Impressive scores. What are your wing and tyre settings, rexsu&ED?

Thank you but there is a big room for improvement.
Kamikaze mode for my settings, Wing High et Tyre Hard.

@lifeschool
Refuelling is not necessary for leg1.

Having said that, the car physics is more like Go-karts, and the car handles like an arcade kart game rather than an F1 sim.
Thanks lifeschool - Pro feels a lot better, much less auto-steering. Game is good fun.

Looks like it's go time again.

Note that since ED also voted for Alien Fish Finger the next 2 games for Round 3 will still be Screech and Alien Fish Finger (2011 revised version) if he wins.

I found Imola in Amateur mode needs refuelling if you crash a lot like me, as it costs more fuel to start the car and go up through the gears. I almost got to the line many times only to run dry of fuel, so I know this can happen.

I am surprised that apart from John, so many people are playing this game using emulation, but dont play it with full screen. Its like playing through a letter box. Comparing capehorns image to Johns, the fonts look squashed. Thats because this games graphics were designed in NTSC (even though its French game). If you have a 16:9 display like John, you can open the Filter options and choose Auto Scaling. Also move the Point/Bilinear filter slider to ON. This will make the image you can see on the screen blow up to borderless 16:9, and I think this mode makes any amiga game look superb on any modern screen. It certainly helps when looking in the distance to see cars in this game.

^ I prefer "No scaling" and then manually do the integer scale that uses most of the screen and add 75% transparent scanlines. But yeah, the "Default" scaling option is terrible.


Went straight to Expert level for leg 2 because everyone says it's so easy. Silverstone and Hockenheim definitely are, but Spa will take some practice:



Leg 1 (Pro): 45,677
Leg 2 (Expert): 60,759

Looking forward to it.

Surprised you posted your Next Circuit screens instead of Game Over, as this would have given some more score. Beating Spa is no mean feat.

Leg 1 was clearly won by rexsu, Leg 2 by ED-209. The total scores were very close in the end but rexsu manages to take the GOLD medal.
SILVER for ED-209.
And a well deserved BRONZE medal goes to Vroom world champion lifeschool.

The team competition was close as well. EAB beats Lemon 65-60 and now leads 2-0.

In the league rexsu leads with 35 points, followed by ED-209 with 29 and LinesMachine with 27 points.

Leg1 for me and leg2 for ED-209 so draw
That said, the score of ED-209 on leg2 is a world record in my opinion.
I know I can improve my score but 151k it seems very hard to match.

A draw I'll take that
Yeh everything went right for me on leg 2, don't think I could ever better it!
Also a refuel is not required on Spa, so only one pitstop is need for the entire leg
