How to play original Z on WinXp/Vista/7?

Hey Z Fans!

I decided to make this short instruction for those guys who want to play original Z on WinXp/Vista/7 without the hassles and reading the forums.

1. Download iso of the game with Antares Patch: (400 mb with cut scenes)

2. Burn on CD or use some software like Alcohol 120 to create virtual drive. Then run setup_zxp.exe from C:\Program Files\Bitmap Brothers\Z

3. In case you have troubles you can try fresh Antares 1.7 Patch:
or Meeky Patch:
put them in the game folder.

In case you have weird graphic scheme in the game, try running WinZMod with the following key:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Bitmap Brothers\Z\WinZMod.exe" /xga
or the window-mode with the key /w3d

Special thanks to Antares and Meeky for making the old great game work on the new machines!
Z and only Z1
