Hello mousEE :) :)
thanks your works here. :D
I got a problem with the PUDDraft.
It said you have to find a WAR2.EXE before you use it.
No idea where this file is.
Do you know what to do? ^-^ ^-^

hi frand, it's been so long since i used it i'm afraid i don't really remember. you could try navigating to the c:\war2combat folder and selecting one of the .exes in there and see if it works. if not you might need the old dos version or something, i know there's a way to get it working but just don't remember rn, if i can figure it out i'll post & let you know :)

 ;D ;D ;D oh God.
I made it out!
I check the other version installer I download couple days before.
There is the 'war2.exe" there.
And i located it. It works!
What a luck! :) :) :)

btw, i download that version from MyAbandonware.com.
and the version is BtDP version.

Still , there is a warning box come out, says "Access violation at ....."
i don't see anything wrong after closing the box.

Thank you all the same.  ^-^mousEE :) :) :) ^-^

IIRC War2.exe is the executable from the original DOS (pre battlenet) version of the game. PUDDraft pulls some recources from there. That will be the version you got from abandonware.
