Ive refreshed the exult pnd for playing ultima 7 and seperent isle.
Its based on the latest git and uses SDL2. I built it with codeblocks and left everything default.

So this means it looks for data under <appdata>/share/exult now instead of the root.

Music and SFX are found below. Extract contents to <appdata>/share/exult

Note: the intro video is causing a segfault, for now just hit escape before it runs.
Note 2: exult does work with the gog releases.

Nice, I've finished both U7 and Serpent Isle on my Pandora with the earlier version of your pnd :)

@gunrock well i hope it didnt cost that much. You can get all the ultima dirt cheap on gog.com. They also go on sale pretty often.
Well, when I looked on GOG it was around 40 DKK which is about 5 GBP (I still convert everything back to quid) and the sealed, Ultima Collection was 30 USD. I prefer physical, plus it has all the other Ultima's on it, if I ever fancy playing IV, etc.

However, in the Spring sale I see its now less than 10 DKK, which is just over 1 GBP and Im starting to get buyer's remorse!

Thanks @Pickle, I have done as uou suggested, seemed a pretty good idea, but I won't keep the Ultima Collection sealed, I'll probably sell it. I didn't want for collecting, I just prefer physical as I can always pass it on at a loss (or occasionally a profit).

Pickle, I’m so sorry, I’ve tried every possible way to place the GOG data files, I still get the error that data wasn’t found. Is it not in the .exult hidden folders? They auto generate, like the CFG, and have a sub folder in each game folder, called gamedat?

i will post some more specific details where the data files are
help me pickle! I have the GOG release and every time I try to run Exult, it states it cant find the data files. Where do I put them? I followed the instructions by creating a blackgate folder under exult and it doesn't work. Also tried the folder in the hidden .exult subfolder. What do I do now?

UPDATE: So after reading the included instructions (which are out of date), the details provided by @Pickle earlier in this thread AND after extracting the PND and studying the paths, I copied the GOG files into 5 different locations on my SD card (Why 5? I wanted to see if I could get it working first then use trial and error to gradually eliminate the locations that weren't needed), at long last I could play it on my Pandora.

I kick myself that I didn't keep careful notes when deleting the copies not needed. I can still run my game, yes, but I don't have any spoken voice. Because if I had speech on my Pandora install earlier *, I certainly don't now (Started new game to confirm) Which would appear to indicate that one of the "unnecessary" install locations on my SD card is being read by the PND for the speech - and this is not the same location that the PND reads the rest of the game data from! Which wouldn't surprise me if this did prove to be the case seeing as how unclear the locations are for this port! :|

I tried downloading the additional Exult files for digital audio etc. but still no speech in my current set up.

* (I'm sure I had speech in the game previously on my Pandora. Unless I'm confusing my memory with the GOG version installed on PC?)

@Arkay Firestar - Have you solved it yet? Let me know if not and I can at least dig out a location I found that will, at least, let you play the game on your Pandora.

I cant get speech working anymore though. (See above for details)
