Ok well i updated all my driverse and everything for XP, then when i started the game stuff went wrong... it wouldnt let me use the left mouse button to click on n e thing, instead it made me use the right. then it went to a loading screen and came up with a message that said "BAD UI SYSTEM 179" i was just wondering if n e 1 knows how to fixs that or what it might mean???:confused: :confused: :fistpunch:
My experiences are, some how, when I installed new patches (ie. 1.02 to 1.03) and then used the console (SHIFT + tilde ) it would still say version 1.02. Something to do with the windows registry I think. I re-installed mine ( after 'auto' uninstall and then maually removing ALL SOF2 folders, including the main. The re-install SOF2 and get the gold patch ( full patch from V 1.0 - 1.03 this will skip a step and reduce time and confusion ). If that doesnt work I dony know what to say but "GOOD LUCK". I have also had this problem when I did some HD cleaning and didnt bother to really pay attention to what I was deleting. I think that UI stands for 'user interface'. If you look around in your SOF2 folder and open some pak. files you will see 'UI' files. When you view some of them you will see graphics that look like the in game menus and buttons for options and such.
Good Luck H2So4 ( Sulfuric ACID --- ouch )
