GTR 2 server (incompatable game versions)
« on: January 03, 2007, 01:51:11 pm »
I am using version 1.0 because the patch completely disables my game even when installing it to a clean gtr2 installation. Does this mean I wont be able to use GTR 2 online on most servers?

i would imagine so most server will more than lightly be updated by now as ours is

I've not heard of any body having problems with the update so far can you elaborate a little on what the problem is so we can possibly help you get it sorted  ;)

After installing the patch for the first time, I tried to play the game but got a "gtr 2 encountered error and will now close" when I try to load the game. Once this happened I completely re-installed the game and removed all addons. I re-installed the patch and I get the same error. I tried this with both patch versions and get the same crap. It doesnt look like I can play this online anymore because of a faulty update.

did you download the patch from the official GTR2 site?  http://gtr-game.10tacle.com/index.php?id=246&L=1 thats  were i got the patch from and it has installed perfect on both my machine and the dedicated server so i can't see it being a faulty update.

No upgrade problems here, or indeed with any of the folk playing on line last night.
Sometimes installing into a different location can help, as can manually removing any references from the registry before re-install.

are you using the cracked cd exe... if so that launches the game as v1.0, and has other problems of incompatibility with itself (if that makes any sense... something i also struggle with... no you don't... ah don't start ya tosser... oh right, big man over here, have one of these... ouch!, i'm calling the police!)

Did You download the right patch?  I know there three options depending on where you got your game.

I got rid of all addons and tried all 3 update versions and none of em work. I used a new installation for each attempt.

When you update to 1.1 does it play in single player mode OK?
i.e. is your problem only related to playing on-line?

With all 3 patches, I click on the shortcut and the game closes immediately. With the WE and US patches I get the "encountered an error and will now close". With the DD patch I get no error but the game doesnt load at all. With 1.0 version and all my addons I get no problems. I say if it aint broke dont fix it. I have just emailed tech support to see what they suggest. Thanks for the replies too.

Don't hold yer breath! 

I too have issues loading from shortcuts etc... try launching direct from the game folder .exe; i think there is a bug... what... in a simbin game... no way!
