hahaha funny to see how people rage quit from not completing the most easy mini games just tap in rithem with the punching bag its easy just time your punches on the white spot. that means press when you see the white spot! this game is amazing. i played on the xbox 360 and it still delivers. just keep your head cool in prison once you complete it you dont have to do it again. enjoy this game its amazing!! one of my favorites

we need to download 4 files from this site
(I took English only version)

Disk 1
Disk 2
Disk 3

extract all zip files to get ISO images
use a daemon tool to mount disk1 start setup and install.
when it asks for disk2 unmount disk1 and mount disk2 make sure disk 2 is mounted on the exactly same drive. that is when disk 1 was mounted if drive was say... D: you need to mount disk 2 as D: itself. otherwise setup will not detect and install rest. do the same for disk 3. after installing it will ask for disk 1 so unmount disk 3 and again mount disk1 as D: and finish installing rest.

now mount NOCD and run the lmsdtr.exe in it. and browse and select installed game DTRPC.exe and install the crack.


now when you run the dtrsetup make sure that in graphics settings Vertical sync is none / default. otherwise it wont display properly.

You know what, ANON, when you can't complete some stupid mini game once or twice, then it's fine, because later you beat it and you move on. But, when you stuck for 30 minutes straight and you can't beat one mini game... well, then it's says a lot. And no, that is not my problem, it's the game's problem. You see, when I download an FPS game, third person or first person, I expect it to be just that, an action game. With straight up action, maybe some stuff that you need to collect, maybe some stealth or something like that, but the rest is pure action. But, when the game has "action" name of a genre, but it stops you at the start and forces you to beat mini game that you can't beat for 30 minutes straight, then that's the problem. That is why I don't like this game. Sure, I wanted to play it for a long time, but again, I don't like when video game stops me from moving forward, just because you have to complete one broken mini game inside it to move on. And I love video games, I love action games, but only when they do it right. And this here ain't it.

Little harsh don't you think DeathCold ? I did not have any issues with the mini games. Even on other systems. The game is pretty easy and fun to play. One of my favorites. I had no issues with the mini games. I don't know why you did. But to remove a game based on that reason. Is a bit over the top. You are either good at something or you are not. Everyone plays differently. As for the game itself i love it. And the sequels are just as much fun. Maybe you should try them DeathCold before judging. Not all of them are the same. Lol rage quit lol. Maybe you need to relax. And try it when your not in a rage :D

So I played this game and got to the level in the prison with those mini games, and I must say that those mini games forced me to rage quit because, that one where you have to punch a bag in the rhythm took too much time and if you can't complete all of the mini games, then you can't progress further. And that is why I stopped and removed this game from my hard drive. Like, it looks fun at first, but after this game starts to throw those bullshit mini games, you don't wanna play it anymore. So yeah, because of the mini games, this game sucks. And I see why it is abandoned. Because it is failed to deliver. Because, if I see an action game, then I want from it just that, an action. No mini games, no other bullshit. Just pure action. So yeah, I don't like this game and I'm not gonna check out it's sequels.

Nice! Your websites guys is just a freaking golden mine of cool old games. I'm registering now and gonna get every game from your website from now on.

About Dead to Rights game. It works almost fine on Windows 10 x64 22h2. "almost" because there is some lags at some levels here and there. But in general, it works just fine. I beat the first level until the prison level, and gonna play the rest of the game tomorrow.

The game works great in win10 in winxpSp3 compatibility mode, then I will test it on Linux ZorinOs, which in my experience has been the easiest distro to install win games, using wine(playonLinux).

just an update - it's because i had it set to run over 60fps that the fire extinguisher bugged, setting it to 60fps fixes it.

nin808 2023-01-30 0 point

I got it installed and running w/ the widescreen patch. but it's bugged at the propane tank in the first level. doesn't pick it up, so you can't throw and shoot it.

Does anyone have a clean install RIP? I'm not willing to infect my PC with StarForce to replay this game.

Alex 2022-05-07 0 point

Nice game

Anyone know how to run this game properly? I keep getting a "Copy Protection System" message whenever I try to launch the game.

So here's a super fun fact about this game.

This started as a prequel to Escape from New York.

Faqeeryar 2021-03-14 2 points

It's a very good game

Hi! Does the problem with the controls only apply on controllers? or does it affect keyboard too?

NFSRETRO 2020-11-13 0 point

If you can get in on consoles/emulation go with that instead, much better controls and widescreen options not to mention no EAX sound issues like PC version.

Hey, Alex. I tried to play this game earlier this year, and I can say that control settings is the problem of poor port. Originally game released on consoles in 2002, and then was ported to PC in 2003. I had a lot of troubles trying to play it on PC, had to use gamepad.
The only way to remap the buttons - use Microsoft DirectInput Mapper, as it's mentioned here
I suggest to play second game instead Worked much better on my old laptop

Alex 2020-10-31 1 point

The control settings do not work.
