       Need for Speed is one of the few game series that has fascinated me for as 
    long as I can remember, so naturally any new NFS game that Electronic Arts 
    releases deserves special attention from me.  No other racing game has ever 
    been able to give me that sense of speed and excitement I always experience 
    while playing a NFS title, and Underground is far from an exception.
    
       However, this game is much unlike the other NFS titles.  As EA said 
    themselves, this is a completely different game from Hot Pursuit or High 
    Stakes, so don’t expect bright, sunny closed tracks with exotic supercars...  
    This is dark city street racing...  This is Underground.

       Seeing as Need for Speed: Underground 2 is soon coming out, I have decided 
    to update (finally) this FAQ once again now that I have something remotely 
    similar to the otherwise known as 'free time'...  Thanks to all of you who 
    have emailed me to let me know of my mistakes from the first version, and I 
    hope what I have added will be of use to you.

      The controls for Need for Speed: Underground are the same for almost every 
    racing game there is for PS2.  The main difference from other games is the 
    [SELECT] button which places your car in the middle of the road facing the 
    way you are supposed to go, which is especially helpful after messing up.  In 
    this guide, [] means [SQUARE], /\ means [TRIANGLE], and ( ) means [CIRCLE] 
    (obviously}.  +L, +R, +U and +D mean D-Pad Left, Right, Up and Down in that 
    order.

       All these modes use the same buttons, as they are all normal races.  
    Remember to set your car to Manual Transmission in the car options menu if 
    you plan on shifting yourself.

       Drag racing has a slightly different control scheme because you don’t 
    actually steer your car in this mode, instead you have to concentrate on 
    shifting at the right time.  Your car will always be Manual Transmission, so 
    you DO have to shift whether you like it or not.  For more information look 
    at the Drag Racing (1.26) section below.

                  \___________________________________Race Modes___\
    
       There are five main race modes in Underground, however, there are some 
    other modes that need to be discussed.  The following will have descriptions 
    on each race mode as well as strategies that people have sent in on how to 
    master that particular mode.  In most modes you will be racing against three 
    other competitors, all with similar performing vehicles as yours, and in some 
    races you also have to watch out for traffic.
                     _________________________________________
                     \__1.21__\__Circuit_____________________/ 
                      
       Circuit races are the ones with the same start and finish line, ie, you 
    race around a route and try to be the first person back to where everyone 
    started.  Most circuit races involve two laps around the track, although 
    there are some really long six or seven lap races you will encounter towards 
    the end of the game.  You will usually want to save your Nitrous Oxide for 
    the last lap in the final stretch to the finish line, or you could use it to 
    get a head start at the beginning of the race and concentrate on staying 
    ahead the whole time.
                     _________________________________________
                     \__1.22__\__Dash________________________/ 
                      
       Dash races are similar to the Circuit races, however the object is to get 
    from one part of the city to the other, and the starting line and finish line 
    are in different places in the city.  Obviously there won’t be more then one 
    lap (or a lap at all for that matter), so make sure you use your Nitrous 
    Oxide at some point during the first “lap”.
                     _________________________________________
                     \__1.23__\__Lap Knock-out_______________/ 
                      
       Lap Knock-outs are basically Circuit races, however at the end of each lap 
    the driver who is in last place gets eliminated.  In Underground mode Lap 
    Knock-outs are always three laps, so three drivers will be eliminated.  The 
    last lap is usually the most challenging, as it will be the best two drivers 
    out of the original four racing one-on-one against each other.  Since the 
    last lap is usually the hardest, it’s recommended that you save your Nitrous 
    Oxide until the end of the race.  If you are having trouble with the last 
    racer on the last lap, try knocking him out early in the race by slamming him 
    into a wall or traffic.  That should leave you with an easier opponent on the 
    last lap.
                     _________________________________________
                     \__1.24__\__Time Trials_________________/ 
                      
       Time Trials test your racing skills without the pressure of other racers 
    being on your tail, all you have to watch out for is other traffic.  You are 
    given a preset time in which you have to Dash to a spot in a city, and the 
    only way to beat this kind of a race is by beating the time they give you.  
    Your remaining time in a Time Trial race is represented on the top-left 
    section of the screen during a race.  Usually, choosing easy will give you an 
    extra ten seconds on the time, and choosing hard will take away some ten 
    seconds from your allowed time.
                     _________________________________________
                     \__1.25__\__Drift_______________________/ 
                      
       Drift mode comes easily to some people, but for others it is a visual 
    representation of hell itself.  Drifting is a new competition that has been 
    adopted from Japan where the goal is to earn points by making your car slide 
    across the track with style.

