I love carmageddon 2, it wwas my first carmageddon and it's the reason why I'm here. I've been playing it a few times just to remember and it's still a great game so it's great that is coming to GOG.

Waiting for the reddit!

This release is VERY impressive.
It isn't just the original game wrapped up with a lot of tools to make it compatible, they hacked the executable directly to update it, it's like a patch 15 years later!

Good Guys GOG

About the resolution, this version comes with nGlide as the default glide wrapper, and it lets you change the resolution (native or custom) and proportions to your liking. (4:3 is original, 16:9 will stretch the game a bit)

No changes have been made to the executable netcode-wise. So multiplayer games won't work well at all over the internet. LAN games will work very nicely and you don't need VPN programs as the GOG version comes with an IPX wrapper.

The double error crash is new to this GOG version of C2 and is still under investigation (heh). You can however try some of this I guess:

Quote:
1) Please make sure that you use "Run as Administrator" to install and to start the game (right click on the shortcut or setup file and select "Run as Administrator").

2) Please add the game to your anti-virus/firewall software's exception/trusted list.

3) Install the June 2010 DirectX runtime package, then use the DirectX web installer.

You can find the ZIP file containing the 2010 package installation files here:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8109

You will have to extract the files into some folder, then open that folder and launch the DXSETUP.exe file in order to proceed with the installation.

Afterwards, download the latest DirectX web installer and use it as well:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35

4) Using an unusual DPI setting has been known to cause problems for some games. Please follow these steps to reset it to the default value and let me know if it helped:
I) Right-click an empty section of your desktop and go to “Personalize”,
II) Click “Display” in the bottom-left corner
III) Change your DPI setting to '100% (Default) and confirm by clicking “Apply”.

.

vvv @Benny: I don't think so. The mini pack doesn't offer the GOG updates, plus it was especially made for modders as everything is unpacked and it features elements from the dev build.

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

It sure does :) Though only in-game - the soundtrack doesn't come with it.
