Missing Text Fix (Windows 10)

Postby RyanFialcowitz » 21 Dec 2017, 09:32

I tried the Microprose Magic the Gathering 2010 Custom Installer ISO and though it installed Smiling Spectre's ACT Fix much of the text is the game was missing. Turns out that Windows 10 doesn't support the method the fix used anymore.

After some research I found that all the fix does is use Microsoft's Application Compatibility Toolkit to apply NoGdiBatching to the game's executables.

So the exact same process can be done with the Application Compatibility Toolkit's replacement, Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/w ... oyment-kit) . Although when installing you have to check the box to download/install the Application Compatibility Toolkit.

After that you just follow this helpful guide I found: http://www.abandonwaredos.com/public/ab ... nstall.pdf

And then the game works great! I hope this helps!
