I finally got Tonic Trouble Special Edition working properly!

So yeah, Tonic Trouble Special Edition now runs properly. Plus with the OEM patch (and save files working), I can play the whole game. So this means at some point, if I ever fix my uploading schedule, I can do a full Let's Play of this game. On a side note, I don't think I'll be having blogger host a clip again.

So, now for the part where I explain what I had to do. I downloaded a program called dgVoodoo and copied the DirectX dlls from the MS folder into the game's install folder (UbiSoft/Ed/). The fancy effects like anialising can be activated in the dgVoodoo control panel. Remember to add the install folder first, overwise you'll just be editing the default config file.

Before starting the game, you should take a look at the setup program to set up the graphics settings. I've never had any luck with any resolution other than 800x600 with this game, but it seems I can get dgVoodoo to get it to run in 720p and even 1080p.

As for the OEM patch, a Google search for the filename (tt_castlepatch.exe) brought me to a UbiSoft support page where I found out they still host the file. after letting that extract itself, open the program it placed in the game data folder (Ubisoft/Ed/GameData). There's also a 3D sound card patch you can get off of The Patch Scrolls. You just need to place the files in the game's dll folder (Ubisoft/Ed/dll).

While I don't know if it helped, I also followed a post that said that they also turn on compatibility mode (Windows XP SP3) for all of the programs in the game folder (Ubisoft/Ed) and the disc itself. Also, the game will need to run in administrator mode. To be fair, this is from that era where security was a lot more relaxed on PCs.

Let's Play: Doom 2: Head 2 Head Xmas

Watch here.

In this Christmas video, Santa must kill the demons because of reasons.

Note: In this video I was wrong (big surprise), the was has 32 levels.

So yeah, this is pretty much the last video of 2018. Man, I did a really bad job at uploading stuff this year. Maybe 2019 might turn out to be a better year?

Doom II wad: H2H-Xmas

Featured videos music:
Rise of the Triad - God Rest Ye Deadly Gentlemen

In this part, I fight more imps, that wizard continues to refuse to help and I have to fight an incubus... allegedly.

Let's Play: Futurama the Game Part 17

Watch here.

In this part, I have to do even more of those memory puzzles, I still haven't looked up how to deal with the exploding guys and a boss... thing happens.

Let's Play: Futurama the Game Part 16

Watch here.

In this part, I realise I made a bad choice in console games to play, the skeleton pun well continues to be bone dry and I struggle to figure out why I can't punch a thing made of lava.

Man, 2018 is nearly over and I've only uploaded 67 videos. Maybe next year will be better?

Let's Play: DOOM 2016 Part 4

Watch here.

In this part, I smash some important looking stuff, I take a look at something I forgot from last time, and another fool fails to summon the strength to slay the Doomguy.

Let's Play: Silver Part 1

Watch here.

In this part, we get some backstory, a lot of ladies are captured, and we meet the plucky rebels who don't seem to be doing much.

Also, yes, 1080p at 60fps was totally necessary for this game of all games. On different note, it turns out that Steam has a more updated version than the GOG version I’m using... typical.

Let's Play: DOOM 2016 Part 3

Watch here.

In this video, I finally make a 2018 video, Hell Knights show up and the Doomguy encounters a force that even he is helpless against...

Sorry about the Steam FPS counter. I have no idea why it's on and I didn't notice it there until I was editing the footage. On another note, should I keep uploading in 60fps or go back to downscaling to 30fps?

Let's Play: DOOM 2016 Part 2

Watch here.

In this part a robot and a lady who seems to be on the verge of death try to justify messing about with the forces of hell some more. Still not convinced that was a good idea.

Let's Play: Futurama the Game Part 15

Watch here.

In this part, Leela continues her adventures on the sun, the skeletons continue to disappoint and my lack of memory is once again put to the test.
