 ExCeSs brings you "Crazy Cars III (Arcade) +6D [easyflash]" 20:45

Original tape game from 1992. The so called "arcade version" with awful loading times. we believe this version was not cracked before, so a first release over 25 years later. Enjoy this game.

 Jewel Version of Lemmings, an +15 Trainer with Docs and NTSC Fix for Easyflash 11:11
ExCeSs is damn proud to present you this very cute game title for your Easyflash Cartridge:

Released January 20th 2018, on the Excess 26th anniversary party in Emsdetten/Germany.

You may have noticed we silently took a sidestep from merely racing for points for some weeks now.. 2017 was one big learning curve raising our game to old form and beyond.. and yes.. we’ve listened to fans, friends as well as critics on and off the pitch asking for higher quality.

Secondly, racing in a points system where rules are deliberately vague, applied randomly and recently just shamelessly abused to falsify results.. where’s the point?

History is written by those holding a pen.. Coming back to challenge others, yet late to the game, we’ve expressed our ideas to peers we respect and now respectfully lean back and wait for an alternative that can be respected and supported by the entire Excess family.

We will shoot out the occasional clean cut firsties where we can if we feel they cannot be ignored altogether, but other than that, powered by a member vote on our 26th anniversary, our focus shifts towards bringing the scene releases that don’t count for points but rather quality and function.

This release was completed during a period of several weeks in 2017/2018 by our project team lead by Knight Rider, with assistance from Almighty God, Artlace, Bordeaux, Eco, Faayd, Ghost, Harry Potthead, pcollins, Stablizer and Stormfront.

Many thanks also go out to:
Mason for providing cassette tape and disk originals.
As well as da Blondie for the ‘Room 2’ sid we use in our docs viewer.

Enjoy this release, and see you soon in new productions..

EXCESS in 2018 – More than you deserve!
