    Win 8/7/10 Fixed :D (Need Testers)

    Hi Guys
    I not played Mir 3 or 2 in years but got a bit of nostalgia
    i was having probs getting Mir 3 working in win 10 and long story short it bugged me enough to find/make a fix so here you go

    just copy these files in the main Mir Directory and run as normal but take OFF XP compatibility on the main mir3.exe's and it work great!!
    but it dose take a bit longer to load (About 10-15 seconds)

    tested on the Zentaur Mir 3 Client and it works for me
    This now only runs with WineD3D DX8 Wrapper you can DL it from here were it has the files you need or from there site but they have a lot more file and your will have to read the readme file and test what files you need . Make sure to remove all old files and replace with the new ones.

    let me know how it work our for you

    EDIT FIX 2: OK I have had 2 successful cases of this fixing win 10 issue manual install DirectX 9c again then go to https://sourceforge.net/projects/dxglwrap/

    run and install. It will ask if you to install direct play I allowed it do not know if it make difference. When its installed you will get a new screen.

    Select the TOP option and press APPLY and it will inform you it is installed.
    initially make sure you have not got my previous fix installed as I believe it will conflict and make sure you manual install DirectX 9c again to make sure all the files are there

    Here is a short preview of the fix in action. https://youtu.be/3neqrHyhnOA
    if you would like to see if it is stable in hectic, action packed situations let me know and ill see what I can do

    Also added a screen with some settings may help but I really do not know

    EDIT (15/04/17): I found another problem with the last patch. it was causing the screen to get really bright and disable the spell effects and mini map I have updated the Attachment with a more stable build that seems to stop that from happening and it also fixes the text and font colours.

    Was this confirmed to work and it is stable?

    Would be a monumental release if it's reliable.

    Re: Win 8/7/10 Fixed :D (Need Testers)

    sorry but I get confused, what files I need? Where I get them?

    EDIT:

    ok got it now, I just added those files into the folder, i think it runs way better now(just tested bichon spammed with firewalls). We will see more on hunts etc.
    But I still get a win10 pop up, saying my resolution is wrong, I should choose 1366x768. But I have this resolution already (got black bars left and right of my window)(in fullmode )

    Re: Win 8/7/10 Fixed :D (Need Testers)

    WOW very wierd
    erm i dunno im on that server my self (MightyBoosh) erm but in my HL_Mir3G.ini its set to window=0 ya it still loads in a windows at login but as soon as im in game its in full screen. and as for the techni colour lol i dunno. did you take compatibility mode off completely and delete DX8.dsp, DX8.dsw, dxgi.dl files?

    and as for black bars you need to force your graphics card to stretch to fill the screen or force an aspect ratio.
    what graphics cards are in your PC? if you have 2 ether disable the onboard and let your main card be the only one active or make sure your change the screen settings on both cards options.

    I have uploaded a VERY short vid of what my game loads up like and shows how smooth it runs. its only 2 mins ish log so no action but I can do a vid showing that to if any one wants to see how stable it is with lots going on. I will add a YouTube link to the original post when its done editing lol likely in the morning as its 00:30 here in the UK atm

    ya I think it fails to load on GSP clients because the EXE is told to load in admin mode by default and the patch fix dose not like admin or compatibility modes to be on. I don't know what server you tried but I tried on uncharted and it dose not allow me to take admin mode off at all, even if its unticked it still asks

    Just to let you all know I have updated the OP with more help and updated the attachment. the new files are only using WineD3D now using there 2.5 files. You can ether DL the file I have attached or go to his site but you will have to read him read me on what files to use and figure it out from there . Make sure to remove all old files and replace with the new ones.

    I can't get this fix to work for a 3.55 Mir client either.

    I've managed to get the multicolours in window mode but selecting 16 bit colour in compatibility settings results in a not responding error. Doesn't work at all in full screen mode.

    I've downloaded your files and placed them in the main directory. Changed the Nvidia settings too.

    Thats why its not working you MUST NOT USE Compatibility mode or any of the opinions in there. Take it all off no compatibility, not limiting to 16 Bit, no administration mode, this patch is technically a compatibility patch so any other form will stop it working. that gos for all EXEs to be on the safe side take it off any launchers to.

    let me know how it gos plz

    for best results
    If on PC you are safe to use both methods together but the WineD3D is a must.

    If you are using a Laptop ONLY use method 2 the D3D8 OpenGL Emu

    I have had several successful tests myself now on 2 different laptops and 4 PCs.

    I don't know if any others have been successful as not many seem to leave comments to say so