       - Deymus, GameFaqs Boards says:
       “Try to drift/slide in the bonus zone (area marked with white lines near 
    the wall) as much as possible. It allows your points to increase at an 
    extremely fast rate, especially if you've obtained enough points to have 
    x5/maxxxed. Also, if your car is starting to go forward toward the wall, but 
    your car is near the middle, use your hand-brake to turn your car and just 
    hold the gas down. 9 times out of 10 you'll not only correct yourself 
    (prevent yourself from hitting the wall), but you'll get a decent slide in 
    the bonus zone. Of course this is also dependant on how fast you're going. 
    Drifting cannot really be taught, though. Some people drift differently than 
    others.” 
    
       - Sakeido, GameFaqs Boards says:
       “FWD cars are a lot more balanced... e-brake drifts are easier to control 
    but the cars have more difficulty keeping the speed up enough to chain 
    together drifts through straight-aways. The AWD cars (Skyline, Impreza, 
    Eclipse) are the best balance since the tail doesn't wildly wag around, but 
    the Miata is very well balanced as well. The Supra is a beast of a car for 
    drifting, it goes out of control very easy, and the RX-7 is also a good car 
    but once you get to 90 degrees you are done for, it will spin. The 240 is a 
    amazing drift car (just like real life)”

                     \__1.26__\__Drag Races__________________/ 
                      
       Drag Races are the ultimate test for your ride.  These are all about 
    shifting through your gears at the right time and hitting the NOS to smoke 
    your opponents.  For those of you few who don’t know what a Drag race is, it 
    involves racing your car from one point to another (usually a quarter mile or 
    a mile, in Underground it is a whole mile) down a relatively straight stretch 
    to test a vehicle’s acceleration and speed against another.  With higher 
    performance cars (as the ones in NFSU), these races usually take less than 30 
    seconds and can reach speeds of over 300KM/H.
    
       Mastering this mode can be tough, especially when traffic starts to get in 
    your way and the tracks force you to change lanes.  The key to drag racing is 
    shifting at the best time.  The whole race is usually defined at the starting 
    line.  At the start of the race, rev your engine until the point where the 
    needle turns green (there will also be a blue or green dot in the middle of 
    your screen).  You want to try and keep it there until the race starts.  This 
    can be really hard at first, but there are lots of ways to do it.  You can 
    either push the R3 stick up slightly, or use the X button (remember that it 
    is pressure sensitive).  Either way, as soon as you start moving (your car 
    will shift into first automatically) make sure you floor the gas and get 
    ready to shift into second gear.
    
       When shifting, you want to try to get perfect shifts, which happen when 
    you shift while your tach needle is green.  If you shift too early, you will 
    get a “Short Shift” and it will take you longer to climb through that gear.  
    Shifting in blue will give you a “Good Shift”, which is a little slower than 
    green, and if it is red it means you over revved, and it will take a lot 
    longer to make it through the next gear.  If you don’t shift, your going to 
    end up overheating your engine (you will see the heat meter go up and just 
    before it blows you will feel the controller pulse) and loose the race.
    
       This mode is all about practice and mastering your car’s shifting pattern.  
    Try turning up the volume on your TV and let the sound of your engine guide 
    you through the gears.
    
       - Deymus, GameFaqs Boards says:
       “Get a perfect shift off the line when you start a drag race (tends to be 
    around 6-7) and use nitrous to increase your shifting speed.  Right after you 
    shift gears, hit the nitrous button in steady bursts (don't burn it in a long 
    shot) and make sure you get a perfect shift, then repeat until you hit last 
    gear. If you're at the point where you have all level 2 performance mods, 
    then you'd want to burn all your nitrous right after you shift into the last 
    gear. But if you happen to have all level 3 performance mods, then you want 
    to save it until near the end of the drag race as it's possible to blow your 
    engine if you burn all your nitrous early on. Of course letting off the gas 
    for a second will prevent that.”

