An evening with Desert Racing

Well, I bought it nearly a year ago but had no time for a real test ride.

I hope itīs not too slow on my 060! Will check out the update after Amiga finished full installation.

Wish me luck

You'll need it mate! I got about 10fps on my 040/33, that after reducing the detail etc. It was "playable" (in the loosest possible sense).

I bought it in the summer.... judging by the dates on the files it was already updated on the CD.

Well, I tried to get out the best of Desert Racing.
Adjusting the camera, finding a compromise between details and speed, ...

Best result is 13 fps (with patch)
(I donīt want to play via WinUAE)

I donīt understand it. I tried a playable demo of 2000 and itīs much faster!


Could it be that the AGA version is faster than the RTG executable?

After all I decided to try it again using the cockpit view.

Ralf Schmidt should update it again.
20 fps are possible on 060, I think!

I think even if you could get it to run quickly there'd be no point playing it as it's one of the worst designed and programmed games I've ever seen. It's a total rip-off to be honest.
