Hi Geecab, I just register to thank you for your great work
, and for ask you a question. Monaco GP is ridiculously similar to Super Speed Race /V / GP V from Taito, and i'm a big fan of both. Unfortunately, just like Monaco GP, SSR doesn't use a CPU but transistors and that's why we can't emulated them. When i saw your project running flawless i was impressed and i have to ask you the question: There's a possibility to do a remake of Super Speed Race V/GP V using your project? making a tool to replacing the sprites, making a port yourself or making the project open source? I'm a programmer as well but not as experienced as you, and always has been tricked me to someday making a videogame, or some kind of port or hack. I heard a lot of good things about Allegro, and i'm very interested in your project because i'm a Java/J2EE kind of thing developer, and I think I could do it with Allegro/C++. I'm aware that there's is an only version of SSR that does have CPU and it's partially emulated by MAME (that one with TAITO Z80 based hardware) but with no sound and with awful controls, the versions that i'm interested on is SSR V and SSR GP V, transistors based, just like Monaco GP.

I would love to contribute to preserve this classics, that otherwise would die.
