Default Gothic 2 NOTR under vista 64

June 20th, 2010, 16:00
Holy moley! I got it working by installing only the GothicStarter 2.6a (World of Gothic: http://www.worldofgothic.com/dl/?go=dlfile&fileid=90) and nothing else. Now the game launches OK and I've got the voice-overs. Yipee! (Note: By installing I mean unzipping the files and placing them in the correct Gothic 2 folders.)

However, reading Ondo's reply above, I think that would have fixed it as well. I suspected something like that, but didn't have the l337 skillz to figure it out. Thanks for the advice. For now, I'll stick with no community patches, but the GothicStarter. I've finally got G2 NOTR running on Win7 and that's swell!

Afterthought: How come Ergonpandilus' and Coaster's games worked with the community patch and mine didn't? Shouldn't the sound files been renamed for them as well? Well, who cares. The main thing is, we all got G2 running on Win7. Two thumbs up.
