Post by ADADQGG »

Are you sure you're really using the "XP" version and not the initially released NewPAL version?

Try the NewPAL XP version if you are running Windows 2000/XP/Vista (i.e., the one with Hu Ge, Liu Yifei and An Yixuan on the box, not the original release of NewPAL with game characters on the box). Note that the Simplified Chinese version of NewPAL XP is somewhat buggy so it would be better if you can find the Traditional one.

The original NewPAL will only work well under Win98/ME.

EDIT: Here is the program file of NewPAL XP Traditional Chinese version, try replacing the original palgame.exe file with this one and see if it works:

Wow, is this nostalgic or what.

well there are actually 2 different versions, "NewPAL" and "NewPAL XP". The original NewPAL version has the problem, but the XP version does not. If you are using the original NewPAL version, just copy the program file from the XP version the problem will be solved.

Can anyone provide me with the program file from the XP version? The link above has the file with .tz at the end. It doesn't exactly start the game. Thanks

it's .7z, and not .tz :P just extract it with an archiver like 7-Zip or WinRAR and you'll get a palgame.exe file and that's it.

Thanks Whistler. Do you happen to have one in simplified Chinese? That would be much appreciated!

sorry I don't have the Simplified Chinese XP version... but the Simplified Chinese version of NewPAL XP is rather buggy (e.g., opening some chests will result in crashes or being teleported to somewhere else which made the game non-continueable) so it's not recommended :(

im also playing the new xp traditional version and it keeps crashing as well

its crashes right when yue ru tries to go back into the cave (after we find ling er sick at the doctors, and we get yue ru to try to get the ingredients back in town), walking anywhere else is fine, but it just crashes every time i try to go back into the cave

anyone have any ideas or suggestions on how to fix this? are these crashes common?

thanks in advance!

Hmmm, Dun think anything can be done about the crashing. When I am playing it, it does crash every now and then and I meant like after a battle, it just hanged there. What I did was, i save the game every small progress I made, like clearly a portion of the maze or clearing a certain long scene. =) Because I remembered the first time I played it hanged when I was at the end of the largest maze in the game (forget the name). And I didn't save. Almost cried coz I have to start from the front again. T_T

there are two versions of NewPAL, one is released in 2001 which has the crashing problem, and there is also another version titles "NewPAL XP" released in 2005 which fixed the problem (this version has characters of TV drama on the box instead of game characters).

If you are running Windows 2000/XP, you will need the XP version and not the old version.

Sigh.. Rapidshare has removed the file due to inactivity. Now I can't resolve the errors.

I have those crash problems too. Could anyone re-upload the New Pal XP program files ?
Another question : do I only have to replace the palgame.exe file with the new one ? Even if the version I have is simplified chinese (and the other one traditional), will it work ?

(By the way I'm new here, hello everybody ! :roll:)
