@Tuxedo

Which system were you playing it on? I found the animation instantaneous and the car handling was great on Windows 10 and MorphOS 3.9

@danwood

AmigaOS4.1FE
Pegasos2 G4@1.13
RAM 1GB
Radeon9000pro

I'll try under MOS 3.9 when I've time to check...

Any onther OS4.x user can say anything about that?


EDIT:

Ok, I tryed.
Maybe I've stated bad, the main problem with the car animation was taht it was not so "real"...The animation frames was displayed not in the way I expect when I press directional buttons.
For example if you press right with little hit the car drive to right without show any frame...

The general feeling was that the car was on the ice since it steer without any real reason to steer...

Hope that time I explained correctly...

Also the 20 secs checkpoint wasnt nice since no time to have a good race between checkpoints also the track have something not so good*maybe only due the shortness...

So the game can be a good game with rather few, important, improvements IMHO...

@klx300r

I tried the latest demo but I can not accelerate ?? it seems to work initially then stops and then time out !
is it a limitation of the demo ?

EDIT: never mind, I thought the game used the buttons to accelerate/brake

good news from the Amiga Racer developer Mike :

"Amiga Racer Version 2.9c is available for download/update.
This version includes a lot of bugfixes, also the problem that some machines with AmigaOS4 could not reach the first checkpoint when using ARCS has been addressed."

Also, AmigaTec / Amiga Racer will be present at the GamesCom 2016 in Cologne.
We will have our own Amiga Booth there and showing Amiga Racer on several systems including the Amiga Racer Arcade machine. There will be also news about the new 68k game that gets developed besides Amiga Racer. Of course we will take pictures and videos from that event and we will share it with people that have supported us with donations so far! "

@ lionstorm

the new update solved the problem of accelerating with the USB gamepad so hopefully ti works for you too

another update:

Hi,

this is another major update that addresses many user feedback.
Finally we have now (as from many users wished) a proper lotus turbo challenge start!
Exactly as in Lotus you're driving against 20 opponent cars now. The race start is now completely different.

More information about this update can be found here:
http://amigatec.com/drupal/?q=node/260

This update also fixes a bug that slowed down some players when passing the checkpoints.

@lionstorm

I found that you can't hold down the accelerator when you start. Otherwise it just sits there and all the cars beat you off the mark. You have to wait until all the cars take off and get in front of you because they are so fast and then you can step on it. When it's too late. And puts you at a disadvantage as well as annoy you.

I'll see if the new update fixes this bug. Unless this was intended.

@All

So I tested the latest version. I thought it had been fixed as the car did drive off. But next time I played the car just froze.

There were certainly some changes. I came first on both tracks! That's never even happened on the first before and the second was impossible.

Hi guys,

sorry for not replying earlier here, but i was really busy with the new Amiga Racer Collector's Edition Elite.

This Collector's Edition is professionally done, it looks absolutely "High End" with glossy shiny black colors, vibrant CD Colors and a proper printed quickstart game manual in the box.

The CD includes the game for the following OS systems:

AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, Windows (98-10), Linux, Mac OS X (intel), Raspberry Pi

and the keyfile from this Collector's Edition also works with the 2 new upcoming 68k games: Rampage and ACE for Amiga 500. (Later this year, currently under development)

So in case you want a beautiful looking gamebox plus a lot of fun then you can order it directly in the shop: www.amigatec-shop.com - shipping world wide. You also support with your order our game and software development for the Amiga Platform! (NG and Classic)

PS: We're at the gamescom this year presenting the Amiga Platform and our games!

Have fun and thanks for your support,
Mike

another update: btw, in this version I noticed a bug on the gas button where it intermittently stops working and I have to press the button again to get acceleration back, I've reported this already so hopefully it gets fixed soon.

----------------------------------------


Amiga Racer Version 3.93 Update available! This update includes now a smart information system (including version checking system), so it will alert you automatically when there is a new version available! You can then directly press Space (or Firebutton) to autoupdate or press Cancel (ESC) and update later within the Game Menu Live Updater. The game will also remind you now if you are driving with the generic Collector's Edition Elite key that you should register your name for all online tournament functionality. I saw in the server logfiles that quite a lot of people driving the Online Tournament with the generic key. Once you have purchased the Collector's Edition Elite (or the Collector's Edition Online) you can easily request (for free) your personalized keyfile to join Online Highscore in the tournament.

@klx300r

Considering the price of the game
If I wanted to receive the activation file by making a donation what I should donate considering the price it takes to buy it in the store?
