NASCAR Racing 2002 System Reqs Updated
8:49 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media wrote in this morning with more information on the recently announced title NASCAR Racing 2002 Season. They've given the system requirements for the game as well as letting us know the official Mac site will be available later today. Here are the miminum requirements for the game:

  • Mac OS X only
  • 256MB of Memory
  • G4 processor at 733 MHz or faster (Dual Processors supported, 500Mhz x2 or above)
  • 4X CD-ROM (16X recommended)
  • Hard Drive, with 665 MB minimum free space
  • 3D Graphic Acceleration or better ((ATI Radeon/NVidia GeForce2 or faster, MX series not supported)

    Multiplayer Requirements:

  • Internet and LAN (TCP/IP) play supported
  • Internet play requires a 56 Kbps or faster
Duane Johnson, the Westlake Interactive programmer who did the port, has commented in the IMG forums for those with concerns on the requirements. Westlake president Glenda Adams also sends word the GeForce2 MX cards are playable with the game, and she expects to see the requirements updated again to reflect the fact:
The game definitely DOES work on GeForce2mx/4mx cards. I've been playing it on several 733/2mx's and iMacs and it looks perfectly fine.
Chris Silman at Aspyr also informed IMG the multiplayer is Mac-only, for those who were curious. Aspyr is looking into porting the PC demo of the game as well, but acccording to Silman it "is still to be determined."

[Ed] The article has been reposted today for those who might have missed the system requirements being updated late yesterday afternoon.
