Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to do car headlights lighting for a racing game. I don't want to use 2 light sources per car, that seems much to expensive. I don't want to use anything that requires more than PS1.1 so that I can keep compatible with older video cards. Anyone have any thoughts/suggestions? Thanks!

Once my computer locked itself while I'd left Driver running - everything was grey and flatshaded for some reason.
It looked like they used a sort of decal method, just additively rendering two spots of light onto triangles coplanar with the road surface.

If your terrain isn't that friendly, you could try projective texturing.

Hope that helped.
