Description of Evil Days of Luckless John

Description from the publisher:

John is indeed luckless. Everything he ever started turned out to be a major disaster. Until one day a distant relative dies, and the only heir of his profitable casino is, of course, John. Is he going to be lucky this time? Already thinking about the money that is supposed to pour in, already thinking about spending all his future riches, suddenly reality strikes back at John - again. The Mob wants to get their hands on John's Casino. Being already responsible for the death of the former owner, John's appearance makes them very unhappy. It looks like John is in big trouble. At this point, the player takes control of this beautifully designed graphic adventure and has to make sure that John will lose his nick name, or die trying.

How to play Evil Days of Luckless John Windows

NoCD has a moderate detection ratio, use it at your own risk. Instead of using NoCD we recommend to play with disc image mounted in virtual drive.

The game has been tested on Windows 7 64-bit, works with no problem

Install & play guide:

  • Mount the disc image. You will need the utility for mounting disc image files, like WinCDEmu, UltraISO, Alcohol 52%/Alcohol 102% or Daemon Tools Lite
  • Install the game
  • Optionally install NoCD
  • Go to the directory with installed game and create desktop shortcut (Right click on engineen.exe - Send to - Desktop (create shortcut))
  • Launch the game from the icon on your desktop, play. If the game doesn't run - right click on icon - Properties - Compatibility - Set "Run this app in compatibility mode with Windows XP".
  • If the game doesn't run anyway - open Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del by default) and check for processes wow.exe and rundll32.exe. Close wow.exe but don't touch rundll32.exe (it's a Windows app for running old apps from 32-bit operational systems, most old games running through rundll32.exe). Now try to launch the game again, it must work. Don't forget to close rundll32.exe process in Task Manager after finishing playing.

@OSCAR. Setup only has russian language. You need to download the Disc image, which also has english language option.

I installed the game after downloading the setup thing. Is there a way to easily change the language? Or should I download the game in a different way?
