Just wanted to ask if anyone knew what glitches affect C2 (both uk and us editions, im going to get the sold out C2 + C3:TDR2000 double pack) on windows vista (business edition but I dont think tht part matters) and if anyone can explain said glitches, if any exist? (also recomended patches) thnx Ouroboros Omega 00:27, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

Carmageddon II works almost fully well in Vista. The only problem is that the sound doesn't play. At the moment, there are no known patches to fix that. The best thing you could do is to play some music in the background using a media player. There is also another smaller issue, that happens in any operating system above Windows 98. If you plug in a controller and start the game, it'll crash. We even added that as a fun fact (Carmageddon Wiki:Did you know/4, 3rd fact). I'm not sure about a 3rd glitch: if you open the map, the cars will always show up as black arrows, wasted or not. Although that could have just been in my computer. As for Carmageddon TDR 2000, I'm guessing it runs without a problem. Other glitches, that happen in the games themselves, can be found here: Category:Glitches. {EspyoT} 13:03, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the help. I heard about a patch called the xp patch (a.k.a the xp-vista patch) that clears up the sound problems on C2, it is mentioned in the patches guide in the article and can be found on the SCI patches page (also in the article). Do ya know if it works? Ouroboros Omega 14:53, August 25, 2010 (UTC)
