file that I uploaded has had the music ripped from it, (if there ever was any on the original media).

Hmmm sounds like you're juggling between windows and mac burning and imaging programs. But im sure you have great ideas with getting round to uploading files in your own way.

Yes I have the same issue with music tracks for some of my games. For example quake 2: When I pop the CD in it comes up with 2 CD icons.

One of them is music tracks for itunes, music players ect.. Including that track 1 file, which probably holds all the information for the music tracks. Then we have the original CD itself, with all the game DATA installer ect... There must be some way of combining the 2 CDs together so you can make it one image file or whatever. Toast does that for you but it makes the 2 CD twice as big as they're and will mount separate images (one for audio tracks and the other for the actual game.

Cheers,
j_damage.

That's exactly what I've trying to do all along (CLoning) and that's the easiest choice
but when I choose the CLone format it has to be in .Bin cue or .img (alcohol)
ok, now the output of these file formats for some unknown reason don't keep the original size
at 297Mb, instead the output size is a massive 723Mb!

this CD is really weird and maybe because it has the 7 Music tracks that can even be played in a regular Stereo from the track 2

track 1 is the game, track 2,3,4,5,6,7 are the Fear factory Songs

other, when I choose the .ISO Standard, both Alcohol and Ultra ISO tell me that it'll be recorded as 1 track and that some information will be lost

So I've made my mind and...

-Iam going to make a .bin or .img file so it'll produce an Exact copy (even if it's 723Mb)
-I am going to Compress that file with .RAR and split it
- upload the files to my Mediafire account
- and then everybody will have a plain Clone without the hassle of mounting and insert Cd issues
of the disk images, just burn it and that's it..

j_damage•69's picture
by j_damage•69 - 2009, August 15 - 3:49am

Ok, I think you should clone the original CD and keep it at the original size or (297MB). Its good because not only is it under the upload limit, it sounds like the quickest and most effective way as well. Other downloaders won't get confused either. Smile

I get the same messages with some CD's, some games maybe small but toast detects them as full blown 600MB CD images. I dont know how to make it so that you can select the size of the actual game itself... : /

Thanks for the reply.

Euryale's picture
by Euryale - 2009, August 15 - 1:48am

No, because I have doubts as to what type of file you guys either want it, or is it better.
Ok, the thing is..

When I make a regular ISO file using either Alcohol 120% or Ultra ISO,(in Windows)
for some reason the size of the ISO file goes up to almost 700Mb

(this is weird because when I did exactly the same thing with Duke Nukem for PPC, the .ISO file kept its size making it possible to upload and make it work)

the good thing about this format is that You just burn it onto a CD and Bam!
you get a CLONE of the original Game CD weighing only 297Mb

If you want this file, I'll do it

---

or when I use TOAST (inside the Basilisk)
the file keeps at 297Mb which is good for transfering but some users find it difficult to mount it because it goes inside a .dsk volume container..

So, what should I do?

j_damage•69's picture
by j_damage•69 - 2009, August 15 - 1:33am

Has this been re-uploaded yet?

Thanks.

Euryale's picture
by Euryale - 2009, August 12 - 8:45am

No I didn't do anything wrong , the first file was an. ISO Toast file inside a virtual hard drive (.dsk)
which just was added to the drive list, start the emulator and mount the Game image inside,
there was no need for Unstuffing, and they compress alot without corruption
very easy fast and effective, as I said, I tested it..

but then Balrog changed it cuz for some people this file(.dsk) was confusing
when in fact these files are just portable Hard disks (All my back ups are in this format)
and instead of initialazing a new Data HFS container, I just do Copy and Paste.

anyway I will upload a new Plain .ISO file

j_damage•69's picture
by j_damage•69 - 2009, August 12 - 8:00am

Ok, thanks allot for confirming. Yeah its strange, hopefully there's some kind of CD crack or you did something wrong when burning.

Euryale's picture
by Euryale - 2009, August 12 - 7:51am

No, it is not damaged, I tested it myself
and I tested it both ways, one is Burning it onto a regular CD (and it worked)
and Mounting the Image with Toast and play it from there (it worked too)

-----------

I just downloaded it, and I'm gonna test it again...

___________________________

I guess you 're right, I don't know what happened to the original file I uploaded
this is different, and it doesn't work for me either

hopefully Balrog tells us how to make this one work, 'cuz he changed the original format.

j_damage•69's picture
by j_damage•69 - 2009, August 12 - 5:37am

hmm anyone else getting the "please insert carmageddon CD". I think the .toast image is also damaged.

Euryale's picture
by Euryale - 2009, August 4 - 8:05pm

Thank you Balrog, but late last night (after I uploaded Carmageddon) I found out what the problem was..
- good thing I was doing things right from the beginning -

the problem is the little TRANSFER utility (with same name) it came with the SoftMac emulator,
when I transfer from the Internet/WinWorld, works fine, but when I transfer ANY file
from the Macworld onto the WinWorld/Internet, the files got corrupted an unusable...

so I now Use other Transfer utility called GEMXPLORER which I just Drag from Mac, and Drop to Windows (faster) and I tested it many times with several files (back and forth) and it worked fine!..

Nonetheless, I am going to change to the Basilisk Emulator 'cuz I don't get any Sound with SoftMac anyway, and if I have trouble with That, expect my e-Mail crying for help..Smile

As it is a. cdr.zip (or a .toast.zip) image, just unzip it in Mac OS X Finder and open your SheepShaver Preferences to add this item to the emulator's drives list.

If one is on Windows, may just rename .toast to .cdr to do so.

edit: "If one is on Windows, may just rename .toast to .zip to do so."
must be "If one is on Windows, may just rename .toast to .cdr to do so."
