That link is accessed via the game though and still doesn't include the Virtua Racing one. Just seems weird.

 

That's what I said.

How does it work without analogue triggers?

 

The pedals in the arcade version weren't analogue either. DUN DUN DUUUUUUNNNNNNN

This is the first time I've really played this properly save for one or two goes on the cabinet over a period of many years. It's wonderful.

 

Managed to finish the three courses but only third place on the latter two so plenty of room for improvment. Had a look on the leaderboards and was surprised to find myself one place below someone called jonnyalpha. Rings a bell..

 

Edit: Just switched it to arcade handling, what a difference! I'd assumed it was meant to be twitchy as fuck, like Daytona on the Dreamcast or something.

 Unless I'm doing something wrong, online play is only for two players which is a shame. Also every two player game that I have played has been quite laggy and the lag varies depending on the opponent.  The rubberbanding is quite extreme as well although I remember the arcade version was the same .

The online side isnt what I expected at all. When I tried it last month with @Lyrical Donut I figured that no-one was online because of the Japan time difference and the game not being available anywhere else.  But unless I'm missing something  there's only a 2 player online game. You can create a room but it requires a pin number so you'd have to play with someone you are in communication with to give them the number.  And in the online screen there's "helper on/off" and "race mode -normal" with no way to change either option.  I'd expected at least 8 player online because it has that on one console for local play. Only offering 2 players is a bit weak.

Right stick does analogue if so required but it’s not a game designed for analogue acceleration/braking as far as I know. 

 

Is online really limited to two players?

Yeah, it really should support at least as many online players as the original arcade version did.

I can’t upload my scores without an online subscription, apparently. Is that right?

 

Are the scores going online? Because I suspect that is right, yes.

I was playing a few games of this on the beginner track yesterday, and no matter how many cars I overtook I always came 6th. What’s happening there, is it a bug or am I lapping cars I’ve already overtaken and am way behind fifth?
