I seem to recall on the old N64 version, you just jammed the stick forward and your little throttle thingie on the side slide upwards until it was yellow, then you could tap your A key to go into boost.

I can't seem to get that to work in the GOG version, and I'm not sure what I've done wrong. I've tied throttle to my 360 controller's Y axis, as well as to the triggers, and nothing allows me to activate the boost feature. Am I missing something?

With the default XBox 360 mapping, hold Up on the left analog stick and then press the X button to boost.
Aaaagh! I forgot about holding 'up'. That was on the N64 version, too. I guess I should have just read the manual =p

Thanks -- for some reason setting up custom mappings broke everything. I didn't even realize there was a default -- but setting the joystick mapping back to default fixed this issue, and then the X button explanation you provided worked like a charm.

I play with a N64 controller (RetroLink) bind the thrust and the boost to the same button and it will function just like the N64 version
I play with keyboard (yeah, I'm a tough guy) and it took me some time to figure out as well.
Default mapping is: keep arrow up pressed until yellow light, then press shift to activate.

I only ever played it with a keyboard when I was a kid and still managed to complete the game (except the infamous Abyss), I didn't even realize you could use anything else on the PC for input (apart from a mouse of course). As a matter of fact, I also just kinda assumed that consoles as a gaming platform stopped existing after the MegaDrive/SNES era. Yeah, I was such a bright kid...

I even managed the abyss. After many painful tries.
