Arrow x64 - Installer of the Jedi: Balance of Power

Well, I promised and here it is - the Balance of Power MSI setup! No tricks, no cheats - you'll need your own copy of BoP to see for yourself.

http://www.markusegger.at/

Please understand that this setup is quite complex; it's multidisc (previous XvT installation not required) and works with volume labels (BALANCE, XWVSTIE1). You'll be prompted for the XvT CD when necessary.

It's been quite tedious to overcome a few obstacles:
  • writing NiftyZip as done in the first place with XvT and bugfixing/refining it with BoP
  • upgrading an existing XvT installation (done by uninstalling the old version first)
  • dealing with the large folder of extracted BoP files and laying everying out accordingly
  • getting the few missing files/folders from the original XvT CD
It's astonishing how well the game seems to work under Vista x64 - without any compatibility modes (they even make it unplayable on my machine).

Have fun!

- Markus

Don't you mean "playable on my machine"?

Well done!

Thanks! No, that's the funny thing about it. Last time I messed with the compatibility settings, nothing worked! XvT and BoP work best as they are - no compat mode. At least on my machine ;-)

Since I forgot to do so when they were posted, the threads for the XvT and BoP installers have been stickied.
