Need original FEAR exe  

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ever since I downloaded the fixed no-cd exe for FEAR, I have always been unable to install the latest patch. However when my friend bought me FEAR Extraction Point, it requires me to update to 1.07v of FEAR. I cannot, however, because it just gives me an error: "This update is only compatible with the English (United States) version of FEAR. Please use the correct Update for the installed version of the game". I have also downloaded the UK English patch but it does not work either. I am thinking maybe I need the original exe to get the patch working. If so, would someone kindly upload it for me as I cannot find an original one anywhere on the net? It would be greatly appreciated

Why not just reinstall it from your retail purchased CD? You do have one of those, right...?

I do, but that would mean me losing all my game saves and configuration tweaks. It would take some time and I would like to try to avoid this. The original exe is only less than 5mb (size of a song) so if someone has one it is very easy to upload it. It would save me tons of hassle and troubleshooting. What if the exe is NOT the problem? Then I would end up losing everything if I reinstalled.

Backup the configuration and save files, then reinstall. Or, alternatively, just install to a different location.

I've been searching the installation CD for the original exe but it is not there. This is my last resort before I reinstall the game, and HOPEFULLY the patch will recognize it as the English (United States) version again.

Uninstall the game and reinstall.

To get your save games go to:

C:\\Documents and Settings\\All Users\\Documents\\Monolith Productions

Copy the F.E.A.R. Folder to wherever you want it so it won't be deleted, uninstall the game, restart PC, install and put the folder back in there and replace all the existing files.

EDIT: Also, make sure that when you reinstall and you're running 1.0v it will ask you to update, do it from there it downloads a 1.0 > 1.08 patch.

Guys this is a rather Dodgy Thread..Becareful what you say you are representing oc.net here

Guys, we cannot have any talk about sending copyrighted software around. Whether it is less convenient or not, the only legal solution is to reinstall the game from the original CDs. Preserving saved games and configuration settings should not be a challenge for the kind of intelligent people I know we have on these forums. Let's further use that intelligence to steer clear of discussions we all know we shouldn't be having here, okay?

Thanks.
