Would these games have 2 or even multiplayer support?

Not real multiplayer support. I think only something like for 5 sharing for sessions. But not 100% sure.

I'm confused, the screenshots show Midnight Rally: https://twitter.com/nf_ban/status/1273900794266284034
So, what is Midnight Rally's relation with A1 Grandprix?

They are both out of our reach for the very same reasons. :)

Perhaps someone else speaking Japanese could reach out to Mr. Takashi... you never know.

Recently Takashi also posted some screenshots: https://twitter.com/nf_ban/status/1273900794266284034

Too bad the game is still MIA (and knowing someone has a copy...)

Amazing ! And it is a 2 years old post ! We need someone who speaks Japanese to see if we could talk the guy to make a dump. Maybe if we explain that if a dump is available, we could somehow patch the game to work with another type of network (or implement something similar to the link network using an emulator). That might help convincing the guy to make a dump and give it to us.

It is scary to think that, if something happens to this guy's copy, the game can be lost forever....

Should we start raising funds so we can give him a small reward? Should we send in postcards from all over the world? Or should we give him an honorary membership to MRC?

I'm in for any of these options.

I don't know if he would. It would be nice but I don't know if he could be convinced with copyright and all that. Would there be a chance that it could be gotten to work on emulator as though it was back in 1987/1988?

AFAIK network is not required to to play (at least Midnight rally), but this is not the biggest problem here... I tried already years back to explain that I know how the encryption algorithm works and that I am able to completely decrypt the data blocks manually and by that way remove the hardware lock completely, so that it just looks that it has been released as free software. I also offered to remove all the possible user credential related identifications, but at least that was not yet enough...
