It works just fine but I've noticed some of the glitches in which included some of the stuff that are in shapes of rectangles and squares and the text that are in black blackgrounds and pictures that aren't transparent at all

I've downloaded the zip and unpacked it but a "_sys1" "_user1" and "data1" file won't unzip

Is there a way to force this on a window (not full screen)
flag -window doesn't do anything it still runs full screen

Using the comments on this page, I was able to run Lego Racers on a virtualized version of Windows 11 ARM running on an M1 Mac!

ole matt 2022-08-29 5 points

Wow, I forgot how much I loved this game as a kid. If you're getting the fatal error message on startup, just go to PropertiesCompatibility and run in compatibility mode under Windows XP (Service Pack 2). Hope this helps!

CharGer 2022-08-21 -1 point

Fantastico juego, ya lo instale y fue un éxito con las instrucciones de ponerlo en daemon trolebus, instalarlo con compatibilidad, cambiando la carpeta, no i salario cosas extra y finalmente ejecutado clas propiedad de compatibilidad sugerida en elmotro comentario

What does editing the target mean? I get the out of video memory popup.

eirhnh 2022-02-08 2 points

this game its so amazing. Download now!

Louziedog 2022-01-05 0 point

For me it worked almost fine, I created a car etc. But when I started the race, a couple of seconds in (so I did play somewhat) the game just disappeared. No warning or so, just gone. Anyone having the same issue? And a fix ;)

fixlegoracers! 2021-11-07 4 points

For anyone running into "unable to initialize display - out of video memory", add the following after the Target when editing the shortcut:

" -novideo -horzres 1024 -vertres 768"

Note, don't include quotes around it

Great site, nice download, have good day

TankShow8 2020-12-20 0 point

It worked for me! I had to use a file archiver to properly unpack the zip file (I used 7zip). Which then left me two items (one being a "LegoRacers" folder, and the other being a "LegoRacers" ISO file. I mouted the ISO file in Daemon Tools Lite. Then I found the specific "Setup" Application file in the "Lego Racers" folder (NOT the "setup" BMP file or the "SETUP" Configuration settings file). I ran the Lego Racers Installation setup. I then right-clicked the "LEGO Racers" Desktop shortcut (the icon is a little lego wheel!) and selected "troubleshoot compatibility". I then selected "troubleshoot program", then selected "The program worked in earlier versions of Windows, but won't install or run now", Then I choose "Windows XP (Service Pack 3)". I then completed the troubleshooter, and now able to start up the game using the Desktop shorcut, without having to always select Run as Administrator :) Also, don't forget to leave Daemon Tools Lite running, with the Lego Racers ISO file mounted (to simulate the CD-ROM).

I haven't played this in forever. I still have my N64 cart in working condition. A big favorite of mine that unfortunately has no GOG/Steam etc. digital download.

Chris 2020-04-12 0 point

Hello, Large Father.
Lol. Just watch some relaxing video or somethin' to get it out of your head.
Yea, the LEGO Racers song is really good to listen to.
Sincerely, Chris.

Chris 2020-04-12 0 point

Hello, Voxnar.
The answer to your question is: Yes.
I'm pretty sure it plays for 2-player.
2-player mode feels pretty good to play too.
Sincerely, Chris.

Chris 2020-04-12 18 points

Alternate LEGO Racers Setup here:
I forgot to include it in my last comment.
Happy racing!

Chris 2020-04-12 -1 point

If you are having trouble installing LEGO Racers, Please use the Alternate LEGO Racers Setup here:
If you continue to have issues, then most likely the CD is corrupt or it's your PC's fault.
If this fixed your problem installing LEGO Racers, please upvote this comment, it helps me a lot. P.S, Set the application to Compatibility Mode (Windows XP Service Pack 2).
Happy racing!

drewpo 2020-04-02 0 point

I downloaded and dragged all the files over into scummvm and it's telling me to choose a game, none of which are lego racers. The feeble files, demon in my pocket, etc, and they all say "Unknown variant" after it. Any help would be appreciated so I can relive my childhood while stuck at home.

