Works very well, except for a bug in wine which requires the use of schedtool on SMP systems.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
To play this 3DFX version of this game, I recommend installing the glide wrapper available here: http://www.zeckensack.de/glide/
Native version

Keep in mind that there is an unofficial open-source native version of this game (but only with 3dfx) available on this GitHub page.


In most cases it's better to run this version instead of the original, avoiding possible incompatibility issues and benefiting from new things, like updated gamepad and multiplayer support.


Note: It will still require the original game files in order to run.

How to Install and Play

How to Install

 1. Change Windows version in winecfg to Windows 95/98 (installation crashes with 2008/Vista/2003/XP/2000) 

 2.  Go to Drivers tab and add drive D. Redirect the drive to path where your CD is mounted, for example: /media/Nfsiise/

 3. Install by wine ./SETUP/ENGLISH/SETUP.EXE and not by AUTORUN.EXE

 4.  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!
Glide Version
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.
