I Signed up for this forum just to post here, because on Windows 7, and probably Windows Vista too, it is a bit more of a grueling process then posted. To apply Free Roam on Fable - The LosT Chapters on Windows 7 and I am assuming, Windows Vista, then just follow the same steps as posted above, except stop at number 11. Number 12 is where I will continue for Windows 7 and Vista.
12. Next it asks you where to extract the files, Choose your Desktop.
13. Now move FinalAlbion.wad (from your Data\Levels\folder) to you’re My Documents Folder (for safe keeping)
14. Now open 'Levels' which you saved on your Desktop, and copy the folder's contents ,(files), to your Data\Levels\ folder where you installed Fable.
14. Now go to the folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Fable - The Lost Chapters and open userst.ini and change
UseLevelWAD TRUE;àUseLevelWAD FALSE;*
15. Save and close this file and run Fable
**YOU MAY NEED TO MAKE THE FOLDERS EDITABLE TO DO THESE STEPS**
Do this by following these steps:
1. Right click the folder that you want to change, in this case it will be 'Data\Levels\' and '\Microsoft Games\Fable - The Lost Chapters\'
2. Click Properties, then un-tick (remove the checkmark from the box), the Read-Only
3. You may have to go to the Permissions tab of the Folder Properties and edit the permissions for all users just in case. Do this by going to Permissions, Edit, and now go to all of the Groups permissions and click the top 'Apply' box. This will apply all permissions to that group. Now repeat this step for every group.
**I did this just in case and now it works, may or may not work for you, but this is what I did**
--For those of you looking for an explanation of why to put it on the Desktop, THEN the Levels folder for Windows 7 and Vista, is because the file doesn't load in the program files of it for some reason, so if you place it on the Desktop, then copy it to the \Levels\ folder, it will have the User (That has Permission) do it.--
Most likely I will never get on this site again so if you have questions, or just want to thank me, email me at JJLamattina@msn.com
Hope this help!
