Carmageddon 2: Music doesn't play after patching

Postby BrainRipper » Wed Aug 05, 2015 9:26 am

Music doesn't play at "Carmageddon 2: Carpocalypse now" with patch from this site http://www.zeus-software.com/files/nglide/c2_patch.zip because NoCD exe-files were cracked incorrectly.

You should replace exe-files from http://www.old-games.ru/forum/attachmen ... rar.15289/ and music will work. :)

The Superpatch V2 included in compatibility list comes with some compatibility improvements other exes don't have.

For me CD Audio works fine with it and if I use exes you attached the game crashes before race.

Did you replaced the exe-files after installing the Superpatch V2 or you replace it on the clean version?

This is the readme-file from official Super Patch V2.0, not a cracked (remove SafeDisc) version.

Only first scenario was right.

If the game is protected by Safedisc 1.xx then main game executable should have .ICD extension (.EXE is a wrapper in this case with about 300Kb in size). This game utilized a very specific verison of Safedisc 1.xx which is only compatible with Windows 9X OS. Therefore, it is impossible to play original (copy-protected) release of this game on NT-based systems (2000,XP and later) without unwrapping executables. Super patch from this site certainly have copy protection removed. And super patch was originally contained unwrapped executables.

No, it was protected by Safedisc 1.01.034. Both UK (blood and censored) versions and the US version.
And this version of Safedisc still don't work with NT OSs.
Asus P4P800 SE/Pentium4 3.2E/2 Gb DDR400 (3-3-3-8),
Radeon HD3850 Agp (Sapphire), Catalyst 14.4 (XpProSp3).
2 Voodoo2 12 MB (SLI), Win2k drivers 1.02.00 (XpProSp3).
