Oh come on, cruising around with gangsta rap I had Berlin - Take my breath away on while parked on the beach in my mustang convertable, that was quite an experience for a computer game

Im about to install it on my dual boot, and run it on xp then I think.
Is there an NVNews club yet? or shall we make one?

Now, what do i do when i get online? look for a NVNews house or something?
I think someone has to invite you before you can get in the club-house, then you go to your home to view the news and accept the invite, and finally, you use the map (go to location mode) and look for the "couch" icon to go straight there. He'll (we'll) need your username to do that, btw. Probably be good to PM agentkay to ask him for the invite. I'm not sure if other members can do it or not although that option did seem to be active for me in the menu.

The "club-house" doesn't actually say nvnews or anything since it also gets used by other people but I believe it'll say Nvnews on the map.

That didn't happen with mine. I had to uinstall the digital version before installing the boxed copy and that process went fine. Is that supposed to only happen with the boxed copy or something?

Anyone that wants the join the Nvnews club, just PM me your in-game name and a time and location where we can meet in-game. The problem is that I can only send club invites once the person is in my friendlist and the only way to add a person to the friendlist, is by meeting them inside the game. Once you are in my friendlist (which needs some patience because TDU cycles thru servers every 10 seconds or so), I will send the club invite ASAP, and then you can accept it inside your house, just like OWA said.

I will try to hold a spot open for you. Every club is limited to 16 members but if the interest in the club should be big, we will just open a second Nvnews club.

I don't want to dig through the whole thread, but the textures are a bit, I dunno, meh.....is the Xbox360 looking better?

Is there any tweakguide out there for the game? There are only 3 detail settings, there must be more to tweak? Make it look so much better?
