hi all, is there any way to update Heavy Metal FAKK2 (like a reg fix or something)? the update always tells me that the update cant find the HMF2 installation.

also can someone direct me to a no CD patch for Resident Evil that also plays the movies? i cant find one, megagames and gamecopyworld dont have it as far as i know.

thanks in advance.

Maybe you've just placed the Resident Evil Movies in a wrong directory. I think there should be no crack needed to play em.

PS: Always read the NFOs carefully ;)

ive read all the nfos i can get a lot of times (though i guess ill just have to retry). also, i didnt download RE as i already have the CD of it. there are no nfos in the movies addon briefcases and the nfo in the main game download do not mention anything about the movies.

Actually, I think Xeon is looking for a new NOCD patch, since the one he has works, but does not playback the movies. I'm guessing the movies are on the CD and the NoCD removed every reference to the CD itself, whereas the ideal (new) NoCD crack would only skip the copy protection but still use the CD for movies.

Ah, I see.
So there might just has to be done a little fix in the registry to point on a movies dir on the hdd. Or an ini-file?!

InsaneFury got it exactly. unfortunately, there arent any files that can be altered to change the games references (there are settings in the registry but nothing about the movies)

3dsl has a movie addon so im certain theres a noCD patch that offers the functionality as well. the movie addon is perfectly senseless if it cant be played right?

also..any clues about my Heavy Metal problem?

About Resident Evil, are you running the 3DSL rip, or are you trying to run the ISO version?

As for Heavy Metal FAKK, I think the only way to get the update is by installing the iso and patching that one up.

Perhaps someone who has the iso can patch up his version, then send the updated files over to the 3DSL site?

about RE1: the only noCD crack which plays movies is for the US version of the game.


maybe your version is different? (UK, german maybe?)
you recognice it on the main data dir on your cd. it says either "USA" or "GER"...

perhaps getting the cracked exe from MG and hex editing e.g. the "USA" to "GER" etc may help...

judging by the volume label, it is Asian (RE_ASIA) but the contents should be from a US release (judging by the "horr/usa" folder).

the cracked exes i found at MG are for GER versions. i understand what you mean but im not sufficient enough to work with hex editors (not that intimidated by it though)

The original HMF2 don`t run under XP and it is impossible to patch it . On NT compatible.com they have all you need: How to make the game work under XP:

1-Download Patch FAKK2_102.EXE (2,86MB)
<a href='http://www.take2.com/downloads/..' target='_blank'>http://www.take2.com/downloads/..</a>.

2-DEinstall "Heavy Metal FAKK2" (if you already tried to install)

3-Unzip the patch file (FAKK2_102.EXE) with WinZip to a temp folder

4-replace the file "SETUP.INX" with the file of the same name from the install directory on the CD

5-start the unpacked patch [setup.exe]

6-make a backup of the now installed files & folders in the game directory

7-deinstall "Heavy Metal Fakk2" using control panel -> software

8-install "Heavy Metal Fakk2" using the original CD

9-put the backup files back in the game directory (overwrite)

10-go play the game. Julie's already waiting ...


This workes with my original havy metal fake2

Best thing is to grab the rip plus music addon... it's the easiest way and worked without any modifications very fine for me :lol:

@deadmeat: if you have the time can you just send me the exe alone? thats all i needed in the first place. downloading the rip doesnt make sense to me since i already have the game and im on 56k :(
