NFSMW: nVidia - New Forceware Driver with open Issues Saturday, 18.03.2006
nVidia ForcewarenVidia released a new version of its driver package Forceware, but the new version 84.21 just brings the improvement of a WHQL certification. But who is using an older version than 81.98 should think about an update, because with this version nVidia fixed some rendering problems in Need for Speed Most Wanted.

Unfortunately there are still some open issues listed in the current release notes, which will be fixed maybe with the next version. With a GeForce 6600 SLI car textures are corrupted in Need for Speed Most Wanted when antialiazing is enabled from the NVIDIA panel. Additionally the GeForce 7800 GTX has problems under Windows XP with widescreen resolutions when playing NFS Underground 2.

Further information you can find in the release notes:

NFSMW: No Patch is coming Thursday, 16.03.2006
NFSMWAlthough Electronic Arts collected information about problems in the game (we wrote about this) they decided not to make another Patch for Need for Speed Most Wanted and the game is stuck at v1.3. The reasons - as written in the official discussion boards - are a lack of time and ressources. The only positive thing is, that the collected information will be used for any future NFS releases.

Final result - there will not be another patch for Most Wanted.

Longer version - While I'm sure very few of you are surprised by this, there was a good deal of internal debate surrounding this patch and whether to proceed. While there was never a question of whether there should be support for the community, the issues were a matter of time and resources. Both of which were not available.

The positive however, is that all the information collected on this issue won't be tossed aside and will be used for any future releases.

So with that, I can only add that I'm sorry I couldn't do more.

NFSMW: Interview with Charles Deenen Sunday, 05.03.2006
NFSMWTheStig made an interview with Need for Speed Most Wanted Senior Audio Director Charles Deenen, who talks about the sound recordings of the cars.
The main topic is the effort they put in their work, and what is the difference to similar computer games. For NFS Most Wanted approximately 40 cars have been recorded (at NFSU2 they recorded 40-45), with at least 8 channels each, sometimes even up to 16! They recorded each car in the stand and on the road to get the perfect shift mechanism.

An interesting answer on the question why the horn is missing in the game, is the following:

Imagine having 1.9mb of ram to squeeze all sound in. And now we're faced with trying to cram everything in. Something had to go. But the main reason is that we don't have a button left on the PS2 controller. All of them are used.

It's not a good evolution that PC users become less important than consoles and PC-specific features are left out. Just think of the menue in the onlinemode...

Back to the interview: It is really worth reading it and at the bottom you will find some fotos from the sound recordings. You can find this article at our affiliate NFSUnlimited:
