Wow page 1 of this came up in a Google search - I can't believe how long it been going!

Big thanks to Howard for his work on this.

lI used to have that trainer mentioned back in 2013, and I'd disable the time limit, stick a CD on and go for a nice leisurely drive admiring the scenery with the Tridef 3D software rendering the game in anaglyph (red/cyan) 3D.
So I have a small request... for the next build would it be possible to turn off the time limit to enable cruising along at Sunday driving speeds? :)

Also, the 3D effect in tridef is very impressive with FXT, even though anaglyph "technology" is pretty ancient.  If there was a way to render two view simultaniously ingame in red/cyan, other players could experience the awesome 3Dness.  The red/cyan glasses are about Ģ1/$1 for a pack of 3 online, but Tridef no longer exists as a business.

BIG THANKS again.

Quoting from the readme.txt:

"Bonus Features/Easter Eggs
--------------------------

Launch the wrapper with the command line flag "-OuttaTime" to freeze the timer, giving you infinite time to screw arou...err beta test for me."


Anyway that's pretty cool.  I could never get a good 3d effect with old school glasses though.  If you can find a wrapper that did side by side 3d that would work with most VR goggles and 3d tvs.

Hey thanks for that! sorry I missed it in the .txt
Tridef can render in various 3D methods, I've had it running in a Google Cardboard type headset using Tridef + Trinus3D.

The company went bankrupt so I'm not sure on the morality/legality of downloading a cracked version...

Thanks again

This hack is great!

I am implementing it on my Daytona USA 2 Deluxe cabinet and one thing I am still missing is the sparks address I can't find it in the last OR2006C2C.CT file?

I am using my own program to send the codes to the Daytona 2 driveboard so all seems to work, stuff like force on the wheel coming from xforce and wheel vibration when you drive offroad, also started to change the vibration depending on the surface (snow will vibrate only a little while others rumble a lot more) also when hitting the sides the wheel rotates the opposite direction of the wheel, this gives a nice effect.

So want to use that sparks address to rotate the wheel when hitting cars.

Thanks!

Howard now that you seem to have a very good understanding of how the game works and its code, would it feasible or practical to someday hack the game to work in VR, and support VR headsets like the Oculus Rift? Or is this something only Sumo would be able to do?

I think, if it's going to happen, it'll happen via a proxy dll like the aforementioned tridef.  That being said, due to the way the game renders a scene you'll probably never be able to look around... it'd be a simple stereoscopic image.

Btw, I'll look up the spark address when I get a chance.

It doesn't glitch in the new version.... I did some endless loops.

Sweet! Can't wait to try it.

Posted this in the other FXT thread not knowing there is a longer thread:

Quote
Found a bug.

I'm playing in windowed mode but the proper resolution is not being correctly used. For example, if I use 1024x768, my screenshots are coming out as 1022x744. This causes massive tearing where rows and column of pixels would be missing. The easiest way to spot this is in the car selection screen where round wheel arches would tear and look a few lines of pixels are missing.

Also, the PC version is known to look inferior and "grainy" because of the lack of mipmapping where textures would have this ant crawling effect when in motion. Do you think integrating mipmapping is possible?

Sorry if I appear to be necro-ing an old thread but I want to know if there has been any success in uncensoring the Outrun 2 SP model of Clarissa. Heehee Boobies aside, I really do not like censorship especially when the arcade version of Outrun2SP had her baps proudly on display.

Sp, what do we know about the modded versions of OR2:C2C selling as arcade boards? Just type "Outrun" into Aliexpress and they'll come up in droves. I'd never heard of them. Someone posted on a FB group i'm part of, asking for repair advice, but i hadn't even heard of such. I hear they have language and music mods, and some sort of LAN lobby to link up cabs, but i'd like to know if there's anything worth leveraging there.

This one is called Outrun 2017...

Just going by some of the videos it looks like they've took some of my hacks and finished them.  The sounds it makes in the online lobby are a sign that they are just using memory manipulation to auto progress through the menus like I do.  About the only thing that's noteworthy is they've managed to get the hud in the proper aspect ratio  at least I think it is.... some of those vids are very zoomed out on the action.

I don't want to cause any mad hype or anything, but this news did get me to work on fxt a little bit today, which is probably more than I've done with it in a year.

I hope everyone is doing well.  I'm doing the usual post christmas ritual of installing games and waiting FOREVER to install, so I had some time on my hands.  I'll have to do a once over to check for bugs, but I think the new course editor is done, which lets you add custom courses to the game without overriding your existing ones.  I'll check fxt itself when I get a chance.... hopefully there will be a new release before Feb.

So I just got C2C running on my ROG Strix 17-inch laptop, took a bit of tinkering and digging through these forums to get it running well, but I'm happy with the results... except for one thing. Whenever I play for a certain amount of time (basically if I finish a race or even just spend longer than a minute or so in-game), the game will get stuck on the loading screen that leads back to the main menu. I'm really not much of a tech wizard, I'm just good at looking for and following instructions, so I really need to find someone who knows what they're doing and can help me with this issue. Anyone wanna lend a helping hand?

The PC version of OR2 C2C does not contain the Bonus stages. In fact, no version of OR2 C2C has them, only the OG version.

Cool video. And yup, like Isamu said, the Scud Race and Daytona USA 2 tracks aren't in Coast 2 Coast. The only way you can play them is by picking an OG xbox (or 360) and getting a copy of Outrun 2.

First time seeing this!

I will gladly read all 29 pages if the answer is in there, but was hoping someone who's watched this from the beginning can answer this for me.

Can I play this on my Mame Star Wars cabinet? I'd be using the Star Wars yoke connected via USB and shows up as a game controller. Like I said, I don't mind doing the work, I just would like some assurances that it's doable before embarking on 29 pages of reading!

Eh you are going to need pedals.  Outrun relies on the old tap brake then floor it to drift mechanic.

Thanks for that. I watched some videos and you're right. The sacrifice in gameplay is too much.

The Star Wars cabinet does a really good job with the original arcade Outrun. I don't have gas, but shifting the handles forward provides gas. It doesn't really impact gameplay for me, but I could see not being able to initiate the drift being a problem.

So a while back a posted about an infinite loading glitch that kept popping up whenever I finished a game. I'm still having issues with that, and was wondering if anyone has an idea of how to fix it? Please ask if you need more details.

Eh.... I'll get to it eventually.   

My doctors have monkeyed with my medication to try to give me more energy and so far all they have managed to do is increase the frequency of my headaches.   Right now I'm working on personal projects, which does include my racing rig and obviously whenever I work on that I tend to work on outrun.   I'm not going to make any promises until they get me normalized though.
