it's the game engine: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCUMM
scummvm lets you run it on modern platforms: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ScummVM

since you didn't really supply any information in your original post on what you're trying to play it on, giving a more useful answer is hard.

Hi, I'm dev of the Blade Runner Installer.

Delete the ddraw.dll in your game directory and launch the game via BLADE.exe --> this should work.

Currently, aqrit's ddraw wrapper doesn't work anymore. I need to find an alternative to emulate a refresh rate in ddraw mode.

Maybe ScrummVM is now the better choice.

Read over the instructions here:
https://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php?title=User … VM#Blade_Runner

You need to copy files from the game CD's to a folder on your hard drive. Copy the files listed here for the German version:
https://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php?title=Blad … rman_CD_release

Rename the cdframes files or alternately use the "pack_bladerunner" tool that is linked to in the instructions at https://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php?title=User … VM#Blade_Runner

Then start up ScummVM, choose Add Game, and browse to the folder where you copied the files. ScummVM should detect the game.

Leave that stuff alone until you've got the game running.
