However, I get a lot of requests from people who are keen to play with my specials, so here is a compromise that I hope Catz-games players will accept. Please read the readme texts included in the zipfiles carefully; they tell you how to install the files.
These files are only for Petz II upwards; the original Dogz game was never part of a full "petz" game, and nor was the original Catz game, so there is no way to make the one work with the other's game engine.
NOTE to anyone who thinks that they would be getting the full dogz games with this kit; this is not the case, even though the game is fooled into thinking that the Dogz part of Petz is present. There are several important items still missing, such as the sounds resources, but you don't need those items in order to play with my custom-crafted fantasies and species :-)
For Petz 3, 4 or 5 you need to download the relevant Basic Dog Behaviours file (sorry it's a large file) and then you need to download whichever of the small cut-down dogz rez files goes with your version of the game.
For Petz 4 and 5, download the pig also.
Pig file for Petz 4
Pig file for Petz 5
For Petz II, there is just the single large download.
NOTE: These zips contain .DLL files. .DLL files need to be "un-hidden".
Unzip the Dogbehaviours_c4_c5.zip file into the root directory of your game -- where the Petz 5.exe is. This is wherever you installed the game. If you didn't choose your own place for installing the game, that would probably be
C:\Program Files\UBI Soft\Studio Mythos\Petz 5
Everything should then go into the right places. You only have to worry about shuffling stuff around if it doesn't. Then unzip the Rez_d5.zip into your game's Resource directory. If you didn't choose your own place for installing the game, that would probably be
C:\Program Files\UBI Soft\Studio Mythos\Petz 5\Resource
Then make a directory off the Resource one and rename it Dogz. So you would now have this:
C:\Program Files\UBI Soft\Studio Mythos\Petz 5\Resource\Dogz
Unpack the pig into that directory and of course all your dogz breedz -- any breedfiles which you download that are .dog files -- need to go in there.
