New Stunt Car Racer Windows conversion

Hi all,

I have written a version of Stunt Car Racer for the PC / Windows. It is based on the Commodore Amiga version and also has some new features.

The game can be downloaded from here (for free):-

http://stuntcarracerwin32.bravesites.com/

It's only a partial conversion, but the game is playable and quite fun I think, so I'd just like to share it with the world.

Hope you enjoy it!

Dan

Thank you for keeping original graphics, just in higher resolution.

The game plays rather well I would say close to the original. One just has to get used to the speed which is maybe is caused by the framerate that is much higher after playing for more than 2 decades at A500-like speeds.

Continue the development, great work.

it would be nice to have an option to enable/disable an anti-aliased mode.

I don't suppose there's any chance of a Mac OS version of this at some point? Looks cool.

How did you do the conversion? Did you disassemble to 68000 machine code and translate to x86?

Looks good. I miss the cockpit / speed / damage graphics. Is the sound original?

Good work. Would it be possible to alter the code so that we get 60fps without speeding up everything?

This version is far superior to the other remake of this game I have, nice work. (Although it is indeed somewhat too fast, as others have already mentioned.)
