NOTE: This conversion will either require the DVD in the drive OR files to be copied to your harddrive to play!
There is not really a NoCD crack readily available so some of the game”s configuration files needed to be edited.
These edited files can be downloaded from the link below.

Also, this game doesn”t generally work with Windows Xp, so included is a workaround to make the game run in WinXp.
NOTE: You will still need to install Quicktime 3 as it seems this game has some problems with the more recent versions of Quicktime.

1) Create a Temp folder on the harddrive, call it RIVEN_DVD.
2) Copy all of the contents from disc 1 to this Temp folder.
3) Copy the data folders from the rest of the discs into the Temp folder.
NOTE: The data folder will end up being approximately 2.1GB.

4) Add another folder named Fixes.
Download the “riven_fixes.zip” from here. and extract it to the Fixes folder.
You will now have 3 zip files in the Fixes folder.
These fixes are to run Riven from either the harddrive, or the DVD. Also included is a fixed mohawk.w32 file.

5) Burn the contents of the Temp folder to a DVD with the Label: RIVEN_DVD

Installing:
Once the game has been installed, if you just want to run the game from the DVD disc, then extract the “run from dvdr.zip” file from the Fixes folder, to the games installation folder overwriting the original files.
Also extract the “fixed mohawk.w32”, to the install directory, overwriting the one that is already there.

If you want to run the game directly from the harddrive, then copy the contents from the “data” folder, the “assets1” folder and the “assets2” folder from the dvd, directly to the installation directory.
Then extract the “run from harddrive.zip” file to the games installation folder overwriting the original files.
NOTE: Running the game from the harddrive will take up a rather large amount of space (especaially for such an old game!) but will require no disc swapping or your disc drive to be jammed up with a DVD.
Also extract the “fixed mohawk.w32”, to the install directory, overwriting the one that is already there.
