I just installed NFS Underground, only to find that the fonts on the Main
Menu (after the initial videos finish playing) are completely illegible. All
that I can see is boxes where the text should be. Is there any way to fix
this... hopefully without re-installing? *crosses fingers*

Turn up ansiotrophic settings on your video card driver.

I just assumed that a required font(s) were not installed. Why would the
Anisotropic settings have anything to do with it? *me scratches head*

Either way, I'm looking up that big word you just said in case that's the
solution :)

Because the text is implemented with some 3d aspects affected by the
ansiotropic filtering.

What graphics card do you have? I had all sorts of problems on an old
Geforce card that only had 32Mb od RAM on board. Once swapped to a 64Mb card
it was all OK.

I think it's time for an upgrade... or an entirely new computer.

There should be a 'ReadMe.txt' file in the support folder of where the game
is installed on your PC, this give lots of info on graphic cards and known
problems.

I have NFSU running quite happly on an AMD 1300MHz Duron, with 512MB ram and
an old Sparkle Geforce 3 Ti200 64Mb graphics card, most of the graphic
options are there (except crowds) and that card is only DirectX8, so you may
not need to get a completly new PC, but is is a good excuse :)
