in front-end there is an option in Tools and then Option of your name gamebase.
Here you have to go in "Games" tab and choose Repack unpacked games after playing.
Better choose option Repack them.

now you can zip or rar your games without problems

- Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land v1.24 (Like Odium or Gorky 17)

i need help, i want to run windows games with compatibility mode in windows 10 64 bits
i think will be something like this:
add_clp(-set __compat_layer=win95 %gamefile%)

i use windows 10 64bits
when in a bat file a type:

set __compat_layer=win95 "game.exe"
run game.exe

the game starts with no problem
but i don't know how do it from the gamebase fronend.

edit:
sorry, i was wrong, i did apply the compatibility manually with right click on game.exe before i try the bat file. I delete the compatibility from the game exe and the bat file dont works...
i open cmd and try to set compatibility to game exe with command line, but do not works.

any user with windows 10 64bits will try to run this game:

Arkanoid 3D, with command line, only works with compatibility to windows 95, wich i can only set manually with right click on exe.

thanks.

Running cmd as administrator works!
I try to run gamebase frontend as administrator and with this script:

add_clp(-set __compat_layer=win95)
run_gamefile()

do not works.
