The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay - WORKING

Postby theAntiBob » Mon Sep 09, 2019 9:38 pm


Can't count how many times i've tried this over the years, but finally got Riddick:ButcherBay working. I hear it is a major problem on newer vista/7 systems, and not much info out there about fixing it.

Scaryfuns copy is the 1.0 eu version. install normally, but skip the hoodlum FIXED files
they are v1.0 and useless unless you have an OLD gfx card or some other voodoo <-- get it ? voodoo? 3Dfx pun

apply the official riddick_update_eu_10_11.exe patch
NOT the _en_ US version !!!

Grab a 1.1 FIXED pack, vitality made one, and it works.

Hope someone likes this... but not with their faceboo account, please

they remastered this game for newer OS with an added 1h long extended ending , called "The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena" so patching the original game to make it to work on new OS , is kinda... well , pointless ... why not get this version instead ... they added bump mapping , pixel shader 3.0 effects , real time shadows , better textures then the ones from Xbox 1 ... the other thing they changed from the original game is the Difficulty System ... making it more aggressive , aka instant one shot kill when they find you :lol: still you can finish the whole game in 4h (3h the original Campaign and 1h the Expansion that was called a sequel but many just laughed at its length)
