Issues fixed[edit]

Crashing at launch[edit]

The game will crash upon launch on a PC configuration with more than 4 Cores (excluding virtual cores, which would actually be 10 total cores)
  1. Download this file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m8ewe5w8slf3zuv/EM2_FIX.zip
  2. Extract the archive.
  3. Copy "dinput8.dll" and paste it into the game directory: Normal directory for the Steam version = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Disney Epic Mickey 2"

Notes

Roughly explained, this file tricks the game telling it that the system has 4 cores, while it actually has more. The game itself does not seem to behave badly on a setup with many cores, it's just about a core count check.

Cutscene(s) freezing[edit]

The game may freeze upon entering Mean Street North or any other area that starts with a cutscene.
Steam Overlay method

Opening the Steam Overlay during the cutscene(s) with Shift+Tab.

Notes

Not guaranteed to work.
Disabling cutscene(s)
  1. Right-click the game in your Steam library.
  2. Click "Manage", then click "Browse local files".
  3. In the folder that pops up (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Disney Epic Mickey 2, or something similar), create a file called ConfigOverride.ini.
  4. Write in the following line, then save and launch the game:
SkipIGCs=true

Notes

To reactivate the cutscenes, delete or rename ConfigOverride.ini and restart the game.
Safe method.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/245300/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (245300) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
