How to play Marvel Ultimate Alliance Windows

Read Full Description

The game with NoDVD has been tested on Windows 7 64-bit and Windows 10, works with no problem. You may experience some troubles during first launch of the game, check our Notes

Install & play guide:

  • Mount the ISO image of DVD. You will need the utility for mounting disc image files, like WinCDEmu, UltraISO, Alcohol 52%/Alcohol 120% or Daemon Tools Lite
  • Launch the installation (if autorun doesn't work - simply launch the installation from Setup.exe inside the disc)
  • It is recommended to install the game not in default path, but in some other, non-system folder, like C:/Games/Marvel Ultimate Alliance, so you won't have troubles with NoCD or fixes
  • Finish the installation. After you installed the game - install NoDVD, simply copy Game.exe from the archive and put it into game folder, agree to replace original file
  • Also make sure that you enabled DirectPlay if you didn't make it before, read this or this guide how to do it (if you're using Windows 7 or older - just install DirectX from the disc)
  • Open the directory with the game and find Game.exe. Right click on Game.exe - Properties - Compatibility - Set "Run this app in compatibility mode with Windows XP" and "Run as administrator"
  • Launch the game and play. If the game doesn't work in compatibility mode with Windows XP - try to launch it in compatibility mode with other version of Windows (Win98, Windows ME, Win2000, etc.)


  • If the installation doesn't start - try to launch Setup.exe in compatibility mode with old version of Windows (98, 2000 or XP)
  • Your antivirus may trigger on NoDVD file because there's several "cracks" for this game with similar file names and sizes. However, NoDVD on our website is totally safe, it showed 0 warnings on VirusTotal scan. If you antivirus blocks it - add that Game.exe file in antivirus exceptions
  • NoDVD is required for the launch because the game is using SafeDisc DRM protection, which doesn't work correctly on modern systems. That NoCD "breaks" DRM protection and allows the game to work on modern systems
  • It is recommended to install all versions of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable, and NET Framework for the correct work of the game
  • Also it is recommended to install RAD Video Tools and K-Lite Codec Pack for the correct work of in-game videos
  • The game works on DirectX 9, so if you're using Windows 8, 8.1, 10 or 11 - you need to enable DirectPlay: Go to Control Panel, and select 'Programs'. Select 'Turn Windows features on and off', click on 'Legacy Components' and check the box 'DirectPlay'. Select OK, once the installation is done, restart your computer
  • If you launch the game and it doesn't start (just black screen), do the next steps:
   - Open Registry Editor (launch regedit.exe)
   - Go to `Computer/HKEY_CURRENT_USER/SOFTWARE/Activision/Marvel Ultimate Alliance/Settings/Display`
   - Right-click Resolution and click Modify
   - Input your Desktop Resolution (for example, 1920x1080, click OK and close the Registry Editor)
   - The game should now launch properly, you will need to do this only one time after installation
  • Also, that way you can run the game with display resolutions that are not available in Options. But note that the game engine doesn't support all resolutions, so if the game started crashing after you changed the resolution in Registry - revert the changes
  • If in-game cursor stucks in the corner and doesn't react when you move your mouse - just go to Options (use keyboard arrows) and disable Vsync (switch from ON to OFF). That should solve the problem, after that you can enable Vsync back, if you want. However, if the problem still appears - keep Vsync disabled, also check for Vsync settings in control panel of your video card
  • The game has controller support, but gamepads of some brands can result to the crash of the game. It is known that Saitek gamepads crashes the game, so if you have Siatek gamepad - unplug it before you run the game. Also, make sure to unplug gamepad if you have similar problem with other gamepad models
  • Sometimes when you install the mods or translation patch the game can show ???? signs instead of text, or another "broken" symbols. That may happen if mod or translation patch is using some fonts that the game cannot recognize, in that case use Fonts Fix, simply run REG-file to fix broken fonts and then reload your computer
  • The game has support for cooperative mode up to 4 players, you can play it locally on one PC by connecting additional controllers (like 1 keyboard + 3 gamepads). Also, before you could play the game in online cooperative, but the game was using GameSpy servers for multiplayer, and GameSpy service closed years ago. Currently, you can play the game in online cooperative via LAN emulators like Tunngle or Hamachi, or with some of unofficial GameSpy replacements, like OpenSpy
  • Don't forget to check PCGamingWiki page if you have any troubles

@TRISTAN "When I try to copy the NoDVD version into MUADVD\Setup\Data"

Are you trying to put that file inside DVD? You should put that file in the folder with INSTALLED game, not in DVD! After that the game will stop asking for the disc, that's why that things are called NoCD/NoDVD

I could use a bit of help with getting the game to open. I've completed installation in a custom path on my PC's D:\Drive and can open the launcher for the game just fine. When I try to copy the NoDVD version into MUADVD\Setup\Data to overwrite the game.exe while it's mounted, my PC tells me this:
"There is not enough disk space on MUADVD. You need an additional 4.46 mb to copy these files."
I'm not sure of a way to circumvent this or if I need an application not mentioned in the instructions above to help me overwrite the game, I'm just following what is on this page as I've never tried installing a NoDVD game before. I've already tried using some of the different mounting applications listed here, any suggestions on what I can do to get one of my favourite games running on my PC would be much appreciated.

Great game, works perfect and easy to install. Also downloaded the extra characters from Been playing on local co-op with my son

For anyone planning to play this game with a controller and you realize the buttons are mapped incorrectly I recommend this mod, it worked for me (I use an Xbox One controller):,11191.0.html

This game is my childhood man. I played it on ps2 and ps3 with my cousins, but never on windows. I trust it will be as good as I remember it :)

This is absolutely a great game!

Highly unlikely we will get those, since they were Steam versions. But the version they have here works on modern systems. The Steam version only had a few extras that aren't that big of a loss.

Any chance we might get the Marvel Ult Alliance 1 & 2 2016 versions?

PCGAMER90 2024-02-15 1 point

Oh my gosh thank you! I love you guys! Been looking for this game for years. Had a ISO version but it would not work. The MagiPack version you provide here however, works FLAWLESSLY on my Win 10 laptop. Cheers, and may this site live forever!
