So the game works great and runs really smoothly. However, for whatever reason the game will not let me make save files and restarts my profile every time I exit the game. I am running the Windows 64-bit version on a Windows 10 machine. As this was a clean install, I did not have the vanilla version of the game installed before this one.
This is becoming an issue because my progress on the campaign is restarted every time I open the game.
@Hepativore Where do you have the game installed?
Windows might prevent the game from writing files if it is installed under
C:\Program Files (x86)- I would suggest moving it to
C:\Gamesor similar, if that is the case.

I did as you suggested and it seems to work. Ever since my computer forced me to upgrade to Windows 10 I have hated it as I hate not being able to write to the Program Files folder by default unless you go messing around with profile permissions and so on.
Anyway, thank you for your help this quickly. I was afraid that I would be waiting awhile as there do not seem to be that many active users on the Machines forum anymore.
Unfortunately I am experiencing the black screen problem on ati radeon video card with catalyst driver. No pictures, just sounds. it's a known issue (I read the readme file) but ... HELP!
@Takeel Hi! Try asking on the Discord server as well (https://discord.com/invite/J6e9MsY). I don't know how to fix it, but there are others there that could give you a hand!
@Pisarz I will try. Thank you.

"@everyone Hi, looks like things spread quite quickly on the internet. To all those who asked for the source code - I just want to let you know that all formalities with the current game owner have been completed and they agreed to publish it under GPLv3. This applies to code only. Check out NDS fork if you wish:
Let me know if you need developer access, Pull Request review or something."

@Pisarz this is huge! Thank you for informing us!
Woah, this is amazing. Huge thanks both to the Night Dive Studios and everyone from the community involved. :D

Ive been tryin to get this game up and running , with your help I can play it again. You are heroes :D:D thank u !!
i got the Patched game download, and copyed all this assets in the machines folder, but the game stops at the splash screen before Loading strip gets over the N in the title Machines.
Is there a way to replay this game on a new machine?
AMD Ryzen 5 3600x
RTX 2060 6gb
DDR4 3000mhz 32gb ram
BTW the patched game works, but with awefull stutters and invisible black textures.
@Vasja1st the original Machines files (patched or otherwise) should not be used with Machines 1.5.
Make a new folder, e.g.
C:\Games\Machines 1.5\, and extract the Machines 1.5 game assets and windows native executable 64-bit .7z archives into that.
DrFirebug made an installation tutorial video which might be useful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROpWUIz22qY
@m123 Great, so ok it works better now, but still.
Im getting TEXTURE pop in and out of existance depending on point of view.
And the game randomly crashes, it crashes the most on Meridia Skrimish map.
@vasja1st Yeah, that missing terrain issue seems to affect everyone, as far as I know.
I don't think I've experienced any crashes, but my overall playtime in Machines 1.5 is pretty low.
Maybe see if anyone on the community Discord has any ideas:

i tested it and one issue i found is that i am unable to select fullhd ingame because the number of resolutions is too high for the list. a solution to that would be to make the list scrollable. i am also unable to get it to run in windows 10 on one of my pcs, because it can not select a resolution of 640x480. i suggest just fixing that issue.
Everything runs really really smoothly.
Runs on a Thinkpad X220 from 2011 with manjaro (Intel Core i5-2520M)
I had to reinstall or compile a few dependencies.
Thanks for the nostalgia.
