Update

New download link - on the 1st page - for those having trouble with onedrive

Added support for DirectX 8

A little more compatibility for forced resolution on DirectX 6 and earlier, but nothing major for now

Added 1280 x 720 to the resolutions enumerated on DirectX 7 and earlier, but forgot 1920 x 1080 and OpenGl

New entry: Max Payne with a fix for missing audio with simple DirectSound Hooks. Full 3D sound\EAX emulation
will come in the future

Arcturus: The Curse and Loss of Divinity (DX6-): works with resolution forcing, but dialogue boxes have ugly seams that makes it undesirable. Same as other methods for forcing resolution though.

Every Extend (DX8): Works with resolution forcing. Very minor UI artifacts.

Farscape: The Game (DX8): UI is stuck in top left portion of the screen when resolution is forced.

Gorky17: Combat models seems to work now.

Hundred Swords (DX8): Failed to initialize Direct3D.

Shikigami no Shiro III (DX8): Seems to be forced into a small window. I don't recommend trying this on Windows 10 (it relies on enabling secdrv.sys).

Unreal Tournament 2004 (DX8): Only see top left of the menu screen when resolution is forced (not DPI related).

Except for Gorky17, none of these are important, I'm just testing because I'm curious how well DX8 resolution forcing posting and reporting my observations so no one else wastes their time trying games that won't work (yet).

Tomb Raider 3 (clean Steam version) gives me this error with new patcher (strange, game worked fine before)

Dark Reign 2 still has issues with cut-scenes, but I found this interesting, if you select the second GPU choice:

1279x720?

I am trying to run Outwars from help.exe, but the injector just exits after patching.
