Re: patch for game

Can you tell us what the file type is (or what the file is called) and what platform you run the game on?

Re: patch for game

I suspect in the zip file will be a program that you can run which will patch the game in its installed location.
Can you extract the files from the zip file and have a look? Might also be a text file with some instructions in it.

Re: patch for game

hi adiewoo [ or any-one else who can help out]
back again like a bad penny.
am playing a game that almost definitely needs this patch that i have down loaded. it was mentioned in the literature with the game. that it would eliminate bugs  and/or help with any ati graphics.
i opened it up and unlocked it and the wizard stated that it was installing. over in a flash.
however the game is stuck. it refuses to show an icon needed to proceed. therefore wish to know [1] has it installed into the game from the desktop icons.?
[2] is it my system that is at fault.? pc by the way  3.0 ghz 512 ram 2 cd/dvd drives.
that last game was broken sword the sleeping dragon. it was old but very good. quite exciting but hard to do in places. kept getting shot.  Roll eyes

Re: patch for game

Yeah it looks like the right patch that can also be downloaded from http://www.broken-sword.com/.
When you say it's missing an icon do you mean there is something missing to start the game or there is something missing once you are in the game?

Re: patch for game

GM. i also seen the patch elsewhere. seems  to be the only one. the game is on its way but anna maria sometimes appears in the inventory and sometimes  on the action and  then she is not showing in inventory. in this case i need to speak to her to hold a switch in an off poz so that george can pass by live wires. have made all necessary moves but she won't show.  she should be on the action . no sign of her elsewhere.  ....very annoying and fed up now. thanks.  Huh
