What works




lan play

What does not

change resolution,but it has a fix. Set 640x480 inside the game.Rename the speed.exe to speed2.exe and use uniws.exe. Select NFSUG 2 and patch the resolution. Name speed2.exe back to speed.exe and enjoy.


What was not tested

Race with an EA account(I don't think the servers are even working,but you have game ranger play)

Additional Comments

You need to install the directx9 from the command line. $ winetricks directx9 For lan play you need to install game rangers. I tryed to manage races successfully,but if I finished too behind,the lanplay connection ends.I didn't try joining to another play(so far I can remember). I have enabled CSMT and EAX. It can avoid problems with the audio and improve graphics. I used the oibaf drivers for the intel gpu. Usinge XFCE Desktop Environment
