I now have a computer capable of playing Syberia 1 at long last. However, the game freezes when Kate Walker hands Oscar his feet. I have been looking for patches at all kinds of places, including links on Gameboomers. When I find promising downloads, the site attempts to slip malware and other nasty stuff into my hard drive and my antivirus cuts me off. Would there be any kind soul here who can provide the patches for Syberia 1 and 2? It would be much appreciated and I guarantee your karma will rack up at least 10 more points.
May the fleas from a thousand camels infest all those who try to take advantage of an adventure gamer!


OF COURSE THOSE CRAZIES ARE HAPPY! And that makes me crazy!

Try Patches-Scrolls

This patch is for the original Syberia CD from 2002.
The patch is from 2003 and is the only official patch.
Its main function is to fix problems caused by hyperthreading or multi-core processors. Any re-issue CD's already have this patch applied. As far as I know there was never a more recent downloadable patch, but download versions (from GOG, Steam, Big Fish, etc.) may have additional tweaks to help them run on modern hardware.

Be aware that modern antivirus often label every piece of software that isn't "popular" as a virus. And considering that this sp3 Syberia patch wasn't needed for any reissue version of Syberia, or any modern download version, it's not "popular."

I don't know of any patch for Syberia 2 -- unless you're looking for a NoCD crack. Like game trainers, NoCD's are often labelled as malware even when they're not. They aren't official patches, but may be necessary if disc-based DRM is blocking the game from starting.

I don't know where you tried to download the patch from, but some places that used to be reliable now attempt to install unwanted toolbars, etc.

Syberia is sold all over the place, and you can find it for as little as $1.99 when there's a sale at GOG, Steam, etc. If you're not finding a patch that is fixing whatever your problem with the game is, I'd recommend re-purchasing it as a download when it's on sale.

Considering that 20-year-old computers were able to play it as long as they had a video card with 32mb video RAM, I'm wondering if you mean you got a vintage computer as opposed to a new one.

And just in case you have problems - although the patches-scrolls website is great - GOG does sell these games completely patched for modern computers.

I always had to play Syberia in compatibility mode because it froze in parts of the game. That was all i did - no patches needed. Maybe you can try that too? Good Luck!
