Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

http://drakan.ru/445SP1.htm http://www.arokhslair.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2712&start=30 - see Drakon Rider's post I forgot where opcode for stuck in block fix is, it just clears some flag in a specific code path (see Drakon Rider's posts). The code cave for interval thing is at the end of Drag...

Re: The sun in Drakan

I think it's supposed to show cascading menu with databases to allow to select the texture easily. Good point about clicking textures Databases->Textures tab previously having the effect on the list. Also easy to crash it when clicking things randomly, like the menu in the window for selecting lens ...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

I managed to fix that inventory glitch with being able to place wider items outside its boundaries. Uploaded new version as usual.

Re: Drakan won't start in Fullscreen mode. (Edit: Fixed.)

If I'm not mistaken, OOTF far predates CrossFire/SLI in any form

Indeed, you are. BTW, Half-Life 1's default driver configuration on NVIDIA hardware is to use maximum of 2 GPUs. Drakan is set to one, so NVIDIA users have nothing to worry about in that regard.

No, you have 2.135 on the site. I just always update the link for this website in OP.

Re: In need of the REHTool

Published REHTool binaries and code on GitHub.

putting some of the files on Github is a good idea as people are more likely to download from there and generally it's a trusted site

Incidents still happen.

Re: In need of the REHTool

I did download a couple of files from there some time back and at least those that are still relevant appear to be in intact state. That said, data files can't do any harm by themselves as they can't be double clicked and executed. And this type is the most interesting - the level files. There are s...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Interesting. Unexplainable bugs tend to be a common thing with Drakan. Another one for a clever hacker I suppose. Would require deciphering the context from the mess of assembly instructions. Any volunteers? No...I thought so. :) I have some unreleased files, just making things look neater under the...

Re: In need of the REHTool

If we just blindly believe anti-virus software, which is malware itself due to deleting useful files, then we can conclude dgVoodoo is also a virus, my Drakan patch is a virus, NirSofer's utilities are a virus, a cool christmas tree app I have from years ago is a virus etc. I could also write an ant...

Re: Main site content which needs updating

I know, just wanted to say that it works without implying how badly. I forgot to wrote the obvious; but consequently by decreasing game performance, it also vastly decreases player's individual performance in multiplayer.

Re: Drakan Community Patch

Regarding the greyed out Gore Level option in German version, the correct fix would be modifying Dragon.rrc. The problem is finding what bytes exactly to change. As for Drakan on Linux via WINE, it basically goes like this: 1. Install Drakan as usual. 2. Patch it. 3. Install DirectMusic using winetr...

Re: Main site content which needs updating

Some thoughts: Do not install Mplayer as this is obsolete and the Mplayer service no longer exists. Not really an option during setup. Mplayer is automatically installed along with the game when installing from game CD, so it must be uninstalled afterwards. Manually extracting files from the install...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

OK, so I tried modifying Drakan.exe to make the CPUID queries never branch at the "Authentic AMD" check, thus fooling it into thinking that Intel = AMD. The results of the queries after AuthenticAMD check are never used, it just checks for support of Extended 3DNow! instructions and two other thing...
