has this feature and is incomatiple at resolutions higher than 800x600 when running a GeForce card, screen just goes black. Probably why i haven't tried this program at a higher res. I must admit Scalextric doesn't update there programs, no patches for bugs and they have since dropped support for RMS
This program, the stand alone track designer does work pretty good but I have found some flaws, such as creating a track, printing it, changing the track and re-printing. I will print the original track, not as modified, until you actually save the file, close it and re-load the file. I found this out over the weekend. Was driving me crazy to see the layout on screen and seeing a different layout coming out of the printer.
One thing this program allows that RMS
didn't is the aiblity to delete a section in the middle of the track and insert pieces at any point. Much better than deleting track section back to the point that a person wanted to change.
I have however got to the point where the track gets seperate from the power base and there is no way to connect it back to the power base without starting over.
The virtual test drive is a nice feature. Landscaping is nice as well, my layouts never look that nice once assembled on the floor.
With the few shortcomings that this and RMS
have, I'd be hard pressed to buy Sport World, should it actually get released in the US. I cannot imagine that the program would work consistently and with Scalextric track record for dropping support and not putting out bug fixes, I'd find that very disappointing for such a neat idea.
Dare I mention Slotforum.com, but if you look at the activity in the Sport World section, it sure doesn't look promising, not much activity there versus the Scalextric digital forum.
