How To Play
On the first screen click the Choose A Circuit button or press the Space Bar to continue. There is also a Help button for this help page and a Quit button to exit the program. The first letter of many of the buttons in this program is underlined which means that you can press that key on your keyboard as a short cut to clicking the button with the mouse.
Choose/Make Your Circuit Screen
Here you will see a grid of 100 squares on the left and a control panel on the right. The top drop down box in the control panel contains a list of all the saved track layouts. Drop this down to choose a saved track and it will be loaded into the grid on the left, plus the name of the track layout will appear in the yellow box on the right. To edit or create your own track, click on any square on the left hand side and a red highlight will appear. Then click on any track piece in the track box on the right and it will appear in that box on the left. Do this all over the grid to create your own track circuit. The start/finish position will always remain on the far left and cannot be changed. To save your circuit make sure you have typed a name for it in the yellow text box on the right, then click the Save Circuit button. Clicking the Reset To Blank Circuit button will clear the whole grid back to one of grass/scrub squares. When you have chosen or edited your track, click the Next Stage - Choose A Car button to choose your car to race on the track.
Choose A Car Screen
Use the Left and Right arrow buttons or the Left and Right arrow keys on your keyboard to scroll through the cars available. The game comes with 13 cars but I have made the game so that other ones may be added in the future by downloading an add cars patch, but only if there is sufficient interest. When the car you want is displayed, click the Play button or press the Space Bar to continue.
On this screen your chosen car will appear just under the start line. You can move your car using the arrow keys on your keyboard. Press the Up arrow to move forwards. Keeping the Up arrow key pressed, press the Left arrow key to move left and the Right arrow key to move right. Pressing the Down arrow key will allow you to move slowly backwards (see below in Player Controls for joystick/joypad options). Using these keys, move around the track trying to avoid any trees or rocks and the red and white edge barriers. The idea is to race around the track in as fast a time as possible. Your time is recorded in yellow at the bottom of the screen on your "dashboard". The track is divided into sectors and this is also shown on your dashboard in blue. Each sector of track you cross, adds 1 to this figure. If you go on the scrub land and miss out any sections of track then these will be added as 2 second time penalties at the end. At the end of your timed run a total time figure will appear in green. This total time is calculated by adding your circuit time in yellow to the number of track sectors missed in blue times 2 seconds each. For example, if your track has 75 sectors and you cross the finish line having covered only 65 in a time of 40 seconds then your time of 40 seconds will have 10 penalty sectors added, which at 2 seconds for each one means an added 20 seconds. Your total time would therefore be 60 seconds.
You will also notice three engine type buttons. These are Standard, GTi and Turbo. Try each of these to see which is a comfortable speed for you. There are no penalties for choosing different engines for your car. Once you have done a timed run you can continue practising. Click the Re-start Timed Run button at any time to have another go at a timed run. When you have a fast time then click the League Table button to be added to the fastest times league board for this track. Every track has it's own league table.
If you slide out over the barriers you will get a screen that allows you to go back and start again on the track.
League Table Screen
Every track has it's own league table and it will be loaded automatically when you enter this screen. If you have a fast time for this track then your time will appear in the text above the table and the Click To Add Your Time button will be highlighted. To add your time to the table, simply click this button and a text box will appear. Type in your name and click OK to add yourself to the table. Clicking Reset League Table will clear all the scores. As this cannot be undone, a warning will appear when you click this button.
