San Francisco Rush on the PC in 1998? Yep, only with the Quantum 3D Raven Voodoo Banshee! The video card itself is nothing terribly special on its own, despite its glossy black PCB. But the software it came with is quite unique indeed.

● And here's the patch for San Francisco Rush The Rock Alcatraz Edition for PC:

  • At one point I misspoke and said it had a 100 _hertz_ clock. Obviously meant 100 _megahertz,_ heh. Also! Since recording this video, installer music has made a return with Flight Simulator 2020. I now regret requesting more installer music.

    • @LGR +LGR that was my first card I still have it. if you force install the regular voodoo drivers it is much quicker. and adds better support for certain resolutions.

  • The Rush arcade hardware ran on windows and had a 3d card. I don't know which offhand. Perhaps Quantum3D supplied those cards as well, and that's how they got the pack-in pc port deal? Edit: I guess I meant Rush 2049 was on windows. The Rock Alcatraz Edition apparently ran on a MIPS R5000, though still with 3dfx graphics.

  • My first 3D accelerator was a Voodoo3 2000. Slapped a little fan on it and overclocked it to 166mhz. I ran that on my K6-2 350 until I got my Duron 600 and did the pencil trick to unlock it so I could run it at 900Mhz easy. I think I ran that Voodoo3 until I got a GeForce4 Ti4200 (died after only a year) and then I went to the Radeon All-in-Wonder 9800 Pro, Radeon HD 2600 PRO, GeForce GTX 440, GeForce GT 630, GeForce GTX 950, and then the GeForce GTX 1060 I have right now. I'm looking at likely a GeForce RTX 3060 or maybe a Radeon 6600. Not only am I worried about the price/performance, but I am not happy with the power demands of the 3070, 3080, and 3090. If the 660 matches the 3060 and costs about the same but comes in 75 watts less power draw I'm getting the 6600.

  • So I thought to check ebay for these VOODOO cards and the prices are so high for 2020, that it is not even worth it lol! You can not use it with Windows 10 or modern LINUX and no, it will not run CRYSIS. Great cards to have for playing with vintage versions of UNIX and LINUX with early implimentations of 3D tech and with the likes of BeOS and other vintage operating systems. BUT for modern use? No, hell no! I can buy a 4GB PCIe card for $100USD so why pay $550 for a used 3DFX voodoo 32mb pci card?

  • That version of Gex looks like a reasonably impressive 3d platformer for the late '90s on the PC. Still not a great game, but it's not like you could play Mario 64 at the time on that platform.

  • I'd be curious to check out Rush1024.exe, Rush800.exe, and Rush640.exe as they're probably going to be lower resolution (and hopefully better framerate?) versions of the game. EDIT: Ok, you did check them out. Good call.

    ShadowPresident 420ShadowPresident 420Miesiąc temu
  • The framerate looks pretty low, and worse than that it's inconsistent. This definitely looks to be a direct, "just run the arcade code on this exact video card matching the arcade hardware in a late '90s Windows PC."

    ShadowPresident 420ShadowPresident 420Miesiąc temu
  • It suddenly makes sense, based on what you're saying about how this graphics card was often used in contemporary arcade hardware of the era. I can now understand why the game only exists for this one particular graphics card. It's because it's a low-effort port of the arcade version, leaving it wedded to this very specific Voodoo Banshee chipset and design. That's why you can only (easily) play the game with this specific card, because they didn't do anything to port it, and this specific Voodo Banshee configuration is just the arcade hardware installed within a late '90s PC.

    ShadowPresident 420ShadowPresident 420Miesiąc temu
  • What a strange idea, that you MUST have a very specific, somewhat mediocre graphics card to play this particular game. You're NOT allowed to have an awesome card, even if it's made by the same company!

I remember the day my boss came in and said we got rush for the pack out. It was a big deal because we needed something to make up for the lack luster performance. I think I remember it was offered to q3d because the quality wasn’t retail ready. I was an artist turned engineer and I did the art for the spinning logo in the display properties dialog. Great memories, Thanks for posting this and jarring these memories loose!

Heck, you could even get SF Rush 2049 on the N64 and Dreamcast, AND there was a sequel to SF Rush called Rush 2 that was only released on the N64. Those games were my childhood.
