For the past couple of months, I've been doing some tinkering to improve the stability of Creatures 2, both on modern hardware and just in general. It's finally reached the point where I think the community at large might be able to enjoy it:
The website, while not stylish, has all of the information you should need to get started. These updates take the form of a binary patch that you apply to your original executable. It's compatible with the Steam edition, GoG edition, Albian Years, and C2 Deluxe.
Things still aren't perfect, but they've improved a lot. For example, I recently had a 30-something hour continuous wolfling run! We've also seen worlds that were previously unloadable that are now loadable. When it does crash now, it usually isn't world ending, so you can pick back up where you left off. (You may lose a Norn or two, though. One of the fixes is that corrupted creatures now die instead of rendering the world unusable.)
Anyway, there's still a lot of work to do, but hopefully this allows more people to enjoy Creatures 2! Please let me know how it goes.
