    Greetings
    whilst looking through my Pc games i found my copy of BR: the gorgon's alliance. Ah ha! thought i, i'll install it and whoop the Gorgon again. When i tried to install it i kept getting this message come up "integer divide by 0"

    my pc has windows xp on it (i last played it on Win98)
    does anyone know if this is an xp problem or could it be a fault with my disc?
    or if it only needs a simple patch to help install it.

    Please help.

    The Gorgon`s Crown was one of the buggiest games ever made. I played it as
    Baruk-Azhik and tried to go on an adventure, and after killing every
    monster on the map, I couldn`t win or exit the adventure.

    I had this problem repeatedly playing as different domains.

    I`ve found a fair number of old games don`t run on XP. You can try setting
    the properties of the program (using the windows left click) to emulate an
    older form of windows, but it hasn`t worked on all my games, and I haven`t
    tried the Gorgon`s Alliance on my current machine. If it doesn`t emulate,
    it probably won`t run.

    After applying the 1.0.0.4 patch and running it only in a full window
    with no other programs running?
    It worked for hours without error for me in Windows 95C in this way.

    I had problems with installation, too. However, DOS install worked for
    me, and then I simply copied the Winbr.exe file. It works now.

    Try my solution, everyone, and tell me if you wish to play it
    multiplayer :-)

    Also make sure you download all compatibility updates.

    There is one adventure, in Bindier I believe, when you search for
    Regalia of the Empire which was stolen by some bandits and taken to some
    old fancy fort. The problem is that the adventure had wrong starting
    place, which put you behind a door that is opened by pressing the
    switch, and the switch is on the other side of the door :-)

    This is fixed by the patch. The patch also improves AI and let`s you and
    NPCs gain XP for domain actions and advance in levels.

    Sierra is known for releasing incomplete games and then patching them
    heavily. Gorgon`s Alliance is a great game, made playable only by the
    patch, but cannot replace the real RPG.

    Birthright: The Gorgon`s Alliance was/is one of my favorite wargames! I
    loved playing the Dwarves and rolling over the Chimera (after making a
    treaty with her with a Chaotic Evil rogue I would hire and putting an army
    in every province). Muahahahahaha!!!! Grim Graybeard is a badboy on the
    adventures too; not to mention having the blood abilities Greater Courage
    and Battlewise on the field!!!! I love that game so much that I still play
    it to this day.

    As for your problem, I have a similar problem in that it says my disk drive
    (on my new comp) is not compatible; but it still runs. I have XP too, and
    it runs on mine....may want to get another copy if you can.

    My BR: Gorgon`s Alliance works fine with no mods at all on my Windows XP,
    has only crashed a couple times in all the years I have had it; and even
    then it was my computers fault and not the games.

    The thing I didn`t like about multi-players is that you couldn`t go on
    adventures and you didn`t control the battles at all. But it did give a
    more Strategic Level of play to the game, and you had to actually have
    decent armies instead of levies on the wings with spell casting NPCs up
    front demolishing the enemy...this way I could win by "crush of numbers"
    because the enemy couldn`t keep a good enough ratio on the field. Try that
    with 12 Levy Units and three NPCs in Multi-play and you will get your arse
    handed to you by the other armies!

    Tony

    P.S.- where are these updates anyway? I didn`t even know there was any kind
    of support for the game any more.
