Serious sam 2 _ won't install

Post by jso2897 » Wed May 09, 2007 15:15

I am trying to install SS2, but two things happen - first, I get a message on the console that tells me it can't install Home/ssamtse because it already exists - and sure enough, if you look in Home, it does - but the file disappears after you abort the installation. The other thing that happens id that it keeps asking you to mount the CD (it's a dvd actually), even though it is demonstrably mounted - you can see it on the desktop and read the contents. I don't think the CD is the problem - I have installed SS1 using the Loki installer and it runs great. One thing that I noticed is that my PC is a little weak in the CPU dept. for the game - the minimum I read online and the ones that canme with the game are different. I have a more powerful XP machine I can play it on anyway - it's no big deal. :)

We have no Serious Sam 2 installer or do you mean Serious Sam The Second Encounter?

It works out OK anyway. I have another PC, a Athlon64 3800 w/Geforce 7600 card. It runs XP, and it play SS2 just fine. It's a cool game, too. really cartooney and weird. I guess now I have to follow through and get a copy of SSSE off of Amazon. They have one for only $2.95! :P
