Re: Prince of Persia V1.3's crack does not load saved games

Sorry about the delay. I was talking about this particular version from the "Prince of Persia CD Collection".

Re: Introduce Yourself Questionnaire (20 questions)

1. How did you find this forum? Searching information concerning a DOS POP1 version issue on startpage.com 2. Why did you join this forum? To confirm a problem someone else was having, right after I found what I had been searching for. 3. What are your main hobbies? (besides PoP) 70's and 80's micr...

Re: Prince of Persia V1.3's crack does not load saved games

Hmm, I don't think I have experience the sound detection issue myself, unless you're talking the alternative v1.3 setup tool that I mentioned in my first post, but now that you bring it up, I do have some vague recollection regarding a broken installation problem, yet from centuries ago, so it could...

Re: What is the best version? What are the diffrences?

The vga graphics on the DOS version are about perfect. Not too cartoony, not too realistic, they look just right. No vanity and no superfluous, cluttering details either, yet is dullness effectively avoided through a variety of rather fitting color schemes. The sound samples, you can't beat them! un...

Re: Prince of Persia V1.3's crack does not load saved games

Thanks again David, very neat trick! Now I'm pondering on something I read the other day; is it true that v1.4 somehow runs better (more stably?) on newer computers (well, late 90's tech anyways) with faster cpu's? just asking, seeing as you seem to be familiar with the inner works of the exe's.

Re: Prince of Persia V1.3's crack does not load saved games

There is a way to patch v1.3 without the bug: http://forum.princed.org/viewtopic.php?p=13476#p13476 (inside the quote) Thank you David! :cool: works like a charm. Somehow I managed to miss that thread. I'm also taking the liberty to share an exe with your fix hexed in for those in need of a drag-an...

Re: Prince of Persia V1.3's crack does not load saved games

Confirmed. The only available crack for v1.3 does indeed make loading saves impossible, yet it has nothing to do with the save file itself. Even DosBox's debugger throws a bunch of nasty warnings when you ctrl+l during the intro screen, and that it does not when you're running vanilla prince.exe, wh...
