Have you tried the Creatures Remastered Patch? It allows addon apps such as the Genetics Kit to find Creatures 2.

Oh! I was under the impression that it did not work with the GoG version. Let me give it a shot.

It sorta works now (unstable but manageable)! Thanks!

I've used it myself with the GoG version - I'm glad it worked for you! :D

Hmm is there a way to keep the gen kit from crashing when you select a gene? I can create new genes and edit the organs but whenever I select an existing gene I get the "Gen Kit C2 has stopped responding" and it closes.

How do you select the gene? Single left click and 'edit gene', or double-clicking the gene?
Where is the gene file stored?

Single left click crashes it, path to the gene files is: C:\GOG Games\Creatures 2\Genetics

And the Genetics Kit is installed at: C:\Program Files\C2 Genetics Kit

I'm not sure if it will solve anything, but I've found that installing the GOG versions of Creatures under Program Files can create random issues. I uninstalled and reinstalled in My Documents, and that made things a lot stabler! I'm also running on Windows 7, and I can use the C2 Genetics Kit without any problems. Of course, reinstalling is the biggest pain in the world, and maybe someone else has some other thoughts!

Do you have the specific genome and gene that crashes the program? Have you tried different kinds of genes to see if it's just one type? I know that's not a whole lot of help, but hopefully you'll have it up and running soon!

Unfortunately reinstalling in My Documents did not fix it. :( Is there any alternate download for the Kit? Maybe there is a problem with the one I downloaded from the archives seeing how it crashes with every single genome.

I created a complete listing of all correct (and working) links across the entire Gameware Europe domains. The short story is that the old sites were ported over, retaining a lot of broken links. You can find information about the C2 Genetics Kit (but DO NOT click the download link) here and the correct direct download link can be found here as a .exe file. Hopefully that will do something to stop it from crashing every time. Let us know how it goes!
