I have tried installing GK2 via GOG Galaxy and the backup installer, and both ways I get a message "The Beast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery is not installed. Please install ... with the Sierra Help Pages installer before using this subtitle patch."

I suppose this Sierra Help Pages installer is not something I should find in at the said site (because I didn't), but the "2nd version from GOG, the one that has my fixes for the patches applied", referred to by Collector some seven years ago.

Is this subtitle patch still functional with the current GOG version?

1)Open the GK2Subtitles.exe with 7zip
2)Extract all items in the Subpatch folder and replace it in "PATCHES" folder
3)Play
I just dont get it...
Please help.
I installed Gk2 using setupgk2.exe made by Endroz, so the whole game is on HDD now and I have no interlacing video.
Then I extract Subpatch to game folder for the subtitles.
Then add string "language=351" to Resource.win file.
Ok, and I have subtitles now, but not in every place in the game! I have object descriptions, in inventory, but there arent any subtitles in dialogues and movies... Was I miss something to do?
I try to relocate files from one folder to another, change "patchdir" line in .win file.. No luck.
Collector, give me an advice.

Yeah, not working for me too. Tried everything mentioned on the thread.
Ok. I made some tests and the problem is with this new Scumm version. I downloaded DOSBOX and it worked with the subtitles.

I am having a hard time with this game.
The subtitles patch would be a great help but it does not work with this GOG version of the game.
Methods posted on the Sierra Help Pages, on the ScummVM forum and even here don't seem to work.
Folders name and paths change and even renaming doesn't help.

I wonder if anyone here has a full, detailed and working procedure to enable the subtitles in the GOG version.

My only successful attempt so far was to run the game through DosBox 0.74 after extracting the GK2Subtitles.exe archive and moving the SUBPATCH folder.
