    [Release] Gothic II - Community Patch v2.10

    Hello WoG Community,

    We are pleased to announce the latest incarnation of our G2 Patch. Due to the buggy state of our last release, we decided to scrap the old patch and rewrite this one from the ground up.

    During our rewrite, we removed certain feature addons that transcended the purposes of a patch, and tried to concentrate purely on bugfixing. Due to this, we have decided to remove the Alternative Balancing system from our patch, as it caused several issues, particularly in our latest release, without being truly necessary.

    We have also implemented a workaround for Windows 7-NVidia GPU users suffering from outdoor rendering issues. The option is available in the custom install. You do not need to install it if you are not suffering from the above issues.

    Finally, this will be the last version of our patch. We have no immediate plans to do any more work patching G2, and we are currently debating support for the W7-NV workaround. We thank you for your continued interest and support. And without further ado, download away .

    Best Wishes,

    Korianous

    I am playing G2 NotR with CP v2.0 now.
    If i want to upgrade to v2.10, do i need to start a new game after upgrading,
    or can i continue from my current save-game?

    and did you also fix the conversation problems in the bandit camp?
    What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger!

    It's highly recommended that you do so.

    Should be fixed, yep, since afaik we never had that problem with earlier versions and we started this one from scratch.

    Recommended but what kind of issues are we looking at if it's installed with the old patches?

    I have the 2.0 running with the 1.0a AB running. I couldn't figure out how to install the Elite Orc AI hotfix, so they are broken.

    I've invested quite a bit into clearing everything possible in chapter one and just started chapter three. Would hate to lose that 40ish hours.

    Though thank you very much for your hard work. If it does require a restart I suppose I will wait for some more finalized version for a second play through. The way of the mage is calling my name.

    We recommend you don't do so, but it's your choice. Stuff may not work as intended though, so if something goes wrong, we may not be able to reproduce your errors and such.

    This is the last version, so, about as final as it gets.

    Oh snap. So with the AB gone does that mean that stats go back to the old way? 2:1 after 30?

    Yep. AB was just causing more problems than it was helping. I'm considering working on a new version of HoP, with the updates from the patch, to replace AB (Ironic, as I was considering using AB to replace HoP initially). I'll let you guys know how that goes.

    Sounds good.

    I take it if this patch is installed over what I have that the 1.0a AB will stay put. That way I can have both.

    Unfortunately not, since the AB Gothic.dat will conflict with the .dat of the patch.

    I have some problems with this patch. I installed G2 and NotR and attempted to install the patch. At the end I got an error saying that it couldn't create the uninstaller and it aborted the installation. I attempted to unstall the patch from the Add/Remove Programs control panel which didn't work (not surprisingly). I then attempted to re-run the tool and it just says that it's already installed.

    I uninstalled G2, deleted the directored, rebooted, reinstalled G2 and NotR, rebooted and attempted to install the patch again but it still thinks it's installed and won't let me install it again.

    Fortunately I was smart enough to have made a copy of my G2 directory before I uninstalled anything so I still have the copy that has the ICP installed in it but given the error I originally got is there a way I can verify that the patch was in fact installed?

    And a couple of follow up questions. It's not clear if this is a standalone patch or if I was supposed to install a previous version first. It seems like it's a complete patch but I wanted to double check.

    Also I see the changelog above; is that just for version 2.10 or does that include changes made in all the versions? If not, where might I be able to find the changelogs for earlier releases?

    Yes, it shouldn't require a previous version.

    On the first post you can find the changelog for the previous versions:

    So there is no way to have the best of both worlds?

    Tough decision.

    I don't know if this is all in my head, but the camera seems worse than it used to be. Especially in combat, the hero tends to block my view of the enemy...

    You could just zoom out a bit...

    Also I see the changelog above; is that just for version 2.10 or does that include changes made in all the versions? If not, where might I be able to find the changelogs for earlier releases?
    Only the things listed in the changelog for 2.10 have been implemented, this patch is cleaned up and rewritten from scratch.

    I'm sorry for the retarded question..I've been trying to follow the development of this patch and most important - how to install it.

    So,after all what do I need to successfully install it over my NOTR v2.7(eng)? Wasn't there some other "patch" that turns it to 2.6 or something???Really messed up that part...thanks in advance for any plain explanation!

    Do you have to have NOTR to install this patch? If I have to then I'm a bit screwed because I can't find the game in any of the stores.
