Look for the GOG delisted version of The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena. It includes Butcher Bay inside the newer game and started straight up on my Ryzen / Win 10 machine.

For those trying to get this to run on a modern system, I would suggest using Wine on Linux to do so. Bypasses all the issues of running this thing on a Windows machine.

The only issue I had was Wine not correctly telling Riddick that it was using OpenGL 1.4 The following Commandline in a Shell script solves that

MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.5 wine 'MyPath/Riddick EFBB/System/Win32_x86_SSE2/SbzEngine.exe'

Is this the one that was also released for the OG Xbox and got very positive reviews back then? I always wanted to play it but since I didn't have neither an Xbox nor a compatible PC at the time I didn't get to do it. I remember how big of a surprise it was when this game was released because nobody was expecting a game adaptation of the Riddick franchise to be this good, specially since the sequel movie was bad and game adaptations in general tend to be disappointing. I'll definitely check this one out.

If you go to explore the CD there is a folder called HOODLUM. i'm assuming you copy the SbzEngine files over from the HOODLUM folder to the respective system folders where you downloaded the game.

e.g. C:\Program Files\Starbreeze Studios\Riddick EFBB\System

i just have a quick question for whoever downloaded the game from here, is the no cd patch already in the game's folders? or do you have to get it seperatly?

@Marsh this is the og Butcher Bay, not the enhanced edition. Dark Athena is not included.

Brutal, game, is a great game for Riddick fans.

Is there some kind of no cd patch anyone has found? I looked online and found that the director's cut sometimes isn't recognised as a genuine copy of the game by its inbuilt DRM
