Nice, you know when you get this done, if the engine is fast enough you'll have to make a Super Mario Kart port also. :P

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

That was in the original plan, yes. Though, I could probably add it in anytime I want to in the development process, even at the end if I need to.

just make sure that unlike in Lotus Turbo challenge, it scrolls when turning though.

That was one of my favorite things about the 68k FZero, it made it feel like you were going faster because when you turned, your eyes had something to judge the speed of the turn against.

This looks like the best mode7 game out there for the Z80 series, keep up the good work calc84maniac!

yeah true, it made the maps look smaller tho to be honest. I would prefer about half the 68k f-zero speed, so tracks takes a bit longer to finish

actually in F-zero 68k the first cup is not that short, but the two others was much shorter. I prefered playing the first one mostly due to the track quality

this is the only mode 7 game still in the works right now for z80. If it comes out it will be the first to be ever released on the z80 line of calcs. F-Zero 68k was the first 68k mode 7 game ever finished completly

Hmm well I remember there was a mario kart in the works at some point but I guess you're right there aren't many out there for sure. Either way with any luck there will be more in the future, and when there are I foresee this one still standing out.

Well, I've been trying to work on this a bit more. For starters, I've been commenting and documenting my code, which is a very important thing I have neglected. I've also been reorganizing my sprites.

The next thing on the agenda is upgrading the 3D engine to a significantly faster method. I just hope I'll get around to it. :P
