Blade Runner Installer for Windows 7, 8.1 and Windows 10.


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!

      Did someone managed to play in another language than english ?
      If I try to change the language in blade.ini (for example „Language=FRE“), the game don’t launch, I have just a few seconds of black…

      @Hexaae Great, thanks for your input! I’ll integrate this into the installer in the future.

      For those without a physical CD drive, edit the BLADE.EXE as follows (1st colum original, 2nd column patched):

      0000FFF1: 75 90
      0000FFF2: 31 90
      00010028: 7E 90
      00010029: A5 90

      Enjoy the game running fine even on modern PCs without CD drives! 😎

      For those who have black screen, silent crash back to desktop when you start the installed game here is the cause:
      many modern PCs don’t have a CD drive (especially laptops), and when the games starts it still checks for it and hence the silent crash to desktop.
      This game requires a no-CD patch fix.

      Only possible workaround for those without a CD is to mount any .ISO in Windows 10 (double-click on it). This will be enough to trick the game into thinking there’s a CD drive and will make the game start. Tested myself.

      Who’s able to fix the game removing that part of code?

      Hi @TomGoodchild

      Yes, that’s right, all files should be in the same directory like the „BLADE.exe“. Did you try running the game „as an administrator“? Did you try the compatibility mode?
      You need to insert the first disc in order to launch the game. This should ideally be the same drive letter which has been used with the installer.

      Hey people.

      I am also having trouble getting this working under windows 10. The game installs fine from the four original discs, and I copied over the new HDFRAMES.DAT file, but the game doesn’t fully launch. The exe starts and seems to run for a small while, ,but then closes without any warning or message from the system.

      Does it need a certain disc in before it will run? Also, Malte asked for a screenshot of the directory structure of the install, I think. Well, my install dumps everything into the root directory of „Bladerunner“.

      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! 😎
