@marvgeek you need to configure the settings before you can play the game

LRGPNS 2019-03-17 0 point

Yes, it can be run in WINE. Your mileage may vary but I've been able to play the game completely through that way once the sound/graphics settings were correct.

Bear in mind it's a somewhat buggy game even on newer Windows.

Does it run on Wine?

Dunestorm 2019-02-26 0 point

v Codemasters no longer owns the rights to the game, nobody knows who does. Since it was pulled from GoG then I think this is the best option available to literally anyone wanting to play it.

I'm curious, considering the loose definitions of abandonware, has someone asked codemasters if this is kosher? Is there some bit of information I'm missing?

thisguy I think next get an alcohol 120% or any other program to run your iso and install the game, then run patch to patch it.

ThisGuy 2018-09-25 -3 points

I have no idea what I am doing....I want this game back in my life so bad though, can I get a step by step guide because I clearly suck at this and cant figure it out. I downloaded the iso version and the 8MB bug fix and idk where to go from here...

Do you have to have a disc in order to play the game? Because I dont have one...

Kyo 2017-04-09 9 points

You can make it to work with 3dfx:


Win 10 64-bit, nGlide 1.05 - no crash, no black text.

Xavier51 2017-04-01 2 points

Yes it works for Win 10. I've got it working on Win 10 x64.


- You must rename the intro video (main.mpg) in the:

Codemasters\Blade of Darkness\Data\video

Folder. Otherwise, when you try to run the game, you may see an error due to the video being unable to play.

You will likely need the openGL renderer. Otherwise, you will only see black text. Game will run, but you will have no idea what options you are selecting.

The DLL which is in the zip you download, must be copied to the:

Codemasters\Blade of Darkness\Bin\Raster

Folder. Then, you will see rOpenGL as an option in the video list.

You will be able to play in a small window, or full screen.

I don't know how stable this arrangement is, but at least it is a start.

Can i run the game with Windows 10 ?

MD 2017-01-23 0 point

The game is not from UK, it is spanish.

What is the best 'setup' for this on windows 7?

marvgeek 2016-10-04 0 point

I got it working, but when i tried to download openGL to fix the black text, i still don't see openGL in the settings options

marvgeek 2016-10-04 -4 points

Do you need a disc for this? I got it installed, but when i click the icon the play game option is there but i can't click on it like a disc is missing. help?

I made a video for this good game :D

LRGPNS 2015-09-25 0 point

The black captions thing is a bug with the DirectX renderer. Unfortunately there's no perfect renderer solution for the game, but this version of the OpenGL renderer, while not crashproof, seems to be the generally best solution:

I cant see the highlighted text in the menus. All captions are black... Is something related to the resolution? Also, although I have gore activated, I dont see blood spillings.

Any english version yet?

admin 2015-01-16 1 point Windows version

True, ISO was supposed to be in English and Russian, but it's heavily modified to be full Russian. Trying to find the English version.

john 2015-01-14 2 points Windows version
