Is this an original release or is it a fan translation? If the latter is the case can you provide a link to the patch against a original version?

comment:3 by SF/greencis, 7 years ago

It's a fan translation, it can be downloaded here:
http://sq-time.narod.ru/files/SQ1v_RUS.rar
If needed, here is the link to download page:

That looks like a link to a complete copy of the game, which is illegal distribution.

comment:5 by SF/greencis, 7 years ago

Yes, unfortunately it is a full copy of game. The patch was created a long time ago and as it is useless without exe files it was being redistributed with replaced English files. It has spread so wide that the patch was no longer needed as such. Even today, most copies of the game (both on the Internet and on home computers) can be found with installed Russian patch. Finding the pure patch is not quite possible.

comment:6 by lordhoto, 7 years ago

Yes, it's unfortunate, since it's illegal. There'll be no support for that from our side.

If I find this patch in the raw, will you add the support of it?

As I see, it cannot be supported because of another compression type.
Sorry.
