  1. For those wondering how can we play the game – my advise is to install a software like alcohol 120% which enables creation of a virtual disk drive…

  2. where is setup.exe? I’ve definitely got the right download but can’t find it anywhere. mounted the CDs and tried running the install from CD one, can get the installer started but it freezes before actually installing anything.

  3. First off it you do not have the smarts to play a cracked game then your should by it off ebay.. Trust me all these game can be purchased.
    Here’s how to get the game to work.
    First of dl the first game if you do not have a drive emulator .
    Extract the files.
    Then go download this crack and drop it in the game folder over writing the existing .exe file.
    Here is the link and the password is “lonebullet” remove the ” ”
    If you are running windows 10 make sure to have directx installed or most of these old games will not play without it.
    This game requires MSXML 4.0 and windows 10 does no come stock with it. SO dl it here and install it or you will get a MSXML error upon loading the game.
    As you can see it works here is a screenshot of it loaded on windows 10

  4. Once installed and with the CD1 image mounted, the game won’t launch. It opens the first screen and then… nothing. Anyone else havng this issue?
