I did indeed follow those instructions (as long as I can assume that I understood it correctly (I'm supposed to place the 3 reg files directly into the program files folder "MagicTG" correct?)) and the manalink gem is not appearing. I'll try using the white list for my antivirus/firewall. What files do I need to place in there?

Manalink.exe should be enough.

hey everyone. I've tried to do a search through this forum without any luck. Has anyone had luck running Shandalar from this specific MTG2010 ISO in a windowed mode?? I've played this game on and off since it came out in the 90s, but would rather have a windowed mode as switching to another program creates issues because of the resolution difference.

I've tried creating a windows shortcut and adding -w, -window, and -windowmode to the target with no success.
I am currently using Windows 7 for those interested.

Thank you for your time!

I'm afraid Windowed mode is more or less impossible for this distribution; the original executable simply wasn't made for it. There was a windowed mode being worked on by Korath in his mod (unfortunately this is no longer available) but it still didn't work quite right most of the time. There were, apparently, a lot of work that needed to be done in order to accomplish this.

What I've done to get it run in a window is use a Virtual Machine wrapper... run the Virtual Machine in a window, then run Shandalar from the VM. Works pretty well for the most part, the only thing you really need to do is figure out how to set up the VM correctly.
With much cheese,
