    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
    Music SFX Link

    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.

    Thanks for this @Pickle. Just went off and bought the Ultima Collection from Ebay.

    @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.

    If you fix this typo (or at least clarify exactly what you meant) it may help

    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!

    well you can get both and keep your hard copy sealed :)

    edit: by the way ultima IV should still be free on gog.

    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?

    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?
