Over the last few days I've been playing DarkXL(really great work lucius!) but a few things started to annoy me(especially the Nar Shaddaa crash that we all know).. and I don't want to wait until a new version is released
That's why I made this!
Basically DarkXL_Fix is a hack(sort of) that patches code into DarkXL in order to fix certain bugs/apply patches.
List of fixes/patches currently included:
- - Nar Shadda crash fix
- Possible to pickup mortar gun and the assault cannon
- Reset Life, Health and stuff like that(http://xlengine.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=1055)
This is compiled via msvc10 so you need the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) in order for it to work properly.
2. Extract contents of the archive to the folder where DarkXL.exe resides in
3. Run DarkXL (you should see a text "Alpha 9.50 DarkFX" in the lower right corner of the screen in the main menu if everything worked)
If you experience crashes or don't want to enable a certain patch just open
"darkxl_fix.ini" via your favorite text editor. You can use true/false to enable or disable a certain patch.
Why is the DLL named d3d9.dll?:
It's called a DLL proxy. DarkXL uses DirectX9 which is why it loads d3d9.dll. I use this so darkxl_fix get's automatically loaded.
Where's the source, Luke?:
Here! ( take care src is hacked together - I warned you )
