The savior patch removes any CD check.
Wrong, I've just re-installed everything and did all the updates installations and it still requires a CD
DragonBossk, now I've redone everything (including deleting AutoUpdate), and still no good in opening the main menu..
maybe it's a problem of compatibility to Windows 7, AVP2 can't run at all neither from the CD or from the Application!
Anyways, I can run the AVP2 through Xfire, but still "The version checking process has failed"...
 :-\ guess I'm lost

Oh god now you've made me go and feel all sympathetic. Ok first forget about the savior patch we'll just try and get the main menu to display.

1) First uninstall the game and delete everything in and including the Fox/AVP2 directory.

2) Load up disc 1 and install (to install the game the main menu has to display anyway), if the menu doesn't come up automatically double click the disc in My Computer. Switch the disc 2 and back to disc 1 when prompted. Don't bother installing gamespy when asked. Make sure a shortcut is created on the desktop.

3) Download and install the 1.0.9.6 patch xMx posted here:

4) Right click the desktop shortcut, go properties, under compatibility run under xp sp2 or sp3 compatability mode. Also make sure the "Run as administrator" box is ticked, an important step.

5) Making sure disc 1 is in your DVD drive double click the desktop shortcut and accept "yes" to run the program (Windows 7 should ask for your permission).

Now tell me if the main menu comes up. If it doesn't nothing can be done (except an OS install if you really want to take it that far).

Hey, what do ya know it worked eventually...
I was able after like a year playing avp2 online finally!
and you know what's funny? i think the problem was in Xfire because it still made me that problem "version checking process failed", but however using the original way "find internet games" with AVP2 main menu i was able to join servers!

thanks alot DragonBossk and everyone who tried to help! looking forward to play with you online!  ;)
