Toyota Celica GT Rally on the Falcon?

Postby Gunstar » Sun May 12, 2013 5:42 pm

I found and loved Toyota Celica GT Rally on my ST, the only thing was a slow frame rate, I figure this game would be a prime candidate for a Falcon speed-boost, but I can't find any "fixed" versions of the game. Is the ST game directly compatible with the Falcon?

The main problem is that ST games speed up different to PC games today. If you get a faster PC, the game itself does NOT run faster, but smoother. When you speed up the ST, the whole game runs faster, but often not smoother. :(

I found it fixed for the falcon, 16MHz works fantastic! Like 99% of them. I did try Wrath of the Demon, and it works best with cpu at 8Mhz and blitter at 16MHz! Most of the 3D polygon/vector stuff desperately needs a faster computer, and a Mega STE or Falcon at 16Mhz works well.

Some games are limited to the vertical blanc. You can speed them up by switching from 50 hz to 60 hz or may be 100 hz. Spacola ran extremly fast on my Falcon using 100 hz.

I used Screenblaster II, a third party hardware to give a new clock to the paddle port to be able to make custom screen modes. You can also use BlowUp or similar tools.

So if you set 100hz for desktop and game will work at 100hz?