       Tournaments are where you earn the big money and respect in Underground.  
    They are usually three or four races long, and can involve any race mode.  
    Points are awarded at the end of each race reflecting your position:
        ______________________
       /  Position  | Points  \ 
       |----------------------|
       |    First       8     |
       |   Second       6     |
       |    Third       4     |
       |   Fourth       2     |
       \______________________/
    
       At the end of each race you have the option to restart the race or the 
    whole tournament, so don’t worry if you find yourself on the last race and 
    loose, you can just restart that run and keep your points from the previous 
    races.
                     _________________________________________
                     \__1.28__\__Split-Screen________________/ 
                      
       Split-screen is the normal two player head to head battle, and there won’t 
    be any other competition.  It is possible to use cars from two separate 
    Underground profiles by having the second player press [] and load their 
    profile.  This is a great way to show off your ride at your friends house and 
    have everyone wishing they owned it in real life...
    
       You can set most options for the race, like the track, whether you want 
    traffic, how many laps (between one and ten), etc.  You aren’t going to 
    receive any style points for doing a split screen race though!
                     _________________________________________
                     \__1.29__\__Free Run____________________/ 
                      
       Free run is just for practice.  No other cars (except for traffic if you 
    want to enable it) to get in your way, just flying around a track without any 
    pressure.  If you start to feel frustrated because of a race in Underground 
    mode, it really helps to do a couple of laps in free run (that’s if you have 
    the track unlocked) to de-stress yourself and master the track.  You don’t 
    have to set the amount of laps you want to do in this mode, just do as many 
    as you want, and when your tired of the same thing, just hit [START] and 
    exit.

                  \_________________________________Style Points___\
    
       Style Points are what give you access to most of the visual upgrades in 
    the game.  You earn style points for what you do while racing.  Things like 
    taking shortcuts, drafting behind another racer to gain a speed boost, or 
    being able to do a whole lap without hitting anything will all count towards 
    your total style points at the end of the race.  Below it will say how many 
    points you get for what you do.  The table below describes what you get 
    points for and how many.  If it says +Var or –Var, it means you will earn or 
    loose variable amounts of points depending on how good or bad you did 
    whatever it was you did...  I think I confused myself... O.o

                  \________________________Reputation Multiplier___\
    
       Your Reputation Multiplier is what will help you get lots Style Points 
    quickly.  At the end of a race, your total Style Points earned for that race 
    will be multiplied by either 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X or 5X depending on your Rep 
    Multiplier.  Your Reputation depends on your car.  The more visual upgrades 
    you put on your cars and the more exotic and unique your car looks, the 
    higher your reputation.  Basically the higher the level of the upgrade you 
    are installing the more Rep points you are going to get.
    
                                                                      ___________

     /__Cars________________________________________________________________/
    
       Here is the list of the cars that are available in the game.  It shows 
    whether the car is FWD (Front Wheel Drive), RWD (Rear Wheel Drive), or AWD 
    (All Wheel Drive, which is like 4x4), as well as how many gears it has.  As a 
    general rule, FWD cars handle turns well but are hard to slide, while RWD 
    cars are easy to spin out with and fishtail easily.  AWD vehicles are usually 
    a good balance between the two.  The stats representing Acceleration (Acl), 
    Top Speed (TSp) and Handling (Hdl) show the car’s abilities _without_ any 
    performance upgrades.  Stats with the | | around them represent highest stat.

       After you beat the initiation challenge, you get $10000 to spend on a new 
    ride.  You have five to choose from at the beginning, of which are listed 
    below in the chart.  I would personally recommend the Mazda Miata MX-5 as 
    your first car, simply because it has the best handling of all five.  If you 
    really need to be the fastest (its not all that much faster though) you can 
    choose to take the Dodge Neon for a spin.

       For now that is all I have had a chance to cover for the walkthrough, but 
    I assure you that in the near future I will finish writing the rest of this 
    section.
    
    
                                                                      ___________

       There is tons of stuff to unlock in NFSU, giving you lots of ways to rice 
    out your car or make it just as fast as it looks.  Unlocking customizations 
    for your car is one of the main features that attracts players to the game.

       These are pretty much self explanatory, they are the unlocks you get for 
    beating certain races in Underground.  You might unlock some of these in a 
    slightly different order since you sometimes have the option of choosing what 
    races to do.  Magazine Covers aren’t included in here because even though you 
    usually unlock a certain cover in a certain race, it can vary.  For the 
    covers refer to the next section.

