I did everything "N" said in his comment and the game was running fine. Now when I open the game all I get is a black screen for 1-2 and the game crashes. I also put the ddraw.dll in the folder with the .exe file but it still doesn't work. Even if I delete the extracted folder, delete it and extract the original winrar folder again it doesn't work. I didn't change anything outside the game tho so I am kinda confused? Anyone with a similiar problem here?

Nevermind, I'm silly and searched inside the dll...

@dwarf, which file do you mean exactly? There's no .dll in the github.

Put the ddraw.dll file from here into the directory of the game (with the exe file):
https://github.com/narzoul/DDrawCompat

And the game will work properly without any compatibility settings changing on Windows 10 / 11

Did they upload a demo of the deluxe version? It works fine for a while and then just stops running.

someone knows how to download the version where the store door was a circle and the loading screen was a mage staff? It was the Gold version, I think. Is the version of the screenshots, but different from the download links

Hey, N, I did all the instructions you said and the game does indeed run fullscreen now. I went to the dgVoodoo2 website and followed the instructions. The game runs smoothly now, but all the graphics are messed up. It's all a white, pixel-y mess. I'm not sure what I did wrong. I found out that it's the "D3D8, D3D9 (etc" DLL files that make the game run smoothly, but this also messes up the graphics.

Using Windows 10, was able to get this to run with a few tweaks.
- Right clicked on the EXE and under the compatibility tab, set to run in compatibility mode for Windows XP (Service Pack 3)
- Checked the box for "Reduced color mode" and chose 16-bit (65536) color
- Checked the box to run program as administrator

To get it to run full screen, edited the BraveDwarves2.ini to have "Fullscreen = 1". This made the game laggy (it was running well but small before) so I followed instructions to use dgVoodoo2 to make the game run smoothly. If you google dgVoodoo2 you can find the last stable version; follow instructions on the site, but it's basically just downloading the file and then copying several .dll files into the same folder as the Brave Dwarves 2 EXE.

So happy to have this game back in my life! Such a nice blast from the past :)

Just a suggestion for those who make the pics: not against posting the pics of your native language but it would be good to have a few english ones.
