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.

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes

Ok this will take a while, a lot of differences between the files and I can't remember the offset where that fix is located. In the meanwhile, can you try joining my server with just my patch applied: 31.15.163.139 Doubt it'll work but there's no harm in trying. Edit: Oh, didn't know you were launch...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes

One problem, 10th Anniversary Mod's Drakan.exe contains a broken fix for Session creation failed error, which breaks ability to join the server even if it's running on a Windows XP system where inet_addr function natively behaves as the game expects. Dang it, I wonder what causes your game to crash....

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes

Glad to hear you managed to get it installed without any further complications. I updated instructions so they should work for everyone, including those with User Account Control enabled, since that seems to cause inability to simply open command window from anywhere as admin. I added yours and the ...
