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

When I get the error err:module:import_dll Library d3dx9_25.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\Fable - The Lost Chapters\\Fable.exe") not found, I've copied the d3dx9_25.dll file from a Windows XP SP2 installation, then I tried to run the game again, and looks like that works.

What does not

The fonts are corrupted, the game run slow and I get various glitches in the game. Instead of chars, rectangles are shown, making it impossible to read anything in the game.

Workarounds

What was not tested

I did not try to install game direct from Wine in Linux, i got my previous installed version from windows partition.
