ParaWorld on Windows 8.1

Post by Jobie2110 » Sat Jan 25, 2014 19:41 pm

So I now have a new computer that runs Windows 8.1. When I tried to install my ParaWorld game I soon realized that it was not working (very much not working...) and could not figure out why, so I went online in search of an answer. I found that other people had asked about getting it to work on Windows 7, and that the boosterpack 2.0 fixed their problems. But, I have a feeling that it might not work the same for Windows 8.1... Am I right or am I wrong?

Also... I have lost the CD code for this game, which is why I have not been able to play this game in years. :( If I am able to get this game up and running, is there a way I could figure out what my code was?

Thanks to anyone willing to help.

Alright, so I have completed all those steps and I now have three icons: ParaWorld, paraWorld Boosterpack, and ParaWorld SDK. I am guessing I just use the regular ParaWorld icon to play?

Good news ;) Always start with the Paraworld Boosterpack icon. You can delete the Paraworld one. The Sdk shortcut will start the Map Editor :)

Enjoy PW
