FAQ



.: What Is This Website? :.

This website was started on March 24, 2004. I created it as a personal page to showcase and provide downloads for all the files I've created for the PC game Aliens vs. Predator 2 (2001) and its expansion pack Aliens vs. Predator 2: Primal Hunt (2002).


AvP2 Box AvP2 PH Box



Since the inception of this website, it has changed hosts from Freewebs, AvP2Mods, LithFAQ and it now currently resides on AvPUnknown. The site has improved with each transition and is constantly evolving with small tweaks and improvements.




.: Where Can I Get AvP2 and Primal Hunt? :.

There is currently no digital release on Steam/GOG or similar platforms. You can either buy a physical used copy or download AvPUnknown's digital version.

AvP2 - All In One Edition

There are various other versions of AvP2 available online. However, this is the most complete package in that it includes the base game, expansion pack, all official updates, no cd cracks, the tools and guides. Enjoy!



.: Can I Use Your Files In My Mod? :.

Depends. You can only use them if you contact me, ask, AND receive permission.

If you don't contact me, you may not use my files in your mod at all.

I have set up a copyright covering every single file I have released in its corresponding readme (the text document accompanying the file's release) and a copyright covering the content of this website here:

Copyright © 2004 - 2018 KingKenny's AvP2 Skins

Consult the copyrights for more information.

No one likes rippers and I track down all who rip files from this site.

.: How Do I Install Rez Files? :.

  1. Extract the .rez file(s) from the .zip or .rar.
  2. Place the rez file in a "custom" folder in your Alien Versus Predator 2 directory.
    • If you don't have a custom folder, you must make one. *Hold mouse>Right click>New>Folder* Name it custom.
  3. Start AVP2.exe. Click "OPTIONS" on the launcher window with the picture of the queen.
  4. Type the following in the command line exactly as follows:

    "-rez custom/NameOfFile.rez"

  5. Check "Always specify these command-line parameters" and then go play.

.: How Do I Solve The "Client MFC Application Has Stopped Working" Error?:.

Error message: "Client MFC Application Has Stopped Working"

Cause: Multiple sources.

Possible causes and fixes for the error:

  1. Bad copy of the game. Either get a real physical copy, or a 100% complete copy of the game to install.
  2. Bad installation. Try uninstalling and reinstalling.
  3. Wrong display driver/resolution selected via the AvP2.exe. Change the settings on the display tab.
  4. Gaming peripherals (gaming keyboard/mouse, controller) might be causing errors. Try disabling the HIDs related to your gaming-peripherals.
  5. Firewall incompatibility. Try disabling your firewall or enabling full access for the game in the firewall settings. The firewall could possibly be set into gaming mode to fix this issue as well.
  6. Anti-virus incompatibility. Make sure your anti-virus software isn't blocking AvP2.exe or lithtech.exe.
  7. Windows compatibility. Try changing the windows compatibility to either Windows 98, XP, Vista, 7, etc.
  8. Blocked access. Try running AvP2.exe AND lithtech.exe as administrator. For Primal Hunt, set PrimalHunt.exe and lithtech.exe to run as administrator.
  9. Your computer might be too old to play the game. Unlikely, but make sure your computer meets the minimum requirements.
  10. Alt-tabbing in and out of open programs. AvP2 can sometimes crash when switching between programs.

From my experience, those who have a good copy of the game and still experience the MFC error, running the game as administrator or changing the compatibility settings will usually fix the error.



.: How Do I Fix Black Vision Modes, Low FPS, Graphical Tearing, Texture Popping, etc? :.

So far the best fix is the wrapper dgVoodoo2 at

Dege's Stuff

Please follow my video guide on how to install it and get it working:

There are other fixes for the black screen as well. However, these other fixes just disable the vision mode. dgVoodoo 2 will actually keep the vision mode working as originally designed.

.: Why Do You Make AvP2 Files/Mods? :.

        The reason why I started making mods for this game and still continue to do so, it is because it is favorite game of all-time (along with Goldeneye 007 on the N64). To be honest, I never thought I would be making files for a game and I'm extremely surprised that I still have a site up and running, considering all the sites, skinners, mappers, and modders, that have left the community.
        You'll also notice that the majority of my files are focused on non-AvP oriented themes. I try to make most of my files bring the player out of the AvP universe and into/merge some other universe or theme, while still maintaining AvP2's gameplay elements for server compatibility. The reason why I stray from the AvP theme is because so many other people have made custom content for this game that are AvP themed. There was a void to be filled and making non-AvP themed mods allows me to be more creative. However, I still do make the occasional AvP themed file for download.
        The skins I've made were much of my earliest attempts of modding this game. They were fun to do at the time, but nowadays I prefer making themed packs or mods instead of individual skins. As for all the sound packs I've made, they are mostly my favorite movies that I just had to bring into AvP2.
