    Default What is the best version of the game to have?

    The question kind of in the title, but what version is the best?

    Version 1.3 or 1.7?

    I've managed to get DK2 running on Vista using 1.7 but is version 1.3 better and will it run on vista?

    I've heard that 1.3 has better A.I.

    1.3 because of it's way superior AI, version 1.7 and above AI just blows.

    It doesn't really matter what version you install, they all should work correctly.

    1.3.

    -more stable online games.

    -angrier AI.

    -stable skirmish maps. (no changing availabilities with spells/doors/creatures)

    Drawbacks:

    -no HP's.

    -no elites.

    -no maiden/jack in the box trap.

    -no 1024 res.

    Basically, all drawbacks are nothing to you if you're an oldgamer like me. I don't care for those elites and hi res. I find it more comforting to play a stable map against angry AI, then playing a hi res map with all the features, but with errors, crashes and stupid AI.

    Yeah a problem right now, is that my game keeps on crashing and I just can't get into it and play it. Also I want the AI to be tougher than it is right now and be challenging!

    Sorry about this but one more question. Does patch 1.51 suffer from the ICD problem?

    What do you mean by "icd problem"?

    If you mean that it will need a cd, no, if you have it in your cd drive.

    or if you have it mounted in daemon tools.

    I mean the problem where DK2 crashes and windows comes up and says it crashed because of DK2.icd.

    Nope. never had that on 1.51 patch. 1.51 as 1.3, is one of most stable. The MOST stable, I would say. 1.3 original is good, but still crashes quite a lot. 1.3 cracked is perfect.

    Try the version that is uploaded on the forums. It is the most stable version of DK I have ever had.


    P.S. Strange thing... I have a HP Compaq 8710w laptop with Intel Centrino proc and Nvidia Quadro graphics. Windows XP sp3.

    I dare to assume that this is the best pc to play DK2 =DDD I NEVER crash. I only crash if I rape the game to the extent that I have 5 keepers and goodies fighting in one place with armies of 300 creatures spamming lightnings and fireballs. Then, I might crash once in a while. In a normal, ordinary game - never.

    The ICD problem is related with SafeDisc copy protection. You must remove it to avoid the game to crash constantly.
