Install Nolf 1.000 from CD
If you have this cover, then you're the "lucky" owner of a 1.001 version of the game. First of all... a common advice when installing a older game on a newer operating sytstem such as Windows 10, is to avoid installing it into the Program Files directory or the 'C: drive' if you have a second option such as 'drive D:'. These areas may be more protected from older "Unknown" game coding and may prevent them from running at all. Microsoft does not seem to care all that much for older games.
You may run into several problems when installing this version when using windows 7, 8 or 10 due to a old and unsupported windows 98 16bit installer.
The "work around" method for this is a 32bit NSIS installers made by BuckoA51.
This installer will allow you to install the game from cd
(I lost my first edition of NOLF and have not tried installing with this program myself)
After downloading, unzip the installer and run it: Insert nolf cd1 and hit Agree
You can choose if you want the installer to create a desktop shortcut here then hit Next
Click Browse if you want to choose a different install location, hit Next
Installer will create a start menu folder,hit Next
Then installation is running and you will have to swap to cd2 when the installer asks for it
This is as far as I got since I don't have the earlier versions of the game anymore.
After the installer completes, you'll need to update to v1.003
Update from v1.00x to v.1003
This installer have the same problem as the game installer, so another "Work around" was deviced.
This installer contains the update in English, French, German, Spanish and Swedish language
THis installer will search for nolf.exe and find the game folder by its own (tested)
Here we go again, click I Agree to begin
My nolf installation is located on G:\NOLF, so that is correct.
And we're installing the update
I fooled the installer a litte and extracted the update to a different folder to see what it unpacked
Files are the original english nolf 1.003 update and the other languages are located in folders
To install these copy everything in the desired folder and paste the files inside the nolf base folder to replace
The guy who made the installer forgot to remove a few files it seems. NoOneLivesForever-patch1.nsi is the actual installer script, it doesn't add anything it shouldn't add
All the files that are red can safely be removed. But this is a optional step.
The installer is complete, v1.004 next...
Update from v.1.003 to v1.004 (Game of the year)
Tired of updating yet? don't worry. We'll get there
The official update actually work with newer versions of windows, so no problems here.
Download and run the update and click Ok
And we're installing..
Since I don't have a older version of the game anymore, I cannot complete this installation, but it should just install and be done
Next, you would want to set both Lithtech.exe and Nolf.exe to run with administrator privledges in order for them to function properly
Otherwise, they will not have the rights to write information to the game's registry key
