Hi biffa, sorry for the problem.
Did you see the notes? (Release notes)
Note1: this update will bring *any* previous version up to 2.10. You do not need any previous patches at all.
Note2: You will need the latest DirectX to run 2.10.
[/b]You will get a missing .dll error if you do not. When you run the 2.10 self-installer it will point you to the Microsoft DirectX update page. Update to DirectX9.0c (June version). Unfortunately, there are multiple versions of 9.0c so if in any doubt, update.
Note3: The MultiSkin
patch should go ON TOP OF
Battle of Britain 2: Wings of Victory v2.10 Patch (English)
OR Battle of Britain 2: Wings of Victory v2.10 Patch (International)
You should have a 256M gfx card to be sure to run without issues. Note4: How to back up your existing settings from earlier BoBII updates.
Buddye's installation guide HERE-> http://www.a2asimulations.com/forum/vie ... 0&t=19368B
Back up your Bdg.txt and \savegame, \2dGauge, and \keyboard folders (these folders contain all your settings and joystick buttons) Note5: If you have a low end system and experience a crash once into 3D
, go to your bdg.txt file and set LANDSCAPE_TEXTURE_SIZE = 1024
(the default is 2048). This will reduce the landscape texture resolution by a factor of 4 and should help users with low system memory.Note6: Windows Vista users.
All Vista users will need to apply the 'Vista fix' to your desktop shortcut as a 2.10 overwrites previous shortcuts.
Right click on shortcut and go to properties. Go to the compatibility tab. Check "disable desktop composition" and check the privilege level, run this program as an administrator.
Did you try "Note 5"?
LANDSCAPE_TEXTURE_SIZE = 1024
Also set the following as your video card is a bit weak for multi skin, IMHO.
The BOBII version 2.10 performance requirements with all the new skins, objects, AI, and effects have increased. See the following link for some tuning tips:viewtopic.php?f=17&t=10091
This should get you going on 2.10 if you want to give it a try.
