Heh... it's a shame people think like that.   I can't think of anything more boring than using some cheat or gimmick to play the game.

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.

Well played Eddie, great scoring, but I'm on your tail! :D

Love this game!!

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

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

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.

No pic, but the highest I've ever achieved is just over 39m, will start playing again when I get the monitor chassis back LOL

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my sanity the most.

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

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...

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

A good night yesterday at Neon Knights arcade. I lost my first place standing on the Daytona leaderboard, but I increased my lead on Outrun with a 48.7m score Smile

New personal best obtained over at the great Neon Knights arcade in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. 4m50s and 46.4 million. Still have some way to go to challenge the best players, but I'm slowly getting there.

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

I managed a new personal best yesterday on my cab - 4m51s and 45.1 million. Just a couple more seconds to loose to challenge for the top spot!
