Description of Star Wars: Episode I - Racer
It's been said that Star Wars Episode I – The Phantom Menace gave us two good things: Duel of the Fates and the Star Wars Episode I: Racer. Your mileage may vary, of course, but if you enjoy Star Wars and/or racing games, SWEIR has a lot to offer.
There are a multitude of different pod races, each with different specs, looks and feels, and weird aliens to pilot them (unless you choose the game's Mario, Anakin). The courses offer a wide variety of styles, from the recklessly fast circuits to those that offer twists, winds, and hairpin turns, and demand a more precise style of racing. On top of that, the environments are vividly colorful and gorgeous to look at—you might even want to sacrifice a race or two just to explore every nook and cranny of these race tracks.
Perhaps what SWEIR does best is capture the feel of the dangerously fast speeds of pod-racing. The scale is just right, and the blurring kicks in at just the right time, and it evokes that same feeling as watching the scenes from the movie—you're going fast! Maybe too fast... and one wrong move will have you into the wall at hundreds of miles per hour. It's an intense game and well worth checking out for fans of racers, even if you didn't like the Phantom Menace.

Brilliant. Got it running in Win 10 no problem. Downloaded the ISO and x64 fix. Installed from burned ISO via fix. Only problem, on first try message saying "create dxgifactory2 could not be found. solution was to rename the dxgi.dll file in the game folder to d3d11.dll. Problem solved, game runs great.

it can't find my sound card it says in the audio menu... and of course also no sound. Any way to fix this? Should I change a file or anything?

I really want to play this game, but it doesn't work on OS X. A fix would be very appreciated.

I downloaded this and even got Sheepshaver to work perfectly with OS9, but the file for Racer is just not able to run. I keep coming up against errors and warnings and nothing will run. I downloaded stuffit and Disc Copy and it still won't go. Would love some help.
