|Latest Wine Version Tested:||1.8.1|
Maintainers: About Maintainership
The game correctly installs and runs. You can do all of the races and a lot of the customizations flawlessly. The game ran fluently in medium graphical settings on my laptop (Core i5, NVIDIA NVS 3100m (NVIDIA binary driver), 4GB DDR3). I did have to use Winetricks for VCrun2005 and 2008 (I also did d3dx9 but the game had me install DirectX9 from the disk anyway).
What does not
For some reason, I could not add vinyls to my cars...when attempting to change the position of the vinyl, the shadow updates but the vinyl stays in its place. But that's a very minor detail, considering everything else works.
What was not tested
Everything was tested.
For some reason I could not get this to work on the x86_64 release of Arch Linux, and I don't really know why. The game complains about not being available for my processor architecture. My guess is that I'm missing a lib32 file from the multilib but I don't know. Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions.

follow the how to and you will have no problem
for this game to work perfectly you need d3dx9 and vcrun2005 and 2008 and dotnet20 to be installed using winetrick which can be found on this link http://winezeug.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/winetricks
then copy what you see in that page then paste it in an empty file then right click on that file and then click on permission tab then check the box that said allow to be excuted as program then run that file. after that you will get a list of applications install the things that i mention above

1. send as many "background" processes to a single specific core, I use last 2 threads
2. (I use 2 separate X servers, one for general things and one for games)
send the gaming X server to a dedicated thread that is not used by anything else (only 1 thread)
and make sure nothing else is running on that core, I use thread 0
3. send the game (using, for example $ taskset -c 2,3 wine nfsc.exe) to a different dedicated core that is not used by anything else but make sure to use the hyperthreading from that core, tests show that a single thread causes stutter
this solution was tested on a quad cpu with hyperthreading, it may not have the same effect on a processor with less cores or with no HT, im guessing gamers have high performance gaming hardware, so i7 cpu's
as an added bonus, you could launch the game and it's X server with -20 niceness, not sure how useful this would be if you have already achieved complete process separation, but if you didn't - niceness could help you, you could also use schedtool with RR at PRIO 1 for the X server, don't use it for the game or it will freeze your entire box
you can use GALLIUM_HUD to help you diagnose stutter and other performance problems with some command like:
# GALLIUM_HUD=fps,cpu0+cpu1+cpu2+cpu3+cpu4+cpu5+cpu6+cpu7+cpu8 su -c nonrootusername nice -n-20 taskset -c 2,3 wine nfsc.exe
GALLIUM_HUD is only for open source display driver users
