NepTune 2021-07-16 1 point

Thanks for sharing this! I followed "UPDATED INSTALL GUIDE"s and "BK2010"s guide step by step and it works great!

PS.: I assume there is no way i can get the game's audio / video (not just switching the text!) in other languages?

Please upload NFS Carbon here too, it was removed from Steam, so we cannot obtain it legally anymore.

@ blackbillymayes

Also if you do not want to overwrite the orignal speed2.exe with the noCD patch then make a copy of the orignal and place it somewhere else before pasting the noCD patch into the game installation.

BK2010 2021-05-20 0 point

@ blackbillymayes

Most simple way to do it (if you have the game installed and a shortcut exists on the desktop) right the shortcut and click open file location, this will bring you directly to were the game was installed, now open a new window for Windows explorer (leaving the current window open where the game is installed) navigate to the cracked no cd patch and copy it, go back to the window were the game installation is and paste the patch by overwriting the existing speed2.exe.

@Naufal Dzol

You will need mounting software to mount the images
Windows (DAEMON Tools Lite) nofree or (WinCDEmu) free.

Both can be found on the Internet, Daemon tools is not free (might be a trail version)
WinCDemu is free, although that software is quite old now so not too sure you can still get it. However I think Windows 10 has built in mounting software despite it's other downfalls.

Naufal Dzol 2021-04-27 0 point

@BK2010 may I ask something? So about the NoCD patch, first how do I mount the image before installing the game?

blackbillymayes 2021-04-17 0 point

can someone give me a guide on how to replace the NoCD SPEED2 with the speed2 on disk 2? i am stuck at this part, and dont want to delete this

ReyOrton24 2021-04-10 1 point

It would be amazing if you include the European version. But at least we can download this game in a place of trust.

loubke 2021-04-06 1 point

Hey, so I don't know if anyone else has this problem or maybe I did something wrong. But everytime I try to drop the .dll file it says it there is not enough space on the disk.
Same when I copy the speed2.exe from nocd. It just says that there is no space left instead of replacing it. Some steps I forgot or am I gonna have to start a prayer?

Milim 2021-03-20 1 point

Played through almost the entire game, but now I get a CTD every time i try to load the actual game world. Reinstalling the exe used to fix it but now im no longer able to play. Anyone have a fix for this?

Stozza 2021-03-18 1 point

Mine has installed perfectly, running sweet as a nut however I cant get my controller to switch for racing, works perfectly in menus. Just doesn't change the keys for racing (I have changed and tested after to check but still no joy) Any ideas?

0x1 2021-03-13 0 point


Sounds like your trying to copy the Speed2.exe file to the mounted image and not were you installed the game? or you have actually have no space left.

confused 2021-03-12 -2 points

How do I replace the Speed2 file? Every time I try to move the new Speed2 file into the folder, it simply says "There is insufficient space." It gives me no option to overwrite or replace. I've tried everything I can think of and I'm just totally unsure what I'm doing wrong.

BK2010 2021-03-04 0 point


I wouldn't say completely ignore my guide, personally I would avoid KeyGens "most" of them are malware. I my guide I have included the key needed to get the game going,some useful spec info along info for getting the game working on Linux, another way of doing it in general, I take it your guide is soley for windows though.

However I thank you for the very useful tip regarding the game crashing, wasn't too sure as to why that was :)

ADDENDUM TO THE GUIDE 2021-03-04 0 point

I'm not entirely sure if the controller fixes are enabled by default with the Widescreen Fix patch, so make sure to open the .ini file and set ImproveGamepadSupport to the right number for you.

UPDATED INSTALL GUIDE 2021-03-04 4 points

Alright, here's the best, hopefully idiot-proof install guide for this classic. Ignore BK2010's guide as it has some issues and is outdated.

Step 1: Install the game by mounting the ISO for CD1 and running the setup.exe, then mounting CD2 when prompted. You can get a key for the game online or use a Keygen.

Step 2: Install the 1.2 update, it's absolutely necessary to have it! In most cases, it'll be a matter of just running the executable and the patch will install itself super-fast without having to do anything.

Step 3: Crack the game, aka overwrite SPEED2.EXE with the one from the NoCD download.

Step 4: Install the Widescreen Fix for the game, which also fixes some issues and allows you to properly play with a controller. You can find it here:
Just open the file and drop the .dll and the scripts folder into the same directory as your SPEED2.EXE. It'll work on its own, but you can tinker with the settings, found in the 'scripts' folder, if you need to and know what you're doing. If you have issues with the game crashing when entering shops and stuff like that, open the .ini file and change SingleCoreAffinity = 0 to = 1.

