    Guide to solve problems in Nightmare House 2

    Please read my PDF-Dokument before trying any of the below fixes/workarounds. The guide is based of fix/workaround #3 but also with some ideas from PlainNSimple. You can find the PDF/Guide here: http://www.leemann.se/fredrik/guider/workarounds-nightmarehouse2-2014-09-09.pdf If you attempt one of the fixes than stick to that one.Do not try fix #1 and then right after fix #2 Please reinstall the game in between, that way you have a fresh copy of the game for every fix =) Fix/workaround: #1 After several tests, I managed to get Nightmare House 2 work. I have played the entire game without it crashing once. This fixes worked for me but I won't take any responsibility that it will work for you. I had those problems: 1. Unable to load surface prop file Scripts/Surfaceproperties_ep2.txt 2. Models and Materials were missing and displayed as error signs in game 3. The game crashes when I got the pistol and also at the end when I was fighting DR.Romero I have those games and Tools: Source SDK Base 2007 Half-Life 2: Episode Two Half-Life 2: Episode One Half-Life 2 The only games/tools I think you need are: Source SDK Base 2007 and Half-Life 2: Episode Two This is what I did: Download GCFScape from Nem´s Tools: http://nemesis.thewavelength.net/index.php?p=26 Open the tool and klick File - > Open. A new window will open, go to: SteamApps\common\Half-Life 2\ep2 Dubbleklick on the file named "ep2_pak_dir.vpk" We will need to copy some of those folders to NH2 Right klick on those 5 folders and extract them to your Desktop: (Rightklick one folder at a time, klick on Extract -> chose location Desktop and press OK) - sound - scripts - particles - models - materials Now cut and paste those 5 folders from your Desktop to steamapps\sourcemods\NH2 You will get two questions. THIS IS IMPORTANT SO READ THIS PART =) First question - confirm replacement of folders: Replace the folders, thick DO THIS FOR ALL OBJECTS and klick YES Second question - move File: thick DO THIS FOR ALL OBJECTS, klick on Don´t Move After it´s done you can delete the folders on your desktop... This fixed four problems for me, if fixed: Surfaceproperties_ep2.txt, models and materials, the second game crash. Edit Gameinfo.txt to solve the first crash. Gameinfo.txt is located in: steamapps\sourcemods\NH2 My gameinfo file is here. You can copy it and paste it in yours. I also attached it as a file that you can download: "GameInfo" { // This is what shows up in the 'Third Party Games' area of the Steam games list. game "Nightmare House 2" icon "resource/nh2" title "Nightmare House 2" developer "Hen Mazolski" developer_url "http://wecreatestuff.com" type singleplayer_only FileSystem { SteamAppId 218 // Source SDK Base 2007 ToolsAppId 211 // Source SDK AdditionalContentId 420 // Half-Life 2: Episode Two SearchPaths { Game |gameinfo_path|. Game |all_source_engine_paths|sourcetest Game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2 Game |all_source_engine_paths|ep2 Game |all_source_engine_paths|episodic } } } I still get those error messages but the game seames to work now: No caption found for 'default.scraperough' No caption found for 'flesh.scraperough' scenes/Expressions/citizen_normal_idle_01.vcd missing from scenes.image Updating physics on object in hierarchy prop_vehicle_prisoner_pod! If you know what this is or if my fixes worked for you please share this post and comment =) gameinfo.txt
