Oh man... I loved playing Hydro Thunder on the Dreamcast and I was so miffed that it got released on the Playstation because I KNEW it wasn't powerful enough for the game. Did eventually get released as a bundled game on the Playstation 2 but the Dreamcast STILL did it better! This was one of THE best racing games I EVER played! Game wasn't lying when it said your crazy trying to defeat EXPERT! Took a perfect game play using ALL the shortcuts and a good bit of LUCK to beat those nightmares! But boy? You had a killer time doing it!

This is such a good game. I remember playing it at the arcade as a kid.
Also, for those who want to reset the save, just delete Hydro.cfg

You can change the resolution by using the dgVoodooCpl.exe found in same folder. plenty of options to check out there. From what i can tell it seems the game used the voodoo cards back in a day and that dgVoodoo is just a wrapper that allows us to play it using directx. SO check out dgVoodooCpl, i was able to make it full screen but it is stretched a little bit. just find what ever resolution works best for you enjoy

sparkitty, is it actual force feedback? like steering feedback, or just vibration?

Such a amazing game to have played during my childhood. Used to have a sit down arcade cabinet of this game in the old bowling alley we went to and I'd play this so much. I didn't even know of a PC version until I looked it up on here and what surprised me as well is that this game has wheel support. Ran it using my G27 after seeing it had Force Feedback and it works great after lowering the FF and changing the Steering angle to around 360. Just a question, though. Does anyone know how to reset the save for this game so I can start over?
