Yes! It finally works! I had to remove ddraw.dll from the game's folder, otherwise it would crash at launch. Other than that, runs great!

Thanks Admin, I still needed to go into Config first instead of using the Start launcher. But it worked after that. Made my dream come true!

Just so everyone knows, the newest version of my repack fully works without the disc - I wrote a Powershell script to handle mounting/waiting for the game to exit/unmounting the ISO
Just install and play, no fiddling needed

The repack works 100%. Amazing!

Thanks for the effort Bladez1992.
FYI guys, the PS1 version of this game is usually considered the ugly stepchild. Just note, if you emulate & upscale the graphics via an emulator the graphics look much closer to the 3D Accelerated PC version. I can't say how close because I'm comparing based off foggy memory but just an idea. Don't emulate on default settings, look up some tip videos on YouTube to upscale so the game looks way better than it did on PS1 hardware.

Well unfortunately I tried yet again to get ID working without a disc, and it just isn't gonna happen. If someone that's good with x64dbg or another debugger can make a no-cd patch for it, I can definitely get it re-released! Until then, sadly the only way to play is with an original copy of the disc or through emulation... Hit me up on Discord if anyone has questions

@BLADEZ1992 Thanks a billion, let us know if you are successful.
@C-DUBB & All, the emulation I found with DOSBOX / Win 95 & tested is in the following link. However it won't have 3D Acceleration but, it will have the PDF manual. We will have to wait on BLADEZ1992 to see if he can make the ultimate release.

Going to try to fix ID again, I think the issue is that there are spaces in the install path. I have a feeling if I fix that, it may run.

I can confirm with Filipe that Bladez1992 repack doesn't work. Followed all instructions but still says no CD. Looks like his version did have DGVoodoo for 3D Acceleration. Guess I'll have to stick with DOS box Non 3D Accelerated version for now.

Filipe Tolhuizen 2022-08-14 0 point

The repack still requires the CD in drive. Any fixes for it?

Has anyone got a nocd fix for this yet, its driving me do crazy too

EagleLeader 2022-03-12 0 point

Is BLADEZ1992's repack come with 3D Acceleration? I have seen it run without 3D Acceleration using DOSBOX & Windows 95 emulated. The one YouTuber who did get it to run with better graphics used Voodoo2 emulation but mentioned that 3D Acceleration emulation made it very unstable, crashing too often.

I got the error "no cd in drive" and i don't know how to fix it, I did all configurations of the downloaded folder

C-Dubb 2021-07-16 0 point

I wanna see Inside Independence Day making of software.

Bladez1992 2021-05-06 6 points

I made a fix for this game, a new installer.
If anyone wants to play it join my Discord server and look in the releases section for this download and other classic game fixes like this

I read all the relevant stuff, but it still reads "no CD in drive."

I am currently using DaemonTools to mount a virtual drive.

Try reading the abandonware guide.

macrossMX 2020-07-17 0 point

The game does not run even when mounted on to a virtual drive.
We need a fix to make it playable.

C-Dubb 2020-07-15 0 point

I wonder where I can find a Windowa game manual for Independence Day
