3DMark Cow History:

? In 2001 you can enable an easteregg where you can drive around and shoot down flying cows:

Open the Edit Projekt dialog and inserHoly Cow!b> as Project Name, this will unlock the Game Demo button.

? In 03 there are some cows at the end of the first part of the demo.

? In 05 you can enable an easteregg that replaces some of the the Arolphins (flying dolphins) with Cowlfins (flying cows) at the end of the Demo (credits screen):

Start 3DMark05 with the commandline para-lehm?m? and run th"C:\Program Files\Futuremark\3DMark05\3DMark05.exe" -lehm?ehm?

I was playing with Mr.Ripper (Plugin for FAR manager) and saw that the new addon supports the dat files from 3DMark03, PCMark04 & 3DMark05.

I extracted credits.ogg from 3DMark05.dat (Poets Of The Fall - Lift Me Higher) and stumbled upon cow.dds (see pic).

Ha!.. another cow easteregg,.. I searched the Net and found .... nothing,.. so I opened 3DMark05.dat again and found demo_credits_fun.txt and demo_end_fun.evascene and this file has some references to the easteregg: Cowlfin, cow.dds and EasterEggCow.

In short: I opened 3DMark05.exe with a hex editor and searched for demo_credits_fun.txt, in the same line I found:)lehm?. :)

Random off-topic trivia. "Poets of the Fall" did the end music for Max Payne 2, the track "Late Goodbye".

Launch the Demo and wait for the Credits (at the end), then wait for about 20 - 30 seconds and the flying cows will appear. :)
