PC version of Overlord 2, the sequel to 2007’s popular 3rd person action adventure game, was released to the public just two days ago. From what I have experienced so far it’s a pretty decent game which retains the cartoon styled ‘evil’ and humor from the original game. Overlord 2 seemingly does not contain any showstopper bugs but several people have experienced crashes when trying to launch the game. If you are one of those souls, here is something you can do to fix it.
As you may already know most recently released games support hardware based physics acceleration (through NVIDIA PhysX and so on). Overlord 2 is no exception. In fact it seems to have developed ‘special bond’ with PhysX; the game is likely to crash on startup if latest version of NVIDIA PhysX is not installed. The strange part is that you might be required to install PhysX even if you own an ATI video card. Overlord 2 seems to require the PhysX runtime in order to function properly – it won’t give you hardware accelerated physics effects when using ATI cards or NVIDIA cards without PhysX support, but it will at least let you run the game without it crashing at launch.
