System Shock 2
But thanks for your suggestions
1. Right Click both the game exe file
2. Go to compatibility tab
3. Check "Run as Administrator"
4. Click apply. Do steps 1-4 with the trainer file.
5. Run both game and trainer.
You may want to disable your anti-malware software (anti-virus first then firewall). If this workaround method does not solve the problem please re-enable the software again.
Make sure to check the DDFIX option during install otherwise the game will almost instantly freeze on dual and quad core configs -- which is a well documented issue of the Dark Engine, the engine powering the game.
And no, despite its age, this game is not dead... People still develop missions for it. have a look at the missions archive on Strangebedfellows.de or on SS2shock.com (both sites are in English)
