About This File

The American Girls Dress Designer was originally intended to be run on Windows 95, 98 and ME. At the time, NT was a business-grade operating system, and supporting an OS few families would even bother owning would add up to development costs. The patch fixes an issue with Dress Desginer that prevented popup windows from being displayed ingame.

 

Before the fix:

After applying the patch:

Made this mostly to aid doll collectors and families in getting this game to run on modern operating systems, in response to numerous complaints on Amazon and elsewhere, with at least one going so far as to throwing their copy in the bin. :/

      When the game starts to load it just crashes to the desktop without an error. But when I launch Ubisoft Connect offline it's perfectly fine. Why is this? Months ago on my previous OS I could access it no problem. Ubisofts fault or did I get banned or something?

      L.A Noire FPS Unlocker is a tool made to unlock the framerate to 60FPS. This tool contains parts of Cheat Engine and may be detected by some AVs. Add it to the exclusion of your AV if this happens.
      The tool scans for memory values, patches them and shuts off automatically. This tool should work on any version of the game.
      Instructions:
      Open up the tool Start the game Press F10 to activate the tool. You will hear one beep when it starts, and a different beep when it's done Archive password: pcgw

      In Martian Gothic: Unification, the ending video (<path-to-game>\data\outro.bik) can be corrupted. The other videos aren't. If it is, when it should play the game crash. The used game installation was fully updated with all the available patches.
      Can be tested if it's corrupted using the last RAD Video Tools/Bink and Smacker (Actually Bink 2021.3/Smacker 4.2e) and trying to playing it. If its corrupted it should play with big greens and blues squares as the screenshot. Also MPC-HC doesn't play the video (only the audio) but VLC plays it normally.
      It seems it's about of using a different encoding than the others videos, which doesn't match the binkw32.dll bundled with the game. The game seems to be using Bink compatible with RAD Video Tools 1.0e (which is the one available when this game was launched), and the video is created with 0.8 or below, or a higher version.
      So the attached video is the same video reencoded with Rad Video Tools 1.0e. To fix the video, change the original file in <path-to-game>\data\outro.bik with this one.
      No need to point it out, but this is the ending and it has spoilers, although not the big ones.

      This restores the cut voicelines of hero units in the mission Hollywood and Vain which were cut by patch 1.01
