It kinda funny when people start complaining and arguing that they have state of the art computer which could run Crysis at maximum setting and GRID at ultra setting but suffer performance choppiness when they played Need For Speed Undercover.
Among the complains are :
- Bad framerate even at low resolution and mediacore graphics setting
- Poor world rendering quality
- Jagged shadow (anti-aliasing not work)
- Poor overall graphics quality even every settings are max out
- etc etc
Undercover actually use Prostreet 3D engine which undergone major tweaks here and there to produce stunning graphics quality. To be honest, I pretty impress with overall NFS Undercover graphics quality, fluidity and gameplay. I am using Core 2 Duo (2 cores) and ATI Radeon 4850 and 2 GB of RAMs (Vista). But, why most of the forumers keep complaining that their NFS Undercover really sux big time?
I discover this one when my younger brother ask me the same question. Our computer basically has same performance (his computer use C2D, 2 GB of RAMs and GeForce 9800 GTX) but he seriously suffer bad framerate and graphics quality. The only difference between us is, I use original NFS Undercover while he use pirated one. It doesn’t make sense at first but it actually do.
The real culprit is paul.dll crack files. When I replace this crack paul.dll over my original paul.dll, immediately my NFS Undercover become seriously hideos game. Overwrite back the cracked paul.dll with original paul.dll, everything return to normal.
So, in order to help my brother (but I can’t afford to send him my original copy of NFS (I am NFS Collector, so I don’t mind to pay RM90.00 for this game) due to geographical distance), I did try to find alternative solution and fortunately found one.
I do not promote any kind of piracy. But, I assume that anyone who bought the original games deserve to make a backup copy for their own personal use (I did). I am not willing to abuse my original collector game disc by any means. So, for this reason, here is the proper fix for your backup copy (or ahem ahem copy) of NFS Undercover.
Please note that you need to replace your cracked paul.dll with original paul.dll either you reinstall your NFS Undercover your you use mine (as per attach in that 7zip file).
