I usually play Steam version but recently I dug up my old 3-disc physical copy for the true classic experience.

I'm 99% sure it is version 1.0 since eyeballs are animated,
so I was surprised that all the cars have a shiny glossy appearance, because every time I watch a speedrun I notice the cars are not shiny at all (noticably Tommy's taxi)

so I'm curious why they are shiny in my copy?
(I even did a downgrade patch to be double sure it is 1.0)

Cars use static environment maps to emulate the glossy/reflective finish. I'm fairly sure the effect is present in all versions of the game. Maybe video compression causes the effect to become less noticeable or the speedrunners use mods/plugins that deliberately or accidently break environment maps rendering. Thinking

thanks for reply,

I doubt it's a mod since the speedrunning rules say no mods!

my guess is that it's a result of low graphics settings
