For all those with PCs and Windows 10, please test this standalone EXE:
https://necromanthus.com/Games/ShockWave/hopeless.html
If everything runs fine on your machines, I'm thinking to create standalone/offline versions
for all the SW games.

You cannot run DCR files in the IE11 browser, you cannot run EXE with everything packed inside of it, you cannot run anything.
:lol:
That EXE runs just fine on 5 different laptops (even without Shockwave plugin installed).
:wink:

p.s.
What graphics card do you have on that laptop?

So you both have PCs with Nvidia cards ...
It seems that Shockwave stopped working on Nvidia cards starting with driver version 368.XX
Let's forget about the EXE file for now.
Let's try to fix the SW plugin on your machine:
- be sure the Shockwave plugin is installed
- overwrite the "Windows\SysWOW64\Adobe\Shockwave 12\Xtras\Shockwave 3d Asset.x32" with the file provided here.
Shockwave3D_fix.zip
- restart your PC and try to play this game (use the IE11 32bit browser):
https://necromanthus.com/Games/ShockWave/hopeless.html
Please tell me the result.

Here I have 2 laptops:
1) a very cheap one with Core i3 and onboard graphics
2) an expensive one with Core i7 and GTX 1060
ALL the shockwave games run perfect in IE11.
Not a single crash.

Do you have any laptop to test?

OK.
So the EXE file ran just fine on your laptops.
I've updated the EXE file with the hack for Nvidia graphic cards.
Please try it again (on all the laptops and desktops you have).

good luck.

p.s.
Try to launch it as Administrator in case of permission issues.
