  • Aiiiiiieeeeee! (or: I just got system shock II)

    Not sure why, but I just decided to get System Shock II and give it a try. I remember it got great ratings and was made by LGS.

    I did the training and i'm into the first mission a little bit...had to take a break to settle my nerves. This game has some real good atmosphere...

    Was wondering if any of you knew where I could go to play it online...if such a place exists anymore.

        Oh, don't forget to get the texture patch ( http://texturemod.wz.cz/ ) and rebirth
        patch ( http://perso.wanadoo.fr/etienne.aube...ck_rebirth.htm ). These should help you on your way.

          SS2 is one of the greatest games on the planet!!!

          What operating system do you run it on Garlisk... I cant run it in XP, it crashes for some unknown error, otherwise I'd setup a game for us to coop in...

            I'm running it Win ME.

            How does MPlayer work in SSII?

              Coop was added in the patch.

              It's great fun over a LAN, but if your going over internet you need to know IP of other players... And ye be warned. It's a bit buggy and unstable.

                Not sure exactly how it works.... me and Mach once tried it unsuccessfully over a LAN, so I was hoping you knew.

                Nevermind anyway... SS2 doesnt work in XP and I aint changing my OS just for that anytime soon.... :grin:

                  System shock 2 does work in XP.
                  You need to install it with the same parameter as in Thief.

                      the only problem SS2 had on my XP-System was some screwed EAX-Sound and a incompatibility to my graphics accelerator which made it impossible to interact with the inventory ingame

                        For those of you with a hyperthreading processor, see here.

                        Microwave missed the high poly weapon mod and the other texture mod.

                          There's also a expert difficulty multiplayer patch thing, so that you can play multiplayer at the highest difficulty level (rather than second highest). You can get it from me: http://immortius.actewagl.net.au/sho...difficulty.zip

                          If you do play multiplayer, I suggest frequent saves using all the slots in a cycle. Occasionally I would get a problem where one person's version of the saved game would just quit them back to the desktop, and we had to revert to the last area (all saves from the current area had the same effect). Which was annoying. The game also can be a little silly at times (hey look, our eyes are at chest level! :lol.

                              Look in the bargain bins at EB, CompUSA, or BestBuy. I've seen a few hiding there fairly recently.
