I've played BZ1 since it first came out - and yes, I even own a copy of the original CD.
I have now got it working on my Windows 7, 64 bit machine with the latest patch (bzone_d3d9.exe).
However, I have no idea what Red Odyssey is and how to install it.
The instructions as a sticky on this forum indicate that I should be able to find the ISO on the game CD....nope. Nothing there.
Please advise?

bzone_d3d9.exe is work-in-progress 1.5 patch. Battlezone 1.4 and Red Odyssey 1.3 are available in the Battlezone 1998 installer at http://www.battlezone1.net.

Ah - ok. Looks like I won't be playing it - I need the 1.5 patch to get it working on my 64bit machine!

I was under the impression that Red Odyssey was a mission addon pack or something.

Thanks.

It is, but it has its own codebase, so Ken can't patch it... :( and it has its own soundtrack. :)

Actually 1.5 isn't needed for Windows 7.

I downloaded the installer he pointed you at when I still had Windows 7 64bit and it works perfectly given you have the correct settings. I also have the original cd (2 actually) so if I want music and intro I just put the CD in and it'll play them (except for the RO ones :wink: )

http://www.battlezone1.net/home/index.html You'll also need to change compatibility mode to Windows XP.

Works fine on Win XP pro - only problem is, it's VERY hard!

Just finished the Black Dog bit and working on the Chinese missions - and still stuck on the second one, dammit.
They're all multi-part, so a lot of saving going on.

RO is difficult. I've beaten all the missions on hard, except for Chinese Mission #2 due to epic failure, and Chinese Mission #8 due to a certain random crash. It was great fun. :twisted:

What are the correct settings? I have a Toshiba Satellite A505 with a 64 bit bit system, which I am running on windows 7 home premium edition. It has an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500 series graphics card. I am currently just using 1.5. I recently installed Battlezone 1998, and the only way I could get RO to load was by running it in software mode, which is very irritating, needless to say. Otherwise, RO AND BZ gave me a UE as soon as the game launched and tried to go to the main menu. I set both to compatibility mode for WinXPSP3 and I still got the same results. Please help!

Currently, there's no way to run BZ/RO on Win7+ATI in HW mode (Win7+Nvidia is a different story). Only thing that could fix that is ATI making drivers with support for older DX, but I seriously doubt that will happen anytime soon. That's why we are making 1.5 patch which uses DX9. And yes, RO will die with 1.4. :cry:
