Hey guys, its been a long long time.. i miss NFS Cars :D
I'm finally running NFS PU! At first there was a problem with the screen position but i fixed that by switching the colors to 16bit. But after starting a race i noticed that all textures appear to be shitty:

Porsche Unleashed has a cpu speed test that switches to low res textures if the cpu is too slow. However this test now fails on modern PC's with much faster cpus. There's a fix for this. I made a zip that includes several fixes:
Link to zip to extract over fresh install of NFS Porsche Unleashed. Includes enhanced 3.5 porsche.exe that maintains control after race, hud options on replay. Porsche.exe also patched with fast cpu (> 2.1ghz) fix that prevents game from going into low res texture mode on fast cpus. dx7z.dll patched to only select from 32 bit color modes. The 4 bugs in nfs5.car are fixed, although this will not affect existing savegames. There's a separate program to fix the same 4 bugs in an existing savegame.
The 4 bugs in fedata\data\nfs5.car, that were fixed
Bug: The 550 A Spyder doesn't have any tires to install.
Fix: Allow the 550 normal tires, rain tires, or slicks.
Bug: The 1960 356B cars don't allow the standard bumper.
Fix: Allow the standard bumper.
Bug: The 911 (993) cars don't allow rim style 4
Fix: Allow rim style 4
Bug: The 1997 911 doesn't allow profesional racing brakes.
Fix: Allow the professional racing brakes.
Bug: The 1997 911 allows class 1 and 2 carbon fiber quarterpanels.
Fix: Only allow the class 2 carbon fiber quarterpanel.
This zip contains a savegame with all of the above fixes and all cars in the game. It will work with either the original or the fixed nfs5.car.
This zip contains only the replacement for fedata\data\nfs5.car plus the original as nfs5org.car. It's only useful if you're redoing career, because the data in nfs5.car is copied into your savegame whenever you buy or win a car. Any existing cars in your savegame will not have the fixes made to nfs5.car. A separate program will fix an existing savegame.
