Looking great!
It's so weird to see the CPC version's gfx moving so quickly and smoothly!

Looks cool!
Just as a "what if" conversation. What does anyone think the CPC would have needed under the hood to be able to run a game at these speeds?

Just played it for quite a bit! A few notes:


-Going from LO to HI drops speed by 50km/h, is that normal?
-It'd be nice to have an option for not-so-smooth scrolling :D I realised it doesn't look that retro with such smoothness!
-speaking of scrolling, I think it needs a bit more sense of speed...


Otherwise, I really enjoyed it :)

thanks  :D
yes, its normal. like in the arcade game, the HI drops the speed and the tires makes smoke if it is selected at over 160 km/h.
i just remember that i must do an option for having the speed in mp/h .
for the scrolling, i know it is too smooth  :-[ . the scrolling moves each 1 pixel
i will try to move it each 8 pixel, like in the retro computer....
see ya  :)

I think you're not talking about the same thing... Slow down when gearing down is ok, but i can't imagine slowing down so much when gearing up is normal...

EDIT : just tested : yes, the tires make smoke, but no slowdown.

i have try to do it like in the arcade game :
- if HI is selected at good speed (160-170 km/h) ,the speed go up normally
- if HI is selected over 160 km/h, the speed go down to ~150 km/h + smoke
thanks to have tried my game  ;)
