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.

Additional Comments

Game plays with some extra work. I gave it a gold rating because the only thing required to get it to work was a few DLL overrides. Here's what I did: 1.) Download and install Windows Media Player 9 according to the Wine entry in AppDB, . Be sure to add the overrides for devenum.dll and quartz.dll too. Test it with a WMV movie if you have one hanging around. 2.) Download and install the Windows Media Player 9 codecs. 3.) Find a copy of d3dx9_36.dll, copy it to the system32 directory, and add an override. I did this by downloading directx_aug2008_redist.exe, using cabextract on it, and then using cabextract on Game works great for me, with the exception of the upside down tree and shadows. I disabled shadows in the menu and the tree really doesn't seem to be a problem. I did not have to use Winetricks.
