Looks interesting, like Decathlon for the VIC-20. Is there a .tap-file for download somewhere? Or can you create one?

Cool game.
I remember when they released this one. All kids believed that it would be the best Finnish game ever.

When I saw it first time.. it has very interesting graphics. :D

I transfered it from TAP to d64.
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8255&p=90419#p90316

I found a bug that is still in the current beta (which was also in the TAP-file) - there's a typo in the code that allows you to set 60 players when the limit should be 6 - if you do the program will crash after the first event loads.

I'm putting together a double language d64 where you initially select English or Finnish, will probably finish it today.

I'd love to get some instructions how to play the games, it's difficult guessing...

You can also enter a non-numeric and get a 'redo from start' error

Was the booklet ever scanned? Anyone willing to translate the instructions booklet from Finnish, if Mikam still owns it (and is willing to scan it)?

That's true, there's no protection against poor input. If you'd set 8 players everything would seem fine until the first event is loaded - and there it would crash.

I wrote to Mikam73, we'll see if he pops in and answers.

These weren't sold in very many copies it seems so it's a very rare title.

Sorry to bump such an old thread, but I found this comprehensive coverage for the C64 and VIC versions of the game: http://frgcb.blogspot.it/2017/05/frgr-1 ... .html#more

Nice to see, maybe I'll try a round now that there's some help.
