About a year ago I noticed NFS HP2 for the GC had some dev files left over, I totally forgot to post about it. It only seem's to be in the PAL/EU disk and not US.

Those files are hp2r.dif, hp2r.dlf, hp2r.dol & hp2r.dsf. It turned out hp2r.dol had some debug stats enabled.

To enable yourself follow these instructions.

  1. Find: Need for Speed - Hot Pursuit 2 (Europe) (En,Fr,De).
  2. Extract with IsoBuster.
  3. Goto NFS_ HP2 [SYSTEM] and rename main.dol to main.bak.
  4. Copy the contents of NFS_ HP2 [SYSTEM] to NFS_ HP2 [GH2P69].
  5. Rename hp2r.dol to main.dol.
  6. Open Dolphin.
  7. Goto > Options > Configure.. > Paths.
  8. Set DVD ROOT to the location of NFS_ HP2 [GH2P69].
  9. Set the Apploader location to that of your apploader.img within NFS_ HP2 [GH2P69].
  10. Cick file > select main.dol.
  11. Once ingame press pause, left trigger and debug stats show up.
  12. Press right trigger and you can hide the pause menu (unsure if in retail).
Not sure of any other changes but never saw this mentioned so enjoy.

Result if you done it right,

It's not that major as the ps2 has more debug functionality left over (including this) in the retail. however it is nice to have as the gaemcube version is basised of off the pc version(inferior)?

nfs commonly on the wii / gamecube have had their debug symbols intact which has majorly helped the modding community overthere to deconstruct the pc exe to allow for advanced mods :)
