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!

      I was having Problems getting into act 2, the game would just crash. I suspected it is because of the order I mounted the discs in during install. I fixed this by copying the contents of each disc into a single folder and turning that folder into its own ISO. Then I re-ran the installer with that single ISO mounted and then ran the put the patch into the new installation folder. Everything works great now.

      FIXED! 😀 for anyone who has the same problem; open the aqrit.cfg config file in the game directory and change the NoVideoMemory setting from 1 to 0, and save the file. Now it works perfectly. Thanks for the person below who mentioned this file in another context! =)

      Thanks for the patch, but I can not play the game. I can install it, but after that when starting I only get sound and no image (and I copied over hdframes…) no matter what compatibility settings I try.

      my specs are:

      core i5-7500
      8 gb gddr 5 geforce gtx 1070
      16 gb DDR4 RAM
      256 GB SSD
      Windows 10 64-bit

      Anyone got any idea how I would be able to play this game? 🙁 XD

      Hi Malte. Firstly, thanks for the awesome job with this! I was hoping you could help me as I’m still having issues with the shooting range not working and Zuben not showing up at the locked door in Act 1.

      I have done a fresh install using the latest ngi and adding the HDFRAMES.DAT to the folder, but still no joy 🙁

      For reference, the game is installed in E:/Blade Runner and the settings for the aqrit config file are as follows:

      RealDDrawPath = AUTO
      BltMirror = 2
      BltNoTearing = 1
      ColorFix = 1
      DisableHighDpiScaling = 1
      FakeVsync = 1
      ForceDirectDrawEmulation = 1
      SingleProcAffinity = 1
      ForceBltNoTearing = 1
      NoVideoMemory = 1

      Is there an additional step I’m missing/further changes needed to the aqrit config file?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated 🙂

      Thanks for the reply. Are br_ngi.exe (in this thread) and the main Blade Runner Installer.exe identical, apart from one of them requiring administration rights to run for better compatibility? I think all four CDFRAMES.dat from each disc come to over 600MB in total in comparison to the HDFRAMES file, so I’m guessing they must share a lot of similar data.

      I extracted all four disc’s content to one folder, and merged them into one backup file for easy installation from the hard drive, and also to test to see if the installer would recognise the CD1,CD2 etc folders on their own (and not require a disc of the correct name) 🙂 The game installed without any problems. I added your installer and HDFRAMES to unzip for C:\Games\Blade Runner

      There are probably files I could have left out but it works with no problems, if I find any problems I’ll post them, although they may be more related to my hardware as the laptop only uses integrated graphics

      @AceRunner Thanks for your comment! The CDFRAMES.DAT is contained on the first disc of Blade Runner. The installer renames this one to HDFRAMES.DAT in order to see all sprites from the first chapter of the game, which disc one respectively contains. The same thing does the original installer by the way.
      The small HDFRAMES.DAT has to be replaced with the bigger HDRAMES.DAT from this posting! 😎

      I have a version of the original game from 1998 (four blue discs, large box), so I have backed it up to four ISO’s to test. Before adding the 236MB zipped HDFRAMES.dat from here to the installation folder, I noticed the installer seems to already add a smaller HDFRAMES, at 67 MB (the file date is 1997, but there is no HDFRAMES shown on any discs).

      Does the smaller HDFRAMES just contain fixes, but without any combined CDFRAMES data for the game stored in other discs to work? If I use the smaller HDFRAMES, I may need to copy over the right CDFRAMES dat from each disc? 🙂 Not that I would, just out of interest

      Aside from changing the DPI settings from within the BLADE.EXE properties as suggested, it seems to run ok 🙂 Thanks

      I’ve run the installer and move the hdframes.dat file to the game diretory and mounted the ISO of CD one. Then I click on the Blade application file, the screen goes black for a few second then back to windows. Is there something else I have to do?

      Hey @chermegency7712 … since several people already have mentioned this bug, I will have another look at the code and test if I can reproduce it anywhere. I tried the installer again with my Blade Runner CDs yesterday. For me it works on two PCs without any problems which makes it difficult to find a bug.
      Could you give me the source where you apparently downloaded the game? Otherwise just buy it on ebay … shouldn’t be that expensive and it’s nice to have in the collection 😎

      Hey Malte, wanted to express my appreciation for the installer you created. I’ve encountered a problem nobody else seems to have though. When I attempt to install the game using either the default installer above or your updated installer in the comments, it always seems to stall at „2.TLK“ and will not go any further. I’ve tried several things like using different rips of the game, adjusting compatibility settings for the installer, using different image mounting software, and even burning the images to physical CD’s, but the problem still prevails. You have any idea what the problem might be?
