Fail. You have it backwards; Virus (1988) is an x86 port of Zarch (1987) from RISC OS, which is the original game! The effects in Zarch were more impressive than their equivalents in Virus, because the Acorn machines of the time had better capabilities to render the ingame 3D effects (lighting, shadows) than Wintel machines.
There are a lot of other inconsistencies and misconceptions in Archimedes/Acorn-related threads on this board, but I suppose it's only an Amiga board, so you can't be expected to know the details...
At least you are correct in your notes that ArcElite is *the* best version of Elite out there!
