*NOTE*...Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2 Performance Problems

After buying this game several days ago...right off the bat I was having problems with the game stuttering VERY BADLY at several points in the game. Some tracks were worse than others. I visited the EA forum and noticed that everyone else was having the same problem on different machines. I read one guy's post that he tried the Detonator 40.72's and the problem went away. So, after trying several different things to no avail, I decided to give them a try. Once I tried them, all of the stuttering went away....the game now runs as it should. Just thought some of you with this game and an NVIDIA card might be interested in this info. Good Luck!

mafiafromrussia, how did it goes on a 41.03? I'm using 41.03 too but i'm getting my hands on this game by end of this week.

BTW. will a 64MB GF2MX 400 be able to run it in a nice detail?

I have a Geforce 3 Classic and the 41.03's and this game runs sweet with max details. No stuttering at all, actually runs better than Nascar 4 does on my system.

well i got riva tnt2 model 64 16mb :) and it actually runs very good with 41.03. i'm able to set car detail+special effects to high setting(not the highest though :( ) and i set word detail to lowest or sometimes low. and the game runs very smooth except when i drive by a water fall, there are couple of those, then the game does kinda freez up for a sec or two. other wise it's ok. and i havent tryed playing online yet. maybe on sunday .

FInally got my hands on the game.. Run pretty smoothly on the highest detail (the special effects couldn't be put highest), the waterfall doesn't bother me at all but its a major lagging when 6 cars racing together and crash together onto a police road block. I'm very glad that it works on my GC though i'm not that satisfied with its performance. BTW, i'm using 41.03

What a really nice game :D

I've hammered it for a couple of days
& no problems at all
Using a P4 1.6 GeForce 2 MX 400 (3D Mark 2500 )

tried it on a mates machine
AthlonXP1700 GeForce 3 TI ??? ( 3D Mark 9500 )
& it chugs like mad make no sense ?????

tried it on my kids machine not expecting too much
Celery500 & Using a GeForce 2 MX 200 (3D Mark 1500 )
& it runs sweet

A new game made for low end cards ??? (crazy)

who needs to patch their software
nvidia or EA games ???

Nismo83 dont know what to say about your loading problem. maybe it's something with the game? or maybe a defragment would work? although i dont really see how. maybe some settings in the game shoud be changed. for me it loads pretty fast i'd say. if u cant figure it out, try backing up your profile which should be in my documents>ea games\nfs. and reinstalling the game. maybe to a different folder, or even partition if you have it.
