Hi guys

I was also experienced some prbs with game launching on Win7 + AMD proc (compatibility mode failed, admin mode failed) , but I have tried an old app which you can find here:

|MG| Win2000 Launcher 1.5.2 Download

Just:
1. Launch this app
2. Enter the name of entry that will be visible on the list
3. Choose shift.exe file
4. On "Multiple processors users" tab, check JUST "Processor 1" and nothing more, nothing less.
5. Save your config, choose your newly created entry on the list
6. Click on LAUNCH and enjoy

Hope this will help someone.

Hmm. I have wanted to buy it for a long while now, but OP has the same EXACT gfx card as me, so will I have an issue too?

Make sure you guys have the latest patch installed (1.02 I believe). Its the one that includes some DLC muscle cars and a Supra.

Shift runs great here(1440x900 maxed 4x AA/AF average 100 or so fps give or take). I don't personally have to run any compatibility modes or anything special. I recall there were some issues with ATI cards. One thing you can try is rename the shift.exe to grid.exe or fear.exe. Sounds dumb I know but it loads a different better optimized profile in CCC. My previous GFX card was ATI and this helped me when I was on XP. Also the usual make sure all your drivers are up-to-date. There were some other tricks that I recall reading but they were specific to windows xp. I'd have a look at the official forum for any more tips. I figured ATI would have had their drivers good to go for this game by now.

Oh gawd, you had me at muscle cars. I personally drive a 1979 Tbird. I have yet to play the NFS to have one though :/

Shift-E, Shift-L not working sticky keys off
My old keyboard was refusing to re-initialize after the peripheral reset during win 7 boot. It's about a decade old, so I just assumed it was dead. I replaced it with my wireless keyboard I use for working on computers, Ms laser 8000. My keyboard now initializes fine, but shift L and Shift E are...

NFS Shift or Shift 2 or something else?
I am looking for racing game, more of a SIM for PC. Graphics need to be good. Confused between Shift 1 and 2. Or is there some other which I should look into other than these 2? BTW, will not be using Wheel but gamepad or less likely keyboard.

Shift 2
My advice....Don't bother! Managed to get it a day early , what a let down. To me the graphics seem even inferior to the original Shift. Car handling not impressive. No wow factor what so ever.
