Star Wars Episode 1 Racer Will Start and Then Crash Out

★★★★ Newbie

After starting Star Wars Episode 1 Racer the game will show the blue loading bar and loading mouse circle cursor but then abruptly exit back to the origin menu screen. I've tried "repairing" the game but nothing worked also logged out and back in to no avail.

Hey @soleil0731 

 

Since it's quite an old game now (20 years old this year to be exact!), it might have some issues with running on newer operating systems. Have you tried to run the game in a compatibility mode with Windows XP (or older OS)?

Hello,

Running as compatibility mode does not work. The version I believe they are using is the one recently put on Origin. I purchased it and have the same issue. It crashes after seeing a blue loading line. Compatibility mode did not even get close to helping this.

So I have attempted ever compatibility mode available Doesn't work. Would be nice if EA made sure a game worked on current systems before pushing it out or at least offer some form of a fix. This is really disappointing but not surprising.

@Asylom85 This is not an EA game. Episode I Racer was developed in-house by the now defunct LucasArts.

 

Do you have the GOG version? Usually CD Projekt improves compatibility when publishing games on their storefront. Check out the game's dedicated forum on GOG for help with your issues: https://www.gog.com/forum/star_wars_episode_i_racer#1564845271



I don't work for EA.
