Ok guys sorry to barge in but I really have been banging my head on a wall for 2 days now.
First thing, I'm actually on a Win 7 64bit system but I didn't feel like opening a whole other thread for this problem so sorry it's a bit ot.
This is what I have been trying. I installed the game, put DXMCI contents in my wc4 folder. Then I put the mpeg2.dll into wc4 folder. Put the game in compatibility mode (98, 95, XP, tried all of them). But when I start the game the sounds play fine but I just can't see any video. I can skip to the dialogue choices and select one, but then still no video.
Now from what I gather I am missing the codecs. I tried to install mpeg2dec but when I click on "register.bat" I get an error message saying: "The module mpeg2decfilter.ax was loaded but the call to DIIRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005".
I tried using the alternate mpeg2.dll but it still won't work (no video), it actually gives me the same error message that I'm supposed to get if I have the newer wc4 version (so I suppose my version is not actually the newer but the 'standard' one). I have tried just for kicks to use the alternate nstriker patch but it won't work, says file size mismatches so I think it's a confirmation that I have the standard version. Anyone can help please?
-> Notes: I tried downloading the Ligos codecs which I read worked for galikoza but still no video. Also as a sidenote, if I just launch the game videos with VLC I can see them fine, I just can't get them to play when I start the game
