    Recently the free reverse engineered Sega's Outrun binary, has been ported to 68k Amigas but needs explicitly a Vampire accelerator (even the 060 is way too slow).

    The engine is rather impressive itself and you can check it in action here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8yVqB13EtZg&t=0s

    Basically, it has been ported to 68k specifically to demonstrate the Vampire's gold kernel capabilities and you can read more about it here: http://www.apollo-core.com/knowledge.php?b=3¬e=4767

    Anyhow, why spend 300+ euros just for a demo, when you can try and play it on MorphOS? ;)

    The idea came to me when I checked that's P96 friendly so I thought to myself, why not give it a go? :)

    Download the 68k port, from here:http://aminet.net/package/game/race/CannonBall
    Download the main Outrun rev. B mame rom files from here: http://coolrom.com/roms/mame/9681/Out_Run_(sitdown*upright,_Rev_B).php
    Download the extra rom rev. B files from here:https://edgeemu.net/download.php?id=18225

    Unpack main archive, place all roms files under roms drawer and copy everything to your HD. Run the executable. Profit? :D

    Note: I haven't found any outun rom B archive on the net which come with the complete epr set needed as described on the port's readme. Therefore, download both aforementioned archives.

    USB joystick also work!

    Only problem is sound (I don't get any) but I am fairly sure that's due to the alterations which have been made to the engine from the porter. Read more on the readme.If anyone can contact him, let him know about that pl :(

    i tried to compile cannoball... but boost library missed....

    If anyone have this library : Boost Library 1.51 min
    I can port it (i think)

    PowerMac 2.7ghz MOS 3.9
    PowerBook 1.5Ghz MOS 3.9

    The most of the Boost library just consists of headers.

    I don't think so.

    no just headers...

    Many recent libraries are missing on MorphOS : (examples :)
    - Boost
    - PhySFS 2
    - SDL2 mixer
    - SDL2 image

    And compiler so... :
    - CMake

    I test a lot of port with no succes :
    - C-Dogs, Cannonball, Supertux, scummvm
    MacMini 1.5Ghz MOS 3.9
    PowerMac 2.7ghz MOS 3.9
    PowerBook 1.5Ghz MOS 3.9

    The P96 drivers for the Vampire and the RiVA video player are the only two programs I know that use AMMX at this time anyway. I'm not surprised that MorphOS runs it. The sound is not the original since that was too difficult to emulate on a Vampire so a PT MOD player was used to substitute for the music.
