You already got bored by the Need for Speed Underground Intro? This small tool can help you, so that the starting movies won't show up.
Replace the movie files in the movies directory with these 3 movie files.
I'm making this article to inventorize any issues not adressed or unsolved. I want to do this as a sanity check because in the past I would enthausiastically jump the gun when I seemingly solved an issue when on a more thourough view nothing was solved at all. So once more people witness the issue in question is solved the page editor can decide to include it.
Problem: Framerate stutter
A severe gameplay problem are the constant framerate drops this game is having even on high end machines. I think the gamedevelopers already had this issue and probably tried to make it less noticable to lock the framerate to 30fps in the version 1.1 patch.
I think I have remedied this issue though. What I have done is using the NFS Pro Street Generic Fix and use windowed mode. You can then use Borderless Gaming to run the game at fullscreen at your desired resolution. With v-sync enabled my gameplay experience was significantly improved, so I'd like to hear what anyone else has to say about it.
Problem: Low soundvolume when using surround
Maybe just a Windows 10 problem or something related to my hardware (Creative Audigy RX) and not a very serious problem but when I choose Surround in the soundoptions I have to significantly increase the volume.
Use IndirectSound. When the .dll's are copied into the gamefolder I have proper soundvolume now.
Problem: Game won't launch when using Generic Fix and ReShade together
Not a biggie but I like to use ReShade as I use it in many games but the game crashes on launch when using them both. I tried standalone versions of SweetFX but they also crash or just refuse to work. I don't understand what could be the problem as the Generic Fix uses dinput8.dll while Reshade uses D3D9.dll.
None at this time or use either the Generic Fix (recommended) or ReShade.
Problem: Unlocking boosterpack extra cars
