How does it work? Since this seems to be a common problem with older windows games.

Here's how it works:

Keep in mind that this is Windows 8.1 specific so it will not work on earlier versions of Windows.
The patcher refuses to recognize that I have Descent 3 installed. I did not install it in the default directory, it's on a completely different drive from the default, so clearly the patcher is not equipped to handle this circumstance. What can I do about this? The mouse is so twitchy without the patch I can barely even navigate the menus, and I can forget about playing the game at all.

You can double check the registry entries around [HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GOG.com] and see if the path is correct.

The path is correct, but the patcher still says the game directory is not found.
The patch didn't help me at all.

Says already installed, but ... still horrible
Will I get a response? or not?

Just curious.
You should try contacting support. I'm not sure what's going on.
Hello,
I have the same problem of Onihikage! The patch doesn´t understand i have descent3 installed. "Game instalation not found". But it´s installed and i use it in "xxx:\Games\GOG\Descent 3"
The value of registry "DefaultPackPath" is "xxx:\Games\GOG".

What i have to do to make the patch recgonize the path?