       The magazine covers are only for fun in this game as you don’t really get 
    anything from winning them, however they do let you show off what your cars 
    used to look like before you got around to modding that new Skyline your 
    racing.  Below is a list of the covers you can get.  Note the last one... 
    anyone beat ‘Racer-X’ yet?

          *Access this hidden cover by first selecting a cover from the top
             right column, then scrolling all the way down (hold +D) until
             you reach the bottom.  It will highlight a blank space, but if
             you look at the description it will say ‘Beat Racer-X’.
    
       I am missing a couple of the magazine cover names, so if you could, please 
    send those in!  (Especially the online ones).

       Here are all the cheats that I know of, so if you find any others please 
    send them in.  I personally don’t like to cheat (it takes the fun out of the 
    game) unless I am completely done the game and am looking to extend its 
    replay value.  I’m not responsible for you using these cheats, so don’t try 
    to blame me because you screwed yourself over, I already warned you!
    
       Also, please don’t cheat online.  Not only does it prove that you are a 
    looser, it also ruins the game for the rest of us.

                  \______________________________Tips and Tricks___\
    
       Here are just a couple of tips that you should always keep in mind while 
    racing:
                 
       + Keep your cool.  Getting pissed off at your game and throwing your 
    controller against the wall isn’t going to make your car go any faster, 
    instead its just going to cost you a new controller.  If you start to get 
    worked up because you can’t win go out side and chill out for a bit.  You 
    will find that when you come back you are going to do much better then you 
    were doing before.
    
       + When you crash, don’t go straight to hitting [RESET] to get your car 
    back on the track because you restart at a standstill, making you loose a lot 
    of speed.  If you can, see if you can recover from the crash (you can still 
    control your car while in the slow-motion sequence) before resetting and you 
    will probably get back on track faster then if you had reset.
    
       + Don’t be afraid to change cars for different race modes, for example, if 
    you are using the Mazda Miata MX-5 for Circuit and Dash races, you might want 
    to trade it in for something like the Mazda RX-7 when you are going to Drag 
    as it is a faster car, then trade it back for the better handling Miata MX-5 
    when you are done.
    
       + If you are using manual transmission and you reset your car or just come 
    to a complete stop for any reason, you will get a faster start if you slam it 
    into neutral (L2), revv up the engine (X), and then when its redlined (or if 
    you are good enough when its in perfect shift) put it into first gear (R2).  
    The whole process should take less than a second to do.
    
       + The earlier races on underground mode are not as hard.  Try the HARD 
    setting for a few of these races, you still win and you get more money.  
    From: No Name [TimothyVMurphy(at)aol.com]
    
       + Turn of the Jump Cam (the camera angle you get when you catch air) by 
    going to OPTIONS, CAMERA and moving the Jump Cam slider all the way to the 
    left.  It will help you focus during a race and you won’t get distracted 
    every time the angle changes.
    
       + Just a tip is all: If you're screaming down the road and a collision 
    with another car is unavoidable, hit the NOS. The high speeds will often 
    allow you to palm off the obstacle or even lever it over your ride, thereby 
    avoiding a crash. A word of warning, this only works if you have one of the 
    bigger cars, like the RX-7 or Toyota Supra; with hatchbacks this is suicide. 
    From: SpyderBite [liamcollins(at)coolgoose.com]
    
       + Easy $6000: First, get a Skyline and put all the performance parts to 
    stock. Don’t have to for the visuals. Once you have a stock Skyline, trade it 
    for a VW Golf. Put all the performance parts back to level 3 and trade the 
    Golf for a Skyline. You should make a profit of 6G’s!
    From: Toki [atticus(at)bigpond.com.au] Note: Could someone please confirm 
    this for me? ~CodyLoco
    
       + Always install your drivetrain last (as it says in the description of 
    the upgrade).  This way you will end up with a faster acceleration and a 
    higher top speed.

              \___6.40   \_________________________________________
                  \___________________Frequently Asked Questions___\
    
       Q How can I color the vinyls on my car?
       A Just go to the screen where you select which layer of vinyl you want to 
    change, then choose one of those layers and press [].  Keep in mind that 
    unique vinyls can’t be re-colored.
    
