  • When the installation will ask for CD2 - mount the disc image of CD2
  • Finish the installation
  • Now copypaste .dll files from fix to the main directory of the game
  • Open the directory with the game and find the gladiators.exe. Right click on the gladiators.exe. - Properties - Compatibility - Set "Run this app in compatibility mode with Windows XP"
  • Launch the game and play

Here's the text guide (on Russian language, use Google Translate) on how to run the game with fix. Here's also video tutorial on English

The fix works on Windows 8 and Windows 10 in most of cases, but on Windows 7 it works 50/50, for unknown reasons (or probably works only for Nvidia videocards). Alternatively, you can try to launch the game through dgVoodoo

Then you should to turn on "DirectPlay" component:
1. Tap Win+R, write OptionalFeatures.exe
2. List "Legacy Components"
3. Turn on DirectPlay and tap OK

You know it's a crack yet you don't realize the number of times these cracks get reported as false positives.

If your AV reports it as some kind of virus, do look into the virus type. A lot of times Windows Defender reports cracks as "Blueteal" but when you go and check they're false positives triggered by heuristics checks (heuristics checks are meant to be a preventive measure against new types of viruses that use known types of exploits)

I tested the game, it is possible to run it without crack leaving the CD2 mounted.
Using DxWnd I got it running in window mode despite the D3D8 engine and a few memory detection problems (the game can detect a negative video RAM if your card has too much memory).

BEWARE: the crack is reported as viral, and it seems a useless risk since the CD1 already holds a cracked exe. I would suggest not to use it, maybe remove it from the downloaded files.
