Hello, I'm having issues with playing the game. I installed the game, but it is not allowing me to download directx. I do have the directplay thing enabled in legacy features, so I don't think I need it. Anyway, once I try to launch the game, it changes resolution going into fullscreen, then changes back and the game doesn't launch. Any help at all would be appreciated!

If you have a problem with the .mdf file then you have to change the file extension to .iso and unpack it with Bandizip or 7-Zip or ImDisk Virtual Disk Driver, it works for me

Frank 2019-06-01 0 point

There is nothing inside the zip. only some files that I can't open or run.

where is the hod3Launch.exe?

Andrew 2019-04-19 -1 point

Wish I could help, Anne, but that is a unique problem I never bumped into. I would assume you would have to install DirectX but I'm guessing you have already done that. You might need to Google about it. Don't put "House of The Dead 3 DirectDraw Init Failed" but instead put the problem in by itself. Other people might've suffered from it from other games and there might be a global fix for it somewhere.

Hi, I have a problem, when I follow Andrew's instructions, and I try to open up the launcher, a message that says "DirectDraw init failed. The sample will not exit" appears. I'm not a English speaker, and I'm not a technology person, sorry for all the mistakes.
Can somebody help me, please?

i successfully mounted it and installed it but there is a problem saying that "cant init hal device" what does it mean and what do i do? :C

Okay, when you download the file. You'll be given an MDF, MDS and DS_Store . You need to mount the .MDF file, I use Virtual CloneDrive to mount .MDF files. It will be the biggest file in the folder.

Once you mount the files, you can access the game's files like you inserted a disk. Run hod3Launch.exe that will open up the launcher. Install the game and if necessary, install DirectX while you're at it. After you install the game, you should be able to launch it.

If you're not satisfied on how the game runs, go into the GRAPHIC SETTINGS of the launcher and you should be able to change resolution, max framerate, the graphics, etc. If your game is running slow, lower the texture quality and turn off anti-aliasing.

At this point, you should be able to play the game. Have fun.

It is a good website to find the old games, in fact I am 12 years old, when I was 7 or 8, I played, the house of the dead 4, I had a trauma after playing the game, today I remembered the game and the 'I found on this site even if it is not the fourth.

good game

Dogo 2018-05-31 -1 point

I played this game on the arcade and the Wii version too! It is fun, mindless zombie-shooting action that won't take itself seriously. There are multiple paths leading to different levels, so replaying can be a different experience every time for a while

finally! i get to play this game!
