Have you tried left ctrl
for the console ?
And AFAIK GOG has the latest version - trying to apply a patch will give you the illegal\manipulated error
Yep- tried it..
Also patch wouldnt install so noworries there
If your on windows7 or vista are you running the game as administrator?
Yep, Windows 7, Ive tried everything... the game wont run unless I run it as administrator, even then the console wont open though..
Thank you both for your help :)
