are you using version 2? if so it's already patched

Sorry but what's a nocd?

And I do not think I have version 2 because I have audio issues.

a nocd is an altered version of the exe that allows you to play the game without the cd in the machine, hence the name. as you don't know what it is, i assume you're not using one.

personally i'd uninstall the game and then reinstall it, and then try patching the game.

Hey thanks for the help

It seems that I have version 2.0

... is this a buggy game on the pc?

I mean I have the game only 2 days and problems keep coming (no crashes yet)

I have sound problems (it sometime disappears entirely except for the car radio)

The mouse sometimes does nothing any more (after I have saved the game)

And in some places the FPS go down in the low 20 (for example the area around Emmet the gun dealer)

1. It might not be the EU patch.

2. When did you buy the game? If it was quite recent you have V2 and should get the downgrade patch.
Let's go to work...

Oops, didn't read that.

This is not a buggy port. Get the 1.1 patch and the annoying things are fixed.
