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

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.

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?
