Me too. I've been waiting far too long for NFS to return to daylight. NFSU 2 was pretty cool, but that night-time street racing in the ghetto started to get to me.

It is awesome that we have a fun racer coming to the PC, and it looks good too.

I lowered all ingame settings to the middle, 1024, turned off music (only radio chatter and engine sounds work), and that seemed to boost my fps by maybe 10fps, if at all, it was noticeable but not worth the lost of IQ. So Im running maxed out at 1280, and get a very similar frame rate with no AA or maxed out AA (ingame). This game feels as if it was playing around 25-35fps at the maxed out settings, and thats with a 6800nu (unlocked @ 350/800). Seems to have an odd fps behaviour.

But thats a very very good demo. Its mad fun and will stay on my HD until I get the retail version of the game.

Yeah, this demo is real buggy. I absolutly cannot play the game with my NYKO Airflow EX controller or else it will freeze up while loading the level. Also, I can't even pull 1600x1200, even with the registry changes. I realy really hope they fix this crap with the final version.

download that.

set the in-game resolution back to 640*480
rename the game executable to speed2.exe
launch theuniversal patcher, select needforspeed underground2 in the dropdown. search for the executable.

change the resolution to whatever you want. hit the patch button.

start the game. dont change the in-game resolution, leave it as is. enjoy
That app worked great but a warning to all who try it. Make sure you have AA multisampling or supersampling disabled in the display driver before trying this. If you have it enabled you will get heavy graphics corruption on the screen.

It worked fine for me with AA enabled. Of course, the framerate is pretty bad at 1920x1200. I was in the teens and 20s through a lot of it. It looked great though.

1920x1200 screenshots

Thanks for the info. I think I'm going to try that patcher on NFSU2 also.

Just so you guys know. The demo works great with the xbox 360 controller for pc. One little annoying thing tho is there seems to be no dead zone and the slightest move to the left or right of the joystick causes the car to move.

Normal AA does work with this patch but enable multisampling in the display driver control panel and try to play the game. You'll see what I'm talking about.
