cannonball - An Enhanced OutRun Engine


CannonBall is a program which allows you to play an enhanced version of Yu Suzuki's seminal arcade racer, OutRun, on a variety of systems.

In order for CannonBall to work you need to provide a copy of the OutRun revision B romset to the roms subdirectory. Rename the files if necessary.

The roms subdirectory can be found at $XDG_DATA_HOME/cannonball/roms which defaults to $HOME/.local/share/cannonball/roms

Configuration can be found at $XDG_DATA_HOME/cannonball/config.xml which defaults to $HOME/.local/share/cannonball/config.xml

NOTE: The directories will be created on the first run of Cannonball if they do not exist.

cannonball does not take any options.
