I'm trying to find a way to lock/limit the frame rate to 30 FPS.

I'd rather 30 FPS constant than jumps between 30 and 60.

I found the game settings config here to lock the fps.

This 'game' is garbage.

Each car has only the same 4 races which give you upgrades for the car you complete the races with, you cant move upgrades from one car to the next you have to do the same races over and over and over and over again for each car you find, then as you get higher points you can race against the "most wanted".

The games industry wonders why people pirate games, look at this pile of crap, 4 races....... 10 chases, all for $60?????

There are four race TYPES outside of the Most Wanted set, but every car does not get the same races.

And honestly, if you're playing a racing game and sticking to one car the entire time, what fun is that?

Plus you're skipping the chases and open world content.

What you described would last maybe an hour. Most people will play long past that.

(Also, it's five races per car.)

Here FPS stay at around 60 most if the time during exploring. But in race, the crazy fluctuations does my ###### in.

The Run, had the same issue until a "tool" was released to disable

v-sync on Radeon cards, then later on provided the option for nvidia

... i hope they release a patch with option this soon :(

I almost bought it, until i realized it doesn't have the map (open world)

and only 10 tracks .... :glare:

No map? Didn't look hard enough - it *does* have a minimap (ala Burnout Paradise) - races are highlighted (green for easy, yellow for medium, red for hard).

Paint shops and garages, like gas stations, are added to the map as you find them (again, ala BP).

Some events (such as most evasion events) are triggered by things you do in the open world/EasyDrive - my first evasion event was triggered by my hitting an FCPD cop car on I-92.

Yes - it basically IS Burnout Paradise; however, that is a bad thing why?

The FCPD cop cars - apparently the FCPD is on a Ford kick, as they are primarily Ford Escapes - pretty darn sensible, believe it or not.

Several differences we should beware of (compared to Paradise City - the setting in Burnout Paradise) - while apparently there are a lot of similarities between Paradise City and the equally-fake Fairhaven County, this is a COUNTY police department we are facing off against; they can, and in some cases certainly will, chase us from pillar to post all over the map (and all over Fairhaven County).

FCPD Escapes - If anything, the real-world Escape is what the Hunter Civilian wanted to be when it grew up. The Escape is basically a roadgoing Bradley - a lot tougher (and certainly a lot heavier) than what we'll be driving in most cases. Don't try to NASCAR them - more often than not, you'll lose.

Has anyone found a decent controller for the PC version of this game? I'm currently using the keyboard (I utterly refuse to surrender to *consolitis* - even though I am quite aware this is a port, thank you), and I HAVE found that as you speed up, the controls - even the keyboard - becomes less of a twitchfest.

I don't know why people spend launch price on NFS games. They usually tank after a couple of months (well most games). I got NFS Run a few weeks ago for $7 on Newegg. Sure, you might get "launch pack cars" but meh. Take it from someone who's bought some NFS games at launch only to be disappointed. They need to continue the Shift series!

Will you listen to yourselves here?

The SHIFT series is basically a racing sim series - that is utterly untrue of any other NFS series (not of Most Wanted (even the original) and NEVER of Hot Pursuit)!

If you want racing sims, stick to the SHIFT series - that is, after all, its reason for being.

I utterly loathe SHIFT entirely BECAUSE it's a racing sim - I despise racing sims (I have equal loathing for GRiD and the F1 series, so it's not unique to SHIFT) in general - not merely SHIFT or SHIFT2 in particular.

i meant is not as open world as the console/PC counterparts

the map is there, but not the map events and what not ... :)

While i do own a PS3 (meeeh) im NO fan of consoles at all

but the keyboard just doesnt cut it ...

been using this one since the original most wanted came out

http://www.logitech.com/en-us/support/game-gear/264

the new revised model doesnt feel quite the same (precision, button response)

but may just be me :laugh:

I've used a 360 controller for every racing game I've played for years on PC.

Where did I say I hate the MW series? I like both types of games, simply because Shift is the racing sim, and this series is the more arcade/fun racing game. I just like racing games in general, and like to try them out. I just can't justify spending $40+ on an NFS series title, when I know it will tank in price later. Also, we haven't had a Shift series in a while, so I'm hoping one day we'll see a Shift 3.

Gotta say I love the music on this one. Three thumbs up (what? where'd it come from? don't ask ;) )

Back to gauging this game's performance on different hardware, I tried this game on my laptop. (Yay for cloud saves - finally.)

Settings were mostly medium and low, and it knocked the resolution down to 1024x768, but the game still looked great and the game was playable. Laptop's the Alienware m11x r2 with a i7 640UM, Geforce GT 335M, and 8 GB of RAM. Had to force off VSync in the control panel as for some reason, games in this Optimus config completely tank if VSync is enabled.

