Windows 7: Need for Speed™ Most Wanted Running in Windows 7 32bit

Need for Speed™ Most Wanted Running in Windows 7 32bit

Need for Speed™ Most Wanted

Become the Most Notorious

Wake up to the smell of burnt asphalt as the thrill of illicit street racing permeates the air. From the makers of the hit Need for Speed™ Underground series, Need for Speed™ Most Wanted challenges players to become the most notorious and elusive street racer...

Oh yeah, for me this is the best Need for Speed™ series I've ever played and I believe a lot of people are wanting this to run in Windows 7 too. And yes it does with minor patches. THAT'S Right!!! GOOD NEWS Huh!!!

Here is how it worked:
1. Install the game.
2. Download this Version 1.3 patch here (size 12.1MB)
3. Copy and Replace your speed.exe with this one (size 5.75MB)
4. Run the game and enjoy!!! - That's right, no need to check or change compatibility settings...

It worked on Windows 7 Ultimate and I'm sure it would work on Professional and Home Premium. I haven't tried this with 64bit versions though but feel free to post and let me know if it did.

Hope this helps.

By the way, this worked on Black Edition too and either US or Europe editions.

Download the whole package (patch v1.3 and speed.exe) as .zip here (17.9MB)

64-Bit Windows 7 - Home Premium Edition; Linux Mint 11

Last time I checked, I encountered no problems with Most Wanted when I was still running x86. I'm currently using x64 Ultimate. I'm thinking of sticking to my PS2 for games like this for now.
