Since there is a procedure that already works then I won't waste anymore time on it.

Oh well off to translating!

Then again maybe I will waste more time on it!

I can check it out, although to be honest it's already a pretty simple process to downgrade your Steam copy. You can even use the official patcher if you do a little reg-editing. I just keep a copy of the different files between 1.0004/1.0005 and overwrite as needed.

The bit I'm struggling with is the no intro for it. Like said downgrading Steams no longer an issue, One fella on Moddb reckoned he'd figured it out so I asked how and haven't heard anything since, so I don't think he did as it's been days.

If you have a way to do that it would be great as there's a lot of Steam users who want to try ST2 at Moddb.

Have a read of this for Steam downgrading.

EDIT
I just checked and Id got a reply:


EDIT

I just tried and it is easy to do,

Don't use your desktop shortcut.

Log in to Steam,

Right click on the game in your Steam library,

Then choose properties, and then choose launch options,

Then you get a box where you can add the -no intro like you would with your desktop shortcut.

Basically we can play ST2 on Steam now. I'll have to write out how and post it on mod db. I've had tonnes of mail asking over the last 6 months. I must be more careful or else they'll all realise I'm dumb as shit

Not using STEAM, but I ran ST2 on 1.0005 and the PDA was messed up, texture wise. The game worked fine, but I did not continue as 1.0005, I reinstalled and got 1.0004 in fear of other bugs.

I play it on a dvd copy so I use 1,0004, I'm set up with 3 versions of SOC, 2 via a dvd copy (also 1,0006) and a Steam copy 1,0005, so I haven't needed to downgrade Steam myself, I was getting lot's of people asking about it at Moddb though because I've got your links up for the mod.

I had tried ST2 with v1.0005 and ended up crashing later in the mod.

Well, like I said, I didn't go far without 1.0004. Got the Mandrake Root and the quest didn't update. Checked the guide, the boars didn't spawn. So I reinstalled and got 1.0004.
