F1 Championship Season 2000 actually does work under Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger) with QuickTime 7.6.4 installed! I've tested this on a Power Mac G4 (Digital Audio, 533MHz), and no issues were found!

I re-uploaded the F1 MOD file. It did not have the parts I thought it had to be able to run. It is fully functioning now and just unarchive and drag to your applications folder to play. Sorry for the broken install.

Further testing of this game was done on my newly acquired eMac G4 1.25 GHz running Mac OS X 10.3.4 with QuickTime 6.5.1, and no issues were found during the test.

I will post the beta and the 1.0.2 and 1.0.3 updates in a few days. I also can throw up here my patched version with updated effects from the PC. They in crude increase textures, reflections and other small fixes.

Files posted.

Works well on an Indigo iMac G3 (2000, 350MHz) running Mac OS 9.2.2 with QuickTime 6.0.3 as a minimum requirement, and on a Power Mac G4 (MDD 2003) running Mac OS X 10.2.8 with QuickTime 6.5.1 for improved performance. No issues found.

This also runs perfectly fine in Rosetta/10.6.8. I have run it on a 2009 Macbook Pro with 2.4ghz cpu, 4GB ram and 9600GT with 512mb VRAM.

Thanks for uploading! To the best of my knowledge, this is the most recent PPC Mac Formula 1 game. Plays nice despite it's age. And I get to drive as Heinz Harald Frenzen again. Yay! Smile

Nice to see this up here. If I knew it was ok to post I could have had this up ages ago.
