Hyper Rails, the new PC coaster simulator, is set to ship August 15. The publisher has posted new screenshots of the editor as well as photos of the retail box.
See more at the official Hyper Rails site.
I wonder if you can interlace the coasters?
Now if we could only add a lemon chill stand... :)
"The Future of Roller Coasters"
Hopefully it's more user friendly than NL.
Where do I find the system requirements?
The CPlaya 100--6 days, 9 parks, 47 coasters, 2037 miles and a winner.....LoCoSuMo.
Flights on Air: 1
Escapes From Nemesis: 1
Drops into Oblivion: 1
I'm guessing the requirements will be on the high side, because you're pushing a lot of polygons and potentially more than one ride on the map. I'm sure you could get away with a an older 3D card, but I bet a 1 GHz processor and a GeForce4 video card would be really helpful.

Soo, who is the publisher that picked up on the game?
If I remember correctly, it wasn't all that long ago, that this game was going to be on-line only. I guess it must have been good enough to impress a publisher.
Does anyone know who picked it up and what their history in previous games are? (ie: other games they published... preferably successful ones)
....Summer is only a short 91 days long. How much of that time are you going to use at the amusement parks??
And this game will be retail, none of that online crap that i just end up Ahem.... Anyway, This game will be sweet I am buying this.
5) S:ros Sfdl 4) Raptor 3) Apollos Chariot 2) Magnum 1) Millennium Force
This is one sweet looking game and it will be in stores at least 2 months ahead of RCT2,now I know what to get for my birthday.
Apparently someone posted something about this game being dead because of RCT2's impending release,well here's the proof that hyper rails is still very much alive and unlike no limits or scream machines it will be available in retail outlets as opposed to online only. Does anyone have any clue as to what the purchase price will be?
Now the question is will the editor be easier or more difficult than No Limits?
While the screens do look nice, I'm still X-tremely skeptical about this product. Remember by it was made by the same people that made that horrible excuse for software known as Rollercoaster Factory.
I don't know how they can realistically go from the lowest of RC programs to what could potentially be the best RC sim on the planet.
Pantera Entertainment are the publisher.
