Get System Shock 2 Working & Looking Great

*** If you are running the Steam or Good Old Games release of System Shock 2, download and run the System Shock 2 Mod Pack instead. ***

Every once in a while I run into someone who would like to go back and play System Shock 2. The problem is that out of the box the game will not run on anything remotely modern. The game used to be a a giant pain to get working, but thanks to the efforts of Kolya, we now have a single tool to run that fixes just about every issue the game had with running on modern computers. There are also a lot of great mods out there that make the game look fantastic.

Here are the steps I would suggest to get System Shock 2 working:

Installation & Getting mod ready


  • To install the game just copy the “shock” folder from the CD to your computer. (80 characters maximum path length. On Vista & Win7 do not copy to Program Files.)
  • Install the SS2Tool but uncheck “Bug Fixes” as none of them are needed anymore.
  • Extract System Shock 2 Patch to your desktop.
  • Extract new_dark.zip and contrib.zip into your game folder.
  • Install the SS2 Modmanager

Installing Mods


Installing the mods is easy using the mod manager.

  • Add your downloaded mods via the File menu.
  • Select the mod in the Mod List.
  • Click the Activate-button.
  • Start the game.

Shock Texture Upgrades

SHTUP is a mod for System Shock 2 which aims to increase the resolution of all the common (and quite a few of the not-so-common) object textures. A secondary objective of the mod is to correct all other graphical glitches, such as typos, continuity errors, texture alignment errors, and so on. All of this is to be done while sticking as closely as possible to the original art style.

BF3 In Depth – Attachments

Drift0r from YouTube goes into depth on the various weapon attachments in Battlefield 3. There is some good information in here that everyone should be aware of. I know I will be switching up my kits a bit as a result of his findings. For example, it looks like the foregrip is coming off a lot of my weapons.
