NASCAR SimRacing Demo will only install and run on machines running Windows 98,
Windows ME, Windows 2000 or Windows XP. If using Microsoft Windows 2000, XP
Pro/Home, you must have administrator rights in order to install.
1. Run NASCAR SimRacing Demo.exe and follow the on-screen prompts. Note the
folder to which you extracted the installation files.
2. Once you have completed the above step, go the directory to which you
extracted the install files to and run setup.exe. Follow the on screen
3. When the installation is finished, the installation program adds a program
group called EA SPORTS\NASCAR SimRacing Demo to your Start\Programs menu, and a
shortcut to your desktop. Click on this shortcut or alternatively click on the
start button on your Windows task bar. Under Programs\EA SPORTS\NASCAR
SimRacing Demo select NASCAR SimRacing Demo to play.
NASCAR SimRacing Demo requires DirectX version 9.0c or higher to be installed
on your personal computer in order to run.
If your sound card or video card does not support DirectX 9.0c or higher,
please contact your hardware vendor.
To uninstall NASCAR SimRacing Demo:
1. Go to Programs\EA SPORTS\NASCAR SimRacing Demo in the Start menu.
2. Click on Uninstall NASCAR SimRacing Demo to proceed.
1. Click on the Start menu, select Settings and then Control Panel.
2. Now find Add/Remove Programs and click to run.
3. Scroll down the list until you see NASCAR SimRacing Demo, select it and
click on Add/Remove to uninstall.
A configuration utility called 3D Setup is installed with NASCAR SimRacing
Demo. When you install and play the game for the first time, 3D Setup
automatically asks you to confirm the default selection, and normally users
will find this selection satisfactory.
Whenever you install or remove video devices, do not run NASCAR SimRacing Demo
again without first running 3D Setup from the Start Menu. The 3D Setup
shortcut is located in the Programs\EA SPORTS\NASCAR SimRacing Demo start menu.
3D Setup will test your system for the presence of supported video devices
(this may be accompanied by a black screen flash on your monitor). When 3D
Setup appears, click the OK button to select the default video device, or
an alternative 3D accelerator and/or rendering resolution by clicking on it and
then clicking OK. If an unsupported video device or other problem is detected
by the 3D Setup program, you will be informed that this is the case.
If you increase the settings of your display options and experience graphical
problems and/or decreased performance and have the latest drivers, we recommend
setting your Display options back to their defaults.
Users of L.C.D. displays, especially laptop displays, may experience noticeably
decreased performance when running the game at any resolution other than the
native resolution of the L.C.D. display which is usually 1280x1024.
Users with Full Screen Anti-Aliasing (FSAA) enabled on video cards that support
this feature may notice occasional minor graphical issues - we recommend that
FSAA is disabled when playing NASCAR SimRacing Demo. 3D Setup will analyze your
video systems ability to render with Full Screen Anti-Aliasing (FSAA) enabled
and in some cases disallow the option based upon the detected hardware and
Users of NVIDIA video cards utilizing the NVIDIA Forceware 66.93 or 66.94
drivers and AMD processors without SSE support may experience various graphical
problems. These problems can be avoided by using an older version of the NVIDIA
SSE (Streaming SIMD Extensions) support is included in all Intel Pentium III
and Pentium IV processors as well as on AMD CPUs that support AMD's 3Dnow!™
Professional technology, which is supported in all Model 8 and Model 6 AMD
Athlon™ processors (AMD Athlon XP, AMD Athlon MP, mobile AMD Athlon 4) and
Model 7 AMD Duron™ processors.
NASCAR SimRacing Demo is not compatible with Video cards that use the SIS
Users of the Matrox Parhelia video card may experience graphical problems and
their vehicle rendered incorrectly at times within the user interface.
Users of the Matrox Parhelia 128 MB video card may occasionally experience
flickering horizontal lines if the Refresh Rate for the card is set lower than
Users of video cards incorporating the NVIDIA GeForce Ti 4600 chipset and
version 66.93 of the NVIDIA Forceware may experience problems such as the
car not being displayed on the main menu.
Users of Windows 98, a video card incorporating any of the NVIDIA GeForce
chipsets and version 61.76 of the NVIDIA Forceware may experience problems with
rendering of the driver arms/hands.
Users of Windows 98 and ME, a video card incorporating any of the NVIDIA
GeForce chipsets and version 66.94 of the NVIDIA Forceware may experience
with graphical corruption if the 3D Setup program is run consecutively without
restarting your machine in between. Restarting your machine will fix any
Under Windows 98 and ME, certain tasks such as the Dial Up Networking interface
may be deemed the active task whilst being displayed in front of, behind or
underneath the game. In order to return active control to the game, use the
windows task switching hot key (Alt Tab) to toggle through the active tasks and
return priority to the game.
On some video cards, you may encounter problems using Windows multi-task keys
(Alt-Tab etc.) to switch between NASCAR SimRacing Demo and other active
applications. We recommend avoiding any form of Windows multi-tasking during
play at all times possible.
Fast user switching within Windows XP on machines with less than 512 MB RAM
and/or low virtual memory settings may cause the game to be terminated during
switch. We do not recommend the use of fast user switching during play.
With V-Sync enabled the introductory and subsequent movies may slow down and/or
stutter occasionally. This does not affect game play and can be bypassed by
while the movie is playing.
When playing the game with limited user rights, game files are saved in the My
Documents directory for the limited user account. These files will not be
removed automatically by the uninstall process.
Users of the Diamond Multimedia Monster Sound MX400 and Windows 98 may
experience stuttering sound in the event that sound acceleration is enabled.
Users of the ESS Maestro, Philips Acoustic Edge and integrated VIA Audio sound
devices may experience occasional audio inconsistencies.
ISA sound cards are not supported.
Users that may have manually reduced their virtual memory or are running low on
hard drive space may experience problems running the game. We strongly
recommend that Windows is set to automatically manage virtual memory and that a
minimum of 256 MB virtual memory is always allowed.
If you have problems with saving and recording replays, it's possible that you
will need to free up some hard drive space to accommodate the data saved as
you play the game. For best performance, we recommended that you have at least
1 Gigabyte of free hard drive space available at all times.
If you run out of hard drive space as a result of saving a large replay file,
upon reloading this file and playing it, the game may exit to desktop upon
reaching the point in time that you ran out of drive space.
Certain game controllers may not be detected consistently by your operating
system. In any case that you are unable to get a certain game controller to
function, first check that the controller is reported to be OK under your
operating system. If the controller is reported as OK then ensure that you have
selected under Options. If the controller still fails to respond once selected,
enter the Controls page from Settings and remap the controls for your device
as described in the manual.
Users of the Wingman Formula Force wheels may occasionally see the test gizmo
within the Controls pages indicate that both the Accelerator and Brake pedals
are partially depressed when they are not. Pressing the pedals completely and
releasing them slowly will correct this problem.
Windows ME users with DirectX 9.0c or lower installed may need to install
DirectX 8.1 prior to upgrading to the latest DirectX 9.0c included on the game
in order for the game to run correctly.
In the event you experience any visual or audio related abnormality that is not
mentioned herein, please contact your hardware manufacturer to verify that
you have the latest drivers installed.
