X2 The Threat Cutscene causing X2 to stop working
Have played all X series games on XP
However after a new win 7 PC.
Using steam download of Superbox set umnodified. X2 is crashing in cutscene after we are being hailed message, error displayed is 'X2 stopped working'. The game plays ok, audio is ok, other cutscenes ok. Is there a solution to get X2 working in win7 64 bit (note XBTF and XT work ok).

Works fine for me. Make sure you download all the patches from official website.

Or you can trick the X2.exe file and run it in compatability mode.

How did you resolve the problem?

Sorry, I did not resolve the problem. Previously I changed the resolution of the graphics card to resolve a previous plot cut scene problem. I was not keenon carrying out other changes to a perfectly good PC for a single cutscene failure. All other plots in all other X3 games run ok. So, I kept all drivers etc as before the cutscene problem and used a save game after that particular part of the plot to bypass the problem.

more than 2 years after this thread was started...well I also have been having problems with cutscene crashes (using Windows 8.1). My workaround has been to temporarily run it in compatability mode (Control Panel -> System and Security -> Action Center -> Troubleshooting -> find X2 in Steam Apps, Vista gave the best results for some reason). Hope this helps someone in the future.
