Star Trek - Dominion Wars
After years of trying to get this game to play on a Windows XP system, I have finally succeeded!

It involved downloading a wrapper that "JiriDvorak" created and hexediting the main ds9dw.exe file to replace instances of ddraw.dll with the new ddra2.dll wrapper.

I can finally play one of my favorite Star Trek games again. If anyone wants the modded .exe file and the wrapper drop me a pm with your e-mail addy and I'll send it to you.

I have that game and even the CD is sitting in my computer desk hutch. I haven't even tried installing that game in years.

Played through the first three Fed missions and it runs like a dream.

Searched and found how to do it myself thanks to the leads you gave, OP.

But now I wonder if this will work with Starship Creator as well. I got DW because I played Starship Creator and Warp II came free with DW so picked it up for Warp II.

I can't find my Warp II disk at the moment even though I installed it a little while back but it had graphic issues so installed the first SC. And it has issues with being able to read things like missions or anything. Maybe a draw issue so going to try this fix to see if it works.

I'm currently doing an STF in the foundry called "STF - Dominion Wars" where you have to save a Vorta that has vital information to end the war quickly.

I loved the game as well, that's why I'm doing this episode now. :D

Anyone still here?
If anyone's looked at this thread recently and still has the modified exe file at hand, please PM me, for the life of me I can't get it to work...

DUDE! Start a new thread on this, save raising the dead for WOW.

Na, because of this thread I just installed the game for the first time in 10 years and been playing it perfectly.
