NFSMW Extra Options is a mod forĀ Need For Speed Most Wanted (the one from 2005), created by ExOptsTeam.


Extra Options is a script mod which improves your gaming experience by many ways.


(Some options are disabled by default. Don't forget to check the 'NFSMWExtraOptionsSettings.ini' file out.)

+ (New!) Change Tire Steering Angle in Menus

> You can now change it from the .ini! Get it straight, or turn it around; it's all up to you!

+ (New!) NOS Trail Repeat Count

> You don't want to see stretching taillight glows while hitting NOS? Now it's possible!

+ (New!) Longer Profile Names

> Instead of the standard 7, you can now have up to 15 characters in your profile names.

> We also enabled the use of special characters in them!

! Don't use any character which isn't allowed in File/Folder names on Windows. Or else, you will be unable to save your profile.

+ (New!) Prologue Fix

> You won't get forced to play prologue races again after making some progress anymore.

+ Lap and Opponent Controllers

- You can have from 0 (which makes the race unlimited) to 127 (Really long races) laps.

> Maximum opponents can now be limited with 15 instead of 3. (More than 16 players will crash the game.)

! These options are valid for LAN races, too.

> You can change the variety of opponent car models by changing Maximum Unique Opponent Cars count.

> You can let AI opponents select cop cars!

> You can also have NFS Carbon Style randomizations, without vinyls on cars.

! If you use "Expand Memory Pools" option, you will be able to see all your opponents, instead of just 6.

+ Hide Online from Main Menu

> This option won't have any function until a wild NFSMW server emulator appears. So, you can remove it from the menu.

+ Show Tollbooth and Challenge Modes in Quick Race Menu

> Your time trial game mode and fancy pursuits are now available in Quick Race.

+ Show Special Vinyl Category

> Custom vinyls that you see on Blacklist rivals' cars; just go install them from the Vinyls menu.

! Some vinyls don't work for some cars.

+ Change Splash Screen Time Limit

> 30 seconds aren't enough? Make it a minute, an hour, maybe a day!

+ Use Drift Camera Angle Everywhere

> Birds eye free roam? Yeah, it's here!

+ Unlock All Things

> This will unlock everything in game. Like a season pass, but it's for FREE!

> You can enable or disable it anytime, just press "F5"!

+ Remove Barriers

> Locked area barriers or route indicators, remove if you don't want them!

+ Carbon-Styled Race Progress

> No more LAPS 1/1! You'll see % progress on 1-lap races now.

+ Enable subtitles for English!

> You want to know what they talk about, but you can't understand what do they say? This is for you!

+ Toggle Headlights and Cop Lights

> Press H to toggle headlights.

> Press O to toggle cop lights.

! If you are playing Most Wanted Online, others will see if your lights are on/off.

+ Show More Race Options

> You can set cops' Heat Level (density, not the x1-10 one) directly from where you select laps, difficulty and stuff!

> You can add AI opponents in Tollbooth races. (Note: AI racers won't move on some races.)

+ Save/Load Hot Position

> You can save your place in the world and teleport it when you want.

> Press 'LShift + 1-5' to save, 'LCtrl + 1-5' to load.

> Hot positions are stored in "NFSMW\TRACKS\" file. You can open it with any text editor.

+ Show Debug Car Customize

> Enable the option from config file. It will add My Cars option with Debug icon into Main Menu.

! Be careful. This option can mess with your stock cars, so always add them to My Cars menu before doing anything.

+ Garage Camera Hacks

> Rotate it down to flip that garage upside down.

> Zoom it out to see where you are.

> Enable camera movement on any menu, so you can rotate your car around while you're tuning it.

+ Force-enable Black Edition features.

2) Find the car you like.

3) While it's on screen, press F4.

4) Start any Quick Race (Select any car, you'll get the frozen one.) or Challenge Series event (With your superfast Pizza delivery car! :D), or go for a Free Roam**.

* Don't try to select a car from the Add New Car option on My Cars menu. Select it from already added ones.

+ Rog in Blacklist 15 (ONLY FOR EXPERTS)

> Change the MaximumBlacklistRival option from ini, open the Blacklist 15 menu and select him (#16).

> Achieve better top speeds! Squeeze the most juice from your powerful engine!

+ Speedbreaker Tweaks

> You can now set the fill speed limit, fill time and mass for your speedbreaker.

+ Show Non-Pursuit Cops in Minimap

+ Skip Career Intro

> You can skip prologue races and have 2 cars (BMW M3 GTR E46 and Porsche 911 GT2 (996)) in your safehouse.

! IMPORTANT! If you disable this option and load a save with this option enabled, it will start you from prologue.

+ Multiple Instances
