Hi All,

I bought & downloaded Caramgeddon yesterday, (24th June 2013) it installs and plays absolutely fine under dosbox, so I thought I'd try downloading the Win95 patch.

However when I try installing the patch I get the error "Installed version is not compatible with the patch"

My environment is :

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, 8GB RAM, ATI video card.
One thing worth noting is that Carmageddon is installed to g:\games\carmageddon and not the default directory.

Cheers.

Phill.

Our release contains the DOS version by default, complete with both software and 3Dfx/Glide rendering modes. As you may know, however, Carmageddon also came with a Windows 95 patch.

Because this version has got problems with some ATI/AMD cards, as well as not-so-stellar multiplayer support, we do not want to make it available as an actual part of the release itself. This version will allow for higher resolutions, most likely better framerate, but may also be unstable on some PCs, or not work at all.

Basically, we only support the actual DOS release available in the installer and, if you want to try the Windows version, you do it at your own peril. ;) Just to clarify, the patch does not replace the DOS version, so it's safe to use - there's just no guarantee that it will work better than the default version, or at all.

You can download the patch here. We strongly recommend installing it by right-clicking the file and selecting "Run as Administrator".

Also, let us know in case you encounter problems with it, or if it works perfectly for you. :)

Especially take note of the "Run as Administrator" thing. ;)

Yep got the patch tried running as both normal user and administrator, under both it fails with the following screen :


Like I said, freshly installed package to g:\games\carmageddon, patch file doesn't seem to find it.

Cheers.

In the Install dir, in the CARMA dir even failing the install he created the files to run the Windows version, run the file CARM95.EXE it worked for me, even with the same install error
