Scout's NFSU2 UI Remaster

2022 Update:

Feel free to use the textures from this mod in your mod. Just give credit where it's due. I am no longer planning to update this.
The scope of it is just too massive and I am busy with other things.


Update video

Need for Speed Underground 2 has aged, and so did its User Interface textures. Thanks to the Widescreen Fix made by ThirteenAG, the UI elements manage to fit perfectly in any screen format.
However, the HUD, Fonts and other Interface textures look really ugly due to their low resolution.

With that said, in 2018, I decided to start working on a UI Remaster for Need for Speed Underground 2.

The mod focuses on trying to replicate the original textures as closely as possible. However, due to limitations (which include the original resolution of the texture and lack of source bitmaps), some liberty has to be taken while I make the textures.

Changes and Improvements

  • NOS Gauge
  • Radar Textures
  • Fonts
  • Interface elements
  • Map (Freeroam Career, Partial) [WIP 50% complete]
  • Speed Dials
  • And much more...


Instructions on how to install Scout's NFSU2 UI Remaster
  • Download and install Aero's NFS HD Content Support ->
  • Drag all folders and files except for this readme to the game's path.
    This version does not require TexMod unlike the previous ones.

Comparison Screenshots

Here are some comparison gifs. (I suggest opening them in another tab)

The difference is far more noticeable in-game.

Texture Comparisons


The radar map may be a bit tricky because there are dozens of textures.
Feel free to send me suggestions and complaints regarding the quality of the mod. There are a still a lot of adjustments to be made and hundreds of textures remaining.
The comparisons have tags on them because I don't want people to steal the textures ;)
The full scope of the mod is better seen in-game, most of the textures have been redone in 4x their original size.

Special Thanks to:

Aero_ for NFS HD Content Support (
Binary by maxhwoy (

Without Binary I wouldn't have thought of continuing this mod.
Aero's mod makes sure some of the textures work properly and in scale.

I apologize for abandoning the mod like this. I now realize that I should have probably set a smaller goal.
Remaking the entire UI would be and was very time consuming and I unfortunately didn't feel like continuing made sense.
I'm thankful for all the messages and the interest in this mod! Unfortunately the scope of the work required to finish it feels like too much for me, although if I had continued maybe I would have it finished? Anyway...
