Description of Need for Speed II: SE Windows

Made by EA, Electronics Arts, in 1997 this was an upgrade to the original Need for Speed and second in the NFS franchise that’s still in existence today.

Originally made for a Pentium 90 Mhz, 20 Mb (yes megabyte not gigabyte!) and good old Windows 95, this was a great upgrade to the original now with 3Dfx. Better graphics and better racing. It’s really fast and adds four cars to the original eight and one extra track to the original seven. Yeah I know today’s games have multiple tracks and an incredible amount of cars, I’ve played Forza and Grand Turismo and numerous other racing games, but remember it was 1997. Space was expensive. Now-a-days you can get 8 Gb for five bucks but back then a gigabyte was upwards of around $180! I still love the way it controls. I’ve always liked NFS for its control and NFS II SE is no different.

The graphics are really great and better than the original NFS II, they improved the software graphics for NFS II SE and added the 3Dfx for the 3Dfx Voodoo cards to further improve graphics. Edges are more rounded with 3Dfx, cleaner than the “jaggies” you used to see in some games without the graphics upgrade. “Jaggies” were the saw blade edges you’d see on games with lower graphics, think PS1. Sound is OK, not fantastic but OK. Not something I worry about in NFS too much.

Overall I love the NFS series and I think that NFS II SE is a great addition to the series. Hope that you enjoy it and can collect the entire series.

  2. Download the file nGlidesetup_105.exe from
  3. Download the file from
  4. Unzip NFS II SE to your PC. Whichever directory you wish to use.
  5. Run nGlidesetup_105.exe to install it on your PC. Double click on the file or right click it and hit “Open”
  6. Unzip the files from to any directory you wish. Go to the file PatchInstall.bat and run the file as an administrator. Find the file, I used the one in the directory that says “NSFE PATCH (use for playing).” Right click on the PatchInstall.bat file. On the menu, the fourth item down should say “Run as Administrator”. Click that and you will see the file run.
  7. Find the file in the NFS II SE directory called nsf2sea.exe. Right click on it and go to Properties. Go to the tab Compatibility. Under Run the Program in Compatibility Mode set it for Windows 7. Apply the Compatibility mode, click on the Apply button on the bottom of the menu. Double click on nsf2sea.exe and get to racing!

best game ever from NFS franchise, it doesnt match the graphics with today's games, but still the physics were undeniably good and also nfs has been downgraded itself since it has been making games that run online after NFS world

When I first played the demo of the original NFS, I was flashed. On christmas that year I got the full game and I played it a lot. When NFS2 launched, I got that as well for christmas but NFS2:SE I had to save my pocketmoney for, I later had NFS3, skipped 4 and went on to "Porsche Unleashed", which was the last I had from the NFS series.

Hi there

I downloaded the ISO version of this game, nGlide200_setup (automatically downloaded when I tapped on the link) and the nfs2se_patch onto my Android Smartphone, which is a Mint Foz. Then transfered the files via USB to my PC. I followed the steps, extracted NFS II SE with Winrar. Once extracted, a folder Need_for_Speed_2_SE_ISO appears in the directory where I extracted it to. Inside that folder, there's a BIN File "NFS2SE" and a Disc Image File with the same name. After extraction, I run nGlide200_setup

cheese 2018-10-10 0 point

It works, but sometimes it hangs, usually on the loading screen but sometimes while driving. Not really sure why it does that. if you are sick of the 'scratchy' sounds look up a file online: dsound.dll and then put that in your game folder, sounds should be alright then.

BUBU 2018-01-20 2 points

Ah! Old memories!
I used to play this game religiously on my ancient Pentium 2 233Mhz with 64MBs of RAM and 4MB of Graphic Memory. Later, I upgraded to a Celron 300 and bought a Nvidia Riva TNT2 GPU with a 16MB Memory and upgraded my RAM to 172MBs or so. Strange how minuscule these numbers feel in 2018 where we have smartphones with deca core CPUs and nearly 8 Gigs or RAM.
I prefer Porsche 2000 though as it has not only more cars but also TONS of customizations and the handling and car physics are pretty darn realistic, even for 2018 standards!
