Menus work perfectly
Gameplay (using hotkeys)
patching to 1.1 (use workaround)
What does not
installation (use workaround)
UI is not vissible so you cant play without hotkeys and some important emelemts are missing which render the game therefore unplayable
Moving elements like the train at the beginning is not visible....
Focusing the game windows in the beginning.
Text is not visible
What was not tested
play long because you cant play long without UI
Install: --------- To install you need to start the install normal and wait till it crashes. Then delete all the content in the installation folder for e.g C:Desperados. Then copy the contents from the Game folder on the install CD inside the Desperados folder. (namely Data Folder and game.pac) Now go into the Data folder and "extract, Autodetect subfolders " all the *.pac archives Now go to the game.pac and simply extract it in the same folder as the Data folder is. There should be now a game.exe and some dlls. PATCHING: ---------- Download 1.1 patch and use unzip x to unzip it. Copy the contents from the Game folder into your Desperados folder and you are set. As the game is not offically installed with registry entries you need to use a no cd fix to play it. For the 1.1 patch to work you need to have msadp32.acm in system32 and set to native.
