Where the movie ends, the true terror begins. In the frozen wastelands of Antarctica, a mysterious, shape-shifting alien life form has wiped out an American scientific outpost. You're the leader of a military rescue team sent to investigate the carnage. Trapped by the elements and infected by a horrific enemy, you must keep your squad together. Control their fear and gain their trust, and you might just survive the Thing.
you need VMware Workstation Player or virtualbox your choice or just a old 32 bit windows xp computer
**** i use VMware Workstation 12 Player and 32 bit windows xp ( there is a lot of VMware but you just need a player the old VMware seem to work the best for playing video games in general )
install the game and editor files on the 32 bit windows xp / VMare
please note to share mods you will need to transfer files onto your original
then simply follow viruspunks from the editor files download which is :
First you’ll need to place the editor .exe and the two .dll files in your The Thing/bin folder. Then place all the .ent files in your The Thing/data/levels folder.
Rename Evolva Editor GUI.dll as EditorGUI.dll in the game’s directory. Hit start, hit run, then type in cmd. CD into your The Thing/bin directory. Type ‘regsvr32 editorgui.dll’ without quotations. If HA312W32 is in your bin folder along with Evolva.dll, you should get a ton of messages about HeapAgent, just select ‘yes’ to all and it should finally say EditorGUI.dll registered successfully.
Go into your registry by hitting Start > Run > type ‘regedit’. Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Computer Artworks > The Thing > 1.0.
You will need to add the following strings to your registry along with these values:
String: FullScreen Value: 0
String: DoLevelSelect Value: 1
String: LevelSelect1 Value: choose any level name (level3a, etc)
String: WantEditor Value: 1 *IMPORTANT*
Fire up the editor .exe and select Level Select to load your level. Press F11 to go into editor mode. First time you do this you should get messages about HeapAgent, just select ‘yes’ to all.
