Shame there's no 32bit colour mode but hey, for £3.59 I'll happily complete the unholy Build trinity*.

Yeah, I already had the DOS version on Steam.

*Does Powerslave EX count now that it has a Windows 10 mouse patch?

It doesn't change at all, and resets to the defaults (borderless @ native res) as soon as I leave the menu. Works fine starting up with the options manually edited.

I know, but it's really awful and basically no other engines do things this way. (Other than some Unity games which don't seem to pay a lot of attention to these kinds of details.)

Also aware of this, but it's a bit annoying. At least it seems to remember the current autorun state in savegames, so I'll only have to do it once per start. :shrug:

How do i do sound mods?

Can i put new sound effects into the .KPF -file? There is no folder for sounds, so i assume that i can create a new folder. How should the folder be named (sounds / sound / sfx / audio)?

I created a .kpf for testing which changes cultist death sounds with another sound, but it doesn't seem to be loading. Where should i put the new .kpf?

Well, this is somewhat disappointing.
Here's a video by Civvie 11 listing a number of glaring issues
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkG29e-nE-A
I picked it up earlier, now I'm hoping they'll put out some patches to do the game justice.
Haven't gotten around to trying it yet but i did make sure it ran and got a feel for the mouselook which was okay, except for the hateful pitch limit even in full 3d mouselook mode. I also really dislike that there's no option to have sprites align to camera fully (is that what y-shearing is?)

Yeah a loooot of work is needed here, the game simply wasn't ready to be released IMO. NBlood is still superior in terms of accuracy in this regard...

The modern improvements that come with Fresh Supply ARE nice though. I'm sure the issues will be ironed out with time. It's just unfortunate that it was released too early.

If you have the Steam version, there's already a public beta accessible in in the game's properties that squashes a good few issues.

I really hope they fix all the issues with this, it's so close to being great! Also strange that it doesn't have any anisotropic filtering. If we could just get the best of both worlds from Fresh Supply (much better mouse feel and proper 3D renderer) and GDX (proper game accuracy, anisotropic filtering, doesn't crash) it would be perfect!

A welcome list of fixes, although still not perfect yet. Hope they keep at it until everyone shuts up. :P

A few more tiny baby patches have been released today, fixing little one-off issues like trouble hitting switches in certain maps.

Also: For GOG folks who don't use the Galaxy client, the patched version now has an installer available.

"For future issues, we will have to recommend contacting Atari about them."

Welp, it looks like support for this game has ended. :mrgreen:

Going by the way things were at release, to be real blunt, I can't say I'm surprised... alright boyos, nothing more to see here. Let's go back to NBlood or GDX.

Basically, the control of the various storefront pages has been passed from Night Dive to Atari. Night Dive can still produce patches (and from the sounds of things there may be some smaller ones in the future?) but they have to be sent to Atari first.

So not so much an apocalypse as a return to the natural order of licensed-game bureaucracy, for better or worse.

I don't know. To me it seems more of "this game didn't make as much money as we thought it would (certainly not near the amount people suggested it would) so we're diverting the amount of funding going into this".

Nope, it's exactly as Kinsie said. Just returning the game back to the natural order of bureaucracy. Us having control of the store page from the get go is actually not normal for these sorts of titles. Atari are still interested in us doing updates.
