Issues fixed[edit]

Installing retail version on modern systems[edit]

The following installer should get around an issue related to the game not installing on 64-bit operating systems.
  1. Extract the contents from Disc 1 and Disc 2 in a folder.
  2. Download this installer (alternate) and extract it in the same folder, then run it.

Level 7 Crash[edit]

  1. Go to steamapps\common\Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine\Resource\Cog and open TEM_introCut.cog with a text editor program.
  2. Find line 171.
  3. Add player = GetLocalPlayerThing(); below # Draw imp#1 and above SelectWeapon(player, 14);
  4. Save and close the file.

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/904540/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (904540) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
  2. When running this game without Administrator elevation, activity in %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%, and %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore\ (more details).
  3. Not all resolutions may appear when using dgVoodoo 2. If this occurs, select a lower resolution with the same desired aspect ratio and bit depth and force the desired resolution in the dgVoodoo Control Panel instead. Creating a custom resolution may be necessary for widescreen if this happens.
