Hi.

Recently decided to install ParaWorld again, after a long time.

Installed ParaWorld.
Restarted Computer.
Installed Booster Pack 2.0
Installed Windows 7 Fix
Launched the Booster Pack Shortcut (crashes)

I entered the CD - Key fine, but after it just almost immediately crashes.

Thanks in advance!

7-Zip fix? You mean Windows 7 fix?

How does it crash? Freeze? Closing without message?

Same thing. Should I try launching in compatibility mode? I doubt it would work though. Also, thanks for the help. Surprised I got replies because this game is more or less dead.

Nope. All of them do the same thing.
For clarification.

Screen goes black (like it's forming full screen mode), followed by crash with error/warning and then I manually have to close it because the initial launch is stuck in the middle of my screen.

Edit: I solved the problem.
I read somewhere the Booster Pack and Windows 7 Fix had to overwrite the other files. Since they didn't do that firstly, I extracted them to Desktop and overwrote them later.

I also installed ParaWorld *not* in the Program Files (86x).
I even set the compatibility mode to Windows XP (Service Pack 3).

However, I played a quick few games because I didn't have much time, but now since I start it up, I can't click Campaign, Skirmish, Load Game or Multiplayer.

Any idea why?

Edit: Fixed. Restarted computer. Will test again if it starts stuffing up.

Also, my computer is absolute trash, and I am looking to run ParaWorld on the highest settings (and resolution). Is ParaWorld CPU based or GPU based?
Any recommendations on parts?

Currently.
CPU: i3 530 2.93 GHz
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4300/4500 Series
RAM: 4 GB

Thanks again!

So you did not install PW/BP2/Win7fix correctly? Glad you've solved it :)

Paraworld should easily work on modern computers with highest settings - just try it out. In CEP/Mirage you can even set the FPS to 60 in the options menu (will also work for normal game but it does not have that option by default, standard fps is 45, god knows why).

The thing is, I don't think I installed it correctly. I didn't install them. I just installed the files somewhere else, and overwrote them.

I can't launch SDK or Booster Pack. Only standard. Basically the standard edition of ParaWorld. I don't want to play with fire and mess around with it again, but the same time, I would like the community bonuses.

Re - installing at the moment. If it doesn't work, I'll install Team Viewer.

Edit: Never mind, fixed it. Can launch Booster Pack now. Re - installed it, again.
Thanks guys!
