    Get bootcamp and install Windows XP or 7 on your Mac. Run NR2003 in bootcamp

    Get your disk out and put the regular NASCAR 2003 file back on. I just re-installed the game on my Mac (OS 10.6) and had the same issue you did.

    No, it'll be the un-patched, original version. However, if your concern is being able to run mods, you still can. The patch wasn't needed for that.

    The only thing I've discovered so far that the patch actually fixes is a weird overheating issue the cars had when I tested it. Otherwise, I wasn't able to access the options menu.

    Another problem I still have, is that I can only select cars for myself on the Player Info menu for the default cup cars. Any other mod won't show up, thus allowing the game to freak out and crash because I didn't select a player car.

    You might be at the end of the line then. The software was written for a much older OS that probably had many of its features it relied on written out as Lion came to be.

    Are you just trying to run the basic, clean installation?

    Already tried the patch from there- had the same problem.

    I think what we're running into is the game engine was built for a Mac G4 and G5 processor. I saw some tips via Google about installing the game on a PC and copying the files over, merging them with the N2003 Mac demo. Might give that a try and see if the PC files help clear anything up or not.
