      Just play NFSU again. I played it like 2 months ago. After I finished it, I played it and finished it again. It's runs and looks great with a few fixes. I downloaded a version with fixes included from my abandon ware dot com. I tried Most Wanted after, but NFSU is much better imo. Haven't tried NFSU2 but I always preferred the first.

      Because PS2 era games use textures with small resolutions. Can be solved through modding by downloading bigger resolution textures pack, but be aware that if your PC is potato, game will lag.

      Decals had no mip maps. So when they're small on your screen or at a steep view angle, it will have pixel shimmering, ant crawl, grainy pixels, however you want to describe it.

            You can view the textures using tools if you don't believe me

            They also look like shit on MW and Carbon on PC for the same reason, that's why people mod those for higher quality counterparts

                Also, we both use the in-game engine to render the vinyls, because the SVG exporter in Binary is broken

                About Most Wanted, it doesn't have vectors though, so you're stuck with the 360 vinyls at 1024x

                I had to frick around with binary a while back to fix the vinyl for the m3 gtr, for whatever reason the blacklist vinyl pack completely removes the base texture for the bmw and the only thing that is visible is the vinyl itself. I had to take the texture from the HD pack and replace it since I didn't have a back up of the original. The blacklist pack got updated though and now it seems to be fixed.

          High definition for higher res screens killed old methods of reusing assets for creative purposes, otherwise you'd end up having games with even more bloated disc space than they currently are. It's how the Battlefront Collection went from 15 GB space total from the old games and jumped up to 70 GB of space with that botched release.

            Not really, a lot of old games look good in high res. Also the BF2 port should not be used as an example of anything other than complete incompetence and the tendency to deliver unfinished products.

              Most games are unoptimized to shit because of executive demand of 'raise the polygon count on main character's hair.' Battlefront is a perfect example of how trash it is these days.

It is burnout esc but the cars still handle like nfs, nice and weighty. So i find it really fun, also cop chases are more aggro than carbon, they are the second beat behind the original most wanted.

      It's very hard to make a driving game set in our world and use fictional cars and have it suspend your disbelief since you know what those cars are analogues of. Most people attracted to racing games happen to appreciate real cars too and not featuring real cars can end as a disappointment to these people who have built a hobby around appreciating automobiles. They may as well be playing mario kart as far as they're concerned. Games feature more real cars now because the fact is the average racing game player just happens to know more about cars now. Publishers just aren't willing to take a risk on a game that deviates from that

      In order to make a racing game without real cars and have it be successful, it cannot be set in our modern world. I'd personally suggest a futuristic setting like F-Zero or star wars podracer, so long as you have the gameplay to back it up. I think people are actually pretty hungry for a game like that with rich lore and a believable world that can immerse people. Unfortunately publishers aren't really willing to take a risk on that either.

      Of course most of that is meaningless if you don't know shit about cars, but like I said it's become a far more common interest than it was 20 years ago. If you aren't some level of enthusiast now you're in a shrinking minority.

          The rubberbanding is EXTREME. To the point the tutorial race you'll likely finish with less than a second lead on the a.i. The game was tuned as if you were a veteran of 2 and 3 (I was so I beat the game before they adjusted balance but it was....educational).

      The answer to 80% of problems in racing games is "turn earlier." This applies to all sorts of games, even complete fantasy games like BallisticNG. You're riding walls if you can't turn enough. Because you turn to late you're asking the car to rotate faster than it can. Turn a little earlier and your turning circle can be a lot less. Also try braking a little bit to transfer weight to your front wheels. Brake more if you have to, although in NFSU there is no car damage and bonking off the walls strategically can work well sometimes.

      Honestly, between just how much shit there is in the PS2 era games, you should just get them all from myabandonware. UG, UG2, MW and Carbon are classics and you'll love them. If you crave a really long experience, Carbon also has a mod called Battle Royale that adds a ton of races and shit, I enjoyed it but other anons may have more to say on the matter.

          At least it wasn't as bad as MW2012. I played that game for 30 minutes before uninstalling purely because I found the handling unbearable.
          It was similar to HP2010 handling but at least that game was entirely on open roads and highways, so the B2D was bearable.

          Brake 2 drift
          Basically how you take all your corners in HP2010, MW2012, and all Ghost NFS games. If you brake and take corners normally you lose lots of speed.

            That's certainly true for 2010. Haven't played all the Ghost games but I recently played Heat and you're able to make a grip racing build if you want to. Went with a Lotus Exige and road racing setup which had maxed out grip. It was a UFO and made every race in the game incredibly easy.
            Heat isn't quite a masterpiece but I think the variety of events is good and car physics don't change when you go into drift mode. It's just how you setup your car with the one physics model. The offroad events are also much more enjoyable compared to the drag racing events in blackbox games. Once you get the annoying story over with I think it's a pretty decent game.

