Starting NOLF2 in Windows 10 fails


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have successfully installed NOLF2 on my Windows 10 desktop.

The desktop PC has no optical drives therefore I put the original CDs in an ISO file, emulated the CD drive with WinCDEmu and launched the installer.

There were no errors during installation.

Then I installed nolf_update_1.3 (for my language de).

 

However, the game is not starting.

I read here that this is related to games copy protection:
"Due to security related changes in Windows 10, you may find that No One Lives Forever 2 will not start on Windows 10 machines. To get around this, unfortunately it is necessary to disable the games copy protection."

 

Can you please advise how to fix this issue?

German version NOLF2 and German patch 1.3 contain censorship restrictions ...

Unfortunately, the official German version of NOLF2 has bugs:
1. Blood is turned off in combat scenes.
2. There are 43 sound wav-files missing in the voice acting.
Use the patch (fix) Nolf2_GUI_1_16.zip (35.8 Mb). It contains "No-CD" and removes censorship in the German version.
This fix is only installed on version 1.3
Screenshots after applying the Fix  Nolf2_GUI_1_16 for German version:

To play the uncensored German version Nolf2:
1. Install the US official version NOLF2.

2. To restart a computer.
3. Install US or English official patch 1.3
4. Unzip and  Install the patch Nolf2_GUI_1_16.zip, select the German language, link:

5. Copy and replace the SOUND.REZ file (German voice acting) into the game folder, link:

Hi, Check "needed files" under Nolf2 in the download section at this website.

----

I also recommend downloading the Nolf2 Modernizer beta to run the game better in windows 10. There are a bunch of bugs that are fixed in this patch.

(The ingame server query is also fixed, just waiting for a new dedicated server app)

Where can I get US official version of NOLF2?

If you have the official German version of Nolf2, then you do not need to additionally download the German voice acting.
Install the German version of Nolf2, then open the game folder and save the SOUND.REZ (German game voice) file in your archive.
Then uninstall the German version of Nolf2 and install the US or English version of Nolf2 from one of these 5 links:
Official Nolf2 USA, 2 CDs:

Then  replace the SOUND.REZ file (German voice acting for the game) into the game folder,  Install US or English official patch 1.3, then Unzip and Install the patch Nolf2_GUI_1_16.zip, select the German language

***

The French version of Nolf2 also has no censorship restrictions.
You can install the official French version instead of US and then replace the voice acting and interface with German.
