After you reinstall windows and after you get Everything setup, like Xfire, you realize that Xfire Wont detect LOTD Anymore.
That happens because LOTD is not "officially" installed. You just have the game files, but it is not mentioned into the Windows registry, as it wasnt installed using the installer, as it did on your previous version of Windows.
Here comes this little Online Tool i created, which creates a Registry file that you can run on your Computer to make Windows see it as installed, and therefor Xfire also, as Xfire automatically detects installed games from the registry.
All you have to do is browse to the link bellow and type the path to your LOTD Folder.
Land Of The Dead: Road To Fiddler's Green Registry
Now start writting the path to your LOTD Folder. Make sure you write the right path as the path will be inserted into the file which you will download. Here are a few examples on what your path should look like:
Code: Select all
C:\\Program Files\\Groove Games\\Land Of The Dead
Note: Notice there are two backslashes.
After you run the file, restart Xfire and LOTD Will be there.
You could also add the game manually to your Xfire. For that you need to go to
Look for Land Of the Dead in the List. Select
Manual Detect. Set the game path by browsing to your LOTD.exe file and click Apply. But better use the main solution as its more simple and better to use.
