  • The patch does not work because it seems to be a dos patcher. I see the following being printed on the console:
This will update Hitman 2: Silent Assassin to version 1.01
in the following directory:
Press 'Y' to continue or any other key to cancel

Obviously, pressing Y there doesn't help anything since Cedega does not support DOS executables. However, after I ran the fixed exe, the game showed that it was version 1.01.

  • ATI users must use the old Cedega version 3.3.2-1 with desktop emulation, or it will crash. testet with the newest ATI driver 8.23.7 on Suse Linux Professional 10. --Ground0 06:26, 12 Apr 2006 (EDT)


  • Copy HID.dll [] from windows install over to fake /windows/system32 directory. Without this the game won't run.


  • To enable the OpenGL mode, open the file Hitman2.ini in a text editor and find the following line:
DrawDll RenderD3D.dll

Now edit this line so that it reads:

DrawDll RenderOpenGL.dll

Be sure to save the file in DOS format or the game won't be able to read it!

  • On Geforce 8600GT hardware and cedega 6.1beta4, using ARB_VBO rendering path instead of NV_VAR (turn off NV_VAR in cedega graphics settings) results doubled frame rate.
