Pro tip, some people have different versions, and regardless of doing it the "right way" it will not work..
Simply put some people (including me) don't have those files in their game folder.
I have downloaded all the required files, installed 3 different versions of the physics engine, and it does not work. It still reports that it can't locate the PhysX3Common_x86.dll.
I tried copying over the PhyxLoader.dll from the actual physics install director, reinstalled the physics version that came on the ISO I got. I even tried downloading random PhysX3Common_x86.dll, PhysX3_x86.dll and PhysX3Cooking_x86.dll files and placed them in my directory (Oh and restarted my computer many times). None of these work...
My guess, you either 1, purchased the game. 2, downloaded a full version (not a rip). 3, have updated it properly with every patch (apposed to instantly installing the newest version (1.19.0) from the original).
My case, downloaded blackbox (ripped version) downloaded your patch (1.19.0) + the lanfix. Extracted the files using the installer, then copied over the lanfix, (steam + greenluma was previously setup, so I launched greenluma), and tried to start the game. Which rendered the error, PhysX3Common_x86.dll is missing from your computer.
The original blackbox version worked fine, a version of 1.10 I got from my friend worked fine. Installing your 1.19.0 version + the lanfix, does not.
So apposed to insulting people's intelligence, maybe take a chance to realize, they did nothing wrong and your way.. simply doesn't work for all people, or all versions of the game.
