Supercars 2 weapons

I have just started playing supercars 2 and am really enjoying it. However i cant seem to work out how to select weapons if i have more than 1 type and i see nothing in the manual. After a race i have the option to buy weapons. If i buy forward and back missiles these work fine. But if i buy mines and homing missiles i cant figure out how to use these. Even if i use all my forward misssiles, it still doesnt shoot my homing ones.

Any help appreciated.

When you are in the "shop" there is a line in the bottom where you can select among "front", "rear", "buy", "sell", etc...

Just select "front" and then click on a weapon (for example "super"), then click on "rear" and after that on a different weapon (for example "mine").

From the next race on, you will user "super" going up and "mine" going down.

Before the start of each race you can choose with weapon you want loaded in your car. You can only have two kinds of weapons "on board" each time.

Enjoy the best race car ever!

You can only use two types of weapons in each race. At the shop, you have to specify which two weapons you want to use by using the 'front' and 'rear' buttons, which assign the joystick forward and joystick backwards movements to the firing of the weapons that you choose.

This was one of my favourite games as a kid as my best mate and I used to play 2 player all the time.

EDIT - Just realised I even remember the cheat names to unlock unlimited weapons etc. Wow.

Two players mode is the best!

Thumbs up

Still one of the ones I keep going back too...

Love it..

I normally choose super on the rear and missle on the front unless there's a train on the next level them I go for boost on the rear to jump the train.

I agree it is good on multi player......

I been thinking about this for a while wouldn't it be good if we could play this online and have no computer players just 10x EAB members battling it out that would be awsome.

Surely the technology is there to make this happen now? Why's this never happened?

I only figured out how to use the other weapons years later playing the game on WinUae. I finished the game countless times on Amiga having no idea of how to activate the other weapons, I even thought it was a bug in the game or something

Very silly of me

Great game, I really like the single player too.
It did take me 20 years to beat hard mode though.

Turning those corners and hearing the screeching tyres was superb, not to mention straightening the car before a jump.

Come on guys we need to sort this out, someone on here must know a way of letting us all play this game online together?

Even if it’s just 1 level, please?

Just imagine how much fun it would be.

The sound effect that made me laugh is the "boing" when you hit another car, great way to corner quickly

Guys you do know there are tons of manuals on HOL don't you?

http://hol.abime.net/2181/manual

It's not like the old days when all you had was a disk with the name of the game hand written on it

The game would need to be rewritten surely to support 10 players online?. There is a supercars 3 remake made in java

http://jotd.pagesperso-orange.fr/supercars3/

and if it was easy enough, it would have been done.

Rewritten a bit yes, but I'll bet a small team on here could do it for a bit of fun in no time.

Just think how cool it would be. 10 of us having a laugh round 1 track of Super cars II. It would only need to be like a demo sized game, basic missiles etc (I think I remember playing the Demo of SCII back in the day before it was released, happy days), but with 10 humans instead of 2 and 8 cpu's.

Come on guys admit it if this existed it would be AWESOME!! And youd be playing it loads. It would even bring the EAB closer together actually playing one of the old classics in one place.

If we drum up enough support I'll bet one very clever chap will pick up the challenge and make a start


LOL just looking on HOL at it again they were great graphics weren't they, but they couldn't draw hands LOL
