Like emulate mouse/keyboard combinations to the controller? I know you did this for DIno Crisis, but I don't know how to do it for the second one. I've already set usemacros and controller to true. Anything else I havve to add in the ini file?


The keyboard emulation is done with the option macros. On Dino crisis 1, it is like this:
macros=Up,Down,Left,Right,c,v,d,z,b,b,x,x,F5,A,F9,w,Up,Down,Left,Right

which button corresponds to which keys depends only on the order that the keys are listed. Check the Dino Crisis 1 help page and you will figure it out

Can you create patches for Star Wars Episode 1 Racer (Podracer) and Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace games that enable dumping textures and replacing them with custom higher resolution ones? Widescreen hacks with proper aspect ratio would also be nice. These games work very well on modern systems via dgVoodoo. I think they use the same game engine.


I have included a patch for The phantom menace in the last update, duplicate the ini file to use it with the other game.
I also fixed a few other issues, but widescreen patches (for me at least) are not trivial. There are probably people out there
that can do that kind of stuff easily, but for me it is very time consuming

Hey Peixoto! I've been trying out your patch for a few aof my different games - it exciting to try but I've had issues with each game I've tried so far. My version of Project Eden crashes everytime I try to go to the graphics settings, so I was hoping your patch would let me change my resolution, but it doesn't work for that, but it did force the fmv's into the same window so that was nice! I tried Dino Crisis 1, and it makes it hd and let me use my controller but the fmv's don't display at all, just sound. And now I'm trying Onimusha, and it crashes as soon as it tries to load, and I assume it's at version 1.2, but if I try the patch 1.2 it gives me a different error that's in chinese or something. I haven't tried any others yet, but plan on it! Is there something I'm doing wrong on these games? I appreciate the work you've done so far though! :) Thanks!

Sorry for my ignorance but are these the full games you can download or just add-ons to the games you already have???

Thanks

Hi Peixoto! You tool seems to be very nice, but I have an issue with Tomb Raider II. When I use your patch, the music skipping or not playing at all. Do you know if there is an easy fix for that? It plays fine when I run the game straight out of Steam

Do you need to know more details about my pc?

In your ignorance, what exactly do you think "patches" would imply?

While some message boards are considerably more permissive about such subject matter, the distribution of full games is usually illegal and discussion of such distribution is consequently discouraged here.

Have you installed the multipatch as instructed in the help?

Also, try going in the sound menu and change the music volume

Yes, I've installed the multipatch. Changing the volume doesn't help. Also, after some saves and loads the music will play correctly, but then it will disappear after another load or changing the level. So it is pretty random. It will also play nice if I Alt+Tab out of the game.

I was also able to break the overlay inventory :D After some play time (or alt tabbing, I am not sure) the item models disappeared, leaving only the descriptions.

Peixoto, sorry it took me so long to get back to you! Life got in the way a bit lol I have the log for Dino Crisis 1 so far, do you want the text just pasted here or should I upload it to something like my google drive and post a link? I'll get the one for Project Eden tomorrow or Friday. I got Onimusha to finally work, just reinstalled the game completely and then followed your patching instructions and it worked great! So thanks for that! Do you make these patches yourself? If you do - I have a few old games that don't quite run right in windows 10 that I would love to get working in there instead of relying on virtual machines running windows xp! Anyway, let me me know about the log file, and thanks again for all your work! Appreciate it!

Just paste it here, it would help if you an also donwload apitrace (https://github.com/apitrace/apitrace ), paste ddaw.dll or d3d8.ddl in the game directory play until you find the bug and then upload somewhere the .trace file it will create . That is the best way to solve bugs... the error log is informative but apitrace logs all DirectDraw\Direct3D calls.

It wouldn't let me upload the trace file, I tried to add .jpg to the end to trick it but it was 18mb and it wouldn't allow more than 5mb so I uploaded the trace file to my google drive - here is the link. I'll do the same for the other games I have had issues with. So far, this is all Dino Crisis 1.
Thanks! :) https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B51VN ... WdiSGhXSXM

i played dino crisis with the patch and worked just fine
but i have a problem with dino crisis 2
from your previous replies you suggested creating ini file
my game keeps repeating the intro scene without menu appearance
i think that is because no playpad is connected, just the keyboard
could you please help me with disabling it as i don't have experience in this

Hi, Peixoto! It will be very nice if you make support for another old game which works only in 640X480 - Martian Gothic.
I've tried to apply your other game's patches on it, and it looks great in hi-res, except couple things:
Wrong appearance of inventory screen (F4), Impossible of texture swapping - all textures in a memory are very fragmented.

Your tool might bring to this game hi-res support, perfect 3D model scaling, support of Xinput controllers. Also, all backgrounds in MG
performed in 24 bit color depth, but game displays them only in 16 bit color mode, it will be awesome to fix this.

Hi Peixoto,

very good job on fixing the GUI scaling thing for unreal.

I'm with the 227 patch development for unreal and would like to integrate that directly into the patch. It's been a long standing issue where the GUI is exceptionally tiny with no real way to fix it without upscaling the heck out of textures. It seem the method you use works perfectly.

can you share with me how the opengl hook accomplishes this?

Hello Casey, here is the autohotkey script that implements the necessary hooks. The functions of interest are:

ChangeDisplaySettingsA
EnumDisplaySettingsA
GetDC
MoveWindow
glViewport
glScissor

Thanks Peixoto, this will surely be useful. I will be sure to get you credited if we can implement this, which will make many people happy.
