Hi, I want to thank you for releasing such a brilliant mod for this great game. I just wanted to report a problem that happens after installing union 1.0c; the game won't start no matter what I do. It says it stopped working and this is what it says in the details:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
Application Name: Gothic2.exe
Application Version: 2.6.0.0
Application Timestamp: 3f966d87
Fault Module Name: SHW32.DLL
Fault Module Version: 1.0.0.0
Fault Module Timestamp: 5d85120f
Exception Code: c0000005
Exception Offset: 0001d694
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1050
Additional Information 1: 4c0d
Additional Information 2: 4c0d4d78887f76d971d5d00f1f20a433
Additional Information 3: 4c0d
Additional Information 4: 4c0d4d78887f76d971d5d00f1f20a433

I have tried replacing the shw32.dll file with the one before installing union 1.0c (I made a backup of the system folder) and I can see the game's process is running but nothing happens. When I revert back to union 1.0b it starts without a problem. I would appreciate your help.

Uninstall all Union assets (all of it; right-click on an asset and select the "Clear" option), then reinstall them again via the installation guide (Game Patch should be installed first), then try to play the game. Also, you should have only *one* Union v1.x package installed (not v1.0a + v1.0b + v1.0c together, for example), thus make sure it is so. Eventually, you can stay with v1.0b alone, because v1.0c doesn't add too much changes (mainly Direct3D surround sound, .OGG files compatibility, extended parser for scripts, and solves the issue with unarmed animations), plus it's still fresh, implying there might be updates to it soon.

I have tried that, reinstalled the whole game from scratch and followed your guide carefully but the same issue persists. I guess I shall stick to 1.0b after all, it doesn't matter that much to me as long as your mod works :)

Hello! I love your work!
I just wanted to point out two things:

1) For some reason, whenever I use a torch, there's neither any torch nor any light. There's the animation of the nameless hero holding it though. I don't know if this only happens to me.

2) Bennet no longer gives steel billets the way he used to before this mod. Was this intentional? If yes, are there new sources one can acquire steel billets?

Thank you in advance. Keep up the good work!

Best wishes,
Α Gothic Universe Fan

1) Follow the installation guide, because Union is required. If you have v1.0c, then revert back to v1.0b. Have only one v1.x Union package (either v1.0a or v1.0b or v1.0c) installed. YAUP doesn't work with the classic SystemPack v1.7 and the pre-Union required auxiliaries for Gothic II mods any longer.

2) That was a vanilla bug, the same as with Huno (and again Bennet at The Halls of Irdorath). That means the amount of raw steels is limited now (approx. 135 for the entire game), and mostly new Chapter merchandise-controlled, as intended in the first place.

I followed the installation guide and everything looked fine till I went to chapter 2. When I enter the valley of mines there's the normal loading screen.

However, once I am in the valley of mines everything is pitch black. I can't see anything at all nor can I walk or do anything. Also, on the floor there are: diego's money, gorn's money, cavalorn's ore, 2x goblin berries and a frosty message. All those are on the floor right when I enter the valley of mines. I cannot see them, I see their text showing and I pick them up.

I entered marvin mode to see whether I am stuck somewhere, but the whole world is like that. I went to the castle with GOTO POS and still everything was black.

I was able to go to the unknown part of Khorinis without any problems. I finished all quests there.

Is there any way to fix this?

Did you start a new game or started with a save from v2.2/2.3?

Czudak Hello,

I started with a save from v2.3 :(

Then, for debugging purposes, start a new game and try to enter the Valley of Mines and see if the issue happens still. Using cheats is obligatory.

Hello again, I just started a new game and went to the valley of mines. However, there was the same issue. :(

I used a story helper to go to chapter 2 before going there just in case...

I figured it out. I'm stupid.
I said I followed the installation guide. But I had forgotten completely about Union.

I am playing Gothic on Linux Mint and I can't make that Resource Manager work.

I mean when I click on the "Union" tab, no option appears.

I guess there's no other way to install that union game patch without resource manager.

Sorry for the trouble.

I managed to apply Union and the rest of the patches. Everything seems to work nicely.

Hi Czudak!

I Installed the mod, it works, BUT
I have a mobile(laptop) NVIDIA GPU and the game only recognizes the integrated intel gpu which results in really low fps(20-25), and its hard to enjoy.

Do you have any fix/solution for this issue?
