Jun 19, 2020 Need for Speed - Underground 2 (Full Game Repack Download) Description. The story begins after the player has beaten Eddie's street gang - 'The Eastsiders' in Olympic City. The player is now revered as the best street racer in Olympic City. The player is called after the final race by a bald man with an 'invitation' to join his team.
Need for Speed Underground 2 was released on November 9th, 2004. All those years on and it is still regarded as one of the best racing games of all time. I remember the day vividly. It was a Tuesday and I was given the game as a gift from a friend of the family.
I was only 12 years old so the hype was real. All those years on. Never did I think I would be downloading the game again. Although now I can play Need For Speed Underground 2 Widescreen.
Need for Speed Underground 2 v1.2 patch. Update Need for Speed Underground 2 to version 1.2 to fix bugs and improve performance. Yes, whereas the previous NFS outing, Hot Pursuit 2, indulged us with Ferrari fantasies amid the rolling hills of a tropical fantasy world, Need For Speed Underground follows Rockstar's Midnight Club II down to the dirty, neon-soaked streets of the urban sprawl - without the needless violence, of course.
It’s actually quite straightforward. To play Need For Speed Underground 2 Widescreen. You need to download the Need For Speed Underground 2 patching software. The patching software enables you to change the in-game resolution. However, you can only patch the game if you have a cracked version of Underground 2. Cracked means the game has been altered by somebody so it can be played on any computer. Essentially, you don’t need a product key to play the game.

Free Cracked Copy of Need For Speed Underground 2
I’ve updated this post since making it a while back. I’ve since found a free copy of the game complete with 1080p compatibility. It also has both graphics mods by Dragozool and High Visions.
I highly recommend using the High Visions Mod because it gives the best visuals overall, in my opinion. Try both and see what you think. When you download the file, there may be updates to Textmod or other applications. Make sure to update them if you see something off with the game.

But I don’t have a cracked Need For Speed Underground 2
But how do I get a cracked version you say? Don’t worry I have compiled everything you need to make the process as streamlined as possible. Follow the step by step guide below. To patch NFSU2 to widescreen.
How to Patch Need for Speed Underground 2 to Widescreen
Step 1: Download the Need For Speed Underground 2 Widescreen ZIP File Below
The first thing you should do is download the files below. Do this by clicking on the download link below. The file you download will contain a cracked version of NFSU2. It will also include the software you need to patch the game.
I have also included other cracked versions as a backup. This is in case the first one doesn’t work. Finally, you will find an EU car file and a US car file. I will explain more about that later. After you download the file move on to Step 2.
Step 2: Extract the folder to your Desktop
When you have downloaded the ZIP folder. Create a new folder on your Desktop and name it “NFSU2 Widescreen”. It doesn’t really matter what you name it honestly. Just name it something you will remember so it is easy to find.
Next, go to the ZIP folder and open it. Extract the files inside the ZIP folder to your new folder “NFSU2 Widescreen”. After you have extracted the files to your new folder. Step 3 will tell you what to do with them.
If you can’t open ZIP files I recommend downloading WinRAR. They’re the compression tool I use all the time. I love it because it’s free to use.
Step 3: V1.2 Patch and Backup your files
Take a look in your new folder. You should see 5 folders and 2 other ZIP folders. The folders are:
- Cracked Speed2.exe
- EU Cars
- US Cars
- V1.2 patcher
- Wide Patcher
- Speed 2 (X2)
Firstly, open the V1.2 patcher folder. Here you will find the patcher for the US version of the game and the UK/EU version of the game. If you’re not from the EU. Use the US version and run the patcher. This will update your game files to the latest version of NFSU2. If you’re from the EU use the UK patcher to update your game files.
Secondly, Go into the “cracked speed2.exe” folder. Here you will find a speed2.exe file. This is a cracked version of NFSU2. You need to copy this file into your Need For Speed Underground 2 root folder.
However, before you do this. Please go to your Need For Speed U2 root folder. Find your original speed2.exe file and copy and paste it somewhere else. This is a backup file in case the patcher doesn’t work. Whatever you do. Do not replace this file with the cracked file. You could end up breaking your game.
