Happy 20th Anniversary, Nitro Pack!

Post by Lightfoot » Mon Feb 26, 2018 6:02 pm

February 28, 2018 marks the 20th Anniversary of Nitro Pack!

Due to this auspicious occasion I've taken it upon myself to reach deep into my back of tricks and throw you the last two bones I could find:

For those of you who want to get into the game: The Quick and Dirty "Get Started" Guide

For those of you already in the game: Nitro Patch IV

Don't forget, we've got our own ANET2 server: PLAY.INTERSTATE76.COM *AND* our own TeamSpeak server: BARK.INTERSTATE76.COM

See you on the roads...or not!

:shock:

i remember The Wraith, his avatar was a picture of himself that looked like the driver of the station wagon in carmageddon :P

i played some interstate 82 multiplayer around 5 years ago but i76 i haven't tried in much longer. wasn't there an issue with some weapons being broken in the gog release? i might try your guide though… i think you made a typo on that PLAY.INTERTATE76.COM server name (it's fixed now).

and i'm sure everyone would be fine with a mass email from this forum every few years!

Don't forget about some of the other resources we've got here for you!

AUTO-VIGILANTE.COM - The new home of The AVA, Ladders and PHP Car Designer
Z.INTERSTATE76.COM - Suicyco's Speed Shop: Rebuilt, repaired and ready to roll

There are also (2) other ANET servers up and running:

BATTLEZONE1.COM - Complete with server status page
BZ911.NET - A great place for no one to ever find you

Drive around. Let me know what you think about what I've done to the place.

So nice!
Would one day like to play online, currently play it now and then on my Windows 98 system and find it fun to burn some rubber and impregnate some cpu players with a 50cal.

I'll never forget the day I got home from school to find that little UPS package containing The Interstate '76 Arsenal waiting on my front porch. Had just upgraded to 40mb of RAM and a Voodoo Rush 3D card. Felt like it took ages to install on my 4x CD-ROM drive. Boy did the game look purdy. And still does, imo.

Can't believe it's already been 20 years. About time for a remake, no?

I forgot to mention in the original or follow up post that I've been working on *ANOTHER* "pet project" to add to the nostalgia around here.

At the bottom of this page http://interstate76.com/community/community.htm there's the links to the original Activision sites for the games. I've been slowly cobbling them together from old drives and abandoned websites so they're not quite finished and not quite complete...

However, I'd like to think probably have more of than Activision does at this jucture.

:wink:

Enjoy driving down memory lane! Remember, there is *NO* speed limit on imaginary roads!

Ah, the old lackofvision sites, that's cool, thanks.

I tried a few weeks ago searching for any of it on their own site, it ain't there at all. Totally gone...
