    no need now. but thanks anyway :)

    How to manually extract game files: (I already had extracted the entire disk to a folder first, not sure if you will need to.)

    1. Download InstallShield Cabinet File Viewer.
    2. Create a folder to put everything in (ex. C:\Program Files\TerminatorSalvation\). Also add the following subdirectories inside of that:
    \TerminatorSalvation\data\
    \TerminatorSalvation\data\videos\
    \TerminatorSalvation\data\cutscenes\
    \TerminatorSalvation\data\movies\
    \TerminatorSalvation\bundles\
    3. In your Terminator Salvation installation disk, there should be a file named data1.hdr. Open this file with InstallShield Cabinet File Viewer.
    4. Go to View—> Components
    5. Extract the file located inside GrinExes to the main folder you created. (\TerminatorSalvation\)
    6. GrinExesVistaOnly to main folder (if on vista, did not show any in there for me on XP)
    7. USR_bundles to \TerminatorSalvation\bundles\
    8. USR_video to \TerminatorSalvation\videos\
    9. USR_root to \TerminatorSalvation\
    10. USR_context_(your language) (ex. the file related to your preferred language) to \TerminatorSalvation\
    11. Basically, inside the data folder create three subfolders named videos, cutscenes and movies. Move all extracted .bik video files to the videos folder. Also, move all .fcl, .bundle and .lhd files to the bundles folder (rename Bundles folder to bundles if it starts with an uppercase - or the game will crash).
    12. In the end the structure of your folder (created in step 2) should look something like below:

    [​IMG]


    13. Run TerminatorSalvation.exe to run the game. (Make sure you rename the Bundles, Videos and Data folders so that they start with lowercase letters. Also you might try rebooting the machine and launching the game if you made any changes to the files/structure.)

    I'm gonna play this on my PS3. its the type of game more suited for it imo. not just that but high resolution and AA + DRM and bugs for pc ...just not too important for a Linear, quick action, 1 time play through, beat in 6 hours or whatever type of game like this
    i save the good FPS, games, non linear...etc i'd likely replay for PC

    Seems like another far cry 2 thing.

    Great title, attractive title even. Bad game as a result

    Got the CD of a friend who bought here in Sweden but could not get it to work. So while he was awaiting for help from GRIN or who ever the developers are... I got it to work, from the CD version I mean. There is away around the instalation bug if you know about CAB extraction and all that..
    I am playing it on hard and it is simply to short.
    I give it a 6 of 10 so far. The graphics looks better in all the screen shots etc. I wonder if it's DX10 or 9? :pc1::pc1::pc1::pc1::pc1::pc1::pc1::pc1::pc1::pc1::pc1::pc1::pc1::pc1::pc1::

    Thanx
    By the way, what I did is exactly what StreeTunder is doing on the previous page. So now its no real secret.. It does work

    The game runs flawlessly on my Win 7 64bit RC, albeit, boring as hell. Please don't campare this to Far Cry 2.:3eyes::3eyes::3eyes:
