I would make the demo maybe a poker run event, the weekend fun mode. if you have race money saved up it can pay for the entry fee, i don't know just idea.

and don't make any cheat codes for the game.

may be possible to set up like need for speed underground with online multi-players, can race each other.

There is already a coin operated game for offshore racing. Played it in the Beer Barrel at Put in Bay Ohio. Of course we won, Pat and I took on all comers.........

It is sit down one on one, I think they have it for PS, Nintendo, etc.

Choose, Key West, Miami - Nassau - Miami, Daytona, Marathon,

Run a single race or go for a national championship and run the whole series of races in sequence.

Check out NASCAR from Papyrus. This is a perfect template for this game.

Choice of view - In cockpit or behind boat from a chopper or riding on the bow.
Ron, you should be ashamed of youself! What about our hometown course????

Point Pleasant NJ. Home of the BIG Water!

I was thinking about a way to honor our fallen comrades. Could you possibly title the awards after these wonderful people who dedicated their lives to the sport we all Love!

Hydro Thunder is a joke. Just your typical race car game where you can bounce off walls and what not, but on the water.

What they are talking about would only work on a home gaming system since the time commitment would be much great than a coin op game.

I agree Hydro Thunder is very laim!! That is what I ment by no stupid jumps!! Then there is another game called Bloodwake and it's the one with Guns....it's laim to!! Like they said you can bounce off walls, icebergs, etc.

Well wait a second, back when I raced with Gordo I think we bounced off a couple of other race boats.... Yep I think it was at St. Pete during the worlds to be exact!!

I have been wanting a game like this for years - I thought about doing it myself, but you are way ahead of me. I'm willing to help out in any way. I don't have any game system, but I would buy one just for this. I used to have the nascar game - with steering wheel and foot pedals - and always wished it could be a boat with throttles.

If I can help - let me know
