Driver 2 has been one of my favorite games of all times, It's Driver 1... but BETTER! and for its 20th anniversary developer Liquid Soap has released to the public the reversed engineered Driver 2 for the PC!

Remember this game did not have a PC version.

Instructions are very simple and easy to follow:


Game version information

1 - Installing (Windows)
  • Dump both of your Driver 2 CDs to ISO or BIN/CUE file (use CDMage or UltraISO)​
  • Extract game ISO or BIN/CUE to your folder (next referred as <your_folder>) on hard drive (example: "D:\Games\Driver 2") so it will look like this

  • Download the latest release and extract it to <your_folder> (example) (result)
2 - Retrieving game video and audio

  2. Run jPSXdec and open your CD1 ISO or BIN/CUE file​
  3. change Directory to <your_folder> on hard drive​
  4. In bottom of jPSXdec window open dropdown menu and select All videos and push Select...​
  5. Repeat previous step but instead select All audio (excluding video audio) (graphic example)
  6. Click Save All Selected and check if AVI and WAV files are going to be saved, then hit Start (graphic example)
  7. Repeat steps for CD2​
After you've done all the steps
