Can´t find the pic of it, so you have to trust me.... (and i´m not good at it..)
I´m sure this is a game a lot of people have....

27,343,550

R,L,R,R - D

Maybe we could have a table for each destination, make it more interesting and encourage playing different stages... each route would probably be overkill :)

That's Jon MooMooTown's score at the top... he can get loads more than that but might as well have that in there too.

I have been Scouting around for a while now and cannot find anymore information about the
Twin Galaxies World Record for Outrun.

Was this ever confirmed at all with evidence?

The Score vs Time scoring system makes it hard to work out if its possible and with the 
different Dip settings that may be used, how much could it change it the High Score?

My Latest OutRun High Score Board.

Catching John Beresford Up. But some way off the W/R.

Done on my Standard Upright Cab with Correct Dip Switch Settings.
Time Adjustment = Normal
Number of Enemy = Normal

Going Sub 4.49 is going to be a Good Run.

Always surprised that a game that is so popular as Outrun and that lends itself so well to highscores does not have more of a 'running' scene.

With more Local Arcades popping up with online High Score Boards hopefully more will get interested.

I've never been much of a high score achiever on video games, but I'm not bad at OutRun Wink

I think my best is a tad over 35 million, but no photo proof, so here's my best with evidence on my original upright cab - all normal settings.




Didn't have the enhanced romset back then, so this was the first run of the day LOL

BTW the huge scores were achieved with the gear-gacha technique, which I personally don't count as genuine high scores.  I know there is a certain skill to getting it right, but I see it as exploiting a glitch in the code and removes the need for the skill of actually staying on the road and mastering the genius that is OutRun.

My best so far is a 4:52 which was done over at Neon Knights on their Outrun cab. Have yet to beat this on my own machine though.

Great to see some good times going up, on a long overlooked High Score Board.

Lets get up as many members times as possible.

What is the gear-gacha technique?
I have seen something that looks like that on MAME High Scores on YouTube,
but what a waste of time that is!

You try going on the grass on a real cab!!!

Just to Clarify that some Pretty Fast High Scores on OutRun are Possible without
any form of Cheating in any way.

This is John Beresford at Arcade Club on a DLX without any need to Cheat in any way.

I think anyone using this Gear Gatcha Cheat is only Cheating Themselves.
Also the Massive difference in Time Vs Score would show up I would say anyway.

Lets see some more Great Times Posted here.

Lots of you have them, so lets enjoy them.

We all need to get the time we wanted to back in 1986!!!    Smile

Good idea, I might have to do the same once I start getting back in the groove. 

I love on the video how you do a pristine run, and then within about 3 seconds of the computer taking over, it's rammed a car and stuck you on the grass...! Self driving car technology from 1986 LOL

I believe Ferrari did permit Tesla to use a one off convertible Testarossa in some very early experiments. In fact it still holds the record for longest journey by an autonomous vehicle. 35 foot into a palm tree. Back to the drawing board Elon.

I'll need to get some serious time on my machine to get close to that run. This must be one of the fastest times and highest scores that's been recorded, surely?

Jeez! I thought I was quite good at OutRun and assumed scores like that were done with the gear exploit. Not sure my best score off hand but nowhere near that.

I agree, I've seen videos of people doing it and it just doesn't look fun to me. I've no desire to even try it.

As soon as i found out about this Gear Gatcher Cheat I started recording my runs, 
as its going to be the first thing someone says. And I do not blame them.

What with MAME runs and using this type of cheat, then it can be the only way to prove it.

I, like a lot of others here also enjoying playing live at Arcades. 

Then any such cheating would be seen anyway.

Get some of the guys in the cheating videos to try a run without it and then see their scores.

To Cheat someone else, First you have to Cheat yourself!

Thanks Guys.    Big smile

Might be nice to have scores by ending route - all the above are using the highest scoring route of R,L,R,R
Outrun 2 fixes this by having leaderboards by ending (A, B, C, D or E)

It’s a shame really as nobody really plays any other stages due to the optimal route being unbeatable as it’s the fastest route through

Give it a few days, you will pass that as well.

Do you remember when going sub 5.00 mins sounded impossible?

OutRun forever!!!

I just noticed everyone is doing this. I always thought the 'easiest' route was right at every junction...maybe that is true but not the quickest.

I shall see what I can do using this route...

Nice scores gents.  I have just started playing it again now I've finished my upright restore.

Currently got up to 36m....   Eddy I'm gonna analyse your videos in detail lol.

Currently I'm just trying to figure out how to avoid the traffic.  Seems that sometimes the cars/trucks are just in the place you need to be to keep going at top speed. Grr. LOL

Any specific tips or tricks for Outrun other than lots of practice and memorising the courses? I noticed in neoretro's last vid that you hug the sides of the road a lot.


Posted By: sosfx
Date Posted: 29 Jun 2020 at 11:06pm
The best tips I can give are the following
Get the car up to 293 as fast as you can, if the road bends, turn. 
Oh and don't crash!
Do this and and you will get some good scores Thumbs Up

He is indeed one quick chap!

And the reason that I kept pushing to catch him up.

As far as I am aware Mr Beresford and I are the only UK players to get into the 49,000,000s
in our pursuit of the magic 50 million.

As you will see from NeoRetro's Neon Knights High Score Board, posted above,
my good friend MaxRom is also one of the Fastest Outrunners. 
Only a matter of time before he breaks the 49,000,000 as well.

My best advise is to make sure your settings are correct, Normal Time/Normal Traffic
and learn the roads as much as you can. 
It is possible to control the traffic a little, but only if you are on a fast run.



I have not really been playing OutRun since late last year, for one reason or another.
Most of my Games have been on Pole Position, chasing the top guys there.

Perhaps it's time to see if the old Ferrari will start up again, after that amount of time. LOL

Top Driving James.

Just a quick piece of advice, video your runs and show your settings at the
end of your fast runs.

As soon as you get down below the 4.50s people just assume you are using the
easy settings or the gear gatcha and fast pull off the line tricks.

It will really pee you off when you get that fast and everyone just says you are cheating!

Keep up the Good Work.
