Dc cars spread

The Console Cars (mostly known as Dreamcast Cars or DC Cars) are the ones that are present in the Dreamcast and PlayStation versions, but are not in Nintendo 64 and Windows. Years later they were also added to WeGo Interactive games and ports. The console cars sum fourteen in total.

Almost all console cars are merely repaints of the standard ones, being BigVolt and BossVolt the only ones that have an original body style.

The only versions that have all of the console cars are the Dreamcast, iOS, Smart TV and Android. The PlayStation version do not have BigVolt and BossVolt.

Re-Volt 2 and Re-Volt 2: Multiplayer do not have Shocker, Groovster, RG1, SNW 35, and Purp XL. Three cars were included as alternative skins of others, being them RC (Volken Turbo skin), RV Loco (Cougar skin) and LA 54 (Sprinter skin, alias Sprinter XL). Some were slightly changed.

PC conversion

Convert cars from Dreamcast to PC is not too complicated, since the files and formats are almost the same. Owning the original dreamcast disk and a folder browser software, files with the .prm extension can just be moved to a folder in the PC cars directory. Parameters should be taken from the carinfo.txt, and textures need a .PVR reader such as PVR Viewer so that they can be converted to .bmp.

The first conversion pack released ever was one by Bonz, which was lost during the Re-Volt Zone transition at 2013. Another, more faithful version, was released by Re-Volt Live members, and still can be find in the site.

Since 16.0920a update, RVGL developer implemented a support for "Dreamcast content", also provided all the cars and Rooftops in an optional separated download which is available at the RVGL website.

Back in 2013, the Revolter StrixMidnight did a redesign of the dreamcast cars skins[1] giving them a far better quality from the original ones. These skins were included in RVGL as well, at 2016.[citation needed]

The PlayStation version uses .psm format for meshes, which no one figured out how to convert by far. The interest in conversion of PS1 cars is mainly directed to Fulon X, which has a totally different paintjob and body style from Dreamcast. For now only bitmaps can be converted.[2]