Step 4: Boot up UNIWS tool and Find speed2.exe
After you have replaced the original speed2.exe with the cracked version. Go back to the NFSU2 Widescreen folder and open the folder called widepatcher. Here you will find the uniws tool and patches file.
Right-click and run as administrator. The widescreen patcher will boot up. At the top menu, you will be given the option to choose which game you want to patch. Click on Need For Speed Underground 2.
When you do that. Click the “Find it for me” button. The tool will find the speed2.exe file in your NFSU2 root folder.
Step 5: Set your Resolution and Patch the Game
Finally, type in the resolution you want to play the game on. In this case, it will be Screen Width: 1920, Height: 1080. When you have done this click the Patch button at the bottom right of the tool.
You should be able to play the game on widescreen monitors now. Remember to set the screen resolution in-game to 640×480 to use this feature.
TroubleshootingNeed for Speed Underground 2 Widescreen
I cannot set the resolution to 1080
If you cannot set the resolution from inside the UNIWS tool. It means the speed2.exe file is not cracked. You need to go to the other speed2 files in the folder you downloaded from here. Extract them and repeat the process from step 3. However, you do not need to patch the game to v1.2 again.
My game keeps crashing when I exit shops and garages in free roam
This is annoying, isn’t it? Happened to me too. Fortunately, I have a solution. This is where the US and EU car files come into use. If you have the US version of the game. Go into the car directory in your Need for Speed Underground 2 root folder and copy and paste the EU car files in. Follow these steps:
- Step 1: Go back to your NFSU2 Widescreen folder and find the EU cars folder. There you will find the folders for the Peugeot 106 and Corsa. Copy these two folders
- Step 2: Locate your Need for Speed Underground 2 root folder
- Step 3: Open the root folder and find the cars folder. Open the car folder.
- Step 4: Paste the Peugeot 106 and Corsa folders in here.
That should stop the game from freezing when entering and exiting buildings in free roam. Repeat the same steps if you have the EU version of the game. Except, copy and paste the US cars into the cars folder.
The game is stuck on a black loading screen when I try to play it
For this bug, I searched around and found various solutions. So I will share them all with you here. The first solution is to always boot the game as an administrator. The second is to boot the game in compatibility mode especially if you are using Windows 10.
To set the game to always run as administrator and in compatibility mode. Follow the steps below:
- Step 1: Find the speed2.exe file in your Need for Speed root folder
- Step 2: Right-click on it and select Properties. Look for the Compatibility mode option.
- Step 3: Select the Compatibility tab at the top right
- Step 4: Click the option “Run this program in compatibility mode for”. This will be selected when you see the tick in the box.
- Step 5: Click Windows XP Service Pack 2
- Step 6: Scroll down and select the option to run this program as administrator
Boot up your game and try it out. The crashes should be gone.
Other pesky bugs
If you insert the UK cars into the US game. And vice versa with the US cars. You may run into some freezing issues. If you are playing the US version of the game and select an EU car.
Sometimes the game may freeze during load screens. This same thing occurs if you select a US car when playing the EU game. I have yet to find a solution to this. The only way to get around it is to not use the foreign cars. Let me know if you have found another way around this.
If you have followed the 5 simple steps. You should be able to play Need For Speed Underground 2 in widescreen. Make sure to reach out in the comment section if you have any issues or questions. If you enjoyed the guide. I recommend you check out more gaming guides here. Trust me you’ll like them.

The Older need for speed games are probably the ones WITHOUT THE PAY TO WIN STUFF AND THEYRE BETTER.
Do I have to download the Disk 2?
Whats the code for need for speed underground 2 disk 1
Adrish Pal2021-07-293 points
while installing it is saying that please insert disk number 2
Thanks for sharing this! I followed 'UPDATED INSTALL GUIDE's and 'BK2010's guide step by step and it works great!
PS.: I assume there is no way i can get the game's audio / video (not just switching the text!) in other languages?
Please upload NFS Carbon here too, it was removed from Steam, so we cannot obtain it legally anymore.
Also if you do not want to overwrite the orignal speed2.exe with the noCD patch then make a copy of the orignal and place it somewhere else before pasting the noCD patch into the game installation.
