It seems to me that you've either not mounted the iso correctly or tried to
run the game using the normal .exe file. Use the "Runme" file for an english run or you'll get a similar message. If this doesn't help I'm all out of ideas.

Smile Re: Game runs perfectly.

It works fine. Thank you very much for your help.

BTW, after I complete each episode, at the end of the final intermission text, the text is in German. How do I get it to display the text in english?

" File intortx1.dat does not exist"

After mounting the iso start the game from your virtual c drive NOT d.
c:\coldream -> runme.bat

Default Doesnt work!

Hey there!
I hope you can help..

Ive read the posts in this thread and I tried everything but always when im trying to start the game I get the screen with the cold dreams logo in the background and in the foreground "Bitte Starten Sie das Spiel von der CD".
I also tried this in a virtual machine with windows 95 as operating system but it simply doesn work!

Do you know a solution like a total description what to do with the files and what to do with dosbox for getting it to run or a proper download location or something?

Please... I wanted this game for ages...

Perhaps we should ammend this in the review..?

Somewhere a bit higher up than the very bottom of a very lengthy, bulky review, perhaps?
I would read it, because I read. But there's no white space and it looks challenging (maybe that's why I read it?) so that could put people off from getting to the "How to Work this Game" bit.

And include mounting instructions for every game that needs it that doesn't already have it put as easy to understand, as Luchsen has presented it above?
I don't mind doing some gopher work.

Cos people don't really read the dosbox for dummies thing. They only use the forum from the games discussion post.
Granted, it may be that they'll discover the forums and then start using them... But idk.

Even if someone was just out to get the game and didn't read the review, they may check out the game page as it'd be their first link to where they got the game from - us.

Maybe they won't press the back button, but if they want to go into the discussions to ask, there's a chance they'd look at the whole page and see their solution first.

This would mean we'd have to read less game disussion threads every day. Especially if there's a redirect to troubleshooting forum...
It's hard to tell whether a post could be just "nice game", experiences, problems or anything.

It may not be ideal for getting people into the forums, but it'd be useful for the users that just come here for games and less work for us.

@ Luchsen:
Thank you. I allready tried this.

This turns out the error message ''file introtx1.dat does not exist".

What I noticed is in the runme.bat:

append c:\coldream\english

this couldn work out, because drive c is the directory whichs contains the runme.bat, theres no further coldream folder in it but he english folder is there. So when I changed that line to:

append c:\english

this does work out.

Anyways, does anyone know where i can get the german language files?

That's why you should mount C: the path to the directory coldream and not the directory coldream itself.

They are on the CD image CDREAM1.ISO.
