Don't forget you need to use MCPatcher or Optifine for this texture pack to look perfect, it uses Connected Textures.  At this point 1.8 does not have a working MCP or Optifine.  I have left all of the 1.7 support and will migrate as soon as something is available.

Darklands Classic is about to get Medieval on your .. ahhh, well you get the idea.

I have played computer games longer than most of you have been alive. One of my favourites was the 1990's RPG adventure Darklands from Microprose. This texture pack is my tribute to this much loved and played game.

This texture pack started as a quick tribute. You know change a few key things in your existing pack that are in the video game to give the look and feel to Minecraft. Now, it has evolved into its own fully evolved texture pack. Kyctarniq's is set in the early 20th century before WWII (generally); Not medieval at all. I have just rolled the clock back for Darklands Classic and I love it! I hope you do to.

If you want older versions of this texture pack look in the Update Logs; The links are there.

The best solution I can suggest is Google, what you need to do depends on your OS and the browser.  I can say it is generally quite simple.  The top orange button above to download, open the Minecraft Resouce Pack Folder (can do it inside Minecraft Options->Resource Packs->Open Folder if nothing else) and place the downladed .zip in that folder.  

I hope this helps

I am not surprised it is OLD, 1990 old to be exact. It only has animation for the opening sequence and after that it is a menu and low-res image driven game. No one would play it now but then it was cutting edge.

The font used on menu backgrounds (in game, not main menu) should be white or at least colored in a way that makes it readable on the backgrounds.
