| This is just a short summary of commands and a description of things in |
| Autoduel for those of you who have never played Car Wars or Autoduel Cham- |
| pions. The game is in a futuristic setting where society fell because of |
| food shortages and became very barbarianistic. Many towns and cities be- |
| came fortresses and the motorcycle gangs ruled the countryside. Death spo- |
| rts became popular and autoduelling started when "Crazy Joe" Harshman won |
| a destruction derby by mounting a .50 cal machinegun on his car. In res- |
| ponse to the increase of cycle gangs and their sophisticated weaponry |
| many citizens arm themselves. Police are no longer able to deal with armed |
| vehicles and informal highway duels increase.... |
| |
| In Autoduel, the object of the game is to have fun killing other people |
| and plundering their possessions. When you first start out, you have $2000 |
| and 50 skill points. Be sure to buy body armor at the truck stop before |
| anything else. In this game, anything hit by gunfire or ramming is partia- |
| lly destroyed. DP is how many "hits" something will take before it is tot- |
| ally gone. So when you buy body armor, you actually double the number of |
| hits you may take. At first, all you can do is to try to earn some money |
| by going to the Arena for Amateur's Night. There you get a car on loan and |
| fight with other amateur's for a cash prize. You can only do this if you |
| are poor and low in reputation. You can gain money by winning tournaments, |
| delivering items, selling items, etc, and prestige by being victorious, a |
| dependable courier, or a merciless vigilante. Otherwise if you get frust- |
| rated and can't get anywhere, track $1A sector $00 has all your character |
| information - $14-$16 is money and $17-$19 your skills. |
| |
| If you make a "kill" you may salvage your victim's items, if he has any |
| by getting out of your car "G" and moving over it. If there is anything to |
| be found, take it back to your car (if you have enough room and weight) to |
| sell it at the salvage shop. Some other commands - CTRL T gives you a list |
| of all cargo carried and which car is carrying it (you can have eight cars |
| if you want to) CTRL C gives you the status of your car, CTRL D status of |
| yourself, CTRL L for location and time, and Q to save the game. |
