Just a heads-up that you can natively install this game on Linux.
It's recommended to use this version instead of WINE in order to avoid incompatibilities, performance issues, headaches and benefit from improvements like better multiplayer and gamepad support.
You can find the source code, along with detailed instructions on how to install it on the project's GitHub page.
Note 1: It will require the original game's data files in order to be able to launch the game.
Note 2: This port will only work for the NFS 2 SE version and is hardcoded to always use 3dfx.
How to Install
Â 1. Change Windows version in winecfg to Windows 95/98 (installation crashes with 2008/Vista/2003/XP/2000)Â
Â 2.Â Go to Drivers tab and add drive D. Redirect the drive to path where your CD is mounted, for example: /media/Nfsiise/
Â 3. Install by wine ./SETUP/ENGLISH/SETUP.EXE and not by AUTORUN.EXE
Â 4.Â Case occurs the message Hardware not detected, ignore and press ok until the installation continues normally.
How to Play
1. Change back Windows version to XP 2. Download fix utility from HERE 3. Run the fix on game directory: $ wine pe.exe nfs2sen.exe 4. Install schedtool (read "Freezing/crashing" note) 5. Run NFS2 by: $ schedtool -a 0x1 -e wine nfs2sen.exe 6. Ignore message Your hard drive has less than 1MB free space case occurs. 7. Enjoy!
Install with: # apt-get install schedtool if you use Ubuntu, or # pacman -S schedtool if you use Arch Linux
$ wget http://freequaos.host.sk/schedtool/schedtool-1.1.2.tar.bz2 $ tar xf schedtool-1.1.2.tar.bz2 $ cd schedt* $ sudo make install run nfs by:$ schedtool -a 0x1 -e wine nfs2sen.exe
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/NFS2/Download the fix program: Run the fix program against the main executable:
$ wine pe.exe nfs2sen.exe
The glide version needs a Wrapper in order to work, and updated nfs2sea.exe (found HERE). I'm using 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 does not work for me with dgvoodo, but windowed mode with the display's resolution, shows the game in fullscreen.
