Hi folks,

I have seen reference of the Spanish demo a few times, and that it included Monza and was version 0.0.0.5. I had Monza in the UK with my cover disk demo back in 1998 as well, and the Watkins Glen version of the demo I have also lists a 0.0.0.5 version number. Can anyone point me in the right direction on whether it's real that there was a Spanish demo that was different, or is what I had from my UK coverdisk also that same earlier version?

If anyone has this Spanish demo can they upload it somewhere for me?

Thanks :)

Tim

I made this video of 0.0.0.5 a little while ago so presumably I have it somewhere!

If I find it I will upload it.

Thanks! I'm really interested if this was maybe mislabelled, perhaps earlier than 0.0.0.5 if the other demos were that version, or whether they were mislabelled. I'll try to compare :) Thanks again

Oh wow these files are at least three months older than the demos I have had before...

You're welcome! :)

This demo definitely has some features (and lack of features) that are different compared to the regular demo and it is not Spanish either.

E.g. 0.0.0.5 has no tyre pressure or temperature modelling (which, if you know anything about GPL's physics engine is a pretty crucial thing to be missing) and there is dynamic camera movement when you hit the guard rail. I wonder if that latter feature is still in the 1.2.0.2 EXE.

Do you have it? Could you post the files?

0.0.0.5 seems to be from May 1998, but this is two months earlier!
