Carmageddon Countdown now offers a countdown timer that looks like it will reach zero on June 1, suggesting an announcement is coming just in advance of this year's E3. The original Carmageddon was a 1997 DOS release, and the most recent installment was Carmageddon: Total Destruction Racing 2000 more than a decade ago. Thanks Computer and Video Games.

I completely agree, my question to you is where did you find both C1 & C2 to buy and how did you run them? Still have a comp using win95/98? I would love to play Carmageddon again. and

C2 runs great in compatibility mode as it is more current and engine more up to date.

C1 requires DosBox and has definite frame rate issues in -hires or high yon(.ini draw distance) settings. 3dfx emulation works and allows high resolutions but again at higher gfx settings has frame rate issues. Something in how DosBox works or how the old game engine works doesn't allow our super fast computers of today to make it fly; the game is throttled some how.

According to , currently C1 pretty much still requires actual original hardware to run at decent frame rates if you want extra high settings.

Yea, I have run into the same issues trying to reinstall and play both of them. I really wish someone would get ahold of them and make them compatible....
