Hidden and Dangerous 2 on Windows 10

Unread post by jacobston » Mon Aug 10, 2015 5:06 am

There have been a few issues reported on the RpR forum about compatibility issues between Hidden and Dangerous 2 and Windows 10, so I am just going to give a few solutions here to those having the same problems.


The first is a CTD when launching the game.

Some users reported the game would crash imeadiatly after launching, with no other error message. The current fix for this is to:
Open the HD2 setup (located in the H&D2 main directory) as an administrator
Disable fullscreen antiailiasing (2x and 4x will cause a fatal error)
Save changes, and run H&D2 as administrator


Next, people have been experiencing the game running in a window, even while in fullscreen mode. This causes parts of the screen to be cut off or otherwise not-visible.

The solution for this is as-yet unknown. Disabling the game running fullscreen may help, though this has not been proven. Others are saying that the problem has fixed itself after some time.


I will edit/reply to this post as more information surfaces.

I'm just pitching in to say that I've found a solution to the second problem, it being the game not running in fullscreen. This problem can be resolved as follows:

- Start HD2.
- Open task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del -> Task Manager)
- If you haven't done it already, click "More details" at the bottom left.
- Click the ">" next to the HD2 process.
- Right click the expanded process and select Maximize.

Problem solved :grin:

This seems to be working better if I wait until I arrive at the game's menu before I open task manager, but those interested should just assess what's working and what's not.

I have got one problem.

If i start hd2.exe, there is only circle of loading for 1 second and nothing more. I tried to set compatibility but it did not work. I started setup.exe, antialiasing is off and fullscreen too, but nothing changed.

Can you give me some tip?

And what exactly is CTD?

Thank you for help.

Hey guys. I found a solution using the dgVoodo2 wrapper. My game just refused to work in full screen, both the retail version and the GoG version. But with the dgVoodo2 wrapper I could force full screen.

I made a video on how to fix the issue, and hopefully it will work out like it did of me. I'm on Windows 8.1 by the way, but maybe the solution works for Windows 10 as well.

Tomme thanks for your try and your work, but unfortunately it doesn't work for me. I tried.

Creators Update for W10 has to be the real issue here :(

Ah shame :(

Can't believe how much of a pain in the ass this game is to run, in general it seems.

True. Unfortunately H&D 1 was much more stable

Either I get error 1628 or I get a "wrong CD code message when I try to run it on Windows 10. That key worked very well on Windows 7 and XP
