Lands of Lore III cutscenes and alt-tabbing

Post by Manafae » Wed Aug 21, 2019 4:18 pm

Hey, I have two minor problem with one of my favorite games from back in the day. I bought Lands of Lore III from gog and I can run the game in widescreen.

My problems:

1. While the intro cutscene runs perfectly fine, the cutscene you are supposed to get after the little tutorial path, after which you are found by Dawn, is playing only in audio, the video stays black.

2. The bigger problem: Whenever I play the game I cannot alt-tab. I tried to use programs for borderless fullscreen, which didn't work. The only way I can leave the game screen while playing is ctrl + alt + delete and opening the task manager.

Is anyone of you technically able and has an idea how I could edit any ini file or write a batchfile or something similar so I can alt-tab?

Thank you for your help in advance :)

Also I hope it's still okay to post it here, since it's not technically a DOS game, but still a retro game. Otherwise I apologize profoundly. I would still enjoy to stay here, since I'm a big Retro Gamer of DOS and early Windows games.

Is the GOG version updated? (I don't have this game)
I see on Moby's release page there were patches to at least v1.07a

Maybe GOG:s support would be a better option?
