Hi there, Twilight Adventures! Good to see you here. 😀
I have a solution to your Arthur's Knights problem that should work for you - and it works well with both Arthur's Knights games.
I did not mount the CDs to a virtual drive. Instead, what I did was this:
I installed the game.
I then copied all the CDs over to the game folder.
Then I went to the Arthur's Knights system folder, which contains the initialization file, and edited it so that it looks like this:
And that's all there is to it. Both games run completely off the hard drive now, with no CDs required.
As far as Odyssey and Time Machine are concerned, I haven't tried them yet, so hopefully Dege will be able to comment upon this when he has the time. I hope to find the time this week to give them both a whirl. I still have the Russian patch for Odyssey at the ready, if it turns out that he wants to take a look at it (he did say, though, that he didn't need to).
Good to have your input on this. 😀
