Unused Graphics

Character Icons

Located in DataPC/C/UI/Tex:

Placeholder icons respectively for Luigi, Phillip (that uses Lightning), Giovanni and Ramone.

Icons for Guido, Frank and Lizzie, despite the fact that they don't participate in races.

Carsmaternational icon MODT a.png

icon_MODT_a.dds through icon_MODT_d.dds are four identical copies of what appears to be an earlier model of Lizzie.

Carsmaternational icon STAN a.png

Bizarrely, despite only appearing as a statue (and not being seen alive until the Cars Toons short Time Travel Mater five years later), Stanley has a character icon at icon_STAN_a.dds.

Screens

Carsmaternational credits.png

credits.dds is a temporary credits screen, found in DataPC/C/UI/Tex.

control_presets_one_X360.dds and control_presets_two_X360.dds are controller button diagrams leftover from the Xbox 360 version of the game found in DataPC/E/UI/Tex.

While these loading screens for each hub world are used in the console versions, the Windows version simply uses the default loading screen (load_logo.dds) instead.

DataPC/C/UI contains leftover loading screens for every single minigame from Cars: The Video Game, including these three obvious placeholders for both cheat-activated minigames as well as one that didn't make it into the game at all.

Temporary menu screen icons, also found in DataPC/C/UI/Tex.

Scenery

Carsmaternational Luigi Posters.png

Luigi_Posters.dds in DataPC/C/Scenes/LUI_Int/Tex is a placeholder texture for the posters seen in Luigi's Casa Della Tires with the word "Standin" plastered over them, apparently depicting an earlier design for Giovanni. The used texture is named Luigi_Posters_correct.dds.

Character Textures

Carsmaternational Fil Body A.png

Fil_Body_A.dds is an unused texture for Filmore, tinted orange and with the text "Fil Temp Tex1" written on his back and roof.

Unused Music

Present among the other music files is UI_MUSIC.ogg, which is an unused electronic remix of "Radiator Springs Theme" by Bruno Coon. It could have been used on the main menu, which the game substitutes for the regular theme instead.
