Hello, Forum!

So I just got out my good ol' copy of SoF 2 - Gold Edition  Very Happy

But I have a little problem getting it to run on my current system.. I actually got it to run on my old notebook, which also had Win7 x64, but I can't remember how I did it. All I know is that I have the same problem I had on my old machine.

I open the game via the desktop shortcut - instant crash, "SoF2.exe has stopped working" And now my screen is ridicolously bright, looks like the game f***ed with my contrast..

Here's what I have already tried:

Start as Admin

Compatibility(is that the right spelling? I'm from Austria so english isn't my first language..) - Windows XP(SP2), Windows XP(SP3), Windows 2000

Disabled all the visual effects

Disabled the desktop thingy(I really can't imagine what it would be called in english and google translate gives me something that doesn't look right at all..)

---------------------------------

I would be very thankful for any help from you guys, thanks in advance!

With kind regards,

Daniel "Da Zapfinger" T.

if you open submenu of the sof2, ( Right mouse click on the sof2 icon, somewhere is something like Solve CompatibiltyProblems * dunno correct spelling of it *,

i like the know the following of your computer:

Direct X Version, Your Graphic Card & Driver Versions,

Maybe some solution you could try:

- Reinstall the Game ( If you didnt try it yet ).
- BE sure your firewall isnt blocking the game.

ATI Catalyst drivers

If you have a ATI Catalyst drivers OpenGL Games wont always run, i suggest download the ATI Drivers 10.2, reinstall your current driver and install ATI Drivers 10.2, install again to verify you have succeed the installation,  be sure old drivers have been deleted.

Than go to 'START' and enter atioglxx.dll, make a copy of it and paste it into your sof2 folder.
Than search for opengl32.dll and copy and paste it into your sof2 folder.

Than download the latest drivers, and uninstall ATI Drivers 10.2 or 4, and install the latest driver.

If you did it correctly you can play sof2 now.

Better Tutorial:
Hidden: 

- Download ATI Drivers 10.2 (Some claim to have success with drivers up to 10.4. This does not work for all. I've never seen a case where 10.2 will not work.)

- Uninstall current drivers.

- Reboot; Install drivers 10.2.

- Reboot again; verify that you have successfully installed driver version 10.2 by launching the game. You should have no trouble. If you do, repeat the process again, making sure to completely uninstall old drivers, and install new ones.

- Open the start menu. Search for the file "atioglxx.dll" Make a copy of this file, and place the copy into your SOF2 folder.

- Also search for "opengl32.dll". Again, place a copy of this file into the SOF2 folder.

- Download the latest ATI drivers (at the time of this post, the latest drivers are 10.12). Uninstall driver 10.2. Reboot. Install drivers 10.12.


You can now play SOF2, while running the latest drivers for your video card.


you can give it a try, but i'm not sure if this will work, found it from a Quake 3 Arena forum, and sof2 runs on the Game engine of Q3A it should work.

Else give me your Computer Specs, and that might help.

Hope something will help to let you play this awesome game.

Regards,
Punisher

K, I actually got it to work by myself, thanks a lot though! :D

All I did was download the newest drivers for my graphics card and then put the opengl dll file into my sof2 folder, saw that solution in another forum post via google ^^

With kind regards,

Yeah, I'm still new to the game though... I never got to play it a lot on my old machine. Only like half of the first mission in prague and 1 assassination rmg mission... I never tried multiplayer.
