Reliable CM99/00 download

Post by Coward90 »

Hello,

Does anyone have a reliable CM99/00 game download link?

Getting a windows 10 laptop and would love to play this old classic but bit of a tech novice so unsure what I’m doing. I do have the old disc but I remember it used to get an error after x amount of time played and laptops don’t have disc drives anymore.

Any help or guidance would be great

Many thanks

If you have the disk it is just like playing 0102, all you need to do is download the first 9900 patch as the original game had a fatal bug so the patch fixes it. A quick google should find it. If not I can upload but chilling on sofa tonight

I just googled it and found a download for the game on a couple of websites. I won't link to them as it's probably not allowed (as I don't think CM99/00 was declared as free like CM01/02 was), but you can find the game and the patch on the same website (My Abandonware..... ;) ). Windows 10 comes with built-in ISO image mounting software, so you just need to right click on the ISO file after downloading it and then mount it. That should autorun the installer, but if not, just go find it like you would when trying to find the original CD and run the setup from there.

Sorry to hijack the thread but does anyone know how if any of the CM01/02 tools are compatible with CM3,CM 99/00 or CM 00/01?
Going to give them a bash at some point when i get time but just thought i'd ask on here before proceeding.

Any info is much appreciated!

Cheers for these. Hoping to get the new laptop at the weekend and then will download 99/00 online and add a patch by following the instructions used for 01/02.

What are the differences between 3.72 and 3.73 patches? Do I just use one?

Many thanks

That’s actually a good question. Certainly 3.72 means the game won’t crash. Usually when you download and install it creates a notepad that tells you the difference between the old and new patch.

Found this , think go with 3.73 https://zeipresecwa90.wordpress.com/202 ... h-373/amp/

Unfortunately I tried downloading from “said” website. Unzipped the file to show it as a disc image file (not iso). Pressed mount but said file was corrupted

Maybe .img files aren't natively recognised by Windows. Maybe try converting it to an .iso file:

Cheers for this. Just tried and unfortunately didn’t work. Think it is the correct format as just tried the 01/02 download from the forum and worked fine. Such a shame as I much prefer 99/00.

If i had the physical game and copied over the files from the disk to new laptop (no disk drive) and did that, would that work?

Nope, you would need to create an ISO file from the disc, then put the ISO file on a USB stick, transfer it to the new computer, and then mount it. https://www.howtogeek.com/228886/how-to ... and-linux/

Think that, I’m that desperate and stubborn that I will get an external hard drive to play the disc instead. Can you still patch it though?

Should be able to that's what I did as I had the original disc. Had the patch saved on a USB stick and it worked no bother at all.
