ST game logic bug:
1. The car accelerates slowly past 193km/h in low gear. Being in low gear should prevent the car accelerating past 193km/h.
2. In the arcade version acceleration is slower below 193km/h in high gear.
I also think the blitter would be best used for the road drawing if possible.
How much processor time does the music take?
David Whittaker\Jas C Brooke replay routine usually takes approximately 7% CPU time.

Someone converted the car to 8 colours for an Amiga port that was never completed. Remapping the palette may be challenging.
I have attached the only picture I have of that.
It seems the driver and the lady in the car are sprites that are layered on top.

swapd0 wrote:I did a frame counter many years ago like this way:
- you have an array of "booleans" with 50 elements all set to false
- on each vbl you increment the index into the array and clear his value
- each time you finish a frame mark the array[index] as true
- count how many true values you have into the array and that's the fps.
