Cannonball


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.


Emulator: Cannonball

Roms

Place the OutRun Revision B MAME rom in

/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports/cannonball

Custom music

Cannonball can play WAVs instead of using the inbuilt game music.

Custom WAV files can be copied to /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports/cannonball/music, then enabled by editing the config.xml configuration file. Each track can be configured individually in the custom_music section, by specifying the full path to the WAV file and toggling the enable flag:

 <custom_music>
          <!-- Magical Sound Shower Replacement -->
          <track1 enabled="1">
               <title>MAGICAL SOUND SHOWER REMIX</title>
               <filename>/home/pi/roms/ports/cannonball/music/track1.wav</filename>
          </track1>
          <!-- Passing Breeze Replacement -->
          <track2 enabled="0">
               <title>PASSING BREEZE REMIX</title>
               <filename>/home/pi/roms/ports/cannonball/music/track2.wav</filename>
          </track2>
          <!-- Splash Wave Replacement -->
          <track3 enabled="1">
               <title>SPLASH WAVE REMIX</title>
               <filename>/home/pi/roms/ports/cannonball/music/track3.wav</filename>
           </track3>
          <track4 enabled="1">
               <title>LAST WAVE REMIX</title>
          <filename>/home/pi/roms/ports/cannonball/music/track4.wav</filename>
          </track4>
</custom_music>

The config.xml file is located in /opt/retropie/configs/ports/cannonball or (via file shares) in \\retropie\configs\ports\cannonball.
