[02:19:36] <ShadwChsr> Evening :)
[02:28:01] --> Baastuul_ has joined #exult
[02:29:31] <-- Rottingbeef has left IRC (Nick collision from services.)
[02:29:33] --- Baastuul_ is now known as Rottingbeef
[02:48:49] <ShadwChsr> Has anyone here had much success running Exult in Vista/Windows 7?
[02:49:05] <ShadwChsr> It seems to be writing excessively to Program Files, which forces compatibility mode
[02:49:36] <Rottingbeef> I actually got it to work without a hitch.
[02:49:38] <ShadwChsr> I might be open to helping out with some mods - registering it with Windows 7's game launcher and using AppData/Saved Games folders
[02:49:41] <Rottingbeef> I'm using Vista Home Premium 32-bit.
[02:50:01] <ShadwChsr> It only runs as admin, or forces compatibility mode
[02:50:03] <Rottingbeef> I have a desktop with 64-Bit, but I haven't tried it on that one yet.
[02:50:06] <Rottingbeef> Hmm.
[02:50:16] <ShadwChsr> unless you run the whole thing in your profile (ie/ not installed in program files)
[02:50:33] <ShadwChsr> By default if Vista/7 detects a misbehaving app, it routes all the files to a hidden "VirtualStore" folder
[02:50:40] <Rottingbeef> Yeah, I'm not running it in compatibility mode.
[02:51:27] <ShadwChsr> check C:\Users\youraccountname\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files
[02:51:34] <ShadwChsr> is there an "Exult" folder there?
[02:54:06] <Rottingbeef> Sec.
[02:54:54] <Rottingbeef> Yep, there be.
[03:01:41] <ShadwChsr> Yeah, thats a type of compatibility mode
[03:01:52] <ShadwChsr> It detects when programs write to the wrong location and redirects it
[03:03:53] <Rottingbeef> Tricky devil.
[03:08:47] <ShadwChsr> yeah :P
