PLAYING CELICA GT RALLY!
Once the game has loaded, the first screen that you will be presented with
is the Control Preferences screen, from wich you can tailor the game to your
own requirements. Use the cursor keys to move up and down the options, and
left and right keys to highlight your chosen option, or use joystick. On the
other versions, use the keyboard (keys indicated a little later) to make yer
The options are:
Controller:joystick or mouse.
Gears:Manual or Automatic.
Steering:Auto or click.
This option allows you to have either self centring, or non
self centring steering. If you chose self centring (Auto),
the steering will return to a central position once you re-
turn the joystick to the center. With 'Click' steering you
will need to move the joystick in qn opposite direction to
the one in wich the car is currently being steered to chan-
ge the direction.
Sensitivity:Low, Medium or High.
This option will allow you to to alter the sensitivity of
the steering. High sensitivity will make the game more dif-
ficult and challenging, whilst the Low sensitivity will
make the game easier for beginners.
Reverse steering:On or Off.
While we were demonstrating Toyota to a number of journa-
lists, they had the opportunity to try to drive a car with
the steering reversing, so that turning the steering whell
left would turn the car right, and turning it right would
turn the car left. this proved so popular that we decided
to include it as an option in our game. So, once you com-
pleted Toyota with correct steering, an even bigger chal-
lenge will be to try it with the reversed steering.
Once you have altered the game to your preferences, hit the
space bar or the fire button to exit menu. On living this
screen, you will be given the options 'Start a Season' or
'Practice a Track'. You will also bi given a chance to load
a saved game by pressing F10, or by using the joystick. If
you chose the 'Practice Track' option, you will be given the
choice of wich country to race in, either England, Mexico or
Finland. Once this is chosen, you will automatically be
taken to this track. Should you chose to 'Start a Season',
you will be taken to another menu.
Note:Pressing the HELP key will return you to this menu from
any point of the game.

current drivers. If you chose to alter the number or change the name
of the drivers, you will first be asked to enter the number of dri-
vers, from one to four, by pressing the number key. You will next be

This will lead you to the Co-drivers notes. At the top of the screen
you will see two labels, Start and Finish. As you progress along the
road, a line will be drawn between these two to indicate the lengh
of track remaining. The larger illustration in the bottom left hand
corner shows the road and how it progresses.
The two flashing chevrons indicate at what point a message will be
said or displayed if you enter one at this point. The messages avail
able to you are readable on the right hand side of the screen, and
by each one is a key to press to enter the particular message. So,
for example, should you wish to signal a 'Hard Left' message, you
