Additional Comments

Game runs withought serious problem, except resolution changing. Some note for widescreen monitor users: The game does'nt support widescreen resolution. There is one way to set up any resolution, if you have widescreen monitor using UniWS patch. It can be downloaded from here: There is only one widescreen patch working under wine. Officialy Most Wanted don't support in this patcher. To putch the game for custum resolution you have to rename original speed.exe to speed2.exe, select Neeed for Speed Underground 2 in patcher and change resolution to native for your desctop (for ex. 1600x900). You need to setup resolution 640x480 in game. After that, you can rename speed2.exe to speed.exe. It works!
