3. From unpacked fix's folder copy events.txt and people.txt to the main folder of the game overriding old files.

4. Delete events.bin from the game's main folder.

5. Download and unpack DxWnd.
Link: https://sourceforge.net/projects/dxwnd/

6. Run dxwnd.exe, then:
I) Click "Edit"
II) Click "Add"
III) Click "..." next to "Path:" and direct it to ..\Prelude.exe (which is in the game's main folder)
IV) Disable "Run in Window"
V) In "Window initial position & size" choose width and height of the resolution you want to use
VI) Click "OK"

7. From now on you can double click the game's icon in DXWnd and run it in Windows 10 in high resolution.
