SEGA OUTRUN (ARCADE) Remake

These were two of my favourite add ons I had for my Spectrum 48k  

Multiface One (Romantic Robot)
WafaDrive (Rotronics)

My mate had a 'Video Face', think that was Romantic Robot as well, he could grab digitized video stills from a video source and print them to his thermal printer
 

Hi , i had a multiface 3 ,  not sure how it ran on a 48k . On a +3 the multiface gave you the power of god (almost) , save any game , at any point , straight to disc !!! . Using the instant save and load from save point option , i took IK+ to an insane level :) ,  the multiface was essential , i recall goading my mum to buy me a 45 quid multiface , i will tidy my room everyday , wash up everyday , soooooo many broken promises , WORTH IT :)

Yeah brilliant stuff.   Me my mate used to hack around with Match Day II, we had it so the ball could go crazy high.  The players didn't know what to do.   Some fun times.   Like you say, instant save, we used to save to the amazing Wafadrive.   What a brilliant bit of kit that was.   I think you could get 64k ones and I'm pretty sure 128kb ones too.    Amazing times being a teenager in the 80's, really was.

I remember in 1988 getting a 1541C for my Commodore 64, I was buzzing.   It was pretty boring compared to the Wafadrive and the Multiface One combo.  Essential bit of kit for any Spectrum user.

Hi all,

found this a while back and if you're anything like me who is someone who got into video games way back when Taito and or Midway released Space invaders then you might like this :D

 just thought I'd let you all know, if you don't already, of a pretty cool Outrun remake or enhanced version called

CannonBall - The Enhanced OutRun Engine

and for those of you who even fancy creating your own tracks there's also a program called Layout

here are the links :-

https://github.com/djyt/cannonball/wiki/Cannonball-Manual

now i can't provide the roms needed for obvious reasons but I'm sure you would be able to find them.

I think it's the usual press 5 for credit, 1 for start etc your typical mame affair oh and a neat feature now incorporated is to change the view to a slightly higher vantage point by pressing left shift. Anyway it's all explained what you have to do on the websites above.

The Expert cartridge was updated to the Action Replay I believe, or at least both were from a company called 'Trilogic'.
