Need For Speed: High Stakes easter egg

Choose the Mediterranean Paradise track. There will be a section of the road while going around the canyon where you will go through a small stone tunnel. This tunnel is similar to the one that a Porche 911 Turbo and a Ferrari 550 Marenello are racing though on the cover of Need for Speed: High Stakes. Also, the large stone bridge you travel over before crossing the finish line is modeled after the large stone bridge in the Need For Speed: High Stakes track "Celtic Ruins."

Police detection

While driving, be aware of the shadowed bar below the rearview mirror. It will start to climb with green and then red as you close in on a cop. If a cop is already chasing you and has issued a roadblock, keep an eye on the bar. If the strip started with yellow, it indicates that a road block is approaching.

Extra points hints

-When you see a police car ahead, ram it to get him to chase you. Lose the police car and you will get extra points for a hit-and-run. Look for the dirt road shortcuts to lose the police and get ahead of other drivers.

-Be the police in Hot Pursuit mode. You will get 25,000 points each time you complete one mini-mission.

-Start "You're The Cop" mode in single player under the beginner difficulty setting. Select either the Crown Victoria or the BMW M5 (the opponents are easier to catch). After that, go to National Forest and catch the fourth and third cars. On the last two, hit the third one to make him lose control, then arrest the first place car. Immediately catch the second player that you forced to lose control to minimize the time to around 138, if done quickly enough. The procedure is quick but easy, giving you over 25,000 points if you throw in a couple of jumps. Now restart and do it again.

-In challenge mode, pick the Pursuit Crown Victoria, then choose Outback II and set it for two, four, or eight laps. When you start the race, get your top speed points then slow down to about 75 mph. After that, step on the gas and get your top speed points again. You can keep doing this as long as desired. You can also do this on any other track, but Outback II is the easiest.

-During Hot Pursuit or Championship mode, it is possible to get a great amount of points. When racing, get the minimum position needed to proceed (for example, third, second, and first place). Race and get third place. When you get third place and collect your points, restart the race. Only this time, get second place. Collect your points, restart the race, and get first place. You now have the points of all three places and more than if you had just gotten first place the first time.

-Play You're The Cop mode. When you start, put your sirens on first then call for a roadblock. They will put out a spike strip. All four speeders will run over them. You can then arrest them. Immediately afterwards, you will get the points.

Escaping Police

-When you have one or two police chasing you, swerve around things such as incoming traffic, trees, poles, or any other immobilized objects. The police may not see it and crash into it. This helps you lose them. If you are way ahead of the pack and do not feel like having a police on your tail, if your radar detector detects an incoming radar (or police), zoom on the road in front of you. See where the police are parked, and slam into the back of their car. It will be a hit and run, but the police car will be dead. You will not even get a yellow star.

-When you want to get rid of the cop chasing you at a close distance, get just behind him so that your front tire is touching his back tire and then turn your car slightly in the direction of the cop car. The officer will get turned around and end up facing in the wrong direction. This should give you enough time to get away. If you are really lucky, he may hit the other racers and cause a big accident.

-When cornered, press RESET CAR to start back on the road and lose the cops.

-To easily escape from police radar, when you get close to a cop, stay on the correct side of the road and drive 80 mph at the most.

-When there is a cop on your tail, wait for it to come to your side. When it is trying to ram you from the side, brake as fast as possible. A recommended area to do this is at Coastal Parkland. The best car to use to make you crack up at the cop is the McLaren F1 LM or the McLaren F1. If done correctly, you will see the cop ram into the wall.

-During Hot Pursuit mode, whenever a police cruiser attempts to push you off the road try pushing it towards the other side of the road. Eventually the cruiser will spin out of control and crash.

-While getting chased by the cops, let the cop get a bit ahead of you and then do a California Stop to the officer. It should spin him out and you should only swerve slightly. This will give you enough time to get away from the cops. Note: A California Stop is when you hit the back left/right wheel with your front wheel. This will spin the car out.

