Finally found a fix for NFS Porsche Unleashed and WinXP
I know, I know.... NFS Porsche is an older game but I still love playing it!!!
I've been searching for patches, updates or anything at all that would let me play this game with WinXP Home or WinXP Pro and was getting really frustrated because the game freezes here and there constantly.
Not any more!!!! I was asking about a software that would help me to copy my personal games onto a another cd for safe keeping. It's a long story and not worth getting into.
Anyhow, someone suggested that I use CloneCD. I tried it out and it cured ALL PROBLEMS with NFS Porsche and any version of Windows. The game now runs flawlessly.
So for any of you who have given up on this game, try this fix and you'll be so happy.
Wow, the original doesn't work, but the copy does? I had no idea the original wouldn't work. I only came across my original copy the other day. I might have to pop it in to see. I find this strange because I had no problems installing nfs porsche. Although, I was using a patched copy not my original. Ok, I have to check now, I'm curious about this.
Mine is not a one for one copy, my backup is a patched copy. It seems odd that if it was an exact copy that there would be some difference. Did you patch it at all? Or is it exactly the same. WEll, anyway, I have to see this one myself.
Ok, I seem to have encountered your problem now. I installed it fine on my laptop, my desktop, and on a computer I just built for my dad, but on another I just finished building for my mom it wouldn't work, not the original, and not the patched cd either. Well, I guess i need to try your approach to this. I haven't used Clone CD but I guess I'll have to give it a try. What do ya do? You still need to copy it in "raw" mode or something like that? I tried even making a new cracked cd thinkinking that the one I had was scratched or something. What did it do for you, did it go to the point where it said "loading" and just freeze? It did this on an install with the orginal, and with both cracked cds I burned. I can't believe simply burning another copy with Clone CD would fix it, but since it did for you, I guess it might for me. Stranger things have happened!!!
