    Greetings,

    This thread has been created to compile the installation instructions for Bridge Commander, for any of the events we host -- this includes stock Bridge Commander events, as well as events where we use the Kobayashimaru Mod 1.0, and KM 1.1.

    If these instructions don't work, or you have trouble understanding them, please contact either myself or a member of the Tactical staff. Also, if you find something which enables your game to work after a problem, please message myself with the fix for your problem.

    BRIDGE COMMANDER SETUP
    Once you have gotten the game installed, make sure that it is patched to 1.1 -- most of the time, the game is already patched to 1.1, but to be sure it is always a good idea to patch the game regardless.

    Once you have the game installed, and patched, make sure to check the options, within the properties of the shortcut you are using -- "Run as Administrator" as well as set the compatibility mode to "Windows XP Service Pack 3". This may not be 100% necessary to make the game run, but if there are issues getting it started, these options should help.

    Bridge Commander Patch 1.1 can be found HERE

    Now that you have it setup, I would strongly recommend that you duplicate your game folder, so that you can mod additional copies of the game, without corrupting the original install.

    BRIDGE COMMANDER KOBAYASHIMARU MOD VERSION 1.0 SETUP
    Now that you have the original game installed, and the game folder duplicated -- I would recommend renaming the duplicate folder something easily recognisable, and distinctly obvious location for the mod, i.e. Bridge Commander - KM 1.0.

    Once you have the .rar file downloaded, extract the contents of the file into the relevant folder, making sure to merge any folders, and overwrite any existing files. Now you can setup an additional shortcut, from the modded folder .exe along with the same settings as the original shortcut, and the game should run.

    Bridge Commander 1.0 download links: http://bckobayashimaru.de/ws/index.php?id=downloads -- make sure to select the "KM 1.0 -- KIP & RAR" tab

    BRIDGE COMMANDER KOBAYASHIMARU MOD VERSION 1.1 SETUP
    The installation instructions for 1.1 are exactly the same as the setup for 1.0, only you need to make sure you have downloaded the .rar file from the "Latest KM Versions" and install the mod exactly the same as previous.


    BRIDGE COMMANDER ON WINDOWS 10
    Follow these steps to successfully install onto Windows 10, as provided by Snorp09:
    • Right click your cd drive, and select open in new window
    • Goto the setup folder
    • right click _ISDel select properties
    • Go to the Compatibility tab
    • Enable compatibility mode and select windows xp (sevice pack 3)
    • And then run setup.exe from within the setup folder.

    Thanks again to Snorp09 for his additional information!

    If you suffer from choppy frame rate please try installing the legacy DirectX run-time https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down...n.aspx?id=8109

    Now that the different versions are fully installed, you should have 3 different game folders, and thus 3 different shortcuts all different titles.

    Please bear in mind, you have may difficulty getting the game to work on Windows 8, if you do have trouble and find a fix for your problem please let me know.

    If you do have any further queries, or problems to do with Tactical or Bridge Commander please contact myself via PM.

    Regards
