Agreed.

Let's try and keep the discussion a little on-topic here please, people. Nothing wrong with a joke now and then, but save the random posts and images for the Off-Topic Board please.

Thanks for replies on my problem.

Hope I didn't give people a headache like I got from it.

I decided to leave it alone for a while and wait for a new VEG patch update.

With dx7 I have the benefits of the patch (higher poly limit) and I don't need taskmanager to stop the process.

I so much want the great graphics back that I had before with just EP pack and nGlide.

Dx7 is no bad choice.
Use dx7a.dll from beta http://veg.by/files/nfs4/nfs4_modern_patch_beta.7z
And set Type=voodoo in the ./drivers/dx7/thrash.ini
You will have almost same visuals as with Voodoo Glide.

If you wanna give nglide another shot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYWUOXWrAQI
At this youtube video a fully configured Modern Patch folder with nglide preset can be obtained.
I have tested that on a friends PC. Not even needed to install nGlide. Just start the game with nfs4.exe and set your resolution ingame.

Couldn't resist to try again:

-First option gives me bad graphics in the game menu's, but great graphics in race.

-With fully configured modern patch I get better graphics overall, but a race is very slow.And I need taskmanager again to end the process.

To anyone having problems running the game in the DirectX modes, remember that the latest Windows versions don't ship with DirectX 9 and below. It's necessary to install the DirectX 9.0c Runtimes, which can be downloaded from the Microsoft website. Newer games like Most Wanted will install the runtimes by default, but not High Stakes, nor NFS3 (obviously).

Hello, guys. Sorry for this huge pause in the development. I've returned and I'm working on the project for 2 weeks already. Refactoring is still not finished, but it will be. I've done some other small things, also investigated the code a little bit.

I have a question for you. I've found the code (in the NFS3 and NFS4) which could cause a dead lock when server (host player) opens chat (presses Esc) during gameplay. Maybe I'm wrong, because this code is complicated and it is possible that I understood something not right. The question: do you remember if the game was freezed completely just after pressing Esc (opening pause menu)? If you remember such problem, how often it happens?

I'm just trying to understand if this problems occurs sometimes. The game can hang completely just after pressing Esc button by host of a multiplayer game. It is what I think while I'm investigating the code which sends message that the server opened pause menu. But maybe I misunderstood it. So I'd like to know if anyone had seen similar problem in the game during multiplayer games. This bug is not permanent, it can happen rarely (race condition and a possible deadlock in the result).

I played to most online games with Benyy. I asked him if he can remember a game freeze. We both don't have that in mind.
Btw: Nice to see you back Veg.
