Issues fixed[edit]

Game won't run on Windows XP: th145.exe is not a valid win32 application[edit]

Visual Studio 2012 default setting can prevent compiled applications from being run in Windows XP, even if compatible otherwise.[1]
Use a hex editor[citation needed]
  1. Go to the installation folder.
  2. Make backup copy of the th145.exe file.
  3. Open th145.exe with a hex editor such as HxD.
  4. Goto offset 180 and offset 188, then change each value of 06 to 05 like the following line:
    • 05 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 05 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
  5. Save the modified th145.exe file.
