Nice, thanks.

Cheers, just a few level edits


I am just in love with this! Thanks for this quality remake of Out Run

Just a few levels to go with the work by 

Reassembler Blog.

I've been asking for a sprite editor to provide new characters with the new levels .

I'm not sure how to run this mod. I can only import outrun levels not an JH1. There's also only a JH3

Run LayOut.exe - Then select track to import JH1 OR JH3, when loaded select export track and run. This is also the level editor to build new routes for the game. More information here.


Hope this helps

I too cannot get the mod to import. There is only an option to import "level" not import "track". When selecting import level, there is no JH1 or JH3 listed. In the Game folder I can see the file JH.bin & JH2.bin. There is no JH1 or JH3, obviously I'm mossing something (no doubt something simple)

It's Open Project JH or JH2.bin. I was attempting to complete a new set of coast to coast levels for routes A-E and ideally new sprites when the editor is available. Plus having little response to the work so far the project is on hold for now.

I encourage using the level editor urself aswell.


cool, sussed it now. Thanks!

Cheers let me know how it goes and if you do any tracks of your own I can highlight in my outrunning videos for youtube?


This is absolutely fantastic

I'm glad you enjoyed. Outrun was an arcade favorite and finding this engine rebuilt from scratch in C++ for windows with the upscaled effects a pleasure. Did you enjoy the two custom levels? I was planning more and a sprite hack to feature sega characters as driver/passenger

Are all your projects listed online to see? One of the most interesting arcade style-racer I've seen recently was Nitronic Rush which I wanted modding with new vehicles and levels if you were interested. Or potentially a VR Outrun 2020?

Ideas are the material of games, I'm working on a VR trilogy atm if you were interested in taking a look.

I'm not on discord atm, worth joining?
