I got my copy of Rainbow Six Vegas 2 with a video card that I purchased recently and have been having fun problems.
First off, I could never find any online games and I simply thought it must be my router.
Also, the ACES system is non-existent and all the guns are already unlocked.
Now, this is where the weirdness begins. I forgot my CD one day and decided to find a NO-CD patch and viola, all my problems were solved. The ACES system was back and I could find many online games.
I found my CD and switched back to the normal .exe and the previous problems came back.
I assumed that the auto patcher had failed and downloaded the 1.03 patch and tried to apply it, only to have the damned thing report that I have the German version or some crap like that.
And I can't play with the NO-CD patch because I fear Punk Buster will ban me and because when I play online, I suddenly get stuck, not because of lag or anything like that, but I simply can't use my mouse or keyboard. I can still fire though.
