Carma 2 on Win 10?
#1 Submitted: Sat, 28/01/2017 - 13:16

Howdy all, long time carma fan here, I remember wasting countless hours of my life on C1 and C2 way back when.

I used to play it on an old P166 with MMX and 16mb RAM lol, as you can imagine C2 ran like a sumo wrestler doing the 110m hurdles! But I still loved it even with the insane loading times I used to face on that system.

Fast forward to today and I've just rejoined the ranks of the PC world and have been digging out loads of old classics to play alongside DayZ/Arma 3/Escape from Tarkov/Star Citizen etc. & with a bit of fiddling I've managed to get Settlers 3 & Seven Kingdoms running on Windows 10. However I cannot get Carma 2 to run for the life of me.

I've done some googling but all the advice I've found has been for people with Steam/GOG editions, not original disc copies.

I've got nGlide installed (but it seems on here that is not a preferred option), and when I try running it D3D, DDraw or 3DFX I get the same message telling me "sorry, not supported on windows NT"

I'm running Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, Intel i7 4820K, 16GB DDR3 RAM and a MSi GTX980 4GB.

If someone could point me in the right direction that would be awesome.

Also, if I manage to find my copy of Carma 1 again am I going to have issues with that too? (original non splat pack UK zombie version)

Many thanks in advance for any help =)

scratch that, finally got it working now, after some more searching while downloading some extra cars for when I manage to get it working.

If you have a look through the list of files on the link below, there is a link to download the GOG v3 patch which has fixed it a treat (using nGlide as I already had it installed, but might try and remove it to see how it runs without).

Just thought I would back here in case it helps anyone else in the future =)

Sorry for the triple posting, but still having issues now.

So GOG patch has got the game running sweet.

However still has zombies (patch said it would make them peds with blood), but more importantly I'm trying to add some extra cars to it either via carstockalypse or manually.

I've extracted the files to the c2 folder like I used to on my old PC, open up carstockalypse and they are in the list on the left, use the arrows to add them to the in game list on the right and hit OK. When I reopen carstockalypse the cars I just added are no longer in the in game list.

So I tried adding them manually but there is no opponents.txt file anywhere to be seen!?

Any ideas?

Hello, some details:

- the GOG V3 patch doesn't install blood, it's intended FOR the English blood version. I guess that part in the readme is confusing.
- So if you want blood, you have to apply the blood patch first (it's at RR2000 as well).
- nGlide is the recommended option (or dgVoodoo 2 if there's a problem with nGlide). D3D should be avoided, especially if you want to mod the game (that mode resizes all 256*256 textures down to 128*128).

I reply about the opponents.txt problem in the other thread.

... and carmageddon add-ons at road reaction.

Thanks yet again for the help with this dude. I've since realised I was misreading the GOG patch readme file and have added blood. Your help in the other thread has got carstockalypse working for me now as well so I can finally enjoy gaming gold again in all it's mod'd glory =)

I don't want to make a mess with new topic, so I'm gonna stick around that one.

I've got Steam version of Carpocalypse Now on Windows 10. I've been having problems with the in-game music, which should be playing, but it doesn't. All the sounds and rest of the game run smoothly, but driving without music kills much of the atmosphere.

And now the best part. Years ago I had a pirate copy on XP, Vista and 7, and music was there, running as it should do. I even managed to get it on pirate copy of GOG version on 10, although only after numerous reinstalls. Needless to say, reinstalls, renaming .exe files and fiddling around with S button and settings in-game did not work with Steam version. That makes Carma2 my yet another legit game that works worse than pirate copy. Please, tell me that you've got solution for this problem that isn't WinAmp in background.
