2.0.2.0 Patch
« on: May 11, 2021, 12:22:04 PM »
Hello there!
I am looking for original 2.0.2.0 patch for original game. Thus far all I have found are patches that patch up to 2.0.2.1. The one available in FTP of war2 ru that is half the size of other patches, indeed patches exe to 2.0.2.0 but when I try to open up multiplayer window it crashes with access violation. Base game 2.0 and patched with other patches to 2.0.2.1 loads the menu just fine, but I need original 2.0.2.0.
I have tried the 3 exes from the war ru installer but they return different version hash which makes them not usable.
I'd really appreciate info about how to get working 2.0.2.0 where multiplayer section works.
GoG hashes are also different, I tried setting up pvpgn server which features autoupdate with mpq files which in theory should update the game to correct 2.0.2.0 version but for my unlock, all version of the game I have installed do not feature gateway seletion unless patched to 2.0.2.1 so they do not connect to my realm to autoupdate even if the gateway is set up in registry.

It's the one I tried. It indeed install 2.0.2.0 but game always crashes when clicking Enhanced in multiplayer or the other option. Works just fine on base 2.0 and 2.0.2.1 so it might be the issue with the patch itself I think
Here's the error when accesing multi with 2.0.2.0, be it .exe from different game versions or the patch 2.0.2.0 from the ftp: https://pastebin.com/PW6aRhE8
It works fine if used only with War2Combat, but then the issue is, the exe provided with that version produces different has than real exe.
I think I could go work with it if I would have custom specific version checks for these exe for pvpgn, but without that I'd be allowing all unknown versions to enter. And I am unsure how to produce correct version checks for WC2ru or GOG's exes. And that unfortunately leaves me with missing original 2.0.2.0 working exe.

this: http://ftp.war2.ru/war2/Fixes%20&%20Patches/Original%202.0.2.0%20patch/w2bne2020.zip
The only way to get this (the way i used), was to connect to the original bnet server using version 2.00 and to get update.
Not working now as these servers are not alive.

At the same time no idea why clicking Enhanced can cause crash.
Combat uses slightly modified .exe as soon as M$ added the original .exe to the list of known games, but ... something goes wrong how that happens sometimes with M$, so war2 stopped working properly after that. Modified exe works perfectly as earlier.

War2ru servers accept all known and unknown versions, as original 2020, original 2021, gog 2021 and all the others, should not be a problem.
Need help to translate War2Combat to German, French, Italian, Polish or another language: http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,4728.0.html
Please, contact me if you are interested in that.

Also game resources (mpq) should be a little different for different .exe
Problems can cause if your mpq contains dialogs or w/e for different .exe (though i didn't analyse your dump yet)

crashes when clicking Enhanced in multiplayer
just rename Patch_W2.mpq to War2Patch.mpq
