Re: Progress and Healing ?

Good thing this forum survived for so long, right? :D Have fun playing Drakan! The best attack and defense is a circle strafe for both air and ground with Rynn. So true. And that made the game quite hard to play back in the days, when I only had a gamepad with a directional pad and no joysticks. Rep...

Re: Game size question

For whatever reason, Windows 10 doesn't display the audio tracks in the explorer (even though Media Player can play them) so the 423MB is probably just the data track.

Re: Game size question

My Drakan folder is about the same size as yours.
I guess it's smaller than the CD because the CD contains a few drivers and Earthlink (whatever that is) and DirectX installers which are not copied in the Drakan folder.

Re: Hey all

Yeah, I'm currently re-playing through the campaign (slowly) but I haven't even tried to start a multiplayer game.
Actually, I don't think I ever tried this mode...
A shame because it looks like shooting at each other while riding dragons could be fun for a bit. :)

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Re: Drakan OOTF Control Problems and Window Weirdness *Update*

Oh, glad you managed to solve your problem. I was going to suggest using ACT since I used it just yesterday to fix a problem but you were too quick. :o That being said, when I first played the game as a kid, I don't think I ever used a special attack so they probably aren't that necessary. :lol: And...

Re: Improving Drakan performance, compatibility and audio

Hmm, I just realized that Drakan is quite choppy when I play fullscreen using dgVoodoo2. It's visible when Rynn runs, there is some stuttering and it's quite annoying. :? I tried fiddling with dgVoodoo2's options but couldn't solve this problem. In the end, I stopped using dgVoodoo2 and used the Mic...

Re: Improving Drakan performance, compatibility and audio

Good thing people take their time to develop working solutions. Indeed! :D But sadly, all games don't have a fan base as dedicated as Drakan's so it's difficult (or even impossible) to play them nowadays. But I'll give dgVoodoo2 a try on some of my old games, it looks like it might help with runnin...

Re: How to start a New game on easy Difficulty?

Not a direct response to your question but have you tried installing the AoI patch mentioned here: http://www.arokhslair.net/forum/viewtop ... f=2&t=3765?
With it, I can start the game normally since it doesn't crash at difficulty selection so maybe it could help you.

Re: Improving Drakan performance, compatibility and audio

Waw, I had a problem with getting the game to run full-screen on Windows 10 but this fixed it right away.
Thanks for the tip, this website and forum has greatly helped me to run Drakan on a modern PC! :D
