    I tried the aforementioned portable version from archive.org, which is packaged to run on a modern PC. I had some issues with that, so I've grabbed a Model 2 emu instead.

    I'm also going to pick up the original PC CD, because I really want to run it on the Win98 box with my new wheel - when I sort a GPU out.

    I'll probably have a crack at the sega rally challenge but I'm sure power is gonna be some tough competition.

    Leaning towards PS2 version for the same convenience reasons elvis mentioned. I could play the saturn version on the cabinet with arcade stick :sick:

    What do you guy's wanna do next month which is looming?

    I was thinking maybe need for speed porsche as it has a demo which should be easy for most to access.

    I still never got a time out on sega rally... WEAK!

    Fingers crossed I get a lap in this weekend. Need to clean the games room first, as it's a mess. :(

    Something on a single platform with a single version would be neat. :thumbup:

    I played a shitload of NFSU on Sunday with G920. the game doesn't have feedback but the G920 can be set to 'spring' back to center like an old wheel in the logitech software.

    so much fun!
    Probably gonna work my way through NFSU, NFSU2, NFSMW over the next few weeks.

    Doesn't have to be this coming month (or ever, because I probably won't have time for the next 3 months), but I do get a kick out of early Burnout games.

    Virtua Racing and Outrun definitely need a turn (yes Sega make all the best racing games, not even sorry).

    alternatively we try something a bit more obscure like Outrun Europa or Power Drift.

    all Sega, all the time baby!

    On top of my regular work, I'm helping a bunch of places with remote access and work-from-home solutions.

    Every time there's a crisis, my work goes up. Whether that crisis is a virus, a flood, or people not planning their shit. Keeps me way too busy, working myself to death.

    Bah!
    Stupid NFS Demo doesn't seem to work on Win 10. I'm sure I've played it before...
    It gets into the game but crashes back to windows when you start the race.
    I'll give the full version a go.
