Hi, I recently installed the game on my laptop and I've got a few problems. In the first act, I got out of the game area (which means I was walking around in the dark area). Another problem is the equipment, when I pick up 2 boots then 1 boot gets in the ring area and I can't put a ring in there only boots (also only 1 boot gives me properties), another problem with the equipment is that when I equip a shield it comes on the place of the neckless. I can't put anything at the place where the shield normally would be, so it's choosing wheiter to use a shield or neckless. The same problem is there for the belt and arrows.

First I thought it was because I used a higher resolution but that didn't fix it. Then I thought maybe its because I installed it on my laptop, but my pc got the same problems. After that I found out their was a newer patch 1.49 for vista compatibility, installed the patch and still the same problems.
Also another thing my Game is 1.56 GB big, and everywhere I see it should be 2 GB.

I don't know what's causing this problem, I searched this forum but I didn't find any post with the same problems. Thanks for the help. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

The problem of a character getting out of the game area is not uncommon, though it becomes much rarer after act 1 (not nearly so many narrow corridors, etc).
If you have the character still in the game area either enter and leave the battlefield, or take some stairs, it will bring the other character back. Also, it is possible to get a summoning doll through a wall (see armory trick in act 1), which you can use to get into or out of the play area.

A couple people have had corrupt items when playing under Vista. Switching to Win 98/ME compatibility mode should prevent it from happening, but I believe you will need to start a new game (once the corruption occurs in a save it will continue to happen, even if you transfer that save to a non-Vista system).

Inventory graphic placement bug

The Version of BD you bought would have to be already updated to 1.49, otherwise it would not have installed under Vista (the copy protection drivers would fail to install due to the changes made in Vista, so each time you tried to start the game you would get a message that you needed to reboot to complete the installation). Installing the patch over an updated game version shouldn't do any harm, though.

Depending on where you installed the game and how you have your user accounts set up, Vista will create the dynamic folders and save game folders under your user profile path, rather than in the BD folders. That may account for at least part of the size difference.

Thank you for helping me out.

Now I can play the game better (without or at least less problems).

Thanks again. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
