Issues fixed[edit]

Windows 7 Compatibility Issues[edit]

If you are experiencing difficulty launching the game, right click Risk 2's shortcut and choose Properties. Edit the Target section of the shortcut's properties to read the game path, which should already be there, and then add -noavi at the end. With that done, you should now be able to see the menu upon launch and play the game.

Notes

  1. SafeDisc retail DRM does not work on Windows 10[1] and is disabled by default on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 when the KB3086255 update is installed.[2]
  2. 2.0 2.1 When running this game without elevated privileges (Run as administrator option), write operations against a location below %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMDATA%, or %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista and later (more details).
  3. 3.0 3.1 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>/38060/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (38060) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
