Shorah Charura,

Over on the MOULa forums, folks have been reporting that running in windowed mode is the best workaround available for now. No clear indications of the cause or cure just yet.

Thank you Ainia for the nudge. Guess I'll run it in windowed mode for now :geek:

I've played Uru:CC on two Windows 10 laptops with two different ATI graphics configurations. Both ran fine. No problem at all, except on the second one the game refused to load the highest resolution textures until I reset the drivers to default values. No idea what happened there.

What kind of graphics card/chip does your computer have Charura?

There's a tweak that can be done to play it in fullscreen. It's a discussion between some guys of the community on the GOG.com forum.

Here's the link: http://www.gog.com/forum/general/uru_no_more_working_on_windows_10

I'll try both ways to see which is my preferred one :)

Thanks, I just ran into this issue on my ATI card. I got a readable error message instead of a stack dump in my case though.(it said to turn down the graphics settings.)

On Windows 10 you have to disable AA in the Uru Launcher, or the game won't start. But I've run into another problem; Vsync doesn't work anymore. I get insanely high framerates even with Vsync turned on in the driver. I've got the same problem with ALL directx8 games, directx9 games are fine. Apparently Microsoft thinks old games don't need Vsync. :x Anyone knows a solution? (other than using a framerate limiter)

I'm also having problems running Uru CC on Windows 10. Tried to run in windowed mode, disabled anti-aliasing, doesn't work. I know some are reporting stack dumps and that kind of thing, I'm not even getting that. I start the game, on the setup screen choose my profile, and click 'Play' and nothing happens. I did get an alert to run as administrator, so I did, but once I do that, it just does nothing. Seems to quit the moment it starts.

Any ideas?

Edit: I stand corrected... I'm able to make it work now. But for future twits, I recommend trying to install Drizzle, and the NoCD patch. Seriously, that's all that was needed. Silly me.

Yes, I have heard that Windows 10 rejects cetrun forms of DRM.

Uru and Uru CC, with or without Drizzle, don't works anymore on my Windows 10 Family x64 PC.
I run them with NoCD patch installed, with Windows XP SP3 compatibility, as administrator, with anti-aliasing turned off ; for Drizzle versions, I have installed the Drizzle version of NoCD patch.
Nothing works ; I can't test anymore the Ages that I'm building...
Have you got this problem?
Any ideas?

PS: I start the game, on the setup screen I choose my profile and click 'Play' but nothing happens, it seems to quit the moment it starts.

Also, feel free to use any idea from this folder for MO:UL (currently 2 ideas).

My curent work around is to install a dual boot:
- Windows 10 with auto update :arrow: normal system;
- Windows 10 (Version: 1607, Build: 14393.447) without auto update (Windows Update disabled, ethernet enabled only when needed, & a very good antivirus suite) :arrow: alternative system.

For now, it works.

:shock: Uru works again now!
I just checked "Disable full-screen optimizations" in the shortcut properties...
+ Uru runs with max sounds selected, fullscreen (1280x960 for me), max quality everywhere, and anti-aliasing checked (turned on)! :shock: :roll: :o :D :P

Hi.

I did some test today and wrote an installation process (because I have several memory loses).

On Windows 10 Family x64, Version 1703 Build 15063.608


I) Ages Beyond Myst


- With the "Ages Beyond Myst" CD:

- Install the game in "C:\Uru".


- Without CD:

- Copy the files from the "Ages Beyond Myst - NoCD patch" into "C:\Uru" by replacing the existing files.
- In the shortcut properties, in the compatibility tab, check "Run this program as admin".
- Finish the game.


II) To D'ni


- With the "Ages Beyond Myst" CD:

- Install the "To D'ni" expansion pack in "C:\Uru".


- Without CD:

- Copy the files from the "To D'ni - NoCD patch" into "C:\Uru" by replacing the existing files.
- Check in the shortcut properties, in the compatibility tab, that "Run this program as admin" is checked.
- Finish the expansion pack.


III) The Path Of The Shell


a)


- With the "Complete Chronicles" CD1 (& CD2):

- Install "The Path Of The Shell" expansion pack in "C:\Uru".


