Basically install it, patched it and then replaced the cinematics from the original install with the "aquired" version.

The "abandonware" version of the game that can be found various places has re-encoded videos so that they work on modern computers. I know the game technically isnt "abandoned" but seeing how most people cant even play the original (or even buy it), I think its acceptable to go the Torrent route to enjoy a classic game.

I don't agree with CaptNKill, even though I had to use a part of the "aquired" version. I own the original and once I got it working I deleted the files. I have uploaded everything you need to this rar file. There are no cracks or illegal files within it. Share it with anyone who actual owns the game and wants to play it on a modern rig.

eBay is pretty much the only way to go to purchase out of print games... or you can get it overpriced from amazon marketplace.

Sometimes Amazon prices aren't too bad for that, but it varies wildly depending on the game.

I know, I usually get games and music from amazon marketplace but if its an old out of print game that is considered a "classic", the price is always close to what it was when the game was new (some times higher). IMO, spending that much just to play the game 10 years later isnt really necessary seeing how the developers and publishers (if they even still exist) havent been getting money from the game for years.

If you want the box, CD and manual for collecting purposes, you have to pay a premium. There are bare CDs and jewel case copies of SS2 on ebay for far less than that though.

I saw one auction on there that had SS2 in the original box (not the "classics" box with the gold on it) still sealed from the store... it was really expensive too.

I'm going to try to pick up a boxed copy of SS2 to stick on my shelf, but only if I can get it for a decent price. Theres no way I'm going to blow $50+ on it just to fill the pockets of some guy who probably burned a copy of it for himself.
