Hi there.

I have a problem running NFS Undercover. Namely, I cannot get past the loading screen after I select my profile - the game freezes without any warning message and I have to kill the process in Task Manager. This happens on both Origin and DVD version updated to 1.0.18. The game runs fine on patch 1.0.17, but this version lacks the Challenge Series mode.

I found a similar problem on PCGamingWiki and tried the suggested solution (limiting number of cores to 4) but it didn't work. I also tried running it with ThirteenAG's Generic Fix but it didn't help either.

Any ideas, guys?

My specs:
i7-8700k
GeForce 1080
16 GB RAM
Windows 10 x64

Have you tried turning off hyperthreading in the bios ?
Save the following as RunMe.cmd and put it in the same folder as the game exe then double click on it to run the game

@start /affinity 1 nfs.exe

assuming nfs.exe is the correct name

No, but to be honest I'd rather not compromise the performance of my PC for the sake of one game (which isn't even that good to begin with...). Also changing the setting each time I play the game sounds like a bit of an overkill.

Unfortunately it didn't work. Neither does making the game use one core only in Task Manager. I also tried patching nfs.exe with imagecfg.

Could you try with a new game, sometimes the version miht be incomoatible, you may want to have a backup of the savegame first.