Most simple way to do it (if you have the game installed and a shortcut exists on the desktop) right the shortcut and click open file location, this will bring you directly to were the game was installed, now open a new window for Windows explorer (leaving the current window open where the game is installed) navigate to the cracked no cd patch and copy it, go back to the window were the game installation is and paste the patch by overwriting the existing speed2.exe.
You will need mounting software to mount the images
Windows (DAEMON Tools Lite) nofree or (WinCDEmu) free.
Both can be found on the Internet, Daemon tools is not free (might be a trail version)
WinCDemu is free, although that software is quite old now so not too sure you can still get it. However I think Windows 10 has built in mounting software despite it's other downfalls.
we have to wait in the future
honestly im confused AF anyone have a full guide of how i can install this game i keep getting stuck after the intial install when it ask me to enter disk 2
Naufal Dzol2021-04-270 point
@BK2010 may I ask something? So about the NoCD patch, first how do I mount the image before installing the game?
can someone give me a guide on how to replace the NoCD SPEED2 with the speed2 on disk 2? i am stuck at this part, and dont want to delete this
It would be amazing if you include the European version. But at least we can download this game in a place of trust.
Hey, so I don't know if anyone else has this problem or maybe I did something wrong. But everytime I try to drop the .dll file it says it there is not enough space on the disk.
Same when I copy the speed2.exe from nocd. It just says that there is no space left instead of replacing it. Some steps I forgot or am I gonna have to start a prayer?
Played through almost the entire game, but now I get a CTD every time i try to load the actual game world. Reinstalling the exe used to fix it but now im no longer able to play. Anyone have a fix for this?
Mine has installed perfectly, running sweet as a nut however I cant get my controller to switch for racing, works perfectly in menus. Just doesn't change the keys for racing (I have changed and tested after to check but still no joy) Any ideas?
Sounds like your trying to copy the Speed2.exe file to the mounted image and not were you installed the game? or you have actually have no space left.
How do I replace the Speed2 file? Every time I try to move the new Speed2 file into the folder, it simply says 'There is insufficient space.' It gives me no option to overwrite or replace. I've tried everything I can think of and I'm just totally unsure what I'm doing wrong.
@UPDATED INSTALL GUIDE
I wouldn't say completely ignore my guide, personally I would avoid KeyGens 'most' of them are malware. I my guide I have included the key needed to get the game going,some useful spec info along info for getting the game working on Linux, another way of doing it in general, I take it your guide is soley for windows though.
However I thank you for the very useful tip regarding the game crashing, wasn't too sure as to why that was :)
ADDENDUM TO THE GUIDE2021-03-040 point
I'm not entirely sure if the controller fixes are enabled by default with the Widescreen Fix patch, so make sure to open the .ini file and set ImproveGamepadSupport to the right number for you.
UPDATED INSTALL GUIDE2021-03-044 points
Alright, here's the best, hopefully idiot-proof install guide for this classic. Ignore BK2010's guide as it has some issues and is outdated.
Step 1: Install the game by mounting the ISO for CD1 and running the setup.exe, then mounting CD2 when prompted. You can get a key for the game online or use a Keygen.
Step 2: Install the 1.2 update, it's absolutely necessary to have it! In most cases, it'll be a matter of just running the executable and the patch will install itself super-fast without having to do anything.
Step 3: Crack the game, aka overwrite SPEED2.EXE with the one from the NoCD download.
Step 4: Install the Widescreen Fix for the game, which also fixes some issues and allows you to properly play with a controller. You can find it here:
Just open the file and drop the .dll and the scripts folder into the same directory as your SPEED2.EXE. It'll work on its own, but you can tinker with the settings, found in the 'scripts' folder, if you need to and know what you're doing. If you have issues with the game crashing when entering shops and stuff like that, open the .ini file and change SingleCoreAffinity = 0 to = 1.
Step 5: Right click the executable, go to Properties, and set Compatibility Mode to Windows XP (Service Pack 2).
Step 6: Run the game. It should be at your desktop resolution by default, and if you plan on using a controller you really should change the controls. When rebinding them, don't be confused by the button that shows up; the inputs will be set to whatever you pressed, even if it displays a completely different button.
Step 7: Profit. Ideally you should be good to go. I recommend adding a couple more mods, particularly Extra Options, to fix up other problems the game has and get more out of the game.
