If you have an american version Carmageddon 2 don't replace these files:
DATA.TWT
DATA\INTRFACE\creditslist.txt
DATA\INTRFACE\Interface.txt

Could you explain yourself? I don't have an american version to test myself but for example I don't see how replacing creditslist.txt could do any difference. Also if the patch is applied on a V1 or V1.1 game but Interface.txt isn't changed, the game might crash as the executable won't find the quitting message string.

creditlist.txt: The American version has an extra section indicating the publisher (Interplay).

data.twt from patch 2.0 contents the british localization.
But:
1) the American English language differs from the British English (eg "armor" - "armour");
2) the names of some powerups in the US version different from the British.

If you change this file, you get the British instead of American localization.

The same applies to the file Interface.txt.
British:
Skill level:
as hard as fisting a velociraptor
American:
Skill level:
harder than kissing a velociraptor

American version initially contains dialogue "yes / no" when you exit the game.
This feature in the British version appeared only in Patch 2.0.

Ah ok, localization, so it doesn't imply any game breaking bug. Interesting to know that the US version already had the quitting dialogue.

Works fine (with music ofc). Ok, so what's the difference between exes you initially posted? Also, I see you trimmed INTRFACE folder.

Originally I laid out files in which protection about copyings was removed by other person. He also nullified Safedisc Annihilator's signatures in these files. Probably, it leads to some floating error.

Later I independently removed protection from the executed files.

The matter is that 53 files from the INTRFACE folder in a patch 2.0 don't differ from files of the original British version. Therefore I moved away them from archive.

I still don't understand why music didn't work for you with patch from compatibility list. Did you drop it initially into US version?

I tried both with British and with the American version.

I tried on two computers: both with WinXP and with Win98 music doesn't play.
