2. Unpack the rar file in any folder, or use the installer to install the game in the desired folder.
3. Run the moac.exe
3.1 the client will update itself
3.2 make sure your firewall (or something else) doesn't block moac.exe and fetchfiles.exe
4. Install Microsoft 'VC runtime redistributable' 2015 or better. You can find it here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145
If you want to try out the Remastered version, you should download the remastered sprite package here: https://www.astonia.eu/rms_clnt.rar
To install the remastered package, you must extract the contents into the main game folder.
Make sure that the files from the "rms" folder in the RAR archive end up in the "../gfx/rms/" folder of the game
Uncheck the "keep launcher open" checkbox if you have any trouble with the launcher options
For Windows XP/Vista users: If the game doesn't run, rename ddraw_winXP-Vista.dll and libcurl_winXP-Vista.dll to ddraw.dll/libcurl.dll and try running the game again. The Windows XP/Vista compatibility dll's were tested/provided by Darkstar!
The game now uses a compatibility layer to run fullscreen. It should automatically stretch to widescreen. If you don't like the look/feel of the DirectX rendering, rename ddraw_oldschol.dll to ddraw.dll. This will make the client use the oldschool direct drawing method again. If you use the old-school version of direct draw, you wll need to set 16 bit color compatibility mode by right-clicking moac.exe.
This game is powered by Dege's awesome direct draw compatibility layer! It converts old rendering methods to modern versions of DirectX! If you have no idea what this means, just take if from me: it's awesome..
