3. Move dinput8.dll to your game's install folder.

Optional HD Cubemap for Need for Speed Carbon

Note: Check the INI file for all available features! These are just general features.
  • HDReflections : Resolution will be increased based on desktop resolution.
  • CubemapRes : Controls the resolution of vehicle cubemaps used in the front-end.
  • OldGPUCompatibility: Vehicle reflections will be rounded to the nearest power of two.
  • Scale : Controls the resolution multiplier of reflections.
  • ImproveReflectionLOD : Increases the level of detail used in reflections.
  • ExtendRenderDistance : Increases the render distance of vehicle reflections.
  • RealFrontEndReflections : Enables real-time vehicle reflections in the front end.
  • RealisticChrome : Makes the chrome materiel more reflective.
  • VehicleReflectionBrightness : Controls the intensity of vehicle reflections.

Q: Is this compatible with other mods?
A: I can't make any promises. It's been tested with Widescreen Fix, Extra Options, Unlimiter, and HUD Resizer. All texture mods and car mods should work.

Q: What are the system requirements?
A: It depends on your resolution, settings, and other graphical enhancements being used. For 1080p, an NVIDIA GTX 1060 / AMD RX 480 should be more than enough for default settings.

Q: Why is a No-CD fix required?
A: Need for Speed games have protections (DRM) that make it difficult to view and modify their code, so No-CD patches are often recommended when using ASI scripts. In addition, the memory addresses in my scripts are all hardcoded, so it's not something I can easily change. If you're concerned about malware, ask the community on the NFSMods Discord to help you acquire these patches from a safe source.

Q: Why is the latest version of the Widescreen Fix recommended?
A: Most of the features I make are often designed to work with the Widescreen Fix. Carbon's "ReflectionContrast" (HD Reflections) and "LightingFix" (Widescreen Fix) features are a good example of this. The Widescreen Fix also provides a solid foundation that everyone should use, since it corrects visual and technical errors the PC ports have.

Q: Why don't I have water reflections like your screenshot of Need for Speed Most Wanted?
A: Install Xbox 360 Stuff Pack. My screenshots simply demonstrate the improvement in resolution and detail.

Q: What happened to the old mod pages?
A: I've decided to consolidate everything into a single package; this applies to the download page and the source code. It's easier for me to manage and more convenient for people downloading them.

Disregard my last comment, I forgot to turn the RestoreDetails setting to 2 in the config file...

I'm cringing so hard at myself right now.

@Lumanator MW doesn't have speedlines on PC but Carbon does, there's even a mod that removes them from the game.

It could be me, but where did the speedlines for most wanted and carbon go.

Destroyed objects now appear in the rearview mirror however particle effects are still missing after the most recent update.

YellowDude (October 24, 2022 @ 07:22)
in the MW 2005 version at least

YellowDude (October 24, 2022 @ 07:18)
so uh, the objects disappear in the rear view but they still show the shadows, and particles wont appear either, any plans for a fix?
