sothr_install.zip :: Batch script to install the game from the CD. Full-Install, No-CD required after installation.
The batch script requires the 32-bit version of cmd.exe run as an administrator. On Windows 64-bit that would be %windir%\sysWOW64\cmd.exe
sothr_spr.zip (src included) :: export the game's sprite files as bitmaps.
Extract all (~8,000) with a batch script:
FOR %%f in (*.BOP) DO sothr_spr %%~nf
sothr_cursors.zip (src included) ::Color and Animated Cursors ported from the Dark Omen cursor fix
The new cursors require the game to run in a color depth of 32bpp. This should not be a problem for the GOG.com release. The original releases are hit & miss on Windows because of the compatibility shims. On WINE, we can just patch out the 32bpp color check.
