Cars: Hi-Octane Edition is the primary product of the various research documented here.

AboutEdit

Cars: Hi-Octane Edition is a community-made modification (mod) for the PC version of Cars: Mater-National Championship, a racing game, sequel of Cars: The Video Game, released in 2007 that was based off of the Cars movie. The mod has not been completed yet, and perhaps it will continue to be updated until it has reached the best quality possible.

The general goal for the project is to combine multiple elements from Cars, Cars: Mater-National Championship and Cars: Race-O-Rama into one product and create a great mod that lots of people can enjoy and play. Though the primary focus of the mod at this point in time is the Arcade Race mode, we hope to eventually edit the mini-games and story mode. The mod is currently known to be safe: it doesn't have any viruses.

You should read our rules before you post any comments or edit the article, as you may be blocked if you do not follow them. If you find any bugs, don't hesitate to tell us - we'll try our best fix it and release a patch if necessary. To report a bug, visit our Cars: Hi-Octane Edition Bugs and post in the comments. We'll add the bug to the list from that point. If you want to request paint jobs to add to the mod, go to the paint job request page, and if you want to talk about other topics, you have to go in our forum.

DownloadEdit

Version 1.9.1 of Cars: Hi-Octane Edition was released on August 7, 2015. This release provides several patches to address issues that were present in the last version.

Please keep in mind that an English PC copy of Cars: Mater-National Championship is required in order to run the mod.

  • Download version 1.9.1 here

To ensure that the mod is successfully installed, the correct procedure has been provided below:

  1. Once you click "Download" on the Mediafire page, a compressed .ZIP titled either "HiOctaneV9patch1" should download.
  2. Open the .zip and then extract the files to your "Cars: Mater-National" directory (wherever you installed the game to during the initial setup).
  3. A box should come up asking if you'd like to overwrite some of the files. Click "Yes". Please note that it may take a few minutes for the entire thing to finish, so we ask that you remain patient.
  4. Start your game and create a new save file.
  5. If there are more characters and tracks in the Arcade menu, this means that the mod has been successfully installed.

Version 1.9.2.1 of Cars: Hi-Octane Edition was released on December 25th, 2016. This release includes a lot of new paintjobs (including Wii and PS3 versions exclusives), improved some textures, 4 new characters and all Cars Toon alts for Mia and Tia and fixed almost all tracks from the first Cars game (fixed bugs like invisible or missing objects and collision data, blinking textures, broken finish line, some crashes and freezes).

  • Download version 1.9.2.1 here

To install it, you must follow the instructions inside the file called "Installation Instructions".

Frequently Asked QuestionsEdit

Q: What characters are planned for future releases?

A: Currently, the only characters planned are the remaining characters from Cars: Race-O-Rama. Each character will be added to the mod once they have enough alternate paint jobs and an icon to be considered "completed".

Q: What tracks are planned for future releases?

A: The remainder of the Cars tracks are all planned to be released eventually. Additionally, some Race-O-Rama tracks are still in text format, so they can be ported as well, but it is not guaranteed that they will be added.

Q: How come Version 1.9 of the mod was released so much later than previous updates?

A: Contrary to popular belief, it had nothing to do with delays or anything similar. It was decided from the start that updates would start to be more spaced out, allowing more time for modders to complete new content.

Q: When will the mod see a "final release"?

A: The "final release" will consist of all cars from Cars though Cars: Race-O-Rama, all tracks from Cars and Cars: Mater-National and a variety of paintjobs for each character. The only unfinished element that may be left in the final release is localization. v2.0 will likely be considered the first 'final' version, but the mod might still be updated to include more content. But it is unknown if v2.0 will be released.

Q: Will you add characters from Cars 2: The Videogame?

A: It might happen, but in the very far future because we need to add all Cars: The Video Game and Cars: Race-O-Rama contents first and make them run without any crashes.
