    Privateer 2 patch issue - Game freezes on landing

    I'm having another problem with the recent patch. Although the music and sound have been fixed this time (and Coolsoft VirtualMidi is now working as it should), I've been having trouble with the joystick throttle changing views and have one major bug where the game would start to freeze upon...

    Privateer 2 patch issue - Game freezes on landing

    Do we still require the DARKFIX.exe to have Windows95 compatiblity on? Seems to run smoothly even without the compatibility mode on. (Still have to do some testing on the joysticks, but the latest patch seems to have fixed midi playback on all modes, although it could be because I've updated to...

    New Privateer 2 Patch Adds Deinterlace Feature & Makes Numerous Improvements (October 1, 2013)

    The joystick issue mostly happens when going into compatibility mode for older versions of Windows (it shows up around XP compatibility mode). My guess is that the polling rates aren't neutralized or something... Anyways, I find the issue was solved when callibrating my joystick in native mode...

    Nope. Still didn't work despite changing those two lines. Incidentally, those were also the defaults. But yeah, in case it matters, I do have CoolSoftVirtualMIDISynth installed, but it worked perfectly fine on Wing Commander 3. (Currently using WeedsGM3 soundfont)

    I have trouble getting DARKFIX to run on when Windws 95/ Windows 98/ME compatibility mode. The game would play the Origin FMV, but then just freeze after playing that cutscene (if there's a save game, it will go to the menu, but it will refuse to play any other cutscenes or start the flight part...
