Burnout 2: Point of Impact
|Burnout 2: Point of Impact|
|Release date(s)|| NA April 9, 2003|
EU May 9, 2003
|Mode(s)||Single-player, Multiplayer (2)|
|Input methods||GameCube Controller|
Burnout 2: Point of Impact is the first sequel to the racing game Burnout and builds upon this strong speed-driven franchise with improved gameplay, new game options and bigger, better and more insane crashes. Players can test their nerves and skills by taking to the air, sliding through corners, and swerving to avoid head-on collisions, while filling their meter to unleash a burst of speed previously exclusive to airplanes. In addition to an offensive driving 101, Burnout 2 features a four-player crash mode, six different locations with 30 stages, realistic weather effects, and 14 cars (plus hidden ones).
Burnout 2: Point of Impact has a native 16:9 display option, but it requires enabling it in its internal options and setting Dolphin's Aspect Ratio graphics setting to "Force 16:9". Using the widescreen hack with this title is not recommended.
Broken Aspect Ratio Detection
Low-Resolution Vehicle Textures
Certain vehicles in-game can render with low resolution textures. This is a bug in the GameCube version of the game. But, Dolphin seems to also have a bug with rendering those affected textures. See . Fixed in .
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.

|Windows XP||Intel Core 2 Duo E7400||NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT||Buggy sound Dolphin SVN R 3940 - Burnout 2 - GameCube Emulator||dTerenciano|
|Windows 7||AMD Phenom 9550||NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT||Perfect|
|Windows XP||AMD 64 X2 4000+||NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT||Full playable but no motor car sound|
|Ubuntu 10.04||Intel Core 2 Duo E8400||ATI Radeon HD 4850||No engine sound. Small and rare graphic corruption. Grinding sparks invisible and making the game run horribly slow if AA is enabled. Game frequently freezing and crashing.||Dark Fread|
|Ubuntu 10.04||AMD Phenom II X3 720||NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT||Running 2x Native Resolution, 2x AA, 4x AF @ 80-100%. Looks and sounds great will full performance settings and LLE on Thread. Some slowdowns, but pretty minor.||keller999|
|Fedora 20||AMD Phenom II X6 1090T||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti||60+ FPS. works great.||fast_rizwaan|
|Windows 7||Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280||Runs nearly perfectly, with full audio support using HLE audio. Does momentary hiccups when the game must load a really busy area but it's so rare and brief that it does not cause problems.||MasterV|
|Windows 8.1||AMD Athlon X4 750K @ 4.1GHz||AMD Radeon HD 7770||60+ FPS, with only minor occasional dips. This dive-bombs to around 45FPS on tracks with rain effects and all the way to 30FPS on tracks with snow effects.|
|Ubuntu 14.04||Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650||100% in menus and almost all stages; can have slowdown to 85% in rain, and one snow stage in particular has major freezing/slowdown issues (though only in one direction, and only for one part of the track, near the ski resort). Audio perfect. Replays can slow down to 90% while displaying many wrecked cars at once. Able to beat half the game including bonus stages with no major issue. Only one noticeable flashing texture but that was outside of the actual track, during a wreck. Missing exhaust flames while boosting.||Xerxes|
|Ubuntu 14.10||Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650||A lot of effects that were missing inare now fixed under OpenGL, such as rain, grind sparks, and flame exhaust/tail lights, making the experience while playing much better. There's also less slowdown in general throughout the game, however Crystal Summit Lake (snow conditions) still has major slowdown/stuttering like before which makes the stage almost unplayable.||Xerxes|
|Windows 10||Intel Core i7-7700k @ 4.2GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080||Perfect. Game runs at 100% / 60 FPS through all tracks and weather conditions.|
|Windows 10||Intel Atom x7-z8700||Intel HD Graphics||Perfect (50Hz).||tabletgaming.wiki|
