The textures in Viper Racing are limited to 256x256 pixels.
The game works with all versions of Windows 32 bit and 64 bit with my updated patch ( race.bin ).
If the game won't even start up on your pc , please explain what it does or doesn't do and I can help you out.
You don't have to run any add-on tracks or cars if you don't want to.
The original pre patched Viper Racing game was made in 1998.
All you need is the nocd "Viper Racing.exe" and the updated patch "race.bin" all available on my website http://vnovak.com
Have a nice day!

VRGT dead links thingy....
A few years back I thought "what if?" and apparently it happened now.
No worries - a while back I saved all the files they had.
Have fun guys. :)

Thanks Zero....
According to Zero's information below, I modified my 2016 race.bin so as to not always show the extra rear wing in the viper.car and ai viper cars.This new race.bin file is named "v1.2.6 2017" visible in the bottom right corner of the "options" section ( Options button on the first screen you see when you fire the game up ).If you have any problems with this file, just go back to my "v1.2.5 2016" version of the race.bin file.Just replace the one you have in your Viper Racing / Data folder.

RACE.BIN file - Modification to my post 515, 16th November 2016

The newest race.bin file was modified to always show the spoiler - rear wing - in the game, back in 2007 by Sucahyo.
That can be changed, to perform as the "original" race.bin, but it is necessary to use a hexeditor software like, HxD - Hexeditor.

Go to https://www.mh-nexus.de/en/programs.php and download HxD - Editor;
Make a backup copy of Val's latest race.bin file;
Go to http://www.sierrahelp.com/Patches-Updates/...0RacingUpdates.html and download
ViperRacing 1.2.3 Beta (VIPER123B) (ZIP file) [832KB];
Extract the race.bin file inside that zip file;
Open both race.bin files in HxD - Hexeditor;
Inside Val's race.bin file search for Offset (h) 000673D0 [line] and 07 08 [columns];
You should see values 90 90;
Modify to 74 27;
Go to ViperRacing 1.2.3 Beta race.bin;
Press Search -> Find;
Type career5 (Datatype as Text-string);
Press Ok;
(It is only this first find result that we will need)
Copy the entire information including the first "." in front of "career5" to the last "." right before word "dundas";
(Press Shift and right arrow to select all that information, then press Ctrl C)
Return to Val's race.bin file, search for "career5";
Select the first "." after "career5" to the last "." right before word "dundas";
Now click Edit -> paste write (or Ctrl B);
You should see numbers and letters in red color;
Press File -> Save as;
Type race.bin then press Save.

Be sure that your modified race.bin file has the same file size as the original one, or Viper Racing will
no longer function properly.

If all is ok, copy this new race.bin file to Viper Racing Data folder, and now game should only show spoiler when activated in game, as designed back in 1998!

yo Viperforce....
Sucahyo in the vrgt forum posted this on the 24th of Sept 2007:
"So I decide to patch the race.bin to make the s.mod wing to always show up."
That was the race.bin file I modified to make the game work with newer graphics cards and newer versions of windows. I have no idea how to hack the race.bin file to modify his entry.
So I just modified the original viper.car and removed the optional rear wing.

hey Val, nice site, i got Viper Racing working on WIN 10 64 bit thanks to the RACE.BIN file. I have a question though. Why do all of the vipers have Spoilers like a VIPER GTS-R. I dont remember them all having a spoiler back in the day. is there a way to get rid of them?
