Hi all,

I'm experiencing very hard times to make Deus Ex 2 work in my rig. I've installed the european version of the game which already inlcudes the patch 1.2 which was released separately in U.S. and I use a previously created profile. I start the game, all the videos and other stuff play perfectly until i get to the main title screen (the one with the Deus Ex logo spinning in 3D) in which the game freezes and I always have to restart the computer.

I'm using forceware 91.47whql and it happens even if I do not create a specific profile for the game.

What's wrong with it??

Thx.

Hey buddy,

Have you tried updating the game with the latest patch?

Do you have DirectX installed?

it has nothing to do with nvidia, nothing to do with directx etc...

deus ex 2 doesn't work correctly on dual core machines

there are 3 ways around it

1) launch game, quickly alt tab and set affinity to single core.

2) use a program to set affinity before launch, there are few out there.

3) install AMD Dual-Core Optimizer, this will fix the problem.
