Well, well, well....

As I was cleaning out some old disks, I stumbled upon an old CD with some ancient code bits on them.  And guess what was inside?



So, I present to you, the "Holy Grail" of the never released demos due to stupid decisions.  Caveat, it only works on Windows systems, but perhaps you folks could get it to run on other OS's.  I should add that I just opened up the directory on a Windows 7 machine, ran the D3D bat file and the thing just worked.  Good job Shawn!

Also, remember that this was done back in 2001....almost a decade ago.  I shudder to think of what might have been if we were allowed to do anything with this on consoles back then...Sad

Instructions:

- Unzip wherever you like
- Go to ../F1/GCProjects/Formula1_0
- Run either 'F1_D3D.bat' or 'F1_OGL.bat'

Let us know if it works on your machines.

Cool stuff. The demo ran fine here on my laptop, though with some timing issues, everything was very fast.

I see its running on Java 1.3 Smiley

Ahaha, the dodgy collision is hilariously bad. Shocked

And the C++ code is obviously written by a Java-only programmer. Dynamically allocating the Point objects for a bounding box? LOL. Talk about a performance sink.

Haha we live and learn Smiley It's taken years for Java to get to a state where it could be used for AAA titles and then ... well, Chris's overlords kinda buggered it anyway. Can't believe they scuppered iOS Java too. Sigh.

Sure, but this was not production code, just a demo.

Also, press 'C' to change camera angels.
