First Download dos Box 63

Then get a front like mine D-Fend

Download Alone in the dark 2 install in a folder called Old Games

Then use the Front End to config the game first you put the game .exe
like aitd2.exe
then aitd2crk for set.up
Then confir the file to use ddraw for better graphics.

Hello, I apologise in advance as I don't know if i'm quite doing the right thing, and also if the query has already been answered! I've downloaded AITD2 but I unzip the files and then try to load it - but it just closes down, how can i fix this? x

Use DosBox. Or VDMSound. Whichever works better on your system.
You can get them from our programs page.

You might want to check out the official DosBox FAQ, and particularly this part of it. It is quite helpful for users unfamiliar with DosBox.

[font=Fixedsys][size=7]The copy protection codes for "Alone in the Dark 2" are based on a set of six cards, printed front and back, which dictate what keys (F1 through F10) must be pressed to unlock the copy protection. Each card has six or seven square holes. The first card of the copy protection code is placed over the second card. Count the holes from top to bottom, left to right. For the following example:

Four of Diamonds over King of Spades
Hole Number 6

the holes on the Four of Diamonds are located as follows:

Hole 1 Row 1, Column 5
Hole 2 Row 3, Column 4
Hole 3 Row 4, Column 3
Hole 4 Row 5, Column 1
Hole 5 Row 5, Column 6
Hole 6 Row 6, Column 4

When the Four of Diamonds is placed over the King of Spades, an Orange Diamond is seen through Hole Number 6. The card suit (Spades, Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs) and color correspond to keyboard inputs (keys F1 through F10). The key corresponding to the card suit is pressed first, then the key (or keys) corresponding to the color is pressed. The keys and corresponding values are as follows:

F1 Spades
F2 Hearts
F3 Diamonds
F4 Clubs

F5+F10 Red
F6 Yellow
F7 Green
F8 Blue
F9 Violet
F10 Orange
F11 ---
F12 ---

To unlock the copy protection code given above as an example, press F3 (Diamonds) and F10 (Orange).

The game's copy protection can be bypassed by using the crack provided with the download. The following batch file (AITD2.BAT) runs the crack, then runs the game's main executable file.

@ECHO OFF
AITD2CRK.COM
AITD2.EXE

To run the above batch file, you must first go to the folder (directory) containing the game files. The following batch file runs the game from the hard disk's root directory. I have stored the game files in the folder: C:\Program Files\AITD2. Change Line 2, if necessary, to target the folder where your game files are located.

@ECHO OFF
CD C:\PROGRA~1\AITD2
AITD2CRK.COM
AITD2.EXE

I prefer not using the game crack, because I have experienced problems with my video display when using it. Instead, I unlock the copy protection codes manually, using the procedure I have described. Also, I do not recommend using the game trainer that is available from some download sites. It is better to use a hex editor to boost health, ammo, etc.

A very good freeware hex editor is XVI32 Hex Editor by Christian Maas. Edit SAVE0.ITD, entering CA for the following hex addresses:

5E28 Thompson Ammo
5E38 Carnby's Health

These will give 255 of each item, making it much easier to get started in the game, which has been criticized for its high level of difficulty. Values for other inventory items can also be edited, including Grace's health points.

My English copy of the game freezes when Carnby enters the sorceress' bedroom. My French copy of the game freezes when Grace is at the top of the ladder and is about to go on the deck of the pirate ship. The same is true if I run the game under MS-DOS 6.22 or inside an MS-DOS window under Windows 98. Music is disabled in my English copy, but is active in my French copy. The game is much better with music.

I have made copies of the copy protection cards, which can be printed on a single sheet of paper. I will try to make them available on this website, or I can e-mail them to those who are interested.

Aahh the memories... nostalgia... all for a game Brilliant game. Only that part with a girl is a fable-like, but I liked it back in '96 or 97.

I'm sorry folks, but posting e-mail adresses in open text is not permitted on this forum. If you want to ask Metuselah for that copy protection card, please register and use the PM function to tell him your e-mail adress.

Compared with the first one, this game is very disappointing. It's still a nice game, but just that. The first AitD was one of the most genious games ever.
