Faye Morey as Die Anna on the Prat Cam.

The Prat cam (also spelled PratCam) is a feature on the HUD in Carmageddon and the Splat Pack. The top-left of the screen shows a "reaction cam" of the driver in his/her cockpit during the race. During the race, the player may smack the car, make it fly, collect powerups, etc. and the driver's expression changes accordingly. A happy expression if an opponent is wasted, screaming if (s)he's flying, or a disappointed expression if (s)he lost the race.

Max Damage was portrayed by Stainless Software's resident nutter Tony Taylor, who was filmed as the team hit him with a pool cue to simulate collisions. Gentler treatment was bestowed upon 14-year-old Faye Morey, who was cast as Die Anna after auditions from high school students.

The prat cam can be enabled or disabled by pressing the P key during a race.

Possible reactionsEdit

This is a list of all the 47 sequences possible. For more information, see Prat cam mode.

In the 'animations' column, the legend is as follows: Nr (AP%, SP%, SN, SN) -> Nr (...) Where:

  • Nr is the animation's number,
  • AP is the chance that this animation has to play instead of the others.
  • SP is optional. It's the percentage at which a sound plays or not. If a sound is to be played,
  • SN indicates the sound(s)'s id.
  • -> means that it plays an animation from the left side and then plays one from the right side, looping.

AnimationsEdit

This is the order in which the animations are added on the PRATCAM.TXT files.

The first underscore _ in the filename means either A for Annie or F for Frank. The second is either L for low resolution (52x46, in the 32x20x8 folder) or H for high resolution (104x110, in the 64x48x8 folder).
