Description of African Raiders-01

Ancient CGA rally racing game by Tomahawk, set in the isolated deserts of Africa. There's not much else I can say about that :)

The cars look nice, and the tracks are decent. Gets repetitive very quickly, though. If you like mindless, arcade-style racing games, this is another one of them.

VGA Version

Although a nimble trace of a VGA version can be found on the internet, MobyGames user POMAH was kind enough to explain how he took the screenshots in VGA:

Actually, the already existed version of the game available on abandonware sites already supports different modes and it should be configured within the configuration file (CARTE.INF). You may see that it has size of two bytes. You will need 1st byte of it. It may be varied from 01 to 10 or else in hex-codes. To get VGA mode you should change its value to 05 in hex-code.

But here the next issue will appear. After the game starts, it will try to rewrite this CARTE.INF file with its own. So, you should fool the game by setting attribute for this file to Read-only state.

If my suggestions are helpful for you, good luck.

Best Regards, POMAH.

We added the VGA configuration in the game archive as default, and added a backup directory. Do not forget to set CARTE.INF to read-only before launching the game (right click > properties).

To get VGA mode, change the first byte in CARTE.INF file to 05, save, and set this file to be read-only, restricting its overwrite. Run LOADER.EXE and enjoy!

PC shots show it in VGA, but all abandonware versions seem to be CGA only. Does a VGA version exist? There's one video on YouTube that claims to show it, and it sounds like the DOS version.

p.s. you can get the map here:

The game requires a map that came with the game or else you would not be able to finish it.
