Need for Speed Carbon Patch

Need for Speed Carbon

If you intend to play Need for Speed Carbon (EA) online, you must upgrade using patch v1.4 , otherwise you will not be able to race online. It seems that the issues are mainly Vista specific, which is not surprising considering that Vista is a giant monster who feeds on your children, pets, and every thing that is pure and good in this world.

The following issues have all been resolved:

  • VISTA SPECIFIC. NFS Carbon Crashes on bootup on Vista with the patch 1.3 installed due to an allocator mismatch between bware and renderware. Patch 1.4 fixes the Vista crash by fixing the mismatch.
  • VISTA SPECIFIC. NFS Carbon .viv (EA Link version) crashes upon bootup on Vista due to an incompatible version of the PACE DRM Tool. Patch 1.4 utilises an updated, Vista compatible PACE DRM Tool

well i am downloading the patch now and will see if it works on vista home premium because i have played same installation dvd to install this game on xp last year and it worked like charm but in vista i am not able to see the racing warning even after having nfsc installed on my vista laptop for 30 mins.

Will it work on the Carbon demo? I have an Intel Core 2 Duo chip set. Could that be the problem?

I think you should get a Nividia Geforce 8500Gt vidoe card to make the game work

well me nfsc works very well on my vista laptop but it seems the game i mean to have a memory leak, after a certain time i noticed the game starts at a decent lvl and then after a good while it becomes sluggish and i saw it’s because the game is using 400mb of ram, just the software not even graphic memory, and the number kept increasing about 5mb every second and it didn’t stop untill i forced closed the software

in my previous post, theres a correction to make. the sentence ‘ the game still works fine in his PC with CTD!!!’ is actually ‘ the game still works fine in his PC without CTD!!!’
Forgive me for that :)
