EAB/Lemon Super League 2011: Round 7 - Vroom

EAB/Lemon Super League 2011: Round 7 - Vroom


Starts: 00:01 May 29 Finishes: 23:59 June 18

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.

Play Arcade mode.

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.

In an exciting twist, the winner of this round gets to choose a year between 1987 and 1995 for Round 8 after the competition's break, when only games from the chosen year can be voted for. Well, except 1995, as that was taken last season.

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

The AZERTY thing caught me out too, comically, so this picture is a second take...!

Rock'n'Roll used to do the same thing. Confused the hell out of me when I was a kid, especially because one of the cheat codes used those letters.

Hey guys, I've just posted a few hints and tips on the Lemon compo thread, so if you're new to this, or just want to be nosy, check it out. This is one of my favourite Amiga games of all time - so lets have a really intense battle before the summer break !

I've always played the multiplayer version,the original version is much more difficult,I don't like it.

The game has a sort of assisted turns,however you must initiate the turn first then the game turns the car itself being adjusted to the bend radius.
The smooth ride is the best advice and avoid slow cars(almost impossible).You don't get frustrated if some car passes you,not all the cars go so fast and when finish the compo play the multiplayer version

Playing on WinUAE (cycle exact),my miggy is too fast.


This is a video that I made long time ago:

Send a message via ICQ to lilalurl
It is (hidden) under the left hand, so if you want to check you have to steer the wheels .

Check frikilokooo's video at 0:06 for instance.

Yes, the tyre 'T' light indicator is located under the drivers left thumb, the engine 'E' indicator light is located under the drivers right thumb. The engine is only a problem if you're using manual gears.

The game seems to have a narrow window where it will allow a car to enter the pits. If you miss this window, the game thinks you've missed the pits and seems to steer the car away. It's odd, I know. I get around this by cutting it on the grass and driving into the pit late head-on so that there's no steering involved.

@ frikilokooo - Nice score!, 66.5 by level 5 - you keep going pal, seems like you're the only one holding the EAB candle so far. Let's not have another whitewash - any more EAB readers wanna join?? This is the last one before the Summer break you know...?

No positions gained but a narrowly better score - I only overtook eight cars on the French circuit but at least I finished this time.

Oh, and eight days to go - where is everybody...?

I don't really like it so I haven't been playing it, I thought in F1 the slow drivers were supposed to get out of the way of the fast drivers.

Back before health & safety ruined the racing aspect in formula 1 (e.g. when the game was made) the faster drivers had to negotiate a way past the slower (lapped) drivers. Blue flags (to tell drivers a car was about to lap them and they must let them through) were only introduced sometime in the last 10 years or so. F1 has been going for decades.

I'm very busy working on something I want finished ASAP. I do hope to get time over the weekend to play it for a few hours.
