I decided to write this FAQ, and send it in to GameFAQs, because I looked at www.gamefaqs.com and saw that there are only 2! FAQ's for Carmageddon. Both are excellent, but when I checked the bigger one, it was mainly for the beta demo version of the game. Benn Rice's FAQ is EXCELLENT!, but I would still like to see a FAQ for the full game. Anyways, send in your ideas, questions, and all other related stuff to my email at the top. Here is my version and I hope you enjoy... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ************ *2. Options* ************ Here I will list all of the options available from the starting menu and what they mean : 2.1 Sound Here you can adjust the level of Sound Effects and level of Music. You may wanna play with no music, cause it tends to drown out all the sounds of gut wrenching, organ squashing, blood curdling screams, etc etc etc... 2.2 Detail This basically means, you change the settings so that your computer can run the game a bit faster. Or just to make the game look good. Settings towards the left tend to make the game run faster. Car Complexity - This means how blocky the car would be. The lowest setting is very blocky, and the highest is almost perfect. Car Textures - This determines how much detail the car will be displayed in. Shadows - Turns off either all shadows, all but your car or all shadows on. Pretty useless having shadows on, it just slows down the game. Unless you have a very fast PC, unlike me. Wall Textures - The level of detail of walls and buildings. Road Textures - This settings changes how 'realistic' the road looks. Pretty boring set on the lowest. I mean, come on, at least have a sort of realistic look on the road. Scenery Cut-Off - This settings determines, how far behind scenery is 'Cut-Off'. The booklet is wrong cause it says how far in front of you, but that has to do with 'Scenery Pop-Up'. The closer you set it the faster the game will run. I have it on nearest, cause I don't even bother using the mirror. Thats what its for. If you wanna see stuff in the mirror, put this on a further setting. Scenery Pop-up - The exact opposite of 'Scenery Cut-Off'. The closer it is set, the faster the game. Have this set as far away, cause you will have some time to react to that big huge looking wall straight ahead after cruising along the straight at 200mph+. Unless you are cheating... Sky Texture - Turns the sky on or off. I have it off, cause, you can't hit the sky, and it just takes up valuable memory. Darkness / Fog - Makes for a more realistic look to the game. It blocks out Scenery Pop-Up, so you won't notice the buildings just 'popping-up'. But it slows down the game just a little. Who cares? It is worth it. Track Accessories - This turns on or off all of the objects that can be pushed/smashed around ie Street Lights, Traffic Lights etc etc etc... Special Effects - Turns all of the blood stains, skid marks, smoke from when you do a burn-out, on or off. 2.3 Control This options screen allows to you....... CHANGE YOUR CONTROLS! Wow! Anyways, I reckon the default controls setting is the best : DEFAULT CONTROLS Keypad 8 - Accelerate forwards (brake when in reverse). Keypad 2 - Brake when going forwards (accelerate when in reverse). Keypad 4 - Steer left. Keypad 6 - Steer right. Z - Wheelspin. Hold it, Accelerate, and then turn and start doing doughies! Spacebar - Handbrake. C - Switches between 1st and 3rd person view ie Inside and Outside the car. Q - Look left from internal view. W - Look forward from internal view. E - Look right from internal view. Arrow-Keys - Used to turn the external camera around. Press left and right together to get back to the default camera view. H - Horn (use to frighten pedestrians, you can even try creeping up on them before using it). P - Toggle Pratcam, the little view of you, the driver. M - Toggle mirror on and off when in internal view. S - Toggle sound on and off. Tab - Toggles the map. You can still see the car in a little window. Use the arrow keys to move it around. Esc - Go to menu. Backspace - Repair car, press twice quickly for total repair. Ins - Places your vehicle back on its wheels, after you just done that insane jump or had a huge smash. Keypad minus - Toggles all the peds, blood and gibs off. To be used as a panic button when your 3-year brother/sister or 85-year old grandparent walks in. Press again to go back to normal mode. Shift-D - Takes a screenshot. Makes a BMP file in your Carmageddon folder. F1 - Help. F2 - Save. F3 - Load. F9 - Quit. Control-A - Abort race (can also be done from menu). Control-Q - Quit (can also be done from menu). Enter - Toggle between live action and action replay modes. These keys are used in Action Replay Mode : Keypad 5 or Spacebar - Pause/Unpause (plays in ëcurrentí direction). Keypad 0 or Backspace - Flip direction of playing. , or Keypad 1 - Play backwards. . or Keypad 3 - Play forwards. Keypad * - Cycle through different camera modes. Keypad 4 or Page Up - Rewind (hold down). Keypad 6 or Page Down - Fast forward (hold down). Keypad 7 or Home - Go straight back to the start of the tape. Keypad 9 or End - Go straight to the end of the tape. Keypad 1 (When Paused) - Frame advance backwards. Keypad 3 (When Paused) - Frame advance forwards. But as always, no-one probably agrees with me. And if you do, Cool! Thanks for doing so! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ********************** *3. What Car To Pick?