  • Interactive music playback - you're not missing out on these! You can even modify them to your liking! (requires a bit of skill)
  • Online streaming - listen to online radio in the game!
  • Automatic metadata reading
  • SHOUTcast metadata support - a track changed on the radio? No problem, the Chyron will pop up when it happens!
  • Music looping

    • BASS' natively supported streaming formats: MP3/MP2/MP1/OGG/WAV/AIFF

If anyone is still struggling with only being able to have 20 songs in a playlist, there's a solution: You must delete the ID Tags off your files in order to avoid crashing when adding more than 20 songs to a playlist, you can use MP3Tag for this, and build your playlists with Winamp, i have a playlist of 260+ songs running without issues after doing this (other than songs that are selected to play only on menu still play in Free Roam and Races in NFS:MW)

When nfs u2 support?

It seems to me that the player has no limit at all.
The main thing is that the music would be something like this:
Artist, title (or just the title) and nothing else (without any album names, etc. in the "Advanced" tab in the file properties)
I have 170+ songs in .mp3 now, playlist created via Winamp and all fine (in Carbon).

I don't know why, but whenever I go to the EA TRAX menu, it just crashes for no reason.

Unfortunately, latest version crashes with more than 20 tracks for me... and 1.3 doesn't play them, shows as many tracks as I put there and it loads their media info, but there's silence. Tried either .mp3 or .ogg files. Dunno what version to try.
