Additional Comments

If you wanna use Wine Version 1.3.24 , just desactivated "internal rearview" But if you wanna use the "internal rearview" , you need use old version of Wine , Minumin Version 1.1.22 , Maximun Version 1.1.30 Okey , im using PlayOnLinux , and much versions of Wine , for Test Games I test this Game With The Follows Wine Versions : This version show a Box with the follow text : "Internal Errors - Invalid parameters received" - Just click "close" to continue 1.1.0 - No Sound , Intro View , Hang , Need Force Close 1.1.22 - This version run all things i describe 1.1.28 - This version run all things i describe 1.1.29 - This version run all things i describe 1.1.30 - This version run all things i describe 1.1.31 - Internal rearview issue 1.1.34 - Internal rearview issue 1.1.40 - Internal rearview issue 1.1.43 - Internal rearview issue 1.1.44 - Internal rearview issue 1.2.3 - Internal rearview issue 1.2-rc1 -Internal rearview issue This versions show a Box with :"Program Error" 1.3.8 - Internal rearview issue 1.3.9 - Internal rearview issue 1.3.21 - Internal rearview issue , Keyboard dont respond in game 1.3.22 - Internal rearview issue 1.3.23 - Internal rearview issue 1.3.24 - Internal rearview issue ============================================================= Well you can make the game works really nice , but i think the better idea its the game have a prefix , if you can , install the game using PlayOnLinux and Wine 1.1.30. Or copy needed files of "/home/user/.wine" to where you wanna a prefix like "/home/user/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/NFS6_HP2" if this folder dont exist , just created. Now run : wine regedit inside the wine regedit go to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D" and make the follow strings DirectDrawRenderder : opengl useGLSL : enable VideoMemorySize : 32 MB ( or more if you have ) OffscreenRenderingMode : fbo (external) or pbuffer (integrated) RenderTargetLockMode : auto Multisampling : no MouseWarpOverride : enable (if you want) I think its better if you see an ScreenShot : For better Gameplay i prefer set desktop resolution to 800x600 , just meanwhile i play , when i close the game , restore resolution , for that you can use "xrandr" Now you can copy this example , to make your own script : PATH="/home/inukaze/.PlayOnLinux/WineVersions/1.1.30/usr/bin/:$PATH" export WINEPREFIX="/home/inukaze/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/NFS6_HP2" export WINEDEBUG="-all" cd "/home/inukaze/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/NFS6_HP2/drive_c/Program Files/EA Games/Need For Speed 6 Hot Pursuit 2" xrandr -s 800x600 wine nfshp2.exe xrandr -s YOURxRESOLUTION Just copy that , edit , and save , set execution permission , now you can run the game With Old Versions of Wine : From 1.1.22 To 1.1.30 . The Anothers Versions, i test , the game have a strange Lag With Frameskiping.

HowTo / Notes


I copied whole CD to HD, edit /autorun/autorun.cfg and changed EReg=1 and IEVersion=4.0 to EReg=0 and IEVersion=  and then start setup.exe, with that installation goes smooth:).

 Starting: CD must be in drive and then started his AutoRun.exe. (or you can use nocd patcher, but avoid running NfsHP2.exe directly !)
 Game menu: Cars, menu tree in Hot Pursuit, Championship, etc. not shown:(
 Playing: Very smooth, with some graphics problems (no tires), Special Efects and World Detail work with any settings, but Car Detail must be on low (with any other whole car not shown in the game)
 Sound: Perfect with OSS or Alsa, but with emulation (if your card doesnt has hardware mixer, because alsa dmix really sucks)

 Some messages from console, when in menu:
 fixme:d3d_texture:IWineD3DBaseTextureImpl_ApplyStateChanges >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GL_INVALID_VALUE (0x501) from glTexParameteri GL_TEXTURE_MAX_ANISOTROPY_EXT ... @ basetexture.c / 463

 and when actually start some race and play it, constantly give this:
fixme:d3d:get_src_and_opr Unhandled texture argWINED3DTA_SPECULAR
