Grand Prix 2
Grand Prix 2 downloads
Grand Prix 2 was made under an official FIA license that featured the Formula One 1994 season, with all of the circuits, teams, drivers and cars. The cars were painted with liveries reflecting the races that did not allow tobacco and beer sponsors (e.g. 1994 British Grand Prix).
The game was developed by Geoff Crammond as a follow up to 1991's Formula One Grand Prix (which was known as World Circuit in the US).
Because of its revolutionary true-to-reality style, programmers began to crack the code. The first known Track Editor was built by Andy Barganski, and a collection of new circuits built using this editor were published (commercially) by Instant Access Int Ltd. René Smit and Frank Ahnert created Gp2lap, that read the track files from the hard-disk instead of the CD, so track editing would be possible.

Well my remark was not against you but the game itself. Actually never had such trouble with GP V1 : arrows were running very smoothly.
For example "The Need for Speed" and "Xenon II" (both from your site) manage the arrows under DOSbox without any trouble.
If by chance you find (remember) the trick, let us know please.
Thank anayway for all teh good stuff you provide us. "Keep up the good work, officer".
