New AIO patch update – multiple bug fixes

Ucyborg has released a new version of his AiO patch for Drakan. Here are the new features and bug fixes:-

  • Added option to turn on/off redirection of user data to user’s Documents folder.
  • Screenshots will go to Screenshots subfolder and the old screenshots won’t be overwritten.
  • Added option to disable the usage of performance counter for timing.
  • Game will no longer force-create registry key with A3D settings for old Aureal sound cards.
  • Reverted change from previous update that caused “No Servers Listed” message in server browser remain on screen permanently.
  • Deleting last user defined server from server browser will now delete servers.txt file from disk, previously the file remained on disk with 1 server entry, which showed up on the list again after refreshing server list.
  • Replaced PeekMessage call with GetMessage in a message loop for Riot Engine Options dialog, taking care of excessive CPU utilization.

  • Removed now redundant compatibility database from the archive, you may remove “Drakan SDB” entry from programs list or using Compatibility Administrator if you’ve installed it.
  • Empty DebugLog.txt will no longer be created when opening 3D view in Level Editor.
  • Sounds played in Level Editor 3D view will no longer be muted when window loses focus.
