A Rendition wrapper would be awesome!
I still have a Rendition video card in my machine (as a second card) just to play ICR2. I still have a gameport-based wheel just for it, too. I don't play it very often, especially not now that all my hard drive partitions are NTFS, but I still have my old drive that has it installed in a FAT partition. I just can't quite seem to let go of it 😊
With all the add-ons that people continued to make, it's still a very solid game. To answer VirtualIceMan's question, a few of the tracks were enhanced out of the box, but fans soon came up with updates to the rest. More recently, the carbody shapes have been reworked to bring them more up to date (2000 or 2001 I think, which is fine considering the chassis have been basically frozen since then except for small tweaks).
