Howard_Casto:
Eh... I'm still having trouble with my head and I'm getting too old for hype so...


Read Here:  http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,139396.0.html

If it sounds interesting then download here:  http://dragonking.arcadecontrols.com/index.php

Note that if you browse the "about checkered flag" section, you'll find a link to the image packs towards the bottom.  It would have made the exe too cumbersome to include them in the package. 

Anyway I haven't had much sleep, but aside from a random issue or two everything should be working fine, so enjoy. 

POOTERMAN:
Wanted to be the first to thank you Howard for making this FE - downloading now and will report back soon shouting about how wonderful it is no doubt :)

Malenko:
cool.  The name though...... Checkered Flag was an actual arcade game, why not call it Checkered Past since I dismantled my racing rig of the same name? :)

Howard_Casto:
No real reason.  Mostly because when I was looking for inspiration for the default skin I could google image search for "racing theme" and one of the google suggestions was always "checkered flag".  Since I actually ended up using a checker board pattern, I thought "Eh.... that'll do". 

It'll get even more confusing when I make some of the racing options...well...optional and release the Pac-FE version. 

POOTERMAN:
Howard, just spent the past hour making snaps for the missing/blank/bad images so will post a link here when I'm done to save others the time.

Just wanted to ask if are you able to make the in-game videos available as a pack that we can download from your website too?

"Chequered Flag" was the first game I played on the ZX Spectrum home computer way back in 1982!

Do the folks stateside write it as Checkered instead (o̶f̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶c̶o̶r̶r̶e̶c̶t̶ ̶q̶u̶e̶e̶n̶s̶ ̶e̶n̶g̶l̶i̶s̶h̶) of "Chequered" in the context of a racing flag out of interest? ;)
