Description

back in the old days when we sparred with the community often, and Azrael got dared into speedmodeling a variety of cars. none of them were released, until now. I came across the Banshee mesh when I was hunting for parts for other faction projects and decided it was something deserving of being finished. it had no driver or seats, so I implemented those. I also retooled the texture to make the body color change. I don't know where the performance data came from, but I like how it's very rugged and imperfect. it was a concept car from 1988 after all.

    Wowzee... I had to dig some info. Didn't know it was a Pontiac. "The two-door, four-seater Banshee IV had a sleek and sensuous futuristic design. Its fiberglass body was painted bright red, while its triangular hood was matte black. A 230 horsepower fuel-injected, single overhead cam V8 engine powered the rear wheels. A heads-up display system (HUD) projected information about speed, engine RPM, and fuel level on the windshield in the driver's field of vision. The dashboard featured video displays and numerous buttons; the steering wheel alone contained about twenty. The dual rearwings were also adjustable". Taken from Wikipedia

    A '88 concept by GM, nice. Easy to see the shape came back in later Firebirds.

      little bit of its nose appeared in the '91-'92 Firebirds. the prototype 4th gen F cars were supposed to be 4 cylinder if I recall, they wound up getting repurposed in the Saturn brand I think. they had a lot of the design cues from this car in them.

    it's nice seeing proper antialiasing again. I used a stock install on my old laptop (no Veg patch needed for XP) specifically to get screenshots.

      Bandicam seems to be able to grab shots with AA on Windows 10. Had to toss through FRAPS, Afterburner and GeForce Experience before I landed on that.

      Do you know if it also captures the ingame gamma settings when using nGlide?

      I'm using nGlide for my installation so I'm going to say yes. The screenshots come out as a 1:1 like for what I see in game play.

      For AA in my game though I should also probably mention I'm enhancing or even overwriting game settings using the GeForce control panel  (driver software). Not sure that its a difference worth noting, but I don't know if its something everyone uses.

      Just for your information, Bandicam does not capture ingame gamma settings. I don't know any software to this day that can capture the ingame gamma settings from NFS High Stakes..

    Just as an FYI for anyone who is a little anal like I am. The car is identified in the viv file as "Bans" if you want to install it into a folder in line with the vehicle identity, that's the name.
