* These games have a very strange system of saving: for each language version, a separate folder for saving is created.

Therefore, our program supports only those languages, information about which we were able to verify games have long been out of sale, but their distribution model also did not allow access to all language versions of the game, since the principle of regional distribution was used.

 

Problem solving

  1. After enabling the debug mode the game stopped running.

    Answer: delete the configuration files (hp.ini, game.ini, hppoa.ini, user.ini to save the folder), restart the game and to enable debug mode without the help of the program.

  2. The Philosopher's Stone Quidditch blocked.

    Answer: use a check box to unlock Quidditch program or edit the configuration file manually.

  3. The screen resolution in "Goblet of Fire" is not changed.

    Answer: for each new screen resolution creates a new executable file. Therefore, it is better to make a separate label.

 

Changes to the file system and registry

  1. Create a folder AppData\Roaming\hp-gamesnet
  2. Create a file in the Saves folder (with the creation of backups)
  3. Adding or removing Gryffindor quest unlock file
  4. Deathly Hallows. The program creates a file to modify the registry. The user himself decides - to use the file or not. The contents of the file can be viewed in any text editor.
  5. ЛЕГО LEGO Harry Potter: 1-4 years. Amendments are made to the hidden developers configuration file (to solve the Dark Tower), as well as in the service file for the game Steam-version (language switching). In case of damage to the latter request is sufficient to check the Steam client files: corrupted file is automatically overwritten.
