Makes the full game a universal binary for compatibility with both PowerPC and Intel Macs.
Driven to succeed, Lightning McQueen the hotshot rookie race-car is headed across country to take on the Piston Cup Championship. But along the way, McQueen gets sidetracked in the sleepy town of Radiator Springs — where he gets to know some of the most offbeat characters around. And where they help him realize there are more important things than trophies and fame.
So fasten your seat belt and get ready for wildly fast and funny adventures with all your favorite characters from the Disney/Pixar blockbuster “Cars.”

Though I can download the file, I haven't tried it to see if the patch fixes the crash problem I encountered.

Thanks very mcuh to Chris for your directions. I am now able to launch the game on my MacBookPro and my child is delighted. Just to clarify for all other users who are having difficulties; Install the Cars game followed by the Intel patch. After mounting the Cars game DVD, use a free utility such as Onyx or Main Menu to show invisible files. Go to Macintosh HD (in the sidebar) and you will see a folder named Volumes. Open this folder and look for the Cars DVD icon. Make an alias of this within the same (Volumes) folder and rename it as DISC2 (note no space between DISC and 2). This alias will remain invisible within the Macintosh HD>Volumes folder. Hide the invisible files with the same utility (Onyx, Main Menu etc) and launch the game. It should now work properly.

I'm trying to instal the pacht in my new Toshiba Notebook with an Intel® 945GM Express chipset, but when I start the patch it breaks with the message "The update must be run by the same user that istalled the game" I've got just one user, please could someone help me?

To mik-e-mouse, Roberto and others... I don't think that it is easy to answer all of your questions here (not exactly the purpose anyway). May I suggest that you follow the link to the HardMac.com forum where it will be the best place to discuss these issues? See you there ;)
