    This is my Vita port of Cannonball, an enhanced Outrun engine by djyt.

    Thanks djyt for writing such a great program and making sure it is easily portable.

    Thanks to @ScHlAuChi for testing.

    Thanks to my Patreon supporter(s): @CountDuckula

    Note: Arcade roms from Outrun version B are required and are NOT included in the download.

    A detailed Manual and FAQ are here:
    https://github.com/djyt/cannonball/wiki

    Vita Controls
    =====
    L - Insert Coin
    R - Menu
    Square - Start
    Triangle - Gas
    Circle - Break
    Cross - Change Gears
    Analog Stick - Steering Wheel

    Installation Instructions
    =====
    Note: arcade roms from Outrun version B are required to run this homebrew!

    - Install the .vpk
    - Extract the contents of data.zip into ux0:data/ (it is just two folders and an info file for roms)
    - Obtain the arcade roms for Outrun Version B and extract them into ux0:data/cannonball/roms
    - Launch the bubble, enjoy Outrun in almost perfect 60 fps.

    Changelog
    =====
    1.05
    • dpad works now if analog="off"
    • gas/brake on right stick if analog="on" (digital gas/brake on buttons if analog="wheel only")
    1.04
    • better image quality (less blurry)
    • support non-fullscreen modes
    1.03
    • moved menu navigation to the dpad. True analog steering wheel control can now be enabled in the controls menu, and the menu can still be navigated afterwards.
    1.02
    • removed unneccessary temporary files (__MACOSX, .DS_Store) from data.zip
    1.01
    • forgot to include config.xml in data.zip, it is now included

    I think there's an SDL port for PSP, so it might be possible. It would be interesting to see the fps on PSP :)

    This is really awesome. Outrun is one of most favorite arcade games, and Cannonball has some very nice improvements to an already really fun game. Thanks for the effort!

    PS - With a bit of fiddling, I was able to get it compiled under Ubuntu 14.04 with OpenGL (which isn't surprising since it's supposed to work with Debian and Raspberry PI). Without OpenGL, on high res + 60fps ~50% of one core is busy in Xorg, which is always fun...

    Outrun is one of my fav Arcade games
    And one of most impressive Arcades ever with After Burner II and Galaxy Force II (the 60fps scaling is still impressive)
    Nice job man

    With 1.5 version at 16:9 I have slowdown when race starts.

    Any fix or is to much for vita?

    Enchanced mode is very slow too.
