Well, I thought I'd try the old Broken Sword games again, for the pure nostalgic fun of it... Everything went well at first, Shadow of the Templars (BS1) and The Smoking Mirror (BS2) are working fine in ScummVM. Broken Sword 2.5 installed without a hitch and runs perfectly fine as well. But then I got to The Sleeping Dragon (BS3) and things went horribly wrong.. The original cd took minutes for the autorun to get recognized and the setup to get started, and so far during several installs the setup breaks off with an error message of being unable to continue setup, and in some cases it even caused several programs to lock up and my system to stop responding to most commands. Some things still worked, but I was unable to end any processes and was forced to reboot. After a couple of tries with Compatibility modes, it all just came down to the same result. After having so many problems with the disc and setup I tried ripping an iso and using UltraISO's virtual drive to give the install a try, since from what I read Daemon Tools causes severe instability as well, and i had UltraISO installed, so it was the next best thing. But I couldn't even get as far as the setup screen anymore and the system got even more unstable. With a downloaded iso as well. I tried unpacking the iso and installing from just the files, but then I get a few WinRAR processes strangely enough which lock up everything. So, unfortunately the same issues that plagued this game in Vista persisted through Win7. It was to be expected, but it was worth a try to get it work. And so, after much ado and a lot of trying, the only ways I've found that it'll work is: 1 - if you install it in XP and crack it and then copy the files over to Win7. 2 - buying it off gog.com for $5.99 where it's DRM free Oh, and Angel of Death (BS4) also installs and plays just fine, without any real problems. I hope this helps anyone who wants to play any of the Broken Sword games again.
