Need for Speed Underground 2 network games

Q: Need for Speed Underground 2 network games

I have 2 computers in my house ones my dad's and the other is obviously mine. Um I've come across a problem with networking them so that my friend and I can play NFSU2 over the network. There's one small problem however they can't "see" each other. I can get AOE2-3, Rise of Nations, and one other game I can't remember right now work direct ip and with AOE3 game scanning similar to what NFSU2 uses and work just fine. Question is why won't it work for this game?

I've seen posts regarding similar problems with this game but nothing I extracted from them for this problem worked.

So can any one help as you can see from my computer specs I'm dual-booting Windows 7 RC currently. I haven't tried it from this OS yet.

My dad's PC has got Norton Antivirus 2009 which among my friends is the ultimate sacrilege to the computer industry. They call it bloatware and admittedly the computer takes a while to boot; but there are other factors involved with that. I think that's pretty much it besides AVG free and PC user firewall on my XP machine. Any suggestions?

Oh, I disabled all of these and it still didn't work even after configuring windows firewall through the warning pop ups you get when a program does something for the first time.

I just bought Need For Speed: Underground for my PC and I installed it. After I installed it I clicked on the Icon on the desktop to start the game, instead of the game running, a Need For Speed Window pops up for like 3 seconds and then the game shuts down and I am returned to the windows desktop as if I never clicked anything at all.

I have tried to see and use the vinyls in NFS Underground. It's so difficult to find the vinyls files which I can go into find and see but I cannot see them in the game folder. If anyone knows tell me... WHERE R THEY???? If it's okay (im not sure if it is or not) since I can't find them if someone could email me ([email protected]) ONLY ALL the vinyls files for the game that would be great thankx!!!! I do have the full retail version on a disc but it's scratched up so...maybe it just can't read them. I don't know. HELP ME!!!!! PPLEASE!!!!

MIII
 

A:Need For Speed Underground

The easiest solution is to reinstall the game. The vinyls are bin files located in the cars folder on disk one. There isn't a folder that contains all the vinyls for all the cars. You'll have to open the folder for each car individually to find the vinyls.bin file.

When i first played this game, i was using a ATI ASUS X800xt PCI-e 256mb graphics card, the game ran perfectly, but then the fan went bust on the card. It was replaced with a Nvidia XFX 6800ultra PCI-e 256mb, now NFSU2 runs badly, the game pauses alot, frames are low, and i'm now .

I heard there was a problem with 6800 cards, the latest patch (v1.2) was to fix that or even at least improve peformance. This patch hasnt done anything, unless i have a different problem.

I thought the game would run better with nvidia cards, guess not, guess the nvidia logo on the back isnt meant to mean anything.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this, if its even possible. Any help would be great.

Sys. Spec

ASUS P5AD2 Premium
P4 550 3.4ghz 800mhz HT (ASUS Star Ice - CPU Cooling)
Crucial Ballistix PC4300 2*512mb
XFX 6800ultra PCI-e 256mb
Creative Audigy 2 ZS
Western Digital Raptor 36gb
 

A:Need For Speed Underground 2 - Runs really bad.

You evidently have a driver conflict or something. I have had an X800XT PE and now am using a 6800GT. The game runs much better on the 6800GT especially after the 1.2 patch.

I very seldom drop below 60 FPS. I am usually at 70 FPS or better.

Did you clean out all the ATI drivers with driver cleaner?

Let's see... Could be:
1: background program is stealing focus.. (If the game just minimizes)
2: your video card could be over heating.
3: Your at the low end of reqirements, and it just can't handle so much detail..
Set everything to low and give that a try..

After that to solve the problem i downloaded latest driver for my video card and after that window's xp was not able to on it even.

Hi again everyone,

I am going nuts with this Need for Speed Underground 2 Demo, I must have downloaded it ten times from ten different locations by now all files read the same size 345 Mb.

When I try to install the demo the first thing it does is, ask you to select a folder/directory to extract the files to (it's in a self extracting zip file) ok no problem I do that, it gets to more or less the end of the extract and then reports a CRC error in file "compressed.zip", yes, it's a zip file within a zip file.

I then install it from the selected folder/directory and, off it goes running its install routine looking good.... but wait crc error wthin folder "compressed.zip" on a file called "sd.viv".

You then have the really helpful choice of "Retry" or "Cancel Installation", "Retry" does not work and "Cancel Installation" rolls the installation back (damn, windows installer strikes again !!!).

Ive also tried extracting the "compressed.zip" file manually and it works - sort of - I end up with a load of extra folders related to cars vinyls etc etc, then get CRC error on vinyls.bin or streamxxx.bun or... well it varies depending on where I downloaded the original file from.

I can even get to see the opening video sometimes - Looks Good -.

When I play NFS Underground and I go to the graphics settings. some settings are off and cannot be changed Motion Blur, Crown Animations, and Headlights. How can I turn them on

My Video Card is Geforce MX400 64 MB
i have a 850Mhz Duron Processor and a 512 Memory
 

A:Need For Speed Underground No Motion Blur, Crown Animations, and Headlights... Why?

Turning them on would be too much for your computer, thus, the game automatically disbles them. Your video card and CPU would need to be upgraded in order for those to function properly. If you did enable them somehow, the game would run horribly, it would be very unplayable....it's better that you have them off.

If this helped you, then reply saying so..More reply's = more attractiveness to people who need help

Every 30 seconds to 2minutes, vista refreshes its network connection, this can cause lag in games such as WOW and other demanding applications that run off the internet. Some games have been
reported to even crash because of it, making some almost unplayable. But there are programs to change that safely and easily, and it will make everything internet wise, run smoother.

Both of these programs will fix that...and give you faster Online Games:
(only 1 is required...although i do recommend the first one)

The all mighty Vista Anti-lag:

(2 downloads, rar and exe available):

Features:
- Removing 'Lag Spikes' \ 'Lag Peaks'
- No dropouts with Skpye & VoiceOverIP
- Download stuff at full speed without any hassle.
- Less Lag in games and applications on Windows Vista
- Best thing is, its FREE!
Simply select your wireless card if not already selected, click activate VAL, and bye bye lag spikes.


Here is an Example of what this program does
While VAL is inactive, this is your general internet connection
But while activated, this is the result.
No spikes... and no more lagging because of them

I would like to run a network cable underground to link up two buildings.... the length isn't what I'm looking at here... what i need to know is if I can put regular cat5 cable a few feet under the ground, or if I need a cable with special wrapping to do that.

Any ideas would be great. Thanks!
