Thanks Olly for your guide..
If you don't mind.. some feedback

I just coming back to DO.. so just wanted play campaign on my Win 10 64 bit machine.
I followed your guide exactly and it worked... but:
- I didn't want to play mods.. I just wanted the standard campaign (and it seemed to start me in a quite advanced area?)
- the movies did not work (without the CD in.. and I thought your fix was a "noCD" fix as well?)

Also - I didn't really want it on my C drive.. I wanted it on my games drive.. so I fiddled.

I didn't add the "mods" or "Armytmp" directories from your download.. and that seemed to put me back to the core campaign Smiley
And I copied the movie directory from the CD and changed the registry pointer.. and the movies were back.
And so I uninstalled.. and then reinstalled/repeated onto my game drive.. and it seems work fine (so don't know If your instructions that install MUST be on C drive is not accurate.. or perhaps it is accurate if you want use mods)
However.. although it all working.. I do still have a "mods" option greyed out on my menu.. which I have not worked out how to remove and get back to the vanilla menus (what I really want).

So with your uber skills.. could you perhaps do 2 threads.. one for people who DO want your mods stuff.. and may be a simpler one for noobs like me - who just want the vanilla (but full) original game experience.

Thanks for your help and time.
All the best

you only needed to select Original Game from the mods menu to play vanilla.

I have amended the guide to include copying the movies folder and repointed the registry download to it - thanks.

Ahhh.. thanks..

Its just that when I installed.. and started.. it came up with the "Dark Omen 2" heading in the menus (i.e. the flaming 2 added) .. and just pressing start campaign got me into that complex fight in mentioned.. that was clearly not the start of the campaign  as I remember.. 
So maybe when you package it up.. it should by default start on the original campaign.. just to avoid confusing noobs like me Wink

Thanks for adding the movies fix, sure others will appreciate Smiley

You didn't confirm if it really does need to be on C drive? I installed mine of F and it seems to be working fine? (though I am not trying all mods). So if it can be installed on non C drive.. other may also appreciate option to put it where they like.

Anyway - thanks for your very prompt reply.. I have put back your mods directory and selected original game.. so I am now playing original game as I want.. AND I can try your mods when I completed the original Smiley

Thanks again and best regards