Step 5: Right click the executable, go to Properties, and set Compatibility Mode to Windows XP (Service Pack 2).

Step 6: Run the game. It should be at your desktop resolution by default, and if you plan on using a controller you really should change the controls. When rebinding them, don't be confused by the button that shows up; the inputs will be set to whatever you pressed, even if it displays a completely different button.

Step 7: Profit. Ideally you should be good to go. I recommend adding a couple more mods, particularly Extra Options, to fix up other problems the game has and get more out of the game.

There you go! If the game still doesn't work for you, then pray to the old gods or do some ritualistic dance: there's no further help I can give you at this point.

It worked perfect for me.

noob 2020-12-24 1 point

I mounted the ISOs, installed the game with the key, and replaced the SPEED2.exe with the NOCD one. When I try to launch the game with the new speed2.exe the screen goes black for a bit and it doesn't load the game.

I'm on Windows 10, what can I do to run the game?

qwerty 2020-12-15 0 point

it worked when i used a different crack than the one provided. also had to run the UniWS as adminastrator to get it to work. Even then, sometimes the game crashed while playing, but it happened rarely so i guess it's tolerable, just save after every race.

C e a p a V e r d e 2020-11-22 0 point

Uhm so yeah i do not know why or how but the NOcD patch dose not work for me. I did intaled as the comentator BK2010 said, and the application just closes it's self in a second. Any help ?

NFSRETRO 2020-11-13 0 point

If anyone is on low spec trying to run this and need more Frames per second, turn off High contrast and overbright settings, biggest fps killers, and to be honest the game looks better without them :)

Zephyr 2020-11-11 -2 points

Forget it, I have found da wae, follow BK2010 instructions, I didn't try playing without the patch, but probably it will run without it.
The thing is, instead of using the normal NoCd, use the one in this site:

That'll do it, good luck in the canyons of your life.

Zephyr 2020-11-11 2 points

So I am on Win 10 and got the game to start only with both image files mounted, I already replaced SPEED2.exe, but somehow it is not working without the discs yet. :(

uh 2020-11-11 0 point

i'm getting an installation error saying "a problem occurred trying to transfer the file E:\Movies\blank.vp6 from the media" i tried to restart the installation and nothing happened... any suggestions?

BK2010 2020-11-08 17 points

Small guide to get the game working:

you only need this patch if you plan have
a NVIDIA 6800 which the patch offers better performance
or if your going to host LAN games.

What you will need:
Min spec requirements: for mostly low settings @ 640x480 res with 30fps

CPU: Pentium III or Athlon XP
CPU SPEED: 933 mhz
RAM: 256 MB
OS: Windows 98/98SE/ME/2000/XP

Recommended requirements:

CPU: Pentium 4 or Athlon XP (Or any decent single core or multithreaded single core)
RAM: 512 MB
OS: Windows XP


You will need mounting software to mount the images
Windows (DAEMON Tools Lite) nofree or (WinCDEmu) free

Copy of the game.


1. Mount images

2. Install game

3. When asked for key enter

4. Copy the speed2.exe you got from extractig the NoCD patch
to the same directory the game is installed, you will be
asked if you want to repace the speed2.exe currently present
there, yes you do :)

5. Download the Universal Widescreen (UniWS) Patcher
(Skip this step if you don't higher resolutions and widescreen)
this will allow you set a custom widescreen resolution, as the game
without it only goes to 1024x768, but make the resolution in the game
set to 640x480, you can set the games custom higher resolution with
the UniWs patcher.

5. Launch, configure your graphics settings and enjoy the game

If you want to put a copy of the game on another computer, simply copy the
entire Need for speed Underground 2 folder (after doing all the above) onto
a external USB, then you can simply copy to anywhere on the other computer
or you can simply run the game from the USB stick.

More notes: Game tested and works on Windows 7,also runs on Linux with wine
but I recommend doing all the above and then simply copy the installation folder
to USB, then in Linux (change directory) to the Game and simply run the speed2.exe with wine.

Some Linux crashes were observed, while this can happen, it does not happen all
the time and could be limited to only my setup.

Enjoy :)

@Misfit: You need to download the nocd patch on from this page and copy over the Speed2.exe to replace the one where you installed the game, then the game should launch.

Misfit 2020-11-07 0 point

So I got it to install, but everytime I try to launch the game, it says I need to insert the correct disk.

I tried launching it with both ISOs opened, and tried each open alone and it keeps saying it. What should I do here? It's most likely stupidly easy but I can't figure it out.
