i am already enjoying the md version, but the arcade version would be much cooler as that is the one i (and i guess many more) def remember the best!

I agree :)

Dip Switch settings must be at default for the achievements and leaderboards to function. If you run into any issues, please let me know. Like Glue and Speed Demon both make use of the "Trigger" flag, so you know whether you have failed or not. Have fun. :)

teddy westside at it again with more arcade achievements. thanks man, the arcade was really neglected
Kingsombra 15 Dec 2021 14:10
ph hell yeah. One of my favorite Arcade racing games. Thanks so much for this.

Leaderboards doesn't seem to work? I have leaderboard active and I've completed both Goal A and D and my scores aren't appearing on the RA leaderboards for OutRun
5pectre 25 Dec 2021 21:05
Thats strange. My score for Goal B got accepted to the leaderboard? It was when I went for the "like glue" achievement, so it seems like if you go off track your score isn't recorded?
5pectre 25 Dec 2021 21:05
MASTERED!! Like Glue and Speed Demon were fun and challenging to get
TeddyWestside 26 Dec 2021 00:24
Sorry, the leaderboards should be fixed now.

wow any tips for the 25m score? i just completed d route and got lil over 10m, so quite some ways off!
5pectre 2 Jan 2022 20:59
go faster. If you finished the game with 10 million I'd say you had 1 second left on the clock. Goal D is your best bet as that route gives you the most time. You get 1 million per second at the end, so you need around 15 seconds on the clock to break 25 million
S4g4tNL 7 Jan 2022 08:57
Ah good to hear thanks, already got 19M the other day :) (E route i believe)
alyxhawk 19 Sep 2022 22:52
Going at max speed is not enough to get 25M score. You should choose the shortest routes to maximize time left at the end of the course. Take note:

Easiest route is all lefts. Next easiest is all rights, although stage 4 on that one can give you fits.

Hardest route I can't recall but I think it is right, left, left, left.

The highest scoring route is right, left, right, right. This route is the shortest, leaving the most time on the clock, which at a million points bonus per second at the end gives you the highest score.

I really hope in future the Euro/Japanese rom gets added, as that's a different course layout, and the one we're used to here.

@alyxhawk Cheers! will def give this a go, 3 cheevo's left and this game deserves to be mastered!
