1.0 out of 5 stars A con, 13 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Plane Scape Torment (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
From what I can hear of the beginning, the music is excellent, just wish I could get get a picture as well! Hoping they will bring out a patch.

The game is (actually almost exactly) ten years old, so no, they won't bring out a patch because there is already a patch and a lot of other material out there.

It is a con in the sense that the box says this an upgraded version of the game that will work on Vista without fiddling around (it won't) and it isn't, but that's the publisher's fault, not the fault of the game itself.

To get it working, google and download the official Planescape: Torment v1.1 patch. Try different options in the option menu. Turning on software transparency and software mirroring can be useful.

Also consult this mod page as they have lots of useful advice and help on getting the game to work:

There was something of an industry after this game was released, in similar way to 3D modding. You should find a wealth of upgrades / patches to enhance your enjoyment of this fantastic game.

If you don't have any luck with the fixpack, then you might want to try running the game using GemRB:

"Game engine made with preRendered Background" is an open source reimplementation of Bioware's Infinity Engine.

Strange it shouldn't work at all for you; I've got an original copy (or, at least, old; it's in one of those jewel cases PC games always used to be in), and I tried it on my laptop with Vista the other day, and it works fine!

Mayhap you should ask The Lady for tech support ?

But be mindfull of the fact that i may well be under the trickster`s gaze....

Dude, the game Works ! update your video drivers , run in win 98 compatibilty mode , its one of the finest Rpg` s we shall ever see , corperate game design has seen to that....
