Need For Speed Underground 2 For Mac!

The first need for speed underground was a break from the norm, which was necessary to keep the series fresh with new ideas in gameplay. This was a good thing as the series was getting very repetitive with only a few changes being made over eight years from 1994 to 2002 overall I gave Need for Speed Underground 2 Mac rate 9 out of 10. And I said, the game had a really good car list and I liked the customization.

Boy advance the high scores from critics and the fact that it was different from the rest of the need for speed series meant that it also sold well as EA managed to shift 2.6 million copies on the PlayStation two alone, EA knew that this was the direction that the series had to go in to keep it. And so they told EA black box to come up with a sequel, which was released one year later in 2004 on the PlayStation two original X-Box Nintendo game cube windows, and the game boy advance. And then in 2005 on the Nintendo DS mobile and PlayStation portable the PSP version of the game for some reason, had a different name as it was called need for speed underground rivals.

Customization in Underground 2 was significantly expanded compared to previous iterations from the series. Visual customization has expanded with the ability to customize the car's front and rear bumpers, side skirts, spoiler, hood, exhaust tips, doors, roof scoop, wheels (including the ability to put on spinners), headlights and taillights, side mirrors and paint. Vinyls and decals can also be added, as well as car stereos (speakers, amplifiers & subwoofers), hydraulics, nitrous bottles, and under glow neon. Most visual modifications to the car have no actual effect on vehicle performance. The sound systems, for example, could be put in the trunk of cars but served no purpose other than visual cues. Hydraulics can be used in combination with nitrous at a start of a race which can cause a car to do a wheelie and for some cars get a better launch. The performance and handling of the car are affected by cosmetic modifications, like spoilers and hoods, which affect the downforce of the car - better spoilers allow better tuning of the downforce management both in front and in the back of the vehicle. Visual upgrades increase a car's visual rating, up to a rating of 10.0. At least one car in a career garage needs to be visually upgraded to a 10.0 rating to unlock all 10 DVD events (completing these rewards the player with a DVD cover), and each stage has a required number of DVD events.

GameSpot gave the mobile phone version a score of 9.2 out of 10 and said that it "isn't just the best racing game ever made for a mobile phone; it's also a much-needed showcase for V Cast technology. This game boasts game length and replay value so many orders beyond the mobile norm that it calls for a total paradigm shift. Simply put, mobile gaming just got a much-needed kick up the evolutionary ladder."[65] IGN gave the same version a score of eight out of ten and called it "a big step for mobile gaming, in my opinion. While there are things I did not like about the game -- loading and some control issues -- I cannot deny that this is one hell of a package. If you want a game that maxes out your 3D handset, Need for Speed Underground 2 is the game to get."[66]

According to Electronic Arts, Need for Speed: Underground 2 sold above 8.4 million units worldwide by the end of 2004.[69] The PlayStation 2 version of Underground 2 received a "Double Platinum" sales award from the Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association (ELSPA),[70] indicating sales of at least 600,000 copies in the United Kingdom.[71] The game ultimately sold around 11 million copies[72] and entered the "best-sellers" of each console, PS2's Greatest Hits,[citation needed] Xbox's Platinum Hits,[citation needed] and GameCube's Player's Choice.[citation needed]

Powersliding This somewhat advanced technique is what separates the boys from the men in the Need for Speed series. Powersliding is accomplished by braking while entering a turn, and then accelerating once you are exiting the turn. Some turns require more braking than others though. A sharp turn will require that you brake hard when entering the turn, while a mild turn needs the exact opposite. This is an essential tactic to learn in the game, especially when competing in Outrun races. While you can get away with not using it during your Career Mode, to get the fastest times you'll need to do it.

Drafting Slip into the backside of an opponent's car to lessen the wind resistance on your car, therefore allowing you to gain more speed. The longer you stay in the slipstream, the higher the bonus you can achieve.

Why would anyone want to play the 2015 Need for Speed game? ... yeah, customization is ok, but the gameplay is like a poor copy of asphalt 8 from gameloft ... handling wasn't perfect in the old need for speed games ... but it was miles ahead of this current garbage

Since the underground tunnels are often in a severe environment, which makes the quality of communication fluctuate all the time, the current monitoring system of mine locomotive is still using the national railway signal concentrated blocking system [3]. However, the locomotives are traveling continuously in tunnels, which means if we want to use the collected data to achieve a better monitoring, we can only use the wireless communication between locomotives and access points (APs) equipped along the tunnels. Moreover, the data packets transferred may have image or video information encapsulated in them, which makes the data volume extremely large. Therefore, designing specific and efficient communication schemes for underground mine locomotives is greatly needed.

In underground tunnels with a severe environment, it is more difficult for locomotives communicating with APs. The requirements of achieving a better communication quality and transmitting data fast present challenges to researchers. It is obvious that the network capacity will be improved if we use some powerful wireless communicating techniques, such as OFDM [9,10], CDMA [11,12], and so on. These techniques all share one common property, that is, they try to divide the intact channel into several orthogonal sub channels through which transmissions can be conducted simultaneously. Therefore, the total throughput of the channel can be improved, which has been proved by previous research [13,14,15]. Nevertheless, if several transmissions need to be done in the same sub channel at once, none of them may succeed due to the network congestion. Hence, corresponding solutions to this problem, known as interference avoidance techniques, came into reality. Moreover, in recent years, certain interference cancellation techniques are also well studied. Compared with interference avoidance techniques, interference cancellation techniques allow several transmitters transmit data through the same sub channel at the same time by canceling out the interference rather than scheduling them to complete their tasks according to certain measures. Among all interference cancellation techniques, the successive interference cancellation(SIC) [16,17] is widely used since it is easy to implement while being able to achieve good performance. For example,

Based on the SIC technique, the locomotives can divide τi into several time slots, and the locomotives which can transmit together will be arranged into one time slot. Based on theorem 3, during one segment, the arranged time slots do not need to be changed. The only thing we need to change is the sending power of each locomotive. In the start of τi, new locomotives will enter or old locomotives will leave the radius of the AP. Thus, we only need to arrange time slots in the beginning of each segment.

The optimal result is decided by SINR. The channel gain and the power play important roles in SINR. Different speed will make the locomotive si in different position in time t, and then make the channel gain gi(t) different. Since in theorem 3 we have proved that we can always find suitable power during the whole scheduling time. Then we can also find suitable power so that no matter the channel gain changes, the SINR is the same, which will prove theorem 4.

This algorithm can be implemented on the AP. Each time when some locomotive is entering or leaving the range of the AP, it will try to communicate with it and then the AP will perform the calculation. After that, the AP will tell all locomotives how the transmitting power scheme they will use during the whole scheduling period. If there is no new locomotive entering or leaving, there is no need to do new calculation. The following will discuss these steps in detail.

Please note that these upgrade instructions are ONLY for upgrades to installations of version 2.3.13 or higher. If you are currently running a version prior to 2.3.13, you will need to update your installation to 2.3.13 first.
