Gothic 3 - Community Patch 1.5.2

by Gorath, 2007-12-14 14:40:42

The busy as a bee community team released their new Unofficial Gothic 3 Community Patch today. v1.5.2's fix list is short - but in this case size does not matter:

Changes for Community Patch 1.5.2:

  • Deactivation of the copy protection
  • (no disk check -> improved load times)
  • (includes Microsoft VC++ Redistributable SP1)
  • (fixed: Universe Edition -> forced windowed mode due to typo in ge3.ini)
  • (now includes correct ge3.ini from CP 1.5.0)
  • (automatically uninstalls older CPs)

The compatiblity list is also worth a look:

Compatible language versions:
German, English, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Polish, Hungarian, Czech, Chinese (simple), Chinese (traditional), Universe Edition, Gamesload, download versions, (probably every G3 version worldwide)

This means CP 1.5.2 is compatible to the Gothic Universe bundle!

JoWooD has greenlit the deactivation of the copy protection for this one and all later Community Patches to make the work of the community team easier. Now all compatility issues caused by Community Patches, copy protection or a mix of both should be a thing of the past.
Kudos to JoWooD and the community team!

Edit: The patch file has been updated two times. First to include a Microsoft update and then again to replace the ge3.ini with the one included in CP 1.5.0.
I´ve added the underlined infos. They´re even more unofficial than the unoffical community patch. ;)
