NOLF 1 Not Working


Recommended Posts

I just got this game as a gift and I've been trying to get it to work and I just got past the issue of patching it to work on a 64x bit machine. Now, I just found out about SafeDisc and how it has screwed all older physical PC Games. I found out about the issue from the error the game gave me saying "Access Denied: Please login with administrator privileges and try again". I was looking at a thread on this site and still couldn't find a solution. Most referenced a mod for NOLF called no CD or something but the only one I could find kept throwing me errors too. I'm really looking forward to playing this game so please respond ASAP. Thank you for your time. This was the thread I was looking at:

EDIT:  I just saw that the user Eliteone posted a mod called no CD NOLF; however, it says "Sorry, you aren't permitted to download this file". What does that mean? Why can't I download it? Also, I didn't get the Game of the Year Edition, should I return my original copy and get the GOTY edition? Would that fix my issue?

The original NOLF (non-Gotty) unfortunately won't install to Windows 10

The GOTY edition will however.

i have an original NOLF 1 with all the patches running on an old 32 bit machine.  I want to move it to my Windows 10 machine, i have not been able to get working (with the regedit approach).    I think, based on what i have read here, i will just download the GOTY version.  Does that sound right?  will i still need to have the disc1 in the drive to play the game?    Thanks for your help!

Yes you would need to use the GOTY version to play on Windows 10.

All versions will actually run in windows 10 when updated to 1.004, but the versions below (and updates up to 1.003) came with a 16 bit installers which won't run in newer versions of windows.

However when the game is installed and patched up to 1.004, it should work.

The 64 bit regkey is different though. So just adding the 32 bit regkey won't work. You need to add Wow6432Node\ in the regkey path on windows 7 or newer. Just edit the regkey before installing it.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Monolith Productions\No One Lives Forever\1.0\

The WorkingDirectory path needs to be correct as well, default would be "C:\Program Files\Fox\No one Lives Forever\"  I believe. Change it to where your nolf install is located.

Here's my working windows 10 nolf.reg file for reference:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Monolith Productions\No One Lives Forever\1.0]
"GameOfTheYear"=dword:00000001
"WorkingDirectory"="D:\\NOLF"
"Update Command Line"="-rez Nolfu003.rez -rez Nolfcres003.rez -rez NolfGoty.rez"
"Version"="1.004"

For me, I just got the GOTY version and it worked for me. However, there is a website made by the fans for the fans to try and revive the old NOLF games, even Contract Jack. The installers come with the updated patches, a NO CD crack, and widescreen support. I'll drop the link here: http://nolfrevival.tk/. Also, click the Mega Mirror links and then click the full download link because otherwise you download the game into different parts. After that it's as basic as choosing a directory.

All the games are here on in the downloads section here on the forum.
