Refusal to Patch to 1.12

Unread post by [1FJD] Olt Fudge » Tue Jul 01, 2014 9:15 pm

Loooooong time since I've posted here. But I thought I'd try the game out since the last time I played it, some 10 years ago. I've installed HD2 and HD2SS up to 1.11. I've downloaded the 1.12 patch, but when I load it, it says it's already up to date (Which it isn't) - I relaunch the game and it's still 1.11. Any tips?

Hi, try following:

Go to Start -> Search for "regedit" and execute registration editor ->

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Illusions Softworks -> Hidden & Dangerous 2
(if you have 64-bit Windows: ... -> Software -> Wow6432Node -> Illusions Softworks -> Hidden & Dangerous 2)

Now look for the keys "version" and "version_spec"
Change both values to 1.07.0000.
Now try to install the Sabre Squadron 1.12 patch.

Be careful with the registry. Change only what's written above :mrgreen:

Just looked in the registry, I've found "version" which is already set to 1.07.0000 but I don't see anything called "version_spec"

Maybe you have to change "version" to 1.11.0000, then patch the game.. :-?
Also possible that it has nothing to do with the registry.

Or he is using the wrong 1.12?