-After reaching a certain point in a police chase, the cops will try disabling your vehicle using tire shredding spikes in roadblocks. Listen to the police chatter on the radio. A unit will say what side of the road the spikes are on when they are set. Then, when you reach that roadblock, smash through the barricade on the side without spikes. If the unit does not specify what side the spikes are on, then assume they are across the entire road. In this case you will have to ram through one of the police cars on either side of the strip to get past it safely, or go around the entire roadblock if there is room or take an alternate route. If you hit the strip, you will have no chance of getting away without a ticket.

-Drive close to traffic or through narrow spaces and near obstacles while police pursue you. They will probably swerve back and forth behind you, and there is a good chance they will blindly smash into anything you drive close to. Most of the time if they hit a wall, tree, or oncoming traffic at high speed, their car will be totaled. This may also happen if they slide into guard rails hard enough or too many times. Also, when coming up on a police car, if you are far ahead of the other racers you can ram the cop. If you are traveling fast enough and hit their side you can total them, leaving you with less trouble to deal with later. Note: Wrecked cruisers will call for a tow truck and re-spawn on the track. Totaling them just helps to get them off your back temporarily.

Easy wins in single event

While directly next to someone in a race and they are getting chased by a cop, if they are in front of you slow down to where you are directly behind them on either the left or the right. Slowly speed up to where the hood of your car is on the side next to their trunk. Very quickly slam into their car to make them spin out of control. If they are too slow, they will be caught by the cop. After this happens, continue to do this until you are the only one remaining.

Easy money hints

-In challenge mode, set the difficulty on advanced, and use only one opponent and give him a M5. Then, just select your car and a short track. Make sure to set it to one lap. By doing this you will get either $2,100 or $1,500.

-Play "Single Challenge" and set the number of players to "1". Then, turn on the cops, turn off the traffic, set opponents to "1", and make the opponent an "Elise" car. Choose a short track (Coastal Parkland recommended), and make the race two laps. Race it with a fast car, such as the Ferrari 360 Spider. If you earn first place on both laps, win the race, and outrun the police two or three times, you should get a total of $3,500 to $4,200.

-Begin a single race in advanced mode vs. one opponent Start the race with any car on any track Proceed with the race until police chase your car. Immediately turn around and run back until you lose the police. When you lose the cops turn, back again. Do this until you get as many points as desired.

Clean race

There are two objectives you must do to unlock two kinds of cars. These two involve clean racing. For a clean race, avoid hitting any object that inflicts damage on your car, such as hitting another car, a wall, etc. Hitting road signs, going offroad, or landing very hard on huge jumps are excluded since those do not do any damage.

Slow down opponents

-Any opponent can be scared. If your opponents are directly besides you, suddenly steer towards them, as if you were attempting to ram their car off the road. They will panic and veer away from your sudden move. If you are lucky, they may veer away too much, thus causing them to crash into an object, slowing them down. You can also do this to police that are on your tail.

-Another way to slow down opponents is to get behind their car and ram it 180 degrees from the bottom left or right of it. Note: This can also be done to cops.

Police check

If you have the Rear Mirror option on, you will see a meter (radar detection meter) at the bottom of it. If you do not see this meter, it indicates that there are no police in the current race. If you happen to see that meter at the bottom of your rear view mirror, be aware as there are law enforcers on that course.

Easy arrests in be-the-cop mode

-Instead of turning on your sirens right away. Sneak up on them. When you are on them, turn on your sirens, spin them out, turn around, and hit them head on. This will result in a one hit bust every time.

-As a cop, get into an area were you have some bit of room to swerve. Next do a California stop of the car you are chasing. This will make the car spin viciously out. Next, turn around as fast as you can and hit the front of the car. This will total the car and it will be a bust. Note: A California Stop is when you hit the back left/right wheel with your front wheel. This will spin the car out.

Faster cars hints

-Note: This procedure requires editing a game file; creating a backup copy of the file before proceeding is recommended. With a text editor, edit the "cars.ini" file in the "cars" sub-folder in the game directory. Change the "mass=" value to "100" for a faster car.

-Open the folder of an excellent car, such as the F1, F50, etc. Copy the "car.ini" file from here and paste it over the original "car.ini" file of a slower car in its own folder (for example, the Elise). This automatically gives that car the speed and handling characteristics of the better vehicle. Note: Back up the original "car.ini" file of the slower car in the event that you want to revert it back to its standard settings.

