the original will always have its own charm, but I thought you guys should know there was a fan remake made:

This is the greatest Lego game of all time.

I LOVED LEGO ROCK RAIDERS, a video game tie-in to the playset that sadly flopped after just one year, i remember those sets i used to have those Lego catalogue magazines, and those were heavily featured on it but since 2001 they disappeared, I remember getting demo disc of this game that was bundled with "Heinz ketchup" pack as part of some weird LEGO promotion. this game is a very addicting real-time strategy game, made by “Data Design” which shocked me consider they’re infamous for making lots of god-awful shovelware garbage games on the PS2 and Wii like “Ninjabread Man” and “Anubis II”. But this game was a fluke, it’s a really good game.
Thankfully I finally got this to work on my pc. Like everyone else I did follow the Rock Raiders community tutorial how on install it, yes before I used the patches I tried to see if the game will boot up at all. My PC is pretty old a 32-bit system from 2010. The installation was quick, but the original EXE will not work at all even with the compatibility setting changed, apparently the "d3drm.dll" file that come on the disc is outdated. so I got alternative “exe” and “dll file” replaced the old ones, and game will finally work, but the cut-scenes, music will don't work and the framerate and performance is horrible, so I used the dgvoodoo2 program and it not only fixed the performance and framerate issues but the cut scenes and the music issue working normally now. the only real issue I had was the tutorial black screen bug, the form say it some sort of a camera script error that causes the screen to go black despite the hud and menu working fine. It’s thankfully only on the torrential section and not main campaign. Also depends on what pc you're playing it on, the older it is you might have less issues with it. The later ones always some bug or crash will happen due to the finicky game engine those old Lego games used and outdated compatibility settings. But if you can bypass all those issues it’s a great game.

I cannot get it to work properly without the tutorial going black, the hud is fine, just the game screen itself (where the action takes place) goes black.

For anyone who sees this, there is an independent developer remaking the game and its branded as "Manic Miners"
I have played it through a couple times in different stages of development and I can attest it is true to the original. Highly recommend checking it out. even includes the flying transport as a useable vehicle.

The d3d file you have to manual download and add to the windows root under program files

If your game does nothing after installing and trying to open, use these 2 guides

Io ho la copia fisica per PC di questo gioco e giocarlo è stato bellissimo, spero che facciano pure il 2.

You need to use a program to open up the .bin file, or you can burn it to a CD

doopliss 2018-05-13 3 points

first up, these boxes need to be a darker blue or something.... ANYWAY, can anyone confirm if the random crashes have been fixed? like is there a patch that loads the game onto ram instead of the cpu?

I downloaded the game, but I can't find any setup files to actually install the game. Did I miss something or is just incomplete?
