Description
Demo version of Need for Speed II
Old test results
The test results for this version are very old, and as such they may not represent the current state of Wine. Please consider submitting a new test report.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)

What works
Installing downloaded demo, the game itself, sound and music, gameplay, completing the only track.


What does not

­Strangely, the menu (not the gameplay) performance is terrible - the mouse moves around awfully.


The game chooses really strange resolution "640x512" and there is no chance to change it as far as I­ know. Thus, the lower part of the screen is filled with garbage while in menu.


The game doesn't work with Wine's built-in libs, I've used the directx with winetricks.


The game starts once in a few times only - sometimes it may give a blank screen. The best option is restart it then.


The game is really choppy when running on a SMP machine (multicore) - see the warning below, I've used the "schedtool" and it worked much better.


What was not tested
Multiplayer, using joysticks.


Additional Comments

Video board is GeForce 9400GT, using proprietary driver (190.42).

Warning: owners of multi-core/cpu systems beware

If you try to run this game on a system that has multiple cores or cpus it probably won't work. The game appears to suffer from some issues that manifest themselves when run on multiple cores.

If you want this game to work well it appears you need a single cpu system or to be able to limit your system that way.  schedtool is a program which will let you run wine on 1 cpu, eg. schedtool -a 0x1 -e wine nfsw.exe


 
Glide Version
Glide version need a Wrapper to work and updated nfs2sea.exe (found HERE).

I'm use dgVoodo with this configuration:

RenderAPI: Direct3D9
Display Driver: Direct3D9 HAL
Screen Mode: windowed mode
D3D Textures bit depth: 32 bits
texture options: autogenerate mipmaps
LFB access: Enable FSB access (use hardware cache buffers when poss, use fastwrite for unmatching formats)
ColorKeying Method: Native
Texture Mem Size: 65536KB
Resolution: 1024x768
Gamma Correction: 100%
Miscellaneeous: force triple buferring, use hardware vertex buffers, enable glide-gammaramp

Note: Full screen mode not work for me with dgvoodo, but windowed mode with the same resolution of display, show game in fullscreen.
