Stronghold 2, v1.3.1

Recommended Posts

After updating my Stronghold 2 game from v1.3 to v1.3.1 the game fails to launch. Instead, I see the "working" mouse cursor and then it disappears, looking in task manager, no process of SH2 even launches, so it isn't a crash.

 

I tried reinstalling the game completely, to no prevail. I have updated versions of Direct X and I'm running windows 7. I never had this trouble on my laptop however, I do recall going straight from v1.3 to 1.4 on my laptop, so I never even tried v1.3.1.

 

I need to be able to use v1.3.1 for a project for SH2.

 

My PC Specs:

AMD FX-6350 Six-Core Processor (3.9GHz)

8GB DDR3 RAM

64 bit OS

1TB HDD (787GB free)

GTX 960

 

 

All help appreciated,

Thank you!

Moved to Stronghold 2.

 

What version did your game originally install? And where are you getting the 1.3.1 patch from?

My bad, I thought of posting it here but I was unsure :P

 

 

The disc is v1.3D (assuming the D is deluxe). I've tried the patch from a few websites, all are the same files and size, each with the same installer.

The 1.3 Deluxe is 1.3.1. :)

I admit it's not exactly clear, the deluxe version of the game has 1.3.1 update in by default, along with all the new features only in the deluxe version.

 

When you said patching up, I assumed you had an earlier version on your disk that would have likely caused problems, which is why I wanted to double check.

 

If you did have an earlier version, then you wouldn't have had the deluxe. It's essentially another name - just like Stronghold 3 gold which has all the updates in prior.

      I was recently playing Stronghold Crusader 2 after upgrading my hardware and it has made me want to play stronghold crusader even more. Which reminded me of stronghold knights and a lot of their old stronghold content from Stronghold to Stronghold 2. I was wondering if anyone either had any copies of the many skirmish maps for crusader that were once part of SHK before its downfall.  This is a real shot in the dark but i was wanting to use the maps for old nostalgia as well as to store them

      As some of you may know, there are two versions of Stronghold 2: the Standard edition and the Deluxe edition. The standard edition patches to version 1.4.1, however, the Deluxe edition patches to version 1.31; and it requires a special Deluxe patch. The good news is that this patch was included on the DVD disc itself of late releases of this game (I have a late release which includes a 1.31 patch right on the disc; alternatively, the patch can also be downloaded here: https://www.patches-scrolls
