  3. Extract all files and replace the original game files with the patch files. Run PAL.exe and you’re all set!

    Do you know how to get the patch to work. I do not know if it’s window compatibility issue , but the translation come out with scramble letters.If so do you have link were I may get more detail instruction or even a you tube video?

    Also since this seem to be a place for dedicate Chinese paladin and as someone who love a lot Asian culture. I would like to see this fan community grows. I would recommend that when 軒轅劍外傳穹之扉(The Gate of Firmament) get steam release date you try to spread word.While it’s not Chinese paladin title it’s from the same company and getting an English language release.As someone who is lurker and has seen many small community like this expand and eventual forge a way for foreign thing to get official release in the west.I am willing to make a list of things I seen works if your interested.Either way keep of the good work with this fan-site.
    Apologies for any grammatical mistake English is not my first language.

    Hi there, I extracted all the files and tried to run the game and it showed up with this error. Please advise.

    “Error accessing system registry”
    “Unexpected error; quitting”

    I’m on Windows 10, if that helps with your troubleshooting

    I managed to do the transaltion and play the game. The only problem is that I can’t run the game in fullscreen. How do I manage to put the game in fullscreen?

  5. Maria says:

    I CANNOT get the game up, PLEASE help!!

  6. Liz says:

    I managed the game to work. Just follow the instructions above, but when you start the PAL.exe file, make sure to run as administrator. Simply just right click and then choose the “Run as administrator” option.
