For people who are having trouble mounting the IMG file, try converting it to an ISO. I made an open-source converter called ccd2iso specifically so I could play this game, but there's also freeware tools for disc authoring that can mount .img files.

Works fine in win 10 64 bit when using English and the modern patch. Use deamon tools to mount image on windows 10. Then copy the content of the mounted image to a folder then copy the modern patch on top and you are good to go.

Runs well on my Windows XP system, though the graphics is not as good as it was when I played it 15 years back with a graphics card. Maybe they'll have emulators for old graphics cards some day. :) Haven't found away to run it on my Windows 10 laptop, though.

What I really like about this game is the set of features that I could not find in much later games (e.g., Need for Speed Hot Pursuit (2010),) such as replay and mirrored tracks. Despite the better graphics in modern games, I prefer this one because of its beautiful locations and pure gameplay. The newer games just do not feel so "nice."

To change the language simply change it in the nfs3.ini config file.

Use the NFS4 Modern Patch on newer Windows systems.

Aentik 2018-08-27 -2 points

indeed it happened to me running on Win 10 32 the menú and the way i start the game yeah it runs but after any mode you play arcade, knockout , career you finish your one race and the game gets you out to win again!!! i still ask why NFS hs has so many issues and NFS 3 HP i can run it perfect i mean its older and with less issues Unfair!!! :( cause so love this game alot more tHan 3!!

Titas21 2018-08-13 2 points

It works on win 2000 but there is a problem when i enable directx it doesn t save single player arcade when i left the game.

FiSH 2018-08-04 0 point

Tested it on Win 10 32 bit with patched installer:
German doesn't work, because the application can't load german speak files of the cops. The program breaks down in that case.

So I tried again in English... I can maybe drive one race and in the main menu I get always an exception and the program breaks down. This is annoying :-(

Titas21 2018-08-04 0 point

So now I know what the problem is I can't turn on car shading. Have any ideas???

Titas21 2018-08-04 0 point

It works, on Windows 2000 but there is a problem. Can you tell me how to make cars look better. I don't know how to remove those nasty black windows on cars.

Earthshine 2018-08-03 1 point

To create ISO file out of downloaded files, do I have to convert or add files to iso image?

FiSH 2018-08-03 1 point

Works great, but the patched installer mixes languages:
choosing - installing
English - English
Italian - French
French - German
German - Italian
Spanish - Spanish
Swedish - Swedish

PATCHNFS.EXE is lowly flagged as Malware on VirusTotal, 2/67.
Totally safe for sure.
