Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

Fable was originally developed for the Xbox and PC by Lionhead Entertainment, home of famed game designer Peter Molyneux, the brains behind legendary “god games” like Populous and Black and White, as well as previous Feral releases like The Movies. Molyneux’s games often deal with the balance between good and evil, and the choices that we make that take us down one path or the other. Fable is no different in that regard: In this RPG, the choices you make directly affect your character.

The plot, in a nutshell, is that you’re a young lad who has been spared from his village’s destruction at the hands of brigands. You’re cast into a reluctant student at an academy where you learn the art and trade of becoming a hero. You’re faced with key decisions along the way—do you steal from people? If so, you’ll develop a reputation as a thief. Do you help a mother with her sick child? If so, you’ll earn the respect and love of the townspeople. Those decisions will have a cumulative effect both on your character’s appearance and abilities, though the game’s designers don’t seek to punish you or reward you one way or the other.

Unlike many RPGs, you don’t start out creating a character with a profession—no level one half-elf lawful evil rangers here. You’re only allowed to play as a male, and as you play, you can decide what your character’s strengths will be, determining for example if they’ll be better and wielding swords or shooting arrows. Again, this will even affect your character’s physical appearance. Emphasise melee combat such as sword fighting early on, and expect to appear more heavily muscled and scarred. Focus on crossbows and expect to have a leaner physique. Focus on magic, and find yourself ultimately covered in arcane tattoos. Eat and drink to excess and develop a gut. It’s quite remarkable. You can even develop friendships and fall in love; there are dozens of hours’ worth of quests and missions to go on; you can also boast of your skill and accept challenges that will give you special rewards.

The game plays in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. Downloads 1–6 is v. 1.0.1, released in 2009, and is the latest version.

Downloads 1–6 are the parts of a zipped disc image of the game DVD Version 1.0.1

Download 7 is a trimmed down image of the game DVD that mainly contains the large SafeDisc file that the game looks for in order to play. Burn this image to a single layer DVD, mount the DVD, and the game will play. Using the trimmed DVD avoids the unattractive alternative of burning the full game disc image to a double layer DVD to achieve the same outcome. Mounted disc images are not sufficient to play. Also I do not have a No-DVD for this version of the game.

Download 8 is a crack for version 1.0 of the game to make it not need a CD when launched. It does not work with version 1.0.1 (Downloads 1–6) but does work with Downloads 9–14.
Please note:
- When using this crack you'll most likely receive a message saying 'Fable - The Lost Chapters.rsrc' is unable to be patched; this is fine, simply select to skip this file as the crack will still work without patching this particular file.
- It is also recommended to deselect 'Pause iTunes while playing Fable - The Lost Chapters' in the game's options as some users have reported a bug that causes the game to crash due to iTunes compatibility and version 1.0 of the game.

Downloads 9–14 are the parts of a zipped disc image of the game DVD Version 1.0

Your Toast suggestion was vital to this process. I used the native leopard DVD burner at first and it didn't work, which is funny because I believe I've used the native DVD burner before and the results were fine (Doom 3). Toast 10.0.3 helped me burn a disc which works with my setup. A little software technicality will lead to big changes in the physical media. Excuse me if this is tangential, but maybe Roxio sought to profit from what was considered "piracy" back in the day?

@yobby. Not sure what to suggest. Two others in comments below have had no problem with a G5. I just got out my old iMac G5, 17 inch and installed v 1.0.1 of the game. It complains about a low spec Mac but plays OK under Leopard 10.5.8 when I mount a DVD made from the play disc dmg. I made the play DVD by dragging the dmg file to an open Toast window for images and clicked Burn. Sorry I cannot help.

The problem is happening in Leopard 10.5.8

iMac G5 2GHz CPU 1Gb SRAM, 21Gb HD free space.

I've had a few issues. I first tried installing and NoDVD cracking version 1.0, the crack worked but executing Fable usually instantly results in a crash with a "Fable TLC quit unexpectedly" window. On rare occasion it DOES work and runs fine under max settings. I tried my luck at burning the trimmed SafeDisc file and using it with Fable TLC 1.0.1, this version always compiles but always asks for the DVD ROM to be inserted, even if the burned SafeDisc is in the disc drive.

Any idea on what to do here? I've made sure that every other unnecessary application is closed before trying. I'd be fine just buying the disc at some point, but the nature of the problems lead me to think that having the real disc probably wouldn't even help.

This port had quite a rough story, being planned to launch roughly slightly after the PC release in late 2005; but was pushed almost three years back all the way to March 2008 - apparently due to licensing deadlocks and other issues with Lionhead, Feral having problems with former porter Zonic going kaput (and hiring Robosoft as their new porting buddy for a while), and the advent of Intel chipsets in the interim between the announcement and the release of the game.

Similarly, Black & White 2, another Lionhead game (not yet on this site but probably will soon); had a Mac port in the cards some point in late 2005 or early 2006 but was pushed even further to January 2009.

Yeah, it does work on El Capitan too.

Runs well on my iMac G5. Has anyone tested it under an Intel Mac with a newer Mac OS like EL Capitan? It does not start up on my Mac mini 2010.

I can confirm that the 1.0 NoDVD is not working with this 1.0.1 version of the game. I burned the Trimmed_Play_Disc.dmg and the game played fine with that on my G5/10.5 rig.

@ dustinschings: Have you tested the NoDVD that you uploaded with the version of the game here ? The patch is for v. 1.0 not 1.0.1 of the game. I have this NODVD but did not upload it because I found that it refused to apply itself to v. 1.0.1 of the game that we have here. I did not see the point in uploading a NoDVD that is not applicable to this version of the game.

Outstanding upload! Thank you so much for taking the time to upload this "beast" to here.
