Default Classic benchmark/demo from early 2000 help (SOLVED!)

Hey guys, do any of you remember these two demos from early 2000s that were fairly intensive and cool looking? One had you on this pretty cool landscape, first person, and this hog beast was following you.

The other I only remember walking down this natural ditch and into a cave. This demo came out first, I think.

I think they were both made by the same devs, and I'm pretty sure these were both pre-Crytek first demo, but I cannot remember the demos names and it's driving me nuts...

[EDIT] They were Dagoth Moor Zoological Gardens and Isle of Morg!

So a guy comes upto me with a steering wheel poking out from his fly.

I say "What's that for?"

He replies. "This? ****ing thing is driving me nuts!"

Sorry, I'm not much help. ::

Lol crainger... ;-)

They looked like game/scene demos, but with lots of polys and hires texures. I remember they ran hella slow.

Damnit I wish I could remember the names!

Oh well, maybe my memory will dredge it up in time...

Thanks, guys!
