    N64 Cruis'n World more closer to the arcade version!
    IMAGES: (click to open the spoiler)
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    BASE ROM: Cruis'n World (U).

    Italian-american collaborations with SubDrag hacker (Very thanks to him 'cause he made the bigger work) here is an improved Cruis'n World rom by a lot of reasons:

    - Pure Cruise mode difficulty (not Championship) is now faithful to the real arcade version
    - The trophy girl have all her random costumes like in the arcade
    - Starting girl now have her original costume and a more visible smile
    - Obstacles now are flatting like in the arcade, before hacking were like a traffic car, same effect for the race...
    - Restored original arcade car, tracks and songs names!
    - Arcade original blue sky for every track in the Cruise The World mode except for the Moon!
    - Arcade original musics for Germany, England, KenyAfrica and Egypt! The Moon change the music to "Shifter"!
    - Fixed the invisible plants Eurocom bug in the China shortcuts!


    Unfortunately are present also few bugs for this function, some object that have to flat couldn't do correctly or couldn't bend totally, for your race the effect is the same but you'll see them remain in their position, like you trespass them, maybe the problem was that Eurocom not finished their animations...

    Difficulty became altered due to the multipliers activated after every victory, 'til a maximum of 5-6 victories, step by step the rival cars became faster and not was possible clean them, now the game still load them in a new game with 5-6 victories, but if you lose the emulator and reload the savegame once will not reloaded again, and will not reloaded after new victories.

    Cruis'n World have now a different feeling, more closer to the arcade version, but the project can't be considered finished, remains to do:
    - Restore GIB routine copying the discovered beta leftovers for all animals and add 3 missing static animals
    - Restore race vocal announces (impressed into the rom as sounds, but need ASM for set them)
    - Restore Hawaii waterfalls
    - Fix finish line coordinates (are too advanced)
    - Improve the crowd at the finish line (have to be random)
    - Restore fire in ATV turret when you press the trump and change ATV & Orca cars 3D models like arcade ones
    - Improve flatting animations for objects that don't bend correctly
    - Restore president ending
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    If someone would help can send me a mail to ema89acquario@live.it, priority goes to GIB and race announces, but every help is precious.

    -Fixed the invisible plants Eurocom bug in the China shortcuts!
    -Fixed also the Gimpee car logo!
    -Arcade original blue sky for every track in the Cruise The World mode except for the Moon!
    -Arcade original musics for Germany, England, KenyAfrica and Egypt! The Moon change the music to Shifter, the Germany music according to the Eurocom, according to me instead with it's "galactic" notes is more appropriate for the Moon!

    This is very neat. But this will only run on a emulator thought right? No EverDrive support?

    Really, works? And that emulator supports also Cruis'n Exotica?
    Is full working in the Everdrive (tested myself also if I prefer the Not64 emulator in the WII due to the resolution and the framerate) you have only to update the checksum after the patches. But this is a must also if you want to play it into a simple emulator. ^^

    Remember that these patches are for the unswapped Cruis'n World (U) rom.
