Support for Soul Reaver 2
Q: I have found a patch version 1.02 on the internet for Soul Reaver 2. Should I install it?
A: The Sold Out version of Soul Reaver 2 is already patched to version 1.02, so you do not need to download or install this patch.
Q: How can I skip the in-game movies?
A: The movies cannot be skipped.
Q: I receive a "xxxxxx.xxx not found" error message when installing or running Soul Reaver 2. What's going on?
A: This error message is usually the result of your computer using MS-DOS (16 bit) drivers instead of Windows (32 bit) drivers for your CD-ROM drive. You can easily check to see if this is causing problems by opening the Control Panel (either click on the My Computer icon or click on the Start button followed by Settings, then Control Panel).
In the Control Panel window, double-click on the System icon then click on the Performance tab. You should now see a summary of the performance status of your computer. One of the lines should say "File System: 32-bit" and the last line should say "Your system is configured for optimal performance." If you see a message saying "Drive X is using MS-DOS compatibility mode," then you will need to contact your system vendor to obtain and install 32-bit drivers for your CD-ROM drive.

Q: Soul Reaver 2 is crashing to the desktop with no error messages.
A: This problem can be caused by several different things. Here's a list of the most common culprits associated with these crashes:
Note that if your system crashes to the desktop while playing Soul Reaver 2, you should probably reboot your computer before starting a new play session. Otherwise, DirectDraw or DirectSound may be in a locked state, and the game will be unable to use your sound or video hardware.
If you are running this title under or near the minimum system specifications, we highly recommend that you set your display settings within the game to a lower level.
While the game will run fine in 128 Mb of RAM, your playing experience will be smoother if you have at least 256 Mb.
Regardless of how much memory you have, you can maximize your available memory and increase the overall performance of the game engine by doing the following:
Closing any open windows
We recommend that you have no other programs running at all while playing Soul Reaver 2. Other programs, including virus checkers, system utilities and screen savers can cause system degradation when playing games software and may conflict with the game for system resources, potentially resulting in instability and crashes.
