Fable: The Lost Chapters

Fable is a role-playingvideo game for Xbox, Mac OS X, and Windows platforms. It was developed by Big Blue Box, a satellite developer of Lionhead Studios, and was published by Microsoft.

Fable takes place in the fictional world of Albion. Players assume the role of an orphaned boy who realizes his dream of becoming a hero. The choices players make in the game affect the perception and reaction to their Hero by the characters of Albion, and change the Hero's appearance to mirror what good or evil deeds the Hero has performed. In addition to undertaking quests to learn what happened to the Hero's family, players can engage in optional quests and pursuits such as trading, romance, and theft.

Fable was expanded and rereleased as Fable: The Lost Chapters for Xbox and Windows PC platforms in September 2005. The game was later ported to Mac OS X by Feral Interactive.

The Lost Chapters features all the content found in the original Fable, as well as additional new content such as new monsters, weapons, alignment based spells, items, armor, towns, buildings, and expressions, as well as the ability to give children objects. The story receives further augmentation in the form of nine new areas and sixteen additional quests. Characters such as Briar Rose and Scythe, who played only minor roles in the original game, are now given more importance and are included in certain main and side quests.

What works

Using a version modified of the game

Fable: The Lost Chapters – [Tiny Repacks] that allow you to install and directly launch the game without the necessity to mount CD or DVD

The game is playable after few tweaks. See in what does not work

If you use a different pack, look at : that might be useful.

What does not

Be careful you will need to install videos codecs for be able to launch the game! 

The symptoms of no codec are no intro video, and an error message telling that your graphic card is not compatible

error 0x80041xx from memory or the Unable to play video. Please check that your video and audio hardware are working correctly. Error Code: 0x80040241

the wine console will report a an error on video files.

As a solution you can install codecs like K-codec in wine

But I get the best results with LAVFilters

If after installing the codecs you are able to the the intro videos of the game, you will be able to play !

Mouse could be a little bit slow due to the capture --> I didn't looked yet for a fix.

Game crashes 1 time without explanation since I tried it, do regular saves :)
