Manalink 3.0 Installation

Postby stassy » 09 Feb 2012, 17:17

These are latest info on Manalink 3.0 installation - Aswan Jaguar said:
- This installation 30/7/17 is made to serve new users get Manalink3.0 working because with the patches that have been removed it is almost impossible to install Manalink3.0 (it took me around 6 hours to make this working) :shock:

This is a full Manalink3.0 installation (updated only till fate reforged) for new users that install for the first time or don't have installed any of the last 2 updates (Battle For Zendikar v2 or/and Eldritch Moon v2 if you have installed any of the last 2 updates don't download this and install it, this is older and will ruin your installation)
When the new update comes, hopefully in winter you will need only to patch that update and the new cardart.
Shandalar (adventure part) doesn't work at all with this patch.

Latest instructions on Manalink 3.0 setup can be found here.

Obsolete and older installation processes | Open
As n fully and completely clean version of Manalink is in order, here are several versions that work and should be playable :

Moderators suggest you use one of these first two listed (and it doesn't matter which), but others are included for those interested in past versions. After you have downloaded and installed the base game, go to the patches folder here, find the latest patch (should be pinned at the top), and follow instructions (unzip the patch archive into the program folder in the install directory with virus scanner turned off, as it gives a false positive). Also remember to follow instructions for downloading the card art at the bottom of each patch post.

Hi everyone
i'm trying new things and this is one of them.
Manalink ver 3.0 date 2012-09-16 V3 (Same Version of CirothUngol, in fact! he make all the job... so, you should thank him)

this version was split with kamaleon 2.0 in 2 parts without be related (for that reason, mediafire don't block the files) and you need kamaleon 2.0 (but, dont worry is easy, and I made a video tutorial

Kamaleon 2.0

Download, extract, launch Magic.exe and you should have everything to get started.
There is to note that in order to play some cards you need to beat the Challenge mode (Duel>Gauntlet>Challenge mode checkbox>Number of opponent set to 12), there are walkthrough that show how to beat them in the Deck section, cheats are not allowed to be posted.


Original V3 version by Gargaroz now obsolete | Open
Gargaroz version :
http://www.mediafire.com/?yjvd3cvb3cl6am0
This version is more recent with more bugs fixed and less clobbering files, however is missing the card artwork images and system files
Ok, so here's my current folder, updated until the latest patch, Manalink 3.0 (and probably beyond, as some bugs related to that patch are already fixed here).
I've purged almost all the unnecessary files.

No card artworks included, but be advised that I'm using Snacko's new "CardArtLib.dll", so if something isn't working, you probably have rename your "CardArtNew" to "CardArtManalink" and/or to install vs2010sp1 redist: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/de ... px?id=8328 for dependencies.

Also check Snacko's Dll thread here : http://www.slightlymagic.net/forum/view ... =56&t=5708.

If this is too complicated for you, just use the "CardArtLib.dll" that comes with the latest patch : http://www.slightlymagic.net/forum/view ... =85&t=6284. Doesn't overwrite all, just replace the DLL, otherwise you'll lose the bug fixing I mentioned above.

Final warning : some antivirus (like Avira and Malwarebytes Antimalware) signal the "Magic.exe" as infested by a worm. As far as I know, this is a false positive due to the particular structure of Magic.exe. I checked both my PCs and they're clean of malware and similar stuff. Plus, Mediafire has his own antivirus and reported nothing.

http://www.mediafire.com/?yjvd3cvb3cl6am0

Saibei, you could use this as base for your future versions, if you like.
For both version, if you experience crash on win7, be sure to check the DEP compatibility mode in the Magic.exe file properties.

If you experience crash on Vista : be sure to disable your antivirus or put it in their white list (for Avast, put it in Suspect Action Agent white list).

thanks for the hint... I'm a step closer now, but still can't play. when i start a duel the game crashes and in the deck editor is no art...

after trying to replace the art.dlls and cardArt-Folder without any result I'm starting to feel a little dumb. after deleting it all i just downloaded the "CirothUngol version" again, please give me a step-by-step guide for incredible hard task [-o< (bittebittebitte)

you cant start up just deck.exe it will crash. you can do it inside of magic.exe though just fine. if your running windows 7 you must setup your DEP and add the game to its list so it wont crash the game.

I am using the CirothUngol version. It was real simple to download and uncompress with .rar and play. It is truly awesome thank you everyone. I really only desire Alliance and before and I believe I have about 90 per cent now. Are there plans to finish those out? Also is there a better face maker software, then orginal is terrible. Thank you everyone!

don't get me wrong, now (I worked on MSCVP100 and DEP) it is like:

1. I unzip :D (wow, looks like the older folder)
2. I run magic.exe :mrgreen: (sit ludos incipiunt)
3. I try to run a duel -> game crashes :shock:

and this again & again (cur hoc est fieri mihi?)

sadly, this is so absolutely not "unzip -> ran magic.exe -> :mrgreen: "

but have a look at your own: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMU8ZpL1M_Y&feature=youtu.be

I'd suggest the game crashes because it can't find it's program files the way you have the folder structure set up.

The normal installation folder structure is: C:\Program Files\Magic\Program\

You have to remember this is an old 16-bit game it's somewhat fussy about where it expects to find it's program files.

Download, extract, launch Magic.exe and you should have everything to get started.
\
AH AH AH ! Funny joke ! :lol:

And... NO!, it don't work at all.
When i click on magic.exe, error message is "magic.exe is not a valid win32 application" :roll:

I've uncompressed CirothUngol in a folder, and then copy-paste it in the good place.
The game is in :
c:\program files\magic\program
It's ok.
So I've installed C++, then it don't work again. :?

After that :
I try to parameter DEP, but it don't work again (on windows XP). :|

I uncompressed Gargaroz version in a folder.
I copy-paste Gargaroz on CirothUngol version (and remplace somes files).
I systematicly click on magic.reg
Now, it near to work.
Magic.exe launch but there is no words in the game (just only card images). 8-[

So I copy-paste CirothUngol on Gargaroz, and then... IT WORK ! [-o<
I play a lot, and after that, I shut down the game.

I click on magic.exe one hour after and then : "magic.exe is not a valid win32 application" #-o

I copy CirothUngol again and replace some files, it don't work again.
So, I just open the CirothUngol archive, and only copy-paste the magic.exe.
And now, it work again !!! :shock:

I just precise I didn't reboot in the process (I didn't wanted because I was using internet for something else). :mrgreen:

You should have, for some case the game work again when reboot is done.

It is not recommended to merge folders because it's more difficult to help you

if you run into the problem again it sounds like you have an antivirus program blocking your app. if you have something like avg antivirus then you should add it to the whitelist.
