What they thought about it
"GP2 does make compromises. As sophisticated as its' driving model is, mastering it still happens quicker than with Indicar - which may still be regarded as possessing superior dynamics. This will only displease retired racing drivers thought, the game has been geared for demanding gamers and if the upper 1% of perfectionists can still find fault, then their loss, the rest of us love it." - PC Powerplay

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".

- Gilles Maisonneuve - 27/08/2015 20:37This game CANNOT be played (at least Under DOSBox 0.74 on a W7/64 machine : the game does NOT handle the Arrow keys of the keyboard and there is NO way to configure the keys Inside any possible menu of the game.
