Two racing games I look for [Solved]

Post by synonym9 » October 9th, 2012, 6:49 am

Guys, please what is the name of the racing game where the entire enviroment is a real video, a film of racettack?

The second game is an offroad car racing game in a dessert. It got hills to jump, if you run the hill sideways you flip 360 and land on the wheels again.

Grateful for any help

The racing game with real video.....maybe you're thinking of GP World. This was a laserdisc game. I am not sure that it runs in MAME but there is another emulator made specifically for these laserdisc games. This game works well with that emulator.

Here is a video of GP World:







Not sure about your second game though. Can you think of any other details?

I don't think any Laser Disc games can be played on MAME. You would need the emulator Daphne most likely and then the files from the laser disc to play that one again.

Not really, I think it was a Buggy running through the dessert, otherwise it had a steeringwheel and was from the 80' I think....

Actually Thulsa yes there are a few that work in MAME. I have seen videos of these working in MAME however, I have not tried myself since I'm already all set up there with Daphne.

Have a look at this site: http://www.mameitalia.net/index.php?showtopic=11337 I don't speek Italian but Bing translator works well...

I think the other game that you're looking for is Buggy Challenge.

Edit: No reply from the OP about the second game, but it seems to fit the bill.
