    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.

    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)

    7c9890be-b404-4239-ab85-2549d1fff321.png ba811386-5644-467d-8f55-0cd5665df811.png 1e00456b-2378-404c-b438-2105e29b6dc5.png

    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

    The game map has it in the wrong spot. The Brad Lawless memorial with the tiny looping road is off the north road of Pigeon Park. Images of it below. The second image is facing almost north, so you can use that to get a sense of the orientation.

    The fastest car for circuit, sprint, street-x, and url is the Corolla, a starter car, since it has the best grip and similar power of the other cars in the game. The fastest car for drag is the 240SX, so fast that with a "wheelie" setup, it would launch so fast that it would trigger a cheat detect with EA's online servers, so players switched to the RX7 or RX8. For career mode, the Corolla is fast enough. The highest scoring car for drift is the Golf (even though front wheel drive cars would not be allowed in drift events). Unlike U1, the AI in U2 don't rubber band, and the Corolla will generally leave the AI way behind.

    I know, I already figured it out earlier.
    Thanks for the images though.

    There are some tracks where you can get through the barriers, such as Freemont, which is how I got those photos without the Cingular logo on the screen. Then there's a way to free roam at the airport, using one of the URLs, and getting past a barrier:
