I wonder why Galaxy is so slow...
Perhaps it is intended to be a downloader in the background and throttles itself to not eat up your bandwidth. This would seem to be reasonable for an automatic updater, but silly for a game that you just purchased and want to play as soon as possible.

Re: GK2 - stuck at the opera

Your save games should be in a folder on your desktop with the same name as the game. Just drop them back into the newly installed folder. They should be in the same folder as the RESOURCE.CFG, I think named "save".

Er... *confused* If I install the game, what difference does it make if they update the installer file?
Different/better configurations, applied patches, any mistakes made with the earlier installer, etc.

The manually version got me past the hiccup point and I'm now trying to get Gabriel to obey me in the dressing room.
Drop the diagnostic tool in the manually installed folder, run it, and attach the log here.

Re: GK2 - stuck at the opera

Try just core= dynamic and cycles= max. Also, delete the memsize entry.
