I usually choose parts and performance, and I didn't noticed anything else, such as unlocking rival's car.

Thx in advance.

EDIT: GOOD GOD how stupid I was. I didn't realize that the question marks markers were unlocking the rival's cars. If I knew, I would choose this + "Performance". S**t. It could have been an easy way to get all cars... Is there any way to revert/restore my deeds? Will i'll be able to unlock all of the cars at the end?

Well, don't feel too bad. It's not a guarantee that you would get the pink slip for your beaten rival. Not even a 1 in 3 chance because more than three possible outcomes exist. It's pure random luck.

Well, that bites... had my second crash with the game this evening.

R6025 - pure virtual function call (inside a Visual C++ dialog error box)

What really hurts is I was just about to finish one of spike strip challenges! Man, those things can be tough!

I turned on VSync recently and found it be a little better in smoothing out some of the rough spots (huge FPS shifts). Even though I see it drop from 60 to 40 or from 40 to 30 in some areas, overall, I think I like it better.

The last thing I did was to turn down the car reflection detail to nothing. That almost keeps it at a constant 60fps. Since I use the bumper cam, it doesn't effect me too bad. I can see the difference in passing cars and approaches, but I'm moving so fast most of the time, I never really notice the lack of it.

Is there a way to lock down the FPS to just 30? At that point, I'm certain I would run constant at that rate.

I started playing this and I'm upto 11 or 12, or something. Anyways I'm stuck with my crappy WV that I got in the beginning. Can't I sell it and buy another car without having another car in the garage?

You can only sell a car (in your garage) if you have at least another one that you can drive to the dealer. Remember you get only half of the stock price of the car that you are selling and all mods are ignored. Therefore I would not recommend selling a car. Just repeat some of the older races and get some money this way.

muaddib - Yes I meant the 3 question marks, behind them you can find the rivals cars. I canīt confirm it but I think when you complete the whole game to 100%, incl. 100% challenges and 100% Rep, you get a bunch of bonus cars and I think the rival cars should be included.

I finally have won the tough challenge (#69) with Camaro at heat level 7. Right at the start I made a 180 degree handbrake turn, went thru the stadium, straight towards the S corners and then to the Campus circle. I prefer the Campus circle to get rid of cops because this area has everything, 2 hidding spots, alternative routes, you can go really fast plus the cops canīt block the whole road. So I kept going in circles and waited for the right time when I got rid of the cops. When this happens you have maybe 5-10 seconds to get to the hidding spot (Campus parking garage) and then this challenge is yours.

For owners of the standard (non-black-edition) NFSMW, you can mod it into the Black Edition if you get your hands on the "INGAMEC.BUN" (located in NFSMF/Global dir) from the Black Edition and overwrite yours with it.
