I recently got the Jagged Alliance 2: Gold package with Unfinished Business. I'm getting an Error Code 85 when I try to play them. Any suggestions?

Also getting Error Code 85

Posts on forum for other games seem to say that the error clears up once valve patches the .exe.

This seems to be a coding issue that they just don't seem to want to own. Understandable, since they dont make a lot of money off this title, I'd bet.

So, we have to be noisy about it - and make it worth their while to fix this error. I've already put a ticket on this and get the usual run-around stall....

This is an error code. Error codes are listed. You don't even have to know the alphabet to find this error code in the list - it is listed by number.... Be super nice if someone can parse the error code list and post documentation for error code 85.

Everyone, please, take the time to post here if you are having problems.

Would also be interested in seeing posts from those who have recently bought JAG2 - and are *not* having this issue. Thanks.

Same deal

If STEAM isn't going to fix it, at least it should give us a refund.

Same problem.
Just PURCHASED and installed it...error ode 85.
Very nice.
I have the original version of JA2 (normal edition, not gold, and it runs fine) so I figure this definately has something to do with steam.

I expect a fix or a refund.
Will also send an email to steam support.

The fan-made patch makes the game working, if anyone was wondering.
