I have found a weird bug after choosing to play with music turned off. I like the soundtrack but get a different feel playing without it. If I have music turned off in settings, in the levels McCall and McCall 1, the game gets severely laggy and McCall's talking has no audio or speech bubbles, then it gets stuck! When this happens, after exiting, I still have to clear XIII from task manager or the game won't start again without rebooting. Took a while to figure out the issue, but it runs with no issue with music turned on, lags badly with it off! The rest of the levels are fine with music off. So I just set music to on before playing those 2 levels. I have the GOG version with unofficial 1.4.2 patch on Windows 10 64bit, this happens with or without the patch. Posting here in case anyone else has the same issue, I couldn't find anything online about it, so this could be useful to someone, you never know!
Doesn't work with Windows 10 Pro 64 bit
Just tried the option described here: It just doesn't work. Not this option nor any other I found on the internet. XIII just doesn't seem to be able to be installed under Windows 10 Pro 64. I am very disappointed by how UBI handles this problem. It would be UBI's duty (since years) to provide a viable solution. I know of no other game that is so restricted regarding OSes and installing. Maybe anyone here has a solution. If this is the case I would be very thankful to get some input. I already spent hours on installing this game, without any success.
Actually.... the www.insidexiii.com website tells you how to install and run the game on Windows 10.
This is the installer that you need: www.moddb.com/games/xiii/downloads/xiii-all-in-one-installer
This is the video that you need www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Cu1AH7pOj4
I don't know much about the game, but a simple google search such as "How to install X111 on Windows 10" and clicking on the first video/result will tell you how to install it manually.
You unpack the .cab files manually, otherwise just install it on an earlier OS and get the game that way.
I had no issue installing the GOG version and then was able to install the latest unofficial patch.
