Tuning tips for Need for Speed Shift 2 Unleashed

imageHere are some tuning tips that webDotWiz has found useful in Shift 2 Unleased.

Steering assistance – Yes

This tip is from the Need for Speed forums and helps get rid of most of the twitchiness in the steering. The original post emphasised that regardless of whether you turn off all other assists, at least leave Steering Assist turned on.

Full damage

Rather than simulated damage, webDotWiz has found a hint from a post on the Need for Speed forums to turn on Full Damage. This setting seems to “calm down” the AI cars somewhat.
