Apparently I have installed nGlide........the games start without setting anything to compatibility mode but after the first screen I obtain an error which says to me:

"You need at least 50MB of Free disk Space to play Trophy Bass 4" and I click OK and the games closes itself and back to desktop.

In Tbass4.ini appears some strange value:

[Hardware]
OpenGL=0
PhysicalMemory=2147483647
VirtualMemory=-1
ProcessorSpeed=1
VideoAccel=1

Look at the VirtualMemory value, it's negative........... but I don't think the problems is the physical memory............ does there exist some way to make this game fully working ?

The games is this:

The last patch is 1.0.0.4........... and I have already installed it without any success.......

Something tells me in the ACT there's a way to fake the remaining free space on a disk? Can someone confirm as I'm too busy right now to check....Edit.. see post above 😀

Sorry to dig up this old thread, but I had the same problem.

I installed Trophy Bass 4 v1.0.0.0, which ran fine. I then installed the v1.0.0.4 update patch from here -> http://sierrahelp.com/Patches-Updates/Patches … assUpdates.html , and then ran into the same problem when running the game... got the error message "You need at least 50MB of Free disk Space to play Trophy Bass 4" and then the game closes back to the desktop when clicking "OK". Windows XP's compatibility modes didn't help at all (W95/W98 compatibility modes).

I then installed an older update, v1.0.0.2 from the same link above, and eveything worked fine.

It must be a glitch in Sierra's v1.0.0.4 update patch. I'm not sure what was fixed from v1.0.0.2 to v1.0.0.4, but v1.0.0.2 runs just fine 😀

MAN! Now if I could figure out some way to play multiplayer games via IP to IP, since WON Network has gone by the wayside 🙁

Thanks for letting me know. If I can't work out the issue I will at least add a warning on the page.

Might be worth talking to James Leiterman about WON since he is the developer of the INN Barn project. INN was a precursor of WON. He is active on the ImagiNation Network (INN) Revival Facebook group.

Folks,

I found this file elsewhere on the Internet. It's a Windows Application Compatibility Toolkit v2.6 fix for the version 1.0.0.4 update patch for Trophy Bass 4... totally fixes the above-mentioned problem 😀

The TBass4.sdb file fix adds EmulateGetDiskFreeSpace *AND* GlobalMemoryStatusLie for the game's executable "TBass4.exe", which fixes the problem.
