    FIRST !!!!

  2. magico (11 Mar 2016, 16:15)

    thank you!!!


  3. magico (11 Mar 2016, 16:18)

    thank you!!!

    do i need to install previous update (1)?

  4. ouduk (11 Mar 2016, 17:42)

    It does not update because all the languages except ENG and RUS are missing from the main game

  5. razb1 (11 Mar 2016, 23:08)

    I could use some help each time I try to update the game it tells me that there was an error due to me missing the other language files other than ENG and RUS, is there a way I can get past this.

  6. KK (12 Mar 2016, 14:22)

    I’m also having the same error, I went and downloaded the game again from this site and it is giving this same error again.

  7. BRS (12 Mar 2016, 21:55)

    for those of you that need the localization files

  8. KK (13 Mar 2016, 3:41)

    @BRS thanks for posting the link but it comes up as file does not exist 🙁

  9. KK (13 Mar 2016, 3:42)

    Has anyone gotten this update to work using the given files from this site? I haven’t. And now I’m getting different errors along with the language packs not being there.

  10. KK (13 Mar 2016, 4:08)

    Forgive me, I’m an idiot. The default installer was directed to the wrong drive. Sorry to waste everyone’s time! and thank you for the help and update 🙂

  11. vince (13 Mar 2016, 15:42)

    Having the same problem with no localization files other than INT and RUS

  12. razb1 (14 Mar 2016, 2:05)

    Your probably gonna need the Xcom Codex download.
    I went back and downloaded that and then loaded the update and my game is working fine except for a few crashes every now and then.

  13. Exile (15 Mar 2016, 7:12)

    Ugh, Can we get a NON codex update for this? >_> im using a repack and find the missing language files to FUCKING UPDATE IT

  14. glez13 (15 Mar 2016, 18:26)

    The people having problems are probably using the original repack version that was originally posted on this site. You need the Codex version because the original repack had ripped some of the languages.

  15. Jireh (16 Mar 2016, 2:44)

    Guys, noob here at Skidrow, where do I put the update folder and its contents? And do I need to download “UPDATE 1” as well? Sorry for the trouble.

  16. Lkz (16 Mar 2016, 17:43)

    Install “UPDATE 1” First over the Repack then install “UPDATE 2-CODEX” For me it works. 🙂

  17. Ad Valorum (17 Mar 2016, 22:11)

    @KK it’s a lowercase l not I

  18. Raj (20 Mar 2016, 4:21)

    Ok so I was able to install the game and it runs fine. Later when update one comes out, I install it with the instructions and all is well again. I did not know how to install this so I ran the setup.exe. After it finished, it CoS. I thought maybe I need to put the original crack in. I did that but still it CoS. I have the update one correctly installed and did a playthrough with it. What am I doing wrong? Can someone help me out please? I have the XCOM 2 CODEX one. Is that the right one?

  19. Meinnhart (24 Mar 2016, 8:37)

    NOT WORKING. I tried 4 times on a full updated computer

  20. yobu (24 Mar 2016, 14:49)

    why i’ve got error it says ” the program can’t start because nvtt_64.dll is missing…..” what should i do? i’ve did update 1 and 2 but it says the same

  21. Dawn (29 Mar 2016, 3:51)

  22. David (02 Apr 2016, 9:34)

  23. David (02 Apr 2016, 9:36)


    Sorry use this link lol. (I forgot to replace the l in the last one)

  24. Shkeiru (05 Apr 2016, 12:33)

    Thanks it seem working for me !!!

  25. eesese (05 Apr 2016, 23:20)

  26. usman (11 Apr 2016, 17:18)

    everything went smoothly , even xcom2 codex 2 patch update…but after installing, when i click on tge Xcom2.exe im getting not a valid win32 application…..any solutions for that?

  27. enigma (13 Apr 2016, 15:33)

    even after update #2 i cant get past to comunication tower mission ,,, time still freezes on world map.
    HELP !!

    had the same prob
    after installing update #2 copy all the files to the main game dir

  28. usman (15 Apr 2016, 16:28)

    well, i appreciate ur reply….but, looks like i’m still doing something wrong…..i’ll reinstall the game and update the game and try the stuff u suggested….i’m using the codex2 game file…i wonder whether to download the deluxe edition of the game to try out instead of codex 2…..

  29. enigma (19 Apr 2016, 9:46)

    install the game CODEX style
    then install CODEX update 1
    then install CODEX update 2
    when it done installing go to the update 2 dir copy all to the game folder …
    and you are done

  30. Jordan (10 May 2016, 21:55)

    If you want to change the language in the Win64 folder seek game file: steam_api , this will see a section in putting language , change the default language puts and now this.

  31. James (15 May 2016, 18:33)

    Won’t work for me
    Install Xcom2-Codex (26.5 gb) -> Working
    Install Update 1 + crack -> Working
    Install this one… added even localization files before to be 100% sure, XCom 2 stops working at launch every single time

    The only possible problem is that I’m installing it on a different drive… but seriously :/

  32. Adnan (04 Jul 2016, 22:22)

    @James same problem here this is so frustrating :'( Hope there will be a fix asap 🙁

  33. Bechara0 (11 Jul 2016, 13:44)

    Para cambiar el idioma a español busquen en la carpeta XCOM 2\Binaries\Win64 el archivo steam_api.ini , lo ejecutan y donde dice languaje debe quedar: Language=spanish luego guarden los cambios y listo el juego pasa a españl. Saludos

  34. kris (17 Jul 2016, 11:07)

    same for me i have delux codex did all dlc works perfekt etc di patch 1 works patch 2 wont start so hade 2 re dl every thing :O 🙁

  35. Prasanth (21 Jul 2016, 2:04)

    I have an issue during the final mission. The game does not take me past the soldier selection menu but the soldiers move around it does not take me beyond that .

  36. FD (09 Aug 2016, 11:33)

    Sure I downloaded the Game from a different source
    but i just realized your two dirrent patches here by chance.
    Just make a fully updatet page where you explain everyone, everything?
    Cause, that would be really helpful.

  37. Alex (11 Aug 2016, 18:31)

    i’ve download and install everything the way it should but when i go to play it it says “xcom 2 has stop working”

  39. David (05 Sep 2016, 12:13)

    Extracted, installed, copied contents of CODEX folder over originals, repeat for update 1 and 2. Before updates, I got to a black screen, then got a hang. Now, it crashes immediately after putting its icon on my bar. Logs in MyGames/Xcom2/XcomGame/logs indicate all good until:

    It says ‘delete and re-cook’ engine.upk, I guess I will try renaming it as a backup then running to see if it will be re-cooked at runtime. Can’t make it worse :). Anyway I hope this is useful to any ongoing development. Cheers and thanks.

  40. David (05 Sep 2016, 12:23)

    Yeah that didn’t work. Will go through codex folders for this file, try them all, maybe?

  41. Name (16 Oct 2016, 8:43)

    copying the localization folder worked properly for me make sure to copy the localization folder inside engine folder and xcomgame folder.

  42. KakashiMugen (09 Nov 2016, 6:41)
