Freakin' Awesome Motocross Madness 2 Video

Remember when games used to ROCK?!  Remember when they allowed LAN play and didn't require an always on connection?  Remember when they were full of magic and wonder?

Well, check out this nostalgic video of my favorite game of all time... Motocross Madness 2.  Fun music and killer use of the in-game camera.

I thought I had some mad stunt skills, but the riders in this put me to shame.  FNGers will love seeing our staple 360's in here too.  Good times!!!

Please, please, PLEASE, Rainbow... give us the source code so we can make it work for everyone in Windows Vista and 7!!!  We want to keep playing...

Thanks for all the good times for the past 10 years, Rainbow Studios, and the entire Motocross Madness community.

@Anonymous: I've only seen it work fine without any tweaks on 1-out-of-5 machines or less, without doing some kind of tweaking.

Some of those machines we couldn't get to work period. Unless you consider the software rendering mode "working". Yes, that works, but looks incredibly ugly and the performance is bad.

We have made it work in a VMware virtual machine with 3D acceleration (30fps)_-- so we're looking into that as a viable option, but I don't know how to get all machines working natively in Windows 7 with 3D acceleration yet.

If you made tweaks to get yours working, I'd love to know what you did and see how it matches up against everything I've tried already.

Please share!
