   posted by AndreasM on 22-Apr-2007 23:54:25 (1687 reads)
Recently a new patch for Desert Racing has been put online.

The game should run faster now and we hope that different problems could be eliminated.

The 3rd patch for the demo of Desert Racing can be downloaded directly from the support page.

The patch for the full version is only available directly via email (because of personalization) from .

I'd be interested to know is this new patch address some of the major issues that Total Amiga had with Desert Racing, and so might it is no-longer an awful racing game but a half-decent one? (Too much to hope? And can I be bothered to re-download & install a 200+Mb demo to find out?)

If you kept the original demo download all you need to do is download the patch for the demo see

I have been meaning to give the demo a try again since spotting the patch as if the control issues have been fixed it looked quite promising.

If I remember at the weekend I will give it another try as I really wanted to like Desert Racing as we don't see very many new original tittles on the Amiga of late but, the game just wasn't any fun.
