Hello Troops, i´m new

Post by KOMMANDER » 2008-04-11, 15:43

Hello from Germany

I played Z as little boy 8 years ago.
I lend the game from a friend, but then he lost the CD :(


Now i found this great site and the board. It´s very nice to see other gamers who still play Z.
I have already downloaded a lot of patches, cracks and the shared game (splited in 6 parts at rapidshare.com)
Today i will try to install (hope it will run)

I´ve already searched in eBay for the expansion pack, but i can only find the normal single player game.
Is there anybody who knows, where i can get the expansion pack (Download, or buy) I need German Versions.

Am i the only member from Germany??

i´m sorry of my poor english... i will improove soon. :cheers:

Hi
Actually, the Germans are quite well represented nation in here, it seems. And don't be sorry for your English, it's easily comprehensible.

Last Saturday and Sunday i tried to install and run the game:

-I extracted my downloaded ISO to a new folder
-After that i started the setup.exe
-The Game installed without errors
-I also was able to start the game until i saw the menu (i wasn´t able to read it, because it was spanish or something)
-Then i changed the file "z95.exe" with a downloaded one, which was smaller (1.8mb instead of the original 1.98mb i think)
-After that, the menu was english :D
-I was able to change details, and all that stuff
-There was also a multyplayer menue (i guess, that the expansion pack was already within the ISO)

Problems:
-I can´t start a new game
-I can´t replay the first level
-when the first map loads, after 3 seconds a message appears (but i can´t read, i only see a black window and hear a "beep")
-after pressing escape, i return to the menu

Questions:
-What is the difference between Z and Z95 (gameplay, menu, graphics,...)
-Can anybody help me with an ISO (german version) of the game?
-When do i need a DOS-Box and when am i able to play the game in a normal window?
-What must i do to run the game (burn the ISO on CD?/ apply no-CD patch?/ play in DOS-Box?)


(I´m not stupid :( , i just cant run the game and i´m getting crazy reading all those different threads over DOS-Boxes, patches, cracks and programms :shock: . Im tired of downloading hundreds of useless upgrades and programms, which are all the same damn shit and dont worke alone and also not together :x )

So, please, can anybody tell me a simple way with 3 or 4 steps to run the game? :|

1. go here and download the version of Z95 SpaceOne put on rapidshare
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=242
2.Download Antares patch.
http://zzone.lewe.com/index.php?option= ... &Itemid=62
3. install the patch
4. mount the iso in demon tools <but don't install the game>
5. run zxp.exe from the folder the patch is installed in.
6. enjoy

Work perfectly fine for me <XP OS>, the voices are in English, the menus are in German.
. No dosbox equilibristics required
