what about cartridge version?

Game is too large - cannot be done

How can I download the game in png format for Pico-8?

That’s not possible for multi-cart games.

So a Pico-8 format won't ever exist?

The game *is* running on pico8 engine but cannot exported as a png (too much data).

You can get binaries or html version.

Ok thank you. It sounded strange to me since it was actually loading through Pico-8... so that's a limit of p8.png format.

i think you can still give us .p8 am i right

Amazing work! I love seeing Virtua Racing in this format!

Thanks - the tracks are just too good, whatever format!

They are, I'm a big fan of most of the Sega arcade games, and VR always felt like the most pure arcade experience in my book.

Insanely awesome, nice work!

Curious demake, but with graphic glitches.

It is possible make Virtua Fighter for Pico-8?

Sure - you need a pico licence ($15) and some coding skills.

That isn't what I was referring to, and that question wasn't because I wanted to have Pico-8.
