What works


What does not

fullscreening at 640x480 doesn't work well, so use 800x600 or greater or run it with desktop-emulation enabled in winecfg


run it under 800x600 or enable desktop emulation to prevent fullscreening problems like screen-cut bug

Additional Comments

TESTED: US 1.0 RELEASE w/ 1.4 patch

how to install:

0- first you must install gcdemu

1- mount cd1
2- start full instalation
3- create a new device and mount cd2 (this is because installer will refuse to recognize cd2)
4- continue instalation

note: if you try to run game without crack or even using DEViANCE crack for 1.0, game will refuse to start, so DON'T USE this crack with nfsu running under wine

5- download 1.4 patch from here:

6- then appy SPiRiTY patch (you will find it on gamecopyworld)

game will run but with a little window bug when you're into a race (winehq will make a window-mode like desktop mode every time you get into a race.

#first temporal solution: use desktop emulation enabled when you're going to play NFS Underground
(just to prevent the "screen-cut" bug)

#second FIX: set game resolution to 800x600 or greater
(it fixes the fullscreen problems)
