    Well i had a pirate version crashed once (i've downloaded it because i just couldn't wait the release even though i had it pre-ordered long before) and the original also crashed once. But ever since that crash, not a single one. Works like a charm.

    The problem seems to be related to FSAA because when i forced regular FSAA, the game ran like crap and eventually crashed to desktop. So if you have Catalyst 10.10e Hotfix, use MLAA mode. It's used later in the rendering output and doesn't interfer with the game. Effect is also super smooth image and superior performance without a single crash. Gotta love AMD and their MLAA :D
    Other than that i haven't changed anything else.

    Oh and don't use Catalyst 10.11 WHQL as they are rubbish and just make the game crash. Use Cat 10.10e Hotfix. Works the best.

    I haven't had a single problem with 10.11's crashing on me with this game. I am going to try 10.10e's because I want to try out MLAA. :)

    rubber banding is like lagging, when you think you are somewhere and then all of the sudden the game pulls you back to where it thinks you are.

    like in an FPS and you run around a corner, and then die and it shows that you never made it there.

    your computer is faster than the server, and the server compensates by rubber banding you backwards.

    Some things just piss me off

    http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/need-for-speed-hot-pursuit/user-reviews

    wow seriously read those user reviews, why do people always nag so much.

    80% of these reviews are like this: "I wanted NFS undercover/mostwanted game :cry::cry::cry::cry::cry:."
    or "it does not have manual shifting"
    or"its just like burnout"
    it just makes me sick.
    or "it does not have options to "pimp" or customize your car :cry:
    PLEASE GIVE ME A BREAK. some people just dont get what this game was meant to be. i am happy with this game and i am happy they have left that underground/most wanted stuff behind.

    oh yeah and some of them also want a story line. i always found that the lames part of those street racing series. i just want to race. and if i want a story line. ill just play an rpg or something. racing games should be about good racing action, not about the pimping or storyline. (IMO)
    tho they are right about the lack of graphical options/tweaking in this game. I HATE JAGGIES.

    First of all, this is OT but... MLAA sometimes makes stuff blurry, not just text, which is annoying (mostly in pre-2008 games though)

    So I can force AA and MLAA on NFS HP np, but my framerates suck... Even without AA of any sort, I get 37 min 62 max 49.8 avg

    With 8xMSAA Edge-detect (24x) and MLAA I get 28min 38max 34avg ... Lower AA doesn't change the fps much

    Is this normal? i7 920 D0 @ 4ghz and a 6870

    MLAA doesn't make things blurry, it just makes things smooth that you ppl were used to see all jaggy. Wide/narrow tent filters do make image blurry. I kno because i was using Quincunx in GeForce days which worked the same way and was using Transparency AA since Radeon 9600 Pro days. So having smooth image is something normal for me for ages and i don't see any blur in images.

    NFS Hot Pursuit Patch 1 released!!!

    Changelog:
    - Quad-core CPU’s crash
    - Dreamshots are corrupted in non-16:9 aspect ratios: If you configure your game with a different resolution that yields an aspect ratio that’s not 16:9, dreamshots and snapshots were corrupted. This has been fixed.

    W00T-acular Rejzor, I actually got the game to boot now! my last reply to EA was rather strongly worded, so i assume that's why they put a patch out :) you can all thank me! ;)

    it's a chair that has feedback effects, that add to immersion i guess. like tilting on turns, etc. never used one.
