That's the good stuff. I have recorded last year's Goodwood festival and that was poo. It was just cars doing
demo runs along the circuit while I was hoping for these race type things. Man was I disappointed after 3 days
of recording to have mostly boring stuff on disk. I deleted everything. Now I'll try this, currently racing 30's Alfas
and Bugattis and whatnot.
Thank you for the note and the link! Currently the 250 "Breadvan" is chasing an E-Type brilliant to see these
cars actually being driven as intended.
Of all the programming languages I have learned (and forgotten) assembler ranks #1 in terms of potential
speed but also #1 in terms of difficulty, especially for logic. So absolute kudos to you, Lee, for doing the
patches in assembler.
Back in the day when I was still involved in the (computer) demo scene on PC (mid to late 1990s) we used
to do the logic with C or some other high level language and the actual pixel output via assembler inserts
within routines... Mode 13h, ah memories from a long distant part of my um youth I suppose
thanks for that post. It reminded me that Reims is still a place I want to visit. I want to take in the scenery, even if
today most of the old track has been replaced. Every bleeding time I go to or return from Le Mans I think to myself
"just add a day to your trip and go see Reims". And then I remember that, as usual, I didn't get either the pre-race
Friday nor the post-race Monday off of work. So with that in mind, every time when the checkered flag is dropped
at 3 pm, I head for my car (parked a hundred meters up from the Carrefour Le Mans Roncerai, Rue de la Laigne
pointed homewards already) and start the 852 km trip back and realize - I don't have the time . Maybe next year
will be different as I've already requested the Friday and Monday off.
Reims is the track where I won my first race against the AI in GPL (in a '69 I believe) and next to Laguna Seca it
was the first mods I did for GPL. I only started working on cars much later. I think you will find my first few posts
about modding from 2006 or thereabouts here. Should be about Laguna Seca.
