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 does not

The Game

The Game first threw this error when it launched:

err:module:import_dll Library d3dx9_25.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Games\\Fable - The Lost Chapters\\Fable.exe") not found
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Games\\Fable - The Lost Chapters\\Fable.exe" failed, status c0000135

I managed to obtain a copy of d3dx9_25.dll from the internet and then imported it into the system32 folder, which gave me this error:

fixme:midi:OSS_MidiInit Synthesizer support MIDI in. Not supported yet (please report)
fixme:atl:AtlAxWinInit Try use native atl.dll if possible
wine: Call from 0x10001028 to unimplemented function MFC42.DLL.6467, aborting
err:seh:raise_exception Exception frame is not in stack limits => unable to dispatch exception.

I also tried to import atl.dll and MFC42.dll to the system32 folder, but the game would not get past a Fable splash screen with a window saying there was an application error "005D".
