Essential improvements[edit]

Play without the disc[edit]

At least copying the game files to a folder on your hard drive is the bare minimum requirement for more fixes, if needed.
Music will now loop correctly, and will play on cue 100% of time as side effects to this fix.
How to run the game completely off the hard drive[citation needed]
  1. Copy all of the files from the disc into a folder of your choosing.
  2. Download the _inmm.dll installer and extract it, then run the installer.
  3. Open your game CD in any application that rips audio CDs, and rip the audio into an easy to find place, preferably into a folder in the game’s directory.
  4. Open _inmmcnf.exe, and on the "Method" tab, change the "default" option to DirectShow.
  5. Select the "_inmm.dll" tab, then click "add".
  6. Go to the folder you ripped the game's music into. Then select all of the "track" files.
  7. Select "Save", go to the folder you installed Darius Gaiden in, then save the ini file.
  8. Close _inmmcnf.exe, then drag darius.bin onto the _inmmcnf.exe file itself. This will pop up a message asking if you want to patch the executable. Select "Ok".
  9. Launch loader.exe whenever you want to play the game, or rename darius.bin to darius.exe, and launch the newly renamed file to skip the launcher.
