##### SFC Vol 2: EAW Windows 10 Help
« on: January 08, 2019, 06:40:33 pm »
Hi everyone,

So i think I’m getting close to being actually able to play this game, but I’ve run into a few challenges:

1.) I’ve installed patch 2.036 (in order to install patch 2.037), however, when I try to install patch 2.037, it says the “files have already been moved” and asks me to delete the batch file. Does anyone have any idea?

2.) I followed the instructions to make the screen bigger, by modifying the .ini file, but when I launch the game, although the intro is full screen, it quits the intro halfway and displays the main menu at a tiny size, with black all around it. Does anyone know how to address this on Windows 10?

3.) Sporadically, the game will quit and tell me I need Direct X 6.

If anyone has any experience with the above, and/or overall how to make this thing run well on a Windows 10 machine, I would be extremely grateful for any help!

Thanks, everyone!!

Here's the text of the Install_2037 batch file:

Code: [Select]
@echo OFFTITLE Starfleet Command 2.037 PatchECHO.IF NOT EXIST sfc2.ico GOTO ERROR1IF NOT EXIST 2037.ready.txt GOTO ERROR2ECHO Updating strings...ECHO.MOVE aaStrings.txt assets\stringsMOVE quicktips.txt assets\stringsMOVE strings.txt assets\stringsMOVE shipnames.txt assets\stringsECHO Updating specs...ECHO.MOVE shiplist.txt assets\specsMOVE ftrlist.txt assets\specsECHO Updating sprites...ECHO.MOVE sprites.q3 assets\spritesDEL 2037.ready.txtGOTO END:ERROR1ECHO Directory Error! "Install_2037.bat" must be in the game's root folder.GOTO END:ERROR2ECHO Files have already been moved. Delete this batch file.:ENDECHO.ECHO Finished.PAUSE
The only way to get that message, Jonbre, is by running the batch file twice. Your operating system may have refused to move some files because they "came from another computer" and were therefore blocked. If so, just move the sprite, specs, and strings files manually to the associated asset folders.

Your 2.037 splash screen should show the old SFC1 splash screen with Empires At War displayed in plain font: http://www.dynaverse.net/forum/index.php/topic,163396632.msg1123056434.html#msg1123056434