Large Father 2020-03-11 0 point

The theme is still stuck in my head, send help.

gantu 2019-10-02 -1 point

works properly when compability is changed to 95 and lowest resolution and then run as administrator.

JACK THE GAMER 2019-09-28 1 point

This game is pretty good. Even if you are not playing it for nostalgia, it is still a pretty fun time. The AI is surprisingly hard for the age range this game suggests, so if you are like me and are a young gamer who likes old games, the game is going to get pretty hard for you.

lliker 2019-08-12 0 point

Try to put compatibility to windows 95
it worked for me

GhettoKid 2019-07-10 1 point

When I played this game, my uncle died. Now every time I play it it reminds me of my uncle. Regards

Red Beard 2019-05-04 3 points

I ran the unzipped file with Virtual CloneDrive, then Setup.exe, but the Setup did nothing.

jack 2019-03-19 0 point

it is very good

Valencia Game Den 2019-02-09 -1 point

For those still having problems, exit steam or any other game launcher that has an overlay. If your graphics card program has an overlay, disable that as well. Those can have compatibility problems with older games. If that still doesn't work, go to 'gamecopyworld' and search 'lego racers'. Use one of the No CD/exe fixes. The site is safe, even if it looks a bit funny and has some annoying ads. Just be sure to use an adblocker before going there and should be a nicer experience. Good luck. Be sure to try to give as much info as possible of why it isn't running, i.e. just doesn't launch, error messages, what OS you are using, etc.

Black Fury 2019-02-08 3 points

this is one of best game ever

fishy 2019-01-29 3 points

Doesn't seem to work for me, even if i used Valencias tutorial.. What might be the problem?

Valencia Game Den 2019-01-14 43 points

How I got running on Windows 10 64bit:
1) Mount ISO using an app like Daemon Tools or Burn to CD.
2) Right click "Setup.exe" on the CD, select properties and go to the 'Compatibility' tab.
3) Check Compatibility mode for "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)".
4) Check "Run this program as an administrator" and click "Apply" or "OK" to set.
5) Run "Setup.exe" and install to a folder outside of Program Files. Install to an alternative directory such as "C:\Games\LEGO Racers\". No need for the extra installs it suggests (don't think they run anyway).
6) Right click the shortcut or exe file for "LEGO Racers" and select the same Compatibility Settings as above.
7) Run "LEGO Racers" and enjoy gaming goodness!

Scho11i 2018-12-10 4 points

I sadly cant install this game... task manager says 32-Bit setup launcher is active but nothing more is happening. I tried several comptibility modes buuut none is working...

Nkay 2018-09-28 4 points

one of my best childhood racing games. i always play with my dad and FAM.It really united us.

Deathrain 2018-09-25 2 points

LEGO Racers seems to be the most robust of the old LEGO games, compatability modes and your good to go (and tbh I don't even know wether that is needed, just did it out of habit). The game itself is one of the best, only held back by the lack of proper multiplayer (a cart-racer with only two players? Pass!). Driving physics are decent, if not as well articulated as other contemporary cart-racers. The single player cup experience is great with a nice difficulty curve. The game is relatively easy, but beating the final boss is still very statisfying. The power-ups are fun, but the speed-boosts are way too powerful for the others to matter most of the time.

Where the game really shines are the time trials, which can offer a real challenge on some tracks! If you haven't played them as child, you should try these out! Definitly worth revisiting.

viper_2029 2018-09-24 2 points

Holy crap, I've never experienced that adrenaline rush of nostalgia before. I was literally smiling throughout the whole game thinking about how fun this game was for me 20 years ago (at the age of 4). Thank you so much for this!

Susanu Mihai 2018-08-06 1 point

I love the game Lego Racers

aquiptor 2018-07-29 14 points

i got a rather simple way to fix the issu with "unable to set drain message"
got to propreties, compatibility, there's a box to choose under which compatibility you wish to run the program, pick "windows xp (service pack2)" and that's it
it worked perfectly for me after that

brickster 2018-03-20 0 point

@Racer The 'certain video file' may be missing, try reinstalling. If the problem persists you might need compatibility mode on.
