To open 7-zip files (7z), you'll need a program such as Z-zip or Winrar. I will be using Winrar at this time.


The installation will replace a couple of files such as Lithtech.exe,, defctrls.cfg. If you worry about breaking the game, you could make a copy of the whole nolf folder first. I have no issue running both versions though.


Right click the newly downloaded file;



Browse to where your No One Lives Forever installation is located. Mine is in a custom location (G:\NOLF). I just tagged the NOLF folder.



Then hit extract


Overwrite when asked, and you're done with installing


You may have to set compatibility or run nolf.exe as administrator in order to save settings ingame as well

I never had to do this but I hear others have struggled with this.


Right click NOLF.EXE and choose Properies, then choose Compatibility



Make sure to set compatibility to Vista, not XP


Now start the NOLF launcher and hit Advanced



Click Customize



Then add Modernizer on the right side by double clicking it on the left side



Check the Always load these reziles and hit Ok


Update is now loaded, and you can start the game.
