Star Wars Racer

Hi,

does anyone have any other patches for playing Star Wars: Racer on Win7 and/or WinXP? The patch from the LucasArts website doesn't work and they don't even support that game anymore!

Thanks

Have you tried running the game in compatability mode?

The game is from 1998. It was intended for Win 95, 98, or ME.

I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't run on Windows 2000 or any newer OS that has no DOS underpinnings.

Does anyone run a virtual machine (such as VirtualBox) to support old games? May not be worth the trouble.

I know this is a bit of a bump, but I too would be interested in any suggestions anyone has for this. BTW, the game has been proven to work in XP and Vista both, even 32-bit Win 7 I think. I just haven't yet been able to figure out how those people did it...
