American Chopper 2: Full Throttle is motorcycle enthusiast's game based on Discovery Channel's hit TV series. Gamers take on the role of Paul Sr., Paulie, Mikey or Vinnie and are challenged to build four choppers for an upcoming motorcycle competition. All the while, gamers must compete in family battles, races and other biker challenges in order to earn bike parts and the respect of Paul Sr. Players test their custom creations at the final showdown.

Problems

Purple Frames Between FMVs

This game required XFB Real for FMVs to show up. Mostly fixed with Hybrid XFB in 5.0-5874, but purple frames still appear between clips unless XFB to Texture Only is disabled.

Enhancements

Widescreen Patch

The Widescreen Hack does not work with this title. This Gecko code will enable 16:9 mode for races.
