More information:
This is an almost finished racing game in VB with computer controlled cars (up to 20!), a course editor, many different styles of courses and is an great start for anyone wanting to make a racing game. It is also a good example of: game physics such as collision detection and friction, fast graphics, math involved with turning corners, computer AI (the cars can be made to race around any user-made course!), making level editors, and how to makie an cool game with considerably few lines of code.

I would like someone to finish off the game, and they can take half the credit, as long as they send the game to me (KingSimon@HisPalace.fsbusiness.co.uk) to be put on my website.

The game is somewhat complex, so please read the readme.txt file before using. There is a tutorial on how to use this game on my web site at www.hispalace.fsbusiness.co.uk/racingtut.htm
