Nascar 3 Hints
PC | Submitted by Hector CruzCompetetive races without having to change OPPS(Opponent strength)
Are you tired of having to change the opposition strength in the race menu every time you race at a different track?
Here's what to do:
First, set the opps within the game to 100%
say were racing at Atlanta. Go to the Atlanta Track directory(/nascar3/tracks/atlanta)Create copies of ATLANTA.TXT(or whatever the track name is) and RECORDS.TXT in the same directory. open the Atlanta.TXT Scroll down the arcane Capital letter words like TNAME, SPEEDW, LENGT. There are only a couple linesw you can change without inviting Armaggedon. LAPS:how many laps are in a full length race
QUAL:how many qualifying laps there are. DONT CHANGE THE FIRST NUMBER. THERE SHOULD BE TWO. the first number is only a place-holder.
BLAP:The average qualifying time for the computer cars, x 1000(so if the times are 23.456 secoonds, they would show up as 23456)Find your average qual time and enter this in to be able to qualify near the middle of the pack.
RELS:Same as opposition strength(if you had both RELS and OPPS at 97%, the cars would travel at 97% of 97%, or 94% at that track)

To win easy just turn off damage then put the laps way down and put the cars way down. then you can go backwards and take out the rest of the field then just finish the race and have no worries.

Note: This involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Enter the game directory and find the "tracks/taladega/taladega.txt" file. Use a text editor to edit this file. Locate the line that starts with "SPDWY" and change the first number from "1" to "0". Speeds over 230 miles an hour may now be obtained.

All you need to do is go to car setup. Then go to wedge and put all the weight on the inside. after that you can do whatever you normally do. When you race, if you get to a turn go to the outside and crash into the cars on the inside.

If you go a track folder, their will be a text file for each track like
this "trackname.txt". Open it up with a text editor. Look for the line that
says CARS. Change both number to 44. This will give you 43 cars, which is the
max for that track. So now you can have 43 cars at ever track. Also if their
are two pits on the track their will be a PIT and PIT2 look at them and you
will see a single double digit number change these on both lines to 22. This
will even out the pits for the track. If not all the extra cars will pit on
the back pit. This makes your pit nice to pit in, but can cause cars on the
back pit to jam up. If a jam happens then the race will not end.
2: You can also create your own seasons by editing the one's provided by the
game. These will be in the main folder called NASCAR3. Look for a file called
"nascar.cal". Open it up in a text editor. You will see 5 numbers for each
track like so:
1 3 7 0 0
first number: The race number, so the above would be the first race of the
second number: The month of the race.
third number: The day of the race.
forth number: ???? Not sure on this one ????
fifth number: 0 is a day race and a 1 is a night race.
After the number will be the name of the track in all caps. Then the event
name twice followed by how many laps you will race in the race. What ever the
laps is here overrides what is in the txt file for any track. Then there will
be the two image files for used for track info when starting a race.
