Setting Windows XP compatibility on the executable might help.

I can't get the (Subs) text to show.

Not a problem whilst we have Voices
but I believe there are parts San Vox ?

Use a virtualized Windows XP, tested with VMware Player and that's fine, sin there is localization in different languages, does anyone know if there is a way to change the language in the game?

simply make a batchfile in the game directory with:

@echo off
taskkill /f /IM explorer.exe
PlayWin.exe
start explorer.exe

then start the game with this file and it should work fine on Win7 (64)


(I also changed one line in the book.txt file into:

SaveDir=.\W4\_SAVES

so that the game saves in the game directory.)

Got a second working link to replace the dead one -- size is 100Mb+ smaller than that of the file whose link DDNI provided though. Dunno whether this is only due to packing reasons or if it is a different version (possibly since DDNI's link is titled as "Repack")
