none of them work for me :/
if I try the .dll one, when I try to enter the game it says I need to have DirectX 9.0 installed, but I already have it.
The other one, I set the settings and then I click "Load". It enters the game, but I don't see any speedometer when I enter a car.
So$trYk3 - hey if you get that error message... about directx driver, I had that too. What I had to do was reinstall the proper directx drivers from Microsoft... and if its dx 9 reliant, it may not be compatible with anything higher (direct x 10+). Apparantly, even when I clicked on the installation of directx 9c from the game cd, it says all my drivers were up to date... but after reinstallation it might work for you (choose the user download that replaces files needed, not the dev package, and it will replace missing or incomplete files - the first option i believe).
