OK now fixed. It threw me a little because Grey's patch referred to already having TCC installed, whereas TCC needs the patch installed first, but I used the sequence of Grey's patch, then TCC & this worked. My initial issue of the warded door has also been fixed with the reinstall. Thanks!

SO guys as per previous post what is the sequence when using Greyface's patch with TCC: each looks like it has to be applied before the other?

OK just to confirm: it's the 1.2 patch that won't install at this stage, haven't even got to Mok's patch yet. Greyface's patch indicates v1.11.1, whereas the mod needs to go on top of v1.2 - and I can't patch it to 1.2 So does Greyface's patch also update to v1.2, or at least to a version that the m...

That would be great except that I can't reinstall the game at all.

I could try Greyface's patch I guess, rather than Mok's patch. I used Mok's patch only as that was what the instructions said, but will the mod work over Greyface's patch too?

Hi guys, playing TCC mod in Orpheus's Gateway (the old Snergle's mine map). I get to the Gateway Door (the old door with the trap) and the character carrying the Horn of Vainen clicks on the door.......and the game freezes. You see a slight flash of what is probably the Horn on the mouse pointer jus...

I've used both Control Panel & the game programme to uninstall MM6, and deleted any surviving folder. I've reinstalled the original MM6 & still getting the same error. I guess it has to do with something being left over from the TCC mod installation, because this didn't happen when I first i...

Grrr - tried to reinstall, now the game won't patch. Uninstalled & reinstalled the basic game, when I try to install the patch to 1.2 I get an error box "Old File not found. However, a file of the same name was found. No update done since file contents do not match." I'm running Window...

Now *that's bizarre. I swear that the LRoW dropped from the sky like you ocassionally see when an area respawns, when I was near the old Devils Outpost in Kreigspiere. It was certainly some sort of flower different from the normal 3 herbs. And I'd never been to the location on top of the Demonclaw m...

OK now I have qn 2 & 3!

Looking for the Last Rose of Winter for Klar. I"m pretty sure it dropped when I was walking between the volcano & what used to be Devils Outpost entrance in Kreigspiere. However I don't have it now & I must have reloaded, but it's not re-dropping. Am I in the correct place to find it? I...

You can't play both parts at the same time, so in all likelihood you are in part 1. If the setup looks like base MM6 and there are buildings anywhere in the game you are in part 1. When you finish part one then you run the part 2 installer and overwrite everything and cannot go back until you reins...

Hi guys a couple qns on the TCC mod - not sure if these have been answered previously but the search function reveals nothing: * I know the mod is in 2 parts. I'm assuming both parts are part of the one - most recent - patch? How do I tell if I have both parts installed? Don't have access to TP yet ...

OK the problem is WinRez needed to run as administrator to work in Windows 7. Running WinRez as admin then following the procedure above, saving LOCAL.REZ after deleting all files there, and LOCALART.REZ after deleting all files there, worked perfectly. Thanks for the help!

Thanks for your help so far, but as I said assume I have completely no idea about "obvious" steps that haven't been specifically mentioned. This is what I have done so far: * Copied ART.REZ & LOCALART.REZ somewhere else. I'll also probably change them to ART.OLD & LOCALART.OLD in c...

I don't know - is it hard? :) This is my problem - I know literally nothing about coding so I don't want to go poking through files randomly. I'm sure what you just posted makes sense but it's Dutch to me! Hopefully someone can provide moron-version instructions for where to go, how to open, what to...

Yeah, that's pretty much the same post from the MM9 Tavern. All the links in that post - to the megaupload site - are now dead. I'm sure I could find the .REZ extracting programme somewhere else, but I'm not much of a coder, so I really need those MM9-specific instructions as to what to change, whic...

MM9 loading screen fix when playing in Windows 7?

Hi all - about 6 months ago on TELP's MM9 tavern, Cinder Raccoon posted a fix for the loading screen freeze that occurs when playing MM9 in Windows 7 through the various compatability modes. It was a workaround that stopped the game using the loading screen at all, therefore it didn't freeze, theref...
