guys was chatting with the developer and shockingly only 2 americans and one canadian have registered for this NG Lotus style game :-?

The game is in constantly updated and if you like the orignal Lotus series of games then I guarantee you'll love this game on your NG Amiga or Linux!

download it at AmigaTec's homepage and if you like it consider making a donation to get your custom key that will let you create your own tracks so people all over the world can play them! Also in the works is the ability to play online with other users which is uber cool :-D

Update:
- there are many many registered users from all over the  world with the exception of US & Canada so that's why I'm pushing  for users on the other side of the pond

- AmigaRacer is available on AmigaOS4.1, MorphOS, Windows, Linux & Raspberry Pi

Checked out their website briefly, looks like a great group to support.  Wish they made things for classic systems, though.  :(

I wonder if that becomes more realistic once Vampires are all over the classic scene.

As for now, since Aegis got Wings to work on WinUAE AOS4.1FE I guess there is a fair chance this game works too...?

What do you mean? That only 3 have registred or that only 3 in North America have registred? Because I'm Swede and I'm registred and I know for a fact that the New Zeelander Epsilon is too.

Sadly not - I tried it :D

Fragmentation is a big problem for OS4 since it runs on low-memory, non-hardware accelerated platforms such as Blizzard/Cyberstorm PPC/WinUAE and also on overpowered beasts with tons of RAM + hardware compositing like the X1000. Trying to write a game that works well for both extremes is difficult to impossible.

It's funny, 'cause there's stuff I thought I'd never get running on WinUAE that works surprisingly well (Freespace, Blender) and other things that you'd think emulation would handle easily (BubbleShooterDX) that fail completely - Amiga Racer's the latter I'm afraid :(

The good thing about emulation though is that the software (and the hardware it runs on) is always evolving - PPC emulation will get faster, WinUAE will continue to evolve (I'm hoping Toni tackles Voodoo 3 emulation soon) and the underlying hardware gets faster and more efficient so what doesn't work today will hopefully become a possibility in the future.

@ Yasu

to be clear, only in US & Canada there are currently very small amount of registered users  but developer (Mike) says there are many from other parts of world so  just wanting to push those on the other side of the pond (actually  reminds me to update main post)

Downloaded on my X1000 and unpacked. FANTASTIC!!! I'm in! I will Register and Donate. It's not like buying a new shiny box with a disk, but it's good to see new stuff. Runs great on my X1000. I hope they develope other games as well.

Cheers!!
