Thanks for sharing this legendary game!
Got it working on Windows 10 64 bit. Steps:
1) Download iso;
2) Install game;
3) Run patch to update + copy-paste cr@k folder contents to game installation folder
4) Download DxWnd;
5) Download gangster 2 config file @ https://sourceforge.net/p/dxwnd/discussion/general/thread/1680a521/#2e58;
6) Set gangsters AND dxwnd exe with admin rights;
7) Play! Once done, kill gangsters exe with task manager.
1) If you do not use dxwnd, then you have full screen and alt-tabbing causes visual glitches like pink boxes or worse, because it uses directx. DxWnd also let's you play in window mode at native 800x600 resolution.
2) If you do not do step 6, you might get error of unable to install keyboard hook (or something)

Thanks. Works perfectly with Windows 10. I used the ISO for installation, then did the update. An error occured that dplayx.dll is missing and I should install Direct Play. Therefore I took dplayx.dll from the dir: C:/windows/SysWOW64 and copied it to C:/windows/System32 . I started the game again, agreed to install Direct Play which then automatically works.

Use Compatibility Mode
Set it for "Windows XP Service Pack 3"
Then, check "Run in 640X480 Resolution"
Runs perfectly. Peace

Thanks its working for me. Mount the iso image. Copy the crack file and overwrite. To update the game copy the update file to the installation folder and install. Everything should work then.

It's asking for the CD despite the crack. How do I get around this?
