For example with the command "NFS3 -D3D" one can start the game in Direct3D mode without the need for any registry values. However I have no idea if Need for speed 4 also uses those switches. At least this demo version seems to only accept the -patchrestart switch.
Ok. First of all a little preamble:The game was released with several official EA patches, I have found traces of a v4.00, v4.40, v4.42 and v4.44 patched. Each patch seems to require some update not only on the executable file, but only on the game files.I got the game running with (I think) a 4.00 release, so maybe the procedure won't work with a patched game installation.Here how I did:1) install the game2) replace the nfshs.exe file with the no-CD crack included in the WinXP patch (I didn't install the whole patch!)3) replace d3da.dll with the smame file from need for speed 3 And that's it. I'll double-check the process later on Win10, but on Win7 it worked and (curiously) it wasn't necessary to rename nfsse.exe to overcome the shim problem.... weird!Often I got a pop-up message telling something about "corrupted files, please reinstall": I believe this happens when the patched executable and the patched files don't match the save exact version, so a double-check is necessary, in case after so mani install and reinstall I wrote something wrong....These are the files, if anyone is interested in replicating the procedure.
ah ha, i switched from the None to Primary Buffer and it is able to streching the window to higher resolution. Nothing to bother now.gho, do you wanna take a look into the hot paching problem on the T-Zwei thread? I can provide some testing if you need.
I remember a long time ago, around 2005 or so, running High Stakes on an X800 without needing to do anything 'funky' but I'm also certian that I pirated it back then and who knows what was patched and stuffed in to those pirated copies along side a NoCD crack. Where as today I have retail CDs via flea market finds.
Son, as far as i can tell you, from my experience with ea games, which is very long, since the old days of high stakes on ps1 and even before, they will never do anything to fix the always online problem on this game, the only thing that is gonna work is, dont buy anything from them anymore, is that simple, we have some great companies that cares about their games and their public.
The growth in technological applications to manage the expansion and development of victimservice organizations, enhance case management and tracking information for both victims andoffenders, and simplify and expand communications through the worldwide "InformationSuperhighway," holds great promise for the discipline of victims' rights and services. Knowledge about and use of existing and emerging technologies can save greatly needed time,money, and human resources for victim advocates and crime victims (Seymour 1995, 1).
Public awareness about and community involvement in victims' rights and services comprise akey goal of victim service and allied justice agencies. Many innovative applications (fromcomputerized graphic design software packages, to basic electronic billboards, to the widespreaduse of the World Wide Web) have both complemented and simplified the presentation andtransfer of information to interested parties about victims' rights and services. The speed of thetransfer of information has resulted in community awareness and public education activities thatare timely, matching the speed in which response and support from parties interested in victims'rights and services are needed.
Many innovative applications of technology today are designed specifically to "fill in the cracks"of a system and services that should be designed to protect victims. For example, victim caseinformation can be electronically and confidentially attached to his or her offender's electroniccase file for easy access and rapid retrieval. Furthermore, victim case information within oneagency can be accessed by legitimate and authorized staff, even in the event that a victim's directcase worker is inaccessible at the time the information is needed.
Joint ventures require joint risks, as well as mutual understanding of expectations and outcomes. Some vendors feel that the public sector doesn't understand or appreciate the high costs ofresearch and development necessary to launch a new technology. On the other hand, someprofessionals in the public sector feel that vendors need to gain a better understanding of theconstraints they face in terms of time, human resources, and funding.
The "Information Superhighway" has radically changed communications throughout the world. The speed and scope of human interactions have expanded considerably. Access to informationthrough the World Wide Web today crosses jurisdictional, geographical, cultural and linguisticlines. This remarkable progress holds great implications for victims of crime and those whoserve them.
