We are still planning to release Burn Rubber! to MSX too, but have no concrete plans on how that will be done. It's actually the final name of the wip that was playable in Helsinki (and Bussum).


Oh, and there is some more new stuff on the site; the Lotus F3 rom is updated to include a jukebox mode, and also supports saving your highscores and ghost tracks to disk (and loading them again ofcourse).

For the gamereader there is also a new tool that allows writing ESE cartridges that wasn't released in public until now either.

I like the website a lot. Simple layout, easy to navigate and everything is there. Too bad I'm juuuuust outside the target audience for peek-a-boo. Wink

Great site, except (but that's a personal thing, maybe), the fixed width layout Tongue (And it's a tad slow...)

And I do hope that you will release all that Coleco stuff on MSX as well, indeed Smile

As Vincent said, we're hoping to release Burn Rubber! on MSX as well, but we haven't figured out the details yet. Its running just fine on MSX though, and has been previewed on the MSX Info Update party and the ALT party as well as in Bussum. The Pyramid Warp cartridge is really just a port of two MSX games to ColecoVision with a nice menu page and minor improvements to the audio. So its not that much to port back to MSX I think. We have some other ColecoVision stuff in the pipe but it may not be that interesting for the MSX scene.

The peek-a-boo game is btw submitted to msxdev now, so it should show up soon with downloads and everything Smile

Very nice page... excellent quality, as all your releases!
Burn Rubber! looks VERY nice! Can't wait to see it on MSX! I already love Lotus F3 (and my girlfriend too!)

Burn Rubber! drives a lot better than Lotus F3. We implemented a new physics engine from scratch that is fully vector based. So collisions, inertia feels more real. We also did a lot of work on the gfx and with some help from pixelboy (a Coleco artist) we got much nicer car animations. The new game also have a battle mode which is really fun at fairs and meetings where two people race against each other, similar to Micro Machines.

dvik: you really did make one of my MSX dreams come true with Burn Rubber! Smile Although I'd never expected it to be for MSX1!
