NFSU2 Extra Options

NFS Underground 2 - Extra Options
v5.0.0.1337 (Build 5; Rev.00)

Source Code:
(Some options are disabled by default. Don't forget to check the 'NFSU2ExtraOptionsSettings.ini' file out.)

+ (New!) Hide Nifty Drift Messages
> You can now get rid of "Good Drift!", "Perfect Drift!", etc. messages while drifting! You are always the drift king, tho.

+ (New!) Window Damage Fix
> Window damage isn't limited to the game moment camera anymore!

+ Lap and Opponent Controllers
- You can have from 0 (which makes the race unlimited) to 127 (Really long races) laps.
> Maximum opponents are now limited with 5 instead of 3. (More than 6 players will crash the game.)
! These options are valid for LAN races, too.

+ Change Maximum Drift Multiplier
> The default value was x5. You can boost it up to x9, or use x1 for more challenging drift races.
! Now with this hack, static drift scores in Heights Drift races are multiplied with Multiplier/5 (1.8 for x9) to balance them with you.
> You can also tweak how your score will look like. Add a + before it, or show it without multiplying.

+ Hide Online from Main Menu
> This option won't have any function until a wild NFSU2 server emulator appears. So, you can remove it from the menu.

+ Show Outrun Mode in Quick Race Menu
> Your 1vs1 game mode from Career and LAN is now available in Quick Race.
! But with some issues: Screen will stay black, it isn't even split. And you control 2 cars at the same time.
! You can fix the black screen using 'ExperimentalSplitScreenFix' option in [Fixes] section.

+ Enable Track Selection for Free Run and Outrun
> They have a very long list! Just try it.
> No more random tracks for Outrun game mode!

+ Play Any Track in Any Race Mode
> Drift in your favourite track, or make a free roam Drag!
> This option will also add hidden tracks in menus.
> You can enable or disable it anytime, just press "End" before selecting a race mode!
! This will make the list too long. After some races, icons won't scroll. But you can select a race safely.
! If you select a Sprint Drift (Heights Drifts) for another game mode, your game will crash when you finish the race.

+ Show Special Vinyl Category
> Debug vinyl and sponsor vinyls; just go install them from the Vinyls menu.
! Some vinyls don't work for some cars.

+ Change Splash Screen Time Limit
> 30 seconds aren't enough? Make it a minute, an hour, maybe a day!

+ Enable Hidden Camera Angles
> Birds eye free roam? Yeah, it's here!
> (New!) Unused Driver Camera is here, too!

+ Unlock Region Specific Cars
> You can drive Peugeout 106 & Vauxhall Corsa in your NTSC game. Same deal with Acura RSX & Honda Civic in your PAL game.
> They will be available at Customize Menu and Career Car Lot.
> They also appear as AI opponents.
! You need to have files for these cars. You can get them here (Thanks to 379Felipe) :!MEA3zI4S!qaHxSggw_n_zjzSUKmiVn5Xf0rTpOsjvUueA5GPw-hI

+ Unlock All Things
> This will unlock everything in game. Like a season pass, but it's for FREE!
> You can enable or disable it anytime, just press "F5"!

+ Remove Barriers
> Locked area barriers or route indicators, remove if you don't want them!
! This hack will be disabled for Drift, StreetX and URL tracks to fix invisible walls bug.

+ Change Neon Brightness
> Are that neons too bright for you? You can dim them.

+ Carbon-Styled Race Progress
> No more LAPS 1/1! You'll see % progress on 1-lap races now.

+ Enable subtitles for English!
> You want to know what they talk about, but you can't understand what do they say? This is for you!
! Some subtitles are buggy, because of their cut strings.

+ Fixed "Please insert disc 2." bug for PCs without optical drives.
> The game wants you to insert the disc even with a No-DVD crack? Now it's fixed, just run the game!

+ Toggle Headlights
> Off, Low Beam or High Beam. However you want.
! You can also change brightness for each setting.

+ Show More Race Options
> It will let you enable AI opponents in Sprint Drift (Heights Drift) races.
> You can also disable fixed lap and opponent counts for Lap KO enabled races.

