No One Lives Forever – Fixed installers for 64 bit

Just a quick post to let all my hundreds (lol) of subscribers know I’ve just written a simple installer script for the classic PC game No One Lives Forever. This allows you to install the game and the first three patches (patch 4 works without modification) on a 64 bit PC. This saves faffing around manually editing registry entries and figuring out which files to copy from the original CD. I’ve tested this on the original release only (not the GOTY edition since I don’t have access to it). Enjoy this classic game on your modern PC!

    Mother of god, thank you for making this program! I randomly decided to play the game again and found out it was almost impossible to make the game work on a modern machine, but then I found this. Thank you!

    I take it that it worked then 🙂 I’m starting a new project about old PC games on new computers, it’s a work in progress but you can find out more about NOLF over here (including instructions on getting it running in widescreen!)

    Im exited, but, it says i need NOLF installed but i cant run the installer

  5. BuckoA51 says:

    You are running the installer first and THEN the patch, right? 🙂

  6. Russel says:

    ok… it DOESN’T work with the goty edition, when it get’s to the part for the second disc it says that it’s not the correct disc. The disc IS scratched, but I doubt bad enough to cause that. any workaround that I could use?

  7. Russel says:

    nm… goty installed without issue. guess I should have tried it first without the special installer, eh?

  8. BuckoA51 says:

    So it’s not needed for the GOTYE because that’s 64 bit compatible anyway? Duly noted.

    Im impressed!! Thanx for being as smart as you appear to be. good character as well – I was fearful of some DB importing a virus via this fix.
    Thanx again

    Can’t get the 1.03 patch to work on Windows 8.1. When I run it says “Error opening file for writing:” and goes through the files it tries to patch if I click ignore.

    Disappointed. 🙁

    Thank you!
