I am using Ubuntu 8.10 with Gnome.

I am running Wine 1.1.9, and Wine 1.1.11 and Wine 1.0.1.

I am using 177 version Nvidia Drivers for my NX7300GS. It is 512MB Mem.

I have Pentium 4 Dual Core 2GHz and 2GB Ram at 667MHz.

I can install Need For Speed Undercover, I can install DirectX component with the aide of PlayOnLinux, but I can't get NFS to play.

It tells me to activate. Other programs can access the internet, but seems NFS can't?

Any ideas?

The online mode (and registration) do not work with wine actually so you have to find yourself (because we do NOT support piracy) what to do to bypass the issue.

I went and bought this game because your website said it worked with PlayOnLinux!!! Are you telling me that I wasted my money?

Hi schurtek,

No you didn't waste your money, we are just saying that for the moment, you must use something not very legal (NoCD patch or stuff like that, but we can't help you to do that) to play the game. (Or maybe you can register under Windows and then play under Linux) But later, wine will perhaps support the protection system of NFSU and you won't need to patch it anymore.
