Carmageddon Reincarnation Boot Camp

We’ve been patient, but as a 2012 Carmageddon: Reincarnation kickstarter backer, you don’t want to wait forever. After twenty-one months you run out of patience. You want to play the game! Even if it’s only in pre-alpha stage and totally un-uptimised. Even if you have to install Windows 8.1 on your MacBook Pro (blasphemy!) to find out you’ll only get around 3 frames per second.

I found the solution though. In the Carmageddon folder, change the config.lua to this:

config = 
{
 graphics = 
 {
 start_in_fullscreen = true, 
 auto_size = false, 
 virtual_texturing = true, 
 hzb_culling = false, 
 dynamic_cube_mapping = false, 
 dynamic_cube_mapping_options = 
 {
 quality = 1, 
 resolution = 0
 }, 
 resolution = 
 {
 fullscreen = 
 {
 width = 1280, 
 height = 720
 }, 
 windowed = 
 {
 width = 1280, 
 height = 720
 }
 }, 
 refresh_rate = 
 {
 numerator = 60317, 
 denominator = 1000
 }, 
 vsync = false, 
 ambient_occlusion = false, 
 view_distance = 3, 
 anti_aliasing = 
 {
 enabled = false
 }, 
 post_processing = 
 {
 motion_blur = 
 {
 enabled = false
 }, 
 quality = 1
 }, 
 shadows = 
 {
 resolution = 1, 
 translucent_shadows = 
 {
 enabled = false
 }
 }, 
 texturing = 
 {
 quality = 1
 }, 
 particles = 
 {
 quality = 1
 }, 
 maxmipskip = 5
 }, 
 carmodgeddon = 
 {
 enabled = false, 
 folder = "carmodgeddon"
 }, 
 localisation = 
 {
 country = "GB", 
 language = "en"
 }
}

Thanks to smeghammer.

As you can see from the code, the resolution is only half of the real potential of the retina MacBook Pro screen, and the laptop gets quite warm, so the fans kick in, but at least it plays good.

Ladies and gentlemen.. this is your one minute warning!   😀
