HowTo / Notes


Z95 won't run on either Win XP, nor Wine. In order to get it to work, a hack is needed.

  • First, insert your CD. The CD's volume label must be Z95VOLUME!
  • Downloads this and execute it using "msiexec /i z95forXP_by_YoMommaNL_1.1.msi" This will install the game from the CD.
  • Execute using Loader.exe with CD still inserted.

However, Z95 doesn't work that well. It's terribly slow and the mouse lags a bit. These issues are also present when running on XP while using this patch. Also, the minimap isn't shown and no music can be heard. The DOS version works a good deal better, use DOSBox for it.