              I played heat too but the forced drifting still got in the way. The brake drift setting wouldn't let me brake in a corner without drifting and the clutch kick setting wouldn't let me feather the throttle through a corner without drifting. This on-rails drifting needs to be dropped completely before I come back to NFS

          You hit the brake and the car starts drifting super smoothly. No skill involved. It's kinda lame, but it's the only way to take corners in nu-NFS games.

            You can do this on blackbox games too, but mostly on sharp corners and car is a bit harder to control.

            With speedbreak no reason to hit brakes ever, if stop hitting gas for a bit can solve most small corners.

        A lot of people who like sims also enjoy arcade racers. We grew up playing NFS, Flatout, Burnout, and Gran Turismo. Even Ridge Racer is cool to me. We just like car games in general. I don't remember any sim fans complaining about the popularity of arcade racers during their heyday either. There was no bitter rivalry. They're separate markets in the sense that we will buy both types of games but there's another, bigger market segment that used to buy arcade games and no longer does. All I can say is to support those arcade games which are coming out. If you like fantasy racers check out Super Pilot, XF Extreme Formula, Break Arts III, GRIP, and Redout 2. We don't have the same variety we used to but it's not like we're lacking newer games in this genre.

          Games from that era were developed for consoles first, then ported.

          PC versions had missing effects or shaders, in order to run in low to mid range PCs.

          Most wanted 360 is completely different beast on part with carbon. While PC version is same as usual but more traffic.

          PS2 version only has better depth of field and more bloom with fog to cope for inferiority. Xbox and PC versions are superior in every other way, because they don't lack juice.
          UG2 is crucial moment when PS2 and Gamecube as systems started showing cracks, one of best examples is lighting - PC version has sphere like lighting and better rendering, and looks nice, while in comparison PS2 and Gamecube got cube-like lighting to ease rendering and loading so the consoles dont fry. It's actually ironic considering that one of head developers (don't remember name) in Blackbox back in the day during interviews for Playstation magazine said that PS2 still has the juice to go, and can be pushed harder in the future.
          For best experience stick to PC because you can change graphics, change resolution, and run it on 60FPS.

            Wait, I made a mistake. It's opposite.
            PC and Xbox use cube like lighting with mapping, while PS2 with Gamecube use sphere lighting with mapping.
            Basically, it's rendering 6 textures on cube vs rendering 1 texture on sphere to save memory and shorten loading times.
            But yeah, PC version is superior unless you're nitpicking autist who wants stuff like slightly better looking decals, bloom, and depth of field.

              being 60 fps and smooth is far better than any of the minor shader effects the console versions may have. I recently tried to play NFSU2 on gamecube, but the frame rate couldn't even hold 30. I think it was more like 24 or something.

          I never understood this argument. Mods are available for the PC version. The fact that they aren't hard coded by the developers doesn't change that.
          The argument is about the experience of the end user, not the work of the developers. The devs are long gone, their contributions don't matter.

      It is but only play career mode. Challenge series is cancer and lots of new challenges are borderline unbeatable.
      Car classification system is now remade, tuners are shit and only good for drift, muscle cars handle more or less same, exotics now are the go for cars in races.
      Unlocks system got better, no longer tied entirely to reward cards and multiplayer, however, some of good cars are locked behind challenge series events.
      There are now lots of races and it will take very long time to beat all tracks.
      Wingmen got redone too. Scouts were removed, now they are either changed blockers or drafters, so Sal is no longer your rubberband homie who will win races for you.
      Pursuit system also is harsher as there are 10 heat levels now and the heat levels change fast.

You could argue that they cared too much and kept shitting out tuners they couldn't actually afford to produce without any solid profit streams to make up for it, and now they're paying the price and will continue to be clawing their way out of debt for decades to come.

    I've been playing Carbon. I haven't played it in years, but it holds up.

      Isn't the rubber banding AI atrocious?

        I'm only on the first crew boss, so maybe it gets worse later.

        Literally Carbon had the better AI of all NFS games out there

        Underground and Most Wanted were horrible in comparison

        the rubberbanding only applies to your crew members, this also means shit like scouts completely break the game

          Carbon is a majestic game.

    It plays and run just fine, but more you dig worse it get, but balance is most obvious.

      what does this mean

        Some cars got demoted to bonus and don't have complete asset for kits or auto sculpt, some cars also have less stuff than MW.

        As for balance? Gears in general are fricked, too long in ton of cars, some get better handling without suspensions, oversteer and understeer options are reversed in some versions, plus loooots of bugs
