16 bit programs, like civ2 can not run on a 64 bit os. It should run in windows 7 2 bit.

In some cases, just the installer(or just the download it self) is 16 bit(many older programs that are 32 bit had simple 16 bit installers), if you run into this, you may be able to extract the game it self with winrar or similar.

I say this because that game does not seem THAT old.

screw it, gonna go download this thing and see what it does.

So far they give me a "dynastywarriors_us_downloader.exe".

Now this is a 32 bit program that is downloading the game.

Time to see what happens. And this kind of makes me want to go get Gunz :)

Did you get the game to run? I am still patching.

Ok well the game with its installer seems to work, but seems to disconnect allot. But it should install and play.

Very strange, guess i will have to play with it some more.

All I did was install it then use the launcher to update. after all that, the game started right up.

So you have not got the game to install yet? I see you have downloaded the installer several times. None have downloaded the full game?

Yeah, I tried several times, I think its the installer thats broken for me, no problem with download at all. Whats strange though, I have been able to play this game on my computer before, and then my computer did something wrong and I had to do a full reset thing reset my computer to be like how I got it in the beginning, Now I can't download it! :cry:  :pfff:

Ok, well lets try to get the file from another source. The free download seems fast too so why not

http://www.shacknews.com/file/21256/dynasty-warriors-on...

I am downloading it now and will MD5 check it to ensure it is EXACTLY like the one the downloader game me.

This will still have to get all kinds of patches after it installs, but its the same with the downloader from aeria games

EDIT.

MD5 seems to match. A28CCB47675D83EA8EB8FAC285A6B356

Hope this works better.

Nuke I, tried downloading this version before, takes a while but It shows something different saying blah blah blah but it says I think about the same thing as unsupported 16 bit application, only it says it like paraphasing. :sweat: 


EDIT : This was actually the first way of how I downloaded the first time, because someone the site linked me to this when I clicked download.

I am kind of at a loss, when I get a chance, I will try it on some other computers to see if I can get it to do that.

By any chance, could your virus scanner dislike this game. It seems many users have reported issues with some like bit defender.

Does the game give you a UAC(dull screen with a DO you want to message) prompt to install? If not try to right click the installer and select run as administrator.

Can i get an image of the new error.