* ********************** After you pick your difficulty, you get to choose between the Red Eagle or the Yellow Hawk. Here are some stats for the cars : Red Eagle Yellow Hawk Driver Max Damage Die Anna Speed 6/10 9/10 Strength 9/10 6/10 Handling 8/10 8/10 Weight 1.1 tons 0.8 tons Maximum Speed 200mph 250mph 0-60mph 4.01 seconds 3.15 seconds If you want brute strength, pick the Red Eagle. And if you want to get away from those pesky adversaries, pick the Yellow Hawk. Plus the Yellow Hawk accelerates faster than the Red Eagle. They both handle about the same. I like picking the Red Eagle, cause it looks cooler, I like smashing up alot of stuff, and I just like it. Simple. Plus you enter your name here. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ******************** *4. Starting A Game* ******************** Well, you finally started your game. There are three modes to choose from : As Easy As Killing Bunnies With Axes (Easy) Normal Everyday Carnage (Medium) and Harder Than French Kissing A Cobra (FREAKIN' HARD) I recommend that everyone picks Easy, as it is very easy. It does get harder during the course of the game, but by the time you get there, you be a pro at Carmageddon. If you want a challenge try the Medium mode. Only play Hard if you have played the game before, and you are very experienced with it. Cause you get about 10 seconds per race to find someone to run over, and that is after every player pounds you from every direction. Fun hey? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ******************************* *5. List Of All Cars Available* ******************************* Here I have listed all of the cars (even the ones you get using the cheat code) in order they appear when you pick them.

Action Replay* ****************** Finally, a game with a very excellent replay mode! I love it when you have just done a monstrous jump, are flying through the air, and then you land flat on the ground and squash someone. You hit enter, and watch this very excellent moment over and over again until you feel the urge to start playing again. Very Cool! Anyways, here it is : Keypad 5 or Spacebar - Pause/Unpause (plays in ëcurrentí direction). Keypad 0 or Backspace - Flip direction of playing. , or Keypad 1 - Play backwards. . or Keypad 3 - Play forwards. Keypad * - Cycle through different camera modes. Keypad 4 or Page Up - Rewind (hold down). Keypad 6 or Page Down - Fast forward (hold down). Keypad 7 or Home - Go straight back to the start of the tape. Keypad 9 or End - Go straight to the end of the tape. Keypad 1 (When Paused) - Frame advance backwards. Keypad 3 (When Paused) - Frame advance forwards. Anyways, there are also alot of problems with this. Firstly, the biggest mistake they made (well maybe), was not to include an option for us to SAVE our replays. I mean, I can remember hundreds of times when I wish I had could have saved the replay. All those crashes, smashes and bashes are all wasted. DAMN YOU TO HELL SCi! Just joking!!! Honest... If you send in your funny stories that you can remember, I might consider opening a section of FUNNY STORIES, or something to that extent. I will pick out the best ones and try and put them on the FAQ. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ************* *9. Powerups* ************* Carmageddon has so many powerups, I don't know where to begin! I'll start by listing some of the most common ones : Time Bonus - The most common, those green ones with the recycle sign on it. Well thats what the little sign looks like anyways. Turbo - Gives your car a turbo boosts. Like having a bigger engine. Mega-Turbo - Even better than Turbo. Frozen Opponents - Very Cool! Make sure you get a good run-up and BAM! Drive through them like the wind. Or get them into a corner and repeatedly ram their car! Frozen Cops - Very Useful, just push them off a big drop. Then keep attacking them until they get wasted. Unless they waste you... Acme Damage Magnifier - Like having super strong offensive power. Oh Dear, Jelly Suspension! - Very Cool. Do a jump and bounce around, Very Fun! Pinball Mode - Good and Bad.

I got most of the above cheats from www.gamesages.com And some of the above codes came from the 2nd PC PowerPlay GAME GUIDE. More cheats will come in the next version. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ********** *11. Tips* ********** As I said, here are some tips for playing the game. * Go around, at the start of the race, and run over a number of peds. This will save you doing it later on, and it will give you an advantage when you are trying to kill that last guy in the race. * If you even hear a siren, drive outta there at top speed. Cause the cops keep pounding you, and smashing you and, well you get the point. * You can kill the race starter for 1000 credits, but if you do a lap, he is worth 2000 credits. Provided no-one else has spilt his guts before you will. * Try and push your opponents off high cliffs, and into the ocean. This is very handy in the later stages, when you are up against the big guys. * If you see a jump, try and do a trick off it, and get a Cunning Stunt Bonus. * Like the tip above, try and put a small car behind you, then when the race starts, slam the car in reverse, and smash him right up! If you are lucky, you can waste them this way. Very cool! * Try and scare peds off rooftops. It works! Do it with blind peds and use your horn (Press H.). Another big round of applause to the 2nd PC PowerPlay GAME GUIDE for some of the above tips. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- *************************************** *12.
