Background graphics on my machine are all broken.

It looks a bit strange because we have tested in many computers and all of them it worked correctly. You have to know that the game only works on windows with 64-byte architecture and in Mac and Linux using Wine. The architecture of the system could be the problem or perhaps the OpenGL version installed in your computer.

My OS is a 64-bit one. How to find out the installed OpenGL version ? Wouldn´t a check in the game be a good idea?

Well, you will probably have an app installed in your computer to control the graphic card on your computer. Find that program or you can try to install OpenGL Extensions Viewer. It is an app that i know.  Check the opengl version in C++ could be an idea to solve these kind of problems. Concretly,  I use the OpenGL 6.14.10.13440 version.

A promising start, but needs work. Most notably the course selection at the end of each section. Also the ripped car sprites need to be reworked to be of equal resolution to the scenery. This could be come quite polished and I like the new levels. The car handles well and the acceleration and braking  are smooth. The game sometimes freezes for 5 to 10 seconds while driving. 3 out of 5. I would consider this 3rd best or the outruns (Arcade / Mame being number 1, sega Mega drive version being 2, and this being 3. Its fair to say, that it is better than the Amiga and Atari ST versions.

Thank you for your objective evaluations and criticisms. It's always nice to have people appreciate your work. We will try to improve those aspects you comment on.

any chance of saving the settings in a configuration

It sounds interesting. Just for curiosity, in which settings were you thinking about when you posted the comment? We are interested in your ideas. By the way, I'm sorry I answered so late.

never mind, found it by selecting left from the lowest resolution

Any chance of a full screen option?

Any chance of split screen multiplayer?

My partner and I have contemplated that possibility. But, first of all we decided to publish this first version to see how was accepted by the community. In future versions, multiplayer mode probably will be available.
