Can't get TM2 Working on PC

I'll be real here. I'm completely new to this site, I don't even know if I'm posting on the right part of the forum, so bear with my incompetence. Smiley

I'm running a Windows 10 PC and I have no idea how to get TM2 working. I'm talking PC port, not PSX emulation btw. I have the game downloaded running off of a thumbdrive atm, and I can get it working to an extent but that's it. Starting up the EXE brings me to the first titles and the SingleTrac logo, then just goes straight to the main menu. No FMV, I don't know if that's even a thing on the PC version. At the menu everything looks fine and dandy. Clicking on the items like Single Player, Multiplayer, and Options highlights them but doesn't do anything. That's as far as I have gotten. I've tried every button combination, every keyboard that I own, every controller that I own, so I don't think that's the issue.

If anyone could help me with this I'd be super happy. I can send pictures, videos, whatever would help. Thanks  Smiley

I don't even know if TM2 PC would even work properly on Windows 10 being a 21 year old game. But it sounds like you're half way there so I guess it might be possible. Check the .exe properties and check the Compatibility settings, maybe you can mess around with that and get the game to work.
And if you got the game from a download on some website you might have a version without the video files, thus why no FMV after the Singletrac logo. People who have the .bin/.cue copies of the game or the rare official copy of the game would have the videos, but if all you have is the .exe and a group of necessary folders of game files then you wouldn't get the cut-scenes and the game would not have any music in it beyond the menu theme

You can get TM2 working on Windows 10 without any major issues. Just keep messing with those compatibility settings.

Although there is a memory leak glitch that bricks the game's ability to use a keyboard. There's some place you have to go and delete a file. It's happened to me twice before, and someone on here knew how to fix it. Maybe they are still stalking around the forum, and can chime in.

It sounds like you're having that exact problem. The fmv is also just missing on your copy. It's no big deal. The game work fine otherwise.

I used to have that problem with a ripped version of the game, I ended up using an alternative download and it worked.

If the menu doesn't respond, you'll need to delete a record in the registry.

BUT if you cannot shoot/move/keyboard whatever on that PC... try going to....

start -> run -> regedit
hkey_local_machine -> software -> sony interactive -> twisted metal 2 -> 1.0.1 -> delete InputKeyboardStatus



Actually on Windows 10, I found it in:
\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\So
ny Interactive\Twisted Metal 2

You might need to enable DirectPlay in the control panel.
