hoping someone has a good memory. Before Youtube, folks made GPL movies in avi and mov formats etc. using software available at the time.

There was one that didn't have great graphics if I remember, but it was a good demonstration of GPL. The background music was "In the End" by Linkin Park.

I have 2 cds of these old movies and I thought I had that one, but I can't find it.

Anyone remember what I'm talking about? And what it was called?

I've always appreciated this one especially Evolution Many thanks to an old friend, Steve Banks (SB of Sierra Boards) for all the great comparative shots of cars and tracks.

You, too? I have a DVD of the GPL and Nxxxx videos.

"It's So Hard", is the title. It features NASCAR Racing 4, though; not GPL.

I can't find it, but somewhere I have the GPL Ferrari Christmas video.

maybe I'm dreaming. i just remember I'd never heard of Linkin Park (wasn't into that kind of music 20 yr ago), but I didn't have Nx videos; just GPL

I looked some more. I found another one called, "No Restarts". It features NASCAR Racing. A GPL movie with the song could exist. I don't think I have it. The last chance for me would be if I find whatever the GPL Ferrari as Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer video is on.

Gracias, mi amigo. I appreciate your efforts.

btw....... SRC/NR2k3tracks may see a rebirth in the spring under new ownership. All 2k3 stuff, I guess. I gave JR Franklin rights to the site, and Galactic Cowboy (Kurtis) (if you remember him from Sierra and SRC) is gonna sign over the rights the old SRC url.

JR may have some link to the old lists, but he's going for all the stuff they are still doing for 2k3. Man........ those guys have really taken it to a new level.

I'm having fun re-learning all the cheats and short cuts in Powerslide (note avatar here) on an old 686 I re-rigged to run the old games. MOF (of simcyberworld car painting fame) sent me back my old Voodoo 5500's and I'm having a great time with them.

I think the issues that are debated are useful for dissemination.
