Guest Release #3: Virtual Karting 1+2

Fabio Bizzetti
CD cover, backing and label: Cobe
Selection screen: Cobe
ISO Master: Cobe

Cobe's second release is both of the Virtual Karting games in one pack. Although the graphics are a bit unusual and they're relatively light on content, what we've got here are fast and challenging racers with satisfying drifts and an impressive framerate.

Seriously, you'd be hard pressed to find another 3D racer this smooth on a stock AGA Amiga, let alone one with mode 7 style texture mapping!

There's a few notes attached to this one:

  • Cobe's included icons for the two Virtual Karting games, so you should also be able to play them on a Fast RAM equipped Amiga 1200 or 4000 straight from Work Bench.
  • Changing the selected track disk inside Virtual Karting 2 will crash a real CD32 (but not WinUAE). It's for this reason that Cobe has included the ability to select the track disk right from the selection screen.
  • If you don't have a keyboard, don't leave the menu idle otherwise it'll go into a demo mode that you'll have trouble getting out of. Also, if you're qualifying you'll need to run into the water in order to quit.
  • Since it the renderer is based on some tricks and hacks, this really should be played on a real Amiga. Under WinUAE it might look like this when it really should look like this. (Although if you'd prefer to play under WinUAE, try experimenting with the resolution settings in the display tab).
