Rush the Rock-Alcatraz Edition

[/update] Smiley

So for those who do not know, this game requires a Quantum3D Raven to play. (so it says when you try loading it with a non Raven card)

...

My quesiton then is there a way to trick my computer into thinking I have a Q3D Raven installed when really it might be a Voodoo 2/3/4/5 card or something like that? (modifying the driver file(s) possibly?)

If anyone would like to help me take on this project please let me know and we can work some magic. Smiley

Does anyone know if the Raven has a standard banshee board design? Huh

If so then all @Rotten needs is a Raven BIOS image - flash his Voodoo Banshee... Wink

Viola - instant Raven. Cool

I'll have to look, I'm fairly sure I got it working somehow but can't recall the details.

Chances are it would still work fine, if not you could always flash it back.

Aside from the glasses connection just a standard SDRAM Banshee

Ok, thanks for all the input guys. Now.. does anyone have a Raven BIOS? Or maybe even a Raven card for sale?Or a solution to my little situation?

Or possibly could someone provid the VendorID and DeviceID for a Q3D Raven so I can try and use 3D-Analyze [http://www.3dfxzone.it/files?object=3dfx&objid=100]

Thanks again in advance for any help.

Also, it appears that a fellow named Xenon-X had a patched .exe for the game... does anyone know if that person is still around or able to contact?

UPDATE!: I just bought 2 AGP Q3D Raven's for $10 each.. Not too bad.. Smiley

Update:
I am part of a very underground forum.. (the kind you can only get into if you know certain people) and I found myself a guy who knew what he was doing. He worked some magic on the several .exe's from the Rush game. [Rush640.exe, Rush800.exe, Rush1024.exe, Rush1280.exe] I am now playing the game on a Voodoo4 4500 AGP without the lame hardware check. I will be playing this on my V6k when I find some time. Smiley

...

Now that I know how he did it... it really wasn't that hard.  I just opened the exe in a disassembler, looked for places where the game calls the windows function that makes a message box, which led me to the part that does the graphics card check, and then just changed the code so that it skips that.  Very Nice!

bloody crackers Smiley

wish I had the skill-I got a few old games here that need to be fixed in a similar way in order to play on new machines properly,and it seems like the magic just won't happen unless I do it myself..oh well,you know the old saying,you want something done right.. Grin


edit: maybe you should make the files available,you know,for archivation purposes.

There is another option for playing Rush the Rock....

Midway Arcade Treasures 3 for Playstation2 has several arcade games
that used 3Dfx chips on Obsidian boards.

San Francisco Rush -- The Rock: Alcatraz Edition
(Atari FLAGSTAFF hardware: Voodoo1 -based but with 2 TMUs (2 TexelFX
chips) - Obsidian 2440 ?

San Francisco Rush 2049,
(Atari DENVER hardware: Voodoo 3 based ?) Obsidian

Hydro Thunder
(Atari QUICKSILVER II hardware: (Voodoo3 based ?) Obsidian

Yeah, I saw that but wanted to run it in Glide... I'm pretty sure you cannot do that with the Treasures... either way I decided to buy it as it was pretty cheap ($9.95 shipped)  I will let you all know how that goes... Smiley

What's the word Rotten?  Have you had a chance to play the Treasures games?

Also, does anyone have the CD ISO for these games?  I won a Raven PCI and would like to try these games out.

@razerx - careful matey, takling about ISOs is a no-no... Roll Eyes

However, I DO believe that the modded .EXE files should be uploaded to the 3Dfx archive - it would be most useful! Wink

Hey Paul!

I thought I was ok asking for game ISOs, since the games I was asking for originally came with the Raven Banshee video card. Thanks for the tip.

I agree with you when it comes to the modded game files. That would be nice to have, but I thought that the modded files be more risky to ask for than the original games.

If anyone is looking for the Raven PCI BIOS, I can provide a copy.  Raven BIOS 1.03.00-QA

Once I had a program, using which you can force any device ID of graphic card to another program. My cousin used it to obtain free HL2 Deathmatch (it was free for ATi cards, and he has integrated Intel crap Smiley ). I'm sure this would work with this game, combined with a glide wrapper.
