Hello, thank you Demo for this.
It doesn't work with my resolution, 2560x1440. The launcher detects 2048x1152 and it works fine, but if I try to change it the game doesn't start.
The xinput support works very well with my xbox one controller.

unfortunately nothing beyond 2048x2048 will work, i guess it's directdraw limit.

do you use th2patchlauncher.exe? if you do, try to relaunch it several times.


I use it every time. I made a shortcut for it as well. I've been playing the game quite a bit, so you could say it's been relaunched many times.

okay then do this: open your thawk2.exe in hex editor jump to 0x00121168 and write "patch/tracklist.ini" + 00 in the end, so it looks like this:

due to the way this patch works, there is a chance it won't sync at startup and some data will be replaced by default values. I rarely get this bug too, but usually on the second launch it's fine.

New issue. When I finish the game (end of Bullring), it plays the video and when I try to save my career the game crashes. The log shows the following error.

Hey I'm trying to get this working on an old XP machine. 1.6 GHz Pentium 4 with a Geforce FX 5900 XT.


Trying to run the launcher but when THawk2.exe opens I get this error:

Tried reinstalling ,NET 4 and VC 2010 but with no luck. Any help?

does it crash after you press yes on save game screen? or when it plays the second video awarded for 3 golds?

old hardware you got there.

check if you got the correct dll.
proceed to c:\windows\system32
find msvcp100.dll there
open it in hex and search for this text you got in the message (basically, a function name)
?sgetc@?$basic_streambuf@DU?$char_traits@D@std@@@std@@QEAAHXZ

if it's not there, make sure you installed the correct redistributable, else i have no idea.

you can simply rename dinput.dll in game folder, so you can run the game at the cost of losing some functionality like sountrack options and additional skaters.

It happened last when I tried to save I think.

I tried it again. It failed after the movie when the game tried to continue on. Didn't get to a save dialog. Here's the relevant log:

Hey crew!
Thanks for that mod-patch, it's really great! That's a pity - looks like all of the work is discontinnued ;(
For example, why does cumulative patch requires other patch to be installed before? also, it's just working wrong, cuz it ask for but don't see it with it's filename.
I've decided to appear here because I'd like to help, because I stumbled on a bug immediately - it's not showing any menu wheel, still works thou.

Use a low resolution of 800x600 to have the partial wheel.

Yep. The original 640x480 only one that has the wheel.. so, meh, I would say it's the error definition rather than a solution :|
Does everyone get the bug?

Everybody have the bug, also if I'm not wrong, the thps2 mac port seems to switch resolution when you go or get out of the wheel menu.
I think the main could be fixed by that way.

pc port does that too. originally menu always renders in 640x480, hence it has to switch video mode every time you start the game and go back to menu. on certain systems it would actually crash the game, so I simply forced it to render in user chosen resolution from the beginning.

i guess their function that draws menu elements has some either memory or dimensions limits and simply skips drawing when exceeded. you can notice it happens with some other elements too on higher resolutions, like skater frame in career mode.
