    I played Anachronox this year, and one of the problems I noticed was the incorrect transparency and lack of fog. It was mentioned in one of the threads linked here, but I didn't see a solution there. However, I did eventually find something that fixed it: QindieGL

    Perhaps other wrappers might work, but this seemed to run without any problems.

    Also, I should have mentioned this before - my Sin patches aren't specifically only for the Steam version. I did post them on the Steam forums, but that also included another version for the retail/GOG releases of the game, and as well as patches for the expansion pack, Wages of Sin, too. The patches for Valve games are still Steam-only, though.

    Anyway, here's an example of the sort of thing I mean about Anachronox:

    The Remaster is actually good now if you play it in Retro mode, or whatever it's called.

    Tried Syndicate DeBloom for Syndicate (2012) and it works fine. Turns out the game is not that bad, specially after experiencing a decade of decline.

    my understanding is, that in May 2018 the unofficial version "Bugs Fix 1.6.0.0105" (v.33) got included in the official patch. Since then, the unofficial patch development continued while there was no official patch anymore. So, the latest AoD version is the official patched (May 2018) + latest unofficial patch ("Bugs Fix 1.6.0.0119" (v.30)) from 11 January 2019.

    Here's a mod from steamcommunity.com:

    PS3 Button Prompts for Xbox Controllers

    Steps:
    1. Download this file:
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1oGXSEN ... sp=sharing

    2. Locate your Yakuza 0 game folder

    3. Proceed to go into this folder:
    Yakuza 0\media\data\2dpar

    4. Back up the file:
    sprite_c.par

    5. copy/move the file you downloaded on step one to this folder and replace the one already in it.
    And you're done.

    #Spekkiopatch

    The hashtag should make it easier for spekkio to find patches if my post gets moved.

    Discworld Noir can finally be played on modern OS.

    Install the game, the installer works fine on W10.
    Paste contents of the zip in install folder, overwrite existing files.
    Double click tin3_dxd.exe to launch te game.

    Change the desktop resolution to a 4:3 resolution if the game is stretched.

    Apparently some slack-jawed, popamole-loving moderator unstickied this thread again.

    Guys, stop that.

    It's just the Mods adjusting to current, popamole-loving 'Dex demographic. I don't think there are that many current unsers playing something else than the AAA newshit.

    Understandable decission from business POV.

    It is true, my sources tell me EA and Ubisoft are paying the Kodex top dollar to bury threads like this.
