Re: BOB2 WINDOWS 10 PATCH (RELEASED)

Post TheLoaf »

Hopefully someone can help me.

I have done the following:
1. Downloaded 2.06 from A2A
2. Installed it into the default directory
3. It seems like it could not find the correct directx from microsoft and gave me an error about spamming in my browser?
4. Installed the 2.01 patch
5. Installed the Windows 10 patch from moddb
6. Copied over the 9 folders and allowed them to overwrite the files present
7. Set game to Windows XP Pack 2 AND 3.
8. Run bob.exe

After this, I see a white splash screen with a grey line about 1/3rd of the way up. Then the game goes away right to the desktop.

Any ideas?

Hi TheLoaf, if you are using 2.06 version you will need also the 2.06 fix I uploaded here:

DOWNLOAD LINK: https://www.mediafire.com/file/g4ud7xcz ... n.rar/file

Inside the file there is a Read Me file, read it carefully since you have to follow the exactly installation order

If you followed all steps check if you installed DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010). At the end of BOB2 WINDOWS 10 PATCH installation a window will open and ask you to Install it since it's needed for BOB2 works on Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10. The DirectX from 2.06 doesn't work but the one in BOB2 WINDOWS 10 PATCH works ;)

p.s: If your desktop resolution is not allowed for the game, enter inside your game folder and open in Notepad the file "bdg.txt" and change the line:

USE_DESKTOP_RESOLUTION=ON

To:

USE_DESKTOP_RESOLUTION=OFF

Save the file and test the game again
