    I quickly ported CannonBall - the enhanced Outrun Engine to the Switch. I'll plan on finishing it (add sound, controlls etc) soon and release it.

    Can't post links of a video/pic but check my twitter @ModernVintageG . I was also known as lantus back in the Xbox/Xbox 360 scene :)

    more to come!

    Edit: first release out ! - http://github.com/lantus/cannonball-nx/releases

    If you are indeed the lantus360 that I rememeber, then the work you did back in the 360 days was absolutely incredible.

    I loved the emulators you released years ago on the Xbox Classic, their still getting some use on my Xbox! :)

    As it happens i'd randomly subscribed to your Modern Vintage Gamer YouTube channel a few months ago, then found out your lantus from the Xbox Scene as I watched though some of your other videos.

    thanks for the kind words!

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    its an engine thats been written for it. there are differences such as widescreen support, custom music, you can tweak the number of cars on the track etc, high score saves , different game modes etc

    i ported it over mainly as a proof of concept to see whats involved, but its good enough to release :)

    Just wanted to second this and say thanks for that work. There's currently a revival of OG Xbox modding in my area so the love is still going.

    Who doesn't love a bit of Outrun? The 3DS port was amazing.

    It would be cool to play this on switch with the wide-screen support. :yay:
