I'm really confused. Surely that accelerator is for a Mac?

Anyway, forget 4.1 on Classics.

They're called skidmarks, at least in Australia, NZ and the UK.

On a more serious note, I believe China should have to reimburse the entire world for all the money that their disease has cost.

I believe it was the local government of Hubei province (where Wuhan is located) which hid the "pandemic". The Chinese Government has sacked several people as a result.

As someone who owns a Sega ST-V board and Virtua Fighter Remix cart, I'm going to say there's ZERO chance of any 68k based Amiga being able to run a decent version of this game.
