Is there anyone out there who knows the "Cossacks" games, particularly "Cossacks, Back To War", esp. to the level of getting down into the guts of the thing and playing with the variables?
I ran it very well under WinXP, but my WinXP laptop has a terminal case of being stuffed (the battery refuses to charge, and it's totally dependent on AC power for one; plus, it keeps locking up and strange vertical lines are appearing on the screen). So now I run it under vista, because I must.
It works, but "dmcr.exe" stops working as soon as it starts, and it has to be run from csetup.exe.
Does anyone know of a reliable fix or patch? Yes, I can get it to run time after time, but the mod. included on the BTW disk depends absolutely on dmcr.exe to run. So unless I can find a way to point csetup at the mod version, it's useless!
And also, does anyone know strategy hints and tips? Not necessarily cheats - I know all those already - but things like the inner workings of the AI, how it lays its plans, best sequences to upgrade units in etc.
