Hi there, my name is Björn.

I am new here and i have a little problem installing the "mega patch 4" i have downloaded a few days ago. But first, sorry for my bad english :)

A few weeks ago i found my old original german CD copy of X-Wing Alliance. I am using Windows 10 and i have installed the game by using the modified setup files from http://www.markusegger.at/Games. Installation was fine, the game would also start. I installed the update 2.02 for XWA an the tried to install the mega patch. Setup begins and runs to step 3/6 "installing game patches". At 78,3% [36/46] an error occurs. I have made 2 screenshots.

Can anyone help with this problem? It would be great if its possible to play this game again with a betteer look after all the time.

Thanks in advance :)

Did you install the XWAU 2020 first? The Update 4 is just a feature pack for the XWAU 2020, from the looks of it you are trying to install that one without installing the main pack first.

Hallo and thank you for your answer.

No, i did not install the xwau first, i had understood that the mega pack alone is sufficient.

I will try to download and install the xwau 2020 first and tell you if it works.

Thanks a lot :)

Hi again.

I have uninstalled completely my xwa installation, made a clean new installation, updated to 2.02 and then installed XWU2020 and the update pack. Now it works fine.

Thank you for the hint :)
