Interstate '76
- Genre : Action
- Developer : Activision
- Publisher : Activision
- Released : 1997
- Platform : Windows





- Description rearranged from Wikipedia.org and Mobygames.com :

Interstate '76 is a vehicular combat video game for Windows. It was developed and published by Activision and released on 28 March 1997.
All the in-game vehicles in Interstate '76 are based on real cars, including many period American muscle cars.

In a dark alternate vision of 1976, the Federal U.S. Government has faltered and the world suffers from the effects of an oil crisis. Armed gangs terrorize the roads of the American South West. You are Groove Ch[youtube][/youtube]ampion - when your sister Jade is killed you inherit her custom-built Picard Piranha and become a vigilante, with only revenge on your mind.

Interstate '76 is a vehicular combat game with a 1970s theme which means muscle cars & funky disco music. Hit the road and seek the killer of Groove's sister in 17 scripted missions across open-ended trackless areas, or battle creepers in the instant melee mode, against up to 7 other human players.

The player can equip their car with different weapons, like machine guns, turrets, grenade launchers and mines.
Although the game world is not intended to be realistic, the car handling and collision physics are.


- TRIVIA :
Spoiler:
- CARS :
The cars that appear in Interstate '76 are all based on real cars (of course the names had to be changed because of copyright/trademark issues):

» Courcheval Cavera - Chevrolet Camaro.
» Courcheval Courchelle - Chevrolet Chevelle.
» Courcheval Manta - Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
» Courcheval Royale - Chevrolet Caprice.
» ABX AMZ - AMC Javelin AMX.
» ABX Leprechaun - AMC Gremlin.
» Dover Lightning - Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger.
» Picard Jackrabbit - Plymouth Superbird.
» Picard Piranha - Plymouth Barracuda.
» Phaedra Palomino - Ford Mustang.
» Phaedra Pony - Ford Pinto.
» Phaedra Clydesdale - Ford Bronco.
» Phaedra Rattler - Shelby Cobra.
» Phaedra Coupe - Ford Coupe (Street Rod).
» Glenn Inc. Bushmaster - Jeep.
» Jefferson Sovereign - Lincoln Continental.
» Vikea 420 Wagon - Volvo 420 GL.
» Moth Truck - Mack Truck.

- Cutscenes :
It is a common misconception that the cinematic cutscenes are performed in realtime by the 3D engine of the game. Although they use solid-filled polygons and low-vertex models, they are pre-rendered and compressed with the Cinepak codec. They are not rendered in realtime. The blocky appearance of the cutscenes is intentional.






- INSTRUCTIONS :

Download and Extract the RAR file with 'WinRar' or '7Zip'. You will get the 2CDs of the Game, aswell as a Manual and Patches/Updates.
One Patch updates the Game to Interstate '76 Gold Edition (which adds GLIDE and Rendition 3D support). The other one makes the Game have Direct3D (D3D) support.

But first, you have to execute the archive "unecm.bat" (not 'unecm.exe') inside "CD-ISOs / I76_DISK1" to decompress the CD-Image file of CD1 (it will also delete unnecessary Files in the End). No such thing is necessary for CD2.

Then, Mount the CD1 ["CD-ISOs / I76_DISK1"] Image in a Virtual CD Drive using 'DaemonTools' or 'Alcohol120' (If you don't have one already, you must create one first) .

Then, Install the Game from the Virtual CD Drive as from a "normal" CD.
When it ask for CD2, Unmount CD1 and Mount CD2 ["CD-ISOs / I76_DISK2"].

Alternatively, you can Burn the CD Image as a Physical CD with 'Nero' or 'ImgBurn' and put it in Your Physical CD Drive and Install from there.

If you're in the US like me, the game will not install in WIndows XP, unless you change "Language for Non-Unicode Programs" to United Kingdom. It will install with this change. You can change it back and it will still play. Worked for me!

Spoke too soon... You will also need to lower the hardware acceleration for audio devices. Turn it to the lowest setting, (not mute) and the sound will come through just fine. If you don't it the game will crash when you try to start a mission. Also, it helps to change splash.exe to compatibility Windows 95.