       Q What the (BLEEP!) is []?!
       A Come on guys, use your imagination... it’s square!  Besides, its 
    explained at the top.
    
       Q How do I access the tutorial videos for Drift and Drag modes?
       A On the main menu (not the Underground menu) choose Quick Race, then 
    highlight either Drift or Drag mode and hit L2.
    
       Q Is there a replay mode?
       A Nope :(
    
       Q Is there any way to get all the unique upgrades or visuals in one 
    profile?  Like for example, I want to get both the Vapor and the Mantis wide 
    body kits.
       A No you can’t.  You might be able to with cheats but I don’t think so (I 
    don’t have a GameShark).
    
       Q How do I get the Racer-X Magazine?
       A Like I said above in the magazines section, I don’t know...  If you know 
    the answer tell me.
    
       Q Why isn’t there even a rear-view mirror?!
       A There is!  But its only available for bumper-cam view.  To activate it, 
    go to car options in the options menu, and set the view to ‘bumper-cam’.  
    Then go to visual options and you will see the option for a rear view mirror.
    
       Q What is a ricer/riced car?
       A If you hear someone say ‘That car is really riced up!’, or ‘That car is 
    just a ricer’, it usually means a car that has been tricked out visually, but 
    it lacks the power and speed to make up for it.  In other words, a ricer car 
    is an all-show-and-no-go kind of car.
       A lot of people have emailed me regarding this topic, and it seems each 
    person has their own dictionary entry on what a ricer/riced car means, so it 
    is really up to you.
    
       Q What happened to car damage?
       A Most car manufacturers don’t like to allow games to show damage on their 
    cars, however cars still get slightly damaged...  The front windshield will 
    crack and the side mirrors will sometimes get ripped off.
    
       Q Does choosing different manufacturers on performance upgrades change 
    their performance?
       A No, it’s just for fun ;)
    
       Q When do I get to paint my bumpers? It shows a pic of it on one of the 
    loading screens, but I've never figured out how to do it.
       A You don’t paint the actual bumpers, there is a body vinyl that covers 
    the bumpers.  From: Jerry Reed [jir896(at)comcast.net]
    
       Q After a drag race, I looked at the statistics and saw that someone had 
    5/7 perfect shifts...  How is that possible if the most any car in the game 
    has is 6 gears?
       A If you shift down and then up again it counts towards your shifts, try 
    it, you can make your stats say 50/100 shifts if you wanted to (but why?).
    
       Q Can this be played over a 56k connection?
       A No, this is a broadband only game.  There are ways to get around the 
    restriction, but even if you do, it will VERY RARELY connect and you will lag 
    yourself and everyone else if you do manage to make it into a race (and 
    usually ends up disconnecting everyone as well).  If you want to play this 
    game online, ya gotta get broadband.
    
       Q I keep getting this DNAS –402 error when trying to connect, what’s going 
    on?
       A Chances are you are using a copy of the game.  Most PS2 games can only 
    be played online with the original disks.  Another problem could be that you 
    have used cheats and then saved the game, as the DNAS is also a cheat 
    blocking system.  If you did save the game with cheats on, you will probably 
    have to start a new profile to play online.
    
       "I had this error and it is caused by a corrupt data in your online 
    registry.  To fix it all anyone needs to do is rerun the disc that came with 
    their network adaptor." From: Jared Clark [racer0069(at)hotmail.com]
    
       Q Can anyone playing an online game cheat?  I played a few games, and SOME 
    of them seemed TOO good to be legit.  Can anyone put in a cheat code and 
    cheat in an online game?  I guess that's my only question...if you could 
    explain how the cheating online thing works.  Or if there's a way to race 
    people who don't cheat.  From: Micah [below_underground(at)hotmail.com]
       A Even though I don't have access to online mode, I know the answer to 
    this question.  Yeah people cheat online, but only with the PC version of the 
    game.  There have been a couple of trainers and patches that give people 
    really fast acceleration or top speed or unlimited NOS, and obviously they 
    use them online.  As for the PS2 version, I haven't heard of anyone cheating 
    with it yet, but it may be possible with a GameShark or something like that.  
         However, keep in mind there are some people who are REALLY good racers, 
    so be careful when you accuse someone about it.  I heard EA was going to soon 
    patch the PC version of NFSU to get rid of those cheaters, and currently bans 
    any PS2 racers who decide to hack their memory.
