    Nah, mame does the weird thing with 2 screens in one session with outrunners and I petty much gave up straight away.
    Got some Daytona & Sega Rally on instead. Definitely need more wheels :)

    been watching too much OutRun, Joel Hopkins aka Last Gamer did an excellent refurb of an OutRun deluxe cab. A great look at the machine inside and out. Still wondering why he didn't shoot a part 3 but you get the gist of what goes into the beast.

    Just wanted to quickly add a few modern retro-inspired games that can all thank Outrun (and later games like Lotus Esprit Turbo and Top Gear) for their inspiration.

    80s Overdrive (3DS exclusive - I have this one, lots of fun)



    Horizon Chase Turbo:



    Slipstream:

    Thanks Elvis.
    Slipstream has a few ridge racer inspired looks too

    Im not into collectables at all, but shit, that's my favourite Ferrari and one of my fav games. Id put one of them up on display in my home no worries.

    Edit - and if it played MSS I'd have that on repeat :D

    So, it's taken a while, but I finally got there ....
    I probably spent the equivalent of $150 in credits ....

    :D

    Nice work! Yep if I was paying per credit I'd be broke too!

    I bought that slipstream game on GOG. Dang thing won't let me set custom controls so I can't use my preferred controller -10 stars for that little omission.
