Trying to get this glorious game working again...

Hi all,

So happy I found this site is still running. I used to play until about 2009, then after an enormous break I found I'd lost the CD-ROMs. A chance google yesterday led me to a certain rock paper shotgun article... and so here I am!

Installation is done ok, but having some in-game issues.
1. Had the black vision modes problem, which I fixed with the dgVoodoo2 fix, but now clicking on the mouse in-game brings me back to the desktop!
2. Program still asks for cd key to begin online multiplayer, even though I replaced the exe with the no key crack exe.

I humbly beseech your assistance.

Thanks x-M-x.  Smiley

Can I ask, the master server patch 2.4, is it not bundled in the AIO download pack? Totally fine if it isn't, I just want to be sure I'm not covering old ground.

I'll give the King Kenny rez install a try. I hope this will fix the black sceen issue and my new mouse issue (see above).

Thanks again. Smiley

The MSP was never included in the AIO, simply because the MSP gets updated over time.


The idea of the "AIO EDITION" was one time pack and don't need to update it anymore.


Hope that helps


Cheers

The vision fix patch I made is good for singleplayer use only. The master server patch has a similar fix via a console command.

I highly recommend dgVoodoo 2 to fix the vision mode. It is currently the only fully-functional fix. The other two options disable the vision mode so you can see clearly, whereas dgVoodoo 2 actually fixes the vision mode to work properly.
