Super Sprint - Atari ST Conversion

Is underway.

I will simply port the Atari ST version directly, I'm not interested in making it Amiga enhanced, as there are better clones of this game already on Amiga (Nitro as a for instance).

All graphics are ripped, and work has begun on conversion of the music. Sound effects will be replaced.

Yes, this is a very good idea.
Years ago I had the same idea, too, but unfortunately I don't know how to begin, figure it...

Can you post something to test before the finished version?

...

I fully intend to upload Work In Progress versions, if for nothing else, to ensure that it works on all Amiga's and WinUAE.

To be honest, Super Sprint technically is a very simple game so I don't forsee any problems with compatibility anyway.

It won't use the blitter at all, as the sprite sizes are so weedy that a 68000 will move the whole game around with ease.

So far, the cross fading titles are done and I have also included the race selection and the high score table, next is the bare bones of the racing itself.

Nitro isn't a Super Sprint clone...

Super Off Road Racer is a better example of one:

Yeah, this is Nitro, but it doesn't have much in common with Super Sprint, apart from being a racing game.

Supercars2 its the pinnacle of this kind of games, imo.

Supersprint clones I would say Badlands and IndyHeat. but they arent very good.

Of coz, SuperOffRoad is one of the betters too. And another cool Graftgold conversion.

Super Sprint, StarQuake, and Where Time Stood Still all had release dates for the Amiga versions.
