Various Cheats and Hints
To purchase cars at a cheap price ($10 each), open up the cars.ini file in your CARS folder (from the main NFSHP2 game folder) using Notepad. Change the following lines:
NOTE: Always make a backup before overwriting game files.
Lead a single race, full grid, advanced, for eight laps to unlock the NFS edition of the Ferrari F50.
Lamborgini Diablo 6.0 VT:
Get 2.5 million points to unlock the NFS edition of the Lamborghini Diablo.
Get 4 million points to unlock the NFS edition of the McLaren F1.
McLaren F1 LM:
Get 5 million points or win the World Championship to unlock the NFS edition of the McLaren F1 LM.
Mercedes CLK GTR:
Get 4.5 million points to unlock the NFS edition of the Mercedes CLK GTR.
Porsche Carrera GT:
Get 3.5 million points to unlock the NFS edition of the Porsche Carrera GT.
Dodge Viper GTS:
Get 2 million points to unlock the NFS edition of the Dodge Viper GTS.
Get 3 million points to unlock the NFS edition of the Lamborghini Murcielago.
Make a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "cars.ini" file in the "cars" sub-folder in the game directory. Change the "mass=" value to "100" for a faster car.
Open the folder of a powerful car, such as the F1, F50, etc. Copy the "car.ini" file from here and paste it over the original "car.ini" file of a slower car in its own folder (for example, the Elise). This instantly gives that car the speed and handling characteristics of the better vehicle. Note: Back up the original "car.ini" file of the slower car in the event that you want to revert it back to its standard settings.
Start the game using any of the following command-line parameters to activate the corresponding cheat. You can do this by modifying the shortcut (icon) to your game.
Example: "C:\Program Files\Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2\NfsHS.exe" (parameter)
