0.37b12 [Ernesto Corvi, Phil Stroffolino]


TODO:

- PC3259 handling (for collision detection) is not accurate. Collision detection does work, but there are bits which define the type of collision (and determine whether a pit stop is required) that I don't know how to handle.

- Sound: missing engine noise

- "radar" is probably wrong

- LED and tachometer display are missing/faked. Note that a dipswitch setting allows score to be displayed onscreen, but there's no equivalent for tachometer.


NOTES:

- The object of the game is to avoid the opposing cars.

- The player has to drive through Dark Tunnels, Rain, Lightning, Sleet, Snow, and a Track that suddenly divides to get to the Finish Line first.

- "GRAND CHAMPION" has a Radar Feature which enables the Player to see his position relative to the other cars.

- A Rank Feature is also provided which shows the Player's numerical rank all through the race.

- The Speech Feature enhances the game play.


WIP:

- 6th June 2000: Phil Stroffolino sent yet another Grand Champion update with graphics fixes and preliminary collision detection working.

- 1st June 2000: Phil Stroffolino sent in an update for Grand Champion, fixing graphics and other stuff.

- 24th May 2000: Phil Stroffolino sent in a very preliminary work-in-progress driver for Grand Champion.
