Cars, guns, playground insults and multiplayer madness. Mashed has all these ingredients in spades. Up to four players can duke it out on the racetrack and win by fair means or foul.
To install Mashed, do not use the autorun on the CD. Instead, explore the contents of the CD in Computer and double click on the “Setup.exe” file. Mashed will then install without any issues on modern PCs.
Running the game
The installer will create shortcuts to a file called “Launch.exe”. If you find that you cannot start the game, browse to the Mashed installation directory and try the “MASHED.exe” file instead. Unfortunately we were not able to get this title running on our Windows 8 or Windows 7 PC. The game would start, then lock up on a white screen. Forcing our way back to the desktop, the game displayed an error that it “could not find output pin!”. Typically this is a media player error and we suspect the game is failing when trying to play the introduction movie.
One workaround for this problem is to use a dual-boot system. We found that a copy of Windows XP, running on exactly the same hardware, was able to play Mashed without any issues. A 32 bit version of Windows 7 also ran the game, though in this operating system we had to browse to the games directory and run the “Mashed.exe” program in order to start the game.
