    Compatibility and HD patch for Worms World Party:

    [​IMG]

    Download:

    http://files.steps.club/wwp/wwp_fix_wrapper_hdresolutions.zip

    This is how to play WWP in [Current Year], there really is no need to waste money on Team 17's cash grab "remaster".

    The official 1.01 patch (aka "Worms World Party UK English Service Pack 1") can be found here. The Mission Packs are also nice to have.


    Compatibility and HD patch for Worms Armageddon: http://worms2d.info/Updates_(Worms_Armageddon)


    SchemeEddy is a must-have too, with this tool you can easily create your own weapon schemes without having to unlock everything in-game first. It works with both WA and WWP.

    Did anyone ever make a patch to get Bloodrayne 2 to work on multi-core systems? As well as fixing the resolution issues?

    MDK WASD + mouse controls and best graphics, this is not exactly a patch but it's handy for lazy people and future me:

    Open MDK.cfg, delete all lines and paste:

    RMB=Sniper Rifle
    Scroll Wheel=Zoom
    Space=Jump

    One small issue with this setup is that you'll have to use W S and the left and right arrow keys during re-entry stages.

    a simple autohotkey script can remap the left and right arrows to A and D.

    Best Sim City Patcher: after running this baby you'll be able play SC3000 in HD. Seems to work swimmingly.

    Codex 2014 Make the Codex Great Again! Grab the Codex by the pussy
    (Not sure if these have been posted)

    Civilization 2 required patches and stuffs to play the game on modern systems.

    The unofficial x64 patch for Civ 2 - fixes problems such as the game crashing whenever a text prompt comes up.

    To play the videos the Indeo codec set is required - The download here worked for me.

    This all assumes that you can get the game running on x64 systems to begin with - currently that's hard to do since the installer for "regular" Civilization 2 is a 16-bit program, which x64 systems just laugh at. But Civilization 2 Multiplayer Gold Edition has a 32-bit installer, so you can use that.

    (For Civilization 2: Test of Time there's a whole set of patches, fixes and stuffs that are unrelated to the older, superior versions of the game, so I won't list them here.)

    I think not mentioned up to now:

    John Romero gave out the source code of Daikatana to the game community who ported and fixed messing with the game.
    Latest release v1.3 from July 2016 http://www.daikatananews.net/

    indeed, still work to do by the community ;)
    But they are trying...and the ports for modern systems and some map fixes are effective ;)

    Did someone mentioned already Need for Speed III (1998)?

    http://veg.by/en/projects/nfs3/

    "Full widescreen and HD resolutions support. You can easily use resolutions like 1920×1200. Now the game supports all aspect ratios from the 5:4 to 16:9, inclusive 4:3 and 16:10."

    While not quite a patch, this is how to play Dark Souls: Prepare to Die edition in borderless fullscreen 16:10 (or any non-16:9 aspect ratio):

    1. Install DSFix, Widescreen Fixer 3.4 (or later). - do not install widescreen fixer to program files!
    2. Download the DS:PtD plugin from here: http://3dsurroundgaming.com/WSF.html and extract it to "..\Widescreen Fixer\Plugins"
    3. In DXFix.ini, set your native desktop resolution and BorderlessFullscreen is to 0 (disabled).
    4. In-game, make sure your game is set to fullscreen and your desktop resolution, with AA disabled. exit dark souls.
    5. Follow the instructions here starting at number 7: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3060445 Note that the default hotkey for widescreen fixer is the multiply key '*' on the numpad, and that you must leave widescreen fixer running!
    6. Launch dark souls, change the in-game fullscreen option to disabled. exit the game
    7. In DSfix.ini, set BorderlessFullscreen 1 (enabled).
