Blade Runner Installer 2012 für Windows XP, Windows Vista und Windows 7. Last Update: 04.08.2013 – 10:42


This file is necessary to display the sprites and images from Act 2 to Act 4 (Disc 2 to Disc 4).

It basically contains all CDFRAMES.DAT from Disc 1 to Disc 4 merged in a single, bigger file called HDFRAMES.DAT. Please download this file (310 Mb) and copy it in your Blade Runner game directory. Alternatively, you can manually copy the CDFRAMES.DAT file from the respective Disc, e.g. Act 3 – Disc 3 and so on.

Blade Runner works great on Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 (x64).


Make sure your discs are clean (of scratches),  if it takes a long time to install the game! 😃

CPU Patch

Big thanks to Aqrit’s DirectDraw Wrapper –

This file is already included in the new installation software.


In order to get pass “BLADE.EXE stopped working” error:

  • After every reboot, just remount the CD1 of the installation, re-open the installer executabile and proceed until language selection, CD loading and installation target path so you’re able to proceed with the install, BUT, just don’t proceed, leave everything like that and start the blade2012.exe to start the game. I don’t know why, but the error will not appear and you can play the game.
  • Don’t forget to set DPI scalling by Application under Compatibility for blade2012.exe before you start, on Windows 10 x64 (tested).
  • Delete the ddraw.dll in your game directory.

Have fun!

    Perhaps it will come to buying a CD burner 😁😅 They are all mounted to drives but each CD to a seperate drives which I guess you’re right in that being the problem here. You’re doing a good job

  2. @rosenburger Jep, that’s exactly the same as in my drive. Did you also mount all other ISO files (double-click)? If you have only mounted the ISO file of the first CD as a drive, the installer does not know where the CDs are. All CDs must be mounted as a drive. Alternatively, try the original version of the installer and burn the CD images to 4 CDs. Then it definitely works! 😀

  3. Thanks, but I need a screenshot of the files in the drive! 😁 Like this:

    ok that did the same as before sorry but thanks for your continued efforts.

    This is the game files I got

    And this is the way it is pretending I have 4 disc drives

    Just say whatever you want to see and i’ll get it to you

  5. @rosenburger
    No problem! We want to make as many retro games as possible compatible with new PCs: D

    I have updated the file again, time to give it another shot!

    If it doesn’t work now, please send me screenshots of the folder structures of your images. It is possible that these do not correspond to the original and therefore the installation software does not recognize the paths.

    @malte Thankyou for your vyer quick efforts. It’s really amazing you’d actually do that. However, it is the same as before with it simply asking to insert CD 2 as before.

  7. @rosenburger

    I updated the installer. Please download it from this link, it’s „Beta“:

    I’d appreciate it if you could tell me if it works!

    Thanks for replying so quickly, Malte. You’re doing a really good job on here. With what I have I can play what’s on the first disc but thankyou anyway. The game came out in 97 so whats a bit longer waiting until I can play it properly, really? No disc drive so gonna have to wait.


  9. Hey rosenburger, thanks for your comment! The problem is that the installer only checks the drive you used for the first CD or the first ISO image. If you mount the ISO files to different drives (e.g. E:, F: and G:), the installer will only check the drive, you used for the first disc or first image.

    I will correct this in a new version of the installer.

    You could try to burn the ISO images to a disc – that’d work.

    Hi, i’m having a lot of trouble installing this. This is my first time installing an old game like this and i’m probably being stupid but your help would be veyr welcome. I’ve downloaded the game files (I think) in a folder called bladerunner iso. When I try the installer it works for a bit and then says „insert CD 2“ which I don’t know how to resolve. I downloaded the HDFRAMES.DAT but I don’t understand what i’m actually meant to do with it

  11. Thanks, italian is now supported! 😃

  12. I managed to use the installer in here to install and play the Italian version of this game, even though italian isn’t supported by the installer.
    At the end of the installation, one must open the BLADE.INI file inside the game folder and modify it so:


  13. Hey 😃 Das geht nur, wenn die Spieldateien auf Deutsch sind, ansonsten leider nicht, sorry

    HI there,

    gibt es eine Möglichkeit das Game auf Deutsch zu spielen? Ich habe in der .ini schon auf GER umgestellt, aber dann startet das Spiel nicht.
