Was Enduro Racer written by Iain Morrison of Outrun\Turbo Outrun\Hydra\Ice Software fame? It is quite a good conversion for him. Is it in scope to use better graphics?

The Sega 16 hardware had 2 68000s at 10MHz. One CPU was used just to draw the road, and didn't it have 128 sprites and graphics scaling hardware? It would be a big job to colour reduce\fit\preshift all those graphics into an ST.

I would definately trace\fix any of those stack breaking functions. They just look wrong.
Still got, still working: Atari 4Mb STe, 520STFM, 2.5Mb STF.
Hardware: Cumana CSA 354, Ultimate Ripper, Blitz Turbo, Synchro Express II (US and UK Versions).

a video of some work in progress.

i am still doing a lot of basic optimization i have also begin rewriting some of the OSD routine and the routines behind ,(like speed and score), so the score system will be new.
i have also been fooling around a little with the color palette, but i don't what to spend to much time on that right now, if i later on redo some of the graphic.

the of score, speed lap time high score is being made as strings(instead of values), so all of it is being printing with a slow print string routine.



i have also been playing with the music,so here is my take on them, please let me know if you think they suck to much :lol:
the main track still need a lot to it, and they also need some fine tuning
also one from the forum have offered to help with some SID versions of original versions.
again nothing is finale

Thx for the input :cheers:
"new enduro racer.mp3" still need a lot of love :lol:
one of the problem i have with this tune, is the next tempo is to slow compare to the original...
but if i end up using my own tunes and format, i will probably let the original be.

Sorry to sound so negative but it(new enduro racer.mp3) does still not sound good enough to replace the original music, maybe you should be a bit more restrictive with the use of timer effects (i guess it uses 200hz effect or similar?) it almost makes some instruments sound like sound effects :)

And about the game so do i have a suggestion (if possible of course) of a thing that always bothered me with the ST version of the game and that is the games camera is directly behind the driver and it makes it difficult to see obstacles and such on the road, the arcade original has the camera above the driver with free view of the road. If it is possible to fix that so would it be a great improvment of gameplay :)

thx for the input, the score is still not finish, i'll will fine tune the sounds when i am more less finish with the track,
but i will probably keep the original track in the game so you can chose to use them.
btw is it the arpeggio sound you don't like? in the beginning, or in the end or both.

i have try see if i could change the the camera movement in the game, when jumping, no luck so fare,
i have not study the code enough, to know if it's possible, one thing i would like to do is to make the terrain more hilly,
but again it is only an update of the program not a completely new version, but you are right the camera angle could be better, and also the speed feeling could need some.

here is a little update of the work
OSD is more or less finish, it also now show the high score, and it work, so if you score more then the high score, it will start counting with the score.
