I'm gearing up to play some D1 again (its been a while), and I was only thinking the other day how neat it would be to experience the game in this fashion again.

As Bender would say: Neat  8)

Chocolate Descent 2 looking pretty good. I hope I can get this whole mess released for testing soon but there's still a lot of tiny little things I need to get around to doing...

Honestly the only racer I've really played in years is Trackmania.  It has a sort of exploration, in the way that a mapper can turn the blank world-space into any track they want... and there are plenty out there.  I don't think that's exactly what you're looking for but depending what itch of yours needs scratching it might or might not come close.  And there is a version on PS4 now.

This is super cool. Might have to break out the old CRT monitor and download this.  ;)

Let us know when it's released and I'll put it on the front page!

I've been playing Need For Speed: Payback recently, which I got on the e-store for 10 bucks on sale. I know this one was really hated because of its use of loot boxes, but it was tweaked heavily so your "random" rewards from race wins are almost always an upgrade to your current ride, thereby negating any need to buy a loot box, ever. Worst case scenario, you might have to grind out a couple of races for cash every now and again.

Annoying mechanics aside, though, this has actually been one of my favorite NFS games to date. Huge map, lots of cars, really granular customization options, solid controls, widely varying event types... It's a blast if you can get it on sale.

Im looking for a "Midnight Club" style game. What specifically am I after? Free style playing. Racing and upgrades are fun, but sometimes just racing around is too.
Anyone know of any games?
Im on youtube, searching, but not sure I found anything yet.

Yeah, it's pretty much that, Scyphi. Classic Descent gameplay, classic Descent look, but with modern conveniences. While the game resolution is low and extra crunchy, the window can be of many resolutions, and you can even go borderless fullscreen, and it's automatically pillarboxed to keep the game's classic 4:3 resolution, so the cockpit doesn't look squashed.

OGG music is currently in, though it's a bit simple at the moment. If you place an ogg file in the /music/ directory, with the same name as one of the game's MIDI tracks (ie game01 for level 1), it will play that instead of the MIDI track. This will need some extension in Descent 2 to support the redbook audio tracks, but for now its fine if you want accurate SC55 or OPL recordings or the like. Or maybe drop the Mac/PSX soundtrack in there...

Speaking of ][...

Looks like one to watch!
I'd really like to have a simple software-rendered version of D1 and D2 that just runs on modern OS and adds OGG support for redbook or custom music tracks.  Nothing else necessary.  Just playing it exactly like DOS.  Even Rebirth never seems to get that quite right.
