Foreword:  This is simply a guide to show users how to get this game working and running online with the LAN play without hassle.  This is not meant to encourage or facilitate piracy. This is merely a guide to help gamers like yourself play this fantastic game online. ~ Versatile

The “Need for Speed” series is an excellent racing series, and the Underground series really takes it up a notch. This guide will show you how to play Need for Speed Underground 2 online using Tunngle.  However, the same methods will work with Hamachi so I will write the instructions for both below. I have written this because the guides existing on the Internet is sort of lousy, so I decided to make my own.

How to Play Online [Using Tunngle or Hamachi]

1) Update game to latest version. Go to www.filefront.com for the official patches. 2) Go to the need for speed folder and edit server.cfg with notepad. The contents will look like mine below:

# # The server sends a ping message to the client every PINGTIME seconds # and the client is expected to respond within PINGWAIT seconds or # the server considers the connection to be dead and the client is # logged out. # PINGTIME=20 PINGWAIT=30 # # A client can only be idle for TIMEIDLE minutes before it is # automatically logged out. Even if a client is not idle it can # only be connected for a maximum of TIMEMAXM minutes. # Either/Both values can be set to 0 to mean that the server will # not timeout the client. # TIMEIDLE=0 TIMEMAXM=0 # # Limits how many times per second the LAN server will service requests. # Lowering this number will increase game performance for slower computers # at the expense of sluggish response time from the server. Valid range is # 1-1000. # LAN_THROTTLE=30 ##———————————————————————— ## DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING BELOW HERE ##———————————————————————— ACCOUNT=1 MASTER=1 SLAVE=1 REDIR=1 # # This line allows the server to determine on what interface to listen for # connections. It can be any publicly routable IP address (this is the case # even if the host is on a LAN that is isolated from the Internet). There is # no communication attempted with the IP address listed here. # ADDR=%%bind(“159.153.253.82″)

3) Now put a # sign in front of the last line so it looks like this:

#ADDR=%%bind(“159.153.253.82″)

4) Save the file and start the game! Host the game in hamachi or tunngle, and your friends will see it!

  15. @Mirko_KO: There is a software called NFS:U Lan (http://www.nfscars.net/file/view/underground/5186.aspx) you can use it to play NFS Underground, you click on Online in the game menu but it will connect to your own server.

    Have fun.

  16. Hello, there is a problem
    first, i’ve patched the game, its version 1.2 right now
    then i have cracked the game
    i have overwritten the server.cfg which looks like this: http://www.ulozisko.sk/obrazky/313662/dpccccccccccccc.jpg right now (i downloaded it from a site because i didn’t want to do something wrong xD).

    i did the same stuff as written here above with his PC too.
    we are using hamachi
    i have win7 ultimate edition 64bit , he has win xp professional..
    i even tried to run the game as administrator, to switch off firewall.. nothing happens, i can’t find him and he can’t find me in the game. i didn’t find out what is wrong, so i am asking if you can help me
    Thanks for reading.

  17. I did exactly how the guide says, but it is pointless, because i cant see what my friend hosts, or he cant see what i am hosting… we both have windows xp professional :| Could somebody help?:(

    I tried with hamachi,with pLan,with hamachi and pLan,with the last line of server.cfg,without this…Please,help.

    • I don’t get it. I’ve had it working fine with hamachi, and now tunngle. All I did was edit the server.cfg file. Are we sure your ports are open? Maybe firewall or antivirus messing with your network.

    but when i save it…it says access denied.. :(

      i have noticed tht when i run as administrator i can’t see any server…but when i simply run..it shows server and when i go into lobby it says
      “You have lost your connection to EA server.Please make sure your network adaptor and network cable are plugged in.”
      so wht should i do.. ???

  21. All was OK in tunngle but suddenly I can’t create or join. EA cable lost connection etc. Not even in real LAN.
