Unregistered user A few in there that I've not played for years, and one or two I've never even heard of (Mosquito Fire?). Still just StrongARM, though, but I'm guessing that if they at least run on an SA and RO4 then Aemulor shouldn't have too much trouble. If it does then there's still the RiscPC and a bit of cable juggling.

Unregistered user only with Spitfire Fury and there is a patch on the APDL website, everything else is fine.

Unregistered user I also remember playing two player chocks away for hours with my mate on the old joy pads. The game was well ahead of its time.

Also Saloon cars, many hours playing on my own. Upgrading from the Astra GTE to the M3 and finally to a Sierra Cosworth to become the ultimate best. Again well ahead of its day.
