It is suggested by Ubisoft (makers of Grandia 2 for the PC) that if you are having problems with the game you should get the newest versions of Direct X as well as Windows Media Player.
If you are having trouble beating Milenia when you meet her, that is because you are supposed to lose to her. But if she will not cast Zap on you, I'm afraid you are out of luck. A suggestion to beat her it to defend the whole time, and hopefully she'll cast Burn on you, and then after a few turns she will cast Zap.
All of you PC owners have to realize that this is the Dreamcast versions forum, so while we can help you with gameplay problems, we cannot help you with system problems. Hopefully Ubisoft will release a patch soon to fix the problems with it.

I have the same problem as always For Ryudo, He suppose to make "Swoosh" noise when he slashes an enemy, that happens 1/1000 times on PC & all the times on the DC version. Sound bug ?
Yeah same problem here.

Hey folks I am having the same problem as most others.
Videos (all of them) just refuse to play in the game.
Yes I dl the game. Yes I copied all files from CD2. Yes I am using a crack EXE. Yes I dl codec packs. Yes I tried video compression using VirtualDub. Yes I tried compatibility mode.
Still no luck! Any ideas?

I found how to solve in Grandia 2 snooze or dark wing glitch and no animation freeze - you need to install or re-install the game but not install NOCD - just play with 2nd CD inserted or mounted in dvirtual drive. If problem not resolved so re-install game untill it will works good.

To fix unplayable videos in game (dark screen), unplayable animation of snooze and dark wings (glitch) you need to reinstall your game but not install NOCD - just play with 2nd CD inserted in virtual drive. And also don't forget to open config to create .cfg If it isn't solve this problem - try again untill it works good.
Hope this helps (this is not a crack) Rename your old exe to grandia2.exe.old and same with the Gmconfig.exe
if you have 2 cds in the drive at once the game will not load. Use your grandia 2 cd or mount an image.
PHXORCIST, It's work. Thank you so much. I use the grandia2.exe & config from the winrar file.

So I finally fixed the shit!
I'm not sure if changing the permissions and ownership of anything helped, or if using the fix on page 21/22 helped but I finally got it to work doing 1 stupid thing! I changed the compatibilty from windows 98/me to windows 7! Now the cut scenes for millinea and even the game arts show up!!
Hope this helps!

So guys, I followed multiple steps and was able to get the game up and running on Windows 8 64 bit but with a couple of problems
First I copied all files from the second disk to the directory and copied the crack as well. Launched the game but I got stuck at the black screen after hitting new game. F9 helped me clear that.
I originally wanted to use my own disks (which i have owned for a very long time) but I cant seem to create an image of the play disk for some reason.
The game however, still isnt playable as it freezes whenever i try to use fallen wings or snooze.I tried to screw around with the permissions and ownership and all of that but to no avail. I even copied some edited codecs that was also one of the suggestions but that didnt work either. I unplugged my controller and ran both the config and the exe as administrator but that didnt work either. Ive ran everything in compatibility mode as well but it still isnt working.
So if anyone knows of any other solutions please share! I was glad to finally be able to play this game again after so long and I really wanna go through it.
