Re: Drakan stalls on loading screen

Well, he already tried patching the game to 445, then applying AiO Patch and it still didn't work for some reason. That crash after selecting difficulty is a different problem and it occurs on every modern graphics card without unofficial patches, be it Intel, AMD or nVidia. I managed to get CD imag...

Re: Discovered some new commands/cheats!

Since the source code is not available for this game I definitely coudn't look there for answers. But you can basically open any program/game that doesn't have some special protection in any of those special programs called disassemblers/debuggers which show you the program code in assembly language...

Re: Drakan stalls on loading screen

I'm guessing it could be corrupted installation. Does it help if you completely uninstall the game, reinstall it then only apply the official 445 patch found here ? I believe there is more than one variant of 445 patch. When I freshly install the game from original CD and launch it, the string in lo...

Discovered some new commands/cheats!

Yesterday, I was messing around with Drakan using debugger. Wanted to figure out how foghack cheat works but instead, I have discovered some commands that can be typed in singleplayer after pressing the backslash key or whatever you have set for chat in multiplayer. I haven't seen them mentioned any...

Re: Strange Glitches

It has something to do with bump mapping. Looks like it's not implemented correctly in 10th Anniversary Mod. It's the effect that makes Arokh and water in-game look beautiful. Turn bump mapping off in Riot Engine options and the glitches will go away but turning off stock effects really defeats the ...

Re: Won't start!

I was playing with Windows 8 in the days before official release. Had nothing but trouble with it. Game was lagging terribly and fullscreen didn't work, there were borders around the window... And Drakan wasn't the only old game that behaved badly on Windows 8, but worked great on 7. Windows 8 is ju...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

I connected to your server today and it worked without issues :D The server is also visible in Qtracker. I also noticed another annoying bug. If you're connecting to a server via external server browser, your dragon skin resets, no matter what. Same thing also happens if you start the game in develo...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

I officially gave up on the NAT problem. Someone more experienced with that sort of thing will have to look into it. Until then, I guess Hamachi or Tunngle are the only options.

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

UCyborg, thank you for your work. I never realized the cut FOV when playing with widescreen was a bug... The game certainly looks different now :D And I can now confirm the patch worked perfectly well, as I could join AT's server with or without Hamachi. The only pesky bug that remains - and that y...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes

IMPORTANT UPDATE: So, I wanted to get to the bottom of what was causing the game to crash at the difficulty screen in the first place. It looks like every time menus are displayed, DirectX's method CreateSurface is called for the purpose of creating additional special surface where the last frame i...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes

Oh great! Glad to hear it finally worked. So I don't need to fuss around with hex editor and OllyDbg :D When Shelim starts working on 10th Anniversary Mod again, he could implement all those fixes in it so we won't need any extra DLLs lying around and just have all goodies accesible by launching thr...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes

Ok, that's because our files don't match. Do you mind uninstalling Drakan and reinstalling? But keep your savegames, Drakan.cfg and my patch. It's really frustrating since i got 3 computers at home and multiplayer between them just works without any hitches.
