If you are running the RIP version and do not have sound, go to the folder where you installed Need For Speed and then click on NFSSOUND, I chose sound blaster. (Do not try to run NFSSOUND through DOSbox, because it is not a dos file). Then go back to DOSbox and run NFS. you should now have sound. this worked for me, anyway.

By playing this game back then I had the feeling I'm actually racing. And the images of the cars looked amazing in dos! :)

I downloaded both. ISO and RIP. RIP is working, but has no sound. And in ISO they´re missing a lot of files. :(
I hope that sb can help me. (Sorry for my bad english, i´m German)

I agree, NFS HP2 was the best one, the killing shot (at least for me) was NFS Underground...eww.

Can't get it to work. Missing some files when trying to play the game. Install.bat won't install because of "Illegal command: arj." - what to do?

Anyone else have the problem where they can only go backward and not go forward? I'm running Windows Vista on a 32-bit Dell Model PP31L laptop.

The game that started a legend. My favorite was NFS Hot Pursuit 2 (2002)