There you go! If the game still doesn't work for you, then pray to the old gods or do some ritualistic dance: there's no further help I can give you at this point.
Jimmy J2021-01-110 point
It worked perfect for me.
I mounted the ISOs, installed the game with the key, and replaced the SPEED2.exe with the NOCD one. When I try to launch the game with the new speed2.exe the screen goes black for a bit and it doesn't load the game.
I'm on Windows 10, what can I do to run the game?
it worked when i used a different crack than the one provided. also had to run the UniWS as adminastrator to get it to work. Even then, sometimes the game crashed while playing, but it happened rarely so i guess it's tolerable, just save after every race.
C e a p a V e r d e2020-11-220 point
Uhm so yeah i do not know why or how but the NOcD patch dose not work for me. I did intaled as the comentator BK2010 said, and the application just closes it's self in a second. Any help ?
If anyone is on low spec trying to run this and need more Frames per second, turn off High contrast and overbright settings, biggest fps killers, and to be honest the game looks better without them :)
Forget it, I have found da wae, follow BK2010 instructions, I didn't try playing without the patch, but probably it will run without it.
The thing is, instead of using the normal NoCd, use the one in this site:
That'll do it, good luck in the canyons of your life.
So I am on Win 10 and got the game to start only with both image files mounted, I already replaced SPEED2.exe, but somehow it is not working without the discs yet. :(
Need For Speed Underground 2 free. download full Version For Pc Softonic
i'm getting an installation error saying 'a problem occurred trying to transfer the file E:Moviesblank.vp6 from the media' i tried to restart the installation and nothing happened... any suggestions?
Small guide to get the game working:
WORKS WITHOUT THE NEED TO USE THE 1.2 PACTH
you only need this patch if you plan have
a NVIDIA 6800 which the patch offers better performance
or if your going to host LAN games.
What you will need:
Min spec requirements: for mostly low settings @ 640x480 res with 30fps
CPU: Pentium III or Athlon XP
CPU SPEED: 933 mhz
RAM: 256 MB
OS: Windows 98/98SE/ME/2000/XP
TOTAL VIDEO RAM: 32 MB
DIRECTX VERSION: 8.1
FREE DISK SPACE: 2 GB
CPU: Pentium 4 or Athlon XP (Or any decent single core or multithreaded single core)
CPU SPEED: 2 Ghz
RAM: 512 MB
OS: Windows XP
TOTAL VIDEO RAM: 128 MB
DIRECTX VERSION: 8.1
FREE DISK SPACE: 3 GB
You will need mounting software to mount the images
Windows (DAEMON Tools Lite) nofree or (WinCDEmu) free
Copy of the game.
NoCD patch (FOUND AT THE END OF THIS PAGE)
1. Mount images
2. Install game
3. When asked for key enter
4. Copy the speed2.exe you got from extractig the NoCD patch
to the same directory the game is installed, you will be
asked if you want to repace the speed2.exe currently present
there, yes you do :)
5. Download the Universal Widescreen (UniWS) Patcher
(Skip this step if you don't higher resolutions and widescreen)
this will allow you set a custom widescreen resolution, as the game
without it only goes to 1024x768, but make the resolution in the game
set to 640x480, you can set the games custom higher resolution with
the UniWs patcher.
5. Launch, configure your graphics settings and enjoy the game
If you want to put a copy of the game on another computer, simply copy the
entire Need for speed Underground 2 folder (after doing all the above) onto
a external USB, then you can simply copy to anywhere on the other computer
or you can simply run the game from the USB stick.
More notes: Game tested and works on Windows 7,also runs on Linux with wine
but I recommend doing all the above and then simply copy the installation folder
to USB, then in Linux (change directory) to the Game and simply run the speed2.exe with wine.
Some Linux crashes were observed, while this can happen, it does not happen all
the time and could be limited to only my setup.
@Misfit: You need to download the nocd patch on from this page and copy over the Speed2.exe to replace the one where you installed the game, then the game should launch.
So I got it to install, but everytime I try to launch the game, it says I need to insert the correct disk.
I tried launching it with both ISOs opened, and tried each open alone and it keeps saying it. What should I do here? It's most likely stupidly easy but I can't figure it out.
