Essential improvements

Getting the game to work on modern systems

The game installation executable will fail to run on modern systems (Windows 10) and will give a "Error executing program! (31)" error.[citation needed]
Workaround for installation issues[citation needed]
  1. Boot into Linux and install the latest stable Wine (for Ubuntu see ).
  2. Use Wine to install KHG off the CD using this guide - - (do not try and install the Indeo codec yet). If you want to watch the intro movie (recommended) then play the movie file on the CD using your player.
  3. Copy the entire KHG directory across to one of your windows drives or make sure you can access the files from Windows.
  4. Reboot into Windows.
Prepare to run the game on modern system[1]
  1. Install game normally (in case of issues check fixbox above).
  2. Download and install Patch 1.1.
  3. To install the Indeo codec, download Indeo Codec installer and run it as administrator.
  4. Press Win and type in CMD and select to run it as administrator.
  5. In an admin command prompt, type in cd C:\Windows\SysWOW64 then regsvr32 ir50_32.dll.[2]
  6. Download DirectX 11 renderer and extract it.
  7. Move d3d11drv.dll from ST-Klingon_Honor_Guard folder in extracted directory to <path-to-game>\System.
  8. Go to common folder in extracted directory and move all files to <path-to-game>\System.
  9. Download modified Khg.ini, extract it and move it to <path-to-game>\System.

Graphical Tweaks

Unreal Engine DirectX 11 Renderer

A fork of Kentie's Direct3D 10 renderer that adds more graphical features.
Runs the game in widescreen resolutions.
Improved lighting.
Adds ambient occlusion, screen-space reflections, and higher quality HDR post-processing.
As of December 30, 2020, the latest Unreal DirectX11 Renderer has ended support for this game.[3] The last supported version is 1.6.1.
Places a temporary watermark in the bottom right, and copies the developers PayPal link to your clipboard. Follow these instructions to disable the watermark and remove the PayPal link from being inserted into your clipboard.
Disable DirectX 11 renderer's PayPal watermark and disable the link from being copied into the clipboard.
  1. Go to Options.
  2. Select Advanced Options.
  3. In a new window open Rendering section.
  4. Open Direct3D 11 support section.
  5. Set SupportMETextEnabled to False.


If the game crashes while attempting to access the Advanced Options, open <game>.ini (see configuration file(s) location) with text editor and modify SupportMETextEnabled in [D3D11Drv.D3D11RenderDevice] section, instead.

60 FPS
120+ FPS
Scales inccorectly above 120fps. This can be partially fixed by replacing bytes 0AD7A33B to 00000000 in Engine.dll. This however doesn't fix softlocks in some cutscenes that happen above 80fps.[4]
High dynamic range display (HDR)
See the glossary page for potential alternatives.
