    Hello i have download resident evil 2 but when i run the game it give me :Resident evil 2 “ver0.981021” common /Datu/gwarning.adt I cant run the game please neeed heeelp ASAP

    • I never heard of a error message with version number in it. My advice, get a real official copy, no illegal stuff. ;) may it works then with real cds.

    Hmmm, I have an HP laptop with windows 7 and a 64 bit operating system and the only problem with the game that I have noticed so far is that the game will unexpectedly stop working and I have to close it. I have no patch downloaded yet and I have also been able to save and load my game with no troubles at all.

    I run windows 8 core, and whenever I run the batch file for the patch- no rhyme intended- I get the game running when in fullscreen and windowed, but the movies will not show. I have copied over all the movies from each disc, including the ones in the zmovie folder outside of the pl0/pl1 folders. Please help, everything else works fine, it’s just those movies that don’t work, all I get is a black screen, the audio is still there.

    • I have no solution for you. I guess it got to do with directx. The discs come with a very old directx version, try run it in XP mode and install this directx version there. To be honest, I have no idea what video format the movies have. Try to run the movies in VLC media player and check the codec that is needed to see the films and try to find and install those. And, I have no experience with Windows8. That’s the least I can do for you. Please write back once you know your solution. Thank you!

        I have opened the titlele.bin and titlece.bin in vlc media player. they play correctly. it might be directx, but could also be the no cd I’m using with 1.04. I might revert back to 1.00 and go from that. I’ll do so and tell you if that helps.

        News on my game: It is now fixed. I might as well post this for other windows 8 users so they don’t have the same problem as me. It is not the cracks, it’s running it in fullscreen that makes it show the black screen. So, here’s what you do to fix this:

        1. BEFORE installing the patch, open residentevil2.exe from either the leon or claire disc.
        2. Change your video mode to Voodoo Banshee, running on either 320×240 or 640×480 windowed mode.
        3. Apply patch

        Fixed! Now I can bask in its 1999, zombie epicness and glory! :3

    I have a problem to start wanting to play on a PC with Windows 7, I get a message that says:

    “FAILED TO INITIALIZE DIRECTX”

    The corrupt savegame prob. can be solved by using a fat32 formatted usb stick as the save game directory.

    • So the file table seems to be the problem then? I should have known it, NTFS and it’s user-right management bullshit, screwed up the savegames then.
      Well, how much percent is your hint true? Tested it?
      Maybe I gonna put it into the FAQ.

    You can also get the Biohazard 2 (sourcenext) which is a Japanese released version .
    It has support for modern systems.
    Someone made an english patch for it .(it was only in japan)
    Google is your friend.

  7. ray says:

    (it was only in japan) means it was only released in japan.
