Rise of the Witch-king No-DVD Image for Windows 10

By The Smoking Man™ - 9th August 2015 - 01:51 AM


As you may have noticed, most Rise of the Witch-king players now use the popular .mds/.mdf DVD image files to play the game, rather than inserting their physical disc each time they want to start a match.

The old DVD image files worked well all the way from Windows XP to Windows 8.1. However they no longer seem to work on Windows 10. In Windows 10, you are unable to properly mount the image files and will get a "Please insert the correct CD-ROM, select OK and restart application" error when launching the game.

To fix this issue we worked hard on a new set of image files that are compatible with Windows 10. Simply download and extract the two files inside the RotWk_Maxi_TheSmokingMan.rar archive, and mount the .mds file using the virtual disc software of your choice (Daemon Tools, Alcohol, WinCDEmu, etc.). Please note that while the download size of the .rar is only 6 MB, when extracted it will take up about 2.5 GB worth of space, just like the old image. Be sure you have enough space on your drive before extracting it.

Note: When using Daemon Tools, make sure you mount the image files to SCSI rather than mounting them the default way. This is also valid for other software although they should do it automatically for you.

The files were compiled by The Smoking Man, with special thanks to Phoenix, SpecialGuest, IceVice and Motoma who helped out where needed.
