it doesn't seem to be just a phenom II problem. might be an amd problem in general. i have an amd a10 7850k and the game crashes to the desktop even before arriving at a cutscene. black screen whileloading and suddenly i'm back at the desktop.
which somehow speaks against your "minimum requirements" since the 7850k is on par with the fx 4350, including support for sse4.x.

Hey guys, I was able to find a workaround fix for this, for those of us with the AMD Phenom II/SSE 4.2 Issue. Despite what some have said, your hardware is most likely more than good enough to play this game! Here's the workaround and how it came to be:
Let me know if you've had any success or issues. Enjoy the game!
(Edit: Thank you to whoever approved this and let the post go through)
This fix works. I went through the troubleshooting process before finding this fix. The intel emulation is the solution and the intel link is legit. You will have to use this solution anytime you play Unravel 2, but it's worth it. Not sure why EA can't patch this. Game now works as good as it does on my other lesser PC.
hi, my command prompt says 'sde' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
i dont know if thats normal, but either ways, it didn't work. now my game crashes at the first cutscene and force closes rather than freezing into a black screen
BTW, i'm completely sure i followed the instructions correctly, ive tried leaving only command prompt and unravel2.exe open, exiting steam, and other clients, etc.

Hey. Sorry for any confusion, I'll do my best to help you out. If it's not recognizing SDE as a command, I don't see how it would've changed the outcome of your situation since that file is not actually getting run. The original problem reported at the very start of this thread (and in the title) was about that game crashing at the first cut scene. My memory is bad and I don't have the AMD machine I used with me to confirm if my issue was right at the cutscene or where yours originally was beforehand, but I'm pretty sure it was the cutscene.
Since it's not recognizing the SDE command, it really sounds like one of three things;
1) You're not in the same directory within the command prompt that the Intel package was extracted. Make sure it didn't extract to a subfolder. The installer package comes with a subfolder within it. I failed to mention that in my instructions and you should manually move it from the subfolder it creates into your UV2fix folder or rename it to something short just to keep it clean, since the subfolder has a long awkward name to type in. Alternatively, you can navigate to the directory it creates as is (with the CD command) if you prefer. Either way, it has to be run from the folder the files reside in. I had forgotten about the automatic subfolder until I found the old screenshot).
2) Less likely, you might not have extracted the package and just have the downloaded file sitting there in that directory still zipped up. Make sure you didn't grab the Linux or Mac version by mistake (the download page lists all 3 lumped together).
3) There could be one tiny thing off in your syntax (i.e. make sure you didn't add the pound signs and just added the required numbers in place of them, only leave spaces where it shows, and of course don't add the quotation marks). I did that a couple times myself at first based on the other game's instructions from the Steam thread. It's easy to do.
It should look like this:
sde -attach-pid 8104
The 8104 in that example will be a different number for you, which will be your own unique PID.
That screenshot is using a different directory name that the one I suggested in my original
instructions in case there's confusion; that's just what I originally used.
There you can see the annoyingly long sub directory that the unzipped file created.
Let us know if you were able to get it working and I'll update my original instructions so no one else is confused!

I have an AMD Phenom II X6 1100T processor which is more powerful than the AMD FX 6300. The game does not work because my procesor does not support SSE4.1 / 4.2. EA_Mai does not understand this. Just recompile the game code .... Who has to do it? fans ?? This is pathetic!
Share the source code for this game and the next day will be a working version on Phenom. You are just lazy ....
Or maybe you have a contract with equipment manufacturers to more sales ??? :/
I do not want to replace the processor with a weaker model.....
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T
16GB DDR3 RAM
GTX 1060 6GB
SSD 512 GB + 3TB
which is stronger than recommended. (the only problem is the lack of support for SSE 4.1 / 4.2)
