X2 the Threat Priest Rings LFL Mankossack mission bug - Change resolution/fps cap workaround?

Post by AvenoyPrstt » Sat, 20. Feb 21, 01:00

I've read the old threads and i see that there is no solution for this bug in them. On W10, when the Discoverer left the Paranid station and the cutscene starts, the game crashes to desktop. Is there any solution for this?

Try running the game in Win10's XP SP3 compatibility mode. It might help.

I don't have any other suggestions, unfortunately. If you were willing to share your save game, I could give it a try here. I'm running W10, the same as you, so it will probably crash for me too, but you never know.

Yeah I'm stuck here too. There are several threads on this going back several year - first one 2005.

I'm running the GoG game and 1.5.

I have tried unplugging joystick, screen refresh sync, reninstalling game, alternate video cut scenes, compatibility mode, entirely different PC (one Intel nvidia the other AMD) etc etc.

If someone could just move my save on past this I would be extremely happy :)

No idea as the OP never did reply to the suggestions.

Changed resolution to 1024 x 768 and the cutscene after leaving the base worked fine.

I just hit this same bug and, like others, have tried all the usual solutions. Nothing works.

If anyone has a save file from after this point, or can open and fix my file, I'd be grateful

Im gonna necro this simply because this was the first google result i got searching for a solution and it took me some time to figure it out.

All the suggestions with comp mode, resolution etc. did not work for me.

I solved this by limiting the framerate to 60 fps. I had to use the riva tuner statistics server tool (installed by MSI Afterburner) since the nvidia control panel setting would not limit
the fps correctly.

Finally i can continue this childhood favorite of mine.

I hope this will help others.
