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.

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

Yes, I enjoyed it very much, and I think that is an amazing idea. I work as a writer and semi-designer for many different projects, and if you ever need to make a fully original, arcade racer-inspired game, I would love to help in any way I can.

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?

Sadly they are not, but I have worked on smaller titles such as Bomberman remake called Hide And Go Boom, and other arcade style games that will be released hopefully sometime mid 2019. I don't have much VR experience, but I could surely be the writer, overall these sound like fantastic ideas. If you have discord I would love to message you more on there.

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?
