The patch is at the discord server.
Scroll down to the Poochihead comment and you'll see the link for Discord.

Where do I find the updated 3Dconfig.exe for setting up proper widescreen resolutions?

blask aka blsk 2023-05-21 1 point

Just to make things more clear - the fix in the previous post should be installed over modern patch from the discord server to fix the "only 5 other cars visible" problem.
With that said it probably would work on a vanilla game too, but without other modern files - especially the updated 3DConfig.exe - you can't set higher resolutions.

I'm pretty sure there is a fix for the 6 visible cars in the discord server, but I'll post it here too just in case.

@SENATOR BLACKFISH change the compatibility to windows 95 or windows 98.

Poochihead: There is a major problem with your mod. It doesn't show a full grid while racing, only 5 other cars. It doesn't matter if you change settings in game or edit the .plr file, it only shows 5 other opponents.

are you sure there is no virus or malware?

I used to own this game years ago on a Windows XP system. This is easily the best and most realistic Formula 1 simulation I have ever owned or played.

I would like to know how seemingly everyone else is able to get this running on Windows 10 whereas I absolutely cannot -- and have spend hours trying many different things including Voodoo graphics wrapper and compatibility settings...

I first bought F1 2001 and 20 years later I'm still playing F1C and it's still amazing though I play it on a Mac with Wineskin these days. I started modding in 2009 and have since modded my own version of F1 2011 from Seth's F1 2007, one of the best performing versions I've played.

When I downloaded this game I received a message from Webroot telling me they had discovered a virus within the files. If you download this, be wary. I couldn't get it to run on my pc once it was all installed. Compatibility wasn't right.

Chechumaru 2020-06-12 2 points

Works great! Key and crack are inside the ISO.

Lanky 2020-03-10 0 point

We need a CD crack file. Won't work otherwise.
