#1 Submitted: Mon, 14/05/2012 - 19:32

i had to resort to using 'Dosbox' to play carma 1 on my win7pc. ill be damned if i can get it to install the splat pack though.. OR how to get it to run in hi res.

keeps saying i got an invalid carma1 install in selected location (where it is!) when i try puting the splat pack on.

anyone able to get carma2 running though? i stll cant get fussy-ass 7 to run it :(((

For Carma 1 I used D3D windower, search around I cant remember where I found it but it allows you to run Carma 1 and Splat pack in hi res without glide or anything like that, also you can run it in a window if you want. As for carma 2 it's been a while since I played it on my 7 machine, let me try again and get back to you on that.

I'm installing C2 now, oh I forgot to mention that D3D windower app only seems to work on 32 bit windows (which is what i'm running) but there are other threads here I think for an easier way, look around for the C1 meld pack.

Well, don't bother with the original CDs because it's a pain in the ass to install it on modern systems.

Download the complete C1+Splat Pack here Carma1+SplatPack and use hifi's directdraw emulator .dll here DLL.
You will be able to run it on W7 64bits in hire by adding -hires to the carma95.exe . Mine is working flawlessly.

For carma2, it works well too, download the "Carma2 mini-pack" by Toshiba-3 from his DevWAM site here Carma2MiniPack

i have the GOG version of Carma 1 working perfectly on win 7 64 bit. i just play it in hardware mode and it works fine, in native res full screen with no black bars.

i never managed to get the sold out software version of Carma 2 working, only the original 1998 version works for me. however i cant get the music tracks to play while racing or on the menu screens.

What do you mean by "sold out software version of Carma 2 working" ?

Audio CD playback seems disabled within the latest patch.
Maybe winmm.dll could help, never really tried.

... and carmageddon add-ons at road reaction.
