    I read somewhere that this game has a bug where it formats your hard drive? If it's true how do you do it? might make my next reinstall of windows easier :roll:

    IIRC this is the bug in the uninstaller of the original, unpatched version that happens if you installed the game anywhere but in the default location and then tried to uninstall it.

    Do you need to install ALL the patches or is the most recent patch, version 1.4, all you need?

    Most companies build on to pervious patches (requiring only the most recent to be installed), but reading various posts it does not appear to be the case with PoR.

    You need all of them in the case of PoR. That's why they're all listed on SP.

    iirc if you have version 1.2 you only need 1.4 patch .. if you have the original release 1.0 you need to do 1.1 then 1.4

    so everything is alright when installing the game, but everything might get deleted if you un-install it?

    [​IMG] No, only if you install the game in a directory that isn't the default offered one, and then try to uninstall it without applying the patch first.

    The patch that fixes it (and the next three) are listed at http://www.sorcerers.net/Games/PoR2/index_misc.php
