Drakan Gold Pack

Postby AXE » Tue Sep 24, 2013 12:23 am

I'm starting to think of making a newer version, what with all the innovations that have changed the structure of some of the files. Some of the included files are no longer needed, where there are many that need to be added.

Not sure where all the downloads are going, but each year its been more than a thousand. If we have truly beat the network issue with Hamachi, and AiO patch. then we should get more players online again.

Anybody got some celebrities that could promote for free! Just sayin wont hurt maybe have a holiday newyear get together. 8)

Have created this, it needed to be updated. Previous post lost some of its html properties but it has the content. I am in the process of updating web server, torrent, and game server.

Tests should be complete within a week or two! 8)

This pack will make it much easier for players to get the game working without worrying about patches etc. I think a lot of players don't know about the various unofficial patches so a single compilation of everything pre-patched etc will be great.

Have tested and modified some.

The AiO is an installed patch for the pack, unfortunately the 10th anniversary is not.

It requires some adding features that I saw while it was installing that I could not guaranty all files would be included as installed. For instance I saw it going to \user\data\app and wondered where that was if even it was a temp location. I have included the patch if people wish to use it!

Have decided to include a Hamachi file installer, might make it easier for people to decide which Logmein Program to use.

I have tested the download a few times, and installing it on different machines around here. Website is up to date, including Kickass. Game server is running: and did see that I missed connecting with UCyborg by about 3 hrs. Although he seems to be getting kicked by his firewall issue. Aught to try the Hamachi I have setup! 8)

Is the gold pack relevant if i want singleplay only?

There's so many new files available and this would be great if it has all patches and fan made content included for
singleplayer use.
Also does your new Gold pack have The 10th mod now?

Thanks for putting together The gold pack.

EDIT:I can't seem to find a http link for gold pack.
Google shows some docs.google links for "installers",but they seem a bit dodgy.
Is there a safe place to get it apart from torrent?

AXE,can u advise how to get the gold pack via HTTP links?
How about sticking it on gamefront?

There are still some issues that are bothering me. Game seems to have trouble with saving graphics settings if not run as admin. Because it's coded to save settings under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE in registry, modern Windows versions redirect those to somewhere under HKEY_CURRENT_USER. It's called Registry Virtualization, however I experienced weird issues on both of my machines where after some time of usage, game fails to retrieve stored values and keep asking to set graphics settings on startup. Patching it to use HKEY_CURRENT_USER directly is really easy, I just didn't bother to release an update just for that one thing, since I'd still like to have another look at the issue with quick save and music, I just don't have the time to work on it ATM.

There is also a problem with previous version and likely this version of Gold Pack, unless you checked if all maps work. Some time after I've released the last version of AiO Patch, I tested if all maps work and there were some that didn't. Some didn't because of some missing files. I could fix some of them and deleted ones that I couldn't get to work. One multiplayer map was also outside of Multiplayer directory so it was impossible to load it using "level" command, it was only loadable by using level list file. So what I can guarantee about version of the pack on my PC is that all maps load when you start the sever. I could probably upload it somewhere.

Oh, there is also Windows 10 on horizon. Game didn't work for me on one of the first Technical Preview versions, the screen was black after applying the same trick to get it working normally on Windows 8.1. We'll see how it behaves when the final version is released.

Kudos for getting that gem on GameFront though! I never though it would ever get officially available again somewhere. And having all levels bundled with the game is always a big plus.

I was appalled at the price for a used cd of Drakan. I have added an Original CD for download at GameFront.

Zip format, of all files on the original cd, English version. 8)

Hey guys. I'm back!

Does anyone have a copy of the 2015 final gold pack?
or at least the 2014 one?

It's a bit obsolete though. There's been some development on the AiO Patch since.

Greetings Everyone; whom are still around or lurking around!!!!

I have not played for 4 years, and have not been here for far to many years.

I recently installed the disk, and the 445 patch, then the new AiO patch.

I am running win7 on a 8 core amd at 4.0, with 128gb ram, and a radeon 4 gb video.

I was pleasantly surprised to find, it ran flawlessly.

I even connected to Arokh's server, with no issues with a router, or differing lvls.

"Awesome Job Guys"

This game is a memory, that to be able to come back and play, so easily to install. Wow.

Gona go finish the game know!

Nice. Mechanist, Ucyborg and Yangez93 put a lot of work into the community to make Drakan MP work again and organise the community. Interest seems to be lacking again but it was nice to play the game again on modern computers.
