I've just recently installed the widescreen fix. I encountered some problems, but resolved them. Hoping these comments will be of use to others.

As of now the wsgf link is working for me, but the download is incomplete. It has a bunch of exe files to choose from, but no data files. Without the data files, the game will crash as soon as you try to open the world view.

A patch on sourceforge contains the data files (google zeus widescreen sourceforge) as well as exe files, but the instructions are rather confusing.

What worked for me was:

1. Back up the original zeus.exe and data folder (always back up first!).

2. Replace zeus. exe with the appropriate zeus.exe (in my case 1920x1080) from wsgf.

3. Get a data folder corresponding to that resolution from the sourceforge patch. (There are multiple versions of the patch in the download. It does not matter which version you choose, because they all have the same data folders. Just make sure that you pick a data folder with the right resolution.)

4. COPY the contents of that folder (38 files) into the game's data folder, choosing to replace files when prompted.

Note - DO NOT replace your original data folder (which contains over 200 files), just COPY as described above. If you replace the folder, it will be incomplete and the game will not run, giving the fonts error reported by the last poster.

I had some serious problems with this game running without patches but was able to find the problem. The bink videos and the game somehow need each other, at least on my rig.

1. Download and install the bink player from the website http://www.radgametools.com/bnkdown.htm/url]
2. Go to the bink folder in your zeus poseidon folder and set the videos to play with the bink player.
3. Now the files here [url=]https://sourceforge.net/projects/xjdhdr-random code/files/Game_related_files/City_Building_Strategy_Games_Series_files/[/url] Seem to properly work, while as before it would crash unless it was in windowed mode.
4. You only need to copy the resolution folder your screen has and install the DATA and zeus EXE, you dont need the INF file like I though I needed if you can run the game in fullscreen mode without Crashing.


Note: Trying to uninstall the videos would still cause the game to crash if I tried to run it in fullscreen. This fixes that problem.
