I bought The Rise of The Triad: Dark War v1.2a or 1.2b CD-Rom in 1997 and it worked.

I want to try some Rise of The Triad Add-ons. I tried installing ROTT: Dark War from the same CD today and I ran into a lot of problems. I tried using DOSBox 0.74 too and that didnít work.

Iím using Windows XP (Something about 2002) Service Pack 3 if it makes a difference.

Can anybody get Rise of The Triad: Dark War to install? I will be busy for the rest of today (Saturday) and I will respond tomorrow. If everything works out, then I will install the patch from http://www.3drealms.com/downloads.html .

Oh, I had almost forgotten. I have not tried WinRott yet. I will try it tomorrow.

I appreciate any help.

I haven't tried installing 1.2 but I can't see why there would be any problems. What kind of problems are you suffering? Have you tried running it under VDMS? Sometimes when things don't work under DOSBox for me VDMS seems to do the job.

As far as WinROTT goes; lots of people seem to like it and it certainly holds a lot of promise but I find it really unstable. I use XP SP3 as well so maybe that has something to do with it. The game runs fine for me under WinROTT but very often when I try to load a save-game the controls are frozen and I can't play the game. Also, I can configure my keyboard controls the first time but every time I try to enter that menu again the game crashes back to the desktop. Neither of these things have ever happened to me with the original ROTT so I reckon it's definitely a WinROTT thing.

If you do try WinROTT let me know how you get on... Smile

I think I know what happened. I've gotten it working now. If you have the same version of the ROTT: Dark War CD and it isn't working, then send a private message to Schabbs from http://wolf3d.darkbb.com/ or to me with your email.

Thanks but it's cool. I've only got the GOG (Good Old Games) registered download (version 1.3) and it all runs fine. Thanks for the offer anyway. Smile

Can I ask what the problem was with the install of your CD? Just curious. It may also be good to post it here just in case someone else has the same problem. Smile
