That's why pc always stunk for gaming, and why amiga ruled

Although - the Amiga 1200 required some extensive fiddling for old games too. Remember messing with the boot-menu, degrader and whatnot for ages trying to get some games to work on A1200? In the end many of them had to be collected _again_ as aga-fixed version.

Still _no_ comparison to the pain that was ms-dos though.

Just wanted to drop a note that I just checked playing supercars international on winxp with vdms (run with vdms) and JoytoKey 3.7.4.

I set up my Amiga joysticks to keys "asdwz" and "ajklm" in joytokey, then defined those keys in supercars for the two players. Works like a dream with two joysticks now!

I had a little sound delay due to vdms, but I guess that is my soundchip crapping out again, just as in uae. Buffers could probably be tweaked in vdms.ini, but won't bother for now.

I think this supercars is much easier due to smooth scrolling. Way easier to center car on the road, and also you can react much faster with smooth scrolling. Dunno if that's good or bad, I liked the amiga feel of it...

I know it's no longer in The Zone, but was wondering if this will work on a real amiga?

My brother raves about it!

I have read the thread some days ago, and you can read in a message that the game is hosted on the underdogs site:

Nice one EmuChicken!

Who ever would have thought that back-in-the-day the PC was able to produce a decent, non-3d game??!!?? I bet you needed something like a 486 33mhz with 4mb RAM to run it where an A1200 would handle it and probably do a better job!

I really like this better than Supercars 1 and 2.
Shame there's no Amiga version.
Thanks for sharing.

...most definitely, I wish some talented Amiga programmer could make a port out of this

Probably not that easy though
