==== Requirements ====

You'll need original NFS Most Wanted (2005) (v1.3, English US version) with no mods installed to run HPC!
Overall HPC requires a little more than what was needed to run original NFS MW (2005), but it does depend on what kind of setup you have. If you had problems running original game, it's going to get even more complicated with the mod. If you had no problems before, HPC is unlikely to cause any.

! Important note !
Due to Google and Microsoft not knowing about HPC and its files, they will flag it as possibly unsafe (NOT malware, but UNSAFE). That happens because those files (which include installer) are obscure to them, and they want to give a warning before you may continue.
HPC is never intended to be in any way a harmful software or even a malware, it is only a mod for a game. So you can trust it. If you think otherwise - that's understandable. No one forces you to continue, and you may refuse from this project if you feel like it.

======= Installation & First start =======

Note, you can see same installation process, but with demonstrations:

1. Run "Hot Pursuit Challenges - Setup.exe"
2. It's likely going to cause Windows once again warn you about obscurity and possible unsafety of the program. To continue, click on "More info", then on button bellow "Run anyway"
3. On each stage of installation it's recommended to read all the text before doing anything. Every stage is described in the way that you can easily understand what it's about and what you need to do
4. After you're done with installation, you can start launcher, where you can configure several game settings and start the game itself
5. To start the game click on "Play" button (It will take a time to start! About 5 minutes with high quality textures)
6. Create a new profile (MW05 ones won't work properly!)

That's it, enjoy!

=== Support ===

Q: My game doesn't launch through launcher!
A: That's sad, you'd have to launch game manually. Go into "game folder\TexMod" folder, launch "TexMod.exe" file, select your game executable "game folder\speed.exe", then select your retexture "game folder\TexMod\HPC_WorldRetexture.tpf", and then launch game.

If you still have issues with installation and launch of the game - consider joining discord server to ask question in public chat, where people can try to help you!

Important note: You may be denied support if it turns out that you didn't follow installation & first start instructions, and requirements of the mod.

===== Current issues =====

  • When starting any pursuit challenge, which is available at the start of the stage - introduction cutscene won't play
  • Some races have outro cutscenes, which unfortunately can't be natively played (current solution is to play them in seperate emtpy races)
  • Some cars 'lift themselves up a little bit' when they're enough away from you
  • Some races should have specific weather & time of day conditions, but currently that doesn't work
  • Some special cars such as NFS editions should have special gauges, but currently that doesn't work

This is probably the best mod in NFSMods at the moment

Hot pursuit challenges is not nfsmw, it is a completely different game. Amazing
