Here is RC1 of new installer.

This installer will installs full Game with "no cd" option and hades 1.1

Changes that were made to original files,

1. All 512x512 gifs changed to 256x256

2. mpr97.dll, mpr555.dll, mpr565.dll files updated for hades 1.1

3. no cd trek.exe, test.wav, language folder and files added for no cd function

4. installer creates backup.res files for installing mods.

5. All original patches add to update to 1.0.2 (no patches needed)

6. Ultimate Editor added to start menu

7. Stbof.ini edited for no cd and hades settings

Note: none of these changes should effect multiplayer game play when playing against cd\iso install version



HOW TO INSTALL

Step 1 Uninstalling
first you should uninstall any mods.
next uninstall game
if botf folder was not deleted by uninstaller, delete it now.

Step 2 Installing base game and backups

yes it can be edited, but gowron has removed this file from his shared files. and I do not have it.

for english install:

open trek.exe (patch exe) with any hex editor.
search for "BOTF" change BOTF to BOPE and save. there are 2 places this must be done (0x174357 & 0x17b09f)
replace trek.exe in install path of BOPE with edited trek.exe.

for german install:

open trek.exe (patch exe) with any hex editor.
search for "BOTF" change BOTF to BOPG and save. there are 2 places this must be done (0x174357 & 0x17b09f)
replace trek.exe in install path of BOPG with edited trek.exe.

I am not sure if this would be compatable with other player that have not edited trek.exe in MP games. so you might want to save the installers trek.exe before overwriting.

Why is it Hades 1.1 and not 2.2?

after installing tourney version, main screen in left lower corner reads 9.9.7 that's intentional?
