    brb

    back. no, couldn't get it to run. tryed it with blood patch and running it in compat mode, no joy

    may have found something


    brb


    back again... lol

    i have found the solution. you need the no cd crack. I have tried it and it works.

    also don't you think carma2 is much better than tdr?

    So if I get a cd crack for it it will work? What about this blood patch, will I need it?

    It tells me 'Incorrect Vesrion of Windows' (Not supported on NT) --- just after install, no cracks or anything.

    Yeah thats what happened to me when installed it . that NT message thing. but just get the no cd crack and it should work, as i say i've been playing it.
    you probably won't need any patches because the crack changes the exe file any way. try it without first, proabbly work

    Carmageddon WORKED in XP (Well is was)

    I got Carmageddon 2 working in XP Pro, I used the Carma 2 CD Crack and it worked fine, UNTIL:-

    Once I installed my Microsoft SideWinder Joypad, everytime I ran the game I got the famous "illegal operation" as soon as I took to off to worked again, so theres some sort on conflict between those two in XP (Worked fine in ME)

    Another thing I tried:- was

    Installing the Carmageddon 2 ver2.0 patch to see if this would cure my problem with my joypad ever since I have installed the patch I get "Sorry, Not Supported On Windows NT" I am going to uninstalled the whole lot and then install Carma 2 without the Joypad and apply the Carma 2 CD Crack..

    I'll keep you posted:-

    If you require the Carma 2 CD Crack let me know and I'll email you it!

    yep, carmageddon 2 works great for me..even without no cd crack or blood patch, using xp pro :)
     
  11. I have the same problem running on XP when I installed my sidewinder. I have a different game pad(USB) and I tried it as well, the game still crashed.

    Working..., in what mode?

    For you guys who say you've got Carmageddon 2 working, is this in hardware mode or software mode?

    I've tried all the tricks (including no CD patch, XP compatibility settings...) and cannot get it to run in hardware mode (D3D). Software mode works OK, but the graphics suck!

    I have a GeForce3 and even tried using Glide Wrappers to trick it, but the game crashes everytime.

    Any help would be appreciated!!

    I just installed it and played it.. ;)

    got mine running with the no cd patch in hardware mode, but couldn't finsih the last level so I gave up and played TDR (which isn't as good)
     
  15. For all those who got C2 running on XP with the no cd patch in hardware mode. What kind of game controller were you using. Game runs fine for me except when I install a game controller.

    i got sound problems to, but since the game isn't designed or supposed to run on NT based systems and accroding to the makers isn't going to be and therefore isn't supported by them. I'm greatfull for what I can get

    happy driving!
