How to Play
1. Load the main Rally Speedway game disk/ATR.
2. Switch disks; for emulator users load the Trax disk/ATR using the [file] menu's [attach disk] option.
3. Use the joystick on Rally Speedway's menu to choose "load trax", "diskette", "fer sure" then pick track 1-17
May I suggest selecting "Make Trax" so you can see if your playing the right one, each trax has a number crafted in as an identifier. Press Start to return to the menu.
4. Choose "Start the Race" to play the selected track.
Don't forget to reset fastest lap time when you load a new track, makes life easier on keeping an eye on lap times. Press Start[F2] to return to the menu. [Space] is pause

Help If you need any, just post or send me a message - Note: Track 2 and 4 are the originals that come with the game :)

 

[update] You will find the more you play the better the game gets. Tracks 1 and 2 are the hardest so try some of the more open ones (less things close to the bends) these are more fun - go for track 13 to start with. If you click on "Make Trax" after loading each one you can have a quick look at it first, then press Start to return to the menu.

 

Note: Pressing Select changes the steering to 8 directional (score bar colour changes)

Try for the fastest lap on each track. on wet, real life, *60mph,slow acceleration (default settings) * players can select 40mph to make it easier but your time may be slower!
 
Bonus points

"Track 18" : ICE Trucker Challenge: the fastest player on Track #17: INDY 500 (ICY REAL 100 FAST AC)

Two player Challenge: just getting someone to play with you - Rally Speedway is a superb 2 player game.

 

Round closes

Sunday 19th 10PM UK time to give a little more time.

Played track 1 for 10 mins

 

Best time 1.12.5. Then got a 0.46.6! There seems to be a bug. I think if you crash in a certain place it might replace your car on the wrong part of the track sometimes

^^ Yes, while designing some of the tracks, I learned that one must avoid putting lanes too close to eachother, or otherwise the game might misplace your car on the wrong lane, despite using the direction marker properly.

Your right, it will almost be certainly be a track piece with a wrong direction code attached or adjacent track to close together.

However, I suggest dont crash ;) Just put it down to racing.

It would nice to to correct any track as we go along. If you could do a screen grab of the track from editor and mark where the problem is, would be grand.

Looking at track 1 the top candidate is the loop below the "4". I could tweek, but at the end of the round.

All I can say is if you have crashed and you start elsewhere and get a quick lap, it will almost be certainly a wrong lap time. The true lap times are complete lap without a crash and staying on the black stuff.

I sure there are tracks where corners(half the track) can be cut massively, but hopefully the pars will identify these.

Thats a shame :(. Its a really fun game and I/we was expecting some really challenging laps times from you to tussle with.

At least try the Indy500 on the hardest settings :)

A few months ago I prepared a list of my 10 most hated games and Rally Speedway was on the 5th place. No matter how hard I try, I can't figure out how to handle the car in this game so it usually looks like that:

"GOING FORWARD, GOING FORWARD... OH MY GOD I NEED TO TURN LEFT... <BOOM>, OH MY GOD I NEED TO TURN RIGHT... <BOOM>...<BOOM>... RAGE QUIT." :)

 

So my lap times would be like:

Track 1: 99:99:99 (player gave up)

Track 2: 99:99:99 (rage quit)

Yeah it hopefully should be obvious to the player if they don't complete the whole circuit. Not knowing the track, it took me a couple of seconds to realise what had happened!

Dope and others - you can always play at 40mph that way you can avoid crashing, it's not the best game for one player as it's hard to react to the bends but having some other players' times should make it fun enough. The game is great for 2 players, I guess they didn't think to alter the 1 player dynamics to make the car steer better. I'm hoping my old Atari friend is coming to stay next week so will be hitting the 2 player game :)

 

Yes Track 12 has issues with the car not getting positioned correctly - perhaps you guys can update any you see with issues or we can drop these ones. PLAYERS PLEASE REPORT ANY FAULTS AND TRY AND TURN YOUR CAR ROUND IF NECESSARY AND FOLLOW THE CIRCUITS AS INTENDED!!!

 

ok my first batch of times:

1 - 0:45:4 maybe this was a crash bug time?

2 - 1:50:1

3 - 0:14:6

4 - 1:19:3

5 - 0:49:6

6 - 0:35:0

7 - 0:32:4

8 - 0:46:1

9 - 0:56:9

10 - 1:18:7

11 - 0:06:1 - anyone wanting a quick go pick out some of the short circuits!

12 - 1:57:8 - check direction after crashing

13 - 1:28:8

14 - 1:07:8

15 - 1:08:4

16 - 0:34:4

17 - 0:31:8

 

We'll see about the team race format probably use the same posted lap times for this.

 

Current Standings Updated (after Round 3)

Making a note if you use this option.

:thumbsup: Yes this way you do not crash and are just slowed down in different degrees by the obstacles. We'll play things by ear and I'll do some tables when we have a few more times - If players can list *all* their times each time they post in a similar format it will help me out :) :)

Everyone You will find the more you play the better the game gets. Tracks 1 and 2 are the hardest so try some of the more open ones (less things close to the bends) these are more fun - go for track 13 to start with. If you click on MAKE TRAX after loading each one you can have a quick look at it first, then press Start to return to the menu.

 

Note: Pressing Select changes the steering to 8 directional (score bar colour changes)

 

-------------------------

 

I'm enjoying beating my own times, though this will get harder as time goes on...

1*- 1:12:1

No. 12 is RedThunder's interpretation of the Nürburgring. I think in real life that one is infamous for rich brats going there with their expensive sports cars, just to crash into the trees or wall on the fourth bend.
