Help

Hey guys! I just joined this community and was wondering if some of you could help or point me in the right direction.
I love SS2! I bought it when I was in grade 10 and played it for hours. I've played it on and off for some time but, stopped years ago. Now I really want to play it again!

I have the original disk and everything. Whenever it installs to Windows XP, it refuses to run. I've tried the "set compatibility" thing and even did some sort of thing in DOS while installing and it still doesn't work.

I just get a black screen when I try opening the game. A second after the black screen, I am returned to windows to get that error reporting window. >:(

Maybe I'm mistaken (and correct me if i'm wrong please!) but, I heard it had something to do with Safe Disc. I tried a cracker program but, it gave me some bullshit like "random error" when I tried to crack the .exe. I can't seem to find an effective cracker/patch and I doubt the one I had was even functional. TTLG forums only identified the possible issue but didn't help in finding the tools to get it. I've looked through google but, gotten mainly broken-links or corrupt programs.

Any help would be greatly thanked. Thanks! :)

AHhh! Thanks!!

...

I just tried this now. It doesn't seem to make a difference. :( I tried the shock2fix.exe as well. No work there either. I took a look into the error report and it looks like it has something to do with safe-disc because of the shock2.ICD file. :(

Could be my geforce too now that i'm reading.

I downloaded the "latest" patch and it turns out that I cannot use it because, my version is 2.5 already.

hmm, i'm guessing hardware related then. Last time I tried to play ss2 on winxp I had no problems.

I could as well be. I've been reading some stuff regarding Geforce and the game. Last time I had it on, I was using a Geforce 2. I recently upgraded to a newer card.

I need to find a copy to break the copy protection. I own the original disk. I heard it's different from comp to comp regarding the Safe-Disc thing.
