I would like to now how to make this game work.

What writer are you using? We can’t help you without knowing that.

HL - DT - ST CD-RW GCE-81608

Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2 uses Safedisc 2.8 so you will need to use Diskdump and Fireburner.
More info can be found in This thread, and what an excellent thread it is :slight_smile:
And some more info Here

Hope that helps

and it was so easy to make a backup…

  1. Checked and it was Safedisk 2.80.x.x.x.x
  2. Clony XXL (last version) used to send settings to Clone CD
    3.3.4.1
  3. Reader LG8160b, change read speed to 4x (which took 20
    minutes)
  4. Wrote CCD image @8X with LG8160b
  5. Installed Game & rebooted.
  6. Inserted CD in Reader (Toshiba 1612) and the game starts
    and plays beautifully.
  7. THAT WAS EASY HEY!!

Well whatever, use whatever works. Philamber informed me that discdump hasn’t failed yet. I think I’ll use that method for all Safedisc.

The error that you are mentioning is due to the encryption of the exe file in NFSHP2.

If the disk is not burned properly (sector wise speaking) then this error pops out everytime the .exe in the install directory iterrogates the sectors for the correct combination before it decrypts and thus allow the game to be played.
