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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