Also, completely random but after the first jump in Hunted, I went into cooldown mode even though I was in air and landing right in front of two police SUVs... wat.

After playing it extensively for 4 days, I have come to a conclusion that this game thoroughly sucks ass. I did reach Most wanted Lvl 3 but just uninstalled it completely.

Basically, there was nothing happening. I used to get engaged in petty police chases while trying to reach a certain destination for a race. It got annoying and monotonous. The FPS bouncing around was an icing on the cake.

What a wasted opportunity !!!!

I did hate the name Criterion being plastered around at any given opportunity. Now that name has cemented in my mind, I know what to avoid.

I never will again...Learned my lesson.

Its pretty difficult to keep track of all the cars. You are driving to your event in your Bentley, and you see the Lamborghini. You can't resist and get into it. And then Bentley is forgotten. Pretty quickly

That's why I'm trying to do them alphabetically, and I like to run every race for the car I'm driving once I get it. I like to get the "feel" of one car at a time, if that's possible with a xbox 360 controller. :)

Anybody played this yet? It's impossibly difficult, you have little options for outrunning police and whenever you enter cooldown, random roadblocks magically crop up just in front of you and surrounding units seem to get drawn to you at speeds quicker than light. Paint and car changes do nothing to throw them off and driving through bill boards doesn't lose them.

While driving to an event, if you go too fast while passing a police car they'll chase you and it quickly becomes an hour long pursuit with no hopes but to get busted. :/

There's nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, welcome to Need For Speed: Hell on Earth. Definite disappointment.

I think there's one person in here that agrees with you. The rest of us not so much.

^^ Also this, I've had similar stuff happen, I'm being chased and suddenly enter cooldown mode even though I'm surrounded by police. Think this games just got a lot of bugs.

In past games bugs like that were caused by streaming engines glitching. I'd ask if you're running 32 bit OSes, if you ever defrag your hard drive, what kind of vidcard you're running, and stuff like that. It is pushing a lot of data so if you lower your settings you might also be fine.

So,... I beat the Alfa Romeo guy and took him down too.

I am nearing 8th and still can't find a decent car to race against the 9th. I think I'll maximiz that Nissan

So the game was finally shipped to me, but since I am now without power for the 6th day now because of Hurricane Sandy, I have not been able to check it out.

With that said, I was able to download the Vita version once I left my home for my in-laws since they do have power, and I have been really enjoying it. From what I have read online, the Vita version really is the same as the console version, just some concessions had to be made to run it.

So I do have some questions, and apologies if they have been discussed, but being without power means I have not been able to follow this thread. So with the Vita version, in some places, the text is really, really hard to read. It is incredibly tiny, and presented in the same way it would be on the consoles. So my main question... How exactly should one approach playing this game? I have just been sticking with 1 car, the Marussia B2, and I just defeated Most Wanted 7 I believe it was. I have this car pretty damn maxed out, but it appears I have done most of all of the main races for it. So if I switch over to other cars, will I get new races, or do all cars just have the same races?

I tried changing to a few differrent cars, and it seemed the races were the same ones I have already done. So is the car irrelevant, and you only get the same races regardless? If so, that seems pretty damn weak for sure, and there does not seem to be any real incentive to switch cars. If not, are certain cars better than others to pick?

But I have to say, even reading that the Vita version and the console version are very identical in many ways, I am really looking forward to playing it on the console. One of the hardest things about playing the Vita version is the size of everything. At times, it is really hard to avoid crashing just because of the sheer scale of things on the screen, so really think it is going to be a much more visceral experience on the PS3. But even with that said, the Vita version is a whole lot of fun. Definitely.

You can race the top 10 with ANY car,.... i took down the shelby with the lancia, all due to "rubber band" AI :)

What's truly annoying (as mentioned in this thread) is that if you've set the route, but switch cars on the way there

the "Easy drive" will be reset :/

How exactly should one approach playing this game?

You find a car in a JackSpot around the city, hop in and you have series of different races, which will earn you upgrades, which you should be aware of by now.

So if I switch over to other cars, will I get new races, or do all cars just have the same races?

Every car has its own upgrades. No car passes its own to another one. Nd no, the cars are relevant.

Some cars, I found till now, are indeed more well rounded than others, atleast for me they were. e.g. Nissan' car, whose model I forgot, is looking pretty good to me and I am sticking with it for some time because it has a more well rounded performance sheet

The type is the same. However, the places and difficulty level, are obviously different
