So, I searched all over the internet for the Hardwar ISO files; on the Captain Zedo site the download links are broken; other sites only have the demo with the patch; In Pilot 's archive there is only version F2.0 (AFAIK), which has some bugs and problems playing music and videos on my pc.
Does anyone have the ISO files of version F2.1, or any other solution to this?
The F2.1 USA version can be found on archive.org, just search HardwarUSA. It might help to know your operating system and what graphics card you're using for troubleshooting. More than likely, applying the UIM6.0 patch will fix your issues.
If you want to improve your experience you should look into doing a full install so you won't have to cd swap. There is a patch for the music here hardwar.proboards.com/thread/699/hardwar-music-working-soundtrack-wrapper I like it because it randomizes the music tracks. For video you can copy the GDV files from cds to a folder and change the folder path in the windows registry or use HardwarEopt to change the path.
Yeah, the cue file is the one you want to mount. CD1 has the game install files, video and music tracks, CD2 contains video and music tracks.
You can also move the movies to the Hardwar folder, or (perhaps) elsewhere as long as you are using the UIM updates as you can select the folder you wish for the movies. Maybe the music as well. The tutorials should be around here somewhere.