-For fast police cars, edit the "car_cop.ini" file and change the "mass=" value to "100".

-Use the following trick to boost your car's speed upon reset. Note: This procedure requires editing a game file; creating a backup copy of the file before proceeding is recommended. With a text editor, edit the "racetune.ini" file in the "ai" sub-folder in the game directory. Find the "Player.ResetSpeedMPH=" line and change its value to 150 or more, but less than 350 or 400. Using too high a value will result in your car becoming unstable for several seconds. Whenever you are bashed against a wall, an obstruction, or something similar, press RESET and your car will go off at rocket speed. Note: The line "Player.ResetSpeedMPH=" occurs more than three times in the "racetune.ini" file for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels; as well as for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels in cop mode. You can also intentionally bash the wall if you are losing the race and press the RESET to go flying.

-Note: This procedure requires editing a game file; creating a backup copy of the file before proceeding is recommended. In the game's "cars" folder are sub-folders of every car. Every folder, except the ones prefixed with a "t" (for example, tbus), has several .ini files. One sets tuning and data for the normal player car (car.ini), one is for NPC cops (car_cop.ini), another is for the NFS version of that car (car_hp.ini), and the last one is for NPC racers (carracer.ini). For very fast cars with very good handling, it should look similar to:

' Porsche 911 Turbo Statistics
[basic]
' dimensions -- in general these are data parameters and
' should not be used for tuning
Mass=100
BodyShape=6
WheelBase=2.350
FrontTrackWidth=1.4650
RearTrackWidth=1.5220
VehicleHeight=1.2140
HeightOfGravity=0.35170
RearSlideFactor=0.0
FrontGripBias=0.480

' aerodynamic factors
' aero coefficients are major tuning variables!
AeroDragCoefficient=0.0
AeroFrontDownforceCoefficient=9.0
AeroRearDownforceCoefficient=10.0
BodyLiftCoefficient=0.0
UnderBodyDragCoefficient=0

Change the "Mass" to "100", "AeroDragCoefficient" to "0", and "UnderBodyDragCoefficient" to "0". Do this in the "car.ini" and "car_hp.ini" and the normal and NFS versions of whatever vehicle you choose will both be unbeatable by normal NPCs. However, if you want the cops to beat everyone, change those values in the "car_cop.ini" file. If you want a guarantee failure in a "fair" race, change the mentioned values in the "carracer.ini" file. However, because of the RPMs limit put on every car, the NFS version of a car now has only a few mph higher top speed. You will be surprised at the acceleration. Just steer clear of other cars. They are heavier and will toss you aside like a leaf.

Slowed or stopped opponents

-Note: This procedure requires editing a game file; creating a backup copy of the file before proceeding is recommended. With a text editor, edit the "racetune.ini" file in the "ai" sub-folder in the game directory. When you open the file you will see six game modes ([Beginner], [Intermediate], [Advanced], [Beginner_copMode], etc). Copmodes are defined for Hotpursuit and Single Challenge (driving with cops on) and Other modes for Championship and Single Challenge (driving without cops). Under each mode there is a variable called "Racer.OverallSpeedFactor=0.80" . Set its value to 0.5 or 0.2 (for example,, "Racer.OverallSpeedFactor=0.50 "). This will reduce your opponent's speed considerably, and you can easily win the race. You can use any value within 0 to 1 for that variable. Setting "Racer.OverallSpeedFactor=0" will stop your opponents. Note: There are a number of variables in "racetune.ini" file that can be modified for making new cheats as desired. Usage of each variable is stated at bottom of the file.

-Use the helicopter, roadblocks, and backup more than three times in a game.

-Note: This procedure requires editing a game file; creating a backup copy of the file before proceeding is recommended. With a text editor, edit the "aichasedefs.ini" file in the "ai" sub-folder in the game directory. Locate the "SingleRaceSupportMax", "#startPursuitLevel", "#startPursuitStrategy", and "#freezeCops" entries and change each of their values to "100".
