**OFFICIAL** Need For Speed: Carbon Thread - Page 17

I used the wide screen hack that uses the UniRes patcher. Head over to the widescreen gaming forums for the guide.

Its cool, I finally managed to get the Z06 and its been smooth sailing ever since.

Some updats to my garage. Still plenty more old school muscle to unlock yet. Awesome Plymoth Road Runner in one of teh Challenge series that I badly want.

Main Racer:






Drift Car:






This is the car the GF made so she can race me via LAN (cant help bad taste I guess);






And I made this just to add a touch of class to the lineup:

Ok this may sound stupid but I've completed the Career mode (American Muscle of course ) and it says 100% I'm still working my way through the challenges and reward cards but I looked through the unlocks for each of those and it doesn't list a lot of the cars such as the 2007 Shelby GT500 nor have I already unlocked it?

P.S. I am running it at max settings and 6x AA 16x AF but my screenies still turn out like **** no where close to Droopz? Is it just FRAPS or maybe my settings?
Good enough

The only thing I can think of is our card differenaces. I spent a fair bit of time in the nVidia control panel tweaking settings.

I finished the game a couple of days ago. I'm glad I didn't spend the extra money on the "collectors edition".. it was barely worth paying for the regular one. Only took me a day to finish the game.

I gotta say, the online play is horrible. Everybody spams the crap out of the exotics, nobody bothers to drive anything that takes any skill. If collision detection is on, you have to constantly worry about the dingus beside you trying to run you off the road. The game also seems REALLY laggy, even on my fast cable connection which has no trouble with any of the other online games I play (Source games, BF2, etc).

So bottom line: Mehhh.
