Game description: Enthusia Professional Racing puts you in the driver's seat and re-creates the sensation of racing actual cars. Choose from hundreds of cars from more than 30 manufacturers, and then practice your driving techniques in racing competitions. As in the real world, winning is a result of ability rather than how much money has been spent tuning a car. Enthusia Professional Racing features a wide range of weather conditions, randomly generated courses, and graphic depictions of G-forces.
Enthusia Professional Racing is a simulation racing game that sets itself apart by having a decent variety of vehicles old and new. Enthusia borrows from the Dance Dance Revolution series by using a series of point scoring heavily built from DDR's point scoring system.
Test configurations on Windows:
||Windows 7 Enterprise
- Intel Core i5 2450m 2.5GHz
- Intel HD Graphics 3000
||GSdx 5875 AVX
||BIOS: USA v1.60; runs okay, never crashed after I ripped my own personal ISO. Post-processing seems to be holding back the game's speed. Once again, runs better on software mode, but it is not nearly as gradual as Gran Turismo 3. 45-50 FPS in a menu with vehicles, 25-35 in-race.
||Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
- Intel i5 4690k @4.5Ghz
- Nvidia GTX 750Ti
- SPU2-X r5830
- Lilypad 0.11.0

Thin black vertical lines
- Status: Fixed
- Type: Minor
- Description: Using a custom resolution or scaling can cover the screen with thin black lines. This issue seems to affect only this Konami game.
- Workaround: Use native scaling and turn on 'Align Sprite' in 'HW Hacks' of the video plugin. For custom resolution use 1260x(any) resolution. You can subtract any multiple of 60 from 1260 (eg, 1200, 1140, 1080, etc) as needed for performance, but no horizontal resolution greater than 1260 works. Vertical resolution has no effect on the black bars, so you can set this to any value you desire.
