Initial release, for the Klassix re-release.
Support for two other versions of the game. One is a completely
different version, the other is just a second version of the
Klassix re-release with a different bootblock.
Support for another two versions.
Timer fixed. The counting speed depends on the frame rate.
CUSTOM tooltypes introduced to control maximum frame rate and
timer speed. (Look below)
Different versions of OutRun:
Currently there are 5 versions supported. Up to now I can
devide these two versions into two main versions which show
major differences between each other.
First there are the old releases which have a picture while
loading showing "© 1987", then there are the newer releases
showing "© 1988" while loading.
The "© 1988" version has several advantages to the others:
1. Loading screen with moving starfield, not just a picture.
2. While demo, the game looks a lot more like the arcade
showing the "true" OutRun logo and (obsolete) stuff like
"1 CREDIT" etc.
3. Easier playing since the timer is not so close anymore.
4. Absolutely different disk layout. The older versions were
in an Amiga-like format. The new one has a completely
independent track format.
5. Disk protection.
6. Different keyword for the cheatmode.
7. The debug output is not disabled and can be accessed via
The CUSTOM1 tooltype controls the frames per renderstep.
CUSTOM1 may vary from 1 to 8, while 1 is 50 FPS and 8 is 6.25 FPS.
To calculate the FPS-rate, use following formulas:
For A500 speed, use "CUSTOM1=7" on PAL and "CUSTOM1=8" on NTSC.
The CUSTOM2 tooltype affects the counter directly. Since the
counting speed was decreased in later versions of OutRun, I
offer you this tooltype to decide what counter speed you
would like to have.
Only three values are allowed for CUSTOM2:
CUSTOM2=0 Default (will set CUSTOM2 to either 4 or 5,
depending on your OutRun version).
CUSTOM2=4 Fast timer, like in the early versions of OutRun.
CUSTOM2=5 Slow timer, like in the later versions of OutRun.

a newer version of this install from
