2. PATCH 242 CHANGES


MULTIPLAYER ENCRYPTION
===========================
All multiplayer races are now encrypted to provide an added level of
security.


FORCE FEEDBACK OPTIONS MENU
===========================
Force feedback settings under the Options menu are now properly linked
to the device.


FORCE FEEDBACK BEHAVIOR
===========================
Force feedback settings will now produce torque on steering wheels and
flight sticks. Game pads will remain rumble only. Some game pads will
attempt to emulate torque by rumbling. You may adjust the amount of
vibration using force feedback settings under the Options menu.


MULTIPLE FORCE FEEDBACK DEVICES
===========================
If you have multiple force feedback devices, force feedback will only be
active through the device that is mapped to steering input.


LOGITECH (TM) WINGMAN FORMULA GP & LOGITECH MOMO FORCE WHEELS
===========================
The game now recognizes separate gas and brake mappings for Logitech
Wingman Formula GP and Logitech Wingman Formula Force GP pedals. To
use this feature, go to the Start menu, select Settings, select Control
Panel. Within Control Panel, double-click Game Controllers, select
your Logitech device, and click on Properties. Click on Settings within
the Properties window, and uncheck "Pedal reported as... Combined".
Note: This only applies to LOGITECH wheels, other wheels should assume
combined axis mode to work properly with NFS HP2.


THURSTMASTER (TM) FORCE FEEDBACK RACING WHEELS
===========================
The game now maps the gas and brake pedals correctly for Thurstmaster
Force Feedback Racing Wheels.


3. PATCH 242 KNOWN ISSUES


MICROSOFT (TM) RACING WHEEL PEDALS
===========================
Setting the pedals to split axis mode is not currently supported. From
the controler properties in the control panel select combined axis mode.

MICROSOFT (TM) RACING WHEEL VIBRATIONS
===========================
When using the Win98 drivers for the MS Sidewinder (TM) Force Feedback
wheel under Windows (TM) XP and Windows 2000, vibrations may not be present.
See documentation for your device to install the appropriate drivers.

AUTO-CENTERING FORCES
===========================
Most racing wheels support device auto-centering. These forces can dampen
other forces such as collision and grip effects. It is suggested you turn
off or down these effects if you are not experiencing force feedback in
game play. See documentation for your particular device.
