View Full Version : Need for Speed 4 registry hacks

8th April 2000, 07:06
Okay, I see alot of people on Gaming forum asking for these registry hacks, as the G400 isn't supported or found through the 3DSetup program.

My first reg-hack was:

Check in the d3dsetup if it's chosen the right videocard (being the G400)
If it didn't, check in the registry that on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ELECTRONIC ARTS\3D DATA\CARD6 it shows Group "D3D" and Name "Matrox G400"
If anything else shows there, change it to Matrox G400.

My second reg-hack would go like this:

Start regedit and goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ELECTRONIC ARTS\Need For Speed High Stakes

Where it says 3D Card and 3D Device Description, you could go through the hassle of renaming it "Matrox G400", but really necessary it isn't http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif
The D3DDevice should be edited to a value of 1, as well as Triple Buffer (also 1).

Rebooting Windows is needed for the registry to be read again, after which you continue to your 3D setup in the NFS:HS folder/under Start etc. Put the 3D renderer to 3D Device 1 (or if you changed the name like above, to G400).

Now start the game and put your name in, choose a single race. Do not go to Start Race, but to the Options. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

From there, pick Graphics, Advanced Settings, and check that Triple Buffer is on (if you see a lag in graphics ingame, put this option to off !!), as well as Z-buffer is on, all the others should be set as high as possible, fog on, lens-flare on.

Now go back to the graphics screen (with the done button in the left-lower corner), and set your screen resolution to 800x600x32(z) or 1024x768x32(z) ...

Then set the rest of your preferences.

The game should work okay now. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Addition for Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Electronic Arts\Need For Speed - Porsche 2000

Set Triple Buffer to 1 to enable it. For most of you this will give smoother gameplay. If you experience choppiness, go back to Triple Buffer value 0

Addenum for Need For Speed: Porsche Unleashed: The trainer http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

It's given me more stability in the game, less dumps back to the desktop (Still got one in Normandie sometimes).

So I put this small file (6k) on my homepage server. You can download it from there.

Link? NFS5 Trainer and ALL tracks and most cars (http://home.planet.nl/~elst0093/trainers/nfs5train.zip)
