I don't think that first link is working, the ftp one. I tried it in FF and IE no go. Anyone else?

Me too! It starts off with the car going over guardrail, then rewinds and shows the race.

Its the same demo as the one 360 owners got and it performs just as bad. With all settings maxed out @ 1280x1024 (no widescreen res of course..usual EA) and 4x AA I get fps in the teens. With AA off I get fps in the 20's. Unacceptable. I suppose I could tone down shadows or whatever but I'm much rather uninstall this dump.

Well then, I'll be hopping out of this line and into line for the Total War 2 Gold demo.

Which cars do you get to drive in the demo?

Exotic: Lamborghini Gallardo
Tuner: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR- Edition
Muscle: Chevy Camaro SS


You can "autosculpt" each car..sorta like morphing the parts.

They sure waited a long time to release this demo, the games coming out in a few days :(

I saw a commercial for it on TV yesterday too.

Graphically it doesn't look that much better than Most Wanted.:thumbdwn:

Nothing can touch High Stakes or Hot Pursuit. At least not MW or Carbon imo. High Stakes and Hot Pursuit were just 10x better. I remember racing on one keyboard/2 people with split view. Ah the old days.

I get an error at the installation:
"Installation cannot continue because this game requires DirectX 0 or higher to be installed on your system".

I already have DirectX 9.0c October, anyone found a solution for this?

I got that error too. Put the setup.exe in Windows 2000 compatibility mode. That worked for me.

This will be the first NFS I'm skipping entirely. I don't even think I'll give them that satisfaction of a DL hit. Do yourselves a favor and wait for Test Drive Unlimited from the same Dev's that made NFSPU as well as the V-Rally games.

I lost the compatability setting, I think it's a service I disabled, does anyone know which one that is? :)

on all EA games you should install them in Win 2000 compatibility mode. EA obviously doesn't care that their installer is broke. It has been that way for years now.

The racing is ok. But I find it annoying that none of my car settings or race progress gets saved in the demo. Also I must reconfigure my joystick every time which sucks..