+ Save/Load Hot Position
> You can save your place in the world and teleport it when you want.
> Press 'LShift + 1' to save, 'LCtrl + 1' to load.
> Hot positions are stored in "NFSU2\TRACKS\" file. You can open it with any text editor.
! Files will be different for each game world, so you can't teleport yourself to airport while in Drift track.

+ Show Debug Car Customize
> Select any car in customize menu and select the latest option.

+ Garage Camera Hacks
> You can now scroll the camera infintely in Y axis. Just hold your middle click and drag up/down.

+ Debug Camera
> Press 'L' to switch between modes.
> Modes and their controls are listed below. (Thanks to Xan1242)

+ Game Speed
> Set game speed!
! It doesn't affect menus.
! Too low and high values will corrupt car physics and control responsiveness.

+ World Animation Speed
> Those trees are waving so fast? Try this option!
! Fixed a bug that stops animations when you disable VSync.

+ Game Region
> You can't play with your European friends? Just change your game region code to anything else.

+ Starting Cash
> Start with a specified amount of cash. Get rich easily from the start!

+ Weather Options
> Open the .ini file and go to the [Weather] section. Set it as you like!

+ Disappearing Wheels Fix
> You can use open-wheel cars now! Disappearing wheels issue is fixed.

+ Outrun Black Screen Fix
> It's experimental and doesn't fix any race behaviour. Use with 'ShowOutrun' option in [Menu] section.

+ Windowed Mode
> Run the game in a window instead of full screen. Bordered or borderless options are available.

+ Disable Sound/Music
> Mute any game sound, just with 2 ini options.

+ Freeze Camera
> You caught a nice angle and don't want to lose it? Press Scroll Lock and it will lock the camera for you!

+ Show More Customization Options

> You can apply decals on your stock hoods! (Restored game feature)

> You can apply cut Oasis and Advan (Yokohama) rims on your car!

+ Show Event ID
> If you are having a hard time to find the event you are looking for, enable this option and the game will tell its ID on upper right corner!

+ Longer Profile Names
> Instead of the standard 7, you can now have up to 15 characters in your profile names.
> We also enabled the use of special characters in them!
! Don't use " DVD " or " Magazine " (with spaces) in your profile names. They are excluded from the profile list to prevent collision with DVD and Magazine covers.
! Don't use any character which isn't allowed in File/Folder names on Windows. Or else, you will be unable to save your profile.

+ Skip Movies
> You can now skip Movies if they are too long for you!

+ Multiple Instances
> You can now multiple instances of the game at the same time, without needing to copy the executable several times!
> This may be useful if you are trying to replicate cars in your other save games and stuff.

+ NOS Trail Repeat Count
> You don't want to see stretching taillight glows while hitting NOS? Now it's possible!

Now you can install the Extra Options. Just follow these steps:

1) Select "dinput8.dll" file and "scripts" folder in the archive.
2) Copy them to your NFSU2 Installation Folder. (Use Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V / Cmd+C, Cmd+V / Strg+C, Strg+V; Right-Click > Copy; via xcopy command on CMD; or how do you like it.)

There's quite a bit of random crashing; know any way to fix that?

XBGamerX20 (August 15, 2019 @ 01:25)
I fixed the problem but when I go away from the main city to other weird structures, they simply disappear. How can I fix this problem?

XBGamerX20 (August 15, 2019 @ 01:15)
Hey guys, I have a problem with the debug camera. It doesn't work whenever I click the L button, somebody please help me!

Hey guys, I've been using this mod, but I cannot unlock cars in career mode however I trigger the unlockallthings option. Quick race & other unlocks are all fine. Can anyone help me please?

For those of you experiencing the infinite loading, it has to do with unlocking the region-restricted cars. Either disable that in the configuration file, or install this mod, which adds the car model and textures for the Corsa and 106:

Only copy and replace the CARS and CREDITS folder -- don't copy the SPEED2.EXE, or else you'll lose the US-only cars (on top of the possibility of additional problems like increased game crashes).