- Without CD:

- Copy the files from "The Path Of The Shell - NoCD patch" into "C:\Uru" by replacing the existing files.
- Run "SoundDecompress.exe".
- Check in the shortcut properties, in the compatibility tab, that "Run this program as admin" is checked.
- Finish the expansion pack.


b)


- Uninstall Uru.
- Install the G.O.G. version of "Complete Chronicles" (Version 2.0.0.5) in "C:\Uru".

- In "C:\Uru", in the "UruExplorer.exe" properties, in the compatibility tab, check that:

- "Replace the high PPP scaling behavior." is checked;
- "Scaling performed by:" contains the "Application" selection;
- and that "Run this program as admin" is checked.

- Check in the shortcut properties, in the compatibility tab, that "Run this program as admin" is checked.
- Finish the expansion pack.


All other cases in the files properties are not checked.
And you know what, the 4 versions I tested (ABM - CD, To D'ni - Patch, Complete Chronicles - 2CD, and Complete Chronicles - G.O.G. Installer),
with ultra sounds selected, fullscreen (1280x960 for me), max quality everywhere, and both cases checked,
runs well... And they runs better than they did on Windows 7!

Edit:

IV) Drizzle: The Path Of The Shell


- Cut "C:\Uru" and paste it into "C:\Users\Your User Name\Saved Games".
- Uninstall Uru.
- Cut "C:\Users\Your User Name\Saved Games\Uru" and paste it into "C:".
- Rename "UruSetup.exe" to "Uru.exe".
- Copy "Drizzle31.jar" to "C:\Uru".
(- Run "Drizzle31.jar", in the "UruAgeManager (UAM)" tab, select "Language -> French or Deutsch" and exit Drizzle.)
- Run "Drizzle31.jar", click on the "Change Server ..." button, enter the "http://www.the-deep-island.de/uru-ages/" URL and validate.
- Click on the "Select ..." button next to "POTS Folder", select "C:\Uru" and validate.
- Select "Load list on startup." and click "Refresh List".
- Download and install "Offline KI", "Age Information", "Official No-CD Patch" and "LanguageChanger", and exit Drizzle.
(- To put the game in French or Deutsch, in "C:\Uru\tools\LanguageChanger", run "UruFrancais-xx(*)bit.reg" or "UruDeutsch-xx(*)bit.reg". *: xx -> Choose the 32bits file if your Windows 10 is 32bit, or choose the 64bits file if your Windows 10 is 64 bit.)
- Run "SoundDecompress.exe".
- Change the shortcut properties to choose the "C:\Uru\Uru.exe" target.


V) Uru Live again


- Install the game in "C:\Uru Live".
- Copy, if necessary, "msvcp71.dll" and "msvcr71.dll" into "C:\Uru Live".
- Finish the game.


VI) End Of Ages


- Install the G.O.G. version of "End Of Ages" (Version 2.0.0.9) in "C:\GOG Games\Myst V End Of Ages".

- In the shortcut properties, in the compatibility tab, check that:

- "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" contains the "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)" selection;
- that "Replace the high PPP scaling behavior." is checked;
- and that "Scaling performed by:" contains the "Application" selection.

- Finish the game.


VII) Drizzle : The Path Of The Shell + Uru Live again + End Of Ages


- In "C:\GOG Games\Myst V End Of Ages", rename "eoa.exe" to "MystV.exe".
- Run "Drizzle31.jar".
- In the "Simple Conversion" tab, choose "C:\Uru" for "POTS Folder", "C:\Uru Live" for "MOUL Folder", and "C:\GOG Games\Myst V End Of Ages" for "Myst 5 Folder".
- Click the "Start" button corresponding to "MOUL Folder", and when finished, click on the "Start" button corresponding to "Myst 5 Folder".
- In the "UruAgeManager (UAM)" tab, download and install "Myst5/CT Improvements", and exit Drizzle.
- In "C:\Uru\avi", delete "direboWithAlpha.bik" and "mystWithAlpha.bik".
- In "C:\Uru\SDL", modify "Personal.sdl" by making a copy of the last version (29) at the end of the file, change the version number of this copy to "30" and edit the "Calander Pinnacle stuff" lines by changing "DEFAULT=0" to "DEFAULT=1" to get the "Sparkies" without need to get the month "Sparky".
- In "C:\Uru", run "SoundDecompress.exe".
- In "C:\GOG Games\Myst V End Of Ages", rename "MystV.exe" to "eoa.exe".
- Finish the game.


VIII) Import and test the Ages that I'm building.
