that does sound reassuring...but if it ran on Vista 64-bit...then wud make me feel a whole lot better.
not sure if it acts the same as real vista, but i have put the exe file in compatibility mode for windows vista service pack 2 within my windows 7 ultimate 64 bits, and game runs normally
does anyone remember Shodan's famous quote?
" Look at you, hacker: a pathetic creature of meat and bone, panting and sweating as you run through my corridors. How can you challenge a perfect, immortal machine? " cool huh!
game needs to be in 2.3 patch, which is latest official patch
which is here:
next you need the unofficial 2.4 patch
which is here:
some info from the readme included in 2.4 patch
You must have a valid install of SS2 v2.3. You may need to update to v2.3 first.
Extract the contents of the "new_dark.zip" and "contrib.zip" archives into your SS2 directory, and
you are done.
v2.4 should be able to load savegames made with v2.3, but this is best avoided. Savegames made
with v2.4 are however NOT compatible with v2.3.
If OpenAL is available on your system, it can be enabled in the Audio options menu through the option
"Hardware Acceleration", which will toggle between "ON", "OFF" and "OpenAL". If you don't have OpenAL
but you want to use it, you will have to install the OpenAL libraries first (link provided below).
IMPORTANT: The "Visual Studio 2008 SP1 C++" and "DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010)" runtime
DLLs are required to run (the DirectX ones are only required when running with DX9,
which is default). While most systems probably already have them installed, by default
or through other applications and games, they can be missing on some. Below are the
official download links.
