Its actually the intro file, its an .exe that is corrupt.  Its the only file that I can;t copy from the CD.  I was backing up my disks as they are getting beat looking.  Disk 2 seems to work when the game asks for it...when does the intro play?  When you start the game?  Ive never seen it...this is probably why.  

Is there a disadvantage to using the underdogs version and just adding all the relevent files?  I was thinking of burning a new copy.  I assume an advantage there would be you dont have to swap any disks?  Is it the complete game?  What would be the advantage of finding the 3 .iso's as compared to using the underdogs version?

This game is so amazing...so ahead of its time.

The HOTU version is not the complete game, but if you add all the other files, it will be the whole game.

The main advantage of the HotU version is that it's a smaller download and very easy to find. If you can find the iso for disk2 that's a much better choice if you have the time/bandwidth.

BTW if you already have FS2 installed (and your first post makes is sound like you do) and Disk2 is the problem why not try installing FS2_Open or a no CD crack and avoid the need for the CD completely?

That should allow you to play while you get yourself a copy of the second CD from whereever.

You could get FS2 + FS1 from Amazon for $38. Stop bidding and let the auction end and hope you don't win. If you don't, buy it from Amazon. If you do, you've just wasted 27 bucks.

Ach! I got my FS2 on e-bay too. I paid 90 greenbacks, a bit pricey, but it was unopened and even the case didn't have a fingerprint on it. :nod:
Be sure you know exactly what you're buying or you might end up with 3 scratched CDs smeared with fingerprints in 10 cent jewel cases.

This is it.  Its the sim of the year edition..the one I wanted.  Its more fo rmy collection than anything.  Looks good but thats as high as I will bid.  I guess if anyone wants to go higher its yours.  65 seems fair for a classic.

You should hope to God that you lose. You can get a copy on Amazon for $35-50, and with FS1 included to boot.

Good thing you lost! You want it in the original box that it comes in so you know it hasent been tampered with. Who knows how many scratches were on the back of those CD's. Maybe that's why he had them face down...

Or look at the HotU page of my FAQ. Lots of people ended up needing one after patching.
