About this FAQ:
This game was released for very old Windows operating systems
and many errors show up while trying to run it on Windows
systems above Win9x. This FAQ explains how to install and run
Resident Evil 2 PC on a modern Windows operating system.

---------------|
Facts about the PC-Version:
- It includes a Extreme Battle Mode with Ada Wong and Chris
Redfield as playable characters. You need at least to complete
the Hard Mode once.
- The PC port features an extra menu and automatically adds
new content to it when the player encounters things while
playing through the scenarios.
This makes the PC port the most advanced one ever releases
of this game.
- The Extra Menu on the CD-ROM for Leon features:
. A Gallery with Rough Sketches.
. A Movie Viewer to watch all animated cut scenes.
- The Extra Menu on the CD-ROM for Claire features:
. A Gallery with Illustrations.
. A Movie Viewer to watch all animated cut scenes.
. A Model Viewer to watch all character and monster models.

---------------|
Playing the Game:
- The game itself does not need to be installed on your hard disk
drive and runs perfectly from the cd-roms.
- The corrupt savegame problem can be solved by using a fat32
formatted USB flash drive as the save game directory.
- Select the Voodoo Banshee (The greatest graphics card from the
90s!) with 320x240 16bitColour Fullscreen or else you will see
the game running in a tiny picture in the middle of a black
screen. This also allows you to capture footage with the screen
recorder FRAPS.
- If you still have problems to run the game, then switch
through the graphic drivers inside the driver selection screen
until it works for you.

---------------|
Official Patch v.1.4 Notes:
- You only need to install the game if you want to apply this
patch.
- The Patch 1.4 adds a new graphics driver to the driver
selection screen.
- The Patch 1.4 automatically unlocks the extreme battle mode
together with Ada and Chris as playable characters. No need to
complete the hard mode first.
- The Patch 1.4 does not fix the corrupt savegame problem.

---------------|
Install the game:
- Insert disk 1 for Leon and install the game.
- Insert disk 2 for Claire and install the game again.

---------------|
Apply patch:
- Copy files from the .zip into the installation folder.
- Run leonu.bat for playing leon 1.4.
- Run clairu.bat for playing claire 1.4.
- Never run the game from the autostart menu.
- Always start the game with these two executables to play with
the update.

---------------|
Corrupt Savegame Fix:
- Savegames cant be written on a ntfs formatted hard disc,
but not loaded.
- To solve the corrupt savegame problem use a fat32
formatted USB flash drive as the savegame folder.
---------------|
File Open Error Fix:
- Inside the installation folder rename:
common/datp -> common/datu
Pl0/rdp -> Pl0/rdu
Pl1/rdp -> Pl1/rdu

---------------|
German Uncut Patch:
- I own the US PC version, but I am still searching for the
german blood patch to change the blood color from green to
red. Post a comment at the bottom of this post if you still
own it and want to share it with me.
