What works

- installation (installer does not detect a 3DFX card with nGlide installed so I had to install the Direct3D version) - 3DFX version with nGlide (installed the 1.09V patch before trying the game to get f1voo.exe) - intro videos - game menus - gameplay works but it is unplayable SLOW (speeds up for a moment at race start but then time slows down to about 1/10 of real time including the race clock.)

What does not

- time runs too slow (at least in the 3DFX version with nGlide) - Direct3D version blocks at "Direct 3D card selection" prompt where clicking either "OK" or "Quit" button does absolutely nothing


What was not tested

- joystick or racing wheel (didn't bother since the game is basically unplayable)

Additional Comments

There are graphics bugs (boxes around text characters) when setting a higher resolution than 640x480 in nGlide (v1.02). I cannot verify if this is a problem with Windows as well. The game was released in 1997 with tracks and teams (except Jacques Villeneuve has been replaced with Driver X because of licensing issues) from season 1996. Later in 1999 (guessing from the file dates on the CD) it was re-release with a slightly different name "Racing 1 Simulation" after Ubisoft lost the FIA license. The re-release is pretty much exactly the same game except it is without FIA logos and real driver names.
