    I think so I don't recall having to and I was using a dscp3 tool or something to make it work with the games but I don't think that it was needed

    I still play NFSU2 now and then, mainly because it's the only game I've played so far that nailed the throaty boxer sound of the mighty Impreza. Beautiful!

    Okay, their is one thing in Underground 2 that has puzzled me for over a decade now and I still have no answer to this. While I haven't spent any quality time in Underground 2 in over a decade, I do remember in Pigeon Park, it has a location that is visible on the map, but I am 99% sure you can never access it normally. Why it's there and why you can't access it is unclear and despite it being in plain site, I don't know anyone who has explored it yet.

    Has anyone investigated this?

    Edit: Actually it appears it has been explored, I guess I haven't been using the correct search terms! :dunce: This apparently explains it:

    Still i'd be anxious to drive through those walls anyway. :lol:

    In the NFSU2 demo you can drive on it, but you have to use cheats to do so to unlock the map.

    I play sometimes , it is still installed on my PC. Maybe it's not as cool as the new parts, but nostalgia and cool soundtracks ...

    One question I have been asking myself for years now is are the graphics in Underground 2 better or worse than Most Wanted 2005? I'm genuinely curious. I have always felt Underground 2 had better graphics, but given how it's at night and MW is in the day, I have never been too certain about it.

    Mostwanted definetly has better graphics than U2, mostly because MW was made in a different engine, even the car models are still being used nowadays because of the details they had... Although I would still prefer U2 due to the tunning options :)

    Let's revive this thread with this question I've been questioning myself for a while about the game's modding... Why you modders don't just use an original in-game car model to make your mods?? :confused::confused: I'm not a modder, but I think it would make the job much more simpler and comfortable for both game and modder since:

    1.- You have a good base that already works in-game (modder)
    2.- It will be more lore-friendly for the engine (game)
    3.- It modernizes the game while keeping it original (game)
    4.- You would just replace a few stuff (modder)

    If it works in GTA, why it cannot work on NFS??

    What I'm asking is why NFS modders don't make their mods with the in-game car models that have all the extra parts.

    Something like this for example:

    GTA 5's Blista with a hillclimb body (GTA 5 mod)... Pretty sure the modder made the body kit using the original car 3d model.

    Now, I've found something a bit more related...

    NFS Prostreet's Acura Integra Type R 3d model with NFS underground 1's body kits (NFSU2 mod)

    I know the Integra was cutted in the final version (although now it can eventually be restored) but considering how the NFSU1's part models fit the Prostreet's hd model, pretty sure inverting the idea (Let's say the original R34 GTR's 3d model with Prostreet's widebody kit or a rocketbunny kit from another model) could work too. Making it more lore-friendly too like the Blista :D
