    Register your game and post this to the Tech Support forum (it will probably be moved there when the mods make their round here, anyway).

    Don't lose your cool. This is a great forum, and there is no point in getting worked up over something pointless. There are two sides to everything.

    You may be better off just re-downloading the game and getting the latest version... as if you are patching 1.02 over 1.01(?).. I think the game has been significantly changed since then, and a patch may not fully do it (I could be wrong?).

    Definitely easier just to re-download, because then, you'll know that it will work and be the most up to date version.

    Hi, cheers.

    Ive been looking at re downloading again. Amazon.com lets you do this, but it wont let me register because of my address . Amazon.co.uk would work, but it doesn't sell the game.
    I originally got it from Gamersgate, but don't feel to happy about paying for it again (or maybe i just should).
    I tried to find the original zip/rar file but i couldnt find it anywhere on my system. Anyone know what the original file is called and where it save to?


    But.... i think you are right about the patches. I haven't used the earlier patches and just gone for patch 1.01.
    Out of interest, game CTD because it struggles to load an old save game, even though im not playing a saved game. I thought that maybe the same game had corrupted so i deleted every same game (stored the files elsewhere) but the same error message came back.

    The error message doesnt happen when i play the lite version though.

    If you log on to Gamersgate, the game should still be there in your list of games. ??

    Hi,
    sorry for the late answer, but what you're saying makes little sense, so please clarify:
    1) Where did you buy the game? Amazon? Gamersgate? With Gamersgate you can download it again for sure, I expect the same from Amazon
    2) The game, at least from Gamersgate, it's not in a zip or rar file
    3) Savegames from patch 1.01 are not compatible with patch 1.02
    4) Where did you obtain the patch from anyway? In which format?

    Is there a way to register the game without it showing up with a DH under your account? The whole game caming in a zip folder is pretty unusual for a non-pirated game...

    Yeah, if you registered your game you'd have an Icon under your Avatar.

    There is no distributor that releases the game as a Zip.

    Hi. I had said that "I originally got it from Gamersgate"
    i also asked "anyone know what the original file is called and where it save to?"
    Sorry if no one could remember what that file was called either.
    I have redownloaded of from Gamersgate

    It wasnt under my Gamersgame account, because my girlfriend had downloaded it as a gift for me, from her own account.
    I have now re downloaded it and am very happy.
    Just now need to get the patches sorted
    Thanks again guys

    The patch should be available from the launcher, but you have to register your game.

    Ask your girlfriend to let you see the CD Key so you can register it. Or, if she gifted it to your GG account, you should have access to it there.

    Try a reinstallation, it should work fine.
