Soul Reaver 2 Menu Screen Flashing Fix

This seems to be a problem with the shaders...and only happens with some video cards....some being ATI cards in my experience....

To fix it is quite simple...

1. Install the game from the CD.

2. Download the official 1.02 patch:
Mirror 1: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=IWUY33LH
Mirror 2: http://www.4shared.com/file/wJ_SSH1w/sr2pc102.html

3. Install the patch.

4. Click the start menu...and click Run...

5. In the run box type "regedit" without the quotations...and press enter.

6. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER >> Software >> Crystal Dynamics >> Soul Reaver 2 >> 1.00000

7. Double click the line called disablevshader and change the value from 0 to 1.

8. Click OK to apply the change and close regedit.

For some reason I can't expand the crystal dynamics file on the regedit, what might be wrong?

This might seem like a stupid question, but have you ran the game at all? Sometimes that registry string isn't created until you run the game.

If running the game doesn't solve the problem, download this:

Its the entire registry string for Soul Reaver 2 with the value (in the post) changed already. Just double click it and click yes when asked if you want to merge it with the registry.

Hope that helps.
