I clicked on "Gamershell" the first time I tried the game from the link I
got from the post from rms. After clicking on the next page on Gamershell
which is http://www.gamershell.com/download_33464.shtml there is a big Red
DOWNLOAD sign I clicked on that and it says "your download is ready,. I
clicked to download and the File Download window comes up and I clicked
"Save" to download bs25.setup.zip to a new folder I made called :BSinfo" .

What I did was download both to my desktop then create two new folders, put
in one and then patch in the other. I then unzip the game archive to reveal the
installer then double-
clicked that to install the game. Then I go to the other folder (the patch
folder) that contains the patch and unzip that.
Then I copy all of the files from Ive just unzipped in the patch folder to the
place where Ive installed the game. The ones you need to make sure you copy are
bsengine.exe (there will already be a file with this name in your Broken Sword
game folder, just replace it with the
lang_en.b25c (This is the English language stuff)
patch000.b25c (Not sure about this one but copy it anyway)

See above. If you put them in seperate folders you will be clear which files to

It's the main game file. See above.

Win7 or XP should make any difference. I think you just havent copied the right
files to the
game folder. See the four mentioned above.

Give the above another go and let me know.
