EAB/Lemon Super League 2018: Round 8 - Lotus Turbo Challenge 2

EAB/Lemon Super League 2018: Round 8 - Lotus Turbo Challenge 2

Starts: 00:01 July 1st Finishes: 23:59 July 21st

Rules

Post a picture of your score here with the score written underneath. Enter as often as you like. Only scores achieved during the round's time frame count.

IMPORTANT - You MUST play the WHDLoad version linked to in this thread - as the scoring systems seem to vary amongst different versions, we have supplied the WHDLoad version on a High Density ADF to play in UAE for those who don't use WHDLoad normally, so you can boot it and play it like normal. You need an A1200 setup emulated with a High Density floppy drive and 4MB of Fast RAM.

No cheating of any kind (including score leeching) - this includes save states. No continues/passwords allowed. If you suspect anyone of cheating please let us know in private - anyone found guilty will be banned for the entire season.

Remember, anyone can join in at any time. Have fun and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Downloads

- HD ADF
- WHDLoad-installed

Extras

- Full rules and FAQ (incorporating the Hall of Fame)

To get to the end of this game you really have to practice and memorize the final two tracks: Marshes and Storm

Here are the passwords that allow you to practice every track:

Night - TWILIGHT
Fog - PEA SOUP
Snow - THE SKIDS
Desert - PEACHES
Highway - LIVERPOOL
Marshes - BAGLEY
Storm - E BOW

My playing ability has decreased over the last year *sigh*. I can not reach my old scores anymore.

Congratulations!

Your aspect ratio is painful to see (so much unused black space on your widescreen). I'd really recommend to disable the "Default"-scaling of WinUAE and set it to "No scaling":

I prefer to choose the Auto-Scaling filter and it means the image is always full screen, and I prefer the Point/Bilinear filter mode to '1' to make everything smoother.

Yes, I remember you recommended that to me before and I forgot to do it. I've changed my settings now and had another go at the game

Just as intended.

@lifeschool: Auto scaling results in non-integer scaling, that's why you need bilinear filtering or else it'd look horrible. With integer scaling it's not needed.

John, I tried your exact setup, and it blew the whole screen up x2.5, so that didnt work for me.

You probably have set a filter above that also doubles everything. Needs to be Null filter and 1x.

Is your resolution 1920x1080?

I have no double filter, I use Native screensize, and Im using 2440 x 2650. No matter, I'm 1000% happy with auto, I never need to change it.

Dont forget everybody, to vote for your Z games!

John, will you be playing in this round? Would be good to see how far behind Lemon are going in to the final week.
